    Everyone in Their 30s Must See This Film

    Can Joaquin Phoenix's Career Be Saved? Watch Letterman Tonight!

    Suddenly, after two years of retirement, we are seeing photos of a clean shaven, slim, Joaquin Phoenix amid reports of movie deals in the offing.

    I’m partial to Woody Allen, but that doesn’t mean I’m a pushover. I have some quibbles with his latest film, You Will Meet a Dark Stranger, but I had a good time watching it, and that’s what really matters.
