Through simple coincidence or by design, the majority of Gael Garcia Bernal's impressive filmography has contained a fierce political bent -- from the revolutionary inkings of “The Motorcycle Diaries” through to Pablo Larrain's recent Cannes sensation, “No” -- and judging from the actor's latest independent project based on U.S./Mexico relations, that tendency isn't likely to change much.

In the world of DVD commentaries there exist the masterpieces, such as the Soderbergh/Dobbs melee for “The Limey” or the Jackson/Walsh/Boyen trio of LOTR. But there are also the buried classics that must quietly wait for a proper release, which is exactly the status that, up until today, befell director John Hughes' landmark comedy, “Ferris Bueller's Day Off.”

Set to hit theaters in just under a month, Judd Apatow’s latest effort, “This Is 40,” is already screening for industry types, and the studio is kicking their marketing into high gear to compete in the crowded weekend before Christmas. Though it seems like we’ve seen a lot of footage already, the studio has only just released the first official clip from the sort-of sequel to “Knocked Up.”

It's all come down to "Django Unchained." With "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" premiering tonight in New Zealand, Quentin Tarantino's highly anticipated slavery/vengeance flick remains the last movie to be seen by awards voter types and critics in general, and with 'Django' now less than a month away, The Weinstein Company are picking up the pace, even if the details about the movie remain a bit in the dark.

The years have seen countless musicians cross over into the acting world, and of late, indie films have featured their fair share of artists taking a stab at a new medium. Will Oldham (who actually was an actor first, starring as a child in "Matewan"), James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem), David Yow (Jesus Lizard) and Carrie Brownstein (Sleater-Kinney) are among those who have traded the stage for a set, and now Deerhunter and Atlas Sound frontman Bradford Cox will be making the transition with the Jean-Marc Vallée-helmed '80s-set AIDS drama “The Dallas Buyer's Club.”

Let the speculatin' begin (again). During the entire press run for Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises," the drum beat played by everyone around the picture, from the director through each member of the cast, was that it was the end. There would be no fourth movie. Christian Bale said he wouldn't suit up again (unless Nolan wanted him to) and even with Joseph Gordon-Levitt revealed to be Robin/the new Batman, the actor insisted that there was no need for any spinoffs. Never say never, we suppose...there may be something transpiring....

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.
