Paul Thomas Anderson Offers Ode to Passing of an Old God

0 Comments · Wednesday, September 19, 2012
Our first few moments in the presence of Freddie Quell (Joaquin Phoenix) capture the extraordinary power and the isolation of the character. What Paul Thomas Anderson, the director of The Master, and the mercurial Phoenix have created here is a portrait of an old god, maybe the last of his kind to walk the Earth.  

Where The Frames Take Me

0 Comments · Wednesday, September 12, 2012
This year marks my fourth sojourn to the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), and I have been able to add a few extra days to my usual long weekend mad dash through an impossibly overbooked itinerary that leaves me feeling like a camera-toting tourist snapping pictures of all the officially sanctioned hotspots.

Rashida Jones Co-writes, Stars in Tale of Life After Love

0 Comments · Wednesday, August 29, 2012
Best friends forever is a clichéd phrase that gets bandied about between people closely linked for a time, through a particular patch of life, but few of these relationships truly last. Only a precious few bond on the deepest levels and fewer still cross the gender divide.   

Final Frame: Remembering Tony Scott

1 Comment · Wednesday, August 22, 2012
Unlike the action junkies chopping up the battles to pile on more frames helter-skelter, Tony Scott would actually slow the moments down, to let us see the beauty of stillness before the clash. He gave us a chance to breathe and steady ourselves.  

Believe in the Oddity of this Wonderful Life

Sometimes a story taps into a primal human desire, a need so intrinsic that it makes belief come to life. Screenwriter (and director) Peter Hedges, working from a story conceived by Frank Zappa’s son, Ahmet, dares to make audiences hope and believe in something so real with The Odd Life of Timothy Green.

For Ruby Sparks, Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (Little Miss Sunshine) tag team with first-time screenwriter and co-star Zoe Kazan to tell the incredible story of Calvin Weir-Fields (Paul Dano), a young author who finds himself struggling to complete the follow-up to the debut novel that made him one of the brightest literary stars of the late 20th century.

0 Comments · Tuesday, July 10, 2012
Take This Waltz focuses on Margot (Michelle Williams), a freelance writer married to a cookbook author (Seth Rogen) but who develops feelings for a neighbor (Luke Kirby), an artist and rickshaw driver. Waltz feels like an avant-garde performance devoted to women on the verge. What happens to women who long for more than life has given them but then encounter an opportunity to grab hold of something more?  

Ice Age: Continental Drift

0 Comments · Tuesday, July 10, 2012
Manny (Ray Romano), Diego (Denis Leary) and Sid (John Leguizamo) are on the road again — well, this is the Ice Age, so it’s really a pre-road time, but these three seem to be laying the pathway out with each new adventure — which means that they are edging closer and closer to drifting into the modern age.  

Madea's Witness Protection

0 Comments · Wednesday, June 27, 2012
Tyler Perry’s Madea has long been a rough shelter in the storm for an assortment of outcasts and miscreants in need of tough love, so in Witness Protection, she’s taking in a Wall Street investment banker (Eugene Levy) and his family who are on the lam from the mob.
