Happy Birthday, Terrence Malick.

CHILDREN OF MEN is one of the best films of this century, so far. And further proof that Alfonso Cuarón is one of the best filmmakers working today. #bornonthisday

Happy Birthday to Kathryn Bigelow — the first woman to win the Academy Award for Best Director with THE HURT LOCKER.

Director Lynn Hershman Leeson enlists the one and only Tilda Swinton (SUSPIRIA, ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE, WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN) to play four roles — the bio-geneticist Rosetta Stone and the three self-replicating automatons cloned from her DNA — in this mischievous science-fiction drama where the cyborgs need the Y chromosome found only in semen to become immortal. Their method to obtain the Y chromosome leads them to have relationships with men in the outside world, that is until a virus takes over the men’s bodies, culminating in bio-gender warfare.

In September 1971, thieves tunneled into the vault of a bank in London's Baker Street and looted safe deposit boxes of cash and jewelry worth millions and millions of pounds. None of it was recovered. Nobody was ever arrested. The robbery made headlines for a few days and then suddenly disappeared - the result of a UK Government 'D' Notice, gagging the press. This film reveals what was hidden in those boxes, involving murder, corruption and a sex scandal with links to the Royal Family - a story in which the thieves were the most innocent people involved.

"There has never been an uninteresting angle on Richard Nixon - the man was too twisted - but @pennyjupiter’s documentary sees him from several especially compelling new vantages." — David Edelstein, @vulture #ElectionDay

The Academy Award-winning Tilda Swinton has earned a reputation for taking on strange and transformative roles — she often disappears into them completely, especially in movies like ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE (pictured above), SNOWPIERCER, and THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL. She took things a step further with the 2018 remake of SUSPIRIA, secretly playing an elderly man, and even claiming that the fictitious actor Lutz Ebersdorf played the character. But Swinton is much more than a chameleon — she is one of the most talented actresses of her generation. Even when she isn’t transforming into over-the-top characters, Swinton always brings complex layers to her performances. This is a rare gift, and it is one of the many reasons that Tilda Swinton is one of the greats. #BornOnThisDay

Literary adaptations have forever provoked us to debate: Book or movie? In this collection, we bring the written word to the screen so you can decide for yourself! These movies are all based on literature, including a Shakespearean tragedy (HAMLET), a work from Charles Dickens (NICHOLAS NICKLEBY), a play about the life of poet T. S. Eliot (TOM AND VIV), a classic by Emily Brontë (WUTHERING HEIGHTS), and a few novels by contemporary literary icons Jack Kerouac (BIG SUR) and Haruki Murakami (NORWEGIAN WOOD). Plus a saga so successful in Europe (THE MILLENNIUM TRILOGY) that we needed an American version (THE GIRL WITH A DRAGON TATOO), and many more!
