    Cronenberg's "A Dangerous Method" Splits Critics In Venice

    David Cronenberg has been a polarizing director since his days as an artfully bizarre Canadian B-movie director, and his latest work "A Dangerous Method" is proving that he has no interest in winning over his most skeptical critics. The film, which premiered today at Venice, will no doubt leave fest...

    Roman Polanski's "Carnage" Goes Over Well in Venice

    Roman Polanski's latest film "Carnage," adapted from playwright Yasmina Reza's masterwork, made its premiere in Venice this morning.

    Madonna's "W.E." Gets Slammed at its Venice Film Festival Debut

    When Madonna arrived in Venice today for the premiere of "W.E.," her second feature as director, to a media frenzy, she was surely hoping the film would have a better reception than "Filth and Wisdom," her critically challenged debut.

    Venice Reviews of Carnage Have Jodie Foster Coming Out On Top of Polanski's Actors Showcase

    Reviews have landed for Roman Polanski's Carnage, playing at the Venice Film Festival. Here's our report on Day Two (including W.E. and Carnage reviews). Polanski's film is an adaptation of Yasmena Reza's popular French play, God of Carnage, which most recently played at Los Angeles' Ahmanson theater with Jeff Daniels, Hope Davis, James Gandolfini and Marcia Gay Harden. That's a stellar cast to top. The difference here is that Polanski's equally impressive cast of Kate Winslet, Christoph Waltz, Jodie Foster and John C. Reilly shot the play on film (though it's not necessarily very cinematic), and were stuck ...

    Sometimes a film seems to have everything going for it and still comes up short; such is the case with The Debt. Its credentials are impeccable: a fine cast headed by Helen Mirren, Tom Wilkinson, and Jessica Chastain, just for starters, directed by John Madden, and written by three talente...

    Higher Ground—movie review

    How stimulating, and utterly refreshing, it is to see a movie with a distinctly female voice that deals with faith, and how one woman grapples with it, through good times and bad, throughout the course of her life. That Vera Farmiga gives an honest, empathetic performance should come as no surprise;...

    Talking with Eli Craig, Director of Our VOD Pick of the Week: "Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil"

    Eli Craig's blood-soaked feature directorial debut, "Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil," premiered at Sundance 2010. It's a real comedy-horror hybrid, which may explain why it took a while to get a release. However, its good buzz is well deserved and cult status could follow if it finds its audience on VOD (wh...
