Should actors be allowed to omit their age from IMDb?

30 September 2016 7:32 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The actor Patrick Kennedy, whose work includes Boardwalk Empire and Atonement, talks about the new California law and why stars deserve to retain their mystique

Actors, like Donald Trump, prefer to remain “semi-exact” when it comes to the facts. Perception is our domain, not to be undermined by actuality. A fact like an actor’s date of birth stands in the way of our dreams at some point in all our working lives – we’re no different from anyone else in this – but it’s notoriously true that actors contend with age in unequal ways. Without a doubt, since I’ve left my twenties the roles have become more interesting. Maybe that’s just art reflecting life. Young men are never as interesting as they think they are. Demetrius is no match for Helena, Lysander for Hermia, nor that dolt Romeo for the wry and cogent Juliet.

Movie Review – London Has Fallen (2016)

4 March 2016 5:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

London Has Fallen, 2016

Directed by Babak Najafi.

Starring Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett, Radha Mitchell, Patrick Kennedy, Robert Forster, Melissa Leo, Charlotte Riley, Shivani Ghai, Mehdi Dehbi, Waleed Zuaiter, Alon Aboutboul, Jackie Earle Haley, and Michael Wildman.

Synopsis:

In London for the Prime Minister’s funeral, Mike Banning discovers a plot to assassinate all the attending world leaders.

It’s easy to see why London Has Fallen is quickly drawing passionate ire from many film critics and moviegoers around the world; it is unabashedly patriotic ‘America, fuck yeah’ propaganda, but to embrace the movie as a serious political statement is absurd. Is there really no room left for a dumb action movie anymore? Has political correctness really run that rampant, to the point where a movie depicting a Middle Eastern Isis reminiscent villain acting out as a terrorist is offensive? Even when that movie is really nothing »
