Rooney Mara is fantastic in this delicate, sun-soaked Western

Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

Actor Dennis Hopper has been taken to a New York hospital with flu-like symptoms, his publicist Sheila Feren announced today. The 73 year old actor, who was in town to publicise the TV series spin-off of the movie Crash, is currently being treated following complaints of stomach ailments.

Onlookers reported seeing him taken out of the ambulance with tubes and pipes, one describing it as a scene eerily reminiscent of Blue Velvet.

Breaking through as a goon in 1955's Rebel without a Cause, Hopper rose to fame as co-writer and star of Easy Rider in 1970. Since then, roles in David Lynch's Blue Velvet and Speed have kept the actor's profile high, alongside his extensive art collections - he was one of the first to buy an Andy Warhol can of soup, at $75.

Two chat show appearances with Crash co-star Eric Roberts (above, right) have been cancelled as a result of the illness. No further details of his condition have yet been released.
