Imagine you’re a 21 year old senior cinema major at USC (school of cinematic arts). And you’re trying to break into the film industry without having to date David Geffen or Barry Diller.

Enemy, the latest cinematic pairing of director, Denis Villeneuve, and his Prisoners leading man, Jake Gyllenhaal, is anything but your average Hollywood fare. Filled with ominous foreshadowing, creepy imagery (hello tarantulas!) and a plot that laughs in the face of linear storytelling, this tale of dueling doppelgangers unfolds instead like a fever dream, luring the […]
Remaking a movie is like this old joke: dating your wife after you divorced her is like drinking curdled milk, putting it in the refrigerator and thinking that it will once again leave a good taste in your mouth. Here’s something that could be also be seen as tasteless: The news out that Steven Spielberg […]
In an all too- stark reminder of how dangerous making a film can be, Sarah Elizabeth Jones, 27, a native of West Columbia, SC, died while working as a camera assistant on “Midnight Rider,” a film based on the life of R&R singer Gregg Allman (starring William Hurt as the Allman Brothers singer in his […]
