Review: Chevalier

11 August 2016 6:20 AM, PDT | Pure Movies | See recent Pure Movies news »

This is the Pure Movies review of Chevalier, directed by Athina Rachel Tsangari and starring Vangelis Mourikis, Nikos Orphanos and Yorgos Pirpassopoulos. Written by Dr. Garth Twa. Greece is renowned for many things: it is the land of myth, of Dionysian revels, of octopuses hung like pantyhose on clotheslines to dry. It is the land of our first storytelling, birthplace of epics, of comedies, of tragedies; but not, until now, cinematic stories. As a film industry, there hasn’t been much to talk about except, of course, the exceptions, like Theodoros Angelopolous (Ulysses’ Gaze, 1995, Eternity and a Day, 1998—both won big at Cannes) and Costa-Gavras, who, really, made American movies, like Missing (1982) with Jack Lemmon, or Mad City (1997) with John Travolta, or French movies like Z (1969). ‘Greek’ films like Never On a Sunday (Jules Dassin, 1960) and Zorba the Greek (Michael Cacoyannis, 1964) were Greek fetishisation made palatable to tourists by having non-Greek lead actors being swarthy. »

Jonathan D. Krane, ‘Look Who’s Talking’ Producer, Dies at 65

7 August 2016 1:41 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jonathan D. Krane, who produced the highly profitable comedy “Look Who's Talking” and its sequels and was a frequent collaborator with John Travolta, died Monday. He was 65.

His wife, Oscar-nominated “M*A*S*H” actress Sally Kellerman, announced the news on Facebook earlier this week. Her manager, Bruce Tufeld, also confirmed Krane’s death to Variety.

“So sorry to report the sudden passing on Monday of my beloved husband Jonathan D. Krane,” Kellerman wrote. “Thankfully our twins Jack and Hannah are both with me. I am totally devastated.”

Krane founded Management Company Entertainment Group (McEg) in the late ’80s, which quickly rocketed to success with the 1989 release of “Look Who’s Talking,” which was directed by Amy Heckerling. It starred Travolta as a cab driver who starts dating a woman played by Kirstie Alley, the mother of a snarky, troublesome toddler, voiced by Bruce Willis.
