Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2016: #34. Agnieszka Holland’s Game Count

Game Count

Director: Agnieszka Holland

Writers: Agnieszka Holland, Olga Tokarczuk

Polish auteur Agnieszka Holland, once the protégé of Krzysztof Zanussi, is still best remembered for early 90s titles such as Europa Europa (1990) and her Arthur Rimbaud biopic starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Total Eclipse (1993). Her last feature was 2011’s In Darkness, nominated for Best Foreign Language film that year, and she’s been steadily working in television, from the superb mini-series “Burning Bush,” to English language items such as episodes of “House of Cards,” and the t.v. treatment of “Rosemary’s Baby.” She’s been attempting to adapt famed Polish novelist Olga Tokarzuk’s Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead for several years, and phases of filmmaking have commenced on her adaptation, known as Game Count and co-written by Tokarzuk.

The many facets of Leo DiCaprio: The Wolf of Wall Street

By Michael Russnow As Oscar voters continue to mark their ballots until this Wednesday, I wonder what goes into their thinking? Do they vote specifically for what they believe is the best achievement of last year, a surprising performance and accomplishment or is it a cumulative assessment of someone’s career? For all these reasons, and not just one, I’m going against the grain of what appears to be the general consensus and strongly suggest that Leonardo DiCaprio deserves the Oscar this year for The Wolf of Wall Street, even more than favorite Matthew McConaughey. This doesn’t in any way diminish McConaughey’s performance in Dallas Buyers Club. It was terrific, and the subject matter of the film made it that much more compelling. However, DiCaprio’s execution, in my view, was even more powerful, in particular as it was a totally different characterization and portrayal than we

Leonardo DiCaprio Unleashes a Fearless ‘Wolf’ Performance

Leonardo DiCaprio Unleashes a Fearless ‘Wolf’ Performance
Leonardo DiCaprio apologizes as he reaches for an e-cigarette; he’s spent a long day taking photos and doing interviews, and has been longing for a break. As he relaxes in a suite at the Four Seasons Hotel, he stops to admire the setting Los Angeles sun and offers a simple tribute: “Wow, that’s gorgeous.”

There is something cinematic about the handsome actor against the backdrop of the sunset, and something egalitarian about one of the biggest stars in the world being moved by a simple act of nature. Though he has specialized in larger-than-life characters in recent films like “The Wolf of Wall Street” and “The Great Gatsby,” DiCaprio comes off as remarkably down to earth.

“When I started acting, I didn’t think of it as a career,” DiCaprio, 39, says of his early start as a pre-teen appearing in commercials. “I always thought Hollywood was this magical

Oscars 2012: Light in the darkness

Hotly tipped for a foreign language Oscar for In Darkness, director Agnieszka Holland talks about making films under communist rule – and directing The Wire and The Killing

Agnieszka Holland is the dark horse of the 2012 Oscars, which seems oddly fitting. Her latest film, In Darkness, plays as a begrimed Schindler tale, with its protagonist, Leopold Socha, hiding out in the sewers of Lviv while the Holocaust rages overhead. It has brought the 63-year-old director a nomination in the foreign language category, where she is pitted against the highly fancied A Separation, and marks the latest twist in a career that has taken her from Warsaw to Prague, Paris and La.

"Where is home?" mutters Holland, sipping bottled water in a London club. "Maybe this is." Dressed for purpose with her utilitarian hairdo and resilient, thick-framed glasses, she briskly explains that she made two Holocaust dramas before In Darkness (Angry Harvest; Europa,

A Dangerous Method – review

David Cronenberg analyses the pioneering work of Jung and Freud in this engrossing and thought-provoking drama

David Cronenberg has long been recognised as a prime exponent of the psychological thrillers known as body horror movies, stories of terror involving parasites, metamorphoses, diseases, decomposition and physical wounds, such as Shivers, Videodrome, Naked Lunch and his version of The Fly. Now, as he approaches 70, an enfant terrible turned cinematic elder statesman operating from the Canadian fringe of the cultural mainstream, he has stood back from the visceral fray.

His engrossing, admirably acted new film, A Dangerous Method, takes an objective, historical look at the early days of psychoanalysis and the people, notably Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, who provided us with the conceptual framework and language for discussing the phenomena and experiences he has been dramatising over the past 40 years.

Helping him in this enterprise is the British playwright and screenwriter Christopher Hampton,

Cronenberg's 'A Dangerous Method'

It's been a while since we've heard from director David Cronenberg. But he's back, with Viggo Mortensen in tow, with a new film called A Dangerous Method.

A Dangerous Method is a somewhat-speculative historical drama concerning the relationship of famed psychiatrists Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. While this seems like an unusual topic for Cronenberg, as you'll see in the trailer embedded below this flick seems to contain some of Cronenberg's favorite themes: complex human relationships and outré sexuality.

The flick was written by Christopher Hampton and is based on his play The Talking Cure, which was based on John Kerr's book A Most Dangerous Method. Academy Award winner Hampton is well versed in historical dramas, having written Dangerous Liaisons, Mary Reilly, Total Eclipse and Atonement, among others.

This is Mortenson's third film in a row with Cronenberg. Other cast members include Keira Knightly, as the woman who complicates the shrinks' relationship,

Zac Efron Won't Follow Leonardo DiCaprio's Risky Path

Zac Efron is not willing to take on risky roles. The "High School Musical" star cites "Shutter Island" actor Leonardo DiCaprio as his idol but admitted he would be unwilling to take on risky parts, such as a teen heroin addict in "The Basketball Diaries" and a gay French poet in "Total Eclipse", like Leonardo did.

"It's a different time now. It's harder to get those films made," he said. "Also is has to be roles that I can identify with and relate to. I wouldn't do it just to do it."

Zac also revealed he is finding it tough to bridge the gap between teen heartthrob and respected actor, and said he would love for a top director to guide his career. The 22-year-old actor explained he would love to work with "a great director that's passionate about a project and has some kind of role for me. That's

Diary of a Wimpy Kid star Zachary Gordon offers top tips on that first day at school

In the new comedy Diary of a Wimpy Kid, released in the UK on August 25, Zachary Gordon stars as Greg Heffley, who faces the trials and tribulations of starting secondary school and struggling to fit in.

Life is made more interesting by his uncool best friend Rowley Jefferson, played by Robert Capron.

Zachary and director Thor Freudenthal had earlier chatted on the Vancouver set.

Here, the youngster speaks about his role after filming was completed, revealing his own real-life middle school nerves and offering some tips to youngsters facing the same ordeal.

Q: What is the universal appeal of this film?

A: I would say what's great about this movie is how funny and how cool it is because you've never seen a kid like Greg get himself into all these weird situations. He gets tackled by a girl he is wrestling, he gets beaten up by the weirdest kid in school.

Their Best Role: Leonardo DiCaprio

Their Best Role: Leonardo DiCaprio
He's 35 years of age but some people think he still looks like a baby-faced boy. Leonardo DiCaprio may look younger than his years, but he's come a very long way from playing a homeless kid on Growing Pains.

His striking good looks were complemented by a fierce intensity in This Boy's Life; he would need every ounce of courage to stand up to Robert DeNiro as his eventual stepfather, a hidden cauldron of anger and rage. DiCaprio faced up to another challenge in What's Eating Gilbert Grape, fleshing out the more demonstrative role as Johnny Depp's brain-damaged younger brother and earning an Academy Award nomination. Lesser actors would have been glad merely to have survived acting against a powerhouse like DeNiro or a young male icon like Depp; DiCaprio appeared to thrive under the pressure, moderating the showy nature of the roles with a welcome degree of subtlety.

'White Collar' revs up for second season

'White Collar' revs up for second season
It was all fun and games Tuesday night with the "White Collar" gang as they revved up for the upcoming second season.

The series, which has been likened to "To Catch a Thief" and "Catch Me If You Can," centers on the daily dysfunction between a charming con man Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) and his elder "babysitter" of sorts FBI agent Peter Burke (Tim DeKay), with the underlying question: Who can you really trust?

With a plane explosion closing out a successful freshman year that ended in early March, the finale moment wasn't the one that brought shockwaves. Instead, it was the midseason cliffhanger in December, with the reveal that it was good-cop Peter who was the wearer of the infamous ring that brought the biggest gasps.

"That one scared me a lot more than this one did, I gotta say," creator and executive producer Jeff Eastin said of the midseason shocker.
