A Separation sustains subtlety, from expert restraint, throughout its entire runtime. However, this subtlety speaks volumes about the societal norms and expectations of Iran. The film focuses on the turbulent relationship of husband and wife Nader and Simin, brought to life by Leila Hatami and Peyma...

Fracture is unlike any of the courtroom thrillers I’ve ever seen. Directed by Gregory Hoblit, who gave us another incredible courtroom thriller in Primal Fear, which introduced the world to Edward Norton, uses a similar formula with Fracture to again strike success.

There are a lot of different ways for an album to be “fun” -- there are lots of rock and punk bands that are fun to listen to because they’re full of energy and attitude, and even slower or sadder music can be fun in a weird way, but one band that really captures the essence of what fun music i...
