61st London Film Festival Review – Call Me By Your Name (2017)

Call Me By Your Name, 2017.

Directed by Luca Guadagnino.

Starring Armie Hammer, Timothee Chalamet, Michael Stuhlbarg and Esther Garrel.


An American professor and his family are spending the summer at their Italian villa. His teenage son is captivated by the graduate student who arrives to work for his father. It’s a fascination that becomes mutual and grows into a love neither of them will ever forget.

Call Me By Your Name could so easily have been chosen for the Love Gala at this year’s London Film Festival, but they opted for On Chesil Beach instead. Whether it was the right decision remains to be seen, but director Luca Guadagnino’s story of the delicious agony of first love comes with a pedigree, although it doesn’t make a song and dance about it.

It’s written and produced by James Ivory. Yes, The James Ivory. He who,

‘Call Me By Your Name’ Is More Than Just A Sensual Pleasure [Nyff]

The steamy sexuality and physicality of “Call Me by Your Name” seems to be all anyone can talk about. The scene with the peach. The hottest volleyball game since “Top Gun.” Armie Hammer’s voice reading the audio book. And again, that peach scene. The normally chilly Walter Reade Theater felt oddly warm during a press and industry screening earlier this week, and it wasn’t just the Indian summer weather outside.

The Real Housewives of New York City Season 9 Episode 3 Review: A New Low

There's nothing quite like a New York City housewife when she leaves Manhattan behind for the weekend.

On The Real Housewives of New York City Season 9 Episode 3, it's time to go to Hamptons, and our favorite dynamic duos are all staying together at different houses.

Carole and Bethenny arrive first at Bethenny's house.

Bethenny: Isn't it like Indian Summer?

Carole: Well some call it global warming.

Permalink: Well some call it global warming. Added: April 19, 2017

It's three days away from the Presidential Election, and Carole cannot stop talking about it. Bethenny suggests day drinking, but I think Carole would rather tweet "I'm With Her" selfies. 

Sonja opens up to Tinsley about talking to the press about her ex-boyfriend, lover, friends with benefits Tom, and LuAnn getting mad at her for commenting about their relationship.

These ladies comment with the NY Post like they share men Tom.

They're also going to the Hamptons,

Feud: Bette and Joan Season 1 Episode 1 Review: Indian Summer

"Feuds are never about hate. Feuds are about pain. They're about pain." – Olivia de Havilland

"Dateline Los Angeles: Stars of the night sky tend to keep to fixed orbits and never interfere with one another. Seems things sometimes operate that way in Hollywood, too.

Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, stars of equal magnitude who ruled in motion pictures in the fabulous '30s, never got to know one another. Now, in the Indian Summer of their careers, they're about to." – Hedda Hopper

Those lines from Feud: Bette and Joan Season 1 Episode 1 perfectly summarize the pilot of what is sure to be a magnificent series about the legendary animosity between Joan Crawford and Bette Davis.

My love/hate relationship with Ryan Murphy continues with Feud. After viewing only one hour of the five made available to critics, I got the sense we're in for an experience much like that of The People vs.

Ed Catto and The New York Comic Con Newbie

Indian Summer, autumn’s first batch of orange-hued fallen leaves and New York Comic Con have all tumbled away, relegated to that odd intersection of fond memories and the comfortable knowledge of their inevitable return. The New York Comic Con, now the nation’s largest geek culture convention, seems to change each year. And after more than a decade of growth, it’s changing in many weird and wonderful ways.

I’ve been there from the beginning and, during the early years worked, on the show. We had a vision for the convention and it’s succeeded beyond our wildest dreams. And in many ways … it hasn’t.

The Big Picture

Each year on Thursday afternoon as the New York Comic Con bursts to life, ICV2’s Milton Greipp gathers industry leaders together to review the state of geek culture.

Comic Convention expert Rob Salkowitz was one speaker who addressed this business gathering.

Jeremy Irons Tells BAFTA Audience About Streep, De Niro and The ‘Creepy’ Characters of His Illustrious Career

Jeremy Irons Tells BAFTA Audience About Streep, De Niro and The ‘Creepy’ Characters of His Illustrious Career
Jeremy Irons is in many respects the quintessential English film actor. That’s not simply because of the honeyed diction and innate elegance, but the versatility that has enabled him to travel with ease between romantic leading man, edgy character actor and sinister villain, towards an Indian summer of ever-dependable supporting player.

Think James Mason. In fact, Irons and Mason even have a role in common – the riskiest of roles, Nabokov’s infamous pedophile Humbert Humbert, Mason most famously in Kubrick’s “Lolita” of 1962, Irons for Adrian Lyne in 1997. It’s difficult to imagine many Americans jumping at a character who came second in Time’s “Top 10 Worst Fictional Fathers,” or possessing the nuance necessary to make us almost like the man.

Again like many Brits, Irons is classically trained (at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School,

Karlovy Vary Film Review: ‘Zoology’

Karlovy Vary Film Review: ‘Zoology’
How can a lonely woman break out of a decades-long devolution into dowdiness and invisibility? Thereby hangs a tail in Russian director Ivan I. Tverdovsky’s second feature after his well-received “Corrections Class” in 2014. Following a downtrodden office worker who has inexplicably sprouted a long, fleshy tail and who experiences a brief Indian summer when she finds love and acceptance in the arms of a younger man, “Zoology,” however, is a bit of a muddle of metaphor and meaning. The overtly fable-like structure of the story compels us to search for various different allegorical readings — psychological, social, political — but Tverdovsky, who also co-wrote the screenplay, overloads his simple, provocative premise with too many clashing ideas, which blunts its potential impact and obscures its message, to the extent that the film ends up tripping over its own caudal appendage.

But the fault certainly does not lie with lead actress Natalia Pavlenkova

Master-clown Max Wall dies - archive, 23 May 1990

23 May 1990: The British comedian died after a long Indian summer of fame during which critics applied the praise he had always craved ‘genius’

Max Wall, last of the protean master-clowns of music hall, died early yesterday after a fall as he left his favourite restaurant, Simpson’s in the Strand.

He fractured his skull and did not regain consciousness. He was 82. ‘I suppose he had a nice ending, dining with friends and telling showbusiness stories,’ said his agent, Joan Pritchard.

Weatherman Pronounces Village Name "Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch" Flawlessly

Weatherman Pronounces Village Name
Hey, Al Roker! Can you pronounce this name? Sound it out below: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. No, our cat did not just walk across the keyboard. That is the name of a Wales village and if you can't pronounce it than what are you even doing, Roker?! Liam Dutton, the forecaster for Channel 4 News, was talking about the Indian Summer weather, and apparently Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwlll­lantysiliogogogoch was one of the warmest areas in the U.K. on Tuesday. Dutton, being Welsh himself, did not stutter, stammer or hesitate when he got to the pronunciation. He let it roll off his tongue like he says it all the damn time.   nullBoom....

Tell Us Your Top Three Summer-Camp Movies

  Right now is prime summer-camp time. No doubt there is some kid not far from you who is currently attending some kind of summer camp, making it the perfect time to reflect on past summer camps -- like the ones we've visited on the big screen. There are classics that show us the traditional camp experiences, including Meatballs, Little Darlings, Meatballs II, The Parent TrapMeatballs 4Ernest Goes to Camp and Lolita, as well as the horror flicks Friday the 13th and its sequels, and Sleepaway Camp and its sequels.

Review: 'Mad Men' - 'Lost Horizon': One for the road
A review of tonight's "Mad Men" coming up just as soon as I get The New York Times to print "Mein Kampf" on the front page... "This was a hell of a boat, you know?" -Roger There's a moment late in "Lost Horizon" that, if you've been on social media tonight, you've likely seen in gif form a few dozen times (or, like me, just kept it on in a loop in the background while writing about the episode). Peggy finally enters the McCann offices, Bert Cooper's infamous octopus painting under her arm, sunglasses concealing her hungover eyes, a cigarette dangling smugly from her lips. She has come a long, long way, baby, from the shy mouse whom Joan had to lead around the old Sterling Cooper office, and she is here to grab everything she's ever wanted, all on her way to one day having her name on

Mergers, Sales, and Coups: Every Big Change at Mad Men’s Sterling Cooper

Mergers, Sales, and Coups: Every Big Change at Mad Men’s Sterling Cooper
Once upon a time, Sterling Cooper was just a scrappy, one-floor ad agency started with seed money from Bert Cooper's sister Alice. (Alice Cooper. Yep.) And look at 'em now! Roger, Don, and the other surviving members of the squad are now in "advertising heaven" at McCann Erickson. Or at least that's what the McCann guy thinks. How did we get here? Journey with us through the long, tortured history of the agency — agencies? — we know and love.Don is made partner at Sterling Cooper. Back in season one, everything was peachy: Everybody worked at Sterling Cooper, and all was right in the world. (Except for all the racism and sexism and general oppressiveness.) Then, in season one, episode 10, "Long Weekend," Roger has a heart attack. Bert tries to rush him back to work in the following episode, "Indian Summer," but Roger winds up back on a gurney being

The Golden Compass: what went wrong?

With fantasy franchises having been so popular in recent years, why did Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials series stop before it got going?

A much beloved trilogy of fantasy novels, Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials was much praised for its rich, imaginative fantasy world, nuanced and ambiguous characters and powerful anti-religious themes. Critically acclaimed, award-laden bestsellers with a young heroine in the form of Lyra Bellacqua, the trilogy seemed an obvious choice to follow Harry Potter and Lord Of The Rings and become a blockbuster movie series.

New Line bought the rights after bringing Lord Of The Rings to the screen, hoping for a similar success. The two stories are very different High Fantasies though, and The Golden Compass contains concepts less familiar to audiences than wizards, monsters and swordplay. His Dark Materials was also occasionally categorised in shops as a children’s book, unlike Lord Of The Rings.

'The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' Falls Short of the Winsome Original

'The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' Falls Short of the Winsome Original
"The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" wasn’t just a surprise hit of 2012, it was a welcome one, in being a rare film about elderly people that had as much fun and sauciness as it did pathos. Its gentle mix of drama and comedy was delivered by a formidable array of British thespians, some remarkably in their 70s, using their life experience in a much more engaging manner than, say, the veterans of "The Expendables." So one certainly can’t begrudge a sequel, "The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," even one that begins to creak a little beneath its conceit. It’s again directed by John Madden and written by Ol Parker, now moving beyond the original source of Deborah Moggach’s novel. The original cast returns as the retired Brits discovering an Indian summer, fittingly in India, courtesy of a young entrepreneurial hotelier with a vision to “outsource old age
