Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Corporate Greed Is Bad for Your Health and for the Health of Democracy

'The Insider' movie: Al Pacino and Russell Crowe 'The Insider' movie: 1999 exposé of CBS news show barks, but doesn't bite Michael Mann's 1999 movie The Insider quote exchange: "It's old news. ... We'll be ok," says Don Hewitt (Philip Baker Hall), the creator of the CBS news show 60 Minutes. "These things have a half-life of 15 minutes." "No, that's fame," replies 60 Minutes anchor Mike Wallace (Christopher Plummer). "Fame has a 15-minute half-life. Infamy lasts a little longer." The infamous "things" referred to by Hewitt and Wallace are the series of scandals that erupted in early 1996, when it was revealed that CBS had refused to air an interview with a tobacco company whistleblower because the network feared the (financial) consequences. What Freedom of the Press? Based on Marie Brenner's Vanity Fair article about the events that led up to that embarrassing – and disturbing – incident, The Insider tells the story of scientist Jeffrey Wigand »

Audacious Indie Childless Lets a Great Cast Be Shallow in the Face of Death

12 May 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Grief unleashes self-centered bluster instead of contemplative sorrow in the talky drama Childless. Four relatives preparing to attend a funeral focus less on the sudden death of sixteen-year-old Katherine (Natalie Dreyfuss) and more on relationship anxieties. Mary (Diane Venora) envisions an awkward reunion with ex-boyfriend Richard (Joe Mantegna), Katherine's stunned father, while his sister Natalie (Barbara Hershey) contemplates her future with distant husband Harvey (James Naughton). Writer-director Charlie Levi airs their musings as a series of monologues, and even Katherine gets in on the act. With a surprising lightness, Dreyfuss plays her as a blithe spirit free from earthly worries, unlike the exasperating adults fixated on their own concerns. Na »

Monterey Media Acquires Award-Winning Drama 'Childless'

30 March 2015 9:56 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Monterey Media Acquires True Crime Drama 'The Pardon' Monterey media has acquired U.S. and Canadian distribution rights to writer-director Charlie Levi's award-winning drama "Childless," starring Joe Mantegna, Barbara Hershey, Diane Venora and James Naughton. The film won the Visionary Award at the Boston Film Festival during an initial test screening. The uniquely styled drama centers on four adults in the aftermath of the sudden passing of a teenage girl. As each gets ready for the funeral, they speak their private thoughts directly to the camera in an attempt to understand and justify the current states of their own lives. It's ultimately left up to the viewer to make sense of these off-kilter, self-serving, yet frequently humorous personal accounts. "We are so very thrilled to be on board with these wonderful actors and this distinctive film with its interesting history," commented Scott Mansfield, Managing Partner of monterey. »
