    In 1975, a soul-searching young Australian woman named Robyn Davidson set out to travel solo from Alice Springs across the vast, empty desert to reach the Indian Ocean some 2,000 miles away. Aided only by a trio of camels and her dog, Davidson eventually completed the voyage and wrote a popular Nati...

    Telluride Film Festival Review: Ralph Fiennes Directs Himself As Charles Dickens In 'The Invisible Woman,' But It's Felicity Jones Who Shines

    Ralph Fiennes' quasi-modern adaptation of "Coriolanus," which marked the actor's directorial debut, was a sharply experimental take on the source material. For his second effort behind the camera, "The Invisible Woman," the director has taken a more classical approach. Adapting Claire Tomalin's book...

    Telluride Film Festival Review: 'Salinger' Provides An Enthralling Account of J.D. Salinger's Reclusive Life and Teases the Posthumous Publication of New Work

    The early-in-life successes and later reclusiveness that defines the legacy of "Catcher in the Rye" author J.D. Salinger provides as fertile ground for a movie treatment as the novelist's work itself. So it's no surprise that "Salinger," director Shane Salerno's comprehensive overview of the writer'...

    Telluride Film Festival Review: Is Alfonso Cuarón's 'Gravity' A New Kind of Cinema?

    There's an implicit irony to the title of "Gravity," director Alfonso Cuarón's lost-in-space odyssey, because gravity rarely enters into the equation. Almost entirely shot in a stunningly realistic but entirely digital representation of space, the movie might be the most spectacular two-hander of al...

    Telluride Film Festival Review: 'Starred Up' Is a Moving Father-Son Drama Masquerading as a Brutal Prison Exposé

    Prison dramas tend to invite the expectations of intense, dangerous scenarios filled with violent confrontations and vulgar spats. British director David Mackenzie's gradually affecting "Starred Up" has all those ingredients but uses them for more precise means that merely revealing the harsh nature...

    Telluride Film Festival Review: Steve McQueen's '12 Years a Slave,' Anchored By Brilliant Chiwetel Ejiofor, Is a Slavery Movie For the Ages

    Like countless movies before it, "12 Years a Slave" opens with a title card announcing that its material is based on a true story. However, Steve McQueen's startlingly realized period drama justifies its introductory note with each ensuing scene, recreating the experiences of a free black man kidnap...

    Michel Faber's 2000 science fiction novel "Under the Skin" follows an alien tasked with kidnapping earthlings and selling their bodies for consumption back home. Adapting the material into his first feature since 2004's "Birth," music video director Jonathan Glazer only borrows half that premise, fo...
