Toronto Film Festival Marches On

Movie industry tries to stay ahead of the curve in a challenging marketplace

0 Comments · Wednesday, September 23, 2009
The Toronto International Film Festival is a movie geek's wet dream. The festival's avalanche of films (300-plus over 10 days) offered something for cinemaphiles of every stripe, including a typically healthy dose of new works by established filmmakers from across the globe. The prime example was Jason Reitman's slick yet affecting 'Up in the Air' (starring a never-better George Clooney) that confirms the young director is more than just Diablo Cody's 'Juno' bitch.

Oscar Nominees Announced

The nominees for the 84th annual Academy Awards were announced this morning. Local-boy-done-very-very-good George Clooney, as expected, is up for this year's Actor in a Leading Role trophy for his work in The Descendants, while The Ides of March scored Clooney another nod for best Adapted Screenplay (the only nomination for the largely-locally-filmed flick).

The Ides of March

George Clooney's political thriller doesn't quite transcend genre

0 Comments · Wednesday, October 5, 2011
Stephen Myers (Ryan Gosling) — the precociously successful political media consultant at the center of The Ides of March — knows how to handle his business. Sure, he might believe that the man he’s working for, Pennsylvania Gov. Mike Morris (George Clooney), is the best candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination and the man who can do the most to make America better. But he’s also just fine with feeding a specious allegation about their opponent to the media, just so it will require time spent to fight it off.” If you’re looking for a starry-eyed idealist in The Ides of March, whose utopian dreams might be crushed by harsh reality, you best look elsewhere.

Friday Movie Roundup: 'Ides of March' edition

George Clooney's The Ides of March opens today.

(If you answered “yes” to that question, read my interview with Ides of March actor Max Minghella here.) The burning question now is whether The Ides of March is any good.
