Top 7 Films So Far in 2010

14 July 2010 7:52 AM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

We start the Top 7. You finish the Top 10.

It’s halfway over. One thing seems to be sure, it’s not just the USA dominating. First the World Cup, now films. I normally don’t do this, but three of my Top 7 Films So Far in 2010 are from overseas. All that reading, all those subtitles, and yet, there they sit. On the top of my list. It’s been a rough summer, but with Christopher Nolan’s Inception starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Joseph Gordon-Levitt opening this weekend, the summer is starting to look better. For this list, The movie had to open by June 30, 2010. That’s right, The Last Airbender can’t qualify (for many reasons, the date only being one of them).

And now let it begin.

Red Carpet Lineup, Foxy Julianne and Berlinale Winners

21 February 2010 9:00 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

With Berlinale wrapped, let's take one last looksie at random celebs working the premieres and photo ops. Part of our irregular red carpet lineup tradition. And then the awardage.

From left to right: I didn't know what Michael Winterbottom looked like, so I've included him here. He's a boyish 48. I think his career is pretty fascinating because it covers so much global ground and differing genre terrain. He's so prolific while still making intelligent films. I'm impatient so prolific works for me. That said, his new noir The Killer Inside Me might be one I'll have to skip. If festival types are so horrified by the violence I'm sure it's more than I can take.

Julianne Moore looking foxy on her way to fifty. She's gone a bit goth here with smoky eyes, black dress and black fingernails. More on her in a bit.

Danish Oscar Submission Terribly Happy to be Remade in English…by the Original Director

15 February 2010 6:31 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Remakes, remakes remakes...but is it a different scenario when the director of an acclaimed foreign film signs on to remake his own movie for English-speaking audiences? That's what's happening with Terribly Happy, the dark, Coen Brothers-flavored Danish film that cleaned up at the major Bodil Awards in 2009 and is Denmark's submission for the Foreign Language Oscar this year. Henrik Ruben Genz will remake his own film in English, giving him an opportunity to play with a bigger budget and take the story in new directions. Gentz was also the co-writer on the first version of the film, which is adapted from the novel of the same name by Erling Jepsen. (Well, the novel is called Frygtelig lykkelig, which is also the untranslated Danish name of the film.) The Us version is being written by Howard Rodman, and producer Carol Polakoff says that this is a chance to approach the »

Terribly Happy: Quirkily Noir

2 February 2010 6:30 AM, PST | | See recent Tribeca Film news »

Terribly Happy (Frygtelig lykkelig), the Danish entry into the Oscar race for Best Foreign Language Film, is opening in New York this Friday. Though writer/director Henrik Ruben Genz did not garner an Oscar nomination for his film (that honor went to Ajami [Israel], El ecreto de sus ojos [Argentina], La teta asustada [Peru], Un Prophète [France], and The White Ribbon [Germany]), it's still a must-see for fans of the noir, the Coen Brothers, or films set in quirky towns that don't take well to outsiders. The film kicks off with Robert (Jakob Cedergren), a cop from Copenhagen, being exiled to service in a small outpost in Jutland, a remote Danish hinterland. From the moment he arrives, the landscape (complete with a life-sucking bog) and the people are forbidding, wary, and just plain odd. As in any good noir thriller, there's a mysterious dame (Lene Maria Christensen), with a thuggish cowboy of »
