The Enduring Exhaustion of ‘Michael Clayton’

Looking back on this still-young century makes clear that 2007 was a major time for cinematic happenings — and, on the basis of this retrospective, one we’re not quite through with ten years on. One’s mind might quickly flash to a few big titles that will be represented, but it is the plurality of both festival and theatrical premieres that truly surprises: late works from old masters, debuts from filmmakers who’ve since become some of our most-respected artists, and mid-career turning points that didn’t necessarily announce themselves as such at the time. Join us as an assembled team, many of whom were coming of age that year, takes on their favorites.

One of the most powerful states explored in cinema is the state of exhaustion. Being tired. Tired of work. Tired of bad choices. Tired of life. In every sigh, glance and line read does George Clooney convey this in Michael Clayton.

Math Nerds Will Love These New Infinity War Fan Posters

Math Nerds Will Love These New Infinity War Fan Posters
Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War is shaping up to be one of next year's most highly-anticipated movies, and last week, a report claimed that fans heading to theaters to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi will also get to see the first Avengers: Infinity War trailer. One super fan awaiting this trailer is digital artist BossLogic, who spent part of his holiday weekend creating new posters for Avengers: Infinity War, which by no means are official posters sanctioned by Marvel Studios. But they are unique and creative. They all take a unique, math-based approached at the title in quite the creative way.

For those of you who may not be so mathematically-inclined, there is an actual symbol for infinity, which is essentially a sideways 8, so BossLogic decided to have some fun by integrating the infinity symbol into the Infinity War title, while using the six Infinity Stones that Thanos (Josh Brolin

Is Infinity War Bringing Back Hela and the Ancient One?

Is Infinity War Bringing Back Hela and the Ancient One?
It looks like a couple of major characters may be returning for Avengers: Infinity War. The massive Marvel event movie looks to be the culmination of everything that has happened in the Marvel Cinematic Universe up to this point. That being the case, pretty much every major character is going to show up, if only briefly. And, if Mark Ruffalo is to be believed, that may even extend to quite recent and presumably dead characters.

During a recent interview on Michael Rapaport's I am Rapaport podcast, the man responsible for bringing Hulk to life was asked which actors left "the best impression" on him after having worked with them. He then proceeded to name drop both Cate Blanchett, whom he worked with on Thor: Ragnarok and, more surprisingly, Tilda Swinton, who portrayed The Ancient One in Doctor Strange. That's of particular note because, as far as we can tell,

Mark Ruffalo Reveals Two More Characters For Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War and its as-yet-untitled sequel, Avengers 4, are set to be jam-packed affairs with every McU hero under the sun involved, but they’re still going to find room for numerous supporting characters as well. Everyone from popular picks like Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts to minor players like Cindy from Spider-Man: Homecoming are said to be included and now, a new interview with Mark Ruffalo may have confirmed a few more additions to the party.

While chatting on Michael Rapaport’s podcast I Am Rapaport, Ruffalo was asked to name some of the actors he’s worked with that he was most in awe of. A couple of his suggestions were Tilda Swinton and Cate Blanchett, whom he revealed he had “just worked with.” Considering that Ruffalo’s last projects were the two Avengers movies, which were filmed back-to-back, it’s not hard to connect the dots and

(It hits theaters on November 24th.)

Manifesto review – Cate Blanchett is astonishing in bravura character study

Blanchett plays 13 characters performing screeds by the likes of Marx and Debord in a hypnotically fascinating exploration of philosophy

There is a hypnotic fascination to this work by artist and film-maker Julian Rosefeldt, one of the few commercial films that explores the boundaries between cinema and installation, or cinema and video art. It owes this relative prominence to the presence of Cate Blanchett, who may be rivalling Tilda Swinton as Hollywood’s experimentalist and patron-muse.

Beauty vs Beast: The Bigger Boys

Jason from Mnpp here, ready to pop some peach champagne for the release of Luca Guadagnino's Call Me By Your Name, which finally hits theaters in New York and La on Friday. The thing is, although I personally have already seen the film six times (if you've been to Mnpp at any point in the past three months you're more than aware of my obsession but if you missed my first take on the movie out of Nyff it's one of the most meaningful pieces of writing I've ever done, says me), it seems that some of you have not seen the film six times yet. Since it's not in theaters yet, and all. So I probably can't devote this week's "Beauty vs Beast" to it then!

So we'll do the next best and look back at Luca's last movie, A Bigger Splash. When Abs came out we polled

Tough Mother and Rookies Make Up Supporting Actress Oscar Race

Tough Mother and Rookies Make Up Supporting Actress Oscar Race
Motherhood is a common theme for supporting actresses this year, from Emmy winners Laurie Metcalf and Allison Janney parenting lead actress potentials Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie in “Lady Bird” and “I, Tonya,” respectively. Then there’s Mary J. Blige’s tough matriarch in “Mudbound,” a commanding performance by the singer. Matriarch Catherine Keener is not to be trusted in “Get Out” while Holly Hunter is loving parent to a sick daughter in “The Big Sick.” And there’s a mother of a different kind with Melissa Leo in “Novitiate,” playing a Mother Reverend grappling with change. Other potential nominees include previous winner Octavia Spencer, standing out in the strong ensemble of “The Shape of Water,” previous nominee Kristen Scott Thomas bringing grace to the wife of Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hour,” and newcomer Hong Chau, stealing scenes as a political activist in “Downsizing.” Buzz is also high on Lesley Manville, though “[link

Luca Guadagnino Champions Suspiria As A Labor Of Love, But It’s Definitely Not A Remake

You’d have to cast your mind back to March of 2017 to remember the moment when Luca Guadagnino announced that filming had wrapped on Suspiria, a modern reinvention of Dario Argento’s Italian slasher. So what gives?

As the horror flick continues to simmer on the brink of release, Guadagnino spoke to Criterion (via Bloody Disgusting) about Suspiria‘s prolonged spell in post, and why he considers it to be a “very special film.” And though it was originally slated to arrive in 2017, judging by this latest status report – one in which the Italian filmmaker reveals that he still has three months to wrap things up – Suspiria may slip into 2018 after all.

I have three months until I finish it. It’s a very special film, and I’m proud of it. I wonder all the time how people will react to it, being that it is based on a masterpiece.
