‘Wakefield’ and ‘Abacus’ Lead Openers, But ‘Paris Can Wait’ Rules

21 May 2017 11:40 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This weekend, the entire specialized industry is huddled in Cannes in search of the next big things. On the home front, just three noteworthy films opened, each on a single Manhattan screen. Two of them, the Bryan Cranston-starring “Wakefield” and Steve James’ financial world set documentary “Abacus: Small Enough to Jail,” showed some life.

Eleanor Coppola’s “Paris Can Wait” had a promising second-weekend expansion, and looks to be the standout  over the next month and more. Still, results remain minor after a couple post-awards months led by “Gifted” and “The Zookeeper’s Wife.”

Opening

Wakefield (IFC) – Metacritic: 60; Festivals include: Telluride, Toronto 2016

$14,120 in 1 theater: PTA (per theater average): $14,120

Bryan Cranston has become an omnipresent force in TV, Broadway, and features. This film, opening many months after its September festival premieres, “Wakefield” puts him front and center as a Manhattan law partner who zones out of his suburban life »

Maurice at 30: the gay period drama the world wasn't ready for

19 May 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The elegant Merchant Ivory love story, starring a young Hugh Grant, was largely ignored on release but it’s now receiving a 4K restoration and might finally reach the audience it deserves

Last year, Merchant Ivory’s Howards End, now a quarter of a century old, got a 4K digital restoration that didn’t seem obviously required. Until, that is, you saw the result. Those ornate Edwardian interiors, the sea of rain-spattered umbrellas, that field of bluebells, all made newly sharp and iridescent – it seemed appropriate treatment for what stands as the quintessential work from a film-making team now synonymous with elegantly reserved costume drama. With Us distributor Cohen Media Group having bought up the Merchant Ivory library, one might have assumed A Room With a View would be next in line for this pristine treatment. The Remains of the Day, perhaps.

Interview: James Ivory on "Maurice" Turning 30

18 May 2017 12:15 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

By Jose Solís.

 

Can you believe Maurice came out 30 years ago? James Ivory’s film adaptation of E.M. Forster’s novel was released in the fall of 1987, a year after the Oscar winning A Room with a View. While it was never as celebrated as the former, throughout the years it’s come to be more highly regarded for its groundbreaking Lgbtq romance, and as the film that launched Hugh Grant’s screen career.

The tale of forbidden love between the title character (played by James Wilby) and a male servant (Rupert Graves) is filled with pithy dialogue, handsome actors and a then unparalleled sensuality when it comes to conveying gay romance. Its influence can be seen in countless films that came after it, yet for decades it remained the happiest of Lgbtq screen romances. That's a position I discussed with Mr. Ivory as the film is being re-released in »

This series showcases seven of the New Wave renegade’s works from his career breakthrough in the sixties: Take Aim at the Police Van (1960), an off-kilter whodunit; Youth of the Beast (1963), an explosive yakuza thriller; Gate of Flesh (1964), a pulpy social critique; Story of a Prostitute (1965), a tragic romance; Tokyo Drifter »

A.R. Rahman talks Viceroy’s House music

18 February 2017 4:02 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Viceroy’s House, directed by Gurinder Chadha is releasing nationwide on 3rd March 2017 and stars Hugh Bonneville, Gillian Anderson, Huma Qureshi and Manish Dayal. The film tells the true story of the final months of British rule in India and its release will coincide with the 70th Anniversary of the Independence of India and the founding of Pakistan.

The film is accompanied by a beautiful and moving score, composed by Oscar and Grammy winning maestro A.R. Rahman. Speaking in a recent interview, Rahman references Viceroy’s House:

“Gurinder’s expectation was to have something very classic, very rooted and at the same time universal. I’ve used the sarangi, a strings and brass orchestra, a lot of flute — mainly classical instruments.”

The official soundtrack for Viceroy’s House coincides its release with the film and will be available to buy on all digital outlets on Friday 3rd March. The album »

Viceroy’s House: Two sides of the story emerge in these new character posters

14 February 2017 6:05 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Two new character posters have arrived for British drama, Viceroy’s House and we can’t help thinking they have a link to Valentine’s Day. With Gillian Anderson gazing lovingly at her Husband, Lord Mountbatten (Hugh Bonneville) on one side and the young lover’s, Jeet and Aalia cosying up to each other.

Related: Viceroy’s House Trailer and Poster

Viceroy’s House is set in a time where men were seen to rule their women and these posters depict this in a blatant manner with both Lord Mountbatten and Jeet in regal, honourable stances ever so slightly in front of the ladies. Even though fitting for the time, to portray this on promotional posters in the 21st century makes them feel dated. Oh and while we are here does anyone else, after watching our previous trailer post for Viceroy’s House, think Gillian Anderson has »

Simon Callow webchat – your questions answered on chugging pints, Wagner and 44 years of acting

30 January 2017 6:11 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The actor and writer talked about Orson Welles, lost TV sitcom Chance in a Million, German nationalism, Jacqui Dankworth, Shakespeare and cellos

2.11pm GMT

It's been delightful if sometimes gruelling, webchatting to you all. Let's do it again sometime!

2.08pm GMT

Mike Thorne says:

I think it's quite important with Wagner to distinguish between German nationalism as espoused by the new German Reich, from Wagner's conception of a cultural phenomenon, which is a fundamental kind of Teutonic conception of life. Which is semi-mystical, and almost anthropological, with its roots as Wagner conceived of it, in pre-history. Whether this is an attractive or real thing or not is obviously a matter for discussion, but it's a different thing from a specific nationalism of a kind that Wagner was increasingly prevalent in the 19th century across Europe and beyond. Wagner was intellectually an extraordinary mix of influences, he was never as »

Sundance 2017. Correspondences #4

26 January 2017 11:17 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Call Me By Your Name Dear Josh,You asked me whether I’ve found my one film yet, the one that makes the festival experience worth remembering. And I’m pleased to report that with Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me By Your Name, I finally have. In fact, I was so taken with the film that I’ll dispense with the throat-clearing and get right to it.  Set in an expansive villa “somewhere in Northern Italy” in the summer of 1983, the film centers on Elio (Timothée Chalamet), an Italian-American Jewish teenager, who spends his days swimming by the river, going out with friends, transcribing music and just “waiting for the summer to end.” It opens with the arrival of Oliver (Armie Hammer), a Jewish-American academic who's come to help Elio's father (Michael Stuhlbarg) with his research. His arrival is a disruption; it shakes Elio in ways that he probably never anticipated. »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Call Me by Your Name’

23 January 2017 12:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As numerous are the ways in which Luca Guadagnino’s latest (and most personal) film, “Call Me by Your Name,” advances the canon of gay cinema, none impresses more than the fact that it’s not necessarily a gay movie at all. Rather, the “I Am Love” director’s ravishingly sensual new film — adapted from André Aciman’s equally vivid, 1983-set coming-out/coming-of-age novel — is above all a story of first love, one that transcends the same-sex dynamic of its central couple, much as “Moonlight” so recently did.

Acquired by Sony Pictures Classics shortly before its Sundance premiere, this Proustian account of an Italo-American 17-year-old’s transformative summer may not be as commercial as that film, but it ought to be a word-of-mouth art-house hit all the same — especially when talk turns to what teenage Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet) and American summer guest Oliver (Armie Hammer) do with a ripe peach. »

New Year's Babies. Start Fresh!

1 January 2017 7:44 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

I was an illustration major at university and one era we studied repeatedly was "The Golden Age". For illustrators that was roughly the 1900s through the 1940s. One of the the most sentimental traditions of this time was Jc Leyendecker's 'New Years Babies' covers. The babies were always white and cutesy but weren't always "happy" and sometimes politics entered the picture. Here is the 1917 painting to your left a full one hundred years ago wherein there's a scary hole where Europe should be. This diapered cherub is not at all sure he wants to arrive into this  (World War I was raging and would not end for another 23 months.)

The New Year's Baby tradition reminds us that whatever may be ending or happening, there are always opportunities for fresh starts. 2016 was a shit show but maybe a whole lot of really cool human beings that will one day be giants of the arts, »
