Review: The Dead Don't Die

Jim Jarmusch has had a long career of making use of dry wit and observation. In the '80s his debut feature Stranger Than Paradise was an indie darling for its deconstructive technique (it broke the line!) and laconic humor. His career since...

Deep Analysis: Luca Guadagnino's Suspiria Remake (Part Two)

Welcome back to the second and final part of this in-depth look at Luca Guadagnino’s homage/remake of Suspiria. It was one of the most divisive horror movies of 2018, and while I admire the film, I’m still not sure if I necessar...

Review: Suspiria

Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria is going to piss off so many people. Fans of Dario Argento’s 1977 original will be enraged by the changes. Fans of Guadagnino’s Call Me By Your Name will be appalled by how brutal, gruesome, and ...

Review: Snowpiercer

SNL's Wes Anderson parody is pure brilliance

The only thing wrong with this brilliant Wes Anderson parody is its lack of Bill Murray. Other than that, it looks exactly like an Anderson film. The music is perfect, the shots are perfect, Edward Norton's Owen Wilson is perfect...ahhhh, ...

NYFF Review: Only Lovers Left Alive

On its surface, a vampire film is the last thing I'd expect out of Jim Jarmusch. Then again, the same can be said about a hitman movie (Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai, The Limits of Control) and a western (Dead Man). And sure enough, the...

Bong Joon-Ho's Snowpiercer may not be cut for Weinstein

Not too long ago we reported that Bong Joon-Ho's Snowpiercer would be getting cut by 20 minutes for US release because The Weinstein Company thinks flyover country is full of slackjawed dummies with short attention spans. It looks like the ...

Jim Jarmusch on his vampire movie Only Lovers Left Alive

I'm a fan of Jim Jarmusch's movies. He has a weird way of turning moments of boredom into something complicated and interesting, as seen in Stranger Than Paradise, Down by Law, Night on Earth, and Mystery Train. He's also capable of the une...

Details on Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel

Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom was our pick for the best comedy of 2012. Anderson's latest film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, is another period piece and it may lead to back-to-back Golden Pterodactyls for best comedy. Fox Searchlight has pic...

Flix for Short: The Stars (Are Out Tonight)

David Bowie just put out a music video for "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)," the second single from his forthcoming album The Next Day. Whereas the previous single, "Where Are We Now?", was melancholic and a touch wistful before its hopeful c...

Big ensemble cast for Wes Anderson's Grand Budapest Hotel

The cast for Wes Anderson's new film is set, and it's one hell of an ensemble. (Johnny Depp is not involved with the film, by the way, contrary to our report a few months ago. Ditto Angela Lansbury.) The Grand Budapest Hotel will feature pr...

Tilda Swinton & John Hurt join Jarmusch's vampire movie

Jim Jarmusch may be the last person I'd expect to do a vampire movie. Then again, he was also the last person I'd expect to do hitman movies (Ghost Dog, The Limits of Control) or to go fishing for sharks. (If you like oddball comedy and hav...

We Need to Talk About Kevin posters have classic style

Our review of We Need to Talk About Kevin shows that what the movie may fail at being an art film talking about intrinsic evilness, it makes up for in being a relatively enjoyable horror. These new posters seems to be embracing that by seem...

Trailer: Moonrise Kingdom

The first trailer for Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom has arrived, and it looks like another quirky little hoot. One of our most anticipated movies of 2012, the cast is about as colorful and packed as an Anderson tableau: Bill Murray, Bruc...

Review: We Need To Talk About Kevin

No-one ever told you parenting would be easy, an old adage suggests, but even fewer said it could literally be murder. Can a child be born evil, or is such an inclination solely a result of their upbringing and surroundings? Lynne Ramsey's ...
