Cannes 2017: The 10 Best Movies of This Year’s Festival

10 hours ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

You know you’re experiencing a strong year at the Cannes Film Festival when everyone has a different favorite movie. For some critics and journalists, the best was saved for the end, with Lynne Ramsay’s post-modern detective story “You Were Never Really Here” standing out in the competition; for others, the competition peaked early with Andrey Zyvagintsev’s kidnapping drama “Loveless.” And some people looked far beyond the competition for festival highlights, singling out selections from Un Certain Regard, Directors’ Fortnight and Critics Week, not to mention the out of competition screenings that were part of the Official Selection.

Cannes Review: ‘Promised Land’ Links the Death of the American Dream with Elvis Presley

22 May 2017 6:32 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

A title like Promised Land can be appreciated for its duality: primarily meaning a land of promise but also, in another sense, a land that was promised. We’re talking about the United States of course, or rather filmmaker Eugene Jarecki is in his latest documentary. It’s an abstract road movie, fueled on disillusionment and rock and roll, and one that attempts the quite ambitious task of sketching out a narrative line to link the rise and decline of the nation with the rise and decline of Elvis Presley. If Jarecki struggles a little with this alchemy at times it is because Promised Land is essentially three movies in one: a detailed account of the King’s career; a loose account of the last 80 years of American politics; and a musical performance film. It can be a little jarring to shift between those gears but the director has form »

Twin Peaks Review: Woeful Revival Plays Like Fire Walk — No Run — Away

21 May 2017 7:51 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The first season of Twin Peaks remains one of the most satisfying viewing experiences of my life. When the 90-minute pilot debuted on ABC on April 8, 1990, just two months shy of my high school graduation, I was instantly slayed. It was like the TV gods took all of my favorite things — a compelling, suspenseful murder mystery, mountain-high emotional stakes, rich characters, measured quirkiness — and rolled them into one series.

‘Promised Land’ Review: Eugene Jarecki’s Brilliant Documentary Uses Elvis Presley To Explain Donald Trump — Cannes 2017

20 May 2017 12:43 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A documentary as sprawling and brilliant and flawed as the country it traverses, Eugene Jarecki’s “The Promised Land” is a fascinatingly overstuffed portrait of America in decline. In the process, it’s also: a biography of the 20th century’s most famous musician,; a story about how a man became king of a democratic nation; a nuanced analysis of cultural appropriation in a multi-racial society; a southern-fried rock n’ roll performance piece; a horrifyingly sober look at the rise of Donald Trump; a closed-casket funeral service for The American Dream; the best recent film about how the hell we got here; and more. So much more.

It’s the latest project from a filmmaker who has always been obsessed with the forces that fuel America (watch 2005’s “Why We Fight” for a perpetually relevant dissection of the military-industrial complex) and who always returns to the same one: Money.

'Promised Land': Film Review | Cannes 2017

20 May 2017 9:48 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Director Eugene Jarecki has built a well-deserved reputation for impeccably crafted, scrupulous researched and, above all, concisely argued and structured left-leaning documentaries, among them The Trials of Henry Kissinger, Why We Fight and The House I Live In. Sadly, although his latest, Promised Land, may be his most broadly appealing film so far, it’s arguably his messiest and least intellectually satisfying work. A road trip across America in a 1963 silver Rolls Royce that belonged to Elvis Presley, this admittedly often entertaining ramble round Elvis' life and career unfolds during the 2016 U.S. Presidential election campaign, prompting musings from Jarecki »

‘Promised Land’ Cannes Review: Elvis Presley, Meet Donald Trump

20 May 2017 7:58 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

We all know the story of that time Elvis Presley showed up unannounced at the White House gates and met Richard Nixon. In “Promised Land,” director Eugene Jarecki introduces Elvis to Donald Trump. He does so metaphorically, of course, telling the story of Elvis but explicitly tying it to the state of the country and the rise of Trump, who one person in the film compares to “the fat Elvis.” “Promised Land” is that kind of movie – big, bold and overreaching, in love with but also skeptical of its own central metaphor of Elvis’ career as a version of America’s. »

Variety Critics Share Their Cannes Cinematic Wish Lists

16 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Variety‘s chief film critics Peter Debruge and Owen Gleiberman look ahead at the Cannes festival lineup and tell us what they really want to see when the festival kicks off May 17.

Peter Debruge’s Picks

The Beguiled

It’s not like the world was asking for a remake of the 1971 Clint Eastwood classic, based on the Thomas Cullinan novel about a wounded Union soldier who bewitches an entire boarding school of lonely Confederate ladies — although now that it exists, consider me intrigued. Certainly, we can expect Sofia Coppola to repair the gender balance, which is the most backwards thing about director Don Siegel’s otherwise intoxicating testosterone-fueled fantasy.

The Florida Project

It’s about time Cannes took note of one of America’s most exciting indie voices, inviting “Tangerine” director Sean Baker into the fold. Apart from a general fascination with strange contemporary subcultures, and a capacity to translate »

21 Interesting Facts about Elvis Presley

If you’re one of those super duper insane Elvis Presley fans then my guess would be that you know nearly all of the information that’s laid out in the gallery below.  However, if you’re like me you know that Elvis was huge.  He’s considered one of the biggest pioneers and influences of rock and roll.   He died way too young.  He was obese in the later years of his life.   He ain’t nothing but a hound dog, etc etc.  Outside of the “common knowledge” pool, there’s plenty about Elvis Presley that I, and probably you, never knew.

Cmt Hopes to Build on ‘Nashville’ Success in TV Upfront

3 May 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Cmt wants to use the music drama “Nashville” to get itself on the map close to Madison Avenue.

The Viacom-owned cable network has seen year-over-year growth in the audiences advertisers covet – viewers between the ages of 18 and 49 – and the network’s executive vice president of development, Jayson Dinsmore, wants to court more people like them. Since Cmt picked up the fifth season of “Nashville” after ABC canceled it, executives saw an incredible rush of new viewers, and fortunately, they liked what they saw,” said Dinsmore. “We are attracting fans with many other interests, empowering us to broaden the aperture while still staying true to our musical roots.”

Music remains a bedrock element of the network, but its current approach shows what can happen when network executives roll out a slightly different tune. Once known as the home of the bawdy reality series “Party Down South,” Cmt has in recent months made a bid to play to a »
