Melanie Griffiths & Antonio Banderas Divorcing - What We Know So Far


Melanie Griffith Antonio Banderas Don Johnson Dakota Johnson Steven Bauer

Cue the unpleasant tattoo removal! Melanie Griffiths and Antonio Banderas are divorcing and Griffith's heart tattoo of Antonio's name will certainly need to go. Just remember the unfortunate Winona Rider-Johnny Depp 'Wino Forever' debacle. But, besides Griffiths' lack of foresight, why are the couple separating?

Melanie Griffiths and Antonio BanderasMelanie Griffiths and Antonio Banderas are divorcing after 18 years of marriage.

Sources speaking to TMZ, who first broke the news, claim the divorce is amicable. However, Griffiths filed the paperwork and the documents cite irreconcilable differences as the reason for their separation. The 56-year-old actress is also asking for spousal support and joint custody of their daughter Stella. Fortunately, should proceedings take a turn for the worst, custody won't be an issue for long as Stella turns 18 in September. The separation of property may cause some problems as the couple have numerous homes both in the US and in Banderas' native Spain.

Scarface Actor Steven Bauer Arrested For Driving On Suspended License


Steven Bauer

The Scarface actor Steven Bauer has been arrested for driving with a suspended license, The Huffington Post have reported. The 52 year-old actor, whose real name is Steven Ernest Echevarria, was booked into the Miami-Dade County Jail early yesterday morning (December 18, 2012) after being stopped in Sweetwater for making an improper left turn.

When the cops stopped Bauer, they ran a check on his license and found an open 12 year old warrant, so they hauled him in. It’s not currently known if he has an attorney. Bauer, who’s famous for playing the role of Manny Ribera in the 1983 movie Scarface, for which he earned a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Since making his name in Scarface, Bauer has primarily featured in action movies and crime dramas, such as Primal Fear and Traffic. He also landed a role playing a drug lord in the popular TV drama Breaking Bad, though he has never quite managed to regain the success that he found in 1983 with Scarface.

Sadly, Steve Bauer appears to be one of a slew of actors who assume that having your name in the rolling credits of a movie somehow makes you exempt from adhering to US driving laws.

Scarface Review


OK
To say that Al Pacino chews the scenery as Tony Montana, Cuban drug lord par excellence, doesn't really do justice to the performance. Pacino tears into his lines with a lust approaching frenzy, ripping through scenes with an animalistic fervor, creating a role that has already gone down in the books as one of the great, if not the greatest, portrayals of a gangster ever to hit the screen. It's also, watching some 20 years down the line, laughably campy in a manner that the rest of this bloated, self-important film doesn't seem to appreciate.

Pacino and producer Martin Bregman had a good idea in wanting to make an updated version of the original 1932 Scarface, which chronicled the rise and fall of a Prohibition-era Capone-like criminal overlord (screenwriter Ben Hecht was a Chicago journalist with a lot of intimate knowledge of Capone). Handing it over to director Brian De Palma (who had specialized mostly in psychosexual thrillers like Dressed to Kill and The Fury), and screenwriter Oliver Stone (whose credits included an Oscar for 1978's Midnight Express but also Conan the Barbarian), was a daring move. Stone did a lot of research for the screenplay, hanging out and doing coke with drug lords all over Latin America, and De Palma promised to bring a certain visual flair to the proceedings.

Wild Side (1995) Review


Weak
Worse films have been made, but at least this one has a lot of Anne Heche naked. The story is one of ostensible high intrigue in the corporate world, coupled with high-priced hookers and federal investigations into all of this. Doesn't make a lick of sense -- Cammell wants to be David Lynch but he just doesn't have the script here to do it. Memo to star Christopher Walken: What is that on your head?

The Learning Curve Review


Very Good
Surprisingly effective and well-made, this low-budget L.A.-gangster movie tells an interesting story and backs it up with credible performances from its leads.

The Learning Curve starts out sleepily enough, as new lovers Paul (Carmine Giovinazzo) and Georgia (Monet Mazur) look for a way to break out of permanent pennilessness by busting into a life as small-time hoods. Namely, they use Georgia's good looks to lure hapless men into compromising situations, then blackmail money out of them or simply beat them up for their wallets.

Traffic Review


Weak

"Traffic" is a socially and politically grandstanding soap opera about the narcotics trade and the futility of the "war on drugs." It's a film about how that war is propagated by bureaucratic demagogues in the United States government, not because they think they can stem the flow of illegal substances but because they think saying they want to is a way to win elections.

OK. Point taken.

"Traffic" is also gritty and realistic feat of cinematic logistics, following no less than 15 major characters (and more than 50 speaking parts) through several complex, well-acted storylines about all sides of the drug trade -- from kingpins to cops to policy wonks to addicts. So my hat is off to the picture's ever-brilliant director, Steven Soderbergh ("Erin Brockovich"), who certainly does a fine juggling act, involving the audience in every story on a personal level.
