Review: "The Graduate" (1967) Starring Anne Bancroft And Dustin Hoffman; Criterion Blu-ray Special Edition

8 February 2016 3:34 AM, PST | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

“Jesus Loves You More Than You Will Know”

By Raymond Benson

Although it has been released before on Blu-ray, the “Criterion treatment” is always welcome for a classic, well-known film such as The Graduate. Quite simply, it’s one of the most beloved pictures of the 60s, one that hit a nerve in the public consciousness. It helped define those wildly changing years at the end of the decade, illustrating how the country’s youth rebelled against an established society that they were expected to join. The Graduate is a landmark of the New Hollywood movement that took over the studios in those years and held reign through the 70s.

Director Mike Nichols, fresh from his success as a debut helmsman for Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966), gave us a romantic comedy unlike anything we’d seen previously—mainly because of the radically daring casting of an unknown actor named Dustin Hoffman. »

Chandor’s next project, Triple Frontier. Chandor’s follow-up to the 2014 morality play A Most Violent Year its title refers to the real-life border zone between Paraguay, Argentina, and Brazil where crime has thrived in the absence of law enforcement.

Universal, See-Saw Plan Mary Magdalene Biopic

21 January 2016 7:28 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Universal Pictures International Productions and See-Saw Films are teaming up for a currently untitled biopic of Mary Magdalene. The aim is to deliver a humanistic portrait of the enigmatic and misunderstood devoted follower of Jesus Christ who is believed to have witnessed both his crucifixion and resurrection.

Mary Magdalene developed a reputation as being a repentant prostitute during the Middle Ages, despite none of the Gospels supporting that claim. The likes of Barbara Hershey, Anne Bancroft and Monica Bellucci have played the role on film and TV productions.

Garth Davis ("Top of the Lake," "Lion") will direct the new movie from a script by Helen Edmundson & Philippa Goslett, while "The King's Speech" duo of Iain Canning and Emile Sherman will produce. Shooting kicks off this summer ahead of a 2017 release.

What’s funnier than men dressing in drag? Depends on who you ask. It’s Billy Wilder again with a fictional story of two musicians – Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) – who witness the St. Valentine’s Day massacre in Chicago and leave town. But, since the mob has ties everywhere, they need to disguise themselves as best they can: as women in an »
