By     get stories by email

Wallace Shawn Talks Don Peyote: The star/co-screenwriter of the film classic My Dinner With Andre revisits his cameo in his latest film, that of a peculiar shrink in this controlled substance-laced end of the world doomsday satire.

Serving up a very different inebriated stew of ecological, pharmaceutical, and existential longings, in pondering an endangered planet and saving the world while radically intoxicated.

Gore Vidal: The United States Of Amnesia. A film portrait of the late, eloquently brutal political commentator and social critic. And a paradoxically anti-imperialist, anti-government politician and statesman, likewise anti-establishment, subversive establishment insider, and anti-elite aristocrat.

And on the line to Arts Express to decipher all that is the Australian director, Nicholas Wrathall. Including whatever happened to the phenomenon of the literary celebrity, of which Vidal counted himself the last of that breed - and why.

Dennis Broe On The World Film Beat: A Wrap-Up Report of the Cannes Film Festival. Prof. Broe scrutinizes how the global economic crisis and the documentary of the soul factor in; the erosion of the notion of aura in the service of money when it comes to films and film festivals; a bicycle thief festival entry in this age of financialization; and Godard mulling the eternal, while blending cell phone imagery with 3D.
