When Actors Stop Acting And Start Living A Role

17 April 2016 4:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway argues that method acting is often unnecessary…

This week it was revealed that Jared Leto sent pornography and condoms to his Suicide Squad co-stars in preparation for his role as the Joker. When I did that with my work colleagues I got arrested, but it turns out to be Ok if you’re an Oscar winning actor. It does also highlight the issue of when acting crosses the line into living a role.

There is a long and not so proud history of actors going above and beyond to immerse themselves in the character they are playing to ensure a great performance.

Daniel Day-Lewis is currently not looking for acting work as he believes it would be hard to top his performance as the title character in Lincoln, during which he would send his co-stars text messages in character as Abraham Lincoln; I do hope Sally Field »

Rolling Thunder Midnights April 8th and 9th at The Moolah

30 March 2016 8:36 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“You learn to love the rope. That’s how you beat ’em. That’s how you beat people who torture you. You learn to love ’em. Then they don’t know you’re beatin’ ’em.”

Rolling Thunder (1977) screens Midnights next weekend (April 8th and 9th) at The Moolah Theater and Lounge (3821 Lindell Blvd, St. Louis, Mo 63108) as part of  Destroy the Brain’s monthly Late Night Grindhouse film series.

Paul Schrader followed his Taxi Driver screenplay with the one for Rolling Thunder, a gritty revenge thriller directed by John Flynn in 1977. Similarities abound as both are about Vietnam vets who are ticking time bombs pushed to the brink by the violence they’ve come home to. But Rolling Thunder’s plot eventually veers from character study into a Death Wish-style vigilante thriller. Like Taxi Driver, it leads slowly toward a cathartic bloodbath finale. Rolling Thunder is highly regarded by fans and critics alike, »

Meryl Streep and Dustin Hoffman in Kramer vs. Kramer: the On-Set Drama Behind the Landmark Oscar-Winning Film

29 March 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Actors have difficult moments making films all the time, but news that Meryl Streep and Dustin Hoffman feuded on the set of Kramer vs. Kramer is a far bigger deal. We're talking about two of the most respected actors of their generations, with 26 Oscar nominations between them (her: 19; him: 7). When you're dealing with two Hollywood and Broadway heavyweights of that caliber, it sounds like a real-life clash of the titans. But it's important to remember that in 1978, it just wasn't that way. In the adaptation of his upcoming biography, Her Again: Becoming Meryl Streep, published by Vanity Fair, author Michael Schulman »

The Best of Movie Poster of the Day: Part 13

12 February 2016 12:19 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Above: Us one sheet for Knight Of Cups (Terrence Malick, USA, 2015); designer: P+A.Leaps and bounds ahead of the competition, the beautiful new poster for Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups was by far the most popular poster (tallied in likes and reblogs) that I have posted on my daily poster Tumblr since last October. Unveiled nearly a whole year after the first poster for the film premiered at last year’s Berlin Film Festival (that which made my top ten posters of 2015), the new poster retains the arcane and antique feel of that design—not to mention the palm trees—while making it only moderately more commercial with its image of star Christian Bale (albeit upside down and barely recognizable) haloed by a giant harvest moon.Sadly, much of the past month or two has been spent commemorating those we lost: Jacques Rivette, Haskell Weller, Ettore Scola, artist »
