Movie review: 'Goat' is grim look at fraternity culture

Frat life on film has tended to revolve around the comedic, portraying a roughhouse, boys-will-be-boys culture where the cruelest acts have no real consequences. "Goat" takes a different, more serious approach and it's a searing indictment of the curdled masculinity that fuels some of the more extreme frat house behaviors that have made the news. In short, it's no laughing matter.

Movie review: Kim Jee-woon's 'The Age of Shadows' is a gripping 1920s spy thriller

In the first of many commanding set pieces in "The Age of Shadows," a superb cloak-and-dagger entertainment that's set during the Japanese occupation of Korea, one man follows another through a courtyard while a wave of officers swarm across the rooftops in hot pursuit. Leaping in loose, nimble formations from one building to the next, these officers resemble nothing so much as rifle-wielding extras in a 1920s spy-thriller replay of "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon."
