The Top 10 Movies Of 2010: Josh's Take

31 December 2010 2:00 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Are you top ten-ed out? Probably? But damn it, I didn't see a zillion movies this year (Ok, around 150) to not earn the right to subject you to a list of my 10 favorites. Honestly this list is probably more for me than for you guys. As we head into the awards season (People's Choice is just days away, get your powder blue tux ready!), what better way to get into the right mindset of endless accolades than to bestow my own. So here we go folks... the top 10 films of 2010* according to me.

*List void on January 1st when I'll surely change my mind about a few of these.

Top 10 (In Alphabetical Order)...

"127 Hours"

At face value a gimmick of a film, but so much more in the hands of Danny Boyle. By turns contemplative, visceral, epic and intimate, "127 Hours" added up to one of the more moving pieces of cinema this year (and, »

Top Ten Movies of 2010

I feel as if 2010 marked a turning point in movies. Sure, we had our share of blockbusters with Alice in Wonderland crossing $1 billion worldwide and Iron Man 2 and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse joining it as the three lone live-action films to cross $300 million. However, after Inception and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, the only other films to cross the $200 million mark domestically were animated features -- Toy Story 3, Despicable Me, Shrek Forever After and How to Train Your Dragon. What does that say about this year's crop of films?

Well, first off, I think we all know a film doesn't need to make over $200 million at the box-office for it to be deemed "good." And this year it wasn't as much about the big blockbuster films as much as it was about the little guy that could, and smaller, indie films hit quite a stride. »

“Rabbit Hole” director John Cameron Mitchell – For Your Consideration

28 December 2010 1:16 PM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: The “Rabbit Hole” DVD sat atop my pile of For Your Consideration screeners for longer than I care to admit. Danny Boyle’s “127 Hours” moved ahead of it on the list of required viewing. So did Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan,” the Coen Brothers’ “True Grit,” and a repeat screening of “The Social Network.”

After all, I’m not an outdoorsman, so what chance do I have of getting pinned beneath a boulder? For that matter, I’m no ballerina, cowboy, or computer genius. Watching those films brought no fear.

But I am a parent. And so the idea of watching a film about a couple mourning the loss of their little boy was terrifying. Imagine my surprise, then, when I finally watched John Cameron Mitchell’s tender adaptation of David Lindsay-Abaire’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play, only to realize it was the best film I’d seen this year. »

Oscar ballots mailed: Where do things stand?

27 December 2010 11:15 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The ballots for the 83rd Annual Academy Awards have been mailed today, beginning the all-important three-week-long period before they’re due on Jan. 14. Not much has changed in the past week since my last round of predictions (I am now putting Natalie Portman above Annette Bening for Best Actress, though I think the race is still too close to call). But I have been interested to watch as many of my Oscar-prognosticator colleagues have changed their predicted Best Picture winner from The King's Speech to The Social Network. Several of you have wondered in the comments why I haven’t switched my No. »

Rabbit Hole

25 December 2010 8:27 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Rabbit Hole

Directed by: John Cameron Mitchell

Cast: Nicole Kidman, Aaron Eckhart, Dianne Wiest, Miles Teller

Running Time: 1 hr 32 mins

Rating: R

Release Date: December 25, 2010 (Chicago)

Plot: A husband (Eckhart) and a wife (Kidman) try different ways of dealing with this loss of their young son.

Who’S It For?: Filmgoers especially compelled by dramas like Little Children and Ordinary People, movies that have a gothic suburban energy and feature adults who are not entirely sure what they should be doing during intense times in their lives. With that being said, the material might be a bit sensitive for some, but it is handled without an exploitation.

Expectations: From this premise, it seemed like this definitely would not be like Mitchell’s previous Shortbus. It was curious to see how the story would explore grief. Could it handle the topic with the same craziness as something like Lars von Trier’s Antichrist? »

New Rabbit Hole Poster and UK Trailer

24 December 2010 12:12 AM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Today a new UK trailer and quad poster from John Cameron Mitchell‘s emotional drama Rabbit Hole have been released.

Rabbit Hole is a vivid, hopeful, honest and unexpectedly witty portrait of a family searching for what remains possible in the most impossible of all situations.

Becca and Howie Corbett (Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart) are returning to their everyday existence in the wake of a shocking, sudden loss. Just eight months ago, they were a happy suburban family with everything they wanted. Now, they are caught in a maze of memory, longing, guilt, recrimination, sarcasm and tightly controlled rage from which they cannot escape. While Becca finds pain in the familiar, Howie finds comfort.

The shifts come in abrupt, unforeseen moments. Becca hesitantly opens up to her opinionated, loving mother (Dianne Wiest) and secretly reaches out to the teenager involved in the accident that changed everything (Miles Teller); while »

Film Review: Nicole Kidman, Aaron Eckhart Avoid Melodrama in Moving ‘Rabbit Hole’

23 December 2010 1:54 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Rating: 4.5/5.0

Chicago – John Cameron Mitchell’s “Rabbit Hole” tells a story not uncommon to cinema in its exploration of the emotional minefield that comes after the loss of a child but it does so with such restraint and humanity that it sets itself apart. With some of the best performances of the year from Nicole Kidman, Aaron Eckhart, and Dianne Wiest, this is one of the strongest dramas of the awards season.

Melodramatic writers and directors have often used the death of a son to manipulate audiences with clichéd tearjerkers but honestly portraying such raw emotions is much more difficult. David Lindsay-Abaire’s excellent script for “Rabbit Hole” doesn’t focus on the death or even the days shortly thereafter, instead turning to how a couple heals months later, after the emotional scabs have formed. With arguably career-best turns from Kidman and Eckhart along with a subtlety rarely found in films like this, »

Interview: “Hedwig”’s John Cameron Mitchell is Absolutely Queer (Even When He's Directing Nicole Kidman)

22 December 2010 12:32 PM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

John Cameron Mitchell

How do you top the stunning gender-bending musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch (2001) that made such a big name for its enormously talented writer-director (and actor) John Cameron Mitchell? Mitchell did it by putting together a partially-improvised, non-linear, very sexually explicit film experiment called Shortbus (2006).

But how in the world do you then top Shortbus?

How about with a quiet, moving movie adaptation of a tasteful Tony-Award-winning play starring A-List actors like Nicole Kidman and Dianne Wiest that’s already getting talk of Oscar nominations?

I know: it sounds like the work of some completely different director, doesn’t it? But to hear Mitchell tell it, his new movie Rabbit Hole (reviewed here), about two parents dealing with the death of their four-year-old boy eight months earlier, is exactly in keeping with his existing body of work, that the characters are just as “queer” as those in Hedwig and Shortbus. »

Take Three: Season 1 Wrap

19 December 2010 10:26 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Craig here with a quick pre-Xmas wrap-up of season #1 of Take Three. If you have a very short memory, that'd be the Sunday Film Experience series which looked at three notable performances from a supporting or character actor's work. 

The Big Cs: Considine, Cartwright, Cheadle

Last week’s actor Paddy Considine was the last Take Three for a spell (it's seasonal shenanigans, then everything Oscar here at The Film Experience). We began all the way back in May with Veronica Cartwright. All 29 Take Threes have been a pleasure to write. I've often found new admiration for the actors featured. It's fascinating what a spot of research and a few rewatches can do: who knew that I’d come to realise how much of a Peter Lorre fan I was had I not written about a trio of his perfs.

I veered from the strict definition of what constitutes a character »

Rabbit Hole Review

19 December 2010 7:10 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Rabbit Hole is simplistic on the outside. But once opened, the honest portrayal of grief can leave one with a myriad of emotions that strengthen the further you get from the film. Recovering from the loss of a child is a process that people deal with in different ways, and that strain can pull the fibers out of a marriage and fray the family around them. Yet, riding performances that examine the depth of real human emotion and dimension, this isn’t the one-trick pony that it could have been. Instead of treating the theme with nothing but morose sadness, director John Cameron Mitchell utilizes levity and threads it throughout with an earnestness that is at once unfamiliar yet comforting. So hit the jump to follow me further down Rabbit Hole. Becca (Nicole Kidman) and Howie (Aaron Eckhart) lost their son eight months prior, and their relationship is strained as Becca struggles to recover. »

The Notable Films of 2011: Part Two

The Beaver

Opens: March 23rd 2011

Cast: Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster, Anton Yelchin, Jennifer Lawrence

Director: Jodie Foster

Summary: A depressed toy company CEO with a failed marriage starts to wear a beaver puppet on his hand as a form of therapy, much to the initial bemusement of his family. He soon begins talking only through the character.

Analysis: This time last year, excitement was quietly brewing for "The Beaver". Gibson's drunken tirade a few years before hand wasn't forgotten, but enough time had passed that this looked to be the year of a potential comeback for the actor.

The thriller remake "Edge of Darkness" and this were his first on screen roles in ten years, 'Beaver' is also his "Maverick" co-star Foster's return to the director's chair fifteen years after her last feature. The script topped the 2008 Black List and scored rave reviews for its blend of sophisticated humor and sad pathos, »
