Korean Actor Song Kang-ho is First Asian Honored With Locarno Excellence Award
The Locarno Film Festival will pay tribute to leading South Korean actor Song Kang-ho, marking the first time this prestigious prize has gone to an Asian film personality.

Song, 52, who made his big screen debut at 29 in Hong Sang-soo’s edgy “The Day a Pig Fell into the Well” (1996), has since “never stopped experimenting,” said the Swiss fest dedicated to indie cinema in a statement.

The fest also underlined the versatile talent’s masterful turns in works by South Korean filmmakers such as Bong Joon-ho, Hong Sang-soo, Jee- woon Kim and Park Chan-wook that have propelled him to top star status at home and made him an international name.

His standout roles include turns in big-budget blockbuster “Shiri” (1999) directed by Kang Je-gyu; Kim Jee-woon’s wrestling comedy “The Foul King” (2000); Park Chan-wook’s “Joint Security Area” (2000); “Sympathy for Mr Vengeance” (2002) and “Thirst” (2009), Bong Joon-ho’s “Memories of Murder” (2003) and “Snowpiercer

Sharon Stone, Marilyn Manson to Appear in Paolo Sorrentino’s ‘The New Pope’ (Exclusive)
HBO has released images of provocative rocker Marilyn Manson and actress Sharon Stone appearing in “The New Pope,” Paolo Sorrentino’s follow-up to his previous series “The Young Pope.”

Both Manson and Stone are known to have been big fans of both “The Young Pope” and director Sorrentino. No details of their roles are being divulged. The photo of Manson suggests that the rocker will be playing a character not too different from his regular public persona. Both he and Stone are working with Sorrentino for the first time.

The official images come after HBO in January released a first-look image of John Malkovich and Jude Law, who played the pope in the previous series, both wearing papal vestments. More recently, leaked images of Jude Law on set in a “papal” white Speedo bathing suit caused a big stir on social media in Italy.

Extremely Wicked and the Role of Violence in Cinema

Tony Sokol May 16, 2019

Joe Berlinger speaks about the human story behind his Ted Bundy feature Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile.

Ted Bundy was 32­ years ­old when he was sentenced to death in 1979 for the brutal murders of two Florida State Chi Omega sorority sisters, Margaret Bowman and Lisa Levy, as well as three attempted murder charges for Kathy Kleiner, Karen Chandler, and Cheryl Thomas. The trial marked the first time in American history cameras were allowed in a courtroom, and Bundy used that to orchestrate a media circus. Serving as his own counsel, Bundy charmed veteran judge Edward D. Cowart, who called the defendant “a bright young man” with the makings of “a good lawyer.” The judge changed his tune on sentencing, classifying Bundy's crimes as "extremely wicked, shockingly evil, and vile."

Director Joe Berlinger borrowed that classification for Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, which we caught up

Stars: Lily Collins, Zac Efron, Angela Sarafyan, James Hetfield, Grace Victoria Cox, Kaya Scodelario, Haley Joel Osment, Terry Kinney, Ryan Wesley Gilreath, Richard K. Jones, Alan B. Jones, Jeffrey Donovan, John Malkovich | Written by Michael Werwie | Directed by Joe Berlinger

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile is directed by Joe Berlinger and is his second Ted Bundy narrative to drop on Netflix after his show Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes premiered a few months ago. Berlinger’s biopic of the man himself stars none other than Zac Efron as serial mass murderer Ted Bundy and follows his simplistic home life with girlfriend Liz Kendall intertwined with his capture, and eventual trial on the grounds of his monstrously vicious crimes. Efron puts in a darkly inhabited turn with stellar craftsmanship as Bundy, however, the film itself is brutally underwhelming with significantly hollow depth and is questionably one-sided in

'Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile' Team on How Netflix's Ted Bundy Biopic Aims to Show a Different Perspective
[This story contains mild spoilers.]

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile is about notorious serial killer Ted Bundy. But the Netflix film, starring Zac Efton as Bundy, doesn't recreate the gruesome killings. For those disturbing details, viewers would have to watch director Joe Berlinger's other recent Netflix project, the true-crime doc Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes.

Instead, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile — which takes its name from the infamous words spoken by trail judge Edward Cowart (played by John Malkovich in the film) during Bundy's death sentencing — flips the perspective to show Bundy ...

Ted Bundy Acted as His Own Lawyer, but That Doesn’t Mean He Had a Law Degree

Ted Bundy Acted as His Own Lawyer, but That Doesn’t Mean He Had a Law Degree
Ted Bundy had charm, handsome looks, and the smarts to make himself seem like he was anyone except who he truly was - a deranged serial killer. Zac Efron takes on that persona as he plays Bundy in the Netflix film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile. The murderer, who never made it past the age of 42, was watched on television for many reasons, including that he caused quite a spectacle as he acted as his own lawyer.

Bundy wasn't a stranger to the whole attorney thing. He graduated with a degree in psychology from the University of Washington in 1972. He enrolled in law school at the University of Puget Sound but moved on to the University of Utah in 1974. To this day, however, it remains unclear if he ever earned his law degree. But records suggests that he did not.

Bundy wanted to be an active part of his own defense,

While this is true, some of the more outlandish elements of the serial killer's onscreen trial are 100 percent true to real life. Yes, his teeth played a huge part in his conviction.

'Extremely Wicked...': Biopic gets it right

In a very strange, stirring and refreshing departure from convention, director Joe Berlinger's saga of real-life American serial killer Ted Bundy gets it right. Bundy, played with disquieting charm by Zac Efron, reportedly killed over 30 women during the 1960s and 1970s until he was finally sentenced to death in Florida by a judge (played with unostentatious brilliance by John Malkovich) who describes Bundy in the words that form the title of this engaging and disturbing film.

But the film on Bundy's vile life doesn't get gruesome on us. Until the final blow in the closing moments when for the first time we see the charming Bundy doing not-so-charming things to a woman. We just hear about Bundy being the prime suspect in countless killings across the Us. On screen, we see this enormously likable ladies man.

There is the love of Bundy's life Liz, played with a tragic inevitability by Lily Collins.
