‘At Eternity’s Gate’ Review: Willem Dafoe Is an Inspired Van Gogh in Julian Schnabel’s Impressionistic Masterwork — Venice
You hear him speak before you see him paint. The screen black, Vincent Van Gogh tells us what he wants — desires big and small, like earning the respect of his peers and eating a sandwich. It’s a bold way of opening a film about the iconic painter, which is expected with Willem Dafoe in front of the camera and Julian Schnabel behind it in an unconventional biopic that, at its best, is a masterwork worthy of Van Gogh.

The first real scene of “At Eternity’s Gate” is shot with a handheld camera hovering just inches from a woman’s face, as though we’re meant to be seeing her through Van Gogh’s eyes, our field of vision blurred at the edges. Just as the dialogue alternates between French and English,

As Dwayne Johnson and Joaquin Phoenix Play Disabled Roles, An Overlooked Community Debates Representation

As Dwayne Johnson and Joaquin Phoenix Play Disabled Roles, An Overlooked Community Debates Representation
Today is a rare day in Hollywood: We have two major stars, Dwayne Johnson and Joaquin Phoenix, releasing films in which they play disabled characters. In “Skyscraper,” Johnson’s alter ego undergoes a below-knee amputation following an opening-scene explosion; “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot” casts thrice Oscar-nominated Phoenix as John Callahan, the late artist who became quadraplegic in a car accident.

On-screen representation of disabilities is so infrequent it can seem like a fluke. According to the last U.S. Census, 19 percent of Americans have a disability, but a 2017 study from USC Annenberg’s Media, Diversity, & Social Change Initiative found that just 2.7 percent of all 2016 speaking roles included a discernible disability. So two in one week is progress, right?

Some disability rights advocates say: Nope. “We are over continually having non-disabled people trusted to tell our stories more than actual disabled actors,” said Rebecca Cokley,

The Mick EPs Reveal Sabrina's Fate, What We Might Have Seen in Season 3

The Mick EPs Reveal Sabrina's Fate, What We Might Have Seen in Season 3
For fans of The Mick, the only thing more devastating than the Fox comedy’s recent cancellation was the cliffhanger that brought the series to a close.

A refresher: The finale ended with Mickey and the gang huddled around a freshly electrocuted Sabrina, reeling from the news that the accident could have affected her cognitive ability and/or motor functions. It was a dark way to end the season, even for a show that once blew up an old lady with her own oxygen tank, but the show’s creators stand by it — mostly because they weren’t expecting to be cancelled.

Jeremy Strong on Transitioning to TV in HBO’s ‘Succession’
The Big Short” actor Jeremy Strong no longer primarily treads the boards. The stage vet has entered the TV scene in a big way, starring in HBO’s “Succession,” in which he plays troubled son Kendall Roy.

What was the transition from stage to television like?

Most of my heroes started out in theater, so I was always doing plays. The transition into film took longer than I wanted, but I am grateful for the years of hardship that I went through because they allowed me to connect with characters, in terms of adversity, in a way that I wouldn’t have otherwise.

How are you similar to Kendall Roy?

I relate to the desire to gain the love and respect of certain people, and that can lead you astray from your own nature. While we were filming this show, you couldn’t look at the news without reading something about the Murdochs,

‘Call Me by Your Name’ Screenwriter James Ivory Wants Daniel Day-Lewis to Come Out of Retirement for His Next Film

‘Call Me by Your Name’ Screenwriter James Ivory Wants Daniel Day-Lewis to Come Out of Retirement for His Next Film
James Ivory became one of the most acclaimed writer/directors of his generation after making such films as “A Room with a View” and “The Remains of the Day,” but it wasn’t a Merchant Ivory film that won him an Oscar. That would be “Call Me by Your Name,” the screenplay for which Ivory adapted from André Aciman’s novel of the same name. Now 90, he has his sights set on at least two new projects — and wants Daniel Day-Lewis to come out of self-imposed retirement for one of them.

Ivory is currently writing “The Judge’s Will,” based on longtime collaborator Ruth Prawer Jhabvala’s short story of the same name, for director Alexander Payne; he isn’t content to simply write, however: “I’d also been thinking about doing an adaptation of the novel ‘Coral Glynn’ by Peter Cameron, which I’d like to direct, set in England in the 1950s,

Mexico’s ArteCaryes Film and Arts Festival Marries Cinema With Mother Nature

  • Variety
Nestled amidst a quiet, remote strip between Puerta Vallarta and Manzanillo on Jalisco, Mexico’s Pacific coast, Costa Careyes is a luxury resort paradise, lush with jungle and surf and bright, candy-colored casitas. Founded by Italian banker Gian Franco Brignone in 1968, Careyes has since become a coveted vacation spot for the elite traveler — Bill and Melinda Gates, Heidi Klum and Cindy Crawford have all been guests here — complete with a polo club, private villas and two oceanfront castles with moat-like infinity pools that blend in with the azure sky. With its bohemian flair and Mediterranean-esque architecture, the tropical hideaway is also home to ArteCareyes Film and Arts Festival, an annual gathering that celebrates film, photography, music and contemporary art from Latin America and around the world.

Entering its eighth year, the strictly invite-only event, running April 26-30, is not your typical film fest. Held in collaboration with the Careyes Foundation,

Acting Legend Daniel Day-Lewis Was Just Caught Using a Flip Phone and the Internet Loved It

It's not Daniel Day-Lewis' performances in My Left Foot, There Will Be Blood, or Lincoln that are delighting fans today. It's his use of a flip phone — a Motorola Razr, to be exact. "Daniel Day-Lewis is on my train and casually just looking at his flip phone," journalist Karen Han tweeted on the afternoon of Thursday, April 5. Eight minutes later, she posted a photo "for everyone who asked for pictorial evidence." Twitter, predictably, had a field day with this revelation about the British actor. "Of course he has a flip phone," tweeted @MaxThegGirl. "When you said flip phone, I needed no evidence," added @GastronautJones. "It's method acting training for his next film [in] which he plays a commuter in 2007," quipped @TheSavagePen. "My man out here using a [darn] Razr in the year 2018?" wrote @IntoTheCrevasse. for everyone who asked for pictorial evidence pic.twitter.com/D4rHXPljZp— karen han (@karenyhan) April 5, 2018 Other

‘Bob Weinstein on the line. He says he’s from Buffalo.’ A First-Person Perspective on the Early Years of Miramax Films

The Weinstein Company assets will be purchased by the Ron Burkle-backed Maria Contreras-Sweet, and all things Weinstein will be removed from whatever remains. After a nearly four-decade run, the legacy of the most successful specialized distributor in history comes down to the last five tumultuous months that mark an inglorious (if not inglourious) end.

The Weinsteins made its first big Oscar splash in 1990 with “My Left Foot,” but they’d already been around for some time. Long before I covered box office for IndieWire, I spent 30 years as a film buyer, booking for theaters — and was a first-hand witness to Harvey and Bob Weinstein’s rise. Here’s my perspective on how they grew from a small outlier to an indie powerhouse.

“Bob Weinstein on the line. He says he’s from Buffalo.”

Back in 1981, phone calls were announced by a receptionist. As a young film buyer for M&R Theaters,

Oscars flashback: Daniel Day-Lewis (‘Lincoln’) sets record with 3rd win as Best Actor [Watch]
After his sweeping victory with “There Will Be Blood” in 2007, many thought Daniel Day-Lewis had reached his zenith. What could top that performance?

In 2012 he was given the title role in Steven Spielberg’s epic “Lincoln.” Once again he immersed himself in the role, spending an entire year on research of Abraham Lincoln alone. For this performance as America’s greatest statesmen, Day-Lewis became the first and only winner of three Best Actor Academy Awards, ranking behind only Katharine Hepburn for the most acting Oscar wins in a lead category (she has four).

Watch the video above as the only living actress with three acting wins, Meryl Streep, presents an emotional Day-Lewis with the trophy at the 2013 ceremony.

Oscars flashback: Daniel Day-Lewis bows before queen Helen Mirren for 2nd Best Actor win [Watch]
Exactly 10 years ago at the 80th Academy Awards, Daniel Day-Lewis won his second Oscar as Best Actor. As he arrived on stage, he bowed before “queen” Helen Mirren as she used the statuette to knight him for his victory in “There Will Be Blood” (watch the video above).

After his surprise Oscar win for “My Left Foot” at the 1990 ceremony almost two decades earlier, Day-Lewis had become an official A-List star. He followed with memorable performances throughout the early 1990s, including “The Last of the Mohicans” and Martin Scorsese’s “The Age of Innocence.” He then received an additional Oscar nomination for “In the Name of the Father,” playing the wrongfully convicted Gerry Conlin but lost the award to Tom Hanks for “Philadelphia.”

BAFTAs 2018: A goodbye trophy for Daniel Day-Lewis (‘Phantom Thread’) would tie the BAFTA record

BAFTAs 2018: A goodbye trophy for Daniel Day-Lewis (‘Phantom Thread’) would tie the BAFTA record
Phantom Thread” is expected to be the last film in Daniel Day-Lewis’s illustrious career as he has announced his plan to retire from acting. Could the Englishman get a farewell hug at the BAFTA Awards? Should he win Best Actor he would walk away from the industry tying the all-time record for most wins.

Up until 1967 the BAFTA Film Awards actually handed out two acting trophies per category: one to a British performer and the other to a foreigner. The current record is five wins and is held by a trio of acclaimed Brits: Maggie Smith, Peter Finch and Judi Dench — Dench technically has six competitive wins if you count the now-defunct category of Most Promising Newcomer, which she won for “Four in the Morning” (1965).

Finch won both the BAFTA and Oscar together just once: Best Actor for “Network” (1976); unfortunately, both of those victories were posthumous as he passed
