    Watch: Mélanie Laurent Puts A Spell On You In Dior Ad Directed By John Cameron Mitchell

    Yes, Dior continues to pair great directors and beautiful leading ladies for spots to promote their various fragrances and clothing lines. This year has already seen a spot for Miss Dior Cherie starring Natalie Portman and directed by Sofia Coppola and Charlize Theron taking it off and putting it on in the Jean-Jacques Annaud directed J'Adore Dior ad. But perhaps no helmer has been busier lately for the famed fashion house than John Cameron Mitchell. He's already directed the short films Lady Grey London and Lady Grey Moscow with Marion Cotillard and now he's got a new spot with another new face on the label.

    NYFF: Grant Gee's "Patience (After Sebald)"

    The title Patience (After Sebald) will remind readers of the late W. G. Sebald—whose unclassifiable 1995 book The Rings of Saturn (translated into English in 1998 by Michael Hulse) is the ostensible subject of Grant Gee’s new documentary—of the author’s book-length poem After Nature. And true to this association, the movie treats Sebald with great solemnity, as a sort of Stonehenge-like ruin in and of himself, posthumously trying to make him something like a novelty subsection of the great themes of his own antiquarian German poetry and prose—Civilization, History, Memory. Read Benjamin Mercer's review of Patience (After Sebald).

    Soul Brothers: Jonathan Levine's "50/50"

    The title of 50/50, a comedy about a young man diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, refers to main character Adam’s chances of living. It also happens to be a fair measurement of the balance the film strives to achieve: 50 percent heartfelt drama, 50 percent raunchy bromance. The earnestness comes from Adam (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), the smut from his best friend, Kyle (Seth Rogen), and the two play a fine game of give-and-take evening out one another's extremes the way healthy couples do. Like 2009’s Funny People, another Rogen-affiliated “comedy” about a character with an unusual type of cancer, 50/50 is a tough sell, and its marketing team has been working hard, canvassing YouTube and Facebook with banners and quizzes helping to determine who’s your “Go-to Buddy.”

    Amanda Knox at the Movies

    Well, Lifetime movie Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy, starring Hayden Panettierre and Marcia Gay Harden, came and went this spring without much fuss, although it was reportedly less than accurate. After protests from Knox's parents, Lifetime removed a controversial recreation of the murder. (The channel wasted no time rebroadcasting the TV film with updated title cards). But with the unfolding drama of the controversial American exchange student convicted of a 2007 murder in Italy still in the news, there seems room for a proper movie version.
