I heard a lot of critics sniff at the inclusion of Richard Curtis' About Time in this year's New York Film Festival. The same cadre, no doubt, uses Curtis' Love, Actually as an example of what's wrong with romantic comedy.

It would be a damn pity if Blue is the Warmest Color is mainly celebrated for its extended graphic sex scene between two women. This masterful three-hour film is actually about a great deal more.

The Last of the Unjust and Its Auteur Are Self-Referential

Stanton Peele | Posted 01.23.2014 | Arts
Stanton Peele

Murmelstein's opponents in these events are uniformly presented as small-minded and devious, even as the film -- and Murmelstein -- affect a modest sense of irony and self-criticism. Yes, in his humility, Murmelstein manages to be quite self-aggrandizing.

Everything that Davis touches, from a friend's cat to the promise of a warm winter coat, goes right into the crapper.
