    For Your Consideration: Sifting Through An Incredibly Crowded Best Actor Oscar Race (Even With Steve Carell Out of the Picture)

    Last week this column took a look at the quickly tightening best actress race (in the wake of two drop outs via Nicole Kidman and Marion Cotillard), so it seemed appropriate to turn the table over to their male counterparts, especially since one of the main contenders in that arena also headed to 20...

    New York Film Festival Preview, 'Afternoon of a Faun: Tanaquil Le Clercq'

    "The tragedy of Tanny is epic," Jacques d'Amboise says of his one-time ballet partner, referring to the event that makes Nancy Buirski's eloquent documentary Afternoon of a Faun: Tanaquil Le Clercq, a moving human drama rather than simply a film about a great dancer.
