Stream Nicholas Britell’s Beautiful Full Score for ‘If Beale Street Could Talk’

Barry Jenkins’ If Beale Street Could Talk won’t hit theaters for another month or so, but you can now let some of the film’s beauty seep in thanks to the release of the official score. Reteaming after Moonlight, Nicholas Britell’s compositions for the James Baldwin adaptation make for a joyous celebration of the boundless love found at […]


‘Jupiter Ascending’ Takes Flight as New Ballet Production

With its gloriously over-the-top dialogue and otherworldly visuals, the Wachowskis’ Jupiter Ascending certainly earned its moniker of “space opera.” What looks to be the filmmaking duo’s final feature (at least for the time being) is getting a second life on the stage, but rather than in opera form, it’s been adapted as a new ballet. […]


Watch: Jason Mantzoukas on The Rolling Stones vs. The Beatles in Exclusive Clip from ‘The Long Dumb Road’

The manic, anarchic charm of Jason Mantzoukas is on full display in The Long Dumb Road, Hannah Fidell’s latest feature, which follows his character alongside Tony Revolori’s Nat on a road trip to Los Angeles. While the comedian is usually utilized for quick bursts of energy in various comedies, Fidell gives him a genuine arc and proves […]


David Lowery to Direct Former Terrence Malick Project ‘Green Knight’

There are few up-and-coming American directors that have a better handle on tone and mood than David Lowery, who has shown his range in Pete’s Dragon, A Ghost Story, Old Man & and the Gun, and Ain’t Them Bodies Saints. With his lattermost break-out earning comparisons to Terrence Malick, it’s only fitting that for his […]


David Lynch Possibly Plots Next Film as Angelo Badalamenti Collaboration ‘Thought Gang’ Arrives

It’s entirely possible we’ll never get another long-form moving-image work from David Lynch–though, if you’ll excuse my language, who the fuck knows; more on that in a second–but the artist has kept busy since Laura Palmer screamed all illumination from reality. The last few months alone brought the publication his excellent, thoroughly Lynchian memoir Room to Dream, and it was last week […]


Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus Will Lead Nat Faxon and Jim Rash’s ‘Force Majeure’ Remake

While Ruben Östlund reached newfound acclaim thanks to a Palme d’Or win for The Square, it was his prior film, Force Majeure, in which he landed on our radars. A rigorously assured exploration of the responsibility found in marriage, it’s deeply funny and smartly observed, with performances that rely on acute gestures and movements to convey things some […]


Kelly Reichardt Sets ‘Certain Women’ Follow-Up with ‘First Cow’

Following up what is perhaps the best film in a stellar career, we thought Kelly Reichardt would move from Certain Women to an adaptation of Patrick DeWitt’s black comedy Undermajordomo Minor, announced a few years back. The director has, instead, gone another route, and the first details on the project have come to light just as […]


Andrew Garfield & More Go ‘Mainstream’ for Gia Coppola’s ‘Palo Alto’ Follow-Up

Proving the Coppola family’s talents continue to be boundless, Gia Coppola’s Palo Alto was a strong directorial debut with a genuine sense of both place and the ennui that comes with coming of age. After wondering what she will jump to next for the last five years, we finally have an answer. Deadline reports that […]


One-Night-Only Screenings of Lars von Trier’s ‘The House That Jack Built’ Director’s Cut Announced

As expected when it comes to a serial killer movie from Lars von Trier, The House That Jack Built divided Cannes audiences, though we were firmly on the positive side. “Whether there’s any worth to be found in The House That Jack Built will depend on the viewer’s interest in delving deep into von Trier’s tortured psyche,” said […]


Kate Hudson, Craig Robinson, and Zac Efron Join Ana Lily Amirpour’s ‘Blood Moon’

Following her ethereal, gorgeous debut film A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, Ana Lily Amirpour divided audiences with The Bad Batch, a post-apocalyptic tale that still carried her singular vision. The director is now back with her third film, which has amassed another impressive cast. Kate Hudson, Craig Robinson, and Zac Efron will lead […]
