    Nicolas Winding Refn Opens Up About His Failures: 'I've come to realize I'm probably not the world's greatest filmmaker'

    This year has been a contentious one for Nicolas Winding Refn. Two years after his previous film, "Drive," was a sensation at Cannes, and garnered him a director's prize, his latest film, "Only God Forgives," had a much rockier reception on the TK. This might be why the Danish director was especiall...

    Patricia Clarkson Talks New Projects, "Motherlover," Lars von Trier And The "Perks" Of The Movie Business

    The very first thing we heard Patricia Clarkson say, at the opening press conference given by the jury of the 2013 Marrakech Film Festival, was that at that point in the proceedings, all they had actually been doing was drinking. At which the collected luminaries including Jury president Martin Scor...

    Alicia Vikander Talks The "Daring" ‘Hotell,’ ‘Ex Machina,’ ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ & More

    Sometimes neophyte actresses come along who fizzle out after a couple of early promising roles. And then there are those who, from practically the first glimpse we get of them, we just know are going to be big, and are going to be around for a while. Alicia Vikander, a no-brainer inclusion on our On...

    Review: Mental Illness Drama 'Hotell' Starring Marrakech Best Fest Actress Alicia Vikander

    By turns funny, sad and discomfiting, Swedish director Lisa Langseth's "Hotell" is a terrific showcase for many of its ensemble, but especially its lead, Alicia Vikander, who here reteams with Langseth, director of her pre-"A Royal Affair," pre-"Anna Karenina" breakout, "Pure." But more than simply ...

    Interview: Juliette Binoche On 'Sils Maria,' The Career/Life Balance & Finally Going Hollywood In 'Godzilla'

    When revered Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami cancelled his attendance at the Marrakech Film Festival due to ill health, the organizers could have had a further problem on their hands as he was meant, in addition to giving a masterclass, to be handing out the award at one of the “Hommages”—the trib...

    Marrakech Interview: Terry Gilliam On 'The Zero Theorem,' Re-Mounting 'Don Quixote' & The Return Of Monty Python

    Something in the Moroccan air agrees with Terry Gilliam. When we met him here last, two years ago, he was in fine, jocular form and again this time he laughed and joked his way through his Marrakech Film Festival duties as a returning guest.

    Terry Gilliam on Why 'The Zero Theorem' is the Most 'Extreme' Film He's Made and Where He's at With 'Don Quixote'

    Terry Gilliam is in some kind of zone. On a pristine, 65 degree December morning in Marrakech, Morocco, I find him sitting alone on the back patio of the Mamounia Hotel, listening to birds.
