For the fourth consecutive year Hollywood has selected its Black List, a compilation of the top unproduced screenplays for 2009. Over 300 film professionals were asked to submit the titles of up to ten of their favorite screenplays. The only condition for the picks were that the projects would not be released in theaters this year. That means some of the Black List honorees may be in the process of being turned into movies but by far the majority remain thoughts on digital ink, a blueprint for grand dramatic ideas, high-reaching adventure and controversial ideas waiting to be burned to light.

For a screenplay to have made it onto the Black List it must have received at least five votes for it. Some scripts have five votes while the top-rated screenplay received 47 votes. That doesn't mean that the script with the most votes is the best screenplay of the year; it means »

Feature: The Curious Cameography of Matt Damon

8 January 2009 1:13 PM, PST | | See recent IFC news »

By Stephen Saito

When Stanislavsky decreed, "there are no small parts, only small actors," Matt Damon was listening. In a career that started with one line in "Mystic Pizza," Damon has risen to the ranks of the A-list. Yet as Damon's star has gotten bigger, the roles have gotten smaller -- most recently, the "Bourne" star reaffirmed his status as king of cameos with his brief appearance in "Che: Part II," in which he plays Father Schwartz, a German priest fluent in Spanish who attempts to negotiate with rebel forces in Bolivia, with screen time of less than a minute.
