    Known Unknowns: "The Tree of Life" Week Begins

    Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life has won the Palme d'or, and the timing couldn't be better. This maddening, exquisite work has already haunted more than a few of us at Reverse Shot. We thought the best way to wrestle with this film—whose spiritual density is tempered by its ethereal construction a...

    Review: 'Too Big To Fail' A Solid, Brisk & Entertaining Run Through The 2008 Bailout

    "Motherfucker." That is the first word of dialogue uttered in "Too Big To Fail" and it sums up the feeling for many who in the fall of 2008 watched closely as the United States came precariously close to suffering a major economic collapse unlike anything seen since the Great Depression. It was a sharp wake up call for the nation and the subject has already spawned a handful of films, notably Michael Moore's rushed and reactionary "Capitalism: A Love Story" and the much better Oscar-winning documentary "Inside Job." At Sundance earlier this year, "Margin Call" premiered, going inside a fictional financial institution for twenty-four hours as ...

    Palme d'Or Winner 'The Tree Of Life' Goes Wide July 8th; Full Rollout Release Dates Revealed

    We have to admit, when it was announced yesterday that Terrence Malick's "The Tree Of Life" walked away from Cannes with the Palme d'Or we were a bit surprised. The long-awaited film got a mixed reception on the Croisette and we expected a unanimous crowdpleaser like "The Artist" or "Le Havre" to walk away with the honor instead. But undoubtedly, nothing else at Cannes this year matched the ambition or scale of "The Tree Of Life" so on that basis alone the award fits. In any case, Fox Searchlight are definitely pleased as punch to be on able to add Cannes to their marketing campaign and it puts a fresh eye on the film in advance of the platfo...

    TV Review: The Scary Financial Drama "Too Big To Fail"

    At one point in the sober and sobering HBO film about the 2008 financial crisis, with Paul Giamatti as stony-faced, mumbling head of the Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke, I had a sudden flash of a David Letterman stunt. For a few weeks his running joke was to say ”Ben Bernanke,” and have several young ...

    Martin Freeman Reveals That 'Sherlock' Co-Star Benedict Cumberbatch Will Join Him In 'The Hobbit'

    One of the many, many early difficulties facing Peter Jackson's two-part prequel to his "Lord of the Rings" series, "The Hobbit," was that "The Office" star Martin Freeman, the director's first choice for the lead role of Bilbo Baggins, was committed to shoot a second series of the BBC's hit Arthur Conan Doyle reboot "Sherlock" this summer. If you haven't seen the show, from "Doctor Who" head honcho, and "The Adventures of Tintin" scribe, Steven Moffat, and former "League of Gentleman" member Mark Gatiss, it's pretty ace: there was one duff episode in the first three, but the other two were smart, funny, genuinely thrilling and an entirely su...

    First Reactions To 'X-Men: First Class' Suggest It's The Summer Home-Run We've Been Waiting For

    Since the start of the year, we haven't been shy about our opinion that "X-Men: First Class" seemed to be the most promising of the four superhero entries landing this summer.

    Preview: Goodbye Cuddy in House Finale

    What we know off-screen always shapes how we watch, and tonight's season finale of House is sure to resonate in a different way because we know that Lisa Edelstein hasn't renewed her contract for next season and won't be returning as Cuddy. I can't say I'm sorry.
