Happy 105th birthday, Manoel de Oliveira!!! The latest in end-of-year lists comes from The New Yorker's Richard Brody, who selects Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street and Terrence Malick's To The Wonder as tied for the best film of 2013. Click here to see the rest of the list and Brody's final words on the year in cinema. Fandor has a couple cool takes on the top ten list: one by Adrian Martin on the "Best Confrontations" in cinema this year, and Aaron Cutler on the "Great Film Restorations." The Los Angeles Film Critics Association has trouble choosing, in this tie-filled list of 2013 award winners. A new film journal, Fireflies, "that celebrates the work of filmmakers, dead and living, whose films have the ability to change lives," is looking for submissions on Apichatpong Weerasethakul and Pier Paolo Pasolini for its inaugural issue.

Ein film von Jim Jarmusch. Jarmusch fans are going to flip over these. Two new character posters for Jim Jarmusch's vampire romantic drama Only Lovers Left Alive have been posted online via IMPAwards, one featuring Tim Hiddleston the other his lover Tilda Swinton. The font is perfectly Gothic and fits this quirky indie better than anyone even knows, unless they've already seen this (then they know why they're so perfect!). They're also hilariously emo, with Hilddleston holding a gun to his chest (don't try this at home, please!) and Swinton lying around hopelessly surrounded by books. The ad agency nailed it with these two. Here's the two German character posters for Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive, found on IMPAwards: Only Lovers Left Alive, written & directed by Jim Jarmusch (Dead Man, Broken Flowers, Limits of Control) takes place against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier and »

International artwork has come in for three films that are all on our radar so we made one big smorgasbord out of them for you. Check out Devil's Due in Spanish; I, Frankenstein in Italian; and eine doppelte dosis of Only Lovers Left Alive in German.
20th Century Fox's Devil’s Due, featuring Allison Miller ("Terra Nova") and Zach Gilford ("Friday Night Lights") , opens in theaters everywhere January 17, 2014. Penned by Lindsay Devlin, it's directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett (Radio Silence).
After a mysterious, lost night on their honeymoon, a newlywed couple find themselves dealing with an earlier-than-planned pregnancy. While recording everything for posterity, the husband begins to notice odd behavior in his wife that they initially write off to nerves, but as the months pass, it becomes evident that the dark changes to her body and mind have a much more sinister origin.

A new clip (sadly only in German) and three new international posters have surfaced for cult indie director Jim Jarmusch’s romantic gothic chiller Only Lovers Left Alive. Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton lead the bloodthirsty love story as vampires Adam and Eve, who’ve been together for centuries but find a their immortal lifestyle, currently masquerading as depressed underground rock musicians, tested by the arrival of one of their devious siblings.
Only Lovers Left Alive is Jarmusch’s first effort since 2005s underrated black comedy Broken Flowers. The impressive supporting cast includes Jeffrey Wright, Anton Yelchin, John Hurt and Mia Wasikowska. It’s released in the UK on the 21st February 2014.

See Tilda Swinton in the third poster for Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive, also starring Tom Hiddleston, John Hurt and Mia Wasikowska. Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them? »
A brand spanking new clip from Jim Jarmusch’s toothy tale of lust and vampires, Only Lovers Left Alive, is here just in time for the film's premiere at next year's Sundance Film Festival so crank it up and dance along!
Only Lovers Left Alive stars Tilda Swinton as Eve, a grungy but erudite vampire who's married to a forlorn vampire musician, Adam, played by Tom Hiddleston. Several-hundred-year-old Adam (of Biblical fame) has been living quite happily ever since being expelled from the Garden of Eden--that is, until the 21st century came along with its excesses and greed and pushed him into a full-flung existential crisis. He cracks and orders a wooden bullet to kill himself.
Adam and Eve are not about blood-sucking and murder but are refined lovers of literature, science, music, and learning in general. When Eve's estranged sister (Mia Wasikowska) "drinks" Ian, a friend, to death, Eve tells her off, »

Although not part of the “Midnight” selection, Only Lovers Left Alive is a new vampire movie that stars Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, Anton Yelchin and Jeffrey Wright, and it will be playing at Sundance next month. Here’s a brand new clip for you to check out:
Previously: “Sony Pictures Classics announced today that they have acquired all North American rights to Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive, which will have its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival tomorrow in the In Competition section. The film was produced by Jeremy Thomas of Recorded Picture Company and Reinhard Brundig of Pandora Film. Christos Konstantakopoulos of Fairilo House served as executive producer.
Starring Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, Anton Yelchin and Jeffrey Wright, Only Lovers Left Alive takes place against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier and follows an underground musician, deeply »

Not too long ago, we posted a review of the new Jim Jarmusch movie Only Lovers Left Alive, in which Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton play emaciated vampire lovers. The review written by our very own Tom Stoup wasn’t favourable to the film stating, “Jim Jarmusch does not intend to analyze questions but simply to put ideas out there, and as a result, his product ultimately feels lackadaisical and aimless”. It’s hard to believe the director of Down By Law, Ghost Dog and Dead Man (to name a few), could so greatly disappoint, especially while working with such an incredible cast. I still haven’t seen Only Lovers Left Alive, but despite Tom’s negative review, this new clip featuring Hiddleston and Swinton dancing to Denise La Salle’s “Trapped By A Thing Called Love,” has me very excited. Watch the clip below.

Over the course of the last month or so, it has been interesting to read different opinions about what would (or should) premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. From those articles, I culled a list of films that I really wanted to see on the Sundance program slate for 2014. Surprisingly, almost all of the films on my personal list will be screening at Sundance, including Joe Swanberg's Happy Christmas, Kat Candler's Hellion, the Zellner Brothers' Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter, Jeffrey Radice's No No: A Dockumentary / U.S.A., Andrew Droz Palermo and Tracy Droz Tragos' Rich Hill, Stuart Murdoch's God Help the Girl, Tessa Louise-Salomé's Mr leos caraX, Madeleine Olnek's The Foxy Merkins, Ana Lily Amirpour's A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, Martha Stephens and Aaron Katz's Land Ho!, Alex Ross Perry's Listen Up Philip, Michael Tully's Ping Pong Summer, »

I had a hunch that Cooties (read here) and Adam Wingard’s The Guest (read here) might make it into what appears to be a line-up of eight (there might be some wiggle one for one last minute inclusion), but this year’s section flaunts a more international palate with the latest from Norway’s Tommy Wirkola (sequel to Dead Snow – which showed at the fest in 2009) reps Europe, Taika Waititi & Jemaine Clement return to the fest they broke out of with Eagle Vs. Shark but with a mockumentary (What We Do in the Shadows) that might compliment the inclusion of Jim Jarmusch’s latest. Oceania gets further representation with Jennifer Kent’s The Babadook and from Asia, the program assures some blood splatter with The Mo Brothers’ Killers. William Eubank arrives with a title that might sound familiar for those who hit the fest in 2007, but this version of »

Take a break from checking for flight prices, packing your bags and figuring out who's gonna walk your dog: the folks at the Sundance Film Festival have added to the first wave of titles announced yesterday. For those looking to get to some of the stellar festival entries of the past year, the Spotlight section won't disappoint: Richard Ayoade's "The Double," Jim Jarmusch's "Only Lovers Left Alive" (which we saw at Nyff), the Tom Hardy starring "Locke" (we already reviewed in Venice) and the acclaimed "Stranger By The Lake" (our review from Cannes) are putting on parkas and heading to Utah. Meanwhile, the Midnight lineup will see Tommy Wirkola's unasked for "Dead Snow: Red Vs. Dead," Adam Wingard's "The Guest," and more promising to raise your pulse and bring thrills, blood and more. Meanwhile, New Frontier Films brings Joseph Gordon-Levitt back with "Hit Record On TV, »

A day after unveiling the films in competition, the Sundance Institute today announced the films playing in the Spotlight, Park City at Midnight, New Frontier and Sundance Kids sections of the event. This year's Spotlight lineup includes Jim Jarmusch's beloved "Only Lovers Left Alive," the acclaimed French thriller "Stranger by the Lake" and Jeremy Saulnier's Cannes-winning "Blue Ruin." Highlights in the New Frontiers section include Sundance regular Joseph Gordon-Levtitt's latest online video experiment "Hit Record On TV," and "The Better Angels" starring Brit Marling and Jason Clarke.

“The Guest,” the latest effort from horror helmer Adam Wingard; “Killers,” a Web-based serial-killer thriller from Indonesia’s Mo Brothers; and “What We Do in the Shadows,” a mock-doc collaboration between New Zealand-based directors Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement (of Flight of the Conchords) are among the eight oddball titles set to make their world premieres in Park City at Midnight at the 30th annual Sundance Film Festival.
Having noted that the dramatic competition lineups (unveiled Wednesday) contained a number of films with comedic and horror-thriller elements, festival director John Cooper pointed out that the distinctions between competitive and non-competitive titles were blurring more than ever.
“We considered all the Midnight titles for competition at one point,” he said. “It’s very fluid.”

Sundance has unveiled the films selected to screen in the 2014 Sundance Film Festival out-of-competition sections Spotlight, Park City at Midnight, New Frontier and new ‘Sundance Kids’ section of films for younger audiences. The fest takes place January 16-26 in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden and Sundance, Utah. Spotlight brings back movies that the Sundance programmers have admired at other festivals around the world. It's a chance to catch up on lauded films that have been missed or still lack distribution. Of this group, we recommend Jim Jarmusch's "Only Lovers Left Alive," starring the incomparable Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston as timeless vampire lovers--and a surprisingly nasty Mia Wasikowska--as well as Ritesh Batra's four-hankie love story "The Lunchbox," an independent film starring the great Irrfan Khan that should have been India's official Oscar entry.The Park City at Midnight selection is often the primary target for acquisitions executives. »

Tommy Wirkola’s Dead Snow sequel, Adam Wingard’s The Guest and Xyz Films’ Killers from The Mo Brothers are among the Park City At Midnight line-up as festival heads also unveiled Spotlight selections and the inaugural Sundance Kids section on December 5.
The Sundance Kids strand is programmed in cooperation with Utah children and youth festival Tumbleweeds, and will premiere Ernest And Celestine starring Forest Whitaker and Lauren Bacall and Zip & Zap And The Marble Gang with Javier Gutiérrez.
“The films in the sections announced today round out our 2014 Sundance Film Festival programme and further reflect the depth and diversity of modern independent film-making that will satisfy everyone from festival fledglings to fanatics,” said director of programming Trevor Groth.
The Sundance Film Festival is set to run from January 16-26 2014 in Utah. Organisers will showcase 117 feature selections, of which 96 are world premieres, representing 37 countries and 53 first-time film-makers, including 34 in competition.

Only Jim Jarmusch could dive into the vampire genre and instead of focusing on the fangs and blood, use it to explore existential ennui, culture, humanity and, of course, music. "Only Lovers Left Alive" finds the writer/director at his wittiest in years, delivering one of his best movies, period. And a big part of that success is down to his two leads. Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton are front and center and are the heart and soul of "Only Lovers Left Alive" as two ancient vampires in a modern world. Adam has grown weary of his existence on Earth, failing to find anything to justify going on, while Eve continues to find beauty in a bleak world. Their relationship is wonderfully written stuff and the two actors are absolutely magnetic together, as evidenced in this clip where they dance to Denise La Salle's "Trapped By A Thing Called Love. »

The Gotham Independent Awards, the annual New York event that kicks off awards season, looked more like the Oscars this year — or at least the star-studded Independent Spirit Awards — with a roster of attendees that included Forest Whitaker, Ethan Hawke, Jared Leto and Shailene Woodley.
But unlike so many other awards shows intent on predicting future Oscar winners, the ceremony sponsored by Independent Filmmaker Project stayed true to its roots by honoring a batch of quirkier winners.
Joel and Ethan Coen’s “Inside Llewyn Davis,” a musical comedy starring Oscar Isaac, won best film. “Twelve Years a Slave,” which was nominated for the most (four) Gothams and is considered the Academy Awards frontrunner, was completely shut out of the gala at Manhattan’s Cipriani Wall Street. It even lost the night’s audience award to “Jake Shimabukuro: Life on Four Strings,” a little-seen documentary about a ukelele virtuoso.

Mia Wasikowska has taken part in Disney blockbusters, twisted tales from Park Chan-wook and Jim Jarmusch, and much more, but she recently saw her greatest journey yet: a trek across the Australian desert. Coming from The Painted Veil director John Curran, the project premiered on the fall festival circuit and follows the actress as Robyn Davidson, who traveled more than 1,678 [...] »

The American Midwest's spare, glum beauty is conjured in Alexander Payne's lugubrious road comedy
At the start of Nebraska, Woody Grant (Bruce Dern), confused and old, is seen slouching doggedly along a highway on the outskirts of his town. "Hey, bud, where ya headed?" asks a solicitous cop. But where can Woody possibly be headed? It takes just one look at the nondescript urban expanse; at the chimney belching out fumes in the background; at the sign reading "Billings City Limits" (that's Billings, Montana) to know he can't be going anywhere special. This is the back of beyond, right? And Woody's surely on the proverbial Road to Nowhere.
In fact, Woody is determined to get to Lincoln, Nebraska, where he's convinced that a million dollars are his for the claiming. It's usual in American cinema to assume that areas such as the stretch between Billings and Lincoln, some 800 miles away, »
