    NYFF DISPATCH | Ken Jacobs, George Kuchar and Digital 3-D Kick Off Views from the Avant Garde

    NYFF REVIEW | Long-Lost Sara Driver Debut "You Are Not I" Comes Home to New York Film Festival

    Not quite a short or a feature, Sara Driver's long-lost 1981 production "You Are Not I" exists on some alternate plane that renders the distinction irrelevant. It's more like a haunting cinematic journey that leads directly into its mentally disturbed protagonist's head. "You Are Not I" adapts the P...

    Real Steel—movie review

    From the billboards you might think thisis another Transformers movie—heaven help us—when in fact, Real Steel is a cross between Rocky and The Champ. It’s formulaic and unashamedly manipulative, but it’s played with sincerity…and it w...

The men known as the "West Memphis 3," imprisoned while teenagers for crimes they likely didn't commit, spent 18 years behind bars.

That meant 36-year-old Damien Echols evaded the death penalty; Jesse Misskelley and Jason Baldwin were released from their lif...
