  • post From Ex Machina to Moonlight: how A24 disrupted Hollywood - 20 November
  • Can the US indie distributor become the new Miramax or Weinstein Company?It is not often that you notice logos at the beginning of movies, but one in particular is becoming unavoidable, especially if you?ve gone to the cinema looking for something a bit edgy and grown-up, but not old-fashioned. If you?re a fan of those sorts of films, then the sliding, retro-minimalist, white-on-black logo of A24 films is probably etched on to your subconscious. You can currently see it before The Killing of a Sacred Deer, The Florida Project and Good Time. And, soon, on The Disaster Artist, James Franco?s buzzed-about tribute to bad-movie titan Tommy Wiseau.

  • post The strange, sad story of Adam Deacon: 'I started thinking, will I ever act again?' - 19 November
  • The east London-born actor starred in films such as Kidulthood and pipped Eddie Redmayne to a Bafta. He was poised for Hollywood until a skunk-induced psychosis led to a row with mentor Noel Clarke and a restraining order. Now appearing on stage in The Retreat, he talks about seizing his second chanceWhen Adam Deacon beat Eddie Redmayne and Tom Hiddleston to the Bafta for rising star in 2012 it caused an upset. While Deacon was a working-class school dropout who played street boys, the Eton-educated Redmayne and Hiddleston were already Hollywood sex symbols in the making. But the upset was nothing compared with what came next. As Redmayne and Hiddleston continued their ascent to superstardom, nothing more was heard of Deacon ? until 2015, when he was sectioned under the Mental Health Act, convicted of harassing his former mentor and director Noel Clarke, and charged with possessing an offensive weapon after reportedly threatening members of the public with a ?machete-style knife?. Deacon?s fall was as strange as it was sad.But now he is back, starring in The Retreat, a new play by Peep Show writer Sam Bain and directed by Kathy Burke. The Retreat is about Luke, a successful young man addicted to work and prostitutes who escapes to a Buddhist retreat. Deacon plays Tony, his brother, a drug addict with violent tendencies and a way with words. Continue reading...

  • post The Incredibles 2: watch the first trailer for Pixar's superpowered sequel - 19 November
  • Brad Bird reunites a voice cast that includes Craig T Nelson, Holly Hunter and Samuel L Jackson for a follow-up to his acclaimed animated comedyThirteen years on from the release of acclaimed animated comedy The Incredibles, Pixar have given us another glimpse of the superpowered Parr family in the first teaser trailer for a forthcoming sequel.The Incredibles 2 reunites a voice cast that includes Craig T Nelson, Holly Hunter and Samuel L Jackson with original writer director Brad Bird in an adventure that will see Hunter?s character Helen, AKA Elastigirl, take centre stage, leaving Bob, AKA Mr Incredible (Nelson), to contend with the challenges of domestic life. The film will also see the Parr?s youngest member, baby Jack-Jack, begin to develop his own nascent powers. Continue reading...
  • post Good Time review ? Robert Pattinson excels in electrifying urban thriller - 19 November
  • Pattinson runs into a whole lot of trouble in this high-energy heist caper from rising indie stars Josh and Benny SafdieThis adrenalised street opera from feted indie film-makers Josh and Benny Safdie has been hailed in some quarters as a revelatory breakthrough for former Twilight star Robert Pattinson, shedding his celebrity status to ?disappear? into the role of an aggressively unsympathetic street hustler. Yet Pattinson (who I thought was terrific in the sneeringly maligned teen-vampire series) has always been much more than a pretty face, proving his mettle in films such as David Cronenberg?s Cosmopolis, Brady Corbet?s The Childhood of a Leader, and James Gray?s The Lost City of Z. For me, the real revelation of Good Time comes from seeing the Safdies finally fulfil the promise of 2009?s Daddy Longlegs and 2014?s Heaven Knows What, creating an electrifying urban thriller that combines authenticity with accessibility in a compact, combustible package.

  • post Why she killed herself: a film-maker's painful search for meaning in her sister's belongings - 18 November
  • After her big sister took her own life Hope Litoff sought answers in her journals, art and old pill bottles ? and made a brutally candid film, 32 Pills, of the processWhen Hope Litoff?s sister Ruth, a talented photographer and artist, killed herself, her belongings were put in storage because there were ?too painful to look at and too important to throw away?.Six years on and still struggling to understand why Ruth took her life, Hope decided to search for answers in the journals, piles of artworks, and boxes filled with bottles of prescription pills and more mundane items that were gathering dust in the lock-up. She filmed the process, including her emotional unravelling and return to alcoholism as she confronted her grief. Continue reading...
  • post 'Rape is a rampant issue'; taboo drama Verna battles the censors in Pakistan - 17 November
  • Rejected for its ?edgy content?, Shoaib Mansoor?s timely revenge thriller has finally made it into cinemas after a public backlash. Is the country?s film industry ready for change?
    In recent years, Pakistan has seen a huge resurgence of its film industry, which has emerged from the shadow of Bollywood to find its own identity, one at the forefront of the battle between a growing conservatism in the country and an emboldened youth hungry for change. There?s a notable trend towards female-led narratives, which are not only setting new standards in storytelling, but also challenging taboos around the treatment of women in society. The battle to get the voices and experiences of women on screen achieved a much-needed victory this week when the Pakistani censor board backed down over a decision to ban a new film about the injustices faced by rape victims in the country ? a development that shows that Pakistan might be ready for change both on screen and off.

  • post Justice League ? hit or miss for the DC Extended Universe? Discuss with spoilers - 17 November
  • It has patched-together directing, shoddy special effects and a wetter than ever Batman, but is the latest DCEU instalment still worth watching?? This article contains spoilers Just when you thought it was safe to head back into the Twittersphere, the ongoing war between Marvel and DC fanboys and girls is about to reignite. Why? Because the critics don?t really like new DC Extended Universe instalment, Justice League, much more than they did the operatically dark and muddled Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, or the bombastically nonsensical Suicide Squad. That?s now three out of four movies in this new superhero cinematic realm that have failed to pass muster, with only Patty Jenkins? Wonder Woman standing tall.

  • post Is Get Out a horror film, a comedy ... or a documentary? - 17 November
  • Jordan Peele?s film has been submitted in the comedy/musical category at the Golden Globes, prompting debate over which genre it belongs to. What?s inarguable is the significance of its race-relations message
    One of the most striking images from Get Out is a closeup of British actor Daniel Kaluuya wide-eyed in shock as tears stream down his face. As the $4.5m indie horror evolved this year from buzzed-about Sundance hit to $250m-grossing global phenomenon, this image increasingly became the go-to visual to accompany admiring features and reviews, because it effectively communicates something of the movie?s unsettling nature. (Spoiler: Kaluuya?s tears are not a byproduct of mirth.) Which makes it all the stranger that much of this week has been given over to a wide-ranging discussion as to whether Jordan Peele?s high-tension satirical horror should be classified as a comedy.It is all because of the baked-in eccentricities of the Golden Globes. The gong-dispensing offshoot of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) essentially hands out two best picture awards every January, one for drama and one for comedy/musical. If Get Out can smuggle itself into the latter category, it arguably has more of a fighting chance: instead of going head-to-head with Christopher Nolan?s war epic Dunkirk, a likely drama frontrunner, it can compete against more modestly budgeted fare such as romcom The Big Sick or tennis tale Battle of the Sexes. Despite being voted on by only 90 international journalists, the Globes are viewed as a bellwether for the Oscars. If Peele?s film can carve out a win, the thinking goes, it might fuel an underdog narrative all the way to the Academy Awards. Continue reading...
  • post Cate Blanchett: artists are being silenced - 17 November
  • A news anchor, a widow, a bearded drunk ? Cate Blanchett?s new film sees the actor take on 13 personas in a script cribbed from 50 revolutionary texts. She and director Julian Rosefeldt explain why Manifesto is an artistic call to arms in the age of TrumpHere?s Cate Blanchett as you?ve never seen her before: as a bearded old man pulling a shopping cart through a post-industrial wasteland. In a drunken Scottish accent he/she proclaims: ?We glorify the revolution aloud as the only engine of life. We glorify the vibrations of the inventors young and strong. They carry the flaming torch of the revolution!? Now Blanchett is a grieving widow telling a funeral congregation, ?to lick the penumbra and float in the big mouth filled with honey and excrement?. Now she?s an American news anchor in the studio, talking to a reporter standing in the rain under an umbrella. The reporter is also Blanchett. ?Well Cate, perhaps this could all be dealt with if man was not facing a black hole,? she tells her other self. Now she?s a 1950s mother, clasping her hands in prayer before the Thanksgiving family dinner: ?I am for art that comes out of a chimney like black hair and scatters in the sky,? she murmurs, as the children eye the turkey hungrily.
