    Now and Then: In 'Contagion' and 'Children of Men,' Disaster Runs Cold and Hot

    The opening minutes of "Contagion" are all surface, literally. A bowl of peanuts on the bartop, a swiped credit card, an elevator button, the human hand: each is a vector of death itself, a pandemic already in motion. With the rasp of a cough, a title card tells us we're in "Day 2." It's terrifying....

    Gus Van Sant Steps In To Helm Matt Damon’s Former Directorial Debut

    Sleeping on a story to see where it develops will get you burned. Case in point: yesterday’s story on Matt Damon walking away from his untitled directorial debut, which had been co-written by the Academy Award-winning writer (“Good Will Hunting”) and his pal John Krasinski, whom he hit it off with w...

    We Bought A Zoo—movie review

    If your favorite descriptive word for a movie is “edgy,” you might want to skip this one.

    Frances McDormand Joins John Krasinski In Matt Damon's Directorial Debut

    They are still, as far as we're aware, the best of pals, but it's hard not to see a vague sense of rivalry between Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. After all, they arrived together, the disgustingly young stars and writers of "Good Will Hunting," winning an Oscar for their trouble with ...

    Mitt Romney Does Letterman's Top Ten

    David Letterman’s Top Ten List has become the place politicians go for damage control (remember Rick Perry’s Top Ten Excuses for his “I forgot” moment?), or to try so liven up a robotic image or revive a faltering campaign. The robotic and the faltering problems both apply to...
