Kristen Stewart Goes Ghost-Chasing in U.S. Trailer for Olivier Assayas’ ‘Personal Shopper’

3 February 2017 10:10 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

I’ve sought out nearly all of his films, but even that level of knowledge and admiration couldn’t prepare me for what Olivier Assayas concocted with Personal Shopper. Part-ghost story, part-rumination on grief, part-exploration of contemporary technology’s shaping of our relationship with the physical world, part-excuse to see Kristen Stewart wear very nice clothing, and a very fruitful joining of those potentially disparate parts, it proved one of my favorite viewing experiences of last year and is likely to be a highlight of (theatrically released) 2017 cinema.

“Be excited,” I guess is what I mean to say, no less so when Personal Shopper‘s U.S. release is right around the corner. In anticipation of as much, IFC have released a new trailer. As we said in our review, “After Clouds of Sils Maria, Personal Shopper confirms Olivier Assayas as the director most adept at drawing the best out of Kristen Stewart. »

10 essential martial arts heroines

Craig Lines Feb 9, 2017

Cynthia Rothrock, Michelle Yeoh, Maggie Cheung and more feature, as we salute the female stars of martial arts movies...

It’s arguably a rare sight when female characters lead a major genre film, and last year’s online Ghostbusters drama proves it’s still, depressingly, a controversial choice if they do. Too often, female characters are reduced to sidekicks, damsels, sex objects and caricatures. It sometimes feels like every day there’s a new statistic about women being under-represented in Hollywood and while, to some extent, things are looking brighter and more diverse by the day, it’s an uphill struggle. Still, as we wait for Hollywood to get its act together, I thought I’d celebrate a genre where awesome, strong, multi-faceted female characters have led casts as a regular occurrence for decades - martial arts!

The Best of Movie Poster of the Day: Part 16

7 January 2017 5:12 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Above: Mondo poster for The Graduate (Mike Nichols, USA, 1967); artist: Rory Kurtz; lettering: Jay Shaw.On my daily movie poster Tumblr I don’t make a habit of posting fan art or art prints—call them what you will—because I’m most interested in the intersection of commerce and art that is the theatrical movie poster. But I make an exception when something stands out, and nothing stood out last year quite like Rory Kurtz’s beautiful, elegant and unexpected Mondo illustration for The Graduate, which quite rightly racked up over 200 more likes than even its nearest competitor. But its nearest competitor was fan art too: a brilliant poster for Badlands by the insanely talented Adam Juresko, whose art poster for In the Mood for Love (featured in my Maggie Cheung article) was also in the top four. What makes art posters easy to like—beyond their extraordinary artistry »

All caught up with our top 50 films of 2016? It’s now time to look to the new year, and, ahead of our 100 most-anticipated films, we’re highlighting 50 titles we’ve enjoyed on the festival circuit this last year (and beyond) that will likely see a release in 2016.

U.S. distributors: take note!

Staying Vertical (Alain Guiraudie; Jan. 20)

Those only familiar with Alain Guiraudie’s sublime Stranger By the Lake, which finally brought the gifted French director to a (relatively) wider audience following a laureled Un Certain Regard premiere in 2013, will likely find themselves confounded by its follow-up, Staying Vertical. With his first entry in Cannes’ main competition, Guiraudie returns to the »
