    Review: ‘All Is Bright’ Starring Paul Rudd & Paul Giamatti Is A Mostly Joyless Misfire

    Director Phil Morrison hasn't made a film since his exceptional debut indie, "Junebug," which launched Amy Adams in 2005. Brimming with life, even without the Oscar-nominated and very-worthy firecracker Adams performance, the movie is flush with an idiosyncratic humanity and especially complex and u...

    Rudd and Giamatti in 'All Is Bright': Would You Buy a Christmas Tree from These Men?

    An offbeat, affecting little dark comedy, All is Bright was called Almost Christmas when it was shown at the last Tribeca Film Festival. Luckily, nothing has changed except for the less blatantly seasonal new title. Paul Giamatti and Paul Rudd play down-on-their-luck Canadians who come to New Yor...

    Watch: New Trailer For 'All Is Bright' Starring Paul Rudd & Paul Giamatti

    It's been eight years waiting for a follow-up from Phil Morrison, director of the wry Oscar-nominated drama “Junebug,” and now that the occasion's finally arrived, he's unfortunately faced with being the second Paul Rudd two-hander this year. “All Is Bright,” which premiered in April at Tribeca (und...

    Underrated At the Tribeca Film Festival : 'Almost Christmas'

    The new film from Phil Morrison (the director of Junebug) has not been embraced by most critics at the Tribeca Film Festival (actually, most of them hated it) but I so disagree. Almost Christmas is one of my favorites from this year's festival, a thoroughly fresh dark comedy - more sly and absurd ...

    Music Videos: Penelope Cruz Shimmies For Miguel Bosé & 'Junebug' Helmer Phil Morrison Directs Yo La Tengo

    As crazy as this sounds, we don’t have the best memories of the last time we saw Penelope Cruz wearing little more than some lacy lingerie while singing. In fairness, that’s nothing to do with Cruz herself, but more that said singing in lingerie was taking place during Rob Marshall&rsquo...

    As 'Junebug' Helmer Phil Morrison Announces A New Project, Where Have These 5 Long-Absent Indie Directors Been?

    We were just having a conversation around The Playlist's office pinball machine this week ("Ghostbusters 2"-branded, in case you were wondering) about whatever happened to director Phil Morrison, who helmed the excellent "Junebug" back in 2006 (launching the career of Amy Adams in the process) only ...

    'Junebug' Director Phil Morrison Returns With 'Lucky Dog' Starring Paul Giamatti, Paul Rudd & Sally Hawkins

    It seems directors coming out of the wilderness is a trend that's going to continue in 2012. Last year saw new feature films from long-absent folks like Lynne Ramsay, Alexander Payne and Terrence Malick (who is suddenly on some kind of productive tear), while this year will see Whit Stillman'...
