    The Best And Worst Of The 2014 Venice Film Festival

    The accepted wisdom among Venice Film Festival attendees was that this year’s lineup was not one for the ages.

    Venice Review: HBO Miniseries ‘Olive Kitteridge’ Starring Frances McDormand, Richard Jenkins And Bill Murray

It’s the subtle, sublime Lisa Cholodenko-directed 4-hour HBO miniseries “Oli...

    Prestige drama at film festivals is no longer just the domain of movies.

    The 20 Most Anticipated TV Shows Of 2014

    Somehow, we're still getting think pieces on whether or not the movies are superior from TV, presumably from writers who haven't yet worked out that you're allowed to watch both. Ultimately, the movies can scratch itches that TV can't, and vice versa, and the two mediums can quite happily co-exist, ...

With roles already in three 2014 films — "Monuments Me...
