I would have given my cheesecake of the month membership AND my "Degrassi Junior High" DVD collection to write about Kim Kardashian this week, but another columnist already called dibs, so I had to move on to someone equally annoying. However, I couldn't think of anyone else that I thought should be euthanized. Then, for no apparent reason, George Clooney popped into my head. Basing this purely on his public persona, I will say I love George. Conversely, I would never want to date George.

It's only been two years since Anahita Ghazvinizadeh moved from Iran to the U.S. to pursue a film-focused master's in studio art at the School of the Art Institute Chicago, but the 23-year-old filmmaker already has racked up a nomination for the Cannes Film Festival's prestigious Cinéfondation Prize. “I was really surprised and very happy,” Ghazvinizadeh said. “We worked really hard on this film, but I wasn't expecting that it would get into a great festival like Cannes.” Ghazvinizadeh's 21-minute short film, “Needle,” the story of a preteen girl getting her ears...

The film is a "passion project" of Rachel Cook , a former futures trader who was inspired to...

*1/2 (out of four)   I agree with Chicago native Jeff Garlin: Many people are stupid. Yet in the star/director/co-writer's “Dealin' with Idiots,” Max (Garlin) makes no effort to understand the lunacy around him. He merely stands on the fringes with an irritated smirk and grumbles about the behavior demonstrated by parents of kids on his son's baseball team.   And, in fact, Max brings most of it on himself. The comedian engages with each parent individually as research for a possible film project based the exaggerated personalities of the...

* (out of four) Resembling the all-time dullest episode of MTV's "Undressed," "The Canyons" unfolds like Lifetime tried to make a Cinemax movie. Writer Bret Easton Ellis may also have stapled together random pages from scripts based on his superior work ("American Psycho," "The Rules of Attraction," "The Informers") and called it good. As Tara, Lindsay Lohan blurts out line after line as if she wants to finish the take before forgetting something. As her potentially sociopathic boyfriend, Christian, porn star James Deen delivers a performance...
