    Richard Kelly To Keep Things (Relatively) Simple For His Next Film 'Corpus Christi'

    Well, Richard Kelly at least gets an A for effort. Despite them both being critical and box office turds, "The Box" and "Southland Tales" were nothing if not ambitious and we say, if you're gonna fail, might was as well fail big. That being said, Kelly is wisely stepping away from the supernatural a...

    Review: 'Putty Hill' Combines Narrative And Doc To Provide An Experience Like No Other

    A loud, rapid series of thuds are heard. Deep in the woods, a ferocious game of paintball rages on as if lives were at stake or land was to be won. Taking cover behind a large, makeshift contraption is a young boy, one who wouldn't look too inappropriate on MTV's "Skins." He's not fit for this war, that's for sure, and the camera lingers on him as he catches breath and prepares to hide out for all eternity, or just until the end of the game. Suddenly, an off-camera voice breaks the peace and asks straight-forward, personal questions, which lead to explanations as to why he's involved in a game he could care less for and why his mood is more t...

    Kimberly Peirce Signed Up To Direct Universal's South Central Gang Member Drama 'The Knife'

    After not hearing from her for a while, Kimberly Peirce is ready to direct "The Knife," a drama of a South Central gang member-turned-paid FBI informant, for Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment. Apparently, this man's collaboration with the Feds turned over many criminals, including drug lords and murderers. He was so successful that leaders of gangs put out a "kill all snitches" order, placing the informant's life in danger. The premise is based on a true story adapted from the 2008 article "The Inside Man" in GQ Magazine by Guy Lawson. Black List and Nicholl Fellowship-winning screenwriter Vineet Dewan ("Sand Dogs") will pen the sc...
