Sadly it speaks volumes that Jobs saving a piece of digital art from his daughter after years of estrangement feels strangely empty. It's hard to emote over something saved to a hard drive rather than hand crafted.
Steve Jobs, which I've seen three times now, is a curious and entertaining film. Until recently seen as a top Oscar favorite, it's also proved to be a shocking box office bomb, falling away to virtually nothing just now after only its third weekend in general release.
This is a dark portrait of a profoundly psychologically damaged man whose compensation for feeling unwanted as an infant was to crush everyone around him into admiring his brilliance. But at what price?
I awaited few fall releases with more anticipation than Steve Jobs, the Danny Boyle directed, Aaron Sorkin penned film based on Walter Isaacson's best-selling biography. After all, as they say at Nate'n Al deli in Beverly Hills, "what's not to like" about that team?
Galvin Scott Davis' timeless new film, Daisy Chain, a five minute animated short narrated by Academy Award winning actress Kate Winslet, was born from misery and travail, and is the most stirring recent example of art communicating the subject of anti-bullying.
The famed photographer with good looks of a male model, or even perhaps Prince Charming, is in fact a real prince. More specifically, His Serene Highness Prince Alexi Lubomirski of Poland. So which came first, the photographer or the Prince?
The new biopic "Steve Jobs" is as much about Aaron Sorkin's screenplay as it is about the man behind Apple. Sorkin's "walk and talk" way of delivering cogent dialogue dominates the film from beginning to end and is the best part of the movie and the worst.
Like Aaron Sorkin's work on The Social Network before it, Steve Jobs isn't meant to serve as historical document of a man, but rather a meditation on a movement.
I understand creative license and why films need to condense, simplify, fudge, and invent to create drama, but is there a point where this can be considered excessively dishonest?
People don't talk that way, even brilliant people. And, for the most part, they're not going to shout vitriol back and forth across a conference hall while many are watching them tear each other apart.
The demands of a major motion picture and its limitations may be too conventional and narrow a box for the complex and world-changing Jobs.
Kate Winslet turns 40 on October 5. The Oscar-winning actress has a refreshingly positive attitude about entering her fourth decade. As she told Net-a-Porter's weekly online magazine, The Edit, "I'm baffled that anyone might not think women get more beautiful as they get older."
In 2005 I am called by director Todd Field to do stills on his film "Little Children." My first day ...
It seems to me that we women have a problem. We *sharp intake of breath*...age. It's true. Despite all scientific research, none of us has yet found a way to stop the march of time, regardless of which potions, lotions and treatments may promise us otherwise.
Kate Winslet in a smart ponytail and slinky black skimmer posed for selfies with fans as I approached MoMA this week for the New York premiere screening of her new film, A Little Chaos, directed by Alan Rickman.
Insurgent is filled with great scenes that will keep you on the edge of your seat and your eyes glued to the big screen.
