The Venice Film Festival is in full swing, and the stars are out in their Mediterranean finest. Friday David Cronenberg's psychological thriller "A Dangerous Method," starring Keira Knightley, premiered to rave reviews. Madonna premiered "W.E." Thursday night, pulling jury members away from the press conference for Roman Polanski's "Carnage," an early favorite starring Kate Winslet, Christoph Waltz and John C. Reilly. Single George Clooney continues to ham it up for the cameras as he promotes his political thriller, "The Ides of March."
