Elizabeth Taylor's funeral started late _ just the way the screen legend wanted it.
Elizabeth Taylor's family mourned the screen legend in a brief private funeral service Thursday at a Southern California cemetery famous for being the final resting place of Hollywood celebrities, including her good friend Michael Jackson.
"Hugh Hefner's image as a fast-living Lothario has done much to make a success of the Playboy brand, and news of his impending nuptials to a woman young enough to be his great-granddaughter will further promote the idea of him as a lovable old rascal," writes David Leafe at the Daily Mail.
(Weinstein, $24.95) - Woody Allen keeps doing it year after year - turning out solid, thoughtful films. The themes in this London thriller may not be surprising (crime and punishment, guilt and remorse) but the performances the director coaxes out of his stars are. Ewan McGregor and Colin Farrell both play against type as brothers who are talked into murder by their uncle (Tom Wilkinson) as an ambitious means of escaping their working-class lives. Mr. McGregor - last seen on-screen as an effete publisher in "Miss Potter" - plays the brash, confident brother who commits the crime with barely a second thought. Mr. Farrell, the swaggering "Miami Vice" star whose appearance as more sensitive characters in this film and in "In Bruges" marked a real artistic turning point, plays the conflicted brother whose guilt over the crime threatens to derail the lives of all three men. As with most Woody Allen releases, there's not a single extra on this disc.
