    Telluride Forges Bonds, Affleck's 'Argo' Hits, Burns and Loyola Marymount Launch Doc Grad Program

    Telluride is a place where people get to know each other. Without Telluride, I would not have dug into the Sight & Sound Top 50 with Alexander Payne (at the annual opening day Patron's Brunch), who agrees with me that "Citizen Kane" should be number one, not "Vertigo," and that Akira Kurosawa is the...

    Surprise: Telluride Unveils Quick Sneak Peek Of James Gray's 'The Nightingale' Starring Marion Cotillard & Joaquin Phoenix

    Disappointment with too few showstoppers has been a common complaint at the Telluride Film Festival this weekend (mostly by privileged film critics and Oscar bloggers wanting more sizzle). Each year, Telluride sneaks a few surprise films not listed on the official line-up and generally of marquee va...

    Soundtrack For 'Arbitrage' Includes Score By Cliff Martinez, Songs By Bjork, Billie Holiday & More

    If it's one thing we love, it's a great Richard Gere performance. After mistakenly labeling 2002 "The Year of Gere" (due to three fine performances in "The Mothman Prophecies," "Unfaithful," and "Chicago"), it looks like this year might actually live up to our really stupid title. Gere stars in "Arb...

    As the fall movie season approaches, with the big film festivals bleeding into the Oscar crush and blockbuster Christmas season, we'll be seeing the marketing machine at various studios start to churn into overdrive, most likely coughing sooty smoke and belching flames.

    Part 2 Of 'The Hobbit' Entitled 'The Desolation of Smaug,' Part 3 Dated For July 18th, 2014

    One problem with turning your two-part fantasy epic into a three-part fantasy epic is that you need to find a new title from somewhere. It's alright when a "Twilight" or a "Hunger Games" decide to split their final installment into two, because they can always go for a "Breaking Dawn Pt. 1 and 2" or...

    In Theaters: 'Little Birds' Are Saying 'For A Good Time, Call' 'Lawless' And 'The Ambassador'

    Labor Day Weekend: the last hurrah of summer and white clothing. As you bask in the relief of the mini vacation it offers, sipping your final mint julep of the season, look back on a time when that cold cocktail would have been spiked with moonshine or, worse, virgin.
