Justin Holcomb plays Teddy with a perfect blend of bravado and sincerity. Bob Laine’s Taft is just insecure enough to make this man a real person with real anxieties. Ivanna Cullinan skillfully hints...

Director Agnieszka Holland by Mark Veltman for the...
AT first the Polish film director Agnieszka Holland wanted nothing to do with the script that became “In Darkness,” a new drama based on the true story of Jews in Poland who escaped the Nazis by hiding in sewers. She had already made two films about the Holocaust, “Angry Harvest” in 1985 and “Europa Europa” in 1990, both of which were nominated for Academy Awards, and she had no desire to...
there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist thru any other medium and will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to clearly and directly, keep the channel open. - MARTHA GRAHAM

Dear American entertainment industry.

We did this for the times last week… You can read the article here http://www.nytimes.com/2011/07/17/movies/justin-timberlake-friends-with-benefits-bad-teacher.html I’m really proud of the intimacy Mark was able to get, letting him look like an artist rather than just a pop figure… He and his team were lovely.

The spelling and grammar mistakes (wait for it) are not intentional (well probably) but just for fun, let’s say they are, and leave it at that… My father always says “reality is plastic”. This may have influenced my point of view…
