Andrew Dominik’s Marilyn Monroe Biopic ‘Blonde’ Is Not a Done Deal at Netflix

3 hours ago | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

“I think that Blonde will be one of the ten best movies ever made,” Andrew Dominik says. “That’s why I want to do it.” And the director behind The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford has been wanting to do it for many years now. In 2010, Blonde and My Week with Marilyn were the competing Marilyn Monroe […]

Andrew Dominik Says Criterion Not Interested In Releasing ‘The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford’

1 December 2016 1:37 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There are few contemporary films, except maybe Kenneth Lonergan‘s “Margaret,” that boast a dedicated effort by cinephiles for people to give it the attention it deserves, but then again, there are few films quite like Andrew Dominik‘s “The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford.” The tale is a familiar one, with Dominik struggling to get Warner Bros.

Inside Nick Cave's Heartbreaking 'One More Time With Feeling' Doc

1 December 2016 12:00 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

When filmmaker Andrew Dominik heard that the 15-year-old son of Nick Cave had fallen off a cliff and died, he immediately phoned the Bad Seeds singer. They had known each other for decades, and Cave had co-written the score for the director's 2007 movie The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford – so he wanted to support his friend. The musician didn't pick up; a few days later, he texted that he would be giving him a ring. "I was terrified at the thought of receiving that phone call, »

‘One More Time With Feeling’ Clip: Nick Cave Faces Loss In Its Many Forms In Emotional Documentary — Watch

30 November 2016 2:39 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Andrew Dominik’s “One More Time With Feeling” originally began as a performance-based concept film centered around the making of a brand new Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds album, but it evolved into something much more complex and emotional. Dominik and Cave eventually sought to dive more deeply into the personal backdrop of the writing and recording of the album, one that was marked by intense personal tragedy, as Cave had recently lost his young son when the film went into production.

As our Ben Croll explained in his Venice review of the film, “Understandably, the singer didn’t want to tap that raw nerve with every Tom, Dick and Harry doing press rounds, so instead he tapped friend and collaborator Andrew Dominik (Cave wrote the score to ‘The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford’) to wrangle some kind of promo doc-cum-earnest exploration, and to improvise it all on the fly. »

Recommended Discs & Deals: ‘Pete’s Dragon,’ ‘Carol,’ ‘Two Lovers,’ and More

Every week we dive into the cream of the crop when it comes to home releases, including Blu-ray and DVDs, as well as recommended deals of the week. Check out our rundown below and return every Tuesday for the best (or most interesting) films one can take home. Note that if you’re looking to support the site, every purchase you make through the links below helps us and is greatly appreciated.

Pete’s Dragon (David Lowery)

Unburdened by expectations — unlike some Sundance alums who have carried the weight of Hollywood’s biggest franchises — David Lowery is the ideal director to take on a new version of this fantastical adventure about a boy and his best friend. Carrying on a lyrical, timeless approach that served his break-out drama Ain’t The Bodies Saints so well, his update of Pete’s Dragon has an emotional sensitivity, aesthetic clarity, and all-around sense »

The Best Movie Scores of The 21st Century — IndieWire Critics Survey

28 November 2016 1:56 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question:

Last Friday saw the release of Garth Davis’ “Lion,” the musical score for which is the gorgeous result of a collaboration between two giants of the neo-classical movement, Dustin O’Halloran and Hauschka. It’s just the latest indication that we’re living in a fascinating, vibrant time for movie music, and December boasts a number of films that will only add more fuel to that fire. With that in mind, we asked our panel of critics to name their favorite film score of the 21st Century.

Home is Where the Heartache Is: Casey Affleck and Kenneth Lonergan talk Manchester by the SeaHome is Where the Heartache Is: Casey Affleck and Kenneth Lonergan talk Manchester by the SeaMarni Weisz - Editor, Cineplex Magazine11/23/2016 3:03:00 Pm

Casey Affleck has been getting a lot of attention for Manchester by the Sea since the drama set in a small town along the Massachusetts coast debuted at Sundance in January.

He plays Lee Chandler, a man destroyed by a personal tragedy that prompts him to leave his hometown for Boston, an hour’s drive away, where he lives a solitary life as a janitor. But when his brother (Kyle Chandler) dies of heart failure, Lee has to return home to take care of his teenaged nephew (Lucas Hedges) and confront his past.

Applause for the film only amplified in September when it screened at the Toronto International Film Festival ahead »

'Manchester by the Sea' Review: Casey Affleck Drama Is One of Year's Best Movies

15 November 2016 8:57 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

You can't really prepare yourself for the emotional powerhouse that is Manchester by the Sea. And you shouldn't let big-mouth critics and friends tell you too much about what's ahead in writer-director Kenneth Lonergan's transcendent benchmark. No film this year has moved me more with its humor, heart and humanity.

I will say this much: Lonergan's script – a model of exceptional screenwriting without being tidy, timid or tactful – concerns the ramifications of a family tragedy, one that extends from those directly involved to the community that alternately offers and withholds nurturing support. »

‘Magneto’ Music Video: Watch the Latest from Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

7 November 2016 1:58 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Nick Cave has become ever more prominent in the world of film composing over the last several years, but “Magneto” doesn’t have anything to do with “X-Men.” The song is taken from “Skeleton Tree,” the latest album by Cave’s band the Bad Seeds, the recording of which Andrew Dominick recently documented in “One More Time with Feeling.” Watch its new music video below.

“Skeleton Tree” is Cave’s first album since the accidental death of his teenage son last year, a tragedy that of course factors into Dominick’s film. The black-and-white video for “Magneto” revolves around Cave (literally) as he sings and plays the piano, bright lights flashing all around him and his bandmates in a recording studio.

Star Trek Beyond (Justin Lin)

After the pleasant fluff of its kick-off installment and the frog march of unpleasantness that was Into Darkness, the rebooted Star Trek film series finally hits a fun median between big-budget bombast and classic Trek bigheartedness with Star Trek Beyond. Does the franchise’s full descent into action, with only the barest lip service paid to big ideas, cause Gene Roddenberry’s ashes to spin in their space capsule? Probably, but in the barren desert of summer 2016 blockbusters, »

Casey Affleck, who was Oscar nominated for “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford” and starred in “Manchester by the Sea,” has joined Robert Redford in the cast of crime caper “The Old Man and the Gun.” Rocket Science is handling international sales, with Wme and CAA representing U.S. rights.

Endgame Entertainment and Karl Spoerri’s Zurich-based Spk Pictures are financing the project with Endgame’s James D. Stern producing alongside Condé Nast’s Jeremy Steckler and Dawn Ostroff. Redford, Anthony Mastromauro and Bill Holderman are also producing. 

Principal photography is scheduled to begin in early spring in Ohio.

Based on a 2003 New Yorker article by David Grann, the pic tells the true story of Forrest Tucker (Redford), an outlaw with 18 successful prison breaks and a lifetime of bank robberies to his name. »

How Casey Affleck Found the Role of a Lifetime in ‘Manchester by the Sea’

18 October 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The last person who’d ever want to watch a Casey Affleck movie is Casey Affleck. “I don’t like it, in the way you don’t like hearing your own voice on the machine,” Affleck says over a long lunch in a vegan restaurant in West Hollywood. The conversation starts with routine chitchat but twists at this revelation: Affleck hasn’t seen many of his big-screen appearances, including “The Finest Hours” (in which he plays the engineer of a sinking ship), “Triple 9” (a cop), “The Killer Inside Me” (a sociopath), the Eddie Murphy comedy “Tower Heist” (a concierge), or even Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” (the brother). “It’s a bummer,” Affleck says, “because I like Nolan, and I love science fiction. But I didn’t want to watch that.”

On a Saturday afternoon last January, Affleck broke his own rule when he quietly slid into an aisle seat »
