‘sex, lies, and videotape,’ ‘Bull Durham,’ and More Joining the Criterion Collection in July
The Criterion Collection has announced its July titles, including Steven Soderbergh’s Palme d’Or–winning “sex, lies, and videotape” and Ron Shelton’s baseball classic “Bull Durham.” Also joining the Collection are King Hu’s wuxia masterwork “Dragon Inn,” Powell and Pressburger’s endlessly moving “A Matter of Life and Death,” and a new box set celebrating the collaboration between Marlene Dietrich and Josef von Sternberg. Full details below.

Bull Durham

“Former minor leaguer Ron Shelton hit a grand slam with his directorial debut, one of the most revered sports movies of all time. Durham Bulls devotee Annie Savoy (Susan Sarandon)-who every year takes a new player under her wing (and into her bed)-has singled out the loose-cannon pitching prospect Nuke Laloosh (Tim Robbins), a big-league talent with a rock-bottom maturity level. But she’s unable to shake Crash Davis (Kevin Costner), the veteran catcher brought in

Jane Fonda (‘Grace and Frankie’) could be Emmy winner again 34 years after ‘The Dollmaker’

Jane Fonda (‘Grace and Frankie’) could be Emmy winner again 34 years after ‘The Dollmaker’
Jane Fonda won her only Emmy for her searing performance as a World War II-era pioneer woman in the acclaimed 1984 telefilm “The Dollmaker.” At that time, she was one of those rare film stars to crossover to television. When she picked up her Emmy, she already had two Best Actress Oscars for “Klute” (1971) and “Coming Home” (1978) on her mantle. Since then, she has reaped four more Emmy bids, including last year for the third season of her Netflix comedy “Grace and Frankie,” but has yet to win again.

She lost her most recent Emmy race to Julie-Louis Dreyfus, who picked up her record sixth consecutive trophy for “Veep.” However, with that political satire taking a hiatus, Fonda could finally pick up a bookend Emmy. She will have formidable competition in the likes of Rachel Brosnahan (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”), Allison Janney (“Mom”) and co-star Lily Tomlin, among others.

Emmys 2018: Keep an eye on ‘Grace and Frankie’ in Best Comedy Series

To date, Netflix’s “Grace and Frankie” has not earned Best Comedy Series nominations at the Emmys or Golden Globes, nor appeared in the Best Comedy Ensemble line-up at the SAG Awards. Yet, the show, now in its fourth season, is something to keep a close eye on heading into the 2018 Emmys.

This season of “Grace and Frankie” found its title characters in a whirlwind of crises. Grace (Jane Fonda) battles a knee injury that leaves her with doubts over her new relationship with the younger Nick (Peter Gallagher). Meantime, Frankie (Lily Tomlin) discovers she has been declared legally dead, a bizarre development that leaves her pondering where life has taken her.

Over its first three seasons, “Grace and Frankie” has gained in Emmy nominations each year. After scoring one bid for Tomlin in 2015, it doubled that with nominations in Best Comedy Actress (Tomlin again) and Best TV Contemporary Costumes in 2016. Then,

'Submission' Review: Movie About Student-Teacher Affair Fails Gender Politics 101

'Submission' Review: Movie About Student-Teacher Affair Fails Gender Politics 101
A film about a male teacher getting it on with his female student ought to touch a nerve in the era of #MeToo. But Submission – despite valiant performances from Stanley Tucci and Addison Timlin as the parties involved – lacks the spark it needs to spring to life.

Tucci plays Ted Swenson, a prof who teaches creative writing at a second-rate New England college and fills classrooms on the success fumes from his acclaimed first book, concerning his father's fatal decision to light himself on fire to protest the war in Vietnam.

Based on Francine Prose's 2000 novel Blue Angel, inspired by Josef von Sternberg's 1930 film Der Blaue Engel, adapted from Heinrich Mann's book Professor Unrat from 1905, Submission links present with past. If Angela Argo in Richard Levine's Submission were to set out to do what Marlene Dietrich's Lola Lola did to Emil Jannings' Professor Immanuel Rath, what would that look like in the second decade of the 21st century?

‘Grace and Frankie’ Co-Creator on Season 5 Plans, When the Show Might End, and Why She’ll Never Kill Any of Her Lead Characters
[Editor’s note: Spoilers follow for the season finale of “Grace and Frankie” Season 4.]

Grace and Frankie” co-creator Marta Kauffman has been telling stories about life over 70 for four seasons now, but there’s no sign of the show running out of tales to tell, as evidenced by the announcement Wednesday of Netflix renewing the show for a fifth season.

“Every season, it becomes more and more special, because you know you have fewer and fewer left,” she said to IndieWire at Scad aTVfest in Atlanta. But that doesn’t mean there’s anything resembling a game plan for ending the show. Instead, Kauffman said that if Netflix gave her the option to keep the show going for as long as she wanted, “I’d probably tell them, ‘Let’s do it as long as it’s still comfortable for Jane and Lily.'”

It’s a fair consideration, given the current ages of stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin

Meryl Streep in ‘Music of the Heart’: A look back at her 12th Oscar nomination, the competition and the outcome

Meryl Streep in ‘Music of the Heart’: A look back at her 12th Oscar nomination, the competition and the outcome
This article marks Part 12 of the 21-part Gold Derby series analyzing Meryl Streep at the Oscars. Join us as we look back at Meryl Streep’s nominations, the performances that competed with her at the Academy Awards, the results of each race and the overall rankings of the contenders.

In 1977, while Meryl Streep was making her big screen debut with a small role in Fred Zinnemann‘s Oscar-winning “Julia,” young filmmaker Wes Craven was scaring the pants off moviegoers with his X-rated horror flick “The Hills Have Eyes.”

Seven years later, in 1984, Streep already had two Oscars under her belt, yet was putting fans to sleep with the tedious Robert De Niro romance “Falling in Love.” Meanwhile, Craven was at last breaking down the door into mainstream cinema, with his “A Nightmare on Elm Street” proving a sleeper hit and making burnt serial killer Freddy Krueger a household name.

‘Grace and Frankie’ Review: A Strong and Surprising Season 4 Dares to Face Death — and Gives It the Finger

‘Grace and Frankie’ Review: A Strong and Surprising Season 4 Dares to Face Death — and Gives It the Finger
When does a funny story become sad? Typically in television, this kind of question is framed around arrested development: A grown man is still acting like he’s in college, and certain events force him to look himself in the mirror and say, “Getting that drunk and acting that dumb isn’t funny anymore. It’s sad.”

But what if it’s not arrested development? What if it’s unstoppable regression? Continuing its fearless quest to address the anxieties associated with aging, “Grace and Frankie” dares to ask if its characters’ wild misadventures aren’t actually funny anymore. Maybe they’re scary. Maybe these two best friends are losing control of their minds, bodies, and lives. Maybe they don’t even know it’s happening, as it’s happening. Maybe they need help.
