2016 Cannes Critics’ Panel Day 10: Sean Penn’s Proposes Cinematic War Zone for “The Last Face”

20 May 2016 8:15 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

A well liked actor and personality on the Croisette, he had his first outing as a filmmaker with The Indiana Runner land in the 1991 edition of the Directors’ Fortnight and saw his third film The Pledge break into the Competition in 2001, but you’d be hard pressed to find someone who’ll embrace his fifth feature film over 2007’s Into the Wild.

'The Last Face' Review Roundup: Critics Exhaust Themselves Finding New Ways to Mock Sean Penn

20 May 2016 7:41 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The first reviews of Sean Penn's "The Last Face" are in from the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, and let's just say they are something of a nightmare for the director. Starring Charlize Theron and Javier Bardem, the drama tells the love story between a director of an international aid agency and a relief aid doctor, set against the backdrop of war-torn African refugee camps. While Penn has proven some skillful directorial chops in the past (see "Into the Wild"), critics agree "The Last Face" is a major disaster. Read More: 'The Last Face': Sean Penn’s Passion Project Ripped To Shreds On Twitter After Cannes Debut In his D review, Indiewire's own Eric Kohn writes, "Even without its mopey, painfully on-the-nose dialogue and ponderous story, 'The Last Face' sets itself up for failure with its premise, and Penn's apparent inability to recognize it as such. It's his worst movie. »

'The Last Face': Sean Penn’s Passion Project Ripped To Shreds On Twitter After Cannes Debut

20 May 2016 7:26 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Though Sean Penn is best known for his storied acting career, garnering acclaim for performances in films like "Milk," "Mystic River," "Carlito's Way," "Fast Times at Ridgemont High," but he's also received acclaim for his directorial work dating back to his 1991 debut film "The Indian Runner." His 2007 film "Into The Wild," an adaptation of Jon Krakauer's book of the same name about Christopher McCandless's trek in the Alaskan wilderness, was nominated for a slew of awards and was a commercial success. But his latest film "The Last Face," about the head of an international aid organization (Charlize Theron) falling in love with a relief doctor (Javier Bardem) amidst war-torn Africa, just premiered at the Cannes Film Festival to some of the worst reviews of his career. Though Olivier Assayas' "Personal Shopper" received a few boos and Nicolas Winding Refn's "The Neon Demon" a highly polarized »

[Cannes Review] The Last Face

20 May 2016 4:24 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

There is a moment in Sean Penn’s new film — for some reason screening this week in competition in Cannes — when, having navigated the safe passage of a group of refugees from Liberia to Sierra Leone, Charlize Theron’s aid worker asks herself, “In this place of so much war, had I found peace?” It’s a paradoxical query in which basically everything right and terribly wrong about The Last Face can be found. Indeed, cakes are being had and eaten by all involved.

Penn — an active humanitarian who enjoys commendably passing bags of rice out of the backs of trucks — would like nothing more than to educate his audience on the daily horrors of this sort of work on the front line. Good for him. However, while perched upon that high horse, he chooses to also use those horrors as a backdrop and catalyst for a romance between two »

Cannes Review: Sean Penn’s ‘The Last Face’ Starring Charlize Theron and Javier Bardem

20 May 2016 4:14 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Watching Sean Penn‘s stupendously self-important “The Last Face” is an exercise in multi-layered torture. You’re not sure what hurts more: seeing accomplished actors Javier Bardem and Charlize Theron choke on laughably pompous dialogue or remembering that once-upon-a-time Penn directed real movies like “The Pledge” and “Into The Wild,” before he became a walking-talking political cartoon of […]

Cannes Film Review: ‘The Last Face’

20 May 2016 3:57 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Last year, “Beasts of No Nation” told a story of mutilated innocence in an unnamed African hell zone, but it didn’t feel compelled to add a token white hero (the caring photojournalist! the conflicted U.N. peacekeeper!) for the audience to identify with. “The Last Face,” an endless, logy cataclysm of a war-torn political drama directed by Sean Penn, goes right back to the look!-here-are-some-movie-stars-in-the-maelstrom paradigm. The film is set in some of the most blood-soaked territories of Africa – South Sudan, the Sierra Leone, Liberia — and it’s full of jaggedly edited sequences in which children lie on operating tables with their chests blown open, corpses appear in fly-buzzing piles and homemade bombs and machine-gun fire explode out of nowhere at deafening volume. At the front and center, though, are two characters who are in the crisis but not of it: Charlize Theron as Wren Petersen, a globe-trotting physician and activist, »

Sean Penn’s ‘The Last Face’ Ripped Apart on Twitter After Cannes Debut

20 May 2016 2:56 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Updated: Sean Penn’s humanitarian romance “The Last Face” is being savaged on Twitter after premiering Friday at the Cannes Film Festival. Commenters on social media are describing the film, which stars Charlize Theron and Javier Bardem, as the worst of the fest. Others are also quipping that the picture is so awful that it destroyed Penn’s relationship with Theron. The duo broke up a year ago.

When critics weighed in, they largely echoed the flash reactions that bubbled up online.

Variety Chief Film Critic Owen Gleiberman faulted Penn for spending so much time on the love story between Theron and Bardem, writing, “no matter how ‘well-meaning’ a director may be, there’s something inherently eye-rolling about being asked to care about the tragedy of African children through the Pov of two lovelorn glamour pusses.”

IndieWire’s Eric Kohn branded it the worst film of Penn’s career, writing »

New to Streaming: ‘The Witch,’ ‘Henry Gamble’s Birthday Party,’ ‘The Family Fang,’ and More

6 May 2016 9:29 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit the interwebs. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Arabian Nights (Miguel Gomes)

In lauding Miguel Gomes‘ three-part, six-and-a-half hour behemoth, it’s perhaps important to consider his background as a critic. Not just in terms of the trilogy’s cinephilic engagement with Rossellini, Alonso, Oliveira, etc.; also in its defiant nature. While it’s easy to assign the trilogy certain humanist and satirical labels from the get-go and just praise these films for following through on them, »

First Look at Sean Penn’s Cannes Drama ‘The Last Face’ Starring Charlize Theron and Javier Bardem

18 April 2016 1:55 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It’s been nearly a decade since Sean Penn‘s last directorial feature, Into the Wild, and 15 years since he last stopped by Cannes with his own film (The Pledge), but he’ll be back next month. The Last Face, which stars Charlize Theron, Javier Bardem, Adèle Exarchopoulos and Jean Reno, has been selected to premiere in competition at Cannes Film Festival, and today the first look has arrived.

Below, one can see Theron, who plays the director of an international aid agency in Africa, who meets a relief aid doctor (Bardem) during a political/social revolution. In the situation, they are presented with difficult choices when it comes humanitarianism amidst civil unrest. Penn is certainly no stranger to injecting politics into his cinema, so hopefully this one turns out more interesting that the last time he was on screen with The Gunman. Check back for our review next month from the festival, »

Sleepy Hollow Recap: Into the Woods

11 March 2016 7:05 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

My, how the worm has turned.

This week’s Sleepy Hollow keeps Abbie and Ichabod separated for the better part of the hour, a move I generally loathe in shows like this one, where watching the two charismatic leads play off each other is the main thrill. But just as I’m about to commit ritual suicide by tossing myself in the path of a giant earthworm monster, the Fox drama gives us a whole new level of Witness to unlock.

Oh, and Joe’s a Wendigo again. Kinda. It’s complicated. Read on for more on “Into the Wild. »

5 February 2016 6:19 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris — Paris Images Cinema/Industrie du Reve featured a round table on animation co-production, which included a screening of Jesus Castro’s documentary “Snowpiercer: From the Blank Page to the Black Screen,” about the making of the $40 million South Korean/French science fiction pic “Snowpiercer,” directed by Bong Joon-ho and written by Bong and Kelly Masterson, based on the French graphic novel “Le Transperceneige” by Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette.

Jesus Castro explained how the film became a cultural phenomenon in South Korea. The film clocked up 650,000 admissions — about  $4.6 million — in France and had a limited theatrical release in the U.S. after discussions about the final cut between Bong and the Weinstein Company, with the film finally released on VOD via TWC’s Radar channel, earning $2 million in the first week.

In South Korea, the film recorded over 10 million admissions. Castro said that the working rhythm on “Snowpiercer” was intense, »
