Film producer Lynda Obst's career has had more twists and turns than a big-budget action movie -- which is not the sort of movie she makes.
Pfc. LaVena Johnson had been in Iraq for six weeks when her dead body was found inside of her tent in July 2005.

In Mud -- the new film by Jeff Nichols -- two boys find an island -- and come of age. Using a southern bayou as a backdrop, Mud oozes metaphors of manhood, and how the construct of what it means to be a man has changed.
Mud skillfully yet almost casually manages to mix a coming of age tale, a twisty crime thriller, and a tragic love story in the slow-flowing waters of the Mississippi river, producing a masterful film with an edgy, contemporary darkness, yet with the timeless feel of adolescent adventures.
There is something both engaging and unique about Jeff Nichols' plain-spoken tale of youngsters learning hard lessons about the nature of love and the darker side of the adult world.

In our recent interview, I learned why P.J. encompasses the ability to steal every scene that he's in: the man is a free-flowing ball of crazy energy. While most guests simply walk onto the set, P.J. rode in on a skateboard and immediately knocked over a giant light stand.
The shots of Moss looked right out of Playboy, circa 1966. She's lovely, but I wonder if this is the beginning of a trend for Graydon Carter's great, groundbreaking magazine?
It's puzzling why an African American director would choose this unsettling project in the first place; his fans will be perplexed. All that went right in his previous film has gone awry in this sour, bitter-tasting mint julep.
Lee Daniels's The Paperboy is a movie that frankly skirts by purely on the good will of its actors. The story is pretty much a wash, even if its mundane nature wins points for probable realism.
Lee Daniels' touch is all over this movie, which is as sensational as it is nonsensical, with its overheated blend of sex, race and murder.
I went to a screening The Paperboy at the screening room at 500 Park Avenue last night. It's director Lee Daniels' down-and-dirty version of Pete Dexter's 1995 book. Both Dexter and Daniels are credited with the screenplay. I have three words for it. Lord. Have. Mercy.
Marilyn's early passing, the scandals and speculations about her death and her life (especially her love life) have fueled interest in her. She remains a vital part of 2012 pop culture.
Recently, I told you how Matthew McConaughey neatly stole "Magic Mike" away from Channing Tatum. Well, he doesn't steal anything here. "Killer Joe" belongs to him.
In a summer of movies made of bombastic special effects and obvious action, Killer Joe still has the ability to surprise by keeping it down and dirty -- though you'll need a strong stomach to make it to the end.
