TV Review: Netflix’s ‘Easy’

22 September 2016 5:39 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

From writer, director, and executive producer Joe Swanberg comes “Easy,” Netflix’s latest original series. “Easy” is an eight-episode collection of vignettes depicting sexual or romantic relationships in Chicago. The show is less about story than atmosphere; each episode feels like a living portrait, except instead of the characters as subjects, “Easy” is more invested in exposing the invisible relationship dynamic between the two.

Swanberg’s cinematic style has a place in modern film history; his 2005 debut “Kissing on the Mouth” was one of the first films to be called “mumblecore,” a sub-genre of indie filmmaking that emphasized natural conversation and low-budget production values, including, at the time, nonprofessional actors. But like everything that was hip in 2005, the genre has now become part of the establishment in its own way. The style of mumblecore inspired a whole crop of intimate television shows, and indeed, Swanberg’s fellow mumblecore directors Mark and Jay Duplass have become fixtures of »

Fall Horror Movie Preview: A Definitive Guide to the Season's Macabre Offerings

22 September 2016 5:23 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

2Nd Update (9/23, 3:23 Pdt): An earlier version of this article listed Elle Evans as the actress who plays the title role in The Love Witch. That distinction in fact goes to Samantha Robinson. We regret the error. Update (9/22, 11:37 Pm Pdt): The same day this article was published, Paramount pushed back the release date for Rings from October 28 to February 3, 2017. Original Article: Fall has traditionally been viewed as the prime time of year for the horror film, but this summer was actually a pretty good one for the genre, with movies like The Conjuring 2, Lights Out, and the surprise smash Don't Breathe doing gangbusters business in the midst of blockbuster season. But the year's not over yet! With September in full swing, there are a number of worthwhile (and, yes, questionable) titles looming on the release calendar over the next three months. Below, you can find a rundown of 12 upcoming horror films, »

‘Easy’ Review: Grading Every Episode of Joe Swanberg’s Profound New Netflix Series

22 September 2016 1:45 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Always with a soft touch for the nuances of love in its many forms, Joe Swanberg’s filmmaking career is dotted with contemplative explorations of how individuals find happiness through each other. So it makes sense his first foray into serialized television — as a creator, writer and director of all episodes — combines the best of both worlds, films and love, all told within his favorite city. From a lovingly-captured Chicago, “Easy” functions as a series of short films, 25-30 minutes apiece, with each episode tracking a new couple’s singular journey.

A favorite among the independent film community, Swanberg has gathered a consummate group of actors with various degrees of experience to give life to each of his stories. Orlando Bloom and Malin Akerman, for instance, only appear in one episode, while Aya Cash, Dave Franco, Michael Chernus and a few others pop up a few times. Yet very little »

7 Indie Filmmakers Making Must-See TV This Fall

9 September 2016 11:13 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Ava DuVernay, “Queen Sugar

The acclaimed “Selma” and “Middle of Nowhere” director is a storyteller first, and what better medium to delve deep into a story than television? In her first foray on the small screen, DuVernay allied herself with Oprah’s Own network for “Queen Sugar,” in which she examines the lives of the Bordelon siblings in Louisiana after the passing of their father who leaves them a sugarcane farm.

DuVernay has always been a champion of being the change she wants to see, and her work on “Queen Sugar” is no different. Beginning with adapting a novel from a woman of color, about black siblings, DuVernay also made a point to hire an all-female roster of directors for every episode. She even directed two herself, and the pilot shows that the same appreciation for a gorgeous, almost dreamy palette that “Selma” had, despite some rough subject matter. While »

Ouija: Origins of Evil Trailer #2 Enters the Spirit World

8 September 2016 4:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Every Halloween a movie studio manages to capitalize on audiences wanting to go see a horror movie to go along with the theme of the holiday. This year, it is once again Blumhouse with a prequel to their 2014 horror flick Ouija. With the release date drawing near, Universal Pictures has just released the second full-length trailer for Ouija: Origins of Evil.

The trailer made its way onto YouTube on Thursday and if you weren't already sold on the movie, this trailer probably won't change your mind. On the flip side, if you were already sold on the idea of another movie in the Ouija universe, this latest trailer probably knocked your socks off. The movie takes place in 1967, decades before the events of the first Ouija and centers around a mom and her two daughters who pick up an Ouija board to help scam clients for their phony seance business. »

17 (!) New Netflix Shows to Binge Watch in September 2016, And the Best Episodes of Each

1 September 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: Typically, we recommend six or seven series newly available on Netflix in the coming month, but this September is chock full of choices — in part because fall shows are starting up again and networks want to make sure fans are caught up on prior seasons. So, this month, we’ve selected 17 high-priority choices and have highlighted our favorites. Choose for yourself, or settle in for the ultimate binge.]

1. “Easy” Season 1 (available September 22)

Why Should I Watch It? Orlando Bloom, Malin Akerman, Jake Johnson, Marc Maron, Dave Franco, Hannibal Buress, Emily Ratajkowski, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Aya Cash and Elizabeth Reaser star in this new eight-episode anthology series, but even that kind of star power can’t compete with a brilliant creator. Good thing “Easy” springs from the mind of indie favorite Joe Swanberg. The “Uncle Kent” and “Drinking Buddies” writer-director is taking on his first TV series with a comfortable setting — Chicago — and subject — “love, sex, technology and culture.” We can’t wait.

Best Episode: Every episode Aya Cash appears in will be the best, so hopefully she’s in every single one.

2. “Call the Midwife” Season 5 (available September 19)

Why Should I Watch It? I know, I know. We badger you about this every year, »
