‘Blunt Talk’ Creator Reveals ‘Star Trek’ Actors He Will Cast, Why He Stopped Watching ‘Game of Thrones’

22 August 2015 3:56 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jonathan Ames was a quintessential New York novelist. In books such as “The Extra Man” and “Wake Up, Sir!” he portrayed what it was like to be young, artistically inclined and maybe crazy in the world’s cultural capital. With the HBO series “Bored to Death,” Ames transitioned from writing prose to writing for television, but kept his New York State of mind–capturing a Brooklyn overrun by able-bodied and idle-handed creative types. But Ames is now a West Coaster, having abandoned New York for Los Angeles, the setting of his new series “Blunt Talk,” which stars Patrick Stewart as a cable. »

New York I Love You: Berman & Pulcini’s Schmaltz Soaked Latest

Nostalgia, especially in large doses, tends to hobble the authenticity of a text, whether in the literary or cinematic realm. On a superficial level, serving as a love letter to a bygone era of 1980s New York, Eleanor Hendricks’ novel Ten Thousand Saints falls under the quirky spigot of directing duo Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini, the team behind the Oscar nominated American Splendor from 2003. In the decade since that critically championed title, they’ve continued with a particular strain of fluffy cornball items. Following a brief assay into studio filmmaking with The Nanny Diaries (2007), they were responsible for a pair of sickly sweet titles headlined by prized performers like Kevin Kline in The Extra Man (2010) and Kristen Wiig in Girl Most Likely (2012). Though their latest venture is slightly more sobering, at least in a notable absence of »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Ten Thousand Saints’

24 January 2015 10:35 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A love letter to a bygone era of New York City, namely the late ‘80s, “Ten Thousand Saints” sees directing duo Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini returning to a more personal approach to filmmaking — or at least as personal as possible when adapting another’s material, in this case the debut novel by author Eleanor Henderson. Part teen romance, part awkward love triangle, part generational-clash portrait, and almost all powered by nostalgia, this warmly conceived dramedy will likely resonate strongest with audiences who have a direct connection to the story’s place and time. Otherwise, there’s not much to suggest a theatrical windfall, and only slightly better odds in ancillary.

The story actually kicks off in 1980 Vermont, on a particularly eventful night for young hero Jude (Henry Kelemen). He’s hit with a double whammy: His no-nonsense mom, Harriet (Julianne Nicholson), has kicked his hippie dad, Les (Ethan Hawke »

A first sampling of Sundance offerings reveals illuminating documentaries and compelling, if not perfect, narratives

A bit of friendly advice to the producers of “Ten Thousand Saints”: Please, please, please get rid of the opening narration in which the protagonist observes that life is like a river. It’s the worst line of dialogue in the whole movie, and it starts the proceedings off with a cringe.

Luckily, the script (by directors Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini, adapting the novel by Eleanor Henderson) gets better from there. After the death of his best friend Teddy (Avan Jogia, also »
