Annette Bening honored at the 26th SBFF with American Riviera Award

user
By Ron Gilbert After attending this event hosted by festival director Roger Durling who created his Valentine event to Annette which truly came from the heart, I give my vote to Annette Bening for Best Actress. Many reasons moved me to this after seeing clips from her film legacy.  Her passion for theatre in which presenter and Oscar winner Kevin Costner called her our Katherine Hepburn and a Woman for All Seasons and then told her to come over and give him a hug.

Many reasons moved me to this after seeing clips from her film legacy.

This was part of the final moments of the trib...

Politics + Hollywood = Poliwood

user
  It is a powerful mathematical equation: Politics + Hollywood = Poliwood. In his latest film, Oscar winning director and Connecticut resident Barry Levinson (RAIN MAN) surveys the close dance between the celebrity culture of the film capital and the political halls of power in Washington. The film is the Closing Night attraction for this year's Connecticut Film Festival on Saturday evening at 730pm at the historic Palace Theater, preceded by the announcement of the Festival's awards in ...

user
The Berlinale is paying homage and awarding an Honorary Golden Bear to the pioneering American director Arthur Penn.

The Golden Globes: Hollywood's Biggest Party

Tuesday, January 16----Even from a distance of 5000 miles, sitting comfortably in front of my flat screen television, and watching with amusement the telecast of the Golden Globe Awards, it was clear that this is one of Hollywood's biggest and most irreverent parties. It has long been noted that because the Awards Ceremony takes place in a hotel ballroom, where food is being served, and liquor is constantly being brought out, that this awards show is a far cry from the dignified demeanor of th...

In Memoriam: Film Greats Take Their Last Curtain Calls

Monday, January 1, 2007------While a lot of ink (or bytes) will be spent on the films and performers who will win accolades in the busy awards season to come (from the Golden Globes through the Independent Spirit Awards to the Oscar extravaganza), it seems appropriate, on this first day of the New Year, to take a moment to list the celebrated actors, directors, producers and other film professionals who took their final curtain calls in 2006. We remember them all, and how wonderful that their ...

An Audience With Warren Beatty rom New York Fest

user
Warren Beatty would be the first to admit it. When he talks, he tends to ramble and to answer an interview question at such great length that both he and the questioner have forgotten the original query. At the press conference held on Tuesday afternoon at Alice Tully Hall, following the press screening of his masterpiece REDS, Beatty covered a lot of territory in a wise, witty and rambling style that had the audience eating out of his hand. Such is the power of the movie star who also happens t...

The Return of REDS

Thursday, September 28---It was one of the more audacious projects ever produced for a major studio. REDS, the politically-charged epic story of American radicals in the early years of the 20th century, was an unlikely film for Hollywood to have produced, especially at the dawn of the conservative Reagan era. The fact that it ever saw the light of day, and in fact become a critical and public success d'estime, is due entirely to the force of personality of its director/producer/star Warren Bea...
