THE SOCIAL NETWORK Kicks Off 2010 NYFF

  Future generations will be in a better position to determine whether the introduction of social networking technology in the first decade of the 20th century was a blessing or a curse. Certainly for the entrepreneurs who created new ways for us to communicate with one another, it has been both.

Whatever Happened To Ryan Gosling?

I've never seen The Notebook.  I know.  That's bad right?  An alleged film connoisseur who writes a blog about films and never has seen The Notebook.  But I must admit, I've seen just about every other Ryan Gosling film made. My favorite is the film Half Nelson where he plays the crack-addicted school teacher who begins an unlikely friendship with one of his students.  I also loved his work in United States of Leland where he had the opportunity to work with the likes of Kevi...

Harry's goons (Alex Winter + Brad Dourif) intend to screw-up the production, but instead they skewer the stars, which brings in some bungling cops (Al Ruscio and the late Dr. Timothy Leary).
