  • MOVIE REVIEW: 'Lucy'

    "Lucy" is ostensibly about a heroine who becomes dramatically smarter as the movie goes on. But the experience for the audience is exactly the reverse: As she gets smarter, the movie gets dumber.

    Review: '3 Days' a fatally compromised spy tale

    Even international spies have trouble balancing work and family life, according to "3 Days to Kill," the latest lightweight action pic from writer-producer Luc Besson, here forming an unlikely (or perhaps unholy) trinity with director McG and star Kevin Costner. Surely the goal of the resulting tonal mishmash was to reignite Costner's career a la what happened for Liam Neeson after Besson's "Taken," but any possibility of sleeper-hit status has been fatally compromised by watered-down fight scenes and misguided family man dramatics.

    MOVIE REVIEW: 'The Family'

    A dark comedy about a mafia family in the witness protection program hiding out in France, “The Family” would seem to have a lot going for it: an affable premise, stars with long experience in the mafia genre and a director known for bridging the gap between French and American cinema.


  • Dior hemlines rise and designers use color, black

    Spring signals new beginnings. Not only in statement-making prints and new colors _ as the Paris spring-summer 2013 season has shown _ but in bold ideas that remap the fashion landscape.

    French director Luc Besson's biopic of Myanmar democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi has won an unusual endorsement.


  • 'Angel' shines in City of Lights
