    Coriolanus Opens and Ralph Fiennes Has a Pillow Fight With Andy Cohen

    Publicizing a film makes for very strange sleepovers. Ralph Fiennes’ stunning modern-day version of Coriolanus – which Fiennes directed and stars in – arrives in theaters today after a brief awards-qualifying run in December. Set in a country resembling Serbia during the war, with ...

    In Theaters: Go 'Haywire' With 'Miss Bala,' 'Red Tails' & 'Underworld: Awakening' Or Go Shakespeare With 'Coriolanus'

    What a weekend for female-oriented action movies! It's almost like Steven Soderbergh requested "Haywire" be released the same weekend as "Underworld: Awakening," the latest entry in the dum-dum vampire franchise. You know, as a commentary on the female action hero. Regardless...

    Sunday was a major day for Oscar prognosticators, as a number of critics organizations went live with their end-of-2011 honors. Some films gained support, and some lost quite a bit of steam, but for those of you who look at the whole thing like a horse race, there was a lot of movement amongst a thi...

    Review: The Ralph Fiennes-Directed 'Coriolanus' Is As Well-Acted As It Is Challenging

    From what little we know of Shakespeare's life, "Coriolanus" was one of his later tragedies; compared to his other works in the same vein, it's one of his more complex ones as well. It doesn't offer us a father betrayed like" King Lear," or a good man undone by his ow...

    TIFF '11 Review: The Ralph Fiennes-Directed 'Coriolanus' Is As Well-Acted As It Is Challenging

    From what little we know of Shakespeare's life, "Coriolanus" was one of his later tragedies; compared to his other works in the same vein, it's one of his more complex ones, as well. It doesn't offer us a father betrayed, like" King Lear," or a good man undone by his own wants, like "Macbeth"; instead, it gives us a Roman general who, in his hunger for war, devours his life -- family, country, honor -- when the world will not let him be a warrior and, instead, insists he be a war hero. Thrust into politics, Coriolanus is a general, then a politician, and then despised by the people who called for his elevation -- leading him to ally with his...
