Watch: Trailer For Andrey Zvyagintsev's Acclaimed Cannes Winner 'Leviathan'

29 August 2014 9:02 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You may not be able to pronounce the name Andrey Zvyagintsev, but this spring you likely saw that flurry of consonants and vowels across Twitter or in the blogosphere. The director's epic "Leviathan" was the big talk of the Cannes Film Festival, and one many thought would take the Palme d'Or. Instead, it had to settle on the screenplay prize, but if the buzz is anything to go by, this is a movie you need to put high on your watch list. Starring Alexey Serebryakov, Elena Lyadova, Vladimir Vdovitchenkov, Roman Madyanov, Anna Ukolova, Alexey Rozin and Sergey Pokhadaev, the movie is set in a small town in which a property owner and the mayor battle over a parcel of land, in a story inspired by the Biblical tale of Job. But there's much more, as it comments on corruption in Russia, and our A-grade review calls the movie "not just masterful but also hugely important. »

Roger & Me, Tiff Docs and Master Programmes announced for Tiff 2014

31 July 2014 9:13 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Documentaries will have a significant presence at 39th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival.  “I’m thrilled that a 25th anniversary screening is being held at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it premiered and was awarded the Festival’s major prize, the People’s Choice Award,” stated Michael Moore who will be attending the event. “The fact that Roger & Me is as relevant today as it was 25 years ago is a travesty. Actually, it’s more than that. At least in 1989, there were still 50,000 General Motors jobs left in Flint. Today, there are but 4,000 Gm jobs that remain in Flint, the birthplace of General Motors.”

Tiff will be showcasing new documentaries by Nick Broomfield, Ethan Hawke, The Yes Men, Joshua Oppenheimer, Frederick Wiseman, Jonathan Nossiter plus the debut efforts of Marah Strauch and Tamara Erde.  “This year’s selection is heavily populated with rebels, resisters and risk-takers,” remarked Tiff Docs programmer Thom Powers. »

2014 Tiff: Masters Section Has Your Usual Cannes & Venice Items and…Winterbottom & Bent Hamer World Preems

29 July 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The Masters section is always a Croisette and Lido heavy selection and this year is no different. From Cannes we have Jean-Luc Godard’s Goodbye to Language 3D (which is a top of the charts item according to our Blake Williams) Andrey Zvyagintsev’s Leviathan (which our Nicholas Bell thinks is near perfection and calls “cinematic sublimity with this multilayered and operatic exploration of the crushing corruption of an unchecked regime” and Abderrahmane Sissakos’ Timbuktu. On tap directly from Venice we might have the retirement films from Roy Andersson (A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence) and Ann Hui (The Golden Era), with some South Korean representation from Hong Sang-soo in Hill of Freedom and Revivre from Im Kwon-taek, but the worthy mentions are the nabbed world premiere status items from the always fascinating, taste dispenser and wide-ranging filmography in Michael Winterbottom & the always wry and humorous latest »
