"I Am Chris Farley" Will Move Fans But Avoids Exploring the Comedian's Demons

1 September 2015 8:05 AM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

I’ve only got a few heroes, and over 90 percent of them are dead from suicides or drug overdoses: Ian Curtis. John Belushi. Spalding Gray. and Chris Farley. I’ve always been a sucker for Farley. He seemed to have a darkness just under the surface, perhaps more than Belushi. I totally get what it’s like to be the “funny fat guy.” I’ve been that my entire life. I know what it’s like to have those insecurities. Those worries. To always want to impress or make others laugh or be happy. I get that. I get all of that.

Maybe that’s why while watching I Am Chris Farley, I got kinda’ emotional. At a handful of points during this incredible documentary (produced by Spike, the “dude’s channel” of record), there were moments of pure emotion watching guys like David Spade, Adam Sandler and countless others »

Berlin Film Review: Anton Corbijn’s ‘Life’

9 February 2015 12:45 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Makeup and mimicry can only take an actor so far when tasked with playing one of the most enduring stars in the cinematic firmament: More crucial is that he have a certain intangible star quality of his own. Such is the success of Dane DeHaan’s magnetic take on James Dean in “Life,” Anton Corbijn’s engaging, elegiac portrait of a legend in the making. More than a standard celebrity bio, however, the pic is a loving valentine from photographer-turned-helmer Corbijn to his name-making profession, with Robert Pattinson in a sly turn as Dennis Stock, the shutterbug who landed Dean a now-classic Life magazine spread. It’s the peculiarly moving, even subtly queer friendship between the two men that distinguishes “Life” from standard inside-Hollywood fare, while gorgeous production values and ace star turns make it a thoroughly marketable arthouse prospect. 

If any current filmmaker is qualified to reflect on the »

DVD Review – A Most Wanted Man (2014)

19 January 2015 7:35 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A Most Wanted Man, 2014.

Directed by Anton Corbijn.

Starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Willem Dafoe, Daniel Brühl, Robin Wright, Grigoriy Dobrygin, Derya Alabora and Nina Hoss.

Synopsis:

A Chechen Muslim illegally immigrates to Hamburg, where he gets caught in the international war on terror.

With this release Corbijn has once again proven himself to be a director with no small amount of style. Ever since his feature debut with 2007’s powerful and understated Ian Curtis biopic Control, the Dutch photographer and music video director has brought a tremendous amount of fluidity and depth of style to his body of work. This, a measured and considered adaptation of John Le Carre’s  2008 stirring liberal response to the ongoing – and currently escalating – war on terror  is a fascinating and artful take on the spy movie genre.

Similarities can and have been drawn between this terrifically moving piece and another recent Le »
