The Best Movies to Ever Win Cannes’ Palme d’Or — IndieWire Critic Survey

15 May 2017 11:57 AM, 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.)

This week’s question: In honor of the Cannes Film Festival, the 70th edition of which starts this week, what is the best film to ever win the coveted Palme d’Or?

For a complete list of Palme d’Or winners, click here.

This question is impossible because I clearly haven’t seen all 40 Palme d’Or winners (it’s on my to do list, I swear). But I could easily say “Apocalypse Now,” “Paris, Texas,” “Taxi Driver,” “Amour,” or even “Pulp Fiction.” But since this is a personal question, I have to say “The Tree of Life.” No film has moved me »

Palme Thursday: Want to win Cannes? Try pissing off the pope

19 April 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

Palme Thursday is A.A. Dowd’s monthly examination of a winner of the Palme D’Or, determining how well the film has held up and whether it deserved the highest prize awarded at the Cannes Film Festival.

Viridiana (1961) and The Long Absence (1961)

There was a time when the most surefire way to win Cannes was, apparently, to earn the condemnation of the pope. Okay, so maybe that only happened twice, but it was in consecutive years. La Dolce Vita, arguably the most celebrated movie by the legendary Italian filmmaker Federico Fellini, deeply offended the Catholic church, which objected especially to the symbolic Second Coming of the opening minutes, when a helicopter dangles a statue of Christ over the partiers and sunbathers of then-contemporary Rome. But the Vatican’s ire, strongly worded in the pages of official newspaper L’Osservatore Romano, couldn’t stop Fellini’s portrait of ...

Amid YouTube Channel Evolution, Dulce Candy Signs With Kin Community (Exclusive)

17 April 2017 11:54 AM, PDT | | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Army veteran-turned-beauty and fashion influencer Dulce Candy Ruiz has signed with Kin Community, a leading multi-channel network in the lifestyle space. Kin, which also represents Rosanna Pansino, Hannah Hart, and, most recently, Mr. Kate, will work with Ruiz to develop original and branded content.

Ruiz, who is 29 years old and who originally hails from Mexico, counts roughly 4.6 million followers across all of her social channels, including roughly 2.5 million subscribers between her two YouTube channels. While her videos originated within the beauty and fashion spaces, they have since evolved to comprise more intimate confessionals touting messages of self-empowerment. Signing with Kin serves to help solidify that transition, says Ruiz, who was formerly signed to StyleHaul, and who is also the author of an inspirational life guide called The Sweet Life.

Chris Evans Comments On A Potential Black Widow Movie

13 April 2017 4:32 PM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

Elle Magazine recently sat down with Chris Evans and discussed a number of topics. From politics, sports, and dating, the interview covered the gamut of information you would expect. (It also includes a shirtless photo of Mr. Evans with whip cream on his chest. Sometimes there's not enough a person can do to forget an image.) One tidbit of information the interview gave was his comments on a potential Black Widow movie.

"That's a good question. It would really just clean up, wouldn't it? Scarlett [Johansson] is so good at everything she does. She's played such a crucial part in the other films. She always makes her presence so felt—even when there are 50 different superheroes running around onscreen. I wouldn't be surprised if that happens at some point in the future. I'm sure Scarlett would be open to it."

For my money, the fact we haven't seen a Black Widow »

12 People with 10+ Oscar Nominations and No Wins

26 February 2017 8:07 PM, PST | | See recent news »

At the Academy Awards on Sunday night, Kevin O’Connell just broke the longest streak for Oscar nominations without a win. The 59-year-old New Yorker had been nominated 21 times in total, making 2017 a very good year for him.

Who else among Hollywood’s finest has had to weather a storm of nominations without a win? Well, even just keeping it to over 10 nominations, it’s a healthy list. Let’s take a look.

Greg P. Russell

O’Connell’s win must have been somewhat bittersweet for Russell, who’s directly behind the elder sound mixer in the category of most nominations without wins. »

Masters of Cinema Cast Episode 54 – Rocco and His Brothers

15 February 2017 5:00 AM, PST | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

We return with a look at Luchino Visconti’s Rocco and His Brothers. Enjoy!

From Masters of Cinema:

From Luchino Visconti — the master director of such classics as La terra tremaBellissima, and The Leopard — comes this epic study of family, sex, and betrayal. Alongside Fellini’s La dolce vita and Antonioni’s L’avventura, Visconti’s Rocco and His Brothers [Rocco e i suoi fratelli] ushered Italian cinema into a new era, one unafraid to confront head-on the hypocrisies of the ruling class, the squalor in urban living, and the collision between generations.

When a tight-knit family moves from Italy’s rural south to metropolitan Milan, the new possibilities – and threats – present in their fresh surroundings have alarming, unforeseen consequences. Operatically weaving the five brothers’ stories across a vast canvas, with an extraordinary cast including Alain Delon, Annie Girardot and Claudia CardinaleRocco and His Brothers stands as one of the most majestic and influential works of its era. »

Faith, Hope, & Clarity: Hollywood Again Shows Respect in Films for Spiritual Ideas

5 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Like a prodigal son, Hollywood is again returning to religion.

Since the 1980s, Hollywood has been criticized (with justification) for depicting any religious believer as mindless, evil or both. Filmmakers this year treat them with respect.

Silence” and “Hacksaw Ridge” daringly center around devout Christians. Religious beliefs have a positive effect on the lead characters in other 2016 films, including “Fences,” “Hidden Figures,” “Jackie,” “Mr. Church,” even “The Conjuring 2.”

Studios have their own belief system, and it’s based on recent hits. Hollywood loves stories about an individual whose principles are challenged, but usually the protagonist is a superhero, cop or animated creature.

Silence” depicts the culture clash of Western Christians with Japanese. The long legacy of the “white savior” is turned upside down, and the film raises issues of faith, doubt, personal integrity, and the fine line between belief and stubborn pride. To its credit, “Silence” raises questions that audience members must answer. »

How Often Do Foreign-Language Films Score Screenwriting Oscar Nominations Or Wins?

4 January 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

Toni Erdmann’ (Courtesy: Tiff)

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

It’s not too often that foreign-language films get recognized for anything at the Oscars beyond the best foreign-language film category — but it does happen. And, believe it or not, it happens more for best original screenplay and best adapted screenplay than many other categories. A prime example of that is Toni Erdmann, Germany’s submission this year that is proving to be a cross-category threat, which could score a nomination — or a win — for its writing.

The story of Toni Erdmann — which has a solid Rotten Tomatoes score of 91% — follows a father who is trying to reconnect with his adult daughter after the death of his dog. It sounds simple enough but, of course, the two couldn’t be more unalike. The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2016 and where it won the Fipresci Prize. Since then, it »
