Kathryn Hunter on Her Haunting and Scene-Stealing Witches Role in ‘The Tragedy of Macbeth’

Joel Coen’s “The Tragedy of Macbeth” is, among other things, visually gripping, a stark, haunting dreamscape that often seems to exist outside of time. While the film is carried by Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand, much has been made — justifiably — of Kathryn Hunter’s eerily limber witch: you can’t look away as she bends […]

A Love Song Review: Dale Dickey Grounds A Mesmerizing Tale Of Hushed Heartache [Sundance 2022]

We meet Faye (Dale Dickey) at the edge of the world, not literally but in all the ways that matter. She settles her camper by a lakeside, against a backdrop painted in broad, loving strokes. Her world is quiet but rarely still, so wondrously full of life that you may forget she's alone. The sweeping landscapes will hitch your breath, the streaming water may catch your eye, but it's Faye that will hold your attention as she settles into a mundane rhythm. This is how "A Love Song" starts: with qui...

The French Dispatch Review – Anderson… Finally

Wes Anderson films, love them or hate them, all but demand that you question why you’re watching them. Sure, spending an evening with Steve Zissou, or listening to a recounting of the glory days of a bellboy is entertaining, but what’s it all about? Why am I here? That curious nagging at the edge of your mind, forcing the audience to wonder what the point is, or if there is one, is perhaps the defining feature of Anderson’s yarns. The French Dispatch raises the bar on this experience by telli...

Trippingly On The Tongue: Denzel Washington, Leonardo DiCaprio, And Why Americanized Shakespeare Works

Though not especially common, we've seen it done before: an unassuming man steps up to the spotlight of a celluloid Shakespeare adaptation and, instead of the heightened English affectation we've come to expect, we're greeted with an American dialect that isn't fussy and gets straight to the point. There's something really intriguing about it, and the fact that it isn't a regular occurrence makes it all the more melodic to the ears. Denzel Washington's turn as Macbeth in Joel Coen's "The Tragedy...

I Really Wish Doctor Strange And The Multiverse Of Madness Looked More Like A Sam Raimi Movie

When it was announced that Sam Raimi would be directing the next "Doctor Strange" movie, my excitement was through the roof. Raimi has a uniquely kinetic visual style that could take the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a decidedly weirder direction. So why does the teaser trailer for "Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness" look like almost every other Marvel movie or TV show, with just a sprinkling of Raimi's filmmaker flavor on top? Sure, it's only a teaser trailer, and the marketing folks ...

Joel Coen Helped Edit This Classic 1980s Horror Movie

Before Joel Coen made waves during the recent festival circuit for going sans Ethan for his 2021 directorial effort "The Tragedy of Macbeth," it was not completely unheard of for him to work without his brother. Especially during the early days of the fraternal filmmakers' collegiate education, it appeared that their prospective fields of interests were not totally aligned. While Ethan was off pursuing a bachelor's in philosophy at Princeton in New Jersey, Joel was enrolled at the prestigious un...

But for movie directors, Macbeth has been a talisman, a fascinating and liberating challenge – for Akira Kurosawa, with his version, Throne of Blood; for Roman Polanski; and for Justin Kurzel. Even Orson Welles’s once-scorned movie version from 1948, with its quaint...

The Coen Brothers Consider This Their Worst Movie

Starting with their feature film debut in 1984, Joel and Ethan Coen have been power players in the world of American indie cinema.

Their 1996 film "Fargo" still tops lists of the best films of its decade, "Barton Fink" has been called one of the best films ever made about screenwriting, and both 1986's "Raising Arizona" and 1998's "The Big Lebowski" are still on...

Upcoming Denzel Washington Movies To Keep On Your Radar

(Welcome to On Your Radar, a series where we take a look at what's next for the biggest actors and filmmakers, and why you should be excited...or not.)Twenty years after "Training Day" hit theaters, King Kong's still got nothing on Denzel Washington. In an era where IPs are the new A-listers, the two-time Oscar-winner remains one of the rare actors who can draw a crowd on their basis of their name alone. And much like Liam Neeson, Washington has enjoyed a second wind as a member of the 60 and ov...

The Carefully Controlled Carrot: Two Notes on The French Dispatch

1) I waited a long time to see The French Dispatch on a smaller screen in the local Regal cineplex. I pre-read and enjoyed the accompanying book of New Yorker essays entitled An Editor's Burial assembled by Wes Anderson. I thought the movie would never arrive at my small town in South Carolina, but it did . . . and I went away feeling a bit let down. Next to Greta Gerwig and Sofia Coppola, Wes Anderson is one of my favorite of the younger directors out there, and I teach Rushmore (1998) regul...

The Coen Brothers Movies Ranked Worst To Best

There's no one working in cinema today with both the range and skill level of Joel and Ethan Coen. To find any good point of comparison, one would have to look back as far as the Hollywood studio era, far before the concept of an "auteur" assigned any kind of traceable artistry to the director's chair. No two movies they have ever made are the same, even when they contain similar genre trappings or share a general disposition toward the world. Across comedies, dramas, westerns, thrillers, myster...
