New Year Greetings, 2018: Let’s begin with a few laughs from films & comedians

New Year Greetings, 2018: Let’s begin with a few laughs from films & comedians Dialogue ֍ "Gentlemen, you can't fight in here!

From The Last Tycoon to Woody Allen’s Café Society: Why We Love Stories About Hollywood

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent Woody Allen’s newest film Café Society just opened July 15, and it fits into a cinematic history of stories about Hollywood that audiences love. But Woody Allen himself has been a lightning rod for so long, the electricity generated off the attendant controversies could power a small town. That said, we’re talking about a movie, folks, not the personal life of the director. With that caveat, Café Soc...

Cannes to open with Woody Allen's Café Society

  The 69th Festival International du Film de Cannes will launch with a screening of Woody Allen’s new film, Café Society, on Wednesday 11 May in the Palais des Festivals’s Grand Théâtre Lumière as an Official Selection Out of Competition title. It’s a record-breaking coup for the New York director who has already opened the Festival twice, in 2002 with Hollywood Ending, and again in 2011 with Midnight in Paris.   The...

The Irrational Man Review

  Regardless of opinions surrounding his controversial personal life, Woody Allen has strong philosophical views which he passes on through his work.   “The Irrational Man,” stars Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone, whom both turned in yet another powerful performance with stretched out and brutally honest conversations.    What made the movie so great was its directness. While the heavy dialog made for an uncomfortable movie, it was clearly the intention of th...

The Irrational Man

    Tomorrow is the day we’ve all been waiting for, or at least I have. The Irrational Man looks like yet another one of Woody Allen’s brutally honest and introspective films.    Regardless of opinions of him as a person, he is a beautiful artist who makes movies that really take you out of your every day perspective. Not to mention Joaquin Pheonix has been nearly as consistent as Leo ever since he decided to quit acting for rap. He not only gets into the mi...

Playing it Cool, Review: He’s in love, she has a lover

Playing it Cool Justin Reardon’s debut film Convention started in 2011, but has yet to reach cinemas. His second effort, A Many Splintered Thing, began shooting in 2012, and we now have it released as Playing It Cool. If I were to choose between the two titles, I would find A Many Splintered Thing more interesting and cool, in spite of the obvious pun on Splendoured. Incidentally, the splintered line is actually used in the film. Playing it Cool is a drab title. Chris Evans’ char...

"Blue Jasmine" Blossoms with Cate Blanchett

The first utterances you hear in Woody Allen's latest picture, Blue Jasmine, come from a manic First Class passenger who blabs on and on about herself. That passenger is title  character Jasmine, whose marriage to Madoff avatar Hal (Alec Baldwin) is now as finished as her 1% coffers, and who's going nowhere fast. She's also played by Cate Blanchett, which helps explain why we not only put up with her snobbish affectations, we can't g...

Pimp My Friend: Woody Allen and John Turturro Team Up in “Fading Gigolo”

The Toronto International Film Festival has wrapped for another year. As always, film fans lined up in droves to watch movies from the morning to the wee hours of the night, while others clamored for a chance to catch a glimpse of their favorite celebrities on the red carpet or surreptitiously at local bars and restaurants. And among the 288 features presented from September 5 to 15, one of the first to sell out all of its screenings was Fading Gigolo written and directed by John Turturro, sta...

What Cate Blanchett Can teach Kristen Stewart, Jennifer Lawrence, Ellen Page, and More

  by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent   When the mantle is passed, Hollywood usually makes a show of it. Consider Julia Roberts' crown going to Anne Hathaway, or Katharine Hepburn grudgingly making way for Meryl Streep. With Woody Allen's late career opus, Blue Jasmine, the mantle has just passed from Meryl Streep to Cate Blanchett, and she is phenomenal.  There are subtleties Blanchett taps into here that evoke a little bit of Vivien Leigh, Susan Hayward...

Woody Allen: Still On Top

user
  Consider this proposition…..you are an aging film director whose last hit film occurred when Ronald Reagan was President; you were caught with your pants down  in a sexual scandal with a stepdaughter 35 years your junior; you have burned countless professional bridges with a reputation for being demanding, exhausting and off-putting. And yet…..you are still at the top of your game. Not many film directors (or lesser mortals) could suffer the sling and arrows of all these misfortunes....
