Academy Award Film Series: Schrader's Afflicted 1998 Anti-Hero Has Elements in Common with Titular Taxi Driver Character

25 August 2015 3:49 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Affliction' movie: Nick Nolte as the troubled police officer Wade Whitehouse. 'Affliction' movie: Great-looking psychological drama fails to coalesce Set in a snowy New Hampshire town, Affliction could have been an excellent depiction of a dysfunctional family's cycle of violence and how that is accentuated by rapid, destabilizing socioeconomic changes. Unfortunately, writer-director Paul Schrader's 1998 film doesn't quite reach such heights.* Based on a novel by Russell Banks (who also penned the equally snowy The Sweet Hereafter), Schrader's Affliction relies on a realistic wintry atmosphere (courtesy of cinematographer Paul Sarossy) to convey the deadness inside the story's protagonist, the middle-aged small-town sheriff Wade Whitehouse (Nick Nolte). The angst-ridden Wade is intent on not ending up like his abusive, alcoholic father, Glen (James Coburn), while inexorably sliding down that very path. Making matters more complicated, Wade must come to terms with the fact that his ex-wife, Lillian (Mary Beth Hurt), will never return to him, »

Mitchum Stars in TCM Movie Premiere Set Among Japanese Gangsters Directed by Future Oscar Winner

12 August 2015 10:44 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Robert Mitchum ca. late 1940s. Robert Mitchum movies 'The Yakuza,' 'Ryan's Daughter' on TCM Today, Aug. 12, '15, Turner Classic Movies' “Summer Under the Stars” series is highlighting the career of Robert Mitchum. Two of the films being shown this evening are The Yakuza and Ryan's Daughter. The former is one of the disappointingly few TCM premieres this month. (See TCM's Robert Mitchum movie schedule further below.) Despite his film noir background, Robert Mitchum was a somewhat unusual choice to star in The Yakuza (1975), a crime thriller set in the Japanese underworld. Ryan's Daughter or no, Mitchum hadn't been a box office draw in quite some time; in the mid-'70s, one would have expected a Warner Bros. release directed by Sydney Pollack – who had recently handled the likes of Jane Fonda, Barbra Streisand, and Robert Redford – to star someone like Jack Nicholson or Al Pacino or Dustin Hoffman. »

'Logan's Run' Remake to Feature a Female Lead?

7 April 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's been awhile since we've heard anything about the Logan's Run remake, which at one point had Nicolas Winding Refn attached to direct and Ryan Gosling set to star as Logan. The last report on this gestating sic-fi adventure was back in June 2013, when screenwriter Ken Levine (Bioshock) signed on to pen the script. This happened just a few months after Ryan Gosling dropped out of the project in October 2012. Today we have a new report from The Tracking Board, which claims that Warner Bros. is now developing the remake for a female lead.

The original Logan's Run hit theaters in 1976, set in a futuristic world where, due to a lack of resources on the planet, everyone must die once they reach the age of 30. Michael York stars as Logan, a hunter known as one of the Sandmen, who must track down those who run from their fate. The tables »
