    Cannes Review: Brilliant & Angry 'Killing Them Softly' Is The Anti-Thriller For Our Times

    "What is that American promise? It's a promise that says each of us has the freedom to make of our own lives what we will, but that we also have obligations to treat each other with dignity and respect," Barack Obama said at the Democratic National Convention in 2008. And that section of the speech ...

    Review: 'Men In Black 3' Is A Surprisingly Decent Return To Form For The Flagging Franchise

    Much has been made of the herculean efforts it took to get “Men in Black 3” to the big screen – the constant rewrites, the lengthy hiatus, Will Smith’s giant trailers pissing off much of lower Manhattan – so the mere fact that “Men in Black 3” is watchable at all is something of a pleasant surprise....

    Cannes Review: Ken Loach's 'The Angel's Share' Is Slight, Sitcom-y & Suspense-Free

    The working class are a little funny in “The Angels’ Share,” English director Ken Loach’s new bluecollar comedy. “The Angels’ Share” is Loach’s (“Kes”) latest film to play Cannes after his “The Wind That Shakes the Barley” won the 2006 Palme D’Or and both "Route Irish" and "Looking for Eric" played ...

    Cannes Review: 'Room 237' An Outstanding, Fascinating & Funny Exploration & Celebration Of 'The Shining'

    Is "The Shining" just a horror movie about a guy who goes berserk in a hotel, or is it subversively about the history of American genocide? Why did Stanley Kubrick use cans of Calumet and Tang in the hotel's storeroom? Were these just random products, or were they each chosen and framed in the camer...

    CANNES REVIEW: Abbas Kiarostami Heads to Japan and Delivers a Tantalizing Mystery With 'Like Someone in Love'

    An Affair to Remember

    Multiple-Academy Award-winning director Leo McCarey, the man who teamed Stan Laurel with Oliver Hardy and supervised all their best silent work, also made perhaps the quintessential screen love story because he knew how to keep the humor in it. Actually, he made the same story twice, with two differ...

    Cannes Review: Abbas Kiarostami Drives In Circles In Dull 'Like Someone In Love'

    After heading to Italy for his last effort "Certified Copy," famed Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami had a very simple reason for making Japan the next stop on his international production jaunt. "...if I make a film in Japan, I won't be accused of making a film for the West. Making a film in Japan...

    CANNES REVIEW: Alain Resnais' 'You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet!' is an Uneven Throwback to His Best Work

    The most prominent member of the French New Wave's Left Bank filmmakers, the 90-year-old Alain Resnais has never really slowed down, but "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet!" is hardly the poetic crowdpleaser of his last outing, 2009's "Wild Grass." While the new movie lacks ...
