Today on indieWIRE "Caterpillar" topped a weak Critical Consensus, Jodie Foster dished on working with Mel Gibson in "The Beaver," Hot Docs got off to a great start and more.

"Caterpillar" Tops "Beaver"

In a weak week for criticWIRE, Koji Wakamatsu’s Japanese drama "Caterpillar" narrowly topped Jodie Foster's PR nightmare of a film, "The Beaver." But none can hold a candle to "Passion Play," which boasts the distinction of being one of the worst received films in criticWIRE's three year history, with a D+ from 12 critics.

The Rise of Latin American Film

In conjunction with the kickoff to the 10th Cinema Tropical at MoMA today, indieWIRE looked back at how New York became the capital of Latin American film in the past decade.

Hot Docs

indieWIRE's Basil Tsiokos is in Toronto catching the documentaries in the 18th annual Hot Docs lineup. Click here to see his top 8 picks.

Among the many Canadian docs making their debuts at Hot Docs this week is “The National Parks Project.” With an assembly of 13 filmmakers and 39 musicians, project creators Joel McConvey, Geoff Morrison and Ryan J. Noth put together something distinctively epic. The film previewed parts of the collection in Berlin and SXSW, but is debuting its full canvas at Hot Docs.

Apichatpong Weerasethakul Comes to New York for a Monthlong Residency in May at the New Museum

In conjunction with his first-ever New York museum exhibition, “Apichatpong Weerasethakul: Primitive,” the New Museum has invited Weerasethakul to remain in town for a monthlong residency. Throughout the month of May, Weerasethakul will participate in a series of public conversations and screenings.

Cannes Adds Another

The Cannes Film Festival has added Michel Hazanavicius’s “The Artist” to its official competition, bringing the fest’s main slate to 20 films. “OSS 117” director Hazanavicius’s latest film - a French production but in the English language - stars John Goodman, Missi Pyle and James Cromwell.

Warner Bros. Buys Flixter

"Marking another major studio move into the digital entertainment space, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group has acquired movie discovery and recommendation site Flixster, which owns film review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes," reported Thompson on Hollywood. "Warners insists—repeatedly, given that a studio is owning a review site—that the company will continue to operate independently, and will serve as a “consumer-facing platform for Warner Bros. initiatives to drive digital content ownership.”"

Trailer for "Martha Marcy May Marlene" Hits

The Playlist posted the new trailer for the Sundance breakout "Martha Marcy May Marlene," which may very well make a star out of the other Olsen sister, Elizabeth Olsen.
