‘Stranger Things’ Featurette: Winona Ryder On Her Harrowing, Emotional Performance In Her First Major TV Role

26 July 2016 11:11 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Netflix’s new original series sci-fi horror series “Stranger Things,” about the disappearance of a young boy and the arrival of a telekinetic girl in a small town in 1980’s Indiana, has garnered critical acclaim for its performances and the numerous homages to 1980’s cinema. Written and directed by Matt and Ross Duffers, colloquially known as The Duffers, the series features actress Winona Ryder in a prominent role as Joyce Byers, a high-strung single mother whose son Will is the boy who goes missing. While the town is out looking for her son, she believes she’s talking to him through the lights in her house and is convinced that her son is alive and in danger. It’s an emotional, harrowing performance, especially for Ryder’s first major TV role. Watch a featurette below with Ryder, The Duffers, executive producer Shawn Levy, and fellow actor David Harbour discuss Ryder’s fearless performance. »

How ‘BoJack Horseman’ Achieved Perfection Without a Word

26 July 2016 9:46 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: “BoJack Horseman” Season 3 is a feat of storytelling on both a serialized and episodic level. To honor the impressive accomplishment, IndieWire will be reviewing all 12 episodes over the next few weeks. Below, we delve into Episode 4.]

“You’ll find me in a sea of dreams where no one cares about my words.”

That Raphael Bob-Waksberg would make a largely silent episode of “BoJack Horseman” is as surprising as it is fitting, but the diegetic reason the episode features little dialogue (and none underwater) takes a well-executed punchline and turns it into transcendent TV. Revealed in the final seconds of “A Fish Out of Water,” we learn BoJack could have been speaking the entire time had he not been ignorant of how to use his underwater oxygen bubble. When he finally pushes his communication button and realizes the gaffe, BoJack lets out a frustrated “Oh, you have got to be kidd–” that’s cut off by the credits. While funny as a kicker to an episode building to a crescendo of mistakes, the choice also speaks to our antihero’s larger mental state and why he so »

25 July 2016 12:15 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

One of the joys of Netflix’s original series “Stranger Things” is the season’s sense of finality. The Duffer brothers excelled at crescendoing the season with action, emotion and heft, yet they left what they’ve referred to as “dangling threads” around the conclusions of Will Byers and Eleven, and we wanted to get in on speculating what Season 2 may answer and where the show could venture to. If you’ve finished the season, read on to find out what we’re asking about Season 2. If you haven’t checked out Season 1 yet, Do That and stop reading here!

Netflix has added the anime feature film “Blame!” as an original title that will premiere in 2017, Anime News Network reported. The film is an adaptation of Japanese magna artist Tsutomu Nihei’s 10-volume 1998 cyberpunk story for Kodansha Comics.

‘Stranger Things’ Season 2 Clues: Does Hopper Know Where [Spoiler] Is & What Happened?

25 July 2016 7:28 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Netflix’s new original series “Stranger Things” is a hit with critics and the public alike. People love the show’s cast, central mystery, and its various homages to ’80s legends like Steven Spielberg and John Carpenter, but most of all, they can’t wait for a second season. In a new interview with Variety, the series’ creators Matt and Ross Duffer, colloquially known as The Duffer Brothers, discussed creative choices regarding the season at large, including how to pace out the extent of Eleven’s powers and her true origins, whether the government conspiracy angle will be a long-term mystery for the show, and the Upside Down monster.

They also dropped a tiny clue about whether Chief Jim Hopper knows the true extent of Eleven’s whereabout at the end of the season, and potentially putting Hopper and Eleven together in upcoming episodes.

Michael Moore’s Traverse City Film Festival 2016: Why Every Movie In Competition is Directed by a Woman

20 July 2016 1:52 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

This year, Michael Moore will use his Traverse City Film Festival to throw down the gauntlet for women filmmakers. The official selection — not the sidebar, not a spotlight — is comprised of 32 films, and every one is directed by a woman.

“Every film in our Official Selection (Us), fiction and nonfiction, is directed or co-directed by a woman,” Moore told IndieWire in an email. “And they’re all incredible movies. As an expression of tokenism usually reserved for women, I am bringing five films by American men in a sidebar called, ‘Men Make Movies —The Struggle Continues.'” There are other movies in the lineup directed by men, of course, whether foreign or classic.
