Looking Back at the Film Class of 1999

2 December 2014 8:00 AM, PST | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Back in 1999, I was a teenage film geek sneaking into R-rated movies. Without question, one of the titles I saw that year which left a lasting impression was The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999), the superb adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's psychological thriller novel starring Matt Damon and Gwyneth Paltrow. The camera moves, performances, costumes, cinematography -- all of it took me on a cinematic journey I had not experienced until then. However, that movie was only a taste of the varied class of movies that made up 1999 at the cinema.

From edgy comedies like Election (1999), to haunting dramas like The Virgin Suicides (1999) (pictured at top), the lead up to the millenium brought forth a year full of one celluloid gem after another. In honor of the Alamo Drafthouse's 12-week tribute to 1999, which runs through mid-December, I thought I'd revisit the year in question and examine how such a vibrant burst of »

Eddie Marsan Joins Patrick Wilson, Jessica Biel in Murder Mystery Movie

24 November 2014 11:35 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Eddie Marsan (“Ray Donovan”) has joined the cast of an untitled murder mystery opposite Patrick Wilson, Jessica Biel and Haley Bennett.

The project was unveiled at Cannes with Sierra/Affinity handling international sales and CAA overseeing the sale of the project domestically. The film has started production in Cincinnati.

Andy Goddard, who helmed the third season finale of “Downton Abbey,” is directing. He’s been attached to the project — formerly known as “The Blunderer” — since early last year. It’s based on Patricia Highsmith’s novel “The Blunderer.”

Producers are Killer FilmsChristine Vachon and David Hinojosa, along with Ted Hope and Sierra Pictures, which is also financing with 120dB Films and Electric Shadow.

Susan Boyd adapted the 1954 novel, which Highsmith wrote in between “Strangers on a Train” and “The Talented Mr. Ripley.”

The 'Black Sea' poster dredges up all the right '90s thriller memories

6 November 2014 11:41 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It takes a high-brow director to deliver quality low-brow entertainment. Just look at thrillers from the 1990s. Say what you will about John McTiernan, but the man knew character as well as he knew action. "Patriot Games" and "Clear and Present Danger" Philip Noyce balanced out his action resume with movies like "Rabbit Proof Fence" and the upcoming "American Pastoral." And Martin Scorsese, David Cronenberg, and Richard Donner shot some of the best genre movies of that decade. So it gives me great hope that Kevin MacDonald, seasoned documentarian and occasionally solid narrative filmmaker ("The Last King of Scotland, "How I Live Now"), can turn the upcoming "Black Sea" into a down-and-dirty thriller a la the best of the '90s. Early glimpses at the film point to something along those lines. Following the submarine thriller’s intriguing, just-the-right-amount-of-silly trailer, a new poster for "Black Sea" arrives with all the right vibes. »

Lkff 2014: Thn Interviews Kim Seong Hun Concerning ‘A Hard Day’

2 November 2014 3:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

One of the highlights of last month’s London Film Festival was the dark and funny Korean thriller, A Hard Day. The film will soon be screening at the London Korean Film Festival, and we got the opportunity to sit down with the film’s director, Kim Seong Hun. Here he discusses making the film and the possibility of an English language remake. You can find our 4 star review of this brilliantly twisted comedy here.

In the history of cinema, from Akira Kurosawa’s Stray Dog, Insomnia and the Christopher Nolan remake, and now A Hard Day, it seems as though cinema always wants to give a police officer a tough time. I was wondering how you went about creating your script.

To be honest the police itself wasn’t really the focus of my intentions or my purpose. I selected this job because fundamentally at the heart if every »

Entertainment Geekly: Which movie from 1999 has aged most poorly?

10 October 2014 11:08 AM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

It's been 15 years since 1999, because that's how time works. 1999 is generally considered a great year for movies. Transformative, even: A diverse array of films, directed by a fleet of up-and-coming filmmakers, all arriving at the multiplex back when cable was lame enough and the internet was slow enough to make the multiplex a place that mattered. If you happened to be young in 1999—or young-ish—it was possible to feel like you were seeing the entire cinematic art form evolve in front of you. Fifteen years ago this month was Three Kings and Fight Club and Being John Malkovich, instant-cult »

Here's a Necessary Reminder of Matt Damon's Most Infamous Shirtless Scene

8 October 2014 10:58 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Matt Damon rings in his 44th birthday today, and we can't think of a better way to celebrate than by looking at one particularly memorable moment in Matt's body of work - his infamous yellow swimsuit scene in 1999's The Talented Mr. Ripley. Yes, Matt's onscreen persona, Tom Ripley, was more disturbing and creepy than hot, but it was hard to not take notice of the then-28-year-old Matt when he strutted his stuff on an Italian beach in nothing but a neon yellow speedo and a pair of shoes. Keep reading to see the best Gif moments involving Matt's itty-bitty swimsuit, and be sure to check out the actor's funniest moments over the years! »

Matt Damon Sure Knows How to Celebrate Getting Older

8 October 2014 8:25 AM, PDT | | See recent Popsugar news »

Matt Damon turned 44 on Wednesday, but he got a head start on celebrating the occasion on Tuesday night. He and his wife, Luciana, marked the big day with dinner at Madeo's in La. Matt was all smiles as he made his way into the restaurant and kept the grin on his face after the meal as he headed back to his car with Luciana. The birthday boy picked up a few gifts during the party and left holding a Diana F Instant Camera and a donkey piñata that was decorated with devil horns and a black mask. Clearly Matt has a sense of humor about getting older, which should come as no surprise, since he's already proven to be hilarious with his many Jimmy Kimmel pranks, Matthew McConaughey impressions, and self-deprecating speeches in the past. One thing that might surprise you, though, is this look back at Matt shirtless in »

Ever since they wrote Good Will Hunting 18 years ago, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have been one of Hollywood's most well-known bromances. But no bromance is complete without some healthy competition, which is why we've gone back through the years since their first Oscar win and looked at their careers. With Samantha Highfill representing Matt Damon in one corner, and Joshua Rivera representing Ben Affleck in the other, here's how the fight breaks down: 1997 Damon: Good Will Hunting Sure, both Damon and Affleck won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, but only one of them was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor, »

Viggo Mortensen explains rooting for the bad guy in 'The Two Faces of January'

26 September 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

In The Two Faces of January—a sumptuous adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s 1964 novel of the same name that opens Friday—Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst portray Chester and Colette MacFarland, a golden couple embarked on a whistle-stop tour of southern Europe’s most glittering capitals.

Exuding wealth, privilege, and a uniquely American post-war pluck, the immaculately turned-out jet-setters’ fortunes grind to an abrupt halt in Athens where they meet an American tour guide named Rydal (Oscar Isaac)—an expat grifter with a straw fedora and palpable lust for Colette.

Plot: A married couple on the run meet up with a charming young con man and involve him in their dilemma in 1962 Greece. Review: Anyone who yearns for the good old days when thrillers were elegant, subtle and romantic will find themselves thoroughly pleased with The Two Faces Of January, a sumptuous and massively enjoyable suspense yarn based on a Patricia Highsmith novel. As Highsmith also wrote the source material for The Talented Mr. Ripley, this film is likely to draw comparisons to »

Review: The Two Faces of January

5 September 2014 4:23 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Michael Cusumano here to review the latest stylistic throwback based on the writing of Patricia Highsmith.

When people gripe “They don’t make ‘em like they used to” films like Hossein Amini’s The Two Faces of January are the kind of movie they mean. It’s adapted from the work of an acclaimed novelist whose books were the source of such beloved films as The Talented Mr. Ripley and Strangers on a Train. It features big stars in sumptuous foreign locales. It is made with a careful attention to detail. It doesn’t dumb things down or clutter the plot up with needless action. It is fair to say I was primed to love this movie, yet it never quite jolts to life. At some point my investment in the story passed from suspense to impatience. It never went so far as indifference, but I was pretty far from the edge of my seat. »

Alexandre Aja to Direct The 9th Life of Louis Drax, Starring Jamie Dornan

27 August 2014 12:10 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

From the revenge-via-circular-saw High Tension to the skin-shredding Piranha remake, director Alexandre Aja has memorably dunked past pictures in the blood bucket. But with his adaptation of author Joe Hill’s novel, Horns, coming out this Halloween, Aja has just signed on to helm another book-to-screen project that’s more psychological thriller than bloodbath: The 9th Life of Louis Drax.

Based on the 2004 novel by Liz Jensen that follows a boy plagued by violent occurrences, The 9th Life of Louis Drax will star actor Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey, The Fall) as Dr. Allan Pascal, who tries to figure out the mysteries surrounding 9-year-old Louis Drax’s near-fatal accident. Aja will direct off a script by first-time scribe Max Minghella (who co-stars in Horns). Shooting on the Miramax film is set to begin this October in Vancouver, Canada. We have the official press release with full details below.
