DVD Review: 'We Still Kill the Old Way'

23 December 2014 3:42 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆Respect is a funny thing. In order to get a little, you have to give a little. What Sacha Bennett's sixth feature We Still Kill the Old Way (2014) stylishly and cheekily showcases the ramifications of children not seeing their way to respecting their elders. It knows when to have fun and sits easily between gritty gore and being irreverent to a fault, meanwhile the ganglands of East London have never looked more enticing. When aging gangster Charlie Archer (Steven Berkoff) is murdered by a group of hubristic criminal upstarts, led by upstart Aaron (Danny-Boy Hatchard), it is up to his brother Richie (Ian Ogilvy) to exact vengeance.

Al Pacino receives BFI Fellowship: "I'm overwhelmed"

24 September 2014 3:27 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Al Pacino has received a BFI Fellowship tonight (September 24).

The Godfather actor was given the prestigious award in honour of his achievement in film by BFI chair Greg Dyke and CEO Amanda Nevill.

"This is such a great honour... the BFI is a wonderful thing, how it keeps films alive," Pacino told the gathered crowd at the Corinthia Hotel in London.

"It's an honour to be here and receive this. I'm overwhelmed – people I've adored have received this award. I appreciate this so much, thank you."

BFI Fellowship winner John Hurt, Terry Gilliam, Richard E Grant, Joan Collins, Ian Holm and Steven Berkoff were among the stars in attendance for the gala dinner.

Pacino has earned many prestigious awards over the course of his career, including a Best Actor Oscar and two BAFTAs.

Previous recipients of the BFI Fellowship include Christopher Lee, Tim Burton, Judi Dench and Ridley Scott.

Al Pacino, Jessica Chastain & Stephen Fry Dig Into 'Salome/Wilde Salome'

22 September 2014 12:36 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Oscar Wilde's controversial play, based on the biblical story about the beheading of John the Baptist, has been a long-time obsession of Pacino's, on a par with Shakespeare's "Richard III" for the actor. But although he filmed his theatrical staging of Wilde's tragedy way back in 2006 (casting Chastain in her first feature) and his companion-piece documentary "Wilde Salomé" premiered at the 2011 Venice Film Festival (where it received mixed reviews), yesterday marked their first presentation as a double bill. Both films and the Q&A were broadcast live to dozens of cinemas across the UK and Ireland. Initially banned from the London stage for its salacious depiction of biblical characters, "Salomé" was one of Wilde's most controversial works, but the great wit's wordplay within it is rhythmic, ornate and hypnotic; it's not difficult to fathom why Pacino became smitten after seeing Steven Berkoff's famed London production in the late. »

From the press release:

Al Pacino’s Salomé and Wilde Salomé based on Oscar Wilde’s play, are to get a UK release as part of a very special event at BFI Southbank, London.

This scintillating tale of lust, greed and revenge follows the legend of King Herod and his lust for his young stepdaughter, Salomé, and her sexual baiting of John the Baptist. Wilde’s adaptation has spawned multiple stage productions including an opera by Richard Strauss, »

“They don’t write them like this any more…” Our Set Visit Report of We Still Kill the Old Way

9 June 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

“They don’t write them like this any more, they really don’t” says a grinning Ian Ogilvy, sitting back casually in his dressing room on the set of Sacha Bennett’s dark crime thriller We Still Kill the Old Way. The actor, now in his 70s, once starred alongside the likes of Meryl Streep and Bruce Willis in Death Becomes Her, and Christopher Plummer and Orson Welles in Waterloo – yet the talented performer admits that work tends to dry up, in what can be a shrewd and unforgiving business.

Men and women of my age don’t work that much any more, and in Hollywood, we work even less,” he said. “So I’ve done other things – I’ve been writing books, plays, I teach, I direct – I’ve found alternative ways of making a living. Which was lucky, because the business dries up for you. If you rely on acting at my age, »

The Tourist recap: Depp and Jolie in a pointless nearly-caper

23 March 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

With a big budget, great writers and two beautiful stars, this could have been a classic. Instead it's boring mumblefest with a rubbish twist – and it's on Channel 4 at 9pm tonight

[Warning: contains spoilers]

"This man is a tourist!" – Elise

The Tourist should have been a raging success. A sumptuous $100m Hitchcockian thriller, set in the most impossibly scenic slivers of Europe, starring two of the most intimidatingly beautiful people alive. A script by Christopher McQuarrie from The Usual Suspects and Julian Fellowes from Downton Abbey. Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, who won an Oscar for The Lives of Others, in the director's chair. What could have possibly gone wrong?

A lot, it turns out. Although blame has been assigned to everything from a constant churn of writers, directors and stars to the incredibly short production turnaround, the fact is that The Tourist is a colossal hodgepodge of wasted opportunity. Or at least »

Christopher Malcolm obituary

Actor and producer who played Brad Majors in the original Rocky Horror Show in 1973 and Saffy's gay dad in Ab Fab

Christopher Malcolm, who has died of cancer aged 67, played Brad Majors in the original production of The Rocky Horror Show in 1973 and, as his life as an actor started to overlap with an interest in producing the shows themselves, he became, after co-producing the West End revival of Rocky Horror in 1990, the executive in charge of all subsequent worldwide productions.

His death came just a few days after his latest project, the revival of Oh What a Lovely War at Stratford East, opened to enthusiastic notices, probably sealing a West End transfer. The way the show turned out was a good example of the kind of creative partnerships he enjoyed and nurtured throughout his career. For more than 30 years, he worked as an "insider" producing link between such London »

Modern Family; Horizon: The Power of the Placebo – TV review

18 February 2014 12:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Phil Dunphy is still a real man – part monster and part role model

One of the main complaints voiced by so-called men's rights activists is that in popular culture husbands and fathers are routinely portrayed as moronic incompetents. They appear to detect some sort of organised malice in this, as if Homer Simpson were the product of a conspiracy hatched by our feminist overlords.

More sensible men's advocates, meanwhile, maintain that men are still straitjacketed by old expectations, and given no room to express vulnerability, doubt, or any emotion besides anger. Masculinity, it seems, just doesn't furnish the modern male with very many acceptable ways to be.

Into this vacuum strides Phil Dunphy of Modern Family (Sky1), now returning for its fifth season. Transparently needy, caring but selfish, both a maddeningly attentive father ("Sorry," he says, "was I being proud of you too loud?") and self-professed "cool dad" (in truth, »
