Gucci Mane and Harmony Korine to Re-Team on ‘The Trap’ Alongside Benicio del Toro, Al Pacino and James Franco

12 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Gucci Mane and Harmony Korine aren’t done collaborating. After a supporting role in “Spring Breakers,” the rapper is set to appear in Korine’s upcoming “The Trap” alongside Benicio del Toro, Al Pacino and James Franco (“That’s my boy,” Gucci says in an interview with GQ Style).

Gucci also appeared in an ad for Supreme that Korine directed earlier this year. “Harmony is my close friend, so it was easy,” he tells GQ. “He’s super creative. Me and him work good together because we just freestyle shit, both of us don’t have no rigid mind state when we bring something to life. I love to act. It was just a great experience being in ‘Spring Breakers,’ and it was just the beginning.” Franco likewise starred in “Spring Breakers,” playing a character partially inspired by the rapper Riff Raff. »

Newswire: Gucci Mane is going to be in Harmony Korine’s long-gestating The Trap

18 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

We first heard about Harmony Korine’s The Trap way back in 2014. Now there’s a bit more information trickling out about the revenge flick, that is apparently starring James Franco and Benicio Del Toro. Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane will also be in it, according to a GQ profile of the Trap House writer upon his release from house arrest. The magazine says Mane, who appeared in Spring Breakers, will “start filming with Korine again soon,” so we guess this project is actually happening.

Back in February, Korine told Dazed (via Indiewire) that he was supposed to make The Trap in 2015, but “issues” with an actor delayed it. Then it sounds like it was put on hold due to Korine’s short attention span. “We’re supposed to wait until this May to shoot it,” he said at the time. ”I just have this thing where I lose ...

Harmony Korine Directs Sultry Ad For Yves Saint Laurent Fragrance

20 September 2016 8:03 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Director Harmony Korine currently has his hands in two features that are in different stages of development: “The Trap,” a star-studded film that includes Idris Elba, Benicio del Toro, and Al Pacino that was set to begin shooting last year but ended up being permanently delayed, and “Tampa,” an adaptation of Alissa Nutting’s acclaimed book by the same name that follows a teacher seducing a young student. But while he’s not tackling those two films, Korine has taken on another assignment, an advertisement for Yves Saint Laurent’s female fragrance Black Opium.

Bertrand Bonello on ‘Nocturama,’ John Carpenter, and Finding Violence in Willow Smith

13 September 2016 12:59 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Yes, the rejection of Bertrand Bonello’s youth terrorist drama Nocturama from major European festivals has pretty much been made public, which, despite the subject matter, is quite baffling: the film is easily one of 2016’s most formally and conceptually audacious works. (Check out our excellent review for an articulation of why.)

Luckily, it was programmed in Tiff’s Platform section and we could briefly catch up with Bonello in Toronto to discuss influences, the difficulties of making his film, and the choice of Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair,” which is sure to be the talk of the fall festival season — at least for people who matter.

The Film Stage: Just released online was an excerpt from an unmade remake of Vertigo you had wanted to do. In addition to the excerpt was the statement that part of Vertigo’s importance in film history is that it marked the »

The 10 most polarising movies since 2000

8 September 2016 10:53 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Sep 9, 2016

A new list reckons it's worked out the films that have most divided audiences since the year 2000...

There are movies that people love, there are movies that people hate. Perhaps the most fun? The ones that seem to divide people down the middle. Obscure Movie Stats has done a bunch of research, and reckons it’s come up with what it calls the most polarising movies of the century thus far. What’s more, three of the films that have made the top ten have been released in the last year too.

In the 30s to 11s are movies such as The Passion Of The Christ, Boyhood, Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull and – scandalously – Crank: High Voltage. But as for the top ten? Here’s the countdown…

1. The Room (not to be confused with Room, we might add...)

2. Ghostbusters (2016)

3. Suicide Squad

4. The Tree Of Life »

The 30 Most Polarizing Movies Since 2000: ‘Under the Skin,’ ‘Only God Forgives’ and More

6 September 2016 11:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Compiling data from Taste, the folks at Obscure Movie Stats have put together a list of the 30 most polarizing movies of the century so far. Among the expectedly divisive titles (“The Tree of Life,” “Paranormal Activity”) are some surprises: “Boyhood” doesn’t immediately spring to mind as an especially polarizing film, ditto “Punch-Drunk Love.” Full list below.

[Venice Review] The Bad Batch

6 September 2016 7:33 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Ana Lily Amirpour’s second feature shoots for Harmony Korine meets Mad Max and would have nearly almost hit the mark were it not for the gratingly aloof attitude and the swaths of directorial license being taken. The Bad Batch — an ambitious, expansive dystopian sci-fi western which features partying, drugs, and cannibals — might come as music to the ears of diehard fans of films like Spring Breakers and Gummo (a kid doesn’t quite eat spaghetti in a bathtub, but a kid does eat spaghetti after being in a bathtub). However, beneath its dazzlingly hip surface the script and characters leave much to be desired. It’s like taking a trip to Burning Man: a pseudo-spiritual, uniquely punky experience perhaps, but one that’s full of annoying rich kids and ultimately emotionally shallow.

Why ‘White Girl’ Breakout Morgan Saylor Knew She Had to Take Controversial Role – Springboard

2 September 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

IndieWire’s Springboard column profiles up-and-comers in the film industry worthy of your attention.

Elizabeth Wood’s feature directorial debut, the riveting and often shocking “White Girl,” doesn’t back down for even a minute. Loosely based on Wood’s own experiences attending college in New York City, the film follows Leah (Morgan Saylor), a privileged white girl who has never had to think too much about her place in the world, as she’s suddenly forced to do just that amidst unsettling circumstances. Initially fueled by the excitement of moving to a new neighborhood that comes complete with a sexy neighbor (Brian “Sene” Marc) who just so happens to also be a drug dealer, “White Girl” follows Leah as she gets in way (way) over her head when Marc’s character, the intriguing Blue, is arrested for his illegal activities.

How ‘White Girl’ Filmmaker Elizabeth Wood Turned Her Own Life Into Summer’s Wildest Movie — Girl Talk

1 September 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Girl Talk is a weekly look at women in film — past, present and future.

Filmmaker Elizabeth Wood is into excess. “I’m an over-talker, over-writer, over-shooter,” the “White Girl” writer and director recently explained to IndieWire. “I’m just an excessive person. More, more, more, more, give me more anything.”

But for Wood’s first feature, the daring “White Girl,” the filmmaker had to work against her own nature and strip down a hefty story – one based on her own experiences – to craft a tightly wound story that addresses issues as wide-ranging as white privilege, illegal drugs and sexual assault. Initially imagined as 200-page script that culminated in “a mass orgy,” Wood had to pare down her story to a slim 88 minutes, all in the name of maximum impact and minimum superfluity.

“The exercise of writing ‘White Girl’ was how to strip it down, how to tell this story with »

American Honey Review [Tiff 2016]

31 August 2016 1:29 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A sure sign of a quality road movie is the mere feeling that by its end, the audience feels as though it’s gone on a journey of emotions and a certain level of attentive endurance that parallels the physical and geographical journey undertaken by its characters. The advance notes on American Honey will inform the viewer that its runtime is nearly three hours; in other words, be prepared for a cross country trip that will feel as though you’ve been travelling for weeks by the time the credits roll.

This is a movie that understands itself and is entirely comfortable in itself. It’s one of those films that does something to you and then indirectly tells you what it did and how and why it did it. We’re introduced early on to the group of misfit salespeople, and director Andrea Arnold understands that to gain the audience’s trust, »

‘Morgan’ Review: Limp and Lackluster ‘Ex Machina’ Clone Needs More Brain Power

29 August 2016 9:01 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

No one in Luke Scott’s “Morgan” acts like a human, which is fine enough for some of his characters — after all, this is a film about a genetically engineered being run totally amok — but becomes slightly more problematic once the film attempts to dig deeply into themes relating to human emotion, human behavior, human fallibility…the list goes on and on. “Morgan,” for all its ambitious sci-fi trappings, is really a film about how being human is hard and messy and weird, a message that’s difficult to deliver by way of wooden lines, worse delivery and a series of cheap, gotcha! “twists” that do its audience no favors.

Lee Weathers (Kate Mara) is something of a fixer — a “risk management consultant” for a shady corporation who seems to only be dispatched when things have already gone way past risky (mention is made throughout the film of some sort »

‘Tampa’: Why Harmony Korine’s Wild, Anti-Hero Brand of Filmmaking Is Perfect for the Controversial Student-Teacher Sex Drama

29 August 2016 11:26 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The first thing you need to understand about the protagonist of Alissa Nutting’s wildly unsettling and wonderfully written 2013 novel “Tampa” is that she’s a monster. While Celeste Price — accurately described as “smoldering” in the book’s official synopsis — is physically stunning (and damn does she work for it), her emotional and psychological landscape is so diseased that whatever cinematic project springs forth from the material will likely look and feel more like a film about bloodthirsty vampires or Frankenstein’s creation or the abominable snowman or something similarly driven by lust and rage than any sort of dramatic offering about overcoming life’s harsh realities.

No one overcomes anything in “Tampa.” No one gets over anything.

“Tampa,” despite a premise that seems tailor-made to be turned into a prestige feature (perhaps in the vein of “Precious”?) or at least a Lifetime-ready movie of the week (think “Mother, May I Sleep With Danger? »

‘White Girl’ Review: Elizabeth Wood’s Ferocious Debut Is ‘Spring Breakers’ With A Summer Internship

29 August 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Essentially “White Privilege: The Movie,” Elizabeth Wood’s fire-breathing debut is an adrenalized shot of ecstasy and entitlement, a fully committed cautionary tale that’s able to follow through on its premise because — like the remarkable young actress who plays its heroine — the film is unafraid of being utterly loathsome. And make no mistake, while the madness of her misadventures is captivating from start to finish, you will hate the titular “white girl.” But it’s what Wood and her star do with that hate that makes their collaboration special, these two rising super talents manipulating your vitriol with the grace of a contortionist and the recklessness of a tornado.

A cherub-faced college kid who sublets a Ridgewood apartment with her best friend (India Menuez) for the summer, Leah (21-year-old “Homeland” alum Morgan Saylor) slinks around a mangy fizz of yellow-white hair, floating through the heat with the breezy confidence »

Does This List Really Reveal The Best Films Of The Century?

28 August 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway takes a look at a list claiming to reveal the best films of the 21st Century…

Earlier this week, casual film fans were sent running first to IMDb and then to Netflix or Amazon at the news that David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive was named in a poll of 177 film critics as the best movie of the 21st Century so far.

It’s been on my “I need to re-watch that” list for a while, and from what I remember it’s a fine film, but I don’t think it’s the best of this century. I don’t think the critics who put it at the top of the list believe it is either.

Only 16 of the 177 – less than 10% named it as their number one film (and at my count 150 critics didn’t include it at all), but it appeared in the top five in many lists. »

Newswire: Harmony Korine selects very Harmony Korine-esque topic for his next film

26 August 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Harmony Korine made his reputation on being a wunderkind provocateur, but now that he’s a fortysomething dad whose film Spring Breakers has earned its place on the BBC’s list of the top 100 films of the 2000s, it’s time for him to sit back and take a break. Maybe try something a little more conventional. A romantic comedy? A family film? One of those feel-good holiday movies where Diane Keaton wears a Christmas sweater and everyone bickers a lot but in the end they realize just how much they love each other?

Nah. How about a movie based on an uncomfortably explicit novel about a 26-year-old middle-school teacher’s sociopathic seduction of a 14-year-old student? The novel in question, Tampa, was published in 2013 and, unsurprisingly, stirred up quite a bit of controversy for its author, Alissa Nutting; The A.V. Club’s Becca James described it ...

Harmony Korine to Go ‘Lolita’ With New Feature ‘Tampa’

26 August 2016 1:55 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Harmony Korine has hardly been inactive as of late, but the fact that it’s been more than three years since Spring Breakers‘ release — four since its festival premiere — breeds a sense of waiting among devotees. (It doesn’t help that his stacked picture, The Trap, fell through not long before shooting was to commence.) The wait, or at least that sense of stasis, may very well be reaching its end: The Playlist got word that Korine, speaking during a Q & A with the Miami Beach Cinematheque, has announced movement on Tampa, which adapts a debut novel penned by Alissa Nutting. And, boy, does it sound right up the man’s alley.

Its Lolita-esque, Florida-set tale concerns Celeste, a middle-school teacher who finds herself deeply attracted to Jack Patrick, a 14-year-old student. As will be noted many a time, Slate‘s 2013 countdown of the year’s best novels ended their »

Mulholland Drive Tops BBC's 100 Best Movies of the 21st Century List

23 August 2016 12:21 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The modern movie landscape can make some people feel like the best days of film are behind us. With remakes, reboots and adaptations very abundant, and original movies seemingly not raking it in at the box office, that is an understandable sentiment. But the BBC felt like there are a lot of recent movies worth celebrating, and that is why they set out to make a list of the 100 greatest movies of the 21st century. The list they came up with is nothing if not interesting, and it is definitely a reminder that there are a lot of great movies that have been made in the last 16 years.

BBC published the list on Tuesday morning, after taking months to put it all together. In order to come up with this list, they used nearly 200 critics from both print and online publications, as well as academics and curators. The contributors that were used spanned the globe, »
