The World Got A Lot Scarier "After Tiller"

10 June 2014 6:35 PM, PDT | | See recent JustPressPlay news »

If there is a single issue in America more divisive than abortion, it's late-term abortion, or abortion in the third trimester. The most public face of this practice was George Tiller, a Wichita-area provider who was gunned down while in church in May of 2009. Following his death, there remained only four doctors in the United States willing and able to perform the operation: Leroy Carhart, Warren Hern, Shelley Sella, and Susan Robinson. The day-to-day lives of their clinics (and their more personal struggles with the nature of their work) are detailed in After Tiller, and as a human essay, the documentary is nearly impeccable. Though few people's opinions on the subject are likely to be changed by a single documentary, Tiller suffuses the debate with much needed humanism to supplant the abstract rhetoric that has come to define it. What is somewhat lacking, however, is perspective; much in the debate has changed after Tiller, »

Interview with Emily Matthews, Cinetopia International Film Festival Marketing Director

4 June 2014 3:19 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Watching how Ann Arbor’s (and now also Detroit’s) Cinetopia Film Festival has grown each year has been exciting for a movie buff like me. Realistically, I’ll probably never make it to Cannes or Sundance, so to me, this is The film festival – and it’s a festival that I’ll never get sick of talking about. When the lights go out and the first week of June rolls by, the public sees the byproduct of the hard work the Cinetopia staff puts in planning a great festival. One of the people on the front lines of that hard work is Cinetopia and Michigan Theater Marketing Director Emily Matthews. She recently took time to breathe before the festival’s opening night to answer a few of our questions.


CinemaNerdz: For the uninitiated, what is Cinetopia?

Emily Matthews: It’s 50 buzz worthy new independent films that you can binge-watch in your own backyard. »

2014 Independent Spirit Award Winners: '12 Years a Slave' Takes Best Picture

1 March 2014 8:31 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The night before the 2014 Oscars was a big one for 12 Years a Slave as it took home five wins at the 2014 Independent Spirit Awards including Best Picture, Director (Steve McQueen), Supporting Actress (Lupita Nyong'o), Screenplay (John Ridley) and Cinematography (Sean Bobbitt). However, don't take this to mean 12 Years is a lock at the Oscars as its strongest competition in categories such as Picture and Director, those being Gravity and American Hustle, weren't among the "independent" nominees. Some likely Oscar winners were among the list of winners as Dallas Buyers Club co-stars Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto took home Best Actor and Supporting Actor respectively. Cate Blanchett took home yet another Best Actress prize for her work in Blue Jasmine and 20 Feet from Stardom won Best Documentary, proving even the Spirit Awards weren't going for The Act of Killing, though that doesn't diminish the impact of Joshua Oppenheimer's film.

Forget the Soap…12 Years A Slave Pulls Five Finger Discount at the 2014 Indie Spirit Awards

1 March 2014 4:20 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave pulled a five finger discount at the 2014 Indie Spirit Awards grabbing hardware in the Best Feature, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Supporting Actress and Best Cinematography categories. Apart from the larceny in the Best Doc category, the winners in the above mention category (excluding Bobbitt’s work) and the double win pairing of Leto and McConaughey along with Cate Blanchett’s perf win in Blue Jasmine will likely repeat itself less than 24 hours later at tomorrow’s Academy Awards celebrations obviously begging many to ponder the following: who needs the 86th Academy Awards when we have the Indie Spirit Awards? While today’s most pleasurable wins come from the truly indie kudos for Best First Feature (Ryan Coogler for Frutivale Station) the John Cassavetes award for Chad Hartigan’s This is Martin Bonner, and the Piaget Producers Award to Ain’t Them Bodies Saints »

2014 Independent Spirit Awards predictions

28 February 2014 11:46 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It may be raining. It may be chilly. One thing is for sure, the drinks will be flowing and the giant tent that is the annual home for the Independent Spirit Awards will be buzzing. This year's show will be hosted by comedian and actor Patton Oswalt. The star of "Big Fan" and "Young Adult" is no stranger to entertaining massive and difficult audiences. Oswalt ruled Comic-Con's Hall H a few years ago when he had the tough task of making Disney's slate at the time more exciting than it actually was. He's also following a fantastic hosting performance by Andy Samberg last year. Here's hoping the Spirits can actually deliver two great shows in a row (it tends to lean toward a good show every other year). Like the Golden Globes, and the SAG Awards to an extent, the Spirits mostly focus on the awards presentations. Over the past »

Golden Globes 2014: Amy Poehler & Tina Fey's 6 Greatest Moments (Video)

13 January 2014 3:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There were a lot of big question marks going into this year's Golden Globe Awards -- Who would take home the top prizes? What would people be wearing? Who knew she was pregnant? But one aspect of the awards show that was pretty much a given was that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were going to knock 'em dead in their sophomore outing as the awards show's hosts. The unnecessary cruelty of Ricky Gervais now in the distant past, this is the era of the friendly (but not toothless) female host.

And, for an awards show free of drama or pretty much anything else that could be classified as "interesting," it turns out that their surefire hilarity was the obvious highlight of the night. Almost every joke they delivered was a gut-buster, although it must be said that it would have been nice to see more of them. In the Ricky Gervais era, »

12 Years A Slave, The Railway Man, The Square: this week's new films

10 January 2014 11:20 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

12 Years A Slave | The Railway Man | Delivery Man | After Tiller | 1: Life On The Limit | Exposed: Beyond Burlesque

12 Years A Slave (15)

(Steve McQueen, 2013, Us/UK) Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, Lupita Nyong'o, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Dano. 134 mins

What with the acclaim, the awards buzz and the harrowing subject matter, finally seeing McQueen's slavery drama now feels like a duty. But this is an "issue movie" unlike any other, both in its deliberate formalism and its under-represented history. Along with Ejiofor's abductee, we're fully immersed in a slavery system so brutally oppressive even the expression of suffering is forbidden. McQueen gives us a study of institutionalised cruelty, the forces propping it up and its innumerable victims.

The Railway Man (15)

(Jonathan Teplitzky, 2013, Aus/UK) Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman. 116 mins

Middle-aged romance is rapidly derailed by events of the past in this earnest bio-drama, as Kidman spurs Scotsman Firth to revisit his Asian prisoner-of-war days, »
