James Franco’s Movie Column: Why Fame Is So Seductive In ‘Author: The Jt Leroy Story’

9 September 2016 7:45 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

James + Semaj is a column where James Franco talks to his reverse self, Semaj, about new films. Rather than a conventional review, it is place where James and Semaj can muse about ideas that the films provoke. James loves going to the movies and talking about them. But a one-sided take on a movie, in print, might be misconstrued as a review. As someone in the industry it could be detrimental to James’s career if he were to review his peers, because unlike the book industry—where writers review other writer’s books—the film industry is highly collaborative, and a bad review of a peer could create problems. So, assume that James (and Semaj) love all these films. What they’re interested in talking about is all the ways the films inspire them, and make them think. James is me, and Semaj is the other side of me. »

This past Wednesday, the Toronto Film Festival hosted its annual pre-opening-night fundraising event the Tiff Soirée, where proceeds go to help the festival as well under-served Toronto youth. The guest of honor for the evening was actor Michael Fassbender who participated in a career-long retrospective with Tiff artistic director Cameron Bailey. During the event, Fassbender provided some interesting details about his creative process as well as his thoughts about his performances, including the one’s he didn’t like so much, such as Magneto in “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” According to Vulture, he was “cringing and rubbing his face with embarrassment” when the clip was playing for the audience and eventually admitted that he’s not a fan of his acting. “I just think it’s me shouting. It’s just like…some dude shouting.”

15 Things We Learned From the 'De Palma' Documentary

9 June 2016 8:59 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The setup to De Palma, Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow's engrossing new documentary about the life and career of controversial filmmaker Brian De Palma (opening in theaters on June 10th), couldn't be simpler: The 75-year-old director dissects most of his films and shares analyses and behind-the-scenes anecdotes in between clips. Forget talking-head testimonials from collaborators, flashy visuals or dramatic reenactments. You just get the man himself, looking back and holding court in all his verbose, insightful glory.

And that is more than enough. Known primarily for his obsession with voyeurism, »
