Trailer: Gordon-Levitt, Portman & Wilson in ‘Hesher’

I’ve been curious about Hesher since it debuted at Sundance in 2009. It’s finally getting a theatrical release on April 15th and here’s the first trailer. Here’s the official blurbage: Loud music. Pornography. Burning shit to the ground. These are a few of Hesher’s favorite things.  And they are what Hesher(Joseph Gordon Levitt) brings into the lives (read…)

Black Swan (2010)

A sensuous and darkly beautiful psycho-sexual fairytale with a fantastic central performance by Natalie Portman.

Your soon-to-be-Oscar-winner Natalie Portman on Letterman

I know it’s ridiculous to start calling Oscars before the nominations have even been announced, but sometimes if you say something loud enough and often enough, it comes true.

Trailer #2: Brothers

The second trailer for Brothers, Jim Sheridan’s remake of Susanne Bier’s Brødre, is a modest improvement over the first, but it still kind of looks like unbearable melodrama. Natalie Portman plays a woman who believes her husband was killed in war. She takes up with brother-in-law Jake Gyllenhaal only to find out her husband Tobey (read…)

TIFF ’09: Portman, Ozon and Caine

The reviews are coming fast and furious out of Toronto so let’s get right back to it. Love and Other Impossible Pursuits. Based on Ayelet Waldman’s novel, Don Roos’ irritatingly titled new film starring Natalie Portman sounds like a bit of an emotional slog frankly. Cute as a button Portman seems to be getting good (read…)
