Review: ‘Roadies’ Needs Direction, But Life on the Bus is Fun With Cameron Crowe

17 June 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Cameron Crowe is a writer defined by his early success. “Fast Times at Ridgemont High,” “Say Anything,” “Almost Famous” and “Jerry Maguire” are all landmark films that, no matter what comes next for the man behind them, will remain indisputable classics for the rest of time. Yes, even after unmitigated disasters like “Vanilla Sky” and “Aloha,” Crowe’s early films remain untarnished.

So it’s almost too fitting that the music journalist-turned-filmmaker kicks off the next phase of his career — a television show he’s created, directed and co-written — by using a legendary rock band, past it’s prime but looking to recapture the magic, as an allegorical device for, well, everything; just as it’s fitting that “Roadies” exemplifies the best of Crowe’s earnest exuberances, as well as the potholes he should now know how to avoid.

Even with both in the mix, the new Showtime drama is mostly a fun ride. »

From Shoestring Budgets to Studio Sci-Fi, Jeff Nichols and Michael Shannon Keep an Even Keel

16 March 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Midnight Special,” opening March 18, is the fourth collaboration between director Jeff Nichols and actor Michael Shannon. A studio movie made with the resources a genre story demands, it’s a far cry from the shoestring budget beginnings of their first effort, Nichols’ 2007 debut “Shotgun Stories.” But it’s also unusual in that the director maintained an independent writer-director voice within a Warner Bros. system that, of late, is focused on cranking out franchise blockbuster fare. That began right at the top with casting choice.

“There’s a lot of this that is a culmination of a relationship that has grown and flourished,” says “Midnight” producer Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, who represented Nichols as an agent on his first film. “I don’t think there’s been a bigger metamorphosis of a filmmaker from uber-indie and scratching it out, to being able to make a studio movie while not getting stuck in the financing bubble of, »

Nichols Retains Indie Mojo With ‘Midnight Special’

15 March 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Like every Hollywood studio, Warner Bros. is obsessed with making and releasing franchise blockbusters that can generate billions of dollars in revenue. But, the studio hasn’t totally abandoned smaller movies with indie sensibilities.

Midnight Special,” which is being released March 18, is an under-$20 million genre movie that marks the fourth collaboration between director Jeff Nichols and actor Michael Shannon. The film, co-starring Adam Driver and Kirsten Dunst, tells the story of a boy with supernatural powers, who’s viewed as a messiah by a cult-like community, escapes with his father (Shannon), and is hunted by the government. Like all of Nichols’ work, the movie is heavier on visual storytelling specificity than on plot particulars.

Nichols, 37, whose previous indie films — including “Mud,” “Take Shelter” and “Shotgun Stories” — were made on shoestring budgets, was able to maintain his independent writer-director voice despite working within the major studio system that is Warners. »

Regression Is a Disappointing Genre Exercise From the Great Alejandro Amenabar

6 February 2016 2:01 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Hey, remember Alejandro Amenabar? For certain viewers, the Spanish director seemed well on his way to becoming one of the great saviors of genre cinema in the late 1990s and early 2000s — the kind of guy who could take otherwise tired horror and science-fiction concepts and give them new life. His breakthrough 1997 hit Open Your Eyes (remade — inferiorly — by Cameron Crowe as Vanilla Sky), offered a mind-fuck psychological sci-fi thriller that was actually moving and not cheap and manipulative. His Nicole Kidman–starring classic The Others was the rare big-twist horror hit that actually improved upon second viewing. Later, the stylized quadriplegic drama The Sea Inside won an Oscar and firmly established Javier Bardem as one of the finest actors of his generation. His last film was 2009’s Agora, an expensive historical drama that dared to suggest the ancient world’s shift towards Christianity wasn’t necessarily the greatest thing »

[Interview] Director Alejandro Amenabar and Star Ethan Hawke Reflect on ‘Regression’

5 February 2016 8:01 AM, PST | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

It’s been fifteen years since writer/director Alejandro Amenabar terrified audiences across the globe with his gothic ghost story The Others. The prolific filmmaker has found success in several other genres, as he’s responsible for such gems as The Sea Inside and Abra Los Ohos (Open Your Eyes), a.k.a. the original Vanilla Sky, but after all […] »
