We entered this interview with the agreement that Theodore Bikel would be in the character of Tevye, who is now 250 years old. Tevye is the simple 'Everyman,' this multi-hyphenate folksinger, actor and peace activist made famous in the Broadway musical, "Fiddler on the Roof."
His acting career is percolating nicely -- featured role on a hit sitcom, parts in Oscar-winning films such as Argo and respected series such as The Newsroom -- but Chris Messina couldn't pass up the opportunity to direct a film of his own.
By not overdoing a southern accent while also reportedly voluntarily putting on some weight for the role, actor David Oyelowo shines in this film. And he's not the only one. They all shine.
Mr. Turner, directed by Mike Leigh, is by no means a coherent biography, but a gorgeous riveting film that presents brief, often unconnected excerpts from the latter years of the great British painter William Turner.
As a director Jon Stewart's persona is a far cry from that of the television host. Instead of treating Bahari's story as a comic strip or subject of satire (in the way Argo partially did in its tale of a notorious escape from Iran), Stewart tackles his subject with deadly seriousness.
Movies do not have to be political in order to be successful. Film as sheer entertainment can matter.
We all have one. Some of us have two or three. It may be a movie. It may be an actor. But there's no doubt there is some film-related icon that you just don't get. Everybody else loves it, or him, or her, but not you.

The Best Picture rarely tells us what the best picture is. But it very often gives us a valuable glimpse into what our society is going through at the time of the award. I thought I'd take a stab at describing what a win for each contender would say about our current society.
One of the rare films I have seen to occasion applause at the end. I saw it at a theater 125 miles north of Cincinnati. Don't want to be a spoiler, so I will only say this. George's dad, Nick Clooney, has the last word in this one, and frankly, steals the show.
With "Philomena" out in limited release now, HuffPost Entertainment spoke to Desplat about his contribution to Frears' film
The potential for violence lives within all of us, and I'm no exception. Violence in my novels is contrived--it's pure fiction--but reflects a core truth about human nature. It's never meant to be gratuitous, but rather serves the story.
After all of the critical acclaim Ben Affleck has received in recent years -- culminating with Argo, a movie that he both directed and starred, winning best picture earlier this year -- why in the world would he want to play Batman? I have a better grasp on this after watching Affleck in Runner, Runner, of all things.
