The Poignant, Romantic and Bleak Snowden: Jim Hemphill’s Home Video Recommendation

16 December 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

One of the best films of 2016 begins streaming this week, as Oliver Stone’s Snowden drops on iTunes and Amazon. Stone has long been one of our most versatile directors, having made horror flicks (Seizure, The Hand), a Vietnam trilogy (Platoon, Born on the Fourth of July, Heaven & Earth), a musical (The Doors), historical epics (Alexander, Nixon), a sports film (Any Given Sunday), a love story (World Trade Center), business movies (the two Wall Street movies), and three audacious and darkly funny crime pictures (Natural Born Killers, U-Turn, Savages). With Snowden, Stone synthesizes all of his strengths in one […] »

Watch This: Any Given Sunday makes pro football look downright Shakespearean

14 November 2016 11:00 AM, PST | | See recent The AV Club news »

One week a month, Watch This offers movie recommendations inspired by the week’s new releases or premieres. This week: In honor of Kenneth Lonergan’s magnificent Manchester By The Sea, we’re giving a standing ovation to other movies written and/or directed by playwrights.

Any Given Sunday (1999)

Oliver Stone employs his hyper-stylized aesthetics for a titanic, from-all-angles portrait of professional football in Any Given Sunday, an all-star 1999 film that brazenly strives for Shakespearean grandeur, thanks in part to the scripting of playwright-turned-screenwriter John Logan. At the center of this gladiatorial gridiron epic is Tony D’Amato (Al Pacino), wearied championship coach of the Miami Sharks, who’s grappling with numerous dilemmas, from the disloyalty of owner Christina Pagniacci (Cameron Diaz) to his lovelorn loneliness to—most crucially of all—a severe injury to his veteran quarterback Cap Rooney (Dennis Quaid). The last of those problems manifests ...

‘Playback’: Aaron Eckhart on ‘Sully,’ ‘Bleed for This’ and Working With Legends (Listen)

6 October 2016 10:39 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Welcome to “Playback,” a Variety podcast.

On today’s episode Jenelle Riley and I discuss this year’s crop of 10 Actors to Watch, being honored at the Hamptons International Film Festival. Nate Parker’s “The Birth of a Nation” is also opening this weekend, amid a torrent of controversy and a 60 Minutes special that appeared to just make things worse. And Mel Gibson’s “Hacksaw Ridge” is around the corner, its formerly embattled director looking to find purchase within the industry after his own highly publicized controversies.

Later on I’m talking to Aaron Eckhart, who has a pair of films in theaters this fall: Clint Eastwood’s “Sully” and Ben Younger’s “Bleed For This.” Both movies saw their world premieres at the Telluride Film Festival, which Eckhart attended and adored, and both projects see him taking on real-life characters. In “Sully” he stars as Chesley Sullenberger’s unsung co-pilot Jeff Skiles, »

Matt Zoller Seitz on ‘The Oliver Stone Experience’ and the Decline of American Cinema

15 September 2016 9:21 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It’s safe to say Oliver Stone isn’t exactly fashionable these days, a matter apparent in how the trailer for Snowden instantly became a punching bag on this writer’s Twitter feed. Yet film critic Matt Zoller Seitz’s behemoth of a book, The Oliver Stone Experience, should, with any luck, shift the conversation. Framed as a series of interviews with Stone conducted over the past half-decade or so and interspersed with everything from personal photos to studio-executive notes to archival reviews, this feels like the definitive text on someone once at the center of American cinema. It might not change anyone’s mind on Stone’s films, but with the man being such a raconteur, you’ll still find yourself tearing through it.

We were lucky enough to chat with Seitz over the phone about his undertaking, as well as some thoughts on American politics and cinema in general. »

Newswire: Here’s what’s coming to Amazon Prime in September

22 August 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

Next month brings an avalanche of original series to Amazon Prime. Should you be so inclined you can watch new offerings from Tig Notaro, whose One Mississippi debuts September 9, or (sigh) Woody Allen, whose Crisis In Six Scenes emerges on September 30. There’s also Fleabag, an acidic comedy imported from Britain, as well as new episodes of the streaming service’s beloved Transparent. And if that doesn’t keep you busy enough, there’s a plethora of movies popping up, as well. Those include Todd Solondz’s Wiener-Dog, an Amazon Original that debuted at Sundance earlier this year, and Denis Villeneuve’s Sicario. Meanwhile, you can also pay tribute to Michael Cimino by taking in Heaven’s Gate or spend some time with classics like Roman Holiday and Full Metal Jacket. The full list is below.

LL Cool J Goes From Mc to Emcee as a Proven TV Host

21 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

For three of the four big kudocasts, every year prompts a fresh round of speculation as to who will host the next installment, followed by intense scrutiny of the host’s various failings. For the past few Grammys, however, the hosting dilemma has been resolved: LL Cool J, who has been tapped for the Feb. 15 kudofest.

How did LL manage to succeed where so many other comedians, actors, and media personalities have failed? Per the rapper, being aware of his limited role in proceedings has proven to be the key.

“I’m not delusional,” he says. “I don’t think I’m Billy Crystal. I don’t think I’m Ellen (DeGeneres) or Whoopi (Goldberg). So I approach it with a place of humility, where I know the show isn’t about me, it’s about the artists and them having a great moment, and I’m there as a fan enjoying the ride. »
