    NYFF '13: Catherine Breillat On Exposing Herself in 'Abuse of Weakness,' Starring Isabelle Huppert

    The technological hindrances suffered by controversial French filmmaker Catherine Breillat during the (very brief) New York Film Festival press conference on Wednesday for her new film "Abuse of Weakness" pale in comparison to the tremendous physical incapacities undergone by her main protagonist Ma...

    TIFF Review: Catherine Breillat’s 'Abuse Of Weakness' Starring Isabelle Huppert

    It’s unlikely a filmmaker brought a more personal narrative project to the Toronto International Film Festival than Catherine Breillat.

    Watch: First Clip From Catherine Breillat's 'Abuse of Weakness,' Starring Isabelle Huppert

    By all accounts Catherine Breillat's new, unflinchingly autobiographical film "Abuse of Weakness" (based on her novel of the same name), starring Isabelle Huppert as a thinly veined on-screen equivalent for the director, is brilliant but just as tough to watch as the director's other films. Based on...

    TIFF Review: 'The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him & Her' Starring Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, Viola Davis & More

    You’d think that with all the sappy romantic comedies that exist, "When Harry Met Sally" and Richard Linklater’s 'Before...' series (just to name the most beloved), that relationship films have run their course and said all they’ve got to say. But then this year the Palme D’Or was awarded to a film ...

    TIFF 13- Dispatch 1: Mid-Life Women in Crisis

    This is my third Toronto Film Festival and I am starting to understand how to manage it. It is an endurance test. You need to go whole hog one day and then back off a little the next in order to make it a whole week. Also it takes a while to put into words what you are seeing.

    Jesse Eisenberg, Isabelle Huppert & Gabriel Byrne To Star In Joachim Trier's 'Louder Than Bombs'

    One filmmaker who's a favorite around these parts is Norwegian Joachim Trier. The writer/director's first two features "Reprise" and "Oslo, August 31st" are impressive and expressive works, and so when it was announced well over a year ago that his next effort would be his English-language debut, we...

    Review: 'Michael H. Profession: Director' Is An Interesting But Never Essential Portrait Of Michael Haneke

    Described memorably as the Minister of Fear by the New York Times some years ago, Austrian filmmaker Michael Haneke has been terrorizing audiences and holding them emotionally and psychologically hostage ever since his career began. Fond of rigorous, excruciatingly brutal portraits of human sufferin...
