In an interview with TF1 on Sunday, Macron confirmed he had reached out to the Grand Chancellor of the Order in Paris to ask the institution to revoke Weinstein’s Legion of Honor, France’s highest award. Then-president Nicolas Sarkozy had given the Legion of Honor to Weinstein in 2012, after “The Artist” — which Weinstein distributed and campaigned for — won five Oscars.
“I have asked the Grand Chancellor of the Order to examine quickly this case and launch a disciplinary procedure [against Weinstein]…considering the gravity of the facts,” said Macron, adding that the Chancellor will have to make the ultimate decision.
Earlier this week, the Grand Chancellor of the Order told Variety that it would not consider stripping Weinstein of the
In order to keep diehard viewers sated until its last episodes hit the small screen, here are some ideas for films that might help ease the pain, from classic Westerns to underseen historical dramas, all with that special “Thrones” touch (murderous, political, bloody, and at least partially beholden to mythical beasts).

Cannes’ love of the gothic is nothing new. The festival has long been a melting pot for bold visions, and this includes some of the world’s scariest films. From established risk-takers like Lars von Trier and Nicolas Winding Refn to once-green directors like Gaspar Noé and Sam Raimi, the strength of the talent has left some indelible impressions on the horror scene.

Elle Driver is reporting brisk business on Audrey Dana’s comedy If I Were A Boy following a packed screening at the Unifrance Rendez-vous With French Cinema in Paris, which runs from January 12-16.

The post Marrakech Film Festival 2016: Carole Matthieu Review appeared first on HeyUGuys.
This year’s edition had a very strong world cinema imprint, highly influenced by the country tribute to Russian cinema and the choice of iconoclastic Hungarian filmmaker, Bela Tara, as jury prexy.
The career tributes and masterclasses featured outspoken filmmakers, who have provoked controversy in their home countries and in several cases have moved abroad to maintain their creative independence.
Tarr proudly described himself as one Hungary’s “top five black sheep” and has spent the last five years running his Film Factory school in Sarajevo, Bosnia, where he encourages his students to hunt in order to “capture life” in their films.
Paul Verhoeven, who this week was confirmed
Adjani was visibly moved by the tribute, in particular by a medley of scenes from her most famous films, including “Camille Claudel” and “Queen Margot.”
As she walked up the red carpet to enter the Palais de Congres, she was asked whether she leaves a bit of her soul in each film, to which she replied: “Of course, we give a bit of our soul in each part we play. But we hope to renew it with each new film.
“Elle,” Verhoeven’s latest, premiered in Cannes and has been lauded by critics.
“With Paul Verhoeven as jury president, we have a filmmaker who has worked in a variety of genres in Europe and Hollywood. His creative, multifaceted boldness and his willingness to experiment are reflected in the spectrum of his works,” said Dieter Kosslick, director of the Berlinale.
Verhoeven was nominated for an Oscar in 1974 for his erotic thriller “Turkish Delight.” He also directed the 1992 sexual thriller “Basic Instinct” with Sharon Stone, which sparked controversy over its storyline and use of nudity.
Verhoeven’s entertainment career began in the 1960s with the Dutch TV series “Floris.” His first feature film, “Diary of a Hooker” (also known as “Business Is Business”) in 1971, focused on the aspirations of two prostitutes.
