So, how hard is it to make a Jeff Buckley movie if you don't have official access to his songs or life story? Apparently, not that hard. While "Mystery White Boy" continues to marinate, "Greetings From Tim Buckley" has cast, shot, played a major festival and is now getting ready for release. And you know what, it's not as much like Jackie Jormp-Jomp as you might think. Good luck to whoever gets cast as Jeff Buckley in the next movie, because Penn Badgley -- uneven as the movie turns out -- is actually pretty good.

Tamsin Egerton in THE LOOK OF LOVE
So, with Steven Soderbergh stepping away from film sets to pursue other endeavors, whose going to replace him as the cinematic chameleon to follow? Well, how about Michael Winterbottom? In the past few years the Brit helmer has gone from scuzzy noir "The Killer Inside Me" to comedic road trip series "The Trip" to an India-set Thomas Hardy adaptation "Trishna" to an intimate character study with "Everyday." And now, his latest is a biopic on smut king and real estate baron Paul Raymond. Like we said, the guy doesn't like to repeat himself.

While stylishly capturing the verve, exotica, and free-spirited mojo of swinging '60s London, uber-prolific English director Michael Winterbottom's portrait of legendary U.K. smut impresario Paul Raymond is otherwise a shallow misfire.

Certainly, if a film pulls together a cast that includes Philip Seymour Hoffmam, Christopher Walken and Catherine Keener, there's going to be something worth enjoying. And indeed, the trio give top shelf performances as we've always come to expect from them in "A Late Quartet." But it's just too bad that they're in service of Yaron Zilberman's film, which takes the unique focus of a string quartet in Manhattan and puts it in the middle of a standard and unsatisfying soap opera that spins off into one subplot too many.

As any reader of the site knows, we're big fans of Imogen Poots, and we'll just go ahead and say that she's the secret weapon of both the upcoming "A Late Quartet" and "Greetings From Tim Buckley," which premiered at TIFF last month. Her star is on the rise, as she's been seen rubbing elbows with Terrence Malick in "Knight Of Cups." And now she's landed her first bona fide blockbuster movie.

Where is Rosamund Pike finding the time? Fresh off of “Jack Reacher,” the actress is busy filming a significant role in Edgar Wright’s final instalment in the jokingly monikered ‘Blood and Ice Cream’ trilogy, “The World’s End.” Once she’s wrapped on that she’ll be reuniting with Simon Pegg on the set of “Hector and the Search for Happiness,” and she’s also attached to Stephen Brown’s “The Sea.” But not content with that busy schedule (and likely happy to capitalise on a sudden resurgence in popularity), Pike has added another project in the form of Pascal Chaumeil’s English-language debut “A Long Way Down.”
