Elisabeth Moss on Cracking Up, Sexism and the Peggy Strut

28 August 2015 7:35 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

It’s been a little over three months since America watched Peggy Olson strut sassily down McCann Erickson's hallway, an unlit cigarette hanging from her lips and a painting of a sexually adventurous octopus tucked under her arm. But while we've all spent our summer replaying that singularly Gif-able scene and mourning the loss of Mad Men, Elisabeth Moss has already moved on: Since wrapping the hit AMC series, she's played the titular role in The Heidi Chronicles on Broadway, and has lined up no fewer than seven movies, including »

Director David Robert Mitchell responds to Quentin Tarantino’s criticism of It Follows

28 August 2015 3:23 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In a recent interview with Vulture, director Quentin Tarantino (Django Unchained) spoke on numerous topics, including everything from his previous films to his favorite TV shows, but he also both complimented and criticized It Follows, one of 2015’s best-reviewed horror films. On Wednesday, however, It Follows writer/director David Robert Mitchell responded to Tarantino’s thoughts on the film. 

To start off, Tarantino admitted in the interview that he hasn’t seen too many films this year, but said how he “really liked” It Follows. When asked further about the film, Tarantino responded, “It was the best premise I’ve seen in a horror film in a long, long, long time. It’s one of those movies that’s so good you get mad at it for not being great.” He continued, “He could have kept his mythology straight. He broke his mythology left, right, and center.”

Tarantino’s comments must have gotten to Mitchell, »

Christopher Nolan will discuss the future of film in a special talk at BFI London Festival 2015.

The Interstellar director will sit down with artist Tacita Dean on October 9 at BFI Southbank.

The event kicks off London Film Festival's new Connects series, which will see filmmakers and industry leaders discuss the issues facing film, such as film preservation for future generations.

In particular, Nolan and Dean will focus on the importance of seeing films projected on film as an "essential part of our cultural experience", as well as discussing why the debate around film needs to change.

Dean said: "As an artist who makes and exhibits film for reasons indexical to the medium, I have had no choice but to fight to get film re-appreciated for what it is: a beautiful, robust and entirely different way of making and showing images in the gallery and in the cinema.

Watch: Julianne Moore and Ellen Page Star in Powerful ‘Freeheld’

27 August 2015 10:11 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Coming on the heels of the Supreme Court’s decision on marriage equality is a noticeable increase in the amount of Lgbt stories in mainstream entertainment. First “Fun Home” takes top honors at the Tony Awards, then film awards season frontrunners “Carol” and “Grandma” feature more strong and complicated lesbian characters. Joining Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, and Lily Tomlin in the awards race is Oscar nominee Ellen Page and last year’s leading actress Oscar winner Julianne Moore in what look to be two of the most powerful performances of the season. “Freeheld,” based on the real-life story of Ocean County cop Laurel Hester, is screenwriter Ron Nyswaner’s adaptation of the Oscar-winning, Cynthia Wade-directed 2007 documentary of the same name. Helmed by Peter Sollett, the film centers on Hester’s terminal cancer diagnosis and subsequent fight to have her pension benefits transferred to her domestic partner Stacie Andree. Page, »
