    Eugene Hernandez: Good people & Good ideas.

    July 19, 2010: New York, NY --  A couple of weeks ago, on a quiet mid-week afternoon in California, I sat in a booth at the Beverly Hills Hotel's Polo Lounge with our CEO Rick Allen, indieWIRE's ad sales director James Israel and famous filmmaker Peter Bogdanovich. In between stories about Orson Wel...

    Remembering Character Actor James Gammon (1940-2010)

    While I was recalling "Major League" over the weekend, thinking back to when Tom Berenger looked better than he does in "Inception," another actor from the baseball comedy was being mourned in California. James Gammon, who played the part of Coach Lou Brown in two "Major League" films, died Friday o...

    Stiles in The Bell Jar, Pascal Talks Sky Falling, Breillat's Sleeping Beauty Debuts in Venice

    - 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...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Review: Salt

    They've figured out a pretty clever way to make Russian commies the bad guys in a contemporary thriller in “Salt,” with the long arm of red ruthlessness reaching from the grave to hammer Washington, D.C. where it hurts. Although the relentlessly paced spy vs spy story glosses over how a lone woman, ...

    Weekend Box Office: Inception Launches Strong, Sorcerer's Apprentice Flops

    Proving yet again that originality does not breed contempt at the box office, Christopher Nolan's Inception scored a strong opening weekend with $60 million, while Disney uber-producer Jerry Bruckheimer suffered his second b.o. dud this summer with Sorcerer's Apprentice. Anthony D'Alessandro does th...
