    Interview: Jake Paltrow On How Spielberg & Anime Inspired 'Young Ones,' Starring Michael Shannon & Elle Fanning

    Part western, part science fiction, wholly original—it’s not easy to pin down — writer/director Jake Paltrow’s latest film, “Young Ones,” which premiered this week at the Sundance Film Festival (read our review here), is worth an examination.

    Sundance Review: 'Young Ones' Doesn't Quite Become the Timeless Futuristic Western It Strives To Be

    What Jake Paltrow's futuristic western may have in subtle stylistic touches, it lacks in finding a real and sustainable emotional core.

    Sundance Review: ‘Young Ones’ Starring Michael Shannon, Nicholas Hoult, Elle Fanning & More

    In the not so distant future, a catastrophic drought has ravaged the United States turning it into an arid dystopian wasteland.

    Recap: ‘Boardwalk Empire’ Season 4 Finale “Farewell Daddy Blues”

    “After today I’m not making plans,” Atlantic City kingpin Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) says on the phone. If only he really knew how true that might be.

    Recap: 'Boardwalk Empire' Season 4, Episode 9 ‘Marriage and Hunting’

    In the blink of an eye, fortunes change. One week you’re up, the next week you’re down. It’s strange to see a seemingly unassailable man like Arnold Rothstein (Michael Stuhlbarg) down on his luck, but that’s exactly where we find the Manhattan gangster in this episode.

    Recap: 'Boardwalk Empire' Season 4, Episode 5 'Erlkonig'

    "Boardwalk Empire" either canters or gallops, there's usually no in between trot, but we suppose we should accept it and be happy that things are moving forward at a nice gait (though pacing would be nice). The fifth episode of the fourth season, the German word "Erlkönig"—named after a thematic poe...

    Michael Shannon Moves Into '99 Homes'; Nicole Kidman & Colin Firth Hug 'Paddington' & More

    While Ramin Bahrani's leap to the slightly-bigger-time earlier this year with "At Any Price" didn't quite work, we still admired the hell out of the movie. Putting the plot aside, which is perhaps too overstuffed for its own good, with some genre elements that don't quite work, Bahrani's study of mi...

    Interview: 'Afternoon Delight' Star Kathryn Hahn Talks Motherhood, Unhinged Silver Lake Book Clubs & Peter Bogdanovich's 'Squirrel To The Nuts'

    Even though her scenes in “Step Brothers,” “Anchorman,” and most recently “We're The Millers” rank among those films' finest and funniest moments, actress Kathryn Hahn had, until recently, never landed a proper starring vehicle to showcase her considerable chops. The occasion took another talented p...

    15 New Images From 'Boardwalk Empire' Season 4

    Breaking what? While the fate of Walter White is on everyone's mind as his journey kicks off in just over a week (take the phone off the hook folks!), a whole other breed of morally conflicted man is returning to the small screen too. In September, Nucky Thompson and the rest of the gang continue bo...
