Arthouse Audit: ‘I Am Not Your Negro’ Soars as ‘Kedi’ Continues Strong

3 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A successful Oscar season is wrapping up, as multiple contenders from the specialty world continuing their long runs. Last out of the gate is Documentary Feature contender “I Am Not Your Negro” (Magnolia) which is rapidly expanding far beyond most similar nominees in an era when most documentaries do not play outside their Oscar-qualifying theatrical runs.

Among limited films, the new releases are mainly niche items without high expectations, and will add little in upcoming weeks. However, strong new Los Angeles dates on the second week of cat documentary “Kedi” (Oscilloscope) showed that its big New York opening was no fluke.

Opening

Everybody Loves Somebody (Lionsgate) – Metacritic: 74; Festivals include: Palm Springs 2017

$1,000,000 in 333 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $3,003,000

The second 2017 release from Lionsgate’s Mexico producing partner Pantelion is a rom-com with a rare female director for this commercial general (mostly Latino) audience. Bilingual, it centers on an Los Angeles-based »

Berlinale: New Europe Film Clinches Deals for China, Benelux to Carla Simón’s Generation Kplus Player ‘Summer 1993’

14 February 2017 10:41 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warsaw-based New Europe Film Sales has struck a raft of deals at the Berlinale, among them the licensing to China (Hugoeast) and Benelux (Cinemien) of Carla Simón’s Berlinale Generation Kplus player “Summer 1993,” a title which is sparking good word-of-mouth at the Berlinale.

Spaniard Simón’s feature debut, the co-production between Barcelona’s Inicia Film and Madrid’s Avalon, in Spain, and Les Contes Modernes in France, turns on a six-year old girl who faces the first summer with her new adoptive family in Catalonia, after her parents’ death.

World premiering at Berlin, the film has received strong interest from French companies, according to New Europe CEO Jan Naszewski.

A burgeoning force in independent production and distribution in Spain, Avalon will release “Summer 1993” in Spanish theaters.

The Polish company has also unveiled new sales on Gabe Klinger’s “Porto,” a story about two outsiders set in the Portuguese city of Porto, »

Berlin Film Review: ‘The Other Side of Hope’

14 February 2017 7:30 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There are a lot of things that feed into ’90s nostalgia, and a weariness with the technology of our time ranks high among them. That’s one reason why the films of Aki Kaurismäki, the cheeky minimalist of Finland, now offer a strange kind of retro comfort. He made his first — and still biggest — splash nearly 30 years ago, with the one-two punch of “Leningrad Cowboys Go America” (1989) and “The Match Factory Girl” (1990), and in all that time Kaurismäki has never changed his style: the static camera set-ups and cheap mood lighting (think David Lynch shot with a 100-watt bulb), the unsmiling characters dropping terse zingers between endless long pauses, the whole “Stranger Than Paradise”-in-the-land-of-herring absurdity.

The Other Side of Hope,” the new Kaurismäki film that just premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival, is set in Helsinki, a cosmopolitan city that, in this movie, at least, looks like a quaint, »

From Fifty Shades Darker to Split: What to see this Valentine's DayFrom Fifty Shades Darker to Split: What to see this Valentine's DayJenny Bullough2/14/2017 10:29:00 Am

Wondering what to do this Valentine’s Day? Although some degrade it as a mere "Hallmark holiday," it feels too weird not to acknowledge it in some way, even if we do so ironically or with our own spin! We admit we're biased here, but we think there's no better way to mark the occasion than with a movie, no matter what your romantic situation is today! Read on for our guide to what to watch today.

With your significant other

Candlelight dinners are very nice and all, but we confess, we kind of prefer snuggling up with our sweeties in a darkened movie theatre. Sharing the experience of watching a movie beats awkward dinner conversation any day!

Arthouse Audit: ‘Kedi”s Cats Rule ‘A United Kingdom’ as ‘Land of Mine’ Bombs

12 February 2017 9:40 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

At last, two 2017 openings have nothing to do with the Oscar race. “Kedi” (Oscilloscope) and “A United Kingdom” (Fox Searchlight) show promising or better initial grosses.

Two others, Best Foreign Language Film nominee “Land of Mine” (Sony Pictures Classics) and “2017 Oscar Nominated Shorts” (Magnolia) are timed to maximize their awards status. The Danish film drew limited interest while the latter, per usual, is nabbing some national attention.

Opening

Kedi (Oscilloscope) – Metacritic: 82; Festivals include: Palm Springs 2017

$40,510 in 1 theater; PTA (per theater average): $40,510

It’s not just Facebook. Moviegoers love cats too. This Turkish documentary about Istanbul’s centuries-old love affair with street felines opened at lower Manhattan’s Metrograph theater. With excellent reviews, two screens and a shorter than average running time, “Kedi” opened to a stellar gross that will likely stand as a high opening weekend mark for some time. Oscilloscope managed this feat without the benefit of heavy »

Palestinian Actress Hiam Abbbas On ‘Insyriated’ and Why The First Victims of Trump Travel Ban Are Americans

11 February 2017 6:40 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris-based Palestinian actress and director Hiam Abbas is one of the few Arab talents who stars regularly in American movies. She has worked with Steven Spielberg, Ridley Scott, Tom McCarthy, and Jim Jarmusch, among others, and will appear in the upcoming Denis Villeneuve-directed “Blade Runner 2049.”

In “Insyriated,” an Aleppo-set chamber drama by French director Philippe Van Leeuw — which world premieres Feb. 11 at the Berlin Film Festival — Abbas plays a Syrian mother of three trying very hard to keep her family life intact while the civil war rages outside. She spoke to Variety about her hopes that the film can help elicit greater empathy with the Syrian people and how the biggest victim of the Trump travel ban are actually Americans.

What drew you to this project?

I felt an obligation of sorts to say yes to this film. The script was beautifully written, but aside from that it »

Cate Blanchett-starring 'Manifesto' racks up further sales

11 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Deals have gone to multiple territories including Italy and Australia.

Following on from the North American deal announced with FilmRise yesterday, The Match Factory’s Cate Blanchett film Manifesto has racked up multiple other sales.

The film, directed by Julian Rosefeldt and feted in Sundance last month, has now sold to fifteen territories.

Manifesto premiered in Sundance last month. I Wonder Pictures has come on board for Italy and Madman for Australia and New Zealand, Cis and Baltics is with A-One and Front Row has the Middle East. The Match Factory expects to finalise deals with further territories, including UK, South Korea, Brazil and Scandinavia, in the next couple of days. 

The film questions the role of the artist in society today. Manifesto draws on the writings of Futurists, Dadaists, Fluxus artists, Suprematists, Situationists, Dogma 95 and other artist groups, and the musings of individual artists, architects, dancers and filmmakers.

Nicolas Winding Refn Is ‘Too Old To Die Young’ At Amazon

8 February 2017 1:18 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While “The Neon Demon” might’ve died in theaters, only Amazon knows how it did on their service, but this much is clear: they want to stay in the Nicolas Winding Refn business. The streaming service which is nipping at the heels of the dominant Netflix, is eager to add high profile filmmakers to their roster, and giving them the budgets and freedom they need seems to have attracted top talent including Woody Allen, Whit Stillman, Jill Soloway, Todd Haynes, Jim Jarmusch, Park Chan-Wook….you get the idea.

‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ Swashbuckles Super Bowl Style With Johnny Depp In Extended Look At ‘Dead Men Tell No Tales’

5 February 2017 4:14 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Believe it or not, it’s never satisfying to dump on an actor or film series, even if the actor is a shitbag accused of domestic violence (ok, nevermind). That ugliness aside, what is up with Johnny Depp, his career and Five ‘Pirates’ films? One of the most respected actors of his generation way back when, working with some of the best filmmakers alive (Jim Jarmusch, Terry Gilliam, Michael Mann, Tim Burton), for over a decade now, Depp has taken almost exclusively tentpole movies that reek of paycheck gigs.

Arthouse Audit: Oscar-Contender ‘I Am Not Your Negro’ Soars, ‘The Comedian’ Dies

5 February 2017 10:25 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

I Am Not Your Negro” (Magnolia), Raoul Peck’s acclaimed documentary on author James Baldwin, opened extremely well this weekend to achieve an elevated position among this year’s Oscar Documentary Features. It also defied the usual strategy for specialized releases, documentary or otherwise, with a wider that usual first week opening.

It joins the Iranian “The Salesman” as a perfectly timed late-stage release. Asghar Faradi’s film expanded in its second weekend to about the same number of theaters showing “Negro.” They stand out as fresh blood in a period when multiple longer running Oscar nominees are still thriving, including a rare trifecta of three Best Picture nominees in the Top Ten: “Hidden Figures,” “La La Land” and “Lion.”

The first two Sundance 2017 films debuted theatrically, both with near-term home viewing prospects. Barbara Kopple’s “This Is Everything: Gigi Gorgeous”  (on YouTube Red this Wednesday) and “Oklahoma City” (on »

Iranian ‘Paterson’ Actress Golshifteh Farahani Says She Could Lose a Role Because of the Travel Ban

4 February 2017 1:16 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Paterson” actress Golshifteh Farahani was exiled from Iran after she appeared in Ridley’s Scott’s 2008 film “Body of Lies” and appeared on screen and on the red carpet without a veil. The actress then moved to Paris, and while she doesn’t carry an Iranian passport, Donald Trump’s new travel ban could affect her career and next role.

“I’m supposed to go to the Us this Saturday for a movie, but I might not be able to go,” Farahani told The Hollywood Reporter. “The embassy is so busy. I’ve been trying to get an Esta, but I can’t even get onto the website. I think some crazy things are happening.”

The actress didn’t reveal the project she was scheduled to appear in, but added that producers were already searching for her replacement in case she was unable to travel.

Wong Kar-Wai’s Color Obsession Honored in One Mesmerizing Supercut — Watch

1 February 2017 9:51 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Legendary Chinese filmmaker Wong Kar-Wai is renowned for his vivid use of color, which the kind folks over at Glass Distortion have made abundantly clear in a sweeping new compilation titled simply, “Wong Kar Wai: Color Obsession.” As the filmmaker’s varied spectrum of bright hues and darker tones splash across the screen, one can see how crucial this colorful aesthetic is to creating the distinct mood and atmosphere for which his films are known.

The Chinese auteur’s obsession with color is well documented, as in this 1998 interview with Bomb Magazine, when he compared “Chungking Express” (1994) to “Fallen Angels” (1995) by discussing both films’ palettes: “Whereas ‘Chungking’ was sunshiny and suffused with bright, lovely daytime colors, ‘Fallen Angels’ is more about neon, and night time, and grunge.”

Kneejerk Reactions To The Oscar Nominations And The Final Word On 2017

29 January 2017 11:01 AM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Even when you live in Los Angeles, as I do, if you’re not in the network of critics groups and press screening and screener DVDs it can be a challenge to keep up with everything you tell yourself you have to see before attempting an informed roundup of the year currently in the rearview mirror. And I also try to not let more than a couple of weeks of the new year go by before checking in, regardless of how many of the year’s big presents I have left to unwrap, though in past years I have not lived well by this dictum—let’s just say that if I’m still posting stuff on the year’s best after even Oscar has thoroughly chewed over the goods, as has happened in the past, well, I’ve overstayed my welcome.

Amid Muslim Ban, Best Foreign Language Oscar Nominee ‘The Salesman’ Soars at Box Office

29 January 2017 10:30 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the global furor over President Donald Trump’s ban on Muslims entering the United States, Asghar Farhadi’s Iranian Oscar nominee “The Salesman” (Cohen Media) opened to strong numbers in New York and Los Angeles. This drama had the best initial limited subtitled release in several years, bettering several films that won the Foreign Language Oscar. (Farhadi, who won the Oscar for “A Separation” in 2012, has just announced that he will not attend the Oscars in light of Trump’s ban.)

“The Salesman” was the sole limited opener to make a major impact; other noteworthy titles are films trying to capitalize on this week’s nomination hauls. Platform titles like “Hidden Figures,” “La La Land” (both now over $100 million), “Moonlight,” and “Manchester By the Sea” are now playing in wider breaks. Among the rest, Weinstein’s “Lion” is performing best, with over $2 million in 575 theaters.

Atom Egoyan on John Hurt in Samuel Beckett’s Krapp’s Last Tape: "I had the great privilege to work with this astonishing actor."

Sir John Hurt, who died this morning on January 28, 2017, was given the honor Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 2004. In 2012, he received a BAFTA Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema Award. Hurt won a Best Actor BAFTA for David Lynch's The Elephant Man, produced by Mel Brooks, and a Best Supporting Actor for Alan Parker's Midnight Express, screenplay by Oliver Stone.

When John Hurt was in New York for Bong Joon-ho's Snowpiercer, we also discussed his work with John Huston, Fred Zinnemann, Richard Fleischer, Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive, the triad with Lars von Trier - Dogville - Manderlay - Melancholia, and the genius of Bertolt Brecht.

Sundance Review: ‘Patti Cake$’ Has Infectious Energy and Familiar Beats

26 January 2017 5:46 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Rhymes, beats, and an audience are all that Patricia Dombrowski requires to achieve her dreams of rap stardom. She already has the former, composed from her personal experience on the thuggish streets and in the dreary bars of Dirty Jersey. Patti Cake$ is about the hard-fought search for the other elements. While there’s an infectious energy to the process of musical creation and an impressive lead performance from newcomer Danielle MacDonald, the feature debut of Geremy Jasper is ultimately hindered by predictable story beats and a cynical outlook at the world it’s capturing.

Patricia (MacDonald) lives with her ailing grandmother and an alcoholic mother Barb (Bridget Everett) who attempts to rekindle her prime at the local pub, where her daughter also bartends. To cope with this life of lower-class routine she raps as “Killa P” every chance she gets, from brushing her teeth in the bathroom to meeting up with her best friend, »

Sundance Film Review: Cate Blanchett in ‘Manifesto’

26 January 2017 2:02 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In 2008, actress Cate Blanchett earned an Oscar nomination for playing folk singer Bob Dylan in “I’m Not There.” As undeniably bold as that casting decision was at the time, it seems positively primitive compared to the one Berlin-based film and video artist Julian Rosefeldt dreams up for “Manifesto,” his feature-length version of a multi-screen installation (recently on exhibit at New York’s Armory) in which Blanchett serves as mouthpiece for 60 creative revolutionaries who staked their claim and stood their ground with regard to what they felt art should be.

Blanchett embodies 13 distinct yet generic characters for the project, playfully reciting the text in a variety of unexpected contexts — the Dada Manifesto becomes a funeral oration, while Claes Oldenburg, “I Am for an Art…” serves as a pre-dinner prayer — in such a way that brings fresh possibility to ideas were always intended to rock the world. How appropriate then that »
