Month of Movies: Kidman Chases Oscar Down the Rabbit Hole

Rabbit Hole is one of those movies that I just know is brilliant, and I just know I will absolutely never see. At least, not for a long time. The subject matter alone is enough to send any parent running for the hills in empathetic agony, and -- unlike Rama of , I had no doubt that Aaron Eckhart would be heart-wrenching to watch, but from the buzz in the Oscar-sphere, it's Kidman who gives a revelatory performance as a mother struggling to reclaim her life after the loss of her young son....more

A Month of Movies: Is "The Fighter" an Oscar Contender?

Will The Fighter take home Oscar gold? Well, not for Mark Wahlberg, who was snubbed for Best Actor ... but maybe for Christian Bale, who got a nod for Best Supporting Actor. I agree with Shannon at Frothy Girlz that The Fighter is "the perfect awards season movie."...more

A Month of Movies: Miss Representation -- Not Just For Feminists

Jennifer Siebel Newsom's Miss Representation is proving itself a force to be reckoned with. It was high on my list of movies I desperately wanted to see but missed out on at Sundance -- the list of interviewees reads like a who's who of women in Media, and listening to Siebel Newsom speak about her plans for the film, and the movement it seeks to launch is to be inspired (or numb to your core.)...more
