Ventana Sur’s Blood Window Focuses Ramp-up of Latin American Genre (Exclusive)

27 November 2014 5:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mar Del Plata – A cohort of Latin America’s young high priests of horror – Uruguay’s Gustavo Hernandez, Argentina’s Adrian and Ramiro Garcia Bogliano and Daniel de la Vega, Mexico/L.A.’s Lemon Films, Colombia’s Rhayuela, Cuba’s 5th Avenue – will congregate for Ventana Sur’s Blood Window, which ranks, besides Austin’s Fantastic Market as one of Latin America’s two big Latin America genre jamborees.

Notably, Latin America’s modern genre build is an almost entirely 21st century phenomenon. None of the 21 directors featured at Blood Window in either its six-title Work in Progress or much larger Beyond the Window helmed a feature before 2000.

“There’s always been a sensation, not only in Argentina but also over Latin America, that genre couldn’t really belong to us: It was the almost exclusive preserve of Americans,” said Incaa’s Javier Fernandez, Blood Window organizer.

“Just a few years back, »

Rosewater movie review (London Film Festival)

14 November 2014 12:46 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Jon Stewart’s first film is passionate and principled, as I expected, but also hopeful, almost serene, and even gently amusing, which I did not. I’m “biast” (pro): love Jon Stewart

I’m “biast” (con): …but was a little worried whether he could pull this off

I have not read the source material

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

I had a lot of hopes for Jon Stewart’s first foray into narrative cinematic storytelling, which he’s never done before. I expected something passionate, principled, and political. In these I was not disappointed… and I was also pleased to discover that he has an aptitude for telling a complicated story that plays on multiple levels, both personal and cultural, in a smartly streamlined, easy to swallow way. What I wasn’t expecting was his tone in Rosewater: hopeful, almost serene, even gently amusing. »

Kevin Smith’s ‘Tusk’ looks really sick

26 July 2014 1:58 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

What else can you say other than this looks messed up? Well, it looks messed up in all the right ways. A not retiring anytime soon Kevin Smith (Clerks, Chasing Amy, and many podcasts) gives us our first real good look at his upcoming horror film, Tusk. Based on a prank craigslist ad that Smith and friend Scott Mosier discussed in depth on their Smodcast postcast, Tusk tells the story of a crazed old man attempting to turn a young podcaster into a walrus. Yep, a walrus. It can’t be emphasized enough that this film looks insane and twisted on every level. The film stars Michael Parks (Red State, From Dusk Till Dawn), Justin Long (Dodgeball, Jeepers Creepers), Haley Joel Osment (The Sixth Sense), and Génesis Rodríguez (Casa de Mi Padre) and is set to be released by A24 Films this September 19th.

Blu-ray, DVD Release: Y tu mamá también

30 May 2014 9:26 AM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: Aug. 19, 2014

Price: DVD $29.95, Blu-ray/DVD Combo $39.95

Studio: Criterion

Gael García Bernal (l.) and Diego Luna hit the road in Y tu mamá también.

The smash 2001 road comedy Y tu mamá también from the Oscar-winning director Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity) is that rare movie to combine raunchy subject matter and emotional warmth.

Gael García Bernal (Casa de mi Padre) and Diego Luna (Contraband) shot to international stardom as a pair of horny Mexico City teenagers from different classes who, after their girlfriends jet off to Italy for the summer, are bewitched by a gorgeous older Spanish woman (Tetro’s Maribel Verdú) they meet at a wedding. When she agrees to accompany them on a trip to a faraway beach, the three form an increasingly intense and sensual alliance that ultimately strips them both physically and emotionally bare.

Shot with elegance and dexterity by the great Emmanuel Lubezki (The Tree of Life »

Production Shingle Gary Sanchez Gets Sister Label, Gloria Sanchez, For Female-Centric Fare

12 February 2014 8:26 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Breaking: Gary Sanchez Productions, the film and television production company founded by Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, and Chris Henchy, has hatched a sister label. Gloria Sanchez Productions will generate female-driven film and TV projects. Longtime Gary Sanchez exec Jessica Elbaum will head the label and will court female voices for its projects. “When Jessica came to us with this idea, we thought it was fantastic,” said McKay and Ferrell. “She has worked with some of the great female voices in comedy and has proven herself as a gifted producer who has a keen eye for material. Elbaum has been with Gary Sanchez since its formation in 2006 and she has been a producer on such films as Step Brothers, The Other Guys, Casa De Mi Padre and Bachelorette, the latter of which fits the template for the kind of fare Gloria Sanchez wants to make. She also guided Ferrell’s 2008 stage show You’re Welcome America, »

Miniseries Spoof 'The Spoils of Babylon' Is An Affectionate Ode to '70s Bloat From IFC and Funny or Die

7 January 2014 9:51 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Matt Piedmont and Andrew Steele have an impressive and possibly doomed dedication to making detailed send-ups of genres with which their audience is almost certainly unfamiliar. Their 2012 movie "Casa de mi Padre," which Piedmont directed and Steele wrote, featured a Spanish-speaking Will Ferrell in a deadpan homage to telenovelas and Spaghetti westerns, complete with loving recreations of shoddy production values. Their new project "The Spoils of Babylon," which premieres on IFC this Thursday, January 9th at 10pm and, like "Casa de mi Padre" is produced by Funny or Die, is a spoof of '70s and '80s event miniseries, with some nods toward the more bloated, bombastic side of filmmaking from the era. "The Spoils of Babylon" is a miniseries itself, made up of six half-hour installments supposedly cut down from an original 22-hour run -- or so Eric Jonrosh tells us. Played by Ferrell, who alongside Adam McKay »

Interview: Adrian Martinez Talks Walter Mitty, American Hustle, Focus & More

6 January 2014 5:59 PM, PST | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

You know who Adrian Martinez is, right? Well, maybe you say you don’t, but odds are, you do. The guy may not be a headliner (yet), but it’s highly likely that you can recall his memorable performances in movies and TV shows like “Sex and the City,” “It’s Kind of a Funny Story,” “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close,” “A Gifted Man,” “Casa de mi Padre” and loads more. Martinez’s most recent credit comes from Ben Stiller’s “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” in which he plays Walter Mitty’s #2, the guy just under the negative assets manager at Life magazine. When Walter heads out on his first ever adventure to  [ Read More ]

Twelve Very Promising New TV Shows To Watch In 2014 (Part Two)

2 January 2014 5:20 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

6. The Spoils of Babylon

The Spoils of Babylon is an upcoming American comedy miniseries by Saturday Night Live veterans Andrew Steele and Matt Piedmont, directed by Piedmont (Casa de Mi Padre), and starring Tobey Maguire, Kristen Wiig, Tim Robbins, Jessica Alba, Val Kilmer, Haley Joel Osment, Michael Sheen, and Will Ferrell. It’s doubtful that any other sitcom on the small screen will be able to rival the star-power of this IFC mock-miniseries. The show is intended to be a spoof of the epic-scale TV events prevalent on American network television in the 1970s and 80s such as The Thorn Birds and Rich Man, Poor Man. Spoils of Babylon comes from the Funny or Die production house, and premieres at 10 p.m. Et Jan. 9 on IFC.
