Venice Film Review: ‘Angels Wear White’

7 September 2017 2:11 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Exposing the sordid corruption of police and government officials through their incriminating involvement in a child sexual assault case, “Angels Wear White” could give parents of young daughters a cold sweat. Chinese director-producer Vivian Qu’s depiction of the protagonists’ fates can be unflinchingly cruel at times, but the bleak tone is soothed by grace notes such as the protagonists’ fragile beauty and the desolate poetry of its seaside setting.

One of the increasingly rare mainland films to tackle social injustice without skirting around issues that would fall foul of state censorship, the film appears to stake its chances solely in the international arthouse market. The femme-centric topic and its status as the only Chinese entry to Venice’s main competition should give it a boost.

Qu, who produced Diao Yinan’s Berlinale Golden Bear winner “Black Coal, Thin Ice,” made her own directorial debut “Trap Street” in Venice Critics’ Week. Compared to that film, »

Zhao Tao, Liao Fan to Star in Jia Zhangke’s ‘Ash Is Purest White’ (Exclusive)

16 August 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Zhao Tao (“Mountains May Depart”) and Liao Fan (“Black Coal, Thin Ice”) are set to star in Jia Zhangke’s new film, “Ash Is Purest White,” the Chinese auteur’s follow-up to “Mountains May Depart,” which premiered in competition at Cannes. Previously titled “Money & Love,” the new film tells “a story of violent love within a time frame spanning from 2001 to 2017,” said Jia.

France’s MK2 represents “Ash” in international markets and is co-producing via Mk Productions. Other production companies include Shanghai Film Group, Jia’s Xstream Pictures, Huanxi Media Group, Beijing Runjin Investment, and Office Kitano.

“Ash” is Jia’s most ambitious drama to date in terms of scope and scale. An epic love story set against the backdrop of China’s crime underworld, “Ash” opens in 2001, in a poor industrial city in China called Datong, where Qiao, a young dancer, falls in love with Bin, a local mobster. During »

Fox Update: Network Passes On All Remaining Pilots

Fox postponed formal decision on five pilots until after the upfronts. There was very little chance of any of them going at the network, and it’s now official, with Fox passing on its remaining pilots, comedies Linda From Hr, starring Lauren Graham, Type A, toplined by Eva Longoria who already had indicated she would not continue, and Thin Ice as well as dramas University Project and Behind Enemy Lines — all from 20th TV.

Doctor Who series 10: Mark Gatiss interview

Louisa Mellor Jun 6, 2017

A few weeks ago, we chatted to Mark Gatiss about his Doctor Who series 10 episode, The Empress Of Mars…

This Saturday evening, Mark Gatiss will take us on a trip to Mars. 1881 Mars, to be precise, where the Doctor and Bill find themselves mystified by the presence of a group of Victorian colonists. Gatiss’ ninth Doctor Who episode is space historical The Empress Of Mars, which features the return of some familiar foes.

Fox Pilots: Five Projects Still Alive, Barely

Fox is heading home from the upfronts with most of its pilots that did not get series orders still formally alive. The only one to have gotten an official pass was Amy’s Brother, the Melissa McCarthy-produced comedy pilot from Warner Bros. TV. The other pilots in limbo include comedies Linda From Hr, Type A and Thin Ice and dramas University Project and Behind Enemy Lines, all from 20th TV. None is considered particularly hopeful, at least not in their current… »

Doctor Who: the real monsters of series 10

16 May 2017 8:53 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor May 17, 2017

Oxygen and Thin Ice show that the monsters aren’t what’s truly scary in Doctor Who series 10…

Warning: contains spoilers for Doctor Who series 10 episodes 1-5.

See related  Was season 4 Arrested Development's best yet?

Sci-fi is often a testing ground for our fears. We take something that scares us, dress it up in a tentacled bug suit, and write a comforting story about how we defeated it. (Sometimes we write stories about how it defeated us, but those don’t tend to sell as well.)

From the very start of the genre, writers have shaped monsters from the stuff of their anxiety—hubristic scientific advance or disease or enemies from this war or that—and designed scenarios in which, through pluck, luck and brains, we send them packing or squash them flat. Nuclear war, AIDS, terrorism? Bug suit. Story. Defeat.

Like any good sci-fi show, »

Prozac Nation: a film breaking down a mental health boundary

10 May 2017 8:56 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Chloe Catchpole May 11, 2017

Not many may have seen the Christina Ricci-headlined film adaptation of Prozac Nation. But it's a film with a real power to it.

One of the most damaging stigmas surrounding mental health is shame. The personal pressure to maintain a ‘normal’ façade is all consuming and perpetually draining. It is an onerous full time job shrouded in secrecy.

“Do you like Little Mix?”

There’s a bit towards the end of the Sylvester McCoy Doctor Who story, The Curse Of Fenric, that always moves me. I don’t want to spoil the exact nature of it, not least because it’s a moment that hits you all the harder if you don’t see it coming. Just that it involves Ace, played by Sophie Aldred, and it really adds something special and incredibly human to the story.

I bring it up because I love the last third of Knock Knock, »

Alien: Covenant review

Ridley Scott returns with another Alien prequel to follow 2012’s Prometheus. Here’s our spoiler-free review of Alien: Covenant...

Please note: this review contains a light spoiler, something that's been revealed already in the film's promotion. But just flagging it here in case you've managed to avoid everything so far.

Prometheus was a lot of things, but one of the things it seldom felt like was an Alien movie. In some respects, this was a positive; rather than offer a straight retread of his 1979 hit, director Ridley Scott went off in another direction - broadening out the Alien universe with tales of humanity’s origins and ancient gods on »

‘Doctor Who 10×03: Thin Ice’ Review

1 May 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Three episodes into this year’s season of Doctor Who, and we are in Victorian England. With more of a hint of Dickens about some of the tropes used in the episode, will Thin Ice be a damp squib of an episode, or a behemoth of excellence?

Instead of returning The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Bill (Pearl Mackie) to the University, the Tardis arrives in London 1814. With the Thames frozen over, the people are celebrating the Frost Fair on top of the Thames itself but with something lurking under the water will The Doctor be fish food?

While the current run of Doctor Who may be on fine form, Thin Ice feels like a bit of a dip in quality for the show. While it isn’t a failure, and still holds interest, it feels a little lacklustre compared to the previous episodes of season 10. What it does provide though »

Doctor Who Season 10 Episode 3 Review: Thin Ice

29 April 2017 11:19 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

With a history as long and complex as Doctor Who has, each episode can become something of a trial for writers: acknowledging past adventures while simultaneously crafting a new and intriguing story.

Unfortunately, Doctor Who Season 10 Episode 3 really strayed too far into whole plot references to be altogether enjoyable for its own sake.

"Thin Ice" featured the Doctor and Bill visiting the Frost Fair in 1814 and discovering that there was an enormous creature under the ice, being fed people in order to produce fuel for the engines of London.

If this premise sounds vaguely familiar, it should.

In Doctor Who Season 5 Episode 2, "The Beast Below," the Doctor and Amy visited Starship UK and discovered that the "ship" was actually built on the back of a massive spacefaring creature which was being fed people...

And later in this episode, the Doctor asked Bill to make the choice for what to do about the unfortunate creature, »
