Oscars Still Have Long Way to Go On Gender Equality

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

Ever since Oscar nominations were announced Jan. 14, there has been a lot of talk about diversity — but most of it has centered on racial disparity. However, there is one group that’s not a minority, but still under-represented in the film world: women, who are half the population, but represent a small fraction of workers in the film industry. The latter fact is reflected in this year’s Oscar nominations, where women were not invisible, but their presence is still insufficient.

Here’s the good news. In costume design, four of the five nominees are women. Women represented exactly 50% of the nominees in makeup/hairstyling (four of eight individuals cited) and editing (three of the six).

From there, things get a little rockier.

Among production designers, it’s four women out of 11 nominees. In adapted screenplay, women represent two of the six nominated individuals; in original screenplay, it’s two »

Diversity Scandal Overlooks Historic Year for Women at Oscars

4 February 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

When it comes to this year’s Academy Awards, no word is more buzzworthy than “diversity”. For the second year in a row the Oscars have nominated only white actors in their four main acting categories, sparking backlash and, as a result, inciting the Academy to announce new changes to tackle its “diversity problem”.

Amidst another year of #OscarsSoWhite trending on Twitter, however, the fact that 2015 has been an exceptionally strong year for women has been largely overlooked. Three of this year’s best picture nominees (BrooklynRoomMad Max: Fury Road) are female-centric and feature strong female protagonists in the center of the action. In fact, even outside of those films and their performances, a number of women are nominated for best picture as producers, as well. Kristie Macosko Krieger is nominated for Bridge of Spies, Blye Pagon Faust is nominated for Spotlight, Dede Gardner »

Movie Review: Mustang

2 February 2016 2:00 AM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Turkish-born French filmmaker Deniz Gamze Ergüven’s feature film debut Mustang is extremely impressive in its ability to portray, in extreme beauty, the allegorical atrociousness of life for five young sisters in rural Turkey.

Lale (Güneş Şensoy), Nur (Doğa Doğuşlu), Ece (Elit İşcan), Selma (Tuğba Sunguroğlu), and Sonay (İlayda Akdoğan) are five sisters who, as the film opens, are perfectly content with their young lives. After playing in the lake with their male classmates – sitting on the boys’ shoulders in a game of chicken – they arrive home and are physically punished by their grandmother (Nihal Koldaş), who heard from a woman in the neighborhood that they were inappropriately touching boys. Despite relenting and realizing that this rumor is false, their grandmother and Uncle Erol (Ayberk Pekcan), fear further rumors will hurt the girls’ chances of finding suitable husbands, and decide that the girls can no longer leave the family home. »

1 February 2016 10:32 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

February may be the shortest month of the year, but the major streaming sites certainly haven't used that as an excuse to slack off. Perhaps motivated by the imminent Leap Day, Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime are unleashing an absolute blizzard of new titles over the next four weeks — from a martial-arts sequel 16 years in the making, to a note-perfect new comedy series that's arriving just in time to cure (or inflame) those post-Valentine's Day blues. Here are our top 10 picks for what to watch in the next 29 days.

Oscars: Rookies Crack Race for Foreign-Language Film

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

In the delicate art of list-making, sometimes a slight trim can make all the difference. When the pre-nomination shortlist for the foreign-language film Oscar was announced in December, complaints were heard in many quarters not about the collective quality of the selections, but about what a Euro-centric group it was. Seven of the nine films came from European Union member states — Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary and Ireland — with only Jordan’s “Theeb” and Colombia’s “Embrace of the Serpent” representing the planet’s remaining territories.

Needless to say, the Academy’s foreign-language category was never intended to be a U.N. Assembly; members should vote with their hearts, not their atlas. But the Euro bias was nonetheless disappointing in a year that saw a flurry of creative energy in Latin American cinema — Colombia’s entry representing the crest of a wave that included Brazil’s “The Second Mother, »

Paolo Sorrentino's Youth and the hotel as a character

27 January 2016 6:28 AM, PST | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

'It's like I'm in a movie' is a feeling that's particularly apt to wash over you when in a hotel. This isn't because they evoke the numerous films that have been set in them however - from the surreal symmetry of Stanley Kubrick's The Shining to the hollow serenity of Sofia Coppola's Lost in Translation - but because the hotel is inherently cinematic. »

Interview: Cinematographer Ed Lachman Talks Romantic World Of 'Carol,' Werner Herzog, ‘I’m Not There’ & More

25 January 2016 9:17 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Pick a period and he’ll nail the look; choose an emotion and he’ll layer it visually. Over a 40-year career, cinematographer Ed Lachman has developed a story-driven approach to the films he’s shot, stemming from his beginnings in European cinema with Wim Wenders, Jean-Luc Godard, and under DPs Sven Nykvist and Vittorio Storraro. He’s also joined with American auteurs, like frequent collaborator Todd Haynes (“Far From Heaven”, “I’m Not There”), Steven Soderbergh (“The Limey”, “Erin Brockovich”) and Sofia Coppola (“The Virgin Suicides”), each time delivering occasionally experimental period pieces. Read More: Retrospective: The Films Of Todd Haynes  The Playlist's recent feature on Lachman’s work acknowledged his influence, as did the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences: his latest film, Haynes’ drama “Carol” (our review), earned Lachman his second Oscar nomination for Best Cinematography (after “Far From Heaven” in 2003). Based on Patricia Highsmith’s. »

Live action fairytale movies: UK release date calendar

When to expect all the upcoming live action fairytale movies, including Dumbo, Beauty And The Beast and two Jungle Books…

You’ve probably noticed the influx of live action fairytales gracing cinemas in recent years. This isn’t about to stop any time soon, since re-spinning a recognisable fantastical yarn with real people instead of animated ones always makes big money for the studio behind it.

This process has become so popular that there are currently more of these live action fairytales in production than Marvel Studios, DC Entertainment or Star Wars movies. That’s a lot of films. (A whopping 21 by our count.)

Although it wadsn’t the first movie of this kind, Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland – and its worldwide gross of over a billion dollars – can surely take the credit for kick-starting this trend. Here are all the in-development movies trying to repeat its success, »

“The Grain of Super 16 Gives the Film Another Layer”: Edward Lachman on Carol

14 January 2016 8:47 AM, PST | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

If cinematographer Edward Lachman was inclined towards chasing golden statuettes, he would shoot nothing but ’50s-era forbidden romances for Todd Haynes. Lachman’s initial film to match that descriptor – 2002’s Far from Heaven – earned his first Oscar nomination. This morning Lachman landed his second nod for his work on Carol, another ’50s-set romance, this time between an unhappily married New York housewife (Cate Blanchett) and a budding young photographer (Rooney Mara). Carol marks Lachman’s fourth film with Haynes, highlighting a five-decade career that includes collaborations with Robert Altman, Steven Soderbergh, Todd Solondz, Paul Schrader, Sofia Coppola, and a sizable […] »
