Author: Competitions

To mark the release of Rules Don’t Apply on 14th August, we’ve been given 2 digital download codes to give away.

It’s Hollywood, 1958. An aspiring young actress, songwriter, beauty queen and devout Baptist virgin, Marla Mabrey (Lily Collins: Mirror Mirror, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Love Rosie), and her young, ambitious, deeply religious Methodist chauffeur, Frank Forbes (Alden Ehrenreich: Hail, Ceasar!, Blue Jasmin), both struggle with the absurd eccentricities of the wildly unpredictable billionaire they work for, Howard Hughes (Warren Beatty: Dick Tracy, Bonnie & Clyde, Reds, Shampoo). Their attraction to each other not only puts their religious convictions to the test, but also defies Hughes’ #1 rule: no employee is allowed to have any relationship whatsoever with a contract actress. Hughes’ behavior draws them both deeper into his bizarre world and their lives are changed forever.

Please note: This competition is open to »

How Today’s ‘Nonsensical’ Blockbuster Filmmaking Can Learn a Lesson From American Movies of the ’70s

7 June 2017 8:25 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Film critic Charles Taylor’s first collection of essays, “Opening Wednesday at a Theater or Drive-in Near You: The Shadow Cinema of the American ’70s,” explores the rich history of ’70s-era American filmmaking through a unique lens, opting to highlight some of the period’s underseen and often underappreciated gems. As one of the most fruitful times in American filmmaking, Taylor understands why certain features — including offerings from such respected filmmakers as Jonathan Demme, Walter Hill, and Irvin Kershner — didn’t quite make it big at a crowded box office, but he’s also eager to give them their due.

Told with an eye towards the current state of cinema — a blockbuster-driven machine that Taylor calls “nonsensical” and contributing to “the destruction of the idea of content” — the book is a loving look at some forgotten gems and the power of moviemaking that can often be ignored. In our excerpt from the book, »

Lee Grant to Receive Split Screens Festival’s Inaugural Legacy Award

25 May 2017 1:01 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Lee Grant: splitscreensfestival.com

Actress, director, and author Lee Grant will be honored this year at the Split Screens Festival. According to an announcement from the television fest, Grant will receive its first Legacy Award, which pays tribute to “an individual whose career has had a lasting impact on television.” Split Screens will present the award to Grant on June 5, in partnership with AMC Networks.

One of Grant’s first films, 1951’s “Detective Story,” earned her an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress. But her success was short-lived. In 1952 the House Un-American Activities Committee — aka the Communist Witch Hunt Club — ordered Grant to testify against her husband, playwright Arnold Manoff. She refused and was blacklisted as a result.

Luckily that wasn’t the end of her career. She won an Emmy in 1966 and for her turn as Stella Chernak on nighttime soap “Peyton Place” and an Academy Award for her supporting role in “Shampoo.” After making her comeback as an actress, she shifted gears. She “channeled her political awareness into a career as a director of socially aware fiction and nonfiction films, tackling such hot-button subjects as workplace discrimination (‘A Matter of Sex’), transgender identity (‘What Sex Am I?’), poverty and Reaganomics (‘Down and Out in America’), and sexism in medical treatment (the TV movie ‘Nobody’s Child’)”, the Split Screens website details. She won a Director’s Guild Award for “Nobody’s Child,” becoming the first woman ever to receive the honor.

Lee Grant is the history of television,” Split Screens Creative Director and TV/film critic Matt Zoller Seitz told Women and Hollywood. “She’s one of the most important trailblazing women in both film and television, and the way she remade herself over and over again is inspiring.” “Lee has done it all,” he added.

Mulholland Drive,” “Dr. T & the Women,” and “Defending Your Life” are among Grant’s other screen credits. In 2014 she published her memoir, “I Said Yes to Everything.”

The Split Screens Festival is June 2–8, 2017 at the IFC Center in New York City. Head over to the fest’s website for more information.

'Snatched' Review: Amy Schumer, Goldie Hawn Almost Save So-So Raunch-Com

11 May 2017 10:45 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

There have been complaints in early reviews about Snatched being disposable junk. Huh? Let's back up a minute. The comedy stars Goldie Hawn and Amy Schumer as mom and daughter – those words alone should mean something for film enthusiasts, and not just because Mother's Day weekend. Schumer, the baby-faced bad girl of 2.0 comedy, is teaming up with Hawn, a laugh-inducing golden girl since she won an Oscar for her breakthrough role in 1969's Cactus Flower. So, yes, we'll allow that this female raunch-com is built on a script by Katie Dippold (The Heat, »

Goldie Hawn Retrospective to Screen at the Quad Cinema in NYC

11 April 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Goldie Hawn in “Private Benjamin

The upcoming mother-daughter comedy “Snatched” marks Goldie Hawn’s first film since 2002’s “The Banger Sisters.” To celebrate the end of Hawn’s 15-year sabbatical, the Quad will hold a retrospective of the Oscar winner’s films, a press release announced.

The Golden Goldies retrospective will see beloved Hawn films like “Private Benjamin,” “Swing Shift,” “Death Becomes Her,” and “The First Wives Club” screen on 35mm.

“No Hollywood actress in recent memory has come closer than Goldie Hawn to capturing the ebullience and whip-smart comic timing of the great screen comediennes of the ’30s and ’40s, a modern Joan Blondell or Carole Lombard,” the release states. “Though she won an Academy Award for one of her first roles (in 1969’s ‘Cactus Flower’), critics have tended to underestimate the depths of [Hawn’s] talent. The forthcoming film ‘Snatched’ marks her long-awaited return to the screen after a 15-year absence, and we’re celebrating the occasion with a greatest-hits retrospective, a veritable masterclass in the delicate art of cinematic comedy.”

It’s great that Hawn’s contributions to cinema are being recognized. However, while researching the Golden Goldies films as well as Hawn’s entire filmography, we noticed the actress has never worked with a female film director. From what we can tell, she has only collaborated with a woman director once, on a 2013 episode of the kids show “Phineas and Ferb.” Sue Perrotto co-directed the ep.

This is disappointing, but not a complete surprise. Last year Cosmopolitan published a story detailing how many big-name actors have never worked with a woman film director. Among them are Sean Connery, Sylvester Stallone, Ben Stiller, Matt Damon, Tom Cruise, and Tobey Maguire. And to be fair to them and Hawn, there are plenty of actresses who have never appeared in a woman-helmed film. Shailene Woodley, for example, has not appeared in a feature film directed by a woman

Still. We wish both male and female power players would follow Jessica Chastain’s lead. “I’m looking to work with a female filmmaker every year,” she told Variety. “That’s my goal. They’re not given the same opportunities so if I have any influence in choosing a film or a script or finding a director I’m absolutely going to make a difference. That doesn’t mean I’m excluding men — it means I need some balance in my life.”

And she’s achieving it; Chastain has worked with female directors like Kathryn Bigelow, Liv Ullmann, and Susanna White. Her most recent collaboration with a woman director is Niki Caro’s “The Zookeeper’s Wife.”

The Golden Goldies retrospective will be May 6–11 at the Quad in New York City. The featured films and their synopses are below, courtesy of Quad Cinema.

“Death Becomes Her”

Robert Zemeckis, 1992, 104m, U.S., 35mm

Sun May 7 & Mon May 8

When glamorous narcissist Meryl Streep steals her fiancé Bruce Willis, Hawn finds revenge in an elixir of youth (and immortality) supplied by a seductively devilish Isabella Rossellini. Rivalry escalates to murder as Hawn and Streep battle it out in the land of the undead in this cult black comedy about all-consuming vanity.

The First Wives Club

Hugh Wilson, 1996, U.S., 103m, 35mm

Mon May 8

Spite never sleeps in this gleefully vindictive comedy about getting even and the bonds of sisterhood. Hawn stars opposite Bette Midler and Diane Keaton as a once-acclaimed actress plagued by ageism and out for revenge against her ex-husband and his perky new muse. But acrimony eventually gives way to a new sense of liberation, culminating in an ever-endearing rendition of Lesley Gore’s anthem of female independence.

Overboard

Garry Marshall, 1987, U.S., 106m, 35mm

Wed May 10

Wertmüller’s “Swept Away” reimagined as big studio farce, with Hawn’s shrill heiress mistreating blue-collar carpenter Kurt Russell, who then proceeds to enact romantic revenge after she’s afflicted with amnesia. Despite the retrograde sexual politics, the chemistry is palpable and the comic timing immaculate.

Private Benjamin

Howard Zieff, 1980, U.S., 109m, 35mm

Wed May 6 & Thur May 11

After husband Albert Brooks dies on their wedding night, spoiled rich girl Hawn is convinced by military recruiter Harry Dean Stanton to join the U.S. Army, where she comes up against a tough-as-nails C.O. Eileen Brennan. Both Hawn and Brennan were nominated for Academy Awards in this beloved box-office hit.

Seems Like Old Times

Jay Sandrich, 1980, USA, 100m, 35mm

Tue May 10 & Thu May 11

Hawn hits her comedic stride in this irresistible Neil Simon farce as a characteristically zany public defender torn between district attorney husband Charles Grodin and her ex, Chevy Chase, a writer charged with bank robbery. Things escalate towards a fever pitch when she decides to represent him in court.

Shampoo

Hal Ashby, 1975, U.S., 110m, Dcp

Mon May 8 & Wed May 11

The dream team of Ashby, screenwriter Robert Towne, and actor-producer Warren Beatty set their biting farce and undisputed ’70s classic on the eve of Nixon’s 1968 electoral landslide, with over-sexed, in-demand, and increasingly vexed hairdresser Beatty juggling frustrated girlfriend Hawn, taxing client Lee Grant, ex-girlfriend Julie Christie, and potential business partner Jack Warden as America lurches to the right.

The Sugarland Express

Steven Spielberg, 1974, U.S., 110m, 35mm

Sat May 6 & Mon May 8

After losing their baby son to the state, small-time crooks Hawn and William Atherton snatch him right back and go on the run, with seemingly every law enforcement officer in Texas in hot pursuit. Spielberg’s first feature refines the technical mastery of Duel, but Hawn’s performance as an exasperated, manically determined mother gives this picture a more resonant pathos.

Swing Shift

Jonathan Demme, 1984, U.S., 100m, 35mm

Sun May 7 & Thur May 10

When hubby Ed Harris ships off to fight WWII, housewife Hawn finds herself via a factory job — and a fling with hunky trumpet player Kurt Russell. Despite her contentious relationship with her director, Hawn displays her greatest emotional range here, and Demme’s deft touch for humanist comedy shines through. Featuring Christine Lahti, Fred Ward, and Holly Hunter.

David Reviews Hal Ashby’s Being There [Criterion Collection Blu-Ray Review]

26 March 2017 3:00 PM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

Ever since Warner Brothers released their 30th Anniversary edition Blu-ray of Being There back in 2009, I’ve been tempted to add the disc to my home library. I can recall several occasions where I actually had the case in my hand, and at least one where I took what I would normally consider that first decisive step toward the checkout line, ready to finalize the purchase. But lingering suspicions that this film would eventually find its way into the Criterion Collection always managed to pry the item out of my fingers and back onto the shelf. A few months ago, my reluctance was vindicated by the announcement that Being There would sure enough soon bear a Cc spine number, and this past week, it finally became available to take home for the contemplation of all of us who “like to watch.”

Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher Honored at Public Memorial Service

25 March 2017 2:48 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Friends, family and fans have gathered together to celebrate the beautiful lives and legacies of Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher with a public memorial service at the Freedom Theater at Forest Lawn Cemetery Hollywood Hills on Saturday. The late mother-daughter duo died just one day apart from each other back in December.

Watch: Todd Fisher on How Billie Lourd Is Coping With Tragic Family Deaths: She's 'a Pretty Powerful Gal'

The memorial, which was also live-streamed on DebbieReynolds.com, was organized by Debbie's son and Carrie's brother, Todd. While speaking with Et earlier this week, the producer anticipated that there wouldn't "be a dry eye in the house" -- and he wasn't wrong.

Once all guests were seated in the theater, Todd came out onstage to welcome local members of the Coast Guard in, who helped kick off the memorial. "My mother would have liked that," Todd revealed. "This entire thing I'm calling a show, not a memorial »

Read Cult Director Hal Ashby’s Long Lost, Final Script ‘Vital Parts’

16 March 2017 8:45 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Legendary filmmaker Hal Ashby has no shortage of classics to his name — “Harold and Maude,” “The Last Detail,” “Shampoo,” “Being There” and more — and ’70s American cinema would not be the same without his contributions. But it seems he had another project that never saw the light of day.

Friend and former co-worker Michael Dare recovered “Vital Parts.” The script, which has been lost for 30 years, was the cult director’s adaptation of Thomas Berger’s novel of the same name.

Scott Reviews Robert Altman’s That Cold Day in the Park [Masters of Cinema Blu-ray Review]

27 February 2017 6:10 PM, PST | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

Robert Altman builds his films like dystopian prisons, convincing his residents they have the run of the place while working to ensure they can’t escape. When he actually buckles down for a psychological thriller (3 Women) or locked-room drama (Come Back to the Five and Dime, Secret Honor), any departure from the comedic tone we usually expect from him is balanced by a psychological continuity. His films consistently show that you can never really run away from your problems, and you’re inevitably due to return to them.

That Cold Day in the Park opens in a city so generic, I took the English-accented cast at face value and assumed we were somewhere in the U.K. Here, in a well-appointed apartment, lives Frances (Sandy Dennis), so entombed in the memory of her deceased parents that all her friends (and would-be suitors) are twice her age. She entertains them and »

Christopher Nolan banned Jon Peters from Man Of Steel set

12 January 2017 12:17 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

David Crow Jan 13, 2017

Controversial producer Jon Peters suggests he made tens of millions on Man of Steel while Christopher Nolan banned him from the set.

Jon Peters has had one of the most infamous and oddly-inspiring rises to power in Hollywood history. Once a hair-dresser bad boy who was supposedly the inspiration for Warren Beatty’s Shampoo, Peters somehow found himself as Barbara Streisand’s lover/producer on the A Star Is Born remake, and then a well-regarded producer who, along with Peter Guber, presided over classic 1980s blockbusters like Batman, Flashdance, and An American Werewolf In London. He also was the first guy to attempt to 'reboot' Superman before that jargon existed in the 1990s… mind you, his idea was to have Nicolas Cage with flowing locks to star in it while fighting a giant spider, but you know… he was still first.

Bright Lights: 15 Surprises in the Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher Documentary

8 January 2017 8:14 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Bright Lights, the documentary about Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds that debuted on HBO Saturday, was filled with major revelations about the life of the Hollywood icons — but some of its best moments and most memorable lines came by far quicker.

Here are 15 of the most-surprising moments in directors Alexis Bloom and Fisher Stevens’ superb documentary.

1. Reynolds and Fisher were so in sync, they even wore the same shoes in one scene. The sandals were different colors, for what it’s worth.

2. Fisher’s home with Reynolds was built by Robert Armstrong, who was in King Kong. The two lived there for 20 years, »

A Tribute to Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds

7 January 2017 9:32 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

2016 claimed a long list of entertainers, but the grim reaper’s most unexpected one-two punch came between the final two holidays with the death of movie icons Carrie Fisher on December 12 and her mother Debbie Reynolds a mere 36 hours later. With the premiere of the documentary about the pair, “Bright Lights” on HBO this weekend, we at the Geeks site thought we should take a look at their considerable contributions to film.

Let’s start with Carrie, who was born in Hollywood, USA on October 21, 1956, the daughter of Debbie and singer/actor Eddie Fisher. She appeared on stage with her mother throughout the late 60’s and early 70’s, even getting her first small screen credit in the 1969 TV movie “Debbie Reynolds and the Sound of Children”. It wasn’t until 1975, when she would make her big screen debut opposite Warren Beatty (quite an arrival) in Hal Ashby’s hit Shampoo. »

The Week in Star Wars – Carrie Fisher obituary, Rogue One passes $700 million, original ending revealed and more

3 January 2017 4:21 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

On December 23rd, Carrie Fisher boarded an aeroplane from London to Los Angeles and suffered from a heart attack. She had just completed the European tour of her book. Four days later, she passed away at the age of 60.

Fisher was raised into the Hollywood industry. Her mother, Debbie Reynolds, was the star of screen having found fame at the age of 19 in Singin’ in the Rain and her father was pop star Eddie Fisher. She was born on October 21st 1956, just a few years after Reynolds became a star. The two would develop a close bond, captured brilliantly in a photo where Fisher, just six years old, watches her mother perform on stage.

As a child Fisher was known as the “family bookworm”, but an opportunity to star on stage alongside her mother in Irene meant that she never graduated. She moved to London where she enrolled in Central School of Speech and Drama, »
