    Ari Folman's Waltz with Bashir Follow-Up is The Congress, Starring Robin Wright

    Ever since Ari Folman told me about adapting Stanislaw Lem's 1971 sci-fi novel The Futurological Congress, I've been excited by his central premise--which is not that of the novel-- of a gorgeous American actress on the cusp of losing her movie star luster who sells her likeness to Hollywood and can...

    Weinsteins May Lose Miramax Deal, Kerrey Mulls MPAA, IFC and Sony on Cannes Buying Spree

    I'm sitting in a JFK airport restaurant charging my computer, my BlackBerry and my iPod, steeling myself for another long flight. I flew into NY a month ago, so I have to fly back to LA from here, too. Sigh.

    CANNES REVIEW | Wrong Place, Wrong Time: Ken Loach's "Route Irish"

    Ken Loach's "Route Irish" may suffer from flat performances and an overwrought, polemically-motivated plot, but there's no denying its basic power as targeted polemic. The movie follows Fergus (Mark Womack), a disgruntled Iraq war veteran whose best pal Frankie dies overseas before the beginning of ...
