    The Essentials: The Films Of Claude Chabrol

    Looking at the core French New Wave movement in broad strokes, you essentially get five Cahiers Du Cinéma critics-turned-filmmakers: Jean-Luc Godard, the all-you-need-is-a-gun-and-a-woman, pop-cinema deconstructionist turned oblique radical; François Truffaut, the humanist with an affinity for child...

    Retrospective: The Films Of Werner Herzog

    Few filmmakers have had as varied, or colorful, a career as Werner Herzog. A man that Francois Truffaut, who should know, once called "the most important film director alive," Herzog has been knocking out classics, in both the fictional and documentary worlds, for over 40 years now. Pe...

    The Films Of Clint Eastwood, Director: A Retrospective

    On May 31st this year, Clinton "Clint" Eastwood reached 80 years of age, and he's been acting for 56 of them. Remarkably, since TV show "Rawhide" made him a star in 1958, he's been at the top for almost all that time, having had major box office hits in every decade since the '60s: most recently, "G...

    Post-Punk Auteur: The Films Of Olivier Assayas

    The Brooklyn Academy of Music (or BAM, if you prefer its punchier moniker) have titled their Olivier Assayas retrospective "Post-Punk Auteur." The musical connotations of that label slightly undersell the filmmaker's eclecticism—he digs up scores of post-punk tracks, sure, but he also borrows from M...

    The Most Tolerable Works of Tom Cruise: A Retrospective

    While this weekend's "Knight & Day" is on the early track towards being a bomb (or at least to be totally fair, it's underwhelmed so far) and is surely not Tom Cruise's finest work by a long shot (though it does have its charms), the picture does remind us that the while an international star, the c...
