We talk to filmmaker David Cronenberg about his work on Maps to the Stars.
In honour of the huge David Cronenberg exhibit and retrospective currently happening at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto (running until January 19th), Dork Shelf talks to a plethora of film writers, personalities, programmers, podcasters, and filmmakers about what their favourite Cronenberg films are.
As we dig out from piles of new releases from before and after the holiday season, we take looks at the home video releases for Looper, Frankenweenie, Cosmopolis, Dredd, Pitch Perfect, Compliance, The Words, Hit and Run, and season one of Anger Management
Enter for a chance to win one of five copies of David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis on DVD or one grand prize of a Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack of the film, a copy of Don DeLilo's novel, the film's soundtrack, and a mini-poster signed by David Cronenberg and actors Robert Pattinson, Paul Giamatti, Sarah Gadon, Emily Hampshire, and Kevin Durand!
With TIFF announcing the line-up for it's 12th annual Canada's Top Ten series in January, we take a look at their choices to represent the best of the Great White North in 2012.
We talk to one of our favourite people to interview, Mr. Kevin Durand about his role in David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis, his preparation for such an intense acting challenge, and why Robert Pattinson's height helped his sense of job security.
Dork Shelf catches up with famed director David Cronenberg, and actors Robert Pattinson and Paul Giamatti to talk about their work on the hotly anticipated Don DeLillo adaptation Cosmopolis
While a challenging film for average viewers to get involved with David Cronenberg's big screen adaptation of Don DeLillo's Cosmopolis holds a lot to like for attentive viewers with great acting and dialogue, but very little of Cronenberg's own personality in favour of focusing on DeLillo's.
We talked to Canadian character actor Kevin Durand about his latest role as a bank robber in the historical drama Edwin Boyd: Citizen Gangster, what it's like to play a lot of character driven roles, and about being able to adapt to filming in Sault Ste. Marie. Oh, and we asked him a tad about Cosmopolis.
