    Interview: Writer/Director Ben Lewin Talks Uncovering The Amazing True Story Of 'The Sessions' And Casting John Hawkes

    John Hawkes Talks Working With First Time Feature Director Sean Durkin In 'Martha Marcy May Marlene'

    Actor Talks Spielberg's 'Lincoln,' Says He'd Love A 'Deadwood' MovieInstant recognizability can be a problem for actors, especially if they have grander ambitions than being a movie star. But John Hawkes somehow found a way to keep from being typecast – or even singularly associated with one role – while having one of the most interesting and unique faces in modern movies. For some viewers, he’s Richard, the shoe salesman who furtively connects with Miranda July in "Me and You and Everyone We Know"; for others, he’s Sol Star, the businessman, sheriff's best friend and town backbone in HBO’s “Deadwood;” and for still others, he’s the terrifyin...

    Sean Durkin And Elizabeth Olsen Discuss The Optimism At The Heart Of 'Martha Marcy May Marlene'

    From the mind of Sean Durkin, “Martha Marcy May Marlene” is an unsettling and stunning experience (check out our Sundance review). The film follows the dual narrative of Martha (Elizabeth Olsen), a young girl who becomes absorbed into a small cult community, only to escape to the confines of her sister’s lake house. As we see both parts of this story run parallel, we discover that Martha may not be ready to assimilate back into society, as she quarrels with her sister and her sister's husband, unable to understand what could be considered a “right” way to behave. Meanwhile, we also are given a window into her life on the cult commune led by t...

    We Read It: Casting Quentin Tarantino's Slavery/Spaghetti Western Epic 'Django Unchained'

    You’ll recall in 2008 we did, what we thought, was a very good job of casting Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds” (some of us are still convinced our picks were better than Q.T.’s, but that’s another story). And unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Tarantino has recently fini...
