    Sony Pictures Classics Pick Up Woody Allen's 'Nero Fiddled,' Plan Summer 2012 Release

    Despite being, in our eyes at least, not noticeably better in quality than recent fare like "Vicky Christina Barcelona" or "You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger," the amiable "Midnight in Paris" became Woody Allen's most successful film in decades this year -- it'...

    While the fall festival and awards season is generally a time for movie lovers and critics to put on their serious faces and watch a bunch of arty films and dour dramas, sometimes you just want the thrill of a well-honed action movie to take the edge off.

    In Praise Of Woody Allen: A Personal Ode.

    Like many Americans reared on eighties pop culture, I first discovered the potential of cinema by way of Steven Spielberg. The escapism of "Raiders of the Lost Ark," derivative as it may have been to viewers more readily familiar with the matinee serials that inspired it, brought an exotic...

    Never Seen A David Cronenberg Movie? Start With "A Dangerous Method" And Work Backward

    David Cronenberg's movies are known for oozing subtext beneath layers of freaky genre excess, digging into the mysterious crevices of human behavior. His latest movie looks downright tame by comparison. But the secret appeal of "A Dangerous Method," a keen look at the relationship betw...

    Jeff Nichols Talks About His Trust In Sony Pictures Classics & 'Take Shelter''s Memorable Ending

    And More From The Cast & Filmmaker Of The Apocalyptic DramaLady luck is currently showing Arkansas filmmaker Jeff Nichols her pearly whites. Though his strong debut feature "Shotgun Stories" took years to complete and be unleashed into the world, his sophomore effort "Take Shelter" was picked up by Sony Pictures Classics before they even saw a cut. In addition to that, its two principal players, Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain, are having a banner year and are quickly rising to household name-status. To top it all off, the filmmaker is already lensing his next feature, "Mud," in addition to writing yet another movie. Needless to say, Nic...

    Review: Gus Van Sant's 'Restless' A Sappy Misfire From A Director Capable Of So Much More

    Gus Van Sant has long been fascinated by young people – the way they interact with each other, the way they move, the way they emote, and, most importantly, the way they die (or at the very least face their mortality head-on – you could even lump his interesting, if aimless, "Psycho" remake in there).
