  • Toronto International Film Festival dominated by theme of youth-meets-violence
    Friday August 10th 2012

  • THE BRIEF: What advertisers made it to the podium at the 2012 London Olympics?
    Wednesday August 08th 2012

    The Olympics are not the Super Bowl, or Wimbledon, or The Masters or the World Cup. They’re not even the World Series. The Olympics are their own visceral genre of world hope and glory.

    Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo has claimed the top spot in the list of the 10 greatest movies ever, compiled by the British Film Institute’s Sight & Sound magazine.
