‘Between Worlds’ First Look: Nicolas Cage Goes Beyond the Veil in Cannes Mystery
Nicolas Cage is heading to the Cannes Film Festival this year, and he’s looking mighty grisly.

Watch a Film You Know Nothing About

Tom Jolliffe on watching a film you have no prior knowledge of…

To a certain generation, who have grown up entirely with internet access, their movie going existence is likely to be 99% based on pre-ordained knowledge of what they’re going to the multiplex to see, or putting into the Blu-ray player/streaming. If you watch the latest blockbusters you’re normally lucky if there’s a single surprise left by the time you reach the cinema. That’s not merely because there’s a certain predictability with the majority of major blockbusters these days, but because the whole thing has been spoiled or laid out in great detail online before the film has even been released.

In my day (he said, groaning at the fact he just said ‘in my day’) I’d walk into a video shop, browse and occasionally pick something out based entirely on the cover,

After all the chaos of Snowmageddon, the final two days of the Glasgow Film Festival went a lot more smoothly, with most films and events back to normal. It was a particularly good day for younger viewers, with sword and sorcery epic Willow and Bollywood spectacular Bride And Prejudice playing at Kinning Park Carnival, where there were also animal balloons and other entertainment. The Big Bad Fox And Other Tales screened at the Gft and there was also Chinese fantasy epic Legend Of The Mountain to enjoy, with one kind soul bringing doughnuts to share with random viewers in recognition of the fact that it’s over three hours long. Then there was a special screening of Run Lola Run put on by the Glasgow Youth Film Festival team, which attracted quite a crowd.

Provocative 'Touch Me Not' Wins Berlin Golden Bear

Provocative 'Touch Me Not' Wins Berlin Golden Bear
Touch Me Not, a provocative film about sexuality and intimacy that features long stretches of graphic nudity, on Saturday won the Berlin International Film Festival's Golden Bear for best film.

The thing about evil by Anne-Katrin Titze

Roberto Andò on Connie Nielsen's character Claire: "I based her on someone like J.K. Rowling but also on others who have become hugely wealthy through their writing" Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

At his hotel on Central Park South, director Roberto Andò discussed with me the connections to Alfred Hitchcock's I Confess and Torn Curtain in his latest film, which character was inspired by Jk Rowling, the majestic location where he filmed, and how "evil serves no purpose."

The Confessions (Le Confessioni), co-written by Angelo Pasquini, shot by Maurizio Calvesi, and starring Toni Servillo (Paolo Sorrentino's Oscar-winning The Great Beauty and Andò's Viva La Libertà) has an exceptional ensemble cast including Connie Nielsen (Patty Jenkins's Wonder Woman), Marie-Josée Croze (John Michael McDonagh's Calvary), Daniel Auteuil (Michael Haneke's Caché), Moritz Bleibtreu (Tom Tykwer's Run Lola Run), Lambert Wilson (Jérôme Salle's L'Odyssée), Pierfrancesco Favino (Roger Michell

Frankie Shaw of Showtime’s ‘Smilf’ on That Season Finale

Frankie Shaw’s Golden Globe-nominated work on Showtime’s “Smilf” is multifaceted, to say the least. In the comedy, she’s Bridgette Bird, a Bostonian flailing as she tries to both provide for her child and find something resembling fulfillment. The show sometimes trades in fantasy—one episode is an homage to “Run Lola Run”—but it also depicts Bridgette’s traumas in an unvarnished fashion. (The season ended with the character resolving to confront the father who sexually abused her after matching with someone who looks like him on Tinder.) But Shaw’s responsibilities on set aren’t just limited to performing. She’s also a writer, executive producer, and sometimes director. Backstage spoke to her about her unusual style of preparing for auditions, and the recent Season 1 finale of “Smilf,” which was renewed for a second season. How does it feel being nominated for a Golden Globe?Oh my god.
