Brian De Palma has become the directorial litmus test of cinephiles everywhere. To supporters, he stands as a startling visual genius with a penchant for set pieces and lurid subject matter. To naysayers, he remains a lowbrow imitator who spends his studio budgets chasing the ghosts of Alfred Hitchcock and Jean-Luc Godard. Great director or high class hack? Inconsistent misogynist or Master of the Macabre? Much like his fractured narratives, the answer is never an easy one to attain.
Both sides provide ample support for their case. De Palma’s resume is riddled with enough hollow imitations (Sisters , Raising Cain ) and bloated commercial flops (The Bonfire of the Vanities , The Black Dahlia ) to sink any director. But even in misfires such as these, an undeniable attention to detail remains.
The split screen cover-up of Sisters or the heartbreaking screen tests of The Black Dahlia are breathtaking in scope and execution, »

Ray Donovan season finale recap Season 3, Episode 12 “Exsuscito” (original air date Sept. 27, 2015): It was an emotionally draining close to the season.

Avi (Steven Bauer) secretly brings Paige to a penthouse where Ray (Liev Schreiber) is waiting; he advises her to stay there until things settle down. There are more helicopters outside the Finney house than when O.J. took his white Bronco down the 405, Paige tells him. “They love to see the mighty fall.” Ray assures her that she … Continue reading →

Ray Donovan Season 3 Promo 2. Showtime‘s Ray Donovan: Season 3 TV show trailer 2 star Paula Malcomson, Eddie Marsan, Dash Mihok, Steven Bauer, and Katherine Moennig. Ray Donovan: Season 3’s plot synopsis: “Season three finds Ray adrift from his family and those closest to him, while he focuses on his business and desires to be his own boss. Meanwhile, his father Mickey (Jon Voight, in his Emmy-nominated and Golden Globe-winning role), who had narrowly escaped last season’s heist debacle, finds himself charting a similar course to build his own empire.”
This season looks like it will be good. I’ve seen the first episode (review coming soon) and can personally attest to the fact that the first episode is entertaining.

Showtime has just released the full trailer for Ray Donovan Season 3, in which the titular Hollywood fixer, played by a reliably pickled Liev Schreiber, takes on a new client in the personage of Ian McShane's Malcolm Finney. The trailer focuses mainly on how Ray's relationship with Finney, including his daughter, Paige (Katie Holmes), leads to him to (yet again) reconsider his choice of profession. That doubt, per usual, becomes twice as potent when he gets involved with his father, Mickey (Jon Voight), who continues his own side of the dirty business at hand. The series seems to be building to another blowout between Ray and Mickey, as Malcolm Finney's line about happy families feels like a direct parallel with what the Donovan family has been weathering for the last two seasons. [caption id="attachment_362605" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Showtime[/caption] More interesting is the trailer's insinuation that the incarceration of Terry, Ray's brother, played »

Lawyers in motion pictures have been portrayed as one of two extremes, devils or angels, almost since celluloid was invented. The first film dealing specifically with a law firm and attorneys, 1933’s Counsellor at Law, starring John Barrymore, portrayed its J.D.s as upstanding citizens, as did the early Perry Mason films of the same period. This quickly changed, however, with many attorneys portrayed as being capable of the same brand of skullduggery as their shifty clients. With that in mind, we bring you a list of the good, the bad and the ugly of lawyers in movies. Enjoy, and please refrain from suing us if you feel otherwise...

Saturday Night Live not only makes people laugh, it brings families closer together! Don Johnson joined ex-wife Melanie Griffith at Lax in Los Angeles this week to fly out to New York City and watch their daughter Dakota host the NBC variety show for the first time on Saturday. It's been several years since the Miami Vice star, 65, and Griffith, 57, have been seen in public together. The couple first wed and split in 1976, reunited in 1989 when Griffith gave birth to Dakota, then separated in 1994. They briefly reconciled a later year before finally going their separate ways. Griffith also has a son, »
Dakota Johnson comes from a rich background of actors and actresses and is now starting to truly flourish as one herself. Born on October 4th 1989, the 25-year-old star of Fifty Shades of Grey is the daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, while her stepfather’s from her mother’s later relationships include Steven Bauer and Antonio Banderas.
Having started her acting career in 1999’s Crazy In Alabama, Johnson has gone on to appear in a number of big movies, such as The Social Network, 21 Jump Street and Need For Speed, but had gone largely under the radar prior to her (somewhat surprising) casting as Anastasia Steele in this year’s adaptation of E. L. James’ incredibly popular erotic novel.
Her profile and career are set to explode following the huge box office success of Fifty Shades of Grey (in spite of its somewhat mixed critical reception), so »

Nothing cuter than a doting dad! On the heels of Dakota Johnson's debut in "Fifty Shades of Grey," proud mom Melanie Griffith shared an adorable throwback photo of the actress as a child with her famous father, Don Johnson. "Dakota and her Daddy!!! Love them so much!! 1993," Griffith captioned the Instagram pic of the the actor nibbling on his little girl's toes. "Daddy's girrrrrrl." Griffith and Johnson split back in 1976, just six months after getting hitched. The veteran actress married and divorced actor Steven Bauer before remarrying the "Miami Vice" star in 1989. The couple welcomed Dakota later that year ... and then divorced again in 1996. Despite a recent split from husband Antonio Banderas, Melanie says she's in a great place. "I'm going to do a lot of things," she told IndieWire. "It's not about my career now. It's just about finding great work and having a good time. My kids are almost grown. »

She’ll be a “major guest star” on the Liev Schreiber series, cable channel touts
“Ray Donovan” is a hit for Showtime, and is its second highest-rated drama, »

Ray Donovan has to be one of my favourite shows on TV at the moment. The unrelenting, tense action and brilliant storylines in a show headed by the rather watchable Liev Schreiber, makes it unmissale every week. Production on season three is just about to get underway in Los Angeles, and news reaches us this morning that one of Britain’s great character actors has joined the cast.
Ian McShane, who has appeared in the likes of Hercules, Sexy Beast, Cuban Fury and the legendary TV series Deadwood, which pretty much catapulted him to Hollywood notoriety, will play a billionaire movie producer in the next season who hires Schreiber’s Donovan to help him get out of a bit of a pickle.
