Scott’s Los Angeles Film Festival Dispatch, Part One

15 June 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

Independent cinema is the clear focus at La Film Fest. This doesn’t mean they’re completely clear of the sort of pre-packaged, studio-lite fare that tends to climb awards-season ladders into our multiplexes – this year’s festival featured films starring Chris Messina, Idris Elba, Alfred Molina, Gemma Arterton, Gael Garcia Bernal, Gillian Jacobs, and Topher Grace, plus The Conjuring 2, an outright studio film. And even those films without such attachments are not entirely free from the influence, following familiar beats and a sort of glossy presentation in an attempt to “fit in” with the big boys. The extent to which these films could truly be called “independent” is thus debatable, and lends a sort of discomfort to aligning them with truly adventurous voices. That disparity is most evident in four thrillers that played at the festival, which range from practically begging to be let in to actively refusing any sense of acceptance. »

‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ Returning to HBO for a 9th Season

14 June 2016 10:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

After a nearly five-year hiatus, “Curb Your Enthusiasm” will return to HBO for a ninth season. The news was announced by Casey Bloys, president of programming. When asked why he decided to come back, series creator/star Larry David deferred to history: “In the immortal words of Julius Caesar, ‘I left, I did nothing, I returned.’” “Pretty pretty good” is an understatement today, dear readers.

Bloys added that “We’re thrilled that Larry has decided to do a new season of ‘Curb’ and can’t wait to see what he has planned.” No other details have been announced, but fans of the irreverent, semi-improvised comedy are sure to be pleased regardless — this news has been anticipated for years.

With 80 episodes to date, “Curb Your Enthusiasm” is already HBO’s longest-running scripted drama or comedy series. David previously co-created “Seinfeld,” with a reunion of sorts occurring on the most recent season of “Curbed.” The news raises many questions that we’ll be left to speculate about for the next several months, perhaps the most pertinent of which is: “Do you respect wood?”

The pic also stars Jesse Plemons, Riley Keough and Ron Canada.

The Discovery” was produced by Alex Orlovsky of Verisimilitude and James D. Stern of Endgame Entertainment, and was co-financed by Endgame Entertainment and Protagonist Pictures. Executive Producers are Mike Goodridge and Dimitra Tsingou for Protagonist, and Julie Goldstein and Lucas Smith for Endgame.

The Discovery” joins Netflix’s growing slate of original films debuting this year, including “The Fundamentals of Caring,” starring Paul Rudd, Craig Roberts and Selena Gomez (premiering on June 24); “Tallulah,” toplined by Ellen Page and Allison Janney (July 29); “The Little Prince,” featuring the voices of Rudd, Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, Marion Cotillard and Benicio Del Toro (August 5); and David Michôd’s “War Machine,” starring Brad Pitt, Anthony Michael Hall, Topher Grace and Will Poulter (fall of 2016).

How to Tour Los Angeles Film Festival Like a Pro

1 June 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Even native Angelenos may have trouble keeping up with the fast-changing nightlife in Culver City. Here are tips for visitors to the Los Angeles Film Festival, be they from Sao Paolo or Santa Monica.

Special Screenings

Laff will open with “Lowriders,” a drama surrounding the re-emergence of SoCal low-rider Latino culture. “Opening Night,” a musical with N’Sync’s J.C. Chasez and Topher Grace, is quintessentially L.A., while documentary “Dying Laughing” features big-time comedians talking about what it’s like to bomb on stage. One senior programmer calls “Heis (Chronicles)” “the French ‘Tiny Furniture,’ ” referring to Lena Dunham’s indie debut.

Fest Goes West

Laff’s move to Culver City brings an added bonus with the historic Culver Hotel steps outside the main venue. Its nightly 4-7 happy hour gets crowded in the Grand Lobby, so arrive early for $9 cocktails, $6 beer/wine and eats under $10. By 8 p.m., live jazz fills the cavernous ceilings. »

6 Days of the Year That Will Probably Be Movies Soon

27 April 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

We've seen "Valentine's Day" and "New Year's Eve," and now we prepare to welcome Garry Marshall's latest rom-com "Mother's Day," which hits theaters April 29th.

We eat these delightful star-studded ensemble films up like buttered popcorn, and chances are we probably haven't seen the last of these holiday-themed love stories on the big screen. What other days-of-the-year movies can we expect in the future? Here are our pitches for 6 "holiday" flicks that we could see being produced. And we'd totally watch them, by the way.

Your move, Hollywood. We'll be waiting for your call.

1. "April Fool's Day"

Synopsis: Ashton Kutcher acts as the chorus of this fable, in the super-meta role of the host of a formerly popular celebrity pranking show called "Burned" (a la "Punk'd.") In order to revive the near-forgotten series, a live April Fool's extravaganza is planned and will epically "burn" the world's biggest and most scrutinized (supposed diva) pop star, »
