Sydney Pollack died yesterday of cancer at the age of 73.  Pollack, a film director, producer and actor, is perhaps best know for directing the Oscar-winning epic "Out of Africa" with Robert Redford and Meryl Streep.  He also directed "Three Days of the Condor," "Tootsie," and 'The Way We Were," among others.  Recently, he appeared opposite George Clooney in "Michael Clayton," which he also produced.

My SP Top 10:

1.  "Three Days of the Condor"
2.  "The Way We Were"
3.  "Out of Africa"
4.  "Tootsie"
5.  "Jeremiah Johnson"
6.  "Iris" (executive producer)
7.  "Sense and Sensibility" (executive producer)
8.  "Husbands and Wives" (actor)
9.  "Eyes Wide Shut" (actor)
10. "Michael Clayton" (actor, producer)

  • That Time of Year

    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.
