    With "Sex and the City 2" continuing summer 2010's now month-long tradition of Hollywood films sucking, what better weekend to turn your summer filmgoing over to the art house? Though with films like "George A. Romero's Survival of the Dead" and "Agora" getting similarly horrific critical responses, perhaps it's just as bad on the other side.

His "Micmacs," a comic satire on the arms race, premiered at last year's Toronto International Film Festival and is being r...

    Fantasy on the Croisette: Cannes in a Nutshell

    As it does every year, the Cannes Film Festival developed gradual momentum over the course of the last two weeks. The main competition, though really only one part of the annual story, nabbed the spotlight with a culturally diverse selection deemed spotty before it even started. Once the program beg...

    CANNES REVIEW | Oh God(ard): Is "Film Socialisme" the Scandale au Festival?
