    Arthouse Audit: Controversial 'Paperboy' Leads Weak New Debuts

    Although improved from last week's weak openings, the new ones again fell below the strong performance of September's debuts. The controversial "The Paperboy" had the best overall performance. New York openers "Wuthering Heights" and "The House I Live In" managed to stand out among the rest, backed ...

    Oscars: Can Anyone Beat Philip Seymour Hoffman To Best Supporting Actor?

    Last week in our category spotlight, we took a look at the relatively thin Supporting Actress field, so it feels only natural to head over to the Supporting Actor boys this time around. And of all the acting categories, it might be the most interesting: it's not as locked-up as the leading men (whic...

    The Paperboy—movie review

    I suppose we all like a taste of Southern-gothic storytelling now and then, so I was ready to enjoy The Paperboy based on what little I’d heard ahead of time. And yes, Nicole Kidman’s unflinchingly flashy performance—in a parade of brightly colored miniskirts—is an attention-...

    'The Paperboy': Nicole, Zac and Alligators

    On screen in The Paperboy and on stage at the New York Film Festival press conference afterwards, Nicole Kidman seemed – and this is compliment though it may not sound like one—less plastic than she has in the recent past. She is fearless and pretty convincing in the film. If she lo...

    Review: Lee Daniels' 'The Paperboy' With Matthew McConaughey & Nicole Kidman Is A Disastrous Flop

    Many people will tell you that "The Paperboy" -- based on Pete Dexter's novel, brought to the screen by "Precious" director Lee Daniels -- is a trash masterpiece, an instant camp classic, so bad it's good. These people, these critics, are simply not to be trusted about an...

    Leonardo DiCaprio Looks Dapper & Matthew McConaughey Is Shockingly Skinny In 'Wolf Of Wall Street' Set Pics

    Years ago, this writer was shown "Wolves of Wall Street," a werewolf movie where no one turned into a werewolf, and there was a scene where one werewolf, still in human form, peed on another man's leg to show dominance and mark his territory. While there's probably no correlation between director Ma...

    Damn: Matthew McConaughey Joins 'The Wolf Of Wall Street'

    Killing it. That's all we can say about Matthew McConaughey, who we hope gives his agent a helluva Christmas present this year, because the actor has been lining up one great project after another without stopping for a moment. After "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past" in 2009, Mac took a couple years away...

    Exclusive: Emile Hirsch Tries To Stop The Hit In Clip From William Friedkin's 'Killer Joe' Starring Matthew McConaughey

    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. Hilarious and jaw dropping in equal measure, the movie is a fiercely entertaining good time, and while that NC-17 rating by the MPAA is a bit harsh, it speak...

    James Marsden Replaces Matthew McConaughey As JFK In Lee Daniels' 'The Butler'

    The list of actors who have portrayed John F. Kennedy on the big and small screen over the years is eclectic to say the least. Folks as varied as Greg Kinnear, Martin Donovan, Bruce Greenwood, William Petersen and even Bruce Campbell have taken on the former president's accent and enunciation to...

    Magic Mike—movie review

    All the women I know are hot to see this movie. So were the women who packed the screening I attended, and they made their feelings known during the opening strip-club number—just like the adoring women onscreen. Then the story kicked in and everything changed.
