  • post Cannes 2017 day six: Nicole Kidman and Isabelle Huppert on the red carpet ? in pictures - 22 May
  • The big premieres on the sixth day at Cannes film festival were The Killing of a Sacred Deer (from director Yorgos Lanthimos) and Michael Haneke?s Happy End Continue reading...
  • post Al Gore at Cannes: 'Trump cannot stop the solutions to the climate crisis' - 22 May
  • The former US vice-president and environmental activist said there was hope in the fight against climate change ? but the world and the US had to actAl Gore believes that Donald Trump will not halt the momentum of the climate movement even if he withdraws the US from the Paris agreement.Speaking at a press engagement for his new documentary An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, the former US vice-president and environmental activist said that he was confident Trump would commit to the historic climate change agreement, but that even if he did not, it would still not be enough to reverse the move towards renewable energy in many American cities.

  • post Kristen Stewart on her directing debut: 'The best female film-makers are compulsive freaks' - 22 May
  • The Twilight actor is at Cannes to show Come Swim, her film about heartbreak starring a man who can?t quench his thirstIn a suite at the Hotel Majestic Barričre in Cannes, every surface heaves with haute couture. Chanel dresses spun from gossamer threads are draped along the walls and chunky, diamond-studded bracelets are scattered across the dresser. Only the suite?s occupant doesn?t seem to have received the memo. Kristen Stewart, dressed in a vest and black cargo pants, her hair in a blond crop, looks almost defiantly out of place.But Stewart is not quite the incongruous presence she might seem at the festival. In 2014, she became the first female American actor in 30 years to win a Cesar, for best supporting actress in Olivier Assayas?s Clouds of Sils Maria. More recently, there was her bewitchingly odd performance in Personal Shopper, Assayas?s strange, sad, ruminative ghost story. Continue reading...
  • post The Day After review - Hong Sang-soo's boozy comedy is diverting but slight - 22 May
  • The South Korean director?s latest is an amusing, if undeveloped sketch about infidelity and mistaken identity, washed down with lashings of alcohol Related: L'Atelier review ? words become weapons in Laurent Cantet's study of a writing workshop Hong Sang-soo?s The Day After is an amusing, if disconcertingly undeveloped sketch or cine-short-story about infidelity. As so often in the past, this film-maker inhabits a Rohmeresque world of talk, of dialogue, and there is something unfashionably and refreshingly minimalist about this. Most films might have one scene ? or no scenes ? in which two characters spend their time in a restaurant, talking and getting absolutely trashed. In Hong?s movies this is a keynote scene, or scenes, which might well account for over half the film. There are moreover plenty of scenes with two people talking in which the filming is so austere that Hong disdains more than one setup for the conventional shot-reverse-shot and just has his camera swivelling from left to right and back, like a spectator behind the umpire?s chair at Wimbledon.

  • post Tom Hardy's casting as Venom is a masterstroke for Sony's superhero universe - 22 May
  • A leading man with the skill to illuminate Eddie Brock?s twisted soul, Hardy is sure to turn the limited raw materials of this antihero into a titan of cinemaHow are we supposed to take the news that Tom Hardy has been hired to play Eddie Brock, AKA the comic book antihero Venom, in a forthcoming superhero adventure for studio Sony, once and future custodian of Spider-Man on the big screen? If this were a sporting signing, it would be roughly equivalent to footballer Lionel Messi turning out for Accrington Stanley. With one mighty stroke, Sony has rendered all arguments about Venom?s unsuitability to big-screen stardom ? and I?ve made quite a few of these ? utterly irrelevant.For there is something about Hardy that seems to elevate the most unwieldy of projects to the gold standard. Who would have thought that Mel Gibson could be so casually replaced as Mad Max, in 2015?s brutally minimalistic Fury Road? Or that the Batman villain Bane, a mute automaton in a dodgy gimp mask in Joel Schumacher?s Batman & Robin, could be transformed into one of the caped crusader?s greatest big-screen foes in Christopher Nolan?s The Dark Knight Rises?

  • post War Machine review ? Brad Pitt goes over the top in Afghan war satire - 22 May
  • Based on real-life events, David Michôd?s take on the war in Afghanistan plays for laughs and misses the mark Related: War Machine: let battle commence in Netflix assault on cinema Not funny enough to be satire, not realistic enough to count as political commentary, not exciting enough to work as a war movie, David Michôd?s supposedly Helleresque romp, released on Netflix, is an imperfect non-storm of unsuccess. Continue reading...
  • post Hounds of Love review ? savagely intense Australian horror is the scariest film of the year - 22 May
  • In a directorial debut comparable to The Babadook or Snowtown, the foul and fetid psychological energy clings like an unshakeable dream
    Perth-born writer/director Ben Young launches his feature film career like a bat out of hell with the bone-chilling horror-thriller Hounds of Love, a savagely intense and frightening tale of suburban sickos that is hands down the scariest movie you?ll see this year. By contrast, it makes the recent, racially charged water cooler horror hit Get Out look like something you watch with grandma after tea and scones.Australian cinema?s new enfant terrible (soon, inevitably, to be snapped up by Hollywood) cut his teeth on music videos, including a zombie-infused love story for the John Butler Trio. Hounds of Love is a tough watch but Young?s direction is not gratuitous ? given how high impact the film is, it?s surprising how much of the action takes place off-frame. Continue reading...
  • post A meme come true: Rihanna and Lupita Nyong'o to star in film based on tweet - 22 May
  • Selma director Ava DuVernay will direct film for Netflix after joke movie pitch about photo of stars goes viral, with a script from Insecure breakout Issa RaeRihanna and Lupita Nyong?o are set to star in a buddy movie for director Ava DuVernay after a tweet of the two went viral.The Grammy-winning singer and Oscar-nomimnated actor were pictured together at a Miu Miu fashion show in 2014, which was then used as part of a joke movie pitch on Twitter in April.

  • post Carne y Arena review - dazzling virtual reality exhibit offers a fresh look at the refugee crisis - 22 May
  • Birdman director Alejandro González Ińárritu?s latest project is an innovative and immersive account of the horrors faced at the Mexico-US border Related: The Day After review - Hong Sang-soo's boozy comedy is diverting but slight So ? the envelope is pushed a little further, the limits of cinema questioned a little harder, the rectangular perimeter fence of the movie screen challenged a little bit more confidently.

  • post L'Atelier review ? words become weapons in Laurent Cantet's study of a writing workshop - 22 May
  • The Palme d?Or winner (for The Class) returns with a drama that throws together disparate aspiring writers, in a film that suggests debate can be as exciting as actionLaurent Cantet?s L?Atelier shares a highly effective central device with his 2009 Palme d?Or winner The Class: the social and economic issues of a place ? in L?Atelier?s case the once-thriving port town of La Ciotat, near Marseille in the south of France ? are explored through the medium of education.
