William Masters and Virginia Johnson are now known as two pioneers of research into human sexuality. In 2013, such research is considered normal, but when the duo met up in 1957 and began their study – at that time, Johnson was Masters’ research assistant – it bordered on the unthinkable. Showtime’s MASTERS OF SEX, Sundays at 10 PM, developed by Michelle Ashford based on Thomas Maier’s nonfiction book, chronicles the beginnings of the complex relationship between Masters and Johnson, as well as how they went about their research and what they learned. Michael Sheen plays Masters and Lizzy Caplan plays […]Read On »

A PLACE IN HEAVEN ©2013 Movie Plus Productions

With more than 300 films to choose from during the Toronto Film Festival a great deal of planning and luck figure equally into the mix. The best is when you give up on one film and just randomly drop into another screening. Here’s my four happy accidents of 2013 after I ran (nearly) screaming from several films that will remain nameless including a 3-D mountain climbing Australian documentary and a dreary drugs-are-bad drama set in the early 1980s.

THE UNKNOWN KNOWN | ©2013 Weinstein Company

It’s time to conclude what happened at the Toronto International Film Festival by dividing up the films into three categories. So here are the winners, losers and something in-between so just for fun I’ve broken them down into buzz terms, HOT, WARM and COLD. Part 3: THE COLD (BUZZ+CRITICAL REACTION+AUDIENCE COMMENTS) YOU ARE HERE Road trip comedy drama with Owen Wilson and Zach Galifianakis CONSENSUS: Writer/director Matthew Weiner’s surprising limp big screen debut. The leads are irritating, the plot so-so, the overall effect dull. Maybe Weiner just too tired after obsessing over every MAD MAN detail. Would make a good […]Read On »

Bruce Boxleitner is sitting in an empty function room at the Beverly Hilton, giving one on one interviews during the Television Critics Association press tour. He takes a throat lozenge, explaining that he’s fending off a cold. “I was down at Comic-Con – that’s why I’m just totally fatigued, I never stopped for four days, and then flew right to Canada and went to work. So these are good problems to have.” Boxleitner is famed for his work in science-fiction films and TV – he’s the title character (and his human doppelganger Alan Bradley) in TRON and TRON: LEGACY, valiant […]Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Chris Hemsworth, Daniel Bruhl, Olivia Wilde, Alexandra Maria Lara, Pierfrancesco Favino Writer: Peter Morgan Director: Ron Howard Distributor: Universal Pictures Release Date: September 20, 2013 RUSH describes both the motion of the Formula One race cars at the center of this film, and the emotion their drivers get when racing them. It does not describe the pace of the film, although RUSH proceeds at a smooth pace, nor the sensation most of the audience will experience, albeit it’s perfectly watchable. For much of the 1970s, there was a rivalry both on-track and off (the professional rivalry is […]Read On »
