With the impending summer blockbuster season on the horizon, it's always great to have the opportunity to catch smaller, more independent films on the big screen. More often than not, independent films better understand the importance of strong, character-driven stories than studio-interfered mainstream films. The Place Beyond the Pines is another shining example of truly passionate film-making, possessing an epic and compelling storyline of crime, corruption and freakish coincidences. The characters are complex, appealing and admirably portrayed by the cast, particularly by Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper (something I never thought I would say about either actor). The direction by Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine) is also highly notable, whether it's the opening tracking shot reminiscent of the works of Orson Welles and Martin Scorsese, or a tense motorcycle chase that puts the alleged "action" of most modern blockbusters to shame. I can say without hesitation that The Place Beyond the Pines will easily ...

That Man, Before the Curtain, and Before Dorothy, Too ‘Oz the Great and Powerful,’ Starring James Franco Reviews: Can the major studios still make magic? From the looks of “Oz the Great and Powerful,” a dispiriting, infuriating jumble of big money, small ideas and ugly visuals, the answer seems to be no — unless, perhaps, the man behind the curtain is Martin Scorsese or James Cameron. The Walt Disney Company is the studio lurking behind “Oz,” and, as usual, it is banking that it can leverage this 3-D prehistory of the Wizard of Oz (James Franco) for its wonderful world of cross-promotional marketing and ancillary revenue streams. With so much riding on this “Oz” it’s a surprise that the results are so uninspired — or given Disney’s recent run with the likes of “Alice in Wonderland,” maybe not. The bigger bummer, though, is that the studio that has enchanted generations with Tinker Bell and at least a few plucky princesses has backed a movie that has such backward ideas about fe ...
Here's a, what if moment? I had the opportunity to audition for the part in Michael Jackson "Bad" video that Wesley Snipes eventually got in the 1980's. I had the opportunity to audition for Martin Scorsese. Needless to say I didn't get the part. But I will never for get what he told me after I auditioned. He told me "You'd be a good actor, once you've live life a little more". At least they used me as an extra on the tran scene at the beginning and I was able to take a pic and get an autograph from Michael Jackson during a quiet moment and between scenes. I wonder if I should have gone for that or even try now. hm.
Francis Ford Coppola (born April 7, 1939) American film director, producer and screenwriter. He is widely acclaimed as one of Hollywood's most innovative and influential film directors and he epitomized the group of filmmakers known as the New Hollywood, that includes Martin Scorsese, Terrence Malick, Robert Altman, Woody Allen, William Friedkin, Philip Kaufman and George Lucas, who emerged in the early 1970s with unconventional ideas that challenged contemporary film-making. The script he co-wrote for Patton (1970) with Edmund H. North won the Academy Award for Best Writing (Original Screenplay). His directorial prominence was cemented with the release of The Godfather (1972). The film revolutionized movie-making in the gangster genre, earning praise from both critics and the public before winning three Academy Awards, including his second for Best Writing (Adapted Screenplay) (with Mario Puzo), Best Picture and a nomination for Best Director. Coppola followed it with The Godfather Part II (1974), whi ...

I will never for the life of me understand how one of the worst actors in Hollywood has somehow wormed his way into working with an extensive list of the most legendary film makers of all time, ranging from Steven Spielberg to Martin Scorsese to Brad Bird to Stanley Kubrick. For those of you who haven't guessed yet, I'm talking about Tom Cruise. He plays in such great movies, if only he wasn't in them.
In 'A Letter to Elia', his 2010 tribute to Elia Kazan (codirected with Kent Jones), Martin Scorsese recounts seeing On the Waterfront for the first time and being dazzled by "the faces, the bodies, the way they moved . . . the voices, the way they sounded. They were like the people I saw every day. It was as if the world that I came from, that I knew, mattered."

Ok so I haven't seen Argo but, *** really.? Is there that much crap out there that Argo wins Best Picture. Now after only 3 films Ben "D.B." Affleck wins. I'm sorry but, any real film fan should be upset on the way film is heading. Here is what I'm talking about...1. Martin Scorsese although I'm not his biggest fan did not win a Best Picture oscar till Departed. 2. Christopher Nolan has never won an oscar. 3. Stanley Kubrick the "greatest director ever" only won one oscar for special effects in 2001. He actually was nominated for a worst director razzie for the Shining, thats unreal. So Argo good or not still B.S.!! And don't say the Town because that movie was better the first two times when it was called Heat or even Point Break. Basically same movie. So chew on that and tell me what you think. One more thing how do you win Best Picture but, not Best Director.? explain that.
Dante Ferretti (Macerata – 26 February 1943) is an Italian production designer, art director and costume designer for films. Ferretti was a protégé of Federico Fellini, and worked under him for five films. He also had a five-film collaboration with Pier Paolo Pasolini and later developed a very close professional relationship with Martin Scorsese, designing seven of his last eight movies. In 2008, he designed the set for Howard Shore's opera The Fly, directed by David Cronenberg, at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris. Ferretti won three Academy Awards for Best Art Direction for The Aviator, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and Hugo. He had seven previous nominations. In addition, he was nominated for Best Costume Design for Kundun. He has also won three BAFTA Awards.
Born in 1943 Liverpool, England; appointed MBE in 1965; English rock guitarist, singer-songwriter, record and film producer, best known for his role of lead guitarists for The Beatles. Fully embracing Indian mysticism, he is credited with bringing attention to Indian music and Hinduism to the Western world. Remembered as a kind and loving man, his philanthropic nature led to the founding of the Material World Foundation, established to encourage the exploration of alternate and diverse forms of artistic expression, life views, and philosophies, as well as a way to support established charities and people with special needs. at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival, director Martin Scorsese and Harrison's widow, Olivia, have collaborated on a documentary titled Living in the Material World: George Harrison, a comprehensive look into Harrison's life and work.

Paul Leonard Newman (January 26, 1925 – September 26, 2008) was an American actor, film director, entrepreneur, humanitarian, professional racing driver, auto racing team owner and auto racing enthusiast. He won numerous awards, including an Academy Award for best actor for his performance in the 1986 Martin Scorsese film The Color of Money and eight other nominations, three Golden Globe Awards, a BAFTA Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, a Cannes Film Festival Award, an Emmy award, and many honorary awards. He also won several national championships as a driver in Sports Car Club of America road racing, and his race teams won several championships in open wheel IndyCar racing. Newman was a co-founder of Newman's Own, a food company from which Newman donated all post-tax profits and royalties to charity. As of June 2012, these donations exceeded $330 million.
ALRIGHTY!!! 8-) Now, I have an extremely bias perception & outlook towards The Academy Awards... Reasons such as, The fact that my all time favorite Actor Leonardo Dicaprio has been snubbed countless times, The fact that Gary Oldman after nearly 30years of outstanding work has solemnly been nominated once with no wins, The fact that it took Martin Scorsese up to "The Departed" in 06 for him to nab his first Oscar Gold, The fact that Steven Spielberg needed to make a Holocaust Film in order to win his first Statuette, The fact that a movie about a sinking ship receives more recognition than Mel Gibson's awesome interpretation of Jesus Christ's final hours, The Fact that Al Pacino didn't win one until 92's Scent of a Woman, The fact that David Fincher has never tasted Oscar gold, & the fact that great actors such as Kevin Bacon, Jim Carrey, or John Leguizamo have never even been nominated. ASIDE FROM ALL THAT NONSENSE. Smh, lol. I LOVE THE OSCARS & would love my own statue some day! :-) But till then, here ...
Did you know? When receiving the top award from the Director's Guild of America for this film, Martin Scorsese said that this "is the first movie I have ever done with a plot."
The George Eastman Award for distinguished contribution to the art of film was established by George Eastman House in 1955 as the first film award given by an American archive and museum to honor artistic work of enduring value. Initially, the award was presented to actors, actresses, directors, and cinematographers from the early years of silent film (1915–1925) and from 1957 to artists from the final years of the silent film era (1926–1930). The early recipients included Charles Chaplin, Mary Pickford, Joan Crawford, Frank Capra, and Gary Cooper. The George Eastman Award later evolved to recognize a broader range of artistic talent in the film industry, from George Cukor and Fred Astaire to Martin Scorsese and Meryl Streep. The award ceremony was originally held at Eastman Theater in Rochester and now takes place in George Eastman House's Dryden Theater.

It's a little flick called Silver Linings Playbook. David O. Russell is fast becoming one of my favorite auteurs (joining Danny Boyle, Kathryn Bigelow, Martin Scorsese, Merchant/Ivory, etc.); I loved all three movies of Russell's that I've seen (Three Kings, The Fighter, and now SLP). Bradley Cooper nails the lead role, and Jennifer Lawrence is a sheer force of nature. I really love it when a movie or television show portrays mental illness as it really is, warts and all. Another great recent performance joining the work of Cooper and Lawrence is Claire Danes' portrayal of a chronically bi-polar young woman in the Showtime series Homeland. On the way home from the movie, I was listening to my new Bat for Lashes CD in the car, and as I got lost in the music, I reflected on the fact that my "hobby", i.e. "appreciation" of music/movies/television/books, is actually a very valid pastime (sometimes I feel a little silly naming this as my hobby, but think that the quotation marks are actually quite unnecessary) ...
Second attempt at Goodfellas fact: The "You think I'm funny?" scene was based on a story that Joe Pesci acted out for Martin Scorsese. While working in a restaurant as a young man, Pesci once told a mobster that he was funny and the mobster became very angry. Scorsese allowed Pesci and Ray Liotta to improvise the scene. He did not tell the other actors in the scene what would happen because he wanted their genuine surprised reactions.

Now watching "Hugo" in 3D at home while my money is working for me. Hugo is a 2011 American 3D historical adventure drama film based on Brian Selznick's novel The Invention of Hugo Cabret about a boy who lives alone in the Gare Montparnasse railway station in Paris. It is directed and co-produced by Martin Scorsese and adapted for the screen by John Logan. It is a co-production between Viacom's Nickelodeon Movies, Graham King's GK Films and Johnny Depp's Infinitum Nihil. The film stars Asa Butterfield, Chloë Grace Moretz, Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen, Helen McCrory, Ray Winstone, Emily Mortimer, Jude Law, and Christopher Lee. Hugo is Scorsese's first film shot in 3D, of which the filmmaker remarked: "I found 3D to be really interesting, because the actors were more upfront emotionally. Their slightest move, their slightest intention is picked up much more precisely."The film was distributed by Paramount Pictures and released in the U.S. on 23 November 2011.

From now on, the personal collection of over 100 DVD films is to be reduced by 25-50%, left with only the absolute "best of the best" including Oscar nominated films, critically engaging films, emotional films, etc. If this situation were a Biblical epic, the capitalist consumerism society is abracadabra/abraxas - etymological root/a Gnostic term for God - and I am rejecting magic. +Paraphrased from ...

Today is the 40th anniversary of the release of the Golden Globe-winning "Elvis on Tour." Martin Scorsese: montage supervisor ! Available on DVD and Blu-ray.
So, I currently own 19 films by Alfred Hitchcock, 27 films by Steven Spielberg, 14 films by Martin Scorsese, 11 films by Stanley Kubrick, 9 films by Peter Jackson, everything directed by Edgar Wright, everything directed by Jason Reitman, and 7 films by Danny Boyle...My name is Paul Bulger, and I think I have a problem...by the way, what legendary directors do you think I'm missing from my collection?
If i was an actor my movie was going to be directed by Brian de Palma, Spike Lee, and Martin Scorsese. My supporting actors would be Al Pacino, Robert Deniro, Charlize Theron, Luyanda Mbuli, Vivica A Fox and Eva Longoria.
Well, I finally ended up seeing Hugo (a couple nights ago) after wanting to see it since it first came out... An excellent film, for sure! Martin Scorsese did a great job with it, and I was impressed! :) It was artistic, emotional, quite subtle yet distinctly profound all at once - a piece of filmmaking I think genuine lovers of both film and the artistry of the profession would sink into and appreciate. Within the first few minutes, the remarkable art direction and cinematography were easily apparent to me, and I was happy to see that it had won both of those awards, among others, at the 2012 Oscars.
Here's a great montage of the film "Taxi Driver" with the background theme "Ghost Rider" of Suicide. In two and a half minutes is disturbed captured the essence of the character Travis Bickle (Robert De Niro) and the music fits perfectly in the environment of the disturbing images of the film by Martin Scorsese.
Robert De Niro conducted 12 hours a day a taxi in New York for a month to prepare for the role of Travis Bickle in "Taxi Driver" (1976) by Martin Scorsese. The demand for realism and perfectionism to play the role that would launch her career definitely forced De Niro to an intense driving experience through the streets of the "Big Apple." This experience allowed him to better understand the intricacies and darkest streets of New York women degrading and life of Taxi Driver at night - useful for building your character and to make the story more credible. And of course, to drive any car - a taxi and in particular - the actor had to be legally qualified to do so. So it took a leave of cab driver - "Taxicab Driver's Licence", taken on May 31, 1976, a few months before we started shooting the Scorsese film.
On people who think 'Django Unchained' is an awesome/brilliant movie: N*ggas, Quinton Tarantino's two previous movies (Django Unchained and Inglorious *** have been lucky enough to get brilliant actors (Jamie Foxx, Samuel L Jackson, Brett Pitt, Leanardo Di Caprio, etc.). That is what saved those movies, otherwise the story lines were both average. What makes these watchable is that Quinton does movies differently to other directors. Quinton has under-performed since Pulp Fiction, though he has showed that he is a high quality director. He is a class below Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese. Yet he is above many mediocre directors like Tyler Perry. But hey, that's just one man's opinion!
I don't even consider Cameron as a Director before. And I am not the one who watch only QT and Nolan but am Impressed one for their works. I love Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Roman Polanski , David Lynch , Stanley Kubrick , Steven Spielberg , Steven Soderberg , Clint Eastwood , Guy Ritchie , M . Knight Shyamalan , Tony and Ridley Scott and even I consider Tinto Brass as a Director. As far as my concern these James Cameron and Michael Bay things are very suitable to build next XBOX and PlayStation Games. These guys only deserve to build Time Waste Games for Kids not to make Movies like above mentioned guys. And your Park Chan whatever Asian guy ... I don't know him. But Stoker seems nice. I guess you have seen some scene are shot which QT lifted from your guy. So your fascination towards Park became hesitation towards QT. Even QT inspired from Kamal Hassan Animation Violence in Abhay and he made it into Kill Bill Duo logy. You need to remember two points here: 1. One does not simply became Hollywood leg ...
What an amazing, AMAZing, day today was!! I just spent about 17hours on set with Martin Scorsese and Leonardo Dicaprio. What an experience that was, let me tell ya! It's one I wouldn't trade for all the gold in the world. Look for the movie, it's called, "The Wolf Of Wall Street". Don't look for me (although the back of my head did some amazing work today), but just watching those two working together was really inspiring. ANNND I love Marty's eyebrows. Goodnight! I'm about to crash into my pillow!
There’s a moment in “The Last Waltz,” the amazing documentary about the final concert by THE BAND, when Martin Scorsese asks Levon Helm about the musical landscape in his home state of Arkansas. Levon says “bluegrass and country music…if it comes down into that area and if it mixes there with the rhythm and if it dances, then you've got a combination of all that music.” Scorsese asks what that’s called. And Levon simply says “Rock and Roll.” Andy Clark Mark Sitzman
Spending the day being directed by Martin Scorsese and in a scene with Leonardo Dicaprio. Terrific learning exp from masters. Unreal.

I had the most interesting dream last night -- an epic worthy of Martin Scorsese. Can't go into it in any detail, but you get a sense of the story from the cast of characters: The stars of "Carnal Knowledge" (Jack Nicholson, slender, and with hair; Art Garfunkel; Ann-Margret; Candice Bergen; and Rita Moreno); Jim Harrison; an outdoor writer for the Boston Globe who was a gender shape shifter and who had never heard of Harrison, one of the greatest outdoor writers (and other kinds of writers) ever; my late father; and a woman who rammed her car into Fenway's Landsdowne Street wall, screaming that "those Kennedy boys" were trying to make her brain explode. It was such an absorbing dream, I hated to wake up. Because of the recurring outdoor-writer theme, I blame Jeff Klinkenberg, who posted something about his glory days as an outdoor writer back in the 1970s. He said he is the second oldest reporter at the Tampa Bay Times, but he will soon be the oldest, once Methuselah accepts his buyout package.

Boxcar Bertha: PBR neon lights Mean Streets: PBR neon lights Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore: Olympia neon lights Been watching Martin Scorsese in chronological order and I've noticed that we have something in common.

BOLLYWOOD NEWS! Adi Chopra and I share sheer passion for filmmaking - Dibakar Dibakar Banerjee speaks to Subhash K Jha about his short film with Nawazuddin Siddiqui & his 3-film deal with Yash Raj Films Have you finished shooting your short film? Yes, I've just completed it. Its part of a larger feature film that would have short films by three other directors Zoya Akhtar, Karan Johar and Anurag Kashyap. It's been a great experience shooting with Nawazuddin Siddiqui. It was almost like shooting the core of a film. Please explain? A feature-film on the concept level has 6-7 key scenes. Martin Scorsese said, 'When I think of a film I always think of those 6-7 key scenes'. For example in Raging Bull the key scene is Robert De Niro beating his head against the wall. So those key scenes become the core of your film. Your short film will be part of the larger scheme of films called Bombay Talkies? All the 4 films are stand-alone products. But they will be released together. A bit like Paris Je T'Aime. But the u ...

Casino from Martin Scorsese gave me a pritty headache.
Ray Carney digs his heels into the ground and calls linearism when he sees it: Q: Cassavetes has been called the great cinematic poet of love. What is it like to write about a filmmaker whose work is about love? A: I've read that description of Cassavetes' work dozens of times. If you ask Peter Bogdanovich or Martin Scorsese or Roger Ebert or even Gena Rowlands, that's what they'll say – that all Cassavetes' films are about love. It runs throughout French criticism too – that Cassavetes is the great philosopher of love – or words to that effect. But to tell you the truth, I've never understood what these people are talking about. It seems a very very shallow view of his work. Q: What do you mean? Isn't that just to say the obvious? The films are about men and women and love. A: Well, to start with, “aboutness” isn't a very good way to understand any work of art. What is Hamlet “about”? A man who could not make up his mind? It's not “about” anything that way. It's not an essay, but an exp ...

Downton Abbey Christmas Special, brought to you by Martin Scorsese.
A great review of Lather, Rinse, Repeat. From Historias del Blues. "The guitarist and harmonica player Jason Vivone called his band The Billy Batts because, similar to the gang's gangster film "Goodfellas" by Martin Scorsese, all fit in one car. Vivone is a musician particular, with deep roots in the blues, which has managed to extract not only the music but also a unique sense of humor that entertains, educates, and leaves the audience wanting more. Lather Rinse Repeat found in Jason & The Billy Batts Vivone reminiscent of Hubert Sumlin, Buddy Guy and Son Seals. This view is supported eclectic blues by Matt Burke on drums, Jeremy Clark on bass, Paula Crawford on guitar, Imani Glasgow on drums and Ben Hoppes on the banjo. The result is an artistic testimony of an ongoing commitment to the power of music."

I didn't learn how to make a movie in film school. What you learned in film school was to express yourself with pictures and sound. But learning to make a movie is totally different. - Martin Scorsese

Black history moment: Let's take the time out to wish the late legendary reggae artist Bob Marley a happy birthday today! Bob Marley (02/06/1945-05/11/1981) was born in the village of Nine Mile in Saint Ann Parish, Jamaica as Nesta Robert Marley. A Jamaican passport official would later swap his first and middle names. He was of mixed race. His father, Norval Sinclair Marley, was a White English-Jamaican, whose family came from Sussex, England. Norval claimed to have been a captain in the Royal Marines, and was a plantation overseer, when he married Cedella Booker, an Afro-Jamaican then 18 years old. Norval provided financial support for his wife and child, but seldom saw them, as he was often away on trips. In 1955, when Bob Marley was 10 years old, his father died of a heart attack at age 70. Marley faced questions about his own racial identity throughout his life. He once reflected: I don't have prejudice against meself. My father was a white and my mother was black. Them call me half-caste or whatever ...
Although Martin Scorsese’s ode to the wonders of cinema, “Hugo,” was seen as something of a financial failure, there’s no denying the absolute artistry on display in every frame.

For any fan of movies "Side by Side" is a must watch documentary. Released in late 2012, Keanu Reeves produced and narrates a serious debate between film and digital. Filled with insights and opinions from renown filmmakers, cinematographers, and editors on what movie making was,is, and becoming with the likes of 3D. Keanu's movie is fascinating from start to finish. You'll hear both sides of this heated debate in a real eye opening and historical fashion. From Christopher Nolan, David Fincher, Steven Soderbergh, Martin Scorsese, Danny Boyle, James Cameron, George Lucas, David Lynch, and many more. This doc may not make up your mind on where you stand on this issue, but it will certainly leave with a much fonder respect for film and digital. Seek out this movie out now on DVD and video on demand. A must see 10 out of 10

After An Angel at my Table, she returned to Cannes with The Piano, which won the Palme d’or in ’93, as well as the best actress award for Holly Hunter

Question: Would you rather be physically beautiful/sexy/gorgeous sans brilliance or have a Harvard PHD and massive "brains" but be physically unattractive? My research results were surprising. Some brilliant minded people with top degree cred..said they would trade it in to be a physically beautiful person. Do the "beautiful" people have it easier in this world? Thoughts?

Martin Scorsese: Nobody can talk about films like Martin Scorsese. From the movies of his youth and his mentors to his own films, he brings a lifetime of experience to the conversation.
Everyone should watch the Martin Scorsese documentary on George Harrison, "Living in the Material World." It's sort of low key, but really good--Harrison was my favorite Beatle, and "All Things Must Pass" is the best album by any ex-Beatle.
"I keep stacks of autobiography of a yogi around the house, & I give it out constantly to people. When people need 'regrooving,' I say read this, because it cuts to the heart of every religion."

Ganja Karuppu in a tete a tete with Martin Scorsese on the nuances of film making: = Sudhish Kamath, film critic with The Hindu has co-ordinated a dicusssion with five young directors Thiagarajan Kumararaja, Bejoy Nambiar, Balaji Tharaneetharan, Karthik Subbaraj and Balaji Mohan. And this is what he says about the four : "...broken fresh ground... have put script ahead of star." These words are entirely true about Thiagarajan Kumararaja and to some extent Karthik Subbaraj. I haven't seen Nambiar's film Shaitaan, so no comments. But what about Balaji Tharaneetharan and Balaji Mohan? Do they possess any merit to put them alongside the likes of Thiagarajan Kumararaja? Can their work be described as a film by any yardstick? Both men deserve to be employed at Vani Mahal to write and direct scripts for stage plays. The funniest part is Balaji Mohan gives himself a rating of 7.5/10 for his Kaadhalil Sothappuvathu Yeppadi and Balaji Tharaneetharan 8/10 for his Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom. What a disgrace to . ...

It's not a shock that Obama picked his chief of staff, Jacob "Jack" Lew as his Treasury Secretary to replace Tim Geithner. It's unlikely anyone will ever know Geithner's gone and Lew took his place-- except on Saturdays when the Orthodox Lew doesn't work. (I wonder if Obama is looking into a Shabbos Goy if anything important comes up on a Saturday... Colin Powell, Mario Cuomo, Martin Scorsese and Elvis Presley have all played that role; no, really.) The White House spin machine has put it out there that Lew is "a liberal" who was down with Eugene McCarthy and Paul Wellstone, which scares me since there's a good chance that if they're saying that, he's probably really a horrible conservative. What we do know about him is that when he was chief operating officer of Citi's Alternative Investment department, he invested in a hedge fund that was betting on the collapse of the housing market.
Directed by Martin Scorsese. With Paul Newman, Tom Cruise, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Helen Shaver. Fast Eddie Felson teaches a cocky but immensely talented protégé the ropes of pool hustling, which in turn inspires him to make an unlikely comeback.
Pitchfork recently posted a list of their writers favorite books about music and they did a decent job. I was particularly delighted to see Love In Vain - A Vision Of Robert Johnson listed. I read this book years ago and found it to be a unique take on the Johnson story. I'll let Pitchfork' Brandon Soderburg tell you about it: Love in Vain: A Vision of Robert Johnson by Alan Greenberg Alan Greenberg's Robert Johnson screenplay has never been made into a film, though people have certainly tried. In the late 70s, *** Jagger backed the project. Throughout the 90s, Martin Scorsese was gonna direct, and in the early 2000s, Diddy was to star in a version. But Love In Vain the film still hasn't happened, leaving only a stand-alone biopic script that reads like a great American novel. Instead of conveniently conflating history like most dramatized musical biographies, the book focuses on milieu and mood. Greenberg, who went to the Mississippi Delta and chased down friends and enemies of Johnson for research, i .. ...
