    From Bloody Murders To Bridesmaid Speeches: The 25 Best Movie Moments Of 2011

    The great Howard Hawks once famously said that what makes a good film is "three great scenes, and no bad ones." While we'd argue that that's not an absolute hard-and-fast rule, he wasn't far off. With 2011 providing a number of above-average films, there've been plenty of m...

    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.

    And So It Begins, 'The Descendants' & 'Martha Marcy May Marlene' Lead Gotham Award Nominees

Bear in mind, the Gotham Awards have little bearing on the eventual Oscar nods with only last year's Best Feature winner "Winter's Bone" factoring into the proceedings at the Kodak Theater. However, it does represent a good chunk of what you might see at the Independent Spirit Awards later in the year and if anything, these nominations confirm that Fox Searchlight is going to have another banner year on the statu...
