Ira Sachs Discusses Remaking Ozu and Authentically Capturing Brooklyn With ‘Little Men’

8 August 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

At one point in Ira SachsLittle Men, the young Jake (Theo Taplitz) explains to his parents (played by Greg Kinnear and Jennifer Ehle) how they can avoid evicting their tenant, Leonor (Paulina García), from the store she’d been renting from his late grandfather for years. Jake’s simple economic plan makes the heart ache because of how perfect it is: it calls for empathy, equality, and, without being completely naive, proposes something that could be achievable within the right political system. But his plan is even more heartbreaking because he knows it’s his last chance to salvage his friendship with Tony (Michael Barbieri), Leonor’s adolescent son, who’s become his closest, dearest friend. As the adults stand in disbelief of Jake’s plea, is he addressing their inner child or are they merely getting a preview of the troublesome teenage years ahead? Sachs makes us wonder »

Elizabeth Taylor is back on the big screen with our return engagement of A Place in the Sun

7 July 2016 7:08 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

“My leading men had been dogs and horses.”

That’s Elizabeth Taylor referring to her various co-stars up until she was cast opposite Montgomery Clift in director George Stevens’ 1951 melodrama A Place in the Sun.

Taylor, the child star of MGM films such as Lassie Come Home and National Velvet, was just 17 when Stevens asked her to play Angela Vickers, the wealthy socialite who falls in love with George Eastman (Clift), an ambitious, but poor, young man who is already engaged to pregnant factory worker Alice Tripp (Shelley Winters). Desperate to get rid of Alice, George resorts to extreme measures.

Although still a teenager, Taylor exudes a worldly sexuality that is unsettling for one so young, but she would mature into and harness that magnetic sex appeal, and emerge as one of Hollywood’s most celebrated stars. 

A Place in the Sun screens as part of Cineplex’s Classic Film Series on July 10th, »

Fake Concerts Are Sweeping Facebook, and It's Kind of Hilarious

10 May 2016 11:05 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

On April 20, Limp Bizkit was supposed to give a concert at a Sunoco in Dayton, Ohio. At least, according to Facebook. "We come all the way from West Milton to see Limp Bizkit. Live action," said fan Randy Ray, just one of the 8,9000 confirmed attendees (on Facebook) who showed up, ultimately just to be disappointed, according to Wrgt. Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst issued a statement on Twitter declaring the concert a hoax, but it didn't stop fans from showing up - many were simply there for the fun of it, although a few were hoping for a last-minute surprise: "Where you at? »

A Kiss Before Dying

6 May 2016 7:25 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Robert Wagner as a social climbing psycho killer? I knew it! 'Mr. CinemaScope Smile' grins only once or twice in this movie, and then only to fool an unsuspecting woman. A great cast brings tension to Ira Levin's outrageous tale of murder. Joanne Woodward has a powerful role, but my heartthrob this time out is lovely Virginia Leith. A Kiss Before Dying Blu-ray Kl Studio Classics 1956 / Color / 2:35 widescreen / 95 min. / Street Date May 3, 2016 / available through Kino Lorber / 29.95 Starring Robert Wagner, Jeffrey Hunter, Virginia Leith, Joanne Woodward, Mary Astor, George Macready, Robert Quarry. Cinematography Lucien Ballard Art Direction Addison Hehr Film Editor George A. Gittens Original Music Lionel Newman Written by Lawrence Roman from a novel by Ira Levin Produced by Robert L. Jacks Directed by Gerd Oswald

It's a safe bet that a huge chunk of Americans now identify Robert Wagner as the father of Anthony Dinozzo on TV's NCIS. »

Father of the Bride

18 April 2016 9:23 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

This is one of Spencer Tracy and Elizabeth Taylor's best, written and directed by the classy MGM team of director Vincente Minnelli and writers Frances Goodrich & Albert Hackett. It inspired a decade's worth of TV family sitcoms and set the benchmark for weddings for generations. Great fun and solid sentiment without mugging or exaggeration. Father of the Bride Blu-ray Warner Archive Collection 1950 / B&W / 1:37 flat Academy / 93 min. / Street Date May 10, 2016 / available through the WBshop / 21.99 Starring Spencer Tracy, Elizabeth Taylor, Joan Bennett, Don Taylor, Billie Burke, Moroni Olsen, Melville Cooper, Leo G. Carroll, Rusty Tamblyn, Tom Irish, Frank Cady, Carleton Carpenter. Cinematography John Alton Film Editor Ferris Webster Original Music Adolph Deutsch Written by Frances Goodrich, Albert Hackett from the novel by Edward Streeter Produced by Pandro S. Berman Directed by Vincente Minnelli

Matt Bomer on His Planned Biopic of Hollywood Gay Icon Montgomery Clift: 'I Saw Myself in Him'

21 March 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When Matt Bomer signed on to play Montgomery Clift in the upcoming biopic Monty Clift, he immediately felt as though his connection to the Hollywood icon was more than skin-deep. "I kind of saw myself in him," Bomer told People on the red carpet for the PaleyFest tribute to his series American Horror Story. Of course, their physical resemblance is uncanny - something even Bomer noticed long ago. "Even as a young kid - before obviously I knew anything about him, or even myself - I saw him on screen and I thought, 'Oh wow he actually looks a lot like my brother, »

Ed Lachman Discusses the Cinematic Language of ‘Carol’ and Capturing a Woman’s Point of View

16 March 2016 7:36 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

While attending the Camerimage International Film Festival last November, I was fortunate enough to speak with cinematographer Ed Lachman about Carol — one of the biggest titles they hosted, if it filling an opera house for a 10 a.m. screening should serve as any indication. His busy schedule for the day, as well as a few unexpected outside factors, cut this interview short, and a planned follow-up never came through.

With the film now out on Blu-ray, however — click here to find out how you can win a free copy — it’s about time the thing is shared, a decision also justified for a) the way it exhibits Lachman’s intelligence and candor in equal measure and b) the fact that we certainly admire his work, with or without Todd Haynes. (And, of course, we liked Carol enough to already get other talent on the record about their processes.) Abbreviated though it may be, »

Alejandro G. Inarritu’s ‘Revenant’ DGA Win Keeps Oscar Guessing Game Going

6 February 2016 11:26 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The only thing Alejandro G. Inarritu really had going against him heading into this year’s Directors Guild of America awards ceremony was that he just won a year ago for “Birdman.” Apparently, that wasn’t enough.

The “Revenant” director became the first filmmaker to ever win back-to-back DGA honors for feature filmmaking Saturday night, and really, beyond the simple unlikely nature of that prospect, it’s difficult to call it a shock. After all, it’s not a hard sell to the guild’s 13,000 members that production on “The Revenant” was no walk in the park. That’s certainly been the overbearing linchpin of the film’s campaign these last several weeks, a narrative that is helping to propel Leonardo DiCaprio to his first Oscar. But moreover, voters in this group, they know very well what it takes to pull off a project like this. So they voted accordingly. »
