    The Classic American Tragedy of Bennett Miller's "Capote"...And It's True

    In his austere, remarkably confident first dramatic feature, "Capote," Bennett Miller tackles the biopic from a fresh angle. Instead of tracing the standard soup-to-nuts arc, he and writer Dan Futterman zero in on the six year period Truman Capote devoted to researching "In Cold Blood," the pioneeri...

    On the Edge: Lodge Kerrigan Talks Collapse and Chance in "Keane"

    With his latest picture "Keane," Lodge Kerrigan reaffirms the maverick mantle he established over ten years ago with his 1994 debut "Clean, Shaven." As unnerving and concise as his celebrated bow, "Keane" is also a more full-bodied and emotionally harrowing expression of Kerrigan's talents. Starring British actor Damian Lewis (in a riveting performance) as the title character William Keane, the film stalks its protagonist -- as he reels from the abduction of his young daughter -- with the tightly observed, hand-held camerawork reminiscent of the Dardenne brothers ("Rosetta," "The Son"). A visceral exercise in post-9-11 anguish, a bravura use ...

    5 Questions for Jennie Livingston, Director of "Paris Is Burning" and "Who's The Top?"

    When I first saw "Paris Is Burning" in Los Angeles in 1991 it blew me away. Not counting Michael Moore's "Roger & Me," it was the first true documentary, in this case a portrait of a group of New Yorkers who were part of the ball scene, I had ever seen in a movie theater. After it came out on vi...

    Sighs and Whispers: Chatting with Phil Morrison about "Junebug"

    For filmgoers this is a week of embarrassing riches. Yet for Phil Morrison, such gifts could also be seen as a severe case of bad timing. Ever since I first saw "Junebug" back at the New Directors/New Films festival this last spring in New York, I wondered when this wondrous American original would be released. Unfortunately, pitted against the long-awaited latest works of Jim Jarmusch, Wong Kar-wai, and Werner Herzog hot on their heels, Morrison's film might get lost in the shuffle. Yet as reassuring as it is to fall back on the old standbys, here's an exciting new voice in an independent American cinema at a time when we really need it. Her...
