    It Only Happens Once a Lifetime

    Or never, in some folks unlucky cases. Or twice, if you were, say, born yesterday and live to be over 100 years and 1 day old. But by then no one will even realize the pop cultural significance of this day. Because today is:

    Venice '10 | A Mixed Launch But a Terrific "Swan"

    Every film festival, like every orchestra, has a characteristic uniquely its own, a particular tone, running faintly but unmistakably beneath its noise and clamor. Berlin's watchword is efficiency. Cannes runs on glamour. Rotterdam promotes (I think falsely) the sense of moral improvement that is th...

    Review: "The American"

    Cool, understated, stripped to essentials, “The American” centers upon the sort of American anti-hero -- the laconic cowboy, the perennial outcast, the reform-minded gangster making one final heist, the bad man seeking redemption -- who used to appear regularly onscreen but has been pushed aside of late by action heroes and comic vulgarians. Although the themes stressed in Rowan Joffe's adaptation of the late Martin Booth's 1990 novel “A Very Private Gentleman” are conventional -- escape from one's past, the fresh start made possible by the right woman -- director Anton Corbijn's comparatively astringent approach invests them with a refreshin...

    Review: "Black Swan"

    Resembling a “Red Shoes” on acid, “Black Swan” takes the idea of giving one's all for art to a morbid extreme. Applying the gritty handheld technique he successfully employed in the working class environs of “The Wrestler” to the rarefied domain of classical ballet, Darren Aronofsky swooningly explo...
