    Unraveling Inception: Zimmer's Piaf Riff, Clothing Clues, Nolan's Anxiety

    One of the great pastimes of summer 2010 is unravelling, explaining and debating Inception. Which is the main reason it is such a big hit: repeat business. (The movie's so good that the Chinese government is allowing it to play there, a rare honor for a Hollywood picture.) Here are some recent popul...

    "Dinner for Schmucks" vs. "The Dinner Game." Is the Remake Better?

    After reading Leonard Maltin's review of "Dinner for Schmucks," in which he wonders if viewers unfamiliar with the work of Francis Veber and French farce in general will like the new comedy more, I feel the need to come forward as someone who IS familiar with both and who slightly prefers this version to the original.

Terence Davies ("The House of Mirth") will write and direct this version, which will ...
