    Gabe Toro's Best Films Of 2011

    Great art challenges. Bad art flatters. But those of us who don’t dedicate our lives to film don’t always seek to be challenged. Sometimes we want to experience art at our leisure. One doesn’t schedule, or plan the impact of art (making a film review deceptive, as it can never be a critics’ final th...

    Martin Scorsese's Cut Of 'Margaret' Longer Than Current Version; Producer Turned Down TIFF Premiere

    After six years of legal battles and editing bay drama, Fox Searchlight finally released Kenneth Lonergan's long awaited "Margaret" this weekend in a handful of theaters. Pushed by a marketing campaign that could generously be called "modest," the film opened to fairly dismal numbers and even though it will rollout to more cities next weekend, the extended imbroglio seems to earned the movie a quiet death. Except, in the court of law, the saga of "Margaret" is not over (more on that in a second) but moreover, for anyone who has seen the film, the news that a longer version of Lonergan's film never made it to screens will be an added frustrati...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Dolphin Tale' Flips Over Another Batch Of Weak New Releases To Score #1

    Break it down however you want, but its simple economics. The last month has been absolutely saturated with product, so few of it appealing to mainstream America. These movies aren’t bad. And, in most cases, the marketing isn’t all that faulty. It’s pure numbers. The market can’t withstand this over...

    New Looks At Matt Damon & Anna Paquin In 'Margaret' And Liam Hemsworth In 'Hunger Games'

    The story of "Margaret" is long, complicated and kind of tragic, but here's the short version. Riding high off the success of "You Can Count On Me," Kenneth Lonergan set to work on his sophomore effort "Margaret," beginning shooting in September 2005. The film wrapped a few months later, but that's where everything started to go wrong. For reasons that are still not clear, Lonergan, who had final cut, was unable to get an edit together that he liked, causing the film to keep getting pushed further and further back. Scott Rudin and Sydney Pollack were brought in to try and help Lonergan over the finish line, but those efforts proved futile. Me...
