    First Look: Antonio Banderas In Pedro Almodóvar's 'The Skin That I Inhabit'

    A new film from Pedro Almodóvar is always cause for celebration, and no wonder that his next effort, "The Skin That I Inhabit" is one our most anticipated films of the year. Helping to stoke that fire is the ambitious nature of the project, which promises to be one of the most intriguing outings yet...

    In Theaters: 'Season of the Witch,' 'Country Strong,' and...

    Probably Best to Hit Up Your Netflix InsteadYikes, guys. YIKES. It is really dismal for new releases this week. REALLY dismal. The first opening Friday of 2011 is kicking off with not a bang but a fizzle, as is traditional for the first week of January, which really should just be deemed Oscar Catch-Up Week-- go see one of the excellent releases from the last couple of weeks ("Blue Valentine," "True Grit," "The Fighter," "Rabbit Hole," "Another Year") or rent something ("The Kids Are Al Rright") to improve your chances of sweeping the Oscar pool, cause it's ugly out there. It could be possibly entertaining, as the inimitable Nic Cage 2.0 brin...

    Review: 'If I Want To Whistle, I Whistle' Starts Off Well But Takes The Path of Least Resistance

    Movies tend to to depict jail in one, collective fashion: scummy, bleak, frightening. Juvenile prison, however, is rarely touched upon in cinema. For this writer's money, the only film to represent it at all was the pretty terrible "United States of Leland." Although the inclusion of classes, work, sport, etc. are more or less offered in "big boy" prison, the way juvie implements them make it feel more like a super strict boarding school than a place of punishment. Quite an oddity indeed, so much that it's a wonder why few filmmakers have taken a dip into that world. Leave it to Romania, motherland of broody art house affairs, to set one of t...

    My Favorite Films Of 2010: Christopher Bell

    I'm going to put it bluntly: If The Playlist didn't take me on as a contributor I would have never seen as many movies as I had, and nearly half of my list would probably be sitting in my Netflix queue well into 2011. So without being sappy (and yes, in being totally public about it), I appreciate t...

    My Favorite Films Of 2010: Drew Taylor

    2010 was a year which initially seemed quite bleak and like all things over-emphasized for dramatic effect, picked up drastically before everything was said and done. Thematically, the most arresting films investigated the line between imagination and reality, from Leonardo DiCaprio battling his very literal demons in a pair of dreamworld thrillers ("Inception," which charted here, and Martin Scorsese's gorgeous trifle "Shutter Island," which did not) to Natalie Portman's Grand Guignol psychological breakdown in "Black Swan," to Woody's self-delusion in "Toy Story 3" and Scott Pilgrim's videogame-enhanced brawling in "Scott Pilgrim vs. the Wo...

    Salma Hayek & Spanish Comedian Jose Mota To Star In 'As Luck Would Have It'

    Salma Hayek has been floundering a bit in Hollywood lately. Last summer she had a thankless role in the dreadful "Grown Ups" and prior to that she starred in a number of films that ended up being non-starters such as "Cirque Du Freak," "Lonely Hearts" and "Ask The Dust." So, we can't say we're too s...
