2007's most anticipated film?

Posted By on Thu, Jan 25, 2007 at 8:45 AM

No, it doesn't star Sacha Baron Cohen, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston or Nicole Kidman.  I'm talking about "Hounddog" starring Dakota Fanning which is on the bill at the Sundance Film Festival.  Yep, the kid actor.  As I noted in an earlier post, she's generating a lot of attention and a good bit of controversy for a rape scene.  Slate.com discussing the matter as it's lead story today.  The New York Times and the LA Times have both covered it extensively. 

As I also noted, Ms. Fanning had quite the wit when responding to the moronic far right trying to shut the film down.  Kudos to her. I'm pleased to know that a 12 year old can out flank Ted Haggard's crowd.

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
