    "Kids" More Than All Right: Cholodenko Shines At Sundance

    Introducing the world premiere of Lisa Cholodenko's "The Kids are All Right," Sundance's John Cooper joked that if anything bad were to happen during the screening, "there would go the independent film industry." His reference came from the fact that reps from essentially every distributor were in attendance, anticipating the last minute entry to the fest and one of its hottest acquisition titles. Cholodenko admitted she had raced to get it finished in time, but there was absolutely no evidence of hastiness on screen. The audience laughed, even cheered (at a soon-to-be-classic scene in which "Kids" co-stars Annette Bening and Mark Ruffalo s...

    Hetherington and Junger Talk Afghan War Doc Restrepo

    Restrepo doesn't resemble your standard documentary, in any way. It's not like other embedded war docs, or voice-over narration films, or movies with a strong personality or clear narrative spine. It's another animal. UPDATE: The movie is one of the final five Oscar nominees for best documentary, wi...

    Queers, Tears and Cheers: Prop 8 Doc Rallies Sundance Audience

    REVIEW | Almost a Masterpiece: "Four Lions" an Explosive Comedy

    In the opening scene of "Four Lions," a group of British would-be terrorists attempt in vain to make the ideal suicide tape. It's not the first time that such risqué bloopers have been depicted in narrative form - both "Paradise Now" and the short-lived Showtime series "Sleeper Cell" contained similar moments - but it's certainly the funniest.

The characters are no laughing matter; instead, their bumbling tendencies suggest a universal...
