    Venice Review: Terry Gilliam’s ‘The Zero Theorem’ Starring Christoph Waltz, Matt Damon & Tilda Swinton

    It’s been a rough couple of decades to be a Terry Gilliam fan. Not just because he hasn't been as prolific as you’d like him to be, with several false starts or projects that never made it to a greenlight—most famously “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote,” which actually made it to production before fal...

    Telluride Film Festival Review: Palestinian Informant Faces Tough Choices In Somber Award-Winning Drama 'Bethlehem'

    Venice Review: Gia Coppola's 'Palo Alto' Starring Emma Roberts, Jack Kilmer & James Franco

    Cinema's just about old enough at this point that we've seen a few three-generation acting dynasties—the Fondas, the Hustons, the Barrymores. But if there's a family that's produced three generations of directors, they're certainly escaping us right now. But enter Gia Coppola. The 26-year-old is, as...

    Telluride Film Festival Review: Is Alfonso Cuarón's 'Gravity' A New Kind of Cinema?

    There's an implicit irony to the title of "Gravity," director Alfonso Cuarón's lost-in-space odyssey, because gravity rarely enters into the equation. Almost entirely shot in a stunningly realistic but entirely digital representation of space, the movie might be the most spectacular two-hander of al...

    Charles Dickens and his comely, considerably younger mistress have a dickens of a time getting their adulterous act together in “The Invisible Woman,” a directing as well as starring turn for Ralph Fiennes.
