  • post Quentin Tarantino remembers Reservoir Dogs: 'I counted the walkouts' - 29 April
  • Director tells Tribeca Festival first public screening of his debut was ?a fucking disaster? but revels in memory of dancing when Harvey Keitel came onboardWhen Reservoir Dogs hit theaters in 1992, it rocketed a young filmmaker from obscurity and reinvented independent film. On Friday night, to mark the 25th anniversary of Quentin Tarantino?s gritty, violent and groundbreaking tale of crime and betrayal, the director and cast members Steve Buscemi, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth and Harvey Keitel reunited for a screening at the Tribeca Film Festival.

  • post 'It made my children cry': when real-life figures hate their biopics - 28 April
  • Madonna has expressed her unhappiness over unauthorised biopic Blond Ambition, but she?s not the first famous person to get annoyedMadonna is disgruntled. Blond Ambition, the biopic of her early days, is arguably one of the most anticipated movies of recent years. Its script was so acclaimed that it topped last year?s Black List. It?s being made by Michael De Luca, who produced The Social Network. It has the potential to do the business both critically and commercially. But Madonna hates it.

  • post Baahubali 2: The Conclusion review ? joyous action epic soars - 28 April
  • The second part of India?s most expensive film ever is a jaw-dropping blockbuster that combines nimble action with genuine heart2015?s Baahubali: The Beginning, the impressive first chunk of India?s most expensive film yet, built towards a literal cliffhanger, with a strongman knifed in the back by a trusted associate on the mountain it had taken just shy of three hours to climb. Not untypical of a film hungrily synthesising centuries? worth of sacred and secular myths, that shock was always going to be tricky to top ? so it?s a relief to report that The Conclusion opens with a no less jawdropping set-to between the
    hero?s mother and a stampeding elephant. Here, once again, is thunderous spectacle unlikely to be surpassed in several summers, and clinching proof of writer-director SS Rajamouli?s position among world cinema?s boldest imagemakers.

  • post Gwyneth Paltrow launches Goop as glossy Condé Nast magazine - 28 April
  • Actor turned wellness guru who introduced world to vaginal steaming is to bring Goop brand to volatile magazine marketGwyneth Paltrow, having conquered the worlds of acting, macrobiotic cookery and high-end fashion, is to launch a quarterly magazine published by Condé Nast. The magazine, named Goop after Paltrow?s lifestyle brand, will be available on newsstands from September. The magazine will focus on wellness ? a trillion-dollar industry of which Paltrow has long been at the vanguard. Continue reading...

  • Did you spot the big twist coming? Does the music paper over narrative cracks? Has there ever been a more engaging all-CGI character than Baby Groot?This article contains spoilers
    Marvel?s latest episode is a palpable hit with the critics, with a more-than-decent 87 per cent ?fresh? rating on Rotten Tomatoes compared with 91% for the smash hit original. Here?s a chance to give your verdict on the movie?s key talking points. Continue reading...
  • post Woody Harrelson webchat ? post your questions now - 28 April
  • The Hollywood star is joining us to answer your questions in a live webchat on Monday 1 May ? post them in the comments below 10.56am BST Since his breakthrough as a dopey bartender in Cheers, Woody Harrelson has been an endearing Hollywood fixture ? and nominated for two Oscars along the way. His broad grin and lugubrious Texan drawl make him a natural for goofy comedy, such as upcoming indie comic-book adaptation Wilson. But he can flip to stone-faced seriousness in works such as Natural Born Killers, True Detective and The Hunger Games franchise ? just one of his blockbuster projects, which also include War for the Planet of the Apes, and the Star Wars spin-off movie about Han Solo.

  • post Heal the Living review ? pulsating transplant drama - 30 April
  • Katell Quillévéré?s audacious feature follows a human heart from donor to recipient, stirring strong emotions and showing breathtaking visual skill?Careful. No powerful emotions.? Claire (Anne Dorval) smiles wryly, undermining the brittle anxieties of her loved ones by gently mocking the cardiac disease that could shutter her life at any moment. The fiftysomething mother of two adult sons, Claire is the end point of the journey of the closest thing that this film has to a central character: the human heart that we follow from accident-victim donor to critically ill recipient.And ?no powerful emotions? is central to the approach that French director Katell Quillévéré adopts for her stunning third feature, an adaptation of last week?s 2017 Wellcome Book prize-winning novel Mend the Living by Maylis de Kerangal. No swampy melodrama or misery tourism here. Quillévéré favours uncluttered empathy over sentimentality. Her film-making is as clinical and precise as a scalpel incision, but it?s also peppered with moments of lyricism. It reminded me a little of the blend of lean realism and transports of fantasy of Jacques Audiard?s A Prophet. And yes, it really is that good. Continue reading...
  • post Casting JonBenet; Why Him?; I.T.; Diving Into the Unknown and more ? review - 30 April
  • Kitty Green?s study of the unsolved murder of the child beauty queen is a multilayered masterpiece ? and clever Netflix have acquired itThe risk of repeating oneself too frequently in a weekly column is one to be carefully considered, though sometimes the vagaries of the release schedule make it unavoidable: for the second week running, a Netflix premiere handily trumps any new offerings on the DVD shelf. The streaming giant?s intelligent taste in documentary cinema has been known for some time now, but in grabbing Casting JonBenet straight from the festival circuit ? it premiered in Sundance only three months ago ? the company has outdone itself.Notwithstanding its absence from cinemas, Kitty Green?s film is the most brilliantly singular nonfiction achievement we?ve seen on any screen this year: a sinuous, multi-mirrored meditation on tragedy, exploitation and personal and communal grief, as explored through complex layers of confession and artifice.

  • post Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 review ? a so-so sequel for Marvel?s nerdy outsiders - 30 April
  • While driven along by its wisecracking banter, by the end there?s little to distinguish this from the rest of the superhero stableTwo episodes in and the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise is already starting to feel like an ironic, pop-cultural reference bingo card. And while I?m as much a sucker for ELO?s Mr Blue Sky on a soundtrack as the next guy, I?m beginning to wonder whether chucking in a namecheck for Pac-Man or Knight Rider whenever there?s a lull in the banter is really enough to distinguish this series from the rest of the Marvel mulch.That?s not to say that the film isn?t enormous fun. The USP of the Guardians films remains the deft writing by James Gunn. If the Avengers film scripts are the charismatic Alpha frat heroes, Guardians of the Galaxy represents the wisecracking nerdy outsiders. Which, let?s face it, is always going to play well with a comic-book-movie audience. The space pirate steampunk aesthetic gives the movie a distinctively battered and cranky appeal. The story, which sees Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) unravel the question of his true parentage, goes heavy on themes of family and redemption. Still, in the generic, effects-heavy blitzkrieg of a final act, the film loses both the human(ish) connection and the scrappy maverick spirit that sets it apart from its Marvel stablemates.

  • post An offer they couldn't refuse: The Godfather cast reunite, 45 years on - 30 April
  • Stars get together in New York to swap stories about casting, drinking and even mooning during the making of the filmsDebilitating studio battles. One miraculously still cat. Mooning contests between James Caan and Marlon Brando. These were the memories shared, 45 years later, on the making of The Godfather in a rare reunion of the film?s cast and director Francis Ford Coppola in New York.With the stage decorated to resemble the library of Brando?s Don Corleone, and a portrait of the actor hanging above, Coppola and cast members Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Robert Duvall, James Caan, Diane Keaton and Talia Shire, gathered together once again on Saturday. The night at at Radio City Music Hall was organised by De Niro as the closing evening of his Tribeca Film Festival, which preceded the affair with a grand double feature of The Godfather, parts one and two.
