    Edward Norton on 'Budapest,' 'Birdman' and final bows
    In "The Grand Budapest Hotel," Wes Anderson's candy-bright fable of decades in the life of the title European edifice, he's Inspector Henckels, a late-1930s police officer and a gentleman, a bright flash of civility before a dark era. The film received...
  • Monday Mash-Up -- Stevie Nicks ... Jessica Lange ... Joan Rivers ... 'Alice in Wonderland'

    "IT'S LIKE an old movie star. You're really creating an eyelid. It's also Greta Garbo makeup and Marlene Dietrich. That's why, with these kind of eyes, you can never do Botox. I did it once, and it was awful ... you look like some relative that nobody...
  • Watching the literary film contenders

    The Oscar race is so different from book prizes. After a book wins one major prize -- say, the Pulitzer -- it's less likely to wind up as a contender for the National Book Award. Literary judges like to spread the love around. Movies are different. Each...
  • Review: 'The Homesman'

    Review: 'The Homesman'
    In its setting and in its blunt, unfussy style, director, co-writer and star Tommy Lee Jones' "The Homesman" is a film out of time. It takes place in 1855, the year after the creation of the Nebraska Territory. Like Jones' previous theatrical feature, the...

    Tommy Lee Jones, Hilary Swank admire the feminism in 'Homesman' western
    To which part of calling "The Homesman" a "feminist western" would Tommy Lee Jones, its director, co-writer, co-producer and costar, be more likely to object? "It's not very meaningful," says Jones wearily. "I know what a western is; it's a movie that's...

    'The Homesman' gets lost on the way
    **1/2 (out of four) Food and fun are scarce in “The Homesman.” Yet unlike Christopher Nolan’s massively disappointing “Interstellar,” “Homesman” director/co-writer Tommy Lee Jones lends some urgency and sense...
  • Reel Critics: A 'Horrible' use of Oscar winners

    "Horrible Bosses 2" is not about bosses, office work or 9 to 5 jobs. It's about a Marx Brothers-style farce with no grounding in reality. Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day reprise the characters from the original film. They bring likable...
