    U.S. Poster For Wong Kar-Wai's 'The Grandmaster' Plus 3-Minute VFX Reel

    Watch: First U.S. Trailer For Wong Kar-Wai's 'The Grandmaster' Features Hilariously Awful Car Commercial Voiceover

    Listen trailer-makers. We get it. Movies in a foreign language are a tough sell the minute you throw subtitles up on the screen. In North America (so their marketing bods tell them), it's likely nine tenths of viewers will tune out at the first sight of a subtitle. But working with an auteur the lev...

    This Friday sees the release of the much-anticipated "Stoker." The melodrama would probably be of note just because it stars Mia Wasikowksa and Nicole Kidman, but it's even more so because it marks the English-language debut of acclaimed Korean filmmaker Park Chan-Wook, the man behind "Sympathy For ...

    Berlin Review: Wong Kar Wai's 'The Grandmaster' Is Occasionally Mesmerizing, Mostly Muddled

    Perhaps the best place to begin a review of Wong Kar Wai’s “The Grandmaster” is at the end -- or a few minutes after.
