  • Academy Awards 2014: 'American Hustle's' imperfect 10 at the Oscars

    Academy Awards 2014: 'American Hustle's' imperfect 10 at the Oscars
    It tied with "Gravity" for most Oscar nominations — 10. But when all was said and done Sunday night, David O. Russell's "American Hustle" came away with zero gold statuettes. In a roller-coaster season, "American Hustle" rode more highs and lows...
  • Academy Awards 2014: Lessons of campaign season

    Academy Awards 2014: Lessons of campaign season
    The Oscars are over, Twitter has recovered, the pizza has been devoured and the delivery guy is probably still waiting for the money to make its way from Pharrell Williams' hat to his pocket. But everyone else, host Ellen DeGeneres tells us, is a winner...
  • Oscars 2014: Pitt and Jolie light up the Academy Awards after-party

    Oscars 2014: Pitt and Jolie light up the Academy Awards after-party
    At precisely 10:46 p.m. Sunday -- after the Oscar-hand-out action inside the Dolby Theater was receding in the cultural rear-view mirror with every witticism of Ellen DeGeneres -- and the Academy Awards after-party festivities were in full swing on the...
  • What 'Nymphomaniac' says about director Lars von Trier

    What 'Nymphomaniac' says about director Lars von Trier
    Lars von Trier is in many ways the central casting version of an international art house filmmaker. Or maybe a "Saturday Night Live" parody played straight. Often giving himself the role of the provocateur, Von Trier makes films that dare to examine the...
  • REVIEW: 'Under the Skin' ★★★ 1/2

    REVIEW: 'Under the Skin' ★★&#9733 1/2
    Minds will be blown to the four winds. And — fair warning — a percentage of American ticket buyers may find themselves exasperated and/or exiting early. The film is "Under the Skin," the trippiest in any genre in a long while and a genuinely...
  • Tilda Swinton on Why She Doesn't Consider Herself an Actor

    Tilda Swinton has always exuded an otherworldly aura. Maybe it's the pale, almost translucent skin that highlights her steely blue eyes. She speaks with such rabid intelligence that even a casual conversation sounds like it was scripted by Dorothy Parker....
  • Why sci-fi is obsessed with the near future

    Why sci-fi is obsessed with the near future
    In the West Town loft that Jessica Charlesworth shares with husband, Tim Parsons, along the back wall, on a row of metal filing cabinets, a kaleidoscope of Post-it notes waved in a soft draft, each a kind of dispatch from the future. I leaned in to...
  • Film Review: 'Transcendence'

    "Transcendence" is a most curious name for a movie that never shakes free from those hoary old cliches about the evils of technology and the danger by which man plays at becoming a god. The man in question here is Johnny Depp, whose listless lead...
  • Oscar's Best-Picture Nominations Surprisingly Risky

    People rarely describe Oscar voters as edgy or daring, citing the best-picture victories of "nice" films like "American in Paris" over "Streetcar Named Desire" or "Dances With Wolves" over "Goodfellas." This year, however, it's Oscar gone wild, with...
  • Spike Jonze, Eddy Moretti Talk 'Vice' at HBO's Season Two Premiere

    The reconstruction of Afghanistan, the pacification of Rio de Janeiro, the melting of Greenland, and modern day slavery -- these are just few of the stories being told in the second season of HBO's "Vice." The immersive documentary filmmaking, produced...
  • Film Review: 'Blumenthal'

    The playwright Harold Blumenthal is already dead at the start of "Blumenthal," and so, for the most part, is the movie, a limp facsimile of a Woody Allen ensembler set in a familiar world of New York Jewish intellectuals -- minus only the wit, and the...
  • Oscar's Unsung Heroes: 'Lone Survivor' Stunt Coordinator, 'Llewyn Davis' Cat Herder and 'Her' Vidgame Designer

    Here is Variety's annual look at the standouts in fields that don't offer kudos-the animal trainer on "Inside Llewyn Davis," the stunt coordinator on "Lone Survivor" and the video game designer on "Her." Animal Trainer Herded Scene-Stealing Cats It's...
