The Heart of Blankness: Close-Up on Alexander Zeldovich's "Target"

23 December 2016 6:41 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Close-Up is a column that spotlights films now playing on Mubi. Alexander Zeldovich's Target (2011) is playing exclusively December 16, 2016 - January 14, 2017 in the United States.All utopias are alike; each dystopia is dystopian in its own way. But is it a utopia or dystopia we are talking about here? In Alexander Zeldovich’s Target, Russia of the near future is prosperous and comfortably numb: energy sources for export still abound, heavy trucks rush along the Guangzhou–Paris highway replenishing the treasury with toll money, and sleek skyscrapers of Moscow symbolize the country’s welfare in stone, steel and concrete. Victor, the Minister of Natural Resource– “king of the mountain,” as he calls himself—has it all:a large, hi-tech apartment, a Chinese biographer and appropriately spiritless facial features. He is the perfect picture of a man who has made it in a land of bureaucratic capitalism. The film’s other dramatis personae »

’The Lost City of Z’ Trailer: Charlie Hunnam Chases Adventure in James Gray’s Latest

22 December 2016 7:05 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In 2013, James Gray’s film “The Immigrant” premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and was then unceremoniously dumped in theaters by The Weinstein Company a year later, albeit to mostly positive reception. Now, Gray has returned with a new film “The Lost City of Z,” about British explorer Percy Fawcett (played by Charlie Hunnam) who, in 1925, disappeared with his son in the Amazon while looking for an ancient lost city. Based on David Grann’s 2009 book by the same name, Gray describes the film as David Lean, but with a “slightly more hallucinogenic feel. Because [the protagonist] went to the jungle and sorta went mad.” Watch a trailer for the film below.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie review: reparo movens ad imaginem

17 November 2016 2:22 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take…

Forget about magical creatures: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them could use some help finding itself, and in figuring out who its protagonist is. I’m “biast” (pro): love the Harry Potter saga, love most of the movies

I’m “biast” (con): not a fan of Eddie Redmayne

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Forget about magical creatures: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them could use some help finding itself. I can’t figure out what this movie is about. Worse, I don’t think director David Yates or screenwriter J.K Rowling even know what their movie is about. It’s barely even about fantastic beasts and where to find them, except to the degree that wizard naturalist Newt Scamander accidentally lets a few escape from his mobile collection lab–research library–menagerie in 1926 New York City and »

A24 Buys Robert Pattinson’s Crime Drama ‘Good Time’ (Exclusive)

27 October 2016 2:22 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A24 has acquired North American rights to “Good Time,” a caper film with Robert Pattinson, Variety has learned.

The film follows a bank robber’s race to evade the police dragnet that threatens to send him behind bars. Josh and Benny Safdie directed the movie from a screenplay by Josh Safdie and Ronald Bronstein. “Good Time” also stars Jennifer Jason-Leigh and Barkhad Abdi.

The Safdie brothers are well known in the indie film community for their work on “Go Get Some Rosemary” and “Heaven Knows What.” Pattinson shot to fame as the brooding vampire in the “Twilight” films. Since accelerating the heart rates of teen girls the world over, he’s used his heartthrob status to get backing for edgier fare, working with David Cronenberg on “Map to the Stars” and “Cosmopolis,” and appearing in the upcoming James Gray drama “Lost City of Z.”

A24 is currently fielding Oscar buzz for “Moonlight, »

Benoît Jacquot Takes on Don DeLillo in Trailer for ‘Never Ever’ Starring Mathieu Amalric

13 September 2016 10:29 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If the reception to Ewan McGregor’s American Pastoral has shown us anything, it’s this: those who adapt one of the great living authors would be best-advised to go small or, at the very least, head into their endeavor with a bit of experience. Benoît Jacquot is doing both with a big-screen take on Don DeLillo‘s slim and, in all honesty, little-loved 2001 novel The Body Artist. It’d previously been in the hands of Luca Guadagnino, who’d, at various points, cast the likes of Isabelle Huppert, Sigourney Weaver, Denis Lavant, and David Cronenberg, the one man who’s already taken a DeLillo text to the big screen. (Game 6 doesn’t quite count, though it’s a Cosmopolis first draft nevertheless worth seeking out.)

Now titled Never Ever (À jamais in its native tongue), it’s arriving under his supervision, with the none-too-small help of Mathieu Amalric and, »

Watch The Trailer For Benoit Jacquot’s Don DeLillo Adaptation ‘Never Ever’ Starring Mathieu Amalric

13 September 2016 9:35 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

 

Although he’s one of the great post-modernist novelists — or perhaps because of that — Don DeLillo’s work has mostly resisted adaptation. The sole one of his books to reach the screen until now was “Cosmopolis,” in the form of David Cronenberg’s disappointing translation, with the rest of his work being too dense, or too ambitious, to bring for the screen.

But a number of filmmakers have, over the years, been interested in making DeLillo’s 2001 book “The Body Artist” into a film — “A Bigger Splash” director Luca Guadagnino nearly made a version with Isabelle Huppert a few years back.

Robert Pattinson to Headline the Zellner Brothers’ Western ‘Damsel,’ Their Followup to ‘Kumiko’

13 July 2016 1:57 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Team Bunzo hasn’t had much to celebrate of late, with the Zellner Brothers’ “Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter” now a distant enough memory for bunny- and/or Fargo-obsessed fans to wonder what’s next. David and Nathan will soon be back with “Damsel,” however, and per a new report from The Film Stage, the Western is said to have found its lead in Robert Pattinson. Mia Wasikowska, the actor’s “Map to the Stars” co-star, is reportedly in talks to join as well.

Much like his “Twilight” screen partner/former flame Kristen Stewart, Pattinson has found a new niche in the art-house world over the last few years, with films like “Cosmopolis” and “The Rover” surely testing the limits of his fanbase. No word on whether “Damsel” will be as extreme as those earlier projects, »

The Kids Are Alright: How Ya Stars Have Become The Unlikely Saviors Of American Indie Film

28 June 2016 10:18 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Our national nightmare is over: After more than a decade of dystopian futures, obtuse love triangles, and weak Charli Xcx singles, Hollywood’s flash-in-the-pan love affair with Ya film adaptations has finally run its course. You can feel it in the air, and you can see it in the dwindling box office returns. The climactic installments of “The Maze Runner” and “The Divergent Series” are still on the horizon, and an unusually promising adaptation of John Green’s “Looking for Alaska” continues to percolate in pre-production, but bodies tend to wriggle for a little while after they’re officially pronounced dead. The fact of the matter is that Voldemort has been vanquished, the people of District 12 have overthrown The Capitol, and Bella Swan has stopped pouting. There will always be movies made for the tween audience, but make no mistake: The Ya world as we know it has come to an end. »

Chucky’s back and better than ever… Mezco Toyz presents their newest Chucky doll based on his likeness in the first Child’s Play movie. Also: Wizard World and Crypt TV’s eight-city video showcase, Mondo’s Cronenberg vinyls, the Screamfest 2016 announcement, and over 10 photos from Shortwave.

Photos of Mezco Toyz’s New Chucky Doll: From Mezco Toyz: “Unlike the scarred and battle-damaged look Chucky normally bears (people have tried to destroy him in six films so far), this version represents the cleaner, earlier Chucky. His trademark outfit is un-slashed, his face is not yet mauled.

Just as he did in his films, Chucky has lots to say from his trademark “My name is Chucky” to far more sinister phrases.

The star of the Child’S Play films, Chucky stands fifteen inches tall and features real cloth Good Guys clothing, eleven points of articulation, his trademark orange hair and realistic glass-like eyes. »

Cannes archives: Screen's Jury Grid 2012 - winners and losers

4 May 2016 11:00 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

As Cannes approaches, Screen casts its eye back at the winners and losers of 2012 according to our jury of critics.

Screen International’s jury of international critics has long been a strong indicator as to what will take the top prizes at the Cannes Film Festival – and 2012 was no different.

Sharing the Jury Grid’s top spot in 2012 were Cristian Mungiu’s Romanian drama Beyond the Hills and Michael Haneke’s heart-breaking Amour.

Both films scored 3.3 out of 4 and Amour went away with the festival’s coveted Palme d’Or.

Amour was Haneke’s second film to win the Cannes top prize, after 2009’s chilling pre-war drama The White Ribbon.

Beyond the Hills also performed strongly, winning awards for best screenplay and best actress for its two leading ladies Cristina Flutur and Cosmina Stratan. Director Mungiu has another shot at the Palme d’Or this year with Graduation (Bacalaureat).

It was a year for ties, with »

Terry Gilliam’s Quixotic attempt to make The Man Who Killed Don Quixote is finally set to be rewarded...

People were beginning to think Terry Gilliam was tilting at windmills in his quest to film The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, but it looks like that impossible dream will finally be dreamed.

The Brazil director’s now mythical vision will be financed by Alfama FilmsPaulo Branco, who made Cosmopolis and Mysteries Of Lisbon. The film will be made on an $18.2 million budget. The latest attempt was delayed by actor John Hurt's diagnosis of pancreatic cancer early last year. Hurt was cleared for work by his doctors in October, but may not be involved in the project any more. Jack O'Connell, however, is in line for a role.

The story of the making of The Man Who Killed Don Quixote of course is a great story in itself. »
