Trailer For ‘Author: The Jt LeRoy Story’ Proves Truth is Stranger Than Fiction

20 July 2016 6:18 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Before Kristen Stewart, James Franco, Helena Bonham Carter, and writer-director Justin Kelly turn it into a narrative drama, this fall the documentary Author: The Jt LeRoy Story will arrive. Acclaimed since its Sundance premiere, Jeff Feuerzeig’s documentary follows a writer and actor who fooled the world with a man who identifies as transgender, tricking the rich and famous in Hollywood, the fashion world and elite literary circles. Ahead of a September release, the first trailer has now arrived.

We said in our review, “Author: The Jt LeRoy Story relives the literary hoax of the early aughts, the truly weird and out of control tale of Jt LeRoy. An allegedly gender-fluid HIV positive son of a West Virginia truck stop hooker, he rose to the heights of indie stardom befriending the likes of Courtney Love, Shirley Manson, Lou Reed, Michael Pitt, Billy Corgan and filmmakers Gus Van Saint and Asia Argento »

'MST3K' reboot lands 'Daily Show' alum as head writer

20 May 2016 1:34 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Tom Servo, Crow and the crew of the Mystery Science Theater 3000 reboot just got their Cyrano de Bergerac. MST3K head Joel Hodgson announced on his Kickstarter page that Elliott Kalan has signed on to be head writer for the series. For those unfamiliar, the show features robots making fun of bad movies with titles like The Slime People and The Incredible Melting Man. Kalan is a multi-Emmy winner and most notably served as head writer for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. “This has literally been my dream job since I was an adolescent. Other kids were sneaking out of the house to go drink beer in the park. I was sneaking into the basement to watch the midnight MST3K rerun on Comedy Central,” Kalan said on the site. MST3K was a cult favorite for years, running from 1988-99. It has since gone through different permutations with projects like RiffTrax and Cinematic Titanic. »

French Director Jean-Paul Rappeneau Gets Colcoa Tribute

15 April 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For Jean-Paul Rappeneau, the Los Angeles-based Colcoa film festival offers a sort of reverse homecoming — one in which the French director, best known for directing Gerard Depardieu in “Cyrano de Bergerac,” brings his childhood home to California audiences.

With “Families,” Rappeneau reconstructs the impressive mansion in Auxerre, Burgundy, where he spent the first 17 years of his life. “Oddly enough, it didn’t belong to us” the director explains over a cup of coffee in Paris. “That house was sort of my mother’s dream. She dreamed of a life that she hadn’t led, in Paris or in the films of Jacques Demy, and my father, who was a man from the country who had become an engineer, rented it to satisfy her.”

Rappeneau has just returned from Moscow, where audiences made the connection between “Families” — in which a businessman (Mathieu Amalric) revisits the family estate, tied up in litigation after the patriarch’s death, »

Exclusive: Lr Talks to Timur Bekmambetov About 'Hardcore Henry', 'Ben-hur' and More

7 April 2016 11:26 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Opening this Friday, April 8 is one of the more innovative action films you’re likely to see anytime soon when Hardcore Henry opens nationwide.

It’s the directorial debut by Ilya Naishuller, a Russian punk rocker-turned-filmmaker who caught the eye of Russia’s most successful filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) with the music video for his band Biting Elbows, and the two of them set out to create something similar for the big screen. (You can watch Ilya’s original video here, but Warning: it’s not really safe for work or for young kids.)

The Hardcore Henry of the title is a man who died but was brought back to life by his wife (Haley Bennett), who is then promptly kidnapped by a powerful warlord named Akan (Danila Kozlovsky) who sends his army of mercenaries to stop Henry from getting her back. Then there’s the mysterious Jimmy (Sharlto Copley »

The Fades: celebrating BBC Three originals

18 February 2016 6:52 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With great writing, a strong cast and a gripping story, Jack Thorne’s 2011 supernatural drama The Fades was one of the best…

According to former BBC Three controller Zai Bennett, fans of The Fades have themselves to blame for Jack Thorne’s superb fantasy drama not being recommissioned. We were too few and too old.

The BBC Three remit aimed to attract 16-34 year olds, Bennett explained at the 2012 Edinburgh International Television Festival. Because The Fades found more love among those with mortgages and middle-age spread than it did with fresh-faced teens and twenty-somethings, it didn’t fulfil that remit.

However much critical acclaim (plaudits from The Guardian, The Telegraph, some website called Den Of Geek) or however many awards (a Bafta for Best Drama, nominations for Best Writer, wins for Best Music and Digital Effects) The Fades received, the kids weren’t down so it had to go. »

How I Shot That: Dp Richard Henkels on Capturing a Confounding Life in Sundance Doc 'Author: The Jt LeRoy Story'

21 January 2016 1:00 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: 14 Films We Cannot Wait to See at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival Cinematographer Richard Henkels' experience in feature films is diverse, going from horror (“Condemned”) to action-adventure ("Mall") to PBS "American Masters." "Author: The Jt LeRoy Story" is one of two documentaries Henkels has at Sundance this year (the other is "American Epic"). It tells the story of Laura Albert, the 40-year-old punk rocker and phone sex operator who was the Cyrano de Bergerac behind literary wunderkind Jt LeRoy, the same Jt LeRoy who, in 2005, was revealed to not really exist. What camera and lens did you use? 80% of "Author" was shot on the Canon C500 with the Aja Box recorded at 4K, set at 320Asa with the Zeiss T1.5 Compact Primes. The rest was on the Canon 1Dc at 4K, 320Asa with older Nikkor Lenses that had the NovaFlex adaptor. Why was this the right camera kit for the job? »
