William Bradley: Skyfall in Perspective
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Skyfall is a smash hit, well on its way to being the biggest Bond film of the modern era. But what does it mean and where does it fit in the Bond canon and the current scene? Please be advised that there are massive spoilers ahead. There's no other way to unpack this film without discussing them and their meaning. Incidentally, my archive of articles related to Bond at 50 can be found here. Frankly, it's the sort of film I had hoped for in this 50th anniversary year of the Bond film franchise. Some of the scenes in Skyfall are literally breathtaking. The cinematography is great, the casting is outstanding, the performances excellent, the action stunning. It's a deeply resonant movie in terms of contemporary and timeless themes and the continuity of the series. Bond stands atop the Department of Energy and Climate Change looking out over a stunningly patriotic London skyline in Skyfall. After opening big in dozens of markets around the world, Skyfall took in $10 ...

What 'Anna Karenina' Star Keira Knightley Isn't Good At
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Since Leo Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina" was published in 1877, there have been some 25 adaptations of the epic novel for either film or television, with actresses from Greta Garbo to Vivien Leigh to Sophie Marceau in the title role of Anna. Because of that history, did Keira Knightley, who stars in a brand-new version of "Anna Karenina," have any concern about stepping in to play the famed character? "Joe Wright literally said, 'How about 'Anna Karenina'?' And I said, 'Yes,'" Knightley told HuffPost Entertainment in a recent interview. "I said 'yes' faster than I said it right then." "Anna Karenina" is the third film Wright and Knightley have made together since 2005; the pair previously collaborated on "Pride and Prejudice," which earned Knightley her only Oscar nomination, and "Atonement," which was nominated for seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture. Those expecting a staid period piece from the duo, however, might be disappointed: This version of "Anna Karenina," ...

Get Out of the Subway, Isabelle!
The Portland Mercury - over 4 years
This Possession movie is nuts, man. by Ned Lannamann FANS OF MINDFUCK CINEMA shouldn't miss this weekend's screening of a new, uncut 35mm print of Possession, Andrzej Żulawski's 1981 exploration of jealousy and madness. Made in the aftermath of a messy divorce and Żulawski's exile from his native Poland, it's a movie so relentlessly strange and so soul-shatteringly unnerving that it defies synopsis. But here goes: Anna (Isabelle Adjani) tells her husband Mark (Sam Neill) that she has been seeing someone else. He goes crazy and confronts the lover; she hides out in a secret apartment from both men. When Mark hires a private eye to trail her, something unspeakably horrific is revealed. To say more is both spoilerish and pointless: Possession's plot progresses in a way that can only be interpreted by the subconscious. Dreams become reality and terrors are both vocalized and visualized; the film shifts between Anna and Mark's perspectiv ...

Is the ‘End of the World’ a New Beginning for Keira Knightley?
BBC Blogs- America - over 4 years
Keira Knightley, with Steve Carell in the background in 'Seeking a Friend for the End of the World' (Darren Michaels/Focus Features) Before she turned 21, Keira Knightley had already been nominated for an Oscar for Best Actress for her role as Elizabeth Bennet in the 2005 movie version of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice. That role, along with her appearances in the first three blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean films, catapulted the English actress to the front rank of Hollywood as The Next Big Thing – briefly. Today (June 22), Knightley will open in Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, an appealing apocalyptic romance in which she co-stars with Steve Carell. They play a seemingly mismatched pair who becomes friendly as the planet awaits a cataclysmic collision with a giant asteroid. The low-budget, small scale film is likely to win favorable reviews, as will Knightley for her engaging performance as a free-spirited, old vinyl LP-loving Brit. She gets to show of ...
