    Despite the immediately ecstatic critical responses after its Venice premiere, Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity" was still something of a box office question mark leading up to its nationwide release earlier this month with many wondering if its particularly audacious brand of big budget filmmaking would b...

    BFI London Film Festival Diary Day 6: 'Labor Day,' 'The Selfish Giant,' 'Of Good Report' & More

    It's not the coolest thing to admit in certain circles, but I'm an unrepentant fan of Jason Reitman's work. Though his debut "Thank You For Smoking" was uneven (though a little fun), his three subsequent films have shown him to be a fine director of actors, and to have a real command of tone, and I ...

    Cross Post: London Film Festival - Shorts Short on Women Directors

    I'm a big fan of short films and generally go to a lot of the programmes of these that the LFF curate. This year we've booked five, and our first was a comedy lineup.

    BFI London Film Fest Diary Day 4: 'All Is Lost,' 'Mistaken For Strangers,' 'Jodorowsky's Dune' & More

    You could speculate about the reasons for it, but few could deny that there's something in the air involving survival narratives. Last year saw "The Grey," "Life Of Pi" and "Kon-Tiki" premiere to acclaim, and right now, Sandra Bullock's battle against the void of space in "Gravity" has led to rave r...
