Boyhood Review

Few films ever earn the right to be called a masterpiece. Richard Linklater's Boyhood is a masterpiece.

Interview: Richard Linklater

We talk with acclaimed American filmmaker Richard Linklater about his twelve year experience making Boyhood, his process, framing his epic story, the casting of Ellar Coltrane, the evolution of technology, parenting, and people’s reactions to the film.

Blu-Ray Round Up: 11/4/13

This week brings looks at some leftover spooks, 'splosions, and some romance as we transition from Halloween in to the deeper recesses of fall. We look at Roland Emmerich's latest blockbuster White House Down, John Carpenter's underrated In the Mouth of Madness, James's Wan's surprise megahit The Conjuring, Richard Linklater's trilogy capping Before Midnight, and Neil Jordan's unjustly slept-on Byzantium.
