    IndieWIRE and all the News Outlets

    The vast sweep of changes in news media hits home for me because I'm at IndieWIRE. After my initial shock at Eugene's ending his 13 year career there, I am now elated with news of what's to come. Eugene's writing until 2 am everyday might end (lucky for him), but he has made an indelible mark on the New York independent film scene and will continue as the Lincoln Film Society begins to undergo its new transformation and as IndieWIRE, now with Anne Thompson as Editor at Large, and soon to name a new Editor in Chief (I am so curious!) goes through its own transformation. IndieWIRE was the first online indie film business voice to be heard.

    Oscar Watch: Hans Zimmer Talks Inception Score

    Oscar Watch: Hans Zimmer Talks Inception Score

    Christopher Nolan's Inception, which has crossed the $800-million mark worldwide, certainly will be one of this year's ten best picture Oscar nominees. Warner Bros. will bring the movie back into the public eye when it promos the DVD release in early December. One key contributor to the film's success is composer Hans Zimmer, who has been consistently strong of late (Sherlock Holmes marked his seventh Oscar nomination; he won for The Lion King). Released on iTunes July 9, the Inception soundtrack was a top ten bestseller.

    Frank Sinatra in Concert (At Royal Festival Hall)

    In 1971, at age 55, Frank Sinatra announced his retirement from show business, though of course he returned two years later and then barely quit till his death. The aborted retirement, however, neatly marks the close of Sinatra’s extraordinary Act II: Following his twin 1953 comebacks, in From Here to Eternity , and on his epoch-making first Capitol album, Swing Easy , Sinatra became the first modern superstar. For the next fifteen years, he made every year at the very least one album and one film—-once, as many as five films, and once, seven albums. Then in 1969, three albums but no film; 1970, one disastrous movie (Dirty Dingus Magee), and one often affecting but split-focused album (Sinatra and Company). Within a year, Sinatra announces retirement, being no fool: He certainly knew by then that an exit must precede a new entrance, that there’s a curtain after every act. For Sinatra fans (and who isn’t?), there’s a DVD available of a rare 1970 concert, right around the release of that Sinatra and Company album---FRANK SINATRA IN CONCERT AT ROYAL FESTIVAL HALL---and it is pure gold in assaying just exactly how much Sinatra knew and where he was as both performer and person as his superstar period came to an end.

    Hamptons: Guggenheim in the Spotlight

    Awards season has become an important aspect of the Hampton's International Film Festival here on Long Island. The film stoked talk about the education system in this country with attendees comparing notes on their own schooling. At lunch yesterday at The Maidstone, Davis Guggenheim (above and center below) chats with Bob Berney (below left) and Mark Urman (below right). Guggenheim's "Waiting for Superman" screened yesterday at the fest and the film will get a big boost this week at an unannounced event. But, yesterday Guggenheim asked his lunch partners not to spill the beans on that... Stay tuned.iphone photos by eugene hernandez
