Open Letter Accuses Upcoming 'Truth,' to Star Redford and Blanchett, of Lies

Any film about semi-recent political controversy — and a classic battle of “they’re wrong, I’m right,” no less — is sure to incite more hubbub on release. When the film has only just cast two leads and has yet to shoot a single frame? Well, at least it's drumming up publicity.

Oscar Loves a Woman on the Edge: Eight Iconic Best Actress Snubs (CLIPS)

Why does cinema favor the mad woman? It's easy to see why Oscar does: roles like Jasmine French give an actress space to not only chew but swallow and spit up scene after scene. Cate Blanchett will almost certainly win Best Actress this year for her frittered, diabolical performance in "Blue Jasmine" as cinema's archetypical woman-on-the-verge: that pill-popping, martini-swilling mad Medea who men fear and women sometimes dream of (being? playing? escaping into?).

Woody Allen Strikes Back: "Of Course I Did Not Molest Dylan"; Dylan Farrow Responds UPDATE

"TWENTY-ONE years ago, when I first heard Mia Farrow had accused me of child molestation, I found the idea so ludicrous I didn’t give it a second thought. We were involved in a terribly acrimonious breakup, with great enmity between us and a custody battle slowly gathering energy.
