    "True Adolescents" Is a Brutally Honest Coming of Age Flick that Puts "The Future" to Shame

    There’s something inherently depressing about a coming of age film with a protagonist over thirty, or at least there should be. I have no desire to condemn everyone beyond their twenties, in a band and having trouble making rent. Yet if someone makes a movie about a thirtysomething rocker with no ob...

    Has It Comes To This? Paul Schrader To Direct Bret Easton Ellis-Penned Shark Hostage Pic 'Bait'

    As much as we love Paul Schrader, it's tough to admit that the acclaimed screenwriter and director has been on a bit of a slide. It has been nearly a decade since the excellent "Auto Focus" and since then, he's directed three films: the compromised and troubled production of "Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist," the escort thriller "The Walker" and the WWII sexual fetish pic (really) "Adam Resurrected."

    Forest Whitaker & Anthony Mackie Starring In Voodoo Horror Flick 'Vipaka'

    Sanaa Lathan & Mike Epps Also On BoardIn theory, winning an Oscar is meant to provide a boost to your career. In theory. But somehow, the four and a half years since Forest Whitaker took home a golden man for his portrayal of Idi Amin in "The Last King of Scotland" have provided a series of diminishing returns. Aside from a handful of exceptions, both his Oscar-bait films like "Hurricane Season" and "The Great Debaters" and would-be commercial properties like "Street Kings" and "Repo Men" tanked, while an alarming number of his pictures seem to be skipping theatrical release entirely, and he spent last year leading the swiftly-cancelled CBS p...
