Film Review: Approach of ‘Money Monster’ is Pure Fraud

12 May 2016 6:50 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – In our society there is one eternal truth…the rich will Always win, that’s one of the reasons that they are rich. So when “Money Monster” attempts to take them down a peg with a ridiculous fantasy story, it’s as fraudulent as what they think they’re bringing down. An oligarch watches this, and laughs at us.

Rating: 1.0/5.0

What was surprising, and distressing, was that George Clooney was involved in this project. He has made reliably stick-it-to-the-man films for years (“Confessions of a Dangerous Mind,” “Good Night, and Good Luck,” “The American”), but in this one he doesn’t have a character, or at least a character that has a placeholder in reality. Everything else is just window dressing – the direction from Jodie Foster, the horrid screenplay by three writers. and a throwaway role for Julia Roberts that someone like Téa Leoni could have done, and that »

Anomalisa review – uncanny stop-motion

Charlie Kaufman’s ingeniously animated tale of a man in midlife crisis doesn’t quite hold together

When it comes to navel-gazing, writer and sometime director Charlie Kaufman is in a world of his own. Like Michel Gondry, with whom he collaborated on 2004’s brilliant Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Kaufman’s work is best when mediated by the input of others; from director Spike Jonze, with whom he worked on Being John Malkovich (1999) and Adaptation (2002), to George Clooney, who directed 2002’s underrated Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. In 2008, Kaufman went it alone with Synecdoche, New York, serving as both writer and director on a project so personal it became utterly impenetrable.

There’s an uncomfortable intimacy to the drama, an element that makes Michael’s predatory nature all the more unsettling

Paramount Pictures has acquired U.S. distribution to George Clooney’s black comedy “Suburbicon,” starring Matt Damon, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin and Julianne Moore.

The film is expected to begin shooting this October in Los Angeles.

George Clooney’s ‘Suburbicon’ Nears Deals with Paramount

12 February 2016 8:11 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

George Clooney is one of the hottest properties at the Berlin Film Festival. After starring in opening night film “Hail, Caesar!,” Clooney is seeing his next directorial effort “Suburbicon” fast gathering traction.

Paramount Pictures is nearing  a deal with CAA for the film’s U.S. distribution rights, Variety has confirmed.

Meanwhile, at Berlin, sales agency Bloom is expected to be closing deals in major international territories over the next few days.

At the beginning of the month, Black Bear Pictures confirmed that it will finance the comedic drama, which was written by “Hail, Caesar!” directing pair Joel and Ethan Coen early in their careers but never made it to the screen. As Clooney told Variety recently, he’d sifted through dozens of scripts, looking for his next project, when he was reminded of the old screenplay and asked the Coen brothers for permission to finally adapt the story. When a home invasion turns deadly, »

Clooney and The Coen Brothers To Re-Team For 'Suburbicon'

2 February 2016 7:19 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

George Clooney and The Coen Brothers sure do love working together. Not only has the actor appeared in four films directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, but now his next directing gig is going to be written by them. It was announced some time ago that the trio was working on a film called Suburbicon. Well, the production is picking up steam and has now added A-list talent like Matt Damon and Julianne Moore to its cast. That's not all, but we now know some of the plot details for the upcoming dark dramedy.

According to The Wrap: "When a home invasion turns deadly, a picture-perfect family turns to blackmail, revenge and betrayal." Set in the fictitious town of Suburbicon, the film will take a darkly humorous look at what seemingly ordinary people are capable of when the context is just right. 

This will be Clooney's first directing gig since the underwhelming The Monuments Men, »

'Money Monster' Trailer Has George Clooney in Crisis Mode

Twelve years after they last worked together in Ocean's Twelve, Julia Roberts and George Clooney reunite once again in the upcoming Money Monster. Sony Pictures has released the first trailer for this harrowing thriller, which shows the lengths one distraught man in financial ruins will go to, after one particular stock plummets. Money Monster is set for release on May 13, going up against The Darkness, Free State of Jones, Snowden and Kidnap.

In the taut and tense thriller Money Monster, Lee Gates (George Clooney) is a bombastic TV personality whose popular financial network show has made him the money wiz of Wall Street. But after he hawks a high tech stock that mysteriously crashes, an irate investor (Jack O'Connell) takes Gates, his crew, and his ace producer Patty Fenn (Julia Roberts) hostage live on air. Unfolding in real time, Gates and Fenn must find a way to keep themselves alive »

Charlie Kaufman Doesn't Like Clooney's "Mind"

12 January 2016 8:34 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Acclaimed scribe Charlie Kaufman has a back catalogue of films that anyone would be jealous of having - from his writing gigs like "Being John Malkovich" and "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" to his directorial efforts like "Synecdoche, New York" and "Anomalisa".

Yet one film on his resume that he's not keen on talking about is the George Clooney-directed "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" which Kaufman wrote. Financially a bit of a dud, the Sam Rockwell-led film was nevertheless well-received by critics. However, Kaufman was not a fan of the result.

Speaking with Marc Maron, Kaufman says: "I didn't like it. That was a movie in which I was not consulted. I mean, George Clooney changed the script, he didn't talk to me during production. We kind of didn't get along. I was invited to see the movie when he was pretty much done and I wrote »

Charlie Kaufman Wasn’t Pleased With ‘Confessions of a Dangerous Mind’

12 January 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

It’s not an accident Confessions of a Dangerous Mind wasn’t shown as last week’s Charlie Kaufman retrospective. Although the Anomalisa writer and co-director received sole credit on George Clooney‘s directorial debut, he had very little involvement in the film, and he wasn’t happy with the end result. After the jump, read Charlie Kaufman’s thoughts on Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. I remember […]

Listen to Charlie Kaufman’s One-Hour, Career-Spanning Talk with Marc Maron

11 January 2016 12:08 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

For much of his career, Charlie Kaufman has been an enigma of introspective storytelling, crafting characters and situations that feel all too real to his audience. With his latest feature, the highly recommended stop-motion animation Anomalisa, it’s afforded an unexpected opportunity to gain unprecedented insight into his career. After many other talks, perhaps the most extensive and fruitful has arrived with Marc Maron.

In the one-hour chat, Kaufman discusses not getting his first gig in entertainment until the age of 32 and failing to get writing work on Simpsons, Seinfeld, Mr. Show. He then jumps into his early collaborations with Spike Jonze and Michel Gondry with Being John Malkovich, Human Nature, Adaptation, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, as well as not taking to Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.

Interview: Charlie Kaufman is Animated About ‘Anomalisa’

7 January 2016 7:02 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Charlie Kaufman is one of the most inventive and creative minds in film – he has written “Being John Malkovich,” “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” and “Adaptation.” He recently teamed up with an animation director, Duke Johnson, to produce an unusual and contemporary stop-motion film, “Anomalisa.”

The use of stop motion in “Anamolisa” is much more poignant and philosophical than any other of these types of animated films before it. There is a customer service expert named Michael Stone (voice of David Thewlis), who experiences his life as mind-numbing sameness. Every man and woman sounds exactly the same (voice of Tom Noonan), until he meets a nebbish convention attendee named Lisa (Jennifer Jason Leigh). The film is a meditation on how life, at times, can be a mystery that needs to somehow be unlocked. The world can spin the same on a daily basis, yet there are those nuggets of consequence that exist, »
