Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield may be back together - properly! The news that the two were "on a break" (cue Friends impressions) left fans of the couple devastated when it was confirmed by multiple sources back in April. Their 'break' reportedly stemmed from the physical distance between them because of their different filming schedules. However, it seems their split was short lived as Garfield and Stone were spotted together in California this week.

Life Itself Review


Very Good

Fans of film journalism will love this documentary about the noted Chicago critic Roger Ebert, although the movie is just as much about his battle with the cancer that took his life in 2013. It's a lively, fast-paced doc, but even at two hours it feels oddly truncated as the two topics seem to fight for screen time. Fortunately both are potent: the story of Roger's love of cinema and the footage of his astoundingly cheerful refusal to let illness get him down.

Based around Roger's eponymous autobiography, the film quickly traces his background as a film lover who rose through the ranks at the Chicago Sun-Times to become an unusually resonant film reviewer, able to express opinions and even high-minded cinematic observations in ways that were never cynical or snobbish. He found national (and even global) fame through his TV programmes opposite rival Chicago critic Gene Siskel, which began in 1978 and standardised their "thumbs up"/"thumbs down" verdicts. At age 50, Roger met his wife Chaz at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, and her children and grandchildren became his. In 2002, he was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and underwent a series of surgeries that by 2006 made it impossible for him to speak. But he carried on writing reviews and making public appearances (speaking through his computer) until his death.

Filmmaker Steve James had startling access to Roger during the final year of his life, following him to hospitals and rehabilitation centres. Looking at his cancer-ravaged face is difficult at first, but Roger's smiling eyes and constant joking reinforces his optimistic, matter-of-fact approach to life. And he keeps reminding James that this documentary has to show everything, never flinching away from the truth. As a result, the film is a remarkably intimate look at how Roger and Chaz faced the illness and made difficult decisions along the way. This adds an emotional layer to the documentary that's remarkably moving, putting Roger's work into the context of his life and death.

How X Marked The Spot For Martin Scorsese In ‘The Departed’


Martin Scorsese

In 2006 Martin Scorsese finally became an Academy Award winning director when he took home the gold for The Departed, which also won the best picture award. But we’re not here to talk about how great a film The Departed was or what a stellar cast it had or that Scorsese’s Oscar had been long overdue. Instead we’re uncovering a little hidden treat that the director placed in the movie for eagle eyed viewers, an easter egg if you will. You see in The Departed, the fate of all the main characters was clearly spelled out, using one little letter.

The DepartedJack Nicholson [L] and Leonardo DiCaprio [R] in The Departed

In 1932 director Howard Hawks released gangster classic Scarface, a masterpiece of its time which would be remade in 1983 by Brian De Palma and starring Al Pacino. In the movie Hawks uses an ‘x’ motif throughout, usually implying that a character will die. The most prominent example being the x shaped scar on the cheek of Tony Camonte. Inspired by Hawks and wanting to pay homage to the 1932 movie, Scorsese borrowed the x idea for The Departed, as his subtle way of showing which characters might not make it to the end of the movie.

'The Wolf Of Wall Street' Sued By Former Stock Broker Andrew Greene For Wrongful Depiction


Martin Scorsese

Since the Martin Scorsese-directed movie has been released it has garnered success and criticism for its real, yet outlandish, portrayal of corrupt Wall Street brokers in the 90s.

As 'The Wolf of Wall Street' is based on Jordan Belfort's own memoirs, which includes real-life colleagues, clients and friends, it isn't a surprise that some aren't happy with their on-screen depiction.

A lawyer has launched a lawsuit against Martin Scorsese's movie The Wolf of Wall Street, alleging that he has been defamed by the character Nicky "Rugrat" Roskoff. Andrew Greene's suit that it was "readily apparent" the character, known in the movie as "Rugrat," was based on him.
