    Margin Call—movie review

    Margin Call manages to put a human face on the current economic crisis—but I wish it was as good as its trailer, which is forceful, well-edited, and dramatically scored. The film itself has many good qualities, and an exceedingly strong cast, but it’s a bit dry.

    I walked into Oranges and Sunshine (written by Rona Munro and directed by Jim Loach) not knowing much about the story except thinking how glad I was to see Emily Watson back on screen in a starring role. I walked out incredibly moved and shocked by this true story.

    Carey Mulligan Joins Coens' 'Inside Llewyn Davis' & Spike Jonze's New Film Starring Joaquin Phoenix

    It's hard to believe that just two years ago the world was waking up to Carey Mulligan. The actress seemed to come out of nowhere with her turn in Lone Scherfig's "An Education," and rather than try and go for big paydays in tentpole or franchise movies, Mulligan has wisely opted to work with filmmakers instead.

And Mulligan isn't stopping there, as Variety report, she's addin...

    Guest Post: Bayaka Women in OKA! by Lavinia Currier

    Shooting the feature OKA! in the Central African Republic with the Bayaka pygmies of the forest was about as far from Hollywood as one can imagine, our ‘sets’ were forest camps of huts built by the Bayaka women and our art department.
