Last week the trailer for Sundance Selects’ “Tabloid,” one of Errol Morris’s best films in some time, hit the net. The poster has also been floating around, so I thought I’d toss that up as well. Have a look at the full image after the jump.

‘Tabloid’ trailer

Posted by · 3:12 pm · June 9th, 2011

One of the most compelling films I saw at last year’s Telluride Film Festival was Errol Morris’s new documentary, “Tabloid.” The film is “masterful work with Morris’s trademark sense of humor splattered all over it,” I wrote at the time. “One of his best films in years.” I’m looking forward to seeing it again. Sundance […]

LONDON: ‘Tabloid,’ ‘Waste Land,’ ‘The Peddler’

I can easily see […]

TELLURIDE: ‘Never Let Me Go,’ ‘Tabloid’

Posted by · 1:16 am · September 4th, 2010

On the first day of this year’s fest, things are off to an interesting, up and down start. I would bore you with an intro, but it’s late and I’m fading. Let’s get to the reactions… “Never Let Me Go” (**) I went back and read Guy’s summation of Kazuo Ishiguro’s novel “Never Let Me […]

TELLURIDE: Settling in with the freshly unveiled line-up

Posted by · 3:55 pm · September 2nd, 2010

I’m just settling in here in the Colorado mountainside as the Telluride Film Festival prepares to draw the curtain on its 37th dance tomorrow afternoon. As I look over the schedule (I Tweeted the films earlier this morning), I’m seeing plenty to chew on. For starters, the world premiere of Peter Weir’s “The Way Back” […]
