    There's a brilliant documentary on BBC2 this Sunday called You've Been Trumped. Here I meet the director Anthony Baxter to talk about his film - which made me very angry - in a good way.

    Time to go home but not before a last report on Doug Liman's thriller Fair Game, starring Naomi Watts and Sean Penn, a movie version of the true story of CIA operative Valerie Plame who paid the price for her husband's reaction to the evidence that launched the Iraq war during the Bush Cheney years.

    It's all been going so well and now I'm not quite feeling myself, mainly because I no longer am myself apparently.

    Wednesday 19 May 2010, 12:21

    Mark Kermode Mark Kermode

    Stephen Woolley, legendary British producer whose epic back catalogue of cinematic brilliance includes Mona Lisa, Angel, Scandal, The Big Man, Little Voice, and The Crying Game - not to mention his own directorial debut Stoned (that Rolling Stones movie you didn't see), lends us an insider's perspective...

    Three reviews today: Kitano's Outrage, Godard's Film Socialisme and Kiarostami's Copie Conforme and one of them is by far the worst film at Cannes this year with days left to go...

    Stop press: there's now a serious contender for Best Actor in Alejandro González Iñárritu's Biutiful, and as a special treat I get to chat with one of my heroes, Fernando Trueba, the man behind the overlooked Mad Monkey, and now completing an animated movie in collaboration with the brilliant...

    On a diet of about four films per day including Mike Leigh's Another Year, Gregg Araki's Kaboom, the cultish possessed car tyre movie Rubber, Woody Allen's You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, and Hideo Nakata's Chatroom, I can't argue that most food groups aren't being served this year, but who is looking...

    Monday 17 May 2010, 11:04

    Mark Kermode Mark Kermode

    While my job here is to attempt a rational critical opinion of tons of movies against a backdrop of hysterical anticipation, others are doing the serious business of trying to raise the money to complete them: movies such as John Landis's Burke and Hare starring Simon Pegg, Isla Fisher, and two-time...

    Two years ago they promised the moon... would deliver a Nazi invasion. And this year the lunacy is real. Let's review the pitch: the Moon, UFOs, Nazis, Udo Kier... Yes the Iron Sky is finally about to fall on our heads and I couldn't be happier.

    Where's the best place to form a considered critical opinion of a movie like Oliver Stone's new Wall Street movie? How about in the middle of an overexcited, overdressed crowd of film buffs while a brass band plays cover versions of old movie themes?

    The festivities are begun, but with Robin Hood and an excoriating documentary about Silvio Berlusconi among the treasures already banked, a sheen of sanity prevails. For now.
