Brad Pitt Walks With A Cane

Brad Pitt Walks With A Cane

Brad Pitt has been spotted walking around with a cane on private property on Thursday (January 5) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

“He tore his MCL,” a source exclusively tells The MCL is short for medial collateral ligament, one of four ligaments that stabilizes the knee joint.

Over the weekend, the 48-year-old actor picked up some groceries with son Pax in his new sidecar motorcycle.

The L.A. Times reports that Brad‘s upcoming film, World War Z, may become a franchise.

Paramount sees the zombie thriller “as a trilogy that would have the grounded, gun-metal realism of, say, [Matt] Damon‘s Jason Bourne series tethered to the unsettling end-times vibe of AMC’s The Walking Dead.”

    There was a rumor about Johnny Depp and Amber Heard when shooting Rum Diary. So we will see.

  • well

    Depp has been acting strange lately, drunk in public, his comment about The Rum Diary’s failure and voiding tax. Something isn’t right in his life. He also co-financed Hugo, it is reported Hugo’s budget $175 million, apparently its box office is very disappointing.comparing to its giant budget.

    There is a delusional person here who believe Angie would have anything romantic to do with drunking JD. JD is falling down drunk in the streets. His body guard is always holding him up to preventing from falling. When will you get it in your head Brad will not be going back to SS. Why don’t you recommend JD for SS.

  • Love B&A


    agree, something is goingon with Depp and I am sure Rum Diaries of epic fail added salt to the wound regarding whatever is bothering him. He has had so many public episodes of not so “normal” behavior, this will not shock me one bit! All these various apperances jamming with bands, being rip roaring drunk, never being seen with VP at any RC event let alone as a family. I think somethings is off, I hope for the kids sakes they will resolve it. To say I am shocked would be a big fat lie because I was around when JD was a complete arse & was happy to see him straighten up with VP.
    Now here comes the dang-on “double standard” again. IF all these telltale signs were smacking the tabloids right across their faces for going on 2 years,ie. not ever spending time together, never attending RC’s, premieres together, never spending time in the same country let alone in the same city…IF, that were the JP’s this would have been CNN news years ago. I honestly thought when JD came out of that bar and kissed the pavement, when it was obvious he was drunk, the tabloids would be all over it. Nope, they reverted right back in a week back to their “fiction” news about the JP’s.
    Goes to show you who is the one & ONLY REAL HW Royalty couple!

    Angelina Jolie: Taking a new role in the director’s chair with In the Land of Blood and Honey

    Stars as big as Angelina Jolie don’t do telephone interviews with journalists — they don’t have to. So a phone conversation with Jolie — one of dozens she is doing with press around the world to talk about her directing debut with the drama In the Land of Blood and Honey — is akin to having Helen Mirren fill your order at the drive-thru.

    But here’s Jolie on the phone, after several last-minute cancellations. It’s the end of the day and she sounds tired, but it demonstrates how passionate the 36-year-old actress is about the film she both wrote and directed about a Bosnian Serb soldier Danijel (Goran Kostic) and Muslim artist Ajla (Zana Marjanovic) who find themselves on opposite sides of the conflict in the Bosnian War in 1992. It opens here Jan. 20.

    She is doggedly promoting In the Land of Blood and Honey not because she’s fulfilling a studio-mandated publicity contract, but because it means so much to her that people see it and learn from the experience.

    “I never considered myself a writer or anything,” said Jolie, a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador who has been on field missions around the world, including Bosnia. She wrote the story in her journal as a kind of “homework” to learn about the area.

    “I’d been travelling over two years going to and from conferences, seeing how society is damaged by war and lack of intervention, how people can cave to just how society is broken,” Jolie said. “I write sometimes in journals. I just decided to do it in different form, but it was going to be private. This would be good for me to have an excuse to finally understand what happened during the Bosnian war because I was 17 when it happened.”

    The script explores the violence of war from women’s perspective, following Ajla and other captives in a female prison, most of whom are sexually brutalized by their captors. One of the guards, Danijel, was in a relationship with Ajla before the conflict and now she has been imprisoned and they must live in a new reality that changes everything between them.

    Jolie’s spouse, Brad Pitt, was the one who convinced her to take her writing public.

    “Brad had read it one day and said, ‘It’s kind of good,’” said Jolie, adding she thought the idea of making a movie from the story was crazy.

    “I’m not a writer, but let’s send it to people from all sides of the conflict without my name on it and get a response,” Jolie suggested. “And if by some miracle, people are willing to do it and we can pull together people from this region and get them to help us to understand the (nature) of this conflict, it would be an extraordinary life lesson and I’d be compelled to do it.”

    Funding was problematic, so Jolie and Pitt put up a large chunk of money toward the rumoured $13 million budget. She explained doing so and signing on as director gave her control of the movie and allowed her to use actors from the former Yugoslavia who had lived through the war, as well as being able to shoot two versions of the film: in English and in Bosnian-Croatian-Serbian (BSN).

    “I was happy to be that person only because I wanted to spend my money that way and I believed in the story with this kind of tone,” Jolie explained.

    The film has faced controversy. Early on, there were erroneous reports it was the story of a Muslim woman who falls in love with her Serb rapist in a prison camp, which almost killed the project when female victims of war protested. More recently, writer James J. Braddock accused Jolie of plagiarizing his 2007 book The Soul Shattering. She has denied the claim.

    “Like I said, it happens a lot,” Jolie said patiently, referring to claims of plagiarism, the weariness about having to answer the question for the hundredth time barely masked. “People like to report it.”

    Jolie steers the conversation back to the movie. She talks about the difficulty of working in another language when shooting in BSN. “It was really hard. But they were so prepared. I’d never known actors that prepared.” She also comes back repeatedly to the sense of stewardship she felt over the project. It was more than just a movie for her actors and Jolie respected that, feeling the pressure to get it right as she moved through the final editing process.

    “You hope that you make the movie that everybody will have put their faith in,” she said.

  • from JJB

    “For them, it’s not just a film. For them, it’s something personal, it’s something at home for them; they’re still living it.” Jolie added. “There’s still hate, there’s still so much to recover from. There’s still so many fresh wounds in (their) own home.”

    Jolie is less concerned with the commercial potential for the film than she is with its ability to educate and inform. And she’s not convinced she’ll direct again unless the script has meaning for her and a message for viewers.

    “It’s all so new for me. I loved the experience, but I don’t know,” she said. “I think (if) I’m driven that will mean something to me, and more than just the craft of filmmaking. So that if that shows itself, then I might try. But right now, I still don’t understand how I ended up doing one,” she concluded with a chuckle.

    I can’t resist observing that Jolie must find it refreshing to talk to a reporter for half an hour and not once be asked about Pitt, her kids, marriage or pregnancy.

    “I’m just so used to it now. I find it all fine, but I’m very grateful that (I’m being asked about) what I’ve done,” Jolie allowed, adding she has spoken not just with movie beat writers, but also with reporters who covered the war in Bosnia who shared their stories with her. “I’ve had the most in-depth conversations with journalists that I’ve ever had in my career.

    “It’s nice to have something else to focus on that we all know is more important than all these other things.”

    Immersed in Movies: Editor Christopher Tellefsen Pitches Moneyball

    by Bill Desowitz | January 6, 2012 | 0 Comments

    Christopher Tellefsen

    Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill, “Moneyball”
    Editing is all about internal rhythms for Christopher Tellefsen, and “Moneyball” fit like a glove. On the surface, it’s a David & Goliath sports movie. But it’s really about the struggle against conventional wisdom for the fast talking and even quicker thinking Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane. Similarly, “Moneyball” is a studio film with a major star (Brad Pitt), but it’s really a throwback to the 70s with its anti-establishment vibe. You could just imagine Sydney Pollack directing Robert Redford.

    “It’s about sticking to your dream against all odds,” Tellefsen suggests. “Here’s this guy, Billy, chewing tobacco in ugly clothes and it’s totally not Brad Pitt.”

    Indeed, “Moneyball” reminds us that baseball is as much about psychology as poetry. Beane blew it as a player because he lacked confidence; now he seeks redemption as the ultimate puppet master. With the help of Jonah Hill’s revolutionary computer analysis, Beane slowly transforms his “island of misfit toys” into an unconventional winner.

    “The look, the feel, and the sound are different,” Tellefsen concedes. “There are huge sections of silence.” Like “Capote,” though, also directed by Bennett Miller, the key was finding the right tempo. But with a million feet of footage to condense, “Moneyball” was like doing 11 “Capotes.”

    “Bennett saw it as a quest,” Tellefsen continues. “Billy was overly praised as a ball player but misunderstood. He was not living the life he should be living and was eaten up by baseball. It owned him from the age of 17 and he failed at it for 15 years. And then he made the decision to become a scout; and then he found his way. Then finding Peter [Hill] was a revelation.

    “It’s such a wonderful thing for him to discover what went wrong and to overcome that self-doubt,” Tellefsen says. He points to the old adage, “Many are called, few are chosen,” used in voice-over during one of the flashbacks, as a thematic summation.

    “Bennett talks a lot about the philosophy of the piece, even the first time it comes into conception. What are the underpinnings, what is its purpose? And that flows into the mindset of doing it. During shooting, I watch dailies alone and there is very little input from Bennett during the rough cut. He is so caught up on the set.”
    Tellefsen typically shows Bennett the rough cut a week after the shoot. And then they sit down and go back to square one. “Finding the flow to tell the outer and inner stories was the biggest challenge,” he asserts. “I was always aware of not stopping the momentum. It was all about showing Billy’s private and public face and the insider aspect of it. You’re in the basement with these guys and feel the bad ventilation. There are some wonderful things that Brad does. In the first game, he’s glad handing and then his face just falls. It’s so indicative that he’s putting on a face and it’s so effective. That’s just before he says to Peter that he can’t watch the games; just text him.”

    Tellefsen says another challenge was handling the losing and winning streaks. Like the flashbacks revealing Beane’s agonizing career as a player, they were written in documentary fashion. The filmmakers then discovered a treasure trove of archival footage, which allowed them to reshape the commentary around the footage. “Even during the winning streak, he’s questing, too. He just can’t accept the winning. And that brings us to the long trade sequence where Billy and Peter are frantically negotiating on the phone.”

    By contrast, when the apprentice is forced by Beane to cut a player, it’s a turning point in overcoming his self-doubt. “It’s done in one cut and is spectacularly intense,” Tellefsen asserts.

    One of the emotional highlights, however, is watching Beane bond with his teenage daughter, the only woman in his life. She keeps him grounded and emotionally connected, enabling him to slowly crawl out of his shell and interact with his players during their record-breaking 20-game winning streak.

    Meanwhile, Tellefsen refers to the early confrontations with the talent scouts (many of whom were played by actual scouts) as a mini-movie. They were rewritten the day before or improvised on the spot. Bennett, true to form as a documentarian, just let them run with it.

    “Moneyball” is fundamentally about the difficulty of adapting to change and learning to survive with less — an apt metaphor for our times. “It’s a beautiful portrait of a person and Brad got deeply into it. He gave us an enormous amount to work with and lots of variation. It’s such an unconventional film.”

    FYI, full article at link.

    In any case, we’re starting to enter the endgame. Oscar nominations are just over two weeks away, with the DGA being the last major group to announce on Monday, while the Critics Choice and Golden Globes ceremonies are creeping up, marking the progression from wondering who’ll be nominated, to wondering who’ll actually win. We’ll be back again next week, and with ballots out, and nominations due soon, we’ll be highlighting a few folk who’ve undeservedly fallen out of the conversation of late. If you have your favorites, comment below.

    1. “The Artist” (1)
    Not doing great guns at the box office, but it doesn’t matter; the film’s been taken to the hearts of Hollywood types. And, well, pretty much everyone else. If only we could find a way to get Uggie nominated.
    2. “The Descendants” (2)
    A pretty giant hit, closing on $50 million despite never having gone over 1000 theaters. Should top “Up in the Air,” but doesn’t necessarily stand any more chance at Best Picture, even if it seems to be the less sentimental alternative for some voters to “The Artist.”
    3.”The Help” (5)
    Looking stronger and stronger as more and more films fall off, and it’ll be by far the top grosser among the nominees, it’s certainly locked in at this point, but it would take a real upset for it to beat out “The Artist,” although some might think it more ‘significant’ than others films on the list. Like Stanley Kramer’s ghost.
    4. “Hugo” (3)
    The box office was always going to be the question here, and it’s not been great, but not totally embarassing, so the film hasn’t been derailed. Indeed, Marty could be a real threat for Best Director; we have a feeling there could be a split in the category this year.
    5. “War Horse” (4)
    Box office is ok, but keeps being snubbed by things like the WGA and the Art Director’s Guild. Should be fine for a nod, but looking unlikely to be the competition for “The Artist” that it once seemed.
    6. “Moneyball” (6)
    The thinking person’s choice of a Best Picture nomination, it’s the first one on the list that’s not a mortal lock for a slot, but it’s pretty much there; in fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if it ended up with more first-choice votes than “War Horse” or even “The Help.”
    7. “Midnight in Paris” (9)
    With Woody looking like a strong possibility for a director slot, this is solidifying its place. Having said that, can you imagine older voters picking this over “THe Artist” for their first-choice slot?
    8. “The Tree of Life” (7)
    And now we start to get outside those that we think will get nominated, and, away from the critic’s awards excitement, buzz is dropping again on Terrence Malick’s film; missing out with the PGA doesn’t help. But may well have enough fervent supporters for it to make the cut.
    9. “Bridesmaids” (-)
    Certainly has the momentum behind it, and Universal are pushing aside, but will older Academy voters go for it? We suspect not, but a nomination is, for the first time, possible.
    10. “The Ides of March” (10)
    A PGA nod is another boost for a film that Harvey Weinstein once labeled as his biggest threat. It’s a film that may gain a lot of second or third places votes; but can it get the 5% of first choices needed?
    11. “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” (8)
    Greeted on release by some truly poisonous reviews, and very few raves, a film we’d once pegged as a frontrunner looks increasingly likely to miss out altogether. But we could have said that about “The Reader” as well, and some Academy audiences have reportedly eaten the film up, so not to be counted out altogether. Let’s see what happens when it goes wider.
    12. “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” (-)
    We suppose PGA and WGA nods keep it alive, but the film wasn’t brilliantly received, and the box office hasn’t set the world alight. If it is nominated, it’s as an apology for “The Social Network” not taking Best Picture last year.
    12. “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy” (11)
    Doing gangbusters at the box office (outperforming “The Artist” at the same point in release, among others) but being shut out by the guilds makes this very unlikely to happen, unless the film becomes a total blockbuster when it goes wider this weekend.
    13. “My Week With Marilyn” (-)
    If the BAFTA long-list shows one thing, it’s that the British crowd, a not insubstantial chunk of Academy membership, are responding to this one. But it’s competing with ‘Tinker’ for those votes, and our guess is that they’ll cancel each other out.
    14. “Drive” (15)
    Continue to hang around the fringes of the conversation, it’s extremely well-liked, but, let’s face it, is here to make up the numbers.
    15. “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 2″ (14)
    A PGA nomination might have given Warners a little hope after all the money they’ve been throwing after this one, but it didn’t happen.

    Brad Pitt made a double play for ‘Moneyball’

    BY GEOFF BOUCHER • Los Angeles Times | Posted: Friday, January 6, 2012 12:00 am

    Like a midseason coaching hire for a losing ballclub, director Bennett Miller inherited an uphill battle when he was brought in as the director of a shaky project called “Moneyball,” but he had two key players on his side — and both of them were named Brad Pitt.

    With its half-dozen Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild nominations, “Moneyball” is now viewed as a quality contender in the Oscar nomination race, but the sports film with a message was clearly a longshot project when Miller stepped in after the summer 2009 departure of Steven Soderbergh, who had spent years developing the script.

    The difference maker was the persistent presence of star and producer Pitt, who was an MVP on both sides of the camera, Miller says.

    “You work all day with Brad the actor and there’s that energy, and then we’d wrap at the end of the day and maybe half an hour later we’d get together in this little area outside his trailer and he’d be Brad the producer,” Miller said. “We would look at the next day, just go over things and maybe have a glass of wine. Sometimes, it would be two or three hours of discussing and planning, and it’s pretty exhausting making a movie, but it became this ritual for us. And then early the next morning, Brad the actor is back, being on set and making things happen in a totally different way.”

    And now Pitt may be swinging for the fences on Oscar night in the lead actor category. He seems to be a lock for that nomination, considering those early nods he’s already collected for his “Moneyball” work as Billy Beane, the real-life maverick general manager of the Oakland A’s who fought major league resistance to his reliance on traditionally overlooked stats in team-building. Pitt the producer may also hear his name called out in the best picture category if the upstart film makes that final cut.

    “Moneyball” looks like a sports film on paper, but on closer inspection it’s a message movie about fighting an entrenched system that doesn’t recognize or reward the true value of people. That’s what drew Pitt to the project — that and his restless need to ‘surprise and challenge” himself by seeking out “passion projects and not doing what’s been done before just because it’s available.”

    Pitt assembled an unlikely body of work last year. Besides “Moneyball,” he starred in Terrence Malick’s impressionistic and challenging “The Tree of Life,” a film made far from the crowd-pleasing gravity felt by most Hollywood releases. Pitt also gave voice to an existentially yearning krill (yes, as in whale food) with buddy Matt Damon in the animated film “Happy Feet 2.”

    Rounding out the eclectic list, he spent much of the year running from undead extras while filming “World War Z,” an adaptation of the Max Brooks globe-trotting horror novel and the most expensive zombie movie in the history of Hollywood.

    “Like I said, I like mixing it up,” Pitt said with a chuckle during an October interview in Hungary on the Budapest set of “World War Z.” “You need to make it interesting for yourself to make it interesting for other people.”

    In “World War Z,” due in theaters right before next Christmas, Pitt will play a United Nations fact-finder and family man who desperately races around the globe to determine the origins of a zombie pandemic that has toppled civilization in short order. The film is directed by Marc Forster (“Finding Neverland,” “Quantum of Solace”) and is similar in spirit to September’s “Contagion” (from director Soderbergh and starring Damon) with its geopolitical bent and the aspiration to deliver social messages amid the moans and screams.

    For Pitt, the big sci-fi thriller also represents his strongest bid to have a big film franchise of his own, which might be viewed as the missing piece of his career jigsaw puzzle. Forster and Paramount Pictures each view “World War Z” as a trilogy that would have the grounded, gun-metal realism of, say, Damon’s Jason Bourne series tethered to the unsettling end-times vibe of AMC’s “The Walking Dead.”

    Time will tell whether audiences embrace that idea. Pitt knows too well that big popcorn plans don’t always pop; he learned that on “Troy,” the sprawling Bronze Age epic in 2004 that cost $175 million to make but earned anemic reviews and pulled in just $133 million in domestic box office (although it did add $350 million in foreign markets).

    Ah man…I’m bumming. I missed out on ragging on Ticky lying to VF about being the apple of Jane Pitt’s eye. Of course Ticky didn’t tell VF that when she invited Jane and Julie to visit her in Chicago while she shot TBU that she spent the whole time drunk off her ass whining about Brad and Angie and trying to pump Jane for info. Or that she was such a nuisance Jane and Julie ended the trip early to the hell away from her. Ticky had been completely cut off from Brad’s life for MONTHS and it ws driving her crazy that nobody would tell her what was going on with him – and Angie. Or how about how she told VF that she and Brad weren’t speaking…then a few months later in a Nov interview turned around and told Larry King that “we don’t not speak”…whatever the fvck that means…this was a full month AFTER the divorce was final and she hadn’t spoken to Brad since the Night Before Party way back in late Feb. No sirree, Bob. No one will ever be able to accuse Ticky of full disclosure…

    @Passing Through: As a Steelers fan, I have to say unfortunately AP is *not* the latest athlete to tear his ACL. Our #1 running back, Rashard Mendenhall, tore his in last Sunday’s game, which puts him out for the playoffs and who knows what else.
    I think they tore them on the same day. I’d forgotten about Mendenhall…but I won’t say that too loudly because 2 of my sisters are life-long diehard Steeler fans and I’ll never hear the end of it. With Nitwit Rothleisberger already injured the Steeler’s chances in Sunday’s game aren’t looking very good.
    Did you ever see that story about the Steelers fan who died a few years ago and his family honored his burial requests? They had his wake and funeral in their living room with is body dressed in Steelers gear – inluding a #1 styrofoam finger – sitting in his Lazy-Boy recliner…with a taped Steeler Super Bowl game playing. I showed that to one of my sisters and she said, “And? I see nothing wrong with that whatsoever…” I think it gave her ideas…

    If anyone wants to read Laimey they will go to her site. The hags are reaching so low to find something. This is a great weekend for Brad and Angie.. Zee has her day on Sunday. and they have a RC on Saturday. So lots to look forward to. Disregard the trolls. I have to say I love that the fans are not quoting them.. nice to not see there name on a post. Thumb the idiots down and don’t give them the recognition of name recognition.

    I need to get some work down so I can have time to watch for pictures tomorrow.

    Angelina Jolie brought her boys Pax and Maddox along yesterday for an afternoon of shopping in LA. The gang picked up bags full of party supplies, likely for Pax and Maddox’s sister Zahara’s birthday. Pax played with a toy rifle his mom bought inside the shop as well. Zahara Jolie-Pitt turns 7 on Sunday, and we’re celebrating by looking back at 25 of her most adorable photos! Angelina, Pax, and Maddox wrapped up their outing with a stop at McDonald’s. The whole Jolie-Pitt clan will mark Z’s big day in California. Brad will be part of the fun, despite his dealing with a recent leg injury that requires the use of a cane.

    The hens doth protest too much. If Ticky’s so effin’ happy, then why do they spend all of their time stalking Brad and Angie? The two of them don’t stalk Ticky and plan their PR based on her comings and goings the way she does, so they should be over at hen central discussing Ticky’s thinning hair due to years of hair extension abuse that they were led to believe was her own hair and her plastic surgery “but not as much as people think” admissions. Ticky just told her fans she’s been lying to them about her “natural look” and here they all sit on the J-P thread screaming about how happy Ticky is with he stolen man and thinning hair…which she’s since been putting in and taking out hair extensions for every event since she cut her hair so her explanation doesn’t float, but don’t tell that to the hens…

    I read a few weeks ago that Amber Heard broke up with her girlfriend of 3 years and is now dating a guy. PR move now that her career is taking off? Who knows.. BTW, I thought Johnny & Vanessa supposedly had an open relationship? I don’t follow the two of them so I have no idea. I just don’t think she’d get too het up about him getting some on location. She seems very sangfroid about their relationship…

    There’s a lot of people these days who are totally unaware of JD’s “scandolous” past. It wasn’t that long ago that he had to give up ownership of The Viper Room due to a lawsuit from his former partner over some “misplaced funds”/dodgy accounting/embezzlement. Right around 10 years IIRC. People see Captain Jack Sparrow and the Mad Hatter and no nothing about River Phoenix’s death, fighting with Kate Moss and wrecking hotel rooms, drunken brawls with Winona Ryder, etc. And of course none of that shite gets dragged up in his interviews the way Angie’s past is always brought up in her’s. So she wore her husband’s blood around her neck, used her own blood to write a message on a shirt she wore to her wedding, wanted to be a funeral director because of how bad she thought her grandfather’s funeral was, etc. Big whoop. That’s nothing compared to possibly supplying your BFF with the smack that killed him, physical fights with your girlfriends and as good as admitting to embezzlement. But Depp gets a pass and Angie’s still treated like an oddity.

    @Passing Through:

    Finally, you give me hope that I am not alone for not being shocked regarding the not confirmed Depp &VP gossip.
    Now I don’t mean to be a hypocrite by thinking of his past since we ALL know people can grow up and change, but somehow Depp’s recent actions make me believe he might have taken a step backwards in the wrong direction. For the sake of their 14 year long relationship & their gorgeous kids I hope we are all wrong & this is all usual gossip from tabs, but I have my doubts.

    Disney Sets Robert Stromberg To Helm ‘Maleficent’

    EXCLUSIVE: Disney has tapped Robert Stromberg to make his feature directorial debut on Maleficent, the Linda Woolverton-scripted revisionist take on the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale that is being constructed as a star vehicle for Angelina Jolie to play the villainess. While Stromberg is new to the director’s chair, he is no stranger to dealing with big-ticket spectacle films. He has been production designer on Avatar and Alice In Wonderland, and Disney’s upcoming Oz The Great And Powerful. He also worked on visual effects for such films as 2012, Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World’s End and Master And Commander. Joe Roth is producing.

    This gives Disney feature heads Sean Bailey and Rich Ross another tentpole feature to complement the Marvel product, with A-list talent. Maleficent stacks up alongside Oz The Great And Powerful, and the Johnny Depp-starrer The Lone Ranger. Stromberg’s repped by UTA.

    Angelina Jolie is ‘In the Land of Blood and Honey’ in Directorial Debut
    Submitted by PatrickMcD on January 6, 2012 – 8:59am.

    CHICAGO – The sorrows of war has been played out too many times in our so-called modern age. The excessively cruel Bosnian war – a three year conflict that introduced the vile term “ethnic cleansing” – is the background of Angelina Jolie’s directorial debut, “In the Land of Blood and Honey.”

    The Bosnian War began in 1992 and in three short years displaced two million people and killed over 100,000 more. The Serbian army was especially cruel to the Muslim population, and Jolie symbolizes this by showing a split between a Serb and Muslim who were lovers before the war. The camera doesn’t blink in this film, as rape, murder and abject human atrocities are played out in a war that was a useless, ideological waste of time. Jolie works from her own very literate script, exposing a horror that happened a relatively short time ago.

    Danijel (Goran Kostic) and Ajla (Zana Marjanovic) are first shown enjoying a evening in a night club in Sarajevo. He is Serbian and she is Muslim, but that has not prevented their attraction to each other. An explosion rocks the scene, and the beginnings of what will be the Bosnian War has symbolically begun. Danijel is called into military service, since his father is General Nebojsa Vukojevich (Rade Serbedzija), who leads the ethnic cleansing of all religious and non-Serbian nationalities from Sarajevo.

    Danijel and Ajla meet again in the midst of this action, as the troops he commands flushes out the apartment building that she and her sister Lejla (Vanesa Glodjo) reside in. The women are rounded up and subjected to intense cruelties, including the violence of rape. Ajla is spared this punishment by essentially becoming Danijel’s property. Their specious relationship somehow grows in this environment, but Ajla’s urge to escape is ever present. Loyalties, allegiances and the very notion of love is distilled and destroyed through a war torn atmosphere.

    This is a stunning debut for Jolie, in the sense that there are few punches pulled in the depiction of the cruelty, and although the subject matter is dense and complicated for the ill-informed world outside of the conflict, Jolie manages to make the purpose of these hostilities clear by focusing on the horror of human nature. This is mostly the story of the women caught up in the web of the cleansing, and the willingness for their captors to consider them tools for revenge and heartless brutality.

    The acting is top-notch, and because many of the cast are Bosnian Serb, Muslim and Croatian Serb actors, this demonstrates a passion to get the story right through the portrayals. Goran Kostic as Danijel is a stand-out. His connection to Ajla, both before and after the war, stirs an inner conflict within him that leads to a battle within his soul, which the actor effectively communicates. He is stuck in a classic military situation – it is easier for him to join and fight than listen to the better angels of his nature. Zana Marjanovic as Ajla must go through a spectrum of emotions in captivity, yet never shows the cards in her hand. It is an unique give and take in a relationship.

    The supporting players are notable as well. Rade Serbedzija as General Vukojevich is the epitome of human blight in war. He lives for his destructive power, and places the same dispensation upon the head of his son. The performance is unforgettable in its chilling ruination. Vanesa Glodjo as Ajla’s sister Lejla gets significant screen time, both within and outside the conflict, and has an unspeakable barbarity inflicted upon her. War is beyond hell, even more than can be imagined.

    The story is a bit inflexible, despite following a very apparent timeline. The unpleasantness gets a bit overwhelming, which I’m sure was Jolie’s point. The bottom line is that this “celebrity” and movie star has morphed into a driven political artist through this realm, and provides for our narrow viewpoint a bit of the modern definition of war and remembrance to consider.

    We are generally weak and cowardly as human beings. When fighting for the artificial “territories” that we believe we “deserve,” we need the ever-gargantuan weapon equivalents when staking our claim. How proud we are with those killing implements at our disposal, how small we actually are when we use them against our brothers and sisters.

    ITLOBAH is still not playing in my area. UGH! I saw Hugo this week, and I loved it. I can’t believe it’s not doing well at the BO. People prefer to see an Adam Sandler movie over a Scorsese movie? It’s so sad.
