 Breathless: Criterion Collection

Jean-Luc Godard’s Breathless (1960) is arguably the most famous example of the French New Wave, a group of film critics who were inspired by classic Hollywood films to become filmmakers themselves. Breathless certainly wasn’t the first French New...

 The Two Jakes: Special Collector’s Edition

Making a sequel to a classic film like Chinatown (1974) was never going to be easy. How do you equal or surpass the original? Robert Towne, who wrote the first film, penned the next installment. However, the film’s original director, Roman Polanski,...

 Inside the Actors Studio: Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp has always seemed like a character actor trapped in a leading man’s body. He was initially cast as a teen heart throb in the popular television show, 21 Jump Street – a role he grew uncomfortable with because he saw himself being transformed...
