Lumíère Festival: Tilda Swinton – a British Iconoclast

15 October 2017 2:44 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Many actors profess to be surprised when they win an Academy Award; few look as sincerely stunned as Tilda Swinton did when she was named Best Supporting Actress in the 2007 ceremony, for her expertly frosted turn as a corrupt corporate lawyer in “Michael Clayton.” Her shock, one suspects, had less to do with how favored she was or wasn’t by the bookies than her bewilderment at being in the hunt for Hollywood gold in the first place: Little about the way the iconoclastic British star forges and curates her unusual career has courted the awards and embrace of the mainstream, yet they’ve found her anyway.

The Oscars certainly seemed a world away when the 25-year-old Swinton — who caught the acting bug while studying politics at Cambridge, and joined the Royal Shakespeare Company after graduating — began her film career with Derek Jarman, Britain’s pioneering godfather of New Queer Cinema.

Harvey Weinstein Accusations: How Film Festival Environments Provided a Backdrop For Sexual Assault

11 October 2017 8:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In 1995, Harvey Weinstein tried to give Mira Sorvino a massage, chasing her around the room when she rebuffed him. In 1996, he sexually assaulted rising French actress Judith Godrèche in a hotel room; a year later, he had another incident with Rose McGowan. In 2008, actress Louisette Geiss fled a hotel room where Weinstein tried to get her to watch him masturbate. In 2010, he tricked another French actress, Emma de Caunes, into visiting a hotel room where he exposed himself and tried to get her lie down. 

In all of these accounts, Weinstein seemed to think that the relative privacy of the hotel room provided him with a sanctuary in which he could perform deplorable acts on whomever he pleased, but the context was more specific than that: In every instance, he was at a film festival.

61st BFI London Film Festival Review – Lucky (2017)

9 October 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Lucky, 2017.

Directed by John Carroll Lynch

Starring Harry Dean Stanton, David Lynch, Barry Shabaka Henley, Beth Grant, and Tom Skerritt.

Synopsis:

The spiritual journey of a ninety-year-old atheist.

Late, lamented Hollywood legend Harry Dean Stanton had the sort of face the camera practically keeled over for. Less a visage than an ordnance survey map of Hollywood history, Dean Stanton’s features were testament to his extraordinary 60 year career as a ubiquitous, scene-stealing support player in the likes of Alien and Repo Man.

Small wonder that debut director John Carroll Lynch makes such sublime use of the actor’s wonderfully weathered features in his lyrical small town drama Lucky. Indeed, Stanton’s face practically is the entire story, competing with the sun-baked, cactus-strewn landscapes for sheer ruggedness.

Named after Stanton’s central character, Lucky is that rare movie that gifts the actor a juicy lead role, comparable to his iconic desert-trekking loner in Wim Wenders’ Paris, »

It’s been just over a year since Anton Yelchin‘s tragic passing, and it’s still hard to believe he’s gone. An actor with gifts and talent he still had yet to share, we can take some comfort that there’s still one more film to treasure from Yelchin in “Porto.”

‘Blade Runner 2049’: Will Strong Reviews, Ryan Gosling Push Sequel to Success?

29 September 2017 5:46 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

One of the most memorable moments at this year’s CinemaCon came on opening night when Sony Motion Picture Group chairman Tom Rothman debuted footage for “Blade Runner 2049” and said, “Netflix, my ass.”

Six months later, domestic distributor Warner Bros., international distributor and production partner Sony and production company Alcon Entertainment are about to find out whether the Denis Villeneuve-directed sequel to Ridley Scott’s iconic 1982 original has what it takes to get filmgoers off the couch.

It’s starting to look promising for the sequel, which opens Oct. 6 and stars Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford reprising his Rick Deckard character from the 1982 film. Sony co-financed the production with Alcon Entertainment, while Warner Bros. handles the domestic rollout through its longstanding output deal with Alcon.

It’s highly beneficial that the original is held in such high regard, Rothman says, but adds that “Blade Runner 2049” is being pitched very much on its own, rather »

Review: Christopher Doyle Visually Dazzles, Narratively Disappoints in ‘Hong Kong Trilogy’

20 September 2017 4:28 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

An often serenely meditative exploration of sociopolitical life in contemporary Hong Kong, Christopher Doyle’s Hong Kong Trilogy is a stunningly-photographed blend of documentary and fictional narrative, following real locals playing themselves. We can’t tell where real life ends and fiction begins, and ultimately, we don’t care. The film marks Doyle’s first directorial effort, crowdfunded via a Kickstarter campaign in 2014. Doyle, the self-proclaimed Keith Richards of cinematographers, is one of the most beloved and provocative DPs in the world, endowed with an exquisite eye for composition. His new film, however, meanders around for a merciful 85 minutes before fading to black, never fusing together into anything impacting, beyond a fleetingly casual interest in the characters. Other than that, we’re left with just a handful of dazzling visuals to recall, and little more.

The film is divided across three chapters. The first, titled Preschooled, follows the students of a local private school, »

15 September 2017 6:35 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Julie Delpy, the Oscar-nominated French-American writer, filmmaker and actress, will receive the European Achievement in World Cinema award at the 30th European Film Awards in December. The honor recognizes Delpy’s rich and diverse career in front of and behind the camera.

The Paris-born Delpy is best known for her role opposite Ethan Hawke in Richard Linklater’s “Before Sunrise” (1995), “Before Sunset” (2004) and “Before Midnight” (2013), which she co-wrote. Delpy received an Oscar nomination in screenwriting for “Before Sunset” and “Before Midnight” (shared with Linklater and Hawke) as well as a Golden Globe nomination for her performance in the latter.

A graduate of Nyu’s Tisch School of the Arts, Delpy has directed, written or acted in more than 30 films. She’s been nominated at the European Film Awards twice, first as an actress in Volker Schlöndorff’s “Homo Faber,” in 1991, and as a director in 2007 with “2 Days in Paris,” which also earned a Cesar nomination.

Toronto: Le Pacte Acquires France on Javier Fesser’s ‘Campeones’ (Exclusive)

5 September 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid — In a bellwether deal, Jean Labadie’s Le Pacte, one of France’s most distinguished independent distributors, has secured French distribution rights to “Campeones,” directed by Academy Award-nominated Javier Fesser (“Binta and the Great Idea”).

Sold by Madrid-based Latido Films and produced by Spain’s Morena Films (“Altamira,” “Cell 211,” “Comandante”), Telefonica pay TV division Movistar + (“Tadeo Jones 2,” “Dragonkeeper”) and Fesser’s Películas Pendleton, “Campeones” has already tied down a Spanish distribution deal with Universal Pictures Intl. (Upi), whose releases include some of the biggest Spanish comedies ever.

Le Pacte’s French rights pick-up is another early market indicator of interest in the film,” as Latido Films prepares to move “Campeones,” currently in post-production, at Toronto’s market.

Founded by Labadie in 2007, Le Pacte plays off a mix of big name auteur titles (Jim Jarmusch’s “Paterson,” Ken Loach’s “I, Daniel Blake”), films from on-the-rise French talent (such as Thomas Lilti, whose »

Adam Driver, David Lowery, and Jeff Nichols Debate Indies, Studio Movies, Netflix, and Legacies

2 September 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Last weekend in Little Rock, Arkansas, Jeff Nichols launched Premiere, the first event of his newly minted Arkansas Cinema Society. The writer-director of “Loving,” “Mud,” and “Midnight Special” screened a selection of smart movies, including Jim Jarmusch’s “Paterson” and J.J. Abrams’ “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” hosted by star Adam Driver, whose family spent summers in Arkansas. Austin-based David Lowery brought “Pete’s Dragon” and “A Ghost Story” and producer Noah Stahl came with current release “Patti Cake$.”

I interviewed Driver, Lowery, and Nichols about how they define creative independence as they balance high- and low-budget movies. (It has been edited for length and clarity.)

Tiff 2017: Sara Driver’s Basquiat Doc Acquired by The Match Factory

25 August 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Sara Driver: Unseen Zinema/YouTube

The Toronto International Film Festival hasn’t even begun yet and already a woman-directed selection has been sold. Variety reports that Sara Driver’s doc “Boom for Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat” has been acquired by The Match Factory. The company snagged the film’s international rights ahead of its world premiere in Tiff’s Documentary slate.

“Boom for Real” presents the young adult life of artist Basquiat. According to the official synopsis, the documentary “combines the life of Basquiat, as this effervescent figure, during his late formative years in New York City, and how his vision was embodied not only by the city, but its people and arts culture of the late 1970s and ’80s. NYC was changing: the downtown artists were creating their own scene in places which became famous later like Club 57, Cbgb, Mudd Club, and pop-up galleries. Basquiat was emblematical, crossing borders between art forms.”

Driver depicts Basquiat’s story through archival footage and interviews with those who knew the artist, including rapper Fab 5 Freddy, director Jim Jarmusch, and graffiti artist Lee Quiñones.

In addition to directing, Driver produced the doc with Rachel Dengiz (“Medora”).

“I am highly enthusiastic to bring Sara Driver’s film to the world,” Match Factory managing director Michael Weber commented. “Basquiat’s story blew me away by the richness of his art and his personal strength.”

Basquiat’s life has been a film subject before. Tamra Davis directed the 2010 in-depth doc “Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child” and Julian Schnabel helmed the 1996 narrative feature “Basquiat,” which starred Jeffrey Wright as the artist.

Driver has previously directed narrative films. “You Are Not I,” “Sleepwalk,” and “When Pigs Fly.” “Boom for Real” marks her documentary debut.

“Boom for Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat” premieres September 8 at Tiff. The fest runs September 7–17.

Tiff 2017: Sara Driver’s Basquiat Doc Acquired by The Match Factory was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Review: The Table Gathers Quartet of Superb Actresses in Elegant Drama

21 August 2017 6:00 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Kim Jong-kwan assembles some of the finest actresses working in Korea today for his delightful new drama The Table. In some ways the Korean indie cousin of Jim Jarmusch's Coffee and Cigarettes, this elegant, delicate and humorous collection of four extended conversations works beautifully as a feature film, unlike the vast majority of omnibuses that are so popular in local cinema. A barista readies her small cafe for the day's business in a quiet Seoul neighborhood. Around the same table, from morning until evening, different woman engage in conversations as they navigate old, new and uncertain relationships. In the first story, Jung Yu-mi (Train to Busan) plays a top star who meets a former flame from her youth, now a salary worker. They haven't met...

After Soderbergh: See the Top 10 Box Office Track Records of Classic Indie Filmmakers

19 August 2017 12:40 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In a career that began with “sex lies and videotape” in 1989, “Logan Lucky” is Steven Soderbergh’s 26th theatrical release. It will extend his record as the top-grossing American director to come out of the independent scene in its formative years — a period we’ll define as 1975 (Joan Micklin Silver’s “Hester Street”) through 1992 (Quentin Tarantino’s debut, “Reservoir Dogs”).

To be clear, Soderbergh’s an outlier; his billion-dollar box office dwarfs every other indie filmmaker. However, looking at the performance of his contemporaries who got their start in that indie film movement, you may be surprised at who’s on the list. (Note: “Outside wide release” means less than 1,000 screens. Also, the list doesn’t include directors like Sam Raimi and Abel Ferrara, who have independent roots but were not discovered via the film festival/arthouse pathway, or Alan Rudolph, another significant ’80s figure; he started in horror films in the early ’70s. »

Why the Coen Brothers’ Netflix Series Could Be Good News for the Film Industry

10 August 2017 1:22 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“We are streaming motherfuckers!” That was the full text of Ethan and Joel Coen’s statement on the news that Netflix would be distributing the brothers’ anthology miniseries “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.” There was an exclamation point, but no comma. They’re not streaming, motherfuckers. They are streaming motherfuckers. They’re not doing something, they’re becoming something. In this context, “streaming” isn’t a verb, it’s a noun.

This point did not go unnoticed. Maybe it was the result of a careless intern in the PR department; more likely, it was just the kind of thing that happens when revered artists are forced to participate in a press release (especially when said revered artists’ have spent much of their careers chortling at the absurdity of capitalism and its systems). To that point, the Coen brothers don’t really do typos — they’ve been making period movies for more than 30 years, »

Isabelle Huppert Is a Monster After Dark In Serge Bozon’s ‘Mrs. Hyde’ — Review

10 August 2017 7:19 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Isabelle Huppert excels at playing tough, individualistic women, but she can just as easily dial it down for more fragile performances, so it was only a matter of time before she landed a role that let her have it both ways. In Serge Bozon’s peculiar comedy “Mrs. Hyde,” she’s a beleaguered French schoolteacher who gets struck by lightning and taps into the much more powerful, vindictive side of her personality lurking beneath the surface.

It’s a fascinating role in an uneven but frequently insightful movie riddled with amusing asides and enigmatic developments, partly because Huppert doesn’t undergo a radical transformation. Instead, she subtly finds herself at war with her inner confidence, and it’s often hard to tell which side has the upper hand.
