Michael Cimino, best remembered for 'Heaven's Gate,' is gone

2 July 2016 9:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are days where the Internet feels like the most ghoulish game of telephone ever, particularly when the word starts to spread that someone notable has died. Edgar Wright was the first one I saw mention the death of Michael Cimino this afternoon, quoting a Tweet by Cannes luminary Thierry Fremaux, who announced, “Michael Cimino died peacefully, surrounded by his family and these two women who loved him. We loved him also.” Without question, Cimino’s career was defined by one remarkable high and one remarkable low, and to some degree, his career is the perfect illustration of what happened as film culture moved from the ‘70s to the ‘80s, and part of what makes him such a fascinating figure is how questionable every “fact” about him was. Cimino was a mystery in many ways, and when he made his debut as a director with Thunderbolt & Lightfoot, he looked like »

The Deer Hunter Director Michael Cimino Dies at 77, Cannes Film Festival Director Says

2 July 2016 3:50 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Michael Cimino, director of the Oscar-winning film The Deer Hunter, has died. He was 77. Cannes Film Festival director Thierry Fremaux announced Cimino's passing on Twitter Saturday. "Michael Cimino died peacefully, surrounded by his family and the two women who loved him. We loved him too," Fremaux wrote in French. Among the eight works in his directorial career, The Deer Hunter is arguably Cimino's best known film. In 1978, he directed, produced and co-wrote the war drama that starred Robert De Niro, Christopher Walken and John Cazale. The Deer Hunter took home five Oscars that year.

Meryl Streep's Marriage Has Lasted as Long as Her Career

22 June 2016 8:31 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Meryl Streep knows a thing or two about long-term success, and her marriage is no exception. She and sculptor Don Gummer have been married since 1978, and he's been by her side at a number of industry events and award shows in the years since. Meryl may have been mentioned more than God in Oscars acceptance speeches over the last decade, but at the 2012 Academy Awards, it was her husband who received a sweet shout-out. When Meryl won best actress for The Iron Lady, she said, "First I'm going to thank Don because when you thank your husband at the end of the speech they play him out with the music, and I want him to know that everything I value most in our lives you've given me." The pair first met after her partner John Cazale - of The Godfather and The Deer Hunter - died of bone cancer. She »

Foster's Socially Conscious Wall Street Hostage Thriller Suffers from Triteness, Dishonesty

13 May 2016 6:57 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Money Monster' with George Clooney and Jack O'Connell: TV celebrity and unwise investor/hostage taker. 'Money Monster' review: Jodie Foster movie suffers from both qualitative and intellectual disconnect Sometimes there's a difference between what a movie thinks it is and what it actually is. Usually it's a qualitative disconnect, as in “this movie thinks it's exciting but it's actually boring” or “this movie assumes Kevin Hart is funny when, in fact, he's not.” In the case of Money Monster, the divide is also an intellectual versus anti-intellectual one. The fourth film directed by Jodie Foster fancies itself a ripped from the headlines wail from the bottom of the economic ladder. A thriller-cum-exposé into how Wall Street and big media suckered average Americans into following the Pied Pipers of TV's financial punditry class over the cliff into economic ruin. However, the movie we're really getting is »

When Actors Stop Acting And Start Living A Role

17 April 2016 4:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway argues that method acting is often unnecessary…

This week it was revealed that Jared Leto sent pornography and condoms to his Suicide Squad co-stars in preparation for his role as the Joker. When I did that with my work colleagues I got arrested, but it turns out to be Ok if you’re an Oscar winning actor. It does also highlight the issue of when acting crosses the line into living a role.

There is a long and not so proud history of actors going above and beyond to immerse themselves in the character they are playing to ensure a great performance.

Daniel Day-Lewis is currently not looking for acting work as he believes it would be hard to top his performance as the title character in Lincoln, during which he would send his co-stars text messages in character as Abraham Lincoln; I do hope Sally Field »

Inside Meryl Streep's Bedside Vigil for Dying Boyfriend John Cazale and How She Found Love Again with Don Gummer

31 March 2016 6:10 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When Meryl Streep's boyfriend John Cazale died of cancer in 1978, the actress was devastated. But, as it sometimes does, love and light came out of the tragedy - in this case, quite quickly. Streep's two-year romance with Cazale, a talented actor who starred in five Best Picture nominees in just six years, is detailed in Michael Schulman's upcoming biography Her Again: Becoming Meryl Streep, published April 26 by HarperCollins. Meeting first during an audition for New York City's famed Shakespeare in the Park, Streep and The Godfather star's connection was obvious to their castmates and director Joe Papp. Schulman »

Meryl Streep and Dustin Hoffman in Kramer vs. Kramer: the On-Set Drama Behind the Landmark Oscar-Winning Film

29 March 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Actors have difficult moments making films all the time, but news that Meryl Streep and Dustin Hoffman feuded on the set of Kramer vs. Kramer is a far bigger deal. We're talking about two of the most respected actors of their generations, with 26 Oscar nominations between them (her: 19; him: 7). When you're dealing with two Hollywood and Broadway heavyweights of that caliber, it sounds like a real-life clash of the titans. But it's important to remember that in 1978, it just wasn't that way.

How Meryl Streep Got Slapped into Stardom by Dustin Hoffman

29 March 2016 9:42 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

To film the 1979 movie, “Kramer vs. Kramer,” Dustin Hoffman used extreme methods to literally whip co-star Meryl Streep into shape, slapping Streep across the cheek while filming their first scene. In a Vanity Fair article, director Robert Benton and producer Richard Fischoff discuss the intense struggle between the two actors, where Hoffman would also taunt Streep about John Cazale, the actor whom she was dating for nearly two years before he died of advanced lung cancer. Streep wasn’t even considered for the role of Joanna, originally. But everyone was “dumbfounded” after her audition, and Hoffman credited her pain of losing Cazale for. »

Long before she became the most nominated actress in Academy Awards history, Meryl Streep was just a rising star, pushing boundaries in what would become one of her most memorable roles. In an adaptation from Michael Schulman's upcoming biography Her Again: Becoming Meryl Streep published by Vanity Fair, the behind-the-scenes struggle between Streep and Kramer vs. Kramer costar Dustin Hoffman is revealed.
