How ‘The People v. O.J. Simpson’ Changed Everything for Breakout Star Sterling K. Brown

15 August 2016 2:40 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

While filming Episode 9 of “The People vs. O.J. Simpson,” Sterling K. Brown prepared at length for the explosive courtroom scene as assistant prosecutor Christopher Darden, when he releases pent-up rage against defense attorney Johnny Cochran (Courtney P. Vance). Brown knew emotion and sentiment would be high; he had to be on top of it to let it go.

He went to set early, when it was quiet and dark, and did a strong rehearsal. The lights were set. Director Anthony Hemingway called “Action!”

And Brown forgot all his lines. For three takes.

Hemingway called ‘cut’ and gave the actor a few minutes to go over the lines. He took some deep breaths, came back, and nailed it. “I just needed to get over that initial hiccup,” he said. “Once I was able to marry the emotion with the words, it went well, it just took a minute.”

The Campaign to Revive Early Films from Christine Vachon and Todd Haynes

28 June 2016 10:14 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Led by Ifp founder Sandra Schulberg, who serves as its president, the nonprofit IndieCollect is working to conserve independent cinema. In just two years, the company has rescued and archived more than 3,500 film negatives, according to Schulberg, the president of IndieCollect. IndieCollect recently located the master picture and sound elements for eight of the shorts Vachon and Haynes produced in the ’80s and ’90s with Barry Ellsworth under their non-profit Apparatus banner. Apparatus backed a number of other directors, including Suzan-Lori Parks, Mary Hestand, Susan Delson, Brooke Dammkoehler, Larry Carty, and Evan Dunsky.

Help Restore Early Films from Todd Haynes, Christine Vachon, and Others

23 June 2016 1:17 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

For as beloved as his features may be, Todd Haynes boasts a repertoire of short films no less deserving of attention — attention they might receive if they were more readily accessible. One has long been able to find Superstar and Dottie Gets Spanked with little effort, but some pieces were only recently discovered — e.g. The Suicide, found on Criterion’s Safe release; in terms of emotional effect, it makes Carol feel like an episode of Night Court — or have yet to be given a proper restoration.

Which brings us to (drum roll) a Kickstarter campaign to extensively restore and properly release eight shorts from Apparatus, a now-defunct creative house founded by Haynes and longtime creative partner Christine Vachon. Although the former’s work is not immediately on display therein, part of the $30,000 effort is to locate his 1985 Assassins: A Film Concerning Rimbaud, “in which he depicts the poet as »

‘Father Comes Home From the Wars’ La Theater Review: Suzan-Lori Parks’ Entertaining New Masterpiece

17 April 2016 11:53 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Suzan-Lori Parks’ new drama, “Father Comes Home From the Wars (Parts 1, 2 & 3),” which opened Sunday at L.A.’s Mark Taper Forum and plays through May 15, is remarkable for being both serious and seriously entertaining. It’s an ambitious, nearly three-hour production that breaks new ground in depicting the now-familiar era of American slavery. First, the play explores some of the complicated moral dilemmas faced by the slaves themselves, giving them an agency and a culpability that is far too often bypassed. And second, it frames the conflict not as some stilted, hyper-serious period piece — but as a »
