Antonio Banderas spoke to That Shelf about Pedro Almodóvar’s Pain & Glory, where he plays an aging film director who reflects upon his career, creative stagnation, and the rich life that inspired his passion for the cinema.
TIFF 2019: Pain and Glory Review
Director Asghar Farhadi's riveting drama is a moral fable disguised as a potboiler that pulls the strings on a deceptively familiar premise.
Zoolander 2 makes a valiant effort, but it's too slow and out of touch to match the brilliance of its predecessor.
Here's one it probably feels like you've been waiting a really, really, ridiculously long time for. Enter for your chance to win passes to advanced screenings of Zoolander 2 in Toronto or Montreal.
Ben Stiller is back to save the world with Magnum.
It’s hard to think of a film that will be more openly divisive between critics, and yet no one in the general public would see or even necessarily enjoy all that much than Ridley Scott and Cormac McCarthy's The Counselor. I have no idea who this movie is aimed at pleasing or entertaining outside of McCarthy himself, but I’m kind of glad it exists. I think.
I cannot give a film a pass simply because it is fun to watch. There are plenty of really bad films that are fun to watch, but that doesn't make them good films. Which is why to some degree it pains me to give the latest entry in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise a modestly negative review. It almost gets everything I like about the series right, but once you leave the theatre it will dawn on you that what you just saw wasn't all that great.
