    Recap: 'Breaking Bad,' Season 5, Episode 12 'Rabid Dog'

    "He can't keep getting away with it!" Jesse (Aaron Paul) howls in the twelfth, riveting episode of the final season of "Breaking Bad."

    Venice Review: Terry Gilliam’s ‘The Zero Theorem’ Starring Christoph Waltz, Matt Damon & Tilda Swinton

    It’s been a rough couple of decades to be a Terry Gilliam fan. Not just because he hasn't been as prolific as you’d like him to be, with several false starts or projects that never made it to a greenlight—most famously “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote,” which actually made it to production before fal...

    Telluride Film Festival Review: Palestinian Informant Faces Tough Choices In Somber Award-Winning Drama 'Bethlehem'

    The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is fertile ground for stories of daily life interrupted by wartime discord, but only recently has cinema from the region succeeded at exploring the humanity on both sides of the border.

    Venice Review: Gia Coppola's 'Palo Alto' Starring Emma Roberts, Jack Kilmer & James Franco

    Cinema's just about old enough at this point that we've seen a few three-generation acting dynasties—the Fondas, the Hustons, the Barrymores. But if there's a family that's produced three generations of directors, they're certainly escaping us right now. But enter Gia Coppola. The 26-year-old is, as...

    Telluride Film Festival Review: Is Alfonso Cuarón's 'Gravity' A New Kind of Cinema?

    There's an implicit irony to the title of "Gravity," director Alfonso Cuarón's lost-in-space odyssey, because gravity rarely enters into the equation. Almost entirely shot in a stunningly realistic but entirely digital representation of space, the movie might be the most spectacular two-hander of al...

    Telluride Review: 'The Invisible Woman' Starring Ralph Fiennes & Felicity Jones

    Charles Dickens and his comely, considerably younger mistress have a dickens of a time getting their adulterous act together in “The Invisible Woman,” a directing as well as starring turn for Ralph Fiennes.
