Sundance #5: Talkin' bout revolution

PARK CITY, Utah -- Rosario Dawson should be on those Sunday morning political talk shows, as a guest or a host, either way. She is so intelligent and fiercely opinionated that I forgot, for a moment, I was talking with a movie actress, and got into my Problems of the World mode.

Toronto fest signals the opening of Good Movie Season

After Cannes, the Toronto Film Festival is the most important in the world. Last year's festival was ripped in two on Sept. 11. I walked out of a screening, heard the news, and the world had changed.

Suspense builds, Cinerama rolls at Telluride fest

TELLURIDE, Colo.--The schedule of each year's Telluride Film Festival is as closely guarded as the Oscar winners.

Movie Answer Man (01/30/2000)

Q. When I saw Larry Clark's "Another Day In Paradise" in the theater I felt it was a good movie with great acting, but Natasha Gregson Wagner's character was underdeveloped. At the time I blamed the filmmakers. Now I've seen the director's cut on DVD and found that a key scene with Wagner's character had been cut out thanks to the MPA

Interview with Harmony Korine

CANNES, France Harmony Korine has seen the future of the cinema, and it is him. Nobody else is as young, as bright, as original, as inspired. Certainly not Quentin Tarantino, who is ancient at 35.
