Could ‘Birdman’ Join These 10 Best Picture Nominees About Show Business?

19 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Hollywood films portraying the world — including the troubled side — of show business have garnered best picture nominations for years. Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) could be a serious Oscar contender and features Michael Keaton as a former film star known for his portrayal of a superhero named Birdman. He attempts to renew his career by writing, directing and performing in a Broadway play. The film hit theaters Friday. Here are ten best picture Oscar-nominated films about show business (in chronological order):

1. The Red Shoes (1948)

The film is a tragic story about a young ballet dancer (Moira Shearer) who is forced to choose between her future dance career and the composer she falls in love with. The film was nominated for five Oscars and won two.

2. All About Eve (1950)

Anne Baxter stars as Eve, an aspiring, conniving actress who »

The Past, Present, and Future of Real-Time Films Part One

17 October 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

What do film directors Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, Agnès Varda, Robert Wise, Fred Zinnemann, Luis Buñuel, Alain Resnais, Roman Polanski, Sidney Lumet, Robert Altman, Louis Malle, Richard Linklater, Tom Tykwer, Alexander Sokurov, Paul Greengrass, Song Il-Gon, Alfonso Cuarón, and Alejandro Iñárritu have in common? More specifically, what type of film have they directed, setting them apart from fewer than 50 of their filmmaking peers? Sorry, “comedy” or “drama” isn’t right. If you’ve looked at this article’s headline, you’ve probably already guessed that the answer is that they’ve all made “real-time” films, or films that seemed to take about as long as their running time.

The real-time film has long been a sub-genre without much critical attention, but the time of the real-time film has come. Cuarón’s Gravity (2013), which was shot and edited so as to seem like a real-time film, floated away with the most 2014 Oscars, »

Brian de Palma’s Passion: Costume as Contemporary Hitchcock

16 October 2014 8:36 AM, PDT | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

Director Brian De Palma has made movies heavily influenced by Alfred Hitchcock before, but Passion (2012) is the first one whose characters look like they stepped out of one of Hitchcock’s classic films.

Karen Muller-Serreau’s bold and colourful costumes communicate the characters’ hidden desires and make watching Passion a sensory experience. This melodrama centres on two ad executives, Isabelle (Noomi Rapace) and her boss Christine (Rachel McAdams), who have a deadline to come up with an ad campaign for a new smartphone. In her sleep, Isabelle thinks of a great idea.

Dirk (Paul Anderson) in typical pinstriped suit with Isabelle (Noomi Rapace) in even more typical black.

The two other principal characters are Isabelle’s assistant Dani (Karoline Herfurth) and Christine’s boyfriend Dirk (Paul Anderson) who get tangled in the twists and turns of Christine and Isabelle’s relationship. Dani is an angel-faced redhead who is in unrequited love with her boss Isabelle, »

DVD Review: 'Grace of Monaco'

14 October 2014 1:57 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆Olivier Dahan's Grace of Monaco (2014), about the marriage of Hollywood film star Grace Kelly (Nicole Kidman) and Prince Rainier (Tim Roth) is beautifully shot but lacks depth and tension. When Grace married Prince Rainer III of Monaco in 1956 it was like a fairy tale come true: iconic beauty gets her prince. But Grace sacrificed a successful career for her marriage and Dahan's film opens six years later when the cracks have begun to show. Grace finds it lonely bringing up two small children, while her husband is increasingly absent from the palace; embroiled in a row with France and dealing with affairs of state. So when Alfred Hitchcock (Roger Ashton-Griffiths) turns up to offer her a part in Marnie, she's sorely tempted.

Remembering Superman Reeve Ten Years After His Death

10 October 2014 5:50 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Christopher Reeve: 'Superman' and his movies (photo: Christopher Reeve in 'Superman' 1978) Christopher Reeve, Superman in four movies from 1978 to 1987, died ten years ago today. In 1995, while taking part in a cross-country horse race in Culpeper, Virginia, Reeve was thrown off his horse, hitting his head on the top rail of a jump; the near-fatal accident left him paralyzed from the neck down. He ultimately succumbed to heart failure at age 52 on October 10, 2004. Long before he was cast as Superman aka Clark Kent, the Manhattan-born (as Christopher D'Olier Reeve on September 25, 1952), Cornell University and Juillard School for Drama alumnus was an ambitious young actor whose theatrical apprenticeship included, while still a teenager, some time as an observer at London's Old Vic and Paris' Comédie Française. At age 23, he landed his first Broadway role in a production of Enid Bagnold's A Matter of Gravity, starring Katharine Hepburn. »

How Princess Grace Made Childhood 'Not Palace-y' for Her Children

2 October 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Grace Kelly was the ultimate Hitchcock blonde: cool, elegant and mysterious. But the Rear Window star, who left Hollywood for good after marrying Monaco's Prince Rainier III in 1956, was also a "hands-on mom," her only son, Prince Albert, tells People in an exclusive interview. Beneath his mother's white-gloved glamour was a parent who brought her kids (Albert and his sisters, Caroline and Stephanie) to the Jersey Shore, wore turbans to "hide a bad hair day," and encouraged party guests to plunge into the palace pool after a private reception for the Monte Carlo ballet. (She jumped in after Rudolf Nureyev. »

Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are 'Bourne' again. Are they Hollywood's top actor/director pair?

17 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

Hitchcock Dials it up

10 September 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Shooting in 3D wasn’t Alfred Hitchcock’s choice. But Warner Brothers, the studio that was producing his 1954 pic Dial M for Murder, insisted he use the new technology for the film.

The movie stars Ray Milland as Tony Wendice, a former tennis pro who arranges for an old school chum to break into his flat and murder his wealthy wife Margo (Grace Kelly) so he can claim the inheritance. Tony’s “perfect crime” is thwarted when Margo fights back and kills the intruder.

The challenge for Hitchcock was incorporating the technology in a film that’s very talky — Dial M for Murder was originally written as a play — and to his credit he does so wisely, albeit sparingly, at just the right moments.

Yet Hitchcock’s greatest feat lies in the way in which he builds suspense — glorious tracking shots, a claustrophobic setting and quick cuts to characters looking guilty/suspicious. »

Mel Brooks Riffs on ‘Young Frankenstein,’ Laddie and the Biz

9 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The four guys sitting around the lunch table in Beverly Hills have been business associates and friends for decades.

Many decades.

This includes the decade known as the ’70s, when lunchee Mel Brooks directed and co-wrote “Young Frankenstein” (1974) for fellow lunchees, former Fox studio chief Alan Ladd Jr. and the film’s producer, Michael Gruskoff, as well as longtime Ladd associate Jay Kanter, who once repped the likes of Marlon Brando, Grace Kelly and Marilyn Monroe.

But this is clearly Brooks’ show, a point he reinforces when Gruskoff tries to tell their guest about the day the two of them and star Gene Wilder pitched the “Young Frankenstein” project to the top brass at Columbia Pictures.

Gruskoff may have gotten through the first word of the first sentence but he quickly and wisely lets Brooks finish: “Let Me Tell The Story I Can Tell It Better Than You.”

Robin Wright, as Robin Wright, Seizes a Mad Future in The Congress

2 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

After The Princess Bride made Robin Wright a star, she shocked Hollywood by saying no. No to The Firm and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. No to Jurassic Park, Dirty Dancing, Born on the Fourth of July, and Batman Forever. She even said no to the cover of Vanity Fair.

It's startling, then, that she's said yes to Ari Folman's (Waltz With Bashir) The Congress, an overeaching, half-animated, sci-fi cartoon that keeps a foot in reality long enough to accuse her — yes, Robin Wright herself — of sabotaging her career. Robin Wright plays Robin Wright, an actress and single mother of two, who could have been this generation's Grace Kelly if she hadn't made all the wrong moves. Wright hasn't headlined »
