Josh Brolin

Spike Lee’s Oldboy, first trailer

OLDBOY is a provocative, visceral thriller that follows the story of an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is abruptly kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement. When he is inexplicably released, he embarks on…

Jonah Hex

Slim pickings for awards prospects when Jonah Hex is the best antidote for Sex and the City 2. But those are the cards we're dealt today.

Cannes Diary, Day 5

So far, there have been no standing ovations and no loud booing. The only film that got mildly booed was the pretty awful La princesse de Montpensier. The Tavernier film was a difficult sit, despite the much-commented upon beauty of…

Cannes Diary – Day 3

Cannes is a many layers deep experience. Every time you think you've nailed one layer, peeled it back, stuffed it into your pocket another one reveals itself. And another, and another. There are obscure screenings and high profile…

Josh Brolin talks about the toy in his pants

Josh Brolin on the cover of the Men's Fashion Issue of this weekend's NYTimes Magazine. (click to supersize). Though the photo is captioned "True Grit," it refers to the man himself, since the interview with Lynn Hirschberg never…

Coen Baby Coen

Joel and Ethan Coen directed this Cinema Paradiso Ranchero riff on No Country for Old Men as part of the Cannes 2007 series, "Chacun son Cinema" ("To Each His Own Cinema"). From scanners via Craig Kennedy at Living in Cinema.

Milk Hits, Earns Raves Across the Board

Pete Travers gives the film four stars, writing: Milk is Van Sant's best film, which is saying a lot, since his generous intelligence and unforced grace shine through whether he's sailing the mainstream (Good Will Hunting, To Die For) or…

Why Milk, Why Now

It‚Äôs quite a thing to watch a film like Milk coming off such an historic election year. Yes, they‚Äôre all historic but this one felt like the will of the people had been revived. All due to a hard fought campaign led by a bright and…

Milk Premiere Brings Back Memories

Phil Bronstein, editor of the SF Chronicle (and Sharon Stone's ex) writes up the premiere of Milk. He writes of Josh Brolin: I'd walked the District 8 neighborhood with Dan White, doing a few stories about this seemingly earnest guy a bit…

Silky Milk stills

Focus Features has added a nice set of stills from Milk on the official site. Love the way the Azure blue theme of the marketing campaign (and the Democratic Party) pops in so many of these shots. Seven more beauties after the jump.…

W. reviews trickle down

J. Hoberman, Village Voice: "A painful movie to endure." Alonso Duralde, MSNBC: "Whatever your preconceived notions, W. manages to be both exactly what you thought it would be and something else entirely." Stephanie Zacharek,…

Rove and Stone Back and Forth

It's something to finally see Rove squirming under the microscope. The New York Times talks to Oliver Stone and actually asks Karl Rove about it: ‚ÄúI don‚Äôt think they made any attempt to have this conform to any reality except that…

Variety reviews W.

Todd McCarthy delivers the first mainstream review. "...considering Stone's reputation and Bush's vast unpopularity, a relatively even-handed, restrained treatment of recent politics. For a film that could have been either a scorching…

Yet another dollop of W.

I'll say this: The trailers and posters for W. are getting progressively more sophisticated and interesting. The more it veers into surreal absurdity the more I like it, slouching into a crude groove of Mad Hatter sociopathic slapstick…

‘Milk’ trailer

(thanks to Craig Kennedy via Nick Plowman for the chain-reaction tip.) Excuse me while I go off someplace to be speechless.
