    Eternal Holocaust: At 25, "Shoah" Ages, But Doesn’t Go Stale

    Claude Lanzmann doesn’t want to speak to me. The now-legendary French director of “Shoah,” a nine-and-half hour chronicle of the systematic murdering process behind Hitler’s Final Solution, has been doing interviews all day from a hotel room in lower Manhattan. He was 60 when “Shoah” hit theaters in 1985 and quickly gained status as the quintessential Holocaust documentary; now, at 85, he can’t hear too well, his English skills have started to wane, and his threshold for conversation has apparently diminished as well. Moments before I enter the room, he decides he's done for the day. The filmmaker, like the subject of his most famous movie, c...

    Small Screen | Banksy, Joaquin, Elba, and Walker All Make This Week's Top 5

    This week's biggest news on the small screen may be that Netflix is unveiling new plans for 2011, which include price hikes and a streaming-only option (The Wall Street Journal has the story and analysis).

    REVIEW | Better Than It Sounds: Javier Fuentes-León's "Undertow"

    The Peruvian drama "Undertow" -- not to be confused with David Gordon Green's 2004 thriller of the same name -- manages to work a whole lot better than it sounds on paper. With unabashed sentimentalism, first-time director Javier Fuentes-León assembles the quaint story of Miguel (Christian Mercado), a fisherman stuck between obligations to his pregnant wife Mariela (Tatiana Astengo) and his clandestine affair with a male lover, Santiago (Manolo Cardona). At times turning into a glorified Latin American soap opera, the movie nonetheless overcomes the boundaries of its hackneyed scenario with intense, believable performances and mounting circum...

    "Love and Other Drugs," "Tiny Furniture," and Reasons to Nitpick

Gyllenhaal doesn’t have to work hard to make the line credible, nor does the movie bend over backwards to avoi...

    REVIEW | Truth in Advertising: Tom Hooper's "The King's Speech"

    "The King's Speech" fuses several genres into an unlikely blend. It's a lavish period piece about British rule in the years leading up to World War II, a buddy movie about two men of different social classes learning to get along, and a crowdpleasing tale of athletic triumph, complete with the requi...
