When Words Fail: The Implications of Intentional Silence in Cinema

25 April 2017 2:01 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Less is sometimes so much more.

Before the advent of sound in the movies, silence was an obstacle to storytelling, it was a thing to be covered, interrupted, and worked around. Once sound came along, though, it changed the nature of the relationship between silence and storytelling, taking a once-ubiquitous element and transforming it into something far more meaningful. Silence now was not a necessity, it was a decision, a choice to relay information a certain way, unspoken, or at least unheard by those of us in the audience. In modern cinema, the most blatant example of silence as a storytelling booster can be found at the very end of Sofia Coppola’s Lost in Translation, when Bill Murray’s character whispers some mysterious goodbye to Scarlett Johansson’s after their platonic but emotional courtship.

Silence can convey things, thoughts, and emotions words never could, and as such a properly utilized bit of cinematic silence can lead »

Anatahan (Josef von Sternberg)

Josef von Sternberg called Anatahan his best film. Borne from more than a decade’s worth of frustration with the studio system, it was, as the last picture he completed, his stamp on his time as a director. Even then, when released in 1953, it was only released in a butchered format, and, as it often goes in such cases, was subsequently abandoned by popular consciousness. But a few times each year, cinephiles (at least »

Bill Murray Takes on Music Industry With Upcoming Release of Classical Album

21 April 2017 3:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

At 66, Bill Murray doesn’t have much more to accomplish in the world of comedy or film.  While he hasn’t won an Oscar in his career, he’s been nominated and did in fact win a Golden Globe for his role in Lost in Translation.   I don’t even think in Murray’s wildest dreams would he have taken his beginnings on SNL that far.   So what’s he doing now?  Something completely unexpected.  While we’re used to hearing Murray sing in a sarcastic Vegas lounge act kind of way, the comedian is releasing an actual music album.   According to Mashable: Murray’s new project

Sofia Coppola Describes Nicole Kidman As A ‘Virtuoso’ On The Set Of ‘The Beguiled’

21 April 2017 12:47 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With the exception of her contributions to “A Very Murray Christmas” on Netflix, we’ve only been treated to three Sofia Coppola movies since her Academy Award-nominated “Lost In Translation.” That’s just not enough Coppola in our lives. For comparison’s sake, Joe Swanberg released six movies in 2011 alone; this isn’t a knock on Swanberg so much as it is an acknowledgement that whatever Hollywood executives are doing that prevents Coppola from making six movies a year, they need to fix it yesterday.

Watch the Suspenseful Splendor of First Full 'The Beguiled' Trailer

20 April 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Sofia Coppola quickly emerged from the shadow of her filmmaker father Francis Ford Coppola by making her own brand of distinctly independent movies. From her short film Lick the Star to her feature debut The Virgin Suicides to her melancholy follow-up Lost in Translation to the splendid offbeat period piece Marie Antoinette to her touching character drama Somewhere to her sprightly crime flick The Bling Ring, Coppola has always brought her own personality and worldview to her work. She endeavored to make a new version of The Little Mermaid before creative differences arose in 2015. She cowrote and directed Bill Murray in A Very Murray Christmas and then moved on to a new version of The Beguiled, based on Thomas P. Cullinan's novel. A 1971 movie version starred Clint...

Kirsten Dunst, Rashida Jones And More Star In Sofia Coppola’s New Ad For Calvin Klein

20 April 2017 11:45 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Not since the days of Paul Thomas Anderson and Fiona Apple has there been a music video partnership quite as much fun as the one between Sofia Coppola and Phoenix. Phoenix frontman Thomas Mars has been providing music for now-wife Sofia Coppola‘s movies for decades now, with the band appearing on the soundtracks for “Lost In Translation,” “Marie Antoinette,” and “The Bling Ring,” and Coppola had previously returned the favor by shooting their 2013 music video for the song “Chloroform.” And now Coppola has edged just a little closer to balancing out the scales, bringing her husband’s band along — as well as some familiar faces from her movies — in this new ad for the Calvin Klein spring collection.

Nicole Kidman and Sofia Coppola Team Up for Buzzy ‘Beguiled’

20 April 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Fresh off her acclaimed performance as a wife enduring abusive in “Big Little Lies,” Nicole Kidman is certain to turn heads once more this year in fellow Oscar winner Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled.” She stars in this 2017 Cannes Film Festival entry as Martha Farnsworth, the rural Virginian schoolmaster at an all-girls school during the Civil War. Closed off from the outside world, the sheltered system she has in place with students like Alicia (Elle Fanning) and colleagues like Edwina (Kirsten Dunst) is destabilized with the arrival of a wounded Union soldier named John McBurney (Colin Farrell). When tensions rise and young lust comes into the mix, this southern school house becomes John’s gothic prison. Read: “Haynes, Coppola, Kidman in Cannes Film Festival 2017 Lineup” The latest from “The Bling Ring” and “Lost in Translation” scribe Coppola, a remake of the 1971 Clint Eastwood film of the same name, looks to feature an ensemble of fine-tuned, »

Trailer Watch: Nicole Kidman Gets an Unwanted Guest in Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled”

20 April 2017 9:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

The Beguiled

“You’re a most unwelcome visitor,” Martha Farnsworth (Nicole Kidman) informs the wounded John McBurney (Colin Farrell) in a new trailer for Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled.” “And we do not propose to entertain you.” Without missing a beat, John fires back: “You’ll find I’m easily amused.”

Judging from the footage, what amuses the Union soldier is manipulating Martha and the other Southern women who have taken him in to their boarding school to convalesce. Without much effort he seduces Edwina Dabney (Kirsten Dunst), a teacher, and Alicia (Elle Fanning), one of the older students. He also manages to emotionally and physically coerce Alicia into doing his bidding.

The women strike back, though. They appear to poison John — and those aren’t the only consequences he faces. Covered in blood, Martha orders her girls to “Go to the smokehouse. Get the saw. Now.”

Written and directed by Coppola, “The Beguiled” sees Coppola reuniting with her “Virgin Suicides” and “Marie Antoinette” muse Dunst and “Somewhere” star Fanning. The film is based on Thomas P. Cullinan’s novel “A Painted Devil.” Cullinan’s book was previously adapted into a movie in 1971, also called “The Beguiled.”

Coppola’s other credits include the “The Bling Ring,” and “Lost in Translation,” and the Netflix variety special “A Very Murray Christmas.” Coppola won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay in 2004 for “Lost in Translation.”

You can still catch all three “Beguiled” leading ladies in theaters. Fanning stars in “20th Century Women,” Dunst has a supporting role in “Hidden Figures,” and Kidman appears in “Lion,” for which she earned an Oscar nod this year.

The Beguiled” will make its world premiere in the main competition at the Cannes Film Festival, which runs May 17–28. Kidman will appear in three other projects screening at the fest: John Cameron Mitchell’s “How to Talk to Girls at Parties,” co-starring Fanning, horror-drama “The Killing of a Sacred Deer,” and season two of Jane Campion’s “Top of the Lake,” entitled “China Girl.”

You can catch “The Beguiled” in select theaters June 23, with a wider release scheduled for June 30.

Check out the amazing new trailer for Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled

Author: Jon Lyus

A new film from Sofia Coppola will always attract interest. Her dizzying Tokyo-bound tale of isolation, Lost in Translation, was a high water mark for the director, with the impenetrable Somewhere and The Bling Ring following a theme of dysfunction in the Hollywood bubble. Her new film, The Beguiled, is why we’re here today. A new trailer for the film has arrived, bringing with it a deeper look at the mystery within.

The film has been selected to play in the Official Selection at Cannes next month, taking Coppola back to the festival she debuted 2006’s Marie Antoinette and 2013’s The Bling Ring. The film is her adaptation of Thomas Cullinan 1966’s novel A Painted Devil, the second after Don Siegel’s 1971 film which shares the name The Beguiled.

Sam Elliott Plays A Fading Western Star In The First ‘The Hero’ Trailer

18 April 2017 10:38 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Nothing tugs at my heartstrings quite like movies where aging stars plays lightly fictionalized versions of themselves. From “Sunset Boulevard” to “Lost In Translation,” these films simultaneously give their actors an opportunity to deliver another powerhouse performance while reminding audiences of the ups and downs any lengthy career will encounter. And Brett Haley‘s “The Hero,” a film starring and not-so-subtly about the career of veteran character actor Sam Elliott, seems destined to be another welcome entry to this canon.

Donnie Darko (Richard Kelly)

Last year marked the 15-year anniversary of Richard Kelly’s debut cult curio, Donnie Darko. While the film’s cult-status has elevated it into its own separate canon alongside other 21st-century indie-cult hits, Kelly’s two other films — the positively delirious and daring Southland Tales and the labyrinthine sci-fi period piece The Box — prove that he is a director deserving of much greater consideration.

Sofia Coppola to Be Honored at Provincetown Film Festival

Sofia Coppola: Photo by Andrew Durham

Sofia Coppola is having a helluva week. The writer-director’s next film, “The Beguiled,” was just announced as part of Canne’s 2017 lineup, and now comes word that the Oscar winner will be honored at this year’s Provincetown Film Festival (Piff), where she’ll be named Filmmaker on the Edge.

“Now in its 19th year, the festival has a long history of honoring filmmakers whose extraordinary achievement, innovation, and vision pushes the boundaries of their craft,” an press release from Piff details. Producer Christine Vachon (“Carol,” “Boys Don’t Cry”) is among those who have previously received the Filmmaker on the Edge honor.

Set during the Civil War, “The Beguiled” centers on a Confederate girls’ boarding school that is thrown into chaos after taking in an injured Union soldier to convalesce. The star-studded cast includes Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning, and Colin Farrell.

Coppola won an Oscar in 2004 for penning the script for the Tokyo-set love story “Lost in Translation,” which she also helmed. “The Bling Ring,” “Somewhere,” and “The Virgin Suicides” are among her other credits.

Piff also announced that Chloë Sevigny (“Love & Friendship,” “Big Love”) will be recognized with the Excellence in Acting Award. Previous honorees include Tilda Swinton, Patricia Clarkson, and Cynthia Nixon.

“During one of the most galvanizing moments for women in recent political history, we are thrilled to honor two women who have already altered the lens through which we see women in Hollywood,” commented Christine Walker, Executive Director of Piff and CEO of the Provincetown Film Society. “Sofia Coppola is the deft auteur whose imprimatur is unapologetically feminine. Chlöe Sevigny is the fearless iconoclast whose work is remarkable simply because she inhabits it.”

Mr. Roosevelt” will open the fest. Written, directed, and starring Noël Wells (“Master of None”), the comedy centers on a struggling comedian (Wells) “who returns to her college town of Austin, Texas, after a loved one falls ill and must come to terms with her past while staying with her ex-boyfriend and his new girlfriend,” Piff writes. “Mr. Roosevelt” made its world premiere at SXSW, where it won the Louis Black “Lone Star” Award, which recognizes a movie with Texas content.

“We are thrilled to present Noël Wells’ directorial debut for our Opening Night, as it embodies the spirit of our festival, showcasing a smart woman both in front and behind the camera, and is filled with fresh writing and a striking sense of humor,” said Lisa Viola, Piff’s Artistic Director.

Piff runs from June 14-18.

11 April 2017 9:04 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – London-based HanWay Films has taken international sales on Italian director Matteo Garrone’s next film “Dogman,” a revenge drama set on Rome’s crime-ridden outskirts, which Garrone’s own Archimede Films is producing with financing from Italy’s Rai Cinema and France’s Le Pacte.

“Dogman” will extend Garrone’s relationship with HanWay, the sales company founded by British producer Jeremy Thomas, following their collaboration on “Tale of Tales” and on the director’s planned “Pinocchio” project, production of which has now been moved to February 2018, according to a HanWay rep.

HanWay will be selling “Dogman” globally except for Italy and France, where it will be released by Rai Cinema and Le Pacte, respectively, Garrone said.

“Dogman,” which Garrone is planning to shoot this year, is inspired by a homicide committed by a coked-out dog groomer during the late 1980s in the gangland outside Rome. The case, involving hours »
