    Everyone in Their 30s Must See This Film

    Once in a while a film comes along that speaks to a generation. Kate Aselton's "The Freebie" is not one of those films. Instead it's a work that speaks to any and every generation as its members enter a certain age. I want to generalize this period as one's 30s, but it could possibly come about earlier depending on the individual. All I can say is that I'm in my early 30s and it was the perfect thing to come about right now.

GQ calls it "one of the most endlessly rewatchable American movies ever made," and dubs it the "greatest gangster film of all time." Here's a taste from their interviews: Ray Liotta (Henry Hill): For twenty years now, there's not a day that goes by that I don't hear somebody mention GoodFellas. Unless I stay home all night.

    Can Joaquin Phoenix's Career Be Saved? Watch Letterman Tonight!

    Suddenly, after two years of retirement, we are seeing photos of a clean shaven, slim, Joaquin Phoenix amid reports of movie deals in the offing. Will he join Leonardo DiCaprio in Clint Eastwood's Hoover as FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover's love interest Clyde Tolson? (UPDATE: The answer is no, as producer Rob Lorenz denies that Eastwood has expressed any interest in Phoenix for the role.) Or land a role opposite Jennifer Garner in Disney's The Odd Life of Timothy Green? Or play a foot fetishist in Steve Shainberg's latest off-beat narrative? His appearance on David Letterman tonight will be crucial to removing his recent druggy natty-haired image.
