On May 13th, the film world was shocked and saddened by the tragic death
of documentary filmmaker Malik Bendjelloul, who had won an Oscar just last year for the documentary "Searching for Sugar Man"
. In the month that has passed since then, more details have emerged of the months and days that led up to his suicide. The Hollywood Reporter
profiles the life and death of Bendjelloul and takes a look at how sudden success can bring about even more sudden depression.

MY DATE WITH DREW
- Follow up to this past thread
Though the first post's linked page has changed since the last discussion. What happened to the web journal behind this movie?

The picture on the site for the upcoming movie K-Pax
makes me want to add "...that Kevin Spacey's gay?" to that tagline. Not, of course, that there would be anything wrong with that.
Actually, the one page of celebrity rumors I mostly buy
, even if many are humdrum (drug/alcohol problems? say it ain't so!) claims he is, although who cares. David Duchovny, pothead, pr0n collector; Macy Gray, functioning heroin addict -- now that's
what I wanna hear! (The page seems to have disappeared, so I've linked to the google's cached one, which unfortunately only goes halfway down the alphabet. Anybody have a better link?)

Separated at Birth?
has been chosen to play
in the upcoming Tomb Raider movie. I must say that from the neck up, she's actually a pretty good choice. (From the neck down, no woman alive measures up.)
The only problem is that Ms. Jolie is California, not England. I wonder how well she can do an English accent.
"Val Girl Lara" just doesn't make it.
