The Face of an Angel movie review: fiction is stronger than truth

8 hours ago | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A contemplative film pondering the nature of the difference between reality and fiction, one with resonance beyond the true-crime story it’s kinda sorta about. I’m “biast” (pro): mostly love Michael Winterbottom’s movies

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

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

Let’s be perfectly clear: The Face of an Angel is most definitely not the story of the murder of British student Meredith Kercher, who was killed in Perugia, Italy, in 2007, or the story of her roommate, American student Amanda Knox, who was tried and convicted of the crime along with her then boyfriend. (And then they were acquitted on appeal. And now that appeal might get overturned. It’s not over yet.)

Well, it is that story. But it isn’t, either. It’s both and neither at the same time. »

Exclusive 1:1 Interview: Insurgent Star Theo James

16 March 2015 3:21 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Theo James is a not only a pretty handsome fellow, he is also a talented actor that can handle a whole lot of action and more. While his past work in Underworld: Awakening and the Divergent series found the actor in daring situations, he continues to take on different types of characters as well. You can find Mr. James in The Inbetweeners Movie, the hit series Downtown Abbey as well as the series Golden Boy. And of course you can catch him in the latest of The Divergent Series »

Paradigm Talent Agency Signs Icelandic Helmer Baldvin Z (Exclusive)

12 March 2015 5:21 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Paris — Underscoring its ambition to tap into the growing Nordic filmmakers pool, Paradigm talent agency has signed Baldvin Z, an up-and-coming Nordic helmer whose sophomore feature “Life in a Fishbowl” repped Iceland in the foreign-language Oscar race.

On top of becoming Iceland’s highest-grossing local movie in 2014, “Life in a Fishbowl” won a record 12 Edda Awards (Iceland’s top film honor). The movie even surpassed Baltasar Kormákur’s “The Deep,” which won 11 Edda nods in 2013, and outearned all Hollywood movies, including “Guardians of the Galaxy,” at the Icelandic box office.

Set in pre-recession Iceland, the multilayered drama follows three characters leading double lives: a struggling single mother, an ex-footballer fast-tracking in the banking world and a troubled writer who has turned into a full-time drunk.

“Life in a Fishbowl” has already sparked interest to remake it a “True Detective”-inspired series that would introduce a new cast each season.

Theo James drops out of Underworld sequel Next Generation

10 March 2015 8:47 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Theo James will not star in Underworld: Next Generation.

It was reported last year that the fifth Underworld movie would focus on James's vampire character David, who was introduced in 2012's Underworld: Awakening.

But James, who reprises his role as Four in this month's Insurgent, told Digital Spy that he is now unlikely to return for the sequel.

"No, they have something in the works, but my involvement in it is... I think it's going be very difficult to do that with these [Divergent] movies, and my other commitments," James said.

Kate Beckinsale, who has played Selena in all four of the Underworld movies to date, is also expected to be absent from the fifth instalment, although writer-producer Len Wiseman recently hinted otherwise.

James will begin shooting the final Divergent sequel, Allegiant, this summer, while his upcoming films in 2015 include crime thriller London Fields with Johnny Depp, and drama The Secret Scripture with Rooney Mara. »
