    'Zero Dark Thirty' Is the Best Movie of the Year, But Mark Boal and Kathryn Bigelow Can't Explain It

    It may come as no great surprise that "Zero Dark Thirty," a reteaming of "The Hurt Locker" director Kathryn Bigelow with her screenwriter and partner, Mark Boal, that tracks the decade-long hunt for Osama bin Laden, delivers the dramatic goods. Last week, it won top honors from the New York Film Cri...

    The Little Jolie-Pitts' Dad Is A Lethal Weapon In 'Killing Them Softly'

    If you need proof that casting is everything, Killing Them Softly delivers it. This noirish crime story about hired killers would be an entirely different, less enjoyable film without Brad Pitt as an expert hitman. I’d say he’s working against type, but really, isn’t his type ...

    New Pics Of Brad Pitt Doing Business In America In 'Killing Them Softly'

    In case you haven't been able to tell by the pretty excellent posters for "Killing Them Softly," the film is as much about America and the price of doing business as it is about the "plot" (such as it is) about a high stakes poker game that gets jacked by two hapless would be...

    First Look At James Gandolfini In 'Zero Dark Thirty,' CIA Role Revealed

    Finally securing its winter release spot as a compelling take on recent political and military events -- and not the piece of Obama propaganda as initially thought by watchdog groups -- Kathryn Bigelow's Osama bin Laden drama “Zero Dark Thirty” can now carry on being an actual piece ...

    'Not Fade Away': NYFF Review Round-Up for 'Soprano' Creator David Chase's Film Debut

    "Sopranos"-creator David Chase had his feature directorial debut "Not Fade Away" October 4 at NYFF, to mostly positive response from the early reviewers (catalogued below).

    NYFF Review: Rock 'N' Roll Dreams Are Fleeting & Familiar In David Chase's Uneven 'Not Fade Away'

    For a film that’s ostensibly set to the vibrant pulse of early ‘60s rock 'n' roll and blues -- The Rolling Stones, the early Beatles, Bo Diddley, etc. -- David Chase’s directorial debut, “Not Fade Away,” sure has a curious, circuitous and eventually long-winded tempo. Set in 1964, just a few months ...
