    Lars von Trier: "I will never do a press conference again."

    After its much-praised prologue of mostly stills that prefigure the film’s narrative arc, Melancholia becomes a brilliant study of how the troubled, disintegrating state of mind of one character, Justine (a brilliant Kirsten Dunst), echoes the demise of the world as we know it. With his c...

    CANNES REVIEW | Pedro Almodóvar's "The Skin I Live In" Is a Messy Medical Thriller

    Based on Thierry Jonque's novel "Tarantula," Pedro Almodóvar's "The Skin I Live In" is a medical revenge thriller about genre identity. It's also a meandering, tonally confused work. Teaming with Antonio Banderas for the first time in two decades and working with genre elements he hasn't touched in ...
