REMEMBERING SIDNEY POITIER

859
Sidney Poitier’s milestone achievements are so numerous they scarcely need repeating here. But I would like to pass along a personal reminiscence.  Meeting The Man for the first time made a deep impression on my wife and me. His…

THE HAND OF GOD: AN INSPIRED IMPORT

886
Paolo Sorrentino has made some exceptional films, including ‘Il Divo’ and ‘The Great Beauty’ (my favorite) but he says it took twenty years—and the courage he derived from watching Alfonso Cuarón’s Roma—to tell his own coming-of-age story in The…

PARALLEL MOTHERS: ALMODÓVAR’S LATEST

813
