    Watch the First 6 minutes of "Project Nim" and a Behind the Scenes Video on the Ape Effects

    Am I posting too much on "Project Nim"? Well, it is still my favorite film of the year, and since I reviewed it six months ago I've been dying for the time when I get to really recommend and discuss it. But it's hard to take anyone's word completely, and I've always loved when faithful distributors and marketers release a video of a film's first 5-10 minutes, as primary proof that it's going to suck you in. Clips are nice, but they're kind of spoilery and often provide little context. Here, courtesy of Yahoo! Movies, you get six minutes of intriguing introduction to Nim Chimpsky, Professor Herb Terrace, Stephanie LaFarge and her daughter, Jen...

Her works maintain a poignant paradox that so many films about young people cannot manage; the young heroine in the Breillat imaginary is naïve, yet wise, curious, yet stubborn, innocent, yet awakened. In the case of Th...

    "Attack The Block" vs. "Captain America" - Which One is Going To Be Better? (Here's A BIg Clue...)

    One of the main reasons why we're constantly talking about Attack The Block (which is opening in selected cities on July 29) is not only because it's an interesting film (well to me it is), but also because Sony/Screen Gems has been advance screening this film A LOT everywhere. I've lost count how m...
