    In Theaters: 'Drive' Looks To Zoom Past 'Straw Dogs' & 'I Don't Know How She Does It'

    Hello friends. Your mission, should you choose to accept it (WHICH YOU WILL CAUSE I SAID SO) is to go see "Drive" this weekend. There is no other movie playing in theaters. Nope, not one. There, this column is over. Done! "Drive" is all there is to see. Worth seeing anyway. And I would be remiss if I didn't champion truly original and excellent filmmaking in this column. Do not go see "Lion King 3D." We are not children (if you are a child, why are you reading this? Stop now). Don't you remember that talk we had back when "Green Whatever" came out?

Way back in 2009 Jeremy Garelick -- who did an uncredited rewrite on Todd Phillips' "The Hangover" and also has a story credit on "The Break-Up" -- was hired to write and direct a big screen adaptation of the hit '90s TV show. About a year later, Garelick left and Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka — the 2009 Black List writers behind the upcoming David Gordon Green/Jonah Hill adventure comedy "The Sitter" -- were brought on pen the script. And then we sort of stopped paying attention, but at some point Peter Tolan ("Rescue Me," "Analyze That"...

    The Amazing Race: Which Awards Contenders Came Out Of The Venice/Telluride/Toronto Derby On Top?

    After two bonkers weeks, the September festival season is just about dragging to a close (at least in terms of major awards-season debuts; Fantastic Fest is pretty much imminent, but it's not an awards player and the NYFF follows hot on its heels, but most of those films have screened already).
