Review: Robert Altman's "The Gingerbread Man" (1998); Kino Lorber Blu-ray Release

  • CinemaRetro
“Altman Meets Grisham”

By Raymond Benson

Eccentric, quirky, and often brilliant director Robert Altman had a hit-and-miss career spanning six decades. After a mostly spectacular run of cutting-edge comedies and dramas in the 1970s, Altman’s pictures in the 1980s faltered. He lost some of the value in his stock that he had gained after such hits as M*A*S*H and Nashville. However, he had a strong come-back in the 1990s with The Player and Short Cuts, and he made a few more interesting movies in the last ten years of his life.

One of these was The Gingerbread Man, based on an original story by legal-thriller author John Grisham. Apparently, Grisham had also tried his hand at the screenplay, too, and successfully sold it. Altman, however, rewrote it himself, and then Al Hayes (credited for the film’s screenplay) finished it. Curiously, the picture is more of

Soldier, vampire, motel manager … painter? What does Willem Dafoe have to do to win an Oscar?

Soldier, vampire, motel manager … painter? What does Willem Dafoe have to do to win an Oscar?
When you see “At Eternity’s Gate,” which opens Nov. 16, sit back and sink into Willem Dafoe’s remarkable performance as the Dutch post-impressionist painter Vincent Van Gogh. This is not Kirk Douglas in 1956’s “Lust for Life” or last year’s animated “Loving Vincent.” Fimmaker Julian Schnabel, an artist himself who previously cast the actor in 1996’s “Basquiat” and 2010’s “Miral,” places his star and us in the middle of the rustic French countryside with paint, brush and easel. At one point, Dafoe covers his face with dirt, becoming one with the outdoors. We see nature through his gaze, as he thickly slathers paint on his canvas to create a visceral work of art.

At 63, Dafoe is far older than the tortured Vincent, who died from suicide at 37. But, at some point, you will think that with his chiseled cheekbones and perceptive eyes, “Of course, he should have embodied this misunderstood genius long ago.

18 Dramatic Championship Sports Movie Moments: From ‘Rocky’ to ‘Remember the Titans’ (Photos)

  • The Wrap
The World Series is here again, and if it’s anything like the Cubs’ curse-breaking 2016 victory or the Astros and Dodgers’ seven-game barnburner in 2017, it might end up becoming the basis for a movie or documentary like the ones on our list. Whether it’s the thrill of victory or the agony of defeat, TheWrap recaps the biggest moments in these sports classics.

The Pride of the Yankees” (1942)

This beautifully dramatized moment of sports history, as wonderfully monologued by Gary Cooper, helped to immortalize the already infamous “Luckiest man” speech by Lou Gehrig.

Rocky” (1976)

In the ultimate underdog story, newcomer Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) gets a shot at the world heavyweight title against champ Apollo Creed. Rocky proves he has the goods, going the entire 15 rounds against Creed, but loses in a split decision. Rocky would get a rematch though and win the title in “Rocky II”.

American Dresser – Review

Review by Matthew Lowery

In 1986, Vietnam veteran turned filmmaker Oliver Stone brought us the war film Platoon based on his wartime experiences. Among its cast was Tom Berenger as Sgt. Barnes, who has been driven crazy from the shellshock of the conflict. In addition to Charlie Sheen and Willem Dafoe, the film also featured early appearances from Johnny Depp and Keith David. Even 30 plus years after release, the film still holds up and is a classic Vietnam war film. I bring this up because American Dresser features both Berenger and David who happen to have served in Vietnam. I’m not entirely sure if this was just a coincidence, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was somewhat intentional. Also, given that this film concerns two guys driving through the continental Us on motorcycles, it feels like Easy Rider. Honestly, the fact that this reminded me of better movies is not promising.

Emmy episode analysis: Michael Stuhlbarg (‘The Looming Tower’) deals with the aftermath of tragedy on ‘9/11’
Michael Stuhlbarg’s strong year isn’t over yet. Late in 2017 he appeared in three films that earned Oscar nominations for Best Picture: “Call Me by Your Name,” “The Post” and the ultimate winner “The Shape of Water.” Despite being a triple threat, Stuhlbarg wasn’t nominated for an Oscar himself, but now he’s nominated at the Emmys for Best Movie/Mini Supporting Actor for the Hulu miniseries “The Looming Tower.” Stuhlbarg plays Richard Clarke, the real-life former chief counter-terrorism advisor on the National Security Council. He has submitted the final installment of the series, “9/11,” to Emmy voters for consideration.

The episode begins with Clarke giving his opening statement before the 9/11 Commission in which he apologized to the families of 9/11 victims and famously proclaimed, “Your government failed you.” We then flash back to Clarke at the White House, refusing to leave even though the building is being evacuated in
