Critics Skewer Ryan Reynolds' 'The Captive' At Cannes Film Festival

Critics Skewer Ryan Reynolds' 'The Captive' At Cannes Film Festi
Ryan Reynolds' new film "The Captive" was panned by critics at the Cannes International Film Festival over the weekend.

Oscar-nominated filmmaker Atom Egoyan co-wrote and directed the psychological thriller, which centers on a distraught father who searches desperately for his daughter eight years after she is kidnapped.

The audience booed when the film was screened in competition on Friday.

Variety writer Justin Chang labeled it a "ludicrous abduction thriller that finds a once-great filmmaker slipping into previously unentered realms of self-parody."

With the wide-eyed Amanda Seyfried hitting theaters this week via the kidnap thriller "Gone," we thought we’d pay homage to the blond goddess by resurrecting a little five-star nugget from her recent past that some may have missed – welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick! We’re going back to 2009 for a sexy and sultry little erotic thriller that had Seyfried playing a very grown up call girl brought in to help a jealous wife with the adulterous suspicions. But as with every great film helmed by Canadian wunderkind Atom Egoyan there’s more then meets the eye in the sensual and suspenseful flick...

The Adjuster
Since the first week in January always tends to be slow at the movies, I thought it only appropriate to highlight a flick equally as unhurried. Insurance men, censors and rich eccentrics looking for life meaning – welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick! From famed and brilliantly underrated film director Atom Egoyan, this week’s title is his true five-star hidden gem. A marvelous movie that not only had a long lasting affect on me as a movie and cinema lover, but is without question in my top five favorite films of all time. It centers on the world of a calming and sensitive, yet torn up ins...
