Elliott Gould (I) - News Poster


The Silent Partner

The absolute best small scale ‘perfect crime’ thriller has nail-biting suspense, humor, sexy scenes, a shocking violent scene and apparently a terrific collaboration between director Daryl Duke and writer Curtis Hanson. Elliott Gould and Christopher Plummer give unique, superb performances, and Susannah York is enticing as well. It’s not neo-noir, it’s better than neo-noir. With a very early John Candy performance, too.

‘Avengers: Endgame’ cast boasts Oscar winners and nominees galore with 18 — but is it the most ever? Not quite!

‘Avengers: Endgame’ cast boasts Oscar winners and nominees galore with 18 — but is it the most ever? Not quite!
Avengers: Endgame” might have surpassed 2009’s “Avatar” when it comes to its domestic box-office — besting James Cameron’s sci-fi fantasy’s $750 million handily by taking in $816 million since its opening on April 26. But it is still a far cry from 2015’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” still the champ with $937 million in domestic ticket sales.

But on social media, there has been some discussion beyond the big bucks about whether “Endgame” with its multitudes of Marvel-ous superhero actors might have the most Oscar winners and nominees ever for a cast of a feature film. I know there is an ongoing thread in the forums about just this topic with various permutations on who counts or not. But for my purposes, actors who won or were nominated in categories other than acting do not qualify. Same with honorary trophies.

By that measure, I count seven winners among the names: Brie Larson,

Californoir: Close-Up on "Under the Silver Lake"

  • MUBI
David Robert Mitchell's Under the Silver Lake (2018) is having its exclusive online premiere on Mubi in the United Kingdom. It is showing from March 15 - April 13, 2019.I first saw Under the Silver Lake at its late-night Cannes Film Festival premiere, thinking that would be the logical time for it: sight unseen, the third feature from David Robert Mitchell's radiated the sexy, angular strangeness of a midnight movie in the making. Strange it is, though in a louche, breezy way; it's the stuff of inebriated daydreams rather than outright nightmares. It's as much a midday trip as it is a midnight one: as I emerged from the inappropriately tuxedoed premiere for this rumpled, T-shirted detective odyssey, the film's hazy, zonked afterglow was in a separate dimension from the crisp, inky atmosphere of the Côte d'Azur after dark. Suddenly, the sky outside the Cannes Palais looked wrong: all deep-navy velvet where

Film Review: ‘Finding Steve McQueen’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Finding Steve McQueen’
Finding Steve McQueen” is a ramshackle indie heist drama that has a little bit (but not much) to do with Steve McQueen. The film’s central figure, a green-behind-the-ears thief named Harry Barber (Travis Fimmel), idolizes the squinty star of “Bullitt,” for all the reasons one might have back in 1972, when most of the movie is set. McQueen was then at the height of his popularity, but his star cachet, going back to films like “The Great Escape” and “The Cincinnati Kid,” predated the counterculture, and that was the mark of his mystique. In a New Hollywood overrun with shaggy idols like Warren Beatty and Elliott Gould, McQueen, with his baby-faced scowl, was the last neo-’50s maverick romantic stud, a guy too square to be hip and, for that reason, too hip to be square.

Bullitt,” the movie that launched a thousand car chases, was the rubber-meets-the-road apex of the McQueen swagger,

‘Avengers’ crew to the rescue as the Oscar telecast will likely go hostless for the first time since 1990

‘Avengers’ crew to the rescue as the Oscar telecast will likely go hostless for the first time since 1990
Now that comic actor Kevin Hart has adamantly just said no to overseeing the Oscars ceremony that will air on ABC on February 24 after being called out for past homophobic tweets, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is recruiting presenters from the Marvel Comic Universe to bring some mainstream muscle to the show. Since Disney owns both Marvel and ABC, it makes sense that it would summon the blockbuster might of its most popular franchises. After last year’s record low ratings for the annual parade of glitz and glamour, the three-hour-plus production could use some pow.

The superhero squad has assembled as presenters before on the then-Kodak Theatre stage after 2012’s “Avengers” became the year’s No. 1 grossing blockbuster. Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) and Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) all gathered onstage. Missing were

Why did the 1990 Oscars go back to having a host? Blame Snow White!

Why did the 1990 Oscars go back to having a host? Blame Snow White!
Ok, I misspoke. Yes, there was a calamity of sorts the last time that Oscar decided to ditch having at least one official host.

As I was writing about the possibility that the Academy Awards show might do away with having a host after the Kevin Hart debacle, I looked up if the star-filled event ever went free-form without an anchor since it began airing on TV. I noted there were four times when there wasn’t a true host and assumed that there were no ill effects afterwards.

See No host with the most? Word is that the Oscars are considering to go emcee-less after Hart failure

Well, I now must admit I was wrong. First, some history:
