    LFF Review: Francois Ozon's Puzzle Box 'In The House' Never Quite Forms A Full Picture

    Francois Ozon’s previous film, “Potiche,” was a fun and frothy effort, and while it was undeniably beautifully composed and performed, it was arguably also a little inconsequential. Ozon approaches the structurally more ambitious “In the House” from a more devious and darkly comic perspective, yet d...

    Review: 'Cafeteria Man' A One Sided, Fly By Look At The Food Activism Of Chef Tony Geraci

    Review: Why the Latest 'Universal Soldier,' Now On VOD, Is Better Than 'Skyfall'

    What You Won't Learn About Spielberg From Last Night's '60 Minutes' (Video)

    Oscar-season pandering has begun. Steven Spielberg's bid for "Lincoln" kicked into high gear with a tender segment about the personal inspiration behind his work.
