    Go See Azazel Jacobs' "Terri" -- Opening Today

    I have a film series in NYC. Courtesy of Nick Quested and Goldcrest, about once a month, I show a film I feel people need to support. I send emails to about 700 people to fill the 60 seat theater. It's free, although now I ask regulars to buy wine for the afterwards schmooze. The filmmakers have...

    "Larry Crowne" Embarrasses Everyone Involved, Including the Audience

    Nia Vardalos’ and Tom Hanks’ script for “Larry Crowne” is a painful and embarrassing experiment in light-hearted comedy. This ridiculous disaster tries so hard to be funny and falls so violently flat to the floor that you almost want to give it a hug as the credits roll. The feeling is even more pronounced by the complete lack of emotion evoked by the characters themselves, and the plot moves forward in mindless and predictable fashion. Never for a single moment is the inevitable happy ending in doubt, no matter how desperately Vardalos and Hanks try to create narrative tension and real conflict. At times heart-wrenchingly terrible while in o...

    Christopher Nolan Producing Supernatural Thriller For Terminally Underrated Director Keith Gordon

    Becoming a true titan of cinema, of which there are few, the kind who can get anything greenlit, who take critical plaudits and giant box office success in equal measure, isn't easy. Even Martin Scorsese and Stanley Kubrick relied on studio patronage to get their films out, leaving... let's say Alfr...

    Sweet Baby Jesus: 'What to Expect When You're Expecting' Adds Anna Kendrick & Chris Rock

    James Cameron memorably imparted a distasteful analogy when he was doing the press rounds for “Avatar” and journalists would ask what the filmmaker-cum-megalomaniac’s next project would be. “You don't ask a woman if she wants to have more kids when she's crowning.” snapped the tousled-haired millionaire. As unpleasant as the image of Jim Cameron splayed on a doctor’s table waiting for his gold-plated “baby” to drop from his loins undoubtedly is, it’s an appropriate metaphor for another trend that’s crowning for real: bland self-help non-fiction books nonsensically translated into fiction films.
