Vanity Fair Editor Likens Gwyneth Paltrow To Kim Jong-Un Over Boycott Dispute


Gwyneth Paltrow Graydon Carter Chris Martin

Graydon Carter, the editor of Vanity Fair, has lifted the lid on a monumental feud between his magazine and the actress Gwyneth Paltrow. According to Carter, issues arose when Paltrow threatened to boycott the magazine to prevent them from releasing an "epic take-down" piece that would have reportedly been image-damaging for the Iron Man star.

Carter likened Paltrow to the evil Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un after she was successful in influencing the magazine to run a less harsh piece in the December 2013 issue by demanding that neither her friends nor family should communicate with the magazine. "Not to bore you with the details," Carter writes via the March 2014 Editor's letter, "but the whole Vanity Fair - Gwyneth Paltrow brouhaha began innocently enough at a routine morning editorial meeting last spring," via Vanity Fair.

Arbitrage Trailer


Robert Miller is billionaire hedge fund businessman who at first glance seems to have the perfect life; successful, plenty of money, a supportive wife and a daughter/ business partner willing to take on the company when he retires. However, something much darker is going on underneath as he is struggling to cover up many years of fraudulent activities while trying to sell away his business to a bank. Not only this, but he has also embarked on an illicit affair with the young and beautiful Julie Cote who he attempts to whisk away with him for a while. As fate would have it, Robert finds himself drifting off to sleep in the car as they drive out of town and subsequently fails to prevent a crash that instantly kills Julie. As he attempts to cover his tracks by setting fire to the vehicle, his whole life is on the line with suspicious police officers, a mistrustful wife and a daughter with an unfortunate eye for detail threatening to collapse the empire he has worked so hard for.

This gripping thriller drama premiered in the US in September 2012 and serves as the full-length feature directorial debut of Nicholas Jarecki ('The Informers' screenwriter) who was also responsible for writing the fantastic screenplay.

Starring: Richard Gere, Susan Sarandon, Tim Roth, Brit Marling, Laetitia Casta, Nate Parker, Stuart Margolin, Chris Eigeman, Graydon Carter, Bruce Altman, Larry Pine, Curtiss Cook, Reg E. Cathey, Felix Solis, Monica Raymund, Gabrielle Lazure, Shawn Elliott, Maria Bartiromo, David Faber, Josh Pais, Alyssa Sutherland, Paula Devicq, Zack Robidas & Betsy Aidem.

Chicago 10 Review


OK
The story of the 1968 Democratic Convention riots and the trial that followed would seem to have it all, with no need for sexing up. There were riots in the streets (broadcast live on TV, even), youthful heroes with a zest for the theatrical, scowling villains with little regard for decency, and the sense that the future of America was hanging in the balance. That wasn't enough, though, for director Brett Morgen (The Kid Stays in the Picture), who said that with Chicago 10 he wanted to make a film that "resonates with kids today" by being done "in a language they understand... without talking heads and a narrator and all those trappings." Thus: Animation and Rage Against the Machine on the soundtrack. The first sign, of course, that somebody will be wholly unable to effectively communicate with kids today is when they refer to them as "kids today."

Morgen's conceit with Chicago 10 -- mixing archival footage of the riot and its aftermath with animated recreations of the trial -- is not the film's problem. In fact, by breaking away from the well-worn documentarian's path of narration and flashback, Morgen does opens interesting doors for other filmmakers to follow. But the filmmakers (Morgen's main backer was Vanity Fair editor and occasional political dilettante Graydon Carter) have such a lack of faith in their own subject's inherent power that it all ends up more a gimmick than a bold new direction in non-fiction filmmaking. Medium Cool 2008 it's not.

The Kid Stays In The Picture Review


Essential
I read Robert Evans' 1994 autobiography, The Kid Stays in the Picture, years ago and thought that it was worthy of the bargain bin at Waldenbooks--which is exactly where I found it. Evans' work was an overlong and self-indulgent tale that didn't hook me the way great Hollywood tales of excess like Hit and Run or Easy Riders, Raging Bulls, which I read later on, did.

After watching Brett Morgen and Nanette Burstein's brilliant documentary, adapted from Evans' book, I may soon have to reread my copy. The duo does two things that Evans never really embraced in his literary effort: They capture the tornado of fame, women, and power that Evans lived in, and, with their subject's help, give it a well-worn dignity and honesty that you rarely see in celebrity biographies.
