'Godard Mon Amour' Review: Biopic on Filmmaker Won't Leave You Breathless

'Godard Mon Amour' Review: Biopic on Filmmaker Won't Leave You Breathless
Jean-Luc Godard is one of the founders of the French New Wave – and, at 87, he's still kicking at the limits lesser intellects erect around cinema. (His new film, a video essay called Le Livre d'Image, will compete at Cannes in May). Now Michel Hazanavicius, director of 2011's Oscar-winning salute to the silent film era The Artist, has rustled up the nerve to put the Godard story onscreen. Well, not the whole story – just the period from 1967 to 1968, when the moviemaker met and married actress Anne Wiazemsky, then 19, and became radicalized

Cannes: Michel Hazanavicius’ Dramedy ‘Redoubtable’ Lands at Cohen Media

Cannes: Michel Hazanavicius’ Dramedy ‘Redoubtable’ Lands at Cohen Media
Cohen Media Group has bought the North American rights to Michel Hazanavicius’ dramedy “Redoubtable” following its premiere in competition at the Cannes Film Festival.

The movie centers on iconic French director Jean-Luc Godard and the drama surrounding the shooting of his controversial 1967 film, “Le Chinoise,” which starred his then-wife, Anne Wiazemsky, and foreshadowed the global student protests that erupted in 1968.

Cohen Media Group plans a North American release in early 2018. The film stars Louis Garrel (“The Dreamers”) as Godard and Stacy Martin (“Nymphomaniac Vol. I” and “Vol. II”) as his second wife, Anne Wiazemsky.

Variety’s Owen Gleiberman gave the film a positive review, writing, “The surprise of ‘Redoubtable,’ which turns out to be a lightly audacious and fascinating movie (if not exactly one to warm your heart), is that though it is, in fact, structured around Godard’s marriage to Wiazemsky, its real subject is his life as an artist — in particular,

Supernatural? Perhaps. Baloney? Perhaps Not: Dark Shadows (2012)

Five years ago this weekend Tim Burton’s updating of Dark Shadows, the gothic/horror-themed soap opera which ran from 1966 to 1971 on ABC and was a seminal influence on a generation of budding horror fans (including Burton), was released on American movie screens, one weekend after Marvel’s The Avengers was still dictating the imaginations (and the wallets) of moviegoers everywhere. Given Burton’s track record with horror comedies (Beetlejuice being the primary example) and collaborations with Johnny Depp (Alice in Wonderland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Edward Scissorhands), a surprisingly low number of ticket-buyers seemed ultimately to care—the movie, which cost $150 million to make, and undoubtedly a hefty chunk of change more than that to market, would earn back only slightly more than half of that in the United States, though its final take globally came in at around $235 million. There were a few takers among critics, notably

Godard on Godard Biopic: ‘Stupid, Stupid Idea.’ But the Show Goes On

From Michel Hazanavicius, director of ‘The Artist.’

Jean-Luc Godard is no less than one of the five most influential filmmakers in the history of the medium. He’s best known as the figurehead of the French New Wave, but that’s a movement that’s been over nearly a half century now, and point of fact the overwhelming majority of Godard’s 124 directing credits come after the Fnw. He’s a man who started a movement and then was somewhat forced to remain in its shadow. There’s a feeling of old cinema — perhaps “classic” is the word — to the director’s oeuvre, but in truth Godard has always been at the forefront of cinematic experimentation no matter what the year or movement du jour, he’s always put innovation ahead of traditional storytelling. This is the man, after all, who gave us the famous quote: “A story should have a beginning, a

James Franco Directing Josh Boone-Scripted ‘The Pretenders’

James Franco Directing Josh Boone-Scripted ‘The Pretenders’
Before Josh Boone‘s The Fault in Our Stars conquered the box office, one of the projects the busy writer-director wanted to make to was The Pretenders. Boone once described his script as “Carnal Knowledge meets Unbearable Lightness of Being or The Dreamers,” which doesn’t sound emotionally draining at all. In 2013, the director put together an impressive cast for […]

Toronto Film Review: ‘Those Who Make Revolution Halfway Only Dig Their Own Graves’

With its multiple aspect ratios, on-screen block quotes, and cutaways to news broadcasts and documentary footage — not to mention a musical overture and interlude — the three-hour Quebecois political epic “Those Who Make Revolution Halfway Only Dig Their Own Graves” unfurls with a bravado as outsized as its title. Inspired by the student demonstrations that sparked the Maple Spring in 2012, writer-directors Mathieu Denis and Simon Lavoie apply the language of radical cinema to a tense, mournful, and profoundly ambivalent portrait of radicalism. Following four far-left activists as they commit acts of vandalism and terror to foment an uprising against the capitalist system, the film channels their passion while insistently questioning their methods and perspective. The forbidding length and provincial specifics suggest a hard sell outside Canada, but “Those Who Make Revolution Halfway” is so tapped into the political moment that it should provoke lively conversations worldwide.

At its peak, the Maple

Why Natalie Portman’s Oscar Buzz in ‘Jackie’ Prompted Tiff’s Hottest Buy
As expected, Fox Searchlight Pictures took advantage of its first and last dibs on Pablo Larraín’s hot acquisition title “Jackie” to acquire U.S. rights. “Jackie,” which tells the JFK assassination aftermath from the perspective of widow Jacqueline Kennedy (Natalie Portman), was not a Tiff debut; that honor went to Venice, where it was a hit and Noah Oppenheim won for best screenplay. However, it was Tiff’s Sunday night screening where the bidding began in earnest — and with it, the possibility that the Chilean filmmaker’s film would be an Oscar contender. (Chile has submitted his Tiff title “Neruda” as its official foreign language Oscar contender.)

Fox Searchlight will push the film into the awards season on December 9th, as they did in 2008 with “Jackie” producer Darren Aronofsky’s “The Wrestler.” (Aronofsky developed “Jackie” with Searchlight before passing the reins to Larraín.) Other distribs were bidding Sunday night

Louis Garrel Channels Jean-Luc Godard In First Pics From Michel Hazanavicius’ Romance ‘Redoubtable’
Legendary French New Wave director Jean-Luc Godard has created a legacy with masterpieces like “Breathless” and “A Women Is a Women.” Now, the helmer is becoming the subject of “The Artist” director Michel Hazanavicius’ romance drama “Redoubtable.” The project was announced back in May, and now the filmmaker has released a handful of new images from the project.

The film is based on Anne Wiazemsky’s autobiography, “Un An Après,” which chronicles the actress’ blossoming romance with Godard during the making of the 1967 film “La Chinoise.” The duo, who married shortly after, also collaborated on “Week End” and “Sympathy for the Devil” before divorcing in 1979. In the first pictures, “The Dreamers” actor Louis Garrel channels the iconic helmer, while “Nymphomaniac” actress Stacy Martin portrays Wiazemsky.

In appreciation of Eva Green, one of Hollywood's great underutilized assets
The first real rabid Penny Dreadful fan I talked to was Greg Ellwood here at HitFix. He was a steadfast believer the entire time it was on the air, and he encouraged me to watch it. I was busy cutting the cord, though, moving away from cable subscriptions. I had no cable in the house, none in my office, and chose not to watch anything on TV. I used Hulu, Netflix, HBO Now, Amazon Prime. And if a show didn’t land in one of the services I used, then it just went on a list of things to watch someday. Maybe. Today is that day for Penny Dreadful for me. After Greg, the person who really picked up that ongoing advocacy for the show was Brian Duffield, who shares my deep abiding love of Eva Green’s work, and he has always been insistent that I was missing some

Eva Green is Gorgeous for August 2016 Cover of W Magazine

Ever since her breakout role in “The Dreamers,” it’s been clear that Eva Green is certainly something special, and her front-page spot for W magazine’s August 2016 issue is nothing short of stunning.

The “Casino Royale” chick explains that though she has a tendency to get naked on film, she’s actually pretty quiet overall- “It is very paradoxical. I am so shy, and, at the same time, I kind of expose myself literally to thousands of people. I don’t really understand why I do that. I need to go through therapy!”

As for her upcoming flick “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” Eva shares, “Miss Peregrine is like a dark Mary Poppins. She has the ability to manipulate time and uses her powers to protect the children. Miss Peregrine will kill for them. And she does! Which was fun.”

Eva Green runs a special institution in first trailer for Tim Burton's Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

  • Cineplex
There is only one director fit to adapt the bestselling kids novel Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, and it seems he has another classic on his hands.

Tim Burton gives his unique touch to this story about children who are housed by Miss Peregrine. The one thing they all have in common is their bizarre attributes, from mouths on the back of their heads, super strength, and the ability to fly.

Eva Green is perfectly cast as the title character, an actress who has definitely made her mark in playing misfits. Whether it was in The DreamersDark Shadows, or her starring role on "Penny Dreadful", her past work proves that she embraces the peculiarities of humanity and fantasy, and we bet she'll embody them masterfully in this film.
