Redford Swept Away in Shipwreck Saga 'All is Lost'

redford all is lost

CANNES, France - Robert Redford makes actions speak louder than words in shipwreck drama "All Is Lost." He doesn't have much choice. A man-versus-nature tale about a lone sailor adrift on the Indian Ocean, J.C. Chandor's movie has no dialogue, just a few lines of voiceover at the start and a couple of heartfelt expletives. Redford said he was excited by "the challenge of being solitary, alone, without having the crutch of words." The second feature from "Margin Call" director Chandor, "All Is Lost" is screening out of competition at Cannes, where both it and 76-year-old screen icon Redford got a warm reception Wednesday. The Independen... more

Douglas, Damon Dramatize a Steamy Showbiz Affair

michael douglas liberace

NEW YORK - The idea of Michael Douglas playing Liberace might seem nearly as outrageous as Liberace himself. Liberace, forever hailed as Mr. Showmanship, was the excess-to-the-max pianist-personality whose onstage and offstage extravagance were legendary and who wowed audiences in Las Vegas and worldwide to become the best-paid entertainer on the planet during his heyday from the 1950s to the 1970s. He was the forerunner of flashy, gender-bender entertainers like Elton John, David Bowie, Madonna and Lady Gaga even as he kept a tight lid on his gay private life, which he feared could have ended his career had it come out. (His fans never ... more

Toback, Baldwin Eye Cannes Movie-Making Underbelly

baldwin toback cannes

CANNES, France - A phrase you will hear often at Cannes is: "Let me run the numbers." The commercial underbelly of the Cannes Film Festival is a nonstop frenzy of deal-making in luxury hotels along the Croisette promenade and aboard yachts moored offshore. Films are pitched with various ingredients - a director, a script, a few stars - as agents and talent pursue international investors and domestic distributors to bankroll their movies. For director James Toback, any claims about the running of "the numbers" - of treating moviemaking as an analytical science - is blatant "pseudo research." "This is where you really need, desperately, a... more

Movie Review: The Hangover Part III

hangover 3 elevator

"Daring" isn't a word you would use very much to describe 2011's "The Hangover Part II," the disappointingly lazy, beat-for-beat rehash of the wild and wildly successful original "Hangover" from 2009. And yet, here we are with "The Hangover Part III," which runs a different sort of risk by going to darker and more dangerous places than its predecessors, both artistically and emotionally. It dares to alienate the very audience that made "The Hangover" the highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all time because, well, it isn't exactly a comedy. Sure, there are some outrageous lines and sight gags, mostly courtesy of Zach Galifianakis and Ken J... more

Movie Review: Fast & Furious 6

fast furious 6

Ever wonder what it would feel like to suddenly wake up in another universe? You could find out, perhaps, by joining the next space mission to another galaxy, or, slightly easier, you could go to your local multiplex and watch "Fast & Furious 6" without having seen the first five movies. Should you decide to undertake this anthropological experiment, you'd immediately discover there are things everyone except you already knows. For example: jokes about baby oil and big foreheads are very funny in this universe. Cars, of course, are the most important thing, and of course there are no speed limits. Weapons come next on the list, and the b... more
