Remembering Jerry Lewis, the World’s First Rock Star of Imbecility

22 August 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jerry Lewis, who died last week at 91, was hardly the first comedian to make people laugh by acting transcendently idiotic. The Marx Brothers took hilarious head-spinning dives into the outer limits of surreal silliness. So did Laurel and Hardy, Abbott and Costello and the Three Stooges. But Jerry Lewis was the world’s first rock star of imbecility.

If you watch one of his comedy routines with Dean Martin from the ’40s and ’50s, you see something amazing. Martin, brandishing his sleepy-eyed cocktail-lounge machismo, was the straight man, and Lewis, flitting and prancing around him, was a one-man circus of slapstick brain damage — he jumped on people, he brayed out words in a mincing baby voice, he crossed his eyes and giggled at his own jokes, and every so often he slipped in a crack so smart that it let you know everything he was doing was a put-on. Yet it was Martin, the »

French Women Take a Stand: How Two New French Films Address Issues of Representation

22 August 2017 9:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The following essay was produced as part of the 2017 Locarno Critics Academy, a workshop for aspiring film critics that took place during the 70th edition of the Locarno Film Festival.

No matter how progressive the film community becomes, women continue to struggle to see their stories told. The problem is twofold — the representation of women in contemporary cinema and the enabling of women directors — and the scope of it is global. The 70th edition of the Locarno Film Festival featured no films directed solely by women in the main competition. This is a problem that has faced many contemporary festivals around the world, but Locarno at least managed to showcase two completely different films with assertive female leads: Serge Bozon’s “Mrs. Hyde” and Valerie Massadian’s “Milla.”

“Milla” was one of the more prominent films directed by a woman in this year’s Locarno Film Festival, where it competed »

Jerry Lewis, Comedy Legend, Dead at 91

20 August 2017 10:57 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Jerry Lewis, an actor and auteur who was one of the most influential forces in American comedy, died Sunday morning at his Las Vegas. He was 91.

"Legendary entertainer Jerry Lewis passed away peacefully today of natural causes at 91 at his home with family by his side," his family said in a statement to the Las Vegas Review-Journal writer John Katsilometes. No cause of death was announced.

In a career that spanned vaudeville, radio, television, film and philanthropy, Lewis established the persona of a manic, juvenile jokester, which belied darker, more self-lacerating elements below the surface, »

Isabelle Huppert Is a Monster After Dark In Serge Bozon’s ‘Mrs. Hyde’ — Review

10 August 2017 7:19 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Isabelle Huppert excels at playing tough, individualistic women, but she can just as easily dial it down for more fragile performances, so it was only a matter of time before she landed a role that let her have it both ways. In Serge Bozon’s peculiar comedy “Mrs. Hyde,” she’s a beleaguered French schoolteacher who gets struck by lightning and taps into the much more powerful, vindictive side of her personality lurking beneath the surface.

It’s a fascinating role in an uneven but frequently insightful movie riddled with amusing asides and enigmatic developments, partly because Huppert doesn’t undergo a radical transformation. Instead, she subtly finds herself at war with her inner confidence, and it’s often hard to tell which side has the upper hand.

The Nature of Evil: Close-Up on Jean Renoir’s "The Testament of Dr. Cordelier"

9 August 2017 10:30 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Close-Up is a feature that spotlights films now playing on Mubi. Jean Renoir's The Testament of Dr. Cordelier (1959) is playing August 3 - September 2, 2017 in the United States as part of the series Jean Renoir.Jean Renoir frequently focused on complicated characters who toe the line between right and wrong. They are often trapped by social mores, for better or for worse. In works like The Crime of Monsieur Lange (1936) or The River (1951), characters are unfairly confined, while in films like La chienne (1931) or La bête humaine (1938), a breaking from custom is fatally dangerous. Even in more light-hearted fare, such as French Cancan (1954), a bold flaunting of convention is cause for conflict and scandal. It seems only logical, then, that Renoir in his interest in the imposed customs of community and the social construction of morals would be drawn to Robert Louis Stevenson’s Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde »

Video Essay. The Brotherhood of Opale

4 August 2017 4:31 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

The 23rd entry in an on-going series of audiovisual essays by Cristina Álvarez López and Adrian Martin. Mubi is showing Jean Renoir's The Testament of Dr. Cordelier (1959) is August 3 - September 2, 2017 in the United States as part of the series Jean Renoir.Jean Renoir’s The Experiment of Dr. Cordelier (a.k.a. The Doctor’s Horrible Experiment, 1959), shot using the multi-camera set-up of a television production, is a free variation on Robert Louis Stevenson’s immortal tale, Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1886). However, Renoir’s take on this material owes less to the horror genre than to a kind of speculative, philosophical fiction. Unlike in most screen versions of the Jekyll/Hyde duality, Renoir goes easy on the conventional distinction between the good and evil sides of a single personality. Yes, the figure of Opale, into whom Cordelier transforms himself, is destructive, bestial, cruel, and sadistic. »

Movie Review: The Mummy

9 June 2017 5:31 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Shared universes are all the rage these days. Marvel started the trend almost a decade ago and each major studio now seems eager to establish their own. While Marvel has perfected the formula in which you focus on a specific character’s story first and then slowly introduce them into a larger universe, this is an element that other studios have chosen to ignore. Warner Bros. couldn’t wait to get their Justice League film together so after Man of Steel, they rushed into Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice which was a huge critical misfire. Suicide Squad was another hot mess, and while Wonder Woman is undeniably great, one must wonder (pun somewhat intended) if it was so well received because it focused on a single character and her arc. Now we have established her and she will most likely be one of the highlights of this year’s Justice League, »

‘The Mummy’ Reviews: What the Critics Are Saying

7 June 2017 2:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Despite its strong opening overseas, not even Tom Cruise can save the “The Mummy” reboot from unfavorable reviews, which are currently averaging a 26 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

In the first installment of Universal’s “Dark Universe” film series, Cruise plays soldier Nick Morton, who scours ancient sites for timeless artifacts to sell them to the highest bidder. After coming under attack in the Middle East by a betrayed Egyptian princess, Cruise has to stop the previously entombed monster as she rampages throughout London. Cruise stars alongside Sofia Boutella, Jake Johnson, Russell Crowe, and Courtney B. Vance in the modern-day “Mummy” installment set to release in the U.S. this Friday.

The busy film received overwhelmingly negative reception, with most calling out the movie’s seemingly unrelated interconnected plot of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde tied in with an entirely different monster story. Other reviews call out the main story itself, »

Take a look here…

Thought safely entombed in a tomb deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess (Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension.

From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters. »

Universal Monsters: Beauty & The Beast Helmer Bill Condon In Talks To Direct Bride Of Frankenstein

14 April 2017 1:29 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

In a few months, we will be getting a reboot of the Universal monster franchise, The Mummy. This film will kick off a shared universe of monsters that contain such iconic characters as the Invisible Man, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, the creature from the Black Lagoon, and of course, Dracula. 

We’ve only seen a teaser and a trailer for one film thus far, but Universal is still starting to put all the other pieces in place in case of success. We already know they’re starting work on other films like The Wolf Man and Van Helsing, but it sounds like they’re already taking some pretty big steps for another film of theirs, Bride of Frankenstein.

According to a new report from Deadline, Bill Condon, the man behind Disney’s latest $1 billion hit Beauty and the Beast, is currently in talks with Universal to helm the adaptation »

Is Chris Evans ‘Gifted’ Enough to Lead a Non-Marvel Film?

13 April 2017 6:51 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

His history of underperforming at the box office makes predicting a post-Marvel career tricky.

If the image of a bearded, flannel-clad Chris Evans playing a single uncle isn’t enough to lure throngs of women to the movies, I don’t know what will. In his latest film, Gifted, Evans plays Frank Adler, the aforementioned single uncle to a spunky six year-old gifted child, Mary (Mckenna Grace). Frank is caring for his niece after the unexpected death of his sister and he yearns for the child to have a normal and healthy life. After he sends Mary off on her first day of school, her teacher, Bonnie (Jenny Slate), notices the child’s remarkable abilities and alerts the school’s principal. Mary is offered a chance to attend a prestigious school for gifted children, which Frank promptly declines. This kicks off a custody battle between Frank and his estranged mother, Evelyn »

Why Ricki Lake Wants to Help Other Families Who Are Battling Mental Illness: ‘Love Is Blind and I Didn’t Want to See It’

3 March 2017 5:30 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Ricki Lake is trying to let go.

More than a week after her ex-husband, jewelry designer Christian Evans, committed suicide at age 45 amid his battle with bipolar disorder, Lake was still “in disbelief,” she tells People in this week’s issue. “I have some bouts of peace, but it’s hard to swallow that this was supposed to happen,” she says.

When the actress and former talk show host, 48, began dating Evans in September 2010, he was upfront about being diagnosed with the illness earlier in his life but did not like taking medication. “He would self-medicate,” Lake says. “He had »
