This was a surprising year all around as a monster film dressed up as a neo-Western from the Coen Brothers of Minnesota took the top film prize, and four European actors swept all the acting prizes leaving the likes of Johnny Depp and George Clooney out in the cold. London born Daniel Day-Lewis (50) picked up his second Best-Actor Oscar, to no one's surprise for his work in Paul Thomas Anderson's "There Will Be Blood", but Best Actress to Marion Cotillard (33) for her portrayal of ...

And so too, that image was entrancing as the cinema blackened and every hour yet another film festival debut emerged from the darkness and spellbound its audience. ‘Go deeper’ was the message… and the 53rd Sydney International Film Festival delved deep into the wealth...
