He attended Yale with Edward Norton and Paul Giamatti, his film debut was in Dolly Parton's "Straight Talk," his cult classic "Office Space" costarred Jennifer Aniston, and his Golden Globe-nominated turn in "Band of Brothers" was co-directed by Tom Hanks. But the Hollywood bachelor's career takes a scary turn Wednesday night in Stephen King's TNT anthology "Nightmares and Dreamscapes."

Joe Swanberg has long been a director whose films have been more widely talked about than actually seen. He has become controversial for his improvisational style of ultra-low-budget filmmaking, his frank depictions of sexuality and his central position in the oeuvre known as "mumblecore. " Following his first film, "Kissing on the Mouth," in 2005, Swanberg began to really break through with 2007's "Hannah Takes the Stairs" and 2009's "Alexander the Last," examinations of the foibles of self-discovery within the post-collegiate creative class.

The 25 best L.A. films of the last 25 years "Los ANGELES isn't a real city," people have said, "it just plays one on camera." It was a clever line once upon a time, but all that has changed. Los Angeles is the most complicated community in America -- make no mistake, it is a community -- and over the last 25 years, it has been both celebrated and savaged on the big screen with amazing efficacy. Damaged souls and flawless weather, canyon love and beach city menace, homeboys and credit card girls, freeways and fedoras, power lines and palm trees . . . again and again, moviegoers all over the world have sat in the dark and stared up at our Los Angeles, even if it was one populated by corrupt cops or a jabbering cartoon rabbit.
