    The Greatest Lie Ever Told To The Black Filmmaker

    It would seem that the more different people tell the same lie, the easier it is for others to believe it as the truth.

    Contest Giveaway: Richard Press' Documentary 'Bill Cunningham New York' On DVD

    We'll put it quite simply: Richard Press' documentary "Bill Cunningham New York" is one of the very best documentaries we've seen this year. Already ranked on our mid-2011 best-of-the-year list, the film follows longtime fashion icon and New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham who Sunday readers might know from his weekly "On The Street" column. Armed with nothing more than a camera and beat-up bicycle, Cunningham is the last of a one-of-a-kind breed, a man who prefers real people in real life to the runways and captures his subjects with a clear, sympathetic, uncynical and unironic eye. If the film passed you by, not to worry, as we've got a few DVD copies to give away to some lucky readers, but first, here's the official synopsis:

    Bette Midler & Bailee Madison Join Billy Crystal for ‘Us & Them’

    Director Andy Fickman isn’t known for his deft skills at directing comedy, as the Amanda Bynes vehicle “She’s the Man” and last year’s already forgotten “You Again” bear out, but his next film “Us & Them” (which, we suppose completes an unofficial trilogy of films with bland, pronoun-heavy titles) can’t be knocked for lacking talent. It already boasts Billy Crystal returning from the wilderness after “Analyze That,” and now, Variety reports that Bette Midler -- absent from our screens since the nonsensical remake of George Cukor’s “The Women” committed gynocide at the box-office in 2008 worse than Charlotte Gainsbourg in “Antichrist” -- and precocious “Just Go with It” and "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" star Bailee Madison have also joined the cast.
