Double Take: 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid' (1969)

The two Steves at Double Take are often mistaken for Paul Newman and Robert Redford; so it's appropriate that they shoot it out over Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

How Does One Go On When 'All Is Lost'?

J.C. Chandor’s film is a surprisingly unsparing and rigorous piece of work, tinged with an unsentimental fatalism.

In Defense of Going to the Movies

The popcorn. The posters. The previews. The audience camaraderie. What's not to love?

Saint Fonda in the Backyard: The Iconic Jane Works It Out

Golden Age Hollywood scion, feminist activist, and general all-around bad-ass Jane Fonda is back, and this time she's hitting the campaign trail on behalf of the health of boomers and senior citizens.

Reviews

Downhill Racer

A visually stunning sports movie that tweaks the formula just enough to make a personal, thoughtful film without refuting genre expectation.

Reviews

Kids' DVDs: June 2007

Given that babies and young children love nothing more than repetition, repetition, and... um.... repetition, I can't understand why even the pointiest of heads would think children between the ages of six months and three years could possible need 23 different Baby Einstein DVDs.

Inside The Actors Studio - Icons

Tuning in to see stars at their most bat-shit loony is one of the most pure forms of contemporary American entertainment, so there is a grain of merit to be found in each episode.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969)

Historians and pulp comic fans knew their story, but most didn't. The enduring image of the affable outlaws was born in this classic 1969 film. That the story is fairly true to life is even more remarkable.

An Unfinished Life (2005)

For his part, Lasse Hallström likes the subtler strokes, as the scene when Redford sits in his truck and is unable to start it.

An Unfinished Life (2005)

For all its attention to fading landscapes and independence, cowboys and loyalties, the movie is more quaintly melodramatic than adventurous.

The Clearing (2004)

The kidnapping sets in motion a thriller that doubles as a character study, delving into Wayne and Eileen's strained marriage.

The Clearing (2004)

As wealthy, world-weary Pittsburgh businessman Wayne Hayes, Robert Redford is typically low-key.

The Great Gatsby (1974)

Raises a perennial question: if they can make a decent movie out of The Bridges of Madison County, why not a great one out of one of the best novels of the 20th century?"

Spy Game (2001)

The film's assumptions about the Agency, are, in a word, Before September 11, before top secret government agencies (CIA, FBI, etc.) were revealed as not doing what they've been pretending to be doing all this time.
