Indie-credible: Keeping up with the Indies

25 November 2010 9:19 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Emma Farley dusts off a few favourites in the latest edition of Indie-credible...

We’ve reached that awkward time of year for cinema-going – that in between stage where the summer blockbusters are over and yet we’re not quite into the awards season. Indie film picking is getting increasingly slim at the moment and before we know it the cinemas will be packed full of Christmas movies. Now I’m all for a bit of festive fun but sometimes you need something a bit more substantial.

With the weather being so dark and miserable and funds severely lacking what with Christmas shopping and it being a whole week until pay day yet, I’ve taken to staying in and catching up on the DVDs that have been piling up on my bedroom floor. So this week I thought I’d recommend some of my favourite indies that you might have missed. »

Brother and Sister

7 October 2010 8:00 AM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Quickcard Review – 46th Chicago International Film Festival

Click Here for complete coverage of the Chicago International Film Festival (Ciff 2010)

Brother and Sister

Directed by: Daniel Burman

Cast: Antonio Gasalla, Graciela Borges, Elena Lucena

Running Time: 1 hr 45 min

Rating: R

Release Date: Tbd

Plot: A brother and a sister struggle to come to terms with their mother’s death as well as with one another in this import from Argentina.

Who’S It For? The movie itself draws an immediate comparison to the Laura Linney and Phillip Seymour Hoffman movie The Savages. Fans of coming-of-age dramas and foreign films may enjoy this tale of the complicated relationship between two siblings.

Overall

Brother & Sister is an enjoyable slice of life piece from director Daniel Burman. While some folks may find it slow, which is it is in some parts, most importantly it is a sincere effort. It doesn’t set about chronicling »

Jack Goes Boating

24 September 2010 7:00 AM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Jack Goes Boating

Directed by: Philip Seymour Hoffman

Cast: Philip Seymour Hoffman, John Ortiz, Amy Ryan, Daphne Rubin-Vega

Running Time: 1 hr 40 mins

Rating: R

Release Date: September 10, 2010

Plot: An awkward limo driver (Hoffman) must learn to swim before he can go boating with a woman (Ryan) he met on a blind date. They are both friends with a couple (Ortiz, Rubin-Vega) whose marriage appears to be stuck on the rocks.

Who’S It For?: Fans of Hoffman’s moodier work, as they might be more familiar with the dry humor that he has explored in certain films like The Savages.

Expectations: Academy Award-winner Hoffman has shown a certain mastery for the on-screen performance. With this being film-director debut, I was curious to see how the versatile actor views the world, and if his own film would echo those made by others previously in the captain’s chair.

IFC Picks Up James Gunn’s Super Starring Rainn Wilson and Ellen Page – Updated with Press Release

12 September 2010 2:53 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Less than 48 hours after it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, James Gunn’s (Slither) Super has found its distributor.  IFC Films has paid seven figures to secure the U.S. rights to Gunn’s everyman take on the superhero archetype.  While IFC normally pays less for its deals, they apparently faced some stiff competition for the film from potential buyers such as Magnolia.

Super stars Rainn Wilson as an “average guy” who takes on the persona of “The Crimson Bolt” upon learning that his wife is having an affair.  Starring alongside Wilson are Ellen Page, Liv Tyler, and Kevin Bacon.  To learn more about Super, check out Steve’s video blog/review of the film which he recorded shortly after its Toronto premiere.

[Update: You can now check out the official press release after the jump.]

Hugh Dancy, Kathryn Hahn, Shirley Knight, and Janet Montgomery Round Out My Idiot Brother Cast

21 July 2010 1:26 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

To cast Paul Rudd at the center of your comedy, as My Idiot Brother casting director Jeanne McCarthy chose to do, is a solid start.  To surround him with the likes of Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, Emily Mortimer, Rashida Jones, and Adam Scott approaches brilliance.  As such, you can trust that the remaining roles — now filled by Hugh Dancy, Kathryn Hahn, Shirley Knight, and Janet Montgomery — are in good hands.

Described as “a comedy about family and the sacrifices it takes to deal with them”, My Idiot Brother is currently shooting in New York City.  Hit the jump for the official press release.

Jack Goes Boating And Here's The Poster To Prove It.

9 July 2010 4:15 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Why is Jack always going boating? I have no idea but Philip Seymour Hoffman might. His latest movie "Jack Goes Boating" is about a guy who goes boating. All The Freaking Time. I'm kidding, I actually don't know what it's about and I haven't read the synopsis yet, so let's all discover this new movie's plot together, shall we?Jack Goes Boating is a tale of love, betrayal, friendship and grace centered around two working-class New York City couples. The film stars John Ortiz (American Gangster), Daphne Rubin-Vega (Broadway’s “Rent”), Amy Ryan (Gone Baby Gone) and Philip Seymour Hoffman (Capote), with Hoffman making his feature directorial debut. Bob Glaudini (“A View From 151st Street”) adapted his acclaimed Off Broadway play for the screen. Jack (Philip Seymour Hoffman) and Connie (Amy Ryan) are two single people who on their own might continue to recede into the anonymous background of the city, »

How To Train Your Pundit (More Oscar Predictions)

7 April 2010 4:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

First, keep an open mind.

Second, also keep it closed.

The art of Oscar predictions is to both embrace the obvious and then to shoo it away. You can't let the obvious choices hoodwink you into believing that the same types of movies and same exact people that were once embraced will be reembraced each year. Because it doesn't work (exactly) like that.

Like anyone else I've made some terrible calls over the years but one thing I'm really proud of in my Oscar prediction track record is that I am not as beholden to statistics as some of my fellow pundits. That's how I've been able to call people correctly who the precursors didn't treat that well. Some of my proudest "they'll be nominated!" moments over the years: Ed Harris and Marcia Gay Harden for Pollock; Pedro Almodovar for Talk to Her; Laura Linney for The Savages and in some cases, »

Sundance 2010 - 'Jack Goes Boating' review (4/5)

9 February 2010 4:35 AM, PST | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

Hoffman meets all first-time filmmaker expectations with wonderful 'Jack Goes Boating' The best complement one can say about the working-class romance "Jack Goes Boating" is that Phillip Seymour Hoffman's directing debut is a worthy match to his acclaimed acting career. Smart, realistic and surprisingly sweet natured, "Jack Goes Boating" is the perfect cinematic response to the 2007 stage play starring Hoffman, John Ortiz and Daphne Rubin-Vega at New York's LAByrinth theater collective. What I mean by perfect is that "Jack Goes Boating" wonderfully captures playwright and screenwriter Bob Glaudini's story of average New Yorkers struggling to find love and happiness in their workaday lives. Hoffman, Ortiz and Rubin-Vega know their characters well and bring them to life via easygoing, full-fledged performances. Working with cameraman Mott Hupfel ("The Savages"), Hoffman brings cinematic pizzazz to the storytelling via artistic flourishes (especially in the scenes where Jack learns to swim »

Oscars guided by guild awards in nominations

2 February 2010 4:44 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

This year, 19 of the 20 SAG acting nominees are contending at the Academy Awards. The only one not to make the cut was SAG supporting actress contender Diane Kruger ("Inglourious Basterds"), who was replaced on the Oscars ballot by Maggie Gyllenhaal ("Crazy Heart").

Last year, 18 of the 19 SAG acting nominees repeated at the Academy Awards. As double SAG nominee Kate Winslet was bumped up by the Oscars from supporting to lead for "The Reader," she was denied a lead nod for "Revolutionary Road." However, that film's Michael Shannon managed to knock SAG nominee Dev Patel of "Slumdog Millionaire" out of the supporting race.

Two years ago, 15 of the 20 SAG nominees went on to compete at the Oscars. Three years ago, it was also 19 of the 20 with the one variation coming from the same film -- "The Departed" -- as SAG nominee Leonardo DiCaprio was replaced at Oscar time by Mark Wahlberg. »

IFC picks up Todd Solondz’s ‘Life During Wartime’

22 January 2010 4:53 PM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

A small victory for the independent film world – writer/director Todd Solondz has finally found a distributor for his latest film, Life During Wartime. At the previous Venice International Film Festival, Wartime won Solondz accolades for best screenplay.

Finally, Americans will be able to see the “quasi-sequel” to his 1998 film Happiness when Life During Wartime rolls into theatres summer 2010. The drama (dark comedy?) will be available through IFC’s “In Theaters” Platform, which releases films on demand and also to the silver screen at the same time.

Life During Wartime stars Alison Janney, Paul Reubens, Ciaran Hinds, Ally Sheedy, Michael Lerner, and Chris Marquette.  (Happiness featured performances from Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jon Lovitz, Dylan Baker, and Molly Shannon. That film is highly recommended, but considering it is the most awkward film I’ve ever seen, it’s not for the easily offended. At all).

Anyone else excited for this?

Decalogue: HollywoodChicago.com Evaluates Films From 2000 to 2009

14 January 2010 9:32 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – In developing Top Ten film lists every year, the “critic” tends to move on and simply forget what they said in previous annual evaluations. Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com looks back, with less fear than expected.

The following list is a little different from the typical film decade analysis. There will be a showcase of all number one films in each of the decade’s years, according to McDonald, and then a reassessment as to if that film still belong in that top spot. If it doesn’t, another film from that year will replace it. Hindsight rules!

So rev up the flux capacitor and pilot the DeLorean back, as Patrick McDonald studies the effects of the number one films of the last ten years.

TV News: Laura Linney and Piper Perabo Head to the Small Screen, While Mark Burnett Holds Our Little Genius Back a Grade

7 January 2010 11:19 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

By far, the biggest story in television right now is the possible removal of Leno from NBC’s schedule after the Olympics, but there is plenty of other newsworthy movement in TV Land at the moment.  Showtime has ordered The Big C, which stars Laura Linney as a wife and mother whose life is shaken when she is diagnosed with cancer.  USA has picked up Covert Spaces, which stars Piper Perabo as a young CIA trainee.  And Fox has pulled quiz show Our Little Genius from the schedule less than a week before its intended January 13th premiere date for reshoots.

To learn what lured film stars Linney and Perabo to the small screen and why Burnett delayed his own show, hit the jump.

According to THR, Showtime has ordered thirteen half-hour episodes for the premiere season of The Big C.  The show had a working title of The C-Word, »

Top 50 Performances of the Decade (Female)

5 January 2010 4:59 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

This list has more repeat offenders than the male list yesterday. Please give these 45 talented women one last round of applause before we take a break from the decade stuff to embark on the 2009 awards. As with the male list, I didn't include any 2009 performances (let the year settle first) though there is at least one that would obviously (x 50) be here if I did...

"And it's time my luck changed. And it's time something went right for me!"

-"Julia" makes a plea for a surprise Tilda Swinton nomination this year.

Please Note: This list should not be mistaken for an updated 'Actresses of the Aughts' chart. [editors note: I may attempt to return to that massive project in a definitive way after this year's Oscar race is complete]. How you feel about someone's entire career can be markedly different than how you feel about individual turns and an actress whose skill you may admire might not hit you as hard emotionally as she hits others. Then there are actresses I »
