    Watch: Full Trailer For Aussie Omnibus 'The Turning' Directed By Justin Kurzel, Mia Wasikowska & More

    Over the past few years it seems that we’ve seen more and more omnibus films, from arty travelogues (“Paris, je t’aime”) to horror (“The ABCs of Death”). What sets “The Turning” apart, however, is that it’s an adaptation of the Tim Winton novel of the same name. While we’ve already seen a teaser for...

    Mia Wasikowska Joins Juliette Binoche In Olivier Assayas' 'Sils Maria'

    That Mia Wasikowska is everywhere. The elfin darling of the indie elite (who has been known to slum it for the odd blockbuster, like breakthrough "Alice in Wonderland"), she has sustained the critical momentum of the pajama-clad daughter in “The Kids Are All Right” to dominate the Sundance acting co...

    Trailer: Glenn Close Cross-Dresses In Tonally Odd 'Albert Nobbs' Trailer

    Isn't this supposed to be a drama? It's hard to tell from the goofy first half of this trailer, which feels like some lighthearted British comedy. Directed by Rodrigo García (”Mother & Child,” “Nine Lives”), "Albert Nobbs" is a tale of a struggling, penniless woman who has to pose as a man so she can work as a butler in Dublin's most posh hotel in 19th century Ireland. A passion project by producer and star Glenn Close, the film started out as a short story by Irish author George Moore and was first adapted into an off-Broadway production by Simone Benmussa. It's been a long time coming for this film as Close starred in that version back in 1...

    Gus Van Sant Talks Ben & Matt's Unfinished Post-'Good Will Hunting' Project, 'Restless' & More

    Eclectic Filmmaker Talks James Franco, 'My Private Idaho,' Dennis Hopper & His New Coming-Of-Age RomanceThe title of Gus Van Sant’s latest picture, “Restless” might as well describe the director himself. Genre-hopping, making movies for both the Hollywood system and himself, and long a fixture on the indie film scene, he’s undoubtedly one of the most significant American filmmakers working today. His lastest is a far cry from his more experimental entries like "Gerry," "Last Days" or even the "Psycho" remake, tackling the story of two teens in love even as one of them suffers from terminal cancer. It's yet another new direction for Van Sant a...

    Review: Gus Van Sant's 'Restless' A Sappy Misfire From A Director Capable Of So Much More

    Gus Van Sant has long been fascinated by young people – the way they interact with each other, the way they move, the way they emote, and, most importantly, the way they die (or at the very least face their mortality head-on – you could even lump his interesting, if aimless, "Psycho" remake in there). But he's never dared to make a movie as self-indulgent, pointless, mushy, and boring as "Restless," one that borrows heavily from movies much better than it ("Harold & Maude," "Love Story," "An American Werewolf in London," countless French New Wave flicks), and fails to leave even the slightest impression, beyond the thought of never, ever, eve...

    Telluride '11 Review: Glenn Close's Exquisite Performance Powers 'Albert Nobbs'

    The 19th century Ireland of director Rodrigo García's "Albert Nobbs" is rigid with insurmountable societal distinctions: every soul has his or her station firmly proscribed at birth, and escape is virtually unheard of. Against this stifling backdrop, García crafts an engaging, entertaining and enlightening piece of work that is richly dramatic and underscored by moments of wry, quiet humor. It doesn't hurt that, making good on all the pre-festival buzz, the film features Glenn Close in a performance that seems destined to earn her a sixth Oscar nomination and perhaps her first win (it would be well deserved).  She plays a woman who is passing...
