First Gorgeous Trailer For ‘Song of the Sea,’ From the Director of ‘The Secret of Kells’

Five years ago, Ireland’s Tomm Moore delivered the acclaimed animation The Secret of Kells, which went on to be amongst superb company at the Academy Awards, nominated alongside Fantastic Mr. Fox, Coraline, and the eventual winner, Pixar’s Up. As is usually the case with animation, it’s taken some time for him and his team at […]

[Review] The Grand Seduction

Newfoundland provides the stunning and charmingly quirky backdrop for Don McKellar’s The Grand Seduction, an old-fashioned ode to small-town working class values that moonlights as a screwball comedy. McKellar, whose softly melancholic Last Night remains one of the 90’s best indie surprises, does indeed bring a seductive and beguiling touch to the film’s irascible sense […]

The 2014 New York Asian Film Festival is Go!

Any fan of Asian cinema who lives anywhere near New York City probably already knows about the annual event that brings some of the biggest, best and often weirdest movies from all across Asia to packed houses of enthusiastic fans as the New York Asian Film Festival (NYAFF) has grown from a small cult following that would attend the festival at the Anthology Film Archives to a major event held in partnership with the Film Society of Lincoln Center and the Japan Society’s annual Japan Cuts.

This year’s festival runs from June 27 to July 14 with 60 feature films kicking off with the international premiere of Alan Mak and Felix Chong’s crime thriller Overheard 3 and including a number of North American and New York premieres. Manshin: Ten Thousand Spirits, the documentary about Korean shaman Kim Keum-hwa by Park Chan-wook’s brother Park Chan-kyong will close the festival, while Umin Boya’s Taiwanese baseball movie Kano will be the festival’s centerpiece.

UPDATED: Remember those reports about Adam McKay taking over the reigns of Marvel’s Ant-Man reuniting with his Anchorman co-star Paul Rudd and attempting to break out of the broad comic niche of his past films? Yeah, that isn’t happening. As this very fluid situation rolls on, THR now reports that McKay has removed his name from the Ant-Man conversation, and that the decision was his, alone.

[Review] Words and Pictures

Two essential elements spring to the forefront of Fred Schepisi’s new romantic comedy, but they aren’t the titular Words and Pictures of the title. In fact, it’s the always luminescent Juliette Binoche and dourly handsome Clive Owen that justify the existence of this slight dramatic patchwork, although the movie keeps forgetting to move aside and […]

Adam McKay Won’t Replace Edgar Wright On Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’

Update: McKay has himself ended negotiations, putting Marvel back into search mode. It was just over a week ago that we got the disappointing news that Edgar Wright‘s long-in-development Marvel project Ant-Man would not be directed by… Edgar Wright. Clashing with a homogenized new script Marvel forced upon him (shocker!), the helmer walked (along with […]

[Review] The Big Ask

At the risk of sounding like a critic full of zingers, The Big Ask requires just that of the audience: a suspension of disbelief. The problem is we’ve seen this all before and then some; to call this trite would be an understatement. In fact, it embraces tropes commonly seen in this genre of contained, […]
