Saudi Ventures in American Entertainment are Promising, But Bigger Changes are Needed (Guest Column)

Sue Obeidi, director of the Hollywood Bureau of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, offers her thoughts on the ramifications of Hollywood becoming more involved in the Saudi Arabian entertainment business.

Next month, after over three decades of going dark, the government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will allow commercial movie theaters to reopen in a move that would be viewed as progressive — if it weren’t the 21st century. AMC Entertainment and the Saudi Arabia have joined in a cinematic venture together, and the kingdom will be investing $500 million in Wme holding company Endeavor. This is part of a larger initiative that the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia is implementing, which will focus on the entertainment industry.

Personally, I have never been a fan of many of the policies coming out of Saudi Arabia, largely due to the devotion I hold for my Islamic faith. It has always been an anchor in my life, as

‘On Body and Soul’ Director Ildikó Enyedi Hasn’t Made a Movie for 18 Years, but Her Comeback Is Causing People to Faint

‘On Body and Soul’ Director Ildikó Enyedi Hasn’t Made a Movie for 18 Years, but Her Comeback Is Causing People to Faint
A love story forged at the least romantic place in the world, a slaughterhouse, “On Body and Soul” is a testament to the grit of its writer-director, first-time Oscar nominee Ildikó Enyedi.

Born in Budapest, the 62-year-old emerged on the international film scene almost 30 years ago, winning the Cannes’ Camera d’Or for her feature debut, “My Twentieth Century” (among the top 10 films of 1989, according to The New York Times). Over the next decade, she made four more films; 1999’s “Simon the Magician” claimed the Special Jury Prize at the Locarno International Film Festival. Then she went 18 years without a release.

“Oh my God, I was constantly, constantly working on projects, and they nearly happened,” she told IndieWire at the Hollywood offices of Netflix, which began streaming “On Body and Soul” last week. Five of her original films were scratched, including a story set in 1930s New York, when scientists

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ could be the third show to win two series prizes at the WGA Awards

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ could be the third show to win two series prizes at the WGA Awards
The Handmaid’s Tale” is forecasted to go home with two trophies at Sunday’s Writers Guild Awards in our latest odds: Best Drama Series and Best New Series. It makes sense that the reigning Emmy, Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice and Producers Guild Award champ is such a heavy favorite — the Elisabeth Moss-starrer never relinquished its lead in either category in our predictions — but it is extremely rare for a freshman series to pull off that WGA double at once.

Since the WGA Awards added the three series categories — Best New Series, Best Drama Series and Best Comedy Series — 12 years ago, only two shows have won Best New Series and either Best Drama Series or Best Comedy Series at the same ceremony: “True Detective” three years ago and “Atlanta” last year. Of the other 10 Best New Series winners, only two were not nominated in their respective genre series race: “Ugly Betty” and “In Treatment.

Trailer Watch: Toni Collette Is Haunted by Her Mother in Sundance Hit “Hereditary”

“Hereditary”

“My mother was a very secretive and private woman,” Annie (Toni Collette) eulogizes in the trailer for “Hereditary.” “She was a very difficult woman, which maybe explains me.”

The strained relationship between Annie and her late mother, Ellen, weighs heavily on everyone in Ari Aster’s feature directorial debut. While Annie muses about her mom’s “private rituals [and] private friends,” her daughter (Milly Shapiro) becomes obsessed with death, and her son (Alex Wolff) starts experiencing intense, inexplicable seizures. Is it possible that Ellen’s ghost is haunting the family? Or did the matriarch pass down some terrible, all too real genetic trait that’s just now expressing itself?

In 2000 Collette received an Oscar nomination for her supporting role in “The Sixth Sense.” Her other credits include “United States of Tara,” “Enough Said,” and “Fun Mom Dinner.” Collette is currently filming “Wanderlust,” a family drama from Netflix and BBC One.

Critics Pick the TV Shows That Get Mental Health Right — IndieWire Survey

Critics Pick the TV Shows That Get Mental Health Right — IndieWire Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is the best TV show — former or current — that handles mental illness well?

Joyce Eng (@joyceeng61), TVGuide.com

Bojack Horseman,” especially Season 4, is almost peerless when it comes to a raw, honest portrayal of mental health. His depression and anxiety aren’t deployed as plot devices like we’ve seen plenty of times elsewhere; they’re just part of him and none of it is rubbed in your face. He’s allowed to be, break down, self-destruct, and the show never offers quick fixes or easy answers. “Stupid Piece of Sh*t” is a brutal depiction, even if you don’t suffer from depression or anxiety,

'Get Shorty': How Elmore Leonard's Showbiz Satire Became a Small-Screen Gem
When the legendary screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz got to Hollywood, he sent a telegram to his friend Ben Hecht back home in New York: "Millions are to be grabbed out here and your only competition is idiots." That's been a fantasy for hustlers ever since – the idea of Hollywood as a motherlode of suckers waiting to be fleeced by the right guy with the right scheme.

On Get Shorty, Miles Daly wants to be that right guy – a Nevada gangster with an Irish accent, bluffing his way into the movie business.

From Gypsy to The Sopranos, what do real psychotherapists think of TV shrinks?

The Sopranos put a mobster through analysis. Now Gypsy is making a psychotherapist the star of the show. Does TV get it right – or is gross malpractice just dramatically inevitable?

This is the age of the fictional psych, instantly canonised in the person of Tony Soprano’s analyst, Jennifer Melfi, beautifully developed by Gabriel Byrne with In Treatment, and given a shonky Netflix-over by Naomi Watts in Gypsy.

When The Sopranos came out, the richness of the territory was astonishing; I sometimes wondered not why it hadn’t much been done before, but why all TV series didn’t do it, why President Josiah Bartlet wasn’t also in therapy, and The Wire’s Stringer Bell, and Breaking Bad’s Walter White. It was such a stunningly obvious way to zoom in and out of character, develop metaphor – it was as if someone had invented a new kind of camera.
