House Impeachment Managers Deliver Articles To The Senate

Updated at 6:30 p.m. ET The House of Representatives has delivered articles of impeachment against President Trump to the Senate, which is expected to begin a trial next week. Earlier in the day, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi named seven Democratic members of Congress as the managers who will argue the case for impeachment.

Why can't I learn about the artist's creative process in these films about artists?

"Iris" is not really about novelist/philosopher Iris Murdoch -— it is about her enduring romance with John Bayley and the degenerative effects of Alzheimer’s disease. Her words from the lecture podium are often aimed at the thematic core of the film: the need for love.

Both stories appear to represent the director’s dark feelings about writing, filmmaking, and the critics who accuse him of being superior to his characters.

Todd Solondz's "Welcome to the Dollhouse" showed comic/absurd promise; his masturbation scene in "Happiness" overstepped the boundary of film taste but got everyone’s attention.

Denzel Washington, Kimberly Elise & Daniel E. Smith star in John Q.

In the most blessed country in the history of civilization, is it too much to think that all Americans could have adequate health care?

On Valentine's Day I discovered the love story of the year so tender and tentative I was annoyed when one of the loving couples went at it rather than talk about it...

Gabriele Muccino's "The Last Kiss" is a rapidly paced bedroom romp where everyone is either getting laid or just getting... you've got it... screwed.

For women, hope is the day she will be seen...

"Kandahar," is a sometimes-expressionistic drama about a disguised Afghani woman, Canadian reporter Nafas, trying to get to the city of Kandahar to stop her sister from committing suicide during the next solar eclipse.(Actress Nelofer Pazira went through a similar struggle).

"Behind Enemy Lines" or even "M*A*S*H" pale next to this Cannes winner for best screenplay...

The small town seaport of Camden, Maine rivals Peyton Place as a setting for romance and jealousy...

How director Todd Field (TV series: "Once and Again") gets so much right in his first feature film, "In the Bedroom," but lets it slip away is only one of the mysteries to be solved in this slow-moving story about wife abuse and retaliatory murder.

One of the best films of 2001 and one of the most stunning debuts of a director ever...

You'd think angst in the late '80s was reserved for those who could foresee Wall Street greed transform itself into a monumental crash a little more than a decade later. Then there's Donnie Darko, who could see the end of the world prophesied by a menacing Harvey-like bunny, a sort of guardian devil.

"Waking Life" or dreaming life? That is the question Linklater's cast asks in this clever new update of "Vivre Sa Vie" and "My Dinner With Andr?."

Foxconn's Promises Slow To Materialize In Wisconsin

During a ceremony at the White House in July 2017, a beaming President Trump announced Foxconn was coming to Wisconsin. The world's largest contract manufacturer of consumer electronics wanted to be in America, Trump said. "Investing many, many billions of dollars, right here in America, creating thousands of jobs," Trump said. "And I mean, American jobs, that's what we want." To land the company, Wisconsin's then-governor, Republican Scott Walker, signed one of the largest tax incentive...
