    Sundance Review: Keira Knightley and Sam Rockwell Charm in Lynn Shelton's 'Laggies'

    "Laggies," marks the first time Lynn Shelton has directed a film whose script she didn't personally pen. Although the story by Andrea Seigel is more tightly constructed (and much more neatly wrapped up) than Shelton's own improvised scripts, the story of arrested development in extremis fits neatly...

    Sundance Review: Lynn Shelton’s 'Laggies' Starring Keira Knightley, Chloe Moretz & Sam Rockwell

    Given that the arrested development subgenre of comedy is chiefly the domain of men and man children, it’s nice to see the field finally tackled from a refreshing female perspective.

    First Look: Sam Rockwell & Olivia Wilde In 'Better Living Through Chemistry'

    Review: Insipid, Painful Rom-Com 'A Case Of You' Starring Evan Rachel Wood & Justin Long

    It was only a matter of time before someone tried to fully exploit the social media age for the evils of the generic romantic comedy and "A Case Of You," a new Justin Long-led rom-com, does just that; abusing the Facebook platform to create the first FB stalker comedy.

    Sam Rockwell On Going Dark for 'A Single Shot,' His Take on VOD and Where He Stands on Gun Legislation

    It's been a kudo-worthy season for Sam Rockwell, who emerged as the motor-mouthed, big-hearted highlight of July's shore-town dramedy "The Way, Way Back," and now ends the summer with a bang in David M.

    Reviews: 'A Single Shot' Starring Sam Rockwell, William H. Macy, Jeffrey Wright & Jason Isaacs

    The main narrative surrounding the evolution of David M. Rosenthal’s “A Single Shot” has been about the longer-than-usual casting merry-go-round -- since 2009, a roster of talent as long as your arm has signed up then signed out of the film. However the fear that, as the accepted wisdom goes, there ...

    Interview: 'A Single Shot' Star Sam Rockwell Talks His Favorite Genre Films, Marvel Movies, Duncan Jones' 'Mute' & More

No matter what he's in – if it's big budget nonsense like "Charlie's Angels" or something like Duncan Jones' moody, micro-budget "Moon" – Rockwell...

    Review: Sam Rockwell Returns to His Dark Side With Haunting Backwoods Noir 'A Single Shot'

    Even before John Moon, the lonely woodsman played by Sam Rockwell at the center of David M. Rosenthal's "A Single Shot," accidentally shoots a young woman while hunting the desolate area near his trailer, his world has fallen apart. Rosenthal's adaptation of Matthew F. Jones' 1996 novel features a f...
