    Terry Gilliam To Shoot Short Film 'The Wholly Family' In Italy In January

    While he spent most of the year struggling to mount his cursed project "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote," Terry Gilliam certainly hasn't been sitting idle, rocking a webcast for Arcade Fire in August, directing an energy drink mini-movie thing “The Legend Of Hallowdega,” and he’s currently gearing up...

    An Alternative Top Ten for 2010.

    Today indieWIRE announced a group of top ten lists submitted by industry friends and contributors to the site. Since I already listed my favorites from 2010, I decided to offer a separate list of titles that in another year could just as easily serve as my favorites. After the jump, the alternative...

    2010 In Reverse: 7 What-Could-Have-Been Films

    Projects come and projects go. Actors and directors join or spearhead them and then sometimes they leave. Sometimes it's not personal, sometimes it's downright acrimonious. We're not crying over spilled milk or anything, but there were a handful of high profile films in 2010 that started one way, then headed in an entirely different direction. In some cases it was for the better, in some cases for the worse, in some cases it just doesn't make much difference to anyone, but as we were thinking of the bigger news items of 2010, we thought it would be fun to look back on the history of some of the films that finally made their way to the big scr...

    Remembering “Hollywood And The Stars”

    It’s that time when we look back and remember the people who’ve pass on during 2010. (If you haven’t seen Turner Classic Movies’ always-incredible memorial segment, you should: www.tcm.com) One of those who left our midst was producer David L. Wolper. When I read his obituary in August, I knew it wo...

    Restored Version of The Leopard for New Year's: How Did It Survive the 1963 Trailer?

    What better way to begin a new year than watching The Leopard, Luchino Visconti's ever-enthralling saga about a proud aristocratic family trying not to crumble when Garibaldi's army lands on its doorstep, marching toward a unified Italy and the 20th century? The epic is at once a magnificent escape ...

    First Look At Tomar-Re In 'Green Lantern'

    Next year will be superhero movie heaven for fans of the genre with "Thor," "Captain America: The First Avenger" and "Green Lantern" all swooping into theaters next spring or summer. But with three big budget franchise films all gunning for the same audience within a few months of each other, we figure at least one of them will underperform, and if we were betting men, we'd put our money on "Green Lantern." The first trailer for the film was shockingly dull with some questionable CGI and overall tone that we couldn't quite get with. And, for this writer who is not totally familiar with the Green Lantern, it seems that the entire universe is a...

    Broken Blossoms

    Between the ages of 18 and 31, I saw thirty-four films directed by David Wark Griffith, generally acknowledged as the first great American filmmaker, if not the first truly epochal director in the world. As a child I had seen perhaps one or two of his movies when my father took me by the hand to the Museum of Modern Art. But in those years during which I went from enthusiast to student to apprentice to professional, I realized that, as is often said, it was in fact true that between 1908 (thirteen years after the first brief projected films) and 1925—-D.W. Griffith had pretty much done it all: established the entire popular vocabulary of ci...

    Watch: Trailer For 'Chalet Girl' Is Cinematic Equivalent Of Skiing Into A Tree

    We've been fans of rising star Felicity Jones ever since seeing her on stage in Polly Stenham's "That Face" a few years back, and she's only gone from strength to strength since -- she made our list of 2010 Breakthrough Performances for being the sole high point of Ricky Gervais' "Cemetery Junction....

    'Uncharted 3' Video Game Director Says David O. Russell & Mark Wahlberg's Details On The Film Untrue

    Well, this is a weird one. In the run up to the release of "The Fighter," director David O. Russell and star Mark Wahlberg openly and gladly talked about what appeared to be their forthcoming collaboration on the big screen version of the popular video game "Uncharted." But now, according to "Unchar...
