I was remiss in the first two Oscar columns of the year in that I neglected to mention Kate Winslet (for Best Actress), Josh Brolin (Best Actor) and perhaps Best Picture and Director.  Now we must add Winslet’s name to ...

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.

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 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 screenings and ...

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 mentions the ...

Casting has been announced role by role for weeks, but as Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps continues to consolidate assets I’m feeling the time has come to take stock of Oliver Stone’s recent acquisitions. Variety reports that Susan Sarandon ...

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.

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 ...

It’s quite a thing to watch a film like Milk coming off such an historic election year. Yes, they’re all historic but this one felt like the will of the people had been revived. All due to a hard fought ...

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 ...

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 ...

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, Salon: “I know it’s probably taking ...

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 ...

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 satire or an outright tragedy, “W.” is, if ...

New W. poster variations invite the inevitable comparison.

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 that sure ...

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