Loitering With Intent
Writing a movie might be a dramatic process for those in the middle of it, but it's not a terribly cinematic one for those of us watching it unfold. After all, how much emotional and visual oomph can a filmmaker expect to squeeze out of somebody typing into a keyboard (or scribbling in a notebook)? Thankfully, "Loitering with Intent," the very funny, ramshackle new comedy premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival, does much to dispense with the actual mechanics of two dudes trying to write a screenplay, instead indulging in the messy familial dynamics that can derail any project, no matter how ambitious or well-planned it might be.

There are few filmmakers whose work is as instantly recognizable as Darren Aronofsky's. His subject matter has differed wildly, from Kabbalistic mathematical conspiracies to drug addiction to high-class ballet to Biblical apocalypse in this weekend's "Noah." But his heart-on-its-sleeve, unsubtle (that's not a knock, necessarily), highly cinematic, uniquely stylized films couldn't possibly be mistaken for anyone else's, even as their content proves ever-surprising.

The more we hear about Disney's sci-fi "Tomorrowland," the more we’re intrigued. Related in some way to the Disney theme park attraction, the plot is still officially "unknown," though we’ve heard some fantastic things. The Brad Bird-directed film has already lined up an array of actors, including George Clooney and Hugh Laurie, or for doctor drama fans, Dr. Doug Ross ("E.R.") and Dr. Gregory House ("House, M.D."). And now, Judy Greer has joined the line-up, presumably as a bit of comic relief, but at this point, any speculation as to her specific role is being pulled out of thin air. This will mark Greer’s third film with Clooney; the others being "Three Kings" and "The Descendants."

It has been nearly a decade since funnyman Billy Crystal has appeared on screen in a movie (and we'll overlook his cameo in "The Tooth Fairy"), seemingly perfectly content to just do voice work ("Cars," "Howl's Moving Castle") or appear in viral videos. But there is only so long you can keep somebody like Crystal away from a movie set. He's set to cameo in "The Muppets" later this year, he apparently pops up in Jonas Åkerlund's "Small Apartments" and, of course, he'll be bringing Mike Wazowski back to life in "Monsters University." But his first big starring role since "Analyze That" will be in "Us & Them" with Bette Midler and Bailee Madison, and now a couple more folks are along for the ride.

Review: Chemistry Really Cooks In The Uneven, But Super Charming 'Crazy Stupid Love'

Precariously mixing elements of broad comedy, bittersweet heartache, charming romance and soulful, surprisingly mature dramatic moments, "Crazy, Stupid, Love" is an endearing and winning summer comedic drama. It succeeds in spite of some messy plotting, dicey adulteration of tones, and too convenient and ridiculous sequences that threaten to unravel a well-made, mostly well-written picture about love and marital discord.

We are all highly anticipating the fall festival season, and, for most of us, it couldn't get here sooner. The first big news of the season, is that George Clooney's newest directorial effort, "Ides Of March," will open the Venice Film Festival.

The next few months might be dominated by summer blockbusters, but we're also starting to get the festival hits from the last six months: acclaimed indies from Toronto, Sundance and SXSW, films like "Submarine," "Beginners," "The Trip" and "Page One," all land in the next while and a trailer has just debuted for one of the starrier offerings from Park City this year.

We bloody love Emily Mortimer. The British star has proved herself over the last decade or so to be an incredibly versatile actress, capable of terrific dramatic work, in projects like "Lars and the Real Girl" or "Lovely & Amazing" (the latter really should have brought her more awards attention) and broad comedy (her turn as Jack Donaghy's bird-boned girlfriend in "30 Rock" is one for the ages), and she even classes up more formulaic fare -- see her turn as a cop opposite Michael Caine in "Harry Brown."
