The Lrm Interview: Gore Verbinski on A Cure for Wellness and That Bioshock Movie

19 December 2016 9:19 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

After spending over a decade making Pirates of the Caribbean movies and others with Johnny Depp, director Gore Verbinski has returned to the genre for which he first got attention with 2002’s The Ring…. Horror!

His new psychological thriller, A Cure for Wellness, stars Dane DeHaan (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) as Lockhart, a young finance executive who is assigned by the partners of his company to retrieve their missing CEO, who has gone to Switzerland to receive treatment from the waters under an ancient castle in the Alps. And he has decided not to return, which is a problem since they’re about to close a big deal that requires his presence.  Lockhart travels to the castle, only to learn that cell phones and electronics don’t work there, and when he is injured in a near-deadly car crash, he finds himself trapped there as all sorts of weird visions commence. »

‘Dr. Phil’ Beats Daytime Rivals in Ratings by Biggest November Margin Ever

7 December 2016 12:24 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

November was kind to Dr. Phil McGraw. The host of the syndicated talk show “Dr. Phil” won the November sweeps period with a 3.6 household rating, according to Nielsen. That was a 44 percent lead over his nearest competitors, “Live with Kelly” and “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” It was also “Dr. Phil’s” 15th straight win in a major sweeps period and his largest margin of victory ever. Also Read: Steve Harvey to End Current Talk Show, Launch New One McGraw also made headlines — and generated plenty of criticism — with a program that interviewed 1970s film star Shelley Duvall, who now says she is. »

Newswire: Vivian Kubrick cancels her GoFundMe campaign for Shelley Duvall

23 November 2016 9:03 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The GoFundMe campaign to help actress Shelley Duvall after her disconcerting Dr. Phil interview has been halted. According to its orchestrator, Vivian Kubrick—daughter of director Stanley—the effort was canceled because Duvall’s mother said the family couldn’t accept large donations. Those, per Kubrick, would impede the benefits Duvall receives from SAG-aftra and the government. On Twitter, Kubrick explained the money already pledged was being refunded.

Scientology Looms as Kubrick Daughter Scraps Shelley Duvall Crowdfunding Campaign

23 November 2016 6:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Jennifer Tilly gave $500, just one of 660 concerned fans who donated to a GoFundMe campaign that aimed to raise $100,000 for Shelley Duvall, the quirky, Minnie Mouse-voiced star of films like Stanley Kubrick's The Shining and Robert Altman's Nashville and Popeye. Now Tilly will be getting her donation back — and be left wondering, no doubt, exactly what happened.

The campaign was a direct response to a shocking and much-criticized Nov. 18 interview with Duvall by talk-show therapist Phil McGraw on his syndicated Dr. Phil. In it, the 67-year-old Duvall, practically unrecognizable from her doe-eyed younger self, demonstrated signs of severe psychosis »

'Borderline': Film Review

21 November 2016 11:29 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

As Dr. Phil's recent interview with actress Shelley Duvall so vividly illustrated, there's a thin line between examining a person suffering from mental illness and exploiting her. For the most part, filmmaker Rebbie Ratner finds the proper balance in her documentary about a woman suffering from Borderline Personality Disorder (Bpd). Nonetheless, Borderline often makes for an uncomfortable viewing experience, especially since its subject is not someone with whom it's very enjoyable to spend 90 minutes.

Barbara Kopple executive produced the film, which recently screened at Doc NYC. It centers on Regina, a 45-year-old lesbian New Yorker whose condition has made »

A Season For Thanksgiving

20 November 2016 2:52 PM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Thanksgiving. After the past year of tumult, anger and divisiveness we’ve experienced in this country and around the world, to say nothing of the past couple of weeks, the concepts of thankfulness and appreciation may seem somewhat more distant and difficult to access than they might otherwise normally be. At any rate, Thanksgiving Day itself seems of late to be more about gorging on gigantic meals and, more distressingly, rampant consumerism, as Black Friday ever threatens to overtake the spirit of the day, and even the day itself—how many more seasons before it officially becomes Black Thursday? Yet here we are, a few days before that very American occasion inspired by the desire to show our gratitude for our many blessings. So in the hope of reclaiming some of the original intent of our national holiday, I’d like to send out some brief thoughts on a few »

Help is on the way for Shelley Duvall. The 67-year-old star, who quit acting almost 15 years ago, recently drew sympathy from scores of viewers who watched promos for an interview she gave Dr. Phil, in which she revealed she is suffering from mental illness.

Now she is taking the initiative to help the actress financially. On Friday, Vivian sent up a GoFundMe page to raise money for Duvall and as of Saturday »

Newswire: Get Involved, Internet: Help Shelley Duvall get back on her feet

18 November 2016 2:29 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Yesterday we reported on Dr. Phil McGraw’s ongoing efforts to further monetize his own lack of shame by trotting a clearly mentally ill Shelley Duvall out in front of the cameras under the pretense of offering her some of his signature brand of exploitative “help.” Numerous people criticized McGraw’s “therapy” as an obvious ratings grab, including Vivian Kubrick, the daughter of Duvall’s The Shining director, Stanley Kubrick. Kubrick posted a scathing letter on Twitter yesterday denouncing Dr. Phil for posting excerpts from Duvall’s interview, and displaying her illness to the world as part of his “utterly heartless form of entertainment.”

Now, Kubrick is putting together an effort to give some concrete assistance to Duvall. Kubrick has organized a GoFundMe drive in the actress’ name, in the hope that the funds might put her “back on the road to independence.” Kubrick’s post doesn’t list any »

‘Dr. Phil’ Shelley Duvall Interview Prompts Criticism for ‘Exploitive Entertainment’

18 November 2016 1:42 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Friday’s episode of top-rated syndicated talk show “Dr. Phil” was devoted to an interview with Shelley Duvall, prompting a discussion about whether the show was exploiting the actress’ mental health problems.

Host Phil McGraw interviewed Duvall at length for the episode, dubbed “From Hollywood Star to Near Isolation.”

Duvall is best known for her starring roles in two movies from 1980: Stanley Kubrick’s classic “The Shining” and Robert Altman’s “Popeye,” Duvall has been out of the public eye for over a decade and lives in Texas where the interview took place.

A rep for “Dr. Phil” declined to comment on criticism of the show. The session was taped last month, a source said. Since then, the show has coordinated with Duvall’s family and has been providing free resources to help the actress at her home.

The conversation between McGraw and Duvall took up first 45 minutes of the show. The »

Shelley Duvall: From Her Shining Movie Moments to Her Life Away from the Spotlight

17 November 2016 12:35 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Shelley Duvall’s blood-curdling screams of terror in the climax of The Shining are an indelible part of film history, and the leading lady of the 1980 horror classic went on to work in everything from comedies to children’s television shows in the decades that followed.

The actress, now 67, has stepped away from the spotlight in recent years, but that hasn’t diminished the imprint she’s left — those curious wide eyes, that high-pitched voice, her signature slender frame — in films like Popeye and Annie Hall, and in her collaborations with auteur Robert Altman (Nashville, McCabe & Ms. Miller, 3 Women).

A sad Dr. Phil interview with an unrecognizable Shelley Duvall hit the Internet last night that shows the actress clearly suffering from some sort of mental illness. Among other things, she says that Robin Williams is living as a shapeshifter, Robin Hood's Sheriff of Nottingham is somehow threatening her and there's a"whirling disc" implanted inside of her leg. "I'm very sick," she says. "I need help." Dr. Phil has been widely criticized for putting Duvall on television in this state, especially since she's been out of the public eye »
