The Best Movie Trilogies Ever Made — IndieWire Critics Survey

The Best Movie Trilogies Ever Made — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In honor of “The Trip to Spain,” what is the best movie trilogy?

Richard Brody (@tnyfrontrow), The New Yorker

Far be it from me to choose between Antonioni’s non-trilogy “L’Avventura,” “La Notte,” and “L’Eclisse” and Kiarostami’s explicitly-denied “Koker” trilogy of “Where Is the Friend’s Home?,” “Life and Nothing More,” and “Through the Olive Trees” (and I’m tempted to make a trilogy of trilogies with Carl Theodor Dreyer’s “Day of Wrath,” “Ordet,” and “Gertrud”), but if I put Kiarostami’s films first, it’s because he puts their very creation into the action. Reflexivity isn’t a

‘The Affair’ Season 3 Finale: Hard Numbers Reveal Whose Pov Matters Most
Showtime’s “The Affair” has proven itself to be an intriguing character study for three seasons now — but it’s time to stop pretending that it’s an ensemble drama.

When the Golden Globe-winning series began in Season 1, its daring approach to splitting the characters’ points-of-view created a unique approach to drama, opening itself up to plenty of discussion about subjective versus objective truth, especially when it comes to how men and women might see things differently.

Over the course of the first season, as viewers followed the story of Noah (Dominic West) and Alison (Ruth Wilson), the series very much felt split down the middle, with equal balance between the show’s dual perspectives. However, this left other supporting characters out of the mix. When Season 2 began introducing the perspectives of Helen (Maura Tierney) and

Showtime Renews ‘The Affair’ for Season 4
Showtime has picked up “The Affair” for a fourth season, network president and CEO David Nevins announced Monday afternoon at the TCA winter press tour in Pasadena. The news comes just a few weeks before the series’ Season 3 finale on Jan. 29.

Season 3 picked up three years after Noah’s (Dominic West) shocking admission of guilt at his murder trial and introduced a fifth perspective in Irene Jacob’s Juliette Le Gall. Noah attempted to restart his life, but the damage wrought by his past decisions has made him a ghost of his former self. Alison (Ruth Wilson) has been raising daughter Joanie alongside Cole (Joshua Jackson) and Luisa (Catalina Sandino Moreno) in Montauk, but Alison’s past continues to rear its ugly head as Cole and Luisa attempt to build their own future.

For Helen (Maura Tierney), life appears to continue on, but just below the surface of a successful business and a bustling home lies uncertainty

Remote Controlled: ‘The Affair’ Boss Sarah Treem on What’s Ahead for Season 3, the Paris Finale

This week’s episode features Variety executive editor of TV Debra Birnbaum in conversation with Sarah Treem, co-creator and executive producer of Showtime’s “The Affair,” now in its third season.

When she pitched the idea of heading to France to Showtime, “I don’t know if they thought I was serious for a while,” she says with a laugh. “But I think a lot of it comes down to money at the end of the day, and weirdly enough, it turned out to be cheaper to shoot in Paris.”

Irène Jacob: The Hollywood Interview

Irène Jacob Cuts Deep

By Alex Simon

French-Swiss actress Irène Jacob cemented her status as one of her generation’s greatest talents through her work with legendary Polish director Krzysztof Kieślowski: The Double Life of Veronique (1991, for which she was awarded Best Actress at Cannes) and the final chapter of his Three Colors Trilogy, Red (1994).

Jacob comes from an accomplished family: her father Maurice was a renowned French physicist, her mother a successful psychotherapist, and her three brothers are composed of two scientists and a musician. After making her film debut in Louis Malle’s Au Revoir Les Enfants in 1987, Jacob has literally not stopped working. Her latest film, written and directed by her co-star Arnaud Viard, is Paris Love Cut, Viard’s semi-autobiographical tale of a filmmaker trying to balance his personal life, career and sanity in an increasingly shifting landscape. Jacob is delightful as Viard’s very patient (and very pregnant) fiancée.

The Affair Season 3 Review

Three episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

The Affair‘s near-flawless navigation through a seismic, necessary genre shift – one that outstandingly reshaped this initial romantic drama into a crime thriller of sorts at the onset of season 2 – unequivocally jumpstarted the show’s faint pulse following the conclusion of its first, inimitable season. The most notable alteration was its expansion from an exclusively dual Pov narrative in season 1 to the inclusion of an additional, important pair of character perspectives in its second season. These appendages unlocked a sea of possibilities for The Affair, most important of which was a range that extended beyond the confines of its embryonic storyline. Now, a season on from the preliminary tinkering, The Affair has once again modified for the better.

What once felt like a modern re-imagining of Romeo and Juliet (complete with feuding families), in season 1, has dissipated. The similarities between Shakespeare’s tragedy

‘The Affair’ Season 3 Review: Showtime’s Drama Still Intrigues, Despite Its Worst Character

‘The Affair’ Season 3 Review: Showtime’s Drama Still Intrigues, Despite Its Worst Character
Because “The Affair” is not a show that takes a delicate approach to discussing or depicting sex, the simplest way to approach Season 3 of Showtime’s complex relationship drama is like this: Do you want to fuck Noah Soloway? Because if the answer is no, you might struggle with the new season.

The series has always functioned largely as an ensemble drama, led by Dominic West and Ruth Wilson as Noah and Alison, two people who imploded their respective marriages for newfound passion. But while the first season very formally balanced the show’s switchoffs in points-of-view between Noah and Alison (occasionally switching the order in which we saw them), in many ways the show has always felt oddly driven by Noah in particular.

And that leads us to the central question of the episodes made available to critics prior to Season 3’s premiere. With three episodes to evaluate, theoretically

Film Review: ‘Eternity’ (Éternité)

Film Review: ‘Eternity’ (Éternité)
“He not busy being born is busy dying.” Bob Dylan’s oft-quoted 1965 lyric could well serve as a plot summary for Vietnamese director Tran Anh Hung’s first French-language feature, “Éternité,” which trains a painterly eye (and a fetish for immaculate production design) on three generations of an enormous aristocratic family that stays busy doing little else. Featuring an embarrassment of great actresses (Audrey Tautou, Mélanie Laurent, Bérénice Bejo, Irène Jacob) near-silently emoting for the camera as their characters process constant birth and death for the better part of two hours, “Éternité” is a meditative, gorgeous-looking film imbued with such gentle sensitivity that it’s difficult to dislike. Yet the experience of watching it is much like sitting in an opulent garden café on a glorious spring morning, waiting for a meal that never arrives.

Set to the dulcet tones of birdsong and classical piano (Bach and Debussy especially), the
