    Dennis Hopper On Display

    Even as Hollywood survivor Dennis Hopper battles prostate cancer, he is being celebrated in a multimedia show that’s touring the world. I caught a glimpse of it on my recent trip to Australia, where the exhibition called Dennis Hopper and The New Hollywood is on display through April 25 at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image in Melbourne. The touring show of photographs and artwork by Hopper is accompanied by a coffee-table book of the same name, published by Flammarion in conjunction with the ACMI and La Cinematheque Francaise. The book was on sale in the Centre’s lovely gift shop, but I didn’t want to lug it ho...

    Rotterdam Goes "Red White & Blue" with No Pretense

    Here I am at the Rotterdam International Film Festival (IFFR), staying in the Hotel Manhattan. Chicest boutique lodgings: Hotel New York. This working-class city, mostly rebuilt after severe strafing by the German Air Force nearly 70 years ago, was home to the Holland American Line, which transporte...

    Vanity Fair's Latest Young Actresses Cover: Stewart, Cornish, Mulligan

    A swatch of pale loveliness, here are this year's Vanity Fair photos of Hollywood ingenues. I believe the mag has done Kristen Stewart (Twilight) and Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia!), at least, before. Last week, Stewart was in Sundance supporting The Runaways and Welcome to the Rileys; Rebecca Hall sto...

    In Search of a Sundance Purpose: A Fest Wrap-Up

    Breakouts and bombs collided in Park City over the past week and a half, but that's part of the reason the Sundance Film Festival still matters. However, as the conversation shifts from a specific dialogue about movies to questions about the purpose of the festival itself, battle lines have been dra...

    iPOP | Sundance Fest: A Picture is Worth 1000 Words!

    I counted about 45 invitations to Sundance parties, dinners and receptions for the 2010 event, which came to its final conclusion Sunday. For some of the parties, however, merely receiving an invitation and RSVPing does not guarantee admission. IFC Films, for instance, had a party at one of the stil...

    Spielberg Heating Up Gershwin and Quinto

    It looks like DreamWorks and Steven Spielberg are heating up on Doug Wright's script for a planned biopic of composer George Gershwin. Several biopics--including Tony Kushner's Lincoln and a still-in-development look at the life of Martin Luther King--are in the works, and there's also the ten-part ...

    Weekend B.O.: In Seventh Week, Avatar Beats Edge of Darkness

    At the weekend box office, Avatar grossed another $30-million, beating all comers for the 7th weekend in a row, including Mel Gibson's return to the screen in thriller Edge of Darkness, which despite earning mixed reviews scored $17 million. Avatar only needs a little more than $6 million to overtak...

    John Lasseter, Toy Guru

    James Cameron may be the King of the World when it comes to box-office receipts, but I haven’t seen him personally selling Avatar merchandise. On the other hand, Pixar’s John Lasseter is now appearing in a series of videos at the Disney Store online to introduce and promote a new high-end line of Toy Story toys and collectibles. A cynic could write this off as nothing more than a commercial ploy, and it’s certainly meant to sell merchandise, but what makes it work is that Lasseter is in fact a dedicated toy collector. When he says that he buys two of everything—one to keep in its package, in mint condition, and the other to play with—he isn’t...
