    Cannes: While American Films Flatlined, Here Are the Highlights From Un Certain Regard

    It was a big year for American films in competition at the Cannes Film Festival, but in the neighboring Un Certain Regard section, they came and went with a whimper. Perhaps that's because they simply played it too safe in a section filled with daring creativity. Literally translated as "Of a Certa...

    Review: Margarethe von Trotta's 'Hannah Arendt' an Alluring Portrait of Mass Guilt and One Woman Who Wouldn't Back Down

    Margarethe von Trotta’s captivating “Hannah Arendt” is a slice of a biopic; it covers a ferociously controversial two years in the life of the 20th century philosopher who, during that time, would coin the term “the banality of evil.” Through Arendt’s story, the film looks at uneasy manifestations o...

    Why Zal Batmanglij's 'The East' Is Fascinating and Illogical at the Same Time

    Suspenseful, ludicrous, fascinating, and utterly unsubtle, Zal Batmanglij's "The East" plays like an unholy mash-up of "Martha Marcy May Marlene" and "Alias." The film builds on the themes of cult and identity that Batmanglij and his star Brit Marling explored artfully in their breakout debut "The S...

    Cannes Review: ‘Stranger By The Lake’ An Impressively Controlled, Sexually Explicit Tale Of Gay Summer Love & Murder

    The scheduling of the Cannes Film Festival works in such a way that it’s rare that we get to see any film based on anything as spontaneous as peer recommendation unless it’s already been on our radar for a few weeks beforehand. But one film that did come to our notice by that route, and then had the...

    Review: Douglas and Damon Shine in Soderbergh's Funny, Poignant Melodrama 'Behind the Candelabra'

    The Cannes Film Festival accorded Steven Soderbergh's lush period melodrama "Behind the Candelabra" a prime competition slot (his fourth) for a reason. While it's not the first time an HBO movie has played in the mainbar (Stephen Hopkins' "The Life and Death of Peter Sellers" was in competition in 2...

    Cannes Review: The Bright Colors Of 'Grigris' Can't Save Monochrome Story

    While Cannes had no shortage of high-profile titles to choose from, sometimes the most exciting thing about hitting the Croisette is discovering something flying under the radar. And unlike the auteur and star-driven movies, the push and pull over going to see something unknown versus eating, writin...

    Cannes Review: Worthy Medieval Parable 'Michael Kohlhaas' Nowhere Near Sum Of Impressive Parts

    Itself loosely based on a true story, the 19th century novella by Heinrich von Kleist, “Michael Kohlhaas," has been adapted several times for screen, notably by Volker Schlöndorff in 1969, even spawning “The Jack Bull," a pretty good HBO restaging starring Johns Cusack and Goodman, in 1999. But with...

    BOOK REVIEW: "The Art of EPIC"

    Blu Sky's Epic is a visually stunning film, an amazing leap forward for the Connecticut studio; no previous film by the team has been as technically impressive or imaginatively executed, and this is where author Tara Bennett shines as chronicler.

    Why This Year's Cannes Film Festival Prizes Went to the Right Films

    "I know that it would be nice to have some drama," Steven Spielberg said at the press conference with his fellow jurors at the Cannes Film Festival on Sunday. However, according to the jury's esteemed president, nobody "bumped heads about the films were privileged to see here."
