The fifth and last season saw Norman (Freddie Highmore) dealing with the aftermath of his methodical killing of his mother, Norma (Vera Farmiga).

20th Century Women (Mike Mills)

That emotional profundity most directors try to build to across an entire film? Mike Mills achieves it in every scene of 20th Century Women. There’s such a debilitating warmness to both the vibrant aesthetic and construction of its dynamic characters as Mills quickly soothes one into his story that you’re all the more caught off-guard as the flurry of emotional wallops are presented. Without ever hitting a tonal misstep, Mills’ latest »

7 Filmmakers Turning Amazon Into An Art House Cinema Powerhouse

28 March 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Hot off the critical and awards season success of Kenneth Lonergan’s “Manchester by the Sea,” Amazon is continuing to ink major production deals with some of the art house world’s biggest stars, from newly-minted Oscar winner Barry Jenkins to the the delightfully original Leos Carax — and that’s just the start. Amazon’s relationship with creators also includes a number of television heavy-hitters, including Amy Sherman-Palladino and Matthew Weiner, but the keen eye they’ve turned on filmmakers is the one to watch.

Still, there is much work to be done. While Amazon has had major success working with filmmaker and showrunner Jill Soloway — and its latest batch of pilots includes a standout from “Gilmore Girls” alum Sherman-Palladino — the list of filmmakers who recently signed on to produce features with the studio is woefully lacking when it comes to female talents. If you can grab a Yorgos Lanthimos, »

Being There (Hal Ashby)

On paper, there’s an implausibility to the central conceit of Being There that could have resulted in a four-quadrant studio comedy forgotten soon after its release. However, with Hal Ashby’s delicate touch — bringing Jerzy Kosiński and Robert C. Jones‘ adaptation to life — and Peter Sellers‘ innocent deadpan delivery, this 1979 film is a carefully observed look at how those we interact with can offer an introspective mirror into our own lives. “There’s so much left to do, »

Rihanna Will Not Star in Leos Carax Pop Star Drama ‘Annette’; Was It Too Good to Be True?

16 March 2017 1:52 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The indie movie world got some amazing news earlier this week when Amazon acquired U.S. rights to Leos Carax’s “Annette.” The film, which marks the first English-language project from the “Holy Motors” director, begins production this spring and has the very enticing duo of Adam Driver and Rihanna in the leading roles. Or at least it did.

Pitchfork is now reporting that Rihanna’s representatives have confirmed that the pop star is not starring “Annette.” Rihanna had been reportedly attached to the film for several months, as was Rooney Mara. The Amazon acquisition release made note that Mara had left the film, but did mention Rihanna was still on board. According to the singer’s reps, this is no longer the case. No word yet on how this might affect »

‘Holy Motors’ Director Leos Carax Will Soon Start Production on ‘Annette’ With Adam Driver and Rihanna

14 March 2017 1:12 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Amazon Studios has acquired the U.S. and Canadian distribution rights to “Annette,” starring Adam Driver and Rihanna, as reported by Variety. The musical drama will be helmed by French director Leos Carax (“Holy Motors”), who’s working in English for the first time.

“I hope to make a film one day that will be music. I wanted life in music, that is what I wanted here,” Carax told IndieWire’s Eric Kohn back in 2012. Now, he gets to do exactly that.

Shooting for “Annette” will begin in the spring and include several international locations. The film will feature original songs by American art-rock band Sparks.

Rooney Mara Drops Out of Leos Carax’s ‘Annette,’ Acquired by Amazon Studios

14 March 2017 12:34 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

This year, Rooney Mara will star in an epic-sounding arthouse music-centered drama shot across the world — but it won’t be Leos Carax‘s Annette. We heard rumblings of this earlier this year, but now Variety has confirmed that “other commitments” (i.e. production on Brady Corbet’s Vox Lux) has caused the Song to Song actress to drop out of Carax’s Holy Motors follow-up, which stars Adam Driver and Rihanna.

While producers are currently looking for another lead, there is some good news to go with the disappointment. Amazon Studios, coming off working with Jim Jarmusch, Kenneth Lonergan, Asghar Farhadi, Park Chan-wook, and James Gray, have picked up the film. Annette, marking Carax’s English-language debut, is a musical telling the tragic story of a stand-up comedian whose opera singer wife is deceased. He finds himself alone with his 2-year-old daughter who has a surprising gift.

Elle (Paul Verhoeven)

Paul Verhoeven’s latest treatise on high / low art isn’t going to appeal to everyone, and, as this awards season has shown, it’s already deeply offended some. But its messiness and blurred moral provocations are key to its power as a piece of cinematic trickery. A masterful character study, Elle dresses up a pulpy morality play with an austere European arthouse sheen, then sends its powerfully passive lead through a minefield of ethical conundrums, »

We Are The Flesh / The Lovers on the Bridge

We Are The Flesh (Tenemos la carne)

Blu-ray

2017 / Color / 1:85 widescreen – though the aspect ratio changes at the director’s whim/110 min. / Street Date February 28, 2017

Starring: Noe Hernandez, María Evoli and Diego Gamaliel.

Cinematography: Yollótl Alvarado

Film Editor: Yibran Asuad and Emiliano Rocha Minter

Written by Emiliano Rocha Minter

Produced by Julio Chavezmontes and Moisés Cosío

Directed by Emiliano Rocha Minter

Teetering on that thin edge between the ludicrous and the even more ludicrous, Emiliano Rocha Minter’s We Are The Flesh is a spittle-flecked, willfully deranged vision of life in a post-apocalyptic Mexico. Since its release in 2016, Minter’s movie, adrift in bodily fluids and overwrought speechifying, has been turning both heads and stomachs at film festivals across Europe.

An unconvincing mix of Living Theatre provocations and Eraserhead-like tableaus of bursting placentas and the drip, drip, drip of menstrual blood, Minter’s movie announces itself with the »

45 Years (Andrew Haigh)

Andrew Haigh’s third feature as a director, 45 Years, is an excellent companion piece to its 2011 predecessor, Weekend. The latter examined the inception of a potential relationship between two men over the course of a weekend, whereas its successor considers the opposite extreme. Again sticking to a tight timeframe, the film chronicles the six days leading up to a couple’s 45th wedding anniversary. Though highly accomplished, Weekend nevertheless suffered from a tendency towards commenting »

Allied (Robert Zemeckis)

That thing we can’t take for granted: a film whose many parts – period piece, war picture, blood-spattered actioner, deception-fueled espionage thriller, sexy romance, and, at certain turns, comedy – can gracefully move in conjunction and separate from each other, just as its labyrinthine-but-not-quite plot jumps from one setpiece to the next with little trouble in maintaining a consistency of overall pleasure. Another late-career triumph for Robert Zemeckis, and one of the year’s few truly great American movies. »

Fireworks Wednesday (Asghar Farhadi)

After a festival tour back in 2006, Asghar Farhadi’s Fireworks Wednesday was theatrically re-released by the newly established Grasshopper Films, and now it’s arriving on DVD. The drama is another precisely calibrated, culturally specific demonstration of Farhadi’s skills in constructing empathy machines. Further in line with the director’s filmography, this story has a nesting-doll structure that combines ingrained social hierarchies, domestic drama, and a tragic intersection of misunderstandings. And while it »

Arrival (Denis Villeneuve)

Within the alien subgenre, there lies another. Therein, knowledge is treasure and the fifth dimension is love. The major rule: once the mystery and the chills have subsided, the revelations are enlightening and the welcomes warm. Thankfully, Denis Villeneuve‘s Arrival is more worthwhile than that. The film juggles a bit of world-building with meaty, compelling characters while trying to make linguistics look cool. No easy task, but the film does so in a breeze »
