    Within the span of a couple months, audiences and media have witnessed the debauched excess of the American Dream gone sour, of attractive young men and women imbibing themselves to delirium, violence and self-destruction.

    Recap: Christopher Guest's 'Family Tree' Gets Off To A Promising Start & Shows He Hasn't Lost His Touch

    It's been seven far-too-long years since the last feature effort from Christopher Guest, and besides a failed pilot for the U.S. adaptation of the U.K. hit "The Thick Of It" and appearing alongside his regular roster players in a sketch for the 2012 Oscars, not much as been heard from him. But the w...

    Here Are Indiewire's Top 10 Articles of the Week: Criticizing 'Gatsby,' Lee Daniels' Latest, BAM's Booed At Cannes Series and More

    Review: ‘Aftershock’ Is Like ‘Piranha 3D’ Meets ‘The Impossible’

    Eli Roth was hailed by none other than genre demigod Quentin Tarantino as “the future of horror” following his debut feature “Cabin Fever,” a grotesquely inventive chiller about a flesh-eating virus that has its way with a group of youngsters out camping in the woods.

    Review: 'Peeples' is a Charming Farce with Black Family Ties (Opens Today)

    The thing to really appreciate about Peeples is its rich and genuine portrayal of the black family at its center. This isn't the hackneyed, artificial blackness we're used to seeing on screen.
