Orson Welles' Last Film 'The Other Side Of The Wind' May Finally Arrive In 2015

29 October 2014 8:09 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For almost as long as this site has been in existence, we've been patiently tracking the progress of Orson Welles' final film, "The Other Side Of The Wind." For years, Welles' pal Peter Bogdanovich has been trying to restore and release the unfinished project, but legal rights and other issues continually halted progress. Things were further muddied when in 2012, Henry Jaglom dropped 30 minutes of randomly assembled footage online (it was swiftly yanked). But could the movie finally see the light day next year? Well, according The New York Times, that's the hopeful plan. They report that Royal Road Entertainment has, somewhat miraculously, after five years of ironing out the details, managed the secure the rights to the movie from the various parties involved, and aim to release the movie to coincide with the 100th anniversary of Welles' birth on May 6, 2015. And they will be taking 'Wind' to the American »

Nebraska To Be Shown In Color, Despite Alexander Payne's Best Wishes

5 August 2014 8:33 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In his later years, filmmaker Orson Welles bore witness to an atrocity he probably saw as the most denigrating compromise between art and commerce. That atrocity was the colorization of classic films, a phenomenon that none other than media giant Ted Turner was a huge champion of. As if he were predicting Turner's unsuccessful future bid to colorize his own baby, Citizen Kane, he issued a warning to fellow filmmaker Henry Jaglom: "Keep Ted Turner and his goddamn Crayolas away from my movies." Now, 25 years after that battle for art was won, someone else has broken out the "goddamn Crayolas" and decided to air Alexander Payne's Nebraska in full color. SlashFilm broke the news that Epix Network, the cable channel with the rights to premiere Nebraska on television, is going to be running the film twice in a row this Sunday night. At 8 Pm, the film will be »

Film Review: ‘The M Word’

2 May 2014 3:43 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Menopause may well be a universal condition, but the brand of narcissistic self-examination on display in Henry Jaglom’s “The M Word” is distinctly Southern Californian. One might even say it’s Jaglomian, given the iconoclastic writer-director’s prior forays into such delicate distaff issues as body image (“Eating”), pregnancy (“Babyfever”) and compulsive shopping (“Going Shopping”). For his 19th self-financed and –distributed feature, Jaglom toys little with his formula of actorly improvisations and a plot that allows for maximum use of his sprawling Santa Monica home (plus maximum exposure for ingenue du jour Tanna Frederick). The lively but wildly erratic result will surely please Jaglom’s winnowing fan base, while baffling most others and doing little to deter Jaglom himself, who already has movie number 20 in the can.

Jaglom, who started out as an ancillary member of Bob Rafelson’s Bbs Productions group (where he directed his one and only studio-backed feature, »

Michael Imperioli talks the mob, meditation, menopause, and his new film 'The M Word'

30 April 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

From Goodfellas to The Sopranos, Michael Imperioli often plays characters associated with the mob and murder. However, he takes on an entirely different subject in his new film The M Word: menopause.

Imperioli plays Charlie Moon, a TV exec brought in to change a struggling local station when an actress named Moxie starts to film a documentary about the taboo subject she notices is happening around her but no one seems to talk about. The subject didn’t matter to Imperioli, who signed on to the movie without a script and little information just to have the opportunity to »

The M Word, an Unstructured Gabfest Makes a Mess of Midlife Upheaval

29 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

A pluralistic personal account of menopause seems like a fine idea for a movie, but was Henry Jaglom the right person to make it?

In The M Word, Jaglom smartly sees a parallel between midlife hormone upheaval and sudden workplace superfluousness, but his unstructured-gabfest approach makes rather a mess of it.

Somewhere in L.A., a scrappy little TV station is losing money and about to get downsized into oblivion. Maybe there's still hope for Moxie, a charismatic kids' show actress (Tanna Frederick) who beguiles the newly arrived emissary (Michael Imperioli) from the station's corporate parent. To her he offers not just the chance to trade up from a schlemiel boyfriend (Corey Feldman) but also an official green light on a pet-project menopause documentary. Then »

Corey Feldman and Michael Imperioli Star in 'The M Word' Trailer

7 March 2014 5:01 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Like many Corey Feldman fans, the characters in The M Word are struggling with Menopause. We have your first look at the trailer, which brings former child star turned author, musician and ice skater Feldman back to the big screen for the first time in over a decade. Opening in Los Angeles and New York in April before expanding wider, The M Word follows the personal changes at a local TV station that is threatened by economic downturn, possible in-house theft and massive job loss. They decide to subvert all of this by taking on an ill-advised documentary about Menopause. Henry Jaglom directs this indie comedy, which also stars Michael Imperioli, Frances Fisher, Gregory Harrison and Julie Davis.

The M Word was released in 2013 and stars Tanna Frederick, Michael Imperioli, Frances Fisher, Mary Crosby, Gregory Harrison, Julie Davis, Eliza Roberts, Zack Norman. The film is directed by Henry Jaglom. »

Maximilian Schell obituary

2 February 2014 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Actor and director who brought dark good looks and a commanding presence to his roles

Austrian by birth, Swiss by circumstance and international by reputation, Maximilian Schell, who has died aged 83, was a distinguished actor, director, writer and producer. However, he will be best remembered as an actor, especially for his Oscar-winning performance in Stanley Kramer's Judgment at Nuremberg (1961) – an early highlight among scores of television and movie appearances. He also directed opera, worked tirelessly in the theatre and made six feature films, including Marlene (1984) - a tantalising portrait of Dietrich, his co-star in Judgment, who is heard being interviewed but not seen, except in movie extracts.

Schell courted controversy and much of his work, including The Pedestrian (1973), dealt with the second world war, its attendant crimes and the notion of collective guilt. In 1990, when he was offered a special award for his contributions to German film, he refused to accept it. »

Film Review: ‘Hollywood Seagull’

2 January 2014 2:30 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hollywood Seagull” updates Chekhov’s play by turning it into a tepid soap opera set in a gated clifftop Malibu compound inhabited by a bitter ex-movie star, her family and associates. This long-aborning first feature from director Michael Guinzburg comes off as a bit of a vanity showcase for his muse, co-scenarist, producer and star, Lara Romanoff, but the results are less than enchanting. After several years in the editing room (it was shot in 2009), the pic opened Dec. 27 at the Downtown Independent in Los Angeles, with further exposure likely to be an uphill struggle.

Villa Francesca is the oceanfront abode inhabited by retired judge Bruce (Biff McGuire), who named it after his late wife. A temporary resident is Bruce’s unhappy grandson Travis (Will Poston), an aspiring film director at odds with his unsupportive, bitchy mother, Irene Del Mar (Barbara Williams), who’s aged out of her erstwhile screen »
