A different dance by Anne-Katrin Titze

Reset directors Alban Teurlai and Thierry Demaizière Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

In Reset (Relève), Thierry Demaizière and Alban Teurlai chronicle the path to the premiere of Benjamin Millepied's first ballet at the Opéra National de Paris in the fall of 2015. We hear composer Nico Muhly and the energetic young conductor Maxime Pascal discuss the quality of a lion's roar and the need for a "more menacing, dangerous piano." Designer for Lady Gaga, Tilda Swinton, Björk, and Scarlett Johansson, Iris van Herpen, whose tutus here are unorthodox, is specific about the colors, wanting "the black less black and the white a very light grey."

Benjamin Millepied: "For American people, Benjamin is a Frenchman …"

Millepied is known as the choreographer for Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan, starring Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Winona Ryder and Vincent Cassel. Vincent Lindon, revolvers; Karl Lagerfeld, un roi seul and Robert Luchini, dit Fabrice on Fabrice Luchini »

Fox set to pay out to unpaid interns after reaching settlement on Black Swan case

13 July 2016 4:03 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Reports suggest landmark five-year legal battle is set to conclude with media giant reimbursing those who have undertaken unpaid work at the company since as far back as 2005

The two interns who won a landmark case against Fox film studio after working unpaid on the set of Black Swan have succeeded in their five-year campaign to push the studio into paying those who had undertaken unpaid work experience at the company, according to Deadline.

Fox, which lost and then appealed a landmark ruling in a lawsuit filed by former interns Alexander Footman and Eric Glatt in 2013, has decided to settle rather than take the case back to court.

Lukewarm Off the Presses: Woolf, Winona, and La Pfeiffer

7 July 2016 4:12 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Things we forgot to talk about but it's never too late.

Do You Love She Loves Me?

Did any of you manage to catch the Broadway livestream of She Loves Me June 30th? It was the first ever of its kind though I've heard no details on how well it performed (i.e. if we'll see more of them). They've extended the availability to rent it until July 10th on Broadway HD. 

The Hours 2: The Return of Virginia Woof

Okay not really. Basically everybody committed suicide or got old in The Hours. But recently we got word that Virginia Woolf is coming back to the big screen  in the adaptation of the play Vita & Virginia which is about Woolf's friendship and affair with another female writer. The most delightful part of this news may be that the play and its screenplay adaptation were both written by the actress Dame Eileen Atkins »

The Ukrainian-born star of Black Swan says she came to the Us on a ‘religious-refugee visa’ and laments that people are allowing themselves to be manipulated

Ted and Black Swan star Mila Kunis has attacked presidential candidate Donald Trump over his anti-immigrant and anti-refugee stance, saying it saddens her.

Kunis, who was born in the Ukrainian city of Chernivtsi and emigrated to the Us as a seven-year-old in 1991, made the comments in an interview with Glamour magazine, in which she also described her parents’ decision to start from scratch in Los Angeles. “They came to America with suitcases and a family of seven and $250, and that’s it.”

14 Films to Watch After Seeing Nicolas Winding Refn’s ‘The Neon Demon’

30 June 2016 11:11 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It’s a common image in cinema: a beautiful, but vulnerable woman entering a cold and unforgiving world, where good bone-structure and talent become dangerously interchangeable. While navigating the leering male gaze and sometimes heartless competition of female peers, she also must do battle with her own insecurities and self-doubts, all of which can be seemingly cured with the miraculous kiss of success. But for some, that success can lead directly to their downfall. Sometimes, the consequences can even be lethal, the adversary too ruthless to be conquered, and the beauty is left to rust in tragic defeat. And sometimes, it’s more painfully simple. They merely want to cut the poor girl’s throat.

The Neon Demon, the spellbinding new film from director Nicolas Winding Refn, is now playing in theaters nationwide. The plot follows Jesse (Elle Fanning) a 16-year-old girl who arrives in Hollywood with dreams of becoming a successful model. »

The Neon Demon review

30 June 2016 7:50 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Published Date  Friday, July 1, 2016 - 06:38

“When a film makes you gag, and you leave the cinema feeling kinda weird, then that’s a sign that it’s working.” Director and Moviedrome presenter Alex Cox was talking about David Cronenberg’s debut feature Shivers when he said those words in the 1990s, but he could have just as easily been talking about Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon.

This is the film, you may recall, that left people wailing and yelling at the screen when it made its debut in Cannes earlier this year. It isn’t difficult to imagine Refn standing off to one side somewhere and smiling at such a seething reaction, because his films are engineered to provoke and prod. You might not like Refn’s movies - which include Bronson, Valhalla Rising, Drive (his most commercial film yet) and 2013‘s Only God Forgives, »

The Current Debate: Seeing and Believing in "The Neon Demon"

29 June 2016 6:11 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Nicolas Winding Refn’s new film, The Neon Demon, has earned both pans and raves, which has started to seem like the inevitable critical response to a new film from Refn—part of the promise that it delivers on, if you will. And, as Justin Chang notes at the Los Angeles Times, if nothing else, The Neon Demon very much delivers on the promise of being a Refn film:Even if you were to somehow miss the elegant “Nwr” monogram in the opening credits, you would be safe in assuming that Nicolas Winding Refn’s latest film is a self-indulgent exercise in style. But what self-indulgence, and what style! A surreal urban fairy tale, “The Neon Demon” unfolds in a murderously debauched corner of the Los Angeles fashion industry, one prowled by predatory beasts, silky-smooth operators and gorgeous blonde vampires on stiletto heels. Languorously paced and literally dressed to kill, the »

See Hollywood’s History of Censorship With Risqué Compilation of Banned Footage

21 June 2016 8:45 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

What was Nsfw (or, more specifically, theaters) nearly a century ago? Look no further than what CineGraphic has dug up: a compilation comprised of footage from an old reel of 35mm nitrate from 1926 that was unearthed at an old movie theater in Pennsylvania. The result is Forbidden Images, a collection of clips that were banned and censored to meet local “moral standard,” featuring a brief clip from Fritz Lang’s Metropolis and short glimpse of Greta Garbo in The Temptress, among many others.

What instantly becomes glaringly apparent is that all of the scenes feature women (shocker!), but no men. This compilation is a look into the historically sexist lens by which many ratings and censorships are governed, from small towns to the MPAA. To this day, women are still exploited for their sexuality and bodies in cinema. Depictions of sexuality are either celebrated, as in the case of Black Swan »

Winona Ryder: from teen rebel to screen mum

18 June 2016 4:04 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

As the 80s star of Beetlejuice and Heathers returns with a plum role on Netflix, we chart her troubled career

Next month sees the arrival of the Netflix’s drama Stranger Things, a much-anticipated supernatural chiller about a missing boy, which pays homage to everything from Twin Peaks to Poltergeist and has been described by Us critics as “looking like the show Steven Spielberg and Stephen King never made”.

It also marks the next, and perhaps most important, stage in Winona Ryder’s return to Hollywood’s spotlight. Now 44, Ryder has spent the past few years slowly rebuilding her career since it imploded in the early years of this century with a conviction for grand theft, shoplifting and vandalism amid rumours of prescription drug addiction. (She was subsequently sentenced to three years probation and ordered to undergo drug counselling.) Since then Ryder has taken a low-key approach to her career. »

As Stacey Snider Ascends at Fox, Hollywood Is in Turnaround

17 June 2016 9:44 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

At the 2014 New York Film Festival premiere of “Gone Girl,” Twentieth Century Fox Film Chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos seemed visibly relieved to have Stacey Snider finally join the studio, after months of speculation that this capable executive would join him from DreamWorks. Now, almost two years later —and after a 25-year career at Fox —the studio has confirmed that Gianopulos’ contract will not be renewed after it expires on June 30, 2017, when he will graduate “upstairs” into an executive role at parent company 21st Century Fox.

This follows a transition for Snider that has not been smooth. While the veteran exec has the right mix of skills to run a studio (and did so at Universal with Ron Meyer), knows how to manage a team of executives, and how to develop, produce, and release movies that are smart and four-quadrant friendly, entering the Fox landscape proved to be a challenge. »
