As an actor in his native Quebec, Dolan was perhaps best known – if known at all – for his roles in Roger Cantin’s “La forteresse suspendue,” or for providing voice work in French-dubbed versions of “Twilight” and “South Park." But amidst a storm of media attention placed on cinematic giants like Lars Von Trier and Quentin Tarantino, Dolan managed to steal headlines at Cannes when “Mother” – after receiving an eight-minute standing ovation at its first screening – won every award it was ...

    Tomorrow, New York City voters will head to the polls to cast a vote for mayor. While current mayor Mike Bloomberg has been facing controversy for extending term limits against popular support, his Democrat opponent, Comptroller Bill Thompson, is a virtual unknown across the city.
