‘David Crosby: Remember My Name’ Film Review: An Affectionate, Moving Look at the Rocker

‘David Crosby: Remember My Name’ Film Review: An Affectionate, Moving Look at the Rocker
Working on a film about musician David Crosby, director A.J. Eaton and producer Cameron Crowe knew one thing going in: They weren’t going to have to dig up any dirt on their subject.

No, the protean, prickly Crosby has always been an open book in many ways, honest about his triumphs and his tragedies, the drug use that nearly destroyed his life on numerous occasions, the wreckage that always threatened to overshadow the beautiful music he made with the Byrds, with Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young and on his own.

Crosby is a man who lays it all on the line in song and in conversation, and “David Crosby: Remember My Name,” which premiered in January at the Sundance Film Festival, is a reminder of that.

He’s an Easy Lover: Garrel Leans on Influences with Fitful Love Triangle(s)

Actor cum director Louis Garrel returns to a fussy triptych with his sophomore film A Faithful Man, wherein he’s recruited legendary scribe Jean-Claude Carriere as co-writer. With handsome support from some comely colleagues, Garrel sparks a tone which melds elements from some of his father Philippe Garrel’s recent examples of amour fou, the transgressive frivolity of Christophe Honore (who recruited the actor as his muse across a range of features), and even the snide passivity of a Woody Allen protagonist.…

‘A Faithful Man’ Film Review: Louis Garrel Conducts a Very French Romantic Roundelay

‘A Faithful Man’ Film Review: Louis Garrel Conducts a Very French Romantic Roundelay
There are almost too many original ideas in “A Faithful Man,” the second feature directed by French star Louis Garrel.

Many plot twists and turns are packed into the rather rushed 75-minute running time here, and they are not always “elegant,” to borrow a preferred term from the film, but they are certainly diverting. The screenplay was co-written by Garrel and the great screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière, and the tone is all over the place, but playfully so.

A Faithful Man” begins with a shot of the Eiffel Tower and some tasteful piano music on the soundtrack, and this would seem to threaten some serious Gallic treatment of l’amour. Garrel’s character Abel tells us in narration that he has been living with Marianne (Laetitia Casta) for three years. As he is leaving one morning for work, Marianne very matter-of-factly tells him that she is pregnant with a baby by a mutual friend named Paul,

Rumour: Lashana Lynch is the new 007 in Bond 25

As revealed by the film’s official synopsis, James Bond has left his position in MI6 at the start of the upcoming Bond 25, and if rumours are to be believed, the film will waste little time in introducing his replacement in the 00 branch, with The Daily Mail reporting that Captain Marvel star Lashana Lynch is the new 007.

According to an alleged source for The Mail: “There is a pivotal scene at the start of the film where M says ‘Come in 007’, and in walks Lashana who is black, beautiful and a woman. It’s a popcorn-dropping moment. Bond is still Bond but he’s been replaced as 007 by this stunning woman.”

There’s long been talk from some sections of the audience that the Bond franchise should go down the Doctor Who route by gender-swapping its iconic super spy. However, producer Barbara Broccoli recently dismissed the possibility, stating

Christoph Waltz’s Blofeld returning for Bond 25

As reported by Daily Mail journalist Baz Bamigboye, Waltz was spotted on the Pinewood set of the as-yet-untitled Bond 25, with the Oscar-winning telling a visitor “You haven’t seen me” when spotted.

Rami Malek reveals his one demand for playing Bond 25 villain

Rami Malek has revealed that he had one demand before signing on to play the villain in Bond 25.

Bond fans around the world are gearing up for the next entry into the iconic franchise and looking forward to seeing what the likes of Rami Malek will bring to the table. Malek will be playing the film’s villain but the actor only signed up under one condition.

Speaking to The Daily Mirror, Malek revealed: “It’s a great character and I’m very excited. But that was one thing that I discussed with [director Cary Joji Fukunaga]. I said, ‘We cannot identify him with any act of terrorism reflecting an ideology or a religion. That’s not something I would entertain, so if that is why I am your choice then you can count me out’. But that was clearly not his vision. So he’s a very different kind of terrorist.

Movie Poster of the Week: François Truffaut’s “Stolen Kisses”

I recently worked with one of my favorite movie poster artists, Akiko Stehrenberger, on a poster for Louis Garrel’s A Faithful Man which, with its lipstick imprints on Garrel’s face, paid accidental homage to the original poster for François Truffaut’s Stolen Kisses. It was Garrel himself who pointed this out—Akiko had never seen the Truffaut poster before and I’d forgotten it—which sent me down a rabbit hole searching for Stolen Kisses posters, of which, it turns out, there is a remarkable variety.Stolen Kisses premiered at the Avignon Film Festival on August 14, 1968 and opened in New York on March 3, 1969, almost ten years after Truffaut’s debut, The 400 Blows, had premiered at Cannes. Stolen Kisses continued the story of 400 Blows’ charming reprobate Antoine Doinel, now all grown up and working as a private detective.The original French poster, featuring an illustration of Jean-Pierre Léaud as Doinel,

Composer Dan Romer to score Bond 25

In news that won’t be entirely unsurprising given his previous collaborations with director Cary Joji Fukunaga, it has been announced that composer Dan Romer has signed on to score the as-yet-untitled Bond 25.

Music producer and composer Romer previously worked with Fukunaga on 2015’s Beasts of No Nation and the Netflix series Maniac. His other credits include Beasts of the Southern Wild, Finders Keepers, The Little Hours, Jim; The James Foley Story, Atypical, The Good Doctor and Far Cry 5.

Grace Jones reportedly stormed out on Bond 25 cameo

If a report from The Sun is to be believed, there’s been more drama on the set of Bond 25 this week as Grace Jones is said to have quit the film in anger after being lined up for a cameo opposite Daniel Craig’s 007.

According to the tabloid’s “source”, Jones – who portrayed the iconic May Day in 1985’s A View to a Kill – had apparently been given premium accommodation and a red carpet welcome for what producers were hoping would be a crowd-pleasing cameo.

However, the supermodel, singer and actress was apparently offended by the size of the role on offer, and – having expected to play a more prominent role in proceedings – was said to have quit on the spot.

First Images from Philippe Garrel’s ‘The Salt of Tears’

Update: Images removed at the request of Wild Bunch.

With a prolific streak like few others directors this decade thus far, we’ve been getting a new (uniformly excellent) Philippe Garrel film every two years like clockwork. While the French director’s latest project, The Salt of Tears, didn’t show up at Cannes like his previous two films, might he be eying a Venice premiere instead? We’ll find out soon, but in the meantime, the first batch of stills and synopsis have arrived, courtesy of Wild Bunch and Rectangle Productions.

See them above and below for the film starring Logan Antuofermo, Oulaya Amamra, Andre Wilms, Louise Chevillotte, Souheila Yacoub. While we wait for his new feature, his son Louis Garrel’s next directorial effort A Faithful Man will arrive this month in the United States, and one can see the trailer below as well.

Bond 25 gets a first official image and scrapped title

Following on from last week’s behind the scenes featurette [which you can watch here], we’ve now got the first official image from next year’s Bond 25 featuring the returning Daniel Craig as 007 along with his classic Aston Martin V8 Vantage, first seen in 1987’s The Living Daylights; check it out here via the official James Bond Twitter

Although we’re yet to get an official title for Bond 25, fan site Mi6 is reporting that the producers did plan on revealing the film’s title as A Reason to Die during the big announcement event back in April, only for the producers and studio to pull the reveal the night before after deciding that it wasn’t “Bond enough”.

15 Films to See in July

With the year coming to its halfway mark, we recently rounded up the 21 most essential films to seek out thus far, and now it’s time to look towards the second half. July brings some festival favorites, some oddities, a few studio release highlights, and a floral fever dream. Check out our 15 picks to see below, followed by honorable mentions.

15. A Faithful Man (Louis Garrel; July 19)

Fluffier than the finest French pastries, Garrel’s latest film is a brisk romantic dramedy to the point of near-satire, which is more of a recommendation than a jab. Ethan Vestby was a fan at Tiff, saying in his review, “Beginning on a shot of the Paris cityscape–yes, the Eiffel Tower plainly in view and everything that surrounds it–Louis Garrel’s A Faithful Man self-awarely announces itself in the tradition of decades of French cinema; say the kind that the average movie-goer

Did the Official James Bond 25 Title Just Leak?

Do we finally know the title of James Bond 25? MGM and Eon Productions have yet to officially reveal the title, but it may have leaked online anyway. We stress may. Until the studio does decide to announce the title in formal fashion, nothing is set in stone. That said, if this latest leak turns out to be true, it would make for an interesting title, for various reasons.

An unofficial James Bond fan account recently posted an image to its Twitter account which appears as though it could be from the production offices. On a piece of paper the words "A Reason to Die" are scribbled out in black marker with the number 7 written below. And with that, we have a new possible title for 007's latest adventure. It certainly sounds like the possible title of a Bond movie, but how likely is this to be true?

Truthfully, it's difficult to say.

Bond 25 featurette offers behind-the-scenes look at 007’s next outing

With rumours flying that Bond 25’s production is a “well-polished shit show” and the crew are on the verge of mutiny following director Cary Joji Fukunaga’s marathon Red Dead Redemption 2 sessions (something the filmmaker swiftly and categorically denied), MGM has decided to give fans a peek behind-the-scenes of 007’s next adventure with a featurette exploring the film’s shoot in the Caribbean; check it out here…

Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.

Bond 25 is set for release in the UK on April 3rd 2020 and in the U.S. on April 8th 2020 and stars Daniel Craig

Bond 25 director denies reports of on set “mutiny”

It’s certainly fair to say that Bond 25 isn’t having the smoothest of journeys to the big screen. We’ve seen director shake-ups, release date shifts, entire scripts tossed out, on-set rewrites, accidents, injuries, leading to reports that crew members are describing the shoot as “a well-polished shit show”.

Another concerning rumour surfaced this past week courtesy of British rag The Sun, which claimed director Cary Joji Fukunaga held up filming due to a marathon PlayStation 4 gaming session, leaving the crew on the verge of mutiny after they were forced to work late in order to make up for missed time.

This has seemingly irked Fukunaga, with the filmmaker taking to Instagram to deny the allegations:

“There’s not a minute on this job that isn’t scheduled, and even during a shoot day, in the hours before call, between takes and setups, and after we wrap there

New Us Trailer for Louis Garrel's 'A Faithful Man' with Laetitia Casta

"I was in a war over Abel." Kino Lorber has debuted an official trailer for the French relationship drama A Faithful Man, originally titled L'homme fidèle in French. This is the second film directed by French actor-filmmaker Louis Garrel, who also co-stars in it. A couple's relationship becomes complicated when she leaves him for his best friend, and returns after he dies. The full cast includes Laetitia Casta as Marianne, Lily-Rose Depp as Ève, plus Joseph Engel, Vladislav Galard, and Diane Courseille. This is another one of these very French films about romance and love and sex and the complexities of it - which might be enticing for some of you. "Shifting points of view as nimbly as its players switch partners, the sophomore feature from actor/director Louis Garrel—co-written with the legendary Jean-Claude Carrière—is at once a beguiling bedroom farce and a playful inversion of the patriarchal

Alejandro Landes’ ‘Monos’ Wins Top Prize at Transilvania Film Festival
Cluj, Romania–Alejandro Landes’ “Monos,” a survival thriller about a group of rebels set deep in the jungles of Colombia, won the top prize at the Transilvanian Intl. Film Festival on Saturday, with the jury praising the Sundance player “for its hypnotic power through its minimalist storytelling, committed cast, and unsentimental portrait of young people with guns.”

After a week of heavy rains in Cluj that swept across the cobbled streets of its historic city center and disrupted countless open-air screenings, a palpable air of relief seemed to settle over the red carpet Saturday evening, as guests climbed the steps of the National Theater at twilight accompanied by the strains of a string quartet.

Looking back at a week of screenings that continued the festival’s tradition of pushing the envelope with bold and provocative programming, Tiff artistic director Mihai Chirilov described from the podium the “experiment” behind the official

Phoebe Waller-Bridge discusses her work on Bond 25’s script

It’s fair to say that Eon isn’t having the smoothest of rides with Bond 25, the latest chapter in the long-running spy series having suffered director and screenwriter shake-ups, production delays and on-set accidents, leading to what the crew are reportedly referring to as a “well-polished shit show”.

Back in April, Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge was brought in to “liven up” the script, and now the BAFTA winner has been speaking to Deadline about her work on the film, and specifically the movie’s female characters.

“There’s been a lot of talk about whether or not [the Bond franchise] is relevant now because of who he is and the way he treats women. I think that’s bollocks. I think he’s absolutely relevant now. It has just got to grow. It has just got to evolve, and the important thing is that the film treats the women properly. He doesn’t have to.
