    Interview Watch: Michelle Williams Talks Career, Harrison Ford on CGI, Gabriel Byrne on Catholicism

    - In their May issue, Interview Magazine asks Meek's Cutoff star Michelle Williams about her selective and seemingly wise career choices. Williams responds:"How do I say this? It’s like a mechanism in my life that runs on its own. When other things in my life don’t, and are broken and aren’t going well, for some reason my decision-making mechanism has a little engine of its own, and it’s fine. So I don’t overthink it. I’ve come to learn that the choices I labor over and go back and forth about and ask a million people for their opinions and make lists about...those are always the wrong choices. I’ve definitely made a couple of those, and that’s how I know now that it’s not the best way for me to decide…I don’t think of it as building, or really even a career. It’s just what appeals to me right now, without any real thought about how it’s going to affect my future, or even how it relates to my past work. I have faith in the fact that, as I change, so will the things that I’m interested in, as long as I keep up my own change."

    Watch: Weird, Kind Of Overwrought Clip From Tony Kaye's 'Detachment' With Adrien Brody

    Believe us, we're rooting for director Tony Kaye if only because he's had an uphill battle in Hollywood ever since "American History X." With his last two efforts being either ignored (the powerful abortion documentary "Lake Of Fire") or mired in film studio bankruptcy woes (the New Orleans thriller “Black Water Transit” starring Laurence Fishburne, Karl Urban and Brittany Snow) the guy could use a break. It's just too bad that his latest, the star-studded "Detachment" doesn't look like it will fit the bill.

    Watch The Q&A From "Swell Season" Screening at Tribeca

    Caught “The Swell Season” - the doc on "Once" stars Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova - at Tribeca last night... Ith almost feels like a sequel to “Once” - had the two main characters ended up getting together and forming a band (which is not entirely implausible). While “Once” was more or less a work of fiction, “The Swell Season” is actually documentary, even if the documentarians’ verite approach might make anyone unknowing think otherwise... More on the film here. Q&A below:
