‘Non-Fiction’ Film Review: Olivier Assayas Comically Mourns the Death of Literature

‘Non-Fiction’ Film Review: Olivier Assayas Comically Mourns the Death of Literature
It’s difficult to ask hard questions about change and technology and progress — particularly to consider whether “progress” is actually progress or not — without sounding like a cranky old man, but writer-director Olivier Assayas has now done it twice. 2008’s “Summer Hours” contemplated a world in which new generations seemed uninterested in preserving art history and cultural treasures of the past, and now a decade later, with “Non-Fiction,” he asks similarly pointed questions about the future of books and literature in the internet age.

That he does so with a minimum of breast-beating and a surfeit of sparkling wit no doubt helps the message go down, particularly since it’s clear that he’s not offering answers but instead merely asking the questions.

The film introduces us to a group of friends, lovers and colleagues, all of whom engage in spirited conversations about the state of writing, acting and politics,

‘Non-Fiction’ Review: Olivier Assayas and Juliette Binoche Deliver a Timeless Comedy About Twitter — Venice 2018

Several decades into the digital revolution, there’s still a twinge of discomfort whenever new work from a major auteur dares to invoke the internet. Even worse: when it does so by name. Facebook. YouTube. Snapchat. Such vulgar things become virtually unavoidable in any movie that’s about the modern world, but the transience of social media remains hard to reconcile with the timelessness of great cinema. It’s the residue of a cannon that’s loaded with dead men and often pointing backward, the legacy of a pantheon that tends to regard modernity as more of an existential threat than a tool at its disposal.

It’s also why Olivier Assayas’ sly and delightful “Non-Fiction” (née “E-book”) feels like such a lark at first — like a master filmmaker clearing his throat between more significant projects. That’s exactly what Assayas wants you to think.

It’s one thing when

Pascal Breton’s Federation Entertainment has acquired international rights to “Mytho,” a series drama which will be directed by Fabrice Gobert, the creator of Canal Plus’s hit supernatural series “The Returned.”

The series is being produced by Bruno Nahon at Unité de Production.

“Mytho,” which comprises six one-hour episodes, will topline French actress Marina Hands (“Tell No One,” “Lady Chatterley”) as Elvira, a loving and caring wife who finds herself on the edge of burnout. One day, she starts suspecting her husband of having an affair, and on the spur of the moment, she pretends that she is sick, a small white lie that will have huge consequences.

‘Rock’n’Roll’ Review: Marion Cotillard and Guillaume Canet Play Themselves In Silly and Surreal French Satire — Tribeca 2017

‘Rock’n’Roll’ Review: Marion Cotillard and Guillaume Canet Play Themselves In Silly and Surreal French Satire — Tribeca 2017
The first thing you need to accept about “Rock’n’Roll” — an endearingly bizarre showbiz satire in which actor and filmmaker Guillaume Canet (“Tell No One”) plays a hyper-neurotic version of himself who suffers one of the worst mid-life crises since “8 1/2” — is that the movie never asks you to feel sorry for the guy who goes home to Marion Cotillard. On the contrary, Canet’s new comedy (his first outing behind the camera since his English-language debut flopped in 2013) is a bruised, self-deprecating spectacle that finds the French celebrity mocking himself for the fragility of his own ego.

Yes, the movie argues that stars might sense their expiration dates approaching more acutely than the rest of us, and yes, it dwells on how difficult it is to know that everyone is watching you and judging you and measuring you against your former self. Still, “Rock’n’Roll” is able to

Secret Cinema X. Tell No One: The Handmaiden review

Credit: (c) Secret Cinema / Al Overdrive

Secret Cinema has grown a lot from its humble beginnings in 2007. Now mostly known for its huge immersive productions that bring films to life, with notable experiences including Back to the Future and The Empire Strikes Back. Even right now Secret Cinema has an ongoing event that brings Moulin Rouge to life, ensuring London commuters are confused by the sudden influx of Parisian prostitutes and top hat wearing gents: although, it is London, so probably not.

With extensive lists of rules, items to bring, heavily encouraged dress codes, and sometimes even specific roles to take on, the experience can seem just as pretentious and threatening, as it is bizarre and exciting. After all, years of cinema going has often been a fortress of solitude where interaction is discouraged and you can slip into the darkness with only the sound of crunching popcorn to snap

How ‘A Man Called Ove’ Became a Sleeper For the Best Foreign Film Oscar

How ‘A Man Called Ove’ Became a Sleeper For the Best Foreign Film Oscar
Edward Arentz is in a good mood. Earlier this year at the Berlin Film Festival, the Music Box Films managing director picked up a little Swedish comedy, “A Man Called Ove.” (That’s “oo-veh.”) No one else was much interested in the grumpy-old-man movie starring the original Wallander, Rolf Lassgård, which falls in the mold of Jack Nicholson’s “About Schmidt” or Clint Eastwood’s “Grand Torino” (without the guns).

But Arentz found himself crying, laughing, and deeply moved. And over the years he has learned to trust his gut. After all, he picked up U.S. rights to three other little Swedish films that became a worldwide phenomenon, “The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo” series ($22 million U.S. total). That experience paved the way for “A Man Called Ove.” At $3.3 million, it’s the highest-grossing foreign-language film of 2016, has landed on the foreign-language Oscar shortlist, and has a strong shot at a nomination.

The Revival of the Cinema Experience

It wasn’t long ago that the future of cinema seemed to be not so much in doubt but verging on the downright bleak.

After all, renting movies on DVD was cheaper and easier – and that was before the emergence of streaming and downloading films via the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime; even faster, more convenient and certainly more affordable. With the latest films available and accessible to watch, within seconds, from home, why would anyone bother to hike to an out of town cinema and pay around £10 a ticket to watch the same movie in the company of a bunch of complete strangers?

For families in particular, it felt as if a trip to the cinema – once just a staple activity during a weekend afternoon, was being priced out of range bar all but special occasions. Yet far from being under threat, cinema has boomed. According to stats from the UK Cinema Association,
