    William Monahan Talks Making The "Subversive" 'London Boulevard' & The Influence Of 'Blow-Up'

    11/11/11! Did you make a wish? I was writing this column at 11:11 a.m. and missed it by one minute. Oh well, I don't much go in for that superstitious stuff, but I hope all your 11:11 wishes and hopes and dreams come true.

    Review "London Boulevard" is a Starry, Superficial Thriller

    D.W. Griffith allegedly said that the only necessary ingredients to make a movie were a girl and a gun. "London Boulevard," the directorial debut of "The Departed" screenwriter William Monohan, has two girls, several guns, a lot of angry gangsters and a screenplay sly enough to d...

    Ok, you can't really anticipate a film if you've already seen it, right? And while that doesn't apply for every member of The Playlist, many of us were lucky enough to get early sneak peeks at 2011 by attending film festivals around the globe like the Cannes, Toronto and Vancouver Film Festivals, the Melbourne Film Festival, the London Film Festival and more; yes, we're global.
