Pawel Pawlikowski’s ‘Ida’ Wins Best Film at the European Film Awards

13 December 2014 11:04 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Riga, Latvia — Pawel Pawlikowski’s “Ida,” which centers on a young Catholic nun in Poland who discovers her parents were Jewish and were murdered during the Nazi occupation, took the best film award at the 27th European Film Awards in Riga, Latvia.

Eric Abraham, one of the producers of the film, dedicated the award to the people whose relatives were victims of the Holocaust, which included members of his own family. He remarked on the fact that anti-semitism was again on the rise.

Pawlikowski won best director, and he and Rebecca Lenkiewicz took the screenplay prize for the black-and-white Polish-language film, which also won the People’s Choice Award, voted on by the public. The pic also took the award for its cinematographers, Lukasz Zal and Ryszard Lenczewski. Pawlikowski thanked Abraham for taking on a “difficult” director.

The 50 Definitive Relationship Dramas: 50-41

29 November 2014 6:56 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Before I met my wife, my longest relationship lasted a span of only three months. I wasn’t afraid of commitment; I was too committed too early. I fell fast and hard. Every time. But that doesn’t mean I never went through the typical relationship bumps in the road. I fought with plenty of exes about normal things – jealousy, dishonesty, etc. And now my wife and I fight about plenty of the same things, but we handle it, just like every other successful couple. In the spirit of tumultuous relationships, this list looks at the definitive relationship dramas. These are films that focus on one or more romantic relationships. These aren’t just “falling in love” movies. These are movies that dissect some side of a relationship that helps to drive the plot. So, without further ado, let’s join hands on this journey together.

What's New on TV, Netflix Streaming, Digital, and DVD/Blu-ray This Week: November 24 - 30

24 November 2014 5:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.

New on DVD and Blu-ray

"What If"

This charming indie rom-com stars Daniel Radcliffe as Wallace and Zoe Kazan as Chantry, two platonic friends who maybe, kinda sorta want to be more than friends. At least Wallace does; Chantry is in a long-term relationship, and Wallace has convinced himself being "just friends" is better than not having Chantry in his life at all. Adam Driver and Mackenzie Davis co-star as Wallace's best friend and his new girl; together, their newfound lust (or it is love?) is hilarious and unstoppable.

"The Long Goodbye"/"Thieves Like Us"

Don't overlook these classic '70s films by Robert Altman. "The Long Goodbye" stars Elliot Gould as Philip Marlowe in an updated version of Raymond Chandler's novel, alongside Nina Van Pallandt, »

8 November 2014 4:32 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A who's who of this year's Oscar-contending foreign film crop will duke it out for best film honors along with Lars von Trier's latest at this year's European Film Awards. "Force Majeure" from Sweden, "Ida" from Poland, "Leviathan" from Russia and "Winter Sleep" from Turker were nominated in the top category with Lars von Trier's two-part "Nymphomaniac," with "Ida" leading the way overall with five nominations. Steven Knight's "Locke" showed up in the director and screenwriter fields, while that film's star, Tom Hardy, was nominated in the best actor category along with awards hopefuls like Brendan Gleeson ("Calvary") and Timothy Spall (shockingly, "Mr. Turner's" only nomination). Marion Cotillard ("Two Days, One Night"), Charlotte Gainsbourg ("Nymphomaniac") and Agata Kulesza ("Ida") were among the best actress nominees. Also announced were the craft prizes, included hardware for "Ida" (cinematographer), "Under the Skin" (composer) and "The Dark Valley" (costume and »

'Nymphomaniac' star joins Robert Pattinson in 'The Childhood of a Leader'

13 October 2014 10:06 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The fresh-faced Stacy Martin bent over backwards (among other positions) to humanize "Young Joe," a companion to Charlotte Gainsbourg's character, in Lars von Trier's "Nymphomaniac." While this year's only two-part sex parable isn't earning much love in the way of awards buzz, the model-turned-actress made enough of an impression to catch filmmakers' eyes. Her latest projection pairs her with a leading man that will inevitably catapult her to the mainstream. That's the magic of Robert Pattinson. Screen Daily reports that Martin has joined the cast of "The Childhood of a Leader," the directorial debut of "Simon Killer" and "Clouds of Sils Maria" actor Brady Corbet. She'll costar alongside the previously cast Pattinson, Tim Roth and Berenice Bejo in the drama that's set to shoot this Janaury in Budapest. According to the announcement, "The Childhood of a Leader" is “a chilling fable about the rise of fascism in the 20th Century. »

New York 2014 Review: In Misunderstood, A Little Girl Contends With A Family From Hell

5 October 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Leo Tolstoy famously opened his classic novel Anna Karenina with this statement: "Happy families are all alike. But all unhappy families are unhappy in their own way." You'd be hard pressed to find a family much unhappier than the one depicted in Misunderstood, the latest feature by actress-director Asia Argento, her third as director and her first filmmaking effort in about a decade. The opening scene wastes very little time in establishing just how hellish an existence being part of that family is. Over a family dinner, mom (Charlotte Gainsbourg) and dad (Gabriel Garko) hurl vicious insults at one another, while the children are caught in the middle of this violent whirlwind. The one who gets the brunt of the cruel, abusive, and casually neglectful behavior...

Nymphomaniac: Director’s Cut Review

2 October 2014 3:06 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Lars von Trier doesn’t know anything about sex, and neither does anyone in Nymphomaniac. Despite it being the film’s central preoccupation, two volumes and four hours weren’t enough for the Danish director to arrive at any sort of concrete thesis on human sexuality. He also never came close to developing a clear statement on self-loathing, deviance, relationships, and every other topic under the sun that the epic, psycho-erotic character study touched upon. Nymphomaniac and its director were locked in nattering, schizophrenic conversation with themselves, and with the release of the Director’s Cut, the only real question worth answering is how much longer one can indulge von Trier’s shaggy dog sexcapade.

Turns out: quite a while. Clocking in at a whopping five and half hours, the Director’s Cut of Nymphomaniac, released on VOD and in select theatres today, is more of the same, and then some: more digressive, »

Exclusive: Rebel Against Love In This Featurette For Lars von Trier's 'Nymphomaniac — Extended Director's Cut'

2 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

One of the most talked about movies of the year is also one of the longest movies of the year. Lars von Trier's "Nymphomaniac" has been creating buzz ever since it was first announced. And after opening earlier this year in theaters, now's the time to see the Dogma 95 Doyen's epic as he fully intended —the extended, five-and-a-half-hour director's cut is on VOD today, and the Playlist is delighted to take you behind-the-scenes with this exclusive featurette. Featuring insights from the cast, including Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stacy Martin, Shia Labeouf and Stellan Skarsgard, this preview for the film explores the intersection of love and sex that von Trier tackles therein. This is art, as Skarsgard says, just not presented on the usual canvas you might expect, but as seen through von Trier's distinct vision. "Nymphomaniac —Extended Director's Cut" is on VOD right now in the United States, Canada, Spain, The Netherlands, »

'Nymphomaniac' Director's Cut Now on VOD (Nsfw Video)

2 October 2014 9:50 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Lars von Trier's wildly unrestrained psychosexual opus is the gift that keeps on giving. While the original bifurcated -- though hardly coy -- Volumes I and II are already streaming on Netflix, the great Dane's five-and-a-half-hour director's cut of this controversial epic starring Charlotte Gainsbourg as the title sex addict is now available on paid VOD platforms including iTunes and Amazon. Von Trier's definitive version, which most recently screened at Fantastic Fest, digs deeper into the lusty Joe's (played by Gainsbourg in adulthood and Stacy Martin as a young woman) Freudian beginnings, including her too-close relationship with her father (Christian Slater). And there is of course lots more explicit sex and talk of fly-fishing with Stellan Skarsgard as the man who rescues Joe from herself. (The very, very Nsfw clips below serve up just a taste of the action.) Now vying for European Film Awards, "Nymphomaniac" divided critics throughout its festival run and. »

Q&A: ‘Intouchables’ Helmers Eric Toledano And Olivier Nakache Discuss ‘Samba’

29 September 2014 12:38 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

San Sebastian, Spain– Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache, who delivered the biggest French-language hit ever with the Omar-Sy starrer “Intouchables” ($426 million worldwide) in 2011, fired up this year’s San Sebastian fest with the European premiere of “Samba” on closing night. In the well-polished social comedy, Sy plays Samba, a hard-working Senegalese migrant whose life is turned upside down after getting caught by authorities. Pic, which is produced by Quad Films, centers around Samba’s unlikely relationship and building romance with Alice, a social worker (Charlotte Gainsbourg) who is recovering from a burn-out. Sold by Gaumont, “Samba” sparked standing ovations at both Toronto, where it world-premiered, and at San Sebastian. Kicking off the European tour to promote the movie, Toledano and Nakache took time to chat with Variety about the genesis of “Samba,” what the film means to them, their collaboration with Sy and Gainsbourg, and what they look forward to in France and beyond. »

Nyff 2014: ‘Misunderstood’ Is a Cackling, Confident Tale of Troubled Youth

29 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Misunderstood is a magnificently angry film. One can glean as much from the title, a potential evocation of everything from the Beats and Rebel Without a Cause to the sexually furious teens of Fat Girl and the New French Extremity. Asia Argento‘s third feature as director may not reference all of these different artistic moments, but it certainly fits into the larger cultural history of disaffected youth. Its adults are incompetent, acrimonious clowns whose negligence is only matched by their stupidity. Its children take after them, engaging in petty squabbles because they’ve likely never seen anyone behave any better. It is a film that sees right into the empty core of materialism and its discontents. All of this might be hard to take if it were not anchored by a defiant, cackling sense of humor and one of the most effective child protagonists of the last few years. Aria »

Magical Girl” was awarded the top Golden Shell and best director for rising Spanish helmer Carlos Vermut at the 62nd annual San Sebastian Film Festival on Saturday.

Daily | Nyff 2014 | Asia Argento’s Misunderstood

26 September 2014 12:03 PM, PDT | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

Back in May, the New York Times' Manohla Dargis spoke with Asia Argento about her third feature, Misunderstood (Incompresa), "a funny, free, tough-minded film… Set in the 1980s, it centers on a 9-year-old, Aria (Giulia Salerno), the underloved daughter of two monstrous narcissists, an actor (Gabriel Garko) and a pianist (Charlotte Gainsbourg). Soon after it opens, the parents separate and Aria–Ms. Argento’s original name–starts toggling between them even as they reject her, often brutally. Cast aside, she takes refuge in her love of a cat and in her imagination, which soars movingly both in her writing and in some wild fantasies." We're collecting more reviews and have posted the trailer and two clips. » - David Hudson »
