    Ranking The 20 Greatest, Most Celebrated Long Takes

    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.

    Blessed Are The Forgetful: Remembering ‘Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind’ On Its 10th Anniversary

    In a culture of cellphone-snapped selfies it’s hard to imagine a time when people might have been afraid of their own image.
