And while Gore would definitely think Kevin Spacey is hot, one wonders what he would make of another *damnable biopic,* especially about himself now dead since July 31, 2012. He died on my birthday, in keeping with his sour and sweet tone since we met at an event in Beverly Hills.   We had collaborated on a...

Looks Like Ben Stiller Finds Himself Again With BRAD’S STATUS

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent Hey, so Ben Stiller is back. Ignore that casual pop opening. (Smiley face.) It’s just in keeping with Stiller’s upcoming starrer from Amazon Studios, BRAD’S STATUS. You can Google up what this remade actor has been up to personally, because it shows in his work. Those are real tears, and this is a heartfelt movie, despite the toss-away title. BRAD'S STATUS is directed by Mike White, the guy who brought us SCHOO...

Action and suspense: A hapless New York advertising executive is mistaken for a government agent by a group of foreign spies.   Asking which is the best Hitchcock is something like asking which is the best Beethoven symphony, but if pressed to the wall I would call  NBNW Hitchcock's Ninth (and Psycho, his Fifth). The coolest of Grant and the hottest of Marie Saint is simply the coolest film ever made from every angle you can think of. Few people would contend that Cary Grant...
