    NYFF '11 Review: 'Once Upon A Time In Anatolia' A Masterful, Slow-Burn Epic

    Minimalist art filmmaker Nuri Bilge Ceylan spent a long time crafting very personal and breathtakingly photographed tales. His work has never been big on plot, nor have they ever been anything other than glacially paced. Indeed, his general aesthetic isn't very welcoming to the impatient, though those willing to give their attention are always struck by something special. His black and white debut "The Town" is a real toughie, containing less of a story and more of a collection of moments -- but without the presence of a narrative, Ceylan is free to discover and exhibit universal beauty that isn't dependent on deep characters or drama. A "sce...

    NYFF '11 | "Paradise Lost 3" Directors Joe Berlinger & Bruce Sinofsky: "Shame on Arkansas."

    "Shame on Arkansas for not exonerating these guys. Or, even shame on Arkansas if they really think they're guilty for letting child killers out of jail. Or, shame on Arkansas for not going out and finding the person or persons who committed this crime."

    NYFF ’11 Review: ‘Paradise Lost 3’ Is Utterly Compelling, But Still Ethically Messy At Times

    Few movies have a conclusion as out-of-nowhere, compelling and yet strange as the one featured in "Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory." What makes this finale even more exceptional is the fact that the film is a documentary and that this unexpected coda wasn't dreamed up inside the head of an imaginative sc...

    NYFF '11 Review: '4:44: Last Day On Earth' Envisions The Apocalypse Without Much Imagination

    There's something very wrong in Abel Ferrara's "4:44: Last Day On Earth." The world, as the title would suggest, is coming to an end, and Ferrara, the fuck-you auteur behind "King of New York" and the non-Nic Cage-adorned "Bad Lieutenant," is content with keeping things inside a spacious apartment on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. There aren't any fireballs ascending heavenward, or steely buildings splintering into a million computer generated pieces. The anguish here isn't global, but personal, and instead of millions of people, Ferrara zeroes in on an arty couple, played by Willem Dafoe (channeling his "Antichrist" persona of earnest con...

    Alexander Skarsgård Says His Dad Encouraged Him To Work With Lars Von Trier
