Director James Toback tried sh-t on Robert Downey Jr last week because, I dunno, he stopped using black tar heroin and became a mega movie star…? Click here for a refresher. Toback claims he made RDJ. And, I think?, was trying to say that when RDJ got clean he ended up losing his artistic edge, and now works only for money and not for the creative payoff. Full Story

Not me, not me. Definitely not me. On my birthday last month, while we were out for dinner, for some reason Sasha’s husband brought up an old movie called Black and White, directed by James Toback. I think it’s because we were talking about Gaby Hoffmann and the randomness of the cast – Scott Caan, Claudia Schiffer, Ben Stiller, Elijah Wood, Mike Tyson, Wu-Tang Clan, and Robert Downey Jr. Full Story

If you haven’t grasped it by now, Harvey Weinstein is a very difficult figure in film. There is no denying his impact on the US movie industry, especially as a promoter of specialty and indie films, and his role as one of the central figures in the politicization of the Academy Awards. But he’s also got a reputation among filmmakers—has had for years—as a cut-happy editor who will gleefully slice your movie to ribbons in order to make it more marketable. Full Story
