    David Gordon Green Talks The Free-Spirited 'Prince Avalanche,' Working With Nicolas Cage & 'Suspiria'

    Sundance Review: David Gordon Green Returns To Form With The Meditative, Funny & Sublime 'Prince Avalanche'

    It's the summer of 1988 and a violent wildfire has swept through Texas, destroying 43,000 acres and some 16,000 homes. In the wake of this horrific devastation -- a freak of nature that no experts can explain -- two highway road crew workers spend the season in isolation, painting and repairing the ...

    Rome Review: 'The Motel Life' A Small But Perfectly Formed Indie With A Sweet, Sad Heart Of Gold

    On the surface, there should be nothing particularly special about producer-turned-director brothers Gabe and Alan Polsky's debut, "The Motel Life," which premieres tonight at the Rome Film Festival. Threatening to sound like indie-by-numbers on paper, the film, based on the well-received novel of t...

    As wickedly funny as it is gleefully depraved, William Friedkin's B-movie sizzler "Killer Joe" is really unlike anything you'll see this year.
