Sundance Review: ‘Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot’ is a Shapeless Biopic with a Stand-Out Joaquin Phoenix Performance

Returning to the Sundance Film Festival for the first time since Gerry, Gus Van Sant has had a peculiar run since. After experimental highlights like Elephant and Paranoid Park, he earned acclaim with Milk, but then his last trio of features–Restless, Promised Land, and The Sea of Trees have been forgettable–or worse. His latest film, Don’t Worry, You Won’t Get Far on Foot, finds him returning with a beating heart, courtesy of Joaquin Phoenix’s stand-out lead performance, but this biopic is ultimately let down by its shapeless, uncinematic approach.

Based on a memoir by Portland’s John Callahan, the scattershot editing structure finds us jumping between his early 20s–when his alcoholism led him to becoming paraplegic after a horrible accident–and his life confined in his wheelchair, from his early, angry days to finding some peace with crafting off-color cartoons and support at an AA group.

With one foot in the classical world & one in the commercial, they gave Victoria the mixture of refinement & attitude I was after.”

Barrett says: “I started composing from episode 2, weaving in some of Martin

Composer Lorne Balfe’s 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi – Music from the Motion Picture Available Jan. 15

Paramount Music will release the 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi – Music from the Motion Picture digitally on January 15, 2016. The album features the film’s original score by Lorne Balfe (Terminator Genisys, Penguins Of Madagascar).

“The film is really about the soldiers’ ordeal and how they coped with the situation at hand,” said Balfe. “Michael (Bay) does a great job keeping the film from becoming political. The film is really here to honor the soldiers and the men and women who ultimately had to step up and do everything they could to save as many people as possible.”

From director Michael Bay, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi is the gripping true story of six elite ex-military operators assigned to protect the CIA who fought back against overwhelming odds when terrorists attacked a U.S. diplomatic compound on September 11, 2012. When everything went wrong, six men had the courage to do what was right.

Christmas Delights From Acorn Media

  • bestbritishtv
It’s that time of year of again when we start scouring the internet for gift ideas. Luckily, Acorn media have served up another platter of top notch dramas for you to acquire this holiday season.

BBC One’s brilliantly clever 2013 drama Mayday comes to Acorn DVD on the 23 November.

Sundance Channel set for UK

The global arm of AMC Networks is readying plans to launch the Sundance Channel in the UK.

Screen’s sister publication Broadcast understands that AMC/Sundance Channel Global is in carriage negotiations with pay-tv platforms including Sky, with a view to launching in 2015.

The plans follow parent firm AMC Networks’ $1bn (£600m) acquisition of Chellomedia, which operates around 40 channels around the world, last year.

The company is home to major global programme brands such as Mad Men and The Walking Dead.

Its channels include AMC, which aired Breaking Bad in the Us, female-skewing WEtv and comedy network IFC. It has been keen to establish a presence in the UK for some time and a number of sources have told Broadcast that it has now selected the Sundance Channel as its first launch.

The drive is being led by Harold Gronenthal, executive vice-president of programming and operations at AMC/Sundance Channel Global, who has been

'Weekend' and 'Looking' Director Andrew Haigh Gets Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtenay for '45 Years'

'Weekend' and 'Looking' Director Andrew Haigh Gets Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtenay for '45 Years'
"Weekend" director Andrew Haigh, who has been taking on helming and executive producing duties on the HBO series "Looking," has a new project in the works. Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtenay are set to star Haigh's "45 Years," which is eyeing a spring start date. Per Variety, the film follows one Kate Mercer (Rampling) in the five days leading up to her 45th wedding anniversary. All is fine until an unnerving letter arrives from her husband: the body of Kate's first lover has been found frozen and perfectly preserved in a glacier in the Swiss Alps. This of course sets an altogether different mood for the imminent wedding anniversary. The story was adapted by Haigh from a short story by poet David Constantine. Rampling was nominated for a Primetime Emmy last year for "Restless," and her recent big-screen credits include Francois Ozon's "Jeune et Jolie" and Bille August's "Night Train to Lisbon,

Kkr, Permira Exit from German Broadcaster ProsiebenSat.1

Kkr, Permira Exit from German Broadcaster ProsiebenSat.1
London — Private equity firms Kohlberg Kravis Roberts and Permira have completed their exit from German broadcaster ProsiebenSat.1.

The firms have sold their remaining 17% stake in the company to unnamed institutional investors for Euros 1.26 billion ($1.7 billion). Dow Jones Newswires said demand was particularly strong in the U.S.

Kkr and Permira bought a controlling stake in ProSieben in 2006, and merged it with media group Sbs Broadcasting, which they had acquired a year earlier. They have since been selling off their shares in stages.

ProSieben shares have risen 47% in the past year as revenue forecasts have improved. Its share were trading at Euros 35.10 ($47.59) on Friday. Optimism has been fueled by its success in converting customers of its TV operations to its online services.

It is expected to join the Dax, the index for blue-chip stock trading on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, later this year.

Eddie Marsan and Bertie Carvel Will Star in BBC America's Adaptation of 'Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell'

  • Indiewire
The upcoming TV adaptation of Susanna Clarke's very enjoyable (if possibly unfilmable) novel "Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell," which has been described as a combination of Jane Austen and Harry Potter, has found its stars. Eddie Marsan ("Ray Donovan," "The Worlds End") and Bertie Carvel ("Restless," "Matilda") will play the two title characters in the seven-part series, a BBC/BBC America co-production. The story is set in an alternate 19th century England in which magic is accepted as having once existed, but is now only studied in a theoretical sense. The reclusive Mr. Norrell (Marsan) stuns York with a demonstration of how practical magic still exists. Norrell makes statues move, brings someone (problematically) back from the dead and travels to London to help with the war against Napoleon. The studious, fussy Norrell develops a complicated working relationship with Jonathan Strange (Carvel), a charming, wealthy and arrogant man who starts practicing.

William Boyd's Bond: it's not just casual sex. What 007 wants is a relationship

Solo, by William Boyd, is latest novel to follow in Ian Fleming's footsteps, which charts spy 'recklessly motivated by revenge'

We may have got James Bond slightly wrong. Yes, he is a prodigious drinker, heavy smoker and consummate killer, but when it comes to his womanising, the author of his new incarnation believes that the spy was more honourable than some think. "It seems to me he wants a relationship," said William Boyd. "It is not just casual sex."

Boyd was speaking at the launch of his new Bond book, Solo, at which he was asked who his favourite Bond girl was. "I'm not too keen on the expression 'Bond girl' because I think Bond has relationships with women," he said. Having said that, he named the character Honeychile Rider – "nothing to do with Ursula Andress playing her in the movie … I think she is a very interesting Bond woman".

Boyd should know,
