    Indie filmmaker Josephine Decker pulled off one of the major coups of the Berlin Film Festival—a “Double Decker.” A cute phrase to communicate the fact that she had her two debut films, “Thou Wast Mild and Lovely” and “Butter On the Latch,” both accepted and premiering at the Berlinale. It's certai...

    Berlin Reviews: ‘Two Men In Town,’ Blind Massage,’ ‘If You Don’t, I Will’ & ‘In Between Worlds’

    A remake of a 1973 French film starring Alain Delon and Jean Gabin, “Two Men In Town” is a sadly missed opportunity. It's a beautifully shot film (kudos to DP Yves Cape, who also served on “Holy Motors” and “White Material”), but one that, aside from some unusual casting decisions, brings nothing ne...

    Review: Oscar Nominated 'Omar' a Taut Thriller about Paranoia's Occupation of the Soul

    Hany Abu-Assad’s smart thriller “Omar,” which has been nominated for the Best Foreign-Language Oscar, is like a modern-day “Romeo & Juliet” tale, if Romeo were a double agent in the middle of the West Bank.

    Review: If Miyazaki's 'The Wind Rises' Is Really His Final Film, It's An Appropriate One

    Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki has achieved status as one of the great filmmakers of his time, with a distinctive visual sensibility that has garnered comparisons to Walt Disney and a depth of imagination that defies any classification other than Miyazaki's own head. From "Princess Mononoke" to th...

    Confessions Of An Anglophile: Downton Abbey – Season 4 On DVD

    GUEST COLUMN by Alice Maltin — When I was young, I dreamed of living in a castle. You do that sort of thing when you grow up in a small, one-bedroom apartment in the Bronx. Well, I did, anyway. I escaped through my imagination into “The Queen Game.”
