    "Art" Packs Punch

    It's not often that a post-screening Q&A produces big fireworks, especially at such a venerable and reserved affair as the New York Film Festival, but the sparks flew last fall following the debut of Don Argott doc, "The Art of the Steal." The film, which opens today, recalls the long and arduous fi...

    For Your Consideration: Predicting The Animated, Foreign & Doc Feature Winners

    Before next week's final pre-Oscar column that intends to run down each and every category for your prognosticatory pleasure, this very last category-by-category batch edition of "For Your Consideration" takes on the three non-Best Picture best pictures, where the alleged best in animation, documentary, and foreign filmmaking fight for the Academy's often debated stamp of excellence. While the expanded-to-ten best picture category did allow for one example of the generally underacknowledged trio to make the cut (Pixar's "Up," which became the second animated film ever nominated after 1991's "Beauty and the Beast"), dreams of a first-time doc...

    "Prodigal Sons'" Kim Reed: From Footballer to Female Filmmaker

    "I think with the issue of transgender and sexual identity gets confused with attraction," filmmaker Kimberly Reed told indieWIRE on Thursday. "I think it's important to distinguish between the two...There's an assumption that you'd only want to change genders because you don't want to be gay." Making the transition from a straight football playing All-American male to female lesbian is the stuff that makes headlines and draws sensational media attention. Reed recently appeared on "Oprah" spotlighting her story and the film she directed, "Prodigal Sons," which had its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival in 2008 and made a long run o...

    Oscars 2010 | Maggie Gyllenhaal: "I feel very vulnerable watching myself in this movie."

    "The release of this movie was tied completely to the awards season," Maggie Gyllenhaal told indieWIRE regarding Scott Cooper's "Crazy Heart," for which she has been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. "And I could feel it so strongly. For example, when Jeff Bridges won the Golden Globe, all of a sudden ten people a day would stop me on the street and tell me they'd seen the movie. It had such a huge effect. You know, I'd been through the awards stuff before [receiving Golden Globe nominations for both "Secretary" and "Sherrybaby"], at least going on the road and doing some of it... But I've never felt so concretely th...
