    In the darkness the warehouse looks like any other, a metal-roofed hangar next to a clattering overpass, with homeless people sleeping nearby in the shadows. But inside, workers quietly unload black plastic crates filled with merchandise so valuable that mobs have looted delivery vehicles, shot up the windshields of trucks and hurled a rock into one drivers eye. Soldiers and police milling around the loading depots give this neighborhood the feel of a military garrison. [] The fight for food has begun in Venezuela. On any day, in cities across this increasingly desperate nation, crowds form to sack supermarkets. Protesters...

    A backdrop of Third World atrocity, suffering and merciless human-rights violations serves as the canvas for a faux-profound Hollywood love story in Sean Penn's stunningly self-important but numbingly empty cocktail of romance and insulting refugee porn, The Last Face. Beautiful movie stars rugged, earthy Javier Bardem sporting flawless, bedroom-chic stubble, and iron butterfly Charlize Theron, wearing dewy no-makeup makeup and an excellent moisturizer battle for 130 stultifying minutes to listen to their hearts while their souls take a hammering. Audiences are more likely to check out and just leave them to it....

    UPDATED: Sean Penns humanitarian romance The Last Face is being savaged on Twitter after premiering Friday at the Cannes Film Festival. Commenters on social media are describing the film, which stars Charlize Theron and Javier Bardem, as the worst of the fest. Others are also quipping that the picture is so awful that it destroyed Penns relationship with Theron. The duo broke up a year ago. When critics weighed in, they largely echoed the flash reactions that bubbled up online.

"It doesn't matter what Trump says because all he is doing is selling," the actor said.

    It’s been just over four months since Sean Penn met with the world’s most wanted drug lord, and things aren’t going as the actor had planned. “My article has failed,” Penn told CBS’s Charlie Rose in an interview that will air on 60 Minutes this Sunday. The Oscar winner was referring to the 10,000-plus word screed detailing his meeting this October with notorious Mexican cartel boss Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, and the events leading up to it. Rolling Stone published Penn’s article this past Saturday, following Guzman's capture six months after his Hollywoodesque escape from a maximum security prison this...

    Actor Sean Penn said in a Friday preview of an interview with CBS' "60 Minutes" that his article based on a secret interview with then-fugitive cartel leader "El Chapo" "has failed" to achieve his goal of sparking conversation about the War on Drugs. Penn met the notorious Sinaloa Cartel leader, whose real name is Joaquin Guzman, back in October with the help of Mexican actress Kate del Castillo. His story for Rolling Stone went live on Saturday, one day after Mexican authorities announced the fugitive's capture. Journalists immediately criticized the piece.

    If there was any crime committed in the making of Sean Penn's Rolling Stone interview with Mexican druglord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman - and rest assured, federal authorities are inquiring - it's the murder by slow, excruciating torture of the reader's patience. Before ever reaching Penn's Q&A with the cartel chief-cum-international fugitive, one must endure 9,000 words - yes, Nine Thousand - of Penn's sanctimonious, self-indulgent, violently purple, and generally grammatically dubious prose. Example: >>>I'd offered myself to experiences beyond my control in numerous countries of war, terror, corruption and disaster. Places where what can go wrong will go wrong,...

Penn was not "acting" as a journalist, he was one when he and the soap star bravely entered the jungle and risked physical and financial harm to pursue the huge exclusive interview with the fugitive who was the most wanted man in the world. I would have done it. And I would have kept my mouth shut if I promised the source that I would keep my mouth shut...

    If U.S. federal officials have their way, El Chapo will most certainly be extradited to face drug trafficking charges in the United States. And one of their important witnesses in this case could end up being actor Sean Penn. The Feds could potentially issue subpoenas to force Penn--and his crew--to testify against the drug kingpin--if they aren't already cooperating.

Mr. Guzmán, known as “El Chapo” or “Shorty,” was recaptured Friday after escaping from a maximum-security prison in Mexico in July. Mr. Guzmán faces federal indictments in Chicago and in six other U.S. cities for drug trafficking, money laundering and other crimes, such as homicide.

However the timing will likely depend on any injunctions filed by Guzman´s lawyers.

    When El Chapo was arrested (again) I didn’t pay all that much attention to the story. That’s not to say that it wasn’t important or that both Mexico and the DEA didn’t have a good reason to hunt him down, but it’s not the sort of thing that’s going to change the world in a substantive, positive way. When you take out a cartel kingpin like that there are plenty more ready and eager to take his place. Even if you could identify, locate and take out his entire army, all you’d manage to do would be to cause...

Only Penn doesn't blame his late friend at all, preferring to spin a yarn about paranoia and relationships meant to excuse the late leader from guilt. Confused? Wait until Penn compares Venezuela's collapsing economy with that of America's stagnant fiscal house. The Mystic River star talked politics with...
