    10 Things You Want To Know About Joan Rivers

    Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg's documentary "Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work" has been very well received here at Sundance. The film presents a sharp, funny and often quite touching portrait of Rivers, who at age 75, still struggles with both her insecurities and her ability to find steady work. Though as enthusiastic as the audience was for the film at a screening yesterday, Rivers upstaged herself at the Q&A afterwards. Following a standing ovation, she spent nearly 20 minutes responding to a slew of compliments and questions, putting the audience in hysterics a good two dozen times. The entire Q&A is available here, but indieWIRE has also...

    Small Screen | Scorsese, "Oceans," and Gay Pride Docs Look to Find a Home

    During its theatrical release, Leonard Maltin called Martin Scorsese's "Shutter Island" (criticWIRE rating: B), which heads to DVD and Blu-Ray today, a "major disappointment." He centers most of his critique on the film's twist, saying "I felt as if I’d been led through a labyrinthine shaggy-dog story only to arrive at a meaningless punchline." But not everyone agrees. Rob Nelson, who gave the film an A on criticWIRE, said on Moving Image Source, "'Shutter Island'—unlike Scorsese’s 'Cape Fear'—isn’t principally an exercise in cleverly telegraphed allusion or even in horror. Indeed, acting more Kubrickian than ever, the director (who also...

    Dispatch From Romania | A Cinema of Everyday Moments at the Transilvania International Film Festival

    Yesterday brought a close to the ninth edition of the Transilvania International Film Festival, hosted in the university town of Cluj, Romania. The event has been steadily growing both in size and importance over the past few years with organizers touting 2010 as a record breaking year. During its ten days, bookended by Fatih Akin's "Soul Kitchen" and Andrei Ujica's "The Autobiography of Nicolae Ceausescu," TIFF (as the event is more commonly referred to locally, not to be confused with the elder, esteemed September Canadian event) presented a remarkable 240 films from nearly 50 counties, and its warm staff welcomed nearly 500 Romanian and in...

That is, had the necessary ingredients of good directiion, script and a real tour de force for a lead been absent. Thankfully for "Winter's Bone," which a...
