Last Minute Shopping for the Drama Lover

16 December 2010 10:02 PM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

It’s getting late in the season, and most of you (though probably not as many as you’d think) have already finished all of your holiday shopping. In the last minute rush, though, things get kind of foggy, and you’re more likely than ever to make woefully undercooked decisions that seem borderline psychotic the instant that ripped open wrapping paper reveals them to your friends and family. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t take risks, as most of the best presents are completely unexpected, and demonstrate that you trust in the receiver’s intelligence and sense of adventure (which might be worth it alone). Even if stores have everything on their wish list in stock, you might want to think twice. Titles here are linked to their Amazon pages.

Commission us: a library of kids' films

11 October 2010 7:33 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

We asked you to tell us what to write. Today, we present the beginnings of a kids' films library, with the 50 best family films by our critics, plus Michael Hann's own top choices

Gallery: our choice of the top 50 kids films

Why isn't there a recommended library of films for children, was the question @AdvancedDriver posed when we asked you to suggest the articles you wanted to read. "The recommendations should be thought-provoking and/or entertaining," @AdvancedDriver requested, though experience of sitting my pair in front of a movie suggests that if it's not entertaining, then no thoughts will be provoked. Now, this is a subject on which we're going to need your help, so while I'll start the ball rolling with some films that have worked in my home, please let me know the films that have captivated your kids. Surprising and unusual nominations will be especially welcomed, and »

Mad Men: season four, episode three

22 September 2010 2:45 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

A visit to Anna leaves Don devastated. So he heads to the only place close to being a home – the Scdp offices

Spoiler Alert: This blog is for those who are watching season four of Mad Men on BBC4. Don't read on if you haven't seen episode three – and if you've seen more of the series, please be aware that many UK viewers will not have done so …

Episode three: The Good News

"Nobody knows what's wrong with themselves, and everybody else can see it right away." Stephanie

Bad news, rather than good, for those of you worried that Mad Men is becoming the Draper show – as this proved to be one of the most Don-centric episodes yet. But from the moment Draper loosens his tie and heads down the Californian freeway towards Anna Draper's house, he becomes Dick Whitman once more. A relaxed, beer-glugging friend, rather than a whisky-shot fraud. »

Phillip French's classic DVD | Lola

18 September 2010 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

(1961, PG, Mr Bongo)

At the epicentre of the French New Wave were the Cahiers du Cinéma critics (Truffaut, Chabrol, Godard). But numerous talented auteurs were involved in that cultural explosion, among them Jacques Demy (1931-90), whose feature debut, Lola, was one of the glories of the time. Shot in lyrical widescreen monochrome by Raoul Coutard (immediately after he lit Breathless) and set in Demy's native Atlantic port of Nantes, this bittersweet, cleverly patterned film centres on a golden-hearted nightclub prostitute (Anouk Aimée) and the men whose journeys cross her life. Demy called it "a musical without music", but it invokes On the Town and anticipates his Les Parapluies de Cherbourg and Les Demoiselles de Rochefort, which also have unforgettable songs by Michel Legrand. The title refers to Lola Montès, the final movie by Max Ophuls, the film's dedicatee, and to Dietrich's Lola in The Blue Angel. Unforgettable here in top hat and basque, »

Toronto 2010: Catherine Deneuve, Gérard Depardieu's Potiche, Marion Cotillard's Little White Lies

16 September 2010 5:38 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Catherine Deneuve, Gérard Depardieu in François Ozon's Potiche You wouldn't believe it reading the vast majority of English-language publications, but there are actually a number of non-Hollywood, non-American, non-English-language movies being screened at the 2010 Toronto Film Festival. Below are snippets from four reviews of non-English-language movies. Takashi Miike's 13 Assassins: Takashi Miike doing Akira Kurosawa? Yes Please! 13 Assassins is not the goofy homage to Sergio(s) Leone and Corbucci that Sukiyaki Django Western was. Japan's most hard to pin down auteur re-invents himself once again to offer a mainstream audience an earnest and restrained look at vintage Samurai cinema with all the honour and fighting against all odds offered by classics like The Seven Samurai. Kurt Halfyard, Twitch.   François Ozon's Potiche, starring Catherine Deneuve and Gérard Depardieu: The fact that the family business produces umbrellas will of course recall Deneuve's performance in Jacques Demy's The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, »

Potiche: A French farce with feeling

5 September 2010 3:27 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Catherine Deneuve leads a blue-chip cast in a François Ozon screwball comedy which is arch, knowing and self-aware

Venice is this year becoming a festival notable for high drama and high camp, and so it proves again with this enjoyable, farcical French picture from the prolific master craftsman François Ozon, based on a 1980 stage play by Pierre Barillet and Jean-Pierre Gredy.

It's a wacky 70s-period screwball comedy with a blue-chip cast and a tone which is arch, knowing and self-aware but also somehow affectionate and even, I suspect, deeply serious about the indomitable spirit of France itself, in the queenly person of Catherine Deneuve. It is a veritable palimpsest of irony levels; perhaps only a French audience can fully respond to its nods and winks.

The British film industry might produce an equivalent, perhaps, by hiring Michael Winterbottom to direct a post-modernised screen adaptation of a Brian Rix farce, using »

Film: Review: Nanny McPhee Returns

19 August 2010 12:41 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The good news first: Nanny McPhee Returns, the follow-up to the moderately successful 2005 family comedy Nanny McPhee, does not replicate the original’s retina-searing color scheme, which was like watching The Umbrellas Of Cherbourg on grandma’s busted TV set. The bad news: Every other aspect of the movie is dialed up to the same blaring tint, from the aggressive whimsy of the CGI effects and James Newton Howard’s score to comedy built on a bedrock of poo jokes, hairy moles, and gooey substances that stick to characters’ shoes. As with the original, the presence of Emma Thompson »

Mm@M: Deneuve & Godzilla Gamera, Cinema Giants

10 August 2010 4:44 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

I never thought I'd see anyone on Mad Men shouting "Monster!" at a movie screen but that's why Mad Men at the Movies is great fun to write. You never know what's coming.

Episode 4.3 "The Good News"

In this episode, Joan focused for once (yay Christina Hendricks!) the worlds curviest office manager handles her confusing marriage with surprise tenderness and her career with less control than usual, her temper flaring. Meanwhile, Don (Jon Hamm) travels to see his first ex-wife and gets very bad news. He returns home early, ditching a planned Apaculpco vacation. Come the middle of the holiday afternoon, Lane (Jared Harris) and Don are already drunk and planning a boys night out. Don: [drunk, with mouth full] We're going to the movies.

Lane: Do you think we should?

Don: Does Howdy Doody have a wooden dick? [reading from newspaper] Zorba the Greek -- seen it, but would see it again. It's a Mad Mad Mad World -- no kidding. »
