    Venice Review: Steven Knight’s ‘Locke’ Starring Tom Hardy

    Of all the genres, the single location film is perhaps one of the hardest to get right.

    Telluride Review: Shane Salerno's 'Salinger' Documentary Makes For A Compelling Mystery Yarn

    Making a documentary about the 20th (and 21st) century’s most notorious recluse is rife with both hazards and rewards for filmmaker Shane Salerno, whose “Salinger” has to make do without a single video or audio clip of its titular subject — not because of rights restrictions, but because they appare...
