    Linkin Park Noisemaker Mike Shinoda To Score TIFF Midnight Madness Hit 'The Raid'

    Not long after a raucous midnight showing at TIFF's Midnight Madness section, actioner "The Raid," which picked up excellent reviews from the festival, is set to have a new sound, with Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda coming on board, according to The Hollywood Reporter, to craft the picture's soundscape. Hailing from Indonesia (although helmed by Welsh director Gareth Huw Evans), "The Raid" follows the conflict between a SWAT team and a gang of mobsters armed to the teeth and trained in martial arts. Obviously really challenging stuff. It's from the makers of the martial arts film "Merantau," which featured a similarly threadbare plot as an excuse...

    Torchwood: Miracle Day, Episode 10, The Blood Line, SEASON FINALE

    David Chute bids Torchwood: Miracle Day a fond farewell. Honestly.An antipodal cleft pierces the earth, along a line drawn from Shanghai to Buenos Aires. Into this cleft the blood of an immortal (you know who) is introduced, and it has to be at both poles simultaneously. The effect of this transfusi...

    Domestic Preview For 'Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy' Is A Thicker Trailer, Bolder, Fly

    Check out these slick-looking dudes in the "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" trailer. No one trusts anyone, no one is comfortable even walking around the corner, and everyone's got some sort of wicked coat. This feels like the sort of paranoid drunken nightmare someone has after passing out underneath ...

    Toronto Day 3- We Need to Talk About Kevin and Think of Me

    I woke up thinking about Tilda Swinton's blank face from We Need to Talk About Kevin. It is amazing how much expressiveness there can be in a blank stare. The movie directed bravely by Lynne Ramsey is an adaptation of the Lionel Shriver novel of the same name. Like Ramsey, Shriver is not a shy a...

    Aleksandr Sokurov's 'Faust' Wins Golden Lion At Venice Film Festival

    Michael Fassbender Takes Best Actor, Chinese Surprise Film 'People Mountain People Sea' Wins DirectorWe might have abandoned the Lido a few days ago, but somehow festival organizers felt able to go on with the final awards ceremony without us this evening. With a jury led by Darren Aronofsky that also included David Byrne, Todd Haynes, Mario Martone, André Téchiné, Ejia-Liisa Ahtila and Alba Rorwacher, it was anyone's game, although for much of the week, talk had pegged Steve McQueen's "Shame" and Yorgos Lanthimos' "Alps" as potential front-runners for the big prize, the Golden Lion. However, the winner turned out to be something of a surpris...

    TIFF '11 Review: Cross-Dressing 'Albert Nobbs' A Stodgily Straight Drama

    For Glenn Close, "Albert Nobbs" has been a long time coming for its big screen incarnation. Based on a short story by Irish author George Moore, it was first adapted into an off-Broadway production by Simone Benmussa with Close in the lead role that won her an Obie award. The actress has been a driving force behind the film adaptation, shepherding the project for 15 years, taking on the responsibilities of a producer and even co-writing the script with Man Booker prize-winning author John Banville and Gabriella Prekop. So yes, it's passion project for Close and it's unfortunate that none of that enthusiasm manages to find its way to the big s...
