    Watch: Promising Trailer For Alt WW2 Drama 'Resistance' With Michael Sheen & Andrea Riseborough

    What if the Germans had won the war? It's a question that's plagued hacky science-fiction and historical novel writers since...well, the Germans didn't win the war, but that doesn't mean it can't be the source of compelling fiction. Philip K Dick's masterpiece "The Man In The High Castle" is a good ...

    movie review—Midnight In Paris

    I had a smile on my face from the moment Woody Allen’s latest film began, with an idyllic series of Parisian street scenes set to the music of jazz great Sidney Bechet…and the film maintained that lovely quality all the way to the finale. Allen may be a fatalist, as he often cla...

    Tribeca Review: Julia Roberts-Produced 'Jesus Henry Christ' Is Blasphemously Joyless

    There's a moment in "Jesus Henry Christ" when a character is said to be in poor health. When asked what happened to him, the answer is "The Bulls won the championship."

    David Torn & Simon Taufique Scoring 'Jesus Henry Christ' Starring Michael Sheen and Toni Collette

And perhaps slightly more interesting to us is the fact that the film is being scored by celebrated composer/guitar-texturalist David Torn (occasionally known as the recording artist Splattercell) and up-and-coming composer Simon ...
