Chicago Critics Film Festival 2018 Review – First Reformed

First Reformed, 2018.

Written and Directed by Paul Schrader.

Starring Ethan Hawke, Amanda Seyfried, Cedric the Entertainer, Philip Ettinger, Michael Gaston, Victoria Hill, and Van Hansis.

Synopsis:

A former military chaplain is wracked by grief over the death of his son. Mary is a member of his church whose husband, a radical environmentalist, commits suicide, setting the plot in motion.

Hope and despair is the equivalent to the metaphorically persuasive angel and the devil on the shoulders of one of God’s lonely souls, a pastor at the titular First Reformed church. The establishment is about to celebrate its 250th anniversary regardless of the fact that attendance has gone the way of the dodo (among other things like the organ not working and needing replacement parts) and is now more of a small tourist attraction, but it’s still something Toller is passionate about, possibly to the point of obsession considering

CBS has released the first trailer for the series which stars Cedric the Entertainer, Max Greenfield, Tichina ArnoldSheaun McKinney, Marcel Spears, Dreama Walker and Hank Greenspan. 

The premise follows the Johnson family who moves to a deprived Los Angeles neighborhood and find themselves scrutinized because of how nice they appear to be.

CBS Fall lineup is looking pretty darn good

  • Cinelinx
Well at long last it’s the CBS upfronts, and they’ll be bringing us 9 new shows for the 2018-2019 season with 6 of them released in the fall and the others as mid-season replacements. For now, we’re just going to concentrate on Fall shows as we’ve done so far.

So, their Monday lineup brings us 3 new shows starting with, The Neighborhood. Cedric the Entertainer stars as an opinionated neighbor in a comedy about what happens when the friendliest guy in the Midwest moves his family to a neighborhood in Los Angeles where not everyone looks like him or appreciates his extreme neighborliness. When Dave Johnson (Max Greenfield) and his family arrive from Michigan, they’re unfazed that their new dream home is located in a community quite different from their small town. However, their opinionated next-door neighbor, Calvin Butler (Cedric the Entertainer), is wary of the newcomers, certain

‘First Reformed’ Film Review: Paul Schrader and Ethan Hawke Channel Robert Bresson

‘First Reformed’ Film Review: Paul Schrader and Ethan Hawke Channel Robert Bresson
Before he wrote and directed movies, Paul Schrader was a film critic, best known for his book “Transcendental Style in Film: Ozu, Bresson, Dreyer.” Director Robert Bresson’s “Diary of a Country Priest” has always been a key film for Schrader, with Bresson’s ascetic Catholicism mirroring Schrader’s fully-absorbed Calvinism. And now Schrader has made “First Reformed,” a film that even freshman film students will be able to easily connect to this influential earlier movie.

First Reformed” is about a country priest, and he keeps a diary. And, like the hero of Bresson’s film (and the Georges Bernanos novel on which it is based), he’s got stomach cancer.

There’s more than homage going on here, though. As Schrader’s hero takes a bleaker look at life, and considers committing an extreme act as a desperate attempt to find resonance and morality in the world, he stands

5 Takeaways From CBS’ Upfront

CBS kept broadcast week of upfronts rolling on Wednesday with its presentation at Carnegie Hall. Here are the five key takeaways:

1. Leslie Moonves is the CBS brand.

CBS Corp. CEO Leslie Moonves took the stage and received a standing ovation from a sizable portion of the crowd, with others cheering and whistling. It was not a typical upfront reception for a TV exec. “So how’s your week been?” Moonves joked as he kicked off his pitch to advertisers.

Moonves’ week has seen him engage CBS’ controlling shareholder Shari Redstone in a shocking fight with the company’s future, and his own,

There are powerhouse movies that knock you for a loop and take weeks to recover from – and then there is Paul Schrader's First Reformed. Not only is this faith-in-crisis drama one of the legendary writer-director's most incendiary films ever, it's one of the year's very best – a cinematic whirlwind that leaves you both exhilarated and spent. Like the screenplays he wrote for Martin Scorsese (notably Taxi Driver) and the tormented works he's made about the wages of sin (Hardcore, American Gigolo, The Comfort of Strangers, Auto Focus), Schrader – raised

Spotlight on the Stars: Ethan Hawke

If you’re a fan of cinema, chances are, you’re also a fan of Ethan Hawke. The multi-hyphenate actor/writer/director has made a career out of exploring interesting avenues. As stated once before in a look at the man, there seems to be almost nothing that Hawke can not do. He’s directed films (including a documentary), written novels, starred in tiny indies, large scale movies, and everything in between. He’s likely best known for his collaborations with Richard Linklater, but they hardly define the man. A four time Academy Award nominee, he’s a perfect candidate for a Spotlight piece. After all, if he ever gets to a fifth Oscar nomination without a win, he’ll be hugely overdue for a statue. Hawke’s new film is, of course, First Reformed, which pairs him with filmmaker Paul Schrader. The movie is described cryptically as follows on
