Film Review: ‘Therapy for a Vampire’

10 June 2016 11:27 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Back before “The Sopranos” — well, actually, just as “The Sopranos” was midway through its first season — a movie comedy came out that presented the idea of a gangster who goes to see a psychiatrist as just about the most nutty, screw-loose hi-larious concept in the world. Even after six seasons of “The Sopranos,” the notion behind the Robert De Niro/Billy Crystal comedy “Analyze This” still sounds kind of funny, and it’s no trick to apply the same basic joke to certain other…professions. A gladiator seeing a psychiatrist. A superhero seeing a psychiatrist. Donald Trump seeing a psychiatrist. (Well, okay, there are limits to plausibility.) So how about a vampire seeing a psychiatrist — or, better yet, a vampire going to see the Op (original psychiatrist): the man himself, Sigmund Freud? Are you laughing yet? Or, if you’re one of the few people who will go to the new Austrian movie “Therapy for a Vampire,” are you spitting up the comedy equivalent of a blood clot?

We’re in Vienna in 1932, and the monster in question who seeks out Freud’s help is Count Geza von Közsnöm, a Romanian bloodsucker who is bored, bored, bored with his vampire wife, Elsa (Jeanette Hain), because the two have been married for, like, centuries. Can anyone relate? (Nudge, nudge.) Count Geza is played by Tobias Moretti, who in profile does look a bit like Bela Lugosi, but mostly he resembles a debauched Mike Wallace. He’s a very civilized and depressed aristocrat, who has become so jaded by his lifestyle that he has an assistant go out and draw blood from victims, which he then guzzles out of a flask. Dr. Freud (Karl Fischer) has no idea that he’s treating an undead neurotic, and therapy, as it turns out, doesn’t do the count much good. He’s too much in thrall to his lost love from hundreds of years ago, who he thinks has been reincarnated in Lucy (Cornelia Ivancan), a bohemian model who’s having relationship issues. Her artist boyfriend, Viktor (Dominic Oley), insists on painting her as a blonde — and, indeed, seems to be getting ready to go full “Vertigo” on her.

If a diagram were the same thing as a script, then “Therapy for a Vampire” might be a smashingly silly lark. But as written and directed by Daniel Ruehl, the film is a blueprint of mild anemic kitsch. It’s an undead comedy without the blood of experience coursing through its veins. The count and his wife, who you might say are at each other’s throats, each pair off with one half of the young couple. Elsa, whose undead style consists of wearing a Louise Brooks bob (though it looks more like a Louise Brooks wig purchased in a costume shop), latches onto Viktor and insists that he paint her portrait so that she can see what she looks like. (Mirrors weren’t doing the trick.) And the count woos Lucy with that whole “Come and be a creature of the night! You will live forever!” routine. The best thing in the movie is Cornelia Ivancan. She’s got a real bloom — a glow of misbehavior. No one will let Lucy just be who she is (Viktor wants to change her hair color, the count wants to change her mortality), and “Therapy for a Vampire,” to the extent that it has a theme, is a feminist anthem. If only it weren’t such a cheesy, thinly written, badly lit one.

The notion of an old vampire couple coping with the anomie of the ages owes an obvious debt to Jim Jarmusch’s “Only Lovers Left Alive” (2014), which was an infinitely more textured — and funnier — movie. The way this all plays out in “Therapy for a Vampire” brings it closer to being a bloodsucker version of “Escape (The Piña Colada Song).” Call it “The Plasma Colada Song.”

Morley Safer Stepping Down From ’60 Minutes’ After 46 Years

11 May 2016 1:05 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Morley Safer, the longest-serving correspondent on “60 Minutes,” will step down this week from the CBS newsmagazine, the company’s CBS News unit announced Wednesday, and will be celebrated this coming Sunday with an hour-long primetime special celebrating his career.

Safer joined the program in 1970, just two years after it launched. His tenure extends to the era of Don Hewitt, the show’s creator, and Mike Wallace, who made “60 Minutes” famous with his aggressive investigative efforts. Safer’s first season as a regular correspondent started with a story about the training of U.S. Sky Marshals. His last report – his 919th –  was a profile of Danish Architect Bjarke Ingels, and was broadcast in March. In all, Safer will have spent 46 seasons with the newsmagazine, and more years than that with CBS News overall.

“After more than 50 years of broadcasting on CBS News and ’60 Minutes,’ I have decided to retire. It’s been a wonderful run, »

Philip Scheffler, Senior Producer at ’60 Minutes,’ Dies at 85

7 April 2016 5:35 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Philip Scheffler, whose five-decade career included a long stint as lieutenant to “60 Minutes” creator Don Hewitt, died at New York Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center in Manhattan on Thursday. He was 85.

Beginning in 1980, when he was named senior producer of the news magazine, Scheffler was involved in producing every “60 Minutes” report until he retired in 2003. (He also served as executive editor for several years.)

Before being named to this top-level producing post, Scheffler produced “60 Minutes” segments for Mike Wallace, Morley Safer, Harry Reasoner and Dan Rather for nine years. Scheffler was the even-tempered fellow who had to play diplomat among the big egos in the screening room.

Born in New York, Scheffler was hired by Hewitt in 1951 as a copy boy on CBS’ “Douglas Edwards With the News,” the first network TV news program, which Hewitt produced and directed. In 1951 Scheffler also became the news show’s first street reporter. »

'Harry Potter' Fans Create Alan Rickman Memorial at Platform 9 3/4, Universal Studios

15 January 2016 6:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Moviegoers have been mourning the sudden loss of Alan Rickman, who died on Thursday at age 69 after a private battle with cancer. While the beloved actor was known for numerous roles throughout his long and varied career, his turn as Professor Severus Snape in the "Harry Potter" saga will always remain one of his most iconic, and fans of the series are remembering him in their own unique way.

Potterheads have created several makeshift memorials to Rickman over the past 24 hours, including one at Platform 9 3/4 at Kings Cross Station in London, the site where students boarded the Hogwarts Express in the books and films. Fans have left flowers (a lot of lilies, naturally), cards, handmade signs, and photographs, and even a couple green scarves to represent Slytherin House, which Snape headed in the series.

Thank you to the Platform 9 3/4 shop for letting us do a tribute. #AlanRickman @WarnerBrosUK @jk_rowling pic. »
