Looking for Mr. Goodbar (1977)
“John Heyman passed away in his sleep today, Friday the 9th of June,” the statement read.
His son, David Heyman, is the producer of the Harry Potter films, among many others.
Heyman’s World Film Sales pioneered the foreign pre-sales of films on a territory by territory basis.
John Heyman produced films including “The Go-Between” (1971), family sci-fi film “D.A.R.Y.L.” (1985) and “The Jesus Film” (1979). He was also an uncredited executive producer on David Lean’s 1984 E.M. Forster adaptation “A Passage to India.”
Over the course of his career he arranged financing of more than $3 billion to co-finance films including “Awakenings” and “The Odessa File” (at Columbia), “Edward Scissorhands,” “Home Alone” and “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” (Fox), “Victor/Victoria” and
Diane Keaton, New Yorker, 1978
Diane Keaton is to receive the American Film Institure Lifetime Achievement award on June 8th. We should be pleased, not only deserved because Keaton is a true legend, but also because highly accomplished comic actors are so often overlooked by awards bodies. Think of Keaton and Annie Hall comes immediately to mind along with other Woody Allen films, as well as comedies like The First Wives Club, Father of the Bride and Something's Gotta Give. But few actresses have a
Annie Hall turns 40 this year and Diane Keaton will be the recipient of the AFI Life Achievement Award next month (June 8th to be exact). Keaton, a perennial A-lister, reminds us every few years about the extent of her talents. She's been enjoying recent success in The Young Pope and her upcoming projects Hampstead and Book Club sound promising at least. Since Annie Hall turns 40 this year so too will Keaton's other '77 triumph, Looking For Mr. Goodbar.
Though Goodbar is remembered for Keaton in a dramatic role (which this author will pay attention to here at a later date), the film is definitely what we'd call in contemporary parlance "problematic". I recently watched Goodbar for my own podcast, but amongst the reprehensible moments I finally understood why so many women of a certain age (i.e. my mother) swooned over Richard Gere - who we get
A low-key but promising first feature from Mackie Burns, winner of the Berlinale Golden Bear in 2005 for his short Milk, it is essentially an expansion of his 11-minute Happy Birthday to Me (2013),...
“Diane Keaton is one of the most beloved leading ladies of American film,” said Howard Stringer, chair of the AFI Board of Trustees. “Peerless in her mastery of both comedy and drama, she has won the world’s heart time and again by creating characters of both great strength and vulnerability. Her career as a director and producer is even further evidence of her passion for the art form and her seemingly boundless talents.”
The tribute special will return to television on TNT for its fifth year, to be followed by an encore presentation on TCM.
Over five decades on screen, Keaton’s achievements include winning best actress

In the Red Lights district of 1917 New Orleans, legal prostitution is on the wane as a surge of conservative, religious rhetoric begins to sweep through the country. Nell (Francis Faye) owns a booming brothel in the famed Storyville district, and one of her most notable employees is Hattie (Susan Sarandon), whose twelve-year-old daughter Violet (Brooke Shields) has grown up within the house.

I’m not speaking from direct experience here, you understand, but I would imagine that old whores, cold or otherwise, could be pretty entertaining, not only in their professional
The film's complex ingénue is the beautiful, blond Katie Kampenfelt (Britt Robertson), an 18-year-old girl who starts blogging, for her own kicks, the year following her high school graduation. Falling in love with a college film professor (Justin Long) as well as the married husband (Christian Slater) of couple she is the nanny for,

Mavericks Conversation With… Denzel Washington and Antoine Fuqua
Denzel Washington is one of the film world’s most prominent leading men, known best for his galvanizing portrayals of both real-life figures (Malcolm X, The Hurricane, American Gangster) and fictional characters (Philadelphia, Devil in a Blue Dress, Flight). Washington returns to the Festival starring in The Equalizer, an intense thriller that reunites him with director Antoine Fuqua (Brooklyn’s Finest, Shooter, Olympus Has Fallen) for the first time since their Oscar-winning collaboration on Training Day.
1. The Talented Mr. Ripley
Ripley is a great movie, but it’s long on suspense and deception and short on romance. Ripley connives and insinuates his way through a whole gaggle of actual and imagined romantic partners – both female and male – and even those who manage to survive to the final reel are most assuredly a bit more guarded after dating him. Side note: did you realize that the guy that Ripley romances and then murders is Derek from Smash? Seriously, one of the best casts ever assembled, and also Gwyneth Paltrow.
2. Looking for Mr. Goodbar
Nonetheless, I’m the anointed “Madonna expert” on this week’s episode of The Experts, a YouTube game show that tests savants on a specific area of expertise and pits them against other geeks. I’m competing with a Batman expert and a Melrose Place expert, so whether you’re a dead-eyed Madonna zealot or a low-key Daphne Zuniga fan, there’s something here for you.
To celebrate her big day, I ask you: What’s the most underrated Diane Keaton performance?
I already hear your shouts of Crimes of the Heart, but I’m going with a simpler, lighter film: Manhattan Murder Mystery. Although I love Mia Farrow in Woody’s movies, Diane takes to his often
In or around 1920 or '21 the painter and propagandist El Lissitzky painted a small, unassuming gouache picture for reproduction in a magazine or journal with the words "Rosa Luxemburg" lettered in, then painted over, to make a once-declarative statement (political solidarity with the case of Rosa Luxemburg) instead a quiet, self-effacing comment, though unintentional, about the absurdity of making art a weapon or tool of politics. El Lissitzky knew even back then, in another century, before Wikileaks or Edward Snowden, that he was trafficking in shit way above his head.
Thirty years ago, the actor teamed with other then-rising stars -- including Glenn Close, William Hurt, Kevin Kline and Jeff Goldblum -- in director and co-writer Lawrence Kasdan's Motown-scored comedy-drama about college friends drawn back together to mourn a suicidal peer (played by Kevin Costner, who went unseen in the version ultimately released).
"I kind of did a little bit afterwards," the friendly Berenger tells Zap2it of maintaining contact with fellow cast members from the modern classic that cast him as television star Sam Weber, magazine-cover famous for playing "Magnum, P.I."-like action hero J.T. Lancer.
"I remember getting together with Bill Hurt in New York a couple of times, and there were phone calls after that. And of course, I
