    Arthouse Audit: 'Her' and 'The Past' Not Eye-Popping, Face Serious Competition

    Two significant limited holiday entries opened this pre-holiday weekend, often a tricky time to attract specialized audiences.

    Spike Jonze Says His Old, Unproduced Beastie Boys Film 'We Can Do It' Would Have Been "Surreal" & "Ridiculous"

    It's not the most well-traveled piece of "what could have been" pop culture lore, but in the mid 1990s, soon after their collective success with the now iconic and indelible "Sabotage" video, filmmaker Spike Jonze and the seminal hip-hop trio Beastie Boys, headed to Los Angeles to write a movie.

    BEST FILMS OF 2013

    I am absolutely certain about the top three films on this list. But the further down we go, the more absurd it seems to rank films as different as the Coen Brothers' wonderfully layered look at a struggling folk singer in the 60's and Martin Scorsese's bacchanalia of 80's excess.

    Spike Jonze Talks About Working With Scarlett Johansson On 'Her,' Arcade Fire & Intellect Vs. Intuition

    While you’ve probably heard it described in simple ways, Spike Jonze’s “Her” is much, much more than the iPhone movie about falling love with Siri.

    Review: Spike Jonze's Funny & Insightful 'Her' Starring Joaquin Phoenix, Rooney Mara, Amy Adams & More

    Is social media anti-social? Has the information age divided us as much as it has been meant to unite? Is peer-to-peer simply an ironic term or are inter-personal, face-time relationships ripe for redefinition? While these are not the primary concerns of Spike Jonze’s lovely and perceptive relations...
