Watch: Beautiful New Trailer For 'Carol' Plus Anatomy Of A Scene And Listen To Carter Burwell's Full Score

Are there any superlatives left for "Carol"?

With the movie in theaters today, a new trailer plus an "Anatomy Of A Scene" featurette with Todd Haynes have arrived online. Read More: Review: Todd Haynes' 'Carol' Starring Cate Blanchett And Rooney Mara Based on the novel "The Price Of Salt" by Patricia Highsmith, the 1950s set tale centers on the romance that blooms between a married woman and young department store clerk. But don't think of it as strictly a lesbian tale. "Because the love story here is between two women, I think the audience feels like they're seeing something dangerous and uncharted, in the same way that anyone — whether they're transgendered, bi,

Watch: Christopher Nolan's 'Anatomy Of A Scene' For 'Interstellar' Plus Jessica Chastain's Nasa PSA

First highly anticipated, and then upon its release equally divisive, even nearly two months since it landed in theaters, Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar" continues to stir debate and chatter. But perhaps the one thing that everyone can agree on is that despite the Dylan Thomas poem recitals, hokey love vs. science theme, and needless inclusion of Topher Grace, "Interstellar" is an accomplished piece of filmmaking. And this New York Times "Anatomy Of A Scene" segment is a reminder of the lengths Nolan went to fully immerse viewers into the big-screen experience. The director narrates the sequence that finds Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway making a tricky landing on a watery planet. It's a tense moment, but just as remarkable is how little of it is CGI. As Nolan reminds us, for the production of "Insterstellar" they built life-size ships to film in, mounting cameras both inside and out, and created

Watch: 24-Minute 'Anatomy Of A Scene' Documentary On The Making Of Christopher Nolan's 'Memento'

These days, Christopher Nolan is known for his big-budget, tentpole spectacles. “The Dark Knight” trilogy. “Inception.” "Interstellar.” But we can’t forget the director’s much smaller, more indie pedigree. While Nolan’s first film, “Following” didn’t do much business at all, it put him on the map, and he seized the opportunity with “Memento." Told “backwards,” the film stars Guy Pearce as Leonard, a man with no short-term memory on a quest to find his wife’s murderer. To keep track of the clues he unearths, he tattoos vital information on his body. The film bucked convention, jumping chronologically, alternating black and white with color, and depicting many scenes in reverse, so that audiences saw the end first, and then watched events unfold that led there. If you're a fan of the film, this Sundance Channel "Anatomy Of A Scene" documentary on the making of the movie is worth a watch.

Blu-Ray review: The Quiet American – Superior Character Piece Given Terrible HD Transfer

Perhaps we require roles like Thomas Fowler’s to be played by veteran actors; we have to be able to read the murky past all over his face. He is an aging journalist stationed in ’50s Vietnam during the First Indochina War. He has been around too long and is too weary to have any ideals left; they’ve been replaced by cynicism and uncertainty. He understands the problems in Vietnam, but he doesn’t pretend to have a solution; he probably knows the counter-argument to everything one could put forward. He is married to a woman in England who will not give him a divorce; he is in love with a twenty-year-old Vietnamese girl. If he keeps pursuing stories in Vietnam, his paper won’t recall him to London, and he’ll be able to stay with her.

In Phillip Noyce’s 2002 adaptation of Graham Greene’s 1955 novel, Fowler is played by Michael Caine.
