    Cannes Virgin Diary 4: Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis," Reygadas' "Post Tenebras Lux"

    My trip is winding down to an end, and the festival has ended on such a high note for me. Last night, I tried once again to see Leos Carax's "Holy Motors," but the screening was cancelled. I cried a little, and then ate a Big Mac. But in spite of that disappointment, I've seen some excellent films.

    Cannes Review: 'Therese Desqueyroux' Starring Audrey Tautou Is A Banal Version Of 'Masterpiece Theater'

    "Therese Desqueyroux," the closing night selection for this year's main competition lineup at the Cannes Film Festival, is not the nuanced period drama it should be but rather a banal, pseudo-thoughtful and monotonous episode of "Masterpiece Theater." Co-adapted by director Claude Miller ("A Secret,...

But with the leisure of a two-and-a-half hour running time...

    Cannes Review: 'Mud' Starring Matthew McConaughey Is An Underwhelming Anti-Fairy Tale

    "Mud," American writer/director Jeff Nichols' underwhelming follow-up to the masterfully visceral "Take Shelter," is a shallow and contrived coming of age story. While both 'Shelter' and "Shotgun Stories," Nichols' promising debut feature, explore their respective characters' motives and emotions, "...

    Review: In 'OC87: The Obsessive Compulsive, Major Depression, Bipolar, Asperger's Movie,' Too Much Bud Gets A Little Boring

    "OC87: The Obsessive Compulsive, Major Depression, Bipolar, Asperger's Movie" is a completely unique documentary that depicts one man's struggle -- co-director Bud Clayman -- with his Asperger's Syndrome and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Yes, Bud's got the one-two punch of Asperger's and OCD, the s...

    Cannes Review Round-Up: David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis" with Robert Pattinson

    If anything, judging from Cannes critics, David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis" is a faithful adaptation of the Don DeLillo source material. The consensus is that Cronenberg keeps his fierce and trim style, despite striving to stay true to the novella.

    Bill Murray, Kids and Madras Pants: Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom"

    “I had to work with a bunch of scouts, kids. No money can make that right, can it?” asks Bill Murray, wearing ridiculous Madras pants as a 1965 Dad, in a delightful, droll little 3-minute behind-the-scenes look at Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom. The featurette is exactly what...

    Cannes Review: David Cronenberg's 'Cosmopolis' Is Both An Excellent Adaptation & A Rich, Complex Character Study

    "Cosmopolis," an adaptation of Don DeLillo’s typically provocative novel of the same name, is the first feature film since 1999's "eXistenZ" that filmmaker David Cronenberg has directed and scripted. This in part explains why "Cosmopolis" is such a triumph: it’s both an exceptional adaptation and a ...
