Clothes To Die For review it said so much more than 'boo, sweatshops'

21 July 2014 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The film sifts through the tragedy in forensic detail while never letting you forget that it's a desperately sad story about people

The terrible tragedy of the Rana Plaza building collapse in Dhaka last year, in which more than 1,100 people died, has been covered exhaustively. I think most vaguely news-aware people know what happened, no? And why it happened, too. So how do you make a new documentary about it?

Like this, that's how. After some footage of the immediate aftermath dust, disbelief, wailing, horror This World: Clothes To Die For (BBC2) cuts to a few fashion haul videos. You know, young western women showing off, via YouTube, all the clothes they've just bought at well-known shops for not very much money. Clothes that are very likely to have been made in Bangladesh.

International Test Cricket: England v India | John Bishop's Australia | Clothes To Die For | Royal Marines Commando School | Every Breath We Take: Understanding Our Atmosphere | Virtually Famous | Banshee | The Shooting Gallery

Final day of the second test, a contest which should see an improvement on last week's drab opener. Blame for that dull encounter has largely been aimed at the flat Trent Bridge pitch, though in truth neither outfit looked willing to show their hand at such an early stage. England will look for another strong batting performance from Joe Root, whose record-breaking 10th-wicket stand was one of the first test's few outstanding moments. Gwilym Mumford

Pamela Smart on Affair with Student that Led to Murder: 'I Knew Better'

16 July 2014 3:45 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Pamela Smart would like her time in prison to come to an end. In an exclusive interview with People, the former New Hampshire school administrator - who was convicted in 1991 for persuading her then 16-year-old student lover, William "Billy" Flynn, to kill her husband Gregg - expresses regret and remorse about that affair. But she insists, as she has from the start, that she is innocent, despite her sentence of life without parole. "If I wouldn't have made this horrible choice to get involved with him, would my husband still be alive? Probably," says Smart, in a sit-down interview at »

Billy Flynn, Killer of Pamela Smart's Husband, Is Moved to Work-Release Program

14 July 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

William "Billy" Flynn, who committed the 1990 murder for which Pamela Smart was convicted for conspiracy and sentenced to life without parole, has been moved to a medium-security prison as he approaches his own chance at parole next year. Flynn was transferred last week to a facility in Warren, Maine, as part of a work-release program following his second-degree murder conviction for shooting Gregg Smart, reports the Associated Press. In a much-publicized case that spawned a novel, TV dramatizations and the 1995 movie starring Nicole Kidman, To Die For, Pamela Smart, then 22, a New Hampshire school district media coordinator, was found guilty for manipulating Flynn, »

Gus Van Sant may sign his name to the American remake of 'Death Note'

9 July 2014 2:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Death Note" would have been a very strange Shane Black movie. That alone seems like a reason to have been excited about the possibility of seeing it, but in the grand scheme of things, it seems like a better fit for Shane Black to move on to a new "Predator" movie. Besides, the notion of seeing Gus Van Sant direct a new take on this highly-acclaimed and very strange title is fairly provocative in a different way, and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't excited to see what he does with it. The original manga series was by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, and it tells the story of a high school student who finds a notebook that grants whoever owns it the ability to kill anyone simply by writing their name in the notebook. By using it, he draws the attention of the Shinigami, a disturbing race of inter-dimensional death gods. »

Welcome to the Academy. 10 Interesting Invitations

26 June 2014 1:10 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The Academy welcomes its new members at an invite only event in September, just as we begin to feel the rumblings of Oscar buzz everywhere.

While not every person nominated for the first time for an Oscar in any given year is invited to join the next year (isn't that weird?) it's common practice that they are. So new names like Lupita Nyong'o, Barkhad Abdi, and more established actors like Sally Hawkins and June Squibb will all be voting for the first time this coming season after walking the red carpets as nominees. That's expected. What's far more interesting is the people invited in any given year that have not been nominated.

Here are ten names I want to highlight because they're interesting invitations for one reason or another.

Sean Bobbitt - Cinematographer (12 Years a Slave) - egregiously snubbed last year which might have done it but that's not his only beautifully shot film. »

Kendall Jenner Featured In Givenchy Fall 2014 Campaign

17 June 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Kendall Jenner is featured in the new Givenchy Fall 2014 campaign, marking a huge step in the Keeping Up With The Kardashian star’s modeling career.

Kendall Jenner In Givenchy Fall 2014 Campaign

Kendall, 18, is one of six models featured in the designer’s new fall campaign and wears dark, vampy lipstick and striking, pale make-up, a departure from her usual Kardashian look. The campaign was shot by Mert & Marcus and also features models Jamie Bochert, Mariacarla Boscono and Peter Brant II.

Kendall’s mother Kris Jenner posted a sneak peek of the campaign to Instagram, labeling it “To die for!” Kendall’s famous sisters also took to social media to congratulate her new career milestone – this is Kendall’s very first campaign. Kim Kardashian also announced the news on Instagram, as did Kourtney Kardashian, who captioned the photo, “I am on the floor… Dead! Kendall Jenner in the Givenchy campaign! I just sang some opera. »

Kendall Jenner has a new modeling gig! The 18-year-old reality star just landed a spot in Givenchy's Fall 2014 campaign. In the new promo photo, Jenner appears alongside models Mariacarla Boscono, Jamie Bochert and Peter Brant. Kendall's pretty hard to spot in this ad though, that's her in the bottom left corner! Luckily, she's a little easier to pick out in another sneak peek momager Kris Jenner posted on Instagram with the caption "To die for!"While the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star is definitely a model in her own right -- she's walked runways for Chanel and Marc Jacobs -- it does help to have friends in high places! Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci created sister Kim Kardashian's stunning wedding dress just this year and hubby Kanye West is also a big fan of the brand too. Kendall also walked in the Givenchy runway show back in March. »

20 Reasons Why Everybody Loves The Lion King

15 June 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Disney

The Lion King is one of Disney’s most beloved films. Released in the middle of the famed “Disney Renaissance” that began in the late 1980s with The Little Mermaid and came to a conclusion with Tarzan in 1999, The Lion King remains the highest grossing traditionally animated film of all time. Critically acclaimed and phenomenally popular, it has twice been re-released to theaters, first in 2002 and then again in 3-D in 2011. It inspired a live-action musical that has been running continuously since 1997, becoming the fourth longest-running show in Broadway history. There has been a sequel, a prequel, an upcoming special edition soundtrack, a television spinoff that ran for three seasons, and a new program to air in 2015.

It’s kind of a big deal.

And why not? The Lion King is one of those rare productions that has something for everyone without catering to any single particular audience. It »

This Is the Most Epic Little Mermaid Tattoo Ever

27 May 2014 12:08 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

If you're going to get a Disney tattoo, get a Disney tattoo. Don't just get a little outline of Mickey, or a tiny Tinker Bell tramp stamp (unless that's what you want, in which case, who are we to judge? Your body, your choice). If you're going to get a Disney tattoo, go big or go home. This is a Disney tattoo. It's on the chest of Mark Barela and done by Matthew Tillman. The tattoo first made Buzzfeed's list of "25 Disney Villain Tattoos To Die For." We might not die for it, but we would trade our voice for it, no questions asked. Ursula is obviously the best villain, it's only right to honor her on your body forever. It doesn't appear to be »

James Franco's life is -- of course -- a documentary

14 May 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

It all makes sense now. Sort of. James Franco has been a willing subject in a documentary about his life for the last year. One of his film students at UCLA, Lisa Vangellow, is directing the nearly-completed film, which promises to “examine the incredible stamina and work ethic that James Franco possesses and how he incorporates this into his various areas of artistic interest,” according to Vangellow’s production company’s website.

According to The Wrap, Franco. A Documentary enjoyed access to Franco colleagues, including Seth Rogen and Klaus Biesenbach of New York’s Museum of Modern Art. Curtiss Clayton »

Tribeca Film Review: ‘Every Secret Thing’

27 April 2014 9:34 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mystery scribe Laura Lippman worked as a journalist before shifting her focus to fiction, just as filmmaker Amy Berg (“Deliver Us From Evil,” “West of Memphis”) began in documentaries before adapting Lippman’s novel “Every Secret Thing.” The analogies end there, however, since Berg’s narrative debut lacks much in the way of either poetry or realism, leaving only the clunky dynamics of a fairly predictable missing-persons case — for which screenwriter Nicole Holofcener carries at least part of the blame. Despite its name cast, short of a significant re-edit, not much can save what feels like a Lifetime version of “The Lovely Bones.”

Though the title promises big revelations, “Every Secret Thing” delivers only two twists — one at the beginning, the other at the end. Eight-year-olds Alice and Ronnie (Brynne Norquist and Eva Grace Kellner) are the kind of girls who get picked on by the more popular kids in school. »

The author of Labour Day reflects on the film adaptation

Twice, over the course of my forty years as a publishing writer, I’ve had the good fortune to see a novel of mine adapted into a film.   The luckier aspect of my experience: Twice, my novels have been intelligently adapted, by screenwriters who maintained respect for my work, as well as a necessary recognition of the ways in which the medium of film required that the story be altered.

The first movie adaptation was done by Buck Henry, for the film To Die For (from my novel of the same name), directed by Gus Van Sant. »

Labor Day seems to satirise itself, so I don't have to

23 February 2014 10:10 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This Kate Winslet-starring, wholly unconvincing tale of a fugitive who turns out to be husband material is pure housewives' kitsch

All the signs pointed to Labor Day being a failure: the shamefaced January release, the place where Hollywood buries its dead; the trailers that laboriously gave away its entire story; a unanimous critical pile-on reminiscent of a biker stomping; and the presence at the helm and behind the typewriter of over-promoted adapter-director Jason Reitman, proof positive of the tyranny of good taste.

Based on a novel by Joyce Maynard (who also wrote To Die For), Labor Day gives us Adele, a depressed, agoraphobic single mother (Kate Winslet), seen from the perspective of her devoted 13-year-old son Henry (Gattlin Griffith) via a fatal overdose of portentous voiceover by Tobey Maguire as the adult Henry. At the supermarket they're accosted by an injured man who's just escaped from a prison hospital after an appendectomy. »

Joaquin Phoenix's top 5 movie roles: From Gladiator to The Master

15 February 2014 10:39 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Spike Jonze's techno-love story Her, which is released in UK cinemas this week, centres on a sharply observed leading performance from Joaquin Phoenix as a man who falls gradually in love with his operating system (voiced by Scarlett Johansson).

Last year's Oscars saw Phoenix nominated for The Master, though the film itself was unjustly overlooked, and this year Her made it into the Best Picture race while Phoenix was shut out from the Actor category. We have a sneaking suspicion, though, that Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice could see him back in the running next year.

In the meantime, we take a look back over five of Phoenix's most significant screen roles.

To Die For (1995)

You'll be hard-pushed to find a Phoenix character one could describe as well-adjusted, and his breakthrough performance was as a disturbed - though genuinely good-hearted - teenage sap who falls hard for Nicole Kidman's conniving weather girl. »

Box Office: How 'Labor Day' Went From Oscar Shortlist to Chart Dud

3 February 2014 1:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Back in August, "Labor Day" was shaping up to be one of the most eagerly awaited movies of the year-end awards season. Most of that had to do with the film's classy pedigree, consisting of stars Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin, "Up in the Air" director Jason Reitman, and literary source Joyce Maynard, the "To Die For" novelist. Buzz was building, suggesting that the film might be both a big hit among discerning adult moviegoers and a potential Oscar winner in various categories.

Fast-forward six months, and "Labor Day" suddenly looks like an afterthought, dumped unceremoniously at the end of the dumping ground that is January. Having failed to secure any Oscar nominations or much appreciation among critics, it opened this weekend opposite the Super Bowl and another romance-minded film ("That Awkward Moment"). Pundits predicted a weak opening of around $7 or $8 million, but it earned only an estimated $5.3 million. Debuting in seventh place, »

Review: In Labor Day, Real Men Bake Pies

30 January 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Kate Winslet is a Real Woman. And Josh Brolin is a Real Man. And yet, they cannot be together.  That's the tragedy of the new drama, Labor Day (based on the novel by Joyce Maynard, who also wrote the source book for Gus Van Sant's To Die For). And make no mistake, that's drama read "melodrama", as in Douglas Sirk-ian 1950s level yarns, so unapologetically awash in far-fetched dysfunction and hot-house volatility amid gloriously stretched-thin plausibility. Such is the melodramatic intent and vibe of director Jason Reitman's new uncharacteristic film. (Reitman being the maker of snarky stylish comedies of the now, always about troubled individuals, such as Juno and Up in the Air.) Much of the attention focused upon Labor Day has been about how absurd...
