Movie Poster of the Week: Anna Magnani in Movie Posters

21 May 2016 3:27 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Above: French grande for Volcano (William Dierterle, Italy, 1950). A few weeks ago, I featured the posters of Anna Karina; now it’s the turn of that other legendary Anna... La Magnani or “La Lupa”, the she-wolf, as she was known. Magnani is currently being fêted at Lincoln Center in an all-celluloid retrospective showing 24 of her films that runs through June 1 before traveling to Chicago, San Francisco, Houston and Columbus.Magnani became a star with her powerhouse performance in Rossellini’s Rome, Open City in 1945, and the indelible image of her chasing down the Nazi soldiers who have taken her resistance-hero husband, is one that seems to have informed her persona throughout her career. No sex-kitten, Magnani was the personification of the great actress, and in her posters she is almost always emoting. She is rarely shown smiling (look at her scowling at Ingrid Bergman—in real life she had good »

Interview: Agyness Deyn on Her Breakthrough in 'Sunset Song', and How Modeling Prepared Her for Film

13 May 2016 3:23 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jose here. Agyness Deyn doesn’t have a very long list of screen credits, she played Aphrodite in Clash of the Titans, narrated a Rihanna video, and appeared in Pusher. That will undoubtedly change once directors see her gorgeous work in Terence Davies’ Sunset Song where she plays Chris Guthrie, a Scottish farm girl trying to fend for herself in the years before Wwi. It’s a performance made of composed emotion, endless inner strength, and an otherworldly quality that makes one think of great work by Olivia de Havilland and Ingrid Bergman.

Many people will know Ms. Deyn from her work as a model, back in the mid-aughts there wasn’t an issue of Vogue where she didn’t appear. With her pixie cut, effortless chic and strong personality she brought a “punk/rock” edge to modeling. Since 2012, she’s been focusing her attention on film and Sunset Song is her first leading role. »

A Kiss Before Dying

Robert Wagner as a social climbing psycho killer? I knew it! 'Mr. CinemaScope Smile' grins only once or twice in this movie, and then only to fool an unsuspecting woman. A great cast brings tension to Ira Levin's outrageous tale of murder. Joanne Woodward has a powerful role, but my heartthrob this time out is lovely Virginia Leith.

The Forgotten: Brunello Rondi's "Il demonio" (1963)

27 April 2016 5:51 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Daliah Lavi had an odd career, when you think about it: ballet student, German pop singer, Israeli soldier and international film star, maybe best known for Casino Royale (the silly one). In 1963 she got the living crap beat out of her in two films, Mario Bava's The Whip and the Body, a ripe slice of S&M gothic horror with Christopher Lee as a flagellating phantom (maybe), and Brunello Rondi's Il demonio (The Demon), which is an even weirder piece of work.Rondi also had an odd career: an intellectual who provided regular screenwriting services for Fellini (La dolce vita, 8 1/2, Satyricon), his directing career slid rapidly into exploitation movies, crime to gialli to porno, which he appears to have attempted to imbue with some social commentary, with who knows what success? Il demonio is the first of his directorial efforts I've seen.Rondi plunges us into a strange world, »

Despite The Falling Snow review

18 April 2016 7:11 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Rebecca Ferguson stars in Despite The Falling Snow, and she's the best thing about the movie...

The main draw of Despite The Falling Snow is a dual performance by Rebecca Ferguson, who shot this in between her Emmy-nominated work on The White Queen and her memorable breakthrough role in last year's Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation. Adapted by writer-director Sharim Sharif from her own novel, this romantic thriller casts Ferguson as two women separated by time but connected by blood and a sequence of events that occurred in Moscow at the height of the Cold War.

In 1992, an American artist called Lauren (Ferguson) is curious as to why her weary uncle Sacha (Charles Dance) is so cagey about their family's history and the circumstances of his defection from Russia thirty years prior. In particular, she's beguiled by her aunt Katya (also Ferguson), of whom she is the spitting image. »

[Review] Insiang

8 April 2016 10:29 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If, within art cinema, there comes the instant gravitation to less the film than the name — the all-powerful auteur that supposedly doesn’t have to bow down to corporate masters — then even with a film as immediately striking as 1976’s Insiang, we begin with its author, Lino Brocka. Even in a life cut tragically short, he left enough of a mark to still be considered the Philippines’ greatest filmmaker, amongst his laurels being the nation’s first director to play in competition at Cannes. A particular association made with him was an outspoken criticism of the Philippines’ dictator-in-chief, Ferdinand Marcos.

But carrying that expectation over to Insiang, even without one mention of Marcos’ name throughout the film, the presence of both a fundamentally rotten authority and people left to fend for themselves in poverty leans a viewer, even the uninformed, towards assuming a greater institutional critique. Yet to quickly sum »

That scarlet woman Ingrid is back from exile, and hypocritical Hollywood is not complaining -- Anatole Litvak and Arthur Laurents make an intriguing romantic-psychological mystery of a bogus Romanoff Duchess who surfaces in 1928 Paris to claim the crown fortune. Good roles for Yul Brynner and Helen Hayes as well. It's a strange intersection of scandal, history and swindlers that may have found the real item... and maybe not.

Cannes’ Unveils Official Poster, With Nod to Jean-Luc Godard

21 March 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris — The Cannes Film Festival is replacing stars with stairs on the official poster for its 69th edition.

In recent years, the event has selected iconic shots of classic film actors — Marilyn Monroe, Paul Newman, Marcello Mastroianni, Ingrid Bergman — to grace its posters. This year, however, it is a film still, selected from Jean-Luc Godard’s 1963 “Contempt,” that will set the tone for this year’s festival.

Tinted a radiant yellow-gold, the image depicts a man climbing the side of the Casa Malaparte — a modernist mansion overlooking the sea on the far east side of the Isle of Capri, accessible only to dreamers and cinemagoers.

Though we cannot make out the man’s face, the staircase itself draws the eye — and should look especially striking blown up to enormous dimensions and suspended over the red carpet entry to the Palais des Festivals, as in 1997, when a trompe l’oeil banner extended the entry staircase heavenward. »

Cannes 2016 poster shows 'Contempt'

21 March 2016 5:11 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

This year’s Cannes Film Festival poster uses stills from Jean-Luc Godard’s 1963 film.

Less than a month before the full line-up is revealed, the poster for the 69th Cannes Film Festival (May 11-22) has been unfurled.

The poster, which will be emblazoned across the Palais and displayed throughout Cannes, usually features a close up of a film star and in recent years has featured Ingrid Bergman, Marcello Mastroianni and Paul Newman.

This year, the festival has used (remastered) stills from Jean-Luc Godard’s 1963 film, Contempt (Le Mépris), depicting a man (French actor/director Michel Piccoli) ascending steps against a backdrop of the Mediterranean sea.

The poster was designed by Hervé Chigioni, who has overseen the festival’s posters since 2014, and his graphic designer Gilles Frappier.

Contempt starred Michel Piccoli and Brigitte Bardot alongside legendary director Fritz Land and Jack Palance. It is a symbolic choice for the poster as the film is about the making of a film »

The 25 greatest Oscar speeches

We're just a week away from another gold-tinged year of speeches, upsets, and snubs. After all the hype, what ends up mattering about the Oscars? I'd argue it's the speeches, and that's why we're picking the 25 best acceptance speeches ever -- by actors only. Sorry, but glamor is a key element in any Oscar moment and I don't have time to remember if the guy who adapted The Last Emperor thanked his mom.  25. Dustin Hoffman, Kramer vs. Kramer Dustin Hoffman's seriousness initially seems worrisome, but his mix of sarcasm and sincerity is right for the ceremony.  24. Marion Cotillard, La Vie en Rose Cotillard's tearful speech makes you realize how rare it is than an Oscar recipient is surprised to win. As Cotillard scrambles to make sense of the honor, she comes up with an ebullient finale: "Thank you, life! Thank you, love! It is -- there are some angels in this city. »

These 12 Actors Hold the Record for Most Oscar Noms

17 February 2016 8:00 AM, PST | | See recent Backstage news »

Oscar nominations spawned new records for some of Hollywood’s most decorated actors. Cate Blanchett and Kate Winslet both received their seventh nominations, joining an exclusive club that includes Ingrid Bergman, Richard Burton, Judi Dench, Robert De Niro, Robert Duvall, Jane Fonda, Greer Garson, and Dustin Hoffman; every actor except Burton is an Oscar winner. Sylvester Stallone’s nomination for his performance as Rocky Balboa in “Creed” comes 39 years after originating the role in “Rocky.” This breaks Paul Newman’s 25-year record set for his portrayal of “Fast Eddie” Felson in 1961’s “The Hustler” and then again in 1986’s “The Color of Money.” The latter performance landed the actor an Oscar. Meanwhile, at 25, Jennifer Lawrence becomes the youngest person to receive four acting nominations. The following 12 actors are currently Oscar’s record-holders for receiving the most nominations.

Berlin: Benedict Cumberbatch to Narrate Doc ‘Naples ’44’ (Exclusive)

12 February 2016 7:15 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Benedict Cumberbatch has been recruited as voice talent to narrate high-profile docu “Naples ’44” by Italian director Francesco Patierno, based on the eponymous diary by British travel writer Norman Lewis about his experience as a British intelligence officer in the southern Italian port city following its liberation from Nazi forces.

Cumberbatch is voicing Lewis who wrote the memoir while he was a sergeant in the Field Security Service of the British Army Intelligence Corps in southern Italy from September 1943 to October 1944. In his widely sold book he recorded the desperate lives of Neapolitan civilians who survived by relying on all types of subterfuges, and also prostitution, thievery, and beliefs in miracles and cures.

Patierno, who is known for gritty drama “Pater Familias” and docu “The War of the Volcanoes” about how Roberto Rossellini left Anna Magnani for Ingrid Bergman, is directing “Naples” using both archive and feature film footage, accompanied by Cumberbatch’s narration. »
