Film Review

Carnage

Is Roman Polanski really the best guy to deliver a lecture about bad parenting?

The French play God of Carnage became the toast of Broadway in 2009 when it hit the Great White Way with high-wattage film actors Jeff Daniels, Hope Davis, James Gandolfini and Marcia Gay Harden in the lead roles. All four actors ended up nominated for Tony Awards, and the production became one of the longest-running stage plays of the 2000s. Now infamous director Roman Polanski takes a stab at a movie version starring Christoph Waltz, Kate Winslet, John C. Reilly and Jodie Foster. That’s hardly what you’d call a step down in quality from the stage version. But what soars on a stage doesn’t always fly on a movie screen.

Kate Winslet: Divorcee

Over the weekend, actress Kate Winslet and her husband, director Sam Mendes, announced that they have officially separated after less than seven years of marriage. Hot damn! I think I’ve totally got a shot here. I met Ms. Winslet a few years ago during a press junket for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Check out my interview with her from 2004. Speaking from personal experience, the lady is incredibly smart and well spoken, as you might well suspect. She’s also very pretty in person. I’m not saying we flirted or anything. But I am saying I’d leave the wife and kids on Christmas morning, if she asked.
