Opening Night – World Premiere

Gone Girl

David Fincher, USA, 2014, Dcp, 150m

David Fincher’s film version of Gillian Flynn’s phenomenally successful best seller (adapted by the author) is one wild cinematic ride, a perfectly cast and intensely compressed portrait of a recession-era marriage contained within a devastating depiction of celebrity/media culture, shifting gears as smoothly as a Maserati 250F. Ben Affleck is Nick Dunne, whose wife Amy (Rosamund Pike) goes missing on the day of their fifth anniversary. Neil Patrick Harris is Amy’s old boyfriend Desi, Carrie Coon (who played Honey in Tracy Letts’s acclaimed production of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) is Nick’s sister Margo, Kim Dickens (TremeFriday Night Lights) is Detective Rhonda Boney, and Tyler Perry is Nick’s superstar lawyer Tanner Bolt. At once a grand panoramic vision of middle America, a uniquely disturbing exploration of the fault lines in a marriage, »

Haugesund primed for 42nd edition

15 August 2014 2:50 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Norwegian festival will open with Beatles; record number of works-in-progress; 350 delegates for New Nordic Films.

This year’s 42nd Norwegian International Film Festival Haugesund (Aug 16 – 22) will open with a film that is receiving plenty of local attention.

Danish director Peter Flinth’s Beatles is adapted from one of Norway’s most popular coming-of-age novels.

Scripted by Axel Hellstenius, it follows four Oslo boys in their adolescent and early adult years between 1965-1972.

“True friendship endures all, and no band in the world is better than The Beatles,” concludes the film which will have its world premiere in Haugesund and stars Halvor Tangen Schultz, Jonathan Chedeville, Louis Williams and Håvard Jackwitz.

“It was like climbing a mountain, starting with getting the rights to The Beatles’ music,” said Norwegian producer Jørgen Storm Rosenberg about his new film.

The opener is a fitting send off for festival director Gunnar Johan Løvvik, who will step down after having run the event »

2014 Nyff: Chazelle, Broomfield, Bonello, Ferrara, Sang-soo, Hansen-Løve Make Cut

13 August 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

While Sundance (Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash and Alex Ross Perry’s Listen Up Philip) and Berlin (Dominik Graf’s Beloved Sisters, Yann Demange’s ’71, Alain ResnaisLife of Riley) titles are indeed present, the 52nd edition (much like previous years) is a Cannes heavy and slightly Venice lopsided affair/showcase for Manhattanites.

Also the lieu for subtitle friendly distrib companies to measure their summer purchases (IFC, Spc, Cinema Guild, Cohen Media), leading the pack in non Croisette or Lido items, we’re most curious about Pedro Costa’s Horse Money, Matías Piñeiro’s The Princess of France and Eugène Green’s La Sapienza and are looking forward to multi-volume Eden from Mia Hansen-Løve and Nick Broomfield’s (Telluride-tiff) Tales of the Grim Sleeper (see pic above) Added to Fincher’s Gone Girl, Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice and Iñárritu’s Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance here are »

13 August 2014 8:48 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Abel Ferrara's Pasolini and Mia Hansen-Love's Eden are two other high profile and anticipated films that will be playing Toronto and you can add Mathieu Amalric's The Blue Room, Hong Sang-soo's Hill of Freedom, »

Il Cinema Ritrovato: Cinematic Treasures Lost and Found, Back on the Bigscreen

11 July 2014 4:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A large crowd queues impatiently outside the cinema and, when the doors open, rushes in. In an instant, every available seat is taken. Toward the back of the auditorium, a dispute breaks out between two passholders over who was there first. It’s a common enough sight at film festivals the world over: Sundance, Cannes, Telluride, Toronto. Only this time, we are in the serene college town of Bologna and the coveted premiere isn’t the latest work by a prize-winning auteur, but rather an early Hollywood sound film believed to have been unseen in nearly 70 years. The movie is called “Why Be Good?” (pictured above) and it was one of the hottest tickets you could come by at the 28th edition if Il Cinema Ritrovato (June 28-July 5), which screened the 1929 Vitaphone feature in a sterling new restoration.
