    Watch: New Clip From 'Alps' Is Both Hilarious & Strange

    "We’re going to say this only once. We recommend you go in to 'Alps' as cold as possible," our man in Venice Oliver Lyttelton cautioned in his review. "It’s not quite like anything you’ve seen, and part of its pleasure is watching it play out. There’s no giant twist or anything, but we’re glad we sa...

    Venice '11 Review: 'Alps' Another Unique & Remarkable Film From Director Yorgos Lanthimos

    Until a couple of years ago, few outside his native Greece were aware of theater director-turned-filmmaker Giorgos Lanthimos. But when his third film, "Dogtooth," came from seemingly nowhere to win the top prize at Un Certain Regard at Cannes in 2009, it kicked off a process that's deservedly seen t...

    Watch: Melodramatic & Very Funny Teaser Trailer For Yorgos Lanthimos’ ‘Alps'

    “It’s darker and funnier. It goes to each extreme a little bit more,” director Yorgos Lanthimos said about "Alps" earlier this year. The first teaser trailer for the film has landed at IndieWire and, as claimed, it's both dark and hilarious.

    Read The 15 Rules Of ‘Dogtooth’ Director Yorgos Lanthimos’ New Film ‘Alps’

    Film Tagline: "When The End Is Here, The Alps Are Near"For the most part, press notes for a film are usually a dull affair. A bunch of stapled pages with rehearsed quotes from everyone involved, a synopsis and maybe a few images from the flick. They are a handy tool, but ask anyone who comes back from TIFF or Cannes, almost 90% will end up in the recycling bin. However, every now and then there will be something that will you will want to hang on to. Last year's hardback book for "Uncle Boonme Who Can Recall Past Lives" was a standout, but even something with striking imagery or a memorable presentation will be enough for us to file it away. ...

    First Images & Official Synopsis From 'Dogtooth' Director Yorgos Lanthimos' New Film 'Alps'

    It was a bit of a shocker when Yorgos Lanthimos' provocative "Dogtooth" landed on the Best Foreign Film nominations at the Oscars earlier this year, if only because it's exactly the kind nervy, unique filmmaking that the Academy typically shies away from, particularly in that usually very conservative category. But the recognition spoke to the power of Lanthimos' film, one that shocked, thrilled and disturbed audiences around the world, took home honors from a variety film festivals (including the Un Certain Regard prize at Cannes) and put the Greek filmmaker on the map. Well, Lanthimos is back and and will surely be pushing buttons again wit...

Out Of ItAfter a few months of rumors flying around, the line up for the 2011 Venice Film Festival has been unveiled, and to put it mildly, we're a little bit excited.
