Topic - James Gray
In James Gray's "The Immigrant," a dismal tale of survival in 1920s New York, Joaquin Phoenix shifts through a gallery of identities, from savior to cad to pitiful loner. His performance - often improvised with co-star Marion Cotillard - is masterfully layered, though his character wasn't initially written that way.
Floating in past a misty Statue of Liberty, James Gray's "The Immigrant" somberly gathers its majesty as a metaphor-rich story of passage and survival. It's an old tale told with rare precision, channeling grand themes into an intimate melodrama.
A committee of the Louisiana Attorney Disciplinary Board has recommended that New Orleans City Councilman James Gray be disbarred or have his law license suspended for at least three years for mishandling four of his private law cases, violating a dozen ethical rules in the process.
"For those who have fallen - those doing the same jobs we're doing - it's the least I can do for these folks and these families that are still here," Gray said.
Gray has said he was inspired by Puccini, and with a staggering last shot, "The Immigrant" reaches a crescendo of operatic beauty.
