Canadian director Guy Maddin, who draws upon the aesthetics and melodramatic richness of early silent cinema for his expressionistic works, is presenting his la...

Friday, December 1-----The Gotham Awards, held in a former luxury cruise line docking pier on the Hudson River, has become New York's biggest film party.

The day starts with a 9 AM press screening of Scorcese's "The Departed" in the big hall. This is followed by a meeting with the press with Scorcese and Di Caprio up on the stage, accompanie...

Chaos, sex addiction and Ned Beatty in person at Minneapolis

user

One such instance, Werner Herzog's latest, "The Wild Blue Yonder" -- an astronaut fantasy in a post-Armageddon world -- arrived at the Oak Street theater projection booth cut into unmarked segments, so th...
