12 August 2010 1:11 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Anchor Bay Entertainment presents this psychological thriller on Blu-ray™ and DVD starting August 24th.

The 2010 Los Angeles Film Festival Shifts Direction

19 July 2010 6:09 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Above: La pivellina.

The recently wrapped Los Angeles Film Festival succeeded in reinventing itself—a new location in "revitalized" downtown with a new artistic director, David Ansen (the thirty-year veteran critic of Newsweek)—but it produced mixed results. Gone were the kind of established names of world cinema favored by previous artistic director Rachel Rosen, whose final program last year boasted rare works by Wang Bing, Pere Portabella, Miguel Gomes, and many others. Claire Denis was perhaps Laff's only recognized master this year (outside of revivals), and herWhite Material is already secured for distribution.

Instead, Laff emphasized emerging filmmakers and attempted to strike a balance between "popular" and "art house" fare, offering an accessible selection of films from around the globe. Ansen's most interesting choices were the smaller films he championed, such as the Georgian character study Street Days, which he personally introduced and then sat through after some minor projection problems occurred, »

The Vampire Diaries 1.11 "Bloodlines" Recap

21 January 2010 11:54 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Omg!!!!! Talk about being in rehab and having your first hit after two months of soberdom!!!! The Vampire Diaries is Back, People!!!!!!! We got a lot of mythology thrown at us tonight and things are getting deep! I didn't jump out the window tonight, but I damn near jumped in front of a car flying down the street!

The Road Less Traveled…

We pick up right where we left off with Elena hanging upside down in her car as the creepy hooded figure comes for her. As soon as he reaches in the car and Elena screams, he super speeds away! What?!?!??!??!

But as soon as Elena (and myself) calms down, Damon super speeds to the car, scaring the crap out of Elena (and myself). He helps her out the car and checks to see if she has suffered any major injuries, which she hasn't. Elena then murmurs, "I look like her… »

Berlin's Generation lineup complete

13 January 2010 6:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Cologne, Germany -- "Youth in Revolt," Miguel Arteta's romantic comedy starring Michael Cera and Portia Doubleday, is one of the higher profile titles screening at Generation -- the Berlin Film Festival's youth cinema sidebar -- but the title could be used for the 2010 lineup as a whole. For its 33rd edition, Generation has decided to stir things up, mixing genres and styles, big names and unknowns.

Acclaimed Indian filmmaker Dev Benegal will open Generation's main 14plus competition with his latest off-Bollywood production "Road Movie." "Alamar," a docu-drama from Mexican director Pedro Gonzalez-Rubio kicks off the Generation Kplus section of younger-skewing titles.

No longer a ghetto for kid flicks, Generation has established itself as a strong brand and platform for launching films in its own right -- a fact illustrated by the ten world premieres this year. These range from "Last of the Line" from Finnish directors Anastasia Lapsui and Markku Lehmuskallio, »

The Notable Films of 2010: Part Ten

8 January 2010 11:22 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

St. Trinian's II: The Legend of Fritton's Gold

Opens: 2010

Cast: Colin Firth, Rupert Everett, David Tennant, Gemma Arterton, Talulah Riley

Director: Oliver Parker, Barnaby Thompson

Summary: A rollercoaster-style treasure hunt for the legendary Fritton’s Gold ensues as the feisty and ever-resourceful schoolgirls of St Trinian’s face their most fearsome establishment rivals yet - the villainous Pomfrey and his sidekicks from the women-hating secret society known as AD1.

Analysis: While it didn't travel much beyond the UK, 2007's reboot of the "St Trinian's" franchise nearly doubled its £7 million production budget in sales in the UK alone - making it one of the top grossing independent British films of the past decade. Reviews were decidedly mixed but generally pretty weak at the time, so the greenlighting of a sequel surprised quite a few.

Despite a critical drubbing, the core audience of young British teenage girls seemed to be satisfied by »

The Notable Films of 2010: Part Nine

5 January 2010 3:10 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Shanghai

Opens: 2010

Cast: John Cusack, Gong Li, Ken Watanabe, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Chow Yun-Fat

Director: Mikael Hafstrom

Summary: In the months leading up to the bombing of Pearl Harbor, an American man arrives in Shanghai to find his friend recently murdered. In investigating his friend's death, he stumbles upon a secret the United States government has been keeping and falls in love in the process.

Analysis: After being granted permission to shoot in the Chinese city, the $10 million production found its permit quickly being revoked by the Government who expressed concerns about the script. The result is Bangkok and the United Kingdom standing in for the real Shanghai which seems kind of against the entire point.

Cusack himself has emphatically endorsed the project in interviews, calling it a "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity", but being stuck at the cash-strapped Weinstein Company means that its release plans are unsure beyond a vague promise of a limited bow around Easter. »

The Observer interview: Rupert Friend

1 January 2010 6:46 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

He's been feted for his appearances with Johnny Depp and Michelle Pfeiffer and is soon to open in the West End. Yet the media only want to discuss his relationship with Keira Knightley. No wonder he is wary says Elizabeth Day

Rupert Friend already knows how this interview is going to be written. "You start off with a humorous anecdote about meeting me," he says, as if reciting a shopping list. "Then you end on something that neatly refers back to the beginning. It's so boring." He sits back in his chair, a small smile on his face.

It seems fair to say that Friend, 28, has developed a fairly healthy contempt for journalists. He tells me that he refuses to read any newspapers because they are saturated with meaningless celebrity trivia and he seems to believe most of us who work for them are hopelessly ignorant. At one point, when »
