    Leo Plays J. Edgar: What Didn't We Know?

    J. Edgar Hoover had a fascinating life: wire-tapping unsuspecting Americans, using the dirt on politicians’ personal lives to keep his job as head of the FBI for nearly half a century, reorganizing the Agency and bringing it into the modern age of forensics, being way too close to his Mom -- and those are just the facts, never mind the gossipy details about wearing women’s clothes in private and his murky relationship with his second-in-command in the Agency, Clyde Tolson. So there is absolutely no excuse for "J. Edgar," Clint Eastwood’s disappointingly conventional biopic, to be so yawn-inducing.

    “African versus African American: Healing The Sibling Rivalry” (Project Fund-Raising)

    I thought we’d written about this doc before, but I can’t find any entries on it. So I’m either going crazy or blind; not good one way or the other… anyway, the documentary project is called African versus African American: Healing The Sibling Rivalry, a controversial film by Peres Owino, that addresses the “little known tension that exists between Africans and African Americans.”

    Clive Owen To Star In Paul Schrader Penned Action Flick 'Recall'

    It is difficult to know where Clive Owen’s loyalties lie in the war of art versus commerce. He’s acted in garbage like “King Arthur,” “Derailed,” and “Shoot ‘Em Up,” but on the other hand, he earned an Oscar nominated for 2004’s “Closer.” When Owen does collect a Jason Statham-sized paycheck, it is often while working for great directors, who would never consider hiring a guy like Statham: Alfonso Cuarón (“Children of Men”), Spike Lee (“Inside Man”) or Tom Twyker (“The International”—actually, Twyker would probably work with Statham), and when Owen actually does act in a Jason Statham movie (this year’s “Killer Elite”), he makes sure that Robert De Niro is there to help take the hit.

    'The Artist' & 'Kid With A Bike' Stars Jean Dujardin & Cecile De France Team For 'Mobius'

    A lot of foreign actors take their Hollywood success and run straight to the set of a blockbuster studio pic. It’s nice to see that Cannes/Weinstein Company darling Jean Dujardin - the star of the crowdpleasing, awards season player “The Artist” - isn’t waiting around to see if Sony needs an additional villain for the “Green Hornet” sequel, but has instead signed onto French auteur Eric Rochant’s thriller-romance “Mobius.” Joining him will be
