Tribeca 2014: ‘Gabriel’ captures the unpredictability of mental illness

17 April 2014 7:29 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Gabriel

Written and directed by Lou Howe

USA, 2014

The stereotype of mental illness on film is not too dissimilar from the stereotype of mental retardation put forward by the film Tropic Thunder: Successful characters have to be “disturbed,” but they can’t be completely out of control, or else audiences won’t relate to them. Thus, Lou Howe’s debut feature Gabriel, opening this week at the Tribeca Film Festival, draws notice simply because it challenges the rule. The titular character is ill to a degree that the audience cannot completely understand, and he gives an otherwise standard film the depth and edge that it needs.

This will not be clear at the start of the picture. We first meet Gabriel (Rory Culkin) on a lonely search for his long-lost girlfriend, wherein he inadvertently teaches a small child to smoke cigarettes and steals a pair of the girlfriend’s »

Steven Spielberg to develop new film from 'Lincoln' screenwriter

17 April 2014 6:22 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For me, there are two immediately interesting takeaways from the news that Steve Spielberg will be developing the religious drama "The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara." The first is that it would mark his third collaboration with Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and screenwriter Tony Kushner after "Munich" and "Lincoln." The other is that the project would be a co-production between DreamWorks and The Weinstein Company. DreamWorks, quietly celebrating a 20th anniversary this year after being concocted by entertainment magnates Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen, saw some interesting Oscar battlefield time opposite Harvey Weinstein back in the Miramax days. Round one went to Weinstein, as "Shakespeare in Love" shocked "Saving Private Ryan" to win the Academy Award for Best Picture of 1998. But Spielberg and company won rounds two and three with "American Beauty" topping "The Cider House Rules" in 1999 and "Gladiator" blowing past "Chocolat" in 2000. (DreamWorks also co-produced the 2001 Best Picture winner, »

Paul Bettany Discusses Playing the Vision in Age of Ultron

14 April 2014 3:31 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 

J.A.R.V.I.S. is getting a reboot in the next Avengers film, being upgraded from computer servant to android superhero. Paul Bettany talked to Jimmy Kimmel about his new role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the Vision.

 

 

Paul Bettany is a talented actor, having been in Oscar-nominated films like A Beautiful Mind and Master and Commander: the Far Side of the World. He’s never been an A-Lister, but his role in the upcoming sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron could help raise his profile.  In previous Marvel films, he’s provided the voice of J.A.R.V.I.S., Tony Stark’s helpful computer AI. In the sequel, he’ll be playing the Vision, an android super hero who has been a member of the Avengers in the comics since 1968. The character was a revised version of earlier hero created by the legendary Jack Kirby in 1940, also called the Vision. »

Eddie Redmayne's Stephen Hawking biopic chases Oscar with a November release

10 April 2014 1:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Back in June last year, we mentioned the theoretical likelihood of awards attention for "Theory of Everything," James Marsh-directed biopic starring Eddie Redmayne as motor neuron disease-affllicted physicist Stephen Hawking. Now, with the news that Focus Features will be releasing the British production, and has selected a November 7 release date, that looks even likelier. Focus, of course, had a major Oscar hit last year with "Dallas Buyers Club," the scrappy, heartfelt indie that quietly chugged its way to six Oscar nominations and three wins, including Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor. It was widely thought that the film represented a kind of last hurrah for the studio's prestige era, following the displacement of James Schamus as CEO and the announcement of a more mainstream-driven ethos. Clearly, however, the success of "Dallas" kept them gold-hungry, since "Theory of Everything" is very much the sort of high-end project Focus might have steered under Schamus's command. »

New Photos From Wally Pfister’s Transcendence – Stars Johnny Depp

4 April 2014 11:17 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Set in a not-too-distant future, Transcendence explores the very real possibility that humans—in our attempts to create a better, more efficient, more self-sustaining world through technology—can go too far. For emotions are not always positive: doesn’t a machine that has the capacity for kindness also have the capacity for menace?

Wally Pfister, a renowned cinematographer making his feature directorial debut on the film, states, “I was struck by the power and the weight of the ideas in this story, which I think are very much on people’s minds right now.”

Transcendence” proposes that we can achieve what’s been called singularity. Pfister comments, “As we define it for the film, singularity is basically the uploading of the human brain into a super computer: the duplication of every synapse, every neuron…every bit of activity in the brain goes into a machine, which then becomes sentient.”

Jennifer Connelly: 5 Awesome Performances And 5 That Sucked

4 April 2014 6:49 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

If you’ve been anywhere near the internet these past few days, you’ll have heard something about Noah, the new film from Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky. The film has opened in America to generally positive reviews, and generated a fair amount of controversy surrounding its relationship to the original Biblical narrative of the Flood. Suffice to say, opinions vary throughout the Christian church, and the dialogue thus created has done nothing but improve the film’s chances of commercial success.

As a Christian, I do take an interest in the way that films and other media portray Biblical stories and characters – but I’m not going to talk about that today. Because in amongst that potential fire-storm of abuse, we have Jennifer Connelly reuniting with the two men who were there at the peak of her career – Aronofsky, who directed her in Requiem for a Dream, »

Hollywood A-Listers Ron Howard and Brian Grazer Return to Web to Chase Young and Tech-Savvy with New Digital Studio

3 April 2014 9:27 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Longtime Imagine Entertainment spearheads Ron Howard and Brian Grazer are partnering with Maryland-based nonfiction media company Discovery Communications to launch a new digital studio called New Form. Howard and Grazer have long been engaged with new media and tech--they founded website Pop.com before the world was ready for it. The studio will focus on content outside the traditional media models of film and television, Variety reports in an interview with producer Grazer, writer/director/producer Howard and Discovery CEO David Zaslav. This is yet another example of Hollywood A-listers facing dwindling returns in their old movie space--and these guys are at the top of the Hollywood pyramid. They made "Rush" as an indie-funded European film for Working Title.  Zaslav told Variety that Howard, who cut his teeth in television, and Grazer, who produced Howard's Oscar winner "A Beautiful Mind," are "two of the best scripted storytellers of our generation. »

Russell Crowe Facts: 19 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the 'Noah' Star

28 March 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Russell Crowe has been hard to miss since breaking out as the tough-yet-likable Bud White in 1997's "L.A. Confidential."

In the years following, the international star has racked up countless achievements, most notably his Oscar-winning performance in Ridley Scott's "Gladiator" (2000), and has cemented his status as one of Hollywood's top leading men. The actor steps back into antiquity again this Friday, as he teams up with Darren Aronofsky to portray Biblical patriarch Noah in, well, "Noah," a film already shrouded in controversy.

From his days as "Russ le Roq," to his jaw-dropping smoking habits, here are 19 things you probably don't know about Russell Crowe.

1. Contrary to popular belief, the actor was born in New Zealand, not Australia. Crowe did move to Australia as a young boy, however.

2. Both of his parents were movie-set caterers, and his father also managed a hotel. Crowe's maternal grandfather was a cinematographer, who »

'Noah' Is Visionary, Should Weather Storm of Controversy

27 March 2014 9:35 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

It's all aboard on At the Movies this week as Peter Travers highlights Darren Aronofsky's controversial new film Noah, which offers a unique interpretation of the classic biblical tale of the flood and Noah's ark.

As Travers notes, the director of Black Swan and Requiem for a Dream is not doing an exact recreation of the story from the Book of Genesis, which tells us essentially that God wanted to destroy the Earth to punish the wicked and that he instructed to Noah to build an ark and take »

What's at Stake in the 'Noah' Controversy

25 March 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There's a lot at stake with the release this Friday of "Noah," and not just for the filmmakers or the studio that sunk a reported $160 million into the film.

In a year when Hollywood is releasing several Bible-inspired movies, "Noah" has become the test case for a number of issues -- whether Hollywood can earn the trust of fundamentalist Christians (and whether it's worth risking money and controversy even to try), whether it's possible to make big-budget spectacles that please both religious viewers and secular action-film fans, and whether directors can make Bible-themed movies that adhere to doctrine without compromising artistically or making dull propaganda.

It would be easy to see this saga as a story of just two players. On the one side is Hollywood, represented here by "Noah" studio Paramount, which would like to attract Christian viewers, and which has practically bent over backward to do so, testing »
