Opening Statement

It’s weird to call a film that earned 12 Oscar nominations underrated or forgotten—especially when that films stars Warren Beatty, Diane Keaton, and Jack Nicholson—but Reds is both underrated AND forgotten — by John Gilpatrick, September 11, 2017

Tricks of Time

More than once, as a viewer you have to remind yourself this isn’t World War II that’s being discussed here, these people aren’t the remnants of the Greatest Generation. These are people with memories—most of them from the prime of their life—from half a century before then — by Marcus Emanuel, September 12, 2017

In Context: Ten Days of Revolution

Reds is a funny historical epic. It’s about a pair of writers who, I think it’s fair to say, most people don’t know. It chronicles an event that, I think it’s fair to say, most people don’t understand. And perhaps most remarkably, it does so in a way that gives its audience more credit than it deserves — by John Gilpatrick, September 13, 2017

Filmography: Warren Beatty, Writer-Director

I don’t think my generation has the proper appreciation of Warren Beatty’s career and contribution to cinema—speaking for myself, he has never been a major figure in my relationship to film, with the landmark Bonnie and Clyde being the notable exception — by Aaron Pinkston, September 14, 2017

Related Review: October: Ten Days That Shook the World

October: Ten Days that Shook the World, based loosely on Jack Reed’s book, is a national origin myth, but one that avoids the usual stodginess of patriotic period pieces. Like Reed in the wake of the revolution he witnessed, the film is infused with energy and enthusiasm for new forms and ideas — by Patrick Brown, September 15, 2017
