Article: The best flops of 2011

The end of the year is a cruel time for movies. Everything gets broken down into winners and losers: this film got a nomination, this one didn’t; this film is the best, this one isn’t. But movies aren’t nearly so black and white. A film can win over the hearts of every person who sees…

Article: “Killer Elite,” reviewed

You’ve heard people boast they could beat someone up with one hand tied behind their back before. In “Killer Elite,” Jason Statham beats two guys up with both of his hands tied behind his back, while the rest of him is tied to a chair. That’s a picture of the scene above. Look at that.…

Five Clive Owen Roles in Order of Cragginess

Article: Five Clive Owen Roles in Order of Cragginess

Fact: Clive Owen’s face is a thing of craggy beauty. That weathered face, the chiseled jaw, those soulful eyes, combine into an object worthy of being nominated for an Oscar separately from the man himself. Not that Mr. Owen isn’t a great actor, because clearly he is, it’s just that his face does some of…

Article: Toronto 2010: “Trust,” Reviewed

Reviewed at the 2010 Toronto Film Festival. Nothing comes easy in “Trust,” a drama about pedophilia that will inevitably face heavy scrutiny should it make it out of Toronto, and even with Clive Owen and Catherine Keener, there’s reason to be skeptical. It is at once an attempt to deal with one of the last…

Article: Attention Owed to Clive Owen

In this week’s “The Boys Are Back,” Clive Owen seems to break from his usual screen persona to play a sports writer whose wife passes away, leaving him a single dad forced to reconnect with and learn to take care of his two sons. But how far a stretch is that, really, for a man…

Fame, Rage and Capitalism

Article: Fame, Rage and Capitalism

This week, contrasting approaches to filmmaking bring about balance and equilibrium. Experimentalism (Sally Potter’s “Rage” and Michael Almereyda’s “Paradise”) collides head on with tried and tested formulas (the Clive Owen starrer “The Boys Are Back” and a remake of “Fame”).

Article: Tom Tykwer Talks “The International”

German filmmaker Tom Tykwer (“Run, Lola, Run,” “Perfume”) may have been working on “The International” for years, but his new thriller sure seems frighteningly prescient amidst the current news of economic despair and predatory lenders. Clive Owen stars as an impassioned Interpol agent who, along with his District Attorney pal Naomi Watts, aims to take…
