Jessica Chastain Plays A Lobbyist In 'Miss Sloane,' But You Can't Lobby Her To Watch 'The Tree Of Life'
Huffington Post - over 1 year
In “Miss Sloane,” Jessica Chastain plays a no-frills Washington lobbyist who’d sooner burn everyone in her path than fail. A fan of black power suits and pill-popping, Elizabeth Sloane is brash and intimidating ― the exact opposite of Chastain, whose 12-year career has lent her a reputation as one of the nice ones in Hollywood.  Opening in limited release this weekend, “Miss Sloane” once again places Chastain in the middle of a congested Best Actress race. It would mark her third Oscar nomination, after “The Help” and “Zero Dark Thirty.” I sat down with Chastain last month to discuss the movie, women’s roles in the lobbying world, preparing to play Tammy Wynette and why she can’t watch “The Tree of Life.” Elizabeth Sloane is like Olivia Pope from “Scandal” meets Carrie Mathieson from “Homeland.” [Laughs] That’s a really interesting parallel to make. For me, “Sloane” is a story about addiction because she’s addicted to the win. I think Carrie is like that in “Homeland.” But ...

Hail, Caesar! review – superbly silly
Guardian (UK) - almost 2 years
The Coen brothers conjure up nostalgic joy from this hilarious knockabout homage to the golden age of film The Coen brothers’ lovingly goofy latest comes on like a breezy flipside companion-piece to Barton Fink – a jaunt through the underbelly of old Hollywood which finds not the fiery hell of the tortured artist but the upbeat splash of synchronised swimming, On the Town toe-tapping and toga-wearing biblical balderdash. With a ramshackle plot that appears to have been cooked up after drawing deep on the Dude’s biggest bong, the film pinballs between awol movie stars, red-scare nightmares and Bikini Atoll bomb tests, while raising important questions of whether God is still angry (“what, he got over it?”), how to make a lasso out of spaghetti, and the secret of balancing a bunch of bananas on your head (it’s all in the hips, lips, eyes and thighs, apparently). It’s 1951, and the motion picture industry is responding to the threat of television with colourful choreography, escapist r...

Hail, Caesar! review: Coen bros hit peak star-cameo in superb sister film to Barton Fink
Guardian (UK) - about 2 years
George Clooney plays the actor whose disappearance is a headache for studio boss Josh Brolin in the Coens’ glorious tribute to Hollywood’s golden age Not for the first time, the Coen brothers have reached back to the studio sound stages and producers’ offices of the Hollywood golden age to find their material. Their parallel film is Barton Fink, in which earnest playwright John Turturro heads to Los Angeles to write wrestling pictures. Hail, Caesar! is a much sunnier picture, and more purely comedic than its sepulchral predecessor; it’s also put together with a lissom confidence and a breeziness that more than compensates for a gossamer lightness when it comes to substance. The year is 1951, and Hail, Caesar! is the name of the film within a film, a clunky Roman epic with religious overtones – more along the lines of Quo Vadis than Ben-Hur, despite sharing the latter’s subtitle: A Tale of the Christ. George Clooney plays its star, an actor called Baird Whitlock, who disappears from ...

DVDs: A Lost Masterpiece, TV's Coolest New Show (This Week) And More
Huffington Post - about 2 years
A new year and a new flood of DVD and BluRay releases. We start with a lost landmark of French cinema, dive into the coolest show on TV (at least until yet another one is dubbed even cooler next week) and then all bets are off. It's only January and thanks to the ever-rising spectre of streaming video on demand, studios are emptying their vaults faster than ever. OUT 1 BOXED SET ($99.95 BluRay and DVD combo; Carlotta) Like Abel Gance's Napoleon, French director Jacques Rivette's 1971 masterpiece Out 1 is much-discussed but rarely seen, a rabbit-hole of a movie that's more than 12 hours long (in one version) and essentially invisible. Napoleon is difficult to screen for technical reasons; Out 1 simply wasn't available. Now finally the movie has been restored and screened in cinemas. But it will surely find its real audience via this beautifully made boxed set. Like the standard bearers from Criterion, this release from Carlotta is impeccable. You get the entire 12+ hour ep...

The Best Films 2015
Huffington Post - about 2 years
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.
