New York Film Festival 2014: Listen Up Philip Gets A Trailer

16 September 2014 11:55 AM, PDT

From the Film Society of Lincoln Center: Alex Ross Perry’s third feature heralds the arrival of a bold new voice in American movies. Even more than in his critically lauded The Color Wheel, Perry draws on literary models (mainly Philip Roth and William Gaddis) to achieve a brazen mixture of bitter humor and unexpected pathos. In this sly, very funny portrait of artistic egomania, Jason Schwartzman stars as Philip Lewis Friedman, a precocious literary star anticipating the publication of his second novel. Philip is a caustic narcissist, but the film, shot with tremendous agility on Super-16mm by Sean Price Williams, leaves his orbit frequently, lingering on the perspectives of his  [ Read More ]

Tusk Movie Review

16 September 2014 2:00 AM, PDT

Title: Tusk Director: Kevin Smith Starring: Justin Long, Michael Parks, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez and Johnny Depp Truly understanding other people’s pain and inability to cope with the agonizing experiences they’ve faced throughout their lives is a challenge many people are unable to understand, until they’ve witnessed their agony first-hand. The new horror film ‘Tusk,’ which was written and directed by Kevin Smith, is a prime and exhilarating example of how people, even as they mature and grow older, can joke, and even take pleasure in, other people’s misfortune. The movie smartly emphasizes that until a person is intimately shown the distressing past of even one other person, and  [ Read More ]

The Skeleton Twins Movie Review

15 September 2014 4:53 PM, PDT

Title: The Skeleton Twins Director: Craig Johnson Starring: Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Luke Wilson and Ty Burrell People don’t always understand the emotions everyone around them are experiencing, even if they’ve been through the same situations in life, as everyone reacts to each circumstance differently. This is certainly the case in the new drama, ‘The Skeleton Twins,’ which was directed by Craig Johnson, who co-wrote the script with Mark Heyman. The film’s title characters passionately emphasize that no matter how much people know each other, and how intense the situations they share are, they need to talk about their thoughts and experiences before they can truly understand each other. ‘The  [ Read More ]

The Man on Her Mind Movie Review

15 September 2014 4:42 PM, PDT

Title: The Man on Her Mind Director: Bruce Guthrie and Alan Hruska Starring: Amy McAllister, Samuel James, Georgia Mackenzie and Shane Attwooll Engaging in relatively new experiences that have not yet been fully explored can be truly harrowing and terrifying situations for anyone, no matter how much they’re seeking a change in their lives. Exploring that uncharted territory is intriguingly presented in several circumstances in the new romantic comedy, ‘The Man on Her Mind.’ The project is one of the first major film roles for both lead actors, Amy McAllister and Samuel James, and also the feature film directorial debut of co-helmer, Bruce Guthrie. Despite the movie being their true  [ Read More ]

L’Ape Maia (Maia The Bee) Movie Review

15 September 2014 12:47 PM, PDT

Title: L’Ape Maia (Maia The  Bee) Director: Alexs Stadermann Genre: Animation Country: Germany Those who were kids in Europe, from the 70s onwards, will remember the jingle of the cartoon that had as protagonist a young and adventurous female bee. The insect which became popular amongst young audiences, through the book series written by Waldermar Bonsels, won’t be surprised to see that Maia, the Bee, has now flown from the small screen to the big screen. ‘L’Ape Maia’ is an ode to friendship, freedom and courage. Just as in the cartoon series the feisty young bee has spirit, and her curiosity and desire for adventure clash with the disciplined rules  [ Read More ]

Vinodentro (Wine Within) Movie Review

15 September 2014 12:43 PM, PDT

Title: Vinodentro (Wine Within) Director: Ferdinando Vicentini Orgnani Starring: Vincenzo Amato, Pietro Sermonti, Daniela Virgilio, Lambert Wilson, Giovanna Mezzogiorno. A pretentiously inebriating film is what could define ‘Vinodentro’ (i.e. Wine Within). The actual drama begins with Giovanni Cuttin’s first sip of wine, which changes his carrier, his marriage, and his attitude to life in general. In a Faust-like setting, the main character sells his soul to a fiendish-wine entity who enables him to get a promotion, become a Don Juan  and an expert in wine tasting. What interferes with his newly accomplished life is the mysterious death of his wife, which seems to frame him as the culprit. The investigations  [ Read More ]

Idris Elba and Dominic West Join Finding Dory

15 September 2014 12:29 PM, PDT

We hadn’t checked in on Disney-Pixar’s “Finding Dory” in a while. The sequel to insta-classic “Finding Nemo” has its star, Ellen DeGeneres, who is returning to the franchise to voice the easily-confused fish Dory. There have been some voice acting developments recently, but first let’s recap as to who is returning to the film along with DeGeneres. Albert Brooks and Willem Dafoe, who played the Nemo’s dad Marlin and fishtank leader Gill, respectively, are also coming back. Vicki Lewis is also returning as fishtank denizen Deb (and, by extension, Deb’s mirror image “sister” Flo). But news has been released of two new voices joining the fun–Idris Elba and Dominic West.  [ Read More ]

Tom Hardy Declares He’ll Never Do Rom-Coms Again

15 September 2014 11:57 AM, PDT

This Means War” certainly wasn’t a film that garnered any awards the year it came out. In fact, it was a film that was on many critics’ “forgettable” list. The rom-com starring Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine and Tom Hardy didn’t win over many new hearts, including Hardy. Recently, Hardy told the truth about his time on set and how he’ll probably never do another rom-com again. Hardy told USA Today that he took the film on as a way to expand his acting horizons, but that the plan backfired. “I love to do things that I hadn’t done before,” he said. “I didn’t understand how you could do something which  [ Read More ]

At the Devil’s Door Movie Review

15 September 2014 10:20 AM, PDT

Title: At the Devil’s Door Director: Nicholas McCarthy Starring: Catalina Sandino Moreno, Naya Rivera, Ashley Rickards, Wyatt Russell, Ava Acres Less is sometimes more, and then sometimes less is merely less — atmospherics in the service of an elliptical story of posed dread, whose twisted, wire frame can’t hold the weight of a viewer’s long-form interest. Such is unfortunately the case with writer-director Nicholas McCarthy’s sophomore effort, “At the Devil’s Door,” an in many ways admirably restrained supernatural horror film about a variety of women grappling quite literally with demons. The film opens with a young girl (Ashley Rickards) becoming quite troubled after playing an unsettling magic game with the  [ Read More ]
