  • post Would ?intimacy directors? make shooting sex scenes safer? - 21 November
  • The film, theatre and TV industries have problems with sexual abuse, but a new initiative seeks to make nude scenes a more comfortable experience for actorsIt is now well-established that the film, theatre and TV worlds have serious problems with sexual assault and harassment. There are, of course, predators and abuses of power in every industry, but performers (as well as crew members) are in a business where boundaries are blurred in the name of art; kissing and intimately touching virtual strangers are often a legitimate part of the job. This week, the Stage reported that Ita O?Brien, a movement director, and her agents Chris Carey and Sam Dodd, had drawn up a set of guidelines to protect actors, from the audition stage to being on set.These include not asking for nudity or simulated sex at auditions, making sure everyone knows what is expected in terms of sex scenes, having a minimal number of people on set during such scenes, and small but significant things, such as having dressing gowns to hand. O?Brien also recommends employing an ?intimacy director? to monitor sex scenes and ensure that people adhere to the safeguarding measures. ?Invariably, whenever there isn?t transparency, whenever everybody isn?t in agreement and knows what?s going on, that?s when actors are left vulnerable,? she said.

  • post Justice League lays down the law at top of the UK box office - 21 November
  • DC superheroes reign supreme as Paddington 2?s Peruvian émigré leaves Murder on the Orient Express at the platformThe $94m debut for Justice League in the US has been branded a disappointment, but it?s not so clear that the £7.26m UK debut can be so easily described. First, if previews are ignored, that figure ranks as the eighth-biggest opening of 2017, behind Beauty and the Beast, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, Despicable Me 3, Dunkirk, It, Fast & Furious 8 and Paddington 2. So, not so shabby. Continue reading...
  • post Exhibition on Screen: David Hockney at the Royal Academy of Arts review ? a master in sharp focus - 21 November
  • This illuminating documentary portrait details the undimmed curiosity and enthusiasm of the grand old man of British paintingIn recent years, David Hockney has become the grand old man of British painting, with a giant touring exhibition, A Bigger Picture, in 2012 and a high profile 2014 documentary called, yes, Hockney. With these in mind, this latest offering from the Exhibition on Screen series is a little more modest, taking its cues from the Bigger Picture show with its revelatory multiframe landscapes and the more recent David Hockney RA: 82 Portraits and 1 Still Life.There?s copious interview material with the artist, conducted by a slightly starry-eyed Tim Marlow, along with contributions from the Guardian?s Jonathan Jones. Hockney still seemingly maintains his transnational life, moving backwards and forwards between the US (where he created seminal works such as A Bigger Splash) and the UK, where his regular driving trips encouraged a new appreciation for his home country?s landscape.

  • post Losing the X Factor: is it time for the X-Men universe to stop expanding? - 21 November
  • News that James Franco will play Multiple Man in a new film is just the latest attempt to add layers to a cinematic world that?s struggling to take shapeWhen James Franco entered talks to play superhero Multiple Man in an upcoming movie, we can only imagine the actor, director, screenwriter, musician and poet saw the character as a metaphor for his own creative endeavours. For Marvel mutant James Madrox was named for a useful ability to duplicate himself countless times over, meaning he is capable of living scores of lives all at once.

  • post Mel Gibson: Weinstein scandal is a 'precursor to change' - 21 November
  • Star, dogged by claims of racist and misogynistic behaviour, says he welcomes ?light being thrown where there were shadows?Mel Gibson has spoken out about the sexual harassment scandal in Hollywood, saying the wave of accusations against Harvey Weinstein have been ?painful? but will lead to change in the industry. The actor and Oscar-winning director, who has faced repeated damaging allegations of racist and misogynistic behaviour, said: ?Things got shaken up a little bit and there is a lot of light being thrown into places where there were shadows and that is kind of healthy. It?s painful, but I think pain is a precursor to change.? Continue reading...
  • post Coco review ? Pixar's vibrant, melancholic adventure is a refreshing return to form - 21 November
  • The story of a Mexican boy stuck in the Land of the Dead uses familiar Disney tropes but feels fresh thanks to a combination of humor, music and emotionThe superficial checklist for a Disney animation usually contains an important moral lesson, a wacky animal sidekick, an asexual romance and at least one frantic chase scene. But buried underneath the bright color palette often lies a bittersweet tone and a surprisingly deft examination of grief. In films from Bambi to The Lion King to Frozen to, most notably, Up, slapstick antics have sat alongside impactful stories of loss, adding rich emotional texture to a light canvas and teaching a younger audience about death without employing a heavy hand.

  • post Bye bye Batman: should Ben Affleck bow out as the caped crusader? - 21 November
  • Justice League?s weak box office performance spotlights Affleck?s tricky position ? whether to limp on, or join the order of failed dark knightsIf there is a ?Batman curse? affecting those who have pulled on the cape and cowl on the big screen, it is not always a lasting one. George Clooney recovered from portraying a detested version of Gotham?s dark knight for Joel Schumacher in 1997?s Batman & Robin to become one of Hollywood?s most celebrated actors and film-makers. Christian Bale is rarely out of the awards season spotlight for long, and Michael Keaton is currently experiencing a gilded career revival that has even seen him return to superhero movies. It would be fair to say, however, that the role can be something of a poisoned chalice. Clooney was perhaps fortunate to recover from the critical drubbing handed to Schumacher?s film (his co-star Chris O?Donnell never really did) and Val Kilmer?s career certainly hit the skids after he took the lead role in 1995?s Batman Forever. Both actors were unfortunate to have been cast as Batman while Warner Bros encouraged Schumacher to indulge his penchant for kitsch and camp as a reaction to Tim Burton?s gothic take on the caped crusader in 1989?s Batman and 1992 sequel Batman Returns.

  • post Dramatic victory: are we entering a golden age for the sports documentary? - 20 November
  • Sport?s screen outings have long been blighted by timidity but two new films, 89 and Kenny, tell stirring stories with style and swagger. And there?s more to comeIt seems fair to say sports documentary films reached something of an early artistic end-point with 1971?s Football As Never Before, a feature-length George Best portrait by the West German arthouse director Hellmuth Costard ? best known for his 1968 work Especially Valuable, which featured a talking penis quoting passages of government legislation.Presented without voiceover or soundtrack, Football As Never Before is an hour and 45 minutes of a single camera following its star around the pitch during a Manchester United game against Coventry City. Whatever its ultimate merits ? and FANB does provide an absolute gold standard in mesmeric closeup shots focused, for long periods, entirely on George Best?s buttocks ? the film also speaks to a more basic confusion over what exactly to do with sport on camera.

  • 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. Related: The Florida Project?s Sean Baker: ?I wanted the kids to be the kings and queens of their domain? Continue reading...
  • post Call to stub out on-screen smoking in French films - 20 November
  • Injecting morality into films is ?like pouring cola into a Château Lafite?, one critic of idea declaresThe French actor Jean-Paul Belmondo spent almost an entire film ? the 1960s classic À Bout du Souffle (Breathless) ? with a Gauloise dangling from his lips. Audrey Tautou portrayed the designer Coco Chanel pinning haute couture dresses while smoking. Jacques Tati was rarely without his pipe and Brigitte Bardot, Jeanne Moreau, Catherine Deneuve, Gérard Depardieu and Alain Delon all puffed their way through decades of movies.Hardly surprising then that a call for French directors to stub out smoking on screen has been greeted with a mix of disbelief and outright ridicule. It has also prompted the existential question: what would French cinema be without the cigarette? Continue reading...
