“It’s funny when folks who have never met me email me or call me over the phone,” she said, over coffee recently, “and they tell me what they think Poc audiences want. That’s always a laugh for me.”
As one of the few black women running a major film exhibition house in the U.S., the 37-year-old former programmer at the Jacob Burns Film Center has embraced that side of her story — and at a pivotal moment of cultural transformation across the movie business, uses it to inform many strategic decisions for Bam programming.
“My overall mission is to have a nimble,
Ivory is currently writing “The Judge’s Will,” based on longtime collaborator Ruth Prawer Jhabvala’s short story of the same name, for director Alexander Payne; he isn’t content to simply write, however: “I’d also been thinking about doing an adaptation of the novel ‘Coral Glynn’ by Peter Cameron, which I’d like to direct, set in England in the 1950s,
Sophie Nelisse and Abigail Pniowsky also star in the film about a quartet of women struggling with their own truths, flaws and secrets as their pasts color their future. Graham, best known for starring roles in Paul Thomas Anderson's Boogie Nights and The Hangover trilogy, will play a divorced woman who, along with her headstrong teenage daughter (Nelisse), invites her ex-husband's second wife, played by Balfour, and her daughter (Pniowsky) to move in with them following her ...
Daniel Day-Lewis mesmerizes in his role as the obsessed but elegant couture designer and is joined by Academy Award® nominee Lesley Manville and Vicky Krieps in this “ravishingly beautiful” (NY Times) film. Written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, Phantom Thread is set in the glamour of 1950’s post-war London. Renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Manville) are at the centre of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutants and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock. Women come and go through Woodcock’s life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and comfort, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover.

In Bergman’s 1966 art-house classic, a nurse (Bibi Andersson) takes care of an actress (Liv Ullmann) who suddenly stops speaking. While isolated in a cottage on
There is no doubting that in the last (nearly) three decades, Quentin Tarantino has been one of the best film-makers around. His back catalogue is rich, varied and impressive. If you’re asking me for rankings, then his first two, Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction come out on top. Death Proof props up the list. The under-appreciated gem of his list for me is Jackie Brown. Then if we’re looking beyond his work as director and purely on writing duties, then I’ve got a whole lotta love for True Romance (which everything included would rank just behind Dogs and Pulp).
Since we moved into the 21st century I would say his projects have begun veering into inconsistency. That’s not to say he’s not doing great work. When Kill Bill is great, it’s really masterful.

In the very first minutes of the sitcom Flowers, Julian Barratt’s character, Maurice, a depressed children’s author, ties a noose to a tree, slips it round his neck and jumps from a chair. The branch snaps almost immediately. “Fuck’s sake,” he grumbles and trudges back inside.
That first series, broadcast two years ago, was bolstered by an extraordinary cast including Olivia Colman (soon to play Elizabeth II in The Crown) and Daniel Rigby, who won a Bafta playing Eric Morecambe. Bold and grotesque, it had the feel of a grownup fairytale, a strange, sad and often very funny story of depression and family dysfunction.
For Marshall, a veteran producer who went on to produce films like “Jurassic World”, plus the “Indiana Jones” and “Jason Bourne” franchises, it was a Hollywood dream come true.
“Full Metal Jacket”
Rip R. Lee Ermey. Only he could find a way to make the donut the ultimate motivational tool in this chilling scene from Stanley Kubrick’s “Full Metal Jacket.”
Among all the creative, memorable moments in Disney’s “Zootopia,” this delightful one of Officer Hopps chasing down a robber through the tiny mouse town stands out for Officer Hopps’s donut heroics.
A source close to the studio confirmed to IndieWire that “The Other Side of the Wind” will have numerous cinema showings, but details for the rollout are still being planned. Netflix owns global rights to the film.
Last year, Netflix’s “Okja,” “Mudbound,” and “The Breadwinner” each had a limited theatrical release. Royal Road Entertainment’s Filip Jan Rymsza, one of Marshall’s closest collaborators on the resuscitated project, previously told Wellesnet that one provision of their agreement with Netflix was turning
Dern began her career as a teenager more than 30 years ago. Dern seemed to initially aspire to a more normal life but her attempts to finish her college degree at the University of Southern California were continually interrupted by obtaining plum film roles. That she’d eventually settled into an acting career isn’t surprising since her father Bruce Dern is a two time Oscar nominee and her mother Diane Ladd a three time nominee.
SEEEmmys 2018: Could Laura Dern earn double nominations for ‘Twin Peaks’ and ‘The Tale’?
I’ve long championed a certain cinematic underdog. An actor who burst onto the scene full of promise. A character actor with an edge and the ability to play tightly wound and/or complexly simple-minded characters with aplomb.
The other day as I sat and watched King of the Gypsies for the first time in well over a decade, it dawned on me that the film, which marked Roberts first foray into film, was now 40 years old. Perusing his CV and the sheer number of credits to his name, some may actually assume he’s been making films since the dawn of time but let’s say that since the digital age and the ease (and cost effective way) of which films can be produced means that he’s been more prolific. Roberts doesn’t

“Dano has worked with the likes of Denis Villeneuve, Bong Joon-ho, Rian Johnson, Steve McQueen, and Paul Thomas Anderson, but the past collaborations that he seems to draw the most from for Wildlife are Ang Lee and Kelly Reichardt,” I said in my review. “Blending the emotional subtleties of a drama like the The Ice Storm and the understated appreciation for location in all of Reichardt’s films, especially Certain Women, it’s a beautifully articulated drama in which every line has captivating subtext,
In the Directors Lab (May 28-June 21), filmmakers will rehearse, shoot, and edit key scenes from their scripts, working closely with industry advisors, actors, and production crews to help drive creative growth via an immersive and hands-on experience at the Sundance Resort in Utah.
