    Producers to Watch: J. Todd Harris - Creative Producer

    During AFM I spoke at length with J. Todd Harris, who we’ve known since his days running John Davis’ Classics division at Fox and from the go-go days of the dotcom bubble when we were both affiliated with a start up called ReelPlay. Todd and I had a wide-ranging conversation that included his background as a theatre producer, his early independent film days, his recent Sundance films (The Kids Are All Right and Bottle Shock), his current projects, and plans to launch Branded Pictures Entertainment (BPE). His two latest completed projects were both launched at AFM (The Family Tree, ISA: Myriad, and Miss Nobody, ISA: Moving Pictures). Both wer...

    Video: "The Social Network" As Directed by Wes Anderson, Michael Bay, Guilermo del Toro and Others

    Bring out the usual suspects, as in the only few directors that parodists seem to have a handle on for their film spoofs. And when I say "a handle," I mean they don't actually get them at all. CollegeHumor has a new video meant to show what "The Social Network" would have been like had other well-known filmmakers gotten the gig instead of David Fincher. As we saw earlier this year in a Slate satire presenting the Super Bowl as made by famous directors, Wes Anderson and Quentin Tarantino are favorite auteurs to try and mimic. Anderson has also been the butt of other similar gags, including one involving Spider-Man, and Michael Bay has always b...

    Brief Thoughts on "The Next Three Days."

    Paul Haggis is not a man without talent, but he has had an uneasy time figuring out how to apply it. The embarrassing Oscar orgy for "Crash" validated his fundamentally simplistic composition of American racism, making Academy voters' bias toward themes rather than artistry more transparent than ever. His facile dramaturgy struck me as an unintentional farce about the racist in all of us, as if the Zucker brothers tried to spoof "Do the Right Thing" and came up dry. Perhaps in response to such vitriolic responses, Haggis took an overly restrained approach for his directorial follow-up, "In the Valley of Elah," resulting in a lifeless story ma...

    Oh, the many faces of Natalie Portman. On the one hand, she recently told David Poland in an interview that she's very careful about the choices she makes onscreen as she doesn't want to end up edited into hand moisturizer fodder on sites like Mr. Skin (or worse).
