"Hello I Must Be Going": Melanie Lynskey's Low-Key Greatness

We knew from Heavenly Creatures that Kate Winslet had a bright career ahead, but in that film, Melanie Lynskey was the one to watch. Is it possible that no director since Peter Jackson has quite known what to do with…

The British Are Coming!

High-toned accents prevailed yet again at the Oscars, as Brits Danny Boyle and Kate Winslet and Aussie Heath Ledger stole the spotlight. (So says our crystal ball; we went to press right before the telecast.) It’s curious that for all…

A Closing Iris

After a long absence from American screens, British stage director Richard Eyre, best known for his agreeably nasty The Ploughman's Lunch in 1982, makes his return with an alternately depressing and uplifting drama about Dame Iris Murdoch's descent into Alzheimer's…

Up the Academy

Reel World

Eyes Wide Shut I called Philip Kaufman's office and, lo and behold, Northern California's greatest (and shiest) filmmaker answered the phone himself. Back only a few days from London, where he just finished shooting Quills with Geoffrey Rush, Kate Winslet,…
