John Hurt Also In CastThe idea of the vampire, that of the undead creature that survives by feeding off the blood of living people -- is an enormously resilient, resonant one, so it makes sense that there continue to be dozens of stories about them -- barely a year has gone by in the history of cinema without at least one example. But the last few years, it's gotten ridiculous: from blockbusters like "Twilight" and the upcoming "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," to indies like "Let The Right One In" and its American remake, to TV series like "True Blood" and "The Vampire Diaries," the damn things are everywhere, and we can't be the only people who are sick of them. At this stage, it would take a really, really interesting line-up of talent to make us interested in a vampire flick again.

It has been almost a decade since Lynne Ramsay's "Morvern Callar," and while some of that time was spent on an adaptation of "The Lovely Bones" that was scuttled (with Peter Jackson later delivering his take on the material to theaters), we're glad she's finally back. Next month she'll hit Cannes with "We Need To Talk About Kevin" another tough drama that promises to be a doozy.

2011 is quickly shaping up to be an exciting year for female-driven/directed pictures, with a wealth of great, intelligent options for people that are frankly sick of the overtly male-dominated market (or Katherine Heigl). Multiplexes will see Kristen Wiig lead an ensemble of funny ladies in "Bridesmaids," art house cinemas get Kelly Reichardt's dustbowl period piece "Meek's Cutoff," festivals continue to be graced by Slamdance-winner "Without," and hopefully the online community will see a glimpse of the Linda Cardellini war movie “Return” (hint hint), which has been compared to "Safe" and "A Woman Under The Influence.” Yowza.
