Matthew McConaughey

Dallas Buyers Club Review

A definite high point in the still rising career Matthew McConaughey, and a very good, but lesser film in the career of Canadian director Jean-MarcVallee, Dallas Buyers Club runs a bit overlong, but it delivers a firm emotional punch at the hands of an unrepentant and initially reprehensible protagonist.

Mud Review

Mud feels like a classical young adult novel from the 80s or 90s brought to life with all of the life lessons intact, and it's mostly a positive thing.

This “Week” in DVD: 12/18/12

With films coming to home video two days this week (Tuesday and Friday) here's part one of our look at the latest releases including Beasts of the Southern Wild, Killer Joe, Total Recall, Premium Rush, and Arbitrage.

The Paperboy Review

Fleetingly campy and sleazy at the opening and closing, The Paperboy is ultimately too boring during the middle hour of the film to leave any sort of lasting impression outside of the film's most bizarre moments.

Interview: Zac Efron & David Oyelowo

We talk to the dreamy Zac Efron and British actor David Oyelowo about their latest film, the controversial The Paperboy, working with director Lee Daniels, acting period appropriate for the 1960s, and the whole "getting peed on thing" that everyone has been talking about.

Killer Joe Review

It certainly can't be recommended for everybody, but for keen viewers familiar with a stomach for pitch black humour and a cast of irredeemable characters, William Friedkin and Tracy Letts' Killer Joe might be one of the best movies of the year.

Interview: William Friedkin

We talk to master filmmaker William Friedkin, director of The Exorcist and The French Connection about his latest film Killer Joe, and the casting of Matthew McConaughey, his working relationship with playwright Tracy Letts, his thoughts on the NC-17 rating, what he thinks movies are missing these days, why he doesn't make many films, the writing of his memoirs, which Hollywood classic he never liked, and the status of two of his films that have never surfaced on DVD in this in-depth interview.
