This morning in Rome, Biennale president Paolo Baratta and Venice Film Festival chief Alberto Barbera unveiled the lineup for the 71st Venice Film Festival, which features some extraordinarily exciting titles and intriguingly under-the-radar picks.
Twenty films will be competing in the main competition, 19 of which are world premieres with one international premiere out of the lot. Out of all the titles at Venice this year, Birdman, which stars Michael Keaton and features a star-studded cast including Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton, Andrea Riseborough, Amy Ryan, Emma Stone and Naomi Watts, is undoubtedly the title with the most chance of gaining Oscar attention this year after making the rounds on the festival circuit (it’s heading to the Toronto International Film Festival next).
Also anticipated are Manglehorn, a collaboration between Prince Avalanche helmer David Gordon Green and Al Pacino, and Andrew Niccol’s Good Kill, with Ethan Hawke, Bruce Greenwood, January Jones and Zoe Kravitz. »

The Captive comes to theaters in 2014 and stars Ryan Reynolds, Scott Speedman, Rosario Dawson, Mireille Enos, Kevin Durand, Alexia Fast, Peyton Kennedy, Bruce Greenwood. The film is directed by Atom Egoyan. »
Atom Egoyan went to the Cannes Film Festival this spring with this latest effort, "The Captive," and the results were not good. Not even close. Our own Jessica Kiang noted that were boos scattered at her screening, and her savage review called the film a "lurid, credulity-stretching" dud, and something of a "Prisoners"-lite as it also tackles a missing child, and the consequences that fall out on her parents and those around them. Starring Ryan Reynolds, Scott Speedman, Mireille Enos, Rosario Dawson, Kevin Durand, Alexia Fast and Bruce Greenwood, the story centers around the disappearance of young girl, and what follows when eight years later, clues begin to surface that she's alive. What gets uncovered is something sinister, criminal and creepy, with the film hopping around in time, to tell a story of the investigation and much more. On paper it sounds like something decent, but in execution, it appears not to have. »

Coming off of a ratings bounce from its documentary premiere “Oj: Trial of a Century,” Investigation Discovery is diving deeper into longform docs with three new titles on tap: “A Question of Innocence,” “The Joe Show” and “Hate in America.”

Director: Atom Egoyan.
Running Time: 114 minutes.
Synopsis: Atom Egoyan’s haunting true mystery about who killed three children in a small town. The police identify three teens, aka the West Memphis Three, as committing the murders during a satanic ritual but the truth may be scarier as a mother (Reese Witherspoon) and investigator (Colin Firth) suspect all is not as it appears.
Devil’S Knot is based on a true story from the early 1990s where a trio of children went missing from their neighbourhood in West Memphis, Arkansas. The three were found horrifically mutilated and bound in a local river the following day, and just a few weeks later, three teenagers were arrested and charged with their murders. Atom Egoyan’s film is a dramatisation of those events of May, »

Directed by Kelly Reichardt
Written by Jonathan Raymond
In the opening scene to Kelly Reichardt’s Meek’s Cutoff, the characters stop to gather water at a river. The year is 1845, and this group of travelers are made up of three families that are traversing the treacherous Oregon Trail. After obtaining the water, they leave. Reichardt’s camera stays. She lingers on the river just long enough to fill a viewer with a sense of foreboding. This is likely the last place of refuge for miles. Everything, from here on, will be trouble.
Words are secondary to Reichardt. For the first ten minutes of the film, nobody speaks. The characters simply amble through the harsh, desert-like landscape. While this makes the story appear aimless at times, in reality Reichardt is subtly building the tension. Like the river in the opening scene, she does not overstate conflict. »

Egoyan brings crime drama "The Captive" this year, starring Vancouver's Ryan Reynolds along with Scott Speedman, Rosario Dawson, Mireille Enos, and longtime collaborator, Quebec native Bruce Greenwood.

A perennial favorite at the Cannes Film Festival, Atom Egoyan returns this year to the official competition with The Captive, a psychological thriller starring Ryan Reynolds, Kevin Durand, Mireille Enos, Scott Speedman, Rosario Dawson and Bruce Greenwood in a cameo. Despite the beauty of its atmospheric visuals, the movie failed to impress. It was largely panned by the critics at its screening this week, leaving them with mixed feelings, some even booing as the end credits began to roll. The synopsis sounded promising: Eight years after the disappearance of Cassandra, some disturbing indications pop up in the hotel rooms her mother cleans, indicating she may still be alive. Atom Egoyan was inspired by a real-life story, but stretched his imagination to include the "big brother is watching you" notion. Hit the jump for more. At the press conference following the screening, the director explained "the original spark" of The Captive »
