Plus Updates On Michael Winterbottom Projects 'The Promised Land,' 'Bailout,' 'Seven Days' And 'Paul Raymond's Wonderful World Of Erotica' Relationships are key in the filmmaking world, particularly in terms of actually getting the damn things made, and it's no surprise that many of the most successful filmmakers are ones with long-running close partnerships with producers. One of the closest today is that between eclectic filmmaker Michael Winterbottom and his long-term producing partner Andrew Eaton. The pair first worked together on the 1994 TV series "Family," founding Revolution Films together around the same time, and have made a film almost every year.

David Holmes To Write The ScoreConsidering the way in which punk rock changed the music world so comprehensively, it's surprising that relatively few films have been made following the great bands of the era. There have been great documentaries, from "The Filth and the Fury" to Ramones doc "End of a Century" and "Joe Strummer: The Future Is Unwritten," and a handful of dramatic features -- "Sid and Nancy" and "SLC Punk," while both flawed, have much to recommend them. But for the most part, the genre has produced films closer to the terrible Ian Dury biopic "Sex & Drugs & Rock and Roll" than to anything else.
