    Toronto Review | Death, Marriage, & John Cameron Mitchell: Eckhart and Kidman Sustain "Rabbit Hole"

    The outlandish inventiveness of John Cameron Mitchell's previous films are barely discernible in "Rabbit Hole," a relatively tame but nonetheless admirable drama sustained by convincing performances and steady direction. Compared to "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" and "Shortbus," the aims of "Rabbit Hol...

    Aronofsky Talks the "Nightmare" of Getting 'Black Swan' Made

    Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan opened the Venice Film Festival and took the Lido by storm. I talked with the director about the long "nightmare" of getting the script right and financing the film, casting Natalie Portman and Vincent Cassel, shooting in a gritty up-close verite style, and how he set a...

    While “Score: A Hockey Musical,” landed the coveted opening night slot at TIFF this year, Richard J.

    In Praise of Carey Mulligan, Isobel Meikle-Small and the Young-to-Old Casting of "Never Let Me Go"

    Mark Romanek's film adaptation of "Never Let Me Go," which opens in limited release Wednesday, is ultimately a let down. It begins very well, develops into a strong combo of love story and existential sci-fi, but the climax feels horribly rushed. This shouldn't come as a surprise after screenwriter Alex Garland's disappointing third act for Danny Boyle's "Sunshine," which is otherwise a gorgeous, well-acted and psychologically and philosophically stimulating story involving the sun's dual capability for giving and ending life. "Never Let Me Go" actually is quite similar to that movie, in spite of its obvious setting differences, though the li...

    Video: Werner Herzog Saves Joaquin Phoenix

    Coinciding with today's DVD release of Werner Herzog's "My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done?" is an animated short titled "When Herzog Rescued Phoenix" depicting the time that the German filmmaker saved Joaquin Phoenix from an accident when the actor-turned-"I'm Still Here" subject flipped his car. The story is true, one of the many strange tales making up the legend of Herzog, and occurred back in January 2006. In fact, the short features audio narration by the filmmaker, presumably from an old interview. The visuals were done by Sascha Ciezata, who previously made "When Lynch Met Lucas," employing real audio of David Lynch talking about being...
