I’m sorry to report that 2013 is almost over, because it’s going to be remembered as a year of fabulous cinema and seriously award-worthy performances. Before we settle in for another season of televised trophy handouts, let’s contribute our own accolades: Here are our 10 favorite movie performances of 2013.
I don’t quite understand the breathless adulation for American Hustle, which is shaping up to being one of the best-reviewed movies of the year in spite of its ridiculous, bafflingly hammy characters. But Amy Adams’ turn as the accent-twisting Sydney Prosser reminds of you of her Oscar-nominated work in The Fighter: That Veronica Lake coif conceals grim, resolute power and a bit of fear. Amy Adams is the master (teehee!) of pairing silent conviction and nervous energy, even when she’s in the middle of a high-stakes, allegiance-shifting love triangle with Bradley Cooper and »

I'm of the opinion 2013 was a great year for movies overall, but at the same time it wasn't necessarily a great year with a ton of great movies, thus making my top ten of 2013 a little harder than I'd expected to put together. Before finalizing the list I attempted to watch and rewatch as many movies as I could fit in while at the same time hoping to create some distance from those experiences, expecting a certain grouping of films to eventually bubble to the surface as the most memorable and emotional affecting in what really ended up being a rather dark and melancholy year at the cinema. For me, a year end top ten is about the films I want to watch again. Films that, as soon as they end, you could watch them all over again immediately, not wanting whatever connection to what you just saw to go away. »

Federal judge Ruben Castillo ruled that all of the Sherlock Holmes stories written before the year 1923 have entered the public domain. The 10 or so stories written after that date -- which include storylines like Dr. Watson's second wife and Sherlock Holmes' retirement -- will still remain under copyright.
This decision was made after author Leslie Klinger wrote the book "The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes" and contributed to the anthology "In the Company of Sherlock Holmes," and was then threatened by Doyle's estate. Klinger went to get a judicial declaration saying that, by copyright law, the Sherlock Holmes stories belong in public domain.
The traditional law is that copyright life ends 95 years after publication or after the life of the »
As with any year, some people have begun arguing that 2013 was a bad year for film, because of the expected glut of effects-heavy blockbusters that litter the multiplexes each summer, or because there was a lack of auteur-driven storytelling for the majority of the year. Though it is indeed frustrating that studios hold their more prestigious films until the last month or two of this or any year, 2013 was an excellent year for film. You shouldn’t have to look first to Sound on Sight’s list of the 30 best films of 2013 for proof, but you should add it to the pile, no doubt. We asked our film writers to provide their personal lists of the 15 best films of the year; everyone’s number-one pick got 15 points allocated, everyone’s number-two pick got 14 points, and so on. (As you’ll see, the point values for each of the 30 films is included here. »

Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz play a couple who make a sex tape one night, then realise it's gone missing the next morning, prompting a "frantic search for its whereabouts". Segel and Diaz reunite three years on from Bad Teacher (and a half year ahead of Bad Teacher 2, which is also being directed by the man in charge here, Jake Kasdan, whose first ever job was on Freaks & Geeks). This is also, possibly, Segel's Machinist: he's got ever so thin for the part.

‘American Hustle’ and David O. Russell movies box office: Russell’s latest has stronger than expected wide-release debut, could become the director’s top-grossing movie (photo: Amy Adams in ‘American Hustle’) Directed by David O. Russell, and starring Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Christian Bale, Jennifer Lawrence, and Jeremy Renner, American Hustle opened with a better than expected $19.1 million after expanding to 2,507 North American locations, according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. Some pundits had been expecting a debut in the low-to-mid teens. For comparison’s sake: Three years ago, David O. Russell’s The Fighter, which also featured American Hustle‘s Christian Bale and Amy Adams, expanded to 2,503 locations, grossing a considerably more modest $12.56 million. Comparisons to last year’s Silver Linings Playbook — also directed by Russell, and featuring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence — are impossible to make, as that film expanded to 2,523 locations only on its tenth »

Actors best known for their roles in TV and cinema are thrilling audiences and critics in plays full of violent, challenging action
The revered Kenneth Tynan, who reviewed theatre for the Observer in the 1950s and 1960s, said: "A good drama critic is one who perceives what is happening in the theatre of his time." All the same, it can be hard to spot a golden age when you are in the middle of it. It seems probable, though, that the London stage is enjoying at least a golden winter.
Four British actors, each of them a household name across the world, are delighting theatre audiences in leading roles in four plays that are not obvious crowd pleasers: Coriolanus, Richard II, Henry V and a new musical version of the Bret Easton Ellis novel American Psycho. The popularity of the leading men, two from the world of film, Jude Law and Tom Hiddleston, »

After unveiling a star-studded poster yesterday, a new trailer for Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel has arrived online, which serves the dual purpose of introducing the many characters, as well as showing off the film's hugely impressive ensemble cast.
Among the name set to appear in the film are Ralph Fiennes, F. Murray Abraham, Mathieu Amalric, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Harvey Keitel, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Ed Norton, Saoirse Ronan, Jason Schwartzman, Lea Seydoux, Tilda Swinton, Tom Wilkinson, Luke Wilson and newcomer Tony Revolori.
"The Grand Budapest Hotel tells of a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars and his friendship with a young employee who becomes his trusted protégé. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting, the battle for an enormous family fortune and the slow and then sudden upheavals that transformed Europe during the first half of the 20th century. »

Kill Your Darlings made a splash at Sundance for first-time director John Krokidas, and not just because it starred Daniel Radcliffe as a budding collegiate writer named Allen Ginsberg. It presented a stylish, yet un-romanticized vision of Columbia University in the ’40s, a handful of recognizable stars as young literary icons (including Jack Huston as Jack Kerouac and Ben Foster as William S. Burroughs), and a largely unknown story of the murder that brought the Beat Generation together. It’s also a distinctly gay narrative during an awards season that has left us largely bereft of Lgbt characters, with the exception of Dallas Buyers Club and Blue is the Warmest Color. Kill Your Darlings is historical in scope but modern in its depiction of intellectual gay men and their gorgeous muse Lucien Carr (Dane DeHaan in a breakout role).
We caught up with Krokidas to discuss the film, how he »

After yesterday’s new poster for Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel offered images of the various oddball characters in the film (see it lower down the page), here comes a brand new trailer that does something similar using footage. And it’s as quirky as you could possibly wish. The Grand Budapest Hotel’s story revolves around Ralph Fiennes’ Gustave H, hotel manager and serial guest lover. His travails appear to begin when a deceased client of a certain age (Tilda Swinton) turns up dead in the hotel and leaves him a valuable painting in her will - much to the distress of Adrien Brody’s Dmitri.There’s mystery, crime, danger, laughter and, of course, a whole lot of weirdness to be found lurking within, all swirling around a none-more-Andersonian cast including Willem Dafoe, Edward Norton, Owen Wilson, Jeff Goldblum, Jason Schwartzman, Saoirse Ronan, F. Murray Abraham, »
Focusing on a huge pink hotel, the theft of a priceless painting and an inheritance waiting to be claimed, as with many Anderson productions The Grand Budapest Hotel is home to a massive cast. Starring Bill Murray, Willem Dafoe, Adrien Brody, Jude Law, Ralph Fiennes, Harvey Keitel, Edward Norton, Jason Schwartzman, Saoirse Ronan, Jeff Goldblum, Owen Wilson, Mathieu Amalric, F. Murray Abraham and Lea Seydoux, this is going to be one of the highlights of 2014!
The Grand Budapest Hotel will open from 7th March 2014. Can’t wait until then? Check out this motion poster, »

There’s really no mistaking a Wes Anderson film for a film by any other director, and vice versa. Many have tried to imitate his charmingly retro style and/or quirky characters, but none have really succeeded. So, when you see the newest trailer for Anderson’s newest film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, you’ll quickly have a pretty good idea of what you’re in for.
Whether or not it appeals to you depends on how much you appreciate Anderson’s style, which has become more and more ossified with every movie he has made. He is a director who knows what he likes, and he doesn’t deviate very far from his very specific aesthetic. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it’s not everyone’s cup of tea.
If it is your cup of tea, though, The Grand Budapest hotel looks every bit as marvelous as Anderson’s previous works, »
