On Friday, Amazon released all 10 episodes of Transparent season 3, and I have some general thoughts on the year, followed by a mini-reviews of each episode, coming up just as soon as I say I'm the strip club's It person... As I alluded to in the introduction to my interview with the always-candid Gaby Hoffmann, I found that season 3 worked more in individual moments — or at times for entire episodes — than it did as a season of TV. The character arcs frequently felt like they were jumping from Point A to Point D without worrying about B or C, even though it wasn't structurally all that different from the previous seasons. Great performances, great scenes, and slightly more self-awareness from the Pfeffermans — Maura and Shelly, at least, and maybe Ali — but something was a bit lacking compared to the show's previous heights. Let's go episode-by-episode, and I'll do my best not »

In this week’s Fear the Walking Dead, Madison’s desperation to reunite with Nick not only cut Alicia to the quick, it also ushered Strand to death’s door and left in grave danger more than just the hotel’s Yelp rating. What did the anxious mom do that she most definitely shouldn’t have? Read on…

They're in a New York state of mind! Diane Kruger and Garrett Hedlund enjoyed a night out in the Big Apple on Monday. The two actors were spotted out and about in Soho, enjoying wine and appetizers at The Butcher's Daughter before heading to one of the city's oldest bars, Ear Inn, for a nightcap. Kruger looked happy and relaxed - wearing a strapless patterned grey top with white polka dot black leggings. The 40-year-old actress wore her hair back in a half bun - and accessorized the summertime look with black strappy sandals. He was equally casual - in dark jeans, »

Film follows Grammy-nominated British rock band Wolf Alice on tour.
The film will be presented within the festival’s Sonic strand on Oct 9 at the BFI Southbank and follows Grammy-nominated British rock band Wolf Alice, from North London, on tour.
Winterbottom joined the band on the road earlier this year, capturing 16 different gigs and daily life backstage. The film records the tour from the point of view of a new member of their crew and stars rising British actors Leah Harvey and James McArdle.
“The starting point for the film was a long time ago in a bar in New York when we met up with a band called Ash. They told us all about their life on the road - an endless string of festivals and gigs. It sounded romantic and terrible at the same time. I was curious »

For someone who usually knocks out a film a year, Michael Winterbottom’s been rather quiet of late. He’s actually continued on his usual rate of productivity, but the last few films from the brilliant but somewhat patchy British filmmaker have made rather small drops in the ocean — few saw his Amanda Knox-inspired “The Face […]

Happy Labor Day, all! To mark this occassion I will be working very hard today because I have much to accomplish before I leave for Tiff, the best film festival on the planet, according to me, for its ease, it's breadth, and the quality of its movies. Any big plans today, whether or not its Labor Day where you live?
On this day in history as it relates to the movies...
1916 One hundred years ago today the other über famous and influential D.W. Griffith epic, the one its Ok to care about, opened. Intolerance, sometimes subtitled "love's struggle throughout the ages," was three and a half hours long and prominently advertised its then insane budget of $2,000,000. Wouldn't it be funny if today's movies were all "we cost $300,000,000 to make" (and all you get is a glossy commercial for merchandise / sequels)" on the posters? The epic stretched from Ancient Babylon through »

In this week’s Fear the Walking Dead, Nick learned that there were still people in the world that were crazier than him; Madison, Strand, Alicia and Ofelia checked into Mexican Horror Story: Hotel; and we all got to tag along on a trip to a post-apocalyptic Costco. Oh, and by the end of “Los Muertos,” only one of those characters wasn’t in imminent danger. Who got off easy (for now)? Read on!

In the hilarious teaser for Ricky Gervais' upcoming Office spin-off David Brent: Life on the Road, Gervais (as Brent) romanticizes his mundane hometown of Slough. He performs a Bowie-esque ballad onstage, with backing band Foregone Conclusion rolling their eyes in annoyance.

Stephen Colbert loves to ask the tough questions on The Late Show and last night's episode with Will Smith was no exception. On the road promoting Suicide Squad, Smith stopped by to lay down on a blanket and stare up at the sky with Colbert while contemplating life's biggest questions like, "Do you ever wonder if we're all inside of some dog's dream?" Colbert's answer? "No, because if we were, then there wouldn't be vacuum cleaners." The questions and answers get increasingly ridiculous. ("Are you an introvert or an extrovert?" "Well, that depends on how cold the water is.") Watch the whole thing below: »

★★★★☆ Joining other films that revel in a bygone era (Inside Llewyn Davis, On the Road et al.), Born to Be Blue is a captivating portrait of the shadowy remains of jazz musician Chet Baker. Anchored by a wistful, wincing Ethan Hawke, this film is well worth the watch. What comes through in every frame is not only loving direction from Robert Budreau but an equally loving script. There's atmosphere, music and a sharp story-within-a-story nesting doll device which helps viewers better grasp Baker. Born to Be Blue shines.

Coppola unveiled details of the multi-year project at a news conference Saturday, following his month-long collaboration with 75 UCLA students and faculty on “Distant Vision,” the story of three generations of an Italian-American family whose history spans the development of television.
The collaboration culminated Friday with a 27-minute live broadcast of the “Distant Vision” script from the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television’s Freud Playhouse to a limited audience. The tasks for the students and faculty included operating over 40 cameras, acting and working on sound, set design and construction, costume, props, editing, stage management and producing.
UCLA co-sponsored the workshop with American Zoetrope, Coppola’s production company. Coppola was the writer and director.
Coppola’s “live cinema” concept is based on using »

Screen canvasses industry opinion on Langan’s tenure and the prospects for one of the UK’s cornerstone funders.
Attention is also now beginning to turn to who is likely to be her successor and what plans the BBC has for its film arm in the long run.
“Christine leaves BBC Films in good shape,” commented producer Stewart Mackinnon of Headline Pictures, who worked with the broadcaster’s film arm on titles including Quartet and The Invisible Woman, among other projects.
“The thing I remember particularly about Christine is her giving very good notes about the final editing of the film (Pride). She was very clear and very precise, and with a light hand on the tiller,” Livingstone said.

Before becoming a household name thanks to “Twilight”—and a formidable actor in her own right with films like “On the Road” and “Clouds of Sils Maria”—Kristen Stewart was a promising young child actor starring in movies like “Catch That Kid” and “Panic Room.” And that’s not to mention the occasional commercial! In this 1999 Porsche commercial, Stewart play a daughter who, after missing the school bus, goads her dad into driving her over in his sleek and stylish 911 Carrera. Clearly enjoying herself along the way, she learns to “miss the bus” a second time to do it all over again the next day. Watch the young Stewart at work below! You could be next!
