Film Review: ‘Between Sea and Land’

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

An intriguing glimpse into the lives of those who dwell off Colombia’s Caribbean coast comes wrapped in a sentimental mother-son love story in the artlessly affecting “Between Sea and Land.” Fronted by Manolo Cruz’s powerfully immobile performance as a young man with a neurological disorder, Carlos Del Castillo’s directing debut carries the viewer along with its stirring emotional directness and a rich, unusual sense of place — qualities that just about prevail over the film’s less-than-polished assembly and a climax that, for all its tearjerking potency, concludes matters on an abrupt and rather too easy note. Still, it’s no surprise that the film came away with the audience award from Sundance’s World Cinema dramatic competition; further festival berths are assured, as are offshore arthouse slots.

In addition to playing the lead role, Cruz is credited with the screenplay and the original idea for the film, »

10 February 2016 1:02 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For years, a cinematic rendition of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower has languished on the brink of development, fast becoming one of the more prominent white whales that continually ducks out of sight before Warner Bros. can wrangle it into production.

In that time, a string of writers have come and gone, with the most recent development securing Akiva Goldsman and Jeff Pinker for the gig. As for the other side of the lens, things have proven tricky.

More News From The Web

From Javier Bardem and Russell Crowe to Breaking Bad fan-favorite Aaron Paul, numerous actors have flirted with a role in Warner’s genre epic; however, according to King himself, it is Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey that are closest to sealing a deal for The Dark Tower. Speaking with The Rolling Stone, the author remained coy about the specifics, simply saying that the adaptation is “more »

Madrid – “Truman,” Cesc Gay’s friendship dramedy, produced by Marta Esteban, topped Spain’s 30th Spanish Academy Goya Awards Saturday night sweeping picture, director, actor (Ricardo Darin), supporting actor (Camara), original screenplay (Gay and Tomas Aragay), kudos ceremony that lived up to its status as the widest open of recent years, spreading its plaudits widely.

True or super true: Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem are the world's most beautiful couple. The gorgeous Spanish pair stepped out together for the black-tie Goya Cinema Awards in Madrid on Saturday night. The Zoolander 2 star looked stunning in a floor-length black strapless gown with silver detailing, while her handsome husband wore a black tuxedo and bowtie, which he paired with a crisp white shirt and black shoes. Cruz, 41, and Bardem, 46, usually try to avoid the limelight, but at the end of 2015, the couple hopped onstage during a U2 concert in Barcelona and hammed it up with Bono and company. »

Regression Is a Disappointing Genre Exercise From the Great Alejandro Amenabar

6 February 2016 2:01 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Hey, remember Alejandro Amenabar? For certain viewers, the Spanish director seemed well on his way to becoming one of the great saviors of genre cinema in the late 1990s and early 2000s — the kind of guy who could take otherwise tired horror and science-fiction concepts and give them new life. His breakthrough 1997 hit Open Your Eyes (remade — inferiorly — by Cameron Crowe as Vanilla Sky), offered a mind-fuck psychological sci-fi thriller that was actually moving and not cheap and manipulative. His Nicole Kidman–starring classic The Others was the rare big-twist horror hit that actually improved upon second viewing. Later, the stylized quadriplegic drama The Sea Inside won an Oscar and firmly established Javier Bardem as one of the finest actors of his generation. His last film was 2009’s Agora, an expensive historical drama that dared to suggest the ancient world’s shift towards Christianity wasn’t necessarily the greatest thing »

No one can agree on the top 5 greatest Coen Brothers films

4 February 2016 9:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As we began talking about editorial content we could publish to celebrate the release of Hail, Caesar!, the latest film from Joel and Ethan Coen, we realized that none of us had the same top five lists, and that it seems unusual for that to be the case. The Coens have had such a rich and varied career that it is impossible to pin them down to one style or one theme or one type of storytelling. Some people love their comedies. Some people love it when they get dark. Some people love the underdogs, the least-liked of their films. But what's clear is that every film they've made has its fans, and even their worst films are beloved by someone. There are few artists like the Coen Brothers, and we were delighted to get lists from each of our special guest contributors this time. The diversity of the replies »

How the Coen Brothers Survived Hollywood and Lived to Make ‘Hail, Caesar!’

3 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Coen brothers are just as quirky as the characters from their movies. Just ask Josh Brolin, who has collaborated three times with the writer-directors, including on the upcoming “Hail, Caesar!” He recalls meeting the brothers on his “No Country for Old Men” audition, and not knowing what to do with the awkward silences. “Joel was intimidating,” Brolin says. “He didn’t say anything.” Months later, he was having dinner with Ethan, and noticed his friend continually glancing at his lap. “I looked down,” Brolin says. “He had been reading a book under the table. I was like, ‘Come on!’ ”

In this age of Twitter and Instagram, the directors of such beloved classics as “The Big Lebowski,” “Blood Simple” and “Raising Arizona” are still fairly private — and awkward with press interviews. Although they grew up together making films on their Super 8 cameras in Minnesota, »

This Villain Was Scientifically Determined to Be the Most Realistic Movie Psychopath

2 February 2016 6:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Are all villains in movies psychopaths? No. But are all serial killers in movies psychopaths? That's also no, as revealed by an actual scientific study of 400 movies released over the past century. Led by a professor in Belgium, the examination of psychopathy in cinema lasted three years and resulted in a final list of 126 characters (105 of them male) that qualified for the diagnosis. You can read the whole report in the latest issue of the Journal of Forensic Sciences. But here is a summary of some of its findings, via Tech Insider: Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem) of No Country For Old Men was determined to be the most realistic psychopath ever to hit the big screen, because "he seems to be effectively invulnerable and resistant to any form of emotion or...

The first decade and a half of the 21st century has brought a lot of changes to the landscape of film. The advancement and sophistication of computers has made realistic computer generated effects a mainstay in both big-budget and small-budget films. The internet and streaming technologies have given big Hollywood new competition in films produced independently and by non-traditional means. We went from purchasing films on yards of tape to plastic disks, and now we can simply upload them to the cloud. Advertisements for films have reached a higher, more ruthless level where generating hype through trailers and teasers is crucial for a film’s commercial success. Movie attendance has fluctuated along with the economy, but that hasn »

Johnny Depp Heading To J.C. Chandor's 'Triple Frontier,' Tom Hanks Offered Role, Will Smith Moves On

20 January 2016 6:47 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Sometimes, there is a script so good, that no matter the delays or bumps in the road, everyone wants to be a part of it. And that has been the case for "Triple Frontier." A project that was long brewing as a film for Kathryn Bigelow, at one time actors Tom Hanks, Johnny Depp, Sean Penn, Will Smith, Javier Bardem and Christian Bale were all in the mix for various roles. The Bigelow iteration of the movie never came together, and she has since moved on to focus on her developing Bowe Bergdahl movie, but last summer "A Most Violent Year" and "All Is Lost" director J.C. Chandor signed up, and Hanks and Smith were both said to be circling. Instead, another actor has become the first A-list name to get seriously involved.
