Andrew Dominik’s 10 Favorite Films

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

Across his three features this century, Andrew Dominik has explored masculine ideals (and the lack thereof) with an uncompromising vision. While earning the most acclaim for his stunning western The Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford, his follow-up Killing Them Softly is also distinctive in its laser-focused fury, getting the impressive distinction of an “F” CinemaScore to cement it as something truly special. His long-gestating next feature, Blonde, is hopefully still happening (the last we heard, Netflix may back it and shooting could begin as early as this year), but as we wait for confirmation, today we’re looking at his favorite films of all-time.

Courtesy of his Sight & Sound ballot, it’s a primarily American-focused line-up with classics from Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorsese, Billy Wilder, and David Lynch (x2). Perhaps most interesting is his favorite Alfred Hitchcock film, one of the man’s last five features: Marnie, »

Beth Howland, Who Played Vera on Sitcom ‘Alice,’ Dies at 74

25 May 2016 12:14 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Beth Howland, who was best known for playing Vera, a flighty waitress, on the ’70s and ’80s sitcom “Alice,” died in Santa Monica. She was 74.

Her husband, actor Charles Kimbrough, confirmed her death to the Associated Press, revealing that the actress died from lung cancer on Dec. 31. He said Howland did not want a service, funeral or memorial.

Howland began her career at 16 when she landed a role on Dick Van Dyke’s “Bye Bye Birdie.” The Boston native caught the eye of CBS when she starred in a stage production of “Company” in the ’70s. CBS then flew her to Hollywood for a small role on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.”

She later booked small roles on “The Love Boat” and “Little House on the Prairie” before she landed on “Alice,” based on the Martin Scorsese film “Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore,” as ditzy waitress Vera Louise Gorman. »

Alice's Vera, Beth Howland, Dead at 74

25 May 2016 7:38 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Beth Howland, who is fondly remembered as high-strung waitress Vera on the 1970s/80s CBS sitcom Alice, died on Dec. 31 at the age of 74, following a battle with lung cancer. Howland’s husband, Murphy Brown vet Charles Kimbrough, told the New York Times that he refrained from announcing her death earlier, in keeping with her wishes.

Howland won the role of Vera Louise Gorman (which was played by Valerie Cutin in the 1974 Martin Scorsese film Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore) after a Warner Bros. TV exec saw her play anxious bride-to-be Amy in Stephen Sondheim’s Broadway musical Company. »

[Cannes Review] Dog Eat Dog

24 May 2016 10:13 AM, PDT | 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, »

Cannes: Market wrap

24 May 2016 6:22 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Stx’s $50m play, Amazon Studios’ charm offensive and other takeaways from this year’s market.

The sunlight at the recent Cannes Film Festival may have confounded early forecasts of interminable rain but the outlook for the film business remains stormy.

While several Us companies with points to prove strutted their stuff and international buyers circled must-have titles, the struggle to survive in a dynamic post-2008 landscape remains the most urgent narrative.

That was reflected in a Croisette that seemed quieter than usual, although attendees responded to opportunities when they arose. Market attendance was up year-on-year by several points according to Jerome Paillard, executive director of the Marche du Film, although there was anecdotal evidence of several companies sending leaner teams.

The paucity of foot traffic seemed to indicate that the threat of terror attacks had weighed heavily on the mind of tourists, who by and large stayed away - although to what extent it was not »

While fledgling studio Stx has gotten their feet wet by releasing mostly genre fare, during the Cannes Film Festival they made some power moves, picking up domestic rights on Aaron Sorkin‘s “Molly’s Game” and international rights on Martin Scorsese‘s “The Irishman.” Will they be a new home in Hollywood for adult fare? We’ll see, but […]

Cannes: Rt Features Boards Sotomayor’s ‘Too Late’

23 May 2016 3:40 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cannes — Rodrigo Teixeira’s Rt Features, an “Indignation” and “Little Men” producer and Martin Scorsese co-producer on Josh and Benny Sadie’s “Uncut Gems,” has boarded “Late To Die Young,” from Dominga Sotomayor, a double Rotterdam Tiger winner with “Thursday Till Sunday,” her debut, and “The Island,” which she co-directed.

Deal came at Cannes as Paul Hudson’s Outsider Pictures inked North America on another Chilean movie, Fernando Lavanderos’ “No North.”

Produced by Sotomayor’s Santiago de Chile-based Cinestacion and Rt Features, and set for a first-half 2017 shoot, the Sundance and Rotterdam Hubert Bals Fund-backed “Too Late” is a coming of age tale about three adolescents, set in an isolated rural community in the context of Chile’s return to democracy, Sotomayor told Variety.

She added:“The alliance allows us to shoot soon; also, I admire the films Rt Features is producing, its involvement, for example, in the next Kiarostami. »

From Gaga to Shia: 10 Biggest Stories at the Cannes Film Festival

22 May 2016 12:36 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the 69th Cannes Film Festival draws to a close, here’s a look back at some of the biggest scandals, trends and other worthwhile tales from the Croisette.

Ken Loach Wins Another Palme d’Or

Ken Loach can now boast a rare distinction among filmmakers–more than one Palme d’Or trophy. The director’s “I, Daniel Blake” picked up the top prize at Sunday’s closing ceremony, following his 2006 victory for “The Wind That Shakes the Barley.” The win also marked a great day for IFC Films, whose sister label Sundance Selects acquired the movie about a disabled carpenter (Dave Johns) trying to hold on to his British welfare benefits.

Andrea Arnold’s drama about a group of kids hustling for money on a road trip across the country was another beloved English-language movie to premiere at Cannes this year, and it took home the jury prize. »

HBO Faces Major Programming Challenges as Michael Lombardo Departs

20 May 2016 6:12 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Michael Lombardo may not have been pushed overboard at HBO. But as he disembarks, the ship is taking on water.

Lombardo, whom Variety reported Friday will step down as HBO programming president, is a 33-year veteran of the premium cable channel. Promoted to his current role in 2007, he oversaw the network’s resurgence following the end of “The Sopranos” and the departure of former CEO Chris Albrecht. Under current CEO Richard Plepler, he developed a fleet of hits, Emmy winners and critical darlings that includes “True Blood,” “Eastbound & Down,” “Boardwalk Empire,” “The Newsroom,” “Girls,” “Veep,” “True Detective” (well, the first season) and “Silicon Valley.” Lombardo’s most important legacy is “Game of Thrones,” the series that through its record-breaking Emmy hauls and outsize ratings has defined HBO in the post-“Sopranos” era.

But with “Game of Thrones” set to end after two more seasons, HBO now faces a transitional period. »

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, »

This 'depraved' film got booed at Cannes and now I want to see it more

19 May 2016 3:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The list of films that have been booed at the Cannes Film Festival is long and illustrious: Inglourious Basterds, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, Antichrist, The Brown Bunny, The Tree of Life and even Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver, which was jeered when it won the festival's Palme d'Or in 1976. Now you can add Nicholas Winding Refn's The Neon Demon to that list, which premiered to a chorus of "resounding boos" following its premiere at the festival on Thursday. Now I want to see it more. One thing the above-listed films have in common is their utter audaciousness, from Antichrist's arthouse torture porn climax to Brown Bunny's infamous unsimulated fellatio scene between Chloe Sevigny and director/star Vincent Gallo. While I don't love all of them (Fire Walk with Me being a notable exception), they're certainly not boring -- and there are elements in each that offer something wildly different from the norm. »

Joe Pesci Passes Up Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, According To Reports

19 May 2016 9:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If Fox Searchlight’s acquisition of Nate Parker’s The Birth of a Nation was the story of Sundance, then one of the biggest deals emerging from the Croisette involved Martin Scorsese’s long-in-development mob drama The Irishman, after landing a $50 million dollar deal at Stx Entertainment.

Such a huge figure comes packing huge expectations though, and it’s little wonder Scorsese’s latest creative venture has garnered buzz, given old cohorts Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci (Goodfellas/Casino/Raging Bull) had been linked with key roles alongside Al Pacino.

It’s certainly a tantalizing trio, but The Hollywood Reporter reveals Joe Pesci is unlikely to put pen to paper, having all but retired from acting since last appearing in Taylor Hackford’s Love Ranch all the way back in 2010. Plus, in those intervening years, it’s understood that Scorsese hasn’t been the only director to offer Pesci a gig. »

Joe Pesci unlikely to appear in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman

19 May 2016 7:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having finally reached a deal to bring The Irishman to the screen at Cannes after a fierce bidding war, Martin Scorsese’s plans for his long-gestating adaptation of Charles Brandt’s bestselling book I Heard You Paint Houses have suffered a setback, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that there’s a big question mark over the involvement of Joe Pesci.

According to the site, Pesci – who has not appeared on screen since 2010’s Love Ranch – has “repeatedly has told Scorsese no” with regards to appearing in the project, which will star both Robert De Niro and Al Pacino. However, the article also states that the director “remains hopeful” that he can convince his Goodfellas star to come out of retirement for the movie.

The Irishman follows the “biggest mob hit in history” and will see De Niro as Frank Sheeran, who on his deathbed claimed to have killed Jimmy Hoffa, »

'Rules Don't Apply' to the long-rumored Howard Hughes film by Warren Beatty

18 May 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Warren Beatty’s been talking about Howard Hughes as long as I’ve lived in Los Angeles. When I was in high school, one of the things I did was devour entire careers on home video as a way of educating myself about various filmmakers and eras. I was aware of Warren Beatty before that, certainly, and remember Heaven Can Wait in particular as a big commercial moment for Beatty. I loved that movie and the weird goofball guy who starred in it, but it was almost a decade later when I finally plunged headlong into his filmography and suddenly realized that I kind of adore Beatty. And why not? Look at that body of work in front of the camera first. He’s been relatively selective over the years, and considering what a giant movie star he was considered at one time, he never really became omnipresent like some of his peers. »
