15 Great Ways Filmmakers Found Their Independence In The Last 20 Years

Subverting the Unexpected

At the end of the 20th century, Bobcat Goldthwait’s legacy read like a cheap joke: He was a screaming comedian from the eighties best known as Zed in the “Police Academy” franchise who once tried at his hand at directing a movie (“Shakes the Clown”). Those achievements barely skimmed the surface of Goldthwait’s ability, as the ensuing years made clear, when Goldthwait completely transformed his career into one of the most provocative American filmmakers working today. With the microbudget “Sleeping Dogs Lie” (aka “Stay”), Goldthwait showed his potential to funnel taboo subject matters into oddly touching, relatable human dramas, a proclivity he kicked up to a whole new level with the subversive black comedy “World’s Greatest Dad,” which features Robin Williams in one of his all-time great roles.

Goldthwait has kept innovating, with each new movie offering a fresh perspective on the naive assumptions »

Lorne Michaels on ‘SNL’s’ Future, Seth Meyers’ Partisanship, Recruiting Larry David and Not Apologizing for Trump

24 June 2016 7:15 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Lorne Michaels is ready to get away from it all.

Not permanently, of course. Michaels has never been more powerful in television, as he oversees NBC’s late night crown jewels and produces buzzy comedies like IFC’s “Portlandia.” But after overseeing six episodes of NBC’s “Maya and Marty,” which came straight off the “Saturday Night Live” finale, he’s ready to take a two-week vacation. Then it’s back to scouting for new “Saturday Night Live” talent and prepping for the show’s 42nd season.

But before he hit the road, Michaels talked with IndieWire about the state of his ever-growing empire, which is gearing up to take on a historic election season.

Among the highlights: “Saturday Night Live” will likely produce several live primetime “Weekend Update” editions during the lead-up to the November election, just as it did in 2008 and 2012. Also: Michaels agrees that NBC’s “The Apprentice »

Alias Grace” follows the true story of poor Irish immigrant Grace Marks who, along with domestic servant James McDermott, was convicted of murdering her employer Thomas Kinnear and housekeeper Nancy Montgomery in 1843. While James was hanged, Grace received life imprisonment for her role in the crime. The conviction was highly controversial and Grace’s role in the murder was up for strong debate as to whether she took an active part in the crime or if she was simply an accessory. She was later exonerated after 30 years in jail. »

Last Week’S Review: ‘Veep’ Predicts the Apocalypse With a Stunning Twist

Immediate Reaction

Considering how well Season 5 of “Veep” has honored the spirit of its prior years, we really should’ve seen this coming: an episode not only dedicated to Catherine’s oft-mentioned and just as oft-forgotten documentary, but an episode told wholly from her perspective. Season 4 saw the show shift perspective in “Testimony,” as the Meyer camp was depicted via public video from C-span and recorded depositions rather than the typical all-access roaming camera. That was the season’s ninth episode, so again: We should’ve seen this coming.

Of course, even if we did, there was no way to prepare for the flood of information, big — like Mike’s impending dismissal — and small — like meeting Ben’s wife! “Kissing Your Sister” was chockfull of everything that fans have come to love about “Veep,” only told from a fresh perspective. »

Watch: ‘Westworld’ Trailer Reveals What ‘May Be Wrong With This World’

19 June 2016 6:02 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

HBO has been taking its time with this one, but now we’re finally getting a deeper look at Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy’s “Westworld,” based on the 1973 Michael Crichton film and executive produced by J.J. Abrams. What we’ve seen previously hints at something truly surreal, “questioning the nature of our reality.” And the trailer below, which premiered tonight before the latest episode of “Game of Thrones,” does pull back the nature of the dream in place — and how it may not be real.

Why ‘The Goldbergs’ Is Must-Watch Comedy

16 June 2016 10:41 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Having just wrapped its third season, “The Goldbergs” seems to only get funnier with time—in large part because of its award-worthy performers.  What makes comedy so difficult, according to Head of Talent and Casting for Sony Television Dawn Steinberg, is that you need to “stay true to the most outrageous moments and make them believable.” And that’s exactly what star Wendi McLendon-Covey does so brilliantly as ’80s mom Beverly Goldberg. Opposite her is Jeff Garlin, whose background in improv adds wonders to the show’s dynamic ensemble. “[He’s] one of the most fun people to watch. He’s very paternal towards all the other people on the show and he really brings that out in each scene,” Steinberg says.  Round out the cast with supporting player George Segal and the rest of the gang, and there’s no doubt “The Goldbergs” is one of the strongest comedies to grace TV this season. For more on “The Goldbergs,” watch the exclusive clip below. And be sure to get more advice from Steinberg, only on Backstage.com. Inspired by this post?
