Robert De Niro Is Haunted By Bernie Madoff's Bad Decisions In 'Wizard Of Lies' Teaser
Huffington Post - about 1 month
Robert De Niro has inhabited the psyches of some pretty damaged individuals over his career ― Anne Hathaway’s intern still ranks at number one obviously―  but Wall Street con man Bernie Madoff might be his most twisted role yet.  The first trailer for HBO’s “The Wizard of Lies” arrived Saturday and it looks like the television movie will be taking a surrealist approach to the life of the man responsible for one of the largest Ponzi scheme in U.S. history. Based on Diana B. Henriques’ book of the same name, “The Wizard of Lies” follows the rise and fall of the patriarch of the Madoff family, who profited an estimated $65 billion from duping thousands of investors to trust him with their money.  “What he did is beyond my comprehension, so there’s a disconnect somehow in him,” De Niro told reporters at the Television Critics Association event on Saturday. “And I still would like to understand. I did the best I could, but I don’t understand.” The film also stars Michelle Pfeiffe ...

Alec Baldwin Races Back to the Hamptons International Film Festival After his SNL Stint as Trump
Huffington Post - 5 months
Alec Baldwin does a spot on, hilarious Donald Trump, grimacing his way through his current vulgarity against women. That's why SNL called him back to Manhattan this weekend even while he was hosting his baby, the Hamptons International Film Festival. By Sunday he was back east, at the annual chairman's reception, addressing the crowd including Alex Gibney, Mariska Hargitay, Bob Balaban and many others. This is, after all, his first year as co-chairman. And now he's announced that he wants to make a documentary about Peggy Siegal! In its 24th year, the festival thrives. On the second full day of screenings, panels, and other gatherings, the crowd was ebullient. Baldwin especially noted the 10th anniversary of David Nugent at the festival. The programmer has had a special knack for bringing top films to the festival; many have gone on to Oscars and other big awards. Some of the highlights of this year's festival are Manchester by the Sea, Lion, La La Land, Moonlight, 20th Century Wome ...

Theater: "Winslow Boy" Guilty Of Success; "Juno And The Paycock" Not Framed; Driving Lessons
Huffington Post - over 3 years
THE WINSLOW BOY *** out of **** JUNO AND THE PAYCOCK ** out of **** HOW I LEARNED TO DRIVE ** out of **** THE WINSLOW BOY *** out of **** ROUNDABOUT THEATRE AT AMERICAN AIRLINES This is exactly what one expects of The Roundabout Theatre Company: a strong revival of a classic, traditional play. That's not as easy to do as it sounds, so let's celebrate when they succeed so well. In this case, it's almost shocking to realize that Terence Rattigan's durable drama The Winslow Boy hasn't appeared on Broadway since it debuted back in 1947. Thanks to the hoopla surrounding Rattigan's 100th birthday in 2011, the UK was flooded with good to great productions of this playwright once dismissed as rather middle of the road. People soon realized he was richer in talent than that. Here in the US, most of those shows didn't travel (though we did get to see a wonderful cinematic version of The Deep Blue Sea by the great film director Terence Davies). Happily, a UK production of The Winslow Boy ...

<i>The Winslow Boy</i>: Rattigan's Comfort Food in a Jaded Age
Huffington Post - over 3 years
At a time when government seems more interested in self-aggrandizing political posturing than in the individuals it represents, it is a pleasure and comfort to revisit an old chestnut like Terence Rattigan's The Winslow Boy if only to spend an evening in the consoling belief that right will triumph in the end. In a handsome and enjoyable Roundabout Theater revival that opened last night, Roger Rees delivers a sterling performance as the driven Arthur Winslow, father of the 13-year-old boy of the title who was expelled from the Royal Navy College, a military academy for young boys, under accusations he stole and cashed a classmate's five-shilling postal order. Rattigan was a master craftsman of the well-made play, drawing-room dramas that focused on real and petty crises in the lives of Britain's upper middle class. He was a leading light in the West End and on Broadway until the 1950's when the Angry Young Man and kitchen-sink realism of John Osborne and others elbowed him to the ...

The Lost Children of the Toronto Film Festival
Huffington Post - over 3 years
At the Toronto Film Festival 2013 it's all about the biggies: studio blockbusters sit lined up like rockets on launching pads, positioned for awards season. Most prominent, perhaps, is Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity. A thriller like you've never seen, it's about astro-scientists abandoned in space, offering mind-blowing visuals that make it a cinematic game changer, no question; any "story" attached is almost an afterthought. Sadly, auteurist or "smaller" films boasting a subtler artistry have been somewhat drowned out by the buzz from Gravity and such scenery chewers as John Wells's August: Osage County (which I have yet to see). Yet a pair of less-buzzed standouts have muscled to the forefront -- "Philomena" by Stephen Frears and Prisoners by new cinematic darling Denis Villeneuve -- marrying mainstream elements and crackerjack filmmaking to intelligence and vision. And: what better way to deliver a gut punch than tell a story of lost children? In Philomena Martin (Steve Coogan), ...

Nicki Richesin: Interview with Emily Mortimer
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Emily Mortimer is a terrific English actress who has shown her incredible emotional vulnerability in such films as Hugo, Lovely and Amazing, Shutter Island, and Lars and the Real Girl. Last year, she reinvented herself as gutsy executive producer MacKenzie McHale in Aaron Sorkin's The Newsroom on HBO. In perhaps her most stunning performance yet, Mortimer portrays Leonie Gilmour, the editor and mother of Isamu Noguchi, who travels the world in search of art and freedom. In the gorgeous new film Leonie, she bravely tells the story of this remarkable woman who nurtured her son's talent, as well as her own. Leonie opens in New York on March 22 at Clearview 1st and 62nd Cinemas. Nicki Richesin: I greatly enjoyed your brilliant portrayal of Leonie Gilmour in Leonie. In a sort of pivotal moment in the film you tell your son, "Your art will be your weapon. Your art will be your voice. There are no boundaries for an artist. No borders. Through art you can speak all languages an ...

Brian Formo: AFI Review: The Personal War of Ginger and Rosa
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Ginger and Rosa begins with an image of the spreading mushroom cloud detonation over Hiroshima in 1945. It ends with a confined familial implosion in 1962 London. The 17 years in between both situations are the ages of Ginger (Elle Fanning) and Rosa (Alice Englert); both were born on the same day in 1945 and have not separated since. Ginger is more reserved and hesitant than her counterpart, who is game for youthful dalliances; Ginger tags along with Rosa as Rosa searches for male attention, often finding it by hitch-hiking and smoking. She adores her father (Alessandro Nivola) who lives by his own principals as a pacifist and societal rule-breaker who was once jailed as a conscientious objector during World War II. Indeed her father, after indoctrinating her on the falsities of religion, tells her that as an authority figure (her father), she shouldn't listen to him or any authority. Ginger responds to this and to many other statements by Rosa and her godfathers (Timo ...

West Memphis 3 Film, THE DEVIL’S KNOT, Casts Alessandro Nivola
Boom Tron - over 4 years
I’m still getting used to the strange notion that they’re making a film of the West Memphis 3 case – arguably the case most influenced by film in history. And every time I get used to it, the project gets a little weirder. Today, the West Memphis 3 film, The Devil’s Knot, poured on another portion of strange by journeyman actor Alessandro Nivola in a starring role. To shed a little light on this oddity, here’s some background on the West Memphis 3 murders and trial: 3 pre-teen boys turn up stripped, bound and butchered in a West Memphis, Arkansas, gully back in the early ’90s. The cops respond to the local uproar by sweating a learning-disabled metal-head into giving a confession against himself and two other teens. The entire case falls apart when objective thinking so much as sneezes at it, but hysteria and a hanging judge see to it that the accused – “the West Memphis 3″ – get sent up for life. Fortunately for these kids – now 30-year-old convicts – a documentary crew filmed ...
