The French Revolution Continues In London

French film is continually re-inventing itself and finding new ways of expression in a 100-year-old art form. At this year’s London Film Festival, a section appropriately entitled French Revolutions showcases some of the cinematic trend-setters of the year.   With the obvious exception of the American and the ...

America's Summer European Hits

 by Sandy Mandelberger, Coming Attractions Editor While it is never simple to release a foreign language film in a market dominated by Hollywood, a few European films have managed to become critical and public hits as America moves into its final days of summer before next weekend’s Labor Day.
