Tiff 2014: Jon Stewart’s ‘Rosewater’ is a cogent, entertaining commentary on an isolated hell and the power of information

13 September 2014 2:29 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Rosewater

Written for the screen and directed by Jon Stewart

USA, 2014

Rosewater, the directorial debut of The Daily Show host and stand-up comedian Jon Stewart, is a modest retelling of one man’s prolonged imprisonment for honestly reporting about Iran. It’s an engaging exercise about political transparency made possible by the modern media that’s obviously close to Stewart’s heart. This is serious content interlaced with sporadic interludes of comedy that in Stewart’s hands sails smoothly along without seeming inappropriate or misplaced.

The amiable journalist Maziar Bahari (Gael García Bernal) falls into the role of responsible witness while filming protests that turn deadly following the questionable re-election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as the President of Iran. Bahari spending time with citizens who oppose Ahmadinejad to get a broader perspective for his writing, forwarding the bloody protest video to media outlets, and taping a silly interview for The Daily Show »

Telluride 2014: ‘Birdman’ is a mad, rambling masterpiece about egotism and salvation

13 September 2014 1:39 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Birdman

Written by Alejandro González Iñárritu, Nicolás Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris and Armando Bo

Directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu

USA, 2014

Birdman is director Alejandro González Iñárritu’s mad masterpiece about one man’s search for relevance and validation. It’s a striking and welcome return to form for Michael Keaton, who has long been absent from the spotlight, bar occasional supporting roles in the likes of The Other Guys and the RoboCop remake. The surprisingly meta world of Birdman is more along the lines of a Charlie Kaufman concoction than something Iñárritu would normally attempt. His crushingly sad takes on existence in Amores Perros, 21 Grams, Babel and Biutiful have inventive plot devices about intersecting lives, but Birdman is wholly about the grand hallucinatory ego of one man and the stories that happen to briefly touch him. Both Keaton and Iñárritu provide us with ample reasons to admire the off-the-wall, swirling existential crisis that is Birdman. »

Toronto: Elvis Mitchell Programs 1st Greenwich Film Fest And Explains Why There Can’t Be Too Many Of Them

11 September 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

I ran into Elvis Mitchell in Toronto, where the former Nyt critic with the hairstyle that always fills me with envy is beginning to figure out what films will play the inaugural Greenwich International Film Festival next June 4-7 in the picturesque Connecticut town. Mitchell, already the curator of Film Independent at Lacma and host of NPR’s The Treatment, just recently took the job as the festival’s Marquee Director. I ask Elvis, since you can throw a dart at a calendar and hit a film festival going on somewhere, what’s the point of yet another?

“It’s a fair question,” he said. “The most interesting film festivals are the ones that create a personal stamp. Like, Toronto is the most democratic of festivals, where you buy your ticket and don’t feel like you’re amidst the invading forces as in Sundance and Cannes. All of the good festivals feel distinctive. »

Telluride: ‘Birdman’, ‘Imitation Game’, ‘Foxcatcher’, ’99 Homes’ Stake Out Oscar Territory As Fest Ends

2 September 2014 12:37 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

In our conversation about his new film Birdman on Sunday — after its triumphant North American premiere at Telluride the night before — I told director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu that I never thought I would see the day when we would be talking about this creator of oh-so-heavy dramas like Amores Perros, Babel, 21 Grams  and Biutiful becoming a front runner to win a Golden Globe for comedy. “I have to laugh about that,” he said. “When I hit 50 last year I really thought I should lighten up a little bit. I have been doing some personal stuff that I thought would get me to a very nice place and understand a lot of things that before I didn’t.” He continued to challenge himself by filming Birdman with the illusion that it is one shot from first frame to last. It’s a device, but I must say it works perfectly for »

Watch: Alejandro González Iñárritu Talks 'Birdman' Risks at Telluride (Exclusive Video)

1 September 2014 3:05 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Alejandro González Iñárritu is a happy man--a little tired, perhaps, as he flew to Colorado from the Venice Film Festival, where "Birdman" earned raves, to introduce the North American premiere Saturday at the Telluride Film Festival, which he described as a "Disneyland for adults," a "heaven" for cinephiles. He laughed as he shot the film for the first time in his life, he added, describing the process as "a joy. Michael Keaton got naked spiritually and physically." When the filmmaker turned 50, his examination of his life and psyche led him to collaborate with a team of writers on this sharp show business comedy that skewers the current Hollywood obsession with superheroes as it reveals the psychological pitfalls of the creative process. This is something Iñárritu knows something about, as he followed up his breakout "Amores Perros" with a series of tough English-language dramas »

'Birdman' director Alejandro González Iñárritu has a problem with the word 'hero'

1 September 2014 9:51 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Telluride — "Birdman" has arrived stateside and made as significant an impact as it did at the Venice Film Festival last week. You won't run into too many people who have managed to catch it at one of its packed screenings who weren't completely blown away by the accomplishment, and for director Alejandro González Iñárritu, it was clearly a much-needed exercise in self-reflection away from the somber fray of his filmography to date. From "Amores Perros" to "21 Grams," "Babel" to "Biutiful," González Iñárritu has marinated in heavy drama. And it's not that "Birdman" is without its own profound gravity — quite the opposite, in fact — but it gave him an opportunity to finally have fun and get outside his own head a bit, albeit through a film that very much exists as an exploration of his own midlife considerations. That made sitting down with him all the more enjoyable. Jet-lagged from Venice »

Make way for Michael Keaton and 'Birdman' in this year's Oscar race

31 August 2014 9:54 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Some are already trying to figure out the "Birdman" backlash after the film dropped to raves in Venice, but sometimes the hype is justified, and make no mistake about it: Alejandro González Iñárritu's manic dissection of an artist desperate for fulfillment outside of commercial success is an out-and-out masterpiece. We wrote some time ago about how the film would be constructed to resemble a single take, and watching things unfold at the Werner Herzog Theater Saturday night, I was definitely paying close attention to that. I counted maybe 12 or 13 cuts that were obvious, but there are surely a number of invisible digital edits throughout (much like how the great "single-take" car scene from Alfonso Cuarón's "Children of Men" was assembled, though you'd never know it). The first shot of the film, honest to God, feels like a 30 minute single tracking shot, but there had to be a digital cut in there somewhere. »

Interview: ‘Birdman’ Director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu on His First Comedy

27 August 2014 3:10 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Recently taking stock of his career, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu began to wonder if he might have gotten stuck in a creative rut of his own making.

“It was like I was on a ladder, and I was getting a little too comfortable,” says the 51-year-old filmmaker as he holds out two clenched fists, miming the grip on that ladder. “I was just doing my work. It was a habit. I was stuck, half out of fear and half out of safety. And I said to myself, ‘I’m going to let go of the ladder.’ ”

For Inarritu, letting go meant taking a stab at his first full-fledged comedy, albeit one with a strong undercurrent of existential despair. In the director’s self-reflexive “Birdman,” Michael Keaton stars as an actor once famous for playing a superhero, now trying to save his »

Review: Alejandro G. Iñárritu's 'Birdman' opens Venice with a sure-fire Oscar bet

27 August 2014 2:38 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Venice - Truth or dare? This is a game played by two characters in magnificently acidic metatextual comedy "Birdman." It's also the film as a three-word question. Truth or dare? Real stage actor or star? You can have your artistic integrity, or you can have a hit. You can go Method, or you can really fly. You can be Riggan Thomson (Michael Keaton), or you can be Birdman (Riggan Thomson). Initially, "Birdman" poses as a trenchant critique of the seemingly endless parade of men in capes that is the summer blockbuster season (Michael Fassbender and Robert Downey Jr. are name-checked as fine actors currently otherwise occupied), but it's actually rather more nuanced than that. The values of the sober-minded art espoused by a poisonous critic (Lindsay Duncan) and the untrustworthy joys of escapist cinema are both probed and prodded in this film. It's impossible for a film featuring the nightmare »

Venice 2014: Read our Venezia 71 programme preview

26 August 2014 9:09 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

This week, the world's oldest and often most unpredictable film festival, the 71st Venice Film Festival, will unroll on the Lido. Twenty films will screen in competition, vying for the prestigious Golden Lion and a further fifty-odd films will show out of competition and in the various sidebars - all but one of which will be world premieres - along with nineteen restored classics and a series of shorts. French composer Alexandre Desplat is heading the jury, which includes Britain's very own Tim Roth. Following on from last year's big bang opening of Alfonso Cuarón's Oscar-engulfing Gravity (2013), fellow Mexican director Alejandro González Iñárritu's (Amores Perros) heavily shrouded Birdman (or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), ought to kick things of in some style if early glimpses are anything to go by.

Criterion Collection: Y Tu Mamá También | Blu-ray Review

19 August 2014 8:55 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

After a decade floating around the Hollywood back lots trading dignity for cash and technical experience on A Little Princess and Great Expectations, Alfonso Cuarón realized he needed to emotionally involve himself in his source material, letting his personal life, his upbringing and his cultural experience bleed into the next project he chose to pursue. Part of the Nuevo Cine Mexicano auteurs who enjoyed considerable international success (Iñárritu’s Amores perros were interchangeably part of the same discourse), the resulting cinematic masterpiece Y tu mamá también was simultaneously a visually stunning portrait of Mexico (the film was shot by master cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki) and the fragility of friendship, and a heartbreaking meditation on the transient nature of youth teeming with life and love and the tragic beauty of naiveté. Unsurprisingly, this Venice Film Festival winning film would become Mexico’s top grossing film of all time in its first weekend. »
