    film review: The Fighter

    The Fighter doesn’t just take place in Lowell, Massachusetts; it reeks with the atmosphere of this working-class New England town, making vivid use of its look, feel, and sounds. Director David O. Russell clearly immersed himself in the community and worked overtime to capture its flavor, going so f...

    film review: The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of The Dawn Treader

    After a great start with the adaptation of C.S. Lewis’ The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe and a somewhat less enthralling (and war-laden) follow-up, Prince Caspian, the big-screen version of The Chronicles of Narnia rebounds with The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

    Mike Leigh Eyes Potential Film About 19th Century British Painter J.M.W. Turner

    No one mines the loves, lives, happiness and sorrow of the British working class better than Mike Leigh, and for the past two decades, he's pretty much made the subject the primary focus of his work. This year, he delivered another spiked heart of a film with "Another Year," tracking the relationshi...

    Back And To The Left: 'Thor' Poster Looks Familiar On A Number Of Levels

    Poster design is a difficult art. With only one picture, you've got to get across the tone, and at least some of the plot, of the film, highlight your star or stars, and provide an iconic image that people will immediately associate with your film. The difficulty of getting it right on all counts is...

    Will Anne Hathaway Play 'Barbarella' And Work With David O. Russell? Maybe...

    David O. Russell Confirms Hathaway's Early Talks In 'Silver Linings,' But Nothing Is Set In Stone YetAnne Hathaway has had a pretty good year, all in all. Considering that her last two films before then were the virtually unseen thriller "Passengers" and the rightfully reviled "Bride Wars," memories of her Oscar-nominated turn in "Rachel Getting Married" and her lead in the comedy megahit "The Devil Wears Prada" were beginning to fade. But she's started off the year by being more or less the best thing in the otherwise awful (but, importantly, commercially successful) "Valentine's Day," appeared in the billion-dollar "Alice in Wonderland," an...

    First Look At 'Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides'

    OK, so Johnny Depp's spy movie thing "The Tourist" is kind of a disaster, but he'll still be able to sleep tonight on the bed of money he's making from the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise. With the fourth installment hitting next spring and another two reportedly in the works, he would never ha...

    Harris Joins IndieWIRE as Editor-in-Chief, Starts January 1

    I am pleased to introduce indieWIRE's second editor-in-chief, Dana Harris. We worked side by side at Variety for two years when she was editor of Variety.com. Before that I had followed her journalism career as a respected staff reporter at Variety and The Hollywood Reporter. Harris first earned her indie bonafides as managing editor of the Independent Film and Video Monthly. The reason Harris landed this sought-after position? Of all the impressive folks who went after it, Harris was the only one to fulfil all three of the essential skill sets necessary to step into the big shoes left by departing founder Eugene Hernandez (now digital direct...
