    Timeliest DVD: Nanni Moretti's 'We Have A Pope'

    Why is this pope hiding in the bushes? The first comic conceit in Nanni Moretti's delightful and touching 2011 film We Have A Pope (Habemus Papam) is that no one wants to be pope, especially the guy who is elected, Cardinal Melville -- played by the extraordinary Michel Piccoli. There is no ti...

Though ultimately a flattering praise, it doesn't exactly paint an accurate picture. Generally composing movies with a perfect blend of comedic and dramatic elements,...

    Having previously won the Palme d'Or for "The Son's Room" in 2001, expectations were likely riding a little too high when festival regular Nanni Moretti returned to the Croisette last year to premiere "We Have a Pope" (aka "Habemus Papam"). Perhaps put off by th...
