LA Film Fest 2014
We’re back film fans with more encapsulated reviews of flicks featured in the year’s LA Film Fest and there’s some real winners and losers for sure. (And yes, we’re always rooting for the flicks to be great naysayers!) From docs with heart to dramas that are dark, we’re looking at five more flicks from the 2014 crop – check them out below!

“I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story” – Frankly this doc was not even on my radar of flicks to see, but I’m so thrilled it was passed on to me as it turned out to be my favorite film of the fest thus far. (And it’s in serious contention for my...

LA Film Fest 2014: Actress Lara Vosburgh On Fighting Drugs And D
We’re continuing our LA Film Fest 2014 coverage here at Starpulse.com with our ongoing look at standout performances that linger and this next gal delivers handsomely. In her new film "Inner Demons" actress Lara Vosburgh plays a young girl named Carson, a troubled teen who has three very different sides. She’s a typical high school kid trying to fit, who also happens to be a heroin addict, who also may be possessed by a demon. It’s quite a handful for an actress so young, but the talented Vosburgh is more then up to the challenge. In fact her role even got the attention of iconic posses...

LA Film Fest 2014
Nothing makes a movie more memorable than an actor or actress with diversity, so anyone seeing films at the LA Film Fest 2014 should remember the name Haley Lu Richardson. As a legitimate powerhouse acting double threat, Richardson has not one but two amazing and totally different performances in two separate films in the fest and they’re both equally captivating to watch. In the touching film "The Young Kieslowski," Richardson plays a sweet and charming college student who finds herself in love, pregnant and wanting to keep the baby despite heavy-duty obstacles. By contrast in the dark ...

LA Film Fest 2014 Review - Visually Stunning 'Snowpiercer' Lacks Acting Authenticity

LA Film Fest 2014 Review - Visually Stunning 'Snowpiercer' Lacks
Defying genre boundaries and playing successfully with tone has become a staple of filmmaker Bong Joon-ho. In the film "Memories of Murder" the auteur took on the traditional detective mystery, went after the monster movie with "The Host" and explored paternal responsibility with "Mother." So it’s only fitting that his latest flick "Snowpiercer" also skillfully examines separate important issues like class system and the effect of a post-apocalyptic world and turns them on their ear. But unlike the previous films from the famed Southern Korean director this one sports a mostly English la...

Critics Skewer Ryan Reynolds' 'The Captive' At Cannes Film Festi
Ryan Reynolds' new film "The Captive" was panned by critics at the Cannes International Film Festival over the weekend.

Oscar-nominated filmmaker Atom Egoyan co-wrote and directed the psychological thriller, which centers on a distraught father who searches desperately for his daughter eight years after she is kidnapped.

The audience booed when the film was screened in competition on Friday.

Variety writer Justin Chang labeled it a "ludicrous abduction thriller that finds a once-great filmmaker slipping into previously unentered realms of self-parody."

Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian cal...
