Steve Coogan

Are You Talkin' to Me?

Whether mimicking famous celebrities or cartoon characters, a talent for voices demonstrates the added value of an actor's sharp ear combined with an uncanny ability to improvise on a moment's notice.

After Philip Seymour Hoffman's death in February, Showtime stayed mum on the status of its comedy, "Happyish," in which Hoffman was slated to star. On...

Week in Film: Captain America 2, Dom Hemingway and More

Marshall Fine | Posted 06.01.2014 | Entertainment

Maybe it's because the studio movies at this time of year are so universally dreadful, but I find myself drawn to the smaller films that bite and snarl and generally have bad manners: Bad Words, The Raid 2 and, this week, Dom Hemingway.

The Long-Shot Nominees

Jon Eig

If you're an awards junkie, then you already know the likely Oscar nominees. Just to be contrary, I thought I'd nominate people and films who, like boss Jim Gettys, have something less than a chance. These are the films and performances of 2013 that should be considered, but won't be.

Dench and Coogan in Philomena: Not Too Sappy, Not Too Harsh

Caryn James | Posted 01.24.2014 | Entertainment
Caryn James

If you're going to tell a heart-warming story about a sweet, wronged little old lady, it helps -- even if she is played by Judi Dench -- to have a hard-nosed, mordantly witty, cynical journalist along to offset the sugar quotient. That is the brilliant strategy behind the warm, lovely Philomena.

Movie Review: Philomena

Marshall Fine | Posted 01.23.2014 | Entertainment
Marshall Fine

Her name is Philomena Lee and, as played by Judi Dench in what should be an Oscar-nominated performance, she's a deceptively ordinary older woman with a mission.

Hey, MPAA: Give Philomena a PG-13

Marshall Fine | Posted 01.23.2014 | Entertainment
Marshall Fine

It's a charming and moving little film, starring Dame Judi Dench and Steve Coogan. It tells the true story of an Irish woman who, as a teen, became pregnant and was forced into the Magdalene Sisters' care.

The 51st New York Film Festival is in full swing with quite the lineup of films this particular year. Upcoming still are the world premiers of Ben Stiller's The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Spike Jonze's Her. Though, here, we present a round up of what we've already seen, which includes much anticipated titles like Captain Phillips, the Coen brother's Inside Llewyn Davis, and Richard Curtis' About Time. So, yes, why don't we get on with it already and round them up in a handy capsule format, just for you...

At the Toronto Film Festival 2013 it's all about the biggies: studio blockbusters sit lined up like rockets on launching pads, positioned for awards season. Most prominent, perhaps, is Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity.

ReThink Review: What Maisie Knew -- Divorce Through a Child's Eyes

Jonathan Kim | Posted 07.21.2013 | Entertainment
Jonathan Kim

Divorce is common enough these days that people are familiar with what an ugly and painful process it can be, which probably explains why most people wouldn't rush to see a movie about it in their free time

Finding Out What Maisie Knew From the Adults Around Her

Marshall Fine | Posted 07.10.2013 | Entertainment

Onata Aprile is at the center of the film as Maisie, in an almost eerily natural, watchful performance. She always seems to be in the camera's focus, while the marital squabbles and romantic entanglements explode in the background.

How to Reboot a Classic

Helen Eisenbach | Posted 07.02.2013 | Arts
Helen Eisenbach

There's plenty of old-fashioned magic in the current Broadway production of Cinderella, which just nabbed nine Tony noms -- enough to make all the little girls in the audience sigh and swoon and stare enraptured, and their parents too.

Movie Review: What Maisie Knew

Marshall Fine | Posted 06.30.2013 | Entertainment
Marshall Fine

Adapted and extrapolated from Henry James' novel of the same name, What Maisie Knew is a film that puts the audience right in the title character's world -- and forces it to experience it the way she does.

Film Review, What Maisie Knew: Is the Kid All Right?

Erika Milvy | Posted 06.29.2013 | Entertainment

What does a six-year-old girl understand about the tumultuous life of grown-ups? The new film, What Maisie Knew, asks that question. The movie is a gut-churning domestic drama about a turbulent divorce and its collateral damage.

It's easy to mock the feelings it evokes, but that's a shallow reading of a much deeper film. Cloud Atlas is one of the best films I've seen this year and one of the most satisfying.
