    10 Highlights From the New York Film Critics Circle Awards, From Kathryn Bigelow on Torture to Armond White Heckling Michael Moore

    Unlike a lot of awards programs, critics awards tend to announce the winners in advance. As a result, the tension in the room involves not the identity of the winners but what might transpire as they accept their prizes. That was certainly the case at the 78th annual New York Film Critics Circle Awa...

    Honor Roll 2012: Matthew McConaughey Wants a Viagra Study, Has an 18 Handicap and Thinks You've Got to "Enjoy the Architecture"

    For a while there, it looked as if Matthew McConaughey would never shake his on-screen image as the stoned, shirtless, good ol’ boy who mugged through Southern-fried thrillers and C-grade rom coms. But 2012 finally stuck a pin in all that as the 43-year-old Texas-born star stretched in every way he ...

    Gerard Butler, Matthew McConaughey & Sam Worthington Star In Simon West's 3D CG Mo-Cap 'Thunder Run'

    WTF Look out "Magic Mike," a new movie is coming to town that's gonna try and rival you in the beefcake department. But don't worry, it also sounds like one hundred bad ideas someone put together in a blender before hitting frappé.

    Juno Temple On Nudity, Looking For Prince Charming In 'Killer Joe' & The Influence Of 'Badlands'

    If "Killer Joe" and his previous collaboration with playwright Tracy Letts, "Bug," are anything to go by, William Friedkin should consider never working with anyone else again; together, the films are easily the best things he's made since his 1970s heyday, and worlds away from the anonymous thrille...

    'Take Shelter' Director Jeff Nichols Talks 'Mud,' Hopes To Have Michael Shannon In Supporting Role

    Shannon Studying Ulysses S. Grant And Other Generals For His Zod Role In 'Superman'Things are looking pretty good for Arkansas filmmaker Jeff Nichols. A quick summer shoot for his sophomore offering "Take Shelter" (starring Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain) lead to it being sold to Sony Picture Classics before even playing the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. The quiet, occasionally startling meditation on marriage and fatherhood received rave reviews during its time at both the former festival and Cannes, picking up two prizes from the Croisette on its way out. But Nichols didn't bask in the glory for too long, as he was already...

    Venice '11 Review: 'Killer Joe' A Terrific Texan Tale With A Revelatory Matthew McConaughey Turn

    In recent years, film translations of stage hits haven't been as prevalent as they once were. You might get the occasional "Doubt" or "Rabbit Hole," for instance, but compared to the early days of the talkies, when a large proportion of movies were based on Broadway hits, it's been slim pickings; au...

    Matthew McConaughey To Play Ex-Stripper In Steven Soderbergh's 'Magic Mike'

    Richard Linklater, William Friedkin, Lee Daniels, Jeff Nichols and now Steven Soderbergh. These are just some of the helmers Matthew McConaughey has worked with since 2009's "Ghosts Of Girlfriends Past," the tedious rom-com that seems to have spooked the actor into ditching the easy paychecks that r...

    Matthew McConaughey & Reese Witherspoon Will Get Dirty In 'Mud' For Director Jeff Nichols

    Are we witnessing the renaissance of Matthew McConaughey? That would certainly appear to be the case. The actor seemed to be stuck in a rut of terrible rom-coms (see every movie he did with Kate Hudson) and failed tentpoles ("Sahara"), and we wondered what happened to the actor who charmed us in "Dazed & Confused" and impressed in "A Time To Kill." Well, the actor woke up one morning and decided to line up an array of solid film projects. This year has already seen "The Lincoln Lawyer" become a sleeper hit and favorite with critics and he's been busy lining up auteur-driven projects with Richard Linklater's "Bernie," William Friedkin's "Kille...

    One of the most quotable and riotously funny characters in popular culture at the moment has to be the anti-hero that is Kenny Powers from HBO's "Eastbound & Down," the brain child of Danny McBride, David Gordon-Green, Jody Hill and Ben Best.

    L.A. Film Fest Review: Richard Linklater's 'Bernie' Is A Good Man

    Meet Bernie: a man who has truly found his place in this world as an assistant funeral director and beloved member of the community in the small Texas town of Carthage. Soft spoken with an arguably effeminate Southern accent, of a round stature but always with admirable posture, Bernie Tiede is a ge...
