Baa Baaa Black Sheep, Review: Wolf in sheep’s clothing

Baa Baaa Black Sheep, Review: Wolf in sheep’s clothing Director Vishwas Paandya is not serious. A confessional in the beginning dedicates Baa Baaa Black Sheep to the films he grew up on. He’s also asked his partner in crime (it’s a crime story), writer Sunjiv Puri, to strictly follow his brief. So, when the film was launched, in early 2015, they were probably referencing films of the 1980s-1990s. One character is named Charlie, in a tribute to the legendary comedian, who rul...

American Sniping: Backlash Against Celebrity Takes A Left Turn, From Bergman to Sony to Eastwood

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent There have been backlashes against celebrity before, from Ingrid Bergman and Rita Hayworth being pilloried in Congress in 1949-1950, for Roberto Rossellini and Aly Khan, respectively, to Liz Taylor getting a media shellacking for her multiples in marriage. But these fits of pique have usually come from outside Hollywood. That all changed this past November, when the backlash against celebrity was revealed to come from inside the dream factory, s...

American Sniper, Review: Kyler instinct--all hits, no misses!

American Sniper, Review: Kyler instinct--all hits, no misses! Clint Eastwood told BBC arts editor Will Gompertz recently that he was not fond of the war in Iraq, but was "always sympathetic to veterans". At 84, he is quite a veteran himself too. It’s been a long time since the Rawhide series (early 1960s),  Sergio Leone’s Italian spaghetti Western that made him a star (Fistful of Dollars, 1964), the hard-hitting cop that was to become a prototype (Dirty Harry, 197...

AFI Reality Movies: American Sniper, SELMA, Tales of The Grim Sleeper

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent Only Clint Eastwood could take the story of slain US Military Sniper Chris Kyle, who was mysteriously shot and killed at age 38 last year at a Texas gun range by a fellow vet, and make it a hit as well as a memorial to the man in question. The surprise screening of this highly anticipated feature film last night at AFI Fest presented by AUDI was a crowd-thriller, especially in its subtlety, its restrained sound design, the whoosh of wind, the cr...

AFI Film Festival hits Los Angeles on Nov.3rd and eats its 25th edition cake too!

user
Time to spill the well-kept secrets: I'm a Frenchie in Hollywood! and you know you belong to the city, when you take your first shot of coffee in the morning with the "trades" - lingo for Hollywood Reporter, Variety, The Wrap and likes. Lately, that reading has been pretty gloomy. Cuts and drastic economic measures have prevailed, and muffled the jolly tunes of the industry. So much so that another industry is soaring as a side-effect of the "depression"...Therapists!...

LAFF: Diablo Cody Debunks Her Myth & Dustin Lance Black Dishes Eastwood

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent   Diablo Cody summed up being a female screenwriter in Hollywood at yesterday's LAFF Screenwriter Panel in two sentences. Ready? "If someone (in the press) says 'your legs are fat,' it's not going to help you write. That kind of criticism, that's what happens when you're a lady." She was on a panel with Josh Olson (HISTORY OF VIOLENCE), Dustin Lance Black (MILK) and the co-writers of CAPTAIN AMERICA, Chris ...

To honor the octogenarian's contribution to the history of cinema, the Film Society of Lincoln Center is devoting mu...

Jazz Man Follow Up by Kimberly Deisler

user
  Last night’s red carpet event could have been something written in a movie.  Our Modern Master had a local driver drop him off at the award ceremony.  With fans filling the streets and ticket holders wrapped around the block, red carpet access was limited to say the least.  So limited in fact, that when I arrived there was nary a sliver of space to even sneak through, which made Mr. Eastwood’s entrance all the more incredible.   As the festival powers-that-be, press and fans waited ...

Jazz Man by Kimberly Deisler

For decades Clint Eastwood has been captivating macho men, swooning weak kneed women and setting box office records with his relentless talent as an actor, director, producer and composer.     As an elder statesman of filmmaking, Eastwood’s cool, one-take / two-takes-top directing style is only one ingredient making his films unique, personally composed soundtracks is the other.     As a musician and jazz aficionado, Eastwood lays down haunting melodies that seep into the marrow of yo...

Berlinale 2007: It's a Wrap

The Berlin International Film Festival has long reflected the character of its bohemian host city. Think avant-garde filmmaking in the Forum section; gay-themed pictures in Panorama; and the political polemic popular among competition directors, including this time, the Holocaust film, The Counterfeiters.This year’s festival (February 8th-18th, 2007), however, went one step further, taking fest-goers back in time to a bygone era of cinema and the city’s golden age. The opening film La Vie En...

Can Berlin Help Clint Win Another Oscar?

Wednesday, February 7----With the ballots for the Academy Awards in the mail, speculation is growing about what has become an impossible to predict Best Picture race. While BABEL was considered the frontrunner, especially following its Golden Globe win last month, there is now industry speculation that BABEL and Martin Scorsese's THE DEPARTED may split the "serious film" vote. So, what exactly does that mean? Well, one scenario points to an upset win by the indie smash LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE (...
