Jennifer Jason Leigh is as radiant and uncompromising as ever in the role of a guilt-ridden war photographer in the convoluted psychological mystery-thriller “The Moment.” This well-titled debut feature from helmer/co-writer Jane Weinstock indeed functions best from moment to moment, its characters interacting in a convincing present tense. Unfortunately, the film continually resists coherence or synthesis, with puzzles left unresolved amid multiplying possibilities and highly repetitive flashbacks, yielding a mystery that wearies rather than intrigues; as a result, none of the hypotheses offered here carries much weight or generates much suspense. Nevertheless, Leigh’s strong, enveloping performance alone should assure the film limited theatrical release.
Moving back and forth in time to deliberately confusing effect, the film opens with shutterbug Lee (Leigh) at the home of her ex-boyfriend John (Martin Henderson) to pick up her cameras. But the house is eerily empty, abandoned mid-meal, with flies and decay all around. »

This year's White House Correspondents' Dinner will be hosted by talk show funny man Conan O'Brien. As usual, the stars will be out in full force, with celebrities living the dinner tables of various news outlets.
Recently, veteran newsman Tom Brokaw thinks that the some celebrities who are invited to the dinners make a mockery of the event. The final straw for him was Lindsay Lohan attending the 2012 dinner. "She became a big star at the White House Correspondents Dinner. Give me a break," Brokaw says.
No Lohan scheduled for this year, but the names of those appearing cover the spectrum of television and film. The cast of "Modern Family," along with two stars from the upcoming "X-Men: Days of Future Past" are among the highlights.
The full list of celebrity guests at the White House Correspondents' Dinner is below:
Jennifer Jason Leigh has a delicious history of playing characters right on — or beyond — the edge, from Rush to Single White Female to Dolores Claiborne. In The Moment, a psychological drama that has its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on Sunday, she plays a Lee, a war photographer trying to balance her demanding career with her role as a mother, who doubts her own sanity after her estranged ex-boyfriend (Martin Henderson) goes missing. “Her initial reaction is to think that she killed him because of her guilt about him and about other things as well,” says co-writer and director Jane Weinstock. »

I'm not sure what in the hell is going on in this trailer for The Power of Few, but one thing I do know is that Christopher Walken wants to clone Jesus. This is such a crazy weird trailer, and I'm not sure if it's supposed to be a drama or a comedy, or what, but it's some kind of crime thriller.
Spies, cops, holy fools and well-armed children cross paths on a day of danger, mystery and possible transformation. "The Power of Few" unfolds through the lives of five unusual characters who unknowingly are connected to an extraordinary smuggling operation on a day when religious conspiracy and urban crime collide.
This doesn't even seem like a movie! But, it is, and it was directed by Leone Marucci. It also has an impressive cast of actors that includes Christian Slater, Anthony Anderson, Jesse Bradford, Q'orianka Kilcher, Moon Bloodgood, Nicky Whelan, »

It's Sunday night, freezing, and most major industry businesses are about to creak back to full power the next morning after a long holiday break -- the perfect time for a champagne jumpstart to this first of many awards weeks to come. As Golden Globe nominee Connie Britton ('Nashville") caught up with Kate Bosworth over Brancott Estate wines on the patio at Cecconi's, "Homeland's" late Abu Nasir (Navid Neghaban) could barely polish off tiramisu at his corner table without interruption, infinitely more popular than he was at the same Audi Golden »

This marks story two this week of a Homeland baddie getting recast elsewhere. Zuleikha Robinson has landed a guest spot on The Mentalist this season. Let’s face it, acting on Homeland is a very worthwhile resume bullet.

You have heard it right here that there will be a CSI, CSI: NY crossover event. It revolves around a missing person. Too bad, for Negahban’s Zane Kalim. I wouldn’t want to be hunted by both Gary Sinise »

You just can't kill those Homeland villains.
The actress will portray a scientist named Sonia Kidd, someone who specializes in the biological roots of murder and who interacts with Jane, Lisbon and company when one of her best students turns up dead.
