‘Baby Driver’ Review

11 hours ago | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Ansel Elgort, Lily James, Kevin Space, John Hamm, Jamie Foxx | Written and Directed by Edgar Wright

Edgar Wright’s return to American moviemaking is a more earnest and coherent foray than 2010’s Scott Pilgrim, and it’s a blast of pure positive energy after the relatively dour The World’s End. It opens with the eponymous Baby (Ansel Elgort) rocking in his car to The John Spencer Blues Explosion, and it never stops dancing.

Baby is a guy with a permanent Tony Manero swagger. He’s under the wing of gangster boss Doc (Kevin Spacey), who’s both a mentor and gaoler. But Baby has almost paid off his debt and he’s approaching the “one last job” cliché, after which he hopes to hit the road and leave his Atlanta life behind.

Then Baby meets a beautiful waitress, Debora (Lily James). They quickly fall in love. However, the freeway out of the crime world is not clear. Doc needs Baby for yet another last job, working alongside the hyper-macho Buddy (John Hamm) and his scheming girlfriend Darling (Eiza Gonzalez), and the batshit crazy Bats (Jamie Foxx).

Can Baby finish his getaway driver stint and find freedom and a future with Debora? Or is he on a road to oblivion?

Life is a playlist for Baby. A childhood accident left him with tinnitus, and now he drowns out the whining through the power of the iPod, wearing earbuds 23 hours a day and moving to the thrum of the music. (He even samples real-world conversations and mixes them into bad hip-hop.) Wright’s penchant for rhythmic editing has reached its natural zenith, and it’s exhilarating.  The British auteur has compiled a soundtrack – and frankly a narrative brevity – of which Tarantino can only dream. And it’s not just the music but the sound design, which is astonishingly detailed and well-choreographed, whether it’s the percussive crack of gunfire, the sad ring of tinnitus, or the intimate singing of wine glasses.

The marketing may have overtones of classic car capers like Sam Peckinpah’s The Getaway or Walter Hill’s The Driver, but really Baby Driver is a mashup of the last few decades of modern action movies. It takes in the muscular physicality and mute cool of the ‘70s; the efficiency and the gaudy aesthetic of the ‘80s and ‘90s; and in its hero shaped by formative tragedy, even includes some of the comic book sensibility of the new century. It also feels like the greatest Grand Theft Auto movie never made. (If only Baby could learn from GTA that sometimes the best way to evade the cops is to stay still until the heat is off.)

Elgort is charming and tragic in a way that he totally wasn’t in The Fault in Our Stars, and he has a great chemistry with James, who pulls off blue collar Georgian with effortless aplomb. In supporting roles, Spacey brings gravitas and grades of grey to his deadpan mobster, while Foxx is genuinely funny and menacing.

But Hamm is the real psychotic of the troupe. Unlike Bats, Buddy comes in the guise of a friend, before finally actualising his rage and cruelty. It’s disappointing that the final showdown descends into a mindless macho wrestle, but the storytelling is movingly redeemed in the epilogue.

As ever, Wright is constantly imaginative in deploying his action beats and setpieces. For him, it’s not enough to give us a scuzzy warehouse gun deal, so he delivers it as if a group of bankers are being presented with a fine dining experience. Wright gleefully toys with our expectations throughout, whether it means building to the ultimate car chase, only to show us a foot race; giving us musical intros we think we know but we don’t; or inverting the mentor role by making the kid the carer.

A very welcome stem of morality runs through the movie. It is made abundantly – perhaps excessively – clear that Baby is a boy with a good heart, a million miles from the French Connection-type antihero. Yet, ever the optimist, Wright’s fable is as much a reflection of the countercultural mood of its time as any film from the Nixon era. He is right-on when he proposes that real heroism in the modern age is in decency, accountability and humility – an implicit indictment, perhaps, of today’s prevailing political bleakness.

What a rush this movie is, and what a work of authorship. Employing style in the service of soulfulness, Baby Driver is like Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive shot through with the sensibility of a Hollywood musical. It’s absolutely an Edgar Wright joint and it’s an absolute joy, and if it isn’t on my end-of-year best-of list then I’ll eat my driving gloves.

Baby Driver is out in cinemas on 28th June 2017. »

More Cannes Winners: Diane Kruger to Become the New Isabelle Huppert + Best Director Coppola Oscar Chances?

20 June 2017 8:05 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'In the Fade' with Diane Kruger: Fatih Akin's German-language Avenging Woman drama may give its star the chance to become next awards season Isabelle Huppert. Diane Kruger: 2017–2018 awards season's Isabelle Huppert? The 2003 Cannes Film Festival's Female Revelation Chopard Trophy winner, Diane Kruger was Cannes' 2017 Best Actress winner for Fatih Akin's In the Fade / Aus dem Nichts. If Akin's German drama finds a U.S. distributor before the end of the year, Kruger could theoretically become the Isabelle Huppert of the 2017–2018 awards season – that is, in case the former does become a U.S. critics favorite while we stretch things a bit regarding the Kruger-Huppert commonalities. Just a bit, as both are European-born Best Actress Cannes winners who have been around for a while (in Huppert's case, for quite a while). Perhaps most importantly, like Huppert in Paul Verhoeven's Elle, Kruger plays a woman out for revenge in In the Fade. Diane Kruger-Isabelle Huppert 'differences' There is, however, one key difference between the two characters: in Elle, Huppert wants to avenge her own rape; in In the Fade, Kruger wants to avenge the death of her Turkish husband (Numan Acar) and their son (Rafael Santana) at the hands of white supremacist terrorists. Another key difference, this time about the Kruger-Huppert Cannes Film Festival connection: although Isabelle Huppert became a U.S. critics favorite – and later a Best Actress Oscar nominee – for her performance in Elle, her (unanimous) Best Actress Cannes win was for another movie, Michael Haneke's The Piano Teacher / La pianiste back in 2001. At that time, Huppert also became a U.S. critics favorite (winning Best Actress honors in San Diego and San Francisco; a runner-up in Los Angeles and New York), but, perhaps because of the psychological drama's sexually charged nature, she failed to receive a matching Oscar nod. Last year's Cannes Best Actress, by the way, was Jaclyn Jose for Brillante Mendoza's Philippine drama Ma' Rosa. Huppert had been in contention as well, as Elle was in the running for the Palme d'Or. Diane Kruger Best Actress Oscar nomination chances? A Best Actress nomination for Diane Kruger at the German Academy Awards (a.k.a. Lolas) – for her first German-language starring role – is all but guaranteed. Curiously, that would be her first. As for a Best Actress Oscar nod, that's less certain. For starters, unlike the mostly well-reviewed Elle, In the Fade has sharply divided critics. The Hollywood Reporter, for one, summarized Akin's film as a “thriller made riveting by an emotional performance from Diane Kruger,” while The Guardian's Peter Bradshaw called it a “mediocre revenge drama” with “a not particularly good” star turn. Besides, since the year 2000 just one “individual” Best Actress Cannes winner has gone on to receive an Oscar nomination for the same performance: Rooney Mara*, who, though one of the two leads in Todd Haynes' Carol (2011), was shortlisted in the Oscars' Best Supporting Actress category so as not to compete with her co-star and eventual Best Actress nominee Cate Blanchett. Then there's the special case of Penélope Cruz; the 2006 Best Actress Oscar nominee – for Pedro Almodóvar's Volver – was a Cannes winner as part of that family comedy-drama ensemble†. And finally, despite their Cannes Best Actress win for performances in (at least partly) English-language films, no less than seven other actresses have failed to be shortlisted for the Academy Awards this century. Björk, Dancer in the Dark (2000). Maggie Cheung, Clean (2004). Hanna Laslo, Free Zone (2005). Charlotte Gainsbourg, Antichrist (2009). Juliette Binoche, Certified Copy (2010). Kirsten Dunst, Melancholia (2011). Julianne Moore, Maps to the Stars (2014). Coincidentally, that same year Moore starred in Still Alice, which eventually earned her the Best Actress Oscar. Warner Bros. will be distributing In the Fade in Germany later this year. Regarding the Oscars, whether late in 2017 or late in 2018, seems like it would be helpful if Diane Kruger got a hold of Isabelle Huppert's – and/or Marion Cotillard's and Jean Dujardin's – U.S.-based awards season publicists. * Rooney Mara shared the 2011 Cannes Film Festival Best Actress Award with Emmanuelle Bercot for My King / Mon roi. † Also in the Cannes-winning Volver ensemble: Carmen Maura, Lola Dueñas, Blanca Portillo, Chus Lampreave, and Yohana Cobo. 'The Beguiled' trailer: Colin Farrell cast in the old Clint Eastwood role in Sofia Coppola's readaptation of Civil War-set, lust & circumstance drama. Sofia Coppola ends Cannes female drought About 13 years ago, Sofia Coppola became the first American woman to be shortlisted for the Best Director Academy Award – for the Tokyo-set drama Lost in Translation, starring Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson. Coppola eventually lost in that category to Peter Jackson for the blockbuster The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, but she did take home that year's Best Original Screenplay Oscar statuette. There haven't been any other Oscar nominations since, but her father-daughter drama Somewhere, toplining Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning, was the controversial Golden Lion winner at the 2010 Venice Film Festival. This year, Coppola has become only the second woman to win the Cannes Film Festival's Best Director Award – for The Beguiled, an American Civil War-set drama based on Thomas P. Cullinan's 1966 novel of the same name (originally published as A Painted Devil). With shades of Rumer Godden's Black Narcissus, The Beguiled follows a wounded Union soldier as he finds refuge at a girls' boarding school in Virginia. Sexual tension and assorted forms of pathological behavior ensue. Tenuous Cannes-Oscar Best Director connection From 2000 to 2016, 20 filmmakers† have taken home the Cannes Film Festival's Best Director Award. Of these, only four have gone on to receive matching Best Director Oscar nominations – but no wins: David Lynch, Mulholland Dr. (2001). Alejandro González Iñárritu, Babel (2006). Julian Schnabel, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly (2007). Bennett Miller, Foxcatcher (2014). Four other Cannes Best Director winners were bypassed by the Academy even though their movies featured – at least a sizable chunk of – English-language dialogue: Joel Coen, The Man Who Wasn't There§ (2001). Paul Thomas Anderson, Punch-Drunk Love (2002). Gus Van Sant, Elephant (2004). Nicolas Winding Refn, Drive (2011). In other words, a Best Director Cannes Film Festival win is no guarantee of a Best Director Academy Award nomination. Ultimately, Sofia Coppola's chances of an Oscar nod in the Best Director category depend on how well The Beguiled is received among Los Angeles and New York film circles, and how commercially successful – for an “arthouse movie” – it turns out to be. † During that period, there were three Cannes Film Festival Best Director ties: 2001: Joel Coen for The Man Who Wasn't There§ & David Lynch for Mulholland Dr. 2002: Im Kwon-taek for Painted Fire & Paul Thomas Anderson for Punch-Drunk Love. 2016: Cristian Mungiu for Graduation & Olivier Assayas for Personal Shopper. Both films opened in the U.S. in spring 2017 and may thus be eligible for the upcoming awards season. § Ethan Coen co-directed The Man Who Wasn't There, but didn't receive credit in that capacity. 'The Beguiled' with Nicole Kidman. The Best Actress Oscar winner ('The Hours,' 2002) had two movies in the Cannes Film Festival's Official Competition; the other one was 'The Killing of the Secret Deer,' also with Colin Farrell. Moreover, Kidman was the recipient of Cannes' special 70th Anniversary Prize. 'Sly' & 'elegant' Also adapted by Sofia Coppola, The Beguiled will be distributed in the U.S. by Oscar veteran Focus Features (Brokeback Mountain, The Danish Girl). The film has generally received positive notices – e.g., “sly” and “elegant” in the words of Time magazine's Stephanie Zacharek – and could well become a strong awards season contender in various categories. The cast includes The Killing of a Sacred Deer actors Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell, in addition to Kirsten Dunst (the star of Coppola's Marie Antoinette), Somewhere actress Elle Fanning, Oona Laurence, Addison Riecke, Angourie Rice, and Emma Howard. As an aside, Cullinan's novel also served as the basis for Don Siegel's The Beguiled (1971), a Southern Gothic effort adapted by Irene Kamp and former Hollywood Ten member Albert Maltz. In the cast of what turned out to be a major box office flop: Clint Eastwood, Geraldine Page, Elizabeth Hartman, and Jo Ann Harris. Women directors at Cannes & the Oscars For the record, Soviet filmmaker Yuliya Solntseva was the Cannes Film Festival's first Best Director winner, for The Story of the Flaming Years back in 1961. The only woman to have directed a Palme d'Or winner is Jane Campion, for The Piano (1993). Early in 1994, Campion became the second woman to be shortlisted for an Academy Award in the Best Director category. The first one was Lina Wertmüller for Seven Beauties (1976). 'A Gentle Night' & 'Montparnasse Bienvenue' Qiu Yang's short film Palme d'Or winner A Gentle Night should be automatically eligible for the 2018 Academy Awards. But competition, as usual, will be fierce. In the last decade, the only short film Palme d'Or winner to have received an Oscar nomination is Juanjo Giménez Peña's Timecode (2016), in the Best Live Action Short Film category.

Kanye West: 40 Years of Fire -- The Ultimate Birthday Playlist!

8 June 2017 9:15 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Wake up, Mr. West. It's your birthday!

On "No More Parties in L.A." off The Life of Pablo, Kanye West describes himself as "a 38-year-old 8-year-old," which is maybe a perfect summation of the qualities that have made the 40-year-old rapper such an enigma: a larger-than-life icon who has cultivated a persona that draws as much infamy as it does reverence, with a head-spinning number of acclaimed tracks to show for it.

Somehow, as Kanye has gotten older, his almost youthful sense for defiance and creativity have created work that has only gotten more experimental, more groundbreaking, and with each new album, inspired a new crop of artists of hip hop and of music in general.

Carey Mulligan to Topline and Produce Film About Vietnam War Reporter Kate Webb

1 June 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Carey Mulligan in “Drive”: FilmDistrict

Carey Mulligan has booked her next role. The Oscar-nominated actress will topline “On the Other Side,” a drama about the experiences of real-life Vietnam war correspondent Kate Webb. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mulligan is also set to produce the film, which will begin production in spring 2018.

“On the Other Side” will see Mulligan portray Webb, “a trailblazing journalist for Upi [United Press International] who would pave the way for all the female war correspondents that came after her,” THR details. The film is based on Webb’s book “On the Other Side: 23 Days with the Vietcong,” an autobiographical account of the three weeks she was held in captivity.

Topic, a First Look Media entertainment studio, will co-produce and finance the film. Also producing are Picture FilmsMargot Hand (Reed Morano’s “Meadowland”) and Ebm Productions’ Edet Belzberg (“Children Underground”). Annie Marter and Adam Pincus are overseeing the project for Topic. No word on a writer or director yet.

“I’m so excited to bring Kate Webb’s remarkable story to the screen,” Mulligan said in a statement. “Her integrity, curiosity about the unknown, and tenacity set her apart from many other journalists of her time and ultimately saved her life. In a world of increasing division, I can’t think of a more relevant character to portray today — someone who’s very survival depended on her desire to understand the other side of the story, to obtain the truth, and to report it faithfully.”

Mulligan’s breakout project was Lone Scherfig’s “An Education,” in which she played Jenny Mellor, an intelligent but naive student embarking on an affair with an older man. The actress received an Academy Award nod and a BAFTA award for the role. Her recent credits include Sarah Gavron’s women’s rights drama “Suffragette,” “Far From the Madding Crowd,” and “Inside Llewyn Davis.”

You can catch Mulligan next in Dee Rees’ “Mudbound,” which follows two families — one black, one white — in the post-wwii South. The film premiered at Sundance earlier this year, where Netflix acquired it for $12.5 million. It is expected to hit theaters this fall. Mulligan will also star as Di Kip Glaspie in “Collateral,” a BBC miniseries helmed by S.J. Clarkson (“Jessica Jones”), currently in pre-production.

“When will [the film industry] catch up with the fact that [women-centric] films do well? It’s just like what Cate Blanchett said at the Oscars. The hunger for female-driven stories is there. You just have to make the films,” Mulligan told Women and Hollywood while promoting “Suffragette” in 2015. “This shock over how these films do so well is a bit tired now. Jennifer Lawrence can open movies like any male star.”

Carey Mulligan to Topline and Produce Film About Vietnam War Reporter Kate Webb was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Cannes: Predicting This Year’s Palme d’Or Winner and Other Awards

27 May 2017 12:52 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s crunch time. All 19 competition films in this year’s Cannes Film Festival have been seen and scrutinized, and now jury president Pedro Almodovar — along with Jessica Chastain, Maren Ade, Will Smith, Agnes Jaoui, Park Chan-wook, Paolo Sorrentino, Fan Bingbing and Gabriel Yared — have the next day to argue amongst themselves over which title is most deserving of the Palme d’Or, among other prizes.

Every year, predicting the jury’s favorites is something of a fool’s errand, fraught with inconsistencies and unknowns: Who but the most gifted mind-reader, for example, can imagine how the Fresh Prince might groove to a Naomi Kawase film? Who foresaw last year’s jury shutting out critics’ darling “Toni Erdmann?” But it’s all in the game, so with a strict warning not to place any monetary bets on my say-so alone, here are my best guesses for tomorrow’s awards.

Five mood boosting assignments culled from showbiz anniversaries today. Try these exercizes at home won't you, and report back? Nobody does but I'm dying to hear stories on how it went!

May 22nd 

2011 The 64th Cannes Film Festival closed with Christopher Honore's sorta musical The Beloved starring Ludivine Sagnier and Catherine Deneuve. Terence Malick's The Tree of Life won the Palme d'Or, Nicolas Winding Refn was Best Director for Drive and Kristen Dunst took Best Actress for Melancholia, and Jean Dujardin won Best Actor for the Artist only to repeat the win at the Oscars several months later.

In The Tree of Life's honor today: perform a very monologue alone in nature about your mother and father. If you don't have nature near you, say it to a plant.

With filming expected to begin later this month on The Strangers 2, the first official casting details for the sequel have been revealed.

Deadline reports that Christina Hendricks (Drive, Mad Men), Bailee Madison (The Night Before Halloween, Good Witch) and Lewis Pullman (Aftermath) have joined the cast of The Strangers 2, which will be directed by Johannes Roberts (The Other Side of the Door) from a screenplay that was worked on by Bryan Bertino (writer/director of 2008's The Strangers) and Ben Ketai.

Character details for the trio of actors have yet to be revealed, but this follow-up to 2008's The Strangers will take place in a trailer park, and when we recently asked producer Trevor Macy if The Strangers 2 will see the return of the three masked killers from the original movie, he said, "I think that is safe to say."

Blade Runner 2049 Posters And Trailer Tease!

5 May 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Alien isn't the only classic Ridley Scott sci-fi movie getting a sequel this year. Blade Runner 2049 comes out this October, sequel to the 1982 classic starring Harrison Ford. Old man Ford returns as Rick Deckard (so, not a Replicant, then?), with Ryan Gosling joining the franchise as a new blade runner. The cast also includes the return of Edward James Olmos as Gaff, as well as new notable cast-members Dave Bautista, Jared Leto, and Robin Wright. Unlike Alien: Covenant, Ridley Scott is not back in the director's chair, replaced by the very talented Denis Villeneuve (Sicario, Arrival). 

We now not only have the first two official posters for the film, but also a tease for the official trailer that offers more footage in a quicker time-frame than the first teaser trailer for the film.

Brian De Palma is set to direct “Domino,” the anticipated thriller written by “Kon-Tiki” scribe Norwegian Petter Skavland with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (“Game of Thrones”) and Christina Hendricks (“Drive”) on board to topline.

Lars von Trier Keeps His Nicolas Winding Refn Feud Alive, Calls Him ‘An Opportunist In An Unpleasant Way’

Another day, another new development in the feud between Danish auteurs Lars von Trier and Nicolas Winding Refn. The two filmmakers used to be friends, but a wedge was driven between them when von Trier’s controversial “Melancholia” press conference at Cannes led Refn to tell the press that the former was “getting old and his comedy routine is a bit tiresome.” The two have been trading jabs ever since, with Refn even claiming at Cannes last year that von Trier tried to sleep with his wife.

During an interview with Danish magazine Soundvenue, von Trier couldn’t resist making a Refn diss. In between talking about his new film “The House That Jack Built” and his opinion on directors like David Lynch and the Coen Brothers, von Trier makes it known that he finds »

Oscar Isaac might finally break through with the Academy in 2017

18 April 2017 7:07 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

It seems like every year there’s a reason to revisit Oscar Isaac and the work that he’s done so far. This year, he may actually get that elusive first Academy Award nomination if things break the right way, but regardless of that, he remains an incredibly exciting actor. Oscar wise (no pun intended), he seems likeliest to contend with George Clooney’s directorial outing Suburbicon, though he also will be seen in a few days in what previously was seen as an awards player in The Promise. Throw in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and he’s an in demand actor, to say the least. As such, another repeat tribute to the man is certainly in order. Isaac deserves it, that’s for sure. This is how I would rank his ten best performances so far: 10. Robin Hood 9. The Two Faces of January 8. In Secret 7. Mojave 6. Star Wars »

Judd Apatow and Kevin Smith: Filmmakers most overdue their first Oscar nomination

14 April 2017 10:04 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Continuing on with a yearly series I like to do on those deserving of Academy Award wins or nominations, it’s time to turn attention to filmmakers. Actors and actresses are the sexier group, but writers and directors are the backbone of the industry. There are plenty who have never been cited by the Academy, so that will be the focus today. I’ll be running down ten filmmakers who I feel are due a nomination. In a handful of cases, they’ll be more comedic storytellers, since Oscar voters can often overlook them. That’s a real shame in my mind, but that could be a piece for another day. Anyway, you’ll see them below, and obviously know that your own mileage may vary. So, without further delay, here goes nothing… Here now are the ten writers and/or directors most due for their first Oscar nomination: 10. Kevin Smith – Hear me out. »

Friday brings us the release of The Fate of the Furious, the eighth film in The Fast & The Furious series. Thus, there could be no better time to look back and rank the previous works of one of the films most notable craftsmen, a man whose name is legendary. I speak of course of First Assistant Director Frank Capra III.

Capra III is the grandson of director Frank Capra, a Hollywood legend whose work includes It Happened One Night, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, and It’s a Wonderful Life. How did that pedigree fare two generations removed? This exhaustive look at Mr. Capra III’s 1st Ad career will tell the tale.
