    "Don't Be A Menace" Etc Etc Etc... Coming to Blu-Ray For Some Reason...

    I am a full blown, hard core blu-ray convert, and there are SO many films I'm still waiting for to come out on blu-ray, like Michael Mann's Thief, Lawrence of Arabia, William Friedkin's terribly underrated Sorcerer , and there's that blu-ray of Spike Lee's Malcolm X that was supposed to come out in ...

    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

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...
