Movies This Week: July 25-31, 2014

25 July 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

 

The Austin Film Society begins a very rare series this Sunday afternoon at the Marchesa called "The Sepia Screen." They'll be spotlighting 35mm "race" films from a special collection at Southern Methodist University from the days when movie theaters were segregated. This weekend, they'll be screening a 1946 short called Vanities, a 1946 feature called Dirty Gertie From Harlem U.S.A. and 1949's feature Souls Of Sin. Elizabeth's preview has details plus some insights on the series from Afs programmer Lars Nilsen.

On Tuesday evening, Afs is hosting Two Step, a locally-shot SXSW 2014 favorite (Don's review). Director Alex R. Johnson and composer Andrew Kenny (The Wooden Birds, The American Analog Set) will be in attendance for a Q&A. The current Afs Essential Cinema series is closing out on Thursday evening with Liv and Ingmar. After filling the Marchesa's screen over the last few weeks with some of their greatest collaborations, »

The Toronto Film Festival will again play host to scores of Oscar hopefuls

25 July 2014 10:34 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

With today’s announcement that David Dobkin’s film The Judge will open the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival, I figured that it was a good time to talk about the Tiff lineup. That Robert Downey Jr. vehicle will seek to become an awards player, and it’s not alone. Each year, scores of titles descend on Toronto in order to distinguish themselves to Academy members and various precursor voters everywhere. The festival has a solid history of producing Oscar nominees, though the big time competition this year from the New York Film Festival will certainly shine a light on just how essential a stop this fest still is. For now though, it’s a big one, and well worth a bit of discussion. As mentioned above, the opening film is The Judge, which could be a Best Actor player for Downey Jr. or perhaps even a Best Picture contender if it’s better than expected. »

A Little Chaos unfolds at 2014 Tiff Galas and Special Presentations

23 July 2014 4:26 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Set to close the 39th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival is the sophomore directorial effort of Alan Rickman who is best known for being the source of villainy in Die Hard (1988) and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991).  “It is a great privilege for A Little Chaos to have its world premiere in Toronto and for it to be given the Festival’s closing night Gala, but it is also a very personal pleasure,” stated Rickman. “I have filmed in the city, visited often, and some of my closest friends live there. It will be like coming home.”

The historical drama stars Kate Winslet as Sabine De Barra an unconventional landscaper who is tasked with designing one of the fountains at The Palace of Versailles while contending with uncooperative weather, rivalries at the court of Louis Xiv and her own personal demons.  Performing alongside Winslet are Stanley Tucci, Alan Rickman and Matthias Schoenaerts. »

Video: Jessica Chastain, Colin Farrell play with fire in 'Miss Julie'

23 July 2014 8:54 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The following clip is Nsfw, assuming you’re a repressed 19th-century manservant.

If you’re not: Here’s a first look at Liv Ullmann’s Miss Julie, a period piece based on the 1888 Strindberg play of the same name. Jessica Chastain plays the titular character, the feisty daughter of a count; Colin Farrell plays Jean, the valet who’s loved Julie since she was a girl. (“Loved,” here, means he’s had “nasty thoughts” about her since childhood.) Naturally, things get complicated when the two become entangled—more along the lines of Quills than Downton Abbey, if this slow-burning international trailer is any indication. »

Colin Farrell And Jessica Chastain Play Sexy Mind Games In First Miss Julie Trailer

23 July 2014 7:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Now that its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff) has been locked in, we have a first trailer for Liv Ullmann’s Miss Julie, an 1880s-set erotic thriller about the power struggle between an aristocratic woman and her father’s sexually frustrated valet. With the sublime Jessica Chastain and Colin Farrell leading the cast, which also includes Samantha Morton, this is going to be one to watch.

An adaptation of the famed play by August Strindberg, Miss Julie looks familiar but still extremely promising in terms of its acting, visual appearance and framing. Ullmann (Sofie, Faithless) may be just the director to reintroduce this seminal play to a new audience, and Farrell and Chastain certainly seem like suitable leads for the job. Morton, too, should provide ample dramatic pathos in her key supporting role.

The trailer is filled with tantalizing glimpses at scenes and some very steamy dialogue, »

The Definitive Foreign Language Horror Films: 30-21

22 July 2014 5:53 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

What is it about foreign horror films that makes them more interesting than so many English language horror films? You would have to think that the language barrier makes it more terrifying; people screaming is already difficult, but speaking a language you don’t understand can only make it worse. So, why are the remakes typically so bad? On this portion of the list, we are treated to a few of the more upsetting films in the canon – one movie I wouldn’t wish for anyone to see, a few that blazed the trail for many more, and one that I would elevate above the horror genre into its own little super-genre.

English Title: A Tale of Two Sisters

Directed by: Kim Ji-woon

Another excellent Korean horror film America had to remake to lesser results. 2003′s A Tale of Two Sisters is just one of many film adaptations of the folktale, »

First Look: Toronto Best Actress Candidate Jessica Chastain Stars in Liv Ullmann's 'Miss Julie' (Trailer)

22 July 2014 1:25 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Now that the dust is settling around the recent flurry of fall film festival announcements, one promising entry is a Toronto world premiere: Norwegian actress-writer-director Liv Ullmann's adaptation of Swedish playwright August Strindberg’s 1888 classic "Miss Julie." The film starring Jessica Chastain ("Zero Dark Thirty"), Colin Farrell ("Saving Mr. Banks") and Samantha Morton ("A.I.") seeks a North American distributor. Whether it would make it into this year's Oscar race depends on how it plays in Toronto. French international sales agency Wild Bunch is handling sales.  Chastain has been in-demand, earning back-to-back Oscar nominations for supporting actress for "The Help" in 2012 and Best Actress in Kathryn Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty" in 2013. The Weinstein Company plans an awards push for the single-film version of "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby" which debuted as two films »

Tiff 2014: Complete 2014 Toronto Film Festival Lineup Announced

22 July 2014 7:32 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This morning the first wave of the 2014 Toronto Film Festival lineup was announced and so far it's an impressive list of films including films from Noah Baumbach, Mike Leigh, David Gordon Green, Jason Reitman, Bennett Miller, David Cronenberg, Antoine Fuqua, Edward Zwick, Mikael Roskam, David Dobkin and many others. One surprising detail is there was no announcement of an opening film so along with everything below there is still at least one biggie on the way, and while they say it has nothing to do with their "premiere" mandate, I wouldn't be surprised if it might be Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Birdman and they're waiting to see if it will be the North American premiere. Then again, could Birdman open both Toronto and Venicec But what else could it bec Maybe David Ayer's Furyc No chance for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar... or is therec Probably the films announced so far »

Afs Essential Cinema Preview: Liv Ullmann and Ingmar Bergman, Painfully Connected

30 June 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

The next Austin Film Society Essential Cinema Series, "Liv and Ingmar," will run on Thursdays at 7:30 pm from July 3-31 at the Marchesa. The following column from programmer Chale Nafus provides some context for the films.

Marlene Dietrich and Josef von Sternberg, John Wayne and John Ford, Ingrid Bergman and Roberto Rossellini, Robert DeNiro and Martin Scorsese, Ethan Hawke and Richard Linklater. Throughout film history there have been directors who frequently work with one particular actor through whom they can realize their cinematic dreams. Familiarity with an actor's face, body, voice, mannerisms and psychological depths can provide a director a preview of how a movie might look and sound even before the cameras roll.

Such was the 12-year relationship between Norwegian actress Liv Ullmann and Swedish writer/director Ingmar Bergman. Together they made eight feature films and one television miniseries, beginning with Persona (1966) and ending with Autumn Sonata (1978). They »

First Poster and Pictures for 'Miss Julie' Starring Jessica Chastain and Colin Farrell

29 May 2014 8:57 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Allocine has premiered the first poster for Liv Ullmann's Miss Julie starring Jessica Chastain, Colin Farrell and Samantha Morton. Based on the play by August Strindberg, the film is set in 1874 at a count's estate in Sweden, following a woman (Chastain) trying to escape an existence cramped by social mores who is suddenly drawn to a senior servant (Farrell). The film doesn't yet have a domestic distributor and it would make sense to predict it will play heavily in the fall film festival circuit, most likely at both Toronto and Venice, though IMDb does list a September 12 release for the film in Norway. I do have Chastain listed on the Best Actress board for the film, though pretty far down the line as I suspect she'll be a much stronger draw for her work in J.C. Chandor's and/or Ned Benson's Eleanor Rigby. Check out the pics and poster below. »
