Nashville: Two Not Returning for Season Five on Cmt

23 June 2016 3:47 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

The long goodbye... Will Chase (Luke Wheeler) and Aubrey Peeples (Layla Grant) are unlikely to be part of the Nashville TV series cast in its fifth season, according to The Hollywood Reporter. This news comes less than two weeks after Cmt  picked up Nashville season five, after ABC abruptly cancelled the fan-favorite Country Music drama series.

THR says Chase and Peeples will probably be the only Nashville series regulars who won't make the leap to Cmt. Reportedly, talks with the other stars are going well, including Connie Britton, as well as Hayden Panettiere, whose future was in question after fourth season's cliffhanger finale.

Sunday's best TV: Top Gear; Wallander; Naked And Afraid

28 May 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Chris Evans and Matt LeBlanc reboot the motoring show, Wallander continues its long goodbye and there’s more pixellated survivalism in the Discovery series

9pm, BBC1

The long goodbye continues. The case pursued in Henning Mankell’s final crime novel, The Troubled Man – about Linda Wallander’s imposing new father-in-law – is low in the mix for now, with Kurt (Kenneth Branagh) instead trying to focus on a vanished young woman. The drama focuses on the detective’s disintegrating mind. His blanks and wobbles lead to more elegant pauses than ever, in a penultimate episode so underplayed it’s virtually subterranean.

Out of the Past: The Greatest 1970s Detective Movies

20 May 2016 12:26 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Whether they’re peeping on cheating husbands or reeling in runaway daughters, the cinematic detective, popularized in the ’30s and ’40s, can always be relied upon for a witty line or a sock in the jaw. Often, the detective is a man alone, searching through dark alleys for invaluable clues to some labyrinthine mystery. The detective is often the only soul who will do whatever it takes, no matter how hopeless the circumstances may seem. As Raymond Chandler wrote: “Down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean.” In the ’70s, the culture irrevocably changed, but the detective’s job stayed the same — if not perhaps a bit more complex.

The Nice Guys, the newest film from Kiss Kiss Bang Bang writer-director Shane Black, is out in theaters this week. In the film, a luckless private eye and a grumpy hired thug find themselves an unlikely »

Ten Things I Learned At The 2016 TCM Classic Film Festival

7 May 2016 1:12 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Well, another year spent in the company of classic cinema curated by the TCM Classic Film Festival has come and gone, leaving me with several great experiences watching favorite films and ones I’d never before seen, some already cherished memories, and the usual weary bag of bones for a body in the aftermath. (I usually come down with something when I decompress post-festival and get back to the working week, and this year has been no exception.) There have now been seven TCMFFs since its inaugural run in 2010. I’ve been lucky enough to attend them all, and this time around I saw more movies than I ever have before—18 features zipping from auditorium to queue and back to auditorium like a gerbil in a tube maze. In order to make sure I got in to see everything I wanted to see, I had to make sure I was »

Watch: Celebrate the Greatest Cinematography of All-Time With New Video Essay

28 April 2016 12:40 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, then there will never be a definitive list of the greatest cinematography, but for our money, one of the finest polls has been recently conducted on the matter. Our friend Scout Tafoya polled over 60 critics on Fandor, including some of us here, and the results can be found in a fantastic video essay below. Rather than the various wordless supercuts that crowd Vimeo, Tafoya wrestles with his thoughts on cinematography as we see the beautiful images overlaid from the top 12 choices.

“I’ve been thinking of the world cinematographically since high school,” Scout says. “Sometime around tenth grade I started looking out windows, at crowds of my peers, at the girls I had crushes on, and imagining the best way to film them. Lowlight, mini-dv or 35mm? Curious and washed out like the way Emmanuel Lubezki shot Y Tu Mamá También, »

Staring Down The 2016 TCM Classic Film Festival

24 April 2016 10:22 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

I live in Los Angeles, and my residency here means that a lot of great film programming-- revival screenings, advance looks at upcoming releases and vital, fascinating glimpses at unheralded, unexpected cinema from around the world—is available to me on a week-by-week basis. But I’ve never been to Cannes. Toronto, Tribeca, New York, Venice, Berlin, Sundance, SXSW, these festivals are all events that I have yet to be lucky enough to attend, and I can reasonably expect that it’s probably going to stay that way for the foreseeable future. I never attended a film festival of any kind until I made my way to the outskirts of the Mojave Desert for the  Lone Pine Film Festival in 2006, which was its own kind of grand adventure, even if it wasn’t exactly one for bumping shoulders with critics, stars and fanatics on the French Riviera.

But since 2010 there »

NYC Weekend Watch: Fassbinder Favorites, Buñuel, Queer Cinema, King Hu & More

22 April 2016 8:59 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

You’ve read of Rainer Werner Fassbinder‘s ten favorite films — now you can see them. The German titan’s beloved titles are celebrated in a new series: Johnny Guitar screens this Friday; Saturday offers Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, The Night of the Hunter, and the rarely seen The Red Snowball Tree; on Sunday, one can »

John Michael Mcdonagh declares 'War On Everyone'

22 March 2016 10:55 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The Guard and Calvary were two of my favorite films to release in their respective years. Both reel with a jet black sense of humor and western style morality play where various shades of grey face off in cessation. They also happen to be gorgeous, shot by Larry Smith (Gaffer/Chief electrician on Barry Lyndon/The Shining turned Only God Forgives/Bronson D.P) and composed in sickening symmetry. In short, I was ecstastic to meet the man behind it all, and his down to earth, silly, demeanor, ended up putting me at ease. John Michael McDonagh, talks about his third and bleakest feature film: War On Everyone

Did anything, such as something in the media, provoke the start of War On Everyone

There was no sort of big initializing point really. I guess having done The Guard with one kind of obnoxious cop, [that] I wanted to double down on that a little bit. »

A Gem from Rod Serling’s Night Gallery: “They’re Tearing Down Tim Riley’s Bar”

3 March 2016 10:50 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

In order to review and tell the story of Rod Serling’s “They’re Tearing Down Tim Riley’s Bar,” I must first eulogize the story of Serling and televison’s first true “Golden Age.” In his many years in the role of “television’s angry young man,” TV play-write and uber-personality Rod Serling strove for a quality in his own work that was, by and large, severely lacking from his own peers and contemporaries. For every classic produced for this new medium of entertainment and information – “Marty,” “The Long Goodbye,” “The Iceman Cometh” – there were dozens of other lighter, albeit sometimes entertaining,

The 20 Best Detective Movies of All Time

16 February 2016 2:00 AM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

From a pop culture perspective, private detectives stand for all that’s memorable about film noir. The indifference, the wittiness, and the moral ambiguity that define each urban knight has since become the stuff of parodied legend. We’re talking about the mediators between the crooks and the cops, the embodiment of back alley grayness that’s so tough to pin down. P.I.’s could cooperate with the law if needed, but they could just as soon do business with the bad guys for the right price. To a certain extent, that is – shamus work has always attracted the ignored and the ethical. The Wild West has mythical men with no name, The Asphalt Jungle has names with investigating licenses attached to them. Instead of a poncho and a ten gallon hat, they’re provided a fedora and trench coat.

The archetype has undergone many faces throughout Hollywood’s history, »

The Greatest Kidnapping Comedies of All-Time

4 February 2016 11:39 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

When asked about their inclination for kidnapping comedies, Joel Coen recently told Variety, “I’m not sure why. They are all very different. We should probably give that a rest.” He and Ethan Coen are responsible for three of the finest kidnapping comedies ever made, and are perhaps adding a fourth to their résumé this weekend.

The addition of comedy into a crime story is hardly a new prospect, but the kidnapping comedy is a wonderfully specific little nook in this often darkly funny cinematic world. The Coens practically own this genre — if you can call it a genre –having covered and re-covered it in such uniquely different ways.

Their fourth kidnapping comedy (although I doubt they would refer to any of these films as such), Hail, Caesar!, follows a Hollywood studio fixer (Josh Brolin) whose work life begins to unravel after the kidnapping of one of his biggest stars, »

Celebrated Cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond Passes Away Aged 85

4 January 2016 7:58 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Vilmos Zsigmond, the celebrated cinematographer behind such classics as The Deer Hunter and Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind, has died aged 85.

News of Zsigmond’s passing was confirmed by his long-time business partner Yuri Neyman, revealing that the Oscar-winner died on Friday in Big Sur, California.

After nurturing a series of low-key B-movies in Austria, his big break arrived in the form of Robert Altman’s McCabe & Mrs. Miller in the early 70s, before earning critical acclaim for his work on Close Encounters in 1977, along with The Deer Hunter the following year.
