    Cartoons Forever!

    As Toy Story 3 racks up some of the best reviews of the year, I’m pleased that so many critics have taken time to make note of the innovative short-subject that accompanies it. Day & Night—which is so clever it’s almost impossible to describe—is the work of an up-and-c...

    REVIEW | Youthful Whimsy from an 88-Year-Old Legend: "Wild Grass"

    Like the 102-year-old Portuguese director Manoel de Oliveira, the 88-year-old Alain Resnais gets a lot of publicity mileage out of staying active in his old age. While seniority hardly necessitates critical leniency, the most impressive aspect of "Wild Grass," Resnais's twenty-fifth directorial effo...

    REVIEW | Parental Lies: "Dogtooth"

    The Greek thriller "Dogtooth" has an original premise that should pique interest for the sake of its ingenuity alone, but the major accomplishment of director Yorgos Lanthimos's Orwellian story emerges from a careful navigation of moods.

    Big Screen | "Dogtooth" Leads Trio of Critically Acclaimed Openers

    After months of scarce offerings of critically acclaimed films, June has certainly proved 2010's MVP.

    REVIEW | Living in the Present: "The Imperialists are Still Alive"

    Records of post-9/11 Middle Eastern life have been virtually absent in Western cinema for obvious, if deplorable, reasons. Zeina Durra mercifully comes to the rescue with a sharp contemporary yarn sporting an appropriately alarming title: "The Imperialists Are Still Alive!" The first-time director's...

    Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M.: Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast At Tiffany's, And The Dawn Of The Modern Woman

    by Sam Wasson (HarperStudio) This splendid new book is more than a mere “making-of” chronicle. It examines Breakfast at Tiffany’s in a variety of contexts, including the careers of its principals (Truman Capote, Audrey Hepburn, Blake Edwards, Henry Mancini, Edith Head, et al),...
