New to Streaming: ‘Brawl in Cell Block 99,’ ‘The Meyerowitz Stories,’ ‘War for the Planet of the Apes,’ and More

13 October 2017 5:35 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

78/52 (Alexandre Philippe)

There’s been documentaries that analyze entire cinematic movements, directors, actors, writers, specific films, and more aspects of filmmaking, but it’s rare to see a feature film devoted to a single scene. With 78/52, if the clunky title addition didn’t tell you already, it explores the infamous shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho with exacting precision and depth. Featuring interviews with Jamie Lee Curtis, Guillermo del Toro, »

Noah Baumbach Reveals the Key Movies That Made Him Want to Be a Filmmaker

3 October 2017 12:02 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Noah Baumbach has been making movies for more than 20 years, and in that time, has developed a distinctive voice in American cinema. His stories of neurotic New Yorkers are loaded with memorable moments of self-obsession and narcissistic showdowns. But Baumbach didn’t become a filmmaker overnight; he learned much about filmmaking from watching other movies. Raised by novelist Jonathan Baumbach and film critic Georgia Brown, Baumbach grew up surrounded by cinema, and it played a critical role in his evolving love for the medium.

The filmmaker looked back on some of these key influences during a conversation at the Film Society of Lincoln Center shortly before a screening of his latest effort, the ensemble comedy “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected),” which Netflix releases later this month.

The Movie Brats

Baumbach was born in 1969, which placed on the younger end of the spectrum of moviegoers influenced by the movie brat »

The 7 Best Movies Coming to Netflix in October 2017

3 October 2017 7:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For movie lovers, October is the gloriously ghoulish time of year when we celebrate one kind of film above all others. That’s right: Biting comedies about dysfunctional New York Jews who finally decide to air their grievances after decades of resentment! Um… well, maybe Netflix didn’t get the memo. It’s not as though the streaming service isn’t scaring up some choice horror titles in time for Halloween (don’t miss “Raw” or “The Cult of Chucky”), but most of the month’s big new additions aren’t exactly in season.

Case in point: The splashiest arrival is a Noah Baumbach film, and it’s safe to say that “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)” is considerably less frightening than any of the Adam Sandler comedies that Netflix has brought to you before. On the other hand, it’s true that movies can terrify you in a »

‘Super Dark Times’: Watch the Unnerving Opening Sequence From Kevin Phillips’ Teen-Centric Psychological Thriller

29 September 2017 7:40 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

That title? It’s not kidding. In Kevin Phillips’ “Super Dark Times,” darkness settles over a small Hudson Valley town after a horrific accident forever alters the lives of a group of seemingly normal teens, including stars Owen Campbell and Charlie Tahan. A cross between “Stand By Me” and “Donnie Darko,” with plenty of “Stranger Things” evocations for good measure, it’s the kind of film that lovingly recreates the final wonders of childhood while hitting back with some horrific adult truths. High school, what a thing.

Per the film’s official synopsis, “Zach (Campbell) and Josh (Tahan) are best friends growing up in a leafy Upstate New York suburb in the 1990s, where teenage life revolves around hanging out, navigating first love and vying for popularity. When a traumatic incident drives a wedge between the previously inseparable pair, their youthful innocence abruptly vanishes as their lives spiral into violence. »

With ‘The Meyerowitz Stories,’ Noah Baumbach Is Shooting on Film Again (And He’s Not Going Back to Digital)

27 September 2017 2:17 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With his “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected),” filmmaker Noah Baumbach is returning to familiar — and fertile — territory, thanks to the eponymous family at the heart of the feature. Kitted out with a cast that include Adam Sandler in the somehow-still-rare dramatic role, Dustin Hoffman, Elizabeth Marvel, Emma Thompson, and Ben Stiller, familial dysfunction, a Baumbach mainstay, drives the film’s plot, but Baumbach’s ear for dialogue and hard-won emotion keep it chugging right along. The film also heralds Baumbach’s return to shooting on film — in this case, Super 16 mm — after going digital for his last trio of features. And, to hear him tell it, he’s not going back.

At a New York Film Festival press conference this afternoon, Baumbach got honest about his flirtation with digital, and why he’s all about film…again.

Jake Gyllenhaal Reacts to ‘Jake Doing Things’ Memes: ‘Sandwiches Are Hilarious!’

22 September 2017 7:03 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Jake Gyllenhaal isn’t afraid to poke fun at himself. On Wednesday, he appeared on Conan where host Conan O’Brien noted that the Oscar-nominated actor keeps it so old school that he doesn’t have any social media.

“I’m a drag and drop kinda guy. I don’t know shorthand commands,” Gyllenhaal, 36, admitted. “I don’t like ‘Command Whatever’ to get the thing. I just take my mouse and drag it over. And my friends are generally embarrassed.”

O’Brien then noted that though Gyllenhaal keeps it old school, many of his fans are active on social media, referencing one meme account called “Jake Doing Things” that posts photos of the actor marveling at everyday life.

In one group of photos, a 2009 Gyllenhaal was amazed by the falling snow.

‘BoJack Horseman’ Season 5 Is Happening, Confirms ‘Clingy Netflix Exec’ — Watch

21 September 2017 9:25 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Your favorite depressed talking horse is set to return. Netflix just announced that “BoJack Horseman” has been picked up for a fifth season, meaning we’ve yet to see the last of the ’90s sitcom star whose present day veers between the profound and the profane — often within the span of a single episode. The streaming service announced the news with a quick video, which you may avail yourself of below.

‘American Vandal’: The Creators Discuss That Ending and the Lessons for a Potential Season 2

20 September 2017 12:52 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: The below interview includes spoilers for “American Vandal” Season 1.]

When you think about it, “American Vandal” could have only ended one way. Like its many docuseries predecessors, the question of Dylan Maxwell’s (Jimmy Tatro) innocence or guilt may have powered the story forward, but as the show fleshed out characters like amateur sleuth Peter Maldonado, his partner in videography Sam Ecklund (Griffin Gluck), or the multitude of students and teachers who make this universe, there was always room to make the season’s ending something less tangible.

In the farewell episode, Twitch-based evidence leads Dylan to be exonerated in the minds of Peter and the school powers that threatened his expulsion in the first place. But if Dylan wasn’t the one who drew the dicks, who was?

For fans of true crime documentaries, “We may never know” isn’t just an appropriate answer, it’s the only one that made sense for a series that pays tribute to the classics. »

A Double Dose of Noah Baumbach Comes to Netflix Next Month, Plus ‘Before Midnight,’ ‘Donnie Darko,’ and More

20 September 2017 9:33 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

While October usually signals the arrival of all sorts of spooky, creepy, scary, and otherwise appropriately Halloween-themed films to both theaters and streaming services, this month’s batch of new titles on Netflix offers up a delightfully wide variety of choices that aren’t all tied to the year’s primary celebration of fear. Sure, those titles are there — from more mainstream chillers like “Cult of Chucky” and the new original “The Babysitter,” to more offbeat picks like the cannibal coming-of-age tale “Raw” and the seminal “Donnie Darko” — but this month’s incoming list has more than enough for movie fans who don’t want to shriek at their televisions.

‘Marvel’s The Punisher’ Trailer: Frank Castle Is Ready to Avenge His Family One Bullet at a Time

20 September 2017 7:55 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

When “Marvel’s Daredevil” introduced Frank Castle in Season Two of the series, fans had every right to be skeptical. The violent, anti-hero of the comics had faltered in two previous big screen interpretations, but the third time was truly the charm. Jon Bernthal’s tortured and disgraced war hero blazed a bloody and bullet-ridden trail through Hell’s Kitchen, bringing along an intriguing mystery and backstory that eventually lured Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll) onto his side.
