‘I’ve Already Won.’ France’s Ladj Ly on Taking Les Miserables to the Oscars

There’s still a few days to go before Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles. Yet at least one Oscar nominee feels he has already won big. French director Ladj Ly, whose movie Les Misérables is one of five nominated for Best International Feature Film, says he’s astonished that his tale of racist police violence in Paris’s largely ethnic-minority banlieues, or suburbs, has found a global audience at all. “There is Paris, and there are the banlieues, and they are two worlds apart,” ...

(Infinity and Beyond  is a regular bi-weekly column documenting the 25-year filmography of Pixar Animation Studios, film by film. In today’s column, writer Josh Spiegel highlights Toy Story 2 .)

‘Wendy’ Review: ‘Peter Pan’ Gets Yet Another Update, This Time From the Director of ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’ [Sundance 2020]

Filmmakers just can’t stop returning to the world of Peter Pan. The story of the boy who never grew up holds sway over seemingly everyone, from Walt Disney, to Steven Spielberg, to Joe Wright, and beyond. The latest to tackle to the tale is Benh Zeitlin, director of Beasts of the Southern Wild. That 2012 indie was once acclaimed, but has since fallen out of favor. Zeitlin’s return, Wendy, is more of the same, for better or worse. If you enjoyed and still enjoy Beasts, you’ll probably find somet...

What We Learned About ‘Ford v Ferrari’ While Attending the 24 Hours at Daytona Race

Full disclosure: I know nothing about motor sports. I didn’t even know motor sports were called motor sports (it was just car racing in my head) before attending the 24 Hours of Daytona race this weekend. Granted, I knew a little bit about the event going in, but that’s only because I saw Ford v Ferrari , the 2019 Oscar-nominated Best Picture film that, among other things, has Christian Bale (playing historical driver Ken Miles) driving the race in 1966 while Matt Damon (playing car desig...
