The two have been the subject of romance rumors since 2013, and although they’ve never officially confirmed a relationship, multiple sources have told People the pair has been casually spending time together for years.

While in Paris, Holmes, 38, met up at a hotel with Foxx, 49, who had been in town to shoot his new Robin Hood movie. A source tells People Foxx attended a farewell dinner for the Leonardo DiCaprio-produced film set »

Notes On The Breaking Point, Alien: Covenant And The Return Of Twin Peaks

21 May 2017 3:50 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

God bless the Criterion Collection for their forthcoming Blu-ray of a nifty 2K restoration of The Breaking Point (1950), the second swipe at Ernest Hemingway’s novel To Have and Have Not, which is on the company’s release schedule for August 2017. You may have heard of the first version… Bogie, Bacall, Hawks, “You know how to whistle, don’t ya?” Remember that one? Well, this one, the story of a down-on-his-luck charter boat captain Harry Morgan (John Garfield) who gets manipulated into a deadly smuggling run to help make ends meet, is directed by Michael Curtiz, and it trades Hawks’ larky, Casablanca-derived vibe for something decidedly darker, a daylight-splashed noir that somehow ferrets out all the chiaroscuro shadows in Hemingway’s material nonetheless. Throughout The Breaking Point, but especially in the movie’s riveting second half when Morgan allows himself to get roped into a second, even more dangerous scheme, »

Notes on Criterion: August 2017 Releases Include Hopscotch, La Poison, and More

17 May 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

This summer (or winter, depending on where you live), the Criterion Collection will release five movies on Blu-ray and DVD that may be less familiar but are no less potentially fascinating. First up on August 8 is Michael Curtiz's The Breaking Point, arriving on Blu-ray for the first time. Curtiz will forever be remembered for Casablanca, but as a Hollywood studio veteran, he applied his talents to a bewildering range of material. Released the same year as the director's Young Man with a Horn (a musician's melodrama) and Bright Leaf, (pro-cigarette Southern drama), The Breaking Point stars John Garfield and Patricia Neal in an adaptation of Ernest Hemingway's novel about the financially-strapped captain of a charter boat who is drawn into illegal activities. On August...

Criterion Collection Announces August 2017 Additions, Including Restored ‘Sid & Nancy’ and Mike Leigh’s ‘Meantime’

16 May 2017 2:15 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Late summer is all about reflection over at The Criterion Collection, as the library is spending August offering up a handful of unsung classics and new look at some longtime favorites.

Michael Curitz’s “The Breaking Point,” a mostly overlooked Hemingway adaptation, starring John Garfield and Patricia Neal, will be available on Blu-ray for the first time, while Sacha Guitry’s “La poison” arrives on home video for the first time ever. Elsewhere, Mike Leigh’s revelatory “Meantime” is getting a 2K restoration, all the better to enjoy the early work of Tim Roth and Gary Oldman. That’s not all for Oldman fans, however, as Alex Cox’s “Sid & Nancy” hits the collection with a brand new 4K digital restoration. Finally, Walter Matthau stars in the charming comedy “Hopscotch,” also available on Blu-ray in a 2K digital restoration.

Below is the complete list of August additions, with descriptions provided by Criterion. »

Orson Welles Documentary in the Works at Netflix With ’20 Feet From Stardom’ Director

15 May 2017 11:22 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Netflix is developing a documentary on Orson Welles, directed by “20 Feet From Stardom” filmmaker Morgan Neville.

It’s the second Welles project that’s in the works at the streaming company. Monday’s announcement of the untitled documentary comes two months after the service acquired global rights to Welles’ “The Other Side of the Wind,” to finance the completion of the director’s final film. The two pics will be released simultaneously next year.

Neville won the 2014 Academy Award for best feature documentary for “20 Feet From Stardom,” which focused on backup singers. His Welles documentary is being produced by Tremolo Productions, and executive produced by Frank Marshall and Filip Jan Rymsza.

Neville’s documentary will focus on Welles’ relationship with Hollywood, particularly on “The Other Side of the Wind.”

“‘The Other Side of the Wind’ has long been a ghostly legend in cinema history, but the story behind it is equally fascinating, »

Prozac Nation: a film breaking down a mental health boundary

10 May 2017 8:56 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Chloe Catchpole May 11, 2017

Not many may have seen the Christina Ricci-headlined film adaptation of Prozac Nation. But it's a film with a real power to it.

One of the most damaging stigmas surrounding mental health is shame. The personal pressure to maintain a ‘normal’ façade is all consuming and perpetually draining. It is an onerous full time job shrouded in secrecy.

Review: Alfred Hitchcock's "Lifeboat" (1944); Kino Lorber Blu-ray Special Edition

10 May 2017 6:41 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Jeremy Carr

There is an immediate appeal in the very premise of Alfred Hitchcock’s Lifeboat (1944), a curiosity that stems from how exactly this story will play out and how the Master of Suspense is going to keep the narrative taut and technically stimulating. It was a gimmick he would repeat with Rope (1948), Dial M for Murder (1954), and Rear Window (1954), similar films where the drama is contained to a single setting. But here, the approach is amplified by having the entirety of its plot limited to the eponymous lifeboat, an extremely confined location that is at once anxiously restricting and, at the same time, placed in a vast expanse of threatening openness.

Following a German U-boat attack that sinks an allied freighter and creates the cramped, confrontational condition, a cast of nine diverse, necessarily distinctive characters are steadily assembled aboard the small vessel (and their variety is indeed necessary »

Watch Moby Transform Into the World’s Most Ruthless Hunter on ‘Talk Show the Game Show’

2 May 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Ernest Hemingway. Teddy Roosevelt. Wile E. Coyote. To the list of history’s most legendary hunters, be prepared to add…Moby.

If TV game shows are a reflection of their contestants, then “Talk Show the Game Show” might have reached its early apex. (Well, aside from Tiffany Haddish, of course.) In the exclusive clip below from Wednesday night’s new episode, host Guy Branum gives Moby his most dangerous task yet: hunting his own food. As Branum explains, the electronic musician’s very public vegan-ism presents an opportunity that “Talk Show the Game Show” seemed uniquely qualified to provide.

A Farewell to Arms (1957)

29 April 2017 10:54 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

This remake of a pre-Code classic adds amazing European locations, glorious Technicolor and entire armies on the move, yet doesn’t improve on the original. Producer David O. Selznick secured Rock Hudson to play opposite Jennifer Jones, but the chemistry is lacking. Why did the man spend twenty years trying to top Gone With the Wind?

18 Excellent Quotes From Ernest Hemingway

28 April 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Many critics and fans consider Ernest Hemingway to be one of the greatest writers in American history.   I tend to agree with this classification.  I’ve read enough of Hemingway to know not only how excellent a story teller he was, but how simply his stories were told.  Hemingway didn’t use a ton of fancy language nor did he ever try to confuse his readers.   He was as straightforward as any writer ever was and it was this “simplicity” that made his novels so fun to read. But it’s not as though the man was without intelligence.  Often times the best

Dennis O’Neil: The Perils of Captain Mighty

27 April 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Okay, let’s get this out of the way at the beginning: Yesterday I published a novel. The title is The Perils of Captain Mighty and the Redemption of Danny the Kid. I’ll add one more fact: The original title was The Perils of Captain Power and the Redemption of Danny the Kid, but there were a couple of still active copyrights for “Captain Power” and although these copyrights weren’t likely to cause any problems, they could, and so Power becomes Mighty and we proceed to the next paragraph.

Are you expecting a little chest-beating here? Not happening. Not that I have anything against some self-congratulation and some of the writers I most admire were not above it. To cite three, a trio of my favorite Nineteenth Century scribblers: Charles Dickens (who, according to one source “thrived in the spotlight”); Mark Twain (who, according to another, had a “flair self-promotion”); and Walt Whitman, »

Why so glum, chum? Movies are fun and they need watching.

In the immortal words of Shane Black via Geena Davis in The Long Kiss Goodnight, “Life is pain. Get used to it.” These days life has been really painful though, and it’s not so easy to get used to it.

Ernest Hemingway Lived Through an Obscene Amount of Stuff

18 April 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Ernest Hemingway is one of the finest writers of all-time.  We all know this.  His books are legendary and frankly I’m surprised more movie adaptations of his books haven’t been done.  My personal favorite book he’s written is The Old Man and the Sea.  I think there was a crappy made for TV movie based on the book but wouldn’t it be an amazing movie?  What if Patrick Stewart played the old man?  Just throwing that out there. In any event, one of Hemingway’s biggest themes in all of his books was tragedy.  Most times these tragedies were loosely based

Forbidden Tomes: The Killer Is You – Normalized Terror in the Works of Bret Easton Ellis

31 March 2017 2:11 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Horror is an intense, irrational emotion, and most of the fiction based around it is likewise heightened, even melodramatic. Then, there are works of horror that creep at a low frequency, finding their dread in calm and silence. Imagine Ernest Hemingway writing a horror novel, where dull conversation flows without notice into violence and terror. You don’t have to ponder too long—just pick up something by Bret Easton Ellis. His sparse, iceberg-theory prose resembles Hemingway’s, but his stories are made of nightmares.

And yet, Ellis has never written a horror novel in the literal sense. He is not Stephen King or H.P. Lovecraft, with undead villains and cosmic overlords tormenting his pages. His monsters are just as mundane as the daily activities that they act upon—sex, drug use, going to get coffee—and Ellis seems quite bored with all of it. This does not mean they’re any less frightening. »

From Paris to Netflix: The Long, Strange Journey of Orson Welles’ Last Movie, ‘The Other Side of the Wind’

20 March 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When Netflix announced March 14 it would be financing and distributing a finished cut of Orson Welles’ “The Other Side of the Wind,” the company opened a new chapter in one of the wildest, most frustrating sagas of film lore.

The legendary director shot his final film between 1970 and 1976, but a series of financial setbacks kept him from realizing his vision before his death in 1985. In the 32 years since, surviving members of the production had attempted to complete the project, but for legal reasons were unable to procure the more than 1,000 reels of negatives from a vault in Paris until the streaming giant stepped in this week.

The negatives are now safely in Los Angeles, in the hands of the team that will edit the film, according to a March 14 note from producer Filip Jan Rymsza. A short video released the next day on Yahoo details the process of shipping the reels. »

Netflix Completing Orson Welles Film ‘The Other Side of the Wind’

14 March 2017 3:12 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Netflix has acquired global rights to Orson Welles’ unfinished final film, “The Other Side of the Wind” and will finance the completion of the movie.

The film was shot by Welles beginning in 1970 from a screenplay he co-wrote with Oja Kodar, and stars John Huston, Peter Bogdanovich, Kodar, Robert Random, Lilli Palmer, Edmond O’Brien, Cameron Mitchell, Mercedes McCambridge, Susan Strasberg, Norman Foster, Paul Stewart and Dennis Hopper.

Welles shot the film-within-a-film between 1970 and 1976 and then worked on it until his death in 1985, leaving behind a 45-minute work print that he had smuggled out of France. Huston starred as a temperamental film director battling with Hollywood executives to finish a movie –much like Welles did throughout his career.

The character portrayed by Huston originated in an encounter between Ernest Hemingway and Welles in 1937 — four years before the release of “Citizen Kane” — in which a whiskey-drinking Hemingway threw a chair at Welles and they scuffled. »
