Sony hack: Sorkin back at it, slams 'easily distracted members of the American press'

17 December 2014 4:34 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Sony hack story is going to keep unfolding and there will be no shortage of opinions and takeaways. Writer Aaron Sorkin already took aim at the media for its behavior in the early days of the dust-up, sentiments echoed by "Nightcrawler" writer/director Dan Gilroy, whose film is very much about ethical slippage in journalism. Well, the "Newsroom" creator and "Social Network" screenwriter fired back yet again today after news broke that North Korea was, according to the FBI, "centrally involved" in the hack. To wit: Today the U.S. succumbed to an unprecedented attack on our most cherished, bedrock principle of free speech by a group of North Korean terrorists who threatened to kill moviegoers in order to stop the release of a movie. The wishes of the terrorists were fulfilled in part by easily distracted members of the American press who chose gossip and schadenfreude-fueled reporting over »

'Nightcrawler' director Dan Gilroy calls out media behavior in the wake of Sony hack

17 December 2014 3:35 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

At this point we're pretty far along on the Sony hack story. But a number of morally and ethically suspect pieces were published a week ago and, of course, news organizations rationalized their behavior. Since then, things have taken a darker turn with terrorist threats and the decision, first by theater owners and then by a corporate giant, to bow to those whims. But before all that started happening, I got "Nightcrawler" writer and director Dan Gilroy on the phone earlier this week to talk about the media's role and responsibilities when something like that arises. Reporters devouring a hacked carcass, scavenging for ratings under the thin guise of integrity — I was, to say the least, quite reminded of his film. "'Nightcrawler' does come across as an indictment," Gilroy says, "but the indictment I'm trying to make isn't so specific to stringers or even the world of the »

Oscars news: Behind the scenes of 'The Imitation Game' & 'Selma,' 'Boyhood' wins with Chicago and Toronto critics

16 December 2014 1:19 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

In a fascinating first-person account, screenwriter Graham Moore candidly "discusses the final scene of 'The Imitation Game', where code-breaking genius Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) reveals to his old colleague Joan (Keira Knightley) just how extensively the British government has persecuted him for being gay. Moore also explains why the film controversially omitted Turing's eventual suicide via cyanide-laced apple, an act only discussed in a closing-credits title card." Vulture -Break- Updated: Experts' Oscars predictions in 19 categories As Cara Buckley notes: "A colleague emerged from the Toronto International Film Festival highly annoyed that Jake Gyllenhaal’s creepy sang-froid performance in Dan Gilroy’s 'Nightcrawler' was not generating a whole lot of awards buzz. Oh what a difference three months makes. Last week, Mr. Gyllenhall learned that the Screen Actors Guild and the Holly..." »

'Layover', the Discovery of a Hidden Gem

16 December 2014 12:07 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This time of year most everyone in the film world is talking about Oscar contenders, movies like Boyhood, Birdman, and Selma, which get more press each week as awards season marches on. However, I'm here today to provide a recommendation for a film you likely haven't heard of, which you can check out right now on VOD. The film is called Layover, and it is an impressive high-concept drama that took me completely by surprise. The first outing from writer-director Joshua Caldwell, Layover is very much in the vein of Richard Linklater's Before trilogy. Driven not by traditional plot mechanics but by the characters we see on screen and the way they interact with the world around them, Caldwell's primarily French-language film centers on a Parisian woman named Simone (Nathalie Fay) as she navigates the city of Los Angeles for a night after her connecting flight to Singapore is cancelled. »

'Nightcrawler' Wins 7 San Diego Film Critics Prizes, Cotillard Takes Best Actress

15 December 2014 1:54 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

While this sleazy, smart thriller remains an Oscar dark horse for leading actor Jake Gyllenhaal and original screenwriter/first-time director Dan Gilroy, "Nightcrawler" all but swept the San Diego Film Critics Society awards. Best Supporting Actress winner Rene Russo got some much-deserved love for her performance as a blood-grubbing morning news director, as did cinematographer Robert Elswit, who's more likely to land an Oscar nomination for "Inherent Vice," another film set in La's dark demimondes. We've been rooting for "Nightcrawler" since it premiered at Toronto. Last week, Jake Gyllenhaal surprise-landed both SAG and Golden Globes nominations for his portrayal of camera-wielding sociopath Lou Bloom, a destined movie icon alongside "Taxi Driver"'s Travis Bickle. Here's the full list of San Diego winners, which notably includes Marion Cotillard for "Two Days, One Night," who was snubbed by both the Golden Globes and SAG. Best »

Off the Carpet: Three films surge as the Oscar season's critical darlings

15 December 2014 12:16 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

This tally will change throughout the day and certainly the week as more organizations declare 2014 superlatives, but at present, critics and precursor Best Picture honors break down thusly: seven for "Boyhood," two for "Birdman" and one each for "The Grand Budapest Hotel," "Ida," "A Most Violent Year," "Nightcrawler," "Selma" and "Snowpiercer." But "Birdman" and "Grand Budapest" have led the lion's share of nominations announcements, making it clear, if this morning's Bfca list hadn't crystallized it, that the season's critical darlings are Wes Anderson, Alejandro González Iñárritu and Richard Linklater. Of course, the only one of those films that needed the boost was "The Grand Budapest Hotel." A March release that was always going to count on being brought back around by these groups, the film is having its "oh yeah" moment for voters who might be looking to take another peek, or move it on up the screener pile if »
