Did you know that Kristen Stewart made history a week ago? The 24-year-old actress became the first American woman to win a prestigious Cesar Award, France's own version of the Academy Award. She also won it for an English-speaking role. Think about that for a second. This honor hasn't been bestowed upon Meryl Streep, Michelle Williams, Sigourney Weaver, Natalie Portman, Glenn Close, Susan Sarandon or any other globally acclaimed American actress over the past 30 years. No, it was Kristen Stewart who broke the French's reticence to reward anyone but their own. Stewart, an actress who continues to (mostly) put studio work behind her following a string of acclaimed performance in indie films over the past year. That career path continues with her next endeavor, the "Untitled Kelly Reichardt Project," In case the name is unfamiliar to you, Reichardt is an acclaimed director whose movies include festival favorites "Night Moves," "Meek's Cutoff" and "Wendy and Lucy. »

Marc Allégret: From André Gide lover to Simone Simon mentor (photo: Marc Allégret) (See previous post: "Simone Simon Remembered: Sex Kitten and Femme Fatale.") Simone Simon became a film star following the international critical and financial success of the 1934 romantic drama Lac aux Dames, directed by her self-appointed mentor – and alleged lover – Marc Allégret. The son of an evangelical missionary, Marc Allégret (born on December 22, 1900, in Basel, Switzerland) was to have become a lawyer. At age 16, his life took a different path as a result of his romantic involvement – and elopement to London – with his mentor and later "adoptive uncle" André Gide (1947 Nobel Prize winner in Literature), more than 30 years his senior and married to Madeleine Rondeaux for more than two decades. In various forms – including a threesome with painter Théo Van Rysselberghe's daughter Elisabeth – the Allégret-Gide relationship remained steady until the late '20s and their trip to »

Kristen Stewart feels like she is a victim, in many ways, of her own early success. In a revealing new interview she tells singer Patti Smith that she’s afraid “Twilight” and acting defines her when, in fact, she’s still trying to figure out who she is. “Camp X-Ray,” “Clouds of Sils Maria” and “Still Alice” all helped her stretch and shape her acting skills. And she talks excitedly about her next film, “Equals.” The science fiction romantic drama, written by Nathan Parker and directed by Drake Doremus, stars Nicholas Hoult, Pattinson buddy, Guy Pearce, and Jacki Weaver. ...Read More »

Written & Directed by Andrew Bujalski
It’s about midway through the new romantic-comedy Results that you realize the filmmakers have no clue what they’re trying to accomplish. Writer-director Andrew Bujalski loves his script so much that he doesn’t realize it’s unfilmable. There are three main characters, two separate stories, and zero reasons to care about what’s happening. With so many talented people doing perfectly good work on the screen, it’s baffling how this movie could be such a complete mess.
Trevor (Guy Pearce) is a fitness guru who practices what he preaches. He’s the picture of discipline; taking action only after he’s visualized a precise path to success. This dedication helped him build a great gym, but it’s also made him into a loner. Matters of the heart, after all, don’t care about quality control standards.

You might not remember, but a few years back, Nicolas Winding Refn looked to team up with Keanu Reeves for "Jekyll," a modern retelling of "Jekyll and Hyde." That project fell apart over scheduling issues and other reasons, but it looks like they've kept in touch and found something else to collaborate on. Reeves, "Drive" star Christina Hendricks, Jena Malone, Bella Heathcote, and Abbey Lee have all joined Elle Fanning in "The Neon Demon." For now, the lid is on the plot details, and all we know is that it's a female-driven horror flick. Refn has once again tapped Cliff Martinez to score the picture, with Dp Philippe Le Sourd (“The Grand Master”) lensing. Production starts on March 30th and this cast has put our anticipation for the flick sky high. [Variety] Mia Wasikowska and Guy Pearce are saddling up for the western thriller "Brimstone."

Eric Lavallee: Name me three of your favorite “2014 discoveries”…
Matthias Grunsky: The amazing “Collection de l’Art Brut” in Lausanne, Switzerland. The record “Lieblingsfarben und Tiere” of the German band “Element of Crime”. The exhibition of the spectacular black and white photographs of Sebastião Salgado: “Genesis”
Grunsky: The actors did the part of showing physical attraction. But really the characters have difficulties getting together and communicating. And we tried to emphasize that with the camera. Void spaces around them and lens choices were something we gave a lot of thought in that regard. Because Andrew and I felt that in most of her scenes we wanted to be close to Kat (Cobie Smulders), I mainly shot her with a 35 mm lens, while »
