Alec Baldwin: 'I was staring off a cliff'

He had a hit with 30 Rock, then Tina Fey called time on it. His first box office smash was followed by 'eight bombs in a row'. He's fallen out with his family, his ex-wife, his colleagues, the press and Twitter (three times). Is it any wonder Alec Baldwin's new film is a dig at the movie business?

Late one evening, Alec Baldwin enters a private dining room at a Japanese restaurant in downtown Manhattan. He is broad, with meaty forearms and a squarish head, his hair shooting up at the crest like a picket fence. Over the years, he has looked great and he has looked seedy, and at 55, he has settled into a well-rounded version of himself that comes with a new and much vaunted Zen attitude.

Harris Savides

Cinematographer at the forefront of digital experimentation and celebrated for his avant-garde work with Gus van Sant

Savides shot six features for Gus van Sant and collaborated with David Fincher, Sofia Coppola and Noah Baumbach. While directors frequently turned to him for a visual style redolent of 1970s American and European auteur cinema, Savides was at the forefront of digital experimentation. He shot Fincher's Zodiac (2007), the fastidiously detailed story of the real-life hunt for a serial killer

23 High School Movies That Get The Passing Grade

Considering it's where most of us (bar the weird home-schooled kids) spend our crucial formative years, where we have our first fights, our first loves, our first tentative steps into adulthood, it's no surprise that high school has long been a popular setting for movies. A range of genres (though generally leaning towards comedy) have taken place in those hallways, particularly from the 1980s onwards, when John Hughes, among others, made an entire career out of the lives and loves of 15-18 year olds.

The latest film to head back to class is "21 Jump Street" (review here) the big-screen reboot of the '80s TV show, which stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum as youthful-looking cops who are sent back to high school in order to bust a drug-running ring. While you might assume this to be another lazy remake, you'd be very wrong, as Tatum, Hill, co-writer Michael Bacall,
