I've been hearing a lot of stuff about Kurt Cobain lately, namely the morbid fact that he has surpassed Elvis as the most lucrative deceased star. And when there's a market out there that large, there are bound to be people out there trying to cash in. Most recently, a new "documentary" entitled Kurt Cobain: About a Son is coming out. It seems the film is mainly audio tapes between Kurt and rock journalist, Michael Azerrad. The director of the film has put together "atmospheric" imagery to compliment the interviews. But most accounts I've read of the film, say it's pretty weak. Click here for glimpse of the film and check it out for yourself.

Who doesn't love Gong Li...? Her and Zhang Yimou have teamed up once again. Check out the beautiful trailer for Curse of the Golden Flower here. Apparently the early buzz from Sony Classic is that they are so happy with the film, that they are going to begin a best a Actress and and Director
campaign for Gong and Zhang. I wonder if the the costume designer will also get a nod also, ugh uhhhhhmm.
