    Inception's Cotillard vs. Page, Wahlberg's The Fighter, Schreiber Faces Sexual Tension with Jolie

    During Nicole Kidman talk with Marion Cotillard in the August Interview, Inception star Cotillard admits that “It’s a paradox to be an actress." Why a "paradox?" Well, it's in "living in the city, taking planes all the time, trying to find the right balance in this life, which is not so eco-friendly, and still try to respect the environment.” She was recently on a Greenpeace trip to the Congo, where she connected with the locals who live within the corruption of the timber industry - their "their hopes and despair and struggles" - and reveals she's been wanting to do a documentary about their forest. While she used to feel like an outsider (...

    See It: "Inception" Standout Tom Hardy in "Bronson"

    Even some of the harshest critics of "Inception" seem to have enjoyed Tom Hardy in the role of Eames, a master of disguise in the dream world and a bit of comic relief on screen. Yeah, he's pretty good in that, but wait 'til you get a load of him in Nicolas Winding Refn's "Bronson," a critical darli...

    On DVD: "A Town Called Panic"

    With so many great animated films released in 2009, one of the best was lost in the shuffle, especially when it came to the Academy Awards. I have to confess that I didn't see all of those films nominated for the Animated Feature Oscar, so I can't rightly claim that the French-language stop-motion animation "A Town Called Panic" (aka "Panique au village") deserved to be in there over any one of them. And of those I have seen, it's actually very difficult to compare them to this. But with the category opened up to five titles last year, I really had hoped this little Belgian movie would easily slip in as other foreign works had when there were...

    The Whispering Wind: Matt Zoller Seitz on "The New World

    As Terrence Malick’s The New World eases into its climactic movement, its heroine Pocahontas enters the latest (but not last) phase of her journey. Once a Powhatan princess, she became the lover of convict-turned-explorer John Smith; then a diplomat taking pity on Smith’s stubborn, hapless countrymen; then a pariah cast out by her father as a betrayer; then a slowly assimilating Englishwoman and grieving (presumed) widow, deceived into thinking Smith dead; then a ward—and later, lover—of a kind Englishman, John Rolfe; the toast of Rolfe’s mother country; then a contented wife living in a high-ceilinged manor in which she welcomes Smith as her...
