Mysteries Of PittsburghArticle by Benjamin Wagner

On the Line: I am surrounded by dudes with beards typing into their iPhones and Blackberries. I am one of them. As a huge Michael Chabon fan, my hopes are high. As a huge Michael Chabon fan who hasn’t cracked the novel since its 1989 release, though, I have no idea what I'm in for. I’m hoping for a "Wonder Boys" prequel. Read More...

Watch our adventures below, and then click here to see more video interviews with Adrian Grenier, Josh Peck, Method Man, Colin Farrell and so many others.

Sundance Film FestivalArticle by Alyssa Vitrano

In the Line: Heard it was a Spanish-language film about a guy who's life unravels and so he heads to a beach town in Peru. Had heard it was ok, but not much other buzz on it.

In the Theater: Solid, but kind of slow. Wasn't unengaging, but at the same time nothing ever really large happens. They get to the beach, party, hook up, fight, do drugs. Meh. Read More...

Fields of FuelArticle by Damian Vaca

In the Line: The most exciting part about Sundance is the entire waiting in line experience -- especially when one of your great friends are in the film! Carrie Lazar, a bio-diesel driver, was the sole reason why I went to this screening. The vibe was of excitement and the hope that this film will not be a 2-hour brain washing gimic that preaches more than teaches. People spoke about the grassroots marketing efforts of marked bio-diesel taxi cabs driving up and down main street to trying to fully understand what exactly this whole bio-diesel thing is and does it really have anything to do with them.

Patti SmithThose who've seen "Juno" know that the iconic movie teen is wise beyond her years. Now, one source of that wisdom is eager to return the love.

"I was honored by that," grinned legendary punk rocker Patti Smith at Sundance Monday, discussing a shout-out to her in the hit film. “It makes me really happy; I get really excited when I walk on stage and see teenagers and people in their twenties."

These days, Smith is enjoying her recent induction into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame, and is performing packed concerts in Park City to promote a documentary entitled "Patti Smith: Dream of Life." And thanks to that now-famous scene when Jason Bateman asks Ellen Page what she considers the greatest music of all time (resulting in quick shots of punk pioneers, including Smith), the 61-year-old is once again being discovered by a new generation.

What Just Happened?Article by Benjamin Wagner

On the Line: I'm surrounded by olds. This fact -- coupled with one-two punch from the dude who whispered under his breath, "I heard it's not that good," and my esteemed colleague Larry Carroll's minimalist review ("It starts like 'The Player' but ends like 'S1mone'") -- does not bode well for the film. Sometimes, though, one's schedule picks one's screenings here, not the other way around. Read More...

Brian Cox Ask veteran actor Brian Cox about the movies he’s most proud of, and one of the first titles out of his mouth is inevitably the 2001 cult classic "L.I.E."

The WacknessArticle by Alyssa Vitrano

"The Wackness" is one of the most talked about films at the festival this year, so we've hit the ground running with our coverage, starting at the film's premiere to talking to the eclectic cast. One of our very own saw the film and cuts through the hype to share her thoughts.

On the Line: This was probably the film I'd heard most about, solely due to the fact that Mary-Kate's in it. I knew it was about a teenaged drug dealer who pays for therapy with pot, which sounded like it could turn out to be kind of lame. Read More...
