2014 in Review: Frank's Alternative Oscars

26 January 2015 11:30 AM, PST | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

It seems like every year, I see more and more Oscar-hungry campaigns for films and performances than the year before. This past year especially saw an excellent crop of actors and filmmakers contribute above-stellar work to the art of moviemaking. However, in the rush to place the ads, view the screeners and attend the parties during this most high-profile time in the film world, a large amount of first-class work has been forgotten. As a result, I have put together an alternative Oscar list featuring films and performances, which struck me as some of the best of the year and more than worthy of some well-earned recognition.

Best Picture: The Two Faces of January (2014)

How could the writer of Drive and the author of The Talented Mr. Ripley Not conspire to create perhaps the most captivating thriller of the year? Featuring three complex characters and a multi-layered plot full of suspense and intrigue, »

‘The Boy Next Door’ Review: Jennifer Lopez Smolders, But the Film Fails to Seduce

21 January 2015 9:00 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The film mostly focuses on Lopez herself — a decision that robs it of the symbiosis of fear and attraction that makes an erotic thriller...

In the last two decades, the once-disreputable genre of the erotic thriller has improbably gone arthouse, resulting in critically lauded but largely unseen indies like last year’s “Under the Skin” and “Stranger by the Lake.” A throwback to such racy but scolding Adrian Lyne movies as “Unfaithful” and “Indecent Proposal,” “The Boy Next Door” returns the mainstream erotic thriller to the multiplex, but its thin T-shirts and thinner characterizations fail to make a convincing case for the genre’s resurrection. »

Berlin: Goldcrest to Sell Roland Emmerich’s ‘Stonewall’

19 January 2015 7:21 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Goldcrest Films is to handle international rights to Roland Emmerich’s “Stonewall,” which will be introduced to buyers at the European Film Market in Berlin. Warner Bros. has acquired German-language rights, and a U.S. deal is set to be inked soon.

The film, which is in post-production, stars Jeremy Irvine (“Woman in Black: The Angel of Death,” “The Railway Man,” “War Horse”), Jonathan Rhys Meyers (“Mission Impossible III,” “Tudors”), Ron Perlman (“Drive,” “Hellboy” I and II) and Joey King (“White House Down,” “The Conjuring”).

It recreates the events that culminated in the riots outside the Stonewall Inn, Greenwich Village, in June 1969, which is seen as the birth of the gay rights movement.

The drama centers on Danny Winters (Irvine), a young man who is kicked out of his home by his parents and flees to NY where, homeless and destitute, he befriends a group of street kids who »

Beyond Fright Review: The Two Faces Of January

17 January 2015 3:15 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

The art of creating a successful mystery seems to be lost on many of today’s filmmakers and their films. Instead of allowing a solid story to play out in front of you and keep you guessing, a lot of films falling into the mystery/thriller genre tend to utilize the same ol’ twists and turns we’ve all seen time and time again. When a film comes along and offers a story full of suspense and surprise, it’s a surprise and a very refreshing one at that. Luckily, Drive screenwriter Hossein Amini’s feature directorial debut, The Two Faces Of January, is just that type of film, one that keeps you guessing until the very end.

Adapted from The Talented Mr. Ripley author Patricia Highsmith’s novel of the same name, The Two Faces Of January throws you into a thriller full of twists, double crosses and a »

DVD Review: 'The Guest'

11 January 2015 8:33 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆One era's genre cinema becomes another generation's cultural harvest. As the cycle repeats itself, the line between pastiche and revisionism becomes increasingly tenuous and viewers can find themselves becoming lazy purveyors of B-movie nostalgia. For revivalism to work, the film must primarily function on its own terms. It can trade in genre scavenging and meta nods, but the foundation is lost if it is built entirely on such flimsy ground. Nicolas Winding Refn's Drive (2011) acknowledged its debt to the thrillers of the VHS era, but wasn't shackled to them. With The Guest (2014), promising young horror director Adam Wingard joins the legions of filmmakers who have learned the wrong lessons from Drive.

The Callow Way – How a Hollywood flop got £20 million from the British taxpayer

11 January 2015 4:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week Neil Calloway looks how 47 Ronin qualified for a subsidy from the UK government…

Have you seen 47 Ronin? If you haven’t, I wouldn’t bother if I was you. It’s That-Historical-Film-You’ve-Seen-a-Hundred-Times-Before. An outsider, after being saved by the daughter of a great man, helps a group of natives. It’s very very loosely based on a true story. The opening narration is like something from a video game cut scene. To be honest, it might have worked as one of those BBC Saturday evening series that they show when Doctor Who isn’t on, but a $175 million dollar action film it is not. The Flickering Myth review said “a weak script and shallow characterisation, which makes this only average at best”, which is about right.

There was trouble before it was already released, with reshoots and delays and the studio pretty much acknowledging they were going »

Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon to Star Elle Fanning

7 January 2015 11:37 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Last summer it was revealed that Elle Fanning is lined up to star as Frankenstein author Mary Shelley in Haifaa Al-Mansour’s romantic period piece, A Storm in the Stars. In addition to her role as Shelley, the actress is now looking to be involved in another horror-related project from another acclaimed director, as it’s been revealed that Fanning is set to star in Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon.

According to The Wrap, Elle Fanning is looking to star as an “aspiring model who is caught in a world of beauty and demise” in the female-centric horror film from Refn. Filming on The Neon Demon will begin early this year in Los Angeles, satisfying Nicolas Winding Refn’s desire to shoot another movie in the City of Angels (an itch he’s wanted to scratch since shooting 2011’s Drive).

Elle Fanning Set to Lead Nicolas Winding Refn's 'The Neon Demon'

7 January 2015 8:03 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

At one time, Carey Mulligan was set to reteam with her Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn for I Walk the Dead. However, a fair amount of time has passed since then, and the project is now known as The Neon Demon with Mulligan no longer in the lead role. But The Wrap now reports that a new star has been found for the project. Super 8 and Maleficent star Elle Fanning will take the role of n aspiring model who is caught in a world of beauty and demise. Refn calls the project a horror film, but this likely won't be just an average genre project, especially since Refn also wrote the script himself with Mary Laws. More below! On casting Fanning in the lead role, Refn says, "Elle Fanning is a super cool wonder woman and I look forward to going on a terrifying trip with her into The Neon Demon. »

Elle Fanning joins Refn-directed horror 'The Neon Demon': 5 reasons we're intrigued

6 January 2015 6:52 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A lot of people (read: most people) were left cold by "Drive" director Nicholas Winding Refn's 2013 head-scratcher "Only God Forgives," which is understandable: his second Ryan Gosling collaboration was baffling, queasy, bizarre and occasionally infuriating. But it was also bold and compelling in spots, and so aggressively weird that it felt like a daring next step for a rising director who likely had his pick of mainstream studio projects after the success of "Drive." For his next film - the arrestingly-titled horror movie "The Neon Demon" - Refn will continue marching to the beat of his own drummer alongside new leading lady Elle Fanning, who herself has made some fairly interesting choices recently with films like Sofia Coppola's "Somewhere," Sally Potter's "Ginger & Rosa" and the Joe Albany biopic "Low Down" opposite John Hawkes. Here are five reasons I'm intrigued by the Danish auteur's latest project. 1. Refn is made for the horror genre. »

Elle Fanning In Talks to Lead Nicolas Winding Refn's Horror Film The Neon Demon

6 January 2015 4:11 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Though Elle Fanning had roles in movies like The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Somewhere in the late 2000s, she didn't deliver her first breakout performance until she appeared in J.J. Abrams' 2011 movie Super 8. Since then she's balanced huge movies (last year's Maleficent being the biggest yet) with a nice selection of smaller films, and now she has a chance to meet in the middle for a really interesting project with one of the industry's most fascinating directors.

The Wrap reports that Fanning is in negotiations to lead Nicolas Winding Refn's female-driven horror film The Neon Demon. She'd play "an aspiring model caught in a world of beauty and demise," which sounds very much like the kind of ethereal, moody plot we've come to expect from Refn these days. The director of Drive spoke about the genesis of this project a few months ago:

Elle Fanning to star in Nicolas Winding Refn’s latest The Neon Demon

6 January 2015 2:20 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After many false starts and delays, it looks like Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive, Only God Forgives) has finally got the wheels moving on his latest project, The Neon Demon.

Last autumn it was announced that Cliff Martinez would provide the score and cinematographer Philippe Le Sourd (The Grandmaster) would photograph the film for him. Now it seems that Refn has begun casting, with the director taking to Twitter to announce the news that Maleficent star Elle Fanning has come aboard the picture in the lead role that Carey Mulligan (Drive) was circling at one point.

No plot information is available just yet, but The Neon Demon has been described as “a horror film about vicious beauty” set in Los Angeles.
