This is a Recap of the Boardwalk Empire Season 1 Finale, entitled “Return To Normalcy”, originally airing December 5th, 2010. It contains spoilers, so if you don’t want to know if Warren Harding wins the election, do not read on. It’s the Boardwalk Empire Season 1 Finale And Halloween Episode, all rolled into one: The Finale opens on Agent Van Alden, who, after drowning his partner Agent Baby to death last week in a baptism gone stupid, has decided to leave Atlantic city and begin auditioning replacements: His supervisor asks him to stay but Van Alden refuses, saying “There’s nothing for me here. No knocked-up one night stands, no…I don’t know, other things. Nothing.” He tells his wife he feels “unfulfilled,” and wants to leave the department to buy into his uncle’s feed business in Schenectady, aka Fulfillment City. (p.s. – I’d watch Michael Shannon in that HBO show instantly. »

Ep. 12 Preview
In the episode innocuously titled "Return to Normalcy," Election Day has arrived, and all of Atlantic City is bracing itself. It's a time for reflection, and Margaret (Kelly Macdonald) has come quite a long way from when she was a battered housewife. But does her new position -- with all its implications of power and sin -- sit well with her?
We're sure it'll all end happily and no one will scream or get offed in any violent way. Then again, the clip's "Retribution is coming" line doesn't bode well. Whose retribution? »

DVD Playhouse—November 2010
By Allen Gardner
Paths Of Glory (Criterion) Stanley Kubrick’s 1957 antiwar classic put him on the map as a major filmmaker. Kirk Douglas stars in a true story about a French officer in Ww I who locks horns with the military’s top brass after his men are court-martialed for failing to carry out an obvious suicide mission. A perfect film, across the board, with fine support from George Macready as one of the most despicable martinet’s ever captured on film, Ralph Meeker, and Adolphe Menjou, all oily charm as a conniving General. Also available on Blu-ray disc. Bonuses: Audio commentary by critic Gary Giddins; Excerpt from 1966 audio interview with Kubrick; 1979 interview with Douglas; New interviews with Jan Harlan, Christiane Kubrick, and producer James B. Harris; French television documentary on real-life case which inspired the film; Trailer. Widescreen. Dolby 1.0 mono.

We have four brief casting stories for you this morning. First up, the Winnipeg Free Press reports [via Bloody Disgusting] that Alice Eve (She’s Out of My League) has replaced Margarita Levieva in David Brooks’ Atm. Described as “Hitchcockian”, the film (written by Buried screenwriter Chris Sparling), centers on three co-workers (Eve, Brian Geraghty, and Peck) who make a late-night visit to an Atm and end up in a desperate fight for their lives when they become trapped by an unknown man.
THR reports that Ray Liotta has joined the cast of the comedy Wanderlust. Directed by David Wain (Role Models), the film centers on a couple (played by Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston) that escapes from their modern life in New York City for an existence in a hippie commune. The film costars Malin Akerman, »

There was once a time when folk in the film business stayed away from anything that was war-themed, but then some unique insight (The Messenger, The Hurt Locker) started to trickle in and I wouldn't say that the business is more receptive to the idea, but there appears to be a lot of room for unconventional exposes focusing on the apres war syndromes. I think we'll soon be adding Return to this list. Sometimes places don't change but the people do, Liza Johnson's short film filmography in the past decade as examined this and the flip-side as well and you could advance the notion that she's interested in the rapport that people have with their built environment. With this in mind, I'd say I'm even more enthusiastic about the Cinereach funded, Sundance Lab work-shopped project when Johnson recently mentioned to IndieWIRE that she'll be fitting her combat stressed lead »
