Ben Affleck becomes a poster boy again for Indie films

#
A friend wrote to me last night "what are you going to see tonight?". I answered him, I'm going to see Ben Affleck, of course!  My friend replied "Ask him what happened after Good Will Hunting". Well he answered that. "C´mon, how can he be called indie?" another friend asked. I´d asked the same question myself. Well Ben Affleck answered that too, with reflections on Good Will Hunting that launched his career, role after role in films by Kevin Smith (who fa...

'Where Are You Taking Me' took me to Uganda with a sincere observational eye that simply lets the magical moments unfold before you, untouched except by Kimi Takes...

The Rehabilitation of Ben Affleck

Hollywoodland edges Dahlia in Lido Noir Derby

user
The 63rd edition of the Venice film festival has opened with a salvo of noir or noirish films during which the 'dark horse' "Hollywoodland" has upstaged the odds-on favorite "Black Dahlia" which arrived with far more ballyhoo.
