Turturro delivers masterclass in Jerusalem

11 July 2015 4:41 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The actor spoke about working with Michael Cimino, William Friedkin and Woody Allen in a masterclass at Jerusalem Film Festival.

Following his appearance at the Jerusalem Film Festival’s (July 9-19) opening night gala of Nanni Moretti’s My Mother, where he was also presented with an honorary award, John Turturro joined author and Columbia University professor Annette Insdorf for an on-stage conversation at the Jerusalem Cinematheque. Here are a few highlights.

On portraying a ‘bad actor’ in Nanni Moretti’s My Mother

“I didn’t see it that way because anybody can be bad. You can see the best actor in the world struggle and I’ve seen all kinds of behaviour. I’ve had arguments with directors over the years – I won’t name them – but you’re under a lot of pressure as an actor. I’ve seen great actors, if they stay up all night, if they’ve had too much to drink »

Wild, Dangerous, Imperfect Grandeur: 11 Double Features About America

2 July 2015 10:25 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

The United States is “my country, right or wrong,” of course, and I consider myself a patriotic person, but I’ve never felt that patriotism meant blind fealty to the idea of America’s rightful dominance over global politics or culture, and certainly not to its alleged preferred status on God’s short list of favored nations, or that allegiance to said country was a license to justify or rationalize every instance of misguided, foolish, narrow-minded domestic or foreign policy.

And now more than ever we seem to be living in a country poised at the edge of some sort of transition, with all the attendant tension and conflict and intense conviction that can be expected on either side of the chasm that prevents us from a true state of national togetherness. Just last week we celebrated a Supreme Court decision that finally offered legality (and legal protection) to the »

Why '500 Questions' is the trivia experience TV needs

21 May 2015 1:32 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I am a game show zealot. I believe in the umber glow of Chuck Woolery and the sneering capabilities of Paul Lynde. I'm also a rabid fan of trivia; I was on "Jeopardy!" a couple weeks ago and Gsn's "The Chase" before that. Every time network TV rolls out a new primetime trivia-based game show, I'm listening and hopeful and there -- and I have three spring-loaded requests: 1) Please, Jesus, anything but more "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?"-type lighting; 2) Good lord, no more multiple choice questions; 3) Make me love you, new show. I want to love you. Embrace me, you child. Last year we got the Ryan Seacrest-hosted "Million Second Quiz," a multiple-choice bonanza with "Millionaire" lighting that was tedious and unchallenging (read: not lovable). You can understand my devastation there. "500 Questions" is this year's new primetime trivia attempt. Hosted by CNN journalist Richard Quest, "500 Questions" airs »

Letters: James Bond, flipper DVDs, and name that film

21 May 2015 3:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Our letters page is back! This time? A mystery film, On Her Majesty's Secret Service and flipper DVDs...

It's letters time! The return of our outmoded way of interacting with people, by encouraging you to send us letters which we then reply to. Nearly a year since we started this short-lived ridiculous idea, it's still going. Crikey.

If you want to write in, then the details are at the bottom of this piece. But in the meantime, we've got your latest letters to answer. So we'd best get cracking...

Long time reader first time emailer. I'm a [nice comment redacted, we remain very shy] of the site, I might not always agree but your opinion and the opinion I read in the comments section is usually very fair.

Anyway I was just writing in about your reviews of all the Bond films but specifically about On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Corporate Greed Is Bad for Your Health and for the Health of Democracy

'The Insider' movie: Al Pacino and Russell Crowe 'The Insider' movie: 1999 exposé of CBS news show barks, but doesn't bite Michael Mann's 1999 movie The Insider quote exchange: "It's old news. ... We'll be ok," says Don Hewitt (Philip Baker Hall), the creator of the CBS news show 60 Minutes. "These things have a half-life of 15 minutes." "No, that's fame," replies 60 Minutes anchor Mike Wallace (Christopher Plummer). "Fame has a 15-minute half-life. Infamy lasts a little longer." The infamous "things" referred to by Hewitt and Wallace are the series of scandals that erupted in early 1996, when it was revealed that CBS had refused to air an interview with a tobacco company whistleblower because the network feared the (financial) consequences.

The Graduate Actress Elizabeth Wilson Dies at the Age of 94

11 May 2015 6:37 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Elizabeth Wilson, the actress who played Dustin Hoffman's mother in The Graduate, passed away on Saturday in New Haven, Ct, at the age of 94. Her death was confirmed to The New York Times by Elizabeth Morton, a close friend whom she considered a daughter. Elizabeth's first acting role was an uncredited appearance in Alfred Hitchcock's Notorious in 1946. She worked with Hitchcock again in 1963 and got a proper credit when she starred as Helen Carter in The Birds. Elizabeth then made a name for herself as a character actress both on stage and on film and also had notable roles in movies like 9 to 5, The Addams Family, and Quiz Show. She won a Tony Award in 1972 for her portrayal of a Vietnam War veteran's mother in David Rabe's Sticks and Bones. Her last onscreen appearance was in 2012 when she played the mother of Franklin Delano Roosevelt in Hyde Park on Hudson. »

If you can picture Dustin Hoffman’s mother in The Graduate, or Ralph Fiennes’ in Quiz Show, or, in her best known, if least characteristic film role as the treacherous foil to Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin in 9 To 5, you can probably summon Elizabeth Wilson’s face more quickly than her name.

Why 1998 Was the Best Year In Film History

27 April 2015 12:46 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Check here for a complete list of our essays. Just one glance at the Oscar nominees for 1998 might make it seem less a questionable choice for “best year in film” — and more an insane one.   Instead of a 1974 – The Godfather II, The Conversation, Chinatown, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, etc – or even a 1994, where Shawshank, Quiz Show, and Pulp Fiction lost to Gump – you choose a year where the Oscars would allow Roberto Benigni to climb atop both the figurative and literal chairs of the Shrine?   Fine, step away from the Oscars. Would you still celebrate a year that saw not one, but two movies about asteroids threatening the Earth?  A year that saw such scars carved across cinematic history as Patch Adams, My Giant, Stepmom, and Krippendorf’s Tribe?   It bears repeating: Krippendorf’S Tribe? »

Why 1980 Was the Best Year in Movie History

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Click here for a complete list of our essays. How to decide in the grand scheme of things which film year stands above all others?  History gives us no clear methodology to unravel this thorny but extremely important question. Is it the year with the highest average score of movies?  So a year that averages out to a B + might be the winner over a field strewn with B’s, despite a few A +’s. Or do a few masterpieces lift up a year so far that whatever else happened beyond those three or four films is of no consequence? Both measures are worthy, and the winner by either of those would certainly be a year not to be sneezed at. But I contend the only true measure of a year’s »

From Actor to "Action!", Exploring the Debuts of 19 Actors-Turned-Directors

21 April 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Over the course of film history, we've seen plenty of long-time actors step behind the camera to take up their directorial ambitions. Clint Eastwood did it. Mel Gibson did it. George Clooney did it. What do these three have in commonc Well, for starters, they are all men, so there's that. Further, they are all white, but more on that later. More to the point of the article, these men all eased into their directorial careers by starring in their respective debuts, using their presence on screen to help market their talents off it. And with his feature directorial effort The Water Diviner, which hits limited theaters this week, Russell Crowe is just the most recent addition to a growing list of actors who have decided to try their hand behind the camera. Like Eastwood, Gibson, and Clooney before him, the Best Actor winner stars in his first feature as director, »

Édgar Ramírez joins Matthew McConaughey in mining drama Gold

20 March 2015 12:35 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Édgar Ramírez has been cast in upcoming Black Bear Pictures drama Gold.

The Zero Dark Thirty actor will star alongside Matthew McConaughey in the Patrick Massett and John Zinman-penned film.

According to Deadline, Ramírez will play geologist Michael Acosta, with McConaughey taking on the role of a prospector named Walsh.

The plot - based on the true story of the 1993 Bre-x Mineral Corporation mining scandal - sees the pair team up to uncover huge deposits of gold in the heart of the Indonesian jungle.

Their new riches fast-track Acosta and Walsh into the boardrooms of America's biggest corporations on Wall Street, before suspicions of fraud bring their worlds crashing down.

Executive produced by Paul Haggis and Richard Middleton, Gold is to be produced by Teddy Schwarzman (The Imitation Game) and Michael Nozik (Quiz Show, Syriana) as well as Massett, Zinman and McConaughey.

The production is due to begin filming in June, »

Round Up: Earlier for 'Me and Earl and the Dying Girl' and Bryan Cranston's next

11 March 2015 11:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury and Audience Award winner "Me and Earl and the Dying Girl" is heading to theaters slightly earlier than expected.  Fox Searchlight originally announced "Earl" would open in limited release on July 1.  Now, the studio has reconsidered and the acclaimed dramedy will debut in limited release on June 12. The new date actually puts "Earl" on the same opening day as another Sundance hit, "Dope," although Open Road Films is making an eye-popping move by opening that film wide against expected blockbuster "Jurassic World." "Earl" will now avoid opening in the same frame as Woody Allen's "Irrational Man" and Judd Apatow's "Trainwrecked" which could siphon some of its audience in key metro markets.  One thing is for sure, with a June release date Searchlight is going to need to get a trailer out sooner rather than later.  That means a sneak peek for anyone who »

16 February 2015 4:26 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Actor and director Edward Burns has over 25 films under his belt and credits with superstars like Jennifer Aniston and Tom Hanks, but, like many other success stories, he started out at the bottom of the Hollywood food chain.

News: Jon Hamm Gets By With Help From His 'Friends'

It was an early job as a production assistant at Entertainment Tonight and a chance encounter with Sundance Film Festival chairman Robert Redford, however, that set the young director on the road to Sundance and future success.

"Redford was doing the junket for Quiz Show," Burns told Et. "I, of course, was PAing that junket. I had my VHS copy of Brothers McMullen, a rough cut of the movie and you know I had a 30 second schpeel prepared. So the minute the interview ended, he would go to the elevator with his publicist and I was gonna cut him off and hand him my tape... Fortunately for me »
