‘Stonehearst Asylum’ Blu-ray Review

22 June 2015 12:04 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jim Sturgess, Kate Beckinsale, Michael Caine, Ben Kingsley, Brendan GleesonDavid Thewlis, Jason Flemyng, Sophie Kennedy Clark, Sinéad Cusack, Edmund Kingsley, Ciara Flynn, Christopher Fulford | Written by Joe Gangemi | Directed by Brad Anderson

If you were told about a film based on an Edgar Allen Poe short story with stars including Kate Beckinsale, Michael Caine, Ben Kingsley and Brendan Gleeson I’d be surprised if your interest wasn’t peeked.  Stoneheart Asylum (aka Eliza Graves) is just that… based on The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether by Poe it tells the tale of an Asylum where not all is as it seems.

When Edward Newgate (Jim Sturgess) a medical school graduate arrives at Stonehearst Asylum he finds himself transfixed by Eliza Graves (Kate Beckinsale) a patient supposedly suffering from “Hysteria.”  Working under Dr. Silas Lamb (Ben Kingsley) he finds himself impressed with the doctor’s unconventional methods of treatment. »

The Face of an Angel is a Disappointing (and Fictionalized) Retelling of the Amanda Knox Trial

21 June 2015 10:51 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

“You can’t tell the truth unless you make it a fiction,” says journalist Simone Ford (Kate Beckinsale) to filmmaker Thomas Lang (Daniel Bruhl) in Michael Winterbottom’s The Face of An Angel. Since the film itself is a fictionalized re-telling of the events surrounding the Amanda Knox murder trial, we can presume that she’s talking both to the character onscreen and to the audience – trying to justify the movie we’re watching as a necessary re-imagining of a real incident about which many people have strong feelings.The rough outline of the events presented in the film is superficially similar to the 2007 Knox case, which captured the world’s headlines for a few years: A young American student and her Italian boyfriend are accused of brutally killing her flatmate, with a confusing soup of evidence – much of it circumstantial, little of it forensic – gathered by incompetent cops.

It’s Hard to Take Face of an Angel Seriously

Neil Clarke, a schoolteacher, suddenly discovers he has magical powers. In fact, with the wave of his hand, he can make absolutely anything happen. From wiping out a particularly disruptive class (and then bringing them – and anyone else who has ever died! – back to life), to turning his best mate into the kind of man women would not only die for, but would worship to the ends of the earth and back. The only snag is getting the words right and of course, knowing what he really wants.

Czechs Present Enhanced Production Incentives to Hollywood Producers

17 June 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — The Czech Republic is making adjustments to its production incentives to make it easier for studio films and other big-budget productions to access the cash rebate.

The country offers filmmakers who shoot there a 20% rebate on the Czech production costs and 10% on above-the-line expenses. The Czech Cinematography Fund, which administers the program, has allocated approximately $49 million to 71 film and television projects that are shooting this year and next.

Ludmila Claussova, the Czech film commissioner, is meeting with studio executives and independent producers in Los Angeles this week to present the benefits of the enhanced production rebates. The Consulate General of the Czech Republic and the Czech Film Commission hosted a discussion on the topic Wednesday at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles.

The rebate will no longer be subject to a yearly cap. Producers will be able to register at any time and immediately receive a »

Accidental Love review

16 June 2015 5:02 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jessica Biel and Jake Gyllenhaal star in the long-shelved comedy, Accidental Love. Ryan finds out whether it was worth the 7-year wait...

In the beginning there was David O Russell's Nailed, a political comedy which began filming in 2008 and, after a disastrous string of financing problems, seemingly died two years later. Deciding to cut his losses, a frustrated Russell abandoned the project in 2010 and moved onto Oscar glory with The Fighter, Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle.

But like Rasputin, Nailed has lingered on without Russell's involvement. Missing pieces have been shot and put in place, and the finished film - now called Accidental Love - is credited to one Stephen Greene, an Alan Smithee-like pseudonym. The result is a fitfully amusing farce that can't begin to hide the scars of its troubled production.

Jessica Biel stars as Alice, an 25-year-old small-town waitress who's caught the eye of vain local cop, »

Kate Beckinsale and Daniel Bruhl search for a story in first trailer for ‘The Face of an Angel’

4 June 2015 5:15 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Filmmakers love to put murder mysteries on the big screen, which makes it no surprise that director Michael Winterbottom (who is mostly known for The Trip and The Trip to Italy) has done so in his latest feature The Face of an Angel. Here’s the official synopsis:

The Face Of An Angel tells the story of a journalist and a filmmaker as they lose themselves in a notorious murder case they are covering. Based on true events, a riveting account of the controversial case of an American student accused of murder in Italy.

While the trailer is a little hard to follow, Daniel Bruhl and Kate Beckinsale make an interesting pair as the journalist and filmmaker who cover the murder case in Italy. Cara Delevingne also stars in the film, but it’s not quite clear what her role is, only that she and Daniel Bruhl get involved with each other at some point. »

Watch: Daniel Brühl, Cara Delevingne & Kate Beckinsale Mix The Media & Murder In New Trailer For 'The Face Of An Angel'

29 May 2015 11:06 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

These days, the notion of blind justice is an aspirational ideal rather than an actual reality. The minute a sizzling story hits the headlines, the truth depends on which light you choose to shine on the facts. The more high profile the case, the more distorted and blurred the lines become, and that's what Michael Winterbottom investigates in "The Face Of An Angel." Starring Daniel Brühl, Cara Delevingne, and Kate Beckinsale, the film is inspired by the Amanda Knox story, and follows a movie director who travels to Italy to investigate the case of a young student accused of murder for an upcoming movie. But he sees a whole other side of things after befriending an international journalist and falling into a relationship with a young bartender, and as it goes on, Winterbottom's film is less interested in the murder that kicks off the chain of the events than in »
