Little Fauss and Big Halsy

29 October 2016 2:43 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Redford's back and Pollard's got him! Or is it Lauren Hutton? Sidney J. Furie fully earns his shaky reputation with this motorcycle buddy picture. Most of the energy seems to have gone into the deal, not the movie. Great cinematography, but it's for fans that want to look at a shirtless Sundance Kid. I know you're out there. Little Fauss and Big Halsy Blu-ray Olive Films 1970 / Color / 2:35 widescreen / 99 min. / Street Date October 18, 2016 / available through the Olive Films website / 29.98 Starring Robert Redford, Michael J. Pollard, Lauren Hutton, Noah Beery Jr., Lucille Benson, Ray Ballard, Linda Gaye Scott, Erin O'Reilly. Cinematography Ralph Woolsey Film Editor Argyle Nelson Jr. Art Direction Lawrence G. Paull Songs Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Carl Perkins Written by Charles Eastman Produced by Albert S. Ruddy Directed by Sidney J. Furie

Movie Review – De Palma (2016)

22 September 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

De Palma, 2016

Directed by Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow.

Synopsis:

A documentary exploring the life, work and influences behind the films of Brian De Palma

Brian De Palma may be popular among cineliterate enthusiasts but he’s never had the same popularity elsewhere. When you list his movies, it’s easy to imagine audiences being taken aback by the sheer quantity of classics he has under his belt. Carrie, Scarface and Mission Impossible are difficult to group together, spanning vividly different genres, and yet they fall under the impressive banner of Brian De Palma. De Palma, jointly directed by Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow, is primarily an interview, but it fills the screen with footage from each of his movies (and the classics that inspired them) and weaves this chronological canon together effortlessly.

Discussing each and every film in his eclectic filmography, De Palma is affably honest. He’s outspoken »

Nine movies that popped at autumn festivals

21 September 2016 3:36 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Screen’s chief film critic Fionnuala Halligan notes the films that stood out from the pack at this year’s Venice, Telluride and Toronto film festivals.1. La-La Land

La La Land

It opened the Venice Film Festival, charged into Telluride and continued to draw queues throughout its Toronto Film Festival run where it won the coveted Audience Award. Saturation coverage for Lionsgate’s uber-romantic Damien Chazelle-directed musical was assisted by Emma Stone’s Best Actress win at Venice. Now it heads to the Zurich and London film festivals before a limited release in the Us on December 2, opening wide on the 16th. Happy Christmas for all concerned: by the end of the fall festival guzzle, La La Land seems to be the one to beat for Best Picture.

2. Nocturnal Animals

Tom Ford won Best Director at Venice for his adaptation of Austin Wright’s narratively snakey novel Tony And Susan, and deservedly »

A Brutally Honest Festival Breakdown: Winners, Losers, and Oscar Frontrunners

20 September 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Three weeks of film festivals and hundreds of movies later, one stands as the clear winner. Damien Chazelle’s “La La Land” won a prize for Emma Stone in Venice, wowed Telluride, and walked away with the Audience Award in Toronto —and by the end of that festival, people paid “Hamilton”-premiums for tickets to the last screening,

Now, that’s word of mouth.

Of course, “La La Land” isn’t alone in its accolades. Here’s how the players came out at the end of the three festivals.

Winners

A24

Established studio players like Sony Pictures Classics aim their sights at the loyal theatergoers who tend to be older; getting younger cinephiles to come to a theater is harder than ever. Nevertheless, A24 seems to have figured out a way. They acquire movies like excoriated Cannes entry “The Sea of Trees” to go out via their deal with DirectTV and iTunes, »

Sony Classics Brings Us Eleanor Coppola's "Paris..."

20 September 2016 6:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

One of the films we've been hearing positive word of mouth out of the glut of Tiff is Eleanor Coppola's Paris Can Wait. Eleanor famously documented her husband Francis Ford Coppola's literal hell shooting Apocalypse Now with Hearts of Darkness, and followed with more behind the scenes documentaries after. Paris is her first narrative film and Sony Pictures Classics just picked it up for distribution. At 80 years old, this first feature from the director will be something to celebrate!

If not Tiff Oscar bait, the film sounds like a lighthearted, mouth watering trip across France: Diane Lane stars as a dispassionately married woman who takes a French road trip with a business associate of her husband to reinvigorate her life. Alec Baldwin and Arnaud Viard are her costars, but we hear the cuisine brings the real romance. Food porn and Diane Lane in Europe sounds like exactly the »

[Tiff Review] Paris Can Wait

19 September 2016 5:46 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With her last feature directorial credit being contributions to 1991’s Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker’s Apocalypse, Eleanor Coppola is perhaps better known as Francis Ford Coppola’s wife than a filmmaker. Yet, she triumphantly returns this year with one of the sexiest and most joyful road movies in some time with Paris Can Wait.

This spiked bonbon of a movie has Diane Lane playing Anne, a woman that is slowly starting to get frustrated with the constant traveling of her Hollywood producer husband (Alec Baldwin). She is left alone once again during the Cannes Film Festival and needs to get to Paris by nighttime. Life at home for Anne is boring and routine, with her daughter leaving to pursue her studies abroad and her husband needing to fly to Egypt to deal with a problematic high-budget production. Anne might be hitting her mid-fifties, but there’s still an independent, »

‘Lady Macbeth’ Goes to Roadside Attractions in Big Tiff 2016 Buy

15 September 2016 10:55 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Toronto Film Festival’s latest big buy is Roadside Attractions’ acquisition of U.S. and Canadian rights to critics’ fave “Lady Macbeth,” starring breakout star Florence Pugh (“The Falling”) in a 19th-century take on the Shakespeare character.

Distributors huddled after the film’s world premiere screening last week. Produced by Fodhla Cronin O’Reilly, “Lady Macbeth” is a Sixty Six Pictures and iFeatures production, a Creative England, BBC Films and BFI presentation in association with Oldgarth Media. The cast also includes Cosmo Jarvis, Paul Hilton, Naomi Ackie, and Christopher Fairbank.

Toronto: Eleanor Coppola Opens New Doors in Her Film Career

13 September 2016 11:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Not many people write, direct and produce their first narrative feature at age 80, but Eleanor Coppola isn’t your typical filmmaker.  Best known for chronicling husband Francis Ford Coppola’s troubled production of “Apocalypse Now” in the 1991 doc “Hearts of Darkness,” she talks to Variety about her new autobiographical road movie “Paris Can Wait” and her own remarkable journey.

Your husband Francis, daughter Sofia and son Roman have each written and directed several narrative films. What took you so long?

[Laughs] Well, by nature I’m a documentarian, a consummate observer, looking for nuggets of interesting experiences to photograph. That’s what I’ve done in seven behind-the-scenes [docs] for Francis and my children. But I had this funny experience and told a friend, “That’d be a movie I’d want to see.” I never thought of writing an original script, but I’d published a book [the 2008 memoir “Notes On a Life”] so I decided, why not give it a try? »

'Paris Can Wait': Film Review | Tiff 2016

12 September 2016 5:27 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Quite possibly, at 80, the oldest American director to ever make a debut dramatic feature, Eleanor Coppola serves up a sweet little divertissement with Paris Can Wait, a slight but charming travelogue/food-a-thon about two middle-aged acquaintances on a two-day road trip from Cannes to Paris. Making several scenic and mouth-watering stops along the way, the light-hearted tale is underscored by the possibility of an adulterous romance between Diane Lane’s married woman and Arnaud Viard’s ever-insinuating roué, but their main preoccupations are beautiful towns, fine local wines and fabulous meals. Oldsters will enjoy watching

Eleanor Coppola Opens Up About Directing a Film at Age 80 and Her Son's Tragic Death

8 September 2016 6:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

It all began with a cold. In 2009, Eleanor Coppola was accompanying her husband, Francis Ford Coppola, to the Cannes Film Festival when she fell ill and decided to stay behind and rest as he traveled on to Budapest. A French associate of Francis' offered to drive her to the Paris airport. But what should have been a seven-hour trip turned into a three-day adventure filled with wine, truffles and sweeping vistas. It jolted the then-73-year-old out of her everyday ennui. For while Coppola was an accomplished visual artist and Emmy-winning director in her

Toronto Film Festival 2016: What Films Will Contend For Oscar Gold After Tiff Premieres

26 July 2016 9:05 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Toronto Film Festival, which runs September 8-18, announced its lineup today with a ton of potential Oscar contenders — but it’s not the only showcase that some of them will have in the fall. Tiff has been sensitive of late about Labor Day weekend rival Telluride’s annual panoply of unannounced Oscar contenders. However, the two film events work in concert, as the earlier well-curated festival — attended by a small coterie of influencers — builds buzz for the later, sprawling Tiff, with its larger mass of junket media, including the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which votes on the Golden Globes.
