    Pablo Larraín's NO: A Movie That Says Yes To Itself

    The Chilean film "No," written and directed by Pablo Larraín, is up for a foreign film Oscar this year. I hope it wins, if only to bring attention to an extraordinary film by an increasingly sophisticated director.

    If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Jane Campion marks yet another first-rate filmmaker ("The Piano") who when faced with an uphill climb to get such idiosyncratic smart-films as "Bright Star" financed and released, has transitioned to long-form television.

    Review: 'Side Effects' A Satisfying, Twisty Psychodramatic Thriller From Steven Soderbergh

    "Side Effects," a twisty-turny psychodrama and thriller, will occupy a special place in the Steven Soderbergh oeuvre.

    BULLET TO THE HEAD
