Sundance Review: Joe Swanberg's 'Happy Christmas' Starring Anna Kendrick, Melanie Lynskey & Lena Dunham

fb.indiewire.com – As perhaps the poster boy for independent cinema in the last seven to eight years, it’s crazy to realize that lo-fi filmmaker Joe Swanberg has never been in competition at the Sundance Film Festival before. While two of his films have played in Park City previously (though one was a short segment in “V/H/S”), Swanberg and his zeitgeist-defining mumblecore movement (read: 3 years 47 weeks ago via jackiechan

Sundance Review: Ira Sachs' ‘Love Is Strange’ Is A Brilliantly-Performed Romance That’s Always Real

fb.indiewire.com – Directed by Ira Sachs ("Keep the Lights On," "Married Life"), "Love Is Strange" depicts a New York love affair whose depth of feeling is only matched by the length of its duration. George (Alfred Molina) and Ben (John Lithgow) have been together for 39 years, and as the film begins they’re fussing and getting ready for a big event – after all these years, they’re finally going to (and for that matter, finally able to) get married. 3 years 47 weeks ago via donnieyen

Sundance Review: Joe Swanberg Keeps Maturing with Strong Family Comedy 'Happy Christmas'

feedproxy.google.com – As Joe Swanberg matures as a filmmaker, he's looking at what happens to the Mumblecore generation once they get older: They're not yet middle-aged, but they're also no longer comfortably in the aimless twentysomething sweet spot that once defined the genre. In the very good “Happy Christmas,” which premiered in competition at Sundance, wife and mother Kelly (Melanie Lynskey) is burdened with too many responsibilities, while her younger and wilder sister-in-law Jenny (Anna Kendrick, "Drinking Buddies") is burdened with too few.Jenny is a mess. 3 years 47 weeks ago via brucelee

Sundance Review: 'The Voices' Starring Ryan Reynolds Wrings Dark Comedy From Candy-Colored Carnage

fb.indiewire.com – The fourth film from director Marjane Satrapi ("Persepolis," "Chicken with Plums"), "The Voices" navigates the line between the gruesome and the goofy with a step as nimble as a tight-rope walker going over a sea of broken glass. It’s an extraordinarily warm and funny movie about a likable schizophrenic murderer; it’s candy-colored and meticulously composed and yet also shiny with fresh wet blood. 3 years 47 weeks ago via jetli

'Man of Steel' Early Screening Reaction: A 'Nolan Story with Snyder Action'

screenrant.com – The Man of Steel trailers released so far paint director Zack Snyder’s Superman movie reboot as a contemplative and morose take on the character. Costar Russell Crowe (who’s playing Jor-El) has been emphasizing the film’s scale and scope as something the previews cannot fully do justice. Meanwhile, his onscreen son Henry Cavill insists Snyder’s superhero flick is less dark and more action-packed than screenwriter David S. 4 years 41 weeks ago via jackiechan

feedproxy.google.com – With Before Sunrise and Before Sunset, director Richard Linklater and stars Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy created two amazing films about love, romance, relationships and fate. Films that were exceedingly simple visually, but incredibly powerful and complex in character, dialogue and performance. The first began the tale of an American named Jesse (Hawke) and a French woman named Celine (Delpy) who met on a train and fell in love while spending a day together in Vienna. 4 years 47 weeks ago via donnieyen

Early 'Skyfall' Reactions: How Does It Figure Into the James Bond Tradition?

feedproxy.google.com – Last night a bunch of critics in the UK were treated to an early screening of Skyfall, and while nobody invited any of our diehard 007 junkies, I figured it’s worth our while to take a look at the first reactions to the new James Bond blockbuster. To do so, I’m using the recent breakdown of elements by one of FSR’s resident Bond experts, Kevin Carr, in order to dissect the reviews and highlight their takes on each individual ingredient.

Is 'Cloud Atlas' The Greatest Film of the Year? Or the Biggest Failure? The Debate Begins!

feedproxy.google.com – All evening I was prepared for the snarkily apathetic responses to a certain film holding its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival Saturday night. Sadly, there was no Tweet expressing, “Cloud Atlas … shrug.” But there were indeed some claims of “meh” and “okay,” though perhaps not as many as there were declaring the ambitious effort either a monumental masterpiece or an epic failure. 5 years 14 weeks ago via donnieyen

To The Wonder
darkhorizons.com – "Tree of Life" and "The New World" helmer Terrence Malick has always been a divisive filmmaker, and his latest feature is continuing that trend.

Telluride Review: Ben Affleck's 'Argo' Is True Hostage Thriller, Hollywood Parody, and Likely Oscar Contender

feedproxy.google.com – Whoever thought the Telluride Film Festival wasn't on the Oscar track this year didn't figure on Ben Affleck's third film as a director, "Argo" (October 12). The buzz was building on this taut and commercial thriller, which Affleck directs with screw-tightening efficiency that would make Michael Mann proud. Multiple Oscar nominations are in order as this movie surges to the top of the current Oscar contenders list.
