    Underrated At the Tribeca Film Festival : 'Almost Christmas'

    The new film from Phil Morrison (the director of Junebug) has not been embraced by most critics at the Tribeca Film Festival (actually, most of them hated it) but I so disagree. Almost Christmas is one of my favorites from this year's festival, a thoroughly fresh dark comedy - more sly and absurd ...

    Watch: First Trailer For David Gordon Green's 'Prince Avalanche' Starring Emile Hirsch & Paul Rudd

    While technically speaking, David Gordon Green's indie "Prince Avalanche" is a remake of the Icelandic film "Either Way," to box it into that category alone is to miss the point. Shot pretty much in secret last year, and unveiled to great acclaim at Sundance, the filmmaker's latest is yet another sh...

    Tribeca Review: ‘Almost Christmas’ Is A Mostly Joyless Misfire

    Director Phil Morrison hasn't made a film since his exceptional debut indie, "Junebug," which launched Amy Adams in 2005. Brimming with life, even without the Oscar-nominated and very-worthy firecracker Adams performance, the movie is flush with an idiosyncratic humanity and especially complex and u...

    Harrison Ford Says His Role In 'Anchorman 2' Would Be Easy To Cut, Paul Rudd Unveils Clip On 'Conan'

    Given the secrecy around "Anchorman 2" aka "Anchorman: The Legend Continues," you might think that Christopher Nolan was producing the movie. However, it's a bit surprising that The World's Hardest Interview, Harrison Ford, managed to open up about his role in the movie, in which he reportedly plays...

    Review: 'Admission' With Tina Fey & Paul Rudd A Low-Stakes Drama Mixed With Toothless Social Satire

    Some people don’t seem to realize that the type of stories being told in film needs to change. Small-scale tales of middlebrow intimacy and minor dramatic conflict used to have a home in the cinemas, where they would play to audiences who didn’t have a surplus of entertainment options. Today, the pr...

    Tina Fey Talks Her Post-'30 Rock' Career, 'Admission,' and Oscar Hosting

    A few weeks ago I went to see Tina Fey's latest movie "Admission" (March 22) on the same night that I watched the last episode of her seven-year NBC sitcom "30 Rock." Fey is a fascinating example of a pioneering woman who has become hugely successful while playing inside the box of what men can hand...

    Andy Samberg's Tasteful Indie Spirit Awards Monologue, 'Bad Lip Reading,' 'Beast It' and Skype Audition Sketches [Video]

    Andy Samberg got it right. The SNL alum hosted Saturday night's Independent Spirit Awards, the penultimate show before Sunday's Oscars, and he led the evening with perfectly goofy candor. Everyone played along and the audience reaction shots were actually a pleasure to watch -- a contrast to Sunday ...

    David Gordon Green Talks The Free-Spirited 'Prince Avalanche,' Working With Nicolas Cage & 'Suspiria'

    Filmmaker David Gordon Green has had a deeply eclectic career of omnivorous tastes thus far. To perhaps best demonstrate the polar extremes, the 37-year-old director (who has already made nine features) has had films produced by Terrence Malick ("Undertow") and Judd Apatow ("Pineapple Express"). His...
