    Oscar Watch: Which Indie Outsiders Have a Shot at Best Actress?

    Last night I watched Ellen Barkin act her heart out in Sam Levinson's Sundance screenplay-winner "Another Happy Day" (Phase 4, November 18), which is saddled with an unfortunate generic title. At 57, Barkin has been around the block a few times, and while the movie opens with her two y...

    Melancholia

    I had really no desire to see Melancholia the new film by Lars von Trier because the guy is such an ass and every time he opens his mouth he inserts his foot into it.  But when Kirsten Dunst won best actress at Cannes I was intrigued, and then when other smart folks whose opinions I value also ...

    Melancholia - movie review

    Lest anyone mistake the man who made Antichrist as a purveyor of feel-good entertainment, Lars von Trier has opted for truth in advertising by titling his new film Melancholia. The Danish filmmaker enjoys courting controversy, and some of his films seem deliberately designed to provoke and upset aud...

    Kirsten Dunst Says Sci-Fi Romance 'Upside Down' Is Like An Accessible 'Brazil'

    For a moment there, it seemed like Kirsten Dunst might have found her career floundering in the wake of the Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" trilogy, but not only has the actress found her footing, her upcoming roster of films would be the envy of any thesp in Hollywood. There is no better indication than "Melancholia" that Dunst is moving in a new direction. While opinion may be split on Lars Von Trier's film, there is no denying that Dunst's turn in the lead role is easily the best performance of her career, and those on the Croisette thought so too as she walked home with the Best Actress prize this spring. And unlike the events in the film, the f...

    Beef Watch: Nicolas Winding Refn 'Repulsed' By Lars Von Trier! Von Trier Says 'Fuck Him'! Porno!

    Another day, another right turn to the ridiculously stupid fall-out from Lars Von Trier's "nazi" statements. Good old humorless reporters at Cannes loved raking noted provocateur Lars Von Trier over the coals for his joking "pro-Nazi" stance before the organization dubbed him persona non grata. The ...

    Cannes Review: Lars Von Trier Confronts Depression Head On In The Grim 'Melancholia'

    Two years after Lars Von Trier caused a major stir at Cannes with his contentious "Antichrist," the enfant terrible returns to the Croisette in a much more subdued mood with "Melancholia." Despite the premise, which sounds tailor-made for Von Trier to provoke and prod his audience, the film is easil...
