2011: A Year in Review Part I

30 December 2011 7:27 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

2011 was one of the best years for film in recent years.  There are about 25 films that could have made my top ten list and each film in my top 5 could be my number one.  I saw about 100 films this year and I still wish I could have seen more.  I feel very comfortable with my top ten and I feel like it was a good representative of the year in film.  However I do feel that people looking at this article should go over to Sound On Sight and see all the staff’s individual lists, as well as the honorable mentions that just missed my list.  You will find a great collection of films on those lists.

1. Martha Marcy May Marlene

Directed by Sean Durkin

I saw Sean Durkin’s directorial debut in August and knew as soon as the last frame came up that this was the best picture of the year. »

Angie’s Top 10 Movies of 2011

29 December 2011 12:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] I find it difficult to say whether 2011 was an unusually strong or unusually weak year for films. As in any year, there were pleasant surprises and disappointments alike. If I had to pinpoint the one thing my favorites tend to have in common, though, it's a sense that each of them were made with great love by people who cared desperately about them. I don't think there's anything anyone can say at the start of a top 10 list to totally deflect the disgruntled comments from readers who incensed to see that X made my top 10 when Y didn't, etc., but I'm still going to throw out the usual caveats. There are certainly deserving films that were left off just because I forgot about them, or because I missed the theatrical run, or because I couldn't fully appreciate them due to my own biases, or what have you.

Top 7 Films in Real Time

21 December 2011 2:32 PM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

We start the Top 7. You finish the Top 10.

Real time – in which the plot of the film covers the same amount of time as it takes to watch – can be a blessing or a curse. When a film calls attention to it, real time can become a gimmicky distraction. On the other hand, it can add a real sense of urgency if the film just allows the events to unfold before us. There are a number of different ways filmmakers use it. For example, the action may be primarily set in one location. Other ways it is used involve hostage situations, characters waiting for something, or simply following characters around from place to place. It can be a tricky thing to pull off perfectly. So I’m deciding that as long as the film makes a real attempt, and the majority of the action takes place in real time, it is fair game. »

Ethan Hunt vs. Ethan Hawke

18 December 2011 11:00 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

While several characters in the "Mission: Impossible" films are taken from the original 1960s TV show, Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt was created specifically for America's movie star extraordinaire. Hunt's M.O. is that he doesn't stop ... ever. The unflappable Imf super-agent will do whatever it takes to stop a madman from unleashing warfare, be it chemical, nuclear, or other.

Who could possibly go head-to-head with such a deadly adversary? We chose New York-based actor, writer and Gen-x slacker icon Ethan Hawke, not so much because he has the necessary skills to beat someone of Hunt's caliber, but because their names are kinda similar.

On the eve of the "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" release, find out who comes out on top in this battle of monumental proportions.

Occupation

Ethan Hunt: Agent of the elite Impossible Mission Force (Imf)

Ethan Hawke: Actor, director, screenwriter and novelist

Advantage: Hawke, »

Countdown to Top Ten 2K11: "Certified Copy"

15 December 2011 4:06 PM, PST | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

Countdown to Top Ten 2K11 is a column with one simple goal: to help you decide what films you need to see before making your end of the year top ten list. Each installment features my thoughts on a critically acclaimed 2011 movie, a sampling of other critics' reactions, the odds of the film making my own list, and the reasons why it might make yours.

This time we're covering "Certified Copy," the acclaimed new film from Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami. But is it a genuine work of art? Let's find out.

Movie: "Certified Copy"

Director: Abbas Kiarostami

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 88%

Plot Synopsis: The author of a new book about the meaning and importance of authenticity in art (William Shimell) joins a fan (Juliette Binoche) for a tour of the Italian countryside. But their relationship might not be as simple or as casual as it first appears.

What the Critics Said: "[Like] a middle-aged 'Before Sunrise, »

Ethan Hawke's Big Regret

5 December 2011 10:39 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

Last month, Ethan Hawke told a French magazine that he was developing a third Before Sunrise film with Richard Linklater and Julie Delpy, but when we caught up with him last night at the Plaza Hotel (where he was presenting a New York Stage and Film honor to Christopher Plummer) and asked him if the movie would really happen, Hawke hedged his bets a bit. »

Why the plan for a third Before Sunrise movie may suck

25 November 2011 6:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Before you dismiss me as some wholly unromantic, cold-hearted cynic let it be known that I loved, lurved, loafed the first two go-rounds with our young, on-the-cusp couple Jesse and Celine in Before Sunrise (1995) and Before Sunset (2004).

As expertly (under)acted by Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, respectively, and directed with an unobtrusive, gentle hand by Richard Linklater, the tale of an American tourist and a Parisian girl who meet on a train in Europe and spend the day and night pontificating, flirting and falling for one another and then reconnect almost a decade later, was fine storytelling.

Brave enough to leave things on an ambiguous note both times, I was more than happy to spend time with intellectual, neurotic Celine and jaded, thoughtful Jesse over the span of two films but when Hawke recently revealed plans to revisit the characters for a third time, my initial reaction was, well, »

Close up: Leveson inquiry sees Hugh Grant tackle film publicity

24 November 2011 9:21 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Hugh Grant, who was lauded for his appearance at the Leveson inquiry this week, had some arguments to air about the film promotion circuit

The big story

This week saw actor Hugh Grant deliver his testimony to the Leveson phone hacking inquiry. Grant, a vocal opponent of invasive press behaviour for many months, gave a thoughtful and measured performance. He no longer appeared "the foppish stereotype Brit," according to the Guardian's Michael White. "More high-minded Gary Cooper in Mr Deeds Goes to Town."

Part of Grant's argument centred on the impression that film stars ought to offer themselves up to promote their films. It was, he said, part of your responsibility to a project to do interviews around it ("If you didn't do a little bit of publicity you'd be a monster"), but far from essential. Grant estimated that around 5% of a film's success came down to whether or not he gave interviews, »

Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy wake up to possibility of Before Sunrise sequel

23 November 2011 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Actors in talks with film-maker Richard Linklater to make follow-up to Before Sunrise and Before Sunset films

"Baby, you're gonna miss that plane …" The ending of Before Sunset, Richard Linklater's second instalment in the romance of Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Celine (Julie Delpy) looked to conclude things sweetly: with Jesse failing to return to the Us, and the couple reuniting properly after their nine-year separation.

But in an interview with French website Allocine, Hawke reveals that he, Delpy and Linklater are negotiating a third outing for the transatlantic couple. "All of three of us have been having similar feelings that we're ready to revisit those characters," said Hawke. "There's nine years between the first two movies and, if we made the film next summer, it would be nine years again, so we really started thinking that would be a good thing to do. We're going to try to write it this year. »

Daily Briefing. Before Sunrise/Sunset 3quel

23 November 2011 9:31 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

I haven't seen a newsy item excite so many cinephiles in quite a while. Talking to Allocine, Ethan Hawke has let on that a followup to the delightfully Rohmeresque films he's made with Richard Linklater and Julie Delpy, Before Sunrise and Before Sunset, may be in the works. The Playlist's Simon Dang has the full video interview and has helpfully transcribed the money quote: "Well, I don't know what we're going to do but I know the three of us have been talking a lot in the last six months. All of three of us have been having similar feelings that we're ready to revisit those characters. There's nine years between the first two movies and, if we made the film next summer, it would be nine years again so we're really started thinking that would be a good thing to do.

Julie Delpy Has ‘The Right Profile’ to Direct Joe Strummer Biopic

22 November 2011 3:21 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Though she’s primarily known as an actress, Julie Delpy also has a bit of directing experience under her belt. Probably the best known film she’s stepped behind the camera on is 2007’s 2 Days in Paris, a romance where she herself starred opposite Adam Goldberg. Delpy has a sequel to that film in the pipeline, 2 Days in New York, where she will this time be having relationship troubles opposite Chris Rock. Yet before that film even gets a release, Delpy has already lined up her next project. Factor in recent reports that she’s been helping Richard Linklater with a new Before Sunrise sequel, and she seems to be becoming quite the prolific filmmaker. The new project that she’s got going is a proposed biopic of Clash frontman Joe Strummer. At one point in time, The Clash was about the biggest punk band in the world, but then Strummer suddenly stepped back from the spotlight »

Directing Bits: Julie Delpy for Joe Strummer Biopic, ‘Harold & Kumar Christmas’ Helmer for ‘Final Girls’, Tate Taylor Drops Out of ‘Tammy’

22 November 2011 1:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] Even as Julie Delpy gears up for a possible third Before Sunrise pic [2] with Ethan Hawke and Richard Linklater, the busy writer-director-actress has attached herself to helm a biopic of iconic rock musician Joe Strummer called The Right Profile. Strummer is best remembered as the frontman of British punk group The Clash, though his musical resume also includes solo work, stints with The Mescaleros and The Pogues, and the soundtracks for Walker and Sid and Nancy. (The film is named after this Clash song [3], from London Calling. The tune even points back to the movies, with lyrics about '40s film star Montgomery Clift.) Few details about the project have been revealed at this time, though we do know the film will follow Strummer's disappearance from the public spotlight in 1982. Variety [4] notes that Delpy could appear in the picture -- seeing as she's acted in nearly all of her directorial efforts, »

Julie Delpy Attached to Helm Joe Strummer Biopic 'The Right Profile'

22 November 2011 10:10 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Just yesterday came news that Julie Delpy might reunite with co-star Ethan Hawke and director Richard Linklater for another installment in their unlikely romance series that started with Before Sunrise, but now Variety reports the actress, who has also directed  and starred in her own films like 2 Days in Paris and The Countess, will also take a seat in the director's chair for a biopic on The Clash frontman Joe Strummer. Titled The Right Profile (after the band's song of the same name from their 1979 album London Calling), the film will focus on Strummer's life and his planned disappearance from the public spotlight in 1982. Strummer's legacy lives on, but the saddest note of his career came when he died in December of 2002, just one month before he and The Clash were going to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It's not clear how »

Julie Delpy to direct Joe Strummer biopic

22 November 2011 9:39 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Delpy's film, The Right Profile, is set to focus on the Clash frontman's famous 1982 disappearance when a publicity stunt turned into reality

He was no stranger to the big screen during his lifetime, working with film-makers such as Alex Cox, Jim Jarmusch and Aki Kaurismäki. Now Joe Strummer of the Clash looks set to be the subject of his own movie after the French film-maker and actor Julie Delpy signed to direct a biopic titled The Right Profile, reports Variety.

Delpy's film will focus on Strummer's famous 1982 disappearance from the spotlight, a stunt planned by the band's manager Bernie Rhodes to help boost flagging ticket sales for a Scottish tour which ended up with the singer and guitarist deciding to go missing . Uncertain about the subterfuge, Strummer travelled to France, where he is said to have taken part in the Paris marathon in April 1982 after a training regime consisting of »

Movie News in 60 Seconds: Julie Delpy Directing The Clash; Found Footage, Yet Again; Critics Move Backfires

22 November 2011 8:00 AM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

She Directs, Too! Yesterday our own Alison Nastassi wrote about the prospects of a third film revolving around Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy (Before Sunrise, Before Sunset). But Delpy also directs, in addition to writing and acting, and she has been attached to make The Right Profile, a biopic of Joe Strummer of The Clash. (Variety) Found Footage Film Finds Favor: Writer/director Bryan Bertino, who previously mined the home invasion sub-genre with The Strangers, has sold a script in another horror sub-genre: found footage. Nothing is known about the story, or the title, though it was once known as Mockingbird; Bertino is not attached to direct. (Deadline) “First” Mentality Backfires on Critics Group: The New York Film Critics Circle moved up their voting date...

[brightcove]970147146001[/brightcove] Total Film is feeling all nostalgic and, yes, a little emotional with the news that a Before Sunrise/Sunset sequel could be coming next year, according to Ethan Hawke himself. In an interview with AlloCiné, the actor mentioned that the sequel that many of us had been hoping for could happen next year (thanks to Thompson on Hollywood for the translation). Speaking for himself, co-star/co-writer Julie Delpy and director Richard Linklater, Hawke said, “All of three of us have been having...
