Five Favorite Brad Pitt Roles

Article: Five Favorite Brad Pitt Roles

Even though the first rule of “Fight Club” is not to talk about Fight Club, and the second rule of fight club is don’t talk about fight club, we can’t help but tell the world that we’re showing it tonight at 8/7c. Tune in for your fix of Friday night fights. In the darkly comic…

Fantastic Fest Takes Over Austin

Article: Fantastic Fest Takes Over Austin

Fantastic Fest is taking over Austin, Texas from September 23 to 30. This year’s festival features an all-star lineup and one of the busiest schedules ever. Luckily, our crack team of gimlet-eyed reporters is headed to the front with the solemn duty to get the story. We made them sign blood oaths before we sent…

Bruce Springsteen was at the Toronto International Film Festival for the premiere of “The Promise: The Making of Darkness on the Edge of Town,” which chronicles the long writing and recording sessions with the E Street Band that lead up to the 1978 release of “Darkness on the Edge of Town,” Springsteen’s 4th album.

Edward Norton Divides and Conquers

Article: Edward Norton Divides and Conquers

You get two Edward Nortons for the price of one in pot/philosophy comedy “Leaves of Grass,” written and directed by, as well as co-starring, Tim Blake Nelson. Norton plays identical twins — Bill, a buttoned-down Brown professor with a rising career, and Brady, a fast-talking pot farmer who never left the small Oklahoma town in…

Toronto 2010: “Stone,” Reviewed

Article: Toronto 2010: “Stone,” Reviewed

Reviewed at the 2010 Toronto Film Festival. To say “Stone” requires faith – both from its audience and as a recurring theme – would be an incredible understatement. That it made this agnostic care would be another. Already established to some as the “Edward Norton in cornrows” movie, it’s a serious drama that I entered…

Fantastic Fest’s Follow-up Punch Includes the US Premiere of “Stone”

Article: Fantastic Fest’s Follow-up Punch Includes the US Premiere of “Stone”

Edward Norton and director John Curran will bring the US premiere of “Stone” to Fantastic Fest on September 24th, the big news in the latest round of programming announcements from the Austin-based genre festival.

Edward Norton’s Hulking absence will be felt in “The Avengers.”

Article: Edward Norton’s Hulking absence will be felt in “The Avengers.”

It doesn’t exactly come as a shock that Edward Norton won’t be Hulking out in “The Avengers,” given his famous disagreements with Marvel over the final cut of 2008′s “The Incredible Hulk” (in which he backed the film’s director), due to which he declined to do press for the film. If there was any surprise…

Edward Norton on the Allure of “Leaves of Grass”

Article: Edward Norton on the Allure of “Leaves of Grass”

“Leaves of Grass” tells the story of Bill Kincaid (played by Edward Norton), an Ivy League professor who returns to Oklahoma after receiving news that his estranged twin brother, Brady (also played by Edward Norton), has been murdered. It turns out the pot-growing sibling is actually still alive and soon both siblings become embroiled in…

The potetry of “Leaves of Grass.”

Article: The potetry of “Leaves of Grass.”

Reviewed at the 2010 SXSW Film Festival. At the intersection of pot and poetry, at a place we might as well dub “potetry,” lies Tim Blake Nelson’s “Leaves of Grass.” Pot movies, like potheads, have a tendency to wax philosophical — this one has an actual philosophy lecture. In it, Brown classics professor Bill Kincaid…

Toronto 2009: Edward Norton Talks to Himself

Article: Toronto 2009: Edward Norton Talks to Himself

“I walk around talking to myself anyway,” Edward Norton told the packed Ryerson Theater after Monday’s premiere of “Leaves of Grass” at the Toronto Film Festival. “Maybe this was just the way to get paid for it.” Although the “Fight Club” star’s played a few characters with dual personalities, this new comedy from Tim Blake…

Vacillating Voiceovers: A History of Unreliable Narrators

Article: Vacillating Voiceovers: A History of Unreliable Narrators

We trust the movies. We have to. Most of them only work if we look up at the images changing 24-times-a-second in front of us and believe that they reflect some sort of objective reality where a man can fly his house to South America or alien robots can transform into cars. Even when a…

Odds: Doc to power, sexist Lane, nuking the fridge.

Article: Odds: Doc to power, sexist Lane, nuking the fridge.

The most interesting article amongst the ones from the new issue of Cineaste now up online is actually from the editors. The editorial, which I appreciate for its don’t-stop-believin’ sentiments but don’t entirely buy, is entitled “Speaking Documentary Truth to Power,” and argues that despite audiences’ Iraqdoc fatigue, “political documentaries do get the attention of…

Trailering: Babylon A.D., The Edge of Heaven, Towelhead.

Article: Trailering: Babylon A.D., The Edge of Heaven, Towelhead.

A few new trailers out on the web: Here’s a wordless teaser trailer for “Babylon A.D.,” introduced in French by actor/director Mathieu Kassovitz, the man behind both the high highs of “La Haine” and the loooow lows of “Gothika.” Delayed, over budget and pushed back from a February release date to the less desirable one…

Everyone’s gone green.

Article: Everyone’s gone green.

The Walt Disney Company has established a new production banner, Disneynature, through which it hopes to put two new nature docs a year to theaters starting in 2009 with “Earth,” then on to “Oceans” and “Chimpanzee.” Despite the apparently enviro-angle, Brook Barnes at the New York Times points out this move is mainly just business-savvy:…
