Gotham Season 3 Finale Review – ‘Destiny Calling’ & ‘Heavydirtysoul’

6 June 2017 2:40 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr reviews Gotham’s season 3 finale…

An hour and a half of back to back episodes combine with viral mayhem as villains running amok, people get shot or stabbed and Gotham goes to the dogs. Between Fish Mooney, Penguin and Nygma vying for supremacy, while Hugo Strange is arrested, kidnapped or bounced from pillar to post things do get a little complex plot wise.

With The Court of Owls gone, Gordon infected and Lee constantly phoning trying to arrange a lovers tryst, you would be forgiven for thinking these writers had preoccupations about tying things off. With ninety percent of Gotham crazed thanks to the weaponised Tetch virus, most of ‘Destiny Calling’ is focused on tracking down an antidote. Gordon is up against it and Bullock stands by his partner as he slowly begins giving in to the hatred brought out in him. McKenzie handles this transition well continually »

New to Streaming: ‘John Wick: Chapter 2,’ ‘Raw,’ ‘David Lynch: The Art Life,’ and More

26 May 2017 5:01 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Berlin Syndrome (Cate Shortland)

While the recent 10 Cloverfield Lane and Room told stories of captivity with various hooks — science-fiction and the process of healing, respectively — Cate Shortland’s approach in her latest, harrowing drama Berlin Syndrome makes room for more nuance and depth. Locked in a Berlin apartment, there is little hope for our protagonist for nearly the entire runtime. And while some of the story’s turns can feel overtly manipulative, »

Cannes at 70: The Five Key Years That Changed the Festival Forever

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

Every Cannes Film Festival is important, but only a handful of the editions have been game-changers. As the festival celebrates its 70th birthday, here are five events that altered the DNA of Cannes, shaping the fest into the global powerhouse that it is today.

The First Festival, 1946

French minister for education and fine arts Jean Zay wanted an international event for France to rival the Venice Film Festival, which had begun in 1932. Several French cities wanted to host; Cannes was selected over Biarritz because it had better hotels. Variety reported in June 1939 that a Cannes festival was planned for September, under the presidency of Louis Lumiere; however, WWII put a freeze on any European festivities.

Cannes finally debuted in September 1946. Variety arranged for coverage, including a special report from Margaret Herrick, the executive secretary of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences. Herrick marveled at the speed of travel: It »

What Movies Are Critics Most Excited to See at Cannes 2017? — Critics Survey

17 April 2017 12:50 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

The lineup for Cannes 2017 has finally been announced, and it’s a doozy. From the inevitable return of Michael Haneke to the shocking inclusion of television (albeit television from celebrated Cannes alumni David Lynch and Jane Campion), the 70th edition of the world’s most prestigious film festival promises to have something for everyone.

We asked our panel of critics to name the Cannes premiere they’re most excited to see, and their answers were unsurprisingly all over the map.
