Exclusive Interview: James Cosmo discusses The Pyramid Texts

Paul Risker chats with actor James Cosmo about The Pyramid Texts

“To be that man for those days that we filmed it and to go through that emotional journey was something that I’ll never experience again” reflects veteran screen actor James Cosmo on playing the old reminiscent boxer Ray in The Pyramid Texts.

In an empty boxing gym, Ray records a video for his estranged son, in which he looks back on his life, hoping to impart wisdom through his words. Written by Geoff Thompson, and directed by Paul and Ludwig Shammasian, the film merges Cosmo’s experience in front of the camera with the fresh voices the writer and his directors, for who this is their feature debut. It is not a truth conveyed by the film that impresses upon us that these these three fresh voices are experienced hands in narrative feature writing and filmmaking.

Indigo blue by Anne-Katrin Titze

On a beautiful Sunday afternoon at Soho House in New York, Hungry Hearts director Saverio Costanzo spoke with me about casting Adam Driver to star opposite Alba Rohrwacher in between Driver's work with Noah Baumbach on While We're Young and as a villain in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, directed by J.J. Abrams. David Lynch, Roman Polanski's Rosemary's Baby, Coney Island, the C.G. Jung deer, and the lure of an Indigo Child enter into our consciousness.

The small apartment on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, where Mina (Rohrwacher), Jude (Driver) and their newborn child live is a stone's throw from the Dakota building, home to another special baby. There is emotional intelligence, depth of perception, and a profound terror of being alive that connects both of these films.

Cosmopolis Reviews: Robert Pattinson Flawless

Gucci-clad Robert Pattinson, Cosmopolis I could be wrong, but expect David Cronenberg‘s Cosmopolis to win something at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Reviews haven’t been unanimously favorable for Cronenberg’s "ethical fable" about a (disastrous) day in the life of a New York City multibillionaire (Robert Pattinson) determined to get a haircut. But no matter. Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life was last year’s Palme d’Or winner despite a highly mixed reception. Robert Pattinson, in the process of shedding his Twilight image, has mostly earned extremely positive (and surprised) notices. [Check out the awesome Cosmopolis trailer.] Below are a translated snippets from a few French-language reviews. A chief complaint about Cosmopolis is that it’s too chatty. David Cronenberg reportedly wrote the screenplay in six days, keeping much of author Don DeLillo’s dialogue intact. In addition to Robert Pattinson, Cosmopolis features Sarah Gadon, Juliette Binoche, Samantha Morton, Paul Giamatti,

Court Stroud: 'Smash'-Mouth: Confronting Homophobia And Misogyny On The Set Of NBC's New Series
Angelica Huston's black bob swings back and forth, keeping time with the click of her heels on the sidewalk. As the Oscar-winning actress passes, she throws us a warm but impish smile and then fades into the nighttime air. Her departure cheers the crowd, which has been waiting in the cold and will finally be called to fill the ground floor of Vbh Luxury on New York's Upper East Side. The high-end showroom serves as an on-location site for Smash, the new NBC television show produced by Steven Spielberg about the birth of a Broadway musical.

Along with approximately 75 other people, I've been hired as background for a big party, which means we'll be seen but not heard in the episode, human props moved around to create an enthusiastic and festive atmosphere.

Michael Fassbender Talks Researching Carl Jung For 'A Dangerous Method'

Michael Fassbender recently took some time away from his endlessly busy 2011 to speak with The Playlist about his role as swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung in David Cronenberg’s “A Dangerous Method,” which opens in limited release this week. The story focuses on the early career of Jung -- considered the founder of analytical psychology -- at a period in his life when his career briefly intersected with Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen). But the story also brings a lesser known influence to light in Sabina Spielrein (Keira Knightley), a figure long lost to the annals of history who may have influenced the work of both Jung and, to a lesser extent, Freud.

Lars von Trier's "Melancholia"

  • MUBI
In conjunction with (or at least happening as the same time as) indieWIRE's redesign, Eric Kohn is launching a new biweekly feature, "Critical Consensus." The idea: he'll be talking with two critics about films currently in theaters, and he's starting off with a bang, discussing Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar (see the roundup, updated through today) and Lars von Trier's Melancholia with J Hoberman and Amy Taubin, both of whom admire both films. All three critics compare their first viewings of Melancholia in Cannes with their second viewing a few months later under less hectic conditions back in New York. Hoberman: "I was enthralled from the first images on; when the movie ended, I was amazed that von Trier had carried it off; it was a tour de force…. I'm not prepared to call Melancholia von Trier's best work, but I do think it's up there with Idiots and

Tiff 2011: A Dangerous Method Review

Perhaps the film I most anticipated at this year's Tiff, it stands to follow that David Cronenberg's fictionalized treatment of the interaction between Sigmund Freud, Carl Gustav Jung and Sabina Spielrein is my first major disappointment. But mine is not an objective position. For 20 years in my youth I was a full scholar with the San Francisco C.G. Jung Institute where I attended both public and professional seminars nearly every weekend. When others were going out to disco, I was soliciting the cooperation of my unconscious and circumambulating (like a slow snail) around dreams, which was of course only a hop, skip and a jump away from my current fascination with cinema. I recall that at the time there was a concerted effort to...
