James Franco Says He's 'a Little Gay' as He Discusses His Sexuality In New Interview

19 April 2016 9:55 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

James Franco has once again discussed his sexuality in a new interview. Speaking with New York Magazine, the actor describes himself as "a little gay" but clarified that if the definition of gay and straight is who he sleeps with, then he would call himself a "tease." Franco, 38, who has explored gay-themed roles in films including Howl, Milk and I Am Michael, insists there's "overfocusing" when it comes to the media's curiosity with his sexuality. "There is a bit of overfocusing on my sexuality, both by the straight press and the gay press, and so the first question is why do they care? »

Watch: New Trailer for 'Papa: Hemingway in Cuba' Starring Giovanni Ribisi And Minka Kelly

24 March 2016 11:19 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Making a movie about a famous writer is a difficult undertaking for many reasons. But James Ponsoldt somehow managed to avoid most of the pitfalls as such with “The End of the Tour,” last year's winsome, loving ode to David Foster Wallace. Similarly, Bennett Miller erected a commendable testament to Truman Capote back in 2005 with his Philip Seymour Hoffman-starring biopic. There's something to said for films like 2010's noble but erratic “Howl,” which starred James Franco as beat poet Allen Ginsberg, as well as the two big-screen Hunter Thompson adaptations, 1980's "Where the Buffalo Roam" and 1998's "Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas," both of which indulge in the author’s penchant for overkill.  Read More: James Ponsoldt's 'The End Of The Tour' Starring Jason Segel & Jesse Eisenberg So a movie about Ernest Hemingway is going to spark at least a flash of intrigue in any bibliophile. »

Life | DVD Review

8 March 2016 9:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

A troubling hush seems to follow Anton Corbijn’s fourth and least enthusiastically received Life, a snapshot on the short but intensely felt celebrity of actor James Dean revolving around a famed photo shoot for the titular magazine administered by Dennis Stock. Considering the film stars Dane DeHaan and Robert Pattinson in the lead roles, the lukewarm reception of the film seems surprising, beginning with a muted response at the premiere at the 2015 Berlin International Film Festival, where it played as a Special Gala Screening. Based on the film’s marketing and demure DVD release, one would be surprised to note Us distributor Cinedigm collected a titch over one million in box office following a limited theatrical and VOD release in December of 2015.

Following his 2014 John Le Carre adaptation A Man Most Wanted, director Anton Corbijn delves into the life of another desired individual, cherished cinematic icon James Dean with Life. »

Carol movie review: flung out of space

14 January 2016 2:19 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Flawless in every way: sumptuous visually and emotionally. One of the more mature and sophisticated romances the big screen has ever seen. I’m “biast” (pro): adore Cate Blanchett and Todd Haynes

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I first saw Carol at the London Film Festival last October. So, three months ago. And I’ve been terrified to write about it ever since. This happens sometimes with a movie I fall in love with, because I fear that nothing I could say would do it justice, that I would somehow diminish it with words that fail to capture how transcendent it is. I’ve seen the film twice more since — including again just this morning — in the hope that something would inspire me to feel as if I could pin it down in a fair way. »
