20. Dead Man Walking

Directed by: Tim Robbins

Susan Sarandon earned herself an Oscar for her work in “Dead Man Walking,” a film directed by her then husband, Tim Robbins. She plays Sister Prejean, a nun who befriends a death row inmate named Matthew (Oscar nominated Sean Penn) as they confide in one another and build a convincing relationship as the days and hours tick down until his execution. Robbins intercuts the scenes with Sarandon and Penn with moments of the actual crime taking place, creating a storytelling rift that both supports and contradicts moments within the film, creating two very carefully drawn and developed characters. In addition to visiting him regularly, Prejean begins the crusade to find him a lawyer to make an appeal, doing all she can to delay his sentence being carried out. But, as she meets the families of the victims, she finds herself torn between right »

Martin Scorsese & Kenneth Branagh Have Had "Informal Conversations" About A 'Macbeth' Movie

30 January 2015 9:37 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There is already one "Macbeth" coming this year — you know, the adaptation with Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard that's on our list of the 100 Most Anticipated Films Of 2015 — but there's always room for another version of the Bard's play, and certainly, if this happens, we'd happily sign on.  Baz Bamigboye reports that Martin Scorsese and Kenneth Branaugh have had "informal conversations" about Scorsese making a movie based on Branagh's Manchester International Festival production of "Macbeth." First playing the fest in 2013, it hopped over to New York City last summer, and Scorsese was apparently quite taken with it. The trick of this particular version is that the audience was brought right into the action, sitting literally inches away from the battles, speeches and more, making for a truly immersive experience. So one could see what would be attractive from a filmmaking standpoint to try and bring movie audiences that same sense of. »

Interview: Director Kevin Macdonald Gets Under His ‘Black Sea’

29 January 2015 5:58 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The old fashioned paranoid thriller lives, with the release of ‘Black Sea,’ a submarine movie that combines elements of the silent running of those underwater tin cans with the motivation of finding treasure – in this case Nazi gold – that has been buried where it sunk 70 years ago. The director of this film, Kevin Macdonald, creates a nail biting tension in the will-they-or-won’t-they survival mode of the British and Russian members of the submarine’s crew, led by Captain Robinson (Jude Law).

The Scotland-born Macdonald began his career as a notable documentary maker, winning an Oscar for his documentary “One Day in September” (1999), about the raid by Palestinian terrorists of the 1972 Munich Olympics. But he has also spun some Oscar gold in the narrative category, as Forest Whitaker won Best Actor for the Macdonald directed “The Last King of Scotland.” He continued to produce both features (“State of Play, »

Sean Penn: Honorary César goes Hollywood – again (photo: Sean Penn in '21 Grams') Sean Penn, 54, will receive the 2015 Honorary César (César d'Honneur), the French Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Crafts has announced.

Mark Kermode interview: critics, star ratings, Joe Cornish, PR

28 January 2015 11:42 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Kermode on modern film criticism, critics of his own work, Michael Bay, Jason Statham and male oil wrestling.

The last time we spoke to Mark Kermode, he'd just launched his book about the state of movie criticism, Hatchet Job. Since then, he's embarked on a nationwide tour with the book, and undertaken dozens of Q&As with audiences about it.

And that, as Hatchet Job continues to thrive in paperback, is where we started...

I spoke to you just as you launched Hatchet Job, and in your words, since then you've "toured the arse off it". You've done Q&As with the people who've read your book, and who you wrote it for.

So what have you learned about what audiences feel regarding film critics, and where they sit in the world?

I think the most important thing was when I started writing it, I was, as you know, »
