Listen: 90-Minute Talk With James Gray About 'Nights Of Cabiria,' His Film Career, And More

7 July 2015 12:39 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s been over two years since “The Immigrant” made its world premiere at Cannes, and writer/director James Gray is hard at work getting "The Lost City Of Z" ready to shoot later this year. Nevertheless, he managed to find the time to stop by film critic Peter Labuza’s podcast “The Cinephiliacs” for a candid hour-long chat. The conversation covers Gray’s career in film, but what’s perhaps most revealing is hearing the two talk in depth about Federico Fellini's 1957 classic “Nights of Cabiria.” Read More: James Gray Talks 'The Immigrant,' Diving Into TV With 'Red Road,' And His Own Favorite Films  Having talked about the importance of storytelling early on in the episode, Gray singles out “Nights of Cabiria” for its astonishing simplicity and how it still manages to evoke “a vaguely operatic silent film feeling." The director notes Fellini’s »

Listen to James Gray Talk Fellini, 'The Immigrant' and His Favorite Movies

6 July 2015 12:59 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

James Gray has, since 1994 debut "Little Odessa," enjoyed a fruitful American indie film career despite studio pressures and tussles, including TWC's infamous dumping of "The Immigrant," his 2013 Cannes premiere that became a critics' cause celebre.  Gray, now foraying into television with a hardboiled animated series for adults, joins host Peter Labuza on the latest episode of The Cinephiliacs podcast to unpack his work, thoughts on indie filmmaking and Federico Fellini's "Nights of Cabiria" whose streetwalker with a heart of gold played by Giulietta Masina influenced Marion Cotillard's tragic heroine of "The Immigrant."

Say What You Will About the Academy - But Some Cool International Names Among 2015 New Member Invitees

30 June 2015 6:47 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Academy invitee Eddie Redmayne in 'The Theory of Everything.' Academy invites 322 new members: 'More diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before' The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has offered membership to 322 individuals "who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures." According to the Academy's press release, "those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy's membership in 2015." In case all 322 potential new members say an enthusiastic Yes, that means an injection of new blood representing about 5 percent of the Academy's current membership. In the words of Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs (as quoted in the press release), in 2015 "our branches have recognized a more diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before, and we look forward to adding their creativity, ideas and experience to our organization." In recent years, the Academy membership has »

Oscar News: 322 Invited To Join; The Academy Museum Receives Approval

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.

“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”

“We are grateful to our incredible community of supporters who have helped make this museum a reality,” said Dawn Hudson, the Academy’s CEO. “Building this museum has been an Academy »

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar

26 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning.  For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing.  Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women.  And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »

Academy Invites Record 322 New Members in Push for More Oscar Diversity

26 June 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.

Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.

Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically »

Review: Uninspired And Disengaged 'Madame Bovary' Starring Mia Wasikowska

9 June 2015 3:04 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It is not a prerequisite that the period costume drama needs a hook, but it certainly doesn’t hurt. Joe Wright’s stylish “Anna Karenina” dazzled with a theatrical approach, and Andrea Arnold’s “Wuthering Heights” employed an austere commitment to form coupled with an expressively Malick-ian appreciation of nature. Gracefully pitched acting can also be enough (see James Gray’s “The Immigrant”), but unfortunately for Sophie Barthes, her adaptation of “Madame Bovary” is largely bereft of these qualities in any compelling form. Instead, the movie is delivered in a restrained, far-too-measured tone that is often flat and enervating. There have been countless TV and film adaptations of “Madame Bovary.” In cinema, Vincente Minnelli, Albert Ray, Claude Chabrol, and Jean Renoir have all had a go at Gustave Flaubert's debut novel, but rarely have the writer's sensibilities been rendered for the screen by a female director. But feminist thoughtfulness »

2015 Cannes Critics’ Panel Day 11: Kurzel’s “Macbeth” Avoids Tragic Fate

23 May 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

It was last year’s most snap worthy Cannes Market one sheet image and it pretty much secured an In Comp entry the moment Marion Cotillard signed on. The actresses’ fourth consecutive year in the Palme d’Or hopefuls (Rust and Bone, The Immigrant, Two Days, One Night), actually make that five if it is followed by It’s Only the End of the World in 2016, this latest version of Macbeth comes from an Aussie director who made the most noise in the Critics’ Week section when his Snowtown (later known as The Snowtown Murders) launched Justin Kurzel into a nice sophomore gig. While some of our critics jetted out early, here is a sampling of grades to feast on.

Wild Bunch launches La sales arm Insiders

9 May 2015 10:20 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

First titles include Jeff NicholsLoving and Sean Penn’s Flag Day, starring daughter Dylan Penn.

Wild Bunch has announced the launch of a new La-based sales company, called Insiders, focused on independent pictures with budgets above $15m.

The new outfit will act as a sales service company for third party financiers, who will eventually also have the opportunity to take an equity stake in the entity. Insiders will be their independent sales agent, marketing their films to distributors around the globe.

Wild Bunch co-founder Vincent Maraval said the creation of Insiders was in response to the growing importance of equity financiers in the financing of independent film production in the Us.

“Over the last few years we’ve seen the American market for the financing of independent film change - with equity partners increasingly financing independent American films more than distributors,” he told ScreenDaily.

As a result of this trend, he said, Wild Bunch »

James Gray Bites Into 'Hard Apple' With '70s-Set Animated Crime Series

9 April 2015 1:32 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Well, here's something both unexpected and a little bit surprising. While James Gray is well-versed in crime drama ("Little Odessa," "The Yards," "We Own The Night"), he's not the first name you think of when you hear the word "animation." Given his unsatisfactory experience making "The Red Road," you might think television and the small screen wouldn't be an enticing proposition. But here's the thing, this time he's going to have a lot more control, and the material sounds pretty great. Read More: James Gray Talks 'The Immigrant,' Working With Marion Cotillard, The Late Harris Savides, And Much More Variety reports that Gray will executive produce and look over all the creative decisions on "Hard Apple." The animated show is geared towards adults and based on Jerome Charyn’s books that track Isaac Sidel, a fictional a detective who walks through three decades of law enforcement starting in the 1970s. »

Canal Plus Bites Into ‘Hard Apple’ With James Gray (Exclusive)

8 April 2015 9:07 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Looking to explore different genre and worlds, French pay TV giant Canal Plus is joining forces with American filmmaker James Gray to foray into “Hard Apple,” an adult-skewing animated series.

Gray, whose latest movie, the Marion Cotillard starrer “The Immigrant,” opened in competition at Cannes, will serve as executive producer and will supervise all creative aspects of the series, including the writing.

Inspired by New York-born author Jerome Charyn’s “Isaac Sidel” novels, the series opens in the 1970s and charts the rise of New York City’s premier law enforcer, detective Isaac Sidel, as he covers three decades of crime and political corruption.

Hard Apple” brings together an A-list creative team, leading with Israeli illustrators Tomer and Asaf Hanuka, who have worked for the New Yorker, Rolling Stone, as well as Ari Folman’s film “Waltz With Bashir.” The pair will create the animation designs such as the decor and characters. »

Interview: James Gray Talks 'The Immigrant,' Diving Into TV With 'Red Road,' And His Own Favorite Films

8 April 2015 9:03 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Director James Gray is something of a cinematic chameleon. While his films to date could be broadly categorized as crime dramas ("Little Odessa," "The Yards," "We Own The Night") or romances ("Two Lovers"), those descriptors are often merely the cloak that hides deeply layered and complex character studies between fathers and sons, men and women, those chasing ambition, or trying to outrun fate. And while the beautifully produced "The Immigrant," on Blu-ray this week, is on its face a period drama, it's also so much more. Starring Joaquin Phoenix, Marion Cotillard and Jeremy Renner, the film tells the story of Ewa, a Polish immigrant who crosses over to America in the early 1900s, only to discover her path to the American Dream thwarted by a charming, but deceptive, young man who forces her into prostitution. But hope lingers for Ewa, thanks to the attention of a magician who is eager to whisk her away. »

Canal Plus Stocks Up on High-End English-Language Series (Exclusive)

8 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With the launch of Netflix in France, the competition for subscribers has heated up, and Gallic pay TV giant Canal Plus is now, more than ever, banking on premium original drama, and building bridges with local and international film and TV talent, to keep its 11 million subs happy, and lure more.

A decade ago, Canal Plus was all about soccer and films. But today, the TV landscape has changed, and the paybox — which has lost some of its French soccer rights to Al Jazeera’s Bein Sports — has begun to measure its value in high-quality local series rather than be overly dependent on U.S. drama imports (such as “Scandal,” “The Big Bang Theory” and “Revenge”). Fabrice de la Patelliere, the boss of Canal Plus’ fiction department, is kicking off a new chapter in the pay TV group’s history by joining forces with James Gray on “Hard Apple,” an »

'A Most Violent Year' and 'The Immigrant' Lead This Week's New DVD and Blu-rays

7 April 2015 8:10 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

A Most Violent Year I was not the fan most were of J.C. Chandor's A Most Violent Year. It was one of those movies I respected more than enjoyed for its aesthetic, its approach to the genre and the performances. However, as I wrote in my review, I felt it was "a movie that feels like it's trying to be something rather than actually being that something." A second viewing may give me a little more respect for its narrative, but that's where I sit right now.
