    Review: 'Two Lovers'
    Set during a gray Brighton Beach winter, "Two Lovers" begins with the solid shape of Joaquin Phoenix lumbering down a pier, a bag of dry cleaning slung over his shoulder. We don't know who he is or anything about him, really, but for the heavy resignation...

    Josh Freese's extreme marketing for 'Since 1972'

  • Andy Warhol's screen-test factory

    Andy Warhol's screen-test factory
    Master conceptualist and founding father of modern celebrity culture, Andy Warhol was also, for a spell in the 1960s, the most prolific filmmaker in America. From 1963, when he acquired his first camera, to 1968, when he was shot and nearly killed by the...

    Herbie Hancock hits 70 on a high note
    When journalists ask Herbie Hancock which musicians he listens to, he thinks that they're expecting him to say Oscar Peterson and Chick Corea -- that is, virtuoso jazz pianists like himself. "I do listen to those musicians," Hancock said recently,...
