The British director of "Don't Look Now" and many other films died Friday night, his son, Nicolas Roeg Jr., told Britain's Press Association.
"He was a genuine dad," Roeg Jr. said Saturday. "He just had his 90th birthday in August."

'The Leisure Seeker' is a gentle journey (review)
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- In the opening minutes of "The Leisure Seeker," there was a Donald Trump speech blaring from a roving campaign car and a Carole King song from her mega-selling album of the 1970s, "Tapestry." My first thought was: That's two strikes.
When Helen Mirren showed up a few minutes later in a bad brown wig, sporting a Southern accent, I thought: This is going to be long couple of hours.
Donald Sutherland provides sly star power to FX's 'Trust' (review)
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The much-traveled maxim assures us that "money can't buy happiness." OK, now for the flip side of that coin. If you want to see just how much unhappiness money can buy, invest some time in the dark and disturbing FX series "Trust," which premieres at 10 p.m. Sunday, March 25.

Angela Henderson-Bentley: Strong acting not enough to overcome plot problems in ‘Trust’
Is it possible to be completely riveted by an actor's performance, yet still want to see less of them?
After seeing the first three episodes of FX's new drama, "Trust," I can tell you that yes, it is possible, as Donald Sutherland gives a tour de force performance, but his character is so incredibly creepy that the show actually improves when he's not onscreen. Yet, Sutherland's character is only one of the problems with FX's latest too over-the-top tale inspired by actual events.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Academy Awards and digital cameras eluded cinematographer Owen Roizman during his Hollywood career. But in retirement, he's found both.
Roizman is among four recipients of honorary Oscar statuettes being celebrated Saturday at the film academy's ninth annual Governors Awards ceremony.

VENICE, Italy (AP) — The Italian nights are getting cooler as fall approaches, and there's something autumnal about many of the movies at the Venice Film Festival this year.

Donald Sutherland is all about the power of the female
This year’s slate of Oscar contenders is stronger than usual, but it’s hard to understand how Amy Adams was left off the list of best actress nominees.
“Arrival” received eight well-deserved nominations, including one for best picture, but the performer who had to carry most of the science-fiction drama on her back failed to make the cut.
