Jane Fonda Recalls The Guilt She Felt After Her Mother's Suicide: 'You Always Think It Was Your Fault'

Actress Jane Fonda has always been candid about her complicated relationship with her dad, Henry Fonda. But in a revealing new interview, the 80-year-old star opened up about her mom Frances Ford Seymour's tragic 1950 suicide when Jane was just 12 years old. "If you have a parent who is not capable of showing up, not capable of reflecting you back through eyes of love, it has a big impact on your sense of self," Jane recently told Jess Cagle for PeopleTV of her mother's battle with bipolar disorder before her death. "As a child, you always think it was your fault… because the child can’t blame the adult, because they depend on the adult for survival. It takes a long time to get over the guilt," she continued.

Burt Reynolds’ 8 Most Memorable Roles, From ‘Gunsmoke’ to ‘Boogie Nights’ (Photos)
Burt Reynolds, one of the great movie stars of the ’70s and a massive sex symbol on screen, has died. Reynolds flashed his charisma and his testosterone in largely blockbusters and action films, but he always demonstrated dramatic range and energy even late into his career. Here are some of the actor’s most iconic and memorable movie and TV roles.

Gunsmoke

Reynolds hopped around TV for several years before landing a recurring part on the long-running Western “Gunsmoke.” For three years and 50 episodes he played Quint, a part Native American man who in this scene flips a guy onto a barroom table after he’s called a “dirty half-breed.”

Deliverance

In John Boorman’s classic about a group of men in a perilous fight against nature, Reynolds plays the domineering alpha male, open leather vest, crossbow and all. But the film grapples with themes of masculinity and how being

Jack Nicholson movies: 45 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Cuckoo’s Nest,’ ‘Chinatown,’ ‘The Shining’

Jack Nicholson movies: 45 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Cuckoo’s Nest,’ ‘Chinatown,’ ‘The Shining’
While an English-language version of Germany’s 2016 foreign-language contender “Toni Erdmann” doesn’t feel all that necessary, it would have been interesting to see how Jack Nicholson would have handled the prankish pop who stalks his workaholic daughter. But now it seems that Jack-o, who came up with the idea for the re-do, is no longer involved in the project. Rumors about memory loss and retirement are out there.

But, taking a cue from the title of the last movie he appeared in, 2010’s “How Do You Know,” how do we know? When I talked to Nicholson for this reunion with director James L. Brooks – an unfortunate flop – I asked him why he waited three years to do another movie after his hit, “The Bucket List.” His response: “I’ve been reading scripts. Yes, they are all very similar. You just keep getting these stories about retirement, or the wife

‘Fox & Friends’ Co-Host Remembers U.S. Defeat of ‘Communist Japan’ in World War II

“Fox & Friends” co-host Ainsley Earhardt had a bit of historical amnesia on Thursday as she recalled great moments in U.S. history like our defeat of “communist Japan” in World War II.

“We defeated communist Japan, radical Islamists. We ask our men and our women to go overseas to fight for our country and sacrifice so much for this great country so we can be the land of the free, the land of the brave,” she said.

“We’re the most generous country in all of the world. Yes, we have our faults, but because of this country, our world is definitely a better place. We are great.”

Unfortunately for Earhardt, her classification of Japan is incorrect. World War II Japan was not a Communist country but was a fascist military dictatorship presided over by Emperor Hirohito.

Peter Fonda’s The Hired Hand Available on Blu-ray September 18th From Arrow Academy

The Hired Hand will be available on Blu-ray September 18th From Arrow Academy

Having been at the forefront of America s here-and-now with Easy Rider and the counterculture movies of Roger Corman, Peter Fonda retreated to the past and the American West for his directorial debut, The Hired Hand.

Fonda plays Harry, a man who deserted his wife and child to explore the wide-open plains with his best friend Archie (Warren Oates). Tired of the life , he decides to finally return home in order to rekindle his marriage and reacquaint himself with his daughter.

Scripted by Alan Sharp, shot by Vilmos Zsigmond and with a standout score by folk musician Bruce Langhorne, The Hired Hand is a beautiful, elegiac picture that ranks alongside The Outlaw Josey Wales and Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid as one of the finest Westerns the seventies had to offer.

‘The Last Movie’: Dennis Hopper’s Misunderstood Masterpiece Deserves a Second Chance — And Now, It’s Getting One

‘The Last Movie’: Dennis Hopper’s Misunderstood Masterpiece Deserves a Second Chance — And Now, It’s Getting One
Before Frances Ford Coppola battled the elements for “Apocalypse Now” and Werner Herzog dragged a steamship up a hill in “Fitzcarraldo,” Dennis Hopper concocted a Hollywood project so bizarre and ambitious it nearly destroyed his career. He couldn’t have picked a more appropriate topic to put it all on the line: “The Last Movie,” Hopper’s 1971 directorial follow-up to the success of “Easy Rider,” starred the actor as a disgruntled stunt coordinator on location in the Andes Mountains who grows disillusioned with filmmaking and attempts to abandon the industry.

But the ghosts of cinema continue to haunt him, once he’s drawn back to the Peruvian village where the movie was shot to find the natives attempting to make their own imaginary movie — except they’re using cameras and microphones made of sticks, and swapping simulated violence for the real deal. This absurd twist takes on a frantic, disorienting quality,

‘The Last Movie’ Trailer: First Up From New Distributor Arbelos Is 4K Restoration Of Cult Classic

  • Deadline
‘The Last Movie’ Trailer: First Up From New Distributor Arbelos Is 4K Restoration Of Cult Classic
Exclusive: Arbelos Films has constructed a trailer for The Last Movie, the now cult Dennis Hopper experimental indie that has divided film aficionados since its 1971 release. Arbelos has completed its 4K film restoration of the pic that now becomes a notable distribution kickoff for the company, which acquired Cinelicious after it dissolved more than a year ago.

The Last Movie opens August 3 at the Metrograph in New York, the city that marked the site of the original’s unsuccessful critical and commercial 1971 bow, which came on the heels of Hopper’s enormous success with Easy Rider in his directing debut. The restoration will later screen at the American Cinematheque in Los Angeles and 19 other locations nationwide.

The plan is for Los Angeles-based Arbelos to mine the Cinelicious library it now reps to release both older and newer films. Also on its upcoming slate and Béla Tarr’s 1994 film Sátántangó.

Boundaries – Review

With a fine cast headed by Christopher Plummer and Vera Farmiga, Boundaries looked promising but the road trip dramedy manages to hit every cliche pothole along its way. Which is a shame – such a good cast deserved a better script.

Laura (Vera Farmiga) has daddy issues, and talks with her therapist about how she needs to set “boundaries” with her charming but unreliable father Jack (Christopher Plummer). Laura’s problem is a big heart, taking in endless strays and bordering on animal hording, but she is most devoted to her 13-year-old son Henry (Lewis MacDougall). It has been just them since her equally unreliable ex (Bobby Cannavale) abandoned them early on but Laura has carved out a stable life for her son.

When she gets a call that her dad has been kicked out of his retirement home for dealing pot.

Fox Business Chief Defends Maria Bartiromo After ‘Toothless’ Trump Interview

Fox Business is hitting back at critics who accused anchor Maria Bartiromo of conducting a softball interview with President Trump this weekend.

On Monday evening, network president Brian Jones said he was very proud of the morning anchor and all of her hard work.

Maria Bartiromo’s wide-ranging interview with President Trump made news on multiple fronts and elicited answers to numerous questions,” he said in a statement provided to TheWrap. “We are proud of her hard work and continued success across each of her Fbn and Fnc programs.”

On Sunday, Bartiromo became the latest Fox personality to sit down for an interview with the president. Critics widely panned the performance, attacking Bartiromo for softball questions and missed opportunities for a follow-up. NBC News called the sit-down “toothless” in its headline.

Movie Review – Boundaries (2018)

Boundaries, 2018.

Written and Directed by Shana Feste.

Starring Vera Farmiga, Christopher Plummer, Lewis MacDougall, Bobby Cannavale, Kristen Schaal, Christopher Lloyd, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Dolly Wells, Glenn Beck, Elizabeth Bowen, and Peter Fonda

Synopsis:

Laura and her son Henry are forced to drive her estranged, pot-dealing, carefree father Jack across country after being kicked out of a nursing home.

Boundaries isn’t a movie about second chances, it’s message is that the ones closest to us, especially family, should be given repeated opportunities at change (with a reasonable amount of time between screw-ups), with the understanding that they still might not better themselves, prompting us to make a judgment call on whether we want them around or not. Sony Pictures Classics offered critics a screening link for the film, so after enjoying watching it from a rather large laptop screen, I felt encouraged to watch it again since a theatrical
