‘Dom Hemingway’ Star Demian Bichir Talks Working With Jude Law, Where to Find Good Mexican Food (Video)

2 April 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

You probably know Demian Bichir from his Oscar-nominated role in “A Better Life.”  But we know the Mexico City native as a cool cat who likes to enjoy a cold one. Bichir and TheWrap‘s Jeff Sneider recently sat down for authentic Mexican beers at La Casita Mexicana in Bell, California. Also read: FX's ‘The Bridge’ Adds Demian Bichir's Brother to Cast In the first video (above), Bichir explains how he got involved in his new movie “Dom Hemingway,” a foul-mouthed comedy starring Jude Law, from “The Matador” director Richard Shepard.

Film Reviews: Opening This Week (March 24-28, 2014)

Noah

(Paramount)

Having made movies about obsessive characters looking for God — or something like Him — in the numerology of the Kabbalah (“Pi”), at the end of a heroin needle (“Requiem for a Dream”), and in the outer reaches of the galaxy (“The Fountain”), surely it was only a matter of time before Darren Aronofsky got to making one about a man with a direct line to the Creator. And so we have “Noah,” in which the world’s most famous shipwright becomes neither the Marvel-sized savior suggested by the posters nor the “environmentalist wacko” prophesied by some test-screening Cassandras, but rather a humble servant driven to the edge of madness in his effort to do the Lord’s bidding. Counterintuitive, perhaps, but by no means sacrilegious, Aronofsky’s uneven but undeniably bold, personal, visually extravagant take on the Old Testament tale will surely polarize critics and audiences while riding a »

Film Review: ‘Greencard Warriors’

28 March 2014 6:46 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Uncle Sam wants you, but not quite enough to give you your citizenship. At least that’s the message imparted by “Greencard Warriors,” a well-meaning but leaden and predictable inner-city drama about the hardscrabble lives of illegal immigrants trying to survive the violent streets of Central Los Angeles. We’ve been here before — and better — in films by Gregory Nava (“Mi familia”), Edward James Olmos (“American Me”) and Chris Weitz (“A Better Life”), which offered finely detailed atmosphere and character work where Dutch writer-director Miriam Kruishoop offers mostly tiresome ghetto cliches. After playing the fest circuit last year under the title “Crosstown,” the pic rolls out in select AMC theaters this weekend via distrib New World Cinemas.

For her English-language directing debut, Kruishoop (“Vive Elle,” “Under the Palms”) has chosen the kind of social melodrama that seeks to open the eyes of privileged audiences to some alarming plight happening right under their bourgeois noses. »

Thursday’s Oscar Noms: The Big Moment in a Non-Stop Blitz

15 January 2014 11:20 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

This week is the awards equivalent of the Polar Vortex: You’re not exactly sure what it means, you just know it’s intense.

After nearly five months of full-throttle campaigning, Thursday offers the moment of truth as AMPAS president Cheryl Boone Isaacs and Chris Hemsworth announce nominations for the 86th Academy Awards at 5:38 a.m. Pt.

Predictions? In a year full of rich films, there are only two sure things. First, a lot of great contenders are not going to be nominated, due to overcrowding this year. Second, there will be a few dark-horse inclusions. In the past, Academy voters have offered welcome surprises such as Demian Bichir (“A Better Life”), John Hawkes (“Winter’s Bone”), and the films “The Blind Side” and “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close,” to cite just a few examples.

But Thursday’s unveiling is only part of a 10-day awards stretch that is »
