First Official 'Borgman' Trailer and Poster

8 April 2014 12:24 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Drafthouse Films will release Alex Van Warmerdam's Borgman on June 6 and today I have the first trailer and poster for the dark and twisted story, of which I regrettably missed at last year's Cannes and Toronto Film Festival. The film features Jan Bijvoet in the title role as Camiel Borgman whose arrival in a residential area disrupts the life of the carefully constructed fa?ade of an arrogant, wealthy couple, their three children and the nanny. In fact, Borgman may actually be the Devil. I've heard good things about this one with comparisons to the work of Giorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth) and Michael Haneke (Amour) having been made. I'm looking forward to finally seeing it for myself. sb id="911009" height="259" width="610" »

Happy Birthday Michael Haneke: Watch 4 Of His Best Films for Free Online

24 March 2014 8:23 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Few directors have achieved international renown comparable to Michael Haneke. Two of his films have claimed the prestigious Palme D’Or at Cannes ("Amour" and "The While Ribbon"). He’s an auteur of the highest caliber: his oeuvre, largely drawing from the traditions of literature and philosophy, is unique in its muted but controversial style. His films ooze with latent violence, pregnant silences, allegories, complex characters navigating an unforgiving world, and cinematography that’s both stark and exquisite. What makes Haneke's work most compelling, though, is that he's uninterested in entertainment value. Instead, he’s interested in exposing and chronicling the human condition, covering everything from colonial guilt ("Cache") to the gravity of death ("Amour"). Ultimately, in Haneke’s own words, his films are "24 lies per second at the service of truth." The director turned 72 yesterday. We’re honoring him by offering up four of his films to stream for free on Indiewire’s parent. »

Tom Tykwer’s A Hologram For The King Starring Tom Hanks Begins Photography in Morocco

6 March 2014 3:04 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Shooting started in Morocco today on the comedic drama A Hologram For The King, which is being directed by Tom Tykwer (“Cloud Atlas”, “Perfume”), who also adapted the script from the eponymous novel by Dave Eggers.

The independently-financed production stars Tom HanksA Hologram For The King reunites Hanks, Tykwer, Schott, and Arndt after working together on Cloud Atlas, which has grossed over $130 million globally.

The picture takes place far away from the recession-weary USA, as an up-and-coming Saudi Arabian city provides the backdrop for foundering American businessman Alan Clay’s (Tom Hanks) last-ditch effort to stave off bankruptcy, pay his daughter’s college fees, and finally accomplish something big. A Hologram For The King is a gentle, crazy, wistful ballad recounting the journey of a man, who has lost almost everything, to a country that requires him to rise to completely unknown challenges – and that answers old questions in new and unexpected ways. »

Review: Valeria Golino Takes A Nuanced Look At Death In Directorial Debut 'Miele'

4 March 2014 4:08 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If Michael Haneke's "Amour" presented death as a sobering inevitability, one that will test the bounds of our ability to love, actress Valeria Golino has a slightly more nuanced perspective in her directorial debut "Miele." While the subject of euthanasia is the entryway into the story, Golino wisely strays from turning her film into an Issues Movie, and instead opts to explore death both as a vessel for closure and a window into appreciating the life we have. The Noomi Rapace-esque Jasmine Trinca (all cropped hair, switchblade scowl and tomboy figure) leads the film as Irene, aka the titular Miele (meaning honey), her code name when she's on the job as an assisted suicide practitioner. Since assisted suicide is illegal in Italy, it requires almost Lisbeth Salander-ish levels of covert maneuvers. She travels to Mexico once a month and smuggles back veterinary grade barbiturates which she uses as part of her procedures, »

Final Oscar predictions smackdown: Tom O'Neil vs. Tariq Khan (podcast)

1 March 2014 6:45 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

  "It's Oscar Armageddon!" I shout at my fave pundit nemesis Tariq Khan as we face our final battle over predictions. Last year I pummeled him mercilessly when he scooted out onto a thin, shaky limb for Emmanuelle Riva ("Amour") and, of course, I turned out to be right. Now he blasts me gleefully over my Leo DiCaprio pick. I'm not ruffled.I feel (kinda, maybe a little, sorta) confident that Tariq'll be gobbling Oscar crow late Sunday night. But Tariq really hits his mark here when he attacks my reasoning for dumping Lupita Nyongo for Jennifer Lawrence. It's a great gotcha moment in this podcast. Uh-oh. Should I switch back to Lupita while there's still time? Ummmm .... naw. Bottom line: I sense the same growing momentum for Jlaw in the home stretch as I did those years when Marion Cotillard and "Braveheart" ambushed the derby in the home stretch.

Indiewire’s Film Critic Picks the Oscars: The Best Foreign Language Oscar Nominee Is the One Least Likely to Win

27 February 2014 8:41 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In a time when even prominent critics complain about the glut of movies, the greatest victims are those with subtitles. In the United States, non-English language cinema is often considered a box office anathema, which gives particular weight to the foreign-language Oscar. In recent years, the category awarded Michael Haneke's "Amour" and Asghar Farhadi's "A Separation," two profoundly mature works that ranked among the year’s finest from any country. This year, none of the frontrunners deserve the prize as much as the one least likely to win it. That’s not to say the category is short on quality; in fact, it contains some of the richest, varied storytelling found there in years. Yet if the Oscar were handed only to the finest achievements in contemporary motion pictures — rather than the crop that receive the best campaigns — "The Missing Picture" would easily top this category.

Five reasons why Leonardo DiCaprio won't win Best Actor at Oscars

17 February 2014 7:23 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

When Tom O’Neil told me that he had switched his Best Actor prediction from Matthew McConaughey in “Dallas Buyers Club” to Leonardo DiCaprio in “The Wolf of Wall Street,” I was thrilled. After all, it’s simply no fun when the pundits agree on everything. Some of us have to be willing to try and call the longshots, even if it means that we’ll sometimes be wrong. (Emmanuelle Riva in “Amour,” anyone?) As O’Neil keeps saying, it’s unlikely that everything will go as scripted on Oscar night. There’s bound to be at least one big surprise. Maybe Best Actor will be it. But after reading his analysis, I have to admit that I’m just not convinced. Below, the top five flaws that I see in his case for DiCaprio. 1. O'Neil assumes that support for frontrunner McConaughey is less than solid When upsets in the major categories occur, »

Prize Fighter Analysis: BAFTA wins for '12 Years a Slave' and 'Gravity' further muddle a tight Oscar race

16 February 2014 5:19 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Will it be Gravity or 12 Years a Slave? We keep looking for clarity, but this year’s award season is not forthcoming.

The BAFTA awards — think of them as the British Oscars — are considered a major Academy Award indicators, and this year 12 Years a Slave won Best Film. But … Gravity claimed the award for “Outstanding British Film” (since it was mostly produced there.)

So there.

Exactly what makes Gravity — from a Mexican director and writer, featuring two American stars — a British film is the source of much jest at the moment, but whatever the justification, it claimed one of two »

'Gravity' Wins 6 At 2014 BAFTAs But '12 Years A Slave' Takes Best Film & Actor

16 February 2014 1:35 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

After a few weeks off from awards ceremonies, the two-week homestretch of the season, ahead of the Oscars two weeks from now, gets underway tonight with the 2014 BAFTA Awards. The British Academy of Film and Television Arts have, in recent years, become an increasingly convincing predictor of which way the Academy will go, though as ever, there's always some differences (last year, for instance, saw "Amour" star Emmanuelle Riva take Best Actress). This year sees "Gravity" lead the nominations pack, with "12 Years A Slave" and "American Hustle" close behind. Will Alfonso Cuaron's film manage to take the top prizes? Or will Steve McQueen, or even David O Russell, snag them? Or will the homegrown "Philomena" pull off a surprise? The ceremony, at London's Royal Opera House, hosted by Stephen Fry, is just getting underway—we'll be updating the winners below over the next few hours, as they come in, »

Foreign Helmers Remix France’s Unique Heritage Sites

12 February 2014 6:26 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Over recent years France’s heritage sites, many run by the French state, have woken up to the tremendous economic and promotional potential associated to hosting film, TV and advertising productions.

“2005 was the beginning of a new era in terms of international production,” claims Olivier-Rene Veillon, exec director of the Ile de France Film Commission.

“‘The Da Vinci Code,’ filmed in the Louvre museum, and ‘Marie Antoinette,’ set in Versailles, ushered in a new mindset about France’s landmark locations.”

Whereas over a decade ago, producers might have been given the cold shoulder when contacting heritage locations, or sometimes stalled with red tape, they now encounter slick logistical machines.

“Over the last five-to-six years the French government and the authorities that oversee heritage buildings and museums have realized the tremendous value of hosting film productions,” says Thierry de Segonzac, prexy of technicians union, Ficam. “Until then, there were major constraints on using such locations, »

‘Seashore,’ ‘Baby’ and ‘Moon’ Lensing in France in 2014

12 February 2014 5:52 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hunger Games-helmer Francis Lawrence will be trekking to Gaul to lens “Seashore” in 2014.

Other high profile pics already greenlit by the revamped Trip tax rebate scheme include NBC’s mini-series “Rosemary’s Baby” and Bill Mechanic-produced “The Moon and the Sun.”

Cnc topper Frederique Bredin expects 2014 to be a record year in terms of international productions. “It’s still very early to tell, because decisions on location shooting are taken in a very short timeframe, and projects are kept confidential,” she explains. “But I can already tell you that 5 international productions, recently approved by the Trip scheme, will generate 100 days of filming in 2014, which is a very good start for the year.”

Since the scheme was introduced in 2009, more than 70 foreign productions from 14 countries have benefited from Trip.

In 2013 Trip-qualified foreign shoot spend in France exceeded $136.7 million – 7% of global French production spend.

David Trueba’s ‘Living Is Easy’ Tops Spanish Goya Academy Awards

9 February 2014 3:56 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

David Trueba’s dramedy “Living is Easy With Eyes Closed” swept Spain’s 28th Goya Academy Awards Sunday, scooping best film, director, original screenplay, actor (Javier Camara) and breakthrough actress  (Natalia de Molina).

Ironically, another title snagged more kudos at this year’s Goyas, Spain’s equivalent of the Oscars, Alex de la Iglesia’s “Witching & Bitching,” which cleaned up on craft prizes – seven in all – and also won supporting actress for vet Terele Pavez.

Best actress went to Marian Alvarez for drama “Wounded,” whose helmer Fernando Franco also won first-time director. Playing a 30-year-old ambulance driver woman, Alvarez already took best actress prize at September’s San Sebastian Festival.

Sold at Berlin by Marina Fuentes’ Six Sales, period comedy “Living” marks David Trueba’s first Goya award after eight nominations.

Set in Franco’s Spain, comedy turns on a Spanish schoolteacher who drives to Andalusia’s Almeria to meet John Lennon, »

Austrian Cinema: Diverse Dozen Thrive in Berlin’s Lineup

7 February 2014 10:30 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Austrian cinema looks set to make another big splash at this year’s Berlin Film Festival. The diverse lineup is certain to springboard to fests around the globe, where Austrian film continues to represent an increasingly broad range of up-and-coming talent and works by veteran filmmakers.

A dozen Austrian works are unspooling at this year’s Berlinale, from such genre pics as Alpine Western “The Dark Valley” (pictured) from established helmer Andreas Prochaska to the competition selection “Macondo,” Sudabeh Mortezai’s debut feature about an immigrant family in Vienna, and “Cracks in the Concrete,” by Umut Dag (“Kuma”), about an ex-convict trying to keep a son he doesn’t know from making the same mistakes he made.

“It’s really quite amazing,” says Austrian Film Commission managing director Martin Schweighofer, pointing out that Austrian pics will be unspooling “from competition to Forum, Berlinale Special, Panorama, Panorama Special, shorts — it’s quite an avalanche. »

‘Me, Myself and Mum,’ ‘Blue Is the Warmest Color’ Top Noms For France’s Cesar Awards

31 January 2014 2:23 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris –Abdellatif Kechiche’s “Blue Is the Warmest Color” won the Cannes Palme d’Or. But the Wild Bunch-sold title has some serious competition at France’s Cesar Awards – the country’s equivalents of the Oscars.

Announced Friday by France’s Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences at the Fouquet restaurant on the Champs Elysees Friday, “Blue” scored in eight categories, two behind Gaumont’s “Me, Myself and Mum,” the directorial debut of Comedie Française-trained actor Guillaume Gallienne, which, having won two prizes at Cannes’ Directors’ Fortnight, broke out to a more than two million tix sales at the French box office, making it one of France’s only considerable hits of last year.

Also in the running for select trophies are Catherine Deneuve (“On My Way”), Mathieu Amalric (Jimmy P.”) and Lea Seydoux – for “Blue.”

“Blue” and “Me, Myself and Mum” are two gems discovered at Cannes: »

Blu-ray, DVD Release: Il Sorpasso

30 January 2014 3:02 PM, PST | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: April 29, 2014

Price: Blu-ray/DVD Combo $39.95

Studio: Criterion

Jean-Louis Trintignant and Vittorio Gassman hit the road in Il Sorpasso.

The ultimate Italian road comedy, the 1962 film Il sorpasso stars the unlikely pair of Vittorio Gassman (Big Deal on Madonna Street) and Jean-Louis Trintignant (Le Combat dans l’ile, Amour) as, respectively, a waggish, free-wheeling bachelor and the bookish law student he takes on a madcap trip from Rome to rural Southern Italy.

An unpredictable journey that careens from slapstick to tragedy, Il sorpasso, directed by Dino Risi (the original Scent of a Woman), is a wildly entertaining commentary on the pleasures and consequences of the good life.

Considered by many to be a holy grail of commedia all’italiana, Il sorpasso remains a fresh and lively entertainment, and one that has long been adored in its native Italy.

Presented in Italian with English subtitles Criterion’s Blu-ray »
