The Best Child Performances in Movie History — IndieWire Critics Survey

9 October 2017 9:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In honor of “The Florida Project,” which has just started its platform release across the country, what is the greatest child performance in a film?

Jordan Hoffman (@JHoffman), The Guardian, Vanity Fair

I can agonize over this question or I can go at this Malcolm Gladwell “Blink”-style. My answer is Tatum O’Neal in “Paper Moon.” She’s just so funny and tough, which of course makes the performance all the more heartbreaking. She won the freaking Oscar at age 10 for this and I’d really love to give a more deep cut response, but why screw around? Paper Moon is a perfect film and she is the lynchpin. »

Grey's Anatomy Recap: Out of the Frying Pan, Into 'You're Fired!'

5 October 2017 6:03 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

When the fire with which Grey’s Anatomy concluded last season was put out, Bailey thought that the worst was over. But in Thursday’s episode, she learned that she’d thought wrong. Very wrong. The arrival of Jackson’s grandpa, Harper Avery, to assess the damage done — to his foundation’s bank balance more than to the hospital — led to one of Grey Sloan’s finest getting sacked. And, given Amelia’s diagnosis in the Season 14 premiere — coupled with her determination to keep her condition a secret — that first dismissed doctor’s head wasn’t necessarily the only one on the chopping block. »

Watch Exclusive Clip From Films Distribution’s Toronto Platform Player ‘Mademoiselle Paradis’

31 August 2017 9:58 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Barbara Albert, whose films have competed at Locarno, San Sebastián and Venice, is headed to Toronto with her latest feature, “Mademoiselle Paradis.” In anticipation of the film’s Toronto Festival world premiere, Variety has been given an exclusive clip from the film.

Mademoiselle Paradis” will compete in the prestigious Platform Program at Toronto, the same competition which hosted “Jackie,” and eventual Academy Award best picture winner “Moonlight,” just last year. Albert’s period drama will then go on to play the main competition screening at San Sebastian later in September.

International sales for the film are handled by Films Distribution. Co-produced by German company Looks Film & TV and Austria’s Nikolaus Geyrhalter Filmproduktion, “Mademoiselle Paradis,” is based on the 2012 novelization of a true story by German writer and artist Alissa Walser. The screenplay adaptation was penned by Austrian actress and writer Kathrin Resetarits.

Alan Yang on Recreating ‘Friends’ for Jay-z’s ‘Moonlight’ Video, the Sneaky Camera Transitions and What’s Next

11 August 2017 1:43 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Alan Yang is riding a high after “Master of None,” the comedy he co-created with Aziz Ansari, was nominated for multiple Emmys again. But he has another reason to celebrate. Last week, audiences got to freak out over the music video he directed for Jay-z’s “Moonlight,” which features the sitcom “Friends” reimagined with an all-black cast.

Yang began directing with “Parks and Recreation,” where he first met Ansari. He also directed episodes for “The Good Place” and “Master of None” before Roc Nation contacted him to send a few pitches for “Moonlight,” his first ever music video.

“When Roc Nation came to me, they gave very loose parameters,” said Yang. “They said, ‘Maybe it could be funny, maybe it could be something comedy-based — but really come up with what you want to come up with.’ I think that’s really freeing. Of the ideas I pitched them, ‘Friends’ was my favorite idea. »

Tiff Announces Platform Lineup, Including ‘The Death of Stalin,’ ‘Euphoria,’ and ‘Brad’s Status’

3 August 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

No pressure or anything, but last year’s Toronto International Film Festival Platform section turned out a Best Picture winner.

Now in only its third year, the festival’s director-driven program aims to showcase original names in international cinema, and has steadily become one of the most exciting sections of the annual festival. Last year, it played home to such gems as “Moonlight,” “Jackie,” and “Lady MacBeth,” following its inaugural year, where it bowed titles like “High-Rise,” “Bang Gang,” and “Land of Mine.”

This year promises to only further the mission of the section, thanks to 12 titles that speak to the breadth of modern cinema, and some of the rising stars it’s currently fostering. “Platform is the place to look for the distinct stamp of today’s most interesting directors as they establish their reputations,” said Cameron Bailey, Tiff’s Artistic Director, in a statement.

This year’s lineup hails from eight countries on five continents. The films will compete for the Platform Prize, to be awarded by a jury that includes award-winning filmmakers Chen Kaige, Malgorzata Szumowska, and Wim Wenders.

Other highlights include Mike White’s Ben Stiller-starring “Brad’s Status” and Clio Barnard’s “Dark River,” along with Lisa Langseth’s “Euphoria,” starring Alicia Vikander and Eva Green as sisters on a mysterious trip.

“The films unveiled today embody our bold vision for the programme, and our ongoing commitment to showcase artistic and inventive directors that fearlessly push boundaries,” said Piers Handling, Director and CEO of Tiff. “The twelve titles exemplify bravery, dynamism and a unique voice in storytelling that we look for when curating the Platform programme.”

Powerless Season 1 Episode 8 Review – ‘Green Furious’

14 April 2017 8:39 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rachel Bellwoar reviews the eighth episode of Powerless

Is it being oversensitive to find many of the jokes in ‘Green Furious’ cruel or troubling? Is this what edgy feels like — being made to feel prudish watching a network comedy, without the slightest idea how to set the record straight? Shows, like The Office, were racy in their day but with employees offended by their workplace. Wayne Security has a staff that might find their behaviors are mostly acceptable.

That ‘Green Furious’ is an episode about workplace sexism, and gender bias in the media, doesn’t help. Demonstrations of offensive behavior are necessary to give characters a chance to respond but the examples are caricature, internet harps. Van mansplaining. Teddy calling women stupid for not thinking highly of his outfit. Before he commandeered Ron’s focus group to talk about his fashion sense (Ron actually works and acts like a professional »

‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ Debuts at No. 1 on Disc Charts

12 April 2017 4:32 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” the second film Disney has released in the 40-year-old sci-fi franchise, easily took the top spot on the national home video sales charts for the week ended April 9.

The film, with a domestic gross of nearly $532 million, cut short the stay at No. 1 of Warner’s “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” the fantasy spinoff of the “Harry Potter” series that had debuted in the top spot the prior week.

“Fantastic Beasts” slipped to No. 2 on both the Npd VideoScan overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc sales, and Npd’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart. Nielsen data shows “Beasts” sold just 17% as many copies its second week in stores as the new “Star Wars” film, the second-highest earner in the franchise.

“Moana,” the musical fantasy from Walt Disney Pictures, remained at No. 3 for the third consecutive week.

16mm Film’s Brilliance is Praised in Entertaining New Video Essay — Watch

11 April 2017 7:28 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

What exactly is it about 16mm that makes cinephiles swoon? Is it the vintage charm, the soft colors, the way the light seems to drip into every inch of the frame? Over at The Royal Ocean Film Society, filmmaker and self-proclaimed hipster Andrew Saladino waxes poetic about the glories of 16mm. “The grain is much more pronounced, the color is nice and dense, and the overall product has a genuine texture to it,” he says.

Quentin Tarantino’s 7 Best Scenes As a Director

27 March 2017 8:50 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Quentin Tarantino’s films are famous for their non-linear narratives, for how they jump around in time like a skipping DVD, sometimes even willing their ways into alternate histories. And yet, despite all of their twisty plotting, his movies are increasingly defined by — and remembered for — self-contained scenes that stretch to the breaking point and seem to become iconic even as you’re first watching them. From the ingeniously knotted “Pulp Fiction” to the bifurcated “Death Proof”; from the sprawling “Kill Bill” (which is divided into 10 discrete chapters), to the snowbound “The Hateful Eight” (which limits itself to two locations and finds Tarantino challenging himself to hold a single note of suspense for hours at a time), these epic stories are shaped around chatty, taut, and indelible sequences that simmer with the potential for sudden acts of violence.

‘Wilson’ Flops for Fox Searchlight as ‘T2 Trainspotting’ Holds Strong

26 March 2017 10:11 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This weekend, strong holdover “T2 Trainspotting” outperformed Fox Searchlight disappointment “Wilson” at the specialty box office. Jazz documentary “I Called Him Morgan” is the bright spot among new specialty entries — at just one theater. This year, there are so many well-reviewed wide releases enjoying huge success with smart adults that the indies need a strong critical response to compete for moviegoers.
