David, who has played a heightened version of himself on the show since its debut in 2000, has been notoriously opaque about the prospect of new episodes, which were last unleashed in 2011. Set to return for what will be the ninth season of “Curb” are Jeff Garlin, Susie Essman, and Jb Smoove.   Uma Thurman »

Refugees and Nationalism: How Europe Is Questioning Its Identity Through the Movies

8 July 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Less than two weeks after the start of Brexit negotiations, the European Union turned to a familiar place to wrestle with its current identity crisis — the movies.

That was the setting last weekend in the Czech Republic, when European Union representatives gathered at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival to announce the 10 selections for the Lux Film Prize. At a cocktail lounge in the Grandhotel Pupp, Wes Anderson’s inspiration for “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” attendees toasted to the promise and hope of Europe’s shared cultural unity — while 473 miles west in Brussels, one member of that union outlined the terms of its removal.

European Parliament sponsors Lux, and the prizemaking will continue throughout the year. This fall at the Venice International Film Festival, those 10 films will be narrowed down to three, which will be subtitled in all 24 official E.U. languages and distributed into every member country, at which »

Why Buddhists Might Get a Kick Out of David Lowery’s ‘A Ghost Story’

7 July 2017 1:56 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In “A Ghost Story,” Casey Affleck hides under a sheet, playing the ghost of the husband haunting the life of his young widow (Rooney Mara) and then inhabiting their old home when she moves out. It’s a quiet, meditative story about the afterlife, one that resonates on a universal level as it addresses the process of mourning and moving on in broad terms. But while the movie has no specific religious connotations, Buddhists may find some specific aspects of their faith reflected in the ghost’s quest to uncover one final mystery before he can graduate to the afterlife.
