The Third Man review – torn between heaven and hell, a classic noir

25 June 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Blustering, conceited, charming – Orson Welles is still spellbinding in Carol Reed’s compelling parable of guilt, now rereleased six decades on

With every new viewing, the resurrection of Harry Lime looks to me less secular. This classic 1949 noir – written by Graham Greene and directed by Carol Reed and now on rerelease – is a compelling parable of guilt. Joseph Cotten plays the down-on-his-luck pulp thriller writer Holly Martins, just arrived in postwar Vienna, a city carved up by the victorious allies, and swarming with chancers and black-marketeers. He’s been invited by his old pal Harry Lime to take up a job – or maybe simply be a loyal, tame witness to his bogus disappearance.

Defiance: Season Three Ratings

16 June 2015 3:54 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Last year, the second season of Defiance was way down in the ratings. How will the series perform in season three -- will the numbers get better or fall lower? Will this Syfy series be cancelled or renewed for a fourth season? Stay tuned.

Defiance takes place in the year 2047 -- some 30 years after various alien races arrived on Earth. The town of Defiance (what used to be St. Louis) stands as an example of how humans and aliens can live harmoniously (mostly) together. The cast includes Grant Bowler, Julie Benz, Stephanie Leonidas, Jaime Murray, Tony Curran, Graham Greene, Jesse Rath, Trenna Keating, Anna Hopkins, Nicole Munoz, Lee Tergesen, Conrad Coates, and Nichole Galicia.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart »

Radha Mitchell And More Set For The Shack

7 June 2015 10:13 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The cameras are about to start rolling on Exam director Stuart Hazeldine’s latest, the adaptation of William Paul Young’s 2007 novel The Shack. He’s just added some new actors to the cast, including Radha Mitchell, Graham Greene and Aviv Alush.Adapted by John Fusco from Young’s book, the story follows a man (Sam Worthington) whose youngest daughter is kidnapped during a family holiday. Evidence turns up in an abandoned shack to suggest she was murdered, which stymies the case. But then, four years later, he receives a note, apparently from God, inviting him to go back to the ruined building. He accepts, against his better judgment, and what he finds there changes his life forever. As it turns out, he might be in luck twice over, as Greene is on to play Male Papa, a calm and serene representation of the deity, with Spencer playing the female take. »

'Buena Vista' producer readies four new Cuban docs

15 May 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Buena Vista Social Club producer Rosa Bosch is in Cannes with a slate of four new feature documentaries, all of which are to be made in Cuba as the country begins to open itself up to international production.

The first one to shoot will be Havana Autos And Architecture, based on the book by celebrated British architect Norman Foster and journalist Mauricio Vicent.

The film is being made through Bosch’s company Cuban Star, and Ivorypress, the company run by Elena Ochoa Foster.

“The project comes out of a visit by Norman Foster to Havana and his falling love with the whole place and making a very unique link between the architecture and the car,” said Bosch.

The film will be based around six stories of old-timers who keep their cars “going on forever and forever”. Through those stories, the film aims to paint a portrait of the country’s 50 years old political isolation and to »

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Stone (Thrillingly) Assassinates Truth While Investigating Kennedy Assassination

14 May 2015 6:22 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'JFK' movie with Kevin Costner as Jim Garrison 'JFK' assassination movie: Gripping political drama gives added meaning to 'Rewriting History' If it's an Oliver Stone film, it must be bombastic, sentimental, clunky, and controversial. With the exception of "clunky," JFK is all of the above. It is also riveting, earnest, dishonest, moving, irritating, paranoid, and, more frequently than one might expect, outright brilliant. In sum, Oliver Stone's 1991 political thriller about a determined district attorney's investigation of the assassination of U.S. president John F. Kennedy is a slick piece of propaganda that mostly works both dramatically and cinematically. If only some of the facts hadn't gotten trampled on the way to film illustriousness. With the exception of John Williams' overemphatic score – Oliver Stone films need anything but overemphasis – JFK's technical and artistic details are put in place to extraordinary effect.

Longmire Season Three Blu-Ray Review

19 March 2015 7:55 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Longmire is an absolute anomaly in the world of television, which could have something to do with the fact that it was pulled from A&E, despite consistently high ratings for the network. It’s also the reason that it was something of a no-brainer that it would be picked up by someone else, and season four will air on Netflix later in the year.

Where the first two seasons pulled us slowly into the depths of Sheriff Walt Longmire’s life on the sprawling plains of Wyoming, the third season is like the hammer blow that follows the slow, methodical wind-up.

The second season ended by bringing a lot of forces to the fore in a move of plot construction that brilliantly weaves angles and conspiracies into a show that actually makes it difficult to look away. The third season spins this all together, but uses a mode of »

Longmire Season 3 Now on DIsc

7 March 2015 10:04 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The wonderfully underrated Longmire completed its third season last year and was then canceled by A&E for reasons beyond understanding. After some protracted negotiations amidst a fury of wronged fans taking to social media to save the series, Netflix announced they have picked up the series for a fourth season to air later this year.

Burbank, CA (February 23, 2015) – The stunning skies of Wyoming, and the mysteries beneath them, have never been more enthralling than in the unfolding episodes of Longmire, the popular A&E-turned-Netflix television series.  Those cinematic visuals and intense situations have also never looked better than in the full 1080p HD presentation of Warner Archive Collection’s Blu-ray™ release of Longmire, Season 3, available now via your favorite online retailers.

Warner Archive Collection’s release of Longmire, Season 3 on Blu-ray™ includes all 10 episodes in a three-disc set, as well a documentary entitled “The Ghost in the Storm,” which »

From Kubrick to Marilyn Monroe, Oscar Has a Stellar List of Shut-Outs

13 February 2015 4:54 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There are 195 individuals nominated for Oscar this year. And when the winners are named Feb. 22, they will become part of film history, joining such greats as Billy Wilder, Ingrid Bergman, Ben Hecht and Walt Disney.

But 80% of the contenders will go home empty-handed. However, there is good news: They are in good company as well.

Here is a sampling of nominees that didn’t win: “Citizen Kane,” “Chinatown” and “Star Wars”; directors Alfred Hitchcock, Howard Hawks, Stanley Kubrick and Ingmar Bergman; writers Tennessee Williams, Arthur Miller, Dashiell Hammett, John Steinbeck, Graham Greene, Harold Pinter and David Mamet; actors Gloria Swanson in “Sunset Blvd.”; Audrey Hepburn in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”; and Peter O’Toole in “Lawrence of Arabia.”

They managed to do Ok, though.

It’s hard to say why they didn’t win. Sometimes tastes change. Sometimes there’s too much competition in one year. Frank Capra’s 1939 “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington »

Film Review: ‘Chuck Norris Vs. Communism’

5 February 2015 8:27 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Don’t be alarmed: “Chuck Norris Vs. Communism” is not a remake of “Invasion U.S.A.,” the 1985 Cannon Films extravaganza that pitted the double-barreled action star against hordes of Russian guerrillas trying to turn America into a Soviet republic. But Norris’ films, and others like them, may have played a small but significant role in stoking the fires of dissent in 1980s Romania — or so argues director Ilinca Calugareanu’s lively documentary about censorship and cinephilia in the darkest days of the Eastern Bloc. Bolstered by an irresistible title and stylish, re-enactment-heavy direction from first-timer Calugareanu, this breezily entertaining bonbon can expect ample fest and niche theatrical exposure, plus brisk international TV sales.

Calugareanu’s film is nominally an extended love letter to Irinia Nistor, a noted film critic who began her career as a translator for Romania’s lone state-run television network (Tvr), where she bristled at her role in »

The fantasist: The comic art of Woody Allen

24 January 2015 12:49 PM, PST | The Moving Arts Journal | See recent The Moving Arts Journal news »

Everyone knows Woody Allen. At least, everyone thinks they know Woody Allen. His plumage is easily identifiable: horn-rimmed glasses, baggy suit, wispy hair, kvetching demeanor, ironic sense of humor, acute fear of death. As is his habitat: New York City, though recently he has flown as far afield as London, Barcelona, and Paris. His likes are well known: Bergman, Dostoevsky, New Orleans jazz. So too his dislikes: spiders, cars, nature, Wagner records, the entire city of Los Angeles. Whether or not these traits represent the true Allen, who’s to say? It is impossible to tell, with Allen, where cinema ends and life begins, an obfuscation he readily encourages. In the late nineteen-seventies, disillusioned with the comedic success he’d found making such films as Sleeper (1973), Love and Death (1975), and Annie Hall (1977), he turned for darker territory with Stardust Memories (1980), a film in which, none too surprisingly, he plays a »

Acting Oscar Nominations for Foreign-Language Performances

21 January 2015 8:08 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

With the addition of Marion Cotillard’s lead actress nomination for the Belgian film Two Days, One Night, 32 actors and actresses have been nominated for their performances in foreign-language films. Cotillard was nominated for her role as a young mother and wife struggling to salvage her job in Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardennes’ film, which was chosen as Belgium’s submission to the foreign-language category but failed to secure a spot on the Oscar shortist.

Though her performance did land a Critics’ Choice Award nomination, the Oscar nomination did come as a surprise for many pundits.

Cotillard was previously nominated for the French foreign-language film La Vie En Rose (2007) and won. She is one of six actors or actresses to win for a non-English role and is also the most recent winner.

The first acting nomination for a foreign-language performance went to Sophia Loren in 1962 for »

In a Year of 26 Festivals

Something of his sad freedom

As he rode the tumbril

Should come to me, driving,

Saying the names

Tollund, Grauballe, Nebelgard,

Watching the pointing hands

Of country people,

Not knowing their tongue.

Out here in Jutland

In the old man-killing parishes

I will feel lost,

Unhappy and at home.

Seamus Heaney, The Tollund Man

It ended, like all journeys do, in Solitude, a long way from any cinema. Solitude—or rather Zolitūde, in Latvian—is a suburb of Riga, four miles as the crow flies from the fancy Scandi-Gothic-Art Nouveau city centre; six miles on foot if the pedestrian avoids diversions. But by the time I reached Solitude on that cold December Saturday afternoon, however, my inadvertent divagations must have pushed the total to the ten-mile mark. I'd looked at maps prior to departing from my hotel, of course but deliberately didn't bring one along (not a fan); I don't »
