Italo Auteur Marco Bellocchio Appointed Cineteca Di Bologna Prexy

26 March 2014 5:38 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – Italo auteur Marco Bellocchio has been appointed president of Italy’s Cineteca di Bologna, the prominent film archives known globally as a prime film preservation entity and also for its annual Il Cinema Ritrovato fest dedicated to revival and retrospective programming.

Bellocchio’s vast body of work, which spans from 1965 “Fists in the Pocket,” about a dysfunctional family, to 2012 euthanasia-themed “Dormant Beauty,” will soon be featured in a retro at New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), running April 19-May 7. The helmer will head the foundation that oversees the Bologna cinematheque, whose director and main operative remains film restoration expert Gian Luca Farinelli.

Bellocchio, 74, specified to the Italian press that the appointment does not mean he will no longer be making movies. Just that he will do what he can to “help this foundation, which is known around the world, to grow even more,” he told Bologna newspaper “Il Resto Del Carlino. »

Latest Grace Of Monaco Trailer Finally Reveals Nicole Kidman And Key Conflict

6 March 2014 10:50 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Grace of Monaco has had some serious highs and lows, just like its central figure Grace Kelly. But as it approaches its world premiere at the illustrious Cannes Film Festival, the biopic about the movie star turned princess has finally unveiled a meaty trailer that gives a sense of its scale as well as its central drama. Penned by Erased scribe Arash Amel, Grace of Monaco focuses on what Grace Kelly's life was like after she left the spotlight and stardom of Hollywood and stepped into the politics of Monaco by marrying Prince Ranier III. The film picks up in 1962. Film roles in Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window, Dial M for Murder and To Catch A Thief were long behind her. She and Ranier have been married for six years. But Kelly hasn't made a seamless transition from the mansions of Hollywood to castles of Monaco, and struggles to reconcile »

‘A Perfect Murder’ is well directed but suffers from an uneven script

14 February 2014 6:30 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

A Perfect Murder

Written by Patrick Smith Kelly

Directed by Andrew Davis

USA, 1998

In a makeshift loft apartment in one of Manhattan’s forgotten districts, two lovers, Emily and David (Gwyneth Paltrow and Viggo Mortensen) embrace passionately under the bed sheets amidst a collection of amateur paintings. Emily is a successful aid to the United States ambassador at the United Nations, while David is a struggling artist hoping to catch a break in the New York art scene. The glitch in their happiness is that Emily is married to another man, Steven Taylor (Michael Douglas), an investor. Steven, perceptive and driven by the suspicion that his wife may be cheating on him, quickly collects all the information necessary to confirm his suspicions and some dirty secrets about David’s past. Rather than threaten David with murderous rage, Steven makes the artist an offer: murder Emily and earn $500,000 in the process. »

'Grace' Biopic Will Open Cannes, Lacks North America Release Date

27 January 2014 4:59 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Grace of Monaco’ U.S. March release canceled as biopic starring Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly to open 2014 Cannes Film Festival (photo: Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly in ‘Grace of Monaco’) Directed by Olivier Dahan, and starring Nicole Kidman as Oscar-winning Hollywood actress-turned-European princess Grace Kelly, Grace of Monaco was to have been a (possibly) strong Oscar 2014 contender — at least in the Best Actress category. After all, Dahan had guided 2007 Best Actress Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard as Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose; Nicole Kidman is a respected actress with one Academy Award win (for Stephen Daldry’s The Hours) and two nominations (Moulin Rouge!, Rabbit Hole); and, last but certainly not least, Grace of Monaco was to have been released in North America by the Oscar-savvy The Weinstein Company. However, Harvey Weinstein was reportedly unhappy with Olivier Dahan’s final cut, and demanded that Grace of Monaco be reedited. »
