BBC Is Currently Airing One of the Best Gay Miniseries Ever, and No One Seems To Be Talking About It

9 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Tonight the fourth of five episodes of the BBC's miniseries "London Spy" airs, and there's a good chance if you don't live in the UK you had no idea the series even existed. But it does, and it's great and this is its synopsis: London Spy begins as the story of two young men, Danny (Ben Whishaw), gregarious, hedonistic, and romantic, falls in love with the asocial, enigmatic, brilliant Alex (Edward Holcroft). They live very different lives, Danny is from a world of clubbing and youthful excess, and Alex (it turns out) works for the Secret Intelligence Service, but just as they realize they are perfect for each other, Alex disappears. Danny, utterly ill-equipped to take on the world of espionage, decides to fight for the truth. Yes, it's a gay spy drama. But that's a reductive description, even if we admit that's what got us in the door. In the three episodes we've seen, »

“Against, against”: Creative Destruction with Albert Serra

20 November 2015 11:52 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

This interview was originally published online by Sight & Sound. It is being re-published on the Notebook in conjunction with Albert Serra's Story of My Death playing on Mubi in most countries in the world through December 14, 2015.If new movie masterpieces are proclaimed at each and every major film festival each and every year, the notable absence of adventurous, exciting and otherwise transgressive cinema amongst those lauded should inspire us to question not only the terms we use to describe films but also the standards to which we hold them.Catalan filmmaker Albert Serra, a transcendental minimalist who wields his camera like only a handful of fellow feature-film digital adventurers – among them Pedro CostaDavid Lynch and Michael Mann – is one of the few who produces work that truly creates a new encounter with the audience. His radically stripped-down, voluptuously shaggy adaptations of canonical writing – Cervantes in Honour of the Knights »

Citizen Jack #1

Written by Sam Humphries

Art by Tommy Patterson

Colored by John Alderink

Lettered by Rachel Deering

Published by Image Comics

Jack Northworthy is a loser. Once the mayor of the small town of Musk Lake, Minnesota, he now runs a dying snowplow business with a steady diet of alcohol and self-loathing. But Jack’s got a special friend named Marlinspike. He is a demon straight out of Hell, and he has a plan to get Jack elected president of the United States. Jack has got no idea how they are going to pull it off, but he plays along. Why him though? And what will it cost him? Political satire meets supernatural horror in this new Image series that explores the old truth that politics is a devil’s game.

Image is currently the reigning king when it comes to comics with over-the-top stories and flashy art, but »

NYC Weekend Watch: David Cronenberg, Classic 3-D, Mathieu Amalric & More

29 October 2015 5:56 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Museum of the Moving Image

Maurice Pialat‘s six-hour miniseries, Le maison de bois, will conclude the career-spanning retrospective.

“It Came from Within: A David Cronenberg Horror Weekend” brings the director’s classics to the big screen.

Film Forum

“Classic 3-D” offers three dimensions of repertory viewing, with titles such as Dial M for Murder and House of Wax. »

200 Greatest Horror Films (100-91)

25 October 2015 7:57 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Special Mention: C’est arrivé près de chez vous (Man Bites Dog)

Written by André Bonzel, Benoît Poelvoorde, Rémy Belvaux and Vincent Tavier

Directed by André Bonzel and Benoît Poelvoorde

France, 1992

Rémy Belvaux, André Bonzel, and Benoît Poelvoorde set out to make their first feature film with little resources and little money. In the tradition of filmmakers who can’t afford much film stock, the trio settled for a faux-documentary-style approach – the result is a high-concept satire of media violence that would spoof documentaries by following around a fictitious sociopath named Ben as he exercises his lethal craft. While the cinematic tradition of presenting villains as suave, charming, attractive, and intelligent individuals is nothing new, Man Bites Dog was still ahead of its time. Much like the great Hitchcockian villains such as Joseph Cotten in Shadow of a Doubt, Ben is a man of action and ideas. He expounds on art, »

200 Greatest Horror Films (120-111)

22 October 2015 10:57 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Special Mention: Clean, Shaven

Directed by Lodge H. Kerrigan

Screenplay by Lodge H. Kerrigan

1993, USA

Genre: Crime / Psychological Thriller

Lodge H. Kerrigan’s Clean, Shaven is not an easy film to watch. Kerrigan, who wrote, produced and directed this unsettling psychological thriller, traps us inside the mind of a madman for the entire viewing experience. Peter Winter (Peter Greene) appears to be a killer–even worse, a child killer–but not much about him is objectively clear, and we are never sure if what we are seeing is real or a product of his tormented imagination. The film heightens the tension by restricting its focus to Peter’s unsettling, confused, and angry view of the world. The most gruesome violence inflicted on Peter comes by his own hand. In the most unforgettable scene, Peter slowly mutilates his body in order to remove what he believes are a receiver in his »

The Last Witch Hunter movie review: burn it at the stake

21 October 2015 1:49 PM, PDT | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

If this were Law & Order: Black Magic, which it almost seems like it wants to be, it’d be a helluva lot more interesting than it is. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

First of all, why is Vin Diesel the last witch hunter? It doesn’t make any sense. There should be lots of witch hunters. It’s not like the need for them died out. Sure, Diesel’s Kaulder (K: the sexy new C) has been around since the Middle Ages, cuz a witch cursed him with immortality and stuff — bloody typical — but he was a witch hunter before that when he was still mortal. He doesn’t have superpowers or anything. He’s just a guy doing a job, and it’s a job that still needs doing, even in the 21st century. »

Nycc 2015: Interview with ‘WicDiv’ Colorist Matthew Wilson

16 October 2015 11:24 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

At New York Comic Con, I had the opportunity to chat with prolific colorist Matthew Wilson about his colors and process on The Wicked + the Divine and Phonogram, his relationships with various artists as well as get a sneak peek of the upcoming Black Widow series he is working on with writer Mark Waid (Archie) and artist Chris Samnee (Daredevil). Wilson first came to prominence with his colors on Phonogram: Singles Club with frequent collaborators Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie and has colored a variety of Marvel books, like Thor: The Mighty Avenger, Wolverine, and Secret Avengers. He recently finished a run on Daredevil with Waid and Samnee and is currently taking a break from the Eisner nominated WicDiv as guest artists draw and color this arc. Matthew Wilson is also the colorist on Phonogram: The Immaterial Girl and Paper Girls from Image Comics and Deadpool vs. Thanos from Marvel »

Truth Be Told Season 1 Review

16 October 2015 10:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One episode was provided prior to broadcast.

It was after the seventh time that NBC’s masterfully awful media player crashed on me a laborious eighteen minutes into the premiere of the new fall “sitcom” Truth Be Told, that I realized something: there are no four minutes in the universe that could save this show from the eighteen cringe-worthy ones that preceded it. So, I gave up. Yep, I’m admitting from the get-go that I haven’t seen all of Friday’s big premiere for the Mark-Paul Gosselaar-starring series, but it’s still probably far longer than most will make it through when the show debuts after NBC’s similar trainwreck, Undateable.

The new show tells the story of Mitch (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) and wife Tracy (Vanessa Lachey), who are the parents of a four-year-old daughter and act like it’s the first time they’ve seen a human »

[Fantastic Fest Review] The Brand New Testament

6 October 2015 11:21 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If you were to take the charm and playful visual language of Jean-Pierre Jenuet’s Amelie and pair it with a blistering satire of religious dogma, the end result would look something like The Brand New Testament, a new film from Belgian director Jaco Van Dormael. His previous feature, Mr. Nobody, starring Jared Leto as the last living human on Earth, also showcased a penchant for high concepts that veer towards the absurd rather than the literal. With his latest entry, Dormael is gunning for the big guy himself, God, portraying Him less as an all-powerful deity and more like an irritable grumpy man hellbent on making life miserable for us petty humans. In bringing life to these religious icons, he weaves a rich tapestry of conflicted characters whose unique problems become fodder for a truly holy upheaval of all that we know to be real.

'The Last Witch Hunter' aims to make witches more than broomstick monsters, says Breck Eisner

2 October 2015 2:27 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In the middle of November 2014, I descended deep underground with a handful of fellow entertainment journalists to visit the set of “The Last Witch Hunter.” Director Breck Eisner (“The Crazies”) sat down with us to explain his vision for a brand new branch of witch mythology. We’re talking the kind of mythology that will require books to be sold in stores to quench the thirst of hardcore lore nerds…like me. Hint, hint LionsGate. What about “The Last Witch Hunter” drew you to the script?  Breck Eisner: I loved the character Kaulder. As a kid [I] loved “Highlander.” It reminded me a bit of that, but it had this awesome element of witches and this eternal hunter who has been avenging the death of his wife and daughter to no emotional success. It was just a really challenging story to play in a genre movie and I was just looking forward to that challenge. »

Fantastic Fest 2015 Review: Lovemilla Gently Unfolds In A Wonderfully Bizarre Comic Universe

26 September 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Unfolding in a (slightly) alternate universe where people can turn into zombies after a single drink of alcohol, babies can be possessed by the Devil, and people can fly, Teemu Nikki's feature adaptation of a television series he created with Rikka Takila is a lovable yet odd beast indeed, a romantic comedy that offers neither explanation nor coherence for the bizarre creatures who inhabit its world. That is the movie's strength and also, to some extent, its limitation. At its core, Lovemilla explores a loving relationship between diner owner Aimo and his girlfriend Milla that has reached a turning point. They live with her alcoholic zombie-parents, who are not bad people at all, except for their poor housekeeping skills and low ambition. Like any young...

Interview: Director David Yarovesky on The Hive

14 September 2015 4:42 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Summer camp takes a sinister turn in David Yarovesky's The Hive, playing in theaters for one evening only tonight courtesy of Fathom Events and Nerdist Industries. Ahead of The Hive's special theatrical release, Daily Dead caught up with co-writer/director David Yarovesky.

On The Hive's long journey to the big screen:

David Yarovesky: It’s been two years. People talk about it like it’s a marathon, but for me it’s been a two-year sprint. We started in July or August of 2013. I cranked out eleven drafts before we actually shot anything. Eleven drafts in three or four months. I’m really anal about it being as good as it possibly can be. I’d just be cranking them out and working through the kinks and making it better every time.

So then we went straight into shooting and after that it was like 20 weeks of editing. »

Venice 2015: 'The Danish Girl' review

7 September 2015 2:48 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆ Following his Oscar-winning turn as Stephen Hawking in James Marsh's The Theory of Everything (2014), British actor Eddie Redmayne makes his bow on the Venice Lido in Tom Hooper's The Danish Girl (2015), complete with another transformative portrayal - this time of a Danish painter who slowly realises his true identity as a woman. It's the 1920s and Einar Wegener (Redmayne) is a moderately successful landscape painter who obsessively paints the same vista from his childhood time and again: a bog, a line of trees, the mountains beyond. His wife Gerda (Alicia Vikander) is a thoroughly modern type who paints portraits and smokes cigarettes in her cigarette holder.

Gerda is generally supportive of her husband but longs for her own breakthrough as well as a child. They live in their spacious artist's garret and seem happily in love, lustily enjoying each other with healthy regularity. However, Einar hides a secret. »

Venice 2015: 'The Endless River' review

7 September 2015 12:51 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆ Some linguistic determinism is at work in Oliver Hermanus' The Endless River (2015), a leaden-paced South African melodrama about the repercussions of a horrific crime. Percy (Clayton Evertson) has just been released from prison after serving four years for armed robbery. He is met by his loyal wife Tiny (Crystal-Donna Roberts), a waitress at a gas station diner. They live with her fiery Aunt Mona (Denise Newman) who is frankly sceptical of Percy's stated intention to reform and become a good husband. Meanwhile, Gilles (Claire Denis regular Nicolas Duvauchelle), a Frenchman arrived in South Africa with his young family, strikes up a friendship with Tiny at the restaurant where he goes to eat.

At home with his children and wife, there is an air of tension at the dinner table, and in the light of this, it is apparent that the flirting with Tiny is indicative of some dissatisfaction at home. »

Tiff 2015: ’11 Minutes’ teaser packs a lot of action into a short time

3 September 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Need proof that a lot can happen in a short amount of time? Well the teaser for Polish film 11 Minutes certainly serves as that proof. Writer/director Jerzy Skolimowski (Essential Killing) is making the festival rounds this year with his new film that stars Richard Dormer, Andrzej Chyra, Wojciech Mecwaldowski, Dawid Ogrodnik and Paulina Chapko. Here’s the synopsis:

A jealous husband out of control, his sexy actress wife, a sleazy Hollywood director, a reckless drug messenger, a disoriented young woman, an ex-con hot dog vendor, a troubled student on a mysterious mission, a high-rise window cleaner on an illicit break, an elderly sketch artist, a hectic paramedics team and a group of hungry nuns. A cross-section of contemporary urbanites whose lives and loves intertwine. They live in an unsure world where anything could happen at any time. An unexpected chain of events can seal many fates in a mere 11 minutes. »
