He then attended military school in New Mexico and later, the University of Texas in Austin. There he met aspiring filmmaker Wes Anderson, and the rest is history. Since breaking through with his role in Bottle Rocket, Wilson quickly became one the most popular comedic actors in Hollywood. He never got too big to work with his original collaborator, however, and the two will team up once again in The Grand Budapest Hotel, »

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Review: "Charlie's Mom Gets Cancer" (Episode 8.06)

16 November 2012 12:00 PM, PST

Season eight of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia has been a fascinating experiment for Glenn Howerton, Charlie Day and Rob McElhenney. The creative trio largely responsible for the show’s path have tooled around with the normal It’s Always Sunny formula and have turned in some of the most self-referential and self-aware episodes of television that makes the show more along the lines of Community and Arrested Development than Seinfeld, which it has been compared to for eight seasons. This eighth season has gone into the depths of the show, making callbacks to as far back as the first season. It’s an experiment that so far has worked pretty well, and even when it doesn’t, it’s compelling to watch. »

Paradise Lost Trilogy

15 November 2012 8:16 AM, PST

In 1993, the bodies of three eight-year-old boys were discovered in a creek in West Memphis, Arkansas. They were naked and hogtied, and had possibly been sexually mutilated before being murdered. It’s hard to believe that a situation could get any worse from there, but it did. Three teenage boys were put on trial for the crime. None of them had anything to do with it. They might have been victims of the system, had their case not caught the attention of documentary filmmakers Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky. »

Starlet

14 November 2012 1:08 PM, PST

Though the plot of Starlet may sound formulaic—an aimless, young woman forms an unlikely friendship with a crotchety, elderly woman—the film is handled with a level of care and understatement that elevates it. Buoyed by strong performances, particularly from newcomer Dree Hemingway, Starlet nearly has as much charm as the cute, canine character after which it’s named. »

Price Check

14 November 2012 10:39 AM, PST

Price Check, a new film by writer-director Michael Walker, is being billed as a comedy about the “high price of a middle-class life.” It stars Eric Mabius (Ugly Betty) as Pete Cozy, a husband and father who works a 9-to-5 gig in the pricing department of a midsize supermarket chain. It’s not the most glamorous of jobs, but it’s almost enough to support his wife, Sara (Annie Parisse), and their young son. Though the bills are piling up, Pete and Sara make due with what they have. (And don’t pick up the phone when the creditors call.) »

Catching Up With Shovels & Rope

14 November 2012 10:15 AM, PST

Finally, that hard work is starting to pay off, with fans cropping up from Charlotte to Seattle. Paste caught the husband and wife duo for a chat on Halloween, when they were taking a day off from their grueling tour schedule, to hear about their adventures on the road and what’s next for the band.

In Their Skin

14 November 2012 10:10 AM, PST

Take heed, first-time screenwriters and directors of thriller/horror movies: If your normal, human characters are not behaving like normal human beings would, you might as well let go of any notion your movie is “about” something. Let it go. Make that B-movie or straight-to-home video slasher, slap Alan Smithee on the credit reel and move on. Or I guess you could make In Their Skin. »

Jack Nicholson in Talks to Join Robert Downey Jr. in The Judge

A Royal Affair

13 November 2012 2:22 PM, PST

If any royal affair deserves cinematic treatment, it’s this one. Fraught with illicit romance and political intrigue, the 18th-century love triangle among British Princess Caroline Mathilde (Alicia Vikander), Danish King Christian VII (Mikkel Boe Folsgaard) and his trusted physician and advisor Johann Friedrich Struensee (Mads Mikkelsen) is inextricably intertwined with the radical and short-lived Enlightenment reforms instituted during their reign. Lush with period detail and throbbing with lusty melodrama, director-cowriter Nikolaj Arcel’s A Royal Affair finds complexity and nuance in each of its main characters, painting none as the hero, none as the victim. »
