Francis Ford Coppola on His Longing to Be ‘Impressive’

29 April 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Francis Ford coppola has won nearly every award in the book, with multiple Oscars and prizes from guilds, critics groups and festivals. And on April 29, he will add one more kudo to that list: Turner Classic Movies will honor him with a hand and footprint ceremony at Hollywood’s Tcl Chinese Theater.

But Coppola’s industry start was both auspicious and far from auteur.

On May 10, 1962, Coppola won the top prize in UCLA’s Samuel Goldwyn Foundation Creative Writing Contest. It netted him $2,000 plus a front-page story in Variety. As the filmmaker told Variety recently, “Two thousand was a vast sum for someone who didn’t have more than a hundred dollars.”

He started work with king of the low-budget pics Roger Corman, writing and directing the 1963 horror pic “Dementia 13” on a budget of $40,000 and a shooting schedule of nine days. Within a decade, he became one of the »

Film Review: ‘Papa: Hemingway in Cuba’

27 April 2016 4:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Despite its obvious sincerity of purpose, and the cachet of its having been filmed on locations where the real-life drama actually unfolded, “Papa: Hemingway in Cuba” is disappointingly plodding and ham-fistedly obvious in its attempts to offer an up-close and personal portrait of a mood-swinging, self-loathing 59-year-old Ernest Hemingway. The movie — reportedly the first Us production filmed in Havana in more than five decades — is based on an autobiographical screenplay by the late Denne Bart Petitclerc, who was befriended by the legendary author in 1959, and witnessed Hemingway at his most charismatic and least excusable. But “Papa” never transcends the tropes of a formulaic biopic that views its famous subject through the eyes of a worshipful young devotee.

Ticketbuyers may be lured by the somewhat misleading TV spots that make this rare directorial effort by veteran producer Bob Yari (“Crash”) look like an action-adventure set against the backdrop of the Cuban Revolution. »

Papa: Hemingway in Cuba review – Hollywood's Havana horror

27 April 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The first Hollywood film to be shot in Cuba since Castro isn’t close but no cigar – the Ernest Hemingway biopic is an oceangoing embarrassment

Papa: Hemingway in Cuba holds the distinction of being the first Hollywood production to shoot on the island nation since 1959. But other film-makers looking to leave their mark need not fret, as there’s still an opportunity to make the first American film shot there since Fidel Castro came to power that isn’t a complete, mortifying embarrassment.

Papa is another biopic-through-the-lens of a young acolyte, similar to the recent debacle Nina, though this time its screenplay was written by the witness himself. Giovanni Ribisi is Ed Myers (name changed from the late Denne Bart Petitclerc), a newspaperman in Miami in the late 1950s. Abandoned by his father at a young age, as we’re told through lugubrious narration, he turned to the books of »

“In order to write about life, you must first live it.” – Ernest Hemingway

The first Hollywood film to shoot on location in Cuba since the 1959 revolution, Papa:Hemingway in Cuba is the true-life story of a young journalist who finds a father figure in legendary author Ernest Hemingway.  Their relationship began in the late 1950’s when Ed Myers, then a junior reporter at The Miami Herald, wrote a fan letter to his idol. Myers thought he was being pranked when the larger than life Hemingway phoned the newsroom a week later, inviting him to Havana.

”Good letter, kid,” the famous voice growled. ”You like to fish?“

Hidden away at his private estate with his wife Mary, the elusive author mentors Myers in fishing, drinking, and finding his voice while the Cuban Revolution boils up around them. In this turbulent landscape, observing an icon in his twilight years, Myers discovers his strength »

Hemingway Proves His Point in 'Papa: Hemingway in Cuba' Exclusive Clip

21 April 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The legendary Ernest Hemingway was on-hand, as a journalist, covering many of the 20th century's biggest events: World War I, World War II, and the Spanish Civil War. He was also present in Havana for the Cuban Revolution.

The new biopic "Papa: Hemingway in Cuba" traces some of his time there, with a particular focus on his friendship with Denne Bart Petitclerc (Giovanni Ribisi). In this exclusive sneak peek, Hemingway (Adrian Sparks), known affectionately as Papa, apologizes for rambling to his new acquaintance.

"You're among friends here," Petitclerc assures him.

And then Hemingway asks him to choose a number between one and 10. When Petitclerc picks the number six, Hemingway starts scratching away with a pen and paper. The results prove that the famous writer never needed an excess of words to get a point across.

Netflix May Pay Millions To Complete A Classic, Unfinished Project

5 April 2016 9:43 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Netflix has been dipping its streaming giant toes into more and more corners of the entertainment business with their move to producing films along with streaming TV shows. Now it looks like the company may be about to help a famously unfinished film finally get seen: Orson Welles' The Other Side of the Wind. According to Wellesnet, Netflix has been in talks with the rights holders/producers for The Other Side of the Wind, Oja Kodar, Filip Jan Rymsza, Frank Marshall and Jens Koethner Kaul, to pay over $5 million for a two-picture deal that would include the finished film for streaming and theatrical release rights, and a companion documentary. So far, only Kodar has refused to sign off on the deal. The Other Side of the Wind has a long history beset with problems. Orson Welles originally came up with the idea in 1937 after a feud with writer Ernest Hemingway. »

Watch: New Trailer for 'Papa: Hemingway in Cuba' Starring Giovanni Ribisi And Minka Kelly

24 March 2016 11:19 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Making a movie about a famous writer is a difficult undertaking for many reasons. But James Ponsoldt somehow managed to avoid most of the pitfalls as such with “The End of the Tour,” last year's winsome, loving ode to David Foster Wallace. Similarly, Bennett Miller erected a commendable testament to Truman Capote back in 2005 with his Philip Seymour Hoffman-starring biopic. There's something to said for films like 2010's noble but erratic “Howl,” which starred James Franco as beat poet Allen Ginsberg, as well as the two big-screen Hunter Thompson adaptations, 1980's "Where the Buffalo Roam" and 1998's "Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas," both of which indulge in the author’s penchant for overkill.  Read More: James Ponsoldt's 'The End Of The Tour' Starring Jason Segel & Jesse Eisenberg So a movie about Ernest Hemingway is going to spark at least a flash of intrigue in any bibliophile. »

Ernest Hemingway was the great proselytizer of a good daiquiri and that small island off the coast of Florida.

The Bob Yari-directed film centers on a Miami Globe journalist Denne Petitclerc, played by Giovanni Ribisi, an avid Hemingway fan who gets an invite from the author (Adrian Sparks) to go on a fishing trip.
