Billy Corgan Pays Tribute to Ric Ocasek: ‘Gonna Miss You Forever’

Sienna Miller Talks Taking the Lead in 'American Woman'

Sienna Miller Talks Taking the Lead in 'American Woman'
Sienna Miller was honored at the Deauville Film Festival on Wednesday night, taking the festival's talent award for her role in the indie drama American Woman.

The actress said this film is already the “one she is most proud of," and that despite being a movie star for the past 15 years, American Woman feels like her first leading role. In both Foxcatcher and American Sniper, Miller played the wife of the male hero; even in the star-making Factory Girl, her Edie Sedgwick was an adjunct to Andy Warhol.

“In many cases, I still fantasize about going and retelling the entire ...

Toronto: Wavelengths Shorts – Lives of Performers

  • MUBI
The dominant theme with this selection of short films seems a bit off the mark since, as I’ve remarked elsewhere, this year’s selection has more narrative and narrative-adjacent works than I’ve noticed in past iterations. But it’s true, Wavelengths 4 does focus on aspects of performance, and this is the first time that overt humor has reared its head, which is something. In previous years I might have used this space to talk about the series as a whole, or make some kind of assessment about where the field looks like it may be going. But as someone who is now attempting (clunkily) to do programming myself, I will only say, it’s a hard job, and as always, Andréa Picard is to be congratulated for pulling it all together. Oh, I have included an extra review, of a Wavelengths short playing elsewhere in the festival. Enjoy.

Toronto Film Review: ‘Cunningham’

Toronto Film Review: ‘Cunningham’
Good nonfiction storytelling requires artistry beyond talking heads and archives, though creative vision sometimes feels purposely concealed or standardized in documentaries to prioritize substance over style. But here’s a dance documentary that splendidly flaunts its artistic point of view, and fittingly so. This is a good time to remember that nonfiction films can be theatrical experiences that demand to be seen on the largest screen possible.

Shot in glorious 3D that makes the technical mode feel indispensable, Kovgan’s ode to choreography master Merce Cunningham is sensational in every sense of the word. Renewing one’s appreciation of the many wonders of the human body and the space in which it fills and drifts, “Cunningham” celebrates all the things our joints and flexed muscles are capable of, as seen through the mind and poetic dances of an iconic creator.

Ryan Murphy revealed a number of new upcoming projects he has in the works for Netflix, including a series adaptation of “A Chorus Line” and a limited series biopic about the designer Halston starring Ewan McGregor.

He is also developing several documentary series, including one about a lesbian couple who came out in their 80s and another, a 10-part project about Andy Warhol. The new projects were announced in a Time cover story about Murphy on Tuesday.

In addition to his existing series at FX and Fox (“9-1-1” and the upcoming Rob Lowe-led spinoff “Lone Star”), Murphy is also set to launch two new projects at Netflix, the “Election”-esque high school dramedy “The Politician” and the “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” prequel “Ratched” starring Sarah Paulson.

On the film side, he is also set to direct an adaptation of “The Boys in the Band” with its original Broadway cast and produce an adaptation of the musical “The Prom” starring Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, James Corden, Ariana Grande, Awkwafina, Keegan-Michael Key and Andrew Rannells.

Joan Shelley on Recording in Iceland, Leonard Cohen’s Wisdom

Depending on how you do the math, Joan Shelley has made around 10 LPs with various collaborators, including the trio Maiden Radio. She was a shared secret until 2015, when she released the evanescent Over and Even under her own name, but her most recent LP — a self-titled set produced by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, with drum colors by Spencer Tweedy — spread the word of her talent out yonder. Her new record, Like the River Loves the Sea, one the year’s most beautiful, finds the Kentucky-rooted singer-songwriter ranging further afield. She recorded the songs in Reykjavik,

Hear David Bowie Reflect on Early Days in New ‘Finding Fame’ Doc Teaser
David Bowie examines his psyche in his formative years in a new teaser trailer for Showtime’s upcoming documentary on the artist, Finding Fame. “I’ve always been a very curious and enthusiastic person,” he says, as imagery of him in mime makeup from 1967’s The Mask and walking through the woods plays. “I’ve just had to accept that I was a person that had a very short attention span and would move from one thing to another quite rapidly and then I got bored with the other.”

Flashback: Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder Mash Up ‘Uptight’ and ‘Satisfaction’
In the spring of 1972, Stevie Wonder released Music of My Mind and the Rolling Stones put out Exile on Main Street. Both albums were instant hits, with the former’s reaching Number 21 on the Billboard 200 and Exile reaching Number One. So when the Stones recruited Wonder, then just 22, to open up their summer tour that year, it was an unstoppable combo that became even more exciting when Wonder joined the Stones at four dates for a medley of his 1966 hit “Uptight (Everything’s Alright)” and the Stones’ hit from the previous year,

From Milo Ventimiglia to Jared Harris, Depicting Real-Life Tragic Events Earn Emmy Acclaim

From Milo Ventimiglia to Jared Harris, Depicting Real-Life Tragic Events Earn Emmy Acclaim
Real-life tragedy figures heavily among the stories told by this year’s lead actor Emmy nominees, especially for actors seeking to capture characters based on real people.

Jharrel Jerome, for example, is nominated in the lead limited series/TV movie actor category for playing both the younger and older versions of Korey Wise in Netflix’s “When They See Us,” whose wrongful conviction as one of the Central Park Five led to years in prison.

Researching the role was difficult because, in trying to understand the differences between Wise before and after incarceration, Jerome didn’t have anything to reference about Wise as a young teenager. Thus, he says, his conversations with Wise were not much at all about “his tragedies. Instead, we talked about what he loves to do, who he loves.” That helped him come to understand the “16-year-old boy that’s still trapped inside of him. To

‘Ray & Liz’ Film Review: Richard Billingham Documents the Slow Disintegration of a Dysfunctional Family

‘Ray & Liz’ Film Review: Richard Billingham Documents the Slow Disintegration of a Dysfunctional Family
The first person we meet in “Ray & Liz” is elderly Ray (Patrick Romer). Alone in a tiny room, abandoned by his wife Liz (Deirdre Kelly), he has taken to his bed seemingly permanently, waking only long enough to drink as much as it takes to keep himself drunk. He keeps a photo of himself as a young man with his bride stuck to a mirror next to a religious pamphlet that delivers the only foreshadowing this film feels like giving: a Bible verse instructing children to “obey [their] parents in everything.”

Ray & Liz,” Richard Billingham’s debut feature, punctuates its main action with visits to this room, with the rest of the quietly downcast story taking place during the 1980s, as Ray and Liz descend into poverty, despair, and alcoholism in a council flat outside of Birmingham, England. Their children — Richard and his younger brother Jason — are along for the ride,
