Acclaimed novelist Cormac McCarthy tries his hand at screenwriting and the talent flocks to him: Ridley Scott directs Michael Fassbender, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz and Brad Pitt in The Counselor. Our Dan Lybarger has the verdict in this week’s MovieStyle.
Also, Philip Martin chats with Mitch Mustain at the recent Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival and weighs in on the documentary Inequality for All; Piers Marchant examines Parkland, a drama set in the hospital where, 50 years ago, a president and an assassin died; and Karen Martin revisits Richard Linklater’s Before Sunrise and other recent DVD releases in her Home Movies column.
And then there’s this Bad Grandpa movie, which, like the old Candid Camera series, seeks to catch real people in the act of being themselves.
