Cathy Moriarty has never seen Raging Bull. “I mean, I’ve seen parts of it,” she says. “Just not in its entirety. Not in one sitting.” This is astonishing: Moriarty’s performance as Vikki Lamotta, wife of feral boxer Jake, is unforgettable. It is, of course, a savage film – but that’s not why she avoided it.
“It was the first time I’d heard my voice recorded,” she explains. “The film played and I said, ‘Who is that?’ They said, ‘It’s you.’ And I said, ‘That is not what I sound like. That sounds like a truck driver.’” The voice remains a wonder: a rasping aide-memoire of old New York. “I like it now,” she says. “It just took me a while. »

For years, Lee Ving, the vocalist and leader of impish punk bruisers Fear, has been teasing the release of a song the group recorded with John Belushi in 1981. He's finally putting out the tune — the appropriately snotty-sounding "Neighbors," which was supposed to accompany the Belushi movie of the same name — digitally on Halloween and as a special seven-inch in November. But even before the decades-long wait for its release, the origins of the recording were steeped in strife.
'The Audition' poster with Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro. Martin Scorsese short 'The Audition' pulled from Venice Film Festival No major international film festival is worth its mainstream U.S. media salt unless there's at least one screening featuring the latest work of a major Hollywood name. The Venice Film Festival is surely no exception, especially as it's the year's final internationally renowned European movie fest, held shortly before the fall – i.e., awards – movie season begins. Well, one work by a top Hollywood name will no longer be available at Venice: The Audition, a short film directed by and featuring veteran Martin Scorsese, has been pulled out. "We have just been informed by the production that due to unexpected technical problems the film could not be here in time," festival organizers said in a statement earlier today, Sat., Aug. 29, '15.

Leave it to David Beckham to pull off the James Dean look seamlessly. The famous soccer player stars in a short film for the British brand Belstaff—best known for their rocker-ready leather jackets.

"I've had a long relationship »

Throughout the vast history of cinema the profession of law enforcement has been portrayed heavily and made its mark on the big screen in both dramatic and comical fodder. Whether it be straight up cops and robbers or crooked officers on the take in gangster flicks or ant-hero gun-slinging loners trying to buck the system the presence of crime-busting cads never fail to add compelling, if not at times over-exaggerated, insight into the world of law-enforcing personalities.
The one element of the law-enforcing community that seems somewhat limited but still registers mightily in some cinematic arenas is the concept of the sheriff. Sheriffs do cast a prominent shadow in all sorts of fields in the movies: westerns, medieval times, contemporary country car-chasing farces and even some urban melodramas.
In Arresting Developments: Top Ten Sheriffs in the Movies we will take a look at some of the notable on-screen sheriffs in »
