Bart & Fleming: On ‘Birdman,’ Sony PR Tsuris, Mike Nichols And Bill Cosby

23 November 2014 12:26 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Peter Bart and Mike Fleming Jr. worked together for two decades at Daily Variety. In this occasional column, two old friends get together and grind their axes, mostly on the movie business. 

Bart: Critics don’t like to admit it, but the conditions under which you see a film strongly influence your opinion. Birdman is a good example: If you see a film like this with a pack of cinephiles like at Telluride, everyone gets every inside joke, and you instinctively go along with the crowd. I made it a point to see Birdman with a paid civilian audience and it was like screening it in a mausoleum. No laughs, just occasional grunts and lots of walkouts. Some reviews predicted Birdman “will captivate arthouse and multiplex crowds alike and send awards pundits into orbit” (the Variety review). Well that ain’t happening with the audiences; we’ll see about the awards. »

An Intimate Conversation With Mike Nichols

20 November 2014 2:52 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Two years ago, on the eve of his eagerly awaited Broadway revival of Death of a Salesman, I sat down with Mike Nichols to look back on his remarkable career. During those two-plus hours together at the Mark Hotel in Manhattan, the legendary director, then 80, reminisced about a life of highs and lows that began as a bright-eyed young boy who fled Nazi Germany for America. "I remember everything about getting on the boat in Germany in 1939," Nichols said. "I was 7, my brother was 3, and my father was already in New York setting up his practice as a doctor. German Jews couldn't leave the country, »

Remembering Mike Nichols, an ever-dexterous director

20 November 2014 8:25 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Mike Nichols, a man known for his crackling wit as well as an Oscar-winning director who showed enormous versatility on stage and screen, died on Wednesday, Nov. 19 at age 83. Nichols was born Mikhail Igor Peschkowsky in Berlin, Germany. His family fled to the United States piecemeal—his father first, followed by Nichols and his brother, then finally their mother. He spent his adolescence in New York and fell into theater while attending the University of Chicago, where he first met Elaine May after she criticized his acting in a play. Together they formed the comedy duo Nichols and May, appearing »

Read Marilyn Monroe's Very Racy Love Letter from Arthur Miller

20 November 2014 7:15 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Sexting wouldn't be invented for another half-century. But that didn't stop Arthur Miller from expressing some rather explicit long-distance passion for Marilyn Monroe. In the months before the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of Death of a Salesman wed the screen siren, then the most famous star in the world, he was head over heels in love with her - and then some. In a racy, never-before-seen letter he mailed to her on April 30, 1956, he writes that when they are back together again and she awakens next to him, "I will kiss you and hold you close to me and sensational things will then happen. »

Witchcraft Wednesdays: Tracing the Evolution of Witchcraft in Film

22 October 2014 4:29 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It may be more true in horror than in any other genre that certain subgenres ebb and flow in popularity over time. Vampires were hot in the mid-’90s when you had Interview with the Vampire, From Dusk Till Dawn, Blade and the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Then, vampires sat out of popular discourse for the next ten years or so, until the double whammy of Twilight and True Blood hitting in 2008, causing a tidal wave of vampiric fiction from the arty (Only Lovers Left Alive, Byzantium) to the schlocky (Dracula Untold, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter) that hasn’t slowed down since.

Witches are now in the middle of an uncertain period, neither in ebb or flow. When Häxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages was released in 1922, witchcraft and the occult were still deeply feared in modern society. In the decades that followed, interest waned and they became more »

London Film Review: ‘The Falling’

17 October 2014 6:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A peculiarly English current of terror — agitated, eccentric and politely unspoken — courses through “The Falling,” an imperfect but alluring study of psychological contagion that marks an auspicious advance in the field of narrative filmmaking for acclaimed docmaker Carol Morley. Observing the fallout of a hysterical fainting epidemic that mysteriously strikes a well-to-do girls’ school in late-1960s England, Morley marries a quasi-Victorian premise with a modernist technique that feels drawn from her film’s own milieu: There are shades here of Joseph Losey and Ken Russell, albeit with a staunch feminist perspective. The storytelling may waver in conviction after a woozily riveting setup, but not enough to impede healthy domestic arthouse prospects; further festival exposure should yield select international distribution for this eye-catching conversation piece.

Premiering in the official competition of the London fest, “The Falling” isn’t Morley’s first stab at a fictional feature, though it feels more »
