    The Films Of Peter Weir: A Retrospective

    Lord knows, we Playlisters love a cinematic polymath: a director whose interests seem unconstrained by the strictures of any one particular genre and who instead leaps nimbly, if not always successfully, from sci-fi to epic to thriller to comedy -- think Steven Soderbergh, Michael Winterbottom or Ang Lee. Peter Weir is almost one of these -- his feature film resume boasts everything from mystery to horror to romcom to historical epic, but he falls just short of true all-rounder status because a glimpse at his back catalogue really suggests that while he has dallied with various genres, he’s more comfortable staying within shouting distance of...

Simply put, "Vampire" gives new meaning to the w...

    Meet the 2011 Sundance Filmmakers | "The Off Hours" Director Megan Griffiths

    In the languid world of the night shift at a highway diner in the Pacific Northwest, Francine’s small-town life consists of quickies in public restrooms and pouring coffee for truckers and townies. And the inertia isn’t limited to Francine; it extends to the diner owner, a short-order cook, a Serbia...

    Meet the 2011 Sundance Filmmakers | "The Guard" Director John Michael McDonagh

    Sergeant Gerry Boyle, a salty village cop in Ireland, has a subversive sense of humor, a caustic wit, and an uncanny knack for keeping people at arm’s length.

    Meet the 2011 Sundance Filmmakers | "Knuckle" Director Ian Palmer
