  • post How we made Deliverance - 29 May
  • John Boorman: ?Wherever poor Ned Beatty went, people would say: Squeal like a pig! It went on for years?Warner Bros had acquired the rights to James Dickey?s novel, and, after making Hell in the Pacific in very difficult circumstances, they felt I was the man to take it on. I?d never been to the south before, but the first thing I did was go to meet Dickey. We drafted the screenplay together. Always by correspondence, because whenever we met we never got much done. It was the drinking, really. On one occasion, he came to LA to work, but locked himself in a hotel room with a ballerina called Amy Burke. Continue reading...
  • post Scarface-off: why another reboot would be a shot in the dark - 29 May
  • Hollywood has already had two cracks at the gangster tale ? here?s hoping they look to the 30s original, not De Palma, for inspirationJust how hungry are we all for another remake of Scarface? I have to say I?m pretty happy with the ones we?ve already got, but that won?t stop Universal from remaking it again. They?ve been trying for most of this decade, churning through directors of the reboot persuasion such as Antoine Fuqua of The Equalizer and The Magnificent Seven, and top-table screenwriters of a gangsterish inclination like Paul Attanasio, Terence Winter and the Coen brothers. But now it looks as if they might be getting somewhere, thanks to news that the studio is currently in talks with Training Day scribe and Suicide Squad director David Ayer.

  • post Cannes 2017 ? the best of week two - 27 May
  • Festival spirits were boosted by an outrageous horror starring Nicole Kidman, a brilliant art world satire, and a brutal contender for the Palme d?OrNo visit to Cannes is complete without a trip to the market at the back of the Palais. Hidden from view, like a demented old aunt, sits the realm of zombie rabbits and ?erotical thrillers?, a teeming tide pool of B-movie cinema. Except that this year I?ve left the visit too late. When I wander down, early evening on the second Wednesday, the circus is already pulling out of town. It leaves behind a mess of abandoned stalls and plastic crates and myriad screens broadcasting a film called No Signal. It?s lonesome in the market after the sales staff have gone, like walking past a row of off-season beach shops, the dinghies and balls trapped behind wire mesh. Creepy, too, because on retracing my steps I find that the main exit is closed, which means taking a circuitous route through a maze of underground walkways. Someone should shoot a horror flick set down in the Cannes market at the festival?s end.Cannes grows old. The punters are tired. It?s all they can do to keep themselves vertical. The whispers, meanwhile, are that this has been an uneasy edition, revealing a festival in a fascinating state of flux. The independent film sector is in decline, subscription TV is on the rise and the Netflix row suggests that Cannes is still finding the best way of riding both sides of the seesaw. Even its lavish 70th birthday celebrations (guests included Catherine Deneuve, Juliette Binoche, Charlize Theron and Claudia Cardinale) seemed a valiant attempt to enshrine the festival?s past, perhaps as a means of safeguarding its future. Cannes will endure; it?s too glorious not to. Right now, though, it remains a big analogue beast, toiling to adapt to a digital planet. Continue reading...
  • post Joshua: Teenager vs. Superpower review ? a Hong Kong schoolboy takes the fight to China - 27 May
  • A rousing documentary profiles Joshua Wong, the adolescent activist who found fame with his protests against the Chinese government Related: Joshua Wong, the student who risked the wrath of Beijing: ?It?s about turning the impossible into the possible? The Joshua of the title is Joshua Wong, an unassuming Hong Kong schoolboy who decided to pick a fight with the next global superpower, and won, at least initially. In 2011 14-year-old Wong and his Scholarism movement managed to defeat an effort to make China?s communist National Education curriculum mandatory in Hong Kong schools through the power of peaceful protest. It was the first victory an activist group managed in the territory since it came under Chinese rule in 1997, when Wong was a year old. Continue reading...

  • post Cannes 2017 awards: visceral power overlooked in favour of bourgeois absurdity | Peter Bradshaw - 28 May
  • The Square was a decent pick for the Palme d?Or but there were disappointments: notably the jury?s failure to get fully behind the outstanding Russian film Loveless Related: Cannes 2017: Ruben Östlund wins Palme d'Or for The Square The results are in, and Pedro Almodóvar?s Cannes jury has delivered a prize list which is not as off the wall as it has been in the past. However, there is one ŕ quoi pensaient-ils? moment. Diane Kruger was awarded best actress for a self-conscious and borderline-preposterous turn as a hand-wringing avenger in the disappointing and shallow TV-movie-style drama about neo-Nazi terrorism called In the Fade, from Fatih Akin. That really was a film to forget, with a very misjudged ending which appeared to think it had split the difference between choosing violence and non-violence. Continue reading...

  • All the awards from the 70th Cannes film festival, where the Swedish director?s art-world satire has won the top prizePeter Bradshaw on Cannes 2017 awards: visceral power overlooked in favour of bourgeois vanity
    Report: Ruben Östlund wins Palme d?Or for The SquareFull list of winners 8.22pm BST Right, Cannes is over bar the shouting so I?m off. Head over to Guardian film shortly for Peter Bradshaw?s take on this year?s winners and for a gallery of the best red-carpet action. And congratulations to Mr Östlund and The Square. Au revoir! 8.16pm BST Netflix hogged many of the headlines at Cannes, but left the Croisette empty-handed, with neither Okja or The Meyerowitz Stories picking up a major award. That perhaps unsurprising, given that Pedro Almodovar was very critical of the streaming giant at the festival?s opening press conference.
