    Natalie Portman & Director Lynne Ramsay Teaming Up For Western 'Jane Got A Gun'

    Since starring in the surprise hit "Black Swan," and winning an Oscar for her troubles, Natalie Portman's been decidedly picky about her choice of roles. It's partly because she became a mother last year, and has been taking a little time off. But also, she's clearly not wanted...

    Hey Nina Jacobson - How About Picking a Woman for Catching Fire!

    According to reports in EW, the Playlist and the Hollywood Reporter, the search for a director for Catching Fire is down to two dudes -- Bennett Miller and Francis Lawrence.  Now I think that Miller is a great director.  I loved Moneyball and Capote.  But to pick him to direct Catchin...

    GREY MATTERS: WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN is disjointed and brilliant and baffling

    Nothing gets a horror fan more ticked off than a director with airs claiming her new film isn’t "really" horror but actually a character study exploring the deep psychological recesses of blah blah blah. In the case of "We Need to Talk About Kevin" director Lynne Ramsay, you’ve got a fancy Scot arth...

    We Need To Talk About Kevin—movie review

    To say that this is not an easy film to watch is putting it mildly. No one would deny Tilda Swinton’s superior performance, but people were sharply divided when We Need to Talk About Kevin screened at the Telluride Film Festival last fall. Some folks I spoke to were downright angry. When I fin...

    We Need to Talk About Kevin Gets Five Nominations from the London Critics Film Circle

    This film is clearly being better recevied overseas as a full body of work than it is here in the US.  Here, Tilda Swinton has gathered some nominations and could be on her way to an Academy Award nod (which in itself will be a miracle), but the film...not so much.   The Iron Lady did...

    We Really Need to Talk About Kevin and Lynne Ramsay

    I saw We Need to Talk About Kevin co-written and directed by Lynne Ramsay at the Toronto Film Festival. It was one of the best movies I saw there and it is still one of the best movies that I have seen this year. My thoughts (which I wrote at the festival) on the film are below. Not only have the...
