    Women to Watch: Helga Stephenson

    Helga StephensonWhen I first began attending the Toronto Festival of Festivals as it was called in 1985, Helga was its executive director and she introduced me to her second in command, Piers Handling who has taken good care of us ever since. We still meet in Toronto and in December at the Havana Film Festival in Cuba. A few days after that infamous day September 11, she invited the stranded Americans to her home for comfort. For a while she disappeared into the corporate Viacom in Toronto, or would reappear wearing various different hats. Now she has been appointed interim CEO of the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television, replacing Sara Morton.

    Great Things Come in Pairs: 'Yogi Bear 2' Announced

    Whatever he gets up to in his spare time – shilling "Ghostbusters 3" and its bizarre array of potential female leads like a crazed beggar man, contemplating selling his organs on Amazon Marketplace, downing a glass of whiskey and sleeping pills whenever a re-run of “Spies Like Us” hits the airwaves – Dan Aykroyd can take solace in the news that at least “Yogi Bear 2” is becoming a reality. While many were decrying last year’s original as a prelude to nuclear holocaust, the film itself managed to net over $200 million worldwide and hence Coming Soon reports that humanity is getting treated to take another suckle on the smoky teat of Yogi. Let this be a lesson to exhausted parents with diminished expectations everywhere.

    !Women Art Revolution directed by Lynn Hershman Leeson Opens in NYC Today

    There are not many films that are able to show the development of a true revolution and Women Art Revolution is one of them. It shows how feminism affected women's art and how art affected feminism. The art and the interviews that make up this extraordinary film are a history -- or a herstory -- of our time. Most of the women in the film you haven't heard of, but their work has changed our culture and I thank them for it.

    Ray Winstone & Gillian Anderson To Star In Sexed-Up 'Great Expectations' For Brit TV

    A zeitgeisty role like Agent Dana Scully may cast a long shadow, but Gillian Anderson seems determined not to have the first line of her obituary read “that redheaded gal off 'The X-Files.'" Lurching in recent years between respectable British TV costume dramas and mirthless crime fare (“Straightheads” won’t be one to tell the grandkids about), Anderson is now in talks to take the most iconic role in a new adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic novel “Great Expectations” as Miss Haversham, alongside eternal Cockney bruiser Ray Winstone as the novel's duplicitous Magwitch. Like everything else nowadays, though, don’t expect this to be your mother’s rainy Sunday afternoon "Great Expectations". Oh no, The Daily Mail reports that this three-part miniseries threatens to be “sexually charged”.

    SPOILER ALERT! Don't Read This If You Don't Want To Know What Happens In "X-Men: First Class"

    Having already seen the much anticipated X-Men: First Class , which I'm sure many will like (I know it must be a generational thing, but I still don't get these comic book movies. I stopped reading them when I was 12).

    James Gray & Joaquin Phoenix Reteam For 'Low Life'; Marion Cotillard & Jeremy Renner To Co-Star

    Teaming up on three films -- "The Yards," "We Own The Night" and "Two Lovers" -- there hasn't been any director/actor pairing in recent American cinema as rewarding as that between James Gray and Joaquin Phoenix. However, circa the actor's stunt during the press rounds for "Two Lovers" where he grew a Will Oldham-esque beard and declared he was starting a rap career, many wondered if that relationship was over. And despite what reports may have surfaced, Gray wasn't worried, saying as early as February 2009 that he was confident he would work with Phoenix again. Then in September of last year, it was revealed that he was in on the joke from the beginning. So the joke is over, Joaquin Phoenix needs to get back to work and the duo are pairing up for their fourth film. And they've got some fantastic talent to help them out.

    Sam Waterston Heads Back To TV For Aaron Sorkin's HBO Pilot

    They say there's no such thing as a job for life these days, but the cast of NBC's long-running procedural "Law & Order" must have thought they had the closest thing to one until the show was canceled last year, on the verge of its 20th season. But rather than slipping quietly away into retirement, 70-year-old Sam Waterston, who played District Attorney Jack McCoy on the show for a whopping sixteen years, across 368 episodes, has just booked a new gig, and he couldn't have asked for one with a better pedigree.
