Andrea Luka Zimmerman Introduces Her Film "Erase and Forget"

Andrew Luka Zimmerman's Erase and Forget (2017) is exclusively showing July 16 - August 15, 2018 on Mubi.The making of this film is perhaps as unconventional as the character through which the film explores its subject matter and themes, sadly all too relevant again today. It took me over ten years to make, against constantly changing and challenging odds. Ultimately, however, the independence that came from this way of working was important, to be able properly to explore the issues the film raises, in a way that hopes to open up debate rather than to fix it. This is why I don’t want, in this short introduction, to talk too much about how and why the film’s strategies are working, as I’d rather audiences find their own readings of the layered and sometimes seemingly contradictory material presented. The film, after all, is as much about representations, about the numerous forms

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’: The Season 2 Finale Showed Us What Resistance Can Look Like, But Needs to Swing Big In Season 3

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’: The Season 2 Finale Showed Us What Resistance Can Look Like, But Needs to Swing Big In Season 3
[Editor’s note: The following contains spoilers for “The Handmaid’s Tale” Season 2 Episode 13, “The Word.”]

Dedicated TV fans know this to be a true fact: plenty of shows can have a great first season, but the make-or-break year is Season 2. Season 2 is when the plot has to move beyond the premise, while the actors have to push past tropes to really unlock the truths of their characters. Season 2 reveals the flaws of a series, strips them bare, and also serves as the proving ground for the show’s future.

So, after watching the season finale of “The Handmaid’s Tale,” it’s easy to say this: While this wasn’t a perfect season of television, it without a doubt proved itself to be a show with legs, one that remains exciting to track even as the unsettling darkness persists.

Looking back over the course of the season, there’s not a single episode that really dragged down the story, and the last half

The Handmaid's Tale Season 2 Episode 8 Review: Women's Work

When you're in the throes of life in Gilead and privy to most everything that goes on there, the problems with its basic premise start shooting up like weeds.

At least that's the feeling Serena seems to be getting on The Handmaid's Tale Season 2 Episode 8 as she grows closer to June and the realization she may one day be raising June's child as her own.

Good ol' Commander Fred arrives home just in the nick of time to try to beat the newfound spirit out of his flourishing wife, but I'm holding tight to some words he said sinking into that fine brain of hers.

The Handmaid's Tale Season 2 is aggressively attacking issues about women's rights all over the darn place, and I love it with every fiber of my being.

It's in the back of my mind that a lesser show would want to take any progress made and

(We’re going to kickstart our weekly The Handmaid’s Tale review by answering one simple question: Who suffered the most?)

The Handmaid's Tale Recap: Has the Uprising Finally Begun?
Need to catch up? Check out the previous The Handmaid’s Tale recap here.

Though this week’s installment of The Handmaid’s Tale is titled “First Blood,” sadly, it does not depict June tying a bandana around her head, Rambo-style, and meting out revenge to those who have hurt her. (To be fair, that likely would have to be a two- or three- or 10-part episode, right?)

But that doesn’t mean that someone else doesn’t go to extreme measures to communicate her dissatisfaction for Gilead’s regime. And while in real life I do not condone violence,

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Boss and Star on the Resistance’s Act of Violence
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not yet watched “First Blood,” the sixth episode of the second season of “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

This season of “The Handmaid’s Tale” has been an explosive one, and the sixth episode lived up to that promise, ending with a bang — literally as the second Ofglen the show has introduced (Tattiawna Jones) walked into a meeting strapped with a suicide vest and blew herself up, along with a number of handmaids and commanders.

An explosive ending throws an otherwise engrossing Handmaid's Tale off balance

It’s an odd war that Serena Joy and June wage in “First Blood,” an often excellent but ultimately baffling hour of The Handmaid’s Tale. It begins when Serena Joy, scared and guilty, literally removes the wall that separates her from the woman carrying “her” baby, giving her a chance to see it on an ultrasound monitor.…

Stallone Returning As Rambo

  • CinemaRetro
Deadline Hollywood reports that Sylvester Stallone intends to revive the character of Rambo once again in a film tentatively labeled "Rambo 5" (we hope they come up with something a bit more creative.) The character first appeared in 1982 in the film "First Blood" and has since been seen in four sequels, the last being released in 2008. For the latest film, Stallone seems to be tapping into some Trumpian angles, with Rambo taking on a Mexican drug cartel. Stallone is said to be working on the script now but according to Deadline, he will apparently not be directing this entry in the series. It's hoped that the film will start shooting in September.

Sylvester Stallone To Face The Mexican Cartel In Rambo 5

The Expendables may or may not be returning for a fourth chapter, but those in need of a Sylvester Stallone fix breathed a sigh of relief earlier this weekend.

That’s because Deadline revealed that John Rambo has unfinished business in the Indochina Peninsula. The online outlet reported yesterday that Avi Lerner’s Millennium, a subsidiary of Nu Image, will be launching sales for a fifth instalment in the Rambo franchise at Cannes later this month.

Most importantly, Sylvester Stallone will be reprising his role as John Rambo and is believed to be working on the script. However, it appears that the three-time Academy Award nominee will not be directing the picture, despite having helmed the franchise’s fourth and last instalment in 2008.

Stallone’s participation has yet to be confirmed by representatives, but with a tentative shoot date set for September of this year, expect confirmation to arrive shortly.

Sylvester Stallone Will Battle A Mexican Drug Cartel in Rambo 5

Just like in all four of his films, it seems impossible for anyone to kill off John Rambo. So it comes as little surprise that Sylvester Stallone is pretty close to adding a fifth chapter to the Rambo saga.

It has not been confirmed by Stallone's reps but Deadline Hollywood reports that Millennium Films has already launched sales on the project in Cannes revealing a tentative shoot date for September of this year. Stallone is also said to be currently working on the script.

This new movie will be the fifth in the very lucrative franchise. And follows Rambo's struggles when the daughter of one of his friends is kidnapped. Rambo, who has been working on a ranch, is forced to cross the U.S.-Mexican border and face the full force of one of Mexico’s most violent and vicious cartels. Something tells me, he's going to be just fine.

New Trailer For John Travolta's True Crime Mafia Biopic Gotti

"This life of ours is a wonderful life... if you can get away with it."

We've got a new trailer for John Travolta's upcoming crime drama Gotti, which tells the story of the rise and fall of one of the most famous mafia bosses of all time, John Gotti. Travolta takes on the role of the infamous 'Teflon Don' and it looks like he gives a solid performance. Gotti seemed like a bit of an over-the-top kind of guy and Travolta nails that here. This looks like the best film project that the actor has been a part of in a long time.

Gotti follows infamous crime boss John Gotti’s (Travolta) rise to become the “Teflon Don” of the Gambino Crime Family in New York City. Spanning three decades and recounted by his son John Jr. (Spencer Lofranco), Gotti examines Gotti’s tumultuous life as he and his
