Blue Jasmine – review

28 September 2013 4:08 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Cate Blanchett is superb as a socialite fallen on hard times in Woody Allen's homage to Tennessee Williams

"Anxiety, nightmares and a nervous breakdown; there's only so many traumas a person can withstand before they take to the street and start screaming." Awards season is declared officially open as Cate Blanchett becomes an early frontrunner for best actress with this magnificent portrayal of a woman on the edge.

A former New York socialite whose life has imploded in the wake of her husband's imprisonment (à la Bernie Madoff), Jasmine has been forced to park her Louis Vuitton luggage in the incongruous surroundings of her adoptive sister's San Francisco apartment, with corrosive results. Attempting to "move on" and make a new start (she is a past master of reinvention), Jasmine is finally out of her depth as she careers between ill-fitting employment, ill-judged social climbing and abysmal interpersonal relations. Meanwhile, »

10 best music moments from Woody Allen films

27 September 2013 3:39 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Ivan Radford 30 Sep 2013 - 07:03

Ivan gives the soundtrack from Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine a listen, and provides a rundown of the filmmaker's 10 best music moments...

You can tell immediately when you're watching a Woody Allen movie. Not just from the opening credits (Windsor Light Condensed on black title cards) but from the music. Woody loves the stuff - he'd rather play clarinet with his band than go to the Oscars. He loves it so much that he joins the list of directors such as Quentin Tarantino and Martin Scorsese who are known for using popular, pre-existing music in their soundtracks. The man has directed an astonishing 43 films in his career. Just seven of those have original scores.

Allen started his career with none other than Marvin Hamlisch, who would go on to score The Spy Who Loved Me. Working on Bananas after Take The Money And Run, »

Fading Gigolo Trailer: Woody Allen, Pimp

13 August 2013 10:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It's hard out there for a pimp, but nobody tell Woody Allen: The 77-year-old plays a flesh-peddler in John Turturro's new film Fading Gigolo, and his sole stud is 56-year-old Turturro. What kind of sexual shenanigans has Turturro scripted for himself here? Well, a threesome with Sofia Vergara and Sharon Stone, for starters. (Nice work if you can get it!) As one of the Woodman's few screen forays in a production he didn't direct, this seems like a fun, loose outing for him; oddly enough, he's co-starred with Sharon Stone in several of those forays (like Antz and Picking Up the Pieces) and they're reunited once again here. It's like that opening scene from Stardust Memories — where Stone cameoed in her first screen role as a young woman Woody wants — had a happy, fruitful ending! »

Greta Gerwig shines as a privileged drifter struggling to grow up in a film she co-scripted with Noah Baumbach

Greta Gerwig, a Californian educated in New York, emerged from that low-budget area of American independent cinema known for its stumbling verbosity as "mumblecore", first making an impression in the 2008 movie Hannah Takes the Stairs as a would-be playwright with a temporary job in Chicago. Noah Baumbach's parents were writers. Raised in the Manhattan literary world, he was educated at Vassar, the prestigious Ivy League college that went co-educational in 1969, and established himself as a writer-director in 2006 with the semi-autobiographical The Squid and the Whale. His leading characters both male and female are spiky misfits, deliberately alienating themselves from their families. Although his genre is comedy, laughter isn't always his object.

Gerwig first worked with Baumbach in his 2010 film Greenberg, giving an outstanding performance as a sad Los Angeles dreamer with musical ambitions, »

'Stardust Memories', Nguyen Van Lem, Groucho and Dorrie

9 July 2013 1:38 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I'm a huge fan of Federico Fellini's 8 1/2, in fact I'd count it among my favorite films of all-time. I'm also a huge fan of Woody Allen's work and for these two reasons alone I felt it was about time I watched Allen's Stardust Memories, which is about as close to a satisfying remake of Fellini's classic as you're likely to get. Though I vastly prefer Fellini's film and found Stardust to be a little too overbearing, I found great joy in the visuals and Allen's embracing of that certain "something" that makes Fellini's movie so "cool", for lack of a better word, and inviting. Allen took Fellini's film and made it his own, which is to say it's filled with paranoia and Allen's signature skittishness. I considered just compiling a series of stills from the film, but instead opted for only two along with »

What I Watched, What You Watched #200

7 July 2013 8:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It's here, the 200th edition of the "What I Watched" column and thanks to the July 4 holiday, my week was light with theater trips limited to one -- The Way, Way Back. Happily, it's one of the better movies I've seen this year and a possible top ten of the year contender, though I suspect it will end the year as an honorable mention. At home I watched Woody Allen's Stardust Memories, Andrei Tarkovsky's Stalker and four-and-a-half-hours of Criterion's Blu-ray presentation of Claude Lanzmann's Shoah, which is to say I still have another four-and-a-half-hours to go, not to mention the more than three hours that make up the three additional films in the set before I can review it. I'm on it though. I also caught the final two episodes of the third season of "Game of Thrones" and enjoyed it quite a bit. I'm particularly fascinated »

What are You Watching This Weekendc

5 July 2013 4:44 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July here in the States and to those of you elsewhere I simply hope you had a great Thursday. As for this weekend, my weekend watchlist is a little up in the air as I just received Woody Allen's Stardust Memories and Andrei Tarkovsky's Stalker from Netflix. I expect, at the very least, to get to Allen's film, but I'm also looking to finish watching Season Three of "Game of Thrones". A couple days ago I finally saw the big "red wedding" episode everyone was talking about so I'm only a couple episodes away from finishing the season. However, this may also just end up being a weekend for relaxing... I'm not sure. How about youc »

Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine trailer released: this time it's serious

10 June 2013 4:08 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Woody Allen has turned his back on comedy again for his new film Blue Jasmine, which stars Cate Blanchett as a pampered wife who loses it all

Woody Allen has never been liberal with his advance plot details, so trailers always put a bit of flesh on his moviemaking bones. The arrival of Blue Jasmine's promo clues us in that – shock! horror! – Allen has gone back to his first and truest love – Serious Drama. Having found unlikely commercial success with a string of tourist-bus comedies (Midnight in Paris, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, To Rome with Love), Allen has reached back into his own creative past with this new one: a teary, sisterish neo-Chekhovian piece which looks to have reassembled elements of Husbands and Wives, Interiors and Another Woman.

The trailer shows off Cate Blanchett front and centre, doing a decent stab at a Judy Davis-esque too-many-cigarettes, edge-of-sanity rasp: she »

Review: The title is wishful thinking in Almodovar's flat, unfunny 'I'm So Excited!'

7 June 2013 12:40 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ah, the "early, funny ones." That seemingly innocent, but bitterly loaded, phrase for the evolved artist's simpler, less conflicted juvenilia was coined by Woody Allen in his 1980 film "Stardust Memories" to playfully antagonize fans with limited patience for his tonal experimentation. He was hardly the first nor the last filmmaker to look down his nose at his own foundational work, even as he backslid towards less risky creative territory in years to follow. Rarer is the established auteur who exhibits an active hankering for his own "early, funny ones," whether or not his audience is demanding the same -- but »

Helen Hanft, Favorite of Woody Allen, Dies at 79

4 June 2013 4:20 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Helen Hanft, the comedic actress who became a favorite of such writer-directors as Woody Allen, Paul Mazursky and Tom Eyen, died of intestinal complications on May 30 in New York. She was 79.

Born in the Bronx on April 3, 1934, she attended the High School of Performing Arts and began her theatrical career as a pioneer of experimental theater at such venues as La Mama Etc. and Caffe Cino.

Known for her loudmouth persona, she often played eccentric, flamboyant, raunchy characters in Tom Eyen comedies including “Sarah B. Divine,” “Areatha in the Ice Palace” and “My Next Husband Will Be a Beauty” as well as “Why Hanna’s Skirt Won’t Stay Down,” “Women Behind Bars,“ “The Neon Woman” (in which she co-starred with Divine), and “The White Whore and the Bit Player.” She also had a great personal success in David Rabe’s “In the Boom Boom Room” at Joseph Papp’s Public Theater. »

A Peek Into the Soul of the Great Cinematographer Gordon Willis (Videos)

22 May 2013 9:36 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

  Gordon Willis is regarded by all of his peers as one of the greatest cinematographers in the history of film, and for many as the greatest of all time, period. Meeting with him only served to have him rise in our esteem. Without wanting to use hyperbole, between lensing "The Godfather' trilogy, many of Woody Allen's best films (including "Annie Hall," "Manhattan," "Stardust Memories," "Interiors" and others) and several master thrillers for Alan J. Pakula ("All the President's Men," "Klute," "The Parallax View," "The Devil's Own" and others), Gordon Willis practically »

The Lords of Salem

19 March 2013 8:48 AM, PDT | Planet Fury | See recent Planet Fury news »

Directed by: Rob Zombie

Written by: Rob Zombie

Featuring: Sheri Moon Zombie, Bruce Davison, Ken Foree, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Judy Geeson, Dee Wallace, Patricia Quinn

"What the hell, Rob Zombie?" That was the question verbalized by more than one audience member during the recent SXSW screening of The Lords of Salem, Zombie's latest flick.

Certain artists find themselves stuck with, and perhaps weighed down by, the expectations of their fans. Rob Zombie is such an artist. After moving from music to film, Zombie found a certain success by making movies with a singular retro exploitation aesthetic and delivering them consistently enough that he created a brand. And that's a valuable thing.

So the fact that The Lords of Salem, a somewhat abstract, glacially paced film that's seemingly everything a "Rob Zombie" flick is not, causes a certain confusion is absolutely understandable. The audience at the screening I attended expected a »

Deadly Blessing Blu-ray review

18 March 2013 7:24 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Ryan Lambie 19 Mar 2013 - 06:54

One of Wes Craven's less prominent early movies makes its Blu-ray debut. Here's Ryan's review of the 1981 horror, Deadly Blessing...

In the early 1970s, Wes Craven made the leap from academic to filmmaker, working at the sleazier end of the movie industry with director and producer Sean S Cunningham on films with titles like Together, Honey Pie and Hot Cookies. It was with his horror films The Last House On The Left (1972) and The Hills Have Eyes (1977) that Craven became recognised as a director in his own right, and their shocking subject matter and violence gained him a considerable amount of notoriety among critics and censors.

Although Craven continued to dabble in exploitation cinema after The Hills Have Eyes (he served as cinematographer on The Evolution Of Snuff in 1978), the end of the 70s saw him gradually shuffle towards the mainstream; 1978's Stranger In Our House »

Skyfall; Everything or Nothing: the Untold Story of 007; To Rome With Love; Savages

After the shambles of Quantum of Solace (I still have no idea what that title meant), it was touch and go whether the Bond franchise, so spectacularly revivified by Casino Royale, actually had a future in the 21st century. Enter secret weapon Sam Mendes who, 50 years after the screen debut of this very British screen icon, has ensured that 007 has more bite, relevance and popularity that at any time in his changeable career.

Focusing first and foremost on story and character but without skimping on the spectacular action set pieces, Skyfall (2012, MGM/Fox, 12) establishes a template for a new era of Bond movies that acknowledges the past while looking towards the future, balancing the "orgy of nostalgia" provoked by the appearance of an Aston Martin with a notable lack of gadgets (goodbye invisible cars, hello snippy »

'Dexter' Season 8 casts Charlotte Rampling as ...

24 January 2013 10:23 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Charlotte Rampling, a veteran British actress, has been cast in a key role for "Dexter's" eighth season, which is probably the final season for the hit Showtime drama.

EW reports that Rampling will play the recurring role of "a neuro-psychiatrist who specializes in working with young psychopaths and profiling criminals in unorthodox ways." The role will have a significant impact on the Season 8 story.

U.S. audiences probably best know Rampling from her work in Woody Allen's "Stardust Memories" or co-starring with Paul Newman in "The Verdict." She also appeared in the 2011 film "Melancholia."

"Dexter" returns early this year -- Sunday, June 30 is when the show comes back. It is being used as a lead-in for new Showtime drama "Ray Donovan," starring Liev Schreiber as a problem-solver to the rich and famous. »
