Marion Cotillard is so great in Inception. ¬†She leaps off the screen not unlike Heath Ledger did in The Dark Knight. ¬†It isn’t that her performance is that good, but her presence is just alive. ¬†She graces the cover of Interview Magazine and gets a Q’d by Nicole Kidman. One more after the cut.

(click to enlarge) Marlon Brando, age 28. Brian Williams featured these photos tonight on NBC Nightly News. You can find a dozen more on the LIFE site, here and here. By 1952, Marlon Brando was well on his way in Hollywood, with three incredible roles under his belt: his big-screen debut as a paraplegic war vet in The Men; a searing on-screen reprisal of his Broadway turn as the iconic…

The good news is, the Glenn Close series has been renewed for two more seasons. ¬†The bad news is, it will only be on Direct-TV, a satellite service that one must sign up for. ¬†This might turn out to be a good incentive for people to switch to satellite, but it is also a drag for people who don’t want to switch, or who can’t switch for whatever reason. That…

Bill Murray Opens Up

Thanks to reader Jon for pointing us to this Bill Murray interview that is far more revealing than any he’s done lately (he never does them at all). ¬†Reading through it, it’s easier to understand why Murray isn’t Mr. Popular in Hollywood. ¬†One has to be Marlon Brando or Katharine Hepburn good for the AMPAS to put up with people who have attitudes. ¬†When Bill Murray was up against Sean…


How to Train Your Dragon, Toy Story 3 and 3D

Read More

It’s everywhere. It seems as if every film coming out these days is available with 3d glassses. This of course has a lot to do with money. Ever since that groundbreaker Avatar came out & stormed the Box Office, the studios wanted to take advantage of the 3d medium by releasing every mediocre effort with glasses. When conceived, most of these movies were not meant for 3d viewing, compared to James Cameron’s Avatar which was born and bred as a 3d experience.


Winter's Bone And Oscar

Read More

Debra Granik’s second feature film, Winter’s Bone, is the kind of movie that gets progressively better & better as you delve deeper and deeper into it. It is filled with humane, real characterizations of a society that is rooted in evil and people that have lost all hope in life and succumbed to shadiness & drug dealing. There are memorable scenes that linger (the gutting of a squirrel, the taking of a girl, a final -ambiguous- mumbling sentence) & a sense of dread that will turn the most primitive of moviegoers off. It is through and through a product of Independent film and we should be very appreciative of its existence.

I was going to let this one go, but I think it’s worth addressing. ¬†Andrea Peyser actually gets paid to write lazy articles like this one, where she claims that The Kids Are Not All Right, because of various reasons – sex, drugs and lesbianism! ¬†But really, she’s kind of all over the map and I think she needs to get her story straight: It reaches further than the gay-cowboy…
