With Tate Modern’s Giacometti retrospective soon to close, here’s a more intimate encounter with the great Swiss artist, courtesy of Geoffrey Rush. Meanwhile, Armie Hammer is elegantly witty as the American writer who came for a brief portrait sitting, but stayed for a very odd sort of friendship.

Stanley Tucci has had a long and glorious film career, although some of his memories may be a bit hazy. »
So much for on-set bonding!
Stanley Tucci was on British morning show Lorraine on Wednesday when the topic of conversation turned to his upcoming movie, The Children Act, with Emma Thompson and his excitement to work with her for the first time. After singing her praises, the actor hilariously realized he had in fact worked with the British actress before — and very recently.
“She’s incredible. I’d never worked with her before, we sort of knew each other slightly,” Tucci, 56, said before quickly backtracking. “Oh no, that’s not true! We did Beauty and the Beast together, forgive me. »

The chances are good that this year’s Emmy for Best Movie/Mini Supporting Actor will go to a first-time champ since only one of the six contenders is a past Emmy winner: Stanley Tucci (“Feud: Bette and Joan”). Will Emmy voters spread the wealth, or will Tucci add to his collection? Be sure to make your own […] »

We had the pleasure of sitting down with the talented filmmaker earlier this year at the Berlin film festival, where he discusses his established interest in the aforementioned artist, portrayed here by Geoffrey Rush. He also explains how he took a film that deliberately thrives in the notion of tedium, feel so engaging – and why not taking a role in the project allowed him to focus so heavily on getting the tone right.
He also speaks about where he discovered his passion for film, and what he believes the future holds for independent cinema. Finally he speaks about fishing, and just how bad at it he is.
Was Giacometti someone you knew a lot about before starting this?
Oh my God, yeah. I knew »

With a host of impressive, eclectic projects to his name – Armie Hammer is an actor you might want to start paying real attention (Call Me By Your Name isn’t far away now, after all). His latest is Final Portrait, where he plays journalist James Lord, who has the pleasure/burden of posing for a portrait for Swiss artist Giacometti (Geoffrey Rush) – in a film directed by Stanley Tucci.
We sat down with Hammer at the Berlin film festival to speak about the role at hand – and what it was like collaborating with both Rush and Tucci. He speaks about his own ambitions to one day direct, his struggles in becoming the actor he is today, and why he’s started to turn to independent features. He also goes on to discuss his nomadic upbringing, his future project Freak Shift with Ben Wheatley, and the downsides to being famous. »

Final Portrait, 2017
Directed by Stanley Tucci
American writer and art-lover James Lord pays a visit to Paris in 1964 and is asked by his friend, artist Alberto Giacometti, to sit for a portrait. It should only take a few days so the flattered Lord agrees. But the creative process takes longer and is more complicated and unpredictable than he could ever have imagined.
It’s ten years since Stanley Tucci last stepped behind the camera: his last film as a director was Blind Date, when he also starred opposite Patricia Clarkson. For his latest, Final Portrait, he doesn’t venture away from the director’s chair, except for writing the script.

In the fifth episode of the FX limited series “Feud,” aptly titled “And the Winner Is … (The Oscars of 1963),” bitter rivals Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange) and Bette Davis (Susan Sarandon) go head-to-head at the Oscars. Never mind that Crawford wasn’t even nominated: She manages to steal the night by offering to accept the golden statue on behalf of the other lead actress nominees.
And now Lange and Sarandon find themselves nominated against each other in probably the most competitive category of the year: lead actress in a limited series or TV movie. But don’t draw any parallels to the actresses they played on screen; Lange assures us there are no real-life similarities. “I was so happy the day I saw the nominations and realized the six main actors in the piece were all nominated,” Lange says, referring not only to her and Sarandon, but also their supporting cast of Judy Davis, Jackie Hoffman »

The French actor Clémence Poésy, 34, is best known for her roles in The Tunnel, In Bruges and as Fleur Delacour in the Harry Potter films. In Stanley Tucci’s film of the life of artist Alberto Giacometti she plays opposite Geoffrey Rush and Armie Hammer. She lives in Paris and east London, and earlier this year gave birth to her first child, Liam.
I was constantly scared of her being too much. But Stanley had his film very clear in his head, and knew that the story needed that burst of energy at some points. »

In his exclusive interview for Men’s Health’s September cover story, Reynolds trashed his culinary skills, saying that if he were to cook he could very well start a “structure fire.”
“I am not innovative in the kitchen,” the Hitman’s Bodyguard star said. “The firemen will kick down our door, take my wife away, and give her a better life.”
It should come as no surprise, then, that when it comes to his go-to cheat day meal, »

For its twenty-fifth anniversary, Alexandre Rockwell’s 1992 Sundance winner “In the Soup” is asking for a big gift — but a necessary one. Indie distributor Factory 25 has now launched a crowdfunding campaign to finance the repair and preservation of the film, aiming to make it available digitally and on Blu-ray for the first time.
And while the allure of catching the pioneering feature — the one that beat out “Reservoir Dogs” at the lauded festival, no less — is compelling enough on its own, the real reason for the urgency of the campaign is something else entirely: without this restoration, the film will likely no longer exist. The only existing archival print of the feature is badly damaged, and without the addition of crowdfunded financing, Grady will be unable to restore the film.

As it does every July, just after the Comic-Con dust has settled and the year’s third quarter begins barreling toward a close, the fall festival landscape is coming into focus, providing an Oscar season snapshot before we dive headlong into the fray.
Announcements emanating from Venice, Telluride, Colo., Toronto, New York, and London have signaled the starting gun as studios jockey to best position their prestige product — with an eye toward leveraging the awards circuit, of course.
Kicking things off will be the Venice Film Festival on Aug. 30 and the world premiere of Alexander Payne’s “Downsizing,” news of which was broken by Variety. That early drop ought to help rip the band-aid off the film’s bizarre logline — a man agrees to have himself physically shrunk in order to live out the rest of his days in one of many government-subsidized mini-resorts — and set Paramount’s central player up for a run at the gold »
