October 9th, 2008

A comic and dramatic action film starring two small English boys doesn’t sound a lot like Giueseppe Tornatore’s much-loved 1988 classic Cinema Paradiso. Was Jennings aware he’d be joining such auspicious company with other films about how the movies can so completely seduce us, especially as children?

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
January 24th, 2008

December 3rd, 2005

January 23rd, 2003

July 26th, 2007
