Faith No More Back With Vigor

Rock band Faith No More has never been known for its subtlety. Even in quiet, almost introspective moments, there's a layer of darkness and angst that gives way to a razor sharp, if not borderline perverse, sense of humor. So when the...Show More Summary

Live from the Tribeca Film Festival: Wrapping up

Drea de Matteo Joins Cruelty Free International Campaign to end Cosmetics Testing on Animals

If you are anything like me, you were a fan of The Sopranos and you probably remember the scene leading up to the demise of Adriana La Cerva, excellently played by Drea de Matteo, as one of the most nail-biting, heart-wrenching of the...Show More Summary

Why We Need to Keep the Activism of New Queer Cinema Alive

Gay activism comes in many guises, but we often don't stop to appreciate the role cinema has played in championing queer lives. Films generally reflect the sociocultural milieu of the time in which they are made, but can also think forward...Show More Summary

Movie Review: The Water Diviner... Russell Crowe Should Crow About

A tender, soulful Russell Crowe makes The Water Diviner work. Crowe as a farmer who has lost his wife and three sons gives a masterful performance.

Here's How Influencer Marketing Propels Big Studio Movies

Entertainment marketing has typically relied on the 'spray and pray' model of marketing and advertising in the past. The studio makes a big movie, they allocate a ton of money for P&A (prints and advertising) and then they sit back and pray they make their numbers on opening day. Those days are gone.

On Playwriting and Penis Transplants

The other day, while reading a newspaper article, I was reminded of one of those well-travelled clichés that offer conventional, slice-of-life wisdom, such as, "What goes around comes around," or "There's nothing new under the sun."Show More Summary

Return to 'Paradiso'

Have you ever had your heart broken? Has a lover left you abandoned, adrift, forsaken? I was reminded of my own broken heart when I watched, for the second time and after many years, the 1988 Oscar-winning film Cinema Paradiso. The first time, I watched it as a moviegoer. Show More Summary

'The Americans' Recap: Paige What Are You Doing? Please Stop.

NOTE: Do not read on if you have not seen Season 3, Episode 13 of FX's The Americans, titled "March 8, 1983" And there we have it. I saw some of you Twitter whining about the season finale being boring or slow or not comprehensive enough. Show More Summary

Todd Rundgren: I Saw the Light

"Hello, it's me." Todd Rundgren can never escape that greeting and song title. Nor would he want to, I imagine. It's a signature song for him, one that was transcendent for American radio. Between that 1973 "Midnight Special" performance...Show More Summary

'Grey's Anatomy' Recap: Don't Go Derek!

Note: Do not read on if you have not seen Season 11, Episode 20 of ABC's Grey's Anatomy, titled "One Flight Down." Shonda is killing us. We have now waited two whole weeks to find out where Derek is. Apparently, he's not in a plane crash. Show More Summary

The Passion of Crowe: The Water Diviner Marks Russell Crowe's Directorial Debut

Russell Crowe may be the most misunderstood artist working today. The common perception of the hot-tempered Oscar winner "fightin' 'round the world" continues to unfairly overshadow the actor's impressive body of work (Gladiator, A Beautiful Mind, American Gangster, Robin Hood, Noah, the list goes on).

Doctor Zhivago's Sound

The musical based on that Russian classic Doctor Zhivago inevitably evokes comparisons with the Omar Shariff-Julie Christie, David Lean 1965 movie, from Boris Pasternak's 1957 novel. A Broadway show with name recognition, Doctor Zhivago has played in Australia and South Korea--in Korean--and was much loved. Show More Summary

New French Films Tackle Barbarism

It seems more than coincidental that two powerful French films opening Friday deal with anti-Semitism, albeit in radically different ways. 24 Days dramatizes the 2006 kidnapping of a young Jewish man in Paris; Because I Was a Painter is a documentary about art created by inmates of Nazi camps.

Movie Review: Ex Machina - Mechanical

Ex Machina is both tastily minimal and frustratingly simplistic.  Alex Garland's directing debut (he wrote 28 Days Later and Sunshine) is, in essence, a three-hander about three people in a house. OK, a high-tech mansion, but you get...Show More Summary
