Movie Premiere Red Carpet Interviews With Cast of The Big Sick

13 June 2017 7:53 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Love crosses all racial boundaries.

Based on the real-life courtship between Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, The Big Sick tells the story of Pakistan-born aspiring comedian Kumail (Nanjiani), who connects with grad student Emily (Kazan) after one of his standup sets. However, what they thought would be just a one-night stand blossoms into the real thing, which complicates the life that is expected of Kumail by his traditional Muslim parents. When Emily is beset with a mystery illness, it forces Kumail to navigate the medical crisis with her parents, Beth and Terry (Holly Hunter and Ray Romano) who he's never met, while dealing with the emotional tug-of-war between his family and his heart.  The Big Sick is directed by Michael Showalter (Hello My Name Is Doris) and produced by Judd Apatow (Trainwreck, This Is 40) and Barry Mendel (Trainwreck, The Royal Tenenbaums).

70th Cannes Film Festival Review – The Meyerowitz Stories (2017)

24 May 2017 5:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), 2017.

Directed by Noah Baumbach.

Starring: Adam Sandler, Dustin Hoffman, Ben Stiller, Emma Thompson, Elizabeth Marvel, and Grace Van Patten.

Synopsis:

The estranged, middle-aged children of a New York artist reconnect with each other in the wake of their father’s illness.

After a spate of juvenile comedies, Adam Sandler has found a nurturing guide in the form of Noah Baumbach. The Greenberg and Margot at the Wedding director serves up prime material for Sandler and the rest of his A-list cast to sink their teeth into, and it’s a joy to watch.

In The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), Sandler plays Danny, one-third of the offspring of Dustin Hoffman’s Harold, a New York sculptor and university lecturer. The thrice-divorced Harold is on his latest wife, an eccentric drunk named Maureen (Emma Thompson), and the couple split their time between comfortable homes in the city and countryside. »

Cannes 2017: The Meyerowitz Stories, Before We Vanish and Top Of The Lake: China Girl [Quick Takes]

23 May 2017 1:25 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Editor's Note: "Quick Takes," as the name suggest, are initial impressions on movies from our man-on-the-ground at Cannes.

The Meyerowitz Stories, dir. Noah Baumbach

The Meyerowitz Stories is a run off the mill portrayal of the modern American family. Gen X siblings dealing with their Boomer father, his wives, illness and trying to navigate the tangled mess of inconsiderate tripe the old man left them in since they were born.

It was like watching The Royal Tenenbaums without the twee pastel and cooky shite of a cupcake aesthetic that Anderson gives to anything. Same humor, same narration, same unfathomable void behind everything.

Seeing Adam Sandler actually portraying a responsible adult for once was refreshing, but that's really nothing [Continued ...] »

Cannes Film Review: ‘The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)’

21 May 2017 4:48 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s not easy being raised the child of a celebrated artist. Truth be told, it’s not so great being raised the child of a minor, mostly unrecognized artist either, which is closer to the dynamic writer-director Noah Baumbach wants to explore with “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected),” a chatty New York comedy featuring the best role in 15 years for Adam Sandler. It’s the story of a messed-up clan that seems never to have heard of therapy, but could definitely use it, and the family crisis that conveniently allows them all to say their peace.

Sandler plays Danny Meyerowitz, the oldest son of seventysomething New York sculptor Harold Meyerowitz (Dustin Hoffman, who’s always been funny, but gets to really sink his teeth into some of his best material here). With no shtick to fall back on, Sandler is forced to act, and it’s a glorious »

The first trailer for Sundance favourite The Big Sick with Kumail Nanjiani, Zoe Kazan and Ray Romano

3 May 2017 3:49 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

The first trailer for Sundance sensation, The Big Sick has made an appearance, and we’re very happy about it. The romantic comedy looks to break with the norm, removing the requisite sick bag from this genre to give audiences something just a little more real to sink their love filled fangs into.

Related: The Big Sick Sundance 2017 Review

When we say real, the story is actually penned by lead actor Kumail Nanjiani and his real life wife Emily V. Gordon who have based the story on their own actual interracial love story. Kumail plays himself and is joined by Zoe Kazan to play Emily. Ray Romano and Holly Hunter play Emily’s parents, who Kumail is forced on in the trailer. The trailer goes from 0-100 real quick with Emily and Kumail just after a one night stand to Kumail attending the hospital after Emily is put into an enforced coma, »

Kumail Nanjiani Leads First Trailer for Sundance Hit ‘The Big Sick’

2 May 2017 2:14 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The Big Sick went over big at Sundance, where many critics praised it as a genuinely emotional twist on standard romantic comedy cliches. In our review, we said, “In every conceivable way is this film a crowd-pleaser, pushing you to laugh and laugh until you cry.”

Produced by Judd Apatow, directed by Stella and Wet Hot American Summer alumnus Michael Showalter and written by Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani, The Big Sick is based on the real-life relationship between Nanjiani and Gordon, with Nanjiani playing a version of himself while Zoe Kazan stands in for Gordon. The couple go from a one-night stand into something more serious, to the chagrin of Kumail’s traditional Muslim parents. Things are complicated further when Emily is stricken with a mysterious illness, forcing Kumail to deal with the medical crisis alongside Emily’s parents, played by Holly Hunter and Ray Romano.

Wes Anderson Movies Ranked From Worst To Best

1 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Let’s get this out of the way right from the top: Wes Anderson has never made a bad movie, and — in all likelihood — he probably never will. He’s too particular, too immaculate, too in command of his craft. Of course, the fact that he has always been so sure of himself only makes it more tempting to chart the progress of his career and to measure his films against each other. Or maybe it’s just fun because there are still only eight of them, and everyone seems to have their own favorite. Who could say?

Wes Anderson has one of the most original voices of any filmmaker working today, but his movies are full of clues as to which directors have influenced him the most. From Orson Welles to François Truffaut to Federico Fellini, some of the most iconic filmmakers in the history of cinema have had a hand in inspiring Anderson’s distinctive style. Here are 10 films that had a lasting impact on the indie auteur.

Wes Anderson’s ‘Isle of Dogs’ Poster Has Lots of Akira Kurosawa (and Dogs)

26 April 2017 9:31 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

…Let’s hope the dogs don’t die.

On Tuesday, the first poster for Wes Anderson’s newest feature film since 2014’s The Grand Budapest Hotel was released. Whilst not much is known about the story of Isle of Dogs, its poster reveals small details about what to expect, and, more importantly, the influence of Akira Kurosawa on the stop-motion animation.

Set in Japan, the poster’s large, red font places the Japanese title at the center, with its English translation held within the script. Wes Anderson’s posters usually have either one clear defining image at the forefront or a depiction of the ensemble cast, so Isle of Dogs is a slight departure from what Anderson’s audience are used to.

The poster for The Royal Tenenbaums places family at the center while Anderson’s classic Futura font title stayed beneath the family as something that was not meant to draw attention. Moonrise Kingdom »

Wes Anderson’s Manly Men

20 April 2017 10:51 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

In search of male desire in a twee world.

Here’s a thesis: with the singular exception of his animated adventure story, Fantastic Mr. Fox, the movies of Wes Anderson are fundamentally about nice, fiery desire. But while a number of his movies explore this through the conventional terrain of the heterosexual relationship and its discontents — The Royal Tenenbaums and Moonrise Kingdom come to mind — others explore more curious expressions of desire, leaving Anderson’s plain and plaintive ladies behind. Shared aesthetic characteristics, from the constantly reprised Cornell boxes to the carefully referenced dead Eastern European novelists, are subject of much ruthless discussion among Anderson acolytes. And, considering Anderson’s diligent cooperation with turning a collection of essays and interviews into a $35 coffee table book, that seems to be the dissection that Anderson embraces. But what are those other, male-centric movies actually about? Most critics, when forced to give something like a serious and meaningful answer, will »

All This Panic review – shrewd but claustrophobic teen-life doc

23 March 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The film about a group of young New York City teenagers might not tell you all that much that is truly revelatory, but it’s well made and wide-ranging

There’s a symphony of uptalk and a chorus of vocal fry in this documentary about a group of teenage girls growing up in New York City, and also a small but distinct drawl of entitlement. It’s a film with a shrewd, ambient sense of atmosphere, tonally controlled and well shaped in the edit. It may not tell you that much – or perhaps anything – new. But the girls’ personalities come across with great clarity. Each is introduced with a first name flashed up in big sans serif lettering, the film’s one obvious stylistic indulgence, and maybe even a nod to Wes Anderson: one participant rather knowingly references Margot Tenenbaum, Gwyneth Paltrow’s character from The Royal Tenenbaums. They hang out with each other, »

‘The Royal Tenenbaums’ Blu-ray Review

24 January 2017 2:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Gene Hackman, Anjelica Huston, Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Anjelica Huston, Luke Wilson | Written and Directed by Wes Anderson

The final part of Wes Anderson’s “Owen Wilson trilogy” (the last Wilson co-wrote) is a typically oddball family opera. From the opening scene we see the Anderson tropes: A muzaked cover of a classic rock tune (Hey Jude); an erudite narrator (Alec Baldwin) presenting a cast of quirky characters; meticulously stage-crafted framing; precision pans and zooms; and photography swathed in bold primary colours.

The Tenenbaum children were once destined for social excellence. Chas was a precocious business genius; Richie was a champion tennis player; and adopted daughter Margot was a promising playwright. Jump past their 20s, however, and we find that Chas (Ben Stiller) is a widower who’s so obsessed with his children’s safety that he’s forgotten how to live; Richie (Luke Wilson) threw away »

Framing Wes Anderson’s Memories

17 January 2017 9:43 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The frames-within-frames Wes Anderson uses in his work show his filmography’s obsession with memory.The Grand Budapest Hotel (Anderson, 2014).

The artist Joseph Cornell took glass-fronted boxes and placed things such as birds, springs, ice cubes, and balls inside them, turning these everyday and otherwise benign objects into microcosms for something bigger than any of us can ever be. These boxes were referred to as “shadow boxes”, “memory boxes” and “poetic theaters,” and with each box the viewer is given an invitation to enter a new world. This world is not unknown to the individual viewer, but instead a collective and shared world in which memories exist. As the artist’s website states: “using things we can see, Cornell made boxes about things we cannot see: ideas, memories, fantasies, and dreams.” The boxes, both tragic and beautiful, present an artist trying as hard as they can to turn something intangible, something »

Oscars 2017: Does Aaron Taylor-Johnson Stand a Chance at Best Supporting Actor After Winning the Golden Globe?

10 January 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Courtesy: Paul Drinkwater/NBCUniversal via Getty Images)

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

While last night’s Golden Globes unequivocally belonged to La La Land, it started out with one of the biggest shocks of this awards season: Aaron Taylor-Johnson winning Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture for Nocturnal Animals. Does this surprise upset mean the British thespian is gearing up for winning Best Supporting Actor at the Oscars?

It’s important to first note that even Taylor-Johnson’s Golden Globes nomination wasn’t expected by most awards season prognosticators and, if someone from Tom Ford’s latest flick were to have a shot at the trophy, their money was placed on co-star Michael Shannon. And when it came to winning most had their money on Mahershala Ali (Moonlight), Jeff Bridges (Hell or High Water), Dev Patel (Lion), or even Simon Helberg (Florence Foster Jenkins) — not Taylor-Johnson. »
