Lost Horizon (1937)

It’s a wonder movie from the 1930s, a political fantasy that imagines a Utopia of peace and kindness hidden away in a distant mountain range — or in our daydreams. Sony’s new restoration is indeed impressive. Ronald Colman is seduced by a vision of a non-sectarian Heaven on Earth, while Savant indulges his anti-Frank Capra grumblings in his admiring but hesitant review essay.

An All-Star Cast Seeks To Reach Me In New Trailer

As a general rule, I’m a big believer in cinema moving forward. It’s vital for an artform to constantly renew and reinvigorate itself, in order to remain interesting and avoid stagnation. That’s why bold and visionary filmmakers are so important. To date, the writer and director of Reach MeJohn Herzfeld – has been neither of those things (2 Days In The Valley, anyone?), but the new trailer for his latest movie suggests a move in a new, more intriguing direction.

The film is about a large collection of characters and their respective connections to a self-help book – titled ‘Reach Me’ – written by a reclusive author, played by Tom Berenger. Now, here’s the thing – it would seem that while this film represents the all-important forward motion for helmer Herzfeld, it may also prove to be the opposite for many in its cast – and that’s just fine.

Is The Great Gatsby really a love story?

The director has made 'a great, tragic love story', but Fitzgerald himself thought his book was more about delusion and failure

Is The Great Gatsby a love story? The new Baz Luhrmann adaptation is being sold as such. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan and boasting a haunting love theme from Lana Del Ray, the film is a "great, tragic love story with action, passion, drama", said director Baz Luhrmann to the Hollywood Reporter, comparing his the casting of Daisy to the search for Scarlett O'Hara in Gone with the Wind. The romance novelist Barbara Taylor Bradford proclaimed the novel to be "the greatest love story ever told". Gatsby can certainly sold that way – but can it be told that way?

Cliff Robertson Obituary

  • HeyUGuys
September 9, 1923 – September 10, 2011

American actor Cliff Robertson died at the age of 88 on Saturday September 10 from natural causes.

To the younger generation (God…I sound like my Dad!) Cliff Robertson will be best remembered as Uncle Ben in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man, also seen in flashback in Spider-Man 2 and 3.

In my childhood, he was a very familiar face in the mid sixties and seventies. Many of the films that he appeared in probably won’t register with most people but he made a big impact with me. Maybe it was Robertson’s calming demeanour and intelligent delivery that made you believe in every character that he played. You also felt that you knew him like some favourite Uncle.

He played Mosquito pilot wing commander Roy Grant in the British war film 633 Squadron (64). At the time I didn’t think that it was at all strange for an American officer to fly with the Raf.

Review: "Making the Boys" Tells the Fascinating Behind-the-Scenes Story of "The Boys in the Band"

  • The Backlot
The Boys in the Band

Can I make a confession? I didn't want to watch or review Making the Boys, the new documentary about the landmark 1968 play and 1970 film The Boys in the Band that opens in limited release in March.

Yes, yes, I know how important the movie is in gay entertainment history (which is why I put it as number one on my list of the most important gay movies of all time, even as I also put it on another list of my least favorite gay movies).

But it's also probably the most discussed gay movie of all time. As Making the Boys points out, it was hailed upon its first staging, then condemned by gays in the post-Stonewall era, then "rediscovered" in the 1990s. At every point in modern gay history, it's been there in the background, cited as an example of post-Stonewall "truth," or as

Who’s Who? (And Who’s Better?) Jesse Eisenberg vs. Michael Cera

Remember that quirky kid from Arrested Development? Man, he was awesome in Zombieland. Or, wait, was that the weird kid from The Squid and the Whale? I can’t remember. Then there was that guy from the Facebook movie–what was his name? Same guy? That doesn’t seem right.

Since the release of Zombieland, the Internet has been abuzz about Jesse Eisenberg and Michael Cera. “They’re, like, the same guy, man.” It’s true, the two actors are fairly similar, both physically and professionally. Cera would look like Eisenberg if he grew facial hair. (He can, he’s just contractually obligated not to.) They’ve played similar roles, too: Eisenberg’s lead in Zombieland had many moviegoers questioning, “What would that squirrely kid from Superbad do in a zombie apocalypse?”

Michael Cera seems to be spending his career being typecast as his Arrested Development character. His roles in Superbad,
