Robert Altman's murder tale reeks of insider access and Hollywood hipster Bs; its main claim to greatness is its fifty-plus star cameos. It may no longer seem as smart as it looked in 1992, but they don't make 'em any slicker than this. The Player Blu-ray The Criterion Collection 812 1992 / Color /1:85 widescreen / 124 min. / Available through The Criterion Collection / Street Date May 24, 2016 / 39.95 Starring Tim Robbins, Greta Scacchi, Fred Ward, Whoopi Goldberg, Peter Gallagher, Brion James, Cynthia Stevenson, Vincent D'Onofrio, Lyle Lovett. Cinematography Jean Lépine Original Music Thomas Newman Written by Michael Tolkin from his novel Produced by David Brown, Michael Tolkin, Nick Wechsler Directed by Robert Altman

Reviewed by Glenn Erickson

Robert Altman's filmography is undergoing what looks like a full retrospective through Criterion; even the 1975 title Nashville came out not long ago. This very successful later picture marks a revitalization of the director's career. It's sort of a Kafkaesque spin on Hail, »

Castle season 8 episode 15 review: Fidelis Ad Mortem

Castle and Beckett's relationship remaining a secret is a stretch too far in the latest episode of Castle...

This review contains spoilers.

8.15 Fidelis Ad Mortem

The term “deconstruction” tends to be one that confuses a lot of people and with good reason. If you look at the word itself, you might think, as most people do, that it means to pull something apart piece by piece—to analyse it, really.

When theorists use the term, however, they are talking about something else. When they throw it out there, they aren’t really talking about what the reader or viewer is doing when they look at a text, but what the text does to itself. Jacques Derrida, who coined the term, spent forty years of his life trying to define it, so it’s complex, but Richard Rorty sums it up nicely when he said, that it is »

Castle Recap: How to Get Away With Quantico-Like Murder

21 March 2016 8:25 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

This week on ABC’s Castle, Beckett returned to her old stomping grounds when a police academy recruit officer was found murdered under suspicious circumstances.

RelatedCould Castle Solve ABC’s Tuesday Problem? And More TV Qs!

As entertaining as it was to see Beckett and the boys back in the police academy hallways, where Kate’s name is apparently on half the plaques and trophies (and evokes great reverence from recruits), that A-story was offset by the maddening unfolding of what is now the Rick’s Missing Time/LokSat Hybrid Mystery.

Gotham Season 2 Episode 14 Review ‘This Ball of Mud and Meanness’

17 March 2016 8:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr reviews the fourteenth episode of Gotham season 2…

David Mazouz’s Bruce Wayne might look like a preppy who needs to get on the Mars Bar diet, but don’t let that cover fool you. Because this week he gets to exhibit his kick ass colours facing off against Matches Malone. A somewhat less monstrous version of a cold-blooded killer thanks to Michael Bowen’s layered performance. Who gives Malone the humanity and regret which strips away the animal to show a man beneath.

In more ways than one Wayne’s expectations are his undoing which temporarily throws him off guard. Mazouz handles this delicate dialogue scene with skill holding his own against the seasoned veteran, who is holding all the aces dialogue wise. In many ways Bowen’s generosity here verges on the paternal, which is at once disturbing yet highly engaging from an audience perspective.

Gotham season 2 episode 14 review: This Ball Of Mud And Meanness

Lori Petty makes a wonderful guest appearance in this week’s dialogue-heavy delight from Gotham season 2…

This review contains spoilers

2.14 This Ball Of Mud And Meanness

Holy cupcake fight club, Batman! This week’s Gotham episode was quite possibly its best episode yet, due to the fact that it finally addressed the ‘who killed the Waynes?’ mystery head on. After two years of waiting, David Mazouz has finally got to portray Bruce Wayne with a real human dilemma – what to do now that he’s found the killer.

This Ball Of Mud And Meanness' centrepiece was the dialogue-focused showdown between Bruce and Matches Malone (impressive guest star Michael Bowen). In this scene, Mazouz delivered a nuanced and troubled performance which should serve to banish any lingering doubts that he isn’t perfect for the role of young Bruce Wayne.

This scene pried right into the character, asking »

Review: ‘Blindspot,’ ‘Gotham’ Returns Explore Mythology, Launch New Threats

26 February 2016 7:30 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Blindspot” was a bright spot for NBC through much of the fall, while “Gotham” – after a successful first season – has looked shakier on Fox. So both return from their midseason breaks on Feb. 29 with something to prove, as the former picks up on its cliffhanger, while the latter hopes to heat up its ratings with a new arc featuring the villains Mr. Freeze and Hugo Strange.

Frankly, the big twist that capped “Blindspot’s” fall run (and Spoiler Alert if you’re not caught up) had a pretty blatant “Total Recall” vibe, with the anonymous super-soldier Jane (Jaimie Alexander) being shown a taped message from herself. If that video is to be believed, the reason the FBI discovered her naked and tattooed in Times Square (a title that Discovery is probably developing at this moment) is all part of a plot that she hatched, the details of which remain vague, »

Yep, within 11 episodes from now the central mystery that’s plagued Master Bruce since the pilot will be apparently be solved. Here's a reminder of the pilot's murder scene for anyone who might wish to refresh their memory before we get into speculation mode…

Will this burly killer be someone we’ve already met? Will it really be Matches Malone, as teased by a possibly lying Silver St. Cloud? And is the identity of the killer really important, »
