The Secret Agent review – worryingly one-dimensional

17 July 2016 11:02 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

So much is lost from Conrad’s strange, complex and deeply ironic novel. This adaptation reduces it to a psychological thriller – and proves the curse of TV

It is a brave screenwriter who takes on Joseph Conrad’s The Secret Agent (BBC1, Sunday), which film critic Roger Ebert called “perhaps the least filmable novel he ever wrote”. Ebert made that remark in a review – a fairly devastating one accompanied by the dreaded one star – of the 1996 film version, directed by Christopher Hampton and with an all-star cast including Bob Hoskins as the eponymous agent Verloc, Patricia Arquette as his comely wife Winnie, and Christian Bale as her half-witted brother Stevie.

Ebert’s grouse was that the novel (written in 1907) is a “character study”, but “the movie deals more with externals and, since there are few of any interest, it drags and finally sighs and expires”. The solution, if that’s the word, »

Mickey Rourke’s Face

12 July 2016 6:48 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez's Sin City (2005) is playing on Mubi June 18 - July 17, 2016 in the United States. Sin CityWhat happens when a performer’s face changes? This very question animated a bewildering piece by Owen Gleiberman last month in Variety, wherein Gleiberman—a man—pondered whether Renée Zellweger’s slightly aged, maybe plastic surgery-tinkered visage made her an entirely different performer. He sustained this mediation on the basis of a whopping three-minute trailer for Bridget Jones’ sBaby, hoarily declaring his good intentions to combat Hollywood’s sexist machinations at his piece’s onset. Yet, in spite of this pretense, his approach exhibited an astonishing lack of stringency, ultimately scrutinizing Zellweger along the same sexist lines he claimed to bemoan. Like others, I find this storied practice of male critics inspecting women’s faces pretty odious. If male critics have gotten craftier than such forefathers as John Simon (who, »

14 June 2016 1:05 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Patricia Arquette says African-American, Native American and Latina women are suffering “economic suppression.” The actress, who made a call for equal pay part of her Oscar acceptance speech last year, spoke at the White House’s United State of Women Summit on Tuesday. “A typical African American, Native American and Latina women earn .64, .59 and .54 respectively for every dollar paid to a typical man,” said the actress. “That is economic suppression.” She called on corporations to introduce equal pay policies rather than wait for Congress to pass a paycheck fairness legislation. She began with a tribute to victims in the Orlando shooting. »

Megan Mullally Remembers Winning Her First Emmy for ‘Will & Grace’

8 June 2016 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Megan Mullally had been acting professionally since the early ’80s but it wasn’t until “Will & Grace” premiered in 1998 that she found her breakout role on camera. Groundbreaking at the time, the series really took off in season two, landing 11 Emmy noms and wins for Mullally, co-star Sean Hayes and best comedy series. Mullally was nominated six more times, winning again for the final season in 2006.

What stands out about that first nomination?

[My husband] Nick [Offerman] and I met just a few months before the Emmys. We met in April of 2000 and we weren’t really an official couple until June or July. His family has a fishing trip they go on every year in Minnesota so he had invited me to go and meet his whole family. There was like no cell phone service at the time, people were using those giant cordless phones that looked like a brick. You had »

Movie Review – The Neon Demon (2016)

7 June 2016 3:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Neon Demon, 2016.

Directed by Nicolas Winding-Refn.

Starring Elle Fanning, Jena Malone, Bella Heathcote, Desmond Harrington, Alessandro Nivola, Christina Hendricks, Abbey Lee and Keanu Reeves.

Synopsis:

When aspiring model Jesse moves to Los Angeles, her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will take any means necessary to get what she has.

In a hidey-hole of the cinematic universe lies a select group of filmmakers that dare to reimagine what it means to make movies and what it takes to watch them. Nicolas Winding Refn is such a filmmaker. His movies are like light beams from another world, and when casted against the silver screen, we see the cold, colorful inner space of his dreams and his visions. In Pusher, we saw the nightmarish reality of the Danish underworld, in Bronson we saw the livid, explosive personality of a man who could not exist outside of prison, »

‘House of Cards’ Star Robin Wright Demanded Equal Pay With Kevin Spacey

18 May 2016 9:19 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When “House of Cards” star Robin Wright discovered she was being paid less than her on-screen husband and co-star Kevin Spacey, the actress did exactly what her character, Claire Underwood, would do, and closed the gap — by any means necessary.

“I was like, ‘I want to be paid the same as Kevin,'” Wright said during an interview at the Rockefeller Foundation, per the Huffington Post.

“It was the perfect paradigm. There are very few films or TV shows where the male, the patriarch, and the matriarch are equal. And they are in ‘House of Cards,'” she noted of the Netflix series. “I was looking at the statistics and Claire Underwood’s character was more popular than [Spacey’s] for a period of time. So I capitalized on it. I was like, ‘You better pay me or I’m going to go public,’ and they did.”

Wright is also an executive producer on the Netflix hit, »
