    Ryan Kwanten To Star In Charles Manson Pic 'The Family' Directed By 'Machinist' Writer Scott Kosar

    While "The Machinist" has its fans, we're not too big on the film and other than making Christian Bale lose all kinds of weight, the attention foisted on that film is sort of unfounded.

On his past Oscar nomination for Half Nelson, he says: "it feels weird…not that long ago that I was on a TV show called Young Hercules in which I had a fake tan and wore tight leather pants and fought imaginary monsters."

    film review: Nora's Will

    Indie and foreign films have a tougher time than ever in today’s marketplace, which is why I want to call your attention to an import that’s truly worth seeing—even though you may not have heard much about it. Nora’s Will has won a number of film festival awards, which got my attention. I also put considerable stock in Menemsha Films, the small, dedicated distributor that has taken on its U.S. release. They tell me that business actually increased after its first week at the Paris Theater in Manhattan because of strong word-of-mouth; now it’s opening at a number of Laemmle Theaters in Los Angeles, with other cities to follow in the weeks and ...
