The Unknown Woman (2006)
The Dardenne brothers are double-Palme winners at Cannes, justly renowned for their moving and socially acute realist dramas. Everything they do has to be of interest, and their latest work here, The Unknown Girl, has moments of insight, flashes of perception. But it is not their best work, and very far from the heights achieved in 2014 with their blistering workplace picture Two Days, One Night. The Unknown Woman is an odd, dramatically stilted and passionless quasi-procedural concerning a mysterious death; it depends on a series of unconvincing, and in fact borderline-preposterous, encounters and features a bafflingly inert performance from Adèle Haenel, whose usual spark appears to have been doused by self-consciousness.

Geoffrey Rush and Jim Sturgess are set to star in "The Best Offer." Details are pretty scarce, but the film is said to be an "art auction world drama" set in Vienna and the Alps that will start shooting at the end of the month. But adding a bit of excitement to the news is the mentoin that 83-year-old master composer
HollywoodNews.com: “The Town” is a film that is crippled by its own fairytale desires. While the picture pertains to be a character-driven drama about a Boston bank robber and his desire to go straight, it is undone by a refusal to even acknowledge that its lead character has anything to truly atone for. It is one thing to have a sympathetic portrait of an anti-hero as he struggles to be decent in a world that values his indecency. But it is another to take a straight-up criminal and convince us that he is actually some kind of hero. As a result, the key relationships don’t work, the action scenes lack suspense, and the audience is left with no reason to care about the outcome.
A token amount of plot: Doug MacRay (Ben Affleck) is a brains behind a four-person robbery team that operates in Boston.
Moderator Nicole Sperling asked the women if they were into comics or other geek stuff when they were kids. Torv used to dress up as Wonder Woman, while Malone and Wong preferred the Disney princess/heroines. Asked how hard it has been to get roles, Mitchell said she auditioned seven times and fought hard to play Juliet. On the other hand, she was given the role of Erika in V, which she found more terrifying. For Wong, nothing ever just falls into your lap, one has to fit for everything. She just tried to be herself in her audition for a Knives Chau, because she felt close to the character.
Garcia, the son of famed author Gabriel García Márquez, has carved his own artistic niche in a career directing both prestige television and film. Besides sheparding the HBO’s favorites “The Sopranos,” “Six Feet Under” and “Carnivále” at various points, Garcia also produced and help develop the HBO adaptation of “In Treatment.”
His films are characterized by their human relationship elements, including “Things You Can Tell Just by Looking at Her’  and “Nine Lives,” which Garcia also wrote. Mother and Child is his fourth film directed from his own screenplay.

The star, 37, wed Cornelius Grobbelaar in August, 2006 but the couple officially split on 7 May.
Caulfield has since moved to make the separation official after citing irreconcilable differences in legal papers filed last week (ends14May10) at Los Angeles Superior Court.
The actress is the second former Buffy castmember whose marriage has hit the headlines in recent weeks - earlier this month, David Boreanaz confessed to cheating on his wife of nine years, Jaime Bergman, with an anonymous mistress.
The other woman has since been revealed as nightclub hostess Rachel Uchitel - one of the many women linked to disgraced golfer Tiger Woods during his affair scandal.
We'll get started with Mark's case against season six:
Let me start of by stating that I have been with Lost since the beginning. Literally. I
"I am living in my apartment with Annette and my children as a family and a couple," Lauer tells People.com in an interview from France, where he's been co-anchoring the NBC morning show from the Cannes Film Festival. "I have never moved out. I am not moving out.
For an industry obsessed with perfection, there’s this radical idea in Hollywood that says things cannot go smoothly in movies, especially when it comes to love. Crazy, I know.
Of course, in comic book films you have supervillains to create instant drama for you — but when it comes to sequels and subsequent follow-ups, creators always feel the need to add more fuel to the fire. And as a sexy spy/assassin, Scarlett Johansson’s character in “Iron Man 2,” Black Widow, is practically plutonium.
"I was more concerned about the interpersonal dynamic and how the presence of [Johansson's character] would affect Tony and Pepper," director Jon Favreau told MTV News.
No gimmicks here – just the chance to see some world-class Italian films from directors old and new. From veteran Enzo Castellari, director of the original Inglourious Basterds, comes Eagles Over London, the film that invented the "macaroni combat" genre by dazzlingly recreating the Battle Of Britain. There's also a four-film tribute to legendary actor Vittorio Gassman – Il Mattatore, as he's affectionately known – with screenings of the little-seen swashbuckler For Love And Gold and the original Scent Of A Woman, which won Gassman the Best Actor award in Cannes. More recent titles include director Federico Bondi's Mar Nero, a touching tale of the relationship between an elderly lady and her youthful carer, and Cinema Paradiso director Giuseppe Tornatore's dark, modern thriller The Unknown Woman. And, for the more traditional, there's a screening of everyone's favourite Italian classic, La Dolce Vita.

So far so good with the IMDb250 project with little problem so far getting the films from the list and a whole lot of fun watching them. Barry has been making great use of his films recently by watching his movies in categories with the New Hollywood and War sections being brilliant to read.
It’s something I wish we planned at the start as putting the films in some sort of order or genre category would have made connecting the films really interesting but on the other hand watching such a random collection of films in a short space of time really is fascinating to experience different actors in different genre’s lead by different directors proving why they apparently deserve to be in the top 250 films of all time.
My next five films showcase the pleasure in my randomness of choice as
Diana Landen: Our husbands ogle the pictures of the Other Women (a.k.a. tramps), then reassure us that Ashley Dupre -- or Michelle McGee -- isn't really pretty.
Experts give us advice on how to keep our men faithful. You would think that advice for our husbands would be more useful. (On the other hand, would men read "Comparing You to Gandhi is a Sign of Insanity, Not Love," or "How to Keep 13 Mistresses Happy and Quiet"?)
Eventually, we hear from the excuse-makers: "Everybody cheats," "Monogamy is unnatural," "Males need to spread their seed" and "It's just evolution."
Gentlemen, we have evolved, too. Women who accepted cheating died out a long time ago. The Other Woman is, quite simply, a threat to our children.
Sex makes babies.
Diana Landen: It's easy to hate Rielle Hunter. She won't "emasculate" John Edwards by telling the truth, but she's happy to publicly slam a dying woman. She justifies her own cruelty with some warped concept of "force fields" of love. Easy to hate her ... but not good for me. I'm trying to figure out why I obsess over her. My husband gets offended: Am I suggesting that he would act like John Edwards? He reminds me that this doesn't have anything to do with my life. But it does.
A good friend of mine from high school -- someone I truly respected -- had an affair with a much younger employee. His marriage broke up,
That's one way of describing "The Last Exorcism," a new horror film produced by Eli Roth ("Hostel") that has just been picked up for distribution by Lionsgate, according to Variety. Formerly titled "Cotton," the film, which premieres at SXSW next month, brings the faux-doc method to a story of an Evengelical priest (Patrick Fabian) who invites a film crew to document his final exorcism. According to a Lionsgate executive, "audiences
