    Watch: 'Rosewater''s Jon Stewart and Gael Garcia Bernal Talk Purposeful Inauthenticity (Exclusive)

    That Jon Stewart is a fun interview is no surprise. We expect him to be thoughtful and smart. But still, it's not your everyday Comedy Central talk show host who takes a hiatus to direct his first film, an intensely dramatic feature about Iranian journalist Maziar Bahari (Newsweek), who was imprison...

    Telluride Review: ‘Madame Bovary’ Starring Mia Wasikowska, Ezra Miller, Paul Giamatti & Rhys Ifans

    It is not prerequisite that the period costume drama needs a hook, but it certainly doesn’t hurt. Joe Wright’s stylish “Anna Karenina” dazzled with a theatrical approach, and Andrea Arnold’s “Wuthering Heights” employed an austere commitment to form coupled with an expressively Malick-ian appreciati...

    Telluride Review: Ophir Award Nominee 'Dancing Arabs'

    "Dancing Arabs" indulges in a peculiar kind of late ‘80s/early ‘90s nostalgia: a fond wistfulness for a time in the Middle East when Jews and Arabs mostly despised each other, but actual casualties from terrorism or reprisals were few… friendships across the racial/religious divide were more common…...

    Telluride Review: 'Escobar: Paradise Lost' Starring Benicio Del Toro And Josh Hutcherson

    You know that deeply anxious expression that Josh Hutcherson wears throughout "The Hunger Games" movies? Well, if you’re a fan of his trademark chagrined countenance, you get a whole lot more of it in "Escobar: Paradise Lost," where his character has a pretty good reason for near-constant concern. I...
