Roddy McDowall Gets Busted: An Exclusive Excerpt From A THOUSAND CUTS by Dennis Bartok and Jeff Joseph

I'm not the sort of person who is precious about my consumption of films. For me, the recent hubbub surrounding the death of 35mm projection has largely been white noise that confuses the method of consumption for quality. However, if...

Have Your Say: Is Arrow's FEMALE PRISONER SCORPION Boxset True Or Too Blue?

The Many Faces Of Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa

Have Your Say: Which Film Best Captures The Spirit Of the Current Election?

Pretty Packaging: Arrow's FEMALE PRISONER SCORPION Boxset Carries A Pretty Sting

Fantasia 2016 Interview: Adam Nimoy Remembers Leonard in FOR THE LOVE OF SPOCK

The Many Faces Of Vincent Cassel

This week, the newest Jason Bourne film premieres, titled simply Jason Bourne, once again starring Matt Damon as the former super-assassin gone rogue. A new adventure means new friends and enemies of course, and it's here that we see a...

Fantasia 2016: ScreenAnarchy Raises the Curtain on Top Picks

Every year, those who don't already live in Montreal descend upon the city for what I like to call "summer movie camp." Fantasia hosts three glorious weeks of kung-fu, kaiju, sci-fi, horror, awards, short programs, live events, and its awesome...

Preview: Japan Cuts 2016, As Dynamic as Ever

Japan Cuts, Japan Society's annual festival of contemporary Japanese cinema, turns 10 this year. What the value of a film festival is may seem easy to talk about in terms of age and program focus. It  can also be hard...

Have Your Say: My Prescient! My Prescient!

Through the technological wonders of the smartphone and Pokemon Go, half of the United States is currently chasing after imaginary creatures, or rather artificial and virtual ones. And I cannot help but wonder how incredibly spot-on Iso Mitsuo's 2007 anime...

The Many Faces Of Frank Langella

This week sees the limited North-American release of Matt Ross' Captain Fantastic, starring Viggo Mortensen. So this week, our quiz is... but no, we did Viggo already, heh. Further down the cast-list we see Frank Langella though, so guess what?...

Have Your Say: What Is Your Favorite Nicolas Winding Refn Film?

Last week, Nicolas Winding Refn's The Neon Demon went into limited release in North America, to mixed results and a disappointing box office. Film critics are divided as well, some calling it the year's best, others calling it a shallow...

Pretty Packaging: Arrow's BLOOD BATH Provides A Pool Of Different Versions

When distributor Arrow announced their release of a title called Blood Bath, I assumed it would be another generic eighties'-slasher-with-its-own-peculiar-fans-who-consider-it-a-classic-though-I-have-never-heard-of-it. Looking a bit closer though, this turned out to be something much, much weirder, and Arrow's approach towards this release...

The Many Faces of Jeff Goldblum

This week sees Independence Day: Resurgence appear all over the world, and as fun as it sounds to see an Independence Day film in a 3D Imax, reports haven't exactly been favorable. Check Pierce Conran's review for example, which is......

Preview: New York Asian Film Festival Celebrates 15 Gonzo Years
