‘Las Elegidas,’ ‘Domestic Animals,’ ‘Franco’s Night’ Selected for San Sebastian’s Europe-Latin America Co-Pro Forum

6 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mexican David Pablos’ “Las Elegidas,” “Domestic Animals,” from Colombia’s Andres Baiz, and “Franco’s Night,” by Bernardo Arellano, also from Mexico, will feature at the San Sebastian Fest’s 3rd Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum.

Event will be energized by a Focus on Canada, organized with Telefilm Canada, which will see 12 Canadian producers attending the Forum.

Rapidly positioning as San Sebastian’s centerpiece industry event – 365 meeting were held in 2012 at the co-pro mart, 461 in 2013 – the Forum runs Sept. 22-24, parallel to San Sebastian’s Films in Progress pix-in-post strand, fest’s other big industry lure..

Select projects will be invited by Cannes Marche du Film and Argentina’s Incaa Film Institute to attend Ventana Sur, which these two entities co-organize, and then Cannes’ Market next May. Projects will compete this year as last for an Egeda Award, granted by the Madrid-based Audiovisual Producers Rights Management Assn., which comes with a $10,000 cash prize. »

Who is Dayani Cristal? review: Gael García Bernal's dangerous journey

25 July 2014 1:46 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Marc Silver; Screenwriter: Mark Monroe; Starring: Gael García Bernal; Running time: 85 mins; Certificate: 12A

Stories of illegal migrants who die crossing the Mexico/Us border are nothing new (with Sin Nombre one of the best among them), but what is surprising is how the tragedy persists because, as this documentary highlights, the system of checks and balances is motivated by border control rather than social conscience. Gael García Bernal follows in the steps of one ill-fated man whose body is found in the Arizona desert, his death chalked up like any other statistic but who is also a pivotal figure in a startling human drama.

At the outset director Marc Silver also risks dehumanising the man by filming his body as it is analysed on site by a forensics team, with the enhanced objectivity that comes from using a Dv camera. Crucially, his face isn't shown until very late in the film, »

First Look: 'True Detective' Director Cary Fukunaga's 'Beasts Of No Nation' Starring Idris Elba

27 June 2014 4:36 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While from a long way out, Idris Elba looked like a no brainer Oscar contender for "Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom," when the film finally arrived to a muted response from critics and audiences, that chatter fell away. But can he get back in the Oscar mix with his next effort? Well, if it's done in time, we think "Beasts Of No Nation" could be both a Best Picture and Best Actor contender, and a pretty fierce first image has dropped today. "Sin Nombre" and "True Detective" director Cary Fukunaga is behind the camera on this one, an adaptation of the novel by Uzodinma Iweala, which follows Agu, a young boy forced to become a child soldier, with Elba playing The Commander who initiates Agu into his army. It's tough material and potentially a powerful story, and certainly the stuff awards seasons are made for. But will it be done in time? »

That shot above pictures Idris Elba in Luther, but below we have the first image of the actor in Beasts of No Nation, the new film from Cary Fukunaga. The director has a couple of features under his belt, the great Sin Nombre and a worth-watching adaptation of Jane Eyre. But it was HBO’s True Detective that made a lot more […]

First Beasts Of No Nation Image Reveals Idris Elba as a Child Soldier Army Commander in Cary Fukunaga’s Drama

27 June 2014 11:43 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Focus Features has unveiled the first Beasts of No Nation image from True Detective director Cary Fukunaga’s upcoming child soldier drama.  Fukunaga also wrote the pic, which is based on author Uzodinma Iweala’s novel of the same name and revolves around a young boy who is forced to join a unit of mercenary fighters when a civil war erupts in his West African country.  Idris Elba, who is also a producer on the film, plays the army’s terrifying commander, and judging by this first-look image he appears to be rather imposing.  Though many may just know Fukunaga as the director of all eight True Detective episodes, his past two features, Jane Eyre and Sin Nombre, have been excellent, and I’m very much looking forward to seeing his passion project Beasts of No Nation realized on the big screen. Hit the jump to take a look at »

Blu-ray Review: Recent TV Releases Include ‘True Detective,’ ‘Masters of Sex’

22 June 2014 12:42 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “Game of Thrones” is over and you’ve already binged “Orange is the New Black,” what are you supposed to do now? There are a few interesting new programs this season – FX’s “Tyrant” & “The Strain,” HBO’s “The Leftovers,” CBS’s “Extant,” and a few more – but it’s also a great time to catch up what you may have missed with new Blu-ray and DVD releases. There are five TV-to-Blu-ray releases this month that might warrant a look.

The top of the pile is also the best program of 2014 to date, a show that has really redefined the year in that it’s already used as a watermark (“Sure, Fargo and The Americans were great but they were no True Detective.”) With fantastic performances from Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, HBO has wasted no time in getting the wildly acclaimed “True Detective” on Blu-ray and DVD a »

Matthew McConaughey Is Open to a 'True Detective' Return

9 June 2014 9:54 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Even though HBO hasn't officially renewed True Detective yet, there is still plenty we know about the seemingly-inevitable Season 2. Season 1 stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson will not be returning as Rust Cohle and Marty Hart, with the season to focus on a completely different case with a new cast of characters. While we wait for any official news from HBO, Matthew McConaughey revealed in a new interview that he signed on to do the show because it was only a one-season commitment, but now he is open to coming back.

When asked if he was always just set to star in one, eight-episode season, Matthew McConaughey revealed he would not have signed on if HBO wanted to lock him in for two or three years.

"That was always how I saw it. One season, eight episodes, a finite beginning, middle and end, goodbye, look forward to watching it. If »

True Detective: Season One DVD Review

9 June 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Cary Jojo Fukunaga

Starring: Woody Harrelson, Matthew McConaughey, Michelle Monahan

Running Time: 480 minutes (8 episodes)

Certificate: 18

Extras:

Chances are if you’ve not seen True Detective, Nic Pizzolatto’s eight-part HBO drama, you’re probably planning on it. Dominating television chat continually since it’s TV debut in February, with high-quality suggestive whispers of The Wire-esque quality, preconceptions were always (and will remain) the biggest obstacle this television show faces, backed up even further by the shared lead performances of Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey – bolstered by a convenient yet wholly well-deserved Oscar win for his performance in Dallas Buyers Club; as Louisianan detectives Martin ‘Marty’ Hart and Rustin ‘Rust’ Cohle, these two ever-capable performers deliver show-stopping turns to rival all work to have come before (yep, even How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days…)

Top Ten Most Exciting Directors Working Today

28 May 2014 9:44 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Quentin Tarantino, during his Cannes Film Festival press conference (watch it here), mentioned an email chain he was a part of where he and some friends discussed what they believed to be the ten most exciting directors working today. Among those listed he said only David Fincher and Richard Linklater where in everyone's top ten, he wasn't sure why Pedro Almodovar wasn't on everyone's list and he also qualified what he believed it meant for a director to be the "most exciting". Here's how he put it: "I think what that means is, you feel that their best work is still in front of them. That's what makes a filmmaker exciting, that's what makes you anticipate a new movie coming out. Because the new movie could be their best one. From this day on that will be the new barometer from which they're judged. We could be wrong, and their »

Hollywood is a Slave to Fukunaga; Hot Helmer Adds Sony’s “The Black Count” to Future Slate

28 April 2014 2:20 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Take a filmmaker that has easily become tinseltown’s hottest commodity with a hit television series (see True Detective) and Hollywood comes calling. To some degree this also happened to have been the case when he broke out at Sundance with Sin Nombre, but this is bigger. While Beasts of No Nation appears to be Cary Fukunaga’s next project and there’ll be tons more added to his future slate, Deadline reports that the talented filmmaker has joined the book to film adaption of The Black Count: Glory, Revolution, Betrayal, And The Real Count of Monte Cristo — a sort of, and don’t quote me here, torrid color-barrier description that will certainly find comparison to 12 Years a Slave but during the dawn of the 19th century, The pic is being packaged by Sony and musician John Legend’s production house.

'True Detective' Director Cary Fukunaga Takes on 'The Black Count'

28 April 2014 1:50 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Cary Fukunaga, who directed all eight episodes of HBO's True Detective, has signed on to write and direct The Black Count, teaming up with musician/producer John Legend's Get Lifted Films production company and Sony Pictures.

The project is an adaptation of Tom Reiss' 2012 Pulizer Prize winning biography The Black Count: Glory, Revolution, Betrayal, And The Real Count of Monte Cristo, which chronicles the life of French Revolution general Thomas-Alexandre Dumas, the father of The Count Of Monte Cristo author Alexandre Dumas. Thomas-Alexandre Dumas was born to a French nobleman and an African slave, who went on to become the highest-ranking non-white soldier to serve in any European army. He was said to be a favorite of Napoleon Bonaparte, and his adventures served as the basis for his son's books such as The Count Of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers.

Who is Dayani Cristal? | Review

23 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Body Talk: Bernal & Silver’s Doc an Empathetic Experiment

A three pronged approach to uncovering the identity of an illegal immigrant’s corpse in the Arizona desert coalesce uneasily for a well-meaning message in Who is Dayani Cristal?, a project created by director Marc Silver and actor Gael Garcia Bernal. While Bernal’s name is an immeasurable asset to getting a project like this out there, his presence is about as equally detrimental to the success of the end result. Reenactments spliced with real time interview coverage get sewn together to varied effect in this depiction of the horrors faced by illegal immigrants due to increasingly difficult sanctions developed by the unfairly xenophobic Us government. Its target audience will assumedly be wholeheartedly in agreement with the filmmakers’ agenda, though with a little luck, this will be seen by those blissfully ignorant of the unfortunate plight of those seeking the chance »

True Detective: how we made the most talked-about TV show of the year

The silent spaces and spooky folk crafts of backwoods Louisiana get as much screen time as Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey in director Cary Fukunaga's murder mystery

More: Fukunaga on filming that tracking shot

If you were looking to name the most talked-about programme on TV right now, you wouldn't have to be an obsessive policeman with a deductive intuition to alight on True Detective. Praise has been lavished on Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey in their roles as Louisiana state detectives Marty Hart and Rust Cohle. The mystery, in which the pair investigate a ritual murder in the bleak wilds of the bayou, has prompted much speculation and theorising. Some of us have even admired the folk crafts (wherever the detectives go they stumble over piles of spooky wooden icons). What binds the serial together, though, and elevates True Detective into truly compelling television is its eerie tone and complex structure. »

How True Detective’s Cinematographer Got These 9 Shots

19 March 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

These days, most post-tv episode reactions lean toward “I can't believe that happened!” rather than “How beautiful was that wide shot!” With True Detective, showrunner Nic Pizzolatto wanted both. So he got Sin Nombre and Jane Eyre director Cary Joji Fukunaga, and also tapped Adam Arkapaw, the Australian cinematographer behind the critically acclaimed crime dramas Animal Kingdom and The Snowtown Murders. It helped that Arkapaw was coming off Jane Campion's Top of the Lake, another transcendent small-screen experience. Shooting True Detective entirely on Kodak film (save for episode four's momentous six-minute-long shot that required digital just to pull off the run time), Fukunaga and Arkapaw unraveled a very cinematic television saga. Behind every hair-brained Yellow King theory, there was consideration for light, color, composition, texture, and camera movement.Just this week, Fukunaga told the Guardian, "Before I even started working on True Detective, I made a point of telling »

Required Reading: Fighting Autism with Disney and Charting Stardom for Lupita Nyong’o

10 March 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The best movie culture writing from around the internet-o-sphere. There will be a quiz later. Just leave a tab open for us, will ya? “Reaching My Autistic Son Through Disney” — This intimate piece from Ron Suskind at The New York Times Magazine may as well have been sponsored by Kleenex. Poignant, personal and vulnerable, it’s a beautiful story told with endless compassion. If you only read one of the links today… “Somewhere it’s always Groundhog Day” — Kristin Thompson shares a letter from Harold Ramis and some thoughts/quibbles with film analysis. “What if Lupita Nyong’o got the same roles as Jennifer Lawrence” — Monika Bartyzel at The Week charts an imaginary, role-diverse future for the newly crowned Oscar winner. A future that feels a little fantastical to those of us who are more cynical. “Thinking as Historical Spectators” — Peter Labuza at To Be Cont’d makes a shrewd case for letting films of the past »

True Detective Season Finale Review: “Form and Void” (Season 1, Episode 8)

9 March 2014 11:27 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It is hard to recall the last time a television series has gripped the cultural consciousness so quickly, spawning memes, a sprawling amount of Internet speculation and commentary, as well as divisive conversations about gender roles on television (check out Emily Nussbaum’s harsh, but terrific piece in The New Yorker for more on that) as much as True Detective. At that rate, a season finale that was anything less than the finest 60 minutes of television would be doomed to succeed. Alas, the last of eight episodes from Nic Pizzolatto’s first anthology is a solid, but not quite shattering hour of television. Nevertheless, it is filled with the key elements that any True Detective viewer would hope for: strong acting, haunting music and art direction, sublime camerawork, unbearable suspense and a smattering of dark humour.

Since its start, True Detective has done so much to thwart our expectations of »
