A delayed title card is a bold cinematic move, a deliberate tactic usually used to punctuate a powerhouse setpiece full of invention and intrigue (see: “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” “127 Hours”). It jumps in as a provocation, as though to say, “You thought that was cool? We haven’t even shown you the opening credits yet, so strap in.” In “Too Late,” after a 15-minute single take involving a fedora-wearing Rider Strong and Dash Mihok as hiking drug dealers talking movie tropes, a stripper who drops the word “sanguine” in conversation with a gangster-turned-park ranger, and sloppily executed, Altman-esque zooms across the skyline of downtown Los Angeles, instead, my only thought was simply, “Jesus, no.” What first-time director Dennis Hauck establishes here is a bizarro La that’s just picked up from where “Pulp Fiction” left off, and yet where “The Boondock Saints” hasn’t happened yet — it’s »

Fan conventions are big business now, with attendees paying hundreds of dollars for front-row seats, autographs, and photo ops with their favorite TV stars. But in 1972, a convention that gathered fans and gave them the chance to meet their TV idols was a rather new concept. It was in that year, from January 21-23, that Trekkies got together for what’s often recognized as the first true “Star Trek” convention. A convention specifically for enthusiasts of the Gene Roddenberry show had been organized before — in March 1969, at the Newark Public Library — though that event did not have any celebrity guests. It did feature a slide show of “Star Trek” aliens, skits, and a fan panel discussion. The January 1972 con was held at the Statler Hilton Hotel (now Hotel Pennsylvania) in New York, and among the celebrity guests were Roddenberry, Majel Barrett, D.C. Fontana. The legend goes that 500 people were expected to attend, »

2 Rabbits is the kind of film that’s spawned from an obsession with fragmented criminal thrillers akin to Pulp Fiction, The Boondock Saints, Snatch, so on, and so forth. But these movies are either masterfully crafted or luckily hyped, and while Afonso Poyart commands style, his storytelling can’t quite pull off the chaotic abandon of such unwieldy voices. As you can tell from the image above, expect the unexpected from Poyart’s mind, yet the barrage of visual obscurity becomes overbearing as his screenplay refuses to stop shifting. No one is who they seem, and no character is insignificant – but with so many moving parts, it’s hard to keep them all working fluidly.
While a host of characters make an appearance, the linchpin to it all is a slacker named Edgar (Fernando Alves Pinto). His plan, in its simplest form, is to bring justice back to Brazil, while »
