The greatest trick that director Bryan Singer ever pulled was to fool audiences with an unreliable narrator in "The Usual Suspects. " Singer is a producer on the new "Uwantme2killhim?" But this time the unreliable narrative seems to convince only the film's luckless protagonist. Based on a true story recounted by Vanity Fair in 2005, "Uwantme2killhim?" traces in flashback the steps of 16-year-old Mark (Jamie Blackley) leading up to him knifing his best friend, John (Toby Regbo)

Spoiler alert: If you haven't seen the Season 3 finale of the PBS smash hit "Downton Abbey," stop reading now. Will we all sleep better now, knowing that our beloved Downton is finally safe? Oh, yes, I realize many fans will be donning crepe and funeral bonnets in wake of the death of Matthew Crawley (Dan Stevens) in the season finale of "Downton Abbey" - so young he was, so "heppy," motoring along in the bliss of new fatherhood when - bam! - mowed down by a lorry.

Just a few confounding weekends stand in the way of American audiences and the fourth season unveiling of "Downton Abbey" on PBS -- at least for those who haven't found a way around bureaucracy. In the Season 3 closer, perpetually unlucky-in-love Lady Edith found a career and potential for romance (albeit, with some red tape); widower Branson fell victim to the charms of a new maid; Anna danced for Bates; and Lady Mary was left a widow soon after giving birth to the heir just as the fate of the Downton Abbey estate was about to perk up. PHOTOS: 'Downton Abbey's' cast without costumes We caught up with some of the women of "Downton Abbey" -- Elizabeth Dockery (Lady Mary)

The Emmys are so predictable … so boring … so uninspired … unless, of course, voters are rewarding your favorite show yet again, and then it's wildly on-target, a well-deserved honor bestowed by perceptive and discriminating industry authorities. FOR THE RECORD: Julia Louis-Dreyfus: The Gold Standard column in the Aug. 9 edition of The Envelope said that Julia Louis-Dreyfus was a 12-time Emmy nominee. The actress has 13 nominations. - Expect a great many predictable (and well-deserved)

It's almost time, folks! Season 4 of "Downton Abbey" is almost upon us with its fall premiere -- oh, wait! That only applies to those in the U.K. For those of us on the wrong side of the pond who have to wait more than a few of those wretched weekends until the drama's PBS rollout on Jan. 5, don't fret. You might be the lowly servants of the "Downton Abbey" viewership, but a good employee always stays informed -- for some of you, that means reading this article and turning to online pirates once the season premieres; for others, it means reading articles such as this and waiting .

"Downton Abbey," a period British TV series that has become an American obsession, is back Sunday night for its third season, in the framework of "Masterpiece: Classic. " For the several millions who have waited months for its return, it is a day that has not come too soon; I am not unhappy to see it myself. With its castle and costumes and superior production values - the show is never less than lovely to look at, and most every second of it is deliciously acted, in a way you are meant to notice - it is comfort food packaged as a gourmet meal, old soap in a Tiffany container.
