Alec Baldwin on 'Fetid Septic Tank' Movie Biz

seduced and abandoned

NEW YORK - In "Seduced and Abandoned," Alec Baldwin and James Toback present a portrait of today's movie business and an elegy to what it once was. In person, Baldwin's even more candid, venting on tasteless studio executives, the pay for actors and the "fetid septic tank" of the movie business. Baldwin and Toback knocked around the Cannes Film Festival last year, documenting the humbling process of Hollywood deal-making and trying to get financing for a film. Baldwin, whose movie career has largely taken a back seat to TV (he has followed his Emmy-winning run on "30 Rock" with his recently launched MSNBC talk show, "Up Late With Alec Bal... more

myanmar villains

YANGON, Myanmar - In a dimly lit alley on a cramped side street of a teeming Southeast Asian city, the bad guys cluster together, plotting their next move. There is A Yaing Min, the "King of Cruelty," who twirls his mustache as he talks and cultivates a pointy beard with a pointed message: Mess with me, and I will end you. There is Myint Kyi, who has been dispatching enemies - typically with spears - since 1958. There is Phone Naing, muscular and sinewy in tight military pants, who talks only in a low snarl. Granted, these are not actual evildoers. They are longtime cinematic villains who gather each morning in a tightly packed enclave o... more

Mexico TV Star Shows Hollywood What Latinos Want

instructions not included

MEXICO CITY - Mexican comedian Eugenio Derbez jokes that it took him 12 years to become an overnight sensation. The real punch line is that it took much longer. The writer, director and star of the surprise Hollywood hit "Instructions Not Included" was a virtual unknown among the general audience in the U.S., where the film debuted on Labor Day weekend. Its success was shocking, climbing into the top five box office earners with only a limited release. It's pulled in more than $43 million so far in the U.S. alone, and roughly the same in Mexico. It cost just a bit over $5 million to make. The story of an Acapulco playboy whose former lo... more
