Call Me By Your Name review: A Bigger Splash director makes waves with superb gay romance

5 hours ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Luca Guadagnino’s masterful coming-of-age tale of an Italian fling between visiting academic Armie Hammer and professor’s son Timothée Chalamet is a major addition to the queer canon

Let’s bite right into the sweetest part of the fruit while it’s ripe. There’s a scene near the end of Luca Guadagnino’s adaptation of André Aciman’s novel Call Me By Your Name between Michael Stuhlbarg and Timothée Chalamet that is, I feel confident in saying, one of the best exchanges between father and son in the history of cinema. We’ll all be quoting from it for the rest of our lives.

For many it will be a moment of wish fulfilment, and that may go doubly for queer people whose parents tragically reject them for their nature. The scene is touching and triumphant, but it wouldn’t work on an island. It comes after a build-up, »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Call Me by Your Name’

8 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As numerous are the ways in which Luca Guadagnino’s latest (and most personal) film, “Call Me by Your Name,” advances the canon of gay cinema, none impresses more than the fact that it’s not necessarily a gay movie at all. Rather, the “I Am Love” director’s ravishingly sensual new film — adapted from André Aciman’s equally vivid, 1983-set coming-out/coming-of-age novel — is above all a story of first love, one that transcends the same-sex dynamic of its central couple, much as “Moonlight” so recently did.

Acquired by Sony Pictures Classics shortly before its Sundance premiere, this Proustian account of an Italo-American 17-year-old’s transformative summer may not be as commercial as that film, but it ought to be a word-of-mouth art-house hit all the same — especially when talk turns to what teenage Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet) and American summer guest Oliver (Armie Hammer) do with a ripe peach. »

Lrm's 10 Most Anticipated Sundance Film Festival Premieres

17 January 2017 10:15 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Later this week, Lrm will be attending this year’s Sundance Film Festival. While the festival tends to be a mixed bag of indie films, some will be picked up for distribution by studios and turned into mainstream hits, others will flounder and be lucky to get a VOD release. Even so, there’s no denying that Sundance is the real beginning of the year for most movie lovers as we’ll be talking about the movies below for the next 12 months.

Last year alone, Sundance held the premieres for The Birth of a Nation, Manchester by the Sea, Captain Fantastic, Love and Friendship, The Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Sing Street and many more films, some that appeared on The Weekend Warrior’s year-end Top 25. One or two of those might even receive Oscar nominations when they’re announced next week on January 24.

‘Fargo’ Chapter 3: Ewan McGregor and Carrie Coon on Dual Roles, the Accent and Those Character Names

12 January 2017 5:35 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

While “Fargo” Chapter 3 will blow “kisses” to past installments, expect a totally new story when Noah Hawley’s Coen-inspired series returns in April.

Stars Ewan McGregor, Carrie Coon, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, David Thewlis and Michael Stuhlbarg have only been shooting the third installment of FX’s Emmy-winning limited series for a week, but they, along with executive producer Warren Littlefield, still took the time to come by the TCA Winter Press Tour and reveal a little bit of information about what we can expect from this newest iteration.

Set in 2010, the show promises to take on issues like social media in the modern world, as Littlefield explained. (Hawley was scheduled to appear on the panel, but bowed out due to illness.) “Carrie has a scene where she’s on a plane and she looks around and everyone has their heads down,” he said. “No one’s talking, no one’s communicating. »

‘Fargo’: 7 Things We Learned About Season 3 From TCA Panel

12 January 2017 4:57 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Minnesota accents are hard, if you’re from Scotland. 2010 feels like a long time ago. Zero degrees is shorts weather, if you’re from Calgary. And Noah Hawley has outdone himself with the character names for season three of “Fargo.”

These are among the insights shared by “Fargo” stars Ewan McGregor, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Carrie Coon, David Thewlis, Michael Stuhlbarg and exec producer Warren Littlefield on Thursday during the Television Critics Association press tour panel on the series that began production in the Calgary area earlier this month. (Hawley was scheduled to participate but bowed out because he was under the weather.)

Among the highlights:

McGregor plays two primary characters, brothers Emmit and Ray Stussy, who are not twins and come from different backgrounds. And yes, he’s speaking like a Minnesotan, not his natural Scottish brogue. “I’m doing the ‘Fargo’-y accent,” he said, working hard with a dialect coach. “It »

Ewan McGregor on Fargo-y Dialect: 'It's the Hardest Accent I've Ever Done'

12 January 2017 4:10 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

As if playing a dual role in Fargo Season 3 wasn’t enough of a challenge, Ewan McGregor has to adopt two slightly different Minnesota twangs. And don’tcha know he’s having a bit of a tough time.

“It’s very, very difficult,” the Scottish actor told reporters Thursday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, where he appeared alongside cast members Carrie Coon, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, David Thewlis and Michael Stuhlbarg. “It’s a very strange accent to lock into. I don’t know if it’s harder or not as a non-American. I certainly wish I was »

Doug Jones reveals plot details for Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water

10 January 2017 3:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Guillermo del Toro currently in post-production on his next film The Shape of Water, his frequent collaborator Doug Jones has been chatting to Collider about the project, during which he revealed a few plot details for the fantasy adventure, which has been described as “an other-worldly story set against the backdrop of Cold War era America”.

“It’s a 1963 drama—it’s not a sci-fi [film], it’s not a genre film, but I am a creature in it,” said Jones. “I’m a fish man that’s kind of a one-off. I’m an enigma, nobody knows where I came from; I’m the last of my species so I’m like a natural anomaly. And I’m being studied and tested in a U.S. government facility in 1963, so the Russian Cold War is on, the race for space is on, so there’s all that backdrop and that undercurrent. »

What’s the Most Exciting Movie of 2017 That No One’s Talking About? — IndieWire Critics Survey

9 January 2017 9:40 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: Here we are again, staring down the barrel of another year at the movies, one sure to be filled with its fair share of discoveries, disappointments, and trucks that are powered by monsters. Many of our most anticipated new films can be seen coming a mile away, but what’s the most exciting movie of 2017 that no one is talking about?

Angie Han (@ajhan), Slashfilm.com

I haven’t seen much talk about “The Glass Castle,” Lionsgate’s upcoming adaptation of Jeannette Walls’ memoir, maybe because it doesn’t have an actual release date yet. But I’ve been interested in the project since it was first announced, »
