    cinemadaily | "Jeanne Dielman" Comes to Criterion

    "'Jeanne Dielman' belongs to the rare class of films capable of transforming the world around you, though it requires the kind of patience and dedication that can be hard to come by at home," writes the LA Times' Sam Adams in a piece on Chantal Akerman's 1975 landmark feminist film which gets an ove...

    Sao Paulo, Brazil, August 23, 2009 -- The scene: A middle-aged man steps into a row of a fading, empty movie theater.

    Sarajevo Standouts: Ordinary and Not So Ordinary People

    The Sarajevo Film Festival closed out its 15th anniversary edition last night honoring films recognizing both everyday and out-there subjects, with Serbian films doing especially well. Offering a realist view of both the drudgery and soul-killing aspects of war, Vladimir Perisic's carefully composed Serbian drama, "Ordinary People," charting the course of one day in the life of a young Serbian soldier, won the festival's "Heart of Sarajevo" awards for Best Film and for Best Actor for understated yet powerful lead Relja Popovic. In pointed contrast to that film's starkness, Yorgos Lanthimos' absurdist look at the lives of a family raised in de...

    Sex Sells Short Films Online...But Is That a Good Thing?

    In this era where most short films are seen online rather than in festivals, Justin Nowell is a short filmmaker with a unique perspective. Not only has he directed two shorts that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2008 ("Sick Sex") and 2009 ("Acting for the Camera"), his films were among the select few chosen to be part of the festival's online component each year.

    Five Strange, Dead Basterds Copy My Headless Dad's Mutha Complex: Your Weekend Options

    The penultimate weekend of the summer movie season brings a (in)glourious mixed bag of specialty cinema to choose from: There's the wide release of Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds" - which brings with it both Brad Pitt fighting some nazis, and The Weinstein Company's best shot at salvaging their tarnished financial record; Lucrecia Martel's "The Headless Woman" - which indieWIRE's Eric Hynes calls "both subtle and forceful"; Spike Lee's acclaimed "Passing Strange," which documents the gone-too-soon Broadway musical of the same name; Oliver Hirschbiegel's Liam Neeson starrer "Five Minutes of Heaven," which takes on the Irish politic...

    "I'm glad I'm not twenty-five anymore," Christoph Waltz told me Monday morning before the New York premiere of Quentin Tarantino's latest. The Austrian actor is a bit more than twice that age and exudes a level of comfort and confidence that he says is rooted in his maturity and experience. We were ...
