    - Julia Stiles is alive and well. In fact, she's a busy girl. Her last big-screen role in The Bourne Ultimatum was much like her recent career: quiet and timid. So what has she been doing?

    Dear Andrea Peyser,

    I'm tired. And I almost decided to just ignore the homophobic, ignorant and considerably ridiculous story you wrote for The New York Post this weekend. But as the hours have winded down since I first read it amidst a jet-lag induced 4am wakeup call this morning, I feel this is more or less impossibl...

    Congratulations, indieWIRE

    In my Berlin daze, I forgot to blog a happy birthday message to my dearest employer and friend, indieWIRE, who turned 14 last week. But since today is an even bigger day for ol' iW, I figured I do so belatedly before additionally congratulating them on some big news: Peter Bogdanovich will soon launch his own site as part of the indieWIRE Network of blogs and websites (called, yes, "Blogdanovich"), AND Chris Campbell has just joined us as the lead writer for the new Spout.com, a site that iW acquired earlier this year. A warm welcome to both. Additionally, indieWIRE has formally unveiled a number of new and enhanced ways to read our content ...

    Notes on the Midnight Ramble.

    Anyone familiar with Martin Scorsese's 1978 documentary "The Last Waltz," which showcases The Band's seminal Thanksgiving Day finale performance, has heard about the Midnight Ramble. In a brief scene (embedded above), drummer Levon Helm explains the appeal of traveling medicine shows that would play late into the night, and as "the jokes would get a little juicier and the prettiest dancer would really get down," many of the more adventurous rhythms and underground mentalities of early rock and roll were born. Helm's version of the Midnight Ramble takes place several times a year at his cozy home recording ...

    Goodbye To Berlin

    I haven't exactly been super blogger the past two weeks, and with good reason... I've been in lazing around in Berlin and enjoying the world's most pleasurable city for all it has to offer. Sadly, after two days of no sleep in a poorly planned Berlin->London->Glasgow->Toronto airport tour of pure he...

    Movies That Don't Exist Yet: Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton Biopic 'Furious Love'

    I'm not particularly interested in spreading rumors here at Spout, but occasionally I'd like to address a film project, at its inception or some other point in its development, that is worth thinking about. Even if it never exists, the possibility of an adaptation by Mike Nichols of Sam Kashner and ...
