Review. "Logan Lucky"—Steven Soderbergh Remains in Fine Form

21 August 2017 5:53 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

There has always been something rather Hawksian about Steven Soderbergh. Speaking with the French magazine Positif in 1993, Soderbergh actually brought up Howard Hawks, a venerable icon of Hollywood cinema, stating, “The career I would like is John Huston’s or Howard Hawks’s. You know, very varied, many different subjects.” It’s true Soderbergh and Hawks diverge greatly in terms of form—the latter is straightforward, classically composed, no frills; the former is stylish, spontaneous, technically innovative—but their recurring subject matter, with a little stretching, isn’t far removed. Take the focus on working professionals in Traffic (2000), the Ocean’s films (2001, ‘04, ‘07), The Girlfriend Experience (2009), and Magic Mike (2012); though not exactly traditional Hawksian occupations, there is a firm appreciation for a job to do and to be done well. More than that, though, what connects Howard Hawks and Steven Soderbergh is their uniform consistency, not necessarily in terms of year-after-year quantity, »

Review: Logan Lucky Races for the Big Score, Finishing Above Average

18 August 2017 1:15 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

How lucky are we? I suppose that depends upon how you feel about the work of director Steven Soderbergh. One of the most deliberately eclectic and diverse filmmakers in the history of Hollywood, Soderbergh has seen fit to shift gears abruptly from mainstream big-budget potboiler (Ocean's 11, Haywire, King of the Hill, Out of Sight) to artsy fartsy experimental throughout his entire career (Schizopolis, Bubble, Full Frontal), letting the two blend occasionally, just to keep things even more interesting (Magic Mike, Traffic, The Limey). Since his 1989 indie film world sensation sex, lies and videotape, he's never stopped. Even his much ballyhooed retirement from feature filmmaking resulted in him directing every episode of two seasons of the turn of the century medical television series, The...

Why Steven Soderbergh’s ‘Solaris’ Sets the Standard for Movie Remakes

10 August 2017 9:59 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“I could tell you what’s happening, but I don’t know if that’d really tell you what’s happening.”

Steven Soderbergh could have done anything he wanted after the hugely successful trifecta of “Erin Brockovich,” “Traffic,” and “Ocean’s Eleven.” What he did was remake Andrei Tarkovsky’s “Solaris,” perhaps the headiest science-fiction film ever made — and one that didn’t necessarily seem suited to his sensibilities. The film has its defenders 15 years later — Barry Jenkins expressed his love for it just last week — but is rarely mentioned in discussions of the versatile filmmaker’s best.

Maybe that’s because it’s something of an outlier in his already varied filmography. Soderbergh has dabbled in genre pictures as often as any other filmmaker not specifically thought of as a genre director, »

Has Wonder Woman opened the floodgates for female action heroes?

7 August 2017 1:59 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The release of Charlize Theron spy movie Atomic Blonde is the first test of whether we are heading into a new era of kick-ass equality

If Jean-Luc Godard really meant it when he said “All you need to make a movie is a girl and a gun”, how come he never made a movie with just a girl and a gun? Vivre Sa Vie might just about scrape through, but Godard basically took it as read that there would be a guy in the mix.

Hollywood, on the other hand, has started to take Godard’s maxim literally. We have had countless “girl and gun” movies recently, and virtually none have stuck. It’s as though the studios looked at Bourne, Bond, John Wick and all the other franchised-up action heroes and all had the same bright idea: “Make the hero a woman!” Often that becomes a woman wearing next to nothing, »

Exclusive: Stream David Holmes’ “Original Score Medley” From The ‘Logan Lucky’ Soundtrack

2 August 2017 8:21 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Musician and composer David Holmes doesn’t do a lot of soundtracks, but when Steven Soderbergh rings up, he takes the call. The “Ocean’s Eleven” trilogy, “Haywire,” and “Out Of Sight” have all carried Holmes’ distinct sound, and this month’s heist comedy “Logan Lucky” finds the duo back together. And today, we have an exclusive cut from the soundtrack.

The Female Action Hero

31 July 2017 1:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe on female action heroes…

With the impending UK release of Atomic Blonde, it now seems a good time to consider the female action hero. You may think this ‘phenomena’ only stretches back to around the time Sigourney Weaver donned a mecha-suit, but it goes back further. There has certainly been a significant rise in the last two decades in female lead action movies, but still, particularly on the big screen, they remain the exception to the rule. For whatever reason I suppose they’ve generally not sold as successfully as the male counterparts. Maybe the atypical grunting, stoic action caveman suits the male species more, but perhaps there’s still an inherent sexism. Indeed, when the ladies have it their own action piece there tends to be a level of exploitation (Atomic Blonde has all the hallmarks of an explo film going by the trailers, but in a »

From Almodóvar’s parade to the Security of Hollywood: Antonio Banderas’ cinematic journey

4 July 2017 5:15 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

Antonio Banderas is one of the more recognisable faces (and certainly one of the most recognisable voices) in Hollywood. His presence in front of the camera is tangible, and the variety of roles he enjoys now is testament to a versatility few could have expected of the man who came to Tinsel Town barely speaking a word of English.

He has been a masked legend (twice, one furry – the other not so), played with another kind of mask (horrifcally so – see the final note), appeared opposite the likes of Sir Anthony Hopkins, Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Angelina Jolie and Spongebob Squarepants. He’s done it all, and now a new film of his arrives on DVD this week.

Security sees the actor as an ex-Special Forces vet taking a job as a security guard. On his first night he rescues a young girl fleeing from a hijacked convey, »

Channing Tatum Tries To Pull Off A Heist In First Trailer For 'Logan Lucky'

30 May 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Steven Soderbergh announced his intention to retire from filmmaking in 2012. Side Effects was to be his final big-screen movie and HBO's Behind the Candelabra would be his final directing effort. Soon thereafter, however, he decided to help produce the period medical show The Knick for Cinemax and ended up directing all 20 episodes over the next couple of years. That experience rekindled his love of filmmaking, whether it be on the big or small screen.  Early in 2016, Soderbergh was lured back into big-screen filmmaking by a project titled Lucky Logan, with frequent collaborator Channing Tatum (Haywire, Magic Mike, Side Effects) attached to star. Later that year, we learned it would be a heist movie with a very intriguing cast.  Lucky Logan follows two brothers...

Channing Tatum, Adam Driver and a Crazed Daniel Craig Team Up in ‘Logan Lucky’ Trailer (Watch)

28 May 2017 3:41 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Steven Soderbergh returns to the big screen with a gaggle of wacky characters in the first trailer for “Logan Lucky.”

That includes Channing Tatum who is reuniting with the director after working with him on “Haywire,” “Side Effects,” and “Magic Mike.” The movie following sibling Jimmy, (Tatum) Mellie (Riley Keough), and Clyde Logan (Adam Driver) who set out to execute an elaborate robbery during the Coca-Cola 600 race.

But to do so, they’re going to need some help. That’s where Joe Bang (Daniel Craig) comes in.

“I am in-car-cer-a-ted,” Craig tells Tatum and Driver. “Yeah, we got a plan to get you out.” Tatum responds.

“You Logans must be a simple-minded as people say,” Craig says later in the trailer.

Judging by the trailer alone, Craig’s manic disposition and loud cackle hint a major departure from the even-keeled James Bond that launched him to stardom.

The all-star ensemble cast also includes Seth MacFarlane, »

Unlocked movie review: the spy who broke the female mold

5 May 2017 10:24 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… There’s stuff in this spy thriller that’s fresh, and lots that’s familiar, but Noomi Rapace using her brains and brawn to fight bad guys is a genuine thrill. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m desperate for stories women; love a good spy movie

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

Is “unlock” genuine spook-speak, like the way it’s used in Unlocked: to get useful information out of a suspect during an interrogation? It makes sense, but who knows. Does the CIA actually have agents working as “community embeds,” as Noomi Rapace’s Alice Racine is as Unlocked opens? Cuz that would be authentically insidious: she seems to be a kindly public advocate in a poor London neighborhood, the sort of person you might go to if you were having trouble with your landlord or something, »

23 March 2017 9:43 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Home is where the heart is, and for Paul (Antonio Banderas), it also includes a very sketchy stranger named Jack (Jonathan Rhys Meyers).

As a storm cuts off power to the isolated cabin, the two men begin a jagged game of one-upmanship that will bring at least one tale to an end.

In a previous life, Steven Soderbergh must have been a thief

17 February 2017 10:45 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Behold the first image from Lucky Logan which is Soderbergh's first post-retirement theatrical feature. It's yet another heist picture from a director who is very fond of stories about professional thieves and or elaborately planned ambitious crimes. See also Haywire, Oceans franchise, Out of Sight.

Pictured are Adam Driver and Channing Tatum in the background (why are they barely featuring a star as big as Chan in the first still?) and platinum blonde Daniel Craig in the foreground. They're doing an elaborate heist during a Nascar race. 

Are you excited to welcome Soderbergh back to the movies?  »
