    Filmmaker Says The Period Working On 'The Lovely Bones' Was A "Horrible Time," Calls The 2009 Version "Absolutely Awful"Contrary to popular belief, Playlist writers are not always on the same page, but one recently (re-)acclaimed filmmaker does bind most of us.

    Another New Clip & Images From Lynne Ramsay's 'We Need To Talk About Kevin'

    It seems the team behind Lynne Ramsay's "We Need To Talk About Kevin" has been pushing their film harder than anyone else on the Croisette in terms of advance footage, but it's clear to see why. The premise isn't an easily sellable one, telling the story of a mother (Tilda Swinton) of a teenage boy ...

    Cannes Film Festival: 10 Films That Will Be Making Noise On The Croisette

    This year at Cannes, it seems that you'll be able to throw a rock and manage to hit a celebrity. In stark contrast to last year's festival -- which some colleagues told us was the worst in a decade -- Cannes honcho Thierry Fremaux is bringing the goods this year with a cineaste's wet dream of films from some of the finest auteurs working today. However, what unfolds over the next few days will be fascinating. Not everything can be a masterpiece, there will be some unexpected disasters and more enticingly, some pleasant surprises. We've run down the list of the films that are likely to be making the biggest noise on the Croisette this year, an...

    First Look At Tilda Swinton & John C. Reilly In Lynne Ramsay's 'We Need To Talk About Kevin'

    It has been almost a decade since Lynne Ramsay's "Morvern Callar," and while some of that time was spent on an adaptation of "The Lovely Bones" that was scuttled (with Peter Jackson later delivering his take on the material to theaters), we're glad she's finally back. Next month she'll hit Cannes wi...

    The Playlist Foolishly, and Prematurely, Tries To Predict The 2012 Best Picture Oscar Nominations

    It would be safe to say that The Playlist is as sick of the just-wrapped-up awards season as anyone. The endless ceremonies, often with the same results, the blind guesses, the half-informed speculation; by the time it reaches March, we're kind of furious with the whole circus.

    Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood To Score Lynne Ramsay's 'We Need To Talk About Kevin'

    What a helluva ride it's been for fans of decent music over the past Sunday evening and Monday morning. First, Arcade Fire take home the Grammy for Album Of The Year, trumping a host of favored (and frankly, shitty) acts. Radiohead announces a new album -- "The King Of Limbs" -- this morning that is...

    John C. Reilly Talks Lynne Ramsay's 'We Need To Talk About Kevin,' A Meditation On Parenthood

    2011 is quickly shaping up to be an exciting year for female-driven/directed pictures, with a wealth of great, intelligent options for people that are frankly sick of the overtly male-dominated market (or Katherine Heigl). Multiplexes will see Kristen Wiig lead an ensemble of funny ladies in "Bride...

    The Playlist's Most Anticipated Films Of 2011 - Part 2

    Alright, continuing with our Most Anticipated Films of 2011 series which will roughly be in four parts (unfortunately, character/size limits prevent us from doing one massive feature). Here's part one which we published yesterday. If you're wondering where some of the tentpoles were yesterday -- "X-Men: First Class," "Cowboys And Aliens" and "Sherlock Holmes" -- well, they're here. If you were asking, whether indie-driven auteurs would be represented -- Lynne Ramsay's return with "We Need To Talk About Kevin," Mike Mills' "Beginners" or David Cronenberg's "A Dangerous Method" -- well, they're all here too. The way these lists are lumped toget...
