Twenty years ago I was still a journalism student, there was no Gold Derby, and I hadn’t even met Tom O’Neil. It was kind of like beginning of “The Wizard of Oz.” Dorothy was still in Kansas, everything was in black and white, and she had yet to encounter the Wicked Witch of the West. But like O’Neil (and most Gold Derby readers born before the fall of the Berlin Wall) I was already obsessed with the Academy Awards. -Break- And with just a few months remaining in 1994, I felt fairly confident about many of the major races. The Best Picture category seemed to have four locks – “Forrest Gump,” “Pulp Fiction,” “Quiz Show” and “The Shawshank Redemption.” The fifth slot was up for grabs, with the surprise hit British comedy “Four Weddings and a Funeral” looking like a real possibility. Even though he had just won Best Actor for 1993’s “Philadelphia, »
“Human Capital” is a term used to assign a monetary value to an employee based on their knowledge, habits, personality, and creative and physical qualities. According to an insurance company, our lives have value, or in some cases very little.
Upon speaking with Paolo Virzi, the Italian director of his 12th and newest film Human Capital, he revealed he had calculated his own. Though he felt his value was awfully low given his age and his health, he’d agree that the real value of a human life is determined by the actions and behavior of humans that can only be considered priceless.
Human Capital is a three-part story surrounding a hit-and-run car accident as viewed by three different characters. It’s less Rashomon, more Amores Perros, capturing the dark edges, social commentary and young love embedded deep within the story. Following openings abroad, an American premiere in »

“Birdman” soared at the arthouses this weekend with the show business satire enjoying a smashing debut that could help it travel beyond the cinephile crowd.
The quirky comedy from Fox Searchlight picked up $415,000 in just four theaters, making it the year’s second-highest grossing film from a per-screen average standpoint. Its average of $103,750 is behind only “The Grand Budapest Hotel’s” $202,792 number.
“When the numbers started coming in on Friday, we all went ‘wow,'” said Frank Rodriguez, senior vice president of distribution at Searchlight. “We were seeing all the seats fill up. There’s so many films out there. So many holdovers and so many new films, that it’s hard to get the seats you need.”
In order to meet the demand, Searchlight will expand “Birdman” beyond New York and Los Angeles to 18 markets and between 40 and 50 theaters. Within three to four weeks, it hopes to have the film in between 400 and 600 theaters. »

For any actor, the chance to star in that of a Quentin Tarantino movie is the cinematic equivalent of striking gold. The writer/director, who shot to fame as the genius behind crime flick Reservoir Dogs in the early ’90s, is renowed for his ability to conjure up incredibly meaty and memorable characters, gifting actors with the opportunity to get their teeth into some of the best dialogue cues this side of a David Mamet play. As a result, competition for said roles is always fierce, with everybody in Hollywood attempting to get involved.
After all, Tarantino has created some of the best cinematic characters of all-time – characters that have worked their way into the public consciousness for being undeniably badass, evil, hilarious or just plain weird. Even the tiniest Tarantino character can create a huge, lasting impression, thanks to his ability to inject a movie’s supporting »

The Hollywood Reporter has reported that Donnie Yen will be making a return to the Us to star in a new English-language film titled 'Noodle Man'. He will play an ex-cop from China who now runs a noodle shop in New York's Chinatown. One day, he meets in his shop the drug lord responsible for killing his partner 15 years ago. Noodle Man will be a Us-China co-production directed by Chen Daming (who helmed the Chinese version of What Women Want starring Andy Lau and Gong Li) and produced by Michael Shamberg, producer of films such as Pulp Fiction, Out Of Sight, Contagion and Django Unchained. In the early 2000s, Yen appeared in Highlander: Endgame, Blade 2, and Shanghai Knights. Noodle Man will be his first English-language film since the...

★★☆☆☆ Agnès B is a created idea from the imagination of Agnès Andrée Marguerite Troublé. Known to the world as a fashion designer she has always held a candle for what the French call the Seventh Art. After embracing cinema and its more errant enfant terrible auteurs, she has made the final leap and created her own feature film: My Name Is Hmmm (2013). She has long been associated with cinema, from an early tee-shirt that read: "J'aime le cinema" to the use of her clothing in films such as Tarantino's Pulp Fiction (1994), where Uma Thurman's character Mia Wallace is seen wearing an iconic Agnès B white shirt. Co-founder of Harmony Korine's production company O'Salvation, the cinematic world has known and loved her for her support of visionary filmmakers like Claire Denis and Gaspar Noé.

My new apartment doesn't have internet or cable, because I don't know if I want internet or cable. "Not wanting cable" is so hot right now. This week, CBS and HBO announced their intentions to launch streaming-only services. Pause to imagine your retired grandparents who watch NCIS: New Orleans but prefer NCIS: La. Now pause to imagine your prodigal-son cousin who stars in a hipster off-Broadway nude-rap opera. (He plays a a cross-dressing hooker named Threeyoncé.) Now pause to imagine that they both suddenly agree on everything—because when the most successful TV network and the TV network so cool »

The true first rule of Fight Club is that you have to start a piece about Fight Club by referencing the “first rule of Fight Club” line. After 15 years, it’s more of an impulse than a cliche, like in the way that boys have an impulse for violence that’s not a stereotype. Anyway, it’s time yet again to talk about Fight Club because one and a half decades gone by calls for another anniversary celebration of David Fincher‘s modern classic. And just as I like to do with all modern classics, I’m commemorating this occasion by recommending relevant older classics (and some not-so-classics) that preceded it. Fight Club is another movie from the 1990s that has been highly influential on what has come after and was highly influenced by what had come before. Unlike Pulp Fiction and others, though, Fincher’s movie doesn’t wear its allusions so obviously. There »

Like most actors, Michael Keaton claims he doesn’t enjoy watching himself in his own movies. But when it comes to his buzzy starring role in Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s “Birdman,” which Fox Searchlight opens in limited release Friday, he can’t stop watching himself — as if in disbelief that it’s really him up there onscreen. “I like this movie so much, I just can’t get enough of it,” he says over a recent lunch at Santa Monica’s Miramar Hotel, the day after he’d seen “Birdman” for the third time, at an Academy screening attended by his old “Batman” sparring partner, Jack Nicholson. “I’m watching this movie and I’m thinking, God, I love this movie. And then I realized: Wait a minute, I’m in this movie!”
Coming from most people, a statement like that would sound like false modesty at best and willful self-delusion at worst, »

Is it just us or was 1994 the year of our favorite films ever?
Among a stellar list of classic movies celebrating their 20th anniversary this year, which include Forrest Gump, Pulp Fiction and The Little Rascals, Little Giants is also ringing in the milestone anniversary.
Photos- 'The Little Rascals' Cast All Grown-Up!
The beloved sports film starred Rick Moranis and Ed O'Neil as small town brothers coaching rival pee-wee football teams-- one team, led by Heisman Trophy winner brother Kevin (O'Neal), and the other, led by underdog Danny (Moranis) and his band of misfit kids.
Et was on the set back in 1994 with the young cast who were joined by NFL greats such as John Madden, Emmitt Smith, Bruce Smith and Steve Emtman. Despite a few major commercials, it was the first time working on a major film for most of the »
A longtime employee of L.A.’s New Beverly Cinema says Quentin Tarantino’s new management has forced her out and is ruining the beloved repertory theater. Julia Marchese, one of a few staffers who stayed on through Tarantino’s takeover last month, was told she would be co-manager of the New Beverly when it re-opened this month after renovations. She says this week she was demoted and unceremoniously forced to quit by Tarantino’s longtime personal assistant Julie McLean, who is now acting as General Manager.
“I went through the last six weeks really thinking Quentin was going to make it better,” Marchese told me today. “The thing that’s most shocking to me is that he’s allowing it and I can’t even talk to him about it. To not even be allowed to state my case is unfair.” She says through the Tarantino-led renovations and October 1 re-opening, »

"Get busy livin' or get busy dying," goes one of the many memorable lines in one of American cinema's contemporary classics "The Shawshank Redemption." And that's not an overstatement. From a movie that barely registered when it was released (it was a very busy month in October 1994 with "Pulp Fiction" leading the pack), Frank Darabont's adaptation of Stephen King's short story has since become a staple on cable, and simply one of the most beloved movies of the last couple of decades (it currently sits atop the IMDb Top 250). But did the critics like it at the time? Well, two of the most important ones did. We've dug up with the "Siskel & Ebert" review of "The Shawshank Redemption," and it's glowing, effusive stuff. Both have nothing but positive things to say, with Siskel calling it one of the best pictures of the year. If you want an extra treat, »

Uma Thurman is downplaying reports that her ex Arpad Busson is suing her for custody of their daughter.
Uma Thurman is downplaying reports that her ex-fiance Arpad Busson is suing her for custody of their 2-year-old daughter, Rosalind.
On Tuesday, it was reported by numerous media outlets that Busson, a French financier, had filed an emergency order in the New York Supreme Court. However, those papers are sealed and therefore it's unknown where the filing stands currently.
While Busson has yet to comment, a spokesperson for Thurman told Et, "It is unfortunate that this very private discussion regarding Mr. Busson’s visitation rights and his participation in decision making has been made public."
The statement continues, "However, we are optimistic that a fair agreement for both sides will be reached out of court."
