That's Variety's Bill Higgins take on what's to come this weekend in Los ...

    Shorts Monthly: First Timers Dominate this Year's Oscar Short Film Derby

    In the live action, animation and documentary short film categories of the 81st Annual Academy Awards, only one nominated director has a track record.

    Oscar '09: "The Reader" Director Stephen Daldry

    Though literary works are catnip to filmmakers, it's always dicey to reinvent one for the screen. Witness "Revolutionary Road," which will send the unwary viewer reaching for the Welbutrin, despite the best efforts of Kate and Leo, reunited for first time since the boat went down.
