‘Mission: Impossible 7’ Recruits Hayley Atwell to Join Tom Cruise

Hayley Atwell, who played Peggy Carter in the Captain America movies, is set to join Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible 7, it was more or less announced Friday evening by writer-director Christopher McQuarrie. McQuarrie posted a photo of Atwell's headshot resting on top of an Impossible Missions Force binder, with the caption "Should you choose to accept..." Atwell didn't wait long before responding "Mission: Accepted. Though I’m not the sort to follow orders..." Atwell certainly fits the mold of the Mission franchise's leading ladies, who are rarely American, from Emmanuelle Béart to Thandie Newton

Film Review: ‘Sibel’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Sibel’
Three years ago, Deniz Gamze Ergüven’s handsomely made yet exoticizing “Mustang” reinforced a Western idea of rural Turkish life and was received with general acclaim away from home, proving that a filmmaker’s local origins don’t exclude an internalized brand of orientalism. That’s even truer with “Sibel,” Çagla Zencirci and Guillaume Giovanetti’s third feature, the first one shot in Zencirci’s country of birth. Weaving together folklore, gender roles and a fitful kind of emancipation in the story of a mute young woman desperate to counter the ostracism of her fellow villagers, the writer-director couple have created an attractive package that doesn’t hold up to close inspection. Even so, thanks to the extensive use of an intriguing whistle language, and given the way it buttresses Western narrative notions of Asia Minor, the film has a good chance of garnering international art-house attention.

‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ Finally Solves the Franchise’s Leading-Lady Problem

‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ Finally Solves the Franchise’s Leading-Lady Problem
Girl Talk is a weekly look at women in film — past, present, and future.

Editor’s note: This post contains some spoilers for “Mission: Impossible – Fallout.”

It’s a primary principle for any spy, even the ones in movies: Never get too close to anyone, lest they be used against you. For the first two films in the “Mission: Impossible” movie franchise, Imf agent Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) didn’t seem to have much trouble abiding by that concept. The super spy had compatriots (like long-time co-star Ving Rhames) and vague love interests, and his care for them often blindsided him (remember when Béart’s Claire Phelps double-crossed him?), but he was a trained professional who moved on once the bullets stopped flying.

The first two films in the series neatly wrapped up their primary storylines and missions, allowing Ethan to start fresh with the next one. That changed in “Mission: Impossible III,

La belle noiseuse

The late Jacques Rivette knocks us silly with a breathtaking meditation on what it means to be an artist, and what art demands of those that believe in it. A woman roped into posing nude for a famed but insecure painter, undergoes several intense days of compliant collaboration. Rivette’s unforced style gives the impression of life as it is being lived; his commitment is matched by that of actors Michel Piccoli, Jane Birkin and Emmanuelle Béart.

Friday, March 23rd at 7:00pm – Le Samourai

In a career-defining performance, Alain Delon plays Jef Costello, a contract killer with samurai instincts. After carrying out a flawlessly planned hit, Jef finds himself caught between a persistent police investigator and a ruthless employer, and not even his armor of fedora and trenchcoat can protect him. An elegantly stylized masterpiece of cool by maverick director Jean‑Pierre Melville, “Le samouraï” is a razor-sharp cocktail of 1940s American

Review: Lost and Found—Raúl Ruiz's "Time Regained"

  • MUBI
Raúl Ruiz frequently remarked that he was the perfect person to adapt Marcel Proust’s vast set of novels Remembrance of Things Past (or, more literally, In Search of Lost Time) to the screen because, having reached the end of reading the entire work, he instantly forgot it all. He was joking, of course, but his jest disguised a serious method. The only way to convey Proust on screen, in Ruiz’s opinion, was to approach it not as a literal condensation of multiple characters and events, but as a psychic swirl of half-remembered, half-forgotten fragments and impressions—full of uncanny superimpositions and metamorphoses. “‘The best way to adapt something for film,” he summed up, “is to dream it.” Ruiz’s dreaming was always accompanied by extensive, meandering, seemingly eccentric research. In the case of Time Regained, he plunged (as he revealed in a splendid, lengthy interview with Jacinto Lageira

‘La Belle Noiseuse’ Trailer: Jacques Rivette’s Classic Returns For 25th Anniversary In 4K Restoration [Exclusive]

3 Classic Films by Claude Chabrol

Being called the French Hitchcock does Claude Chabrol a disservice, as his dark thrillers approach mystery and suspense almost completely through character, not cinematics. These three very good 1990s productions are completely different in tone and approach, and each showcases a stunning French actress.

41 trailer scenes that didn’t make the final film

Rob Leane Feb 10, 2017

Star Wars, Terminator 2, Fantastic Beasts and more: they all have scenes in the trailer, that never made the final film...

More often than you might think, scenes that appear in movie trailer don’t turn up in the finished film. This can leave trailer-loving audience members confused as the credits roll, wondering if they dropped off and missed something important.

A couple of massive movies have done this recently, and the internet has been quick to fill in the blanks with speculation. Fingers have been pointed at tinkering studio bigwigs and extensive reshoots, when the reality is often a little less dramatic: filmmakers always chop some footage in the edit, and they rarely have much involvement in the trailers.

Sociopsychological Drama with Central Gay Character, French Film Icon Top Nsfc Choices

2016 movies Things to Come (pictured) and Elle have earned French cinema icon Isabelle Huppert her – surprisingly – first National Society of Film Critics Best Actress Award. 2016 Movies: Isabelle Huppert & 'Moonlight' among National Society of Film Critics' top picks Earlier today (Jan. 7), the National Society of Film Critics announced their top 2016 movies and performances. Somewhat surprisingly, this year's Nsfc list – which generally contains more offbeat entries than those of other U.S.-based critics groups – is quite similar to their counterparts', most of which came out last December. No, that doesn't mean the National Society of Film Critics has opted for the crowd-pleasing route. Instead, this awards season U.S. critics have not infrequently gone for even less mainstream entries than usual. Examples, among either the Nsfc winners or runners-up, include Isabelle Huppert in Elle, Moonlight, Toni Erdmann, Casey Affleck in Manchester by the Sea, and Lily Gladstone in Certain Women. French

Half Century Halle (and other anniversaries)

1040 King Duncan is killed in battle and King Macbeth succeeds him. Shakespeare fictionalizes everything later for Macbeth. So many theatrical productions and movies follow. Out damn spot!

1932 The 1932 Summer Olympics end. This is the Olympic year when gorgeous Buster Crabbe became a gold medalist (pictured left). Hollywood then snatched him right up for movie serials and action adventure franchises including Tarzan The Fearless

1945 Japan surrenders during Ww II (the six year war will last only two more weeks.) but movie makers all over the world have never stopped telling the war's infinite stories.

Lesbian Lives Matter in Summertime

Quite early on in Catherine Corsini's embraceable French import Summertime, a group of young Parisian women run through the streets, laughing aloud while pinching male asses. Viva, Simone de Beauvoir! The buttocks-ravished men are both startled and outraged. How dare they be made into sexual objects. One gent even starts attacking a lass, but to her rescue comes farm-girl/tractor-driver/physically strapping Delphine (Izïa Higelin).

Please note the year is 1971 and feminism is a-brewing, pleasantly knocking the closeted, recent rural-escapee for a loop. Suddenly, she's not in a field with gaseous bovines but in a bus encircled by attractive, long-haired, rowdy, activist Amazons, who care not a whit whether one is into scissoring or the missionary position. All sex is good. All male subordination of the "fairer" gender is bad. They even sing, "Arise, enslaved woman."

Suddenly, our enthralled heroine is attending political conscious-raising groups, helping to cause havoc at anti-abortion lectures,

Death of a French maverick by Richard Mowe

Jacques Rivette: Nouvelle Vague director with a reputation for lengthy films Photo: Unifrance

A French film director who was an integral part of the French New Wave (or Nouvelle Vague), has died in Paris at the age of 87.

Jacques Rivette’s celebrated films include Paris Belongs To Us, Celine And Julie Go Boating in 1974 and the four-hour La Belle Noiseuse with Emmanuelle Béart, Michel Piccoli and Jane Birkin in 1991 (dealing with an elderly artist and his creative rebirth). He worked alongside the likes of François Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard and Claude Chabrol in whose apartment he shot his first short film Le Coup de Berger. He was also a writer with Cahiers du Cinema magazine and assumed the editor’s chair from 1963 to 1965.

He borrowed money from the magazine to fund his first feature, Paris Belongs To Us, which was released in 1961. Its plot revolved around a group of actors

Lynch / Rivette. Locomotion, or: Dreams Are Orders I Obey: “Inland Empire” and “The Story of Marie and Julien”

  • MUBI
This article accompanies the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s dual retrospective of the films of Jacques Rivette and David Lynch and is part of an ongoing review of Rivette’s films for the Notebook, in light of several major re-releases of his work.Two masterpieces, made three years apart, evincing the power of the close-up in unexpected ways. Rivette, with an uncharacteristically tender emphasis, shows a tear roll down Marie’s cheek and drop onto her wrist at the end of The Story of Marie and Julien. In a movie otherwise consisting of unemphatic, shifting wide shots and the occasional functional insert shot, Rivette glides in gently to frame her face in pensive close-up—his first since Wuthering Heights?—as her expression becomes the unexpected crux of the scene. The tear, running through the bloodless canal dug into her wrist, silently resurrects her, gets her blood literally flowing again,

Godard, Desplechin sign Calais migrants petition

Godard, Desplechin sign Calais migrants petition
27,000 people sign petition spearheaded by French filmmakers in four days.

A petition initiated by French filmmakers last week calling on the French government to do more to help the inhabitants of the Calais “jungle” in northern France is gathering momentum, with Jean-Luc Godard and Arnaud Desplechin among the signatories.

The population of the squalid camps around the port of Calais has swollen to 6,000 people over the past month, due to the rising numbers of migrants arriving in Europe, as well as tighter security measures around the port and Channel Tunnel.

French filmmakers Nicolas Philibert, Ariane Doublet, Catherine Corsini and Christophe Ruggia spearheaded the petition initiative after visiting the camps last week, kicking it off on Wednesday (Oct 21) with the support of some 800 French artists.

More than 28,000 people had signed the petition by Sunday evening (Oct 25). The objective is to garner at least 35,000 signatures.

Philibert, Doublet, Corsinin and Ruggia said they had been shocked by the “appalling living

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation review – functional old-school action thriller

Tom Cruise’s unlikely survival as a traditional action hero continues with this spy-thriller franchise’s fifth instalment, which makes no significant attempts to update the formula

The increasingly stately Tom Cruise/Mission: Impossible action-adventure franchise is now almost 20 years old. It has employed as directors Brian De Palma, John Woo, Jj Abrams, Brad Bird and now Christopher McQuarrie – and got through female leads including Emmanuelle Béart, Thandie Newton and Michelle Monaghan. During its existence, the competing Bourne franchise with Matt Damon has come and gone. But M:i just continues, and so does its star Tom Cruise – now 53 years old, but buff of bod and tight of ab and looking hardly older now than when he started in the series, which gave him a turbocharged boost as an A-list star in an era when such creatures were thought to be becoming extinct. Now he’s even developing Jack Reacher on the side as well.
