Michael Pitt talks 'Boardwalk Empire' season 2 finale -- Exclusive

11 December 2011 10:00 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

[Warning: The following interview with Boardwalk Empire costar Michael Pitt contains spoilers about Sunday night's second season finale.].

The brooding, ambitious Jimmy Darmody is no more. But the actor who played him, Michael Pitt, says he respected producers’ stunning decision to kill off his pivotal Boardwalk Empire character in the show’s second season finale Sunday night.

“I like it,” wrote the often press-shy Pitt, responding to questions from EW via e-mail about the finale. “As much as I will miss working with everyone on this incredible project, I thought that it would be very shocking, and I’m always drawn to that.”

Showrunner Terence Winter decided near the end of shooting the season that Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi »

Gus van Sant: the last king of the underground

21 October 2011 12:41 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

His films are so varied as to seem wilfully diverse, but Van Sant is a director with rare intuitive skills (who is also heat-resistant)

Gus van Sant has never been much for hoeing the same old row. His last movie, Milk, won two Oscars and – thanks to a providential release date – became part of the national debate over California's Proposition 8 to bar gay marriage in the state. Milk was an epic history lesson in the form of a biopic – one critic astutely called it "a calmed-down Oliver Stone movie" – and many thought it offered sobering lessons to a gay political establishment that had grown fat and complacent in the 30 years since Harvey Milk was murdered. But three years later Van Sant is back, not with a whizz-bang, zillion-dollar project that most directors would claim as their God-given right after a prestige hit such as Milk, but with a low-budget, intimate, »

Restless – review

21 October 2011 12:35 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The sheer fatuity of Restless's representation of bereavement and death is breathtaking

Gus Van Sant, so revered for art-film works such as Elephant, Last Days and Gerry, makes one of his periodic returns to the mainstream with this horrifically irritating weepie. Enoch is a high-cheekboned blond boy whose parents died in a car wreck that put him in a three-month coma. In a numbed, voyeuristic mood of emotional estrangement, he now gatecrashes other people's funerals. Here he runs into Annabel, similarly tricked out in emo-goth-Wildean black. She is sort of entitled to be there, having shared a hospital ward with the deceased, and she is herself a terminal case. So this odd couple begin their super-cool, offbeat, Gen-Xish love affair. Enoch is played by Henry Hopper with exasperating sub-James-Franco mannerisms and a wooden, charmless style. As Annabel, Mia Wasikowska does a little better, but her character is afflicted with »

Spike Jonze Directs a Heart-Felt Short

19 October 2011 1:54 PM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Here's a rather, um, life-affirming little short by "Where the Wild Things Are" helmer Spike Jonze, in which the skeleton of Macbeth tears himself off the cover of his own book to jump the bones (literally) of Mina Harker on the cover of "Dracula." Complications ensue, Herman Melville is involved.

We guarantee you've never quite seen a short film like this, which is animated entirely using 2-D handcrafted felt puppets designed by Olympia Le-Tan, who also wrote the script. Olympia has specialized in making book cover reproductions using this style.

Shot at France's Shakespeare and Company bookstore, the initial live-action segment features her father, Pierre Le-Tan whom movie fans may recognize as the illustrator for the covers of several Whit Stillman DVDs on the Criterion Collection, such as "Metropolitan" and "Last Days of Disco."

Jonze himself voices Macbeth, and French singer Soko lends her voice to Harker as well as »

Grant Morrison To Write Rogue Trooper Movie

3 October 2011 5:25 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Bleeding Cool by way of the Daily Record reports that Grant Morrison will soon be working on adapting the 200Ad comic book character, Rogue Trooper for Sam Worthington's Full Clip Production, who were also attached to comic adaptions of Damaged and Last Days of American Crime. The site also found this quote from Morrison, in which he responds to the notion that Mark Millar is now Scotland's #1 comic book writer. Here's what Grant says: “Mark does his thing. He creates comic books and tries to sell them as properties, but I write movies. They are different things. I live over in La and write for the studios. Mark was my protégé for 10 years and has gone on and done stuff. We both do our own thing.” Hmm. Interesting. Rogue Trooper is a science fiction strip in the British comic 2000 Ad, created by Gerry Finley-Day and Dave Gibbons. »

Venice Film Festival Round-up

23 September 2011 1:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Simone Eder and Carlotta Corvi report from the Venice International Film Festival.

The 68th was certainly a memorable year with the overall quality of the films being very high and the films for the lineup well selected. Some films surprised while some films disappointed, and most of them will be talked about in the coming weeks and months.

Day 1

The longest running Film festival in the World kicked off its 68th Edition Festival at the Lido in Venice with the world premiere of George Clooney’s political drama The Ides of March starring Ryan Gosling, Clooney himself, Paul Giamatti and Phillip Seymour Hoffman,and was the first film shown in competition for the Golden Lion. Promoted as intense tale of sex, ambition, loyalty, betrayal and revenge the film was however less cynical and shocking than promised and contained a couple of weak plot points.

1991. Grunge and Poses

22 September 2011 1:29 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

"Twenty years ago," blogs the New Yorker's Sasha Frere-Jones today, "I spent an afternoon shuffling around Rocks In Your Head, a record store that once did business on Prince Street. (It closed in 2006.) My friend Jim worked the counter, and we were listening to a new album, over and over: Nirvana's Nevermind. At some point, Vernon Reid — the guitar player and founder of Living Colour — came in. He listened to four songs, nodded approvingly, and approached the counter. 'Metallica plus R.E.M. That's really smart.' He bought a copy and left."

Michael Stipe, Peter Buck and Mike Mills, who formally announced the amicable dissolution of R.E.M. yesterday, will surely be hoping their band will be remembered as more than half the formula for another band ten years their junior (and, for what it's worth, I personally believe they will be), but if this anecdote is the first »

Gus Van Sant: Restless

21 September 2011 4:20 AM, PDT | TribecaFilm.com | See recent Tribeca Film news »

Mia Wasikowska and Henry Hopper / Courtesy Sony Pictures Classics Two sub-genres of relationship films - the doomed romance (Love Story) and the hipster romantic comedy (500 Days Of Summer) - are satisfyingly blended together in Restless, the latest film by Gus Van Sant. And truly, is there any director more suited to doing this sort of genre mutation than Van Sant? He's been fascinated by young people and death throughout his career, from the uncertain youths of My Own Private Idaho to the tragic deaths of teens in Elephant to the young musician's suicide in Last Days. Of course, one also can't neglect to mention 2007's Paranoid Park, which saw Van Sant telling the story not of a teen who suffers an untimely death, but rather, a teen who inflicts one. What's interesting is that, morbid subject matter aside, Restless is actually a fairly light film by Van Sant standards; the »

“Shame,” “The Raid” lead list of Tiff 2011 film sales

17 September 2011 5:51 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: Sales news out of this year’s Toronto International Film Festival was steady, with deals being negotiated throughout the festival instead of landing in massive waves either near the start or finish of the 11-day fest.

Major titles harboring Oscar aspirations, from Steve McQueen’s “Shame” and Andrea Arnold’s “Wuthering Heights” to Luc Besson’s “The Lady,” struck deals during Tiff 2011, part of an announced 31 films that left Toronto with distribution deals in place. Outside of the awards game, films that will find niche audiences (such as Bobcat Goldthwait’s pitch-black comedy “God Bless America,” the action hit “The Raid,” or Lynn Shelton’s “Your Sister’s Sister”) learned they’d be distributed to larger audiences in time.

“It’s good to see that the Festival has once again provided a solid foundation to facilitate film sales,” said Cameron Bailey, Co-Director of the Toronto International Film Festival. »

Gus Van Sant Talks Ben & Matt's Unfinished Post-'Good Will Hunting' Project, 'Restless' & More

16 September 2011 1:51 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Eclectic Filmmaker Talks James Franco, 'My Private Idaho,' Dennis Hopper & His New Coming-Of-Age Romance The title of Gus Van Sant’s latest picture, “Restless” might as well describe the director himself. Genre-hopping, making movies for both the Hollywood system and himself, and long a fixture on the indie film scene, he’s undoubtedly one of the most significant American filmmakers working today. His lastest is a far cry from his more experimental entries like "Gerry," "Last Days" or even the "Psycho" remake, tackling the story of two teens in love even as one of them suffers from terminal cancer.

Gus Van Sant Says He's Still Working Out How To Make 'The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test'

15 September 2011 6:32 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

But 'Restless' Helmer Was Never Going To Direct Artist Drama 'The Golden Suicides' Gus Van Sant is not an easily predictable director. His films are always instantly identifiable, but can vary between experimental, difficult pictures like "Gerry" and "Last Days," to more nakedly commercial fare like "Finding Forrester," and, occasionally, as in "To Die For" and "Milk," a sweet spot in between. His latest, "Restless," is another left turn, a quirky teen romance from a first time screenwriter, Jason Lew, that stars Henry Hopper, son of Dennis, and "Alice in Wonderland" lead Mia Wasikowska. For a brief moment, the release… »

Tiff 2011: Damsels In Distress Review

13 September 2011 11:21 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

For those pining for the return Whit Stillman, the 1990s indie sensation whose trilogy of films, Metropolitan, Barcelona and Last Days of Disco carved out a lasting auteur niche in a decade full of American indie-breakouts, his first film in 13 years technically meets that basic criteria - he has made a film - but it is not exactly what the faithful might expect.  The director has always leaned towards dense dialogue over visual flourishes making him sort of a socialite, yuppie-focused Kevin Smith (I probably just lost the 'criterion collector crowd' with that comparison and in all fairness, Stillman was there first.)  Yet his characters always displayed some level of humanity between the witty dialogue and a signature high-minded, entitled brand of narcissism acting »

Loves of the living dead

12 September 2011 9:54 PM, PDT | blogs.suntimes.com/ebert | See recent Roger Ebert's Blog news »

• Toronto Entry #4

There is a Truffaut film, rarely seen, named "The Green Room," based on the Henry James short story "The Altar of the Dead." That was about a man whose constant companions were the friends he had lost. He was faithful to their shrines in his memory. The term for his obsession is thanatopsis, a meditation upon death. Truffaut himself plays the hero of his film, and maintains a little chapel to the memory of his late wife and other loved ones. Nathalie Baye plays a woman he meets who shares his devotion, and it seems possible they may find happiness together, but she cannot reach him because his mind seems to reside in the next world.

This doesn't seem to be a theme that would attract Gus Van Sant, one of the most cutting-edge of directors, but then he rarely makes films that resemble one another. Here at Toronto he is showing "Restless, »

Tiff 2011: Ricky D’s 10 Alternative Picks #5: Three clips from Whit Stillman’s ‘Damsels In Distress’

9 September 2011 11:06 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Would you believe it has been 13 long years since Whit Stillman’s last film, the much overlooked and highly underrated Last Days of Disco. The director first broke into the scene with Metropolitan in 1990 which received an Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay launching him to the forefront of the American independent filmmaking movement of the ’90s. Now his fourth film, Damsels In Distress, is expected to be released in 2011, and is screening at the 2011 Toronto Film Festival. This time around, mumblecore alum Greta Gerwig stars as Violet, the know-it-all leader of a group of alpha girls at an elite East Coast liberal arts college. The film is essentially about three young women at the university who become romatically entangled with three young men. There is a reason why Damsels In Distress was chosen as the closing night film at Venice, and to quote one of my colleagues, “Stillman is »

25 Alternative 2011 Tiff Picks: Whit Stillman's Damsels in Distress

3 September 2011 | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

#8. Damsels in Distress Director: Whit Stillman Cast: Greta Gerwig, Adam Brody, Analeigh Tipton, Megalyn Echikunwoke, Carrie MacLemore, Hugo Becker Distributor: Rights Available Buzz: Coming in thirteen years after his masterful Last Days of Disco, there's a reason why this under-appreciated filmmaker has most of his limited oeuvre in the Criterion Collection. For those familiar with his movies, there isn't a better writer of dialogue alive today. As the closing night film in Venice, one gets the impression that the spotlight-shunning Stillman is beginning to come across as a Malick-esque reclusive figure. As long as his output is as solid as it is, we'll take what we can get. The Gist: After littering the 1990's with three of that decades most sharpest and most intelligently scripted films, Stillman skipped a decade before finally bringing us his newest vision of privileged up-an-coming yuppies. Reading like a high-brow Mean Girls, it's only a »
