Review: 'Mr. Robot' wraps up season 1 with triumph, tragedy, and brilliance

5 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Mr. Robot" just concluded its first season. I spoke with creator Sam Esmail about it at length, and I have a review of the finale coming up just as soon as we use a dead puppy oven... "Come on!!!! I need to know what happened!" -Elliot What a fascinating, off-kilter, 100% "Mr. Robot" way to end this season. Everything about this show has always been off: the way characters so often are marginalized in the corner of a frame, or how we're so much inside Elliot's head that we feel like we're losing time right along with him. So it feels right — even if it may be frustrating for some — that the finale skips right past whatever Elliot and Tyrell did at the arcade, keeps Tyrell missing in action entirely, and just jumps us into the strange new world where fsociety has seemingly won and plunged the world into financial chaos. »

Paladin, Michael Mailer partner to release 'Friends And Romans'

17 hours ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Mark Urman’s distribution company and the film’s producer will release the farce in October.

Friends And Romans stars Michael Rispoli and Annabella Sciorra and features eight cast members from The Sopranos including Tony Sirico, Paul Ben-Victor, Anthony DeSando and Katie Stevens. Christopher Kublan directed.

The Staten Island-set story charts an aspiring actor’s bid for respectability as he and his friends stage Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, only for the FBI to mistake the production for a mafia front.

The film opened the 2014 Woodstock Film Festival and won the audience award for best narrative feature at the Boston International Film Festival.

The film will open in late October in Philadelphia and Providence, Rhode Island, before heading to New York in November. »

Showrunner Shuffle: Last Minute Departures Explained by Booming TV Biz

1 September 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The 2015-16 television season has yet to begin, but high drama is already taking place behind the scenes. With less than one month until new shows premiere, four network series have seen their showrunners exit.

In the run-up to the fall season, NBC’s “Chicago Med,” Fox’s “The Grinder” and ABC’s “Blood & Oil” and “The Catch” have all parted ways with the original showrunners.

Why the sudden shuffle? In this era of “too much TV” — as FX Networks chief John Landgraf pointed out at this summer’s Television Critics’ Assn. press tour — insiders report the fallout is serious, with most veteran showrunners already booked on one of the 400-plus shows on air.

“Everyone is trying to jockey for position,” said Landgraf, giving a sobering assessment of the state of the TV biz. “We’re playing a game of musical chairs, and they’re starting to take away chairs. »

Scorsese (Costly) Short Featuring the Director, DiCaprio, and De Niro Has Been Pulled from Venice Festival

'The Audition' poster with Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro. Martin Scorsese short 'The Audition' pulled from Venice Film Festival No major international film festival is worth its mainstream U.S. media salt unless there's at least one screening featuring the latest work of a major Hollywood name. The Venice Film Festival is surely no exception, especially as it's the year's final internationally renowned European movie fest, held shortly before the fall – i.e., awards – movie season begins. Well, one work by a top Hollywood name will no longer be available at Venice: The Audition, a short film directed by and featuring veteran Martin Scorsese, has been pulled out. "We have just been informed by the production that due to unexpected technical problems the film could not be here in time," festival organizers said in a statement earlier today, Sat., Aug. 29, '15.

Elisabeth Moss on Cracking Up, Sexism and the Peggy Strut

It’s been a little over three months since America watched Peggy Olson strut sassily down McCann Erickson's hallway, an unlit cigarette hanging from her lips and a painting of a sexually adventurous octopus tucked under her arm. But while we've all spent our summer replaying that singularly Gif-able scene and mourning the loss of Mad Men, Elisabeth Moss has already moved on: Since wrapping the hit AMC series, she's played the titular role in The Heidi Chronicles on Broadway, and has lined up no fewer than seven movies, including »

TV Is Not the New Film, But It’s Ok That Festivals Are Blurring the Lines

26 August 2015 6:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Peter Debruge: Looks like Toronto is the latest film festival to add a television section to its lineup. These days, everywhere from Sundance to SXSW to the Canadian “festival of festivals,” smallscreen content is getting a big push, which is intriguing — and even ironic — for all sorts of reasons (ironic because the state of distribution being what it is, many of the films in Toronto will end up trickling down to VOD, rather than ever getting a commercial theatrical run). On one hand, the trend isn’t exactly new: Classy longform features like “Carlos” (which premiered at Cannes in 2010), “Top of the Lake” (Sundance 2013) and “Olive Kitteridge” (Venice 2014) made their bows at top-tier film fests before going on to air as miniseries on Canal Plus, BBC Two and HBO, respectively.

But Toronto’s Primetime program — like SXSW’s Episodics, which launched last year — represents something different: Rather than expanding the »

In another 'Sopranos' classic, Tony has to fight off two assassins

26 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to the penultimate installment of our summer trip through "The Sopranos" season 1. When I revisited early seasons of "The Wire," as well as the whole run of "Deadwood," I did separate versions of each review for newcomers and veterans, but over time realized that the newcomers weren't commenting much, if at all, and that it therefore made sense to simply do one review. Any significant spoilers for episodes beyond the one being reviewed will be contained in a separate section at the end of the review; so long as you avoid that, and the comments, you should be fine. Thoughts on the twelfth episode, “Isabella," coming up just as soon as I buy you some sweat socks at The Sports Authority... "To tell you the truth, I feel pretty good." -Tony I'll be honest: even though I'd never specifically recapped these early "Sopranos" seasons, I've written so much about the show over the years, »

Emmy Drama Series Analysis: ‘Mad Men’ vs. ‘Game of Thrones’

20 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On the face of it, they couldn’t be more different. “Mad Men” explored the paradigm-shifting era of ’60s America through the rollercoaster lives of deeply flawed men and women working in the ad industry (plus their assorted friends, family and lovers). “Game of Thrones” weaves an epic saga of treachery, heroics and loss (so, so much loss) out of the skirmish for control over a fantasy kingdom. But they’ve both risen to the top of the heap in one of Emmy’s most crowded competitions to date.

The Odds: It might boil down to just how sentimental Emmy voters feel. AMC’s “Mad Men” has bagged four drama series prizes in the past, and would set a category record with one more win for its acclaimed final run. But HBO’s “Game of Thrones” is arguably TV’s hottest drama and its dragon-sized (if frequently controversial) fifth season clearly connected with voters. »

Script and Direction Don’t Always Get Equal Love Come Emmy Time

12 August 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ask this year’s crop of nominated directors and writers how to distinguish between a well-written and a well-directed episode of television and the answer you will get is largely the same: You can’t. On television shows, particularly cable series where the creative team is small, the relationship between director and writer is often so collaborative that separating the two elements is virtually impossible.

“If something is badly written or directed, I’m thinking, this is poorly written or poorly directed,” says “Silicon Valley” executive producer Alec Berg, nominated for writing the HBO comedy’s second season finale, “Two Days of the Condor.” “But if things are effectively rendered, you’re just thinking, ‘Wow, this is awesome.’ Or, ‘I love this,’ or ‘I can’t wait to see what happens.’ You’re not really thinking about the craft.”

Logically, this would mean that when submitting the episode that represents »
