Legendary Producer Turns To Kickstarter To Fund Post-Production of His Directional Debut

5 July 2016 2:11 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Back in April, producer Ben Barenholtz announced that he would be making his feature film directorial debut with “Alina.” Now, the 80-year-old legend has completed principal photography on the movie and has created a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the project’s post-production. 

Alina,” also written by Barenholtz, stars award-winning actress Darya Ekamasova as a Russian woman who goes to New York in search of the father she never met.

“Principal photography has been completed with a fantastic cast and crew,” says the helmer on the Kickstarter page. “I am now in the editing process and I think I have a good film but I won’t know how good it is until we finish post-production. And I need your help to do that.”

"Something can always go wrong..." Janus Films has unveiled a trailer for the upcoming restored re-release of the Coen Brothers' first film, Blood Simple, which first hit theaters in 1985 - 31 years ago.

The film stars Dan Hedaya, Frances McDormand, John Getz, M. Emmet Walsh and Samm-Art Williams. Along with the trailer, there's a flashy poster (seen below) to compliment the re-release. Those who haven't seen this classic crime film yet, this is a perfect opportunity to catch it on the big screen. Enjoy.

Return to Joel and Ethan Coen’s ‘Blood Simple’ In Trailer for Janus Films’ Restoration

29 June 2016 10:22 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If few recent Criterion announcements earned as much excitement as Blood Simple, perhaps it’s because Blood Simple inspires more widespread excitement than any other debut from the last 30-or-so years. Having seen Janus’ restoration for myself, I can confirm that this is a very fine treatment for a very fine film, capturing the low-budget charms of Joel and Ethan Coen‘s early days without compromising our desire for a proper high-definition treatment. In other words: “worth the hubbub.”

Blood Simple will receive a small theatrical rollout this July, starting at New York’s Film Forum, and so there’s now a trailer to give some small taste of what Janus has been up to. It may not offer quite the discovery of a Bruce Campbell-led test run, but a fresh coat of paint does the eyes well. Otherwise, as the indelible Four Tops tune that graces both picture and preview will tell you, »

Jessica's Long Journey to that Triple Crown

24 June 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

With only three performances remaining in Broadway's Long Day's Journey Into Night which closes this Sunday, here's Eric to talk Jessica Lange's long and awards-full career.

Jessica Lange recently became the 22nd actor to complete the official Triple Crown of Acting (performers who have won competitive Oscar, Tony, and Emmy Awards - full list prior to Jessica).  It’s an exciting moment in time, as winning the big three isn’t easy. 

Ten of her Triple Crown peers are still alive and all working to one degree or another:  Rita Moreno, Jeremy Irons, Vanessa Redgrave, Maggie Smith, Al Pacino, Geoffrey Rush, Ellen Burstyn, Christopher Plummer, Helen Mirren, and Frances McDormand.  All of these actors have had decades-long success and still get enough offers for splashy roles that it’s not inconceivable that almost any of them could win another late-career major award.

As it stands, of all the 22 current Triple Crown winners, »

Happy Birthday, Frances McDormand

23 June 2016 5:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Kieran, here. There are certain actors whose absence would create a huge void in cinema. It’s not always the movie stars, despite their merits. It’s often the character actors. The beautiful, interesting, wholly human faces that populate our films, only semi-regularly leaping forward to truly headline a vehicle, but still remaining a vital part of the movies we love. Few actors working today embody this more fully than the wondrously versatile, endlessly watchable Frances McDormand whose entry into the world we celebrate today.

What’s your favorite Frances McDormand performance? Okay...that’s a rhetorical question. We all know what it is. But her filmography is diverse and fascinating to explore, who what's your #2?

Frances McDormand’s 5 Best Movie Performances

 5. Burn After Reading (2008)

Broad, but undeniably funny and completely understanding the tone of the vehicle. Mileage varies in terms of McDormand’s many outings with the Coen Brothers, »

Kieslowski, ‘Cat People,’ and the Coen Brothers Lead The Criterion Collection’s September Line-Up

16 June 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

September tends to be the time of year that movie studios start busting out the big guns, and 2016 finds the Criterion Collection following suit, as the boutique home video label will be releasing one of the most significant cinematic landmarks on which they’ve yet to put their stamp.

Krzysztof Kieślowski’s mammoth “Dekalog” makes the company’s September lineup something of a bumper crop in and of itself, but — lucky for us — it’ll be accompanied by an essential Kenji Mizoguchi classic, two ample doses of Jacqueline Susann-inspired campiness, some old school Coen brothers and much more. Check out the full release slate below, listed in rough order of our excitement for each title.

1.) “Dekalog” (dir. Krzysztof Kieślowski, 1988), Spine #837

This would be at the very top of the list regardless of what else Criterion is releasing in September. One of the greatest achievements in all of film (though »

Lena Dunham Fools and Schools Jimmy Fallon During ‘Box of Lies’ Game (Video)

15 June 2016 8:52 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Lena Dunham fooled, then schooled, Jimmy Fallon during a game of “Box of Lies” on “The Tonight Show” Tuesday night. It was a close game between the “Girls” actress and the talk show host at first. Dunham’s first box contained a picture of Leonardo DiCaprio labeled as Frances McDormand, but Dunham described it as “a banana, but it has Sideshow Bob hair applied to the top of it, googly eyes and a little hole has been cut where a raisin has been placed as a nose. I can’t make this up.” Fallon called her bluff and grabbed a »

TV Movie and Limited Series Actor Nominees Could Line Up With Oscars

9 June 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When it came to the lead acting races in last year’s limited series or movie category, the women mounted an impressive lineup. Three Academy Award winners (Frances McDormand, Jessica Lange, and Emma Thompson) and three Oscar nominees (Maggie Gyllenhaal, Queen Latifah, and Felicity Huffman) competed for the top prize, which went to McDormand for “Olive Kitteridge.”

This year, it looks to be the men’s turn, with a surprising number of Oscar nominees and winners eligible in the category, along with some big-name star power flexing its muscles. Academy Award winners in the running for lead actor include Anthony Hopkins (“The Dresser”), Cuba Gooding Jr. (“The People V. O.J. Simpson”), Richard Dreyfuss (“Madoff”), and Timothy Hutton (“American Crime”).

They will face considerable competition from Oscar nominees like Benedict Cumberbatch, who has already won an Emmy for his role in “Sherlock,” and Ian McKellen, who goes head-to-head with Hopkins in “The Dresser. »

George Clooney and the Coen brothers look to have wrapped up their unofficial American Idiot trilogy with the release of Burn After Reading in 2008, but low and behold, when Joel and Ethan Coen came knocking seven years later, Clooney answered the call to headline Hail, Caesar! as dim-witted Hollywood superstar, Baird Whitlock.

2016 Emmy Predictions: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or a Movie

15 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Quick Hits• Last Year's Winner: Frances McDormand, "Olive Kitteridge" • Was It an Upset? No• Still Eligible? No• Hot Streak: Other than citing "American Horror Story's" four straight years of nods (with one win for Jessica Lange in 2014), there isn't much of a streak to speak of. So, instead, let's just remember when Meryl Streep won for her landmark performance in "Angels in America" (and hope someone, someday — even if it's Meryl herself — can ascend to such heights again).• Fun Fact: None other than Helen Mirren has the most nominations (10!) and wins (4!) in this category.  In our new era of anthology series, the acting categories for Outstanding Limited Series or a Movie no longer get complete makeovers every year. Yet even though a few other categories will see plenty of old faces, the group of Lead Actress contenders will likely be all but one newbie. The only person nominated from last year who can get. »
