TruTV Orders Scripted Anthology Series from Bobcat Goldthwait, Renews ‘Comedy Knockout’

31 July 2016 1:16 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Turner network truTV has given a series order to a new genre-hopping, scripted anthology comedy series with the working title “Bobcat Goldthwait’s Messed Up Stories.” The eight-episode season will premiere in 2017 and marks the network’s second foray into the scripted genre. It will bring television viewers twisted morality tales from the mind of creator Bobcat Goldthwait. Each episode will tell a different story in a different genre – including 1970s-era science fiction, psychological thriller, romantic comedy and reality – and will parody pop culture norms and exploit the awkwardness of its flawed characters.

“From the moment Bobcat pitched this series, we were immediately drawn to his distinctly original vision for the show. There’s nothing like it on TV and I think audiences will feel the same way,” said Marissa Ronca, executive vice president and head of programming for truTV. “We’re excited to be working with another visionary creator, and »

NYC Weekend Watch: Max Ophüls, ‘Seven Samurai,’ ‘On the Silver Globe’ & More

28 July 2016 6:43 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Museum of Modern Art

Leo McCarey and the great Gaumont series are continuing their ongoing retrospectives, both of which make for a densely packed lineup.

Metrograph

Relive your traumatized childhood with “This Is PG?!” Jaws, Temple of Doom, and Poltergeist are but a few of the first weekend’s titles.

Helen DeWitt will present a print of Seven Samurai on Sunday. »

Belladonna of Sadness Is a Lost Classic Worth Rediscovering

11 July 2016 2:07 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

This Week in New DVD ReleasesBelladonna of Sadness Brings Tragic Beauty and a Call for Sacrifice to Home VideoPick of the WeekBelladonna of Sadness

What is it? Jeanne and Jean are a young couple in love, but after their fairy tale wedding the pair are brought before the local lord to make an offering. He forces himself on her instead before sharing her with his court, and when even her new husband turns his back on her she finds pained, messy comfort with a devil-sent imp who offers to help in exchange for her soul.

Why buy it? Eiichi Yamamoto’s early ’70s slice of psychedelia, erotica, and still-relevant commentary is a beautifully disturbing descent into our shared history of sexual violence, oppression, and the abuse of authority. If it sounds heavy, well, it is — it’s also extremely graphic with watercolor frames and hand-drawn animation that capture the atrocities with gorgeously imaginative imagery. It »

15 Great Ways Filmmakers Found Their Independence In The Last 20 Years

4 July 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Subverting the Unexpected

At the end of the 20th century, Bobcat Goldthwait’s legacy read like a cheap joke: He was a screaming comedian from the eighties best known as Zed in the “Police Academy” franchise who once tried at his hand at directing a movie (“Shakes the Clown”). Those achievements barely skimmed the surface of Goldthwait’s ability, as the ensuing years made clear, when Goldthwait completely transformed his career into one of the most provocative American filmmakers working today. With the microbudget “Sleeping Dogs Lie” (aka “Stay”), Goldthwait showed his potential to funnel taboo subject matters into oddly touching, relatable human dramas, a proclivity he kicked up to a whole new level with the subversive black comedy “World’s Greatest Dad,” which features Robin Williams in one of his all-time great roles.

Goldthwait has kept innovating, with each new movie offering a fresh perspective on the naive assumptions »

The Greatest Human-Animal Relationships in Cinema

23 June 2016 9:28 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Writer and academic W.G. Sebald once said: “Men and animals regard each other across a gulf of mutual incomprehension.” In truth, an animal understands nothing of its place in the world, their mind focused merely on food and the prospect of comfort, if available. In cinema, there is an old actor’s adage that states: “Never work with children or animals. They will always upstage you.” When an animal performs successfully in a film, it’s undeniably captivating because we know that animal is unaware of its role in the overall story. The camera has recorded some beautiful cosmic miracle, appearing from the outside to somehow defy Sebald’s words.

Whether fictional friend or foe, the relationship between humans and animals in cinema has always captured our imaginations. These sometimes expand beyond the borders of the normal, and, beyond the Bourgeoisie pooper-scoopers and barked-out cry conveying that some hapless child has fallen down a well, »

Teen Lust Review: All Hail This Satanic Sex Party

26 May 2016 8:40 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Teen Lust is definitely a dubious title. It's not one you want to order on the company dime while on a business trip. Nor do you want it read back to you while Visa runs a credit fraud check. And it's probably not a title you want your spouse spotting during that end of the month bill pay. Perhaps that's why we haven't heard too much about it yet. People are afraid. The movie may be hampered by it's gleefully inappropriate nomenclature. But that saucy title barely scratches at the surface of what hides behind it.

Yes, lovers of 80s sex comedies are in for a real treat. And the movie certainly trumps the idea that Hollywood has run out of original ideas. We, as true movie fans, just have to dig a litter deeper. If Teen Lust had of been released in 1986, or even in 1996, untouched, we'd be celebrating its anniversary as a classic. »
