    Telluride XL Day Five: 'Nebraska,' 'Gravity,' 'Prisoners' and a Toast to the 40th Anniversary Fest

    I try not to beat myself up during a film festival. I try to adopt the Zen-like mantra of "wherever you are is the place you're supposed to be." Choosing one movie over another is not a life-or-death situation, and eventually one can usually see anything one wants.

    Violence? Sex? Nudity? Nope, Alexander Payne's 'Nebraska' Rated R For "Some Language" After Losing Appeal

    This summer we’ve seen entire cities decimated (“Man of Steel” and “Pacific Rim”), we’ve seen massacres (“The Lone Ranger”) and countless other scenes of violence and destruction.

    How Will Cannes Films Like 'Inside Llewyn Davis' & 'Only God Forgives' Fare During Oscar Season?

    While it's a more diverse celebration of film of all kinds, few could argue that Cannes hasn't provided a major launching pad for awards movies over the years.
