    The Essentials: Robert Redford

    This Friday, one of the most powerful films of Robert Redford's career comes to the big screen in "All Is Lost" (our review).

    Review: J.C. Chandor Puts Robert Redford Through Watery Hell In Bruising, Formally Rigorous 'All Is Lost'

    It almost feels like J.C. Chandor is showing off.

From the ...

    At NYFF Tribute, Ralph Fiennes Discusses Importance of Directors, Imagination

    Where last week's New York Film Festival gala tribute to Cate Blanchett focused entirely on the actress in question, tonight's event--purportedly a similar fête for Ralph Fiennes--went the kill-two-birds approach. First, there was the expected Q&A, which was truncated more quickly than last week's ...

    For Your Consideration: Sifting Through An Incredibly Crowded Best Actor Oscar Race (Even With Steve Carell Out of the Picture)

    Last week this column took a look at the quickly tightening best actress race (in the wake of two drop outs via Nicole Kidman and Marion Cotillard), so it seemed appropriate to turn the table over to their male counterparts, especially since one of the main contenders in that arena also headed to 20...
