'Rules Don't Apply' review: Chooses the wrong focus

Eccentric, mysterious, larger than life - Warren Beatty and Howard Hughes have more than a few things in common. Beatty kicks off his Hughes-centric film, "Rules Don't Apply," with a quote attributed to the entrepreneur: "Never check an interesting fact." It's clear that he doesn't mean for this to be a biopic, but he runs into trouble assuming that his take on Hughes is interesting. Not only is it uninteresting, but the fixation on Hughes drags down the other, better parts of the film.

Movie review: 'La La Land' is perfect marriage of style, story

In relationships, and in music, it's all about the timing. So Damien Chazelle's "La La Land" is the perfect marriage of style and story - a good old fashioned musical about the ups and downs of one love story that struggles to stay in tempo. It's also a sealed-with-a-kiss love letter to the city where it's set, and the unabashed dreamers who inhabit the environs of Los Angeles.

Movie review: 'Harry Benson: Shoot First' is terrific portrait of witness to history

The charming documentary "Harry Benson: Shoot First" introduces us to its subject - the photographer Harry Benson - first through his work, and then winds its way back to the beginning. It's a structure that echoes Harry's personal ethos: The work comes first. It's through Harry's photos, and through his friendships and interactions with his subjects, that you get to know the man, a photographer who has captured and made history through his lens.

Dressed in a sharp black suit and a crisp white shirt elegantly unbuttoned to reveal an expanse of chest, he confidently strode across his efficiently austere West Hollywood workroom/office to greet a visitor, everything around him seeming an extension of a singular aesthetic vision.
