Grizzly Man (2005)
Not long ago, such sentiments would’ve gotten the poster consigned to the same looney bin reserved for UFO-abduction and Bigfoot obsessives. But now, in an era when the concept of “fake news” has given many permission to dismiss any reality that doesn’t fit their private world view, such out-there speculations have hardened into “alternative facts” that fuel a paranoid sense of embattled alienation. It’s no great stretch to assume folks who’ve signed onto this notion might develop — or already have — problems elsewhere in their lives. A worst-case-scenario
The sophomore directorial feature of Russian youngster Ivan I. Tverdovskiy (he debuted in 2014 with Corrections Class), Zoology is an intriguing and sad slice of magical realism.
Natasha (Natalya Pavlenkova) is an asthenic middle-aged middle-manager, working at a zoo in a Russian coastal town. She’s lonely and shy and she lives with her elderly mother (Irina Chipizhenko). Natasha also has a tail. A real tail: a full, living continuation of the spine. The locals, including Natasha’s own mother, whisper rumours of a woman who’s “sinned with an ape”; a woman with three tails; a woman of the Devil. Local folklore is rife, isolating Natasha further. She finally decides to have her tail looked at by doctors, which brings her into contact with Peter (Dmitriy Groshev), a handsome young radiologist many years her junior.

Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call New Orleans (2009)
Director: Werner Herzog
Screenplay: William Finkelstein
If there ever was a better example of how to show the old adage true that it’s not what the film is about but rather, how it’s about it… Abel Ferrara’s 1992 masterpiece ‘Bad Lieutenant‘, took place on the streets of New York and starred Harvey Keitel as a “bad lieutenant”. He wasn’t even given a name in the film. He did every drug he could, he pulled over women to sexually harass them, he screwed hookers, and gambled large amounts of money. In between, he tries to solve a crime, haphazardly involving the rape of a local nun. I met

Tonight, Herzog will sit down at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York to discuss how music inspires his films, using clips to illustrate his unique ear. Throughout his more than 50-year career, Herzog has collaborated with a wide array of musicians, including krautrock band Popul Vuh, German composer Klaus Badelt and Dutch cellist Ernst Reijseger. The event is part of the Red Bull Music Academy, an annual series of music workshops and festivals that travels to a different city every year.

“A Gray State”
It might be the craziest story
U.S. audiences are finally going to have the opportunity to see Nicole Kidman’s portrayal of Gertrude Bell in “Queen of the Desert.” The biopic of the renowned British archaeologist, explorer, writer, traveler, cartographer, spy, and political officer’s life will be released April 7 in La and NY, and will also be available on VOD, a press release has announced.
Written and directed by Werner Herzog (“Grizzly Man”), “Queen of the Desert” made its world premiere at the Berlinale in 2015. The drama follows “a trailblazing woman who found freedom in the faraway world of the Middle East,” its official synopsis details. “Gertrude Bell (Kidman) chafes against the stifling rigidity of life in turn-of-the-century England, leaving it behind for a chance to travel to Tehran. So begins her lifelong adventure across the Arab world, a journey marked by danger, a passionate affair with a British officer (James Franco), and an encounter with the legendary T.E. Lawrence (Robert Pattinson). Stunningly shot on location in Morocco and Jordan, ‘Queen of the Desert’ reveals how an ahead-of-her-time woman shaped the course of history.”
“I think I’m good at casting and that’s a very decisive part of what I do. And Nicole Kidman is the ideal,” Herzog has said. “She gives a performance that is unprecedented. I have not seen anything like this at least in a whole decade from any actress in any film. So it’s of a phenomenal caliber.”
The “Lion” actress is receiving excellent reviews for her performance in HBO’s “Big Little Lies.” The limited series sees Kidman playing a woman in an abusive relationship. Kidman is also serving as an executive producer on the murder mystery.
Kidman’s upcoming projects include Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled,” set during the Civil War, Season 2 of Jane Campion’s feminist mystery series “Top of the Lake,” Rebecca Miller’s comedic drama “She Came to Me,” and “Photograph 51,” the story of an X-ray crystallographer and the role she played in the discovery of the double helix structure of DNA.
Check out the new trailer for “Queen of the Desert” below. “I’m not afraid. For the first time in my life I know who I am,” Gertrude says. “My heart belongs to no one but the desert.”
“Queen of the Desert” Gets a U.S. Release Date and New Trailer was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

“He’s the first time you have a real independent. [Trump has] turned against the Republican Party, and he’s vehemently against the media, justifiably so to some degree, and I find this a very significant novelty,” the “Grizzly Man” director told Rolling Stone. “Trump and Bernie Sanders stuck out because he’s authentic. And it’s mysterious how Trump is getting away with literally everything. I see it with great, strange fascination. Very, very unusual.”

Not far from the big round dome atop the Griffith Observatory, leaning on a railing that overlooks the Greater Los Angeles sinkhole, the German director Werner Herzog, 74, removes a tissue from his pocket and dabs at his eyes. His eyes are leaking. They've been leaking for the past hour or so. The tear fluid builds up in the corner of one of his blue eyes, then starts to cascade down his cheeks, halted only when he dab, dab, dabs.
He does not explain this. In fact,
The Society of Film Directors (Srf), which brings together top French filmmakers, said it was honoring Herzog with the Carrosse d’Or to “pay tribute to [his] relentless energy and [his] great creativity,” as well as his “ability to juggle formats, production norms and systems, and to blur the lines between fiction and documentary, feature films and television, reason and madness.”
“We also pay homage to your leadership and your powerful capacity to pull in Hollywood stars as well as unknown people and amateurs, and to the way you impose your distinctive tone and vision, flouting moral conventions and political correctness,” the Sfr added.
Launched in 2002 by Srf, the Carrosse d’Or recognizes a director each year for “the innovative qualities in his/her films,
The film recently made its debut on the festival circuit, hitting up Telluride, Toronto and Rome in short order, and now it’s poised to rocket straight into your eyeballs, thanks to a steaming deal with Netflix that will bring the majestic power of both volcanoes and Herzog — together, at last, finally — right into your own home. No place is safe. But, then again, isn’t that exactly what Herzog has been telling us all these years?

Employing the same narrative format as Johnson’s previous film, The Dirties, Johnson and his team, including writer and creative partner, Owen Williams, cast themselves in this reproduction of alternate history. The result is a fascinating comedy-thriller, that also serves as a meticulous love letter to both the technology of the time period and cinema’s ability to obscure our perception of time and space.
In time for its expanded limited release, we had an expansive conversation
1. “Unforgiven” (available October 1)
The winner of four Oscars, including Best Picture, Clint Eastwood’s 1992 film “Unforgiven” is the last Western he directed and starred in, and he made it count. About an aging outlaw tasked with one final job, the film examines the myths of the West and how they’re perverted and distorted over time, as well as the contradictions within established national archetypes. It’s arguably Eastwood’s defining masterpiece, and one of the very best films of the 90s. See it immediately.
2. “Dazed and Confused” (available October 1)
The 1993 cult classic “Dazed and Confused
Following his clumsy Gertrude Bell biopic Queen of the Desert (which still has yet to be released – if ever – in the Us), Werner Herzog is back with Salt and Fire, another scripted effort about how foreign surroundings can change a person. It’s a topic that has fascinated the film-maker for much of his storied career, most searingly in his 2005 documentary Grizzly Man. Salt and Fire has more in common with Queen of the Desert, boasting an equally risible screenplay and messy performances – but like all of Herzog’s output, it casts its own strange spell.
In clumsy but hilarious fashion, Herzog gets needed exposition out of the way early in Salt and Fire by having his heroine,
