SXSW TV Review: ‘Dear White People’ on Netflix

13 March 2017 3:02 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s fitting that “Dear White People” is set at an Ivy League school, because the new Netflix series — based on Justin Simien’s 2014 movie of the same name — serves as a crash course in racial relations for audiences who don’t have enough black friends to educate them on how many of the jokes, stereotypes, and assumptions they make about non-whites are more than just insulting, but in many cases downright dangerous.

Of course, while pitching it that way serves to underscore the show’s importance, it detracts from how clever and entertaining “Dear White People” can be. If cutting-edge social commentary is the medicine, then wit, attitude, and a terrifically charismatic black-led cast is the sugar that will help it go down. And make no mistake: “Dear White People” is meant for both white and black audiences (and every other color imaginable), as “ethnic but nonthreatening” narrator Giancarlo Esposito makes clear from the outset.

King was credited with having played a key role in ending the rioting, »

9 Oscars Winners Who Don't Hold Up to the Test of Time

24 February 2017 2:05 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Just because a movie or a celebrity wins an Oscar, that doesn't mean the win was deserved. While the Academy Awards are seen as the capstone to awards season -- and one of the highest honors in the business -- we all know that stars and movies get snubbed or overlooked all the time.

What's worse is when we look back at what did win, and shake our heads in confusion and disbelief. So, with the 89th Academy Awards just around the corner, let's take a look back over the show's illustrious history at a few times the Academy voters clearly made a mistake.

Why Denzel Washington Could Make History with a Surprise Third Oscar Win

23 February 2017 9:12 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

With a best actor nomination for his tour-de-force performance in Fences, Denzel Washington is on the verge of making history — again. 

Should he win, Washington would have more Oscars under his belt than any other African-American actor. He is already the most nominated, having landed his seventh nod this year for Fences, and is also the only African-American to win multiple acting Oscars.

But with Casey Affleck’s gut-wrenching turn in Manchester By the Sea wracking up best actor nominations and wins throughout awards season, this year’s Oscars will see Washington playing an unfamiliar role: the underdog.

The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Actor Race

The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Actor RaceThe 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Actor RaceAdriana Floridia2/17/2017 10:44:00 Am

The Best Actor race just got exciting.

For most of the season, it looked like the winner in this category was set. Casey Affleck had been winning nearly every accolade imaginable for his masterful performance in Manchester by the Sea. However, this changed when Denzel Washington won the Screen Actors Guild award for his turn in Fences. Suddenly, we aren't so sure about Affleck winning the Oscar, as the winner of the SAG usually goes on to win the top prize.

While it's unlikely, the other three contenders could pull an upset, and if anyone were going to it may be Ryan Gosling. His co-star in La La Land, Emma Stone, is just about set to win the Oscar for Best Actress, »

Denzel Washington Has Trouble Remembering His Famous Movie Lines (Watch)

15 February 2017 12:21 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Denzel Washington may have seen every film he’s ever appeared in, but the question is, can the actor remember his most famous lines from those movies?

During Tuesday’s appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” Kimmel put Washington through his paces, asking him to distinguish lines that he had said in movies from quotes that he hadn’t uttered.

Things got off to a poor start for the “Fences” director and star.

“For out of the ground we were taken for the dust we are, and to the dust we shall return,” was the first line read aloud by a volunteer at a local Los Angeles farmers’ market.

“Nah, I never said that,” Washington replied with conviction, before throwing his hands up in disbelief when it was revealed he uttered the line in the 2010 drama “The Book of Eli.”

Bradford Young Breaks Color Barrier With Oscar Nomination for ‘Arrival’

15 February 2017 10:30 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ending an 87-year drought, the Academy finally nominated its first African-American cinematographer, Bradford Young, for his dark, richly textured work on Denis Villeneuve’s science-fiction hit “Arrival.” Young had already picked awards twice at Sundance for his lensing on Dee Rees’ “Pariah” and shooting Andrew Dosunmu’s “Mother of George” and David Lowery’s “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints” the same year, and he served as Ava DuVernay’s cinematographer on “Middle of Nowhere” and “Selma.” With Oscar in sight, Young spoke with Variety from London, where he is currently filming a little project unofficially known as “Han Solo,” a new chapter in the “Star Wars” franchise.

Personally and historically, what does this nomination mean to you?

It’s a tough question that I’ve been thinking about a lot. It’s always an honor when your peers recognize the hard work you put into the films that we make, »

Berlinale: ‘Divines’ Helmer Houda Benyamina Develops Romantic Wartime Drama (Exclusive)

13 February 2017 12:20 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Director Houda Benyamina, who earned a Golden Globe nomination for “Divines,” is developing “For Assia,” an epic drama charting the romance between an Algerian revolutionary and an American reporter, set against the backdrop of Algeria’s struggle for independence.

Benyamina said the lead character in “For Assia” is inspired by various female revolutionaries, notably Djamila Bouhired, a leading light of the Algerian war who was nearly sentenced to death, and her fellow independence-fighter Zohra Drif.

The film reunites Benyamina with “Divines” producer Marc-Benoît Créancier at Easy Tiger. The film centers on the unbreakable bond between an imprisoned Algerian revolutionary and an American journalist whose work proves decisive in rallying support in France and abroad for getting her off death row. The story takes place over 30 years.

Benyamina, who was recently signed by Wme, is looking to cast an up-and-coming American actor for the male role. “For this film, I see »

Nostalgia Ain’T What It Used To Be

13 February 2017 9:32 AM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Nostalgia just ain’t what it used to be.

When the poster for American Graffiti (1973) asked the question “Where were you in ’62?” it was marketing a trend, spiked by the increasing popularity of the theatrical musical Grease, for audiences of a certain age to look backward to a time when life wasn’t ostensibly so complicated, when your life was still out there waiting to be lived, to a time when America hadn’t yet “lost its innocence.” The demarcation point for that alleged loss is often assigned to the upheaval of grief and national confusion experienced in the wake of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in November 1963, so it was no accident that the setting for American Graffiti’s night of cruising, romancing and soul-searching was placed a little over a year before that cataclysmic event. The interesting thing about Graffiti was the aggressiveness with which that »

Roots of the problem: the controversial history of Alex Haley's book

9 February 2017 9:51 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Haley’s influential family saga about 18th century slavery is back on TV, but its literary reputation is still tarnished by questions of authenticity

This week saw both the debut on BBC4 of a star-studded mini-series based on Alex Haley’s Roots, and the 25th anniversary of Haley’s death on 10 February 1992. That the latter was not accompanied by a clutch of major reassessments testifies to his fascinatingly ambiguous status: he is the most-read African American author ever – The Autobiography of Malcolm X (which he co-authored with the black nationalist leader) sold 6m copies in its first decade, Roots sold the same number in its first year alone – yet is forever tainted by controversy and kept out of the canon.

What’s strange about the sniffiness towards Haley is that his impact was felt in literary fiction, as well as by the 130 million Americans who viewed the (much less classy »

Rotterdam ‘17: World premiere of Ernest Dickerson’s ‘Double Play’

Ernest Dickerson is a client of manager Jennifer Levine who told me about this film in Sundance!

International Film Festival Rotterdam (Iffr) presented the world premiere of “Double Play” with the King of Netherlands attending along with the cast and crew. American filmmaker Ernest Dickerson (“Juice”, “The Wire”) directed the film version of the internationally lauded novel Double Play by Curaçaoan author Frank Martinus Arion. The film features a host of Caribbean, American and European actors including Brit Lennie James, the Tony Award nominated Saycon Sengbloh and Oscar winner Louis Gossett Jr.

An ostensibly simple game of dominoes unfurls a portrait of Antillean society in Double Play. In 1973, Frank Martinus Arion (1936–2015) provided a unique insight into culture and society on Curaçao during the tumultuous transition from Dutch colonial rule to autonomy in his successful novel Double Play. The film adds a contemporary perspective. The audience sees what lay behind the »
