Lew Chudd, founder of Imperial Records, with the label's star turn Ricky Nelson
'"Lew Chudd had a remarkable knack of filling distributors' warehouses with the wrong sounding records," said Johnny Vincent, President of Ace Records and a former distributor himself. It's true Lew Chudd was a business man first, and as a record man he came a poor second. On the other hand professional jealousy, and perhaps sneaking admiration, may lie behind Vincent's remarks, since in Fats Domino, Slim Whitman and Ricky Nelson, Lew Chudd had three of the hottest stars  in the 1950's and their records did not impose too much on distributors' valuable floor space.'
(from Rhythm and Blues in New Orleans by John Broven)

Godzilla Poster

Godzilla

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

It's less interested in a giant monster's destructive progress than in what it might feel like to be a tiny human watching it close up, or far away, or on TV.

Million Dollar Arm Poster

Million Dollar Arm

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

It may earn a few runs early in the game, but is far from a satisfying grand slam of family entertainment.

The Immigrant Poster

The Immigrant

Review by Dan Callahan

"The Immigrant" has many moments of exceptional power and rare delicacy, none more potent than the final shot, which achieves a haunting visual balance between the characters of Ewa and Bruno that cannot be achieved for them in their interactions…

A Night in Old Mexico Poster

A Night in Old Mexico

Review by Sheila O'Malley

"A Night in Old Mexico" is so in love with Duvall that it doesn't do the necessary work to make any of this believable.

Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case Poster

Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case

Review by Christy Lemire

"Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case" recalls the same spirit that drove "This Is Not a Film," the inventive and deeply moving 2012 documentary Iranian director Jafar Panahi shot while under house arrest in his high-rise apartment. Both are about the…

Chinese Puzzle Poster

Chinese Puzzle

Review by Glenn Kenny

A movie that glories in the worst and most unexamined bourgeois-bohemian clich├ęs, concocting for its protagonist a midlife crisis in which everybody is attractive and smart and nobody ever goes wanting in spite of constant complaints about being broke.

Wolf Creek 2 Poster

Wolf Creek 2

Review by Simon Abrams

Yes, there is technically nothing gratuitous about ultra-violence in a film for which the main selling point is gore. Unfortunately, there's also nothing else to latch onto in "Wolf Creek 2."

Don Peyote Poster

Don Peyote

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

This inept comedy about a stoner lapsing into apocalyptic reveries on the day of his wedding is a couple of notches above a home movie.
