Kristin Booth joins Jeremy to watch SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK and have a truly honest conversation about mental health in their own lives.
Why did Millennium Entertainment just release trailer for a film David O. Russell shot in 2008?
Our Film and Performing Arts Editor gives his picks for what he thinks will win big at tomorrow night's Oscar ceremony. Please note: he is still not an expert.
A solid, throwback long con period piece with an all star A-list cast, David O. Russell’s American Hustle assuredly isn’t one of the best films of the year like many year end critical organizations and best-of lists are positioning it to be, but that doesn’t mean it’s a bad movie. It’s easy to recommend, well acted, and fun to watch, and I really don’t have many problems with it outside of maybe not fully being able to understand or buy into the hype surrounding it.

While he continues to court the mainstream following the success of The Fighter, director David O. Russell and Bradley Cooper in the best performance of his career help make Silver Linings Playbook one of the best Hollywood portrayals of mental illness to date, even if the film's final third is a really standard sort of romantic comedy.
Dork Shelf sits down with director David O. Russell, former sexiest man alive Bradley Cooper, and rising superstar Jennifer Lawrence about their work on Silver Linings Playbook and creating a film about mental illness that keeps it as real as humanly possible.
Enter for a chance to win one of ten pairs of passes to an advance screening of The Silver Linings Playbook in Ottawa on Monday, November 12th or in Halifax and Winnipeg on Monday, November 19th from Dork Shelf and Alliance Films.

The trailer for this movie is too simple. It makes the film look like every other sports movie: a guy can’t make a living at this sport; his family life is troubled; in the end he wins the big match. However, the movie doesn’t succeed on its plot but on its characters. The Fighter is like Rocky meets The Trailer Park Boys; this family is all kinds of messed up.
