Though it’s not mentioned in the article about male directors tackling rape narratives that I linked to in the Una review, the last film I saw at TIFF is another instance of a man directing a female protagonist in a rape narrative, and that is Dutch filmmaker Martin Koolhoven’s Brimstone. Full Story

Ewan McGregor makes his directorial debut adapting Philip Roth’s novel American Pastoral, and while he doesn’t embarrass himself, he also doesn’t do himself any favors. Working from an adaptation by John Romano (The Lincoln Lawyer), Pastoral manages to feel too long and like not enough at the same time, and it’s a reminder that not every story, no matter how good, is inherently cinematic. Full Story

Both in Rodarte. I like the symmetry of this. It’s like each Mulleavy gets a Fanning. And they’re coordinated too! This is a great sheer panelled dress on Dakota, 19. Because it’s revealing without being risqué. You see how it offers virtually no side-breast? I have to think that that’s a strategic decision. Full Story

I suppose, if there’s anyone who could get away with the Valentino flower tulle explosion worn by Dakota Fanning at the Met Gala it was probably Dakota Fanning. She’s 17. Prom is still within the parametres of her actual experience. But f-ck is this thing ever ugly. And you have to wonder – did they really design this for 18 and under? I don’t think so. Full Story

Earlier this week, a 10 second teaser trailer was released online in advance of the 90 second proper trailer for Twilight Eclipse. Yes, I’m confused too. But it speaks to the Twilight Nation’s eagerness to eat up anything, to buy up anything, to shoot up anything related to their franchise. Full Story

Dakota Fanning arrived back in Vancouver today to work on Eclipse. Looked happy and excited, signed autographs for fans. As already mentioned, Vancouver is now a hotspot for LA based paps, numbering over 20 as of today with 7 new arrivals. Is that legal? Kristen Stewart hit up the hair salon yesterday and was followed by 10 cars, and they waited for her outside to come out. Full Story

Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning continuing to shoot The Runaways in LA yesterday. Amazing what unsuitable style can do to a person. Kristen was made for the 70s look. But it ages Dakota 20 years. As you can see, there’s a bright green water gun tucked into Kristen’s leather pants. Consider this before you go on the sweat attack please. Full Story

Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning yesterday on the set of The Runaways working that old school style. High waist leather pants. Please. If I put those on I’d be the Chinese Porny Simpson. Kristen however looks amazing. There’s a cute, cute, CUTE body under there. As for those platforms, my mother had a pair. Full Story

Yesterday in Vancouver, Vampires everywhere: Dakota Fanning signing autographs for fans. Jamie Campbell Bower and Cameron Bright hanging out downtown, and Ashley Greene grabbing street meat! Her stock just went up. Sigh. I miss street meat. My stomach was stronger back in the day. I could go for street meat any time. Full Story
