    Sundance Review: Lynn Shelton's 'Touchy Feely' Flirts With Greatness, But Proves Too Listless & Frustrating

    There's a strange and opaque energy coursing through the veins of Lynn Shelton's languid fifth feature-length effort, "Touchy Feely." It's a little mysterious, to the film’s moody credit, and it’s a little unavailable and removed, to its detriment. Lead actress Rosemarie DeWitt admitted, "I didn't r...

    First Look At Rosemarie DeWitt & Ellen Page In Lynn Shelton's Sundance Pic 'Touchy Feely'

    So here's the pitch: a massage therapist develops an aversion to bodily contact. Hilarity right? You might think that, as it's from Lynn Shelton, the writer/director behind "Humpday" and "Your Sister's Sister." But as the helmer tells EW, her latest "Touchy Feely...

    The Little Jolie-Pitts' Dad Is A Lethal Weapon In 'Killing Them Softly'

    If you need proof that casting is everything, Killing Them Softly delivers it. This noirish crime story about hired killers would be an entirely different, less enjoyable film without Brad Pitt as an expert hitman. I’d say he’s working against type, but really, isn’t his type ...

    New Pics Of Brad Pitt Doing Business In America In 'Killing Them Softly'

    In case you haven't been able to tell by the pretty excellent posters for "Killing Them Softly," the film is as much about America and the price of doing business as it is about the "plot" (such as it is) about a high stakes poker game that gets jacked by two hapless would be...
