    Heroines of Cinema: 15 Female Directors Who Made Their First Feature After Turning 40

    Two weeks ago, this column profiled ten female directors aged 40 or younger. My reasons for imposing an age limit were clearly stated, but it had the unfortunate side effect of excluding an entire demographic from the conversation - one that has a sorry history of receiving such treatment in Hollywo...

    Air Scoring Norwegian Thriller 'Pioneer,' Mychael Danna Tuning Up 'Queen Of The Night' & Claire Denis' 'Bastards' Gets Soundtrack Release

    Mychael Danna, who has scored all of Canadian director Atom Egoyan's features for the last twenty years (including the as-yet-unreleased "Devil's Knot," starring Colin Firth and Reese Witherspoon), will, unsurprisingly, contribute music to Egoyan's new film, "Queen of the Night." The thriller, starr...

    Watch: Career-Spanning, 1 Hour 45 Minute Conversation With 'White Material' & '35 Shots Of Rum' Director Claire Denis

Lots of people saw it, mostly on dates, and it was nominated for some Oscars, and Johnny Depp was in it....

    Watch: French Trailer For Claire Denis' Disturbing Thriller 'The Bastards'

    Leaving the beautiful, long-take photography characteristic of her past celebrated films for crudely edited, cheap-looking digital video and jumping headlong into the revenge thriller drama, Claire Denis' "The Bastards" was eye opener when it hit Cannes last month in more ways than one. And it's bee...

    Watch: Cannes Clips Including 'Zulu' With Orlando Bloom & Forest Whitaker, Claire Denis' 'Bastards,' Jia Zhangke's 'A Touch of Sin' & More

    To the outsider, the Cannes Film Festival can be a nebulous thing. Even if you know the filmmaker or the cast, sometimes you need more context than a review to give you a sort of firmer grasp of the shape, texture and tone of a movie. Clips from the festival are landing left and right, so we thought...

    Cannes Review: Claire Denis Destined To Divide With Disturbing, Salacious 'The Bastards'

    If all art is only ever about sex and death, Claire Denis’ Un Certain Regard film “The Bastards” may be the most "artistic" one we’ve seen in Cannes to date, as it rolls around positively shamelessly in the musk of both. Or it may be a grubby little exercise in exploitation, depending on who you tal...

    Cannes: Suicide and Sexual Abuse Abound In Claire Denis' Frustratingly Muddled 'Bastards'

    Claire Denis' films are typically intimate dramas weighted with emotion, which makes it particularly dispiriting that "The Bastards," her eleventh feature, contains those ingredients without sufficiently pulling them together. A muddled revenge drama about family ties and traumatic experiences, the ...

    The Surprises & Notable Absences Of The 2013 Cannes Line-Up

    So the 2013 Cannes lineup has finally been unveiled and as usual, there were a fair few surprise inclusions, a fair few snubby exclusions/category decisions, and some mildly oh!-inducing title changes. The majority of our firm predictions made it in (the Coens, Soderbergh, Farhadi, Sorrentino, Gray,...

    'Only God Forgives,' 'Nebraska,' 'Inside Llewyn Davis,' 'The Past' & More Lead Official Selection For 2013 Cannes Film Festival

    As usual, sifting the actual fact from the speculation when it comes to the line-up of the 2013 Cannes Film Festival has been a little tricky. We know the opener -- Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby," the closer -- "Zulu," with Forest Whitaker and Orlando Bloom, and as of yesterday, the Un Certain Re...
