    Sundance Review: The Searing 'Ain't Them Bodies Saints' Burns With Intense & Visceral Portent

    Set in 1970s Texas, but stationed inside an authentic milieu that feels timeless and classic, David Lowery's second feature-length effort, "Ain't Them Bodies Saints," is the culmination of a filmmaker who has put in over a decade of work in the trenches as an editor, cinematographer, writer, electri...

    Casey Affleck To Star In Ben Affleck & Matt Damon Produced 'Race To The South Pole'; Whitey Bulger Biopic Still In The Cards

    What's better than one Affleck? Two Afflecks. And what's better than two Afflecks? Two Afflecks and a Damon. That's right all three are coming together, putting their Voltron like powers toward a project that's a bit unexpected.
