Michael Douglas Just Getting Started with Career Achievement Honor

10 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Following in the footsteps of such previous career achievement honorees as Robert De Niro, Robert Redford, Kevin Costner, Susan Sarandon and Sharon Stone, Michael Douglas is being recognized “for the longevity of his career, the quality of his achievements, and his overall striving for excellence,” says Aarp’s Robert Love. “He’s also a great activist and well-known as an all-around good guy.”

Ironically, in a career spanning more than 50 years, the actor-producer and Oscar winner has enjoyed his biggest successes embodying bad guys, anti-heroes and jerks. And even a short list of his greatest hits — “Wall Street,” for which he won the lead actor Oscar, “Fatal Attraction,” “Basic Instinct,” “The War of the Roses” and “Disclosure” — reveals just how good he’s been at it.

The actor, who’s always had a gift for playing ethically challenged and morally ambiguous characters, fully inhabited the reptilian Gordon Gekko — his most iconic role, »

6 February 2016 3:07 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'A Beautiful Mind' with Russell Crowe. '31 Days of Oscar' on TCM: 'The Wind and the Lion,' 'The Man Who Would Be King' Turner Classic Movies' “31 Days of Oscar” continues on Saturday, Feb. 6, '16, with more recent fare – as in, several films released in the last four decades. Among these are The Wind and the Lion, The Man Who Would Be King, A Beautiful Mind, Swing Shift, and Broadcast News. John Milius' The Wind and the Lion and John Huston's The Man Who Would Be King are both 1975 releases featuring “Westerners” (i.e., white people) stranded in “exotic” and potentially dangerous locales (i.e., places inhabited by dark-skinned non-Christians) in the distant past: the former in early 20th century Morocco; the latter in a remote region in colonial India in the late 19th century. (That particular area, Kafiristan, is located in today's Afghanistan.) The thematic similarities between the two films end there, »

Oscars 2017? Star-Turned-Director Nate Parker on How His Bold Movie About Slavery Birth of a Nation Became a 'Miracle' Success

3 February 2016 2:15 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Maybe he thrilled you as the brilliant Henry Lowe in 2007's The Great Debaters, or commanded your attention as Jimmy Grant, the emotional center of 2012's Arbitrage. Or, you might've lusted after him as Kaz, the police officer steaming up the screen with Gugu Mbatha-Raw in Beyond the Lights. Chances are, you know Nate Parker for his incredible onscreen presence. Wait till you hear what he's been doing behind the scenes.

Kelly Reichardt’s Certain Women Leads Eric Lavallee’s 2016 Sundance Film Fest Top Ten

3 February 2016 9:10 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

With a decent sized sampling of thirty-one features and several four star quality shorts viewed, my assessment of the ’16 edition is as follows: the Premieres category delivered in terms of A quality offerings, the U.S Dramatic Comp had far more “misses” than “hits”, and there is plenty to be excited about from the micro indie auteurs found from the bountiful Next section. To further recognize this section’s importance and cred, I’d definitely create a jury award to go alongside the Audience award — perhaps the composition of that jury could follow the free-thinking artist matching they promote for their Sundance Next Fest. And speaking of the jury folk — I’m a little dismayed that a conventional film such as The Birth of a Nation took precedence over a technically sound, risk-taker film such as Christine. Change appears to be in the air, with Robert Redford contemplating the future »

Truth Starring Cate Blanchett on Blu-ray and DVD Today

2 February 2016 2:46 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

If there ever were a single event that established the internet as a counter to a highly biased press, it was Dan Rather’s blatant attempt in 2004 to fix an election using phony documentation. It’s been well documented that 60 Minutes Producer Mary Mapes and Rather wanted a “gotcha” story so they ignored journalistic standards to produce one. And they might have gotten away with it (and in an earlier day they would have), except we had entered the Internet age where almost anyone at home could check the facts and documents. That’s what happened and the story quickly fell apart. They got caught lying and fabricating evidence and were drummed out of the mainstream media. That would make an interesting movie rather than Truth, an attempt to make cheaters look like they were doing something noble.

Yet some critics liked the film. Cate Marquis here at We Are »

How Sundance will factor into next year's Academy Awards

1 February 2016 5:39 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The independent film festival has long served a launchpad for future Oscar winners – and this year’s edition is sure to prove no different

It might seem crass to discuss next year’s Oscars ahead of this year’s, which have been mired in controversy after – for the second year in a row – no actors of color were nominated. But thanks to the 2016 Sundance film festival, which wrapped on Sunday, there’s simply no avoiding the discussion.

The Park City event, founded by Robert Redford, has long served as a launchpad for future Oscar players (and in many cases, winners). In 1989, Steven Soderbergh’s sex, lies and videotape netted the audience award, receiving an Oscar nomination for best original screenplay a year later and months after winning the Palme d’Or at Cannes. In the years since, Sundance smashes such as Precious, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Fruitvale Station, Whiplash, »

Sundance Norman Lear Doc 'Just Another Version of You' Goes to Netflix and Music Box (Lena Dunham Video)

29 January 2016 3:45 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Opening night at Sundance brought yet another high-profile world premiere documentary introduced by Robert Redford. Last year it was current Oscar nominee Liz Garbus's "What Happened, Miss Simone?," which was released by Netflix. This year it was Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady's "Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You," which will air on PBS's "American Masters" this fall and may wind up in the Oscar race as well. PBS' imprint American Masters Pictures and Music Box Films will release the film theatrically, while Netflix has exclusive subscription streaming for Us and Canada. Norman Lear "brought humanity, edge, humor and vulnerability into the mainstream," said Redford. "We owe him a great debt for that." Redford also thanked Lear for his early support of the struggling Sundance festival. The 93-year-old Lear, wearing his trademark cap, knew from his first meeting with Ewing and Grady that "these kids were a force, »

10 Should’ve-Been Hits Recommended From Sundance’s Recent Past

29 January 2016 1:21 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

For every movie like Little Miss Sunshine or Whiplash that explodes at Sundance en route to becoming an Oscar-winning pop-culture phenomenon, there are dozens of great movies that had warm openings at Sundance but didn't connect with audiences like they should have, for whatever reason. Thankfully, the commercial reception a lot of Sundance movies receive outside of the supportive confines of Robert Redford’s brainchild leaves us with a lot sleepers just waiting to be discovered and embraced. With that in mind, and with Sundance wrapping up this weekend, here are ten terrific movies from the last ten years of Sundance that should have reached wider audiences but did not. Name recognition be damned, we encourage you to give 'em a try.1. The Foot Fist Way (2006)Will Ferrell and Adam McKay were prominent early supporters and advocates for The Foot Fist Way, and their relationship with the movie's writers and »

Jack White, Avett Brothers Premiere 'American Epic' Doc at Sundance 2016

29 January 2016 9:48 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Jack White knows which direction his obsessions with American folk, blues and country steered him as an artist. "When you get back to Howlin' Wolf, Charley Patton, Robert Johnson – it basically begins there, and that's the best it ever was and the best it's ever going to be," White declared Thursday night onstage at the Sundance Film Festival, following a preview of the ambitious six-hour American Epic documentary series for PBS.

Along with Sundance founder Robert Redford, White and producer/musician T Bone Burnett are executive producers of American Epic, »

New to Streaming: ‘The Assassin,’ ‘Crimson Peak,’ ‘Hearts Of Darkness,’ and More

29 January 2016 9:27 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit the interwebs. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

The Assassin (Hou Hsiao-Hsien)

If the meditative stylings of Russian auteur Andrei Tarkovsky were applied to the martial arts genre, the end result would likely resemble Hou Hsiao-hsien’s rapturous tone poem The Assassin. As much concerned with the essence of nature as it is the essence of humanity, this endlessly beautiful film is equal parts enigmatic storytelling as it is purely enthralling cinema. Though »

Is Sundance Too Big for its Own Good? Founder Robert Redford Proposes Big Changes

28 January 2016 9:19 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Between the record-breaking deal for Nate Parker's "The Birth of a Nation" and many other multi-million dollar purchases, including the $10 million Amazon paid for "Manchester By the Sea," there's no doubt this year's festival is Sundance's biggest yet. But it's not just the films that are getting bigger and selling for more, and according to festival founder Robert Redford, Sundance might be getting too big for its own good. Speaking to the Associated Press earlier this week, Redford laid out some of the challenges Sundance faced this year and outlined some big changes that may happen moving forward. Read More: The Best Things Robert Redford Said on the Opening Day of Sundance 2016 "I'm starting to hear some negative comments about how crowded it is and how difficult it is to get from venue to venue when there is traffic and there are people in the streets and so forth, »

Sundance Buzz Pt 2: Certain Women, The Intervention, Christine, More...

26 January 2016 6:57 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Robert Redford wanted this Sundance season to be about diversity of voices and young voices, too. We covered some of that in the last buzz installment but this here's installment of buzz is mostly about women. Well, and Logan Lerman. He's one of many stars hoping to up their game and thus career by way of indie drama success. That is a quick way to up your cred as an actor -- look what it's done for Kristen Stewart recently -- but its weird that it works so well to keep careers going since box office is so rarely part of the equation. At least for festival pick-ups in the increasingly fragmented post-festival market. Do you go video on demand, streaming, theaters, or some weird ass combo of both?

The trick for actors is being great in a movie and also lucking out and having that movie around you be »
