    Poster of the Week

    "They got little hands/Little eyes/They walk around/Tellin' great big lies . . . They got grubby little fingers/And dirty little minds/They're gonna get you every time." Surely, Randy Newman didn't have in mind this poster for William Castle's long forgotten Deliciously Grotesque . . . oops, I mean, sorry, I need my bifocals . . oh, right, Shanks, when he penned his 1977 hit "Short People," but now that I've seen this image I doubt I'll ever be able to separate the two. If there's anything stranger than Newman's endlessly controversial (really?!) ode to all the little people out there, it's certainly this odd bit of business starring none o...

    film review: Solitary Man

    Michael Douglas has nothing to fear, so he’s perfectly willing to play a role other actors might run away from: a 60-ish New Yorker who’s a complete and utter louse.

    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 ...

    Russell Crowe: Angry Star Ponders What Next?

    In my latest Career Watch column, I ponder the future of the latest Robin Hood, Russell Crowe. Crowe is one of a trio of angry male stars, including Sean Penn (undergoing anger management treatment) and Ryan Gosling. They're good, very good. They're not conventionally handsome. They're capable of gr...

    CANNES REVIEW | Media Stars Gone Natural: Doug Liman's "Fair Game"

The lyrics - "I'm useless/But not for l...
