A Conversation with Stanley Tucci About 'Final Portrait' in Berlin
Huffington Post - 9 days
It is obvious that we live during times where escapist entertainment is welcomed. The various award statuettes a certain modern musical has been collecting, one after the other lately are proof of that. But are we simply running away from daily life by walking into a darkened movie theater to watch a film, or are we actively searching for something, a new way to look at the life we have, which may make it more bearable, through art? It's a question I ask myself through my writing, almost every day. I seem to have found an answer in Stanley Tucci's Final Portrait. OK, even in the figure of Tucci himself, who has long been a dream interview of mine. But at Berlinale, you see, dreams do come true. Final Portrait is a languid, thoughtful and at times infuriatingly recurrent film about a moment in time in the life of Alberto Giacometti, the sculptor and visual artist born in Switzerland, who lived most of his life in Paris. It describes the sitting sessions -- a promised "one ...

Prepare To Fall For Armie Hammer And Timothée Chalamet In The Gay Romance 'Call Me By Your Name'

André Aciman’s 2007 novel has become known for many traits ― its wistful recollection of first love, its sun-soaked Italian backdrop, a sensuality that crescendoes with furtive embraces and swift yearnings. These hallmarks coalesce in the story’s signature scene: a teenager fornicating with a peach. The book’s disciples will wonder how this tantalizing moment ...

Tom Ford, Newly Enlightened
Huffington Post - 3 months
Tom Ford is not the same person he was 10 years ago.  Recovering from an acrimonious split with Gucci after a decade as the brand’s creative director, Ford had just launched his eponymous line. “I knew I wanted to go back into fashion, but I also still want to do a film — I don’t even want to get into it, because everybody will laugh at me and I’m sick of it, but I am really serious about making movies and I will get one made,” Ford told New York magazine in 2007. Two years later, he self-financed the tender, surreal “A Single Man,” which won enthusiastic reviews and an Oscar nomination for Colin Firth. He has since dressed Michelle Obama for dinner at Buckingham Palace, inspired a Jay Z song and welcomed a son with his husband.  No one is laughing at Ford anymore. His second directorial effort, “Nocturnal Animals,” opens this weekend. The layered melodrama has proven more divisive than “A Single Man,” and that’s a good thing. People pay attention to Ford’s films.  Based ...

Robert Vaughn, 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' Star, Dead At 83
Huffington Post - 3 months
Robert Vaughn, who starred as Napoleon Solo on TV’s “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” from 1964-68, died Friday morning of acute leukemia, his manager Matthew Sullivan told Variety. He was 83. Vaughn began undergoing treatment for the illness this year on the East Coast. The James Bond-influenced “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.,” in which Vaughn’s Solo and David McCallum’s Illya Kuryakin battled the evil forces of T.H.R.U.S.H. around the globe (thanks to the glories of stock footage), was quite the pop-culture phenomenon in the mid-1960s, even as the show’s tone wavered from fairly serious to cartoonish and back again over its four seasons. It spawned a spinoff, “The Girl From U.N.C.L.E.,” starring Stefanie Powers, as well as a few feature adaptations during the run of the TV series — “One Spy Too Many,” “One of Our Spies Is Missing,” and “The Karate Killers” — that starred Vaughn and McCallum. Vaughn also guested as Napoleon Solo on sitcom “Please Don’t Eat the Daisies” and made an uncred ...

Gabrielle Union Wants To Have An Honest Conversation About Amy Schumer’s White Privilege
Huffington Post - 5 months
Ahead of the release of her new film “The Birth of a Nation,” Gabrielle Union has refused to stay silent about the oppressions large and small faced by black Americans. She’s already penned a powerful op-ed about “Nation” director Nate Parker’s rape allegations and her own history with sexual assault. Now, in a new interview with the website xoNecole, the actress believes Hollywood is long overdue for an honest conversation about white privilege, one in which she intends to involve Amy Schumer and Kate Upton.  In order to begin to see change start to occur, we have to be willing to have conversations with people who have different opinions than us. I’ve already talked to Lena Dunham; I would love to talk to Kate Upton and Amy Schumer. Maybe I can help to explain the oppressive systems that have benefited and allowed them to say these careless, insensitive and offensive things. Those conversations are awkward as f**k and they get heated. Similar to watching people have conver ...

You're Going To Remember Aja Naomi King's Name
Huffington Post - about 1 year
2016 is gearing up to be a defining year for actress Aja Naomi King. After almost two seasons on ABC's "How to Get Away with Murder," King's performance as Cherry, the wife of slave rebellion leader Nat Turner, in "The Birth of a Nation," is a major departure from ambitious law student Michaela Pratt. What connects the roles of women past and present, however, is King's passion for projects that have an impact on audiences long after the screen cuts to black.  Scoring a record-shattering $17.5 million from Fox Searchlight for distribution rights and receiving three standing ovations at Sundance, "The Birth of a Nation" reclaims its name from D.W. Griffith's now infamously racist 1915 propaganda film. The passion project written by, directed by and starring Nate Parker traces the story of a slave uprising on a Virginia plantation in 1831, and yet remains deeply connected to the social inequities of present day.  "There are people that are still feeling the effects of that trauma ...

The Best Films 2015
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Movies have become a great comfort in what has been a tumultuous year. They've entertained us. Made us laugh, feel courageous, scared, romantic and educated us too. It's a perfect time to reflect on the films, performances and black artists who made 2015 special. And might as well get a head start on the high-quality movies that will contend for Oscars and be released in theaters and on DVD/VOD in weeks to come. Straight Outta Compton -- One of the Best Movies of 2015 Amy (***1/2) Amy Winehouse burned bright like a firefly and died just about as quickly. Her jazzy, smooth and tortured Billie Holidayish voice haunts the soundtrack. Her infamous drug addiction and self-destructive relationships are on view. A brilliant and sobering documentary by director Asif Kapadia. Black Panthers: Vanguard of a Revolution (****) Whittling down what must have been countless hours of possibilities (archival footage, interviews, photos) into a thought-provoking and coherent documentary about ...

What 2013 taught us about movies - and what we ignored
San Francisco Chronicle - about 3 years
Epic cinematography detailing the destruction of the world's largest cities, the unabated ascendance of Jennifer Lawrence, a summer season that left a lot of people frowning. Spielberg said in June that the movie business would soon implode, with a series of $250 million movies failing drastically and altering the course of the industry. At the core of this were sequels: new "Despicable Me," "Iron Man," "Fast and Furious," "Star Trek," "Monsters, Inc." and Superman movies grossed almost $2 billion. According to Rotten Tomatoes, 88 of 95 tracked reviewers hated "Grown Ups 2." Audiences failed to bond with new stars in major studio fare, such as Armie Hammer in "The Lone Ranger," while the 2013 Golden Globe nominations were stacked with nods for the Redfords, Hankses, Blanchetts and Bullocks of the world. After a muted response to "Cars 2" in 2011 and word of a "Finding Nemo" update set for 2016, the studio promised to lay off the sequels for now before delaying the release of "The ...
