Watch: 3-Minute Beginner’s Guide To ’70s Italian Giallo

4 hours ago

Any fan of cheap paperbacks or blood-curdling cinema has heard of giallo, a term derived from the Italian word for yellow — the color of the cheap, mystery novels most of the genre is based on. Authors like Ellery Queen, Raymond Chandler, and Agatha Christie were translated into Italian and sold through Il Giallo Mondadori, […]

Epix Orders TV Series Based On ‘Get Shorty’

4 hours ago

One of the best Elmore Leonard adaptations ever, and one of the best films of 1995, “Get Shorty” captured the author’s attitude and spirit on the page and brought to life on the big screen without a missing a beat. And it was certainly like catching lightning in a bottle, because everything “Get Shorty” did […]

Review: ‘The Ones Below’ A Worthy Attempt At ‘Rosemary’s Baby’-Esque Thrills

5 hours ago

Perhaps aware that the comparisons to “Rosemary’s Baby” will arrive from the start, playwright and theatre director David Farr, making his feature film debut, acknowledges the allusions to Roman Polanski’s picture from the first frames. Our first look of Clémence Poésy in the film bears a similar fragility to Mia Farrow, and the score by […]

Watch: Massive 11-Minute Preview For TNT’s ‘Animal Kingdom’

5 hours ago

While we had mixed feelings about the first episode of TNT‘s “Animal Kingdom” when we saw it at the Tribeca Film Festival, the series based on David Michod‘s acclaimed Australian crime film still holds a potent allure. With the story relocated to the sweaty environs of California, and with Ellen Barkin sinking her teeth into the […]

Watch: Explore The City Symphony Of Terrence Malick’s ‘Knight of Cups’ In This Video Essay

6 hours ago

In mess and madness, there is often beauty and genius. These are the words editor Conor Bateman uses to describe “Knights of Cups,” Terrence Malick’s latest film — a movie that he may not love but definitely appreciates. Perhaps more polarizing than his last film, 2013’s equally-mixed “To the Wonder,” it’s safe to say the […]

6 hours ago

While the buzz is still being heard from the Cannes Film Festival, it can be easy to forget we’re nearing the midway point of the year, and that a lot has already happened in the cinematic world. It might seem like a lifetime ago, but just three months back, all eyes were on the Berlin […]

Exclusive: Beethoven Beats Elvis In Clip From ‘Art Bastard’

6 hours ago

In the ’60s, the art world took a decidely pop shift when Andy Warhol emerged and turned the contemporary scene on its head. But there was another artistic voice in New York City that resisted the push toward the shiny and material — Robert Cenedella. And the upcoming documentary “Art Bastard” details the life of the […]

Netflix’s Ted Sarandos Says Service Is Not “Anti-Theater,” Filling Gap Left Open By Major Studios

7 hours ago

If there was one narrative that gained steam this month, it was that Amazon was the savior of auteurs and the theatrical experience (underscored by Cannes Film Festival honcho Thierry Fremaux‘s praise for the company), and that Netflix was more concerned with making plays that would suit their global audience. Certainly, at a glance, that seems […]

Watch: Nicholas Hoult Drives For Love In New Trailer For ‘Collide’ With Felicity Jones

8 hours ago

We’ve seen a handful of international trailers already for “Collide,” and to be honest, they haven’t been that impressive. But now comes the U.S. promo for the action flick, that adds more story and romance to what looks like, at best, a B-movie distraction. Read More: Review: ‘Welcome To The Punch’ Is A Stylish & […]

The 25 Best Superhero Movies Of All Time

8 hours ago

As the arrival of “X-Men: Apocalypse”(read our review) this week reminds us, superheroes are still the dominant story in the blockbuster world. Sure, “Jurassic World” and “Furious 7” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” might have outgrossed any superhero film last year, but if anyone thought that meant that the genre was on the way […]

Watch: New Trailer For Alex Gibney’s Cyberwar Documentary ‘Zero Days’

8 hours ago

“Going Clear: Scientology and the Process of Belief” is one of the more powerful documentaries on the subject of Scientology to see a major release in years, though we all know the film’s release didn’t lack for controversy. Alex Gibney, the film’s director, is a good documentarian in that he has a keen nose for […]

Watch: First Trailer For Rock ‘N Roll Dramedy ‘Len And Company’ With Rhys Ifans, Juno Temple, Kathryn Hahn & More

9 hours ago

We’ve seen plenty of washed up rock ‘n rollers grace the big screen, but Rhys Ifans does the role justice in the upcoming “Len And Company.” And while the rest of the movie around him isn’t quite up to scratch with the scruffy, don’t-give-a-shit attitude he gives his title character, you may be interested in […]

Watch: 7-Minute Supercut Of The BBC’s 100 Greatest American Films

10 hours ago

Last summer, BBC Culture compiled their list of the 100 Greatest American Films, voted on by critics around the world. The results featured the expected heavy hitters like Orson Welles‘ “Citizen Kane” and Alfred Hitchcock‘s “Vertigo” sitting comfortably near the top, more contemporary movies like “25th Hour,” “Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind” and even “Forrest […]

Unused Posters For ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice’ Are Even More Gritty, Angry

10 hours ago

If there has been one common criticism of Zack Snyder’s dour “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice” it’s that it could’ve used a bit of levity. But levity (and subtlety, for that matter) aren’t in the director’s playbook and what we got was the unrelenting punch-a-thon that, for better or worse, was promised by the […]

Meryl Streep Was Originally Going To Star In Pedro Almodóvar’s ‘Julieta’

11 hours ago

“I have a few different projects right now and one of them is in English — for the first time. It’s based on a story and it’s pretty far along actually, but I don’t want to talk about it too much right now because everyone will keep asking me about it,” Pedro Almodóvar teased way […]

Nicolas Winding Refn Producing Remake Of Giallo Favorite ‘What Have You Done To Solange?’

11 hours ago

Danish provocateur Nicolas Winding Refn seems intent on shocking his audience into submission with his upcoming tenth film “The Neon Demon.” It’s a horror film about fashion and beauty that’s already become divisive, even before its stateside release. During the film’s recent competition screening at Cannes, Refn used his platform in predictably unpredictable fashion: espousing […]

Cannes Review: Hirokazu Kore-eda’s Patchy But Lovably Bittersweet ‘After The Storm’

12 hours ago

The opening scene of Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda‘s “After The Storm” is among the greatest single scenes this master of the heartswellingly humane family drama has ever put together and all it is, is a grandmother and her grown-up daughter bickering and sparring over the preparation of a meal, and gently bitching about their ne’er-do-well […]

John Carpenter Teaming With Blumhouse For “Back To The Basics” New ‘Halloween’ Movie

12 hours ago

Nearly four decades and ten films on, it’s fairly remarkable what John Carpenter spawned with his low budget scare flick “Halloween.” Michael Myers has become nothing short of a horror icon, even if the films involving the character have varied wildly in quality (with most of them not very well regarded). However, it’s a brand that […]

Disney has been an unstoppable hit machine so far in 2016, and this summer two more movies will arrive, and we’ll see if they can continue their winning streak. This weekend, Johnny Depp and co. return with the sequel “Alice Through The Looking Glass,” and advance notices are not great. But then again, the reviews […]

Official Runtime, Cast List For Terrence Malick’s ‘Weightless’ Revealed

13 hours ago

Trying to track updates on a developing Terrence Malick movie always seems to fall somewhere between peering into a crystal ball and playing whack-a-mole. And that has been the case for “Weightless,” which first started production way back in 2011, and in the interim, has seen the filmmaker release “To The Wonder” and “Knight Of Cups,” […]
