Shriekfest Founder/Director Nabs Role in Mel Gibson Film, “Get the Gringo”

  Denise Gossett      It’s obvious to anyone who has tried—breaking into show business takes a lot of work. And no one knows this better than actor Denise Gossett, founder and director of the Shriekfest Film Festival, the longest-running Los Angeles-based festival dedicated to all things horror and sci-fi. But it seems that Ms. Gossett is starting to see her efforts really pay off. This May, she will be featured in the new Mel Gibson motion picture, “Get the Gring...

LOOKING BACK, Cinema's greatest moments...

  APOCALYPTO While bringing in the New Year in Mayan Mexico, how can I not think of this extraordinary film APOCALYPTO (2006) by Mel Gibson that gives cinematic verisimilitude a new meaning… Not only are they speaking ancient Yucatan Mayan!... but seriously, this film takes us hundreds of years back to pre-Columbian Meso-America. Gibson creates true cinema remarkably achieved, transporting us to this ancient world and its collective myth psychology. In this arresting scene, ...

Foster thinks Cannes film can be 'therapeutic' for Gibson

by Deborah Cole (On Twitter: @doberah!/doberah)CANNES, FranceJodie Foster drew cheers at Cannes on Tuesday for her latest film "The Beaver" and said she thought the experience of making it could be "therapeutic" for her troubled star Mel Gibson.   The small-budget drama, directed by Foster and featuring Gibson as a depressed toy company executive who turns to a beaver hand puppet to help him get his life back on track, had a shaky opening at US cinemas ...

The press conference for The BEAVER

*The Beaver* is a film about how a millionaire who's suffering from depression tries to get better with the help of a "talking" beaver. The film stars Jodie Foster and Mel Gibson. At the press conference, the actress/director of the movie Jodie Foster, writer kyle killen, and producer Keith Redmon were present. Since Jodie Foster can speak fluent French, she was kind enough to do the press conference in both French and English. She talked about the inspiration of the movie, the makin...

They entered the Palais' Lumiere Theatre walking hand-in-hand. During the screening they sat next to Summit's Patrick Wachsberger and Rob Friedman.

I am a Mel Gibson fan

  I've been a fan of Mel Gibson longer than I care to remember and was   saddened by his dalliance and love child with a Russian woman who had had a child earlier with former Bond, Timothy Dalton.  Had Mel gone off his head? Mel, the action star, the practical joker on the sets, who had a large brood from his happy marriage to the same woman - his childhood sweetheart- for decades. A rarity in Hollywood, OK, make that showbiz.   I'm sorry Mel knocked up the wo...

SXSW To Premiere Mel Gibson Film

In the drama, Ms. Foster's third film as a director, Gibson stars as a depres...

Is Oliver Stone An Anti-Semite?

  Is Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone an anti-semite? This question has swamped the blogosphere in the past few days after the director gave a controversial interview to the Sunday Times of London. The director of such celebrated films as PLATOON, WALL STREET, JFK and NIXON, whose most recent documentary SOUTH OF THE BORDER is a controversial look at the left-leaning politics in current favor in South America, has not exactly been known for his discretion. He is a social and political...

Movie Review: APOCALYPTO

Is it possible to judge Mel Gibson's film works now without burdening them with his recent public embarrassments? As open-minded as a viewer may try to be while sitting through his new directorial effort "Apocalypto", you may find yourself questioning the the psychology of someone who seems so preoccupied with graphic displays of violence. But think beyond his recent scandal. Think back to "Braveheart" and "The Passion of the Christ", both films that never seemed so alive as when they were spl...

The Maya Legacy and Gibson's "Apocalypto"

Looking for redemption?The December 8th release of Mel Gibson's movie "Apocalypto" is raising interest in the ancient Maya. How much is accurate in the Maya world that "Apocalypto" portrays? As we approach the end point of the Maya calendar in 2012, the true legacy of this great ancient civilization gives keys to navigating through chaotic earth changes. A new book on life in Maya times through the eyes of a modern time traveler delves deeply into this hidden Maya knowledge.Seattle, WA (PRWeb) N...
