How Cameron Crowe Made a David Crosby Documentary and Found His Future

How Cameron Crowe Made a David Crosby Documentary and Found His Future
David Crosby has shaped Cameron Crowe’s life. The first time he interviewed the musician, it was 1976 and Crowe was an 18-year-old Rolling Stone wunderkind. Now Crowe is 62, and he says that producing “David Crosby: Remember My Name” is the project that will determine his future.

“Weirdly, the Crosby project is the thing you do because you can’t not do it,” he said. “It became the thing that helped guide the path. I went with what I was interested in. I want to make movies that way. I want to to be curious and tell the story, and I don’t want to play the game to tell the story if it overwhelms the story.”

When Crowe ran into the aging rocker in the hallway at J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot offices, Crosby was with Jill Mazursky; she was producing A.J. Eaton’s documentary about him, and asked Crowe to

‘The Dirt’ Review: Netflix’s Mötley Crüe Memoir Pic Flaccid & Bleached Clean

‘The Dirt’ Review: Netflix’s Mötley Crüe Memoir Pic Flaccid & Bleached Clean
Spoiler Alert: This review contains details of the movie version of The Dirt

Having taken decades to make it to the screen, you kind of knew any adaptation of Mötley Crüe’s 2001 memoir The Dirt was going to be problematic, to put it politely.

Infamy has a tiring tendency to downgrade over time to just being lame, which truly is the greatest praise one can heap on this Jeff Tremaine directed pic that debuted today on Netflix. Perhaps due from the limited requirements of his past gigs helming the often hilarious but plotless Jackass movies, Tremaine delivers set-ups in The Dirt, but no actual story besides an elongated Behind The Music.

The fact is Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee, ankylosing spondylitis suffering Mick Mars and Vince Neil deserved better. On board as producers, the battle-scarred bass player, drummer, guitarist and singer have earned a movie that confessionally puts it all out there,

Zombieland Double Tap Adds Luke Wilson to Growing Cast
The cast of Zombieland Double Tap continues to grow. Luke Wilson has signed on for a mystery role in the sequel, which is currently in production. It's been nearly ten years since the first Zombieland arrived, providing us with one of the more memorable and beloved modern horror comedies.

According to a new report, Old School and The Royal Tenenbaums star Luke Wilson has boarded the cast in an unspecified role. He joins other new additions such as Zoey Deutch (Set It Up), Rosario Dawson (Daredevil) and Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley).

Cameron Crowe Responds to Emma Stone’s ‘I’m Sorry!’ at the Golden Globes for ‘Aloha’ Role

Cameron Crowe Responds to Emma Stone’s ‘I’m Sorry!’ at the Golden Globes for ‘Aloha’ Role
When Emma Stone shouted “I’m sorry!” following a Sandra Oh monologue joke at this year’s Golden Globe Awards, the director of the film that led to her part in the controversy heard it happen.

Cameron Crowe, whose 2015 feature “Aloha” cast Stone as a character of partial Asian descent, talked about the moment on Friday with managing editor Christian Blauvelt at the IndieWire Sundance Studio, presented by Dropbox.

“We worked on the character for about a year. The fact that she would find any turbulence and that that would happen is heartbreaking to me,” Crowe said. “So, lessons learned. And you’ll see them in the next movie.”

Following the film’s release, Stone’s character became a prominent example of Hollywood’s practice of “whitewashing” film and TV roles, the term for casting white actors as characters of color. A joke about the topic from Oh — she said

Review: Mobile Homes Peers Into the Depths of the Lower Class

The surprising, cold and deadly performance by Imogen Poots in Jeremy Saulnier's Green Room (2015) caught me off guard, perhaps because I associated the actress more with her slighter roles in Cracks, Fright Night, and Need for Speed than with her early, very demanding supporting role in 28 Weeks Later. Two years ago, she caught my eye again in Cameron's Crowe's series Roadies, standing out for her ability to capture a certain lighter-than-air quality in her character; I was beguiled by her appearance and bearing, a bright spot in a series that never quite lived up to the potential of its premise. Perhaps if I'd seen more of her earlier films, which range all over the map from comedy to drama to thrillers, I'd have...
