    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. Trouble is, what often gets lost in the translation to screen is the element which can raise a dark book above merely depressing: language, a writer's capital. Of course, very occasionally a film adaptation can be better than the novel - the case with "The English Patient," which retained the original's powerfully haunting tone, while spelling out the novel's bur...

    Oscar '09: "Milk"'s Dustin Lance Black

    While attending a party with both gay and straight members of the film and music communities last weekend in Los Angeles, I was struck by the parallels between the current post-Prop 8 environment and the anti-gay Prop 6 that late San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk campaigned to defeat in the '70s. "There were no gay people shown in the early anti-8 commercials," one attendee told me over the weekend. "They made it an abstract rights issue, while the pro-8 people made it personal. It was only after [the Yes vote] went up in the polls that they started rolling out Ellen [DeGeneres] on TV." As seen in Gus Vant Sant's new film, ""Milk," Harvey ...

The gunplay escalates when several more baddies emerge from the crowd, seriously pocking the Gugg's white ramp - and this battle royal...

    Relying On His Own Tastes: Director James Gray on "Two Lovers"

    Set in the insular world of Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, "Two Lovers" is a romantic drama starring Joaquin Phoenix as Leonard, a charismatic but troubled young man who moves back into his childhood home following a recent heartbreak. While recovering under the watchful eye of his parents (Isabella Rossellini and Moni Monoshov), Leonard meets two women in quick succession: Michelle (Gwyneth Paltrow), a mysterious and beautiful neighbor who is exotic and out-of-place in Leonard’s staid world, and Sandra, the lovely and caring daughter of a businessman who is buying out his family’s dry-cleaning business. Leonard becomes deeply infatuated by Michel...
