"And one of them was called 'The Wrestler.' [It] came out of the idea that there had been so many boxin...

    indieWIRE CRITICS' POLL '08 | Ed Gonzalez

    This is the latest ballot in indieWIRE's 2008 Critics Poll, continuing the tradition of a national survey of critics by calling attention to the year's best -- and, in many cases, most overlooked -- films, providing a meaningful counterpoint to much of the year-end hoopla. Note that some lists are unranked at the discretion of the critic. For all categories except Best Undistributed Film, eligible feature films had first-run theatrical engagements in the U.S. during 2008. Films without a U.S. distributor, screened anywhere (festival circuit, one-off screenings, etc.), are eligible in the Best Undistributed Film category. The full list of crit...

    iW BOT *UPDATE* | "Torino," "Doubt" Lead Parade of Oscar Hopefuls, "Che"'s "Roadshow" Plays To Sold

    The third-to-last weekend of 2008 saw three films open to per-theater-averages of over $30,000, and three more seeing strong holdover numbers. According to final numbers from Rentrak, leading the extremely competitive pack was Clint Eastwood's "Gran Torino," which on six screens averaged $45,287 (the year's second best PTA behind last weekend's "Frost/Nixon"), while John Patrick Shanley's "Doubt" averaged $33,815 from 15. Perhaps more impressive, though, was IFC's "Roadshow" release of Steven Soderbergh's "Che."
