The trailer form the "drama/mystery/thriller" Fabled. Joseph just broke up with his girlfriend and is not taking it very well. He thinks she is plotting against him with their mutual psychiatrist. On top of that, his dog is missing and he suspects the people at work might be behind it. Then there is the unshakable guilt over his past. It just might all be bearable, somehow possible to live through, if it weren't for those damned 'monsters' that keep trying to kill him. Through an allegorical 'fable' that is told in parallel with Joseph's struggle, we are left to decide for ourselves in the end, who is the crow and who is the wolf. Is someone “out to get” Joseph or is it all in his head?

The trailer for Kontroll:
  • This is the first film made in which every single person associated with the picture is named Laszlo.
  • OK, that was a dumb "Hungarian Joke" - here's the real scoop on the picture: "Who has not felt at a given moment during his or her long or a short life that he or she should simply step out of his or her usual surroundings? To hide from the world? To flee from the past, from himself or herself and from the present? To disappear from the face of the earth? This moment has just occurred. The question, however, is whether there is a way back."

Blue State Blues as Coastal Parents Battle Invasion of Dollywood Values. "I'm not sure where we went wrong," says Ellen McCormack, nervously fondling the recycled paper cup holding her organic Kona soy latte. "It seems like only yesterday Rain was a carefree little boy at the Montessori school, playing non-competitive musical chairs with the other children and his care facilitators. But now..." she pauses, staring out the window of her postmodern Palo Alto home. The words are hesitant, measured, bearing a tale of family heartbreak almost too painful for her to recount. "But now, Rain insists that I call him Bobby Ray."

A new trailer form Clean. "Emily Wang (Maggie Cheung) is a woman who wrestles with her dream of becoming a singer, her fitness as a mother, and daily life without her partner Lee (James Johnston). Her past is riddled with drugs and regrets, the result of which left Lee dead in a desolate motel room in Hamilton, Ontario, and landed Emily with a six-month jail sentence. The only thing that she desires for the future is a loving relationship with her son Jay, who is being cared for by Lee's parents, Albrecht (Nick Nolte) and Rosemary (Martha Henry). While Rosemary blames Emily for the death of Lee, Albrecht recognizes the importance of the bond between a mother and her son, and his faith sets the standard for the faith Emily must find in herself. Clean follows Emily to Hamilton, Paris, London and San Francisco and in three languages (English, French and Cantonese), as she battles for a place in a world reluctant to forget the woman she has been and unwilling to accept her as the woman she longs to be."

Several more clips from 2046: "He was a writer. He thought he wrote about the future but it really was the past. In his novel, a mysterious train left for 2046 every once in a while. Everyone who went there had the same intention -to recapture their lost memories. It was said that in 2046, nothing ever changed. Nobody knew for sure if it was true, because nobody who went there had ever come back - except for one. He was there. He chose to leave. He wanted to change."

GOP may change rule to aid DeLay. "House Republicans proposed changing their rules Tuesday night to allow members indicted by state grand juries to remain in a leadership post". Why stop there? Even if he is convicted and jailed, I don't see why DeLay can't run the House from the Big House.

Blimey, that clip is so tame I can't believe anyone could complain about it. I suppose post-Bush reelection means an ever sharper swing to the opinions of the religious right...

Come on people, what is the big deal here. This is one area where I think Europe is much more enlightened: nudity is natural, violence should be shunned. Who knows how it got reversed in this country ...

I have a hard time believing that the sight of a bare breast can harm a child. I do believe that explicit sex should not be shown to anyone younger than 13 or so, but the puritanical beliefs about nudity and our bodies can only be more damaging in the long run. They seem pretty well-adjusted over there in Europe, when it comes to sex and nudity.

 

"Over the last few days I've spoken to four cinephile types at different times who've seen Alexander, and they've all agreed that one undisputed highlight is the appearance of Rosario Dawson's world-class breasts, as captured by Rodrigo Prieto's widescreen camera during an acrobatic lovemaking scene with star Colin Farrell. Dawson should get some kind of special award, one suggested. "She should have topless scenes in every film she's in for the next ten years," said another."

Back on e-bay: "half of a 10-year-old grilled cheese sandwich that (she says) has an image of the Virgin Mary on it." Presumably it is made with Baby Swiss cheese. We assume this because (1)she is the Mother of Baby Cheeses; (2) We all know Swiss cheese is holey.

It seems that the pop star formerly associated with Gary Sheffield's wife is R. Kelly, but Kelly has nothing to do with the threat to make the tapes public. In fact, the article implies that the tapes may not even exist at all. "The FBI affidavit does not say whether the videotapes actually existed or whether Mosley's alleged remarks might have been part of a bluff." (Mosley is the alleged extortionist.)
