It’s a charmingly inept action/drama that’s utterly uninterested in predictability or following the norms of narrative film-making. Characters come and go, main plot points are dropped randomly while others are picked up, and it was filmed over two decades....

    6 Filmmaking Tips From Documentary Pioneers Robert Drew and Richard Leacock

    Robert Drew‘s name is attached to a team of filmmakers who made revolutionary changes to documentary in the early 1960s. But today he’s probably the least-appreciated member of Drew Associates and the Direct Cinema movement after Albert Maysles, D.A. Pennebaker, and Ricky Leacock.

    The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Are Bad For New York City Tourism

    Last week, actress Karen Gillan (Guardians of the Galaxy) asked her Twitter followers, “Can anyone recommend a film that will persuade me to move to New York?” Most people answered with Woody Allen films, Meg Ryan romantic comedies and Ghostbusters.

    Game of Thrones Explained: ‘The Red Woman’ Has New Tricks, Raises New Questions

    One of the most surprising things to emerge from my ranking of every Game of Thrones episode to date was this notion that not every season premiere has been great. For much of its first four seasons, Game of Thrones has been a slow starter. The first few episode of every season has been spent checking in on the numerous...
