Sundance Film Review: Sarah Silverman in ‘I Smile Back’

13 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rarely has a performer striven so concertedly to shed any trace of his/her comedy roots as Sarah Silverman does over the course of “I Smile Back,” an addiction drama in which the acerbic comedienne gives the kind of warts-and-all, let-it-all-hang-out (body parts, fluids, etc.) turn that awards’ consultants dreams are made of. But Silverman’s performance is more than an attention-getting stunt, and it’s her hellish rendering of a New Jersey housewife under the influence of drugs, alcohol and mental illness that elevates director Adam Salky’s sophomore feature above the suburban-nightmare movie-of-the-week it otherwise often resembles. Even with the buzz sure to ignite around its Sundance premiere, “Smile” will prove a tough sell commercially, where more sensitive types will blanch at the film’s Olympian gauntlet of self-abuse, reckless endangerment and public humiliation.

Memories of Alice, part 1 by Anne-Katrin Titze

22 hours ago | | See recent news »

Still Alice co-director/writer Wash Westmoreland on Julianne Moore: "She has that way of acting that has a mystery to it." Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

In Still Alice, Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland stage an entrancing battle around the power of remembrance, a form of detective story on memory loss, starring Julianne Moore, who gives a mesmerizing performance as a linguistics professor diagnosed at age 50 with a rare form of Alzheimer's disease. Kate Bosworth, Kristen Stewart and Hunter Parrish play her children, who all weather the storm in their own way. Alec Baldwin, as her husband, wants to flee and stay, he fell in love with her mind and can't bear to see it go.

Julianne Moore as Alice: "Alice is terrified of her deterioration but tries to act as normal as possible. She is spinning a lot of plates."

The fantasist: The comic art of Woody Allen

24 January 2015 12:49 PM, PST | The Moving Arts Journal | See recent The Moving Arts Journal news »

Everyone knows Woody Allen. At least, everyone thinks they know Woody Allen. His plumage is easily identifiable: horn-rimmed glasses, baggy suit, wispy hair, kvetching demeanor, ironic sense of humor, acute fear of death. As is his habitat: New York City, though recently he has flown as far afield as London, Barcelona, and Paris. His likes are well known: Bergman, Dostoevsky, New Orleans jazz. So too his dislikes: spiders, cars, nature, Wagner records, the entire city of Los Angeles. Whether or not these traits represent the true Allen, who’s to say? It is impossible to tell, with Allen, where cinema ends and life begins, an obfuscation he readily encourages. In the late nineteen-seventies, disillusioned with the comedic success he’d found making such films as Sleeper (1973), Love and Death (1975), and Annie Hall (1977), he turned for darker territory with Stardust Memories (1980), a film in which, none too surprisingly, he plays a »

Model and Actor Plitt, Killed in Train Accident, Was Original 'Body' of Watchmen's Dr. Manhattan

21 January 2015 5:38 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Fitness model Greg Plitt killed in train accident: Plitt was the 'body' of Dr. Manhattan in 'Watchmen' movie Fitness model Greg Plitt, best known for adorning countless fitness magazine covers and for his participation on the reality TV show Work Out, was killed by a passenger train while being videotaped last Saturday afternoon, January 17, 2015, in Burbank, about 20 kilometers northwest of downtown Los Angeles. Authorities are now trying to figure out how Plitt and his two-person crew were able to access a restricted area -- without a filming permit -- and what exactly they were doing there. Online tabloids claim to have the answer, asserting that Greg Plitt's death was the result of a failed thrill-seeking stunt. The athletic Plitt, who had previously shot at least one workout video on a train track, was purportedly trying to outrun the passenger train, but tripped and fell on the tracks. »

Shelf Life: Glengarry Glen Ross

19 January 2015 7:04 AM, PST | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Every week, Shelf Life sees Tom White select and talk about a movie that lives on his DVD shelf, one he thinks we should all see. There's often times I can't get my head around how movies with such a fantastic pedigree and legacy just get forgotten, and left by the wayside. Let's take the subject of today's article. It stars Al Pacino, Kevin Spacey, Jack Lemmon, Alec Baldwin, Ed Harris, and Alan Arkin (a group of actors immensely popular across a whole range of generations), written by acclaimed playwright David Mamet, was responsible for one of Al Pacino's Oscar nominations (the same year he won for Scent of a Woman), and went onto inspire one of The Simpson's most enduring supporting characters. But when I mention 1990's Glengarry Glen Ross to people, more often than not I'm met with blank stares and exclamations of "Glengarry Glen who?". If I was prone to over-reaction, »

Film Review: Julianne Moore Delivers Shattering Portrayal in ‘Still Alice’

16 January 2015 10:01 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Chicago – In one of the best film acting performances from 2014, Julianne Moore devastatingly portrays a woman in her fifties who is a victim of early onset Alzheimer’s disease. As the effects of dementia physically deteriorates her life, it is a wonder if she is “Still Alice.”

Rating: 4.5/5.0

The performance of Moore is brave, unforgiving and sympathetic, plus it’s also unerringly sad. As much as it’s a story of Alice, it is also a story of her family, who must endure the infamous double loss of Alzheimer’s – the disintegration of the essence of their loved one, and their eventual physical demise. Alec Baldwin and Kristen Stewart (“Twilight”) represent the family with virtually no tears, as their choices regarding Alice are faced by thousands of families every year. Although difficult to experience, “Still Alice” provides a glimpse into an inevitability in most people’s lives, and is a »

Still Alice—Movie Review

15 January 2015 9:03 PM, PST | Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy | See recent Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy news »

Julianne Moore is the focal point of Still Alice and she is the reason the film is worth seeing. The picture itself is earnest and well-made, but it remains earthbound while its leading lady soars to greatness.   Moore plays a highly-respected professor of linguistics at Columbia University who shares a busy life in Manhattan with her equally accomplished husband (Alec Baldwin). Their three grown children are out in the world making their own lives, although Moore has little regard for daughter Kristen Stewart’s ambition to succeed as an actress in Los Angeles. (Their somewhat prickly relationship offers Stewart some of the best material she’s ever had to work with.) ...

Still Alice Review

15 January 2015 11:20 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Oscar train stops here – Julianne Moore is devastatingly good, and certainly worthy of all the many awards that will certainly come her way, as a linguistics professor succumbing to early-onset Alzheimer’s disease in Still Alice. Moore, who has a number of astonishing acting feats under her belt, has perhaps never been as affecting, nor as raw, as she is in the part of a woman losing the once-formidable control she had over her mind and body.

Alzheimer’s is certainly not an easy topic for any film to cover, let alone to cover well, but Moore, along with writer Lisa Genova and directors Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland, rise to the occasion, crafting a narrative that fully communicates the disease’s creeping horror while never dissolving into cable-tv levels of melodrama. Still Alice is not only a well-made film, but also an important one in how honestly it »

Julianne Moore Talks Alzheimer’s in ‘Still Alice': ‘It’s Not Fair to Make It Up’

14 January 2015 12:47 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Just two days after winning the Golden Globe for best actress in a drama for “Still Alice,” Julianne Moore can’t stop smiling.

“I’m absolutely thrilled! I still can’t believe I won,” Moore, 54, told Variety at Tuesday night’s Cinema Society screening of her critically lauded film in New York City. “It’s an honor to win a Golden Globe. It’s a really big deal.”

Moore may have won the award, but she’s now back to work promoting the Sony Pictures Classics film, which hits theaters in limited release on Jan. 16. She joined co-stars Kristen Stewart, Alec Baldwin and Kate Bosworth and co-director Wash Westmoreland at the Sunshine Theater to discuss the movie and its weighty themes.

“I am very proud and feel really lucky to have been involved on this project,” said Moore, who portrays Alice Howland, a wife, a mother of three grown children »

Best Actress Oscar Predictions 2015 Updated

14 January 2015 12:06 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

We pick the final five performances that lead the Best Actress field. 1. Julianne Moore is heartbreaking in “Still Alice,” an intimate portrait of a brainy and beautiful Columbia University professor who has everything going for her: a satisfying career, a hunky loving husband (Alec Baldwin) and three thriving grown children. When she is diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s, she and her family struggle to cope as her memories and ability to navigate her world slowly slip away.  At 53, after four nominations (two in 2002), this well-liked and respected actress has delivered the role that could win her the Oscar. Sometimes it's just the right time. Moore won Best Actress at Cannes playing an aging diva in David Cronenberg's "Maps to the Stars," but Focus Features did not step up to a proper theatrical push, shunting the film over to its digital arm Focus World, which gave the film a »
