    15 Cinematographers Turned Directors

    This weekend, the Johnny Depp-starring “Transcendence” opens in all its technophobic glory, across the nation, and while the reviews, ours included, so far, have ranged from mildly poisonous to all-out toxic, the proof will as ever be in the box office pudding. But not only is it a litmus test for w...

    The 10 Best Episodes Of 'Mad Men'

    It might not be the pop culture phenomenon that it once was (the grabbier, faster likes of “True Detective” and “Game Of Thrones” having surpassed it at the nation’s watercoolers), but last Sunday saw the return of “Mad Men,” and if the seventh season premiere was anything to go by, it’s as good as ...

    10 Movies Turned Into TV Shows

    Last night saw the arrival of "Fargo" on FX, the second attempt (after a very shortlived late-90s version starring Edie Falco in the role that won Frances McDormand an Oscar) to bring the Coen Brothers' beloved comedy-drama to the small screen. Unlike that version, this is something "inspired" by ra...

    The Lost, Unmade & Abandoned Projects Of Director David Gordon Green

    "I have a sense of humor. I'm not always this lyrical, slow-moving, Southern crybaby." If the hallmark of the film auteur is cultivating and identifying a unique style, former indie wunderkind David Gordon Green has been systematically tearing down his signature status for a few years now.

    20 Best & Worst Films Made From Black List Scripts

    Tomorrow sees the release of Ivan Reitman's "Draft Day," a sports drama starring Kevin Costner and Jennifer Garner. There aren't many reasons that it's particularly notable, other than being a late-period Ivan Reitman movie that doesn't have terrible reviews (merely middling ones). However, it's cla...

    The Films Of Nicolas Cage: A Retrospective

    Yes, the career of Nicolas Cage has taken what one can argue is a serious nosedive in recent years. His frightening hairline has become the butt of endless jokes, his personal life is always a mess (he named his son Kal-El after Superman and he's on his third wife), and his take-a-paycheck career ch...

    The 10 Best Performances In The Films Of Jim Jarmusch

    It all seems so obvious in retrospect. Of course, of all the parts Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston were born to play, a pair of lovelorn vampires battling the ennui of immortality in a Jim Jarmusch movie should always have been at the top of the list. “Only Lovers Left Alive,” which opens this week...
