Cannes 2016: Julieta review

17 May 2016 10:32 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Julieta review: Pedro Almodóvar’s latest examines a tortured woman in modern-day Madrid in a tale of love, loss and ultimately guilt.

Julieta review, conducted at the Cannes Film Festival 2016.

Julieta review

Pedro Almodóvar returns to Cannes with Julieta, one of the few films to have already had a release in its domestic territory (where it has already done quite nicely in terms of box-office). The film tells the story of the title character Julieta Joven (played by both Adriana Ugarte and Emma Suárez), a woman who is about to move from the busy cityscape of Madrid to the a more relaxed environment in Portugal with her new lover Lorenzo (Darío Grandinetti). However, after a chance meeting with a childhood friend of her daughter, Julieta (played in the modern-day by Suárez) immediately changes her mind and opts to remain in Madrid, relocating to her old apartment block which she once shared with her only child, »

The Witch (Robert Eggers)

“We will conquer this wilderness. It will not consume us,” foreshadows our patriarch in the first act of The Witch, a delightfully insane bit of 17th century devilish fun. As if Ingmar Bergman and Ken Russell co-directed Kill ListRobert Eggers’ directorial debut follows a God-fearing Puritan family banished from their settlement in a colonial New England, only to have their deep sense of faith uprooted when our title character has her way with their fate. »

Our Kind of Traitor review – spy thriller without the wow

15 May 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Though solid enough, this John le Carré adaptation has too little tension and too many visual cliches

After the exemplary chill of Tomas Alfredson’s Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and Susanne Bier’s slick, sexy television adaption of The Night Manager, this latest John le Carré adaptation feels a little workmanlike by comparison. The story of an academic (Ewan McGregor) and his wife (Naomie Harris) who are drafted in to broker a deal between a Russian gangster (Stellan Skarsgård, excellent) and British intelligence, the film is solid but rarely achieves the tension for which it is clearly aiming. One of the main problems is the look of the picture. Director Susanna White relies heavily on the cliched teal, orange and acid yellow colour palette that has become a visual shorthand for thrillers in the absence of any more interesting ideas.

10 May 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Canadian distrib Elevation Pictures has inked a multi-year slate co-financing deal with Sebastien Raynaud’s Europe-based investment outfit Anton Corp.

Under the deal, Anton will partner on Elevation’s acquisition slate of around 20-25 pics per year ranging from elevated commercial films to prestige driven titles, including those from its output deals with Black Bear Pictures, Bleeker Street and Bold Films.

The strategic partnership will give Elevation, which is backed by Teddy Schwartzman’s Black Bear Pictures, the muscle to target opportunities to built its slate, which has so far included titles such as “The Imitation Game” and “Room.” Anton is on board to back releases from the indie disturb such as Garry Marshall’s “Mother’s Day,” Garry Ross’ “Free State of Jones,” John Lee Hancock’s “The Founder,” starring Michael Keaton and Oliver Stone’s “Snowden.”

In a Lonely Place (Nicholas Ray)

When a gifted but washed-up screenwriter with a hair-trigger temper—Humphrey Bogart, in a revelatory, vulnerable performance—becomes the prime suspect in a brutal Tinseltown murder, the only person who can supply an alibi for him is a seductive neighbor (Gloria Grahame) with her own troubled past. The emotionally charged In a Lonely Place, freely adapted from a Dorothy B. Hughes thriller, is a brilliant, turbulent mix of suspenseful noir and devastating melodrama, »

Arabian Nights (Miguel Gomes)

In lauding Miguel Gomes‘ three-part, six-and-a-half hour behemoth, it’s perhaps important to consider his background as a critic. Not just in terms of the trilogy’s cinephilic engagement with Rossellini, Alonso, Oliveira, etc.; also in its defiant nature. While it’s easy to assign the trilogy certain humanist and satirical labels from the get-go and just praise these films for following through on them, Gomes continually seeks to mutate and complicate his of age-of-austerity saga. »

Review: Boisterous 'Men & Chicken' Starring Mads Mikkelsen Is Rambunctiously Good

21 April 2016 2:35 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Minutes into the delightfully absurdist "Men & Chicken," we're already laughing at death. A bedridden man we never see on-screen uses his last breath to ask his son Gabriel (David Dencik) where his other son is. We know he's snuffed it soon after thanks to Gabriel's uncontrollable reaction to the smell, which wouldn't be half as hilarious as it is were it not performed by the straight-faced Dencik, known for his solemn characters in pictures like "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" and "A Royal Affair." Not unlike a child stuffing GI Joes inside a house built of Legos, writer/director Anders Thomas Jensen toys with perceptions and expectations of Danish cinema throughout his film. Perhaps it's limited to an outsider's point of view, but the Danes are commonly thought of as a serious, surgical, and brooding bunch, expertly excavating through human nature's dark corners. Jansen's own screenplays, "A Second Chance" and Oscar-winner "In A Better. »

A Whit Stillman Trilogy: Metropolitan, Barcelona, The Last Days of Disco

Over the course of the 1990s, writer-director Whit Stillman made a trilogy of films about the acid tongues and broken hearts of some haplessly erudite young Americans in New York and abroad. Set in the eighties, these films trace the arc of that decade, led by Stillman’s Oscar-nominated debut, Metropolitan, which introduced moviegoers to a strange, endangered species of privileged New Yorker, the “urban haute bourgeoisie. »

‘The Night Manager’s’ David Farr on Writing a Hit Series, Whether There Will Be a Sequel

16 April 2016 12:58 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Although he cut his teeth as a successful playwright and theatre director, 46-year-old David Farr is forging an equally interesting career in film and television. After his teenage assassin story “Hanna” was turned into an action-packed fairytale by Joe Wright in 2011, Farr went behind the camera for last year’s word-of-mouth festival hit “The Ones Below,” a Hitchcockian thriller in which the lives of a young mother-to-be and her partner are turned upside down after a mysterious couple move into the apartment downstairs.

Almost immediately, Farr’s profile was raised by the airing of the BBC/AMC series “The Night Manager,” directed by Danish Oscar winner Susanne Bier and starring Tom Hiddleston in the title role. Based on the 1993 novel by John Le Carré, whose espionage stories have successfully been adapted in such award-winning productions as “The Constant Gardener” (2005) and “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” (2011), “The Night Manager” debuted in the U. »

Gary Oldman in Talks to Play Winston Churchill in ‘Darkest Hour’

14 April 2016 6:38 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Gary Oldman is in talks to play British Prime Minister Winston Churchill in Working Title’s World War II drama “Darkest Hour.”

Joe Wright is directing “Darkest Hour,” derived from Churchill’s phrase to describe the period of World War II between the fall of France in June 1940 and the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union a year later in 1941, when the British Empire stood alone against Nazi Germany and the Axis Powers in Europe. During that period, the United Kingdom was under threat of invasion and bombardment with over 1,500 civilians dying in London alone in a single night from Lufwaffe bombing raids on May 10, 1941.

Churchill became Prime Minister in May 1940, and was under pressure to appease Germany. Three weeks after taking office, a quickly assembled British fleet of more than 800 boats saved more than 335,000 soldiers who had been cut off by the German army at Dunkirk on the French coast. »

Watch: First Trailer for John le Carré Adaptation 'Our Kind of Traitor'

11 April 2016 6:58 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You won't get another opportunity like this." Lionsgate & Roadside Attractions have released the trailer for Our Kind of Traitor, adapted from the John le Carré novel of the same name (other recent John le Carré adaptations include Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and A Most Wanted Man). Starring Ewan McGregor and Naomie Harris, this thriller is about an unsuspecting English couple that get looped into deep Russian mafia trickery while on vacation. Also starring Damian Lewis, Stellan Skarsgård, Jeremy Northam, Alicia von Rittberg and Mark Stanley. Maybe I'm just not a big John le Carré fan, or maybe the scripts get watered down in translation, but these stories all seem a bit bland to me. I'm still curious to check it out. Here's the official Us trailer (+ poster) for Susanna White's Our Kind of Traitor, in high def from Apple: While on holiday in Marrakech, an ordinary English couple, Perry »

'Gotham's Erin Richards joins 'That Good Night'

6 April 2016 9:59 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Principal photography on stage play adaptation starring John Hurt has begun.

Erin Richards (Gotham), Sofia Helin (The Bridge) and Max Brown (Agent Carter) have joined John Hurt in the cast of That Good Night, which has begun principal photography on the Algarve coastline of Portugal and will shoot for five weeks.

Gsp Studios is behind the film adaptation of the late N.J. Crisp’s 1996 stage play of the same name. Gsp Studios International is also handling worldwide sales.

That Good Night, which derives its name from the Dylan Thomas poem, follows Ralph (Hurt), a famed screenwriter coming to terms with his impending death. As he does so, he resolves to attempt two final missions in life; to be reconciled to his long-lost son (Brown), and to ensure he doesn’t become a burden to his wife Anna (Helin) with his slow decline, by hiring a mysterious “visitor” to help him pass painlessly.

Studiocanal Buys Into Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sunny March, Urban Myth, Spain’s Bambu

4 April 2016 2:19 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Cannes – Vivendi’s film-tv contents powerhouse Studiocanal has taken a 20% stake in Benedict Cumberbatch’s production company Sunny March TV and “Atlantis” producer Urban Myth Films, both based out of London, plus a 33% shareholding in Spain’s Bambu Producciones (“Velvet,” “Gran Hotel,” “Refugees”), producer of Netflix’s first original series in Spain.

Announced by Studiocanal chairman-ceo Didier Lupfer Monday at a Studiocanal MipTV press conference, all deals give Studiocanal distribution-sales rights to its new partners’ productions.

Equity stakes near double from five to eight Studiocanal’s portfolio of TV production houses. They also further Vivendi chair Vincent Bollore’s vision of Vivendi as Europe’s foremost contents factory, building up Europe-based talent-driven production partnerships, as well as, it seems, a pan-European pay TV platform network. Studiocanal now has over 100 TV projects in development, Lupfer said at Cannes.
