Justin Chang: Andrew, if you’ll allow me a brief (sort of) digression before we get down to business: A few nights ago, as part of our foolhardy mission to rank the films of Richard Linklater, I watched “Waking Life” for the first time since I’d seen it at a college screening in 2001. Back then, we were both sophomores at USC (though we didn’t know each other at the time), and presumably of the ideal age and mindset to groove on the film’s kaleidoscopic visuals and similarly trippy discourse. I recall having been more bored than seduced at the time, though I’m happy to say that my very different reaction following this second viewing — which began around midnight, all the better to cultivate the optimal bleary-eyed dream state — was enough to move “Waking Life” a few notches up my own list.
At a certain point late into the movie, »

Holy hell, has it really been twenty-five years since everyone stood up triumphantly on their desks saying "O captain! My captain!" and we all cried when Neil committed suicide in "Dead Poets Society"? Time really flies, but here's a capsule from the era that's well worth looking at for fans of the movie. Moviemaker Magazine has dug up a really vintage and interesting piece of footage circa filming of Peter Weir's movie. A travelogue of sorts, it finds Robert Sean Leonard, Ethan Hawke, Dylan Kussman, Josh Charles, Gale Hansen, James Waterston and Allelon Ruggiero heading into New York City, where they were all (except two of them) auditioning for the forgotten Ted Danson/Jack Lemmon vehicle "Dad" (Hawke would eventually win the role, fyi). And it's a travelogue of sorts, of a bunch of very young, rising actors hanging out together and having the time of their lives. “Allelon Ruggiero »

What we have hear is a video more deserving of the 'Cool Videos' moniker than most. Back during the production of Dead Poets Society, the poets themselves, (Ethan Hawke, Robert Sean Leonard, Dylan Kussman, Josh Charles, Gale Hansen, James Waterston and Allelon Ruggiero) took a break from filming to go audition in New York for a role in the film Dad (the part went to Hawke). Only five of them were auditioning, but the entire crew went and they took a camera with them to chronicle the »

In the summer of 1989, Dead Poets Society was in theaters making moviegoers laugh, cry, and learn Latin. The Best Picture nominee earned an Oscar for screenwriter Tom Schulman, as well as nods for director Peter Weir and Robin Williams, who stars as English teacher John Keating—the man who taught more than just his prep-school students the meaning of the phrase carpe diem (“seize the day”). It was also the breakout film for Robert Sean Leonard (tortured Neil Perry), Ethan Hawke (shy Todd Anderson), and Josh Charles (romantic Knox Overstreet). Charles discussed some of his fond memories in an interview with EW. »

Falling Skies' real-world elements are a better hook than its sci-fi fantasy, argues Ron...
This review contains spoilers.
4.2 The Eye
When Karen was a crucial member of the Espheni forces, their lapses in judgment made sense. After all, Karen might have been smart and knew the ways of the human, but she also had all the downfalls of the human, especially her connection to Hal Mason and company. Even with Karen gone, it seems as though the menacing alien collective that has invaded the Earth—skitters, fishheads, bugs, mechs, and mega-mechs—is obsessed with Tom Mason rather than, say, the Volm, their long-time enemies who are aiding the humans in their guerrilla war versus the Eshpheni conquest machine.
Of the many things going on in the show, the least interesting to me has to be the story of Lexi, played as an adult by Scarlett Byrne (Pansy Parkinson »

Peter Weir's much-loved drama stars Robin Williams as John Keating, an English teacher who brings his unconventional but inspirational methods to a stuffy private school in late-1950s Vermont. Ethan Hawke and Robert Sean Leonard are among the students who take his teachings to heart in this drama that succeeds almost entirely down to Williams's inspired performance. RoboCop villain Kurtwood Smith is among the parents and teachers who don't like what they're hearing. »
Taking stock of an actor’s legacy on the stage is trickier than summing up a career on screen. After all, we can all go back and watch a film performance with the click of a mouse or by sliding in a DVD. Movies are endlessly available to us. The stage, on the other hand, is a living thing that varies from night to night. Some nights are magical, others less so. But when a show’s run ends, so does its life. It can be remembered, but not relived.
Maybe that’s why I feel incredibly lucky to be »

New York’s acting community will dim the lights of Broadway theater marquees for exactly one minute on Wednesday at 7:45 p.m. in remembrance of Philip Seymour Hoffman, who died early Sunday morning at age 46.
In addition to his celebrated film career, Hoffman was a thoroughly accomplished stage actor and director, serving as a former Artistic Director of Off Broadway’s LAByrinth Theater Company, where he directed and appeared in a number of well-received productions.
Hoffman appeared on Broadway three times, each performance earning the actor both Tony and Drama Desk Award nominations. 2000 marked his first appearance, opposite John C. Reilly »
