Reese Witherspoon’s ‘Wild’ Premieres to Oscar Buzz in Telluride
Telluride, Colo. — Fox Searchlight’s world premiere of “Wild,” starring Reese Witherspoon, kicked off the 41st Telluride Film Festival on Friday, screening to a packed Chuck Jones theater audience that included Witherspoon, co-star Laura Dern, director Jean-Marc Vallee and surprise guest Oprah Winfrey.
The pre-screening buzz on the adventure drama was all about Witherspoon. It was deserved: she offers a tour de force performance that moves her solidly into the Oscar race in the best actress category, where she last won in 2006 for “Walk the Line.” But the film should compete in many other categories, including supporting actress for Dern, who plays Witherspoon’s mother.

Oppenheimer's 'Look of Silence' & Seidl's 'In the Basement' Shock Venice
It was a bright, sunny day in Venice until Ulrich Seidl brought it down. That’s no surprise given the Austrian director’s penchant for the odd, the quirky and the underside of things (“Paradise Hope/Faith/Love”). His latest, “Im Kellar (In the Basement),” literally goes underground with a sort of documentary survey of Austrian basement life. The title works on, er, two levels, as what goes on down there tends to be kitschy, kinky or Nazi (of course). Among the denizens of Seidl’s deep are an opera-singing gun-slinger; a Hitler-loving history and music buff, a dominatrix-slave couple who raise the level of eww; a woman who was abused by men and now enjoys sex only with men who take absolute charge and inflict pain (though of the "good" sort); a young zaftig woman and her small male friend who wows the ladies, he explains modestly, with his larger than normal, »

15 Greatest Songs about Working for A living
We can’t sign off for the long weekend without saluting the men and women who put labor into Labor Day. There’s been no shortage of songs written about the drudgery of working 9-to-5, and below, here’s a list of the 15 finest songs (oops, that just reminded us that we didn’t include R.E.M.’s “Finest Worksong”) devoted to describing how we spent most of our lives. So clock out, grab a beer, salute your fellow worker, and enjoy. And, if it’s not too much work, add your favorite song about work in the comments. 1. “9 to 5,” Dolly Parton (1980) A deceptively upbeat melody and Parton’s sweet delivery run counter to the dark sentiment of such lyrics as “Barely getting by/It’s all takin’ and no givin’/they just use your mind/and they never give you credit.” 2. “She Works Hard For The Money,” Donna Summer »

Review: Reese Witherspoon goes for it all in 'Wild'
Telluride - There is a moment near the end of "Wild" where Cheryl Strayed (Reese Witherspoon) runs into a young boy and his grandmother out on a weekend hike. Strayed has walked hundreds of miles on the Oregon Trail in an attempt to deal with personal, emotional pain that has plagued her most of her young adult life. After learning of Strayed's heartbreaks the young boy (Evan O'Toole) sings her the song "Red River Valley." In the hands of a lesser director this scene could have been overly saccharine and misplaced. But director Jean-Marc Vallée makes it as artful and touching as it needs to be. Clearly, we should not have doubted him. Vallée was one of the main creative forces of "Dallas Buyers Club," but did not earn a Best Director Oscar nod. Instead, he made due with an editing nomination. This was disheartening in some respects because there »
