[Cannes Review] Dog Eat Dog

16 hours ago | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Paul Schrader might want to consider expanding his thematic scope a little. Decade after decade, film after film, regardless of whether he’s been writing scripts for others (Martin Scorsese, first and foremost), or sitting in the director’s chair himself, the erstwhile Calvinist has come back to the theme of redemption with obstinate persistence. His protagonists are almost always men, they’re almost always amoral sinners of some ilk or other, and they almost always yearn to break out of the wicked, vicious cycles on which their lives have been relentlessly spinning. Not an unfruitful theme by any means, considering it has given rise to many a masterpiece across the history of cinema – of all arts, really – but Dog Eat Dog suggests that, as far his own filmmaking is concerned, Schrader may have exhausted its potential.

Things actually look promising at first. Taking the trashy gusto exhibited in The Canyons to whole new extremes, »

Elijah Wood Denies Personal Knowledge of Child Sex Abuse in Hollywood (Exclusive)

23 May 2016 12:50 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Elijah Wood would like to make one thing clear: He has no firsthand knowledge of child sex abuse in Hollywood. That clarification, issued by Wood exclusively to The Hollywood Reporter, comes as he finds his name making international headlines for unintentional reasons. During a recent sit-down with the Sunday Times, ostensibly to promote The Trust, a heist movie co-starring Nicolas Cage, the actor took a brief detour when the subject of Jimmy Savile came up. Savile, a famed DJ with the BBC, was found after his death to have been responsible for nearly six decades of sex abuses perpetrated against as

Cannes Review: Paul Schrader’s ‘Dog Eat Dog’ With Nicolas Cage & Willem Dafoe Is Never Boring, But Never Coherent Either

22 May 2016 5:58 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“Gonzo” doesn’t always mean “good,” although along with “batshit,” it’s a word that has evolved almost entirely into a breathless, admiring positive in the film-reviewing lexicon. “Gonzo” tells you your grandmother won’t like it; it says “controversial” and implies a seat-of-the-pants thrill ride in which the flaws are the very same thing as the virtues.

'Wolf And Sheep', 'The Together Project' win at Directors' Fortnight

21 May 2016 3:46 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The Together Project was directed by Solveig Anspach, who died last August.

Afghan fantasy drama Wolf And Sheep has picked up the Art Cinema Award at the 48th Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes.

Making Of… Wolf And Sheep

It marks the completion of a six-year journey with Cannes for Afghan director Shahrbanoo Sadat, who was 20 when selected as the youngest participant of the festival’s Cinefondation Residency, where she began to develop this debut in 2010.

Wolf And Sheep follows a group of Afghan shepherd boys and girls living in a remote village, where folklore helps explain the world’s mysteries.

Starring largely non-professional actors, Wolf And Sheep was shot in Tajikistan because it was too dangerous for the crew to shoot in Afghanistan.

The Denmark-France-Sweden-Afghanistan co-production is produced by Katja Adomeit and is being sold by Alpha Violet.

Although considered a non-competitive section, the film was selected for the sponsored prize over titles such as Pablo Larrain’s [link »

You can’t really do crime without landing somewhere near Eddie Bunker. The former convict turned author and movie consultant has his finger prints all over some of the best crime films. He wrote the screenplays for the underrated Dustin Hoffman-starring “Straight Time” (1978), “Runaway Train” (1985) and “Animal Factory” (2000). He consulted with Michael Mann […]

Mfr Explores The Dceu's Road To Ruin: Column #3

20 May 2016 12:20 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome back to a special ongoing look at Warner Bros. and how it's handled its DC Comics properties. It's going to be a weekly, ongoing miniseries here at Lrm. This entry will look at Batman Begins, Superman Returns, Green Lantern, and more. We'll explore all of the interesting parallels and forks in the road that brought us to where the Dceu is today. 

Last week, we left off in 2004. Warner Bros. was preparing to relaunch its two DC Comics icons Superman and Batman, after flirting with jumping straight to a Batman Versus Superman movie. They backpedalled on that idea and, instead, poured all of their resources into re-establishing the characters as solo entities first, with the hope that a team-up or clash would eventually be in the cards.

Batman Begins

The first of these new films would be Batman Begins. Christopher Nolan, fresh off of critical successes with a few smaller films, »

Cannes Film Review: ‘Dog Eat Dog’

20 May 2016 4:11 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

They say prostitution is the world’s oldest profession, but that’s only because crime doesn’t pay, or else robbers, murderers and thieves would surely come first. Their exploits have been the stuff of cinema since the medium’s earliest days, to the extent that the crime genre has become all but calcified — which surely explains why director Paul Schrader goes so far out of his way to break all the rules with “Dog Eat Dog.” Coming off the indignity of having “Dying of the Light” taken away from him, the “Taxi Driver” screenwriter-turned-director seems determined to try out some new tricks. He means for the result to feel fresh and electric, but instead, his anarchic approach (one could even call it “criminal,” considering how it deliberately disobeys genre laws) frequently verges on incompetent, as most of the time, rejecting the obvious choice leads to choosing a worse one. »

Cannes: Paul Schrader's 'Dog Eat Dog' Deserves a Buyer

20 May 2016 3:41 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If Paul Schrader came to Cannes seeking redemption with his latest film, Quinzaine closing entry "Dog Eat Dog," he got it.  The packed house applauded the lurid crime caper on Friday morning, where the writer-director faced questions about the dubious morality of ex-con anti-heroes (played by Schrader regulars Nicolas Cage and Willem Dafoe), who wreak havoc wherever they go.  Schrader’s been dealing with such issues since he wrote the script for Martin Scorsese’s "Taxi Driver," which won the Palme d’Or in Cannes 40 years ago. "From the first sequence on, I try to send the message that if you are taking this seriously, you’re in the wrong movie," Schrader told the crowd. "This is so unreal, such a lark, that it doesn’t pose any more threat than a Tom and Jerry cartoon." While the director enjoyed channeling the likes of Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino and Humphrey Bogart, »

On the phone from New York the week before the festival, he was ready to sign off on the final mix on May 16th, get a print on the 18th, leave for Cannes with his Blu-Ray in hand, and face the critics when the film screened on the 20th in Directors Fortnight. "Every project has this drama," he chuckled. "But this is good drama!" Whatever the critics will say, the writer-director was upbeat. "You know there won't be many people left [at Cannes]," he said. "You can be killed. But I don’t worry, because we're closing the Fortnight. Even the people with knives will be on the plane!" Schrader is also happy because, »

Blade, Ghost Rider and Moon Knight TV Shows Happening at Netflix?

18 May 2016 11:18 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in May 2013, Marvel Studios reacquired the rights to four of its beloved comic book properties, Daredevil, The Punisher, Ghost Rider and Blade, after these titles held by various different studios lapsed. Just a few months later, Marvel announced that Daredevil would one of four new TV shows debuting on Netflix, followed by Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. During this current season of Daredevil, the show introduced The Punisher, played by Jon Bernthal, who is getting his own Netflix spinoff as well. But we haven't heard much about the studio's plans for Ghost Rider and Blade. Today we have a new report that claims Marvel and Netflix are in fact developing TV shows for Ghost Rider and Blade, along with another Marvel character, Moon Knight.

This new report from Movie Creed Live doesn't offer any details about any of these series, or how far along in development they may or may not be. »

Marvel & Netflix Plan Three More Series?

18 May 2016 6:08 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Could Marvel and Netflix be working out a deal for three more series involving famed comic characters?

MovieCreedLive (via Latino Review) has heard from sources that suggest Blade, Ghost Rider, and Moon Knight are being considered for their own series.

They also indicate only two will make it as the third series is the already announced "The Punisher" starring Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle.

Both "Blade" and "Ghost Rider" have been adapted before - the former into three films with Wesley Snipes and a short-lived cable TV series, the latter into two films starring Nicolas Cage.

"Moon Knight," who has previously been dubbed Marvel's take on Batman, has not yet been adapted for the screen. »

MovieCreedLive has possibly revealed the next three Marvel characters who will be featured in their own solo Netflix series alongside The Punisher in the near future. According to their sources, Blade, Ghost Rider, and Moon Knight are being considered for their own series.

Moon Knight on the other hand is a third-tier hero who is described as "Marvel's version of Batman."  The similarities include Moon Knight's millionaire alter-ego Steven Grant and the fact he uses a vast array of gadgets and weaponry to stop criminals.

New Images and Clips from Paul Schrader’s ‘Dog Eat Dog’ Starring Nicolas Cage and Willem Dafoe

16 May 2016 12:23 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If you ask our critics on the ground, a number of great films have already premiered at Cannes — mostly in competition, however. And while those screening in the other sections are inevitably overshadowed in just about every way, some of the best titles emerge therein year after year. I’ll go out on a limb and say I expect this to be the case with Paul Schrader‘s Dog Eat Dog, a crime thriller led by Nicolas Cage, Willem Dafoe, and… Schrader himself?

Feast your eyes upon the great writer-director’s onscreen acting debut, footage of which has been revealed in a clip posted to Deadline. As he told them:

“I had no intention of playing The Greek. Over pre-production, I approached Michael Douglas, Quentin Tarantino, Martin Scorsese, Nick Nolte, Chris Walken, Jeff Goldblum, Michael Winncot and Rupert Everett to play the Greek as a transgender Cleveland gangster. For one reason or another, »

The Trust review: “A dark, twisted and fun thrill ride”

15 May 2016 9:34 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Trust review: Nicolas Cage returns to the screen opposite Elijah Wood in this dark comedy that debut feature directors Alex and Benjamin Brewer.

The Trust review by Awais Irfan, May 2016.

The Trust review

After a whole string of bad films, from Outcast to Left Behind to The Runner, the once-great Nicolas Cage really needed a good role in a good film to perhaps give him sort of redemption and show the world that not all hope is lost with his career. His latest project, the bad-cop crime film The Trust is just that; taking him back to his Leaving Las Vegas roots, this slick and competent thriller is Cage’s first good film since 2013’s remarkable Joe – a dark, twisted and fun thrill ride.

When police officer Jim Stone (Nicolas Cage) notices an unusually high bail receipt for a drugs bust, he begins to devise a plan to find »

Paul Schrader’s 'Dog Eat Dog' Clips & Photos: Nicolas Cage Stars in Dour Crime Thriller

14 May 2016 2:47 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Things didn't turn out especially well last time Paul Schrader and Nicolas Cage worked together. The writer/director and actor both disavowed "Dying of the Light" after studio interference turned it into something neither of them wanted to be associated with, the result being a film that few saw and no one claimed as their own. Out of Cannes comes the news that their next collaboration, "Dog Eat Dog," seems likely to fare better: Schrader got final cut this time around. The film closes the Directors' Fortnight section of the festival next week, with a new clip and several images now available in the meantime.
