Directors Guild of America Fines Jill Soloway, Amazon Over ‘I Love Dick’ Credits

14 September 2017 4:06 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Directors Guild of America has leveled a six-figure fine against Amazon Studios and Jill Soloway over allegations of misconduct from directors on the “I Love Dick” series, sources have told Variety.

Representatives for the DGA, Amazon, and Soloway had no comment. A source told Variety that the directors complained that DGA rules had been violating as they did not receive credit for scenes they shot that subsequently appeared in other episodes. They also alleged that Soloway’s activities on the set had interfered with their jobs.

Soloway has extensive television credits as a producer, director, and writer dating back to “Six Feet Under,” “United States of Tara,” and “Grey’s Anatomy.” Soloway won the best director award at the Sundance Film Festival for the 2013 film “Afternoon Delight,” then won a DGA Award and two Emmys for episodes of “Transparent.”

I Love Dick” was created by Soloway and Sarah Gubbins, and »

Netflix to Premiere New Joan Didion Doc at New York Film Festival

23 August 2017 12:01 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold

“How does one capture such a celebrated and prolific author while delivering something new for audiences to engage with?” That is precisely the question Netflix aims to tackle with its newly announced documentary on the legendary Joan Didion.

For over 50 years, Didion’s work has extended over various literary mediums. Her credits include that of essayist, screenwriter, and novelist. She has been, as Netflix’s press release stresses, “our premier chronicler of the ebb and flow of America’s cultural and political tides with observations on her personal — and our own — upheavals, downturns, life changes, and states of mind.”

This documentary, directed by Griffin Dunne (“I Love Dick”) aims to capture a new level of intimacy and understanding through one-on-one conversations. Dunne and Didion touch on everything from “partying with Janis Joplin in a house full of La rockers” to “the sleek literati scene of the 1950s and early ‘60s” to “her film scripts, including ‘The Panic in Needle Park.’” Dunne emphasizes that this documentary is a “true labor of love.”

Alongside Dunne, the film’s producers include Mary Recine (“What Happened, Miss Simone?”) and Annabelle Dunne (“Everything is Copy”).

Joan Didion’s essay “Goodbye to All That” was optioned for a film adaptation in 2015. Her books include “Slouching Towards Bethlehem,” “The White Album,” and “The Year of Magical Thinking.” Didion also wrote the screenplay for the Barbra Streisand-led “A Star Is Born” and “Up Close and Personal” starring Michelle Pfeiffer

Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold” will premiere at this year’s New York Film Festival and on Netflix October 27.

Netflix to Premiere New Joan Didion Doc at New York Film Festival was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Netflix to Release Gay Talese, Joan Didion Documentaries

23 August 2017 11:28 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Netflix has unveiled a pair of documentaries — Gay Talese’s “Voyeur” and “Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold” — and plans to release both later this year.

Both titles are due to premiere first at the 55th New York Film Festival in October.

“Voyeur” follows Talese as he reports one of the most controversial stories of his career: a portrait of a Colorado motel owner, Gerald Foos. For decades, Foos secretly watched his guests with the aid of specially designed ceiling vents, peering down from an “observation platform” he built in the motel’s attic and kept detailed journals.

Talese had originally published the story about Foos in the New Yorker, then set up the project at Amblin with Sam Mendes attached to direct, but the “Voyeur’s Motel” project was dropped from development after questions emerged about the veracity of some of the details of the story.

11 Films to Watch After Seeing ‘Good Time’

14 August 2017 6:11 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In their feature films, directors Josh and Ben Safdie have always walked a fine line between fact and fiction. Not quite documentaries and not quite traditional narratives, their work takes on an air of alarming spontaneity, threatening to jump off the screen at you. Between Daddy Longlegs and Heaven Knows What, the Safdies captured a gorgeously grainy snapshot of their home city of New York, both painfully truthful and deeply impacting.

Their latest, Good Time, returns to New York City, this time bringing a pulp edge to their naturalistic aesthetic. After a botched bank robbery lands his brother Nick (Ben Safdie) in jail, Constantine (Robert Pattinson) is forced out of Queens into the city to bring his brother home, at any cost.

Our review describes Good Time as “in parts a heist movie (iconic masks included) and a chase movie, but not an homage in any sense — more an evolution, »
