‘Split Screen’: 9 Reasons You Should Watch FilmStruck’s Revival of TV’s Best-Ever Series About Indie Film

5 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Anyone who knows independent film history also knows “Spike, Mike, Slackers and Dykes,” a memoir by seminal producer’s rep John Pierson of his role in launching the careers of filmmakers such as Kevin Smith, Spike Lee, and Richard Linklater. Between 1997 and 2001, Pierson had a new way to spotlight talented filmmakers with IFC’s “Split Screen.” Now FilmStruck has acquired “Split Screen” streaming rights and, starting this Saturday, the original episodes will become available, with six episodes added every six weeks. Pierson spoke to IndieWire by phone and shared his thoughts as to why the show still belongs on your radar.

The Late ’90s Were an Optimistic Moment

Whether it’s showing somebody you know, somebody you should know, or somebody you may never know because we featured some wacky people who never went anywhere — that sense of optimism permeates most everything we did. To me, this is a nice »

‘Dolemite’ Blu-ray Review

8 December 2016 4:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Rudy Ray Moore, D’Urville Martin, Lady Reed, John KerryHy Pyke, Vainus Rackstraw, West Gale | Written by Jerry Jones | Directed by D’Urville Martin

Dolemite (Rudy Ray Moore, The Human Tornado) has spent a couple of years behind bars after being set up by rival pimp Willie Green ( D’Urville Martin, Black Caeser). His luck changes when his madam Queen Bee (Lady Reed, Disco Godfather) pays the prison warden a visit providing evidence of Dolemite’s innocence. With the warden now rightfully suspecting that Green and a few crooked cops including the hot-headed Mitchell (John Kerry, Black Dynamite) are behind Dolemite’s imprisonment, he organises an early release so that Dolemite can clear his name. Unfortunately however, it’s not all good news as Green is also responsible for killing Dolemite’s young nephew. With revenge well and truly on his mind, Dolemite instantly (well, after some back seat limo action at least. »

‘Stevie D’: Film Review

7 December 2016 7:15 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Wiseguys meet A Tale of Two Cities, sorta kinda, in the L.A.-set crime comedy Stevie D. Writer-director-star Chris Cordone’s highly uneven debut feature declares its budget constraints at every turn, along with its countless sources of inspiration, from Get Shorty to Pulp Fiction. As borrowed as it is, though, the high concept outshines the execution; it’s easy to see how a significantly slimmed-down and sharpened version of the overlong feature might have been a small-time contender.

Cordone’s smartest move is the casting of seasoned character actors, including Hal Linden, John Aprea and Kevin Chapman (of the series Person of Interest). Chapman »

Film Review: ‘Frank & Lola’

6 December 2016 1:35 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In the ’90s, the “Pulp Fiction” revolution inspired a whole lot of bad “Pulp Fiction” imitations, and it also brought forth a new wave of faux film noir — “stylish” low-budget indie thrillers that featured ceiling fans and light glaring through venetian blinds and ’40s-meets-’90s vamps in designer lipstick who strutted and posed like the femmes fatales of legend. Most of these movies were so busy fetishizing the trappings of black-and-white romantic crime cinema that they missed the down-and-dirty essence of it: the thrilling everydayness of noir sleaze. “Frank & Lola,” an authentically twisted love story starring Michael Shannon and Imogen Poots, neatly avoids that mistake. It’s set in the bars, restaurants, and all-too-ordinary apartments of Las Vegas (as well as the ritzy side of Paris), and it coasts along on currents of anxiety and desire, but there’s nothing quaintly genre-ish about it. The ingenuity of “Frank & Lola” is »

‘Lion’: How Dev Patel, Nicole Kidman, and Rooney Mara Shake the Post-Election Blues

6 December 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As Sunny Pawar, the 8-year-old Indian star of “Lion,” struggled to get permission to attend the film’s premieres in Los Angeles and New York, the hard-charging indie mogul Harvey Weinstein tapped his network of Beltway power-brokers to try to secure a visa for the boy and his father, Dilip.

Weinstein knew the leadership of the Homeland Security Department from his work producing a 9/11 benefit, so he called. To press his case, he tapped David Boies, the high-profile attorney who successfully lobbied the Supreme Court to legalize gay marriage. He even reached out to an industrialist friend in India to see about using his private plane to ferry the Pawars into the country. After they missed the film’s Los Angeles kickoff, Weinstein was able to convince authorities to expedite the boy’s petition to come to the U.S. just in time to catch the Manhattan premiere.

Oscars 2017: All Signs Pointing to Barry Jenkins as Best Director For ‘Moonlight’?

5 December 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

Things are looking pretty promising for Barry Jenkins right about now. Putting the majority of Moonlight’s awards and accolades aside, the filmmaker was recently honored by both the New York Film Critics Circle Award as well as the Los Angeles Film Critics Association Award for his work behind the camera — but will this translate into a best director win at the Oscars in 2017?

Moonlight — which focuses on a young gay black man at three stages of his life, from childhood to adulthood, and follows his journey of self-discovery and finding his place in the world — is a huge threat in this year’s Oscar race. It’s one of the best-reviewed films of the year and is atop the lists of most critics in numerous categories, but let’s hone in on best director for a moment. »

Tim Roth: ‘If you neglect the working class for so long, they will rebel against you’

4 December 2016 5:30 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The actor, who plays a serial killer in new BBC drama Rillington Place, talks about the rise of ‘fascism’ in the Us, the abuse he suffered as a child and why he cares only about reviews from the staff in his local supermarket

It is a balmy afternoon in Pasadena, California, with winter sunshine flooding the hotel terrace. Tim Roth exudes a dash of dandy in a knee‑length vintage black coat. The illusion dissolves when he chucks it over a chair – revealing a wrinkled black T‑shirt, old jeans and stained black boots – plonks in a chair and orders a beer. He could be an off‑duty plumber.

He lights up a vape and proceeds to puff minty clouds. “Kids got me on to it, years ago, to get me off the fags. It works, but I vape too much.” The Londoner is 55 and wears it well: hair swept back, »

7 New Netflix Shows to Binge Watch in December 2016, and The Best Episodes of Each

1 December 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

1. “Trollhunters” Season 1 (available December 23)

Why Should I Watch It? Two big reasons: First, the director of “Pan’s Labyrinth,” Guillermo del Toro, created “Trollhunters,” an animated event series about a teenager who discovers a mystical amulet that unveils a secret civilization of trolls beneath his hometown. If the Oscar nominee himself isn’t enough, there’s another creative force — in addition to the impressive voice cast of Kelsey Grammer, Ron Perlman and Charlie Saxton — to pay attention to: Said teenager is voiced by Anton Yelchin, in what’s being billed his final role. After debuting two episodes at New York Comic-Con in October, del Toro said he never even discussed replacing Yelchin. “We didn’t go into a meeting,” del Toro said. “We didn’t have a conference. […] He was a great guy to work with, he was proud of what he did, we were proud of what he did. »

Pete’s Dragon (David Lowery)

Unburdened by expectations — unlike some Sundance alums who have carried the weight of Hollywood’s biggest franchises — David Lowery is the ideal director to take on a new version of this fantastical adventure about a boy and his best friend. Carrying on a lyrical, timeless approach that served his break-out drama Ain’t The Bodies Saints so well, his update of Pete’s Dragon has an emotional sensitivity, aesthetic clarity, and all-around sense »
