Artsploitation Sees North American Distrib Life for ‘Death in Buenos Aires’ (Exclusive)

4 December 2014 11:44 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Buenos Aires – In a deal sealed at Ventana Sur, Raymond Murray’s Artsploitation Films has acquired from Vicente Canales’ Film Factory Ent. North American rights to Natalia Meta’s feature debut, thriller “Death in Buenos Aires.”

Artsploitation plans a theatrical release in the spring of 2015, with a DVD and VOD release in the fall.

Produced by Veronica Cura, whose credits also include Cannes Camera d’Or winner “Las Acacias,” and released in Argentina by Bernardo and Paula Zupnik’s Distribution Co, “Death” over-indexed on home territory, punching $2.4 million from a May 15 release. That B.O. trawl currently ranks as the fifth highest gross for an Argentine title this year.

“Death” stars Mexican Academy Award nominee Demien Bichir (“A Better Life”), who plays a hardened detective teamed with a cocky rocky cop (played by Chino Darin, the son of Ricardo Darin), to solve the murder of a member of Argentina’s moneyed classes. »

More retirement talk from Quentin Tarantino, discusses his inspiration for The Hateful Eight

11 November 2014 12:29 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A couple of years ago, Quentin Tarantino suggested that he’d hang up his directing gloves after reaching ten films, stating that he didn’t want his filmography to suffer as he became an “old-man filmmaker”. Well, he’s now reiterated those thoughts during a Q&A at the American Film Market, where he was promoting his upcoming western The Hateful Eight.

“I don’t believe you should stay onstage until people are begging you to get off,” said Tarantino (via Deadline). “I like the idea of leaving them wanting a bit more. I do think directing is a young man’s game, and I like the idea of an umbilical cord connection from my first to my last movie. I’m not trying to ridicule anyone who thinks differently, but I want to go out while I’m still hard. … I like that I will leave a 10-film filmography, »

Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight' Cast Finalized

6 November 2014 10:38 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

I'm still trying to stay relatively in the dark about The Hateful Eight, Quentin Tarantino's western that had a script leak and a major reading. I saw the teaser that was just some shiny After Effects and liked it, I heard goo things from people more engaged in the project than I and liked it. I know the film will be shooting in Telluride Colorado and "presented in 70mm" and I like those things too.

Now, we have the official press release from The Weinstein Company that solidifies the cast of this tale of waylaid bounty hunters and strangers.

The 84th Academy Awards: If I had been a voter

9 September 2014 4:44 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Once again today I’m going to be taking a look back at a recent Oscar lineup and explaining what my vote would have been in each of the big eight categories we all follow so intently each season. I previously mentioned that potentially I could do this once a week with previous Academy Award ceremonies, and while I’m going to be truing to do that, time will still tell. Again, if nothing else, this gives you an interesting look into my cinematic tastes. Over the course of the year you can sort of get a feel for what my current favorites are, but now we can look to the past a bit more. Alright, here goes nothing: Best Picture – Moneyball The nominees here for this ceremony were The Artist, The Descendants, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, The Help, Hugo, Midnight in Paris, Moneyball, The Tree of Life, and War Horse. »

Samba Review [Tiff 2014]

7 September 2014 8:29 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As the plight of illegal immigrants remains a hot-button issue in American and international politics, many current films have looked at this struggle in unique, singular ways. Titles like Sin Nombre, A Better Life and Dirty Pretty Things have dramatized a collection of sad, squalid tales that need to be told in today’s inflamed political arena. However, few of them boast much in the way of laugh-out-loud comedy.

Samba, the new film from The Intouchables directors Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano, uses the appeal of its lead star, Omar Sy, to generate crowd-pleasing moments in what is likely the cheeriest movie ever made about the immigrant’s plight. Despite its light touch, the levity works.

Sy plays Samba Cissé, a man from Senegal who has worked a lot of low-paying jobs after arriving in France a decade earlier. He sends much of his measly paycheck to his family back home. »

A Better Life: Ellis’ Latest a Masterful Drama of Sacrifice

British director Sean Ellis brings us to the Philippines with his third feature film, Metro Manila, a bleak and often harrowing portrait of a family’s struggle to build a better life for themselves. Ellis first made headlines for his 2006 debut, romantic comedy Cashback, followed by the international led cast of his oblique 2008 horror film, The Broken, and his latest only proves he’s a filmmaker of varying and styles and techniques. Ellis, also serving as cinematographer for the first time, brings us a grim exercise set in the urban underbelly of Manila and it is as desperately moving as it is unpredictable.

When the price of rice drops significantly, poverty stricken Oscar Ramirez (Jake Macapagal) and wife Mia (Althea Vega) decide to move with their two children to Manila to see if they might have better luck in the urban metropolis. »
