    My Life As A Mankiewicz: An Insider’s Journey Through Hollywood

    If you love Hollywood anecdotes—not the same old stuff you’ve heard before but fresh material, related first-hand by a master storyteller—you simply must get this book. I didn’t so much read as devour it, and now I feel impelled to tell everyone I know how good it is.

    Cannes Review: Cronenberg's Dystopian "Cosmopolis" Stars Pattinson as Dissolute Master of the Universe

    "Life is too contemporary," Didi Fancher (Juliette Binoche) tells Eric Packer (Robert Pattinson) after they've just had sex in the back of his limousine. That seems to be the global concern in "Cosmopolis," a headlong plunge into a dystopian urban milieu of greed, corruption, technology, nihilism, y...

    Cannes Virgin Diary 4: Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis," Reygadas' "Post Tenebras Lux"

    My trip is winding down to an end, and the festival has ended on such a high note for me. Last night, I tried once again to see Leos Carax's "Holy Motors," but the screening was cancelled. I cried a little, and then ate a Big Mac. But in spite of that disappointment, I've seen some excellent films.

    Cannes Review: 'Therese Desqueyroux' Starring Audrey Tautou Is A Banal Version Of 'Masterpiece Theater'

    "Therese Desqueyroux," the closing night selection for this year's main competition lineup at the Cannes Film Festival, is not the nuanced period drama it should be but rather a banal, pseudo-thoughtful and monotonous episode of "Masterpiece Theater." Co-adapted by director Claude Miller ("A Secret,...

    Cannes Review: Sprawling 'Hemingway & Gellhorn' Worthy Of The Rough & Tumble Life Of Two Great Writers

    Ernest Hemingway is the kind of grandiose figure that it seems it would be difficult to contain within the framework of a feature film, and the decision to pair his life with that of his ex-wife Martha Gellhorn only adds to the task at hand. But with the leisure of a two-and-a-half hour running time...

    Cannes Review: 'Mud' Starring Matthew McConaughey Is An Underwhelming Anti-Fairy Tale

    "Mud," American writer/director Jeff Nichols' underwhelming follow-up to the masterfully visceral "Take Shelter," is a shallow and contrived coming of age story. While both 'Shelter' and "Shotgun Stories," Nichols' promising debut feature, explore their respective characters' motives and emotions, "...

    Review: In 'OC87: The Obsessive Compulsive, Major Depression, Bipolar, Asperger's Movie,' Too Much Bud Gets A Little Boring

    "OC87: The Obsessive Compulsive, Major Depression, Bipolar, Asperger's Movie" is a completely unique documentary that depicts one man's struggle -- co-director Bud Clayman -- with his Asperger's Syndrome and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

    Cannes Review Round-Up: David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis" with Robert Pattinson

    If anything, judging from Cannes critics, David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis" is a faithful adaptation of the Don DeLillo source material. The consensus is that Cronenberg keeps his fierce and trim style, despite striving to stay true to the novella.
