    FUTURES | "This Chair Is Not Me" Director Andy Taylor Smith

    British photographer Andy Taylor Smith was at the SilverDocs fest this June for the world premiere of his first film, the short "This Chair is Not Me." By the end of popular documentary event held annually in Silver Springs, Maryland, "Chair" won the Sterling Award for Best Short Film. Smith's first foray into filmmaking was a natural progression, citing his work in photography projects, which he feels, often took on narrative elements. The film itself centers around a pivotal moment in the life of Alan Martin, a dancer with cerebral palsy who gives workshops and performances, played by newcomer Andre Mahjouri. Smith tells his story re-enac...

    Tim Burton Turns to Twitter.

    Tim Burton is not crazy about the Internet. He suggested as much to me when I interviewed him last year shortly after a trailer for "Alice in Wonderland" prematurely leaked online. He misses the days when an audience could discover most of a movie's surprises only once it hit the big screen. But Burton has also been aware of the new storytelling possibilities enabled by the web, as his Flash-animated "Stainboy" series demonstrated when he first launched it ten years ago. And now he's turning to Twitter for his latest installment, a high-concept approach to narrative that finds participants energetically drawing on their own perceptions of wh...

    New Look At Michelle Williams As Marilyn Monroe In 'My Week With Marilyn'

    Actress Talks Taking On Iconic Role For whatever reason (perhaps a sudden influx of late-night cable repeats of "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes"...), Marilyn Monroe is somewhat in vogue.

    film review: King's Speech

    I sometimes recoil when people start spreading Oscar buzz about a movie I haven’t seen—or even had a chance to see—yet, but I’m willing to forgive this year’s campaign for The King’s Speech because it’s such a terrific movie. There are times when I look around me and get the feeling that civilizatio...

    Documentary On Riot Grrl Kathleen Hanna In The Works

    If you were a fan of punk rock during the early 1990s, there's no way you could have missed the noise coming out of the Pacific Northwest. An underground feminist movement known as riot grrl gripped the scene, calling for great accessibility for women and it spawned a creative outpouring with zines, art and activism all aimed at giving women a voice. And of course, there was the music. Bands like Bratmobile, Excuse 17, Heavens to Betsy, Huggy Bear, Sleater-Kinney and Team Dresch contributed to the outpouring of female-led acts -- some more notable and memorable than others -- but none would have the widespread impact and acclaim of Bikini Kil...
