Di Caprio nails Edgar J -- to the cross

user
"J Edgar" by Clint Eastwood starring Leonardo Di Caprio as Hoover the anti-Red obsessed faggot G-man.Very artfully lensed in Rembrandt like chiaro-oscuro and meticulous attention to period detail (the 20s, 30s 40s, etc)Di Caprio's physical transformation in the film is a masterpiece of maquillage such that he is not even recognizable as himself in the latter stages of the central character's lifetime. This is a light year better than Dicaprio's ridiculous impersonation of Howard Hughes a few ye...

While the London Film Festival crowd was certainly enthusiastic about a film that brought them closer to one of their icons, the barbs from Lennon and his wife and artistic collaborator Yoko Ono were far from flattering about John’s native country. ...

The Loss Of Innocence At TIFF

user
  Yesterday was September 11th, and again I find myself in the city of Toronto, as I did in 2001......when the planes crashed, the towers fell, the buildings burned and America lost its innocence. It was a very strange place to be back then, in the midst of covering a film festival, while one's city was in chaos. For those of us from New York, there was a shared concern about the loss of loved ones, the security of our friends and family and the frustrations of not being able to place p...
