Tribeca Review: Blow the Man Down

Imagine, if you will, a sleepy little fishing town in Maine. Imagine seeing the ocean, calm and serene, with a few ships bobbing in the water like toy boats. Then we pan over to the dock where a stocky fisherman starts leading the other doc...

NYFF Review: The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

Like Hail, Caesar!, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs is a movie about movies. Hail, Caesar! took the tropes of the old-fashioned studio pictures and turned them into an interconnected backlot pastiche of cinematic styles. You had composites of ...

Review: Suburbicon

It's frustrating to watch someone or something you know that has the potential to be stellar falter under the stress of itself. You see it a lot in American television where they milk as much out of a series until it is nothing but a wit...

 
 

These Inside Llewyn Davis trading cards are kind of the best

The Coen brothers' Inside Llewyn Davis is one of the great, unsung movies of 2013. It's bitter, brilliant, and ignored, which is sort of like its title character, come to think of it. I often think of the movie fondly and sadly. Maybe one d...

Review: Hail, Caesar!

Joseph Kahn, director of Detention, the best film ever made, is an exceedingly well respected music video director. Most recently, he’s known as the guy who makes all those amazing Taylor Swift music videos. Together, the two of them ...

Review: Bridge of Spies

Watching Bridge of Spies, I realized almost immediately the difference between a beautiful film and a handsome film. Steven Spielberg's latest movie is handsome. It's cleanly shot, polished, glossy, with impeccable acting in almost every sc...

Review: Inside Llewyn Davis

The trailers for Inside Llewyn Davis don't quite capture the feel of the film. If you watch them, there's a kind of satiny look about the imagery, something that to me denoted an air of nostalgia for New York in 1961. Yet the colors are des...

Trailer: Inside Llewyn Davis

A new trailer dropped today for Inside Llewyn Davis, the latest from the Coen Brothers. Like the red band trailer from a while back, this trailer has a lot of deadpan humor and dry delivery. I'm not quite sure what to make of these trailer...

Flix for Short: The Dude

You might have heard that Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski of The Big Lebowski was based on a real person. (Much like Walter Sobchak, who was based on director John Milius.) The dude behind The Dude is Jeff Dowd, and the short documentary above gi...

Lebowski cast reunion video

[Update: Well it happened, and it was amazing. Moderating an actual Q&A with the cast of The Big Lebowski proved nearly impossible for the guy charged with it. The actors could barely even hear each other, let alone the interviewer, wh...

Art show pays homage to the Coens and Tarantino

Whenever I read about some rad goings on around New York City, it feels like a massive tease. I still haven’t made my pilgrimage to The Little Lebowski in Greenwich Village, a store specializing in, well, you guessed it. There may or ...

True Grit breaks the $100 million barrier for Coen Brothers

The Coen Brothers have long been one of my favorite creative teams on Hollywood. I can't think of a film they've done that I haven't at least liked, if not adored. But despite all the great work they've done, their films' lifetime gross has...

Review: True Grit

Coen brothers movies can be hit or miss for some but the one thing they always are is memorable. It's worth reminding everyone up front that this is actually a remake of the 1969 version of True Grit that starred John Wayne, so it's hard fo...
