Opening Night – World Premiere

Gone Girl

David Fincher, USA, 2014, Dcp, 150m

David Fincher’s film version of Gillian Flynn’s phenomenally successful best seller (adapted by the author) is one wild cinematic ride, a perfectly cast and intensely compressed portrait of a recession-era marriage contained within a devastating depiction of celebrity/media culture, shifting gears as smoothly as a Maserati 250F. Ben Affleck is Nick Dunne, whose wife Amy (Rosamund Pike) goes missing on the day of their fifth anniversary. Neil Patrick Harris is Amy’s old boyfriend Desi, Carrie Coon (who played Honey in Tracy Letts’s acclaimed production of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) is Nick’s sister Margo, Kim Dickens (TremeFriday Night Lights) is Detective Rhonda Boney, and Tyler Perry is Nick’s superstar lawyer Tanner Bolt. At once a grand panoramic vision of middle America, a uniquely disturbing exploration of the fault lines in a marriage, »

13 August 2014 9:07 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Toronto International Film Festival is fast approaching, so a lot of our attention has been on that, but soon after Toronto wraps, the 2014 New York Film Festival begins, so it’s time to start considering that as well, especially because The Film Society of Lincoln Center just announced the main slate lineup.

2014 Nyff: Chazelle, Broomfield, Bonello, Ferrara, Sang-soo, Hansen-Løve Make Cut

13 August 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

While Sundance (Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash and Alex Ross Perry’s Listen Up Philip) and Berlin (Dominik Graf’s Beloved Sisters, Yann Demange’s ’71, Alain ResnaisLife of Riley) titles are indeed present, the 52nd edition (much like previous years) is a Cannes heavy and slightly Venice lopsided affair/showcase for Manhattanites.

Also the lieu for subtitle friendly distrib companies to measure their summer purchases (IFC, Spc, Cinema Guild, Cohen Media), leading the pack in non Croisette or Lido items, we’re most curious about Pedro Costa’s Horse Money, Matías Piñeiro’s The Princess of France and Eugène Green’s La Sapienza and are looking forward to multi-volume Eden from Mia Hansen-Løve and Nick Broomfield’s (Telluride-tiff) Tales of the Grim Sleeper (see pic above) Added to Fincher’s Gone Girl, Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice and Iñárritu’s Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance here are »

2014 New York Film Festival Announces an Impressive (If Familiar) Main Lineup

13 August 2014 8:48 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

We already knew David Fincher's Gone Girl would be opening the 2014 New York Film Festival and that Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Birdman will be closing it, but today we get a full look at the main line-up for this year's fest and it features a lot of familiar titles, though it appears Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice is still one their choosing to keep quiet even though it has all but been confirmed. Most of the recognizable titles playing the fest have already been seen at Cannes and will again be featured in Toronto including Clouds of Sils Maria, Foxcatcher, Goodbye to Language, Maps to the Stars, Mr. Turner, Two Days, One Night and Whiplash. Abel Ferrara's Pasolini and Mia Hansen-Love's Eden are two other high profile and anticipated films that will be playing Toronto and you can add Mathieu Amalric's The Blue Room, Hong Sang-soo's Hill of Freedom, »

Favorites Of The Moon | Blu-Ray Review

12 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

After a new print screened at the 2014 City of Lights City of Angels Festival earlier this spring, Cohen Media Group has released a digitally remastered Blu-ray of Otar Iosseliani’s 1984 classic yet elusive title, Favorites of the Moon. Awarded the Special Jury Prize at the 41st Venice International Film Festival, the film, along with most of the Georgian filmmaker’s titles, have long been unavailable to U.S. audiences, a shame considering his prolific stature and important body of work that subversively undermines frameworks within the dominant culture he’s navigating as an exiled dissident.

Taking its title from Shakespeare’s Henry IV describing thieves, “Diana’s foresters, gentlemen of the shade, favorites of the moon,” Iosseliani expounds on the same motif, casting all of humanity in the shade of the moon, a symbol of disorder, chaos and unrest. In essence, the plot is a roundelay, utilizing a set of »

DVD Review: 'Venus in Fur'

29 July 2014 5:42 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆For Roman Polanski's latest, the now octogenarian director has adapted David Ives play Venus in Fur, which is itself based on the 1870 novel of the same name by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch. Taking place entirely in a theatre setting, the chamber piece sees a playwright, Thomas Novachek (Mathieu Amalric), who is directing his own adaptation of Venus in Fur, interrupted at the end of a long day of auditioning the lead role by Vanda Jourdain (Emmanuelle Seigner), an actor late for the reading who insists on being seen, despite Thomas' obvious disapproval of her appropriateness for the role. We then have two actors, Amalric and Seigner, playing the part of an actor and a director, themselves performing roles.

Venus In Fur – The Review

17 July 2014 3:38 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Venus In Fur is from American playwright David Ives’ Tony Award-winning play, a two-character S&M tale set in New York. Now comes the film version, which is set in Paris and is in French. C’est quoi ce bordel? It’s the latest movie directed by 80-year old perv Roman Polanksi who has cast his pretty 46-year old French wife Emmanuelle Seigner in the lead. Venus In Fur is a kinky backstage tango that never quite sizzles, but it’s still an entertaining and often funny riff on the issues of sex and power. I just wish it had been filmed in English.

Venus In Fur opens with stage writer-director Thomas (Mathieu Amalric) alone in a Paris theater after a long day of auditioning actresses for his new play, an adaptation of an 18th century erotic tale that explores the explosive relationship between a domineering mistress and her submissive male subject/slave. »

‘Venus in Fur’ is a luxurious treat

22 June 2014 7:45 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Venus in Fur

Written for the screen and directed by Roman Polanski

France, 2013

What is art if not an artist’s fiction translated into reality?  A fiction wrought from fear, self-loathing and prejudice that escapes the confines of a sonnet and burrows its way into the collective consciousness.  Now it is reality.  Now it has power.  Now it’s an idea, and ideas are poisonous.  Rather than dispelling the poisonous reality, Polanski’s Venus in Fur toys with the delicate fiction lying beneath.  It’s a study in role-playing, where the players and creators are equally baffled by the game.  More importantly, this is the intensely personal work of an artist who understands that only by blurring the lines between fiction and reality can he approach what Herzog calls, “the ecstatic truth.”

To call Venus in Fur a ‘play-within-a-play’ is a misnomer.  Indeed, it involves the inner workings of a stage play, »

Ten Best: Movies of the Year… So Far!

22 June 2014 1:07 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

It is that time again as 2014 is already half over. Wow, time flies when you are watching movies. The year being half over brings my annual, “Top 10 Movies of the Year…So Far” list, and without question this is my strongest list by a long shot. One big reason is the increase of great titles that have been released On Demand.  Half of my list in fact is made up of films I saw On Demand. Now I am all for supporting your local Art House Theater as much as possible, but certain films don’t make it outside of La and New York so On Demand is a great tool to experience some great Independent movies. I feel like geek culture is far too obsessed with franchises that stick to the same format over and over again. I enjoy franchise movies as well, as you will see on this list, »
