Did you have to do much research to come up with the psychopathic characteristics for [main character] Lee Byong-gu (Shin Ha-kyun)?

Via New York Newsday, Maggie Gyllenhaal is sticking by the statements she made while promoting post-9/11 movie "The Great New Wonderful," which made its world premiere at Tribeca on Friday. Gyllenhaal dared suggest that the US may have, say, possibly provoked the attacks on the World Trade Center with some of our actions in the international sphere. A fan website about the actress has been flooded with hate mail. In the Guardian, a look at how no fewer than four Sydney Pollack films (including "The Interpreter") have contained the line "You think not getting caught in a lie is the same thing as telling the truth?" The BBC talks to Simon Jones, who played the original Arthur Dent in both the TV miniseries and radio versions of "The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy," about his opinion on the latest incarnation of the series. And the Cinecultist suggests the ideal Passover film â€” Gene Wilder’s "The Frisco Kid."
