5 Reasons Why French Legend Isabelle Huppert Deserves to Win the Oscar for Best Actress

18 February 2017 10:06 AM, PST | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

With final Academy Award voting coming to an end on Tuesday February 21st, it seems like a good time to champion what has been the most honored performance of the year, and which, if voters are looking in the right place, should be crowned on Oscar Sunday. The race for the Best Actress statuette has been fierce this awards season, but the one actress that has come out on top in more occasions than any other is Isabelle Huppert. For her role in Paul Verhoeven’s “Elle,” the revered French icon has earned her first-ever Oscar nomination, and there is no one that deserves to win more than she does. In case there is any doubt that Huppert is at the top of her craft and should be recognized, here are five reasons why “the greatest actress working today” should take home the coveted statuette.

Director Travis Mathews Talks About His Psycological Thriller Discreet

18 February 2017 6:59 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Discreet is a psychological thriller about a mentally disturbed drifter, who in returning home to Texas to make amends with an alcoholic mother, is confronted with a haunted past. Desperate to deal with his demons, Alex sets out to avenge the source, while engaging in psychosexual rendezvous with various strangers along the way. Flashbacks to abusive scenes, creepy motivational videos and images of a floating dead body, blur the lines between reality and fantasy in this thought-provoking, twisted mystery.

The film made its World Premier at the Berlinale film festival this past week, giving us a chance to meet and chat with director, Travis Mathews (Interior Leather Bar and I Want Your Love).  In speaking with Mathews, one can easily detect his fascination with exploring taboo topics and delving into the deeper psyche of his characters, which explains his psychology background. He was very insightful as we touched upon several topics, »

‘Elle’s Isabelle Huppert On “Depth And Integrity” Found In Paul Verhoeven’s Potentially Controversial Film

16 February 2017 4:13 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Acting in films since her teens, Isabelle Huppert is one of France's most established talents, and shows no signs of slowing down. Almost unbelievably, for the muse of Michael Haneke and the late Claude Chabrol, this is the first time she has been nominated for an Oscar. From the moment it premiered in Cannes in May, Paul Verhoeven's provocative Elle seemed destined to set Huppert on the awards circuit—she now sports a Golden Globe and myriad Best Actress prizes from… »

Tspdt’s 1,000 Greatest Films 2017 Edition Adds ‘The New World,’ ‘Amour,’ ‘Hunger,’ and More

13 February 2017 11:56 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It’s just a few weeks until this year’s Oscars, which means the Hollywood machine is running out of steam to provide “new angles” on various awards season campaigns and Oscar bloggers are trying to squeeze traffic out of last-minute prediction shifts. It’s fitting, then, that around this time every year we get a rather substantial update of one of the most comprehensive polls on the greatest films of all-time, not simply the November/December releases with the biggest marketing budget come Academy Awards time.

That’s right, They Shoot Pictures, Don’t They? has now published their 2017 edition of 1,000 Greatest Films, culled together from an exhaustive list of major publications and critics. Still topped by Citizen Kane, I often find the most interesting portion to be those films that have most moved around, for better or worse, especially those with newfound critical admiration. This year, Terrence Malick »

The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Actress race

The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Actress race The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Actress race Adriana Floridia2/10/2017 11:36:00 Am

This year's Best Actress race is extremely competitive.

Some of our favourite performances couldn't secure the nomination, and it was simply because there were so many incredible female performances. We're sad that names like Annette Bening for 20th Century Women, Amy Adams for Arrival and Hailee Steinfeld for The Edge of Seventeen weren't among the nominees, but we also love the five nominated performances so much. Seriously, it was just a great year for women acting in film, and with the talent out there today, it's always going to be hard, and therefore even more of an honour, to land that Oscar nomination.

Though there's five women in the running here, the race has been pretty much narrowed down to two major threats. »

Sundance ’17 and on to Rotterdam ‘17: Interview with Kirsten Tan, Writer and Director of ‘Pop Aye’

7 February 2017 10:35 AM, PST | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

This first feature of Kirsten Tan premiered in Sundance ‘17 World Cinema Dramatic Competition. Its provenance is Singapore but it takes place in Thailand. It continued onward to the Hivos Tiger Competition at Iffr (R’dam).

The thrill of interviewing here in Sundance is that you see a film; you have an impression and while it is still fresh you meet the filmmakers without having much time for any research or reflection. And then you get to see them again as “old friends” when you meet again in Rotterdam.

As Kirsten, her producer Weijie Lai and I sat down at the Sundance Co-op on Main Street here in Park City, I really had little idea of where the interview would take us, somewhat analogously to her film in which an architect, disenchanted with life in general, being put aside as “old” in his own highly successful architectural firm and in a stale relationship with his wife, »

A Second Season Of Bruno Dumont’s ‘Li’l Quinquin’ Is On The Way

6 February 2017 8:57 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s early days, but it looks like we may have just found our most anticipated “TV show” of 2018. The best limited series of 2014 you didn’t see? Bruno Dumont’s hilarious, acidic and incredibly dark French police procedural and coming of age dramedy, “Lil’ Quinquin” (here’s our review from Cannes). To give you context of this strange little oddity coming from this filmmaker, The Guardian perfectly explained it all with this headline: “Why France’s God Of Grim Made A Knock Out Clouseu-Style Caper.” Indeed,“Lil Quinquin” was a game changer for Dumont, the provocative filmmaker behind some of the most disturbing and shocking films you may not have seen (Lars Von Trier, Michael Haneke and Gasper Noe tend to earn all the buzz, but Dumont can be twice as shocking).

Oscar Nominee Isabelle Huppert Looks Back at Her Early Career

3 February 2017 10:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After a compelling 40-plus-year career, Isabelle Huppert received her first Oscar nomination for her complex performance in Sony Classics’ “Elle.” The recognition was a “This film means so much to me,” she says. “And with this nomination, [director] Paul Verhoeven is also rewarded.” Huppert was raised in the western suburbs of Paris and trained at a conservatory near Versailles.

Variety first noticed Huppert in a July 12, 1972, review of “The Bar at the Crossing,” which starred singer-songwriter Jacques Brel. Her breakthrough was in 1977’s “The Lacemaker,” directed by Claude Goretta. Since then, she has demonstrated her range in such varied films as “Coup de torchon,” “Heaven’s Gate,” “Madame Bovary,” and “The Piano Teacher.” A prolific and versatile star, in the past five years she has chalked up 25 film, TV, and stage performances. Last year, thanks to her role in “Things to Come,” a Variety review dubbed her “our greatest living actress. »

Emmanuelle Riva, César, Lumière, and BAFTA Best Actress winner and Oscar nominee for Michael Haneke's Best Foreign Language Film winner Amour died at the age of 89 on Friday, January 27, 2017 in Paris.

Riva's performance with Eiji Okada in Alain Renais' Hiroshima Mon Amour in 1959 cuts so sharply to the truth about love and war that even after many viewings it is difficult to fully grasp the film's historical significance, storytelling innovations and stylistic brilliance.

Emmanuelle Riva obituary

29 January 2017 8:22 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Actor celebrated for her intellectual performances who achieved early success in Hiroshima Mon Amour

For her brave, unsentimental performance as an elderly woman agonisingly declining physically and mentally in Michael Haneke’s Amour (2012), Emmanuelle Riva, who has died aged 89, became the oldest best actress Oscar nominee ever, at 85. It was more than half a century since Riva’s soothing cadenced voice and delicate features had dominated Alain Resnais’ masterful Hiroshima Mon Amour (1959).

In that film, the voice of Riva as Elle is first heard over horrific newsreel images of the victims of the atom bomb, and it is almost 10 minutes into the film before we see her in the arms of her Japanese lover (Eiji Okada), called simply Lui. She is a French actor in Hiroshima, he is an architect. The repeated phrases of their dialogue echo throughout the film written by Marguerite Duras. He says: “You saw nothing in Hiroshima. »

Newswire: R.I.P. Amour actress Emmanuelle Riva

28 January 2017 3:54 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Variety reports that celebrated French actress Emmanuelle Riva has died, at the age of 89. Over the course of her career, Riva worked with some of the most prominent directors in French and European cinema, with Alain Resnais, Jean-Pierre Melville, Georges Franju, Krzysztof Kieślowski, and Michael Haneke all employing her talents. Her work with Haneke, on 2012’s Amour, (besides being both riveting and heartbreaking in its own right) earned her the distinction of being the oldest person ever to be nominated for Best Actress or Best Actor by the Academy Awards.

In her early career, Riva played the mysterious muse, lending wounded passion to her breakout role in Resnais’ philosophical romance, Hiroshima Mon Amour. She played a similar enigma in Franju’s Thérèse Desqueyroux, portraying a woman who lashes out at her hapless husband and unhappy existence in subtle, deadly ways.
