  • Jessica Lange to 'channel' Marlene Dietrich?

    "DARLING, the legs aren't so beautiful. It's what I do with them," said the fabled enchantress Marlene Dietrich. SPEAKING OF DIETRICH, her image will be revived again on, of all things, the Gothic TV series -- "American Horror Story." The upcoming...
  • Film Review: 'The Anomaly'

    It is indicative of both the vast ambition and limited imagination behind "The Anomaly," British one-man industry Noel Clarke's shoestring sci-fi effort, that its marketing has brazenly lifted its tagline from "The Matrix." "What is the anomaly?" ask...
  • Film Review: 'Set Fire to the Stars'

    Dylan Thomas knew the transcendent power of great art: "The world is never the same," he famously said, "once a good poem has been added to it." The world, it has to be said, does not look terribly different after viewing "Set Fire to the Stars," a...

    'Beyond the Edge,' about scaling Everest, fails to aim high

    It may begin with a character racing across a desert with a small plane in hot pursuit, but "Heatstroke" is not, to put it gently, the second coming of "North by Northwest." An underwhelming survival thriller about a fragile family unit beset by violent...
  • Reaching out, one interview at a time

    Reaching out, one interview at a time
    The couple on the bench in front of the basketball courts looked approachable enough — more ready for a conversation than the shirtless men who hustled behind them under the net. The woman busied herself with a Mitch Albom book, while her partner...
  • Variety's Scott Foundas Remembers Paul Mazursky: A Poetic Farceur of American Lives

    "Are you happy?" the woman asks her husband midway through Paul Mazursky's "Blume in Love" (1973), to which he replies, "I'm just not miserable." It is a flashback to earlier, relatively happier times in the busted-up marriage of the divorce lawyer...
  • Filmmaker and Ebert's widow discuss how a movie critic became 'beloved'

    He could be generous and petty, competitive and nurturing, absurdly public and ferociously private. And given access to a soap box, you could be sure Roger Ebert would scramble on top of it. Quite aside from being America's most famous film critic, Ebert...
  • Edinburgh Film Festival Debates Art and Commerce

    On Sept. 18, the people of Scotland vote to decide whether it should become an independent country. Where would a "yes" vote leave its film industry, and its leading movie event, the Edinburgh Intl. Film Festival? The festival will address the first...
  • Richard Linklater's 'Boyhood' Earns Praise From Stars at Special Screening
