Double Oscar-nominee John Malkovich will be honored for his life's work with the Golden Eye award at this year's Zurich International Film Festival. Malkovich's career stretches back nearly three decades and has included everything from the acclaimed period drama Dangerous Liaisons (1988) to action thrillers In the Line of Fire (1993), Con Air (1997) and the Red franchise to the self-referential dramedy of Spike Jonze's Being John Malkovich in 1999.

John Malkovich will head to Zurich later this week to present his latest film and receive the festival’s Golden Eye award.
The star of Dangerous Liaisons, Red and Being John Malkovich will be in town on Saturday (Oct 4) to introduce thriller Cut Bank, which receives a gala premiere screening at the Zurich Film Festival, alongside director Matt Shakman.
The honorary Golden Eye award will be presented later that evening on the festival’s award night at Zurich’s Opera House. Malkovich will accept the honour from German actress Veronika Ferres - his co-star in The Casanova Variations.
Cut Bank, which played at Toronto and receives its European premiere in Zurich, centres on a young man played by Liam Hemsworth who dreams of escaping his small town. But his efforts to do so set a deadly series of events in motion. The film also stars Billy Bob Thornton and Bruce Dern.

Railing against everyday Muslims for the crimes of extremists is like screaming at kids kicking a ball because of your (justifiable) hatred of Fifa, as one Sbs program shows
Are you terrified? I am. I just punched a moth because I thought it might have been a terrorist in moth costume. Are you scared? Its now become easier for me to point out the few square millimetres of my trousers that havent been pebble-dashed by the excrement this government has been conjuring forth.
With the high terror alert, and increasingly draconian security laws, this has become the uniform of Team Australia: The Excremental Pantaloons of Fear (or was that a Harry Potter book?). The only way George Brandis could make the coalition any scarier would be to hire a clown in running make-up to sit in on parliamentary sessions. A clown played by John Malkovich.

After years of being in limbo, a documentary by James Franco about Saturday Night Live’s creative process is finally ready to debut. The doc titled Saturday Night is available for streaming on Hulu Plus starting September 26. Filmed in 2008, the documentary was shot over the week leading up to an SNL episode hosted by John Malkovich, focusing on the show’s development and production before even appearing on TV. The film was created for Franco’s Nyu grad school assignment, meant to be no longer than seven minutes. And yet that seven-minute goal turned into a 90-minute piece Franco didn’t believe should be restricted to the classroom. "It's something I'm very proud of, and it got a great response at the festivals we took it to," Franco said in March 2013 to The Huffington Post. "I realized I had all of this access that people had never been granted before. »

Remember before Keanu Reeves was a badass in The Matrix he was that doofus in a ’80s comedy about time travel that probably isn’t as good as you remember it? You know, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure! It was totally excellent and featured life lessons to live by like “Be Excellent to Each Other” and “Party On Dudes” as eloquently delivered by Abraham Lincoln in a high school auditorium. Yeah, it was totally excellent and probably ruined your ability to pronounce “Socrates” correctly.
The film was so popular that it also got a sequel and children’s cartoon, and now 23 years in the making, people are still talking about Bill & Ted 3, even though George Carlin is dead and you’re not quite sure what happened to Alex Winter.
Now Winter has revealed additional plot details for the third film to Yahoo, saying the characters will be all-grown up and »

John Malkovich photos: How to look like a model, from Marilyn Monroe to Albert Einstein (image: John Malkovich as Marilyn Monroe in Bert Stern's 1962 portrait 'Marilyn in Pink Roses') Whether you found Spike Jonze's 1999 mind-invading comedy Being John Malkovich a pretentious bore or the most innovative motion picture since Georges Méliès' The Man with the India-Rubber Head, you'll probably enjoy Sandro Miller's series of John Malkovich photos, in which the two-time Best Supporting Actor Academy Award nominee becomes the real-life characters in some of the most celebrated (and mostly pop, U.S.-made) photographs ever taken. Malkovich's various guises will be featured in the exhibit "Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to Photographic Masters," which runs from November 7, 2014, to January 31, 2015, at the Catherine Edelman Gallery in Chicago. In Being John Malkovich, the likes of John Cusack, Cameron Diaz, and Catherine Keener discover an escape from their drab lives »

We're mourning the loss of Peter von Bagh along with countless others in the world cinema community. Many are sharing past articles on or by von Bagh. Here's Jonathan Rosenbaum's piece on the man, and his extraordinary film Helsinki, Forever:
"We’ve met at various times in Paris, London, New York, Southern California, Chicago, Helsinki, Sodankylä, and Bologna — and probably in other places as well, although these are the ones I currently remember. The first times were in Paris in the early 1970s, when he looked me up, and it must have been either in San Diego in 1977 or 1978 or in Santa Barbara between 1983 and 1987 that he convinced me to buy a multiregional Vcr. Most likely it was the latter, where I was mainly bored out of my wits apart from my pastime of taping movies from cable TV, and Peter maintained that if we started swapping films through the mail, »
Malkovich, Malkovich Malkovich Malkovich. Malkovich Malkovich Malkovich? Malkovich Malkovich Malkovich! You get what I’m saying, right?
According to Spike Jonze’s film Being John Malkovich, if John Malkovich enters the mind of John Malkovich, well, all he’d see and hear is Malkovich. Commercial photographer Sandro Miller can offer you half that experience with his art series “Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to Photographic,” sans the magic portal.
Collaborating with the actor himself, Miller pays homage to the photographers who influenced him with this photo series that places Malkovich into classic images. The photo tributes are superbly executed recreations that are oddly and increasingly fascinating yet totally fun. We’ve included some of our favorites above and below (I'm now fully convinced Malkovich would make an amazing Joker), and you can check out the whole exhibit and get pricing here. (Hat tip: MTV)

Cool film stuff can be almost as fun as actually going to the movies. Think of a Batman cape, an Arnold Schwarzenegger action figure, or Goldeneye on the N64. Hell, the merchandising can often be more enjoyable than the actual film – remember how much fun the first few months of 1999 were before Star Wars: The Phantom Menace was actually released?
Yet, in the chase to make a quick buck out of devoted fans, some... let's just say less relevant, movie merchandise is churned out and flogged to the public.
Here then are 50 of the strangest (not ranked in order!) – expect action figures of obscure henchmen, 16-carat gold Twilight jewellery and some truly vomit-inducing burgers…

Fifteen years after Spike Jonze pondered what would happen if people were given a chance to view the world through the eyes of John Malkovich in the cult-classic Being John Malkovich, another artist has wondered, What if everyone were Malkovich? And the results are rather hypnotic to look at. Photographer Sandro Miller, who's also a friend of the actor, has recreated a number of iconic portraits using Malkovich's famous (and yet shockingly chameleonic) face in every single one. He casts Malkovich as everyone from Albert Einstein and Alfred Hitchcock to the woman in Dorothea Lange's most famous work, "Migrant Mother" and both of the little girls in Diane Arbus' »

Back in December of 2008, James Franco filmed a behind-the-scenes Saturday Night Live documentary, focusing on the week leading up to an episode hosted by actor John Malkovich. Originally intended to be a seven-minute short for an Nyu grad school assignment, the doc blossomed into a 90-minute film that screened to critical acclaim at the South by Southwest and Tribeca film festivals in 2010. While the project has been in studio limbo for the past few years, Franco has finally found a home for the documentary on Hulu Plus, where it will stream starting this Friday, »

Remember James Franco's SNL documentary? You know, the one where he got unprecedented access and made a movie of what it's like to put on the show in a given week. He shot the thing nearly five years ago (during the week surrounding the John Malkovich episode) and brought it to festivals over four years ago, but, for a variety of reasons, it never got released. Well, Franco's Instagram reports the doc is actually going to come out this Friday on Hulu Plus. He must've gotten really excited by reading all our Streaming Week content. »

Being John Malkovich? How about John Malkovich being others? In photographer Sandro Miller's series Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to Photographic Masters, the actor transforms himself in order to re-create some of history's greatest portraits. In the words of Miller, "John is the most brilliant, prolific person I know. His genius is unparalleled. I can suggest a mood or an idea, and within moments he literally morphs into the character right in front of my eyes. He is so trusting of my work and our process. . . . I'm truly blessed to have him as my friend and collaborator." John is practically unrecognizable in many of the photos, embodying great actors, artists, and cultural figures - from John Lennon to Jean Paul Gaultier - all in the name of art.
