    Eric's Idol: Ken Loach's "Looking for Eric"

    Eric Cantona, “The King” and “the man who made football art,” the French-born hunk who led Manchester United to four league titles, is not a household name in the States. He’s no David Beckham or even Zinedine Zidane, but trust Ken Loach’s Looking for Eric that he's a big deal. In the film, Eric Bishop (Steve Evets), is seeing him—not romantically, or even corporeally, but whenever the troubled postal worker smokes a bit of his stepson's pot, the spirit of the very much alive Cantona appears, counseling him on his life crises like the White House portraits speaking to Nixon. But Looking for Eric is not another Harvey or Drop Dead Fred, becaus...

    Cannes Film Festival Review: "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps"

    The ride is as bumpy as the stock market is these days in "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps." A 23-years-on sequel to the still-entertaining original in which Michael Douglas created his signature role of Gordon Gekko, the new film initially takes good and opportunistic advantage of contemporary financial woes to detail the malfeascence of bankers and traders. But the script feels like a pasted-together hodgepodge of elements that co-exist without credibly blending together, topped by a climax that feels particularly hokey in its effort to leave audiences comfortable rather than disturbed by what they've just seen. It's surprising for Oliver S...
