    film review: Eat Pray Love

    I don’t think one should have to read a novel in order to enjoy its screen adaptation, but if you have read a particular book, chances are you’re going to get more out of the film than someone who hasn’t. You’ll remember the experience you had as a reader and fill in some of the details the movie ha...

    Eat Pray Love

    Elizabeth Gilbert was miserable. She crashed out of her marriage, careened into another relationship way too quickly and was just overwhelmed and seriously fucked up. She needed a change -- not just a haircut or new clothes -- a fundamental change to everything she knew.

    Before There Was "Enter the Void" There Was "The Champ"?

    Normally I would wait for closer proximity to the film's release date to do a "Before There Was" posting, but this was just too weird to wait on. During a Q&A following the New York premiere of "Enter the Void" at Lincoln Center Wednesday night, filmmaker Gaspar Noé was asked by an audience member how he got such a great performance out of child actress Emily Alyn Lind (who you may have seen as the younger version of Dakota Fanning's character in "The Secret Life of Bees"), especially during one frighteningly traumatic scene.

Many people are having issue with the kid's opinion of the Christopher Nolan pic just because it's against their own. Others seem to find it inappropriate for a little boy to be a critic. I think he's no more annoying than most TV news-based movie reviewers, though it's a little creepy how mature and lively he is. This is beyond precociousness. I honestly...
