FrightFest 2015: 'Landmine Goes Click' review

20 hours ago | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ Levan Bakhia's Landmine Goes Click (2015) is the kind of genre flick that comes along sometimes - where a director's intentions can be misinterpreted. The brutalisation of three female characters is horrific, but it would be a presumptuous leap to suggest the film itself flexes a misogynistic creed. Such assertions would woefully misconstrue Bakhia's thematic subtext, which is an examination and comment on the male mind warped by patriarchal thinking and a manipulative form of self-exculpation/cowardice. Its spiritual relation is perhaps Gaspar Noé's Irréversible (2002), a violent fantasy saga about two men filled with blind rage doling out vile retribution, after one's partner is raped in a Parisian subway.

Fest will open with the world premiere of “Muhammad,” the 171-minute epic from Iranian director Majid Majidi, shot by Italian cinematographer Vittorio Storaro. Mwff has received a record number of short films — over 1,200 (an increase of 42% over 2014) from some 64 countries, “evidence of the vitality of today’s young filmmakers,” notes Mwff president Serge Losique. Fest is adding a Chinese Cinema section with more than 10 new features.

The fest, above, nestled in the mountains of Colorado, has always been an intimate, casual, carefully curated event that isn’t just a competition but also a celebration of the best in film. Even though the festival doesn’t announce its lineup until the day before it begins unspooling, »

Jane Fonda has got something to say in new 'Youth' trailer

26 August 2015 9:40 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are a number of films from the 2015 Cannes Film Festival that have stuck with me over the past few months. Denis Villeneuve's "Sicario" (which will hit theaters in September), Jia Zhangke's "Mountains May Depart," Gaspar Noé's "Love" and Todd Haynes' "Carol" immediately come to mind for one reason or another.  The one film that I've actually been dying to see again, however, is Paolo Sorrentino's "Youth." Fox Searchlight picked up the drama before Cannes and clearly has high hopes it can make a dent during the upcoming awards season.  They are leading that charge with a Best Actor campaign for Michael Caine who, no surprise, is quite superb as a retired maestro whose annual summer treat contains a number of unexpected surprises.  You can watch Searchlight's first trailer for "Youth" (which is very Caine-centric) embedded at the bottom of this post.   Now, just in case »

20 Best Sound On Sight Podcast Episodes

23 August 2015 12:36 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

A while back, when we released the 400th episode of the Sound On Sight podcast, a few close friends and longtime listeners requested we compile a list of our favorite shows we recorded over the years. Now that the podcast has officially come to an end, I decided to finally set aside some time in my schedule and give them what they want. Initially, I set out to pick ten, but after 500 recordings and 8 long years, it was simply too hard to choose so few, so I opted for 20 instead. In selecting these episodes, I tried to show the wide range of genres we covered over the years, including Spaghetti Westerns, Italian Horror, Southern Gothic, underground cult, family friendly, foreign language and even Hollywood classics. We’ve been blessed with several guest hosts and interviews with many filmmakers including genre legends George A. Romero and John Landis, to name a few. »

Watch: 3 Nsfw Clips From Gaspar Noe's 'Love'

18 August 2015 9:32 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Now that the somewhat ejaculatory controversy of Gaspar Noe's Cannes Film Festival debut of "Love" has subsided, North American audiences will soon be able to consummate with the movie. In advance of a premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month, a few new clips are here to tease you. Read More: Cannes Review: Gaspar Noe's Hardcore And Softhearted 'Love' For a movie containing a lot of sex, two of the three scenes are dialogue driven, so don't expect to get too hot and bothered. But the third is a conversation that casually takes place between naked people, so you might want to close the office door before checking it out. "Love" will open in U.S. cinemas this fall.

Tiff Buy: Alchemy Takes French Horror Film 'Evolution'

13 August 2015 2:56 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Alchemy is making a name for itself on the international genre film scene. Ahead of the film's Toronto Film Festival premiere, the indie distributor has scooped up Hadžihalilović's "Evolution," her followup to provocative 2004 debut "Innocence." Set for Tiff's Vanguard slate before competing in San Sebastián, "Evolution" has an enticing synopsis: Nicolas, a 10-year-old boy, lives with his mother in a village on a remote island inhabited solely by women and young boys. In a hospital overlooking the ocean, all the boys are subjected to a mysterious medical treatment. Only Nicolas questions what is happening around him. He senses that his mother is lying to him, and is determined to find out what she does with the other women at night, on the beach. What he discovers is the beginning of a nightmare into which he is helplessly drawn. Read More: From Gaspar Noé to Jeremy Saulnier, Cinema Provocateurs Head to Toronto The project. »

'Trash' Starring Rooney Mara, Gaspar Noe's Love,' 'The Assassin' & Many More Set Fall Release Dates

12 August 2015 1:40 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Well, the New York Film Festival slate has been announced and with that out of the way, many of those movies can now reveal their release dates.  Gaspar Noe's "Love," Hou Hsiao-hsien's "The Assassin" and perhaps more curiously, Stephen Daldry's almost-forgotten Brazilian favela drama "Trash" co-starring Rooney Mara and Martin Sheen. The movie debuted last fall, but failed to make the fall film festival rounds like many expected (outside of the Rio Film Festival). Instead, the movie will now arrive on October 9th. Gaspar Noe's controversial 3D sex film "Love" finally lands stateside November 6th, and Hou Hsiao-hsien's "The Assassin," a film many thought was a strong contender to win the top prize at Cannes, lands on October 16th.  Also revealed are release dates for Laurie Anderson's latest, Guy Maddin's "The Forbidden Room" and festival favorites from Veronika Franz, Rick Alverson, Jafar Panahi and more. »

Tiff 2015 adds to their Documentary and Vanguard lineup

11 August 2015 9:11 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Toronto International Film Festival’s prominence on the festival circuit has only grown over the years, with films from numerous different fields having gone on to critical and commercial acclaim. Among the festival’s different categories are Tiff Docs and Vanguard. Tiff Docs allows documentaries to get their own spotlight at the festival, giving acclaimed documentarians such as Michael Moore and Frederick Wiseman a platform for their films. The Vanguard section, on the other hand, showcases films that aren’t easily categorisable into a specific genre. With the Canadian Films lineup announcement having revealed the first set of films playing in each group, Tiff today revealed more of the lineup in each section. The list of newly announced films, with their official synopses, is as follows.

Court changes film’s certification, meaning 16- and 17-year-olds can no longer see the film, which contains unsimulated sex scenes

Complaints of censorship have erupted in France after Love, the controversial 3D film from enfant-terrible auteur Gaspar Noé, had its certificate changed three weeks after its initial release.

After its premiere at the Cannes film festival, Love was originally awarded a 16 certificate, but an appeal to the administrative court in Paris saw it raised to an 18 earlier this week.

As it turns out, the movie will now be playing in far fewer Parisian theaters than previously expected. Love, an erotic 3D melodrama that was an Official Selection in Cannes, has been at the heart of a controversy over its age rating for the past few weeks. The situation has… »

From Shane Ryan, creator of the Amateur Porn Star Killer Trilogy, Snuff will bring to you the finest faux rape and murder scenes from around the globe.

Paz de la Huerta sues director of sex horror Nurse 3D for ruining her career

21 July 2015 9:20 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Boardwalk Empire actor claims she made up to $2m a year prior to the release of $10m film but has struggled since

The actor Paz de la Huerta, best known for Gaspar Noé’s “psychedelic melodrama” Enter the Void and the TV series Boardwalk Empire, is suing the makers of trashy horror film Nurse 3D for $55m, claiming the 2014 box office turkey destroyed her career, according to TMZ.

De la Huerta played a murderous nurse who delights in killing off cheating men in the low budget sexploitation flick. The $10m film achieved just a limited release in cinemas, earning only $5,000, and was swiftly released via video on demand. Now its star claims the film ruined her Hollywood career, claiming she made up to $2m a year prior to its release but has struggled since.
