Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer - Trailer and Clip


Norman Oppenheimer is a New York based hustler determined to climb the social ladder and make connections with all the important people. It's never really clear why he's so desperate to do often dubious favours for people of the elite that he barely knows, but he certainly uses his meetings as ammunition during social occasions, name-dropping where he can and wheedling his way into conversations that might benefit him in the future. He does everything he can to ensure that people meet and remember him, even if that means chasing people down on their morning jog or breaking into their homes. Nobody really knows the truth about his job, his background or even his family, but one thing that's for sure is that his life is about to be turned upside down after a down-and-out young politician he met three years ago becomes the Prime Minister of Israel.

Richard Gere Padma Lakshmi

Actor Richard Gere and cookbook author Padma Lakshmi are allegedly an item. Gere has recently ended a relationship with his wife of 11 years, Carey Lowell, while Lakshmi was married to novelist Salman Rushdie between 2004-2007. She also has a daughter, Krishna Thea Lakshmi-Dell with venture capitalist Adam Dell, while Gere and Lowell have a fourteen year old son, Homer James Jigme.

Richard Gere has apparently found himself a new lady love according to new reports suggesting that the actor is dating Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi. E!

A source told the New York Post's Page Six that the pair "have been quietly spending some time together. It is all very new and recent, and happened while he has been filming in New York." However, the Primal Fear star is still in the process of divorcing his wife of 11 years, Carey Lowell, from whom he split in September 2013 due to reported "lifestyle differences."

Ever Wondered Why Cindy Crawford And Richard Gere Got Divorced?


Cindy Crawford Richard Gere

Cindy Crawford has, for the first time, opened up about her divorce from Richard Gere eighteen years ago, citing the age difference as the primary reason for the split. The pair were married for just four years before calling it quits in 1995. "I think a lot of what happened with Richard and I was, I was still 22 and at 22 - as a young woman - I was kind of still figuring out who I was and what I wanted to be and he was already 37," Crawford explained to Oprah Winfrey for an upcoming episode of "Oprah's Master Class."

Crawford talked about the difficulties of dating Gere - then one of the biggest actors in the world - while she was still trying to forge her own career. "I just think your twenties for women is such a time when you're starting to come into your own and feel your own power and connect to your inner strength and it's hard to do that - it's hard to change - in a relationship, because what one person might have signed up for, all of a sudden, you're not that anymore," she said.

However, Crawford credits the Officer And A Gentleman actor for teaching her how to deal with her burgeoning fame. "When I would see how he was with fans when they approached him.. I got to look to him to see how he created boundaries for himself," she said. The model is now married to Rande Gerber, while Gere has been married to Carey Lowell since 2002.

The Golden Globes Nominations, No Surprises For A Great Year Of Film


Quentin Tarantino Leonardo Dicaprio Daniel Day Lewis Rachel Weisz Naomi Watts Helen Mirren Richard Gere John Hawkes Joaquin Phoenix Denzel Washington Maggie Smith Michelle Dockery Ben Affleck Marion Cotillard Christoph Waltz Ang Lee

The Golden Globes are one of the biggest film and television awards in the world. Winning an award from them will almost always top the C.V.s of anyone involved in film. 2012 has been one of the best years in film for a long time, with many films being deemed 'instant classics'. Although, of course, that's said every year, with just a quick glance at the calibre of performances, narrative and cinematography this year it's easy to see why it's being said.

2012's nominations were revealed today with few surprises. The favourites during speculation included Argo, Lincoln, Zero Dark Thirty and The Master, and they haven't failed to impress in the Globes' nominations. Lincoln's set to be a big winner with seven nominations, while Argo has 5 nominations, Zero Dark Thirty has 4 and The Master has 3. All four, except The Master, are also in the running for Best Motion Picture, competing alongside Ang Lee's Life of Pi and Quentin Tarantino's re-envisioning of a slave narrative, Django Unchained

Tarantino's film received 5 nominations, which included two in the category for Best Supporting Performance by an Actor, for Christoph Waltz and Leonardo Dicaprio, which proves to us that it's more than worth the watch. Best Director nominations mirrors the Best Motion Picture, and include Ben Affleck (Argo), Stephen Spielberg (Lincoln), Ang Lee (Life of Pi), Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty) and Quentin Tarantino (Django Unchained), which is no surprise really.

Kristen Stewart was on the prowl at the Academy's Governor Awards but she'll have to go some to get Twilight an Oscar

Hosted by the Academy, the Governors Awards gave plenty of Hollywood stars the chance to schmooze up to the organisers of the prestigious Oscar awards, in the hope that a strong social showing might lead to an eventual nomination when the big awards themselves come around in the new year. Does it ever work? Who can tell, but there were certainly a lot of the great and good out at the event on Saturday evening (December 1).

Channing Tatum Is Sexiest Man Alive 2012, Ryan Gosling Fans Go Crazy


Channing Tatum Ryan Gosling Mel Gibson Nick Nolte George Clooney Brad Pitt Tom Cruise Richard Gere Johnny Depp Javier Bardem

Channing Tatum has been named People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive for 2012, beating the likes of Ben Affleck, Denzel Washington and last year's winner Bradley Cooper in the process. The result confirms the fact that People magazine really, really, hate Ryan Gosling

Tatum joins a select club of Hollywood stars who have taken the title since the magazine began the feature in 1985. Mel Gibson, Nick Nolte, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Richard Gere and Johnny Depp have been named the sexiest man alive, though the title still evades Ryan Gosling. Some of the Blue Valentine star's fans have already begun bashing their heads against keyboards across the globe. One user said, "channing tatum definitely isn't the sexiest man alive tho like what about joseph gordon levitt OR ryan gosling HELLO PEOPLE," while another said, "Eh, Channing Tatum sexiest man alive? I still think we have to give it up for Ryan Gosling, guy always gets the short end of the stick." Poor old Ryan. Anyway, Tatum, 32, hails from Alabama and is best known for a couple of soppy romantic-comedies, though turned in an excellent comedic performance in 21 Jump Street. Speaking in the latest issue of People magazine, the actor says he's ready to begin a family with wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum, "I'm ready; I think she's ready.The first number that pops into my head is three, but I just want one to be healthy and then we'll see where we go after that.It's really easy for us guys to say, 'I want like 15 kids. Jenna will be like, 'Well you better get another wife!"

The special issue of the magazine also hands out awards in other category, including Men of the Year, Sexy At Every Age and Hot Dogs (a list of Hollywood's dog lovers). Ryan Gosling got a nod in the latter, while Javier Bardem made it only to the scary sounding 50 Shades of Grey.

Brooklyn's Finest Review


Good
This darkly shaded cop drama has an effectively moody tone, although it never feels any more gritty or realistic than a TV series. And despite solid acting, the plot feels both contrived and rather lethargic.

Three Brooklyn cops are confronting moral dilemmas on the job. Eddie (Gere) is a week away from retirement when he's asked to help a couple of rookies learn the ropes. But he'd rather just keep his head down. Tango (Cheadle) is deep undercover in a drug sting, threatened by a tough FBI agent (Barkin) to set up his childhood friend (Snipes). And Sal (Hawke) is looking to steal some drug-bust cash to top up his salary so he can look after his pregnant wife (Taylor) and children.

Amelia Review


Weak
This terrific true story has been so overproduced that there's virtually no life left in it. Even though every frame looks exquisite, not one scene rings true because the filmmakers leave all humour and passion off the screen.

In 1928, Amelia Earhart (Swank) bursts onto the dawning aviation scene as a confident pilot giving men a run for their money. Quickly snapped up by promoter George Putman (Gere), her aerial achievements instantly grab media attention. Reluctantly agreeing to marry George if she can keep her independence, she works rather too closely with the government's first aviation chief Gene Vidal (McGregor). And then in 1937 she sets off to fly around the world with navigator Fred Noonan (Eccleston).

Nights In Rodanthe Review


Very Good
With the Gulf Coast narrowly dodging Gustav and the Houston area recuperating from Ike, now might not be the best time for a breathy romance that uses the violent lashing of a vicious hurricane to simulate foreplay between passionate lovers.

It's hard to fault director George C. Wolfe, however. His Nights in Rodanthe adaptation merely adheres to a blueprint provided by best-selling author Nicholas Sparks, who makes use of a tempest in his source novel but also provides earnest human connections and palpable heartache.

Continue reading: Nights In Rodanthe Review

The Hunting Party Review


OK
Despite the Western genre's resurgence -- and Hollywood's willingness to remake already acceptable examples of the classic format -- Richard Shepard's The Hunting Party has nothing to do with Don Medford's smoldering love-triangle-on-the-pioneer-trail from 1971 that carries the same name. Instead of a brilliant stand-off between Gene Hackman and Oliver Reed, we get the versatile Terrence Howard and a dependable (but unremarkable) Richard Gere sprinting through a ripped-from-the-headlines satire of our nation's ongoing military turmoil overseas.

Simon Hunt (Gere) has had enough. After years spent covering the atrocities of war with fearless cameraman Duck (Howard) in tow, Hunt lets his wearied emotions get the better of him during a live segment. His meltdown doesn't approach Howard Beale's "mad as hell" level, but it's enough to pull the plug on Hunt's career for the time being.

An Officer And A Gentleman Review


Extraordinary
Most articles about the state of American movies in the 1980s feature writers bitching and moaning about how the era was built on sequels and action-packed, plot-deprived blockbusters. They may have a point. Independent films really didn't become relevant (again) until sex, lies, and videotape, which was released in 1989. Miramax was still growing.

Something good did come out of the decade: a slew of great date movies. Not surprisingly, there was a formula to it. The typical woman would get a love story usually featuring a hunky, emotionally lost male lead. The typical man would get a macho storyline featuring slapstick, sports, violence, or male bonding. Sometimes he got to see bare breasts. It all led to movies that didn't require three days of negotiation: Hoosiers, Witness, Field of Dreams, Tootsie, Say Anything (for the music geek subset), and the John Hughes stuff for the teens.

Bee Season Review


Excellent
One of the rarest beasts in the celluloid kingdom is the two-director film. I don't mean films with co-directors; I'm talking about two names under that "directed by" credit. It happened earlier this year with Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's relentless Sin City, which couldn't be farther from the style or subject matter than Scott McGehee and David Siegel's Bee Season.

We see a helicopter bring a large metal statue of the letter A over a west coast bridge. Watching intently, young Eliza Naumann (Flora Cross), her brother and her parents drive to colleges and jobs. They each have their own lives and secrets that we can't even fathom yet. Eliza's secret is that she's an expert speller, able to close her eyes and harness a power to see the letters come alive around her. After winning her school's spelling bee, she attempts to tell her father, Saul (Richard Gere), but he doesn't notice, not until she wins the next round and gets her name in the paper, which turns Saul's attention away from his son, Aaron (Max Minghella), and towards his daughter's strange talent.

Chicago Review


Excellent
The Broadway revival of Chicago managed to be cheeky and creaky, a throwback to pseudo-racy vaudeville that's "clean-sexy" in a non-threatening, Marilyn Monroe sort of way. Chicago the movie, from first-time feature director Rob Marshall, amplifies the passion and ratchets up the sass, all with a wink and a grin held over from the original tongue-in-cheek theatrical production.

From its first song-and-dance to its final curtain call, Marshall's Chicago packs its frames with all that jazz; translated, that means corruption, adultery, exploitation, and death. This ain't the 1990s, folks. It's the Roaring '20s, and murder - as seedy attorney Billy Flynn (Richard Gere) so aptly puts it - is "a form of entertainment."

Continue reading: Chicago Review

Runaway Bride Review


Very Good
Julia Roberts has made a career out of being one of Hollywood's most irresistible glamour dolls. Dress her up in any role and she'll flash that wide smile, deliver her awkward laugh, and expose a peculiar giddiness, which gives her a sense of vulnerability that fans have come to adore. Ever since the Cinderella story Pretty Woman ten years ago that catapulted her career to mega-stardom, her roles have all been typecast around her good looks and charismatic personality (Steel Magnolias and My Best Friend's Wedding). Runaway Bride is no exception to the rule. However, as the old saying goes; if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Runaway Bride brings writer Garry Marshall back together with Roberts, Richard Gere, and memorable Pretty Woman costar Hector Elizondo for another unlikely love story.

Continue reading: Runaway Bride Review

Autumn In New York Review


OK
No matter how shrewd, wealthy, or debonair a man can be, in a Hollywood drama, he is always humbled by love. Richard Gere is no exception to this rule, and for the second time in a year, he is typecast in yet another implausible romantic lead. Why even bother establishing his character? Like always, he's successful, powerful, and sexy, yet unable to curb his womanizing ways. Only this time it's not Julia Roberts as the flamboyant prostitute or eccentric altar ditcher, but a weepy Winona Ryder, who is half his age and happens to be dying of a rare heart disease. Sound like a winner? It isn't.

Autumn in New York, directed by Joan Chen (Xiu Xiu: The Sent Down Girl), is the recycled love story of a man who has it all but nobody to share it with. The tacky promo, "He taught her how to live, she taught him how to love," basically explains the plot in a nutshell. Flourishing Manhattan restaurant owner Will Keane (Gere) sees something in the beauty, wit, and innocence of young Charlotte (Winona Ryder), despite the fact that he dated her deceased mother in the past. On the flip side, Charlotte has merely a year to live and is not afraid to die because she has nothing truly worth living for. The two find sustenance in one another, but as all love stories go, they endure trying times. Winona is either too young or too sick, and he can't control his libido or escape his shady past. So they're meant for one another, but how long can it last?

Continue reading: Autumn In New York Review

Sommersby Review


Good
Relatively weak popcorn drama, about a man who comes back from the Civil War to reclaim his place at his plantation, only he's not the hero everyone thinks he is. Remake of a French film.

Pretty Woman Review


Excellent
Every cliché has at least one perfect example: An "Exhibit A" that makes the hidden good side of the cliché come to light and makes the jaded tired old story new again. For the tale of the hooker with the heart of gold, the perfect example is Petty Woman.

You have a dapper, somewhat older wealthy man (Richard Gere), a surprisingly attractive prostitute (Julia Roberts), a toadie type (Jason Alexander) bent on breaking up the high roller and the ho, and the kindly gent (Hector Elizondo) who teaches the trailer trash how to hang with the upper crust.

The Mothman Prophecies Review


Very Good
Although its title sounds new age goofy, The Mothman Prophecies most certainly is not. It's an intelligent, tense thriller of the unexplained, a film for anyone who thinks the X Files movie comes up short. In fact, most of the action plays out like an extended X Files episode, one that would leave fans of the genre a little spooked, slightly sad, and wanting more.

Based on real events, most of which occurred in 1966 and 1967 (the film is set in present day), The Mothman Prophecies is a complex meeting of unseen monsters, voices from beyond, and eerie coincidence (...or is it?) Richard Gere stars as John Klein, an established Washington Post reporter whose good fortune is shattered when his beautiful wife Mary (Debra Messing) sustains severe injuries in what appears to be a single car accident. As Mary slips in and out of consciousness, she asks if John has seen "it." "It," according to her wild sketches, appears to be some sort of beastly giant bat. Either Mary has suffered brain damage, or something wholly supernatural has entered John's life.

Primal Fear Review


Bad
It's been a long time since a really bad movie has come down the pike, but it had to happen eventually. This time up, it's Primal Fear, yet another badly-titled Richard Gere-as-a-lawyer flick that will keep you groaning in your seat when you aren't busy laughing at the unintentional humor.

If you had the misfortune of seeing Gere in 1992's Final Analysis, you'll be familiar with the setup. Gere plays Martin Vail, a self-described bigshot defense attorney in Chicago. Laura Linney is Janet Venable, a crass and unlikable public prosecutor, who spends most of the film developing her primary character trait: being a bitch. Aaron Stampler (Edward Norton) is who the lawyers fighting over (when they aren't rehashing their 6 month-long affair), because it turns out that Aaron butchered the local Archbishop. Maybe.

Dr. T And The Women Review


OK
What has Mr. T been doing for all these years since The A-Team? Well, he's been hard at work in medical school, obviously, and now he's Dallas's most sought-after OB/GYN!

We were admonished by a studio rep at the beginning of Dr. T and the Women not to spoil the plot twists in our review. Well, I'm going to spoil one right now by telling you this: Mr. T does not appear in this movie!

Continue reading: Dr. T And The Women Review

Looking For Mr. Goodbar Review


Excellent
It takes a strong stomach to see Annie Hall playing a wanton slut of a woman, left behind by the sexual revolution. Nonetheless, Diane Keaton pulled a 180 in this gritty drama, about a schoolteacher for the deaf who experiments with drugs and (more importantly) wild sex, during the era of free love. Overflowing with symbolism and hopelessly depressing, this one is a true eye-opener. If you think you know Ms. Keaton -- you don't, until you've seen this one.

The Jackal Review


OK
If you can get past Diane Venora's laughable turn as a Russian agent (isn't that why we have Lena Olin?), you might find enough guilty pleasure in the cacophonous remake The Jackal to have a good time. Bruce Willis chews even more scenery as the villain than Richard Gere does as his Irish nemesis. Together they end up with quite an impressive body count -- watch especially for an early performance from the always entertaining Jack Black.

Chicago Review


Excellent

Within the first five seconds of the musical number that opens the film adaptation of "Chicago," director Rob Marshall has established such a sublimely vivacious speakeasy atmosphere of hot jazz, cigarette smoke and showgirls that you'll feel as if you've been transported backstage at a posh 1920s cabaret.

The scene crackles with seductive energy as vaudeville siren Velma Kelly (Catherine Zeta-Jones) prowls across the footlights with a phalanx of sexy dancers, cooing "All That Jazz" in a voice that turns the men at the darkened tables around the stage into putty.

And just for a second, wannabe song-and-dance girl Roxie Hart (Renée Zellweger) imagines herself up there in Velma's place. As the beautiful flapper floozy stands in the shadows at the back of the theater, wide-eyed but reeking of wily ambition, Marshall (who directed the recent stage revival of "Cabaret") shows us a flash of Roxie's imagination in which she's the fabulous star of the fabulous show, wearing a fabulously silver sequined waterfall dress, strutting and singing to wild applause.

Continue reading: Chicago Review

Shall We Dance Review


Weak

A warmhearted semi-romance of self-discovery, "Shall We Dance" opens so promisingly that it's a big disappointment when the picture suffers crucial missteps that throw off its entire rhythm.

Richard Gere stars as a melancholy Chicago probate lawyer whose prosaic life (established in an uncommonly affecting voice-over and a perfectly pitched montage of daily routine) gets a secret, seductive pick-me-up when he discovers a passion for ballroom dancing. Riding home on the elevated train day after day, he becomes drawn to a possible kindred spirit, a beautiful stranger (Jennifer Lopez) who seems to be forever staring sadly out a dance-studio window. One day his intuition gets the better of him. He signs up for a dance class to be near her.

As Gere's ennui is only tenuously related to his marriage (to Susan Sarandon), the film does not go the obvious direction with this attraction. But director Peter Chelsom ("Serendipity") and screenwriter Audrey Wells ("Under the Tuscan Sun") find other ways to turn this remake of a mediocre 1997 Japanese film about cultural repression into a wholly Hollywood affair.

Continue reading: Shall We Dance Review

Autumn In New York Review


Weak

In "Autumn In New York," terminally tumor-bound Winona Ryder and her seriously senior lover Richard Gere have a whole conversation about what it means to be "unique" as opposed to "typical."

Oh, the irony.

An utterly typical movie lacking even a hint of uniqueness, "Autumn" is a Hallmark card redeaux of the "Love Story"-style tragic romance with a September-May twist.

Continue reading: Autumn In New York Review

The Mothman Prophecies Review


OK

By making a big deal out of the fact that his supernatural chiller "The Mothman Prophecies" is based -- however loosely -- on true events, director Mark Pellington seem to be hoping the picture's vagueness and creative liberties might come under less scrutiny.

Furnishing the story about an epidemic of haunting phenomena in a West Virginia hamlet with an acutely icy and unsettling atmosphere, Pellington certainly makes it easy to go along for the ride. But whenever there's a break in the action, the film's fictionalized elements can't help but come into focus, requiring the viewer to beat back the same sense of curiosity required to get sucked into this creepy legend in the first place.

The "true events" on which the movie is based took place in Point Pleasant, W.Va, in the mid 1960s, where dozens of residents reported eerie encounters with a giant, shadowy, winged humanoid with glowing red eyes. Many more said they began hearing unearthly voices that vaguely prophesized impending disasters and other phenomenon.

Dr T & The Women Review


Very Good

After spending the better part of his adult life in a storm of estrogen, OB-GYN Dr. Sullivan Travis (Richard Gere) is still a man in awe of women and still at a loss to understand them.

The fashionable gynecologist to every flaky high society dame in Dallas, his overbooked office waiting room is always a circus of air-kissing aristocrats in leopard print hats and feather boas.

At home he has a wife (Farrah Fawcett) who may be ready for a stay at a well-heeled asylum.
