‘Inherent Vice': Paul Thomas Anderson on His Trip Through Thomas Pynchon’s L.A.

17 December 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“What are we talking about? I’m lost,” says Paul Thomas Anderson midway through a lunch interview, as he runs a hand quizzically through his unkempt brown hair. It’s a reminder that a conversation with Anderson can be akin to one of his own movies: a jam-packed jostle of characters, ideas, exuberant digressions and narrative curlicues that somehow align to form an inimitable whole. Still picking through his appetizer course, Anderson has already held forth on his love for Lena Dunham, “The Hunger Games,” his inability to read books that friends give him as gifts, and his habit of walking on the outer edges of his feet. But mostly, we are talking about “Inherent Vice,” Anderson’s seventh feature film — the first-ever authorized screen adaptation of a novel by National Book Award-winning author Thomas Pynchon.

The movie, bowing Dec. 12 in limited release, and opening wide Jan. 9, returns Anderson to »

A Guide to Paul Thomas Anderson Movies Streaming on Netflix

12 December 2014 7:00 AM, PST | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

-Tara Aquino

If you’re planning on seeing Inherent Vice today, here’s a warning: You’ll need multiple viewings to wrap your mind around what happens. You can chalk it up to its equally dense source novel of the same name, written by Thomas Pynchon, or you can attribute that to its director, Paul Thomas Anderson, a man who seems to get a kick out of filling your brain with more than you can process at once.

Just take a look at the movies he’s got streaming on Netflix. All thinking-man’s dramas, the films wholly represent PTA’s signature style: at once brooding, beautiful, and baffling.

Anderson took a risk with The Master, blowing open the world of Scientology in an inexplicit way. Here, Joaquin Phoenix plays Freddie Quell, a World War II veteran struggling with his Ptsd and reintegrating himself into society. »

Screen Actors Guild Awards recognize ‘Birdman’, ‘Boyhood’, ‘Modern Family’

10 December 2014 1:22 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominations were revealed Wednesday morning, serving as yet another precursor on the long road to the Oscars.

In the film categories, Birdman was the big winner, scoring four nominations, including for Michael Keaton, Edward Norton and Emma Stone, as well as the collective ensemble cast. Boyhood followed right in its footsteps with three nods for Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette and another ensemble nomination.

The big surprises of the morning’s nominations started with Jake Gyllenhaal for Nightcrawler, a bubble contender in a crowded Best Actor race, Jennifer Aniston for Cake, a bubble contender in a disappointingly less crowded Best Actress race, Robert Duvall in the poorly reviewed The Judge and Naomi Watts for St. Vincent (Watts was in Birdman as well, but that must’ve slipped SAG’s minds).

SAG Nominations and Announcement of A New Feature

10 December 2014 7:38 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

As some of you may know, I'm a bit of a jack(ass) of all trades. I follow the film industry for Lr, and critique films. But I'm also an actor, I front a rock band, I'm a DJ, film editor, and director as well. Basically, when it comes to entertainment, there's nothing I don't do. For some time now, I've been mulling over bringing some of my other interests to Lr, and I'll be starting with the SAG Awards. How? Well, I've been a member of SAG for 6 years now and I also am part of the voting process. That means every year I am sent screeners of all the films being considered for awards.

Here's where a new running feature comes into play:

As I start receiving these screeners, I will write special reviews for each one and publish them here. Then, as we near the voting deadline, »

How to be SAG Snubbed Even When You're Nominated

10 December 2014 7:06 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

As is our annual tradition we like to peruse the credits of the SAG Ensemble nods to see who got left out despite their film's nomination. The Film Experience started this kind of analysis ten years ago when The Aviator had some really dumb exclusions and inclusions but lots of other sites now cover the injustice. We never get credit for starting this line of Norma Rae righteous anger but, that said, at least a lot of people have it now.

Did SAG think her face looked like she'd licked a homelessman's ass?

If you aren't familiar SAG uses a system whereby only actors with solitary title cards are official nominees for the Cast category. This means if you are famous in a bit part and have a good agent you are more likely to be an official nominee than the unknown who delivered a better performance in possibly a »

Movie Review – The Theory Of Everything (2014)

1 December 2014 3:38 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Theory Of Everything, 2014.

Directed by James Marsh.

Starring Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones, Charlie Cox, Harry Lloyd, David Thewlis, Emily Watson and Christian McKay.

Synopsis:

A look at the relationship between Stephen Hawking (Redmayne) and Jane Hawking (Jones), from their meeting at Cambridge until Hawking’s worldwide success.

There should be no boundaries to human endeavor. We are all different. However bad life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. While there’s life, there is hope.

Biopics often work most when the film in question isn’t out to praise something to the high heavens or slander into the ground, but rather find a comfortable middle ground peppered with a touch of controversy. The Theory Of Everything could have been formulaic Oscar bait of the highest caliber, depicting the relationship of Stephen and Jane Hawking as a perfect love affair full of happiness with no strains along the way, »

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.

Eddie Redmayne – Theory of Everything – another movie to see this weekend

28 November 2014 9:19 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Another great movie to see this weekend is “The Theory of Everything,” starring Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones. Eddie Redmayne was the recipient of this year’s “Hollywood Breakout Performance Award” at the Hollywood Film Awards. Below write-up about Eddie Redmayne and his chances at Oscar: “Today, the theatrical release is beginning for The Theory of Everything, a biopic about noted physicist Stephen Hawking. The role of Hawking is played to perfection by surefire Academy Award nominee Eddie Redmayne, while the role of his loving and supportive wife Jane is portrayed by almost certain fellow Oscar nominee Felicity Jones. With the film now out in limited release, it can attempt to win over audiences in the same that it won over critics on the festival circuit. From there on, it’s a matter of seeing if the movie can appeal to Oscar voters. Personally, I think it’ll do just fine, »

Movie Review – The Theory of Everything (2014)

24 November 2014 9:35 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Theory of Everything, 2014.

Directed by James Marsh.

Starring Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones, Charlie Cox, Harry Lloyd, David Thewlis, Emily Watson and Christian McKay.

Synopsis:

A look at the relationship between Stephen Hawking (Redmayne) and Jane Hawking (Jones), from their meeting at Cambridge until Hawking’s worldwide success.

There have been many biopics that show a person changing and aging over a long timeframe; some work at realistically showing that, others are just hopeless. The saddening progression of Stephen Hawking’s Motor Neuron Disease will shock and amaze viewers during The Theory of Everything, with stunning work from the make-up department, and an Oscar-worthy performance from Eddie Redmayne.

Come late December, when promotional posters are plastered everywhere for The Theory of Everything, you will be bombarded with 4 and 5 stars littering the advertisement, with quote upon quote heralding the performances, most specifically its lead.

20 November 2014 10:18 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The producers of The Theory of Everything – Anthony McCarten (also the screenwriter) and Lisa Bruce – talk in this video shot at Deadline’s The Contenders event about the years-long process of filming the love story of physicist Stephen Hawking and first wife Jane Hawking. Bruce also talks here with Deadline’s Pete Hammond about the strong female character at the film’s heart whose presence (and memoir) made this biopic unusual among so many Hollywood movies.
