    Kristen Stewart Did 'On The Road' For The Price Of A Beatles Song On 'Mad Men' & More About The Walter Salles Adaptation

    The long, difficult journey from page to screen for Jack Kerouac's "On The Road" has been well-documented over the years, and one thing that has been consistent throughout is the passion and love evinced for the novel by all involved --particularly the godfather of it all, Francis Ford Coppola, who ...

    It's been a long journey to get "On The Road" to the screen. The beatnik classic by Jack Kerouac was never going to be an easy translation, but Francis Ford Coppola initially bought the rights over thirty years ago, and worked on the project for decades before eventually handing over t...

    Review: '13' Remake Proves To Be One Unlucky Number (To Put It Mildly)

    It’s unfortunate, but there’s a Movie Content Hierarchy. Great filmmakers don’t pretend this exists -- Darren Aronofsky makes a horror movie and genre-hating critics love it, and former Fangoria mainstay David Cronenberg maintains his integrity and themes of perversion and body modification while becoming a boutique festival filmmaker.

    '13' Finally Sees The Light Of Day, Picked Up For Distribution By Anchor Bay

    "13 Tzameti," 2006's Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner, is a clipped, tight and exciting piece of genre filmmaking.

The film is stark, black and white, and French, a minor minimalist masterpiece that lingers in your head for days afterwards. If we told you Babluani remade his own film in color with American money and huge Hollywood stars, would you not believe that it was probably terrible? And would that pessimism be highlighted b...

    Brighton Rock—movie review

    Sometimes one can admire a film without truly liking it; that’s how I feel about the ambitious British remake of Brighton Rock. Graham Greene’s 1938 novel, first filmed in the late 1940s, has been cleverly reworked to take place in 1964, at the time of the “mods and rockers...
