    CINE-LIST: Five International Cinema Highlights from the Palm Springs Film Festival

    Palm Springs International Film Festival excels in its foreign cinema selection, offering up the must-see buzzy titles, but also the lesser-known, equally worthy entries. By this point everyone knows that, say, Miyazaki's "The Wind Rises" or Thomas Vinterberg's "The Hunt" can't be missed. But what a...

    There’s a tricky balance to be found in Australian documentarian Kim Mordaunt’s impressive narrative debut “The Rocket.” Mordaunt, who returns to Laos after exploring the country in his documentary “The Bomb Harvest,” tells a tale that’s both humanistic and soulful, yet political and socially aware....

    Review: Kim Mordaunt's Australian Oscar Submission 'The Rocket,' a Primitivist Parable with Anti-Corporate Message (TRAILER)

    There’s some seductively primeval scenery decorating Aussie director Kim Mordaunt’s “The Rocket,” which is Australia's Oscar entry, if only because its setting -- Laos -- has so seldom appeared on western screens. The film opens in New York City on January 10 and in Los Angeles on January 17 at the ...

    For 'Downton' Obsessives: Dan Stevens in 'Summer in February'

    Why 2013 Was a Banner Year For Documentaries, And 2014 Looks Even Better

    "A banner year for documentary" is what you’re likely to have read in more than a few year-end overviews in recent weeks, and not without reason: 2013 was a great year for documentaries, though also one that drew attention to the ways in which our (mis)use of that word tends to shape and shift our e...

    Review: Giuseppe Tornatore's Campy & Overcooked 'The Best Offer' Starring Geoffrey Rush & Jim Sturgess

    If director Giuseppe Tornatore has had an up-and-down time of it since his breakthrough, 1988's almost universally adored, Oscar-winning "Cinema Paradiso," it has to be said that his most recent film, "The Best Offer," marks a definite low point, even as one of the downs. But that's probably what's ...
