Eat the Rich: Close-Up on Sofia Coppola’s "Marie Antoinette"

Close-Up is a feature that spotlights films now playing on Mubi. Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette (2006) is showing from April 8 - May 8, 2018 in the United Kingdom.In 2006, Juicy Couture, the clothing brand synonymous with velour tracksuits, released their first fragrance. Instantly beloved by teen girls, available at Walmart, Juicy Couture’s eponymous fragrance smells like tropical punch with base notes of dessert tray—synthetic aromas that choked high school hallways for at least half a decade hence. The print campaign for the fragrance features pastel hues, ribbons, puppies, and a rebellious rococo wardrobe. In it, a model wears a towering, cotton candy wig—as if she not only smells but is also slowly becoming edible. That same year, Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. Similarities between this historic-ish film and the Juicy Couture ad campaign are striking. Depending on who you talk to, Marie Antoinette

Bassett in “Black Nativity”: Phil Bray/Fox Searchlight

The Virgin Suicides

Sofia Coppola’s first feature film is a head-swirling poetic essay about adolescent angst and terminal self-destruction in suburbia, where some families are unbalanced, others are dysfunctional and some are just plain toxic. Coppola sticks close to the source book, looking for visuals to express author Jeffrey Eugenides’ solution-challenged mystery, narrated by a composite group of teenaged boys.

Cannes Will Welcome Back Lars von Trier, Says Festival Director

Cannes Will Welcome Back Lars von Trier, Says Festival Director
Director Lars von Trier, who was declared “persona non grata” at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival for comments he made about Adolf Hitler, will return to Cannes for the first time since then, festival general delegate Thierry Fremaux said on French radio on Tuesday.

Von Trier’s “The House That Jack Built,” the study of a serial killer played by Matt Dillon, has long been rumored to be a contender for a slot at this year’s festival. When asked about that by a French radio host, Fremaux confirmed that Cannes would have a von Trier announcement in the coming days.

When the host pressed him to confirm that the film had been added to the lineup, Fremaux responded, “I sort of did.”

The House That Jack Built” is set in Washington state and covers the life of the killer over a dozen years. Other cast members include Riley Keough, Bruno Ganz and Uma Thurman. IFC acquired U.S. rights to the film in Cannes last May.

Known as a cinematic provocateur, the Danish director caused a furor at Cannes in 2011 when his film “Melancholia” screened in the main competition. Asked at a press conference to discuss his German roots and his interest in the Nazi aesthetic, he began a long and rambling answer by saying, “I thought I was a Jew for a long time, and I was very happy… But it turned out that I was not a Jew…

“And then I found out that I was really a Nazi because my family was German. Which also gave me some pleasure. What can I say?”

As the film’s star, Kirsten Dunst, pleaded with von Trier to stop talking, he added, “I understand Hitler. I think he did some wrong things, absolutely, but I can see him sitting in his bunker at the end. I think I understand the man. He’s not what you call a good guy, but I understand much about him, and I sympathize with him a little bit.”

While von Trier quickly issued a formal apology for the comments, he was banned from the rest of the festival and declared “persona non grata,” though “Melancholia” remained in the official competition. (Dunst won the festival’s best actress award.)

The director’s next film, the two-part 2013 drama “Nymphomaniac,” did not screen in Cannes. But Fremaux has in recent years said that he was open to having von Trier return to the festival, and in Tuesday’s interview, he said that festival president Pierre Lescure has been working to lift the director’s “persona non grata” status.

Fremaux also said that Russian director Andrey Zvyagintsev, who was in competition at Cannes last year with “Loveless,” will serve on the jury this year. The rest of the jury, which will be headed by Cate Blanchett, has yet to be announced.

Ben Croll contributed to this report.

Connecticut Man Pleads Guilty to Hacking Hollywood Stars' iCloud Accounts

Connecticut Man Pleads Guilty to Hacking Hollywood Stars' iCloud Accounts
A Connecticut man has pleaded guilty to hacking into the iCloud accounts of Hollywood stars and others so he could steal personal information, including private photographs and videos.

Federal prosecutors say 26-year-old George Garofano, of North Branford, pleaded guilty Wednesday to unauthorized access to a protected computer to obtain information.

The charge stemmed from the investigation into the 2014 scandal in which the private photos of Jennifer Lawrence, Kirsten Dunst, Kate Upton and others were made public.

Prosecutors say Garofano sent emails that appeared to be from Apple encouraging victims to disclose usernames and passwords. He...

Lars von Trier Won’t Return to Cannes (Yet), But Here’s the Story Behind His 2011 Banishment

While the Cannes Film Festival will not include five Netflix films, there was another notable omission when the festival unveiled its 2018 slate: Bad boy Danish auteur Lars von Trier will not return to the Competition with his latest “dark and sinister” film “The House that Jack Built” (IFC Films), starring Riley Keough, Uma Thurman, and Matt Dillon as a serial killer who narrates the story, Ripley-style — with humor. (Trier’s 2014 feature “Nymphomaniac” played Toronto and other festivals.) Von Trier was banned from the festival seven years ago, and while Cannes has suggested that it might invite him back, so far that hasn’t happened.

It’s possible that Trier could still make his way to Cannes, as artistic director Thierry Fremaux hinted at the end of his press conference. The head programmer has reportedly been talking through this possibility with Cannes’ influential board of directors, which represents a range of major film organizations in France.

Chicago Med Season 3 Episode 12 Review: Born This Way

  • TVfanatic
Finally, we had our team working different shifts!

Okay, so that's a silly thing to be excited about, but there really wasn't anything else on Chicago Med Season 3 Episode 12 that peaked my interest. 

Same old, same old. 

Two of our docs finally got out of the Ed, which was a nice change, I guess. I was pretty disappointed with the whole homeless pregnant teen story, although it did lead me down some to some interesting Google queries. 

This case, once again, highlights one my biggest frustrations with Chicago Med Season 3. It's not that Natalie is almost solely relegated to pregnancy and infantile cases, but that there seem to be no long-term changes based on any of the doctor's cases or revelations.

Review – Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Blu-ray Bonus Features

Tai Freligh reviews the bonus features on the Blu-ray release of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

I thoroughly enjoyed Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, so when the opportunity came up to review the home video bonus features ahead of the film’s release, I jumped at the chance. I was curious as to how they would address the original film with Robin Williams (hint: there’s a featurette for that!) and I wanted to see the gag reel because having seen a few movies now with Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, I knew it should be comedy gold (it wasn’t).

Like any home video release with more than just a trailer included on the DVD, the bonus features for Jumanji were hit and miss. There were several throwaway features, but what saved the whole lot was two features in particular.
