    Exclusive: Trailer For Short Film 'Retrospective' With 'Game Of Thrones' Star Charles Dance

    Among many of the services that "Game Of Thrones" has done (boosting George R. R. Martin's book sales, keeping the fake blood industry alive, etc etc), perhaps the greatest is giving new leases of life to veteran stars. The show's hugely expansive cast features a host of recognizable faces, but give...

    The Films Of Werner Herzog: A Retrospective

    It was 2011 when we first attempted our own "Fitzcarraldo"-like endeavor in writing a comprehensive retrospective on the films of the notoriously prolific Werner Herzog. Since then, not only has he added six or so more titles to his filmography, he's been feverishly at work on the seventh—the much-a...

    The Essentials: 8 Walter Hill Films You Should Know

    No one would love to believe more than film critics that criticism is the repository of the immutable, monolithic truth about a movie's quality. But as much as we may enjoy the dream of our grades and rankings and pithy pullquotes being Carved In Stone, experience has taught us otherwise, and nowher...

    Retrospective: The Films Of Richard Linklater

    It was just a couple of years ago, around the time of “Bernie," that we first ran our retrospective of the films of Richard Linklater. But in the brief period since, he’s made not one, but two films that feel like they, in fact, mark exactly the kind of caesura that should by rights have us looking ...

    Yes, the career of Nicolas Cage has taken what one can argue is a serious nosedive in recent years. His frightening hairline has become the butt of endless jokes, his personal life is always a mess (he named his son Kal-El after Superman and he's on his third wife), and his take-a-paycheck career ch...

    Retrospective: The Films Of Michael Mann

    In 33 years of filmmaking, director Michael Mann has only made 10 theatrically-released feature-length films. Averaging one every three years (with two long gaps of about six years—we're reaching the end of the second now), his un-prolific nature is perhaps due to meticulous and exhausting research ...
