The Neon Demon Review

20 June 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

My, what a treat it’d be to spend even five nanoseconds in the mind of Nicolas Winding Refn. Neon strobes, vile torture, cannibalistic corpse-kissing nymphos – Refn’s style blends sinister sleaze with posh, club-centric pop artistry that glows a vibrant, sadistic hue. We all knew The Neon Demon would submerge Los Angeles’ modeling scene in a dead-sexy taste of dog-eat-dog warfare, but with such little storytelling? Even for Refn? Don’t get me wrong, he’s the master of style over substance – and that’s coming from an Only God Forgives apologist – yet his latest piece of work comes off as egotistically narrow-minded.

If you need to be reminded how important that whole “substance” thing is, here’s a perfect example.

Elle Fanning stars as Refn’s muse, a not-quite-legal midwestern beauty with dreams of becoming runway model royalty. As soon as she arrives in town, Fanning’s supple »

Vanessa Williams, Sterling Knight Join ‘Man From Earth’ Sequel

27 May 2016 4:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Vanessa Williams, Sterling Knight, Brittany Curran, Carlos Knight and Akemi Look are joining “The Man From Earth: Holocene,” a sequel to 2007’s sci-fier “The Man From Earth.”

David Lee Smith, who portrayed the lead character John Oldman, and William Katt will return. The storyline for the sequel is being kept under wraps until the film’s release in 2017.

The 2007 original, penned by sci-fi writer/author Jerome Bixby, centered on a college professor who’s actually a centuries-old caveman. Richard Schenkman is returning to direct with shooting starting next week in Southern California.

The original script was the last work from Bixby, best known for his 1953 story “It’s a Good Life,” which was the basis for a 1961 episode of “The Twilight Zone” and was included in “Twilight Zone: The Movie.” He also wrote four episodes for the “Star Trek” series and co-wrote the story upon which the movie “Fantastic Voyage” was based. »

In Happier Cannes Times

24 May 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

on this day in history as it relates to the movies...

1941 Bob Dylan is born in Minnesota, splinters into seven people in front of Todd Haynes' eyes.

1949 Jim Broadbent is born so that we might have Harold Zidler in Moulin Rouge! the film he should have won the Oscar for on the night he actually won the Oscar. Funny how that happens sometimes.

1960 Kristin Scott Thomas is born. Years later she can drop a room temperature or bring it to a boil onscreen in about 2 seconds. We miss her soooo much.

1972 Superhero Glut Producer of the CW, Greg Berlanti, is born.

1991 Thelma & Louise drove into theaters. You've been reading our 25th anniversary retrospective right? Part 3 hits today and we're having a blast revisiting.

2009 The White Ribbon finally wins Michael Haneke the Palme d'Or at Cannes. It goes on to two Oscar nominations for Foreign Film and Cinematography and becomes Haneke's most successful film globally, »

Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley Among 290 U.K. Celebrities Backing E.U. Membership

20 May 2016 12:02 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Jude Law and Steve Coogan are among 290 actors, directors, writers, musicians and other leading lights of the world of entertainment, the arts and culture calling for the U.K. to remain part of the European Union in an open letter published on British news sites Friday.

Britons vote in a June 23 referendum on whether to withdraw from the E.U., and the letter is the latest effort by those against a “Brexit” to sway public opinion. Polls show the vote too close to call.

Among the other actors signing the letter, derided as “luvvies” by the right-wing Daily Mail, are Helena Bonham Carter, “12 Years a Slave” star Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kristin Scott Thomas, Patrick Stewart and “The Wire” star Dominic West.

The letter states: “From the smallest gallery to the biggest blockbuster, many of us have worked on projects that would never have happened without vital E. »

I've Loved Kristin Scott Thomas So Long

8 May 2016 5:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Josh here to celebrate a very particular mother. It’s 'Girls Gone Wild' month at The Film Experience, so it seems appropriate to visit one of the best performances of the last decade with Kristin Scott Thomas in I’ve Loved You So Long. She plays Juliette, a mother who everyone views as a someone who went “wild” once, committing a murder. Despite her cool exterior, everyone is waiting for her to break again at any point. This was writer/directors Philippe Claudel’s directorial debut after an esteemed writing career, and the novelistic approach to his characters pays off well; Juliette's still waters run deep...

Prince leaves memorable movie legacy

22 April 2016 5:04 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Iconic American musician Prince, whose death was announced yesterday, made memorable contributions to cinema through his music and performances.

Prince (Prince Rogers Nelson), who rose to fame in the 1980’s with records such as ‘1999’, ‘Sign o’ the Times’ and ‘Parade’ and went on to sell more than 100 million albums, died aged 57 at his home in Minnesota. 

The pioneering musician provided soundtracks to a number of productions including the 1989 Tim Burton directed Batman and Spike Lee’s Girl 6 – which played in Un Certain Regard at Cannes in 1996.

His songs were used in dozens of films during his nearly 40-year career, including Baz Lurhmann’s Romeo and Juliet and Paul Brickman’s Risky Business.

In 1985, he won an Oscar for his score of Purple Rain. ‘When Doves Cry’ from the same film was also nominated for the Golden Globe for best original song, an accolade that Prince picked up twenty years later for ‘The Song of the Heart »

Prince’s 7 Best Movie and TV Performances: From ‘Purple Rain’ to ‘New Girl’ (Photos)

21 April 2016 6:08 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

From his film debut in “Purple Rain” to his last appearance on “Saturday Night Live,” Prince made rare — but unforgettable — appearances on the big and small screens. In his film debut, Prince played a semi-autobiographical musician who struggles in his home life and channels all his energy and passion into music. Designed as a star vehicle for the musician, the 1984 film contained several extended concert sequences. Prince directed and starred in 1986’s “Under the Cherry Moon,” co-starring Kristin Scott Thomas. He played a gigolo who worked with a partner to swindle rich French women, but things, of course, get »

César Winners: Mustang, Fatima, Michael Douglas and More...

27 February 2016 7:47 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Busy awards weekend, huh? The Spirit Awards commence this evening (Murtada will graciously live blog so yours truly can reserve last fumes of energy for Oscar night) but France's own Oscars, the Césars were already held. (We discussed their nominations earlier right here.)

<-- The glorious Juliette Binoche graced the poster for the big event and also presented best picture. Michael Douglas was the honorary winner (they love their Hollywood stars at the Césars in that particular way).

It turned out to be quite a Ladies Night as three films about women battled it out for supremacy: Fatima, an immigrant drama was the surprise Best Picture winner; Marguerite an operatic musical/comedy (based on the same story as Meryl Streep's forthcoming Florence Foster Jenkins) was the nomination leader and won multiple tech trophies and Best Actress; and, finally, the great Mustang (France's Turkish-language Oscar nominee and on my top ten list) took Screenplay, »

‘Downton Abbey’ Stars Talk First Impressions, Favorite Moments and Emotional Final Season

1 January 2016 12:44 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Downton Abbey” stars and exec producer Gareth Neame swapped stories and shared favorite moments from the series during a recent gathering in New York to promote the drama’s final season on PBS, which bows Jan. 3.

Here’s a rundown of memorable observations from the night:

Jim Carter (Mr. Carson) knew the show was for him when he noticed an intriguing line of stage direction in the script he’d been given for his audition. “It said ‘Carson sits there in his magnificence.’ I thought, ‘I could do that.’ If you want an actor to sit in magnificence, I’m your boy.”

Michelle Dockery (Lady Mary) went in to the audition thinking her character would be something like the one played by Kristin Scott Thomas in 2001’s “Gosford Park,” the Robert Altman-directed parlor mystery for which “Downton Abbey” creator Julian Fellowes earned a screenwriting Oscar. She realized that was »
