    PARK CITY, Utah, Jan. 22, 2000 -- Larry (not his real name) wanted $30 for a $10 ticket to "American Psycho." If you waited 15 minutes, you waited too long, because then Larry wanted $40 -- and got it, too. (Or so he thought.) According to one overheard comment Friday night at the "Psycho"'s sold-out Sundance premiere at the Eccles Theatre, the 15-year-old and his underage posse were possibly the first scalpers in the history of Robert Redford's mountain paradise. Such is life in this now (reall

    PARK CITY, Utah, Jan. 23, 2000 -- So, what's it like when you sell your movie at Sundance? Like this: You drive through the streets whooping, yelling, cranking up the stereo and tossing black Adidas ski hats to the unwashed (and un-picked-up) masses. The groovesters of "Groove" are, yes, grooving. A day after Sony Pictures Classic snapped up the low-budget slice-of-rave-life flick, the film's players were partying in the streets here this afternoon. And to hear one of its stars tell it -- this w

    HOLLYWOOD, Jan. 11, 2001 -- You won't be hearing the name Steven Soderbergh at this year's Independent Spirit Awards. Instead, try Miguel Arteta, Darren Aronofsky and Kenneth Lonergan -- whose "Chuck & Buck," "Requiem for a Dream," and "You Can Count On Me," respectively, have nabbed a field-best five nominations each at the 16th Annual Independent Spirit Awards. "Chuck & Buck" -- the second full-length feature from Arteta -- was nominated for best feature under $500,000, screenplay, director, s

    Get ready for another X-citing box office weekend. After its $54.5 million opening last weekend, 20th Century Fox's "X-Men" should easily hold on to the top spot. Even if it falls 50%, the PG-13-rated sci-fi action adventure will still gross about $27 million. Directed by Bryan Singer and produced by Lauren Shuler Donner and Ralph Winter, "X-Men's" extensive cast is headed by Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman and Ian McKellen. DreamWorks' opening of its R-rated supernatural thriller "What L

    SANTA MONICA, Calif., Feb. 10, 2000 -- If director Deepa Mehta is down in the dumps these days, who can blame her?

In today's Daily Variety, the "Star Wars" creator springs for a full-page ad in the trade newspaper, declaring: "Our heart is with Deepa Mehta ... in her current struggles to film 'Water.' Keep fighting, Deepa

Twelve years after the scandalous collapse of the multimillion dollar Christian empire built by Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, comes a film which tells the inside story of the rise, fall and resurrection of "the Queen of the Eyelashes." One of the most adored and reviled women of her time, the film follows her tale from her first encounter with Jim, through the glory days of PTL, to the scandal that brought both their empire and family tumbling down. This affectionate portrait, narrated by RuPAUL, tracks Tammy Faye's victorious battles against addiction and colon cancer, her divorce, the imprisonment of both Jim Bakker and her second husband, Roe Messner, and her short-lived career as a television talk show host. Interviews include Jim, their son (complete with pierced eyebrow), daughter and others who lived the story first-hand. But it's Tammy herself, one of the most compelling TV stars ever, who manages to be both surprising an endearing as she takes us into her shocking world of Televangelism.
