How 'Silver Linings Playbook' Director Reinvented Two Stars

The Huffington Post | Mike Ryan | Posted 11.28.2012 | Entertainment

"Silver Linings Playbook" is not necessarily a movie you'd expect from David O. Russell. It's a sweet film, and "sweet" is not the first word most peo...

Does 'On The Road' Film Have Same Flaws As The Book?

Tony Bartolone | Posted 01.23.2014 | Entertainment

On the Road starts off speeding, snapping the audience's heads back against their padded seats, and kidnapping them. Taking 'em to the 1940s, America. At some point each voyeur has to decide whether they are in or out.

The Master Is a Muddled Mess of a Movie

The acting is certainly good with the three lead actors being outstanding, but Anderson's script hamstrings the movie from beginning to end. Finally it all becomes tiresome and oblique and the audience leaves feeling completely frustrated.

The Master and the Slow Boat to China (With Spoilers)

While many want The Master to be an assault on what they see as a kooky and possibly dangerous cult, I'm not convinced that The Master is or has to be about more than its two main characters struggling and ultimately failing to make themselves whole.

To many Eastwood is a national treasure. Trouble With the Curve cements that status. Combined with Amy Adams this whispery voiced actor knocks this one out of the park.

Movie Review, The Master: Egotists and the Cultists Who Love Them

In its intelligent, chilly essence, Paul Thomas Anderson's film is an intense, eye-to-eye war between two different yet interdependent psyches.

'The Master': A Movie Review

Lloyd I. Sederer, MD | Posted 11.24.2012 | Entertainment
Lloyd I. Sederer, MD

This is not a feel-good movie. But it is a master class in acting. It is a haunting fictional story that is all too true. As with great writing, it takes us into the labyrinth of human nature, rife with emotional hunger, desperation and rage.

ReThink Review: The Master -- It's Amazing, But Barely About Scientology

Jonathan Kim | Posted 11.18.2012 | Entertainment
Jonathan Kim

A lot has been said about whether the Cause is code for Scientology. Anderson drew a lot of inspiration from L. Ron Hubbard and the origins of Scientology, but to say that The Master is about Scientology misses the point.

Movie Review: Trouble With the Curve

Marshall Fine | Posted 11.18.2012 | Entertainment
Marshall Fine

Think of Trouble with the Curve as the anti-Moneyball: a movie that dismisses Billy Bean and Bill James' data-centric approach to quantifying baseball talent, in favor of old-fashioned gut instinct.

The Master: Paul Thomas Anderson's Naturalist Fable and Francine

Regina Weinreich | Posted 11.15.2012 | Entertainment
Regina Weinreich

You can't take your eyes off The Master, neither Paul Thomas Anderson's new film nor Philip Seymour Hoffman in the role of Lancaster Dodd. Francine is tough material, but this tightly conceived near silent film is well worth seeing.

Will 'The Master' Command an Oscar For Joaquin Phoenix?

Liz Smith | Posted 11.14.2012 | Celebrity
Liz Smith

In Paul Thomas Anderson's latest film, "The Master" (his sixth), not only does he go out on a limb, but he allows two of our finest actors--Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman--to hang precariously from that limb with him.

Not Happily Ever After All - A Feminist Response to 'Into the Woods'

The Public Theater's revival of Into the Woods is a muddled and confusing show that seems to have gotten lost along the way to its goal, just like many of its characters.

The woods are dark and deep, and rife with loss, chance encounter, menace and mischief in the revival of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's musical Into the Woods, well staged amidst the foliage at Central Park's Delacorte Theater.

In the Public Theater's uneven revival of Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods, starring Amy Adams, there are some good moments and some not so good moments.

Regina Weinreich

I am pleased that the reports from Cannes about the On the Road, Walter Salles' film are mainly favorable, although I have taken note that some say there is no inner world for the characters, that the film has no discernable plot, that it is overlong.

We were fortunate enough to shoot The Muppets in LA. Our film took us all over LA, from Long Beach, where we shot the Rolls Royce coming out of the water, to the Disney and Universal lots, where we recreated the Muppet theater.
