Tarkovsky Films Now Free Online Andrei Tarkovsky (1932-1986) firmly positioned himself as the finest Soviet director of the post-War period. But his influence extended well beyond the Soviet Union.

Bob Hoskins in Who Framed Roger Rabbit Invented the Modern Blockbuster Performance There is a man squatting at the lowest point of his personal and professional life. He’s a classic film-noir detective living from job to job in Hollywood in the late 1940s, the dark hero of an ’80s neo-noir.

But the job he’s on now is tough, the toughest one he’s had yet: it started small, with him taking sleazy pictures of a gorgeous woman fooling around on her husband, but it’s turned into a case full of greed, murder, and a city-wide conspiracy. The worst cut of all: to save his reputation and his life, this gumshoe has to go to the one place he’s feared for years, the place where his cop brother was killed.

The Best Movies About Divorce The beauty of film is that—when done right—a movie can so accurately reflect the human experience. Take divorce, for example. There are thousands of stories on the topic, but most of us keep coming back to a select few that vary in tone, but each get to the core of what it's like dealing with a broken marriage. Some are grim depictions (like the 1979 film and Oscars juggernaut Kramer vs. Kramer, which examines a custody battle), while others are fizzy wish-fulfillment tales (like The Parent Trap and Under the Tuscan Sun).
