    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.

    Venice Review: Ti West's 'The Sacrament,' Starring AJ Bowen, Joe Swanberg & Amy Seimetz

    Thirty-three years on from "Cannibal Holocaust" and fourteen from "The Blair Witch Project," found-footage horror is still going strong. It's no surprise really: they're cheap to make, consistently popular and almost always hugely profitable. But even with the "Paranormal Activity" and "V/H/S" franc...

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

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'...
