PopPolitics: Why Trump Is Left Out of HBO’s ‘John McCain: For Whom the Bell Tolls’ (Listen)

  • Variety
Washington — The filmmakers behind the HBO documentary “John McCain: For Whom the Bell Tolls” interview family, friends, rivals and colleagues to capture the life of the Arizona senator, who is now battling brain cancer.

But the project, which debuts this weekend, does not include President Donald Trump. In hours of interviews, the filmmakers asked McCain about Trump, but chose not to dwell on the fissures between the two.

“It sucks the air out of the room and we wanted the attention to be on John,” Teddy Kunhardt, who made the film along with his brother George and father Peter, tells Variety‘s “PopPolitics” on SiriusXM. “When we walked around Arizona, he said something along the lines of ‘This is my last fight.’ We assumed he meant cancer. He said it is not about cancer. It is about bringing the Senate back to regular order, about working together in the Senate.

The Greatest Movie Music Of All Time

We’re heading into movie award season in Hollywood and around the world. There are lots of ingredients that go into making a successful film: an exciting and original script, a skillful director, and a lead actor and actress who put their heart and soul into a role. Add these together and you might get good box office sales and even pick up an award or two, but if you want a movie to be remembered for all time it needs one other ingredient: brilliant music. That’s certainly what these three films have!

The Magician Behind James Bond

Okay, so the first choice on our list isn’t a single movie but a whole series of them, but they are all known for their soundtrack as much as for their thrill-a-minute scripts. There are currently 25 James Bond films (if you count David Niven’s ‘Casino Royale’), each with its own theme tune.

Will ‘The Shape of Water’ be the ninth Best Picture Oscar champ not to win any of its three-plus acting nominations?

Will ‘The Shape of Water’ be the ninth Best Picture Oscar champ not to win any of its three-plus acting nominations?
The Shape of Water” is one of two Best Picture Oscar nominees with three acting nominations — the other being “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” — but star Sally Hawkins and supporting players Octavia Spencer and Richard Jenkins are not predicted to win any of them. If they indeed go 0-3 on Sunday and “The Shape of Water” takes the top prize, the fantasy drama will join eight other Best Picture champs that did not convert any of its three-plus acting nominations into wins.

“Birdman” (2014) was the most recent Best Picture winner not to carry an acting award from at least three nominations, as Michael Keaton, Emma Stone and Edward Norton fell to Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory of Everything”), Patricia Arquette (“Boyhood”) and J.K. Simmons (“Whiplash”), respectively. Arquette and Simmons were the supporting frontrunners all season, but Keaton was locked in a tight Best Actor race with Redmayne until the SAG Awards

No Orchids for Miss Blandish

Devotees of crime and film noir will get a kick out of this Brit attempt to capture the American style, that now comes off as screamingly funny. It was both a huge hit and a big scandal in London, 1948, where the censors came down hard on the film’s flagrant immorality and over-the-top violence. Former pre-Code second-banana thug Jack La Rue tries hard to be Humphrey Bogart. Leading lady Linden Travers’ role is as non-pc now as it was then: an heiress falls in love with the gangster, who has raped her, because she likes it. But the film’s maladroit hardboiled dialogue is hilarious fun.

2018 Oscars: Does Best Picture champ have to win an acting award first?

2018 Oscars: Does Best Picture champ have to win an acting award first?
The Shape of Water” numbers three acting bids among its leading 13 Academy Awards nominations for lead Sally Hawkins and supporting players Richard Jenkins and Octavia Spencer. According to our exclusive Oscar odds none of them is predicted to win on March 4. Should that scenario play out, does that mean that their film won’t win Best Picture?

Not so fast.

While 53 of the 89 Best Picture champs to date include an Oscar-winning performance, 36 of them (40%) did not win any acting awards. And among those three dozen winners are four of the eight films — “The Hurt Locker” (2009), “Argo” (2012), “Birdman” (2015) and “Spotlight” (2016) — decided by preferential ballot under the newly expanded slate of Best Picture nominees.

Surprisingly, an even dozen of the Best Picture winners did not even reap any acting nominations. That is welcome news for “Arrival,” which does not number an acting bid among its eight nominations. However, four of those films

‘Wind River’ Blu-ray Review

Stars: Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Gil Birmingham, Graham Greene, Jon Bernthal, Julia Jones, Kelsey Asbille, James Jordan | Written and Directed by Taylor Sheridan

Avengers co-stars Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen headline this snowbound mystery thriller from Taylor Sheridan, the writer of Sicario and Hell or High Water. Gripping and moving in equal measure, it’s being billed as Sheridan’s “proper” directorial debut, which probably says everything you need to know about his actual debut, the little-seen 2011 horror flick Vile.

Set in the remote Wind River Reservation in Wyoming, the film opens with a young Native American woman (Kelsey Asbille) running for her life, barefoot, in sub-zero conditions in the wintery wilderness. When she’s found, frozen to death, an autopsy reveals that she was raped, prompting the arrival of Vegas-based FBI agent Jane Banner (Olsen), who teams up with Native American sheriff Ben (Greene) to investigate.

However, Banner quickly

Riverdale season 2 episode 11 review: The Wrestler

Chris Cummins Jan 25, 2018

Archie hits the mat while a town-wide Civil War heats up in a dynamic outing of Riverdale. Spoilers ahead in our review...

This review contains spoilers.

2.11 The Wrestler

Let's recap things going from most to least interesting. At the start of tonight's episode, Jughead muses that in Riverdale "everything was the same and nothing was the same." He does this because, well, he's a terrible writer who isn't above aping Dickens' style to be profound. But also the ongoing battle between Riverdale's North and South Sides has turned his hometown into a, wink wink, tale of two cities, with seemingly everyone against the Serpents.

You see, it's time for the town's Pickens Day ceremonies that celebrate the Founding Father of the Sweetwater Valley, General Augustus Edward Pickens.

Crime and Punishment: Close-Up on "Brighton Rock"

  • MUBI
Close-Up is a feature that spotlights films now playing on Mubi. John Boulting's Brighton Rock (1947) is showing December 23, 2017 - January 22, 2018 on Mubi in the United States. There’s a shadow cast over the sun-kissed, seaside resort of Brighton. In 1935, a vulnerable time between two world wars, a noirish stain of violent gangsterdom has contaminated the fun and frivolity of the town’s tourist trade. But that’s largely behind the scenes. In Brighton Rock, a distinctive 1947 British feature, the slums that harbor such murderous criminality are kept under wraps, cloaked by the blinding, warm, soaking sun. Based on Graham Greene’s 1938 novel of the same name, and directed by John Boulting (producing duties went to Boulting brother Roy, though the two would often switch roles for other films), this superb picture discloses with penetrating clarity an emotional street life teeming beneath the veneer of amusement park gaiety.This concealed corruption is made semi-public,
