Aaron Sorkin Was Pushed to Write a ‘Steamy’ Sexy Scene for Nicole Kidman in ‘Malice’ and Refused

Aaron Sorkin Was Pushed to Write a ‘Steamy’ Sexy Scene for Nicole Kidman in ‘Malice’ and Refused
Aaron Sorkin is currently making the press rounds in promotion of his directorial debut “Molly’s Game,” and he recently shared an eye-opening story with USA Today about one of his earliest gigs as the screenwriter of “Malice.” Sorkin had just come off the success of “A Few Good Men” when he re-teamed with Columbia Pictures to write the Alec Baldwin and Nicole Kidman-starring thriller, which was being directed by Harold Becker (“The Boost,” “Sea of Love”).

According to Sorkin, Becker specifically requested him to write a “steamy” sex scene for Nicole Kidman. “Early on in my career, I wrote a movie that I’m not very proud of at all, it just turned into a mess,” Sorkin said, “Alec Baldwin and Nicole Kidman were in it. The director, very close to the start of photography, decided that we were missing a sex scene between Alec and Nicole.”

It Came From The Tube: The Midnight Hour (1985)

There’s an in between zone that parents often look for if they’re easing their kids into horror. If they’re fans of the genre themselves, the urge to take the tykes from Scooby-Doo to The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is very tempting. I was one of the fortunate ones who was allowed to cut out the middleman and dive right into the heady stuff. So it was then that I missed out on a great bridge between the two extremes, The Midnight Hour (1985), ABC’s successful bid to get the Thriller-crazy crowd on their side.

Originally airing November 1st as part of The ABC Friday Night Movie (really? There was no Thursday slot open to make it for Halloween?), The Midnight Hour fought off CBS’ Dallas for its first half and NBC’s Miami Vice for the back, but those shows weren’t the ideal demographic anyway – this

BFI Review – Nine 1/2 Weeks (1985)

Nine 1/2 Weeks, 1985.

Directed by Adrian Lyne.

Starring Mickey Rourke and Kim Basinger.

Synopsis:

Two lovers begin a passionate affair that toys with sadomasochistic fantasies and dominance…

Watching When Harry Met Sally during the BFI’s ‘Love’ Season, it’s always worth a chuckle when Harry confidently asserts that Sally’s problem is how she hasn’t had “great sex”. Released three years prior, Nine ½ Weeks, starring Mickey Rourke and Kim Basinger, is only interested in “great sex”. Nine ½ Weeks was the Fifty Shades of Grey of its time and, rather than become a bestseller, it become a box-office flop in the Us with critics only coming around to its charms after its release. The central relationship between Rourke and Basinger, though a little creepy at times, is often balanced by Basinger’s comfortable laugh and relatable shock at some of his suggestions. Ignoring the clear gender imbalance, there

Ellen Barkin on ‘The Cobbler’ and Why New York is a City for Billionaires

Ellen Barkin on ‘The Cobbler’ and Why New York is a City for Billionaires
Ellen Barkin embodies the forces of gentrification in “The Cobbler,” Tom McCarthy’s new comedy about the changing face of New York City.

It’s a role that Barkin, whose whiskey voice still betrays a hint of her Big Apple upbringing, has spent a life preparing for by observing the changes to the city she still calls home.

“It’s a big f—ing deal what’s happening across the country and in big cities like L.A. and New York,” she said. “They’re not even cities for millionaires any more. They’re cities for billionaires. When real estate is $4,000 a square foot it changes everything about a city.”

The Cobbler” opens this Friday and centers on a Lower East Side shoe repairman (Adam Sandler) who discovers he can assume the identities of his clients when he slips on their footwear. Barkin plays an unscrupulous real estate developer who

Al Pacino on Greta Gerwig, Burger-Flipping and Barry Levinson’s ‘The Humbling’

Al Pacino on Greta Gerwig, Burger-Flipping and Barry Levinson’s ‘The Humbling’
In “The Humbling,” one of his two new movies (along with “Manglehorn”) having their North American premieres at the Toronto Film Festival, Al Pacino plays a legendary actor in career freefall. But talk to Pacino for a while about his characters and his craft, and it’s clear that one needn’t harbor any concerns about life imitating art.

When he first read the script for “The Humbling,” which was adapted by Buck Henry and Michael Zebede from the Philip Roth novel, Pacino called the movie’s director, Barry Levinson, and told him he thought the only way to play the role was to find the humor in it. “I can’t help it: it struck me as funny,” Pacino recalls over lunch at Toronto’s Ritz-Carlton Hotel. “This idea of an actor who’s been doing this his whole life wanting to quit because he’s lost his talent
