SXSW 2015 Film Review

complete coverage of the SXSW Film Festival 2015

The Overnight

Director/Screenwriter: Patrick Brice

Two families meet at the park and set up a playdate that has unexpected outcomes for all. Cast: Adam Scott, Jason Schwartzman, Taylor Schilling, Judith Godrèche. (film synopsis from sxsw.com)

Overall

It’s hilarious. The boundaries of bromance, marriage, friendship and even penis comedy are pushed to a very funny limit with this film. It’s great to see Schilling doing great work outside of “Orange is the New Black.”

Final Score: 8/10

 

Manglehorn

Reclusive small town locksmith, A.J. Manglehorn, who has never recovered from his losing his true love embarks on a new tenuous relationship with a local woman he meets at the bank. Cast: Al Pacino, Holly Hunter, Harmony Korine, Chris Messina. (U.S. Premiere)

'Broad City' Star Abbi Jacobson Teases Season Finale, Reveals Dream Guest Star

17 March 2015 3:11 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Broad City, Comedy Central's brilliant webseries-turned-cable series, is closing out their sophomore season with a bang! ETonline caught up with star Abbi Jacobson (who was missing her better half Ilana Glazer) at the annual PaleyFest in Los Angeles to get the scoop on Wednesday night's season finale.

"I cannot wait for you to see this finale," Abbi gushed. "Last year it was just the two of us in a restaurant and it was sort of cinematic in a new way." This season, the finale episode promises to be just as off-the-wall and unique. "It sort of goes into another genre for a second," she added.

Watch: Kelly Ripa Gets Drunk and High in Totally Unexpected, Hilarious 'Broad City' Cameo

This season of the cult-favorite series featured some pretty incredible guest stars including Seth Rogen, Kelly Ripa and Susie Essman. But as Abbi explained, that is just the tip of the iceberg.

SXSW Film Review: ‘She’s the Best Thing in It’

16 March 2015 3:20 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“She’s the Best Thing in It” is an affectionate portrait of Mary Louise Wilson, the Tony-winning actress who’s spent more than a half-century as a highly versatile staple of the stage and screen. An infrequent directorial exercise for veteran scenarist and producer Ron Nyswaner, the docu focuses primarily on Wilson’s late-in-life first stab at teaching an acting class. The result is pleasant enough without revealing as much as probably intended about the subject’s craft or profession — or about her, period. This lightweight portrait will be best suited to broadcasters of the PBS ilk, for whom its modicum of human interest and showbiz lore will suffice.

Wilson is introduced finally winning her Tony in 2007 for the musical “Grey Gardens” — an honor she herself thinks is long overdue, given a diverse career we glimpse in a montage of stills and clips. But she ruefully reports its effect was »

2015 Emmy Predictions: Best Supporting Actor in a TV Movie/Limited Series

11 March 2015 9:49 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Bill Murray's small but wholly affecting performance in HBO miniseries "Olive Kitteridge" seems like the definite frontrunner here, potentially giving Murray his second Emmy (his first came way back in 1977 for writing "Saturday Night Live"). His primary competition is Stephen Rea ("The Honorable Woman"), Jonathan Pryce ("Wolf Hall"), Kris Kristofferson ("Texas Rising"), Michael Kenneth Williams ("Bessie") and the men of "American Horror Story: Freak Show" (namely Michael Chiklis, but our fingers are crossed for Finn Wittrock). Read More: Lisa Cholodenko on Getting Under the Skin of Frances McDormand's 'Olive Kitteridge' Below are predictions for best supporting actor in a TV movie or limited series from both Indiewire Awards Editor Peter Knegt and TV Critic Ben Travers.

2015 Emmy Predictions: Best Actress in a TV Movie/Limited Series

11 March 2015 9:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

An awesome thing about television right now is how its awards shows tend to find the female acting categories way more stacked than their male counterparts (try finding that at any given Oscars). That's certainly the case in this category, which looks to have a competitive line up of five Oscar-nominated actresses: Queen Latifah ("Bessie"), Frances McDormand ("Olive Kitteridge"), Maggie Gyllenhaal ("The Honorable Woman"), Jessica Lange ("American Horror Story: Freak Show") and Felicity Huffman ("American Crime").

Follow My Lead: Top Ten Mentors in the Movies

6 March 2015 8:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

We all would like to believe that we have that someone special to look up to for guidance and direction. From time to time we practice the art of worship for the mentor that appears larger than life to us. Whether our designated mentors that we choose to follow are inspirational or insidious it does not matter because that yearning to follow in their footsteps are so great that we blindly give anything to replicate that original blueprint.

Maybe if one dreams of being a famous astronaut you designate Neii Armstrong or John Glenn as your mentoring heroes? Perhaps your foray into film criticism was ignited by Judith Crist, Vincent Canby or Siskel & Ebert? How about emulating your favorite actor or singer and following their paths to success?

In Follow My Lead: Top Ten Mentors in the Movies we will look at some movie characters that served as  mentors to »

Trailers From Hell on 'Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day'

27 February 2015 11:00 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

A charmingly retro film recalling the screwball comedies of the 30’s and 40’s, director Bharat Nalluri’s movie covers 24 hours in the life of a bubble-brained singer (played by Amy Adams) and her prim and proper social secretary (played by Frances McDormand). The 2008 film, based on a property that had knocked around Hollywood since 1939 (when it was first offered to Universal), garnered warm critical reviews and was a (very) modest box office success. »

Watch: Broadway's Mary Louise Wilson Gets Real in Exclusive 'She's The Best Thing In It' Trailer

20 February 2015 6:29 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Screenwriter Ron Nyswaner has never shied away from the challenge of switching between different formats of storytelling, having written for film and television -- the latter of which includes credits on "Ray Donovan" and the upcoming season of "Homeland." Therefore, it doesn't come as much of a surprise that his latest venture happens to be a documentary. "She's The Best Thing In It" follows Tony-winning actress Mary Louise Wilson as she tries her hand at teaching the craft of acting to the next generation of performers. The film also features interviews with the likes of Frances McDormand and Melissa Leo, who provide additional commentary various topics related to performing. Although the trailer seems to emphasize Wilson's striking similarity -- both physically and psychologically -- to the late Elaine Stritch, who herself was the subject of a widely beloved 2013 documentary, it would be unfair to both women if we were to take their similarities for. »

Love all things Oscar? Netflix currently has more than a dozen Oscar-winning films to stream, including 12 Best Picture winners ranging from "Marty" to "The Silence of the Lambs."

For 'The Slap' Director Lisa Cholodenko, TV Is the Land of Golden Opportunity

12 February 2015 12:32 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Who says prestige series with top-drawer casts are solely the stuff of cable TV? NBC is chasing HBO-level glory with tonight's premiere of "The Slap," an eight-episode telenovela directed by Lisa Cholodenko. Cholodenko hasn't directed a feature since 2010's edgy lesbian couple comedy "The Kids Are All Right." Why? Like "Transparent" Golden Globe winner Jill Soloway, she is yet another example of a female indie director who has found better opportunities on the small screen. Last weekend, Cholodenko won a DGA Award for her devastatingly good four-part HBO miniseries "Olive Kitteridge"--which premiered at the Venice Film Festival-- starring Frances McDormand and Richard Jenkins. Women Directors Reap Directors Guild Documentary and Television Nominations Bounty Her latest TV outing "The Slap" stars Peter Sarsgaard, Uma Thurman, Thandie Newton, Zachary Quinto and Brian Cox. It is based on the 2008 Australian novel by Christos »

Soundtracking: A Valentine from Zooey Deschanel

12 February 2015 11:51 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

It’s not always easy to pin-point where the crush started, but there’s no denying that at some point nearly everyone has been in love with Zooey Deschanel.

In recent years, Deschanel has been easy to locate, appearing weekly on the small screen with “New Girl.” However, she so quietly went from the background to the spotlight that it’s hard to pinpoint when she made her first impression.

For many, that breakthrough was Cameron Crowe’s 2000 autobiopic, Almost Famous.

Her role as William Miller’s older sister/spirit guide has faded into the background of the film’s lore, eclipsed over the past 15 years in turn by Frances McDormand’s commanding motherly presence, Kate Hudson’s “band-aid” breakthrough and Philip Seymour Hoffman’s manic incarnation of Lester Bangs.

But it was actually Deschanel’s Anita that got the story in motion. She leaves home, but leaves her records »

What's New on TV, Netflix Streaming, Digital, and DVD/Blu-ray This Week: February 9 - February 15

9 February 2015 5:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.

New on DVD and Blu-ray

"Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day"

This adaptation of the beloved children's book got mixed reviews, but it's fine if you're looking for a rather harmless family feature. Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner co-star as the equally frazzled parents of young Alex (Ed Oxenbould). Check out this exclusive clip!

"Force Majeure"

They say that how you react in an emergency reveals your true nature and feelings. Are you out for number one, or is your family your first concern? A seemingly perfect Swedish family has to face that exact question when an impending avalanche threatens to ruin their ski trip to the Alps.

"Nightcrawler"

9 female movie characters who upstaged male heroes, from Speed to Skyfall

7 February 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The nominations of both Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) and Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything) established a trend in this year's selection of Best Actress at the Oscars.

Both roles initially seem secondary to the male hero in their respective films (Ben Affleck's Nick in the former, Eddie Redmayne's Stephen Hawking in the latter), but gradually come to take over the story in their own right. Here's our pick of nine further films where a heroine usurps her male counterpart.

M, Skyfall

Women usually get a raw deal in Bond films, so much so that the leads are dismissively referred to as 'Bond girls'. But the casting of Judi Dench as M from 1995's GoldenEye onwards went some way to redressing the gender balance - and by her final outing in Skyfall, she had almost become the protagonist in her own right.

A Rundown Of Buzzy Berlin Titles As Market Begins To Roll

6 February 2015 8:34 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

The halls are starting to hum softly here in Berlin as the European Film Market swings into gear. The first deals were announced yesterday before the event officially opened, with The Weinstein Co notably boarding Im Global’s The Man Who Made It Snow. This morning, FilmNation unveiled a series of offshore output deals for titles from Open Road, which will kick off with the Jamie Foxx/Michelle Monaghan-starrer Sleepless Nights.

Though it’s not likely to be a frenzy, and with currency concerns in the market internationally, Berlin should see more action in the coming days. Distributors are looking for product for 2016 and beyond, and some memorable buys have emerged here in recent years. In 2014, The Weinstein Company made a record-setting $7M deal for The Imitation Game which has now made about $140M worldwide and has an armful of Oscar nominations to boot.

Much of the pre-buy buzz »

The best award-winning films on Netflix

6 February 2015 2:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

We're knee-deep in awards season at the moment, with all the attendant speculation, drama and controversy you would expect. Who should win? Who was snubbed? Who will fall over before they reach the podium? We're looking at you, Jennifer Lawrence.

Around this time, we tend to realise the shocking number of lauded films from previous years which we still haven't seen. So here's a selection of the best award-winning films you can catch up with on Netflix:

The Godfather

Francis Ford Coppola's 1972 classic hardly needs an introduction from us. The film took three Oscars including Best Picture and Best Actor for Marlon Brando, as well as a record five Golden Globes and further nods from the Grammys, and Writers and Directors Guilds of America.

Brando's performance as mafia boss Vito Corleone is, of course, legendary, with other fantastic turns from Al Pacino, Diane Keaton, James Caan and Robert Duvall. »

SXSW Announces Their Features Lineup; Includes Feig/McCarthy's 'Spy' and Apatow's 'Trainwreck'

3 February 2015 1:50 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Amy Schumer and Bill Hader in TrainwreckPhoto: Universal Pictures With Sundance just wrapping up and Berlin starting up in a few days, we are now immersed in the year-long barrage of film festivals. One such festival in South By Southwest. A few weeks back they announced the first seven films of their program, including the opening night film Brand: A Second Coming. Today, they have revealed the rest of the features to be shown in March (except for the midnight program), and some of it has me very excited. The bigger titles announced do not do much for me. Paul Feig's Spy, starring Melissa McCarthy, and the Will Ferrell/Kevin Hart starrer Get Hard leave a lot to be desired in terms of anticipation, as does a work in progress cut of Judd Apatow's latest film Trainwreck. I'm guessing an Apatow work in progress is probably around three and a half hours. »
