Matteo Garrone and Toni Servillo to Take on ‘Pinocchio’; Andrew Haigh and Jack O’Connell Plan Alexander McQueen Biopic

Pinocchio is probably a bit low on your list of classic tales that could use a 21st-century makeover, but a take that’s helmed by Matteo Garrone (Tale of Tales, Gommorah) and led by Toni Servillo (The Great Beauty) is, if nothing else, more interesting than most possible combinations. (I’m still a bit peeved the Paul Thomas […]


Explore Roman Polanski’s “Cinema of Invasion” in a New Video Essay

“No one does it to you like Roman Polanski” – a tagline that would take on some rather unfortunate new contexts only a few years after its unveiling, or the rare bit of marketing to properly sell an artist? Answer: both. But we’ll only focus on the second point, our impetus being a new, Cristina Álvarez López– and Adrian Martin-helmed […]


Aardman Animations Announces ‘Shaun the Sheep Movie 2’

Aardman Animations have just recently begun production on their 2018-bound feature Early Man, which features the return of director Nick Park. With the voices of Eddie Redmayne and the newly added Tom Hiddleston, the prehistoric-set comedy will take well over a year to be animated, but in the meantime, the company has already announced their next […]


Watch the Oscar-Winning Short Film ‘Stutterer’ for Free

If our review of this year’s Oscar-nominated live-action shorts is any indication, the Academy got it right when handing their award to Benjamin Cleary‘s Stutterer. We summed up the best of the bunch by saying, “Cleary provides his character a fully realized history in but twelve minutes of real estate by letting these questions sit hidden behind audience […]


Watch Hours of Talks with the Creators of ‘Moonlight’

Whatever you, personally, make of the picture, it is undeniable that Moonlight is one of the year’s most acclaimed films — if not the best-regarded, period. It’s one of 2016’s major success stories, too, having roped in more than $100,000 per venue this past weekend and thus marking it the biggest opening-per-theater average of the year. Whether you’ve seen it […]


Antonio Campos’ Top 10 Films

With his three features — Aftershool, Simon Killer, and, most recently, Christine — director Antonio Campos has crafted a trilogy of tightly controlled character studies that put us in the scarred minds of our protagonists like few other emerging directors. To get a sense of the formative films in his life, as part of his […]


Tom Hardy, Leonardo DiCaprio, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and More Find New Roles

It’s been a relatively quiet year for Tom Hardy, at least compared to a rather flurried 2015 that saw the English-born actor earn his first Oscar nomination for his performance in Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s The Revenant and swing across countless screens in George Miller’s critical and financial behemoth Mad Max: Fury Road. Now, it looks as […]


James Gray, Robert Pattinson, Sienna Miller and Tom Holland Discuss ‘The Lost City of Z’ in 30-Minute NYFF Talk

The good news: James Gray‘s highly-anticipated, long-gestating The Lost City of Z is well worth the wait. The bad news: if you didn’t get a chance to see it at New York Film Festival, you’ll have to wait half-a-year. To help ease some of delay, today we have the 30-minute press conference following the first […]


See Andrei Tarkovsky’s Influence on the Films of Lars von Trier in Side-By-Side Video

Lars von Trier‘s deep affection for the films of Andrei Tarkovsky is no secret. After all, Antichrist was dedicated to the legendary Soviet filmmaker. His early drama The Element of Crime perhaps borrows the most from Tarkovsky’s work, but the rest of filmography is littered with additional references and homages. To help put them all […]


Watch: BMW Shorts Return With Clive Owen-Led, Neill Blomkamp-Directed ‘The Escape’

Also starring […]
