Scorsese (Costly) Short Featuring the Director, DiCaprio, and De Niro Has Been Pulled from Venice Festival

29 August 2015 6:29 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'The Audition' poster with Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro. Martin Scorsese short 'The Audition' pulled from Venice Film Festival No major international film festival is worth its mainstream U.S. media salt unless there's at least one screening featuring the latest work of a major Hollywood name. The Venice Film Festival is surely no exception, especially as it's the year's final internationally renowned European movie fest, held shortly before the fall – i.e., awards – movie season begins. Well, one work by a top Hollywood name will no longer be available at Venice: The Audition, a short film directed by and featuring veteran Martin Scorsese, has been pulled out. "We have just been informed by the production that due to unexpected technical problems the film could not be here in time," festival organizers said in a statement earlier today, Sat., Aug. 29, '15.

Ten Thousand Saints movie review: exhausted urban elegy

18 August 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

An achingly perfect evocation of New York’s East Village in the 1980s and an amazing cast cannot make this tale of adolescent anxiety catch fire. I’m “biast” (pro): love the cast

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Adolescent anxiety playing out against the tumultuous backdrop of the late 1980s in New York’s East Village? I’m there. Hell, I was there, as a student at Nyu at the very moment this tale is set, and I can attest that its evocation of the place and time is achingly perfect, from the unrenovated tenements to the funky cafes to the scene at punk club Cbgb to the dangerous excitement in the air. Alas that the story of young Jude (Asa Butterfield: X+Y), who has decamped from boring Vermont to live with his drug-dealer dad, »

Trailer Watch: 'Doll & Em' Launch an Off-Broadway Play About Their Friendship in Season 2

17 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

When we saw them in the first season of "Doll & Em," the fictional versions of actress Emily Mortimer and her less successful Bff Dolly Wells were on the outs after Doll's short tenure as Em's personal assistant turned into an "All About Eve" situation.  The show's sophomore season finds the two on more equal footing, with the lifelong pals in NYC attempting to launch an off-Broadway play about themselves. Olivia Wilde and Evan Rachel Wood guest star as themselves, angling to play Doll and Em, while bold-namers Ewan McGregor and Harvey Weinstein also appear in the trailer. But the heart of the show is an exploration of how their professional partnership impacts their grown-up friendship, which becomes more and more complicated with success. "Doll & Em" Season 2 premieres Sunday, September 13 at 10:30pm on HBO.

16 August 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Though there may not be as much pomp and circumstance about HBO’s comedy series Doll & Em as there is surrounding Game of Thrones or the cable network’s other comedy series like Silicon Valley and Veep, the show starring Emily Mortimer (The Newsroom) and Dolly Wells (Some Girls) has enough of a following and acclaim […]

Watch: Harvey Weinstein, Olivia Wilde, And More In First Trailer For 'Doll & Em' Season 2 Starring Emily Mortimer

14 August 2015 8:28 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

I'm not sure how many people watched the first season of "Doll & Em," but I'm very glad HBO renewed the show. It's a terrific showbiz dramedy starring Emily Mortimer (playing herself) and the actresses' real life best friend Dolly Wells that isn't just about navigating the world of Hollywood, but also about the balance of middle-aged friendships and more. It's great stuff (read our review of the first season) and the pair are back for more. The first trailer for season two has dropped, and it looks like once again, there will be a well selected batch of cameos. Harvey Weinstein, Olivia Wilde, and Evan Rachel Wood are among the faces that pop-up, with the next batch of episodes seemingly finding the pair trying to put on a stage production. And of course, they run into the kind of problems only they could get into. It looks like another warm »

New York I Love You: Berman & Pulcini’s Schmaltz Soaked Latest

Nostalgia, especially in large doses, tends to hobble the authenticity of a text, whether in the literary or cinematic realm. On a superficial level, serving as a love letter to a bygone era of 1980s New York, Eleanor Hendricks’ novel Ten Thousand Saints falls under the quirky spigot of directing duo Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini, the team behind the Oscar nominated American Splendor from 2003. In the decade since that critically championed title, they’ve continued with a particular strain of fluffy cornball items. Following a brief assay into studio filmmaking with The Nanny Diaries (2007), they were responsible for a pair of sickly sweet titles headlined by prized performers like Kevin Kline in The Extra Man (2010) and Kristen Wiig in Girl Most Likely (2012). Though their latest venture is slightly more sobering, at least in a notable absence of »

Ten Thousand Saints – The Review

13 August 2015 7:40 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

It was the hair, at first I thought I would hate this movie because of the kid’s hair.  Allow me to explain, Jude is one messed up teenager (aren’t all teenagers messed up in the movies?)  At the very start we see his Father and Mother break up.  His Father,( Ethan Hawke: Gattaca), likes to grow marijuana in his green house, and that is where he sleeps when Mom kicks him out of the house.  Jude’s Father, Les, explains to young Jude,( Henry Keleman,) exactly what happened and how that will impact the future story.

Fast forward a few years and Jude, now played by Asa Butterfield, is a young man with troubles.  He and his best friend,( apparently his only friend,) Teddy (Avan Jogia) like to get high and listen to Hard Core Punk Rock. Through the early part of the movie Jude has one »

Charlotte Rampling Joins Young Indian Auteur Ritesh Batra's 'Sense of an Ending'

7 August 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Principal photography is set to begin August 16 on "The Sense of an Ending," with a quartet of leading ladies including Charlotte Rampling (a potential awards contender for "45 Years"), Harriet Walter, Emily Mortimer and Michelle Dockery now part of a cast led by Jim Broadbent, who plays a divorced retiree. Penned by Nick Payne, whose Broadway play "Constellations" led by Jake Gyllenhaal got a Tony nomination, the film is lifted from the 2011 novel by Julian Barnes that follows Tony as he receives an unexpected letter from a lawyer that forces him to confront his own past — and unfulfilling present — including the suicide of his childhood best friend. The film marks Payne's first screenplay. Director Ritesh Batra nabbed attention at Cannes 2013 with his Critics' Week drama "The Lunchbox," released by Sony Pictures Classics in February 2014 and a 2015 BAFTA nominee. His cast will also be joined by Billy Howle, Freya Mavor and Joe Alwyn. »

After crazy 'Sleep Hollow'/'Bones crossover, what other shows need to meet?

6 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The upcoming "Sleepy Hollow"/"Bones" crossover (not to be confused with the hollow bones syndrome that afflicted Emily Mortimer's character on "30 Rock") is a throwback to an earlier age in TV, when crossover episodes were common, and not just between two shows with a common producer (which NBC still does with its Chicago fire/cop/hospital series), nor even between two shows that seemed particularly compatible.  Before Fox's day at press tour, we got some more specific details about the event, which will happen on October 29. Just in time for Halloween, the scientific world of Bones meets the supernatural world of Sleepy Hollow in a crossover event to thrill the living, the dead and everything in between, airing Thursday, Oct. 29. On Bones (8:00-9:00 Pm Et/Pt), the grisly discovery of human remains lead Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Booth (David Boreanaz) on a hunt for clues, during which »

The Emmys are still important, just not as a barometer of quality

17 July 2015 6:31 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The nominations for the 67th annual Primetime Emmys were announced recently, and like all nominations in recent memory, it’s just as notable for what was snubbed as for what did end up nominated. With this becoming an increasing trend, many have taken to questioning the importance of the Emmys, and whether they’re relevant in this day and age, especially as shows that can be categorised as hour-long comedies or half-hour dramas are just the latest in a long line of things that have left the Academy scrambling. The Emmys are still relevant, however, but not in the way that it’s usually presented. Rather, the Emmys work best in the current television landscape as a way to point budding television fans in the right direction of where to begin exploring.

Consider, for example, the case of the modern-day individual who discovers they have a deeper appreciation for television than any of their peers. »
