A Patch Of Fog Review

Life looks pretty good for Sandy Duffy. Twenty years ago he wrote smash hit novel A Patch of Fog and has been reaping the benefits ever since. The book has bought him a swanky pad in a trendy part of town, a satisfying day job as a creative writing lecturer, a weekly TV spot as a culture critic (complete with a secret relationship with the show’s host), and respect and admiration from all and sundry.

There are only a couple of flies in the ointment. His publisher is pressuring him to do a 20th-anniversary interview tour of a book Duffy is sick of hearing and talking about. Somewhere along the way he’s also developed a nasty case of kleptomania: idly wandering the aisles of department stores, slipping small cheap items into his pocket and relishing the thrill of getting away with something.

Until, of course, he doesn’t get away with it.

Stephen Graham Goes on the Hunt in Exclusive Clip from ‘A Patch of Fog’

From his break-out role in Snatch to taking part in productions from Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Tomas Alfredson, Shane Meadows, and more, Stephen Graham has always been a compelling aspect of any production. His latest, the Belfast thriller A Patch of Fog finds him taking the role of a security guard who finds a once-famous novelist shoplifting, then blackmails him into a friendship. Following a U.K. bow last summer, the film will arrive stateside this month and we’re pleased to premiere an exclusive clip.

We said in our review from Tiff, “After Michael Lennox’s success with the Oscar-nominated short Boogaloo and Graham, it was only a matter of time before he’d delve back into the feature game with his debut solo fiction. Scripted by John Cairns and Michael McCartney, A Patch of Fog possesses the type of intrigue and suspense that’s able to capture the

A Patch of Fog review – Belfast thriller treads a well-worn but nicely acted path

Sterling performances by Conleth Hill and Stephen Graham as an author and his stalker lend ballast to Michael Lennox’s debut feature

Michael Lennox is the Northern Irish director whose 2014 short Boogaloo and Graham was nominated for the short film Oscar, and won Bafta’s equivalent award for the same film. (Lennox also directed Awaydays, the Stephen Fingleton-scripted short that Fingleton himself expanded into the widely admired post-apocalyptic thriller The Survivalist.) Now Lennox is making his own feature film debut with this Belfast-set thriller, which treads a well-worn path as it investigates the symbiotic relationship between a celebrated author and TV personality, and his security-guard stalker.

Say What You Will About the Academy - But Some Cool International Names Among 2015 New Member Invitees

Academy invitee Eddie Redmayne in 'The Theory of Everything.' Academy invites 322 new members: 'More diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before' The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has offered membership to 322 individuals "who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures." According to the Academy's press release, "those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy's membership in 2015." In case all 322 potential new members say an enthusiastic Yes, that means an injection of new blood representing about 5 percent of the Academy's current membership. In the words of Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs (as quoted in the press release), in 2015 "our branches have recognized a more diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before, and we look forward to adding their creativity, ideas and experience to our organization."

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar
Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning. For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing. Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women. And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club.

87th Academy Awards: the Oscar nominees (and winners) for 2015

Update 02.23.15:

Winners are now indicated. I correctly guessed only 9 out of the 24 categories.

Previous 02.22.15:

Here’s an at-a-glance look at my picks for tonight’s Academy Awards — projected winners are Xed at the lefthand side. Keep in mind: those Xes don’t represent whom I think should win Oscars but whom I think will win, based on what little I can grasp about how the Academy thinks. (I’ve also noted which nominees I think should win. Kindly note that this is not necessarily my take on who did the best performance/writing/FX/whatever of the year, but whom I think is best among the nominees.)

Also noted are the two films — The Salt of the Earth (a documentary nominee) and Wild Tales (a foreign-language nominee) — that I haven’t been able to see.

Birdman wins best film, director
A memorable 87th annual Academy Awards for Fox Searchlight saw Birdman claim best film, director and two other statuettes to tie with The Grand Budapest Hotel’s four-strong haul.

Boyhood, which entered the evening on six nominations and had been expected to push Birdman in several of the senior categories on Sunday night, won a sole best supporting actress for Patricia Arquette.

The film’s time in the Oscar ceremony spotlight will not be forgotten, however, as Arquette paid tribute to her “Boyhood family” and made an impassioned plea for wage equality that spread like wildfire across social media.

Eddie Redmayne from The Theory Of Everything prevailed in a tight best actor contest to deny Michael Keaton another success for Birdman. The popular victory had the British actor jumping with excitement on stage at the Dolby Theatre.

Julianne Moore finally converted her fifth Academy Award nomination into a win for her performance in Still Alice in what
