It certainly hasn't been for lack of trying that we haven't had a Marvin Gaye biopic. Cameron Crowe has been trying for years to get one made, while F. Gary Gray was also attached to helm a project titled simply "Marvin." But now it looks like Julien Temple is getting ahead of the pack with a leading man who has acting and musical chops.

There are few projects in the history of cinema as ambitious or accomplished as Michael Apted's "Up" series. Started in 1964, the concept at first was to capture the socio-economic condition and how it affected children, but it soon turned into a decades-spanning look at life itself. Every seven years, Apted returned with this cameras to visit with the subjects of "7 Up," resulting in a portrait unlike anything else, an insightful look into a group of Britons growing from childhood into adulthood.

As Vera Miles in "Hitchcock," Jessica Biel doesn't get to demonstrate a lot of range -- this isn't the Hitchcock film that dwells on how the famed director tormented his actresses, particularly in Miles' case, how he worked her to exhaustion. (For that, go no further than "The Girl" on HBO, which claims Hitch sexually harassed and physically abused Tippi Hedren while making "The Birds" and "Marnie.") This version lets Miles off easy -- if slightly bitter that Hitch was a control freak who wouldn't forgive her getting pregnant before "Vertigo," requiring her role to be recast with Kim Novak. Despite this, Biel thinks it was harder to be a serious actress in Hitchcock's heyday, and sometimes even more so now.

Sun, laughter, love and family foibles all in a gorgeous Euro location....nope, it's not the next Woody Allen outing, instead it's the latest from "In A Better World" and "Open Hearts" director Susanne Bier, "Love Is All You Need." A departure from her more serious-minded dramas, this confection stars Pierce Brosnan and takes place in Italy where love and romance naturally get a bit more complicated for all involved.

There is no doubt that Lars von Trier's erotic journey from Milan to Minsk upcoming "The Nymphomaniac" will give us plenty to talk about when it lands next year, but until then, we'll have to be patient. But there are some early works that can tide you over until then. In case you missed it, his very early 1971 short "En Blomst" is online and another curio has popped up.
