Interview with Paolo Virzì about Human Capital

18 April 2014 10:36 AM, PDT | eyeforfilm.co.uk | See recent eyeforfilm.co.uk news »

Paolo Virzi on Human Capital: "Money knows no borders."

When I spoke with Paolo Virzì the day before the Tribeca Film Festival Us premiere of his film Human Capital (Il Capitale Umano) we discussed Alexander Payne with a touch of Como, George Clooney's clothes in The Descendants, François Truffaut's La Peau Douce, guilt, his choice of music from Amy Winehouse to Vivaldi and the impact a sweet and sour Frank Sinatra Christmas rendition can have.

Valeria Bruni Tedeschi as Carla and Valeria Golino as Roberta give brilliant performances entangled in the web of what is perhaps the most revolting selection of male characters in a film I have seen at least this year. Fabrizio Gifuni and Fabrizio Bentivoglio play two of the men in their lives.

Ranking The ’27 Club’ Based On Musical Talent

17 April 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Wikipedia

It is bizarre to think that enough talented musicians have died at the tender age of 27 to warrant an entire ‘club’, or even enable a list of this nature, but oddly they have. In 2011 the world was shaken by the passing of Amy Winehouse, which in turn reignited a media and social obsession with the tragic, ever increasing death toll of 27 year-old musical icons. There are only two things connecting each member; age and profession. Yet, we have become so fascinated with the tenuous link, that the ’27 club’ was born.

This list features music legends of all genres, with intriguing and often even compelling back stories. If you disregard music for a short moment, it is incredibly interesting to take ten different human beings, all of which died at an untimely age and simple compare their cases. Some of the deaths have a common theme, while others are completely »

Great British Menu: the best cookery show on TV?

7 April 2014 12:30 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

While the other big food TV shows are beginning to smell a little past their sell-by dates, this quirky offering is a guilty little treat

TV cookery is currently in a bit of a state. The more instructional shows have fallen into a sludgy morass of middle-class lifestyle-lite, where all the meat comes neatly wrapped in brown paper and you're never more than 10 seconds away from an Amy Winehouse instrumental. And, if the past fortnight is any indication, MasterChef has now fully lost the will to live and is content to simply go through the motions until someone takes it out back and shoots it.

But what's this? Great British Menu is back for a new series? That can only be good news. Because, yes, it's stupid. And, yes, it couldn't be any more dimwittedly beholden to a fictional and anachronistic vision of Britain if it was presented by Nigel Farage »

Amy Winehouse Hologram Tour Plans Canceled

1 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Amy Winehouse, the late singer and songwriter, was rumored to be heading out on a world tour in hologram form in the near future. Those plans, however, have been canceled.

Amy Winehouse Hologram Tour Axed

“Our London office was in negotiations with the managers of Amy’s music and image to bring something the world craved — closeness with the beloved artist and her voice,” FilmOn CEO Alki David told TV Mix. “But I have no desire to cause her family any duress, and have withdrawn all offers to the family to make this happen.”

David and FilmOn had been hoping to resurrect the beloved artist in hologram form for the sake of her fans. In life, the “Valerie” singer never managed to go on a world tour.

“The plan is that Amy will finally tour the world after failing to do so when she was alive,” David previously told The Sun. »

Lady Gaga Celebrates 28th Birthday With Macabre "27 Club" Joke

28 March 2014 7:31 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Happy 28th birthday, Lady Gaga! The "G.U.Y." singer's actual b-day is today, but she kicked off celebrations Thursday night in New York City, even cracking a macabre joke about hitting the big 2-8, telling fans, "I made it past 27!" Gaga is well aware of the tragic "27 Club"—the nickname given to the group of performers who died just three years before turning 30—and she made it clear she didn't want to be a "member." The list of "members" includes Amy Winehouse, Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Brian Jones. But in a Z100 radio interview last year, a 26-year-old Gaga made her intentions of growing older very clear. "I »

Creepy Guys & Drake Songs: The Best of 'Broad City' Season One

24 March 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

They're two young women in their mid-twenties, living in New York and struggling to retain their dignity in a world of humiliating hook-ups and wageslave degradation. One of them, Abbi, works at a chic, faux-holistic gym cleaning toilets; the other, Ilana, sleeps through her crappy day job and wants nothing more from life than a dimebag and a date with Lil Wayne. Created by Upright Citizen Brigade alumni Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, Comedy Central's Broad City takes the duo's scrappy Web series and supersizes it (sort of) for »

'Glee' 100th episode party, On the Scene: Stars look back on 100 episodes, reveal whose song they would steal

19 March 2014 4:32 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

When Glee first debuted in 2009, the Fox series incorporated music in a way that hadn’t been seen on television before. Without any big-name stars in the cast, the show was a definite risk. Now, more than five years and 100 episodes later, the risk has more than paid off. With a 3-D film, sold-out concert tours, millions of albums sold, and Billboard records broken, the cast and crew got together in Hollywood on Tuesday night — the same night the show’s 100th episode aired – with plenty to celebrate. EW was on the scene and asked the cast to look back »

'Veronica Mars' and Kickstarter: Is this the future of movie financing?

16 March 2014 10:10 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Now that the big-screen version of Veronica Mars has finally come out, it has turned out to be breezy, pulpy, enjoyable, disposable entertainment (Veronica attempts to solve the murder of a famous rock star in Amy Winehouse makeup…whom she happened to go to high school with!). And now that the film has proved, for the first time, that a movie funded by crowdsourcing (in this case, via Kickstarter) can readily make its money back — and perhaps even do better than that — one could, I suppose, choose to be cynical by viewing the entire phemonenon of the Veronica Mars movie »

“One of the things we didn’t have time to do in the movie is create this whole back story persona for Bonnie DeVille, who’s a key player in the movie but dead the moment you hear about her, »

Lindsay Lohan is in the last-chance saloon again, and now it's all on TV

6 March 2014 4:06 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The life of Lindsay Lohan just got a whole lot more troubled, with Oprah Winfrey cutting her no slack on a new reality TV show. But is it all it may seem?

• Molly Smitten-Downes – a weaponised dose of Eurovision Britishness

Jennifer Lawrence can't stand up for falling down

Let's think back to a time when Lindsay Lohan's plight wasn't bone-chillingly upsetting. That is, admittedly, quite a long time ago; when she was just a wide-eyed starlet who couldn't drive a car properly, before you heard about the addictions and the arrests and the way that her parents couldn't be more aggressively awful if they maintained an artisanal puppy-murdering factory at the local orphanage.

How things have changed. Now, to think about Lindsay Lohan is to feel a moment of unbearable sadness. The same sadness you felt about Amy Winehouse, or the one you will invariably feel about Justin Bieber 18 months from now. »

Russell Brand tells Oprah he 'can't manage' using drugs again -- Video

6 March 2014 3:08 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Lindsay Lohan isn’t the only celebrity whose candid battle with past (and some not-so-past) demons is slated for primetime on the Own network. Now, Russell Brand is sitting down with Oprah Winfrey for a frank conversation about drug addiction.

In the wake of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s untimely death from a drug overdose, Brand talked with Winfrey about his former struggles with heroin and life as a recovering addict in the premiere episode of Oprah Prime (formerly Oprah’s Next Chapter), airing Sunday.

Sober for over a decade, Brand has become a crusader for a better public understanding of addiction as a disease. »

Birthday Gallery: Josh Bowman Turns 26

4 March 2014 7:43 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Revenge returns on Sunday (at its new time of 10 Pm Et), and hopefully we’ll see the continued presence of Newly Bad Boy Daniel (I can’t be the only one who feels that Daniel has only become hotter the more he descends into villain territory).

Josh Bowman is obviously enjoying the transition from babe-in-the-woods to bastard, as he’s taken Daniel deliciously over-the-top.

Today is Josh’s 26th birthday, so let’s take a mostly shirtless look at his life and career (you probably know that Josh is British, but did you also know that he briefly dated … Amy Winehouse?)

Charlotte Church reminisces over chat show: 'I'd do comedy again'

26 February 2014 9:12 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Charlotte Church has opened up about her Channel 4 series The Charlotte Church Show, revealing that she would like to get back into comedy.

The singer, whose chat show ran for three series, explained that she would consider a return to comedy but wouldn't want to make any compromises over its content.

"I would love to do something like that in comedy again, I love doing comedy and I loved doing that show," she told Digital Spy.

"Especially the first series of it. The first series was a bit more edgy and we were free to be a bit more surreal with it but then because it got quite successful and the channel sort of jumped on it and wanted it to be this, that and the other, and kind of made it have a more mainstream appeal, then it lost something I thought.

Hoffman's 'accused heroin dealer' linked to other celebs who Od'd

17 February 2014 11:32 PM, PST | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

Washington, February 18: The "accused drug dealer" arrested in Philip Seymore Hoffman's death probe has been linked to other 3 major celebs who all died from over dose.

Robert Vineberg has been linked to Amy Winehouse and famed NYC artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, as he was friends with both the late celebrities, TMZ.com reported.

Sources have revealed that Basquiat and Vineberg used a lot of heroin during the 80s in Vineberg's apartment, where the 'Capote' star visited years later to allegedly score some drugs.

Vineberg has earlier denied that he sold heroin to Hoffman which became the cause of his death.. »

Film Review: ‘Amy Winehouse: The Day She Came to Dingle’

17 February 2014 8:28 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Those looking for a straightforward concert film may be thrown by Maurice Linnane’s BBC documentary “Amy Winehouse: The Day She Came to Dingle.” Certainly the songstress, who died in 2011, is shown in top form during this 2006 appearance, delivering soulful renditions of “Back to Black” and other standouts for the delectation of some 80 souls in the small church of an Irish fishing village. But much of the documentary is concerned with placing the artist and the playdate in context, and exploring what made Winehouse’s performance in Dingle so special. At just under an hour, the film seems best suited to fest and tube play. 

Striking panoramas of a remote seaside town at the edge of the world are interspersed with explanations of how Dingle’s Other Voices festival became such an illustrious televised musical platform. The pastor of St. James’ Church, program officials and bass guitarist Dale Davis, one »

Philip Seymour Hoffman's Alleged Drug Dealer, Robert Vineberg: I'm a 'Scapegoat'

10 February 2014 8:20 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

An alleged heroin dealer who was arrested following the tragic death of Philip Seymour Hoffman says he and the late actor were friends who bonded over their mutual struggles with drug addiction. Speaking from Rikers Island, where he is currently jailed on felony drug possession charges, Robert Vineberg offered condolences to Hoffman's family, but said that he's been made a "scapegoat" in the case as police seek answers after Hoffman's Feb. 2 death, the New York Post reports. "He was my friend," said Vineberg, a jazz saxophonist and composer who has worked with Madonna, Wyclef Jean and the late Amy Winehouse. »
