    Plus Director Spencer Susser & Star On Their Unique Central CharacterAs far as family dramas go, “Hesher” is somewhat of a different breed. The story of a father and young son suffering the recent loss of their wife and mother, things seem to take a turn for the worse, when TJ (the son) accidentally brings an anarchist metal head into his grandmother's home and his family's life. While we weren't taken by “Hesher” as a whole, this writer found the film’s namesake, and chaotic center, to be one of the more fascinating characters introduced on screen in a while – and certainly another card to add to the stack of notable performances from Joseph...

    Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton, Katherine Heigl & Amanda Seyfried Starring In 'Gently Down The Stream'

    There's a basic appeal to the idea of the team-up movie. Since the dawn of fan fiction, people have dreamed of combining their favorite heroes, and it's proved to be lucrative big-screen niche, from "Godzilla vs.King Kong" and "Alien vs. Predator" to next summer's "The Avengers."

    Review: 'Cameraman' Is A Warm Tribute To A Genius Visualist

    So you're at a bar, nearly exceeding your alcohol tolerance, when suddenly you find yourself in a conversation with an elder. Chalk it up to liquor-induced time traveling, but however the talk began is of no importance because this charmer is full of exceeding knowledge and incredible stories. Now imagine this intelligent, seen-it-all storyteller was actually the late Jack Cardiff, cinematographer of "War and Peace," "The Red Shoes," "Black Narcissus," and "The African Queen" just to name a few. Quite a night for a film fanatic, huh? While this ever happening is certainly out of the question, Craig McCall's "Cameraman: The Life and Work of Ja...
