My Friend Dahmer: is it time to stop glamorising the serial killer?

The new film about Jeffrey Dahmer may be an unglamorous portrayal of a damaged soul - but it still adds to the legend

My Friend Dahmer is about as unglamorous a serial-killer movie as you could hope for: it doesn’t even feature any murders. Instead, it lays out the warning signs that all was not right with the teenage Jeffrey Dahmer: his unstable parents, his repressed sexuality, his high-school victimisation, his unwholesome interest in anatomy.

And yet, by its very existence, the movie can’t help but glamorise its subject, who went on to variously rape, murder, dismember, violate and cannibalise his 17 male victims. It doesn’t matter if you portray them as damaged souls or psychopaths; you’re still adding to the legend. Faced with this realisation, much of our current serial-killer fare has cast realism aside to embrace the glamour. That was certainly true of Ryan Murphy

Cannes Film Review: John Travolta in ‘Gotti’

Cannes Film Review: John Travolta in ‘Gotti’
Shame on Cannes. In what appears to be a deal with the devil, or one made with a gun to the back of his head, Cannes director Thierry Frémaux inexplicably agreed to give “Gotti” — the myth-building, record-cleansing inside story of notorious Gotham mob boss John Gotti, as seen by his oldest son — a spot at the prestigious film festival … if you can call a single screening in the festival’s smallest official venue, the Salle Buñuel, which seats fewer than 300, a proper world premiere.

It’s certainly a far cry from the treatment John Travolta received 24 years earlier, when “Pulp Fiction” bowed in competition in the massive Lumière theater downstairs, but no doubt the price of convincing the actor to participate in the following day’s events, which included a master class and beachside screening of “Grease.” Though it was projected without the festival’s red-carpet trailer beforehand, Frémaux introduced the film personally,

2018 Cannes Film Festival: Oscars be next for ‘Shoplifters’ and ‘BlacKkKlansman’?

2018 Cannes Film Festival: Oscars be next for ‘Shoplifters’ and ‘BlacKkKlansman’?
The Cannes Film Festival just wrapped up its 71st edition and the film with the biggest Oscar potential got a big boost at the closing ceremony. Spike Lee’s, “BlacKkKlansman,” the true story of an African-American cop who infiltrated the Kkk, took home the Grand Prix, the second highest prize of the festival. It was Lee’s first time competing on the Croisette since 1991 when “Jungle Fever” was in competition and was a bit of retribution for Lee after his widely acclaimed 1989 film, “Do the Right Thing,” received nothing from the jury.

If “BlacKkKlansman” were to get nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars, it would be the second time a Grand Prix winner has gotten into the race for Oscar’s top honor. The first was “Life is Beautiful” in 1998. Thirteen past Grand Prix winners went on to earn 22 total Oscar nominations with five films scoring seven wins. Each

What Does the Phrase “To Dance Like Uma Thurman” Mean?

When you hear the phrase that someone wants ‘to dance like Uma Thurman‘ it seems pretty obvious. Of course if you’re not a film buff and don’t get pop culture references then it might sail right over your head. That’s okay, not everyone has watched the movie Pulp Fiction and it’s very possible that the idea of Uma Thurman getting down to the beat isn’t where a lot of people’s minds might go. It might even be that a lot of people don’t even know who Uma Thurman is, or why dancing like her would be something that a band

Simon Pegg Discusses Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek Film and What We Can Expect From It

As of right now, there are two separate Star Trek films in development at Paramount Pictures. Star Trek 4 is set to be directed by S.J. Clarkson and the plot of which is said to revolve around Captain James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) and his dad George Kirk (Chis Hemsworth). The script is being written by J.D. Payne (Godzilla vs. Kong) and Patrick McKay (Star Trek Beyond).

Then there's the Quentin Tarantino film, which is currently being written by The Revenant screenwriter Mark L. Smith. We don't really know much about the story, but we do know that the plan is to give us an R-rated film.

Simon Pegg recently sat down with Comingsoon to talk about the future of the Star Trek film franchise and it's there that he talked about Tarantino's film and what we can expect from it. After saying that it's a good time for the Star Trek franchise,

Spike Lee’s ‘BlacKkKlansman’ Premiere: Inside One Black Critic’s Proud Battle to Land on the Red Carpet

Spike Lee’s ‘BlacKkKlansman’ Premiere: Inside One Black Critic’s Proud Battle to Land on the Red Carpet
Donald Glover grabbed a glass and squeezed by me, bobbing his head to “This Is How We Do It” along the way. I’d been repeating to myself, “This is Not normal, don’t forget to take it all in” — Cannes is, in fact, light-years from normal — and in that instant, Young Lando/Childish/Earn brushed by me on the night of my first Cannes premiere. This is what they meant when they said you will have a Cannes Moment. This is how we do it, indeed.

Attending the Cannes Film Festival has been my dream since I learned it bestowed its highest honor, the Palme d’Or, on Quentin Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction.” We’ve all seen the glamorous red carpets where everyone worships at the altar of World Cinema. But as is so often the case with dreams, the reality is far from what we build in our minds.

Simon Pegg talks Quentin Tarantino’s Star Trek: “It won’t be ordinary”

As Simon Pegg gears up for press duties on both Margot Robbie thriller Terminal [read our review here] and blockbuster sequel Mission: Impossible: Fallout, he’s been speaking to ComingSoon.net about another of his film franchises; Star Trek. Specifically his involvement as a writer/producer, the news that S.J. Clarkson will direct the next film, and Quentin Tarantino’s “idea”.

When asked whether he’d had a chat with the Kill Bill director about his plans to boldly go, Pegg responded:

“Everyone sort of assumes it’s gonna be like Pulp Fiction in space, but I think his devotion to Trek and his understanding of it… It won’t be ordinary, it’ll have him all over it, but it won’t be anything a Star Trek fan will have to worry about. He has an acute understanding of the story and he’d never do anything to tear it down. I haven’t read the treatment yet,

Rosanna Arquette on the Death of Her Sister, Transgender Pioneer Alexis: 'It's a Huge Wound'
Rosanna Arquette and her family are continuing to mourn the death of their sister, transgender pioneer Alexis, who died nearly two years ago at the age of 47.

“Alexis was our hero and it’s a huge wound, an open gaping wound, in our family,” the actress, 58, tells People while promoting her new film Born Guilty. “That’s why I started the Alexis Arquette Family Foundation on behalf of us all, so that we could do good things in the world under Alexis’s name.”

Jane Fonda Wants to Work With Tarantino, Asks Michael Madsen to Make it Happen

Jane Fonda Wants to Work With Tarantino, Asks Michael Madsen to Make it Happen
Hollywood legend Jane Fonda wants to work with Quentin Tarantino and has asked Michael Madsen to make it happen. The pair were filming an online talkshow for cosmetics brand L’Oreal on the Croisette in Cannes on Monday when the subject came up. Asked if she was interested in working with a director like the “Pulp Fiction” helmer, Fonda said: “Yeah, in a blue minute I’d work with Quentin. Not a director like Quentin – I’d like to work with Quentin.”

Sitting across from Madsen, she asked the longtime Tarantino collaborator: “Can you put in a good word for me?” His quickfire response: “As long as we’re in it together.”

Madsen has worked with Tarantino on “Reservoir Dogs” and the two “Kill Bill” pictures. The two are set to reunite on “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” which will be set against the backdrop of the Manson Family murders

Cara Delevingne, Dan Stevens and more join Elisabeth Moss in Her Smell

Voltage Pictures has announced that Cara Delevingne (Suicide Squad), Dan Stevens (Legion), Eric Stoltz (Pulp Fiction), Virginia Madsen (Sideways), Dylan Gelula (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) and Eka Darville (Jessica Jones) have joined the cast of Her Smell.

The new additions join the previously announced Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale), Amber Heard (Justice League), Ashley Benson (Spring Breakers), Agyness Deyn (Hard Sun) and Gayle Rankin (The Greatest Showman) in the cast of the film, which is being directed by Alex Ross Perry.

Her Smell sees Moss as Becky Something, “a maniacally destructive punk rock star who pushes her relationships with bandmates, family and followers to the limit as she wages a years-long war against sobriety while attempting to re-engage the creativity that had once led her band to massive crossover success.”

“This is a very special film for all of us involved, one that highlights fearless performances led by the indomitable Elisabeth Moss,

2018 BAFTA TV Awards red carpet report live from Royal Festival Hall in London

And so the sun threatens to set on another mild May day in London. It was raining this time last year but as the red carpet really begins to become packed like the tube I took to get to Waterloo and the Royal Festival Hall today, the stars need not worry about getting their brollies out. The evening is warm and the clouds are white. Now that I’ve said this, I fully expect an all-out storm to engulf Southbank. Sod’s law.

The 2018 BAFTA nominees pile onto the red carpet. The TV Baftas are the British equivalent of the Emmy Awards. We Brits will thankfully do better here on Sunday than we did in Lisbon at Saturday’s Eurovision song contest. We finished third last. Lovely.

Cannes Film Review: ‘The World Is Yours’

Cannes Film Review: ‘The World Is Yours’
American audiences take the Tarantino-ization of genre cinema for granted, but not so the French, who adore the director (who won the Palme d’Or for “Pulp Fiction”) but never went so far as to imitate him outright, until now. Director Romain Gavras’ “The World Is Yours” is the long overdue yet entirely unnecessary gangster movie that French audiences have been missing all this time — a fresh riff on “Les Tontons flingueurs” by way of “Jackie Brown” — and judging by the uproarious reception the film received at its Director’s Fortnight premiere in Cannes, they’re grateful to have a cocky, talky, high-attitude crime saga for themselves.

Following Gavras’ gonzo redheads-will-inherit-the-earth debut, “Our Day Will Come,” this film is a massive change of tone for the director, son of politically conscious “Z” auteur Costa-Gavras and a visionary music-video helmer in his own right. Whereas the younger Gavras’ first feature demonstrated

It's Official: Margot Robbie Will Play Sharon Tate in Quentin Tarantino's Manson Movie

Image Source: Getty / Hulton Deutsch / Christopher Polk

It's clear by now that Quentin Tarantino isn't afraid of diving into some pretty gruesome stories, and his next project only further confirms it. In July 2017, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Tarantino is in the early stages of putting together a film described as "a unique take on the Manson Family murders." Here are the scraps of information we've been able to pull together so far:

The Production Team

The drama, which would be his follow-up to 2015's The Hateful Eight, will be called Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and a source confirmed that Tarantino both penned the script for Sony and will direct. The movie is being produced by Tarantino, Harry Potter's David Heyman, and Shannon McIntosh, with Georgia Kacandes serving as executive producer.

On the casting front, Leonardo DiCaprio will be playing the role of struggling actor

Timothy Olyphant in Talks to Star in Quentin Tarantino’s Manson Movie

Timothy Olyphant in Talks to Star in Quentin Tarantino’s Manson Movie
Timothy Olyphant is in negotiations to star in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” a drama set against the backdrop of the Manson Family murders.

The mystery-shrouded project has not yet gone into production. At Sony Pictures’ CinemaCon presentation on April 23, Tarantino said leading actors Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt will be “the most exciting dynamic star duo since Paul Newman and Robert Redford.”

The director also said the film will be the most similar in style and plotting to his iconic “Pulp Fiction,” for which he and Roger Avary won the Academy Award for original screenplay in 1995.

“It takes place at the height of the counterculture explosion,” said Tarantino. “It takes place at the time of the hippie revolution, and it takes place at the height of new Hollywood.”

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” hits theaters on Aug. 9, 2019 — the 50th anniversary of the murders of
