Archie Panjabi on leaving The Good Wife, her future on The Fall and what's next for her

8 May 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Archie Panjabi will be urging on The Good Wife at the BAFTA Television Awards on Sunday - where she's also handing out an honour - but we imagine it might be a bit strange for her. Because after six seasons as investigator Kalinda, Panjabi has left the hit show. What better time for a catch-up?

We met up with Archie at BAFTA (where else?) to chat about why she chose to leave The Good Wife, her future on The Fall, what's next for her and whether we'll ever see her on EastEnders...

Are you excited about Sunday?

"Yeah, I think we've got a chance! And I've never handed out an award for BAFTA before so I'm really chuffed that they asked me and quite excited. It's weird, because I'm British, and yet I've done all the American ceremonies and this is my first time doing the British one! It's quite exciting. »

The Criterion Collection announces June Blu-ray releases

22 April 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Criterion Collection has announced its new release line-up for June with five new titles set for a Blu-ray release in June.

On July 7, it will release Robert Siodmak’s The Killers (1946) and Don Siegel’s The Killers (1964). On July 14, it will release Alain ResnaisHiroshima mon amour, Jan Troell’s Here’s Your Life, and Carroll Ballard’s The Black Stallion. And on July 21, it will release Stephen FrearsMy Beautiful Laundrette and Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom.

The Killers

Ernest Hemingway’s simple but gripping short tale The Killers is a model of economical storytelling. Two directors adapted it into unforgettably virile features: Robert Siodmak, in a 1946 film that helped define the noir style and launch the acting careers of Burt Lancaster and Ava Gardner; and Don Siegel, in a brutal 1964 version, starring Lee Marvin, Angie Dickinson, and John Cassavetes, that was intended for television but deemed too »

London — “Penny Dreadful” actress Billie Piper has joined the cast of London-set film noir “City of Tiny Lights,” which starts principal photography on Monday.

Pete Travis, whose credits include “Vantage Point,” “Endgame” and “Dredd,” directs the pic, which Protagonist Pictures will be selling at Cannes. Icon Film Distribution will be releasing the film, which will shoot for six weeks in London, in the U.K. and Ireland next year.

Criterion July 2015 Releases Include 'Moonrise Kingdom', 'Hiroshima Mon Amour' and 'The Killers' (x2)

15 April 2015 3:48 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Criterion has announced their July 2015 line-up of releases and it's a rather impressive one with the most notable title being a brand new release of the Alain Resnais' classic Hiroshima mon amour (July 14), a film I have never seen and there's a small bit of shame in that fact considering its influence on so many filmmakers and its importance in establishing what is now referred to as the French New Wave. The release is not without new features as Criterion gives it the Blu-ray upgrade: New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray Audio commentary by film historian Peter Cowie Interviews with director Alain Resnais from 1961 and 1980 Interviews with actor Emmanuelle Riva from 1959 and 2003 New interview with film scholar Fran?ois Thomas, author of L'atelier d'Alain Resnais New interview with music scholar Tim Page about the film's score Revoir Hiroshima . . . , a 2013 program about the film's restoration »

Top Gun: Why Tom Cruise's flying actioner is an unintentional gay classic

18 February 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Looking back, it's hard to believe nobody noticed. Released on May 16, 1986, the week after robo sci-fi Short Circuit and the week before naff spook-sequel Poltergeist II: The Other Side, Top Gun promised jet-fuelled action, wry romance and six-packs galore. Few would argue that it failed to deliver, earning its stripes as a slick action flick ("MTV goes to war!" saluted Time magazine) and cementing Tom Cruise as an A-list star. It was unstoppable at the box office, too, raking in $176 million to become the highest-grossing film of the year.

Flash forward to the present day, though, and Cruise's action vehicle has achieved a different kind of cultural status, topping the pantheon of unintentional Lgbt milestones. Steeped in testosterone, packed with lingering glances and spotlighting that volleyball scene, its irrefutable homoeroticism has become the stuff of movie legend. And while it's almost impossible to imagine that anybody could have made a »

Love Is All review – nebulous look back at big-screen love

12 February 2015 1:30 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

There’s little love lost for Kim Longinotto’s slapdash documentary montage

Valentine’s Day is upon us, but the release of this film by Kim Longinotto is a disappointing and uninteresting way of marking that fact. It is a miscellaneous montage of film clips from the past century, accompanied by music from Richard Hawley, on the vague subject of … love. There are archive fragments from documentaries, romances, and grisly and puritanical sex-education films (of the kind anthologised by the BFI in its boxset The Joy of Sex Education). There are bits from the 1929 silent movie Piccadilly starring Anna May Wong, and from My Beautiful Laundrette. It seems as if anything and everything could have been included. But the selections and juxtapositions are neither interesting nor insightful – certainly not compared to, say, Julien Temple’s recent essay London: The Modern Babylon or Charlie Lyne’s study of teen movies, Beyond Clueless. »
