Partners in Crime | 2014 Tiff Review

1 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Something Scandalous: Teenage Anxiety as a Reflection of Culture

In many ways, Taiwanese director Jung-chi Chang’s sophomore feature, Partners in Crime, is very much like the American teen thrillers of the late ‘90s. Its thematic preoccupation moral judgments, perspective and repressed desires reiterates—coincidentally—the sort of social admonitory fluff that might have featured Jennifer Love Hewitt and Freddie Prinze Jr. As such, it’s far more intriguing as a cultural talking point than as an actual film, saying something about art as a reflection of a fluid social climate despite embodying mediocrity.

The premise is simple: three very different teenage boys—Huang, the shy one; Yeh, the tough guy; and Lin, the techie geek—happen upon the body of a classmate in an alleyway. It’s clear that she fell from five stories above but no one is able to discern whether she was murdered or if she committed suicide. »

Tracks director John Curran on Mia Wasikowska as Robyn Davidson: "She was pretty immediate about her enthusiasm." Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

John Curran's astute and tender Tracks stars Mia Wasikowska as Robyn Davidson with Adam Driver as photographer Rick Smolan and Rainer Bock as camel rancher Kurt Posel. Bock miraculously combines his roles in Michael Haneke's The White Ribbon, Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds and Christian Petzold's Dreileben: Beats Being Dead and Barbara, into an Outback brute able to compete in attention with the growling beasts.

In New York, Curran and I discussed Wasikowska coming to him after Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive "in a state she needed to work through", an unrealised F Scott Fitzgerald's The Beautiful And The Damned project with Keira Knightley, The Wizard Of Oz, Stardust Memories, basic survival and basic relationships.

Things Aren’t Going So Swimmingly In First Set Photos For By The Sea

15 September 2014 3:27 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Angelina Jolie’s latest directorial effort, By The Sea, entered production last week and Entertainment Weekly have served up a batch of photos from the set along with the first plot details.

Set during the 1970s in France, the film stars Jolie as Vanessa, a former dancer who has grown distant with her long-term husband Roland (Brad Pitt). After travelling the country together, though, the pair grow attached to the residents of a quaint seaside town that subsequently make them look at their own relationship from a different perspective.

In a statement provided to EW, the actress-cum-director spoke of her fondness for the 1970s, and how the era and its liberating context is integral to the story of By The Sea.

“I chose to set By the Sea in the 1970s, not only because it is a colourful and alluring era, but because it removes many of the distractions of »

Variety Critics Pick the Best Films of Venice, Telluride and Toronto

Birdman

Even when his choice of material has been suspect, Alejandro G. (formerly Gonzalez) Inarritu has never given us reason to doubt him as one of the most purely gifted filmmakers of his generation. For him, no less than for Michael Keaton, this ferociously inventive plunge into the corroded soul of American celebrity represents a career-reigniting comeback; for that wizardly cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, it’s the latest in a steady stream of digital long-take miracles, like “Black Swan” as directed by Max Ophuls. (Venice, Telluride, New York)

“From What Is Before”

The extreme length is inseparable from the power and conviction of Lav Diaz’s historical epic about the devastation of a small Filipino barrio amid the political and military unrest of the early 1970s. As a slow-burning study of social decay, this winner of Locarno’s Golden Leopard prize is both a thematic companion piece to Michael Haneke »

First By The Sea Images Reveal Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt as a Married Couple

15 September 2014 11:13 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Newlyweds Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are revealed as a not-so-happily-married couple onscreen in the very first By the Sea images from their new film.  Jolie wrote, produces, and is directing the feature, which takes place in 1970s France and revolves around a marriage that’s collapsing on itself.  Jolie plays a former dancer and Pitt plays an American writer, and the story finds the disenchanted couple growing closer together in a quiet seaside town as they meet its inhabitants and begin sharing stories.  Cinematographer Christian Berger (The White Ribbon) is shooting the film using mostly natural light, and the supporting cast includes Niels Arestrup (War Horse) and Richard Bohringer (The Cook, the Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover). Check out the first By the Sea images after the jump, along with an explanation from Jolie as to why she chose to set the film in the 1970s.  The pic »

First Look: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt swept away in romantic drama 'By the Sea'

15 September 2014 10:17 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

“But no man moved me till the tide / 
Went past my simple shoe /And past my apron and my belt /
And past my bodice too / And made as he would eat me up / 
As wholly as a dew…”

Whether or not this poem by Emily Dickinson, published under the title By the Sea, served as inspiration for Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s new film of the same name, the spirit seems to match up with its story of a woman caught in an undertow of passion and rejuvenation while visiting a seaside village with her husband.

Goodnight Mommy | 2014 Tiff Review

15 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Mom Without a Face: Franz’s Debut a Mesmerizing Slice of Psychological Horror

Once you’re made aware that Goodnight Mommy is the directorial debut of Veronika Franz, partner to and writer of the works of Ulrich Seidl, that delightfully perverse purveyor of Austrian social dysfunction, you’ll know to expect something kind of twisted and bizarre. Franz certainly delivers with an eerie portrait of identical twin horror that will eventually rank as one of the more notable titles in the slim subgenre. Effectively grotesque and downright chilling by the time it spits out its final frames, Franz unleashes her own brand of sinister familial interactions that proves to surpass even Seidl’s cynical worldview.

In the isolated Austrian countryside, nine-year-old twins Lukas and Elias (Lukas and Elias Schwarz) live alone with their mother (Susanne Wuest). Recently, she’s undergone cosmetic surgery, her face completely bandaged as she attempts to »

Toronto Film Review: ‘From What Is Before’

5 September 2014 10:46 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“These are cursed times,” a man notes toward the end of “From What Is Before,” and the full weight and meaning of those words come powerfully into focus across all five-and-a-half hours of Lav Diaz’s hauntingly beautiful new picture, which chronicles the gradual decline of a small coastal barrio in the Philippines in the final days before president Ferdinand Marcos imposed martial law in 1972. — another stark, black-and-white drama about mysterious acts of evil befalling a fragile community — this endlessly patient and contemplative work will court a smaller audience than Diaz’s Cannes-premiered international breakthrough, “Norte, the End of History,” but should exert a strong pull on viewers willing to stick it out. Following Locarno (where the film won the Golden Leopard) and Toronto, fests will continue to feel the Lav.

The latest effort from a slow-cinema auteur known for his epic running times, “From What Is Before” is a »

Julia Roberts joins The Secret in Their Eyes remake

5 September 2014 2:12 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Julia Roberts is to star in the remake of Argentine foreign language film The Secret in Their Eyes.

She joins Chiwetel Ejiofor and Gwyneth Paltrow, who signed up to the film earlier this year.

Captain Phillips writer Billy Ray, who will also direct the film, adapted the script from the original crime thriller before rewriting specifically for Roberts, according to The Wrap.

The film will focus on Ejiofor's former MI5 official who heads to Boston, Massachusetts to aid a team of FBI agents investigating an unsolved murder.

The original movie was made in 2009 by Argentine director Juan José Campanella, who also co-wrote the script.

The Secret in Their Eyes claimed the Best Foreign Language Film prize at the 2010 Academy Awards, beating Ajami, The Milk of Sorrow, A Prophet and The White Ribbon.

The film is to begin production in Boston later this year. »

Julia Roberts joins Billy Ray's remake of Oscar winner 'The Secret in Their Eyes'

4 September 2014 4:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

You might recall an Argentinian film from a few years back called "The Secret in Their Eyes." It was a significant player in the awards season in that it bested both "The White Ribbon" and "A Prophet" in the Best Foreign Film Category, and ever since, Hollywood has been keen on an English remake. Now, the project has landed a high profile female lead with an eye toward sales in Toronto: Julia Roberts. Juan José Campanella's original film told the story of a federal agent and the murder/rape case he and his partner, as well as a female judge, investigated 25 years before. It builds to a pretty stunning third act revelation that certainly played a major hand in the film's reception by Academy voters, as well as its value as a remake commodity. Now with Roberts, it's sure to take off on the sales market up north. Billy Ray ("Shattered Glass, »
