    TV IS THE NEW CINEMA: 'Homeland' Takes Off, Leaving Clueless Critics in the Dust

    Some of the people who are watching "Homeland" (Showtime) seem to have little experience watching or reading twisty thrillers, and very little appreciation of the genre's spicy pleasures. The twist revealed at the end of episode four of "Homeland" was a high point for the series, exactly the sort of...

    There are traitors in our midst and they are myriad. Named after the Edgar Allen Poe poem that appears in William Thompson’s (Ben Rosenfield) college lecture, “Boardwalk Empire” episode “William Wilson” centers thematically on duplicity, doppelgangers, and those who are not what they appear to be.

    Review: Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Other Drama - 'Dancing On The Edge' Of Invisibility (Premiered 10/19)

    “I am an invisible man. No, I am not a spook like those who haunted Edgar Allen Poe; nor am I one of your Hollywood-movie extoplasms. I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids—and I might even be said to possess a mind. I am invisible, understand, simply because people refuse to ...

    Recap: Things Get Stitched Together In 'American Horror Story: Coven' Episode 2, 'Boy Parts'

    If there's a downside to the spin-the-wheel, anything goes anthologized approach Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have taken with "American Horror Story," it's that the first episode of each new season has to cover serious ground.

    Pixar's First Television Special, 'Toy Story of Terror!,' is a Funny, Clever Reminder of What the Studio Does Best

    The burdens of a film-a-year schedule and an emphasis on sequels seems to have somewhat dulled the once improbably bright Pixar brand.

    TV IS THE NEW CINEMA: Is Murphy Channeling Argento in Raunchy 'American Horror Story: Coven'?

    Director David Gordon Green's long-planned remake of Dario Argento's candy-colored giallo masterpiece "Suspiria" (1977) is apparently dead. Which is a shame, obviously, although there is a sense in which TV auteur Ryan Murphy has already beaten Green to the punch. It would be hard to imagine a more ...

    Review: 'Toy Story Of Terror!' Is A Hauntingly Great Halloween Special

    Recap: 'Boardwalk Empire' Season 4, Episode 6 'North Star'

    Thematically, we’re following a “North Star” considering guiding lights reunite several estranged members of the “Boardwalk Empire” cast, even if it's a bit of a mid-season episode lull.
