‘The Trip to Spain’ Review: Steve Coogan and Rob Bryden Impersonate Caine Mainly on the Plain

8 hours ago

The Trip to Spain” is the third movie in a series starring Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon as versions of themselves. (It has also played as an expanded group of episodes on television.) In their first film from 2010, “The Trip,” they toured restaurants in Northern England and did many impressions of actors, most notably dueling impersonations of Michael Caine so stingingly accurate that it will probably be impossible to watch Caine ever again without thinking of Coogan and Brydon and their send-up of him. They took “The Trip to Italy” in 2014 and reprised their Caine impersonations amid many »

‘The Lovers’ Review: Debra Winger and Tracy Letts Rekindle Their Marital Spark

8 hours ago

The Lovers” is that rare thing: a serious romantic comedy with farcical elements that never puts a foot wrong. Writer-director Azazel Jacobs (“Terri”) seems to know that there is no margin for error with this kind of project, and so he plans out his comedic scenes with both precision and sophistication. He takes a real chance by allowing musician Mandy Hoffman to create the kind of full-blown and near-constant score with violins that hasn’t been heard much since at least the early 1990s, and this music really buoys the scenes up and makes them sparkle. Since “The Lovers” is a comedy of. »

13 hours ago

A promotional stop at the Tribeca Film Festival escalated into full-blown awkwardness and fan backlash for the cast and filmmakers of Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale.” Based on a seminal 1985 novel by Margaret Atwood, “The Handmaid’s Tale” centers around  a servant in the household of a high-ranking official in a totalitarian society called Gilead.

Universal and Fox Play Chess With ‘American Made,’ ‘Kingsman’ Sequel Release Dates

15 hours ago

Cat and mouse games are typically played within action films — but in the case of two high-octane projects from Universal Pictures and 20th Century Fox, it’s happening around them. On Thursday, Universal announced that Doug Liman and Tom Cruise’s “American Made” would jump back one week from a planned opening of Sept. 29, 2017 to Sept. 22. The decision cleared the film from the path of a sequel to Colin Firth’s 2015 surprise hit “Kingsman: The Secret Service.” On Saturday morning, however, Fox moved “Kingsman” from Sept. 29 to Sept. 22, once again placing it head-to-head with “American Made.” Also Read: Taron Egerton »

‘True Conviction’ Tribeca Review: True-Crime Doc Takes Dark Twists

18 hours ago

One of the cardinal rules — and sometimes, biggest challenges — in nonfiction filmmaking is that when you set out to follow real people, you often don’t know where they’re going. Sometimes, real life will lead you in unexpected directions that can make for a great film; other times, it will stubbornly refuse to give you the satisfying ending that would make your movie soar. The filmmakers of “True Conviction,” which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival this week, definitely had to deal with some of the latter. If the movie is perhaps less satisfying because it denies us the. »

While 100 days is a small portion of a four-year term, many historians, cable news programs, political watchdogs — and. »
