Review: Blue Valentine


This year has been full of actors and actresses pouring their hearts out on screen in hopes of gaining one of those shinny Oscars. What none of them realized was that Blue Valentine was being released on the last day of the year. This film is nothing short of brilliant from story, to acting, to […]

I Love You Phillip Morris – Trailer (Christmas Edition)


I Love You Phillip Morris is a film that we were sad to miss at the Philadelphia Film Festival. It is also a film in which Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor play in roles that I think they themselves, never thought they would play. Two gay men falling in love with a mix of Jim […]

His film 127 Hours has played many festivals and is now in limited theaters (opening in Philadelphia today). But where did Danny Boyle come from? He may be known as “That Slumdog Guy” but in reality, you may know him a lot better than you think. (And if you don’t know him, find out why […]

PFF 2010 Review: The Room


I’ll start this review by simply saying that The Room is absolutely the kind of film that needs to be seen to be believed.  No amount of words or screen captures can accurately display the sheer insanity of this movie. The midnight showing of The Room marks the first time the little known masterpiece has […]

Conviction is in theaters today and luckily some of of the cast, crew, and inspiration generously gave up some time to talk to Cinedork about the film.

PFF 2010 Review: Black Swan


Review by Guest writer: Dan Tabor from the infamous Black Swan may very well be one of the best horror films of 2010, when it it finally hits screens December 3rd. I mean you’re probably saying to yourself, “isn’t this the film with Natalie Portman about her being a ballerina in Swan Lake?” Yes it […]

PFF 2010 Review: Mutant Girl Squad


What I’ve loved about the 2010 Philadelphia Film Festival is the sheer scope and variety of films that have been shown.  We have hugely anticipated films like Black Swan and established cult films like The Room, and then we have midnight fare like Mutant Girl Squad – easily the silliest Japanese film I’ve seen to […]

PFF 2010 Review: The Millennium Trilogy (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Fire, and Hornet)

(For all of you who don’t know, The Millennium Trilogy consists of the three books now films, “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”, “The Girl who Played with Fire,” and “The Girl Who […]

PFF 2010 Review: Rubber

Rubber Banner

Why do movies exist?  How are our lives bettered by seeing them? and why does a movie about a tire that goes on a killing spree exist?  No reason.  Welcome Quentin Dupieux’s (aka electronic musician Mr. Oizo) 75 minute rumination on the absurd nature of entertainment.  Yes, the killer tire movie, Rubber. Simply pigeonholing the […]

PFF 2010 Review: Peep World


Peep World is the kind of film that in this day and age might have been better suited for television.  Much like the Bluth family of Fox’s beloved but long since cancelled Arrested Development, the film chronicles the downfall of a rich family to comedic effect.  Nathan (Ben Schwartz) has written a torrid tell-all book […]
