Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2018: #22. Paolo Sorrentino’s Loro

Harry Dean Stanton, ‘Big Love,’ ‘Twin Peaks’ Star, Dies at 91

Harry Dean Stanton, ‘Big Love,’ ‘Twin Peaks’ Star, Dies at 91
Harry Dean Stanton, the actor with a gaunt, bedraggled look who labored in virtual obscurity for decades until a series of roles increased his visibility, including his breakthrough in Wim Wenders’ “Paris, Texas,” died of natural causes Friday in Los Angeles. He was 91.

The actor was also known for his roles in “Twin Peaks,” “Big Love,” “Pretty in Pink” and “Repo Man.”

He had a high-profile role as manipulative cult leader Roman Grant on HBO polygamy drama “Big Love,” which ran from 2006-11, and recently appeared as Carl Rodd in the “Twin Peaks” revival on Showtime.

His most recent film, “Lucky,” about an atheist who comes to terms with his own mortality, is set to be released by Magnolia on Sept. 29.

‘Lean on Pete’ Review: Andrew Haigh Loses His Grip in Handsome Equestrian Odyssey

Leaving one’s comfort zone is seldom easy. When it comes to the world of filmmaking it’s a fact that might apply to directors more than others in the business. Credit should always be given to those brave (or maybe foolhardy) enough to do so. This is especially true when considering location, more so when it comes to somewhere like the United States, a difficulty even further magnified comes to that nation’s countryside. Indeed, for every Paris, Texas there is at least one This Must Be The Place. Andrew Haigh, whose films to this point have been drenched in the authenticity of his British midlands locales, might have fallen victim to this particular juju and gotten tipsy on all that rural iconography. Indeed, large portions of his latest film, Lean on Pete, while exquisitely photographed, are devoted to admiring those stunning vistas, but you might be left wondering what happened to the plot.

The Young Pope Season 1 Review

Five episodes were provided to us prior to broadcast.

Whether religious or otherwise, HBO’s latest miniseries The Young Pope will provoke a reaction out of you. Silly, sensational, stylistic and quite often sublimely sacrilegious, writer/director Paolo Sorrentino’s daring, astounding, contemporary, deeply erratic-but-defiantly bold television program is the type of devilish, tongue-in-cheek dramedy that’ll either become your latest unholy addiction or the fiendish destain of your local church gatherings. Maybe it’ll be both? It certainly won’t be neither. It’ll for sure be controversial though, and it’ll most definitely be discussed, both with praise and scorn. But God help you if you don’t have fun watching its ferocious temptations come ablaze.

Bless me, Father, for I have sinned. The Young Pope might be one of the most scandalously marvelous original television programs of the new year and I gave into the seduction. It’s splashy,

The Young Pope review – fantastically anxiety-inducing viewing for lapsed Catholics

Praise the Lord, this millefeuille of madnesses is finally here. And don’t let the flip-flops fool you – Jude Law’s Pius Xiii is brutal as he sets about restoring the church to its former glory

Start the Te Deum and crank up the volume – The Young Pope (Sky Atlantic) is finally here. Oscar-winning film director Paolo Sorrentino (Il Divo, Youth, This Must Be the Place, The Great Beauty) has turned to the small screen to unspool the story of Pius Xiii, a fortysomething newly elected pontiff whom the cardinals believe will be their “photogenic puppet”. But Pius Xiii (Jude Law) was born Lenny Belardo of Brooklyn and raised from the age of eight by nuns – specifically, Sister Mary – in an orphanage after his hippy parents abandoned him there and took off, as hippies do, without a backward glance.

This is not a backstory that produces puppets. Or progressives. Though

Cannes archives: Screen's Jury Grid 2011 - winners and losers
As Cannes approaches, Screen recalls what came top (and bottom) of our Jury Grid in 2011 - a year that included The Artist, Drive and a wave of controversy from Lars Von Trier.

In annual tradition, Screen’s illustrious jury of international critics delivered their verdict on the films in Competition at Cannes 2011 - the year that the Palme d’Or went to Terrence Malick for his experimental drama The Tree of Life.

The film marked the elusive Us auteur’s first return to the festival since winning best director for Days of Heaven in 1978.

But Screen’s jury was not as impressed. While The Tree of Life scored a respectable 2.8 out of 4, top marks went to atmospheric Turkish crime drama Once Upon a Time in Anatolia by Nuri Bilge Ceylan, with a score of 3.3.

The film was Ceylan’s fourth in Competition at Cannes, and tied for the Grand Jury Prize with Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne’s [link

Juliette Binoche and Lou de Laâge Lead U.S. Trailer for ‘The Wait’

If Clouds of Sils Maria didn’t completely satisfy your desire for a movie where Juliette Binoche is secluded with another woman in a beautiful European location, the feature-directing debut of Piero Messina (assistant director on This Must Be the Place and The Great Beauty) should land right on the radar. That picture, The Wait (or L’Attesa), will hit the U.S. this spring, and what’s seen in its domestic trailer echoes Olivier Assayas‘ atmospheric and mysterious film in many ways — certain visual overlaps are actually so strong as to be a bit jarring — though reviews for this particular effort were a bit more reserved.

Our own review, written in Venice, expressed frustrations. Said we, “Visually there’s a lot to salivate over in this beautifully designed, almost compulsively artful picture. It’s not just the land, water, the vivid expanse of Sicily that provides a constantly stunning backdrop to the proceedings.
