    This weekend, “The Raid 2” opens, in all its chop-socky glory, in limited release and will expand in the weeks to come.

    12 Indie Directors Who Jumped To Blockbuster Budgets

    This week sees the release of “Noah,” and it’s notable for a number of reasons. For one, it’s that it’s a relatively rare Biblical movie not aimed principally at religious audiences (which may or may not pay off).

    21 Movies About Weird, Kinky Or Compulsive Sex

    Perhaps the most surprising thing about Lars Von Trier’s “Nymphomaniac,” Volume 1 of which opens in the US this weekend (our review is here) is not Shia LaBeouf’s accent, it's that it’s a film that is totally, unashamedly, unavoidably about sex.

    It’s 2008. April-ish. Manchester. My girlfriend of 18 months and I have just broken up. The first really serious, vaguely grown-up relationship, the one that makes you understand why people put themselves through all of that stuff. It's been on its way for a while, but the plug was finally pulled in...
