1 hour ago

The Honorable Woman, SundanceTV This eight-episode limited series (episode four aired Aug. 21) arguably is the best show on television at the moment -- a riveting, complicated, timely espionage thriller about Israel, Palestine and the conflict's ties to the U.S. and Britain. Star Maggie Gyllenhaal is exceptional, and the writing and directing are top tier. It's kind of stunning that more people aren't talking about it. Now's your chance to change that. Available at sundance.tv Manhattan, Wgn America Once Wgn stepped into the scripted game with Salem, it didn't look back, and its second effort is surprisingly accomplished.

China Shuts Down Independent Film Festival in Beijing

2 hours ago

Chinese authorities have once again shut the 11th Beijing Independent Film Festival on its opening day, as the government keeps a tight leash on movies outside the state-approved system. The festival tries to offer a platform for independent cinema, but for many months now, China’s ruling Communist Party has been tightening the screws on dissenting views, including movies from outside the tightly monitored and heavily regulated Chinese film industry. Critic Li Xianting, one of the organizers of the Beijing Independent Film Festival, told The Associated Press that police searched his office and confiscated materials he had gathered over more

The Cars of 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' Drive Film's Hyperrealism

3 hours ago

The trailer for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For features private eye Dwight McCarthy, played by Josh Brolin, gripping the wheel of a speeding convertible as if it were his mortal enemy's neck. Sin City, released in 2005, and the sequel, directed by Robert Rodriguez, are based on the works of graphic novelist Frank Miller, who wrote and co-directed both films. Miller populates his novels with lovingly rendered classic cars, so unsurprisingly Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is crammed with gorgeous Detroit iron: a 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air, 1960 Corvette, 1959 Cadillac El Dorado, 1948 Tucker Torpedo,
