A couple of Safdies out for a 'Good Time'

In sync with the pace of their latest feature, "Good Time," things are moving fast for Josh and Ben Safdie. At this year's Cannes Film Festival their mad sprint of a crime thriller, starring Robert Pattinson as a small-time hood scrambling one step ahead of the law after a bank robbery, enjoyed a warm reception (not without controversy; see below). The prestigious distributor A24, backers of last year's Academy Award-winning gem "Moonlight," is handling "Good Time" as well as the Safdie brothers' next film, "Uncut Gems," based on their father's experiences in midtown Manhattan's diamond district. That one is set to star Jonah Hill; Scott Rudin is producing, with Martin Scorsese aboard as executive producer. Big league time.

James Cameron on 3-D 'Terminator 2': It's a 'thrill'

Director James Cameron has always embraced the newest technology available when making his movies. For his 1991 feature "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," Cameron teamed with Industrial Light & Magic to produce the liquid metal special effect that allowed the murderous robot from the future, the T-1000 (Robert Patrick), to morph into multiple shapes.

Movie review: Enhanced 'T2' is bigger, better that ever

"Terminator 2: Judgment Day" established its place 26 years ago among the top feature films ever made. Under the brilliant guidance of director James Cameron, the movie not only set new standards for special effects but flawlessly blended a tale of an apocalyptic event in the near future brought on by robots with a story of a very different family. Granted, the father in the scenario was emotionally cold, didn't understand love and focused entirely on his job but that's not too different from many dads in other feature films focused on family.

Movie review: 'Beach Rats' embraces casual splendor

Directors often command attention for their project through expensive special effects, complicated stories or frantic visual styling. More often than not, this moviemaking bravado is either a sign that the person at the wheel doesn't know how to steer the cinematic ship or that the vessel is being cleverly guided so that massive dark shadows cover over the harsh glare of the project's weaknesses.

Movie review: 'Crown Heights' is a story that must be told

One of the most fundamental foundations of the legal system – known as the Blackstone ratio because of 18th century English jurist William Blackstone – is that it is better for 10 guilty persons to get away free than for one innocent man to suffer. Even with that guiding principle, there are an estimated 120,000 innocent people in prison.
