    'Feeling' the Movies: Scott Hamilton Kennedy Exposes the Establishment in "The Garden"

    Politics, power, greed and the working class take the focus of Scott Hamilton Kennedy's Oscar-nominated doc, "The Garden."

    "I didn't want 'Y Tu Mama Tambien Two'": Carlos Cuaron Talks "Cursi" and Cha Cha Cha

The film's producers - bro Alfonso, Gullermo del Toro and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu - are long-time collaborators working on their new production company, Cha Cha ...
