London Film Festival Launches
Today sees the launch of the Times BFI London Film Festival " two weeks of cinematic heaven
For the next two weeks the streets of London will be awash with big screen talent, as Tom Cruise, Hale Berry, Naomi Watts, Cate Blanchett, Christian Bale, Heath Ledger and more walk the capital's red carpets.
Among the festival highlights are Robert Redford's new political thriller Lions for Lambs, Brad Pitt and Casey Affleck going head-to-head in the who-done-it for morons The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, and Cate Blanchett playing Bob Dylan in I'm Not There.
The festival's at its best when you're off the main street, so we're keeping a close eye on talk-radio drama Talk to Me with Don Cheadle, while Interview looks set to really test Sienna Miller's career and Gulf War movie Redacted brings legend Brian DePalma back on top of his game.
You can lose hours thumbing through the catalogue of screenings, but don't worry - we'll be keeping you up to date with all the latest news and reviews.
