Philip Seymour Hoffman Enjoyed Directing


Philip Seymour Hoffman Anthony Minghella Coen Brothers Mike Nichols Paul Thomas Anderson Spike Lee

Philip Seymour Hoffman found his directorial debut "satisfying".

The Oscar-winning actor was at the helm in the big screen adaptation of off-Broadway hit 'Jack Goes Boating' and while he enjoyed it, he did find it quite hard work because he was also starring in it.

He said: "I enjoyed it immensely, actually. It was very satisfying. But acting, also, was tough. I don't think I'd do that again. It was a necessity at the time but I like being directed and you don't really direct yourself."

British star Kate Winslet has won the best actress Oscar for Holocaust drama The Reader.

Nominated for an Academy award for the sixth time, the 33-year-old finally claimed a statuette at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles for her portrayal of concentration camp guard Hanna Schmitz.

"I'd be lying if I haven't made a version of this speech before I was eight years old in the bathroom mirror with a shampoo bottle. And it's not a shampoo bottle now!" the Titanic star said as she followed her BAFTA and Golden Globe awards with an Oscar.

"Stephen, working with you is an experience I will never forget," Winslet said of Daldry, Oscar-nominated director of The Reader.

Winslet dedicated the award to the late Anthony Minghella and Sydney Pollack as well as her fellow nominees, Meryl Streep, Angelina Jolie, Anne Hathaway and Melissa Leo.

Sean Penn was named best actor for his portrayal of a groundbreaking gay politician in Milk.

Wright Penn Missed Out On The English Patient


Robin Wright Anthony Minghella The English Patient Kristin Scott Thomas

Actress Robin Wright PENN had to turn down the chance to work with British writer/director Anthony Minghella on The English Patient because she was a new mum.
The American movie star was Minghella's first choice to play KATHARINE CLIFTON in the beloved romance, but she had to decline the part.
She reveals, "Anthony and I had a meeting years ago for The English Patient, and I wasn't able to do it because I'd just had a baby and they were going to North Africa for 16 weeks, which I wouldn't do."
Wright Penn admits she thinks Kristin Scott Thomas, who landed the role, was perfect in the 1996 film: "She's so great in that film - nobody could have played that part (as well)... It all worked out in the end."

The Cutting Edge: The Magic Of Movie Editing Review


Very Good
While "magic" may be a little strong, The Cutting Edge: The Magic of Movie Editing is a surprisingly interesting film. If you're a filmmaker or an aspiring critic, it may well be essential viewing.

This documentary is precisely what it's title purports to be, an in-depth and instructive look at movie editing that literally spans 100 years of film history, from The Great Train Robbery to Cold Mountain. Through interviews with a copious number of directors and editors, The Cutting Edge covers everything from basic editing techniques like the matching of cuts to modern editing theory as inspired by MTV and The Matrix. The film goes into extreme detail in parts, like when we get to see James Cameron's trick of removing one frame per second out of Terminator 2 to give it more momentum and realism. It's all a little bit insidery and self-congratulatory, but the movie works far more often than not. Any film buff will find it hard not to like.

Glamorous Kidman Stopped Cold Mountain Oscars?


Nicole Kidman Cold Anthony Minghella Jude Law

Nicole Kidman's glamorous appearance in American Civil War film Cold MOUNTAIN has been blamed for the movie's lack of OSCAR success.

The Anthony Minghella directed film was hotly tipped for multiple ACADEMY AWARDS nominations last month (JAN04) - but only managed to pick up one nod in a major category for Jude Law's leading performance.

Now a source on the film has revealed "intense debate" occurred in the editing suite over Kidman's flawless appearance as ADA MONROE, and suggests this was ultimately responsible for the movie's disappointing Oscar showing.
