The Ladies of The Platinum Life Tease Major Drama: "Everyone Is Bound To Get Played Every Now and Then"

The Ladies of The Platinum Life Tease Major Drama:
Things are about to go down!  These ladies may look like glam goddesses but don't get it twisted because they are not to be trifled with. Seven women means seven strong personalities ready to defend their honor and their men when s--t hits the fan.  Of course these ladies kept it classy but that doesn't mean they didn't have their fair share of arguments to work through. "You're gonna know what everyone's opinion is and where everyone stands," La'Myia Good shares. "We classy but verbal war is a lot more interesting." As for who may be the ones to look out for, there may be a few feuds to wrap your head around. "You are definitely going to see [drama] with...

Meet the Ladies of Bad Girls Club Season 17

Why am I just finding out about Bad Girls Club right now? I mean I know I’ve read that title before but season 17? Really? Why has no one told me about this guilty pleasure? From what I understand season 17 of Bad Girls club is doing an “East meets West” kind of a thing and they’re already gearing up for the third episode tonight. Seven women, kind of like The Real World have been picked to live together in the same house. While the tagline isn’t “see what happens when people stop being polite and start getting real,” that’s

Isabelle Huppert, French Legends, and Oscar Stats

by Nathaniel R

Are you biting your nails yet? No prediction for this year's Best Actress shortlist can come without some degree of "I could be getting this very wrong!" nerves. We've been Oscar watching for a long time and it's genuinely never looked this open this late in the game (with the possible exception of 2003 but for nearly the opposite reason). If Best Actress is not a five-way lock up by now (and it often is) it's usually at least settled but for a minor battle between two women for the "just happy to be nominated" fifth spot. This year is different. Seven women remain strong and precursor supported and virtually any combination of five names seems possible as long as you include both Emma Stone (with the reliable boost of leading a Best Picture frontrunner) and Natalie Portman (with the reliable boost of Oscar's deep-deep love for mimicry

Given to See: A Tribute to Shigehiko Hasumi

  • MUBI
The following text is an excerpt from an essay commissioned by the specialist publishing house Hatori Press (Japan) for a tribute to the great critic, scholar and teacher Shigehiko Hasumi on the occasion of his 80th birthday (29 April 2016). Other contributors to this book (slated to appear in both Japanese and English editions) include Pedro Costa, Chris Fujiwara and Richard I. Suchenski. Beyond Prof. Hasumi’s many achievements in criticism and education (he was President of the University of Tokyo between 1997 and 2001), his ‘method,’ his unique way of seeing and speaking about films, has served as an immense inspiration for a generation of directors in Japan including Kiyoshi Kurosawa and Shinji Aoyama. The online magazines Rouge (www.rouge.com.au) and Lola (www.lolajournal.com), co-edited by Martin, provide the best access to Hasumi’s work in English (see references in the notes below).Leos Carax and Shigehiko Hasumi.

Seven women brutalized by former policeman Daniel Holtzclaw have filed a civil lawsuit against the disgraced cop. The women claim a top brass within the Oklahoma City Police Department shrugged off a sexual assault complaint filed against the officer in 2013, thereby allowing the patrolling predator to remain on the streets where he continued raping women while on the job. The March 4 federal lawsuit alleges Holtzclaw - who was convicted in December of 18 criminal counts, resulting in a 263-year prison term - attacked an African American woman during the fall of 2013.

Globo’s Emmy-Winning ‘Side By Side’ Travels to China (Exclusive)

Globo’s Emmy-Winning ‘Side By Side’ Travels to China (Exclusive)
In a further step toward the conquest of the Chinese TV market, Brazilian TV giant Globo has just licensed period telenovela “Side by Side,” winner of a 2013 Intl. Emmy Award, to China Central Television (CCTV), the country’s leading state-owned network group.

Deal marks a significant move, given the notorious difficulty of market penetration in China for foreign TV productions. It also strengthens Globo’s close relationship with CCTV, which previously acquired further Globo programming such as classic telenovela “Isaura-Slave Girl” and mini-series “Seven Women.”

Side by Side” is expected to debut in August, dubbed in Chinese, reaching China, Hong Kong and Macao.

“Re-investing in a Globo’s drama, CCTV recognizes the high quality of our production and its ability to reach different cultures around the world,” said Raphael Correa Netto, Globo executive director of International Business.

“This new licensing in China proves that Globo continues to grow on Asia.

News.

Canadian documentarian Peter Wintonick has passed away at the age of 60. Aaron Cutler has some words and links on the artist.

The Festival Internazionale del Film di Roma, also known as the Rome Film Festival, has announced its awards from a Jury chaired by James Gray. Kiyoshi Kurosawa's Seventh Code was among the winners, picking up Best Director and Best Technical Contribution.

The Seventh Art's latest video mag is now online, featuring interviews with João Pedro Rodrigues and Corneliu Porumboiu, among others. What's next for Joe Dante? A horror-comedy starring Anton Yelchin titled Burying the Ex (it's the sort of cheesy title we'd only let him get away with!).

Blu-ray Review: Stunning Criterion Set For Kieslowsk’s ‘Three Colors’

Chicago – Movies don’t get much more personally influential than Krzysztof Kieslowski’s “Blue,” “White,” and “Red,” collectively known as the “Three Colors” trilogy, and recently released in one gorgeous box set from The Criterion Collection. As we all do, I was a bit concerned that perhaps my memory of these films had been enhanced with time, but I found the opposite — they’re even better with age and stand as one of the best film achievements of not just their era but of all time. I can’t say enough about Kieslowski’s talent as a director and, while some may point to the “Decalogue” films or “The Double Life of Veronique,” I’ve always considered “Three Colors” to be the greatest accomplishment of one of history’s greatest directors. And Criterion has done one of their most notable acquisitions justice with one of their best releases of the year.

The Criterion Collection Announce November Blu-ray Slate Including Three Colors Trilogy

Today, The Criterion Collection officially announced their upcoming slate of films for the month of November and it is quite an assortment of some of cinema's most revered films and beloved filmmakers.

Of the five releases (three standalone releases and two box sets), two of these are new additions to the collection. Sidney Lumet's 1957 acclaimed courtroom drama 12 Angry Men and Krzysztof Kieslowski's amazing Three Colors Trilogy. This is being released as a three-disc box set comprised of all three films (Blue, White and Red) which not only serve to symbolize the French flag, but they also represent the tenets of the French revolution (liberty, equality and fraternity).

The other three releases provide some much requested upgrades to some of Criterion's most beloved DVD releases. First, there is Jean Renoir's The Rules of the Game, a French gem from 1939 that is equal parts critique and comedy. Next up

New Release: Three Colors Trilogy Blu-ray and DVD

Release Date: Nov. 15, 2011

Price: DVD $59.95, Blu-ray $79.95

Studio: Criterion

Krzysztof Kieślowski’s Blue, White and Red receive the Criterion treatment this November.

Legendary Polish filmmaker Krzysztof Kieślowski’s Three Colors trilogy, a boldly cinematic trio of stories about love and loss, was a defining event of the art house boom of the 1990s. The films — Blue (1993), White (1993) and Red (1994) — were named for the colors of the French flag and stand for the tenets of the French Revolution: liberty, equality and fraternity. But that only hints at the film’s beauty, richness and humanity.

Set in Paris, Warsaw and Geneva, Blue, White, and Red (Kieślowski’s final film) range from tragedy to drama to comedy. They follow a group of ambiguously interconnected people experiencing profound personal disruptions.

Marked by intoxicatingly lush cinematography and memorable performances by such actors as Juliette Binoche (Chocolat), Julie Delpy (Guilty Hearts), Irène Jacob (Beyond the Clouds) and
