'Sin City' Siren Eva Green on Her Sexy, Bloody Comeback
4 hours ago
Eva Green's year has been one for the history books, or from them anyway. In March, the French actress was seen in plate mail playing the vengeful Persian warrior Artemisia in the action hit 300: Rise of an Empire. Then, in late April, she popped up in Showtime's Penny Dreadful, recently renewed for a second season, where she traded in ancient duds for frocks and black lace as Vanessa Ives, a Victorian prone to demonic possession. In August, Green caps her run of titillating period pieces with the release »
Love Is Strange
5 hours ago
In a summer of movie romances, Love Is Strange is the one that cuts deepest. Without the usual bull and spackled-on sentiment, it hits you like a shot in the heart. Director Ira Sachs, who wrote the subtly nuanced script with Mauricio Zacharias, intuitively knows where attention must be paid.
George (Alfred Molina), a music teacher, and Ben (John Lithgow), an artist, have lived together in Manhattan for nearly 40 years. When state law finally allows them to marry, they do so happily among family and friends. But being legal gets »
Sin City: A Dame To Kill For
5 hours ago
The followup to 2005's eye-popping Sin City is neither the dazzler I hoped for nor the disaster I feared. But "meh" is hardly the reaction you expect from a movie in which Eva Green and Jessica Alba shake their ta-tas and Mickey Rourke and Josh Brolin send souls screaming into hell. And this time they do it in 3-D. Fighters and femme fatales are the staples of Frank Miller's just-famed graphic novels. And Robert Rodriquez was wise to ask Miller to join him again to direct. The movie looks »
The One I Love
6 hours ago
There's a twist right near the start of this stinging provocation of a comedy that makes reviewing The One I Love a land mine of potential spoilers. This much I'll tell you: Love and sex have gone out of the marriage of Sophie (Elisabeth Moss) and Ethan (Mark Duplass). Their verbal darts leave wounds. Their therapist (a wry, sly Ted Danson) sends them to a secluded retreat where they can relax, smoke weed and maybe get in touch with whatever pulled them together in the first place.
So far, so safe. »

Readers' Poll: The 10 Best Sylvester Stallone Movies
20 August 2014 6:32 AM, PDT
The Expendables 3 may have been a box office disappointment, but don't think that's going to slow down Sylvester Stallone. He's been seen as a has-been countless times during his career, only to bounce back bigger than ever. This is a man that willed six separate Rocky movies into existence, and he's currently plugging away at Rambo 5. He doesn't know the meaning of the word "over." We asked our readers to select their favorite Sly movies. Here are the results. »
'Love' Will Tear Us Apart: Ira Sachs on the Year's Best Romantic Drama
20 August 2014 6:00 AM, PDT
"I've always felt that all my work could be titled The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter," Ira Sachs says, a comment that anyone familiar with the 48-year-old filmmaker might consider an understatement. If you take a look through his two-decades-and-counting career, you might find that the miseries and mysteries of human attraction are a common thread. What links the interracial romance between a young Southerner and a Vietnamese hustler (1996's The Delta), a character study set in the Memphis music scene (2005's Forty Shades of Blue, which took home the »

The film is credited to Waters and the tour's fellow creative director, Sean Evans.
