Interview: Desiree Akhaven's 'Appropriate Behaviour'

29 June 2015 1:23 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

"I love Curb Your Enthusiasm. I want to feel just as entitled as any rich, middle aged white man; that's how entitled I want my protagonist to be." Desiree Akhaven does not consider herself to be a political filmmaker. In her debut feature Appropriate Behaviour (2014), which she wrote and directed, she stars as Shirin, a bisexual Iranian-American, going through a break-up with her long- term girlfriend, Maxine. The film premiered at Sundance in 2014, followed by a successful festival run and a critical reception that signals a cult film in the making. Shirin is a typical hip twenty-something, roaming the gaping chasm between adolescence and maturity in Brooklyn's creative bubble, equally insecure, self-assured, self-absorbed, and dealing with heartbreak.

Production Begins On Adaptation Of Dan Clowes’ ‘Wilson’ Starring Woody Harrelson; Full Cast Revealed

25 June 2015 3:01 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Ok, it’s not an Alexander Payne project as it once was which is slightly less exciting, but we’re still looking forward to Fox Searchlight’s upcoming, “Wilson,” an adaptation of celebrated work by graphic novelist Dan Clowes. His dark, hilarious cynical touch begat many terrific graphic novels and so far, two solid film adaptations: “Ghost World” and “Art School Confidential,” both directed by Terry Zwigoff. Payne was supposed to direct the adaptation of Clowes’ “Wilson,” the script of which he wrote himself, but it appears he’s been caught up with other work. But in his stead is Craig Johnson, who won critical plaudits from Sundance 2014 with the indie “The Skeleton Twins.” “Wilson” already features Woody Harrelson and Laura Dern and joining the cast announced today are Judy Greer (“Arrested Development”) and Cheryl Hines (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”). Harrelson stars as Wilson, a lonely, neurotic and hilariously honest middle-aged misanthrope who reunites with his. »

Judy Greer, Cheryl Hines Join Woody Harrelson’s ‘Wilson’

25 June 2015 8:07 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Judy Greer and Cheryl Hines have joined Woody Harrelson and Laura Dern in Fox Searchlight’s dramedy “Wilson,” which has started shooting in Minnesota.

Craig Johnson (“The Skeleton Twins”) is directing from a screenplay by Daniel Clowes, based on Clowes’ graphic novel of the same name. Mary Jane Skalski and Jared Ian Goldman are producing.

Harrelson stars as a lonely, neurotic middle-aged misanthrope who reunites with his estranged wife (Dern) and gets a shot at happiness when he learns he has a teenage daughter (Isabella Amara) he’s never met. The graphic novel was published in 2010.

Fox Searchlight’s David Greenbaum and Richard Gold are overseeing the project.

Clowes also wrote the adaptations for two of his other graphic novels-turned-movies — 2001’s “Ghost World” and 2006’s “Art School Confidential.”

Greer is in FX’s “Married,” “Jurassic World” and the upcoming “Ant-Man.” Hines starred in “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and “Suburgatory.”

A Historical Background: An Interview with Corneliu Porumboiu

23 June 2015 7:28 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Although Romanian New Wave director Corneliu Porumbiou's The Treasure showed late in the Un Certain Regard section of the Cannes Film Festival, its winning simplicity and droll humor made it stand out as a festival favorite. As slim, funny and diagrammed as a Hong Sang-soo comedy—something the director's last fiction feature, When Evening Falls on Bucharest or Metabolism, also strongly resembled—this little moral tale begins with that most heartbreaking of quotidian details of parenting: a child upset at his parent. Later, while Costi (Toma Cuzin) is reading his boy Robin Hood, Adrian (Adrian Purcarescu), a neighbor he doesn't really know, stops to ask to borrow money. When the neighbor finds out Costi isn't so well off himself—everyone has debts, unforgiving mortgages—Adrian proposes something quite different: the Costi puts up the money to rent a metal detector so that they can search for treasure Adrian's grandfather hinted »

Entourage review – smug, unfunny La bromance

18 June 2015 2:45 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Still eschewing irony, satire or self-awareness, TV’s bros-before-hos celebration of young guys living the celeb dream reaches the big screen

Producer Mark Wahlberg’s Hollywood un-satire Entourage ran for 96 episodes on TV from 2004 to 2011; now he has brought it to the big screen. It’s another bros-before-hos celebration of young guys living the celeb dream – riding smugly around La together in that bromantic four-seater convertible. There are unfunny and unsatirical star cameos, including one from our own Piers Morgan. As ever, where you might expect irony and biting comment, there is uncritical adoration. Super-hot young actor Vince (Adrian Grenier) is super-hotter than ever; he has just blown off his young wife after a few days of marriage and the status quo reasserts itself. He is always accompanied by his boys, his entourage. Lovable deadbeat brother Johnny “Drama” (Kevin Dillon) is still a failing actor – though he’s also supposed to be seriously good. »

Entourage: 9 memorable celebrity cameos from the HBO show

17 June 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Entourage attracted some of Hollywood's biggest names during its glory days on HBO. It felt like everybody, be they A-list actor, director or screenwriter, wanted the chance to send themselves up on the show.

With the Entourage movie hitting UK cinemas this week, we pick out nine stars who brought a bit of Hollywood glamour to our TVs with cameo appearances on the show.

1. James Cameron

The record-breaking Titanic and Avatar director made four Entourage appearances in total, the highlight being his involvement in Vincent Chase's Aquaman movie. What's surprising is just how good an actor James Cameron is... we really believed he was passionate about making that film!

2. Gary Busey

Gary Busey is a force of nature. This much is true. The actor has forged a reputation as an eccentric, and he spoofed that to the max across three episodes of Entourage. Who could forget the moment he poured water all over Turtle? »

Season finale review: 'Veep - 'Election Night': Ma'am up!

14 June 2015 8:01 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of the "Veep" season finale coming up just as soon as I have incompatible shoes for this carpet... Earlier this season, I wondered if the show might find some way for the election to end with Selina as someone else's vice-president, allowing the show to revert to its original set-up. A part of me was amused by the thought of the contortions necessary to get us to that point, while another was dismayed at the idea that the show might have to hit the reset button so hard, given how much fun Selina-as-potus has been. We'll see if season 5 actually goes through with this tiebreaker mess, where Tom James becomes president, and Selina perhaps becomes his veep. But if the level of execution remains as good as it was throughout "Election Night," and this whole great season, then I don't know how much I care exactly what job »

Six-time Emmy champ Billy Crystal now has the perfect episode that could win him his seventh trophy. The recently-aired "Billy's Birthday" segment of "The Comedians" has that perfect mixture of empathy, comedy, range, impact, and screentime that appeals to Emmy voters.  This FX program that premiered in April already has an in with TV academy members of all ages as it's about a veteran comedy legend (Crystal) and a rising young star (Josh Gad) battling over their new TV variety series.

Previous | Image 1 of 4 | NextThe new book from Richard Lewis is ‘Reflections From Hell.’

Chicago – The “Prince of Pain” was in Chicago recently. Richard Lewis, the overtly introspective and hilarious stand up comedian, has written a new book – “Reflections From Hell” – and appeared at Chicago’s City Winery, plus sold out two shows at the legendary Zanies comedy club.

The Brooklyn-born Lewis began performing stand-up comedy in late 1970s. After making numerous appearances on David Letterman in the 1980s, he landed on the sitcom “Anything But Love” in 1989, which ran for four seasons. Other TV projects include “Daddy Dearest,” Showtime’s “Rude Awakening,” and a recurring role (as himself) on “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” Films include “Robin Hood: Men in Tights,” “Once Upon a Crime” and “Leaving Las Vegas.” He popularized the phrase “The _____ from hell,” which contributed to the title of his new book, “Reflections from Hell.”

New Look at Rob Zombie’s Halloween-Set Horror Film ‘31’

1 May 2015 9:52 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

With Rob Zombie's upcoming film 31 taking place in a setting known as "Murder World", you can expect to find plenty of malevolent monsters (of the human variety) around every corner, as evidenced in the latest still from the film, which shows someone who looks like they came from Dr. Frankenstein's lab.

Revealed by Bloody Disgusting, the new still from Rob Zombie's 31 features a very memorable member of the Murder World proceedings. Though the official cast member and character in the still haven't been announced, there are physical similarities between this character and Richard Brake's Doom-Head, who was revealed in a shadow-shrouded still in March, so they very well could be one and the same.

Zombie's 31 was recently acquired for North American distribution by Alchemy. No release date has been revealed at this time, but stay tuned to Daily Dead for further updates on Zombie's latest film. »
