It’s Only the End of the World review – spittle-flecked drama

20 hours ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

An adaptation of a play about a gay man’s return to the bosom of his family is not easy to watch – or listen to

The latest picture from the prolific Canadian wunderkind Xavier Dolan is certainly not the easiest watch. An adaptation of a play by Jean-Luc Lagarce that tells of the return of a sensitive, successful gay son to his tempestuous family home, this is stridently confrontational in its approach. Dolan favours so many extreme, spittle-flecked closeups of shouting family members that it leaves you gasping for breath and longing for a wide shot.

Gaspard Ulliel plays prodigal son Louis, Nathalie Baye is screechy and lurid as his mother and Marion Cotillard delivers sensitive work as the browbeaten sister-in-law he has never met. But it’s Vincent Cassel’s character who is the most problematic – older brother Antoine is furious but it’s a hollow, noisy anger that »

Great Job, Internet!: Should the Oscars honor more foreign-language acting performances?

24 February 2017 11:23 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Casual moviegoers who tune into this Sunday’s Oscar broadcast might be particularly surprised by one name in the Best Actress category: Isabelle Huppert. The Parisian-born French star was nominated for her turn in the French psychological thriller comedy Elle. And she joins the ranks of the less than four percent of international actors nominated for an Oscar for work in a foreign-language film. Film journalist Leigh Singer digs into that short history of foreign-language acting at the Oscars in a new video for Fandor.

Singer’s video points out that while international actors have a good chance of winning for performances in American-made English-language films (think Christoph Waltz in Django Unchained or Javier Bardem in No Country For Old Men), earning a nod for a foreign-language performance is much harder. In fact Sophia Loren, Marion Cotillard, and Roberto Benigni remain the only three actors to win Oscars for foreign-language »

Movie Review – It’s Only the End of the World (2016)

23 February 2017 4:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s Only the End of the World, 2016.

Directed by Xavier Dolan.

Starring Gaspard Ulliel, Nathalie Baye, Vincent Cassel, Marion Cotillard and Lea Seydoux.

Synopsis:

After 12 years away from his family, a terminally ill writer returns home to break the news.  But, as he struggles to re-connect with them, old wounds and frustrations rise to the surface, making it even harder for him to tell them the real reason for his visit.

Meet the family.  Fractured, dysfunctional and belonging to writer Louis (Gaspard Ulliel) who hasn’t seen them for 12 years.  During that time, older brother Antoine (Vincent Cassel) has married Catherine (Marion Cotillard) and had two  children.  Sister Suzanne (Lea Seydoux) is increasingly stoned and hippy-like, while mother (Nathalie Baye) has become increasingly garish in her choice of clothes and make-up.  Louis might have a tenuous attachment to all of them – he keeps suggesting a visit to the previous »

Marion Cotillard Calls Jennifer Lawrence a 'Prodigy': 'I Think She Can Do Anything'

22 February 2017 4:22 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Marion Cotillard thinks very highly of Jennifer Lawrence!

In a new interview with W Magazine, the Allied star confessed her girl crush on the Passengers actress, sharing, "Jennifer Lawrence is a prodigy."

Interestingly enough, this is not even the first time Cotillard has spoken about Lawrence in those terms. In 2013, the actress told The Metro, "I'm totally in love with Jennifer Lawrence. She's a prodigy. She's 22, it's insane."

"I think she can do anything. I think she's amazing. But there are so many actresses that I love," she said. "I think Elle Fanning is absolutely amazing. Cate Blanchett, of course. Toni Collette is one of my favorite. I have a passion for actresses. The list is going to be very, very long."

Cinema’s Greatest Manhunt Movies

22 February 2017 4:53 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Manhunt movies have taken a shift over the years. Gone are the days of prohibition gangster heroism, liberating the common folk from the great depression with free flowing liquor. Times have changed and as Patriots Day shows us, heroes come in many forms and are often right under our noses.

Patriots Day exposes the stories of the everyday heroes involved in the manhunt for the Tsarnaev brothers following the devastating Boston Marathon attack in 2013. To celebrate the release of Peter Berg’s latest ‘based on true events’ film we’ve pulled together a list of the best manhunt movies currently at large.

Zero Dark Thirty

The exhausting hunt for Osama bin Laden was something the world was certainly aware of, but the cloak and dagger operation kept things under wraps until the evening of 1st May 2011 when in a seemingly sudden move, at least to the general population, bin Laden »

It’s Only the End of the World Review

21 February 2017 6:51 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

 

The prolific, impressively young Xavier Dolan’s preceding endeavour was his finest yet, the indelible, irresistible drama Mommy, a film that contained a lot of shrieking, and yet amidst the emotional, piercing shouting matches, you always felt you could hear every single word. His latest, the curiously self-pitying It’s Only the End of the World, also features screaming – and lots of it – and yet in this instance you feel as though you aren’t actually catching a word, it’s just one big muffled mess.

In what seems to be a self-referential piece, Dolan casts Gaspard Ulliel as Louis, a terminally ill playwright returning back home for the first time in over a decade, with the intention of telling his family that he’s dying. Upon his arrival he’s met with the principle shrieker, his eccentric mother (Nathalie Baye), and his cynical sister Suzanne (Léa Seydoux »

A Low-Key Berlinale Yields Some Foreign Oscar Contenders to Watch

19 February 2017 3:03 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Situated as it is in the dank tail-end of a cold German winter, the Berlinale never attracts as much attention from awards-watchers as its fellow European majors Cannes and Venice: The former, after all, takes place in sunny spring climes, when everyone has recovered sufficiently from the last awards season to contemplate the next one, while the latter glamorously kicks off the gilded fall festivals, handing the baton to Telluride and Toronto. Berlin’s programming, meanwhile, is arguably the most proudly esoteric of the three, with an emphasis on newer filmmakers and underexposed filmmaking regions and demographics.

None of that, needless to say, is exactly music to Oscar pundits’ ears, but for the keen-eyed observer, Berlin annually turns up a few contenders that stay the course all the way to the following February. It’s rare for a Berlinale premiere to make quite as big a splash as Wes Anderson »

‘How to Get Away With Murder’ Actress Karla Souza on Success in Mexico, Character’s Changes

16 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Over the past five years, Karla Souza has appeared in some of Mexico’s top-grossing films, including “We Are the Nobles” and “Instructions Not Included.” Since 2014, she’s been a regular on the ABC TV drama “How to Get Away With Murder.” She has dabbled in producing as well, with the 2016 comedy “¿Qué Culpa Tiene el Niño?” and “Everybody Loves Somebody,”  a film that opens Feb. 17. Souza spoke with Variety about wearing multiple creative hats, avoiding stereotyping, and how she’s coping with the loss of her baby daddy on “Murder.”

You’ve had successes in both your native Mexico and the U.S. How do you pick your projects? 

My entire career I’ve depended so much on my team and a group of people that have led me to great scripts, knowing [what will help] me grow as an actor. I’m very grateful for having had success in both countries, because »

'Rock'n Roll': Film Review

16 February 2017 3:53 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Like an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm jacked up on steroids, French actor-director Guillaume Canet’s latest movie, Rock’n Roll, takes the self-deprecating — or is that self-aggrandizing? — celebrity satire genre to new extremes.

Featuring Canet as himself and real-life partner Marion Cotillard as herself, along with a cast of cameoing local talents, this slyly conceived midlife crisis comedy follows the 42-year-old star on a long and destructive ego trip that goes from funny to downright bananas over the course of two somewhat overstretched hours. There’s plenty to chew on for French film fans, who are sure to appreciate all »

The Oscar Race for Best Actress is Down To Emma Stone vs. Isabelle Huppert

3 February 2017 10:39 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

In one of the most competitive races for a Best Actress nomination in years, two stars of Best Picture contenders didn’t make it — five-time nominee Amy Adams (“Arrival”) and Taraji P. Henson (“Hidden Figures”) — along with veteran Annette Bening (“20th Century Women”), who will have to wait for her fifth nomination.

See more 2017 Oscar Predictions

So which of the top five final contenders will win the Oscar? I rank them in order of likelihood:

Emma Stone, the “Birdman” nominee and Oscar frontrunner, came out of Venice (winning Best Actress), Telluride, and Toronto with raves for her role as an enchanting singer-dancer-actress in Damien Chazelle’s Tiff audience-winner “La La Land.” She went on to land Critics Choice, SAG, and BAFTA nominations, and took home Golden Globe and SAG Awards. The Oscar is hers to lose.

Groundhog Day and 10 more films about time, dreams, and perceptionGroundhog Day and 10 more films about time, dreams, and perceptionAdriana Floridia2/2/2017 10:30:00 Am

Today is Groundhog Day, where the myth lives on that a groundhog who sees his shadow will doom us to a longer winter than we deserve. Then there is Harold RamisGroundhog Day, the film in which Bill Murray’s weatherman, Phil Connors mysteriously finds himself living the same day over and over again. On a traditional level the movie is a comedy, but it actually touches upon some really dark philosophical themes. It’s estimated by the filmmakers that Phil lives the same day for 10 years.  

In honour of Groundhog Day, we’re taking a look back at ten other films that deal with time, memory, dreams, and repeated experiences. While there may be no film that tackles the topic as precisely as Groundhog Day, these »

The first few days of Donald Trump’s presidency have been filled with a slew of sweeping policy changes that have garnered plenty of criticism — but the recent changes to America’s immigration policy have topped headlines.

There are plenty of them, but here is just a sampling of 16 that you should definitely watch.
