In ‘Mr. Jones,’ director Agnieszka Holland tells the true story of the reporter who exposed Stalin’s famine in Ukraine

Filmmaker Agnieszka Holland says she thought she had finished, at least for the moment, making movies with the kind of weight and sorrow of some of her most acclaimed work. At 71, the Polish expatriate had made several films set in the Holocaust, such AS “Europa, Europa,” for which she earned an Academy Award nomination for best adapted screenplay, or “In Darkness,” which was nominated for the Oscar for best foreign film. Other movies focused on the soul-crushing nature of life under the totalit...

Director Howard Deutch talks about the enduring appeal of the John Hughes scripted ‘Pretty In Pink’

Howard Deutch had directed music videos for artists including Billy Idol and Billy Joel and had a thriving business cutting movie trailers for Hollywood studios when in 1985 he landed a dream gig directing his first-ever feature film. At the time, Deutch, now 69, says he was just happy for the opportunity, never thinking that 35 years later he’d still be talking about that movie, the John Hughes written and produced teen romantic comedy “Pretty In Pink.” “It’s a funny thing,” Deutch says of the ...

CS Retrospective Review: Pretty in Pink

CS Retrospective Review: Pretty in Pink Pretty in Pink tells the simple tale of a young, poor-ish girl who falls for a rich kid. Their worlds clash. All the poor-ish kids have hearts of gold. All the rich kids suck. And that’s the gist of John Hughes’ screenplay, which, compared to his other, more distinguished films about teenage angst — namely, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, The Breakfast Club and even Sixteen Candles — feels relatively tame; and surprisingly shallow.

I drove a $50,000 Nissan Titan to see if this updated full-size pickup could finally take on Ford, Chevy, and RAM

I tested a 2020 Nissan Titan Pro-4X pickup truck, a longtime also-ran in the red-hot US full-size market. The Nissan Titan has always had a tough time stealing buyers from Ford, Chevy, GMC, and RAM, as well as Toyota. But as pickup-truck sales have boomed, the Titan doubled deliveries in 2017 and held on to those gains in 2018. So Nissan elected to update the half-ton for 2020. My well-equipped tester cost about $50,000 — an appealing price for a truck with this much going on. I kinda sorta li...
