    At the Full Frame Festival, Archives Are the Future

    Documentary cinema tends to balance the past and present. A few months after Charles Ferguson's “Inside Job” received the Academy Award for best documentary, the 2011 edition of the Full Frame Documentary Festival presented a strong program that drew heavily on themes of poverty, struggle and injust...

    Tim Roth Planning A Return To Directing With 'Turning Stones,' Wants Sam Rockwell For The Lead

    In the admittedly tiny sub-genre of harrowing-late-1990s-domestic-dramas-starring-Ray-Winstone-and-directed-by-well-respected-British-character-actors-who-have-yet-to-make-a-second-film, Gary Oldman's "Nil By Mouth" just has the edge -- underrated to this day, the film showed an assured hand from Oldman, and has two towering performances, by Winstone and Kathy Burke, the latter of whom picked up Best Actress at Cannes in 1997. But that's not to undervalue Tim Roth's "The War Zone," an adaptation of Alexander Stuart's novel examining incest and sexual abuse in a Devonshire family -- it's incredibly powerful stuff, and it's a shame that Roth ha...

    Joshua Jackson Joins Rebecca Hall & Bruce Willis In Stephen Frears' Gambling Pic 'Lay The Favorite'

    Speaking of "Fringe," the show's biggest name, former "Dawson's Creek" star Joshua Jackson, looks to be using his summer hiatus from the show productively.

    'Fringe' Writers Monica Owusu-Breen & Alison Schapker Rewriting Secret J.J. Abrams Project 'Zanbato'

    Have you been watching Fox's J.J. Abrams-produced sci-fi drama "Fringe?" The show's position in the so-called "Friday night death slot," and its subsequent ratings plunge (ratings which were not that high to begin with), suggest that you're not. But if you're any kind of a fan of genre TV you really...

    New Trailer & Photos Of 'The Help' Starring Emma Stone, Viola Davis & Bryce Dallas Howard

    There's sort of two ways to look at DreamWorks' upcoming civil rights drama, "The Help." Set in the 1960s during the civil rights movement, the picture is either (or probably) a) an Oscar contender, b) a literate-minded chick flick (this is a starved audience and Oprah will be endorsing this, you can be sure of it) or c) an interesting mix of the two that may have some worthwhile elements such as, say, "Julie & Julia." August isn't much of an Oscar month so we're leaning away from a), however, the respectable "Julie & Julia" came out in August of 2009 and it earned Meryl Streep a much-earned 16th Oscar nomination (she didn't win, but she's wo...

    Tina Fey Bossypants Excerpts: The Mother's Prayer for Its Daughter

    In case you live under a rock, 30 Rock creator-star Tina Fey's new book, Bossypants, is getting good reviews like this one in the LAT:But any concern that Fey, like so many before her, has been ruined by fame is quickly dispelled by "Bossypants," a book that reminds you why Fey has succeeded where so many have failed — because she is precise, professional and hilarious. At first, "Bossypants" appears to be just more of the same — there's Fey on the cover looking fabulous but not owning it (her airbrushed face is framed by two large and hairy male arms) and the back is filled with fake and self-deprecating quotes regarding her appearance and t...
