Roman Polanski Returns to Poland to Shoot Film About His Childhood

10 hours ago

Roman Polanski has returned to Poland for the first time since the country's top court rejected a U.S. extradition request last year to shoot a documentary about his life in wartime Krakow.

Polanski, who had long been sought by U.S. authorities after fleeing the country in the 1970s following a conviction for unlawful sexual intercourse with a 13-year-old girl, was again in the headlines earlier this month when a former German actress, Renate Langer, claimed the Oscar-winning director raped her in 1972.

Following last December's decision by Poland's Supreme Court to reject the U.S. extradition request, Polanski, who »

'Liberation Day': Film Review

10 hours ago

Ugis Olte and Morten Traavik's film purports to be a documentary, but it must surely be a put-on. Chronicling the events leading up to a concert performed by the Slovenian rock band Laibach in North Korea, the movie is so mind-bogglingly bizarre that one expects Sacha Baron Cohen's Borat to wander in at any time and make clear that it's all just a joke. That everything seen in Liberation Day happens to be true just makes the doc receiving its U.S. theatrical premiere at New York City's Film Forum all the more jaw-dropping.

Laibach was formed in Yugoslavia in 1980 »

Manhattan Da Rethinking Campaign Donations After Dropping Harvey Weinstein Case

10 hours ago

A furor over the Manhattan district attorney's decision to shut down a groping investigation of Harvey Weinstein two years ago is putting a spotlight on the Da's practice of taking campaign contributions from defense attorneys.

Cyrus Vance Jr. insists he doesn't let money influence his decisions, and his representatives say all donations are vetted for potential conflicts of interest, and some are refused. Moreover, accepting contributions from the defense bar is common among many prosecutors in New York state and beyond.

But the practice troubles many good-government watchdogs because of the doubts it can sow about the fairness »

In an essay for The New Yorker, Molly Ringwald reflected on her own experiences with sexual harassment in Hollywood, including an explicit comment once made by Jeffrey Katzenberg.

'Star Wars': Was the Han Solo Title Worth the Wait?

11 hours ago

Perhaps the most obvious response to Tuesday's reveal of the title for the next Star Wars Story — Solo — has less to do with the actual title itself and more to do with the secrecy surrounding it: Was there anyone who didn't think that the movie would be titled with some variation on Han Solo's name? Why such a long wait to confirm everyone's expectations?

The secrecy surrounding the title for Solo: A Star Wars Story — which has been in development for years, and in production since January — has been perhaps unreasonably intense, given that the »

Hollywood Confronts a Copyright Argument With Potential for Mass Disruption

16 hours ago

Are some of Hollywood's biggest movies from the past decade — Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Deadpool and Night at the Museum, among others — all copyright infringements because they were allegedly created with stolen technology?
