The Last Man on Earth Recap: One of the Good Guys?

22 March 2015 7:54 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The Last Man on Earth does double duty tonight, offering us two episodes and, finally, two men. Now that we’ve got an even gender distribution, you’d think everyone could finally stop worrying about having sex with each other, but you’d be wrong.The evening’s first installment kicks off with Phil devising a plan to get Carol’s blessing to bed Melissa. Never mind the fact that Melissa might not want to bed him. We viewers know another man is on his way because the episode is intercut with dreamy, Drive-like shots of a sports car racing toward Phil’s “Alive in Tucson” signs. (Raise your hand if you were hoping Ryan Gosling would be the driver here, too.) When Carol insists “we need to have as many babies as possible,” Phil sees an opening, realizing that with careful planning, he might have a shot at »

In addition, 12-time Oscar nominee Thomas Newman (The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Saving Mr. Banks) has been signed to score the film, as John Williams' schedule was interrupted and he was unavailable to score the film due to a minor health issue, now corrected.

A dramatic thriller set against the backdrop of a series of historic events, Bridge of Spies tells the story of James Donovan (Hanks), a Brooklyn lawyer who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible task to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot.

Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon Will Feature Cannibalistic Supermodels

16 March 2015 9:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Given his track record, Nicolas Winding Refn honestly has my money as soon as he announces a new project. With gripping character study Bronson, stylish modern classic Drive (possibly my favorite movie of all-time) and the hypnotic Only God Forgives under his belt, the filmmaker is one of the most unique voices working in cinema today. And judging by new tidbits about his upcoming horror movie The Neon Demon, that’s not about to change anytime soon.

While being interviewed by Dazed and Confused last month about her documentary My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn, the filmmaker’s wife, Liv Corfixen, let slip some fascinating details about The Neon Demon‘s inspirations – including that the film is inspired by Countess Elizabeth Báthory, a notoriously cruel 16th-century countess who was rumored to bathe in the blood of local virgins. Báthory tortured these young girls and murdered them in hopes of »

Video Game Review – Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number

15 March 2015 5:44 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Burgoyne reviews Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number

So for anybody that played the original Hotline Miami game, you’ll know what to expect already… That’s right, absolute carnage. For those that didn’t… Why didn’t you play one of the most original games of 2013 huh?! Well it’s now currently at the pocket friendly price of £3.99 so there’s no excuse. A quick re-cap then, HM1 was an extremely violent top down shooter with a heavy 1980s visual style and soundtrack. Sound good? Think Drive meets GTA, but without cars. or Ryan Gosling. There you go, now onto the sequel…

Wrong number does a lot of things right, for one thing there’s more of a story here. I mean yeah it’s a bonkers one involving mafia bosses, vague Russian wars and an obese man who wears snake masks. We’ve all been there right? The »

Channing Tatum & Ryan Gosling Eye Steve McQueen Biopic

13 March 2015 4:21 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Lake Forrest Entertainment and The Exchange have joined forces to provide financing for a new biopic on Hollywood action icon Steve McQueen. The project, currently titled McQueen, has already attracted the interest of director James Gray (The Immigrant) and stars such as Channing Tatum, Ryan Gosling and Jeremy Renner. The production companies are currently seeking a screenwriter at this time.

The project will be partially based on Marshall Terrill's 2010 biography Steve McQueen: The Life And Legend Of A Hollywood Icon. The book chronicles the actor's entire life, from his childhood in Indiana throughout his Hollywood career and his death in Cuidad Juarez, Mexico at the age of 50, from a heart attack after an experimental cancer surgery. The actor, whose hit movies include The Magnificent Seven, The Great Escape and Bullitt, just to name a few, was one of the first in Hollywood to explore alternative cancer treatments. The »

Murder by dance numbers: ranking Ryan Gosling's pre-fame moves

13 March 2015 3:47 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

A new set of videos show the pre-teen alternately impressing and alarming in Mc Hammer pants. But which is the best performance from the Oscar-nominee-to-be?

Ryan Gosling’s brooding persona, carefully carved in largely dialogue-free performances in Drive, Only God Forgives and The Place Beyond the Pines, exists snugly alongside his role as a tumblr-inspiring ovary-whispering ladykiller, influenced by his roles in The Notebook and Crazy, Stupid Love and his gif-ready abs.

If you’re a fan of his more meme-ready side then this past week has offered up a bounty of viral riches.

Beyond Fright: Exclusive Interview With Filmmakers Nicolas Winding Refn & Liv Corfixen!

6 March 2015 12:58 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Most cinephiles are already well versed in the career of the artistically wonderful Nicolas Winding Refn. From the early days of his Pusher trilogy to the Tom Hardy-led Bronson, to the critically and financially successful Drive, Nwr has done an excellent job creating a worldwide recognition for himself and with good reason. He’s a rare voice in today’s world of film, and his follow up to Drive, Only God Forgives is a poetic and violent film filled with visually striking elements. Liv Corfixen, Refn’s wife, documented the ins and out of dealing and living with Nwr during the time period in which Only God Forgives was filmed, and the result is My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn (review). It’s a very interesting and thoroughly entertaining documentary that doesn’t hide the fact that sometimes making films is hard and living with someone who is »

Listen: 82-Minute Talk With Nicolas Winding Refn And Liv Corfixen About Making 'Only God Forgives' And More

4 March 2015 9:11 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Love it or loathe it, Nicolas Winding Refn's "Only God Forgives" was a distinctive and completely polarizing piece of work. As the filmmaker himself admits, it found him consciously destroying everything that made "Drive" a success. He wanted to ensure he didn't get stuck repeating himself. But it resulted in an anxiety filled shoot for the director, captured on camera by his wife Liv Corfixen, who turned it into the documentary "My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn." It's an up close look at Refn's process on the movie from the kind of perspective you don't often get. And over the weekend, the pair hit New York City to talk about the film. The Close-Up podcast captured that conversation, and as always, Refn makes an enjoyable raconteur. He reveals that he's a "big admirer of reality television," which made it easy for him to be filmed by Corfixen, and »

Beyond Fright Review: My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn

2 March 2015 2:13 AM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Danish born filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn is one of the most exciting and diverse directors working in and outside the film industry today. A cinephile who states that Tobe Hooper’s Texas Chain Saw Massacre is the film that cemented his desire to one day make a picture himself, Refn’s films exude such cinematic passion with a stark, specific vision, and as much style as there is substance in every film he’s created. If you’ve ever wondered on the thought process of such an auteur, then step right up, because My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn delivers that in harsh spades.

My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn (referred here on out as Mldbnwr) chronicles the making of Only God Forgives, Refn’s stylish, Alejandro Jodorowsky dedicated, neon-drenched deconstruction of a leading Hollywood star. Shot and directed by his fellow filmmaker wife Liv Corfixen, we’re »

Nicolas Winding Refn Talks 'My Life' Doc, What's Next, Dropping Studio Gigs & The Reaction To 'Only God Forgives'

27 February 2015 12:00 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This is a reprint of our interview from the 2014 Fantastic Fest. When it comes to documentaries that chart the making of a particular film, some of the very best have come from those closest to the filmmakers. The most towering achievement in this regard is probably "Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse," an intense making-of documentary that follows Francis Ford Coppola and the bonkers production of "Apocalypse Now," which was co-authored by Coppola's wife, Eleanor. Following in Eleanor's footsteps is Liv Corfixen, the wife of "Drive" filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn, who took to cataloguing the production of Refn's polarizing, Bangkok-set thriller "Only God Forgives," with "My Life Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn." We had the chance to sit down with Refn and Corfixen at the recent Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas. The documentary is an intimate portrait of frustration and familial unrest (since they had to move the family »

My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn DVD review

27 February 2015 8:49 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Filmmaker Liv Corfixen brings us a documentary about her director husband. Here's Ryan's review of My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn.

When Only God Forgives made its debut at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, it’s fair to say the reaction was somewhat mixed. Some hooted and derided the film. A few got up and left. Many, on the other hand, championed director Nicolas Winding Refn’s follow up to his critically-acclaimed Drive, also starring Ryan Gosling.

The Guardian’s Peter Bradshaw, for example, prized the film, and for this writer, it was a disturbing counterpoint to the more commercial Drive - if that film was a sun-drenched dream in which Ryan Gosling played an archetypal male hero, then Only God Forgives is the nightmare: a view of machismo gone horribly awry.

If some critics were appalled by the film, Refn had misgivings of his own. The director’s self-doubt »

Watch: Nicolas Winding Refn & Gaspar Noe Discuss Making Movies, Regrets, And More In 28-Minute Conversation

27 February 2015 8:07 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While Nicolas Winding Refn's bromance with Ryan Gosling is well documented, he also logs serious time with enfant terrible Gaspar Noé. If you ever wanted to get in a room with the pair, now is the time, as a great talk between them has surfaced. Conducted at the Danish Film Institute last year, the video is a fascinating, fun half-hour conversation between the pair. Refn talks about the tedium he felt shooting the car chases in "Drive" and how Christina Hendricks saved an otherwise dull scene, while Noé reveals his problems trying to get Monica Bellucci and Vincent Cassel to shoot a sequence he wanted for "Irreversible." They also talk about the hoops they have to go through in raising financing for their films, with Noé revealing how he got funding for his upcoming, explicit "Love" with just a few posters. It's great stuff, so watch below. »

My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn – The Review

26 February 2015 11:38 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

This review was originally published during Fantastic Fest 2014.

My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn gives us just a peek into the mind of one of cinema’s most celebrated directors. Directed and shot by his wife Liv Corfixen, My Life… is a documentary that follows the Danish director during the making of his 2013 film Only God Forgives. While her film can be appreciated as simply a small portrait of the acclaimed director, it also taps into the fear and anxiety every artist feels during the creative process. A daring undertaking for someone who has never made a documentary before.

Even though we see Refn in the most mundane situations (waking-up, playing with his kids), he still comes across as cool and enigmatic, not unlike his on-screen heroes. Often we see him in a contemplative state. There’s always a long pause for reflection before he answers a question or responds in a cryptic manner. »

Marital pressures on diplay in exclusive 'Directed by Winding Refn' clip

26 February 2015 3:50 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As Nicolas Winding Refn prepares to begin production on "The Neon Demon," his upcoming foray into horror, you can take a peek into his process thanks to the new documentary "My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn," which was made by his wife. There's a reason "Hearts Of Darkness" is often considered one of the best behind-the-scenes films about filmmaking, and it's because Eleanor Coppola had access that no one else would have. The same is true here, and it captures Refn at the moment where he was working to follow up his breakthrough hit "Drive." It's a fascinating moment for any filmmaker. In Refn's case, he did a lot of great work before "Drive," but everything came together on that movie in a very special way. Ryan Gosling was at peak cool, and there was something compelling and immediate about that title and those trailers. When you make a »

Review: 'My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn' Is An Intimate But Ultimately Unsatisfying Hour-Long Doc

26 February 2015 3:36 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Nicolas Winding Refn worked steadily before achieving any kind of mainstream appreciation, and even when he achieved just that, it felt like a minor score. His movies are sometimes damnably arty, but infused with a kicky, stylistic verve that can appeal to broad audiences. You could tell that Refn was steeped in the kind of films that art house audiences might not have been familiar with. His work willfully combines disparate influences to create a wholly intoxicating new concoction. They also share a kind of barely contained rage. "Drive," his first commercial hit, cemented him as a director to watch and made all of his bloody obsessions palpable (and won him a Best Director award at the Cannes Film Festival). But as a public figure, Refn has remained goofy and affable. If something darker lurked inside, he never showed it. Which is what makes "My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn »

Film Review: ‘My Life Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn’

26 February 2015 3:10 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rather than take a backseat to “Drive” director Nicolas Winding Refn, occasional actress and full-time housewife Liz Corfixen fires back with a film of her own, billed as a behind-the-scenes look at her helmer husband’s Bangkok-made “Only God Forgives,” but essentially a loose production diary from her point of view. For anyone who’s ever wondered what being married to a tortured, world-famous director must be like, “My Life Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn” suggests the sacrifices required of those who live in an artist’s orbit, but it fails to offer what groupies surely want, which is insight into Refn’s creative process.

Though billed as a documentary, this 59-minute doodle barely rises above homemovie status, featuring more material of Corfixen’s two daughters dancing naked around hotel rooms than it does actual on-set footage — though ambient music from “Drive” composer Cliff Martinez gives her a distinct advantage over most amateur videographers. »
