Toronto Film Review: ‘Eric Clapton: A Life in 12 Bars’

Toronto Film Review: ‘Eric Clapton: A Life in 12 Bars’
“Clapton is God” graffiti began appearing — to the guitarist deity’s considerable annoyance — very early in his career, which now spans more than five decades. He certainly comes off as a fallible mortal in longtime friend Lili Fini Zanuck’s “Eric Clapton: A Life in 12 Bars,” which tells the legendary British musician’s story via a wealth of archival footage and (mostly) latter-day voiceover commentary. The Showtime feature is slated for limited theatrical release early next year, prior to its Feb. 10 cable bow.

As absorbing as much of this material is, the lengthy feature does not feel definitive: It commits the typical music-doc sin of devoting nearly all its time to a celebrated first professional decade, then hastily skimming past all events since. Further, the limited attention paid to later years dwells entirely on already amply chronicled struggles with addiction and personal tragedy, basically ignoring any music made after 1972. Though it all, Clapton

Venice 2015: 'From Afar' wins Golden Lion

  • CineVue
The red carpet has been walked upon, the Spritz has been supped and the lion has roared. This year's Golden Lion selection is yet another surprise choice, the perfectly serviceable but by no means extraordinary Venezuelan-set drama From Afar, which follows the unlikely relationship between a maker of false teeth and a Caracas street tough. Lorenzo Vigas' film is an assured debut with two fine performances, especially from Alfredo Castro, familiar to world cinema-inclined audiences as Pablo Larraín's muse in Tony Manero and Post Mortem. Head of the Jury Alfonso Cuarón perhaps shows his generosity to another Latin American filmmaker in awarding the Silver Lion to Pablo Trapero for his Martin Scorsese-inspired true crime thriller The Clan.

The runner-up award in the Grand Jury was awarded to Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson for their superb R-rated stop motion masterpiece Anomalisa, for me the best film of the competition.

Venice 2015: 'For Your Love' review

  • CineVue
★★☆☆☆ Following a Malickian break between films - his debut Round the Moons Between Earth and Sea was released in 1997 - Giuseppe M. Gaudino tells with For Your Love (2015), the final entry to compete for the Golden Lion at the 72nd Venice Film Festival, a tale of ordinary madness told in an extraordinary but often scattergun way. The woman on the verge of as nervous breakdown is Anna Ruotolo Scaglione, played by Italian actor and director Valeria Golino. A long musical introduction Neapolitan dialect introduces us to Anna as a "capascaqua" or "featherbrain" as the subtitles would have it. However, right from the start Gaudino suggests that Anna is suffering from a quite severe mental illness.

Anna's general unhappiness is already evident from her face, but as if that wasn't enough For Your Love is mostly played out in an ill-conceived monochrome palette reminiscent of those adverts for Calvin Klein's Obsession.

Music and Sex #7: Battles of the Band

Music and Sex: Scenes from a life - A novel in progress (first chapter here).

As 1980 got going, Walter was distracted from Janie’s absence by progress on the band front. Garrick had found an electric guitarist, Tom O’Reilly. Though still lacking bass and drums, they decided to try putting together some new songs and practicing some covers -- because as TomO (as he styled himself) pointed out pragmatically, a good set of rockin’ covers would get them gigs at the frats that lined the south side of 114th St. Over a round of beers at the Marlin, a brightly lit bar that had less visual flair than a high school cafeteria, but the cheapest beer near campus, they decided to take turns suggesting covers.

Walter led off: "For Your Love." He liked it because of its harpsichord riff.

"Fuck that!" blurted TomO. "I was told we'd be covering Nuggets-type songs.

The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 7 Recap: Aching For Your Love

This week on The Vampire Diaries, we start where we left off in last week’s episode with Damon in Elena’s room, where she tells him that she still can’t remember anything good about him or the memories they shared. She thought that once she saw Damon face-to-face, the memories would come back, but nothing is working. She feels bad and apologizes to Damon, but he can’t stand to look at her with her inability to share his strong emotions. I guess you can’t blame Elena for trying because she could’ve blown Damon off, but you can tell that she can’t … Continue reading →

Watch Eels Perform "What I Have To Offer" In Another 'This Is 40' Deleted Scene

So, um, yeah… I still haven't seen This Is 40. Probably won't, to be honest. Though, I must say, I'm more than a little intrigued by all the musical cameos Judd Apatow left on the cutting room floor. I mean, he's always struck me as the sort of director who writes with the DVD deleted scenes section in mind, but this really takes the cake.

Previously… Listen Up: Eels – "Calling For Your Love"

In another unused clip that surfaced online today, Eels' Mark Oliver Everett pops by the offices of Paul Rudd's indie record label stooge to perform a gorgeous rendition of "What I Have To Offer"… and then announce he's hopping over to Warner Bros. Records. Why Everett thinks it's one of the best songs he's ever written (it isn't) or why he insists on talking in third person is beyond me. It's not quite Billie Joe Armstrong

Jones' Brain Aneurysm Scare

Jones' Brain Aneurysm Scare
Actress Tamala Jones has revealed she suffered a brain aneurysm when she was 23, but kept it secret over fears the health scare would ruin her career by making her "look weak".

The Everybody Hates Chris star has told of her terror after a blood vessel in her brain ruptured, causing her to lose feeling in the right side of her body and collapse to the floor in her bathroom.

Jones recalls struggling through a day's work shooting the U.S. sitcom For Your Love before finally admitting herself to hospital, where doctors diagnosed her with the brain disorder.

She tells Black Enterprise, "I went to the hospital after work and the doctor thought that it was a miracle that I was even alive, walking or talking, or that I even worked an entire day before I got to him. After that, I started having seizures. I had MRIs (and) cat scans, and they found out that my aneurysm actually burst. Had it been on another side of my brain I probably would have been paralysed forever - it was on the left side of my brain... They said once that blood dried up I would get my feeling back."

It took Jones three months to recover and now she is hoping to use her experience to urge others to seek medical attention as soon as they feel any unusual pains.

She adds, "I hid the fact that I had an aneurysm for a very long time. I was embarrassed and I just felt like no one needed to know because it made me look weak... But I felt like it was my duty as a survivor to speak about it.

"I mention the aneurysm to anybody that I can... because it's something that happened to me and something that can happen to anybody in this world. If you are given warning then you can probably save your own life."

New Type: Just For Your Love Review

I'm slowly catching up with Hiroki's body of work. Not too long ago I watched Girlfriend, Someone Please Stop The World which turned out to be a perfect entry film to get acquainted with this director. New Type: Just For Your Love is a different beast altogether though. A film that is probably best appreciated by hardened Hiroki fans who know what to expect. Only then can you appreciate the unique feel this film bears.

Hiroki stems from the world of pinku cinema, but once he transformed himself into a regular drama director he developed his own particular style of drama and kept at it. No wonder I was pretty surprised to learn Hiroki was very interested in doing other genres. For all those wondering what such a film would be like, New Type will give you all the answers you need. Beware though, it just might not be what you were expecting.

'View' this: CBS greenlights talk show with Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert

CBS is getting into the daytime talk-show business. Watch your back, "The View."

The network has picked up a daytime show for the fall that will feature the likes of Sara Gilbert (who also developed the show), "Early Show" anchor/"Big Brother" host Julie Chen and Sharon Osbourne, among others. The show will "examine topical events and contemporary issues through the eyes of mothers," the network says.

It will also serve as the replacement for the canceled soap opera "As the World Turns," which leaves the air in September after 54 years.

Along with Gilbert ("Roseanne," "The Big Bang Theory"), Chen and Osbourne, the currently untitled show will also star Leah Remini ("The King of Queens"), Holly Robinson Peete ("For Your Love") and Marissa Jaret Winokur ("Hairspray").

"We were looking for a new format that would speak to the core [daytime] audience but also have the topical and entertainment value to go even broader,
