ATONEMENT and SWEENEY TODD Are Big Winners at Golden Globes

Not only was there not the lavish and extravagantly catered affair at the Beverly Hilton, but no actors, writers or directors were present to make acceptment speeches. In fact, the whole event was nothing more than a glorified Press Conference and some rather boring (and ratings challenged) telecasts on NBC, CNN and some other media outlets. In spite of the Writers Guild strike, the Awards were indee...

2007 New York Film Festival post script

The New York Film Festival never attempted to provide an overview of the contemporary film scene, the sort of panorama offered by the New York Tribeca film festival, Toronto or other major international festivals, nor does the NYFF stand for the marketing frenzy for independents increasingly noted at Sundance. To the contrary, selecting about 28 or 29 films each year, the NYFF has identified over the last 20 years under Richard Pena’s direction innovative film makers challenging past filmmakin...

Toronto Party Central

 Monday, September 10---------Toronto, like any major film festival on the circuit, is as much about the parties as it is the films.

While it is physically impossible to attend every event  (or even get an invitation to them all), I try and do my share.    The US distributors give some of this town's most stellar soirees, with outs...
