Jonathan Demme to Receive Visionary Award in Venice

16 hours ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Director Jonathan Demme, who this year released "Ricki and the Flash" starring Meryl Streep as a rocker mom who lets down her kids, will receive the Persol Tribute to Visionary Talent Award at the 72nd Venice Film Festival (September 2 through 12). The awards ceremony to confer the Persol Tribute to Visionary Talent Award 2015 to Jonathan Demme, who is the President of the Orizzonti Jury, will be held on Thursday September 3rd at 3:00pm. Demme's long and storied career goes all the way back to the 1970s, through "Crazed Mama," "Melvin and Howard" and more, and into 1980s comedy "Something Wild," 1991 Best Picture winner "The Silence of the Lambs," "Philadelphia," remakes "The Truth About Charlie" and "The Manchurian Candidate" and his more idiosyncratic late-career efforts, including "Rachel Getting Married," "A Master Builder" and now "Ricki and the Flash."

Jonathan Demme to Receive Visionary Talent Award in Venice

20 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jonathan Demme will receive the Persol Tribute to Visionary Talent Award at the 72nd Venice Film Festival it was announced Friday (Aug. 28) by La Biennale di Venezia and Persol.

The Oscar-winning director, who is serving as President of the Orizzonti Jury at the festival, will receive the honor at a ceremony on the second afternoon of the festival (Sept. 3) in the Sale Darsena (Lido di Venezia).

Jonathan Demme is part of that generation of cinephile auteurs who revolutionized Hollywood in the ‘70s,” said Alberto Barbera, Director of the Venice Film Festival.

“From the cultured reinterpretation of genres in his early films, to the development of a personal film style deeply rooted in the individual, to his systematic incursion into documentary filmmaking distinguished by his innovative approach, Demme has brought to life a vivid gallery of characters against the background of an exuberantly pop American landscape that harks back to the »

Hannibal: farewell to the best bloody show on TV

27 August 2015 12:01 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

After three gripping and gory seasons, Bryan Fuller’s singular series has come to an end. In the lead up to the final ever episode, we take a look at the elements that made it such a beautiful, disgusting and messed-up show

This article contains images from the show that some may find distressing.

Never has eating people looked so good as on NBC’s Hannibal, but the show had all the reasons to be a failure. When books are made into films, and films made into TV shows, people are usually sceptical. There is precedent to say that adaptations are awful ideas, let alone adaptations of successful adaptations: the 1991 film The Silence of the Lambs was faithful to the 1988 Thomas Harris novel and the Oscar count alone suggests the film did pretty well, but its successors – Hannibal, Red Dragon, Hannibal Rising – weren’t received quite as warmly.

Hannibal season 3 episode 12 review: The Number Of The Beast Is 666

27 August 2015 1:01 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Hannibal season 3 appears to be gearing up towards a bloody finale to rival even the spectacular end of season 2...

This review contains spoilers.

3.12 The Number Of The Beast Is 666

This week’s episode, The Number of the Beast Is 666, is a tragedy.  But I mean that generically, not emotionally.

Let’s face it. Dr. Frederick Chilton is a classical tragic figure. That is, he meets all the characteristics of Aristotle’s description of that character. The purported father of tragedy described the tragic hero as being defined by five things: a tragic flaw (or error in judgement), a reversal of fortune caused by that flaw, recognition that his own actions led to his fall, excessive pride or hubris, and a fate out of proportion with the error committed.

Dr. Chilton’s flaw, of course, is that, despite the fact that he is essentially the greatest of second-rate minds, Hannibal has »

The top 20 underappreciated films of 1986

26 August 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From thrillers to sci-fi to horror, here's our pick of 20 films from 1986 that surely deserve a bit more love...

A fascinating year for film, 1986. It was a time when a glossy, expensive movie about handsome men in planes could dominate the box-office, sure (that would be Top Gun). But it was also a year when Oliver Stone went off with just $6m and came back with Platoon, one of the biggest hits of the year both financially and in terms of accolades. It was also a period when the British movie industry was briefly back on its feet, resulting in a new golden age of great films - one or two of them are even on this list.

As ever, there were certain films that, despite their entertainment value or genuine brilliance in terms of movie making, somehow managed to slip through the net. So to redress the balance a little, »

Hannibal Recap: Mouth to Mouth Abomination

22 August 2015 7:59 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Hannibal, old friend, you kinda lost me this week.

Look, I know Raul Esparza’s Dr. Frederick Chilton is vain, haughty, inept, smarmy, malicious and all sorts of other unpleasant adjectives. And I’ll admit I didn’t feel the slightest hint of sympathy when the dude had some of his organs painfully removed by Abel Gideon in Season 1 — or when Chilton took a bullet to the face (fired by the deeply addled Miriam Lass) in Season 2.

Who Wants to Buy Buffalo Bill's House From 'The Silence of the Lambs'?

21 August 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

After this week's big news about the iconic Goonies house being covered up to keep fans away, is there anyone who likes the idea of buying a movie location? Even if so, the latest on the market is a particularly tough sell. It's Buffalo Bill's home from The Silence of the Lambs that's become available, and the media calling it a "torture house" might not help its value.  Or maybe it will. A realtor at the agency listing the property told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, "I could see somebody doing something fun with this." Apparently just living in the Southwestern Pennsylvania home isn't what she has in mind. "People love to be scared," she added, reportedly suggesting a horror-themed bed and breakfast. It's...

Buffalo Bill's Silence of the Lambs house is up for sale

20 August 2015 5:18 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

If you've got $300,000 burning a hole in your pocket and fancy owning one of cinema's creepiest houses, then good news! Buffalo Bill's house from The Silence of the Lambs is up for sale.

The three-storey Victorian family home near Perryopolis, Pennsylvania is now on the market after its owners, Scott and Barbara Lloyd, decided to move elsewhere following a 39-year residence.

Memorably, the house was the setting for the 1991 thriller's climax, where serial killer Buffalo Bill (Ted Levine) kept his dungeon and FBI agent Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) found herself in a very tricky situation involving a pair of night-vision goggles.

Those worrying whether there is a basement suitable for skin-removal hobbyists need not fear: that part of the film was shot on a soundstage, and not, say, somewhere near the old washing machine and all those abandoned VHS tapes you can't bear to part with.

The Weinstein Company

With the summer blockbuster season coming to an end, it’s time to get hyped for an amazing selection of fall movies. There are dozens of films on the horizon that everyone’s looking forward to; The Hateful Eight, Spectre, The Hunger Games, and a little something called Star Wars: The Force Awakens, to name just a few.

But what about the non blockbusters?

These lesser known twelve upcoming films could actually be incredible, but right now they’re being somewhat neglected with everyone so focused on Quentin Tarantino and Han Solo.

Here are 2015’s underlooked fall films you should be more excited for.

'Silence Of The Lambs' House Hits the Market ... Movie Memorabilia Included

20 August 2015 12:50 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

It puts the house on the market or else it gets the hose again. The 3-story Victorian home from "The Silence of the Lambs" – yes, the one used to hold Buffalo Bill’s skinsuit victims -- has hit the market, for a very reasonable price.   The 5-bedroom home, an hour south of Pittsburgh, was built in 1910 and its owners have barely changed a thing since the movie that won Best Picture was shot there in 1990. Asking price ... $300k. »

‘Silence of the Lambs’: Buffalo Bill’s House Goes Up for Sale

19 August 2015 4:17 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fictional victim-skinning serial killer Jame “Buffalo Bill” Gumb’s murder house has gone up for sale.

The Silence of the Lambs” villain’s home — a four-bedroom, one bathroom Victorian house set on a 1.76-acre lot in Fayette County, Pennsylvania — has hit the market for the cool price of $300,000.

The Realtor.com listing somehow manages to both embrace and reject the movie connection simultaneously, reading, “A landmark home…featured in the ‘Silence of the Lamb’ movie” and also calling the property a “statement of taste and prosperity” and a “near-perfect expression of comfort.”

In an interview with the Pittsburgh Tribune Review, the 1910 Princess Anne home’s owners, Scott and Barbara Lloyd, explained how the house was used in the 1991 thriller.

“They were looking for a home in which you entered the front door and had a straight line through,” Barbara Lloyd said. “They wanted it to look like a spider web, »

'Silence of the Lambs' Buffalo Bill House for Sale

19 August 2015 2:43 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The home that was used for Buffalo Bill's (Ted Levine) terrifying abode in the Oscar-winning thriller Silence of the Lambs, is going on the market. Scott and Barbara Lloyd's three-story Victorian home near Perryopolis, Pennsylvania was put up for sale on Sunday, with an asking price of $300,000. The homeowners, who are both 63, have decided to sell the home and downsize, building a small ranch-style home just a few miles away.

The four-bedroom house was built in 1910, and the Lloyd's purchased it in 1976, getting married in the foyer in February 1977. While having dinner one night in 1989, a movie producer knocked on their door, asking if they could take photographs inside their home. The Silence of the Lambs filmmakers shot for only three days in the home, but it took the production crew more than six weeks to get the house ready for filming.

Watch: Jonathan Demme’s 1-Hour Talk With Werner Herzog

18 August 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While the public opinion remains somewhat divided on the merit of Jonathan Demme’s latest, the Diablo Cody-penned rock n’ roll dramedy “Ricki & the Flash,” it’s hard to dispute the director’s legendary standing in the last half-century or so of American cinema. After bursting onto the scene with a series of idiosyncratic, deeply personal comedies that shed light on the forgotten back roads of America, (the marvelous “Melvin and Howard” and the deeply weird “Something Wild” are highlights) Demme brought his decidedly singular vision to the mainstream in pictures like “Philadelphia” and his Oscar-winning serial killer masterpiece, “The Silence of the Lambs.” His recent output has been more mixed—“Rachel Getting Married” is fantastic, “The Truth About Charlie” is not so much—but Demme is and was a titan in the American movie scene.

A Conversation With Composer Ilan Eshkeri On His Shaun The Sheep Movie Score

12 August 2015 7:54 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for. A mix up with The Farmer, a caravan, and a very steep hill lead them all to the Big City and it’s up to Shaun and the flock to return everyone safely to Mossy Bottom Farm.

Shaun The Sheep Movie powers through visual puns, sight gags and rollicking plot twists to arrive at a hard-won realization: there’s no place like home.

As there is no dialogue from any of the characters, the music plays such an important role in the movie. That’s where the fantastic, colorful score from composer Ilan Eshkeri comes in.

Complete with the Shaun the Sheep theme, lively cues, and songs, including the award-friendly “Feels Like Summer” song, Eshkeri score is a wonderful soundtrack for a very funny film.

Eshkeri’s recent film work includes Still Alice, »

The People Under the Stairs | Blu-ray Review

11 August 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Throughout a very prolific and sometimes uneven career as an incredibly notable genre filmmaker, Wes Craven’s aesthetic often grapples with issues of revenge and adolescence, having given birth to the iconic The Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream franchises, both series exploring notions of metatextual reinvention. Cutting his teeth with grindhouse horror titles that have since been re-made, many of his more obscure offerings have languished in the critical realm of inconsequential desolation. But it’s his 1991 offering The People Under the Stairs which is worthy of reappraisal, arguably the filmmaker’s best and most bizarre work. Campy, hysterical, creepy, and replete with a socially conscious message, it’s an early 90s cult classic that retains its power to delight and weird out.

Poindexter, aka Fool (Brandon Quintin Adams) as his older tarot card toting sister Ruby (Kelly Jo Minter) calls him, has just learned they’re behind on rent three days. »
