Film Stars Narrate Mark Cousins’ ‘Women Make Film’ 14-Hour Documentary Epic — Exclusive
With his epic fourteen-hour documentary “Women Make Film: A New Road Movie Through Cinema,” writer/director Mark Cousins doesn’t skimp in his continuing pursuit to celebrate female filmmakers. Set to finally screen at its full-length (in five parts) next month at the Toronto International Film Festival, the movie is narrated by an eclectic list of voices.

UK actresses Adjoa Andoh and Thandie Newton, New Zealander Kerry Fox, India icon Sharmila Tagore, and Hollywood star Debra Winger all join previously announced narrators Jane Fonda and Tilda Swinton, who is an executive producer. Swinton narrates the first four hours of the film, which debuted at Venice 2018.

“We have 11 decades of women making films,” Swinton told IndieWire. “Another slight tweak of the goalpost is talking about women filmmakers. Women have made films since Mary Pickford onwards in incredible numbers. We know who made Hitchcock’s films with him (Alma Reville), but we don’t focus on it.

Harris Dickinson, Charlie Heaton & Joe Alwyn Cast In Joanna Hogg’s Upcoming ‘Souvenir’ Sequel [Exclusive]

Based on her own recollections as a shy film student growing up in the 1980s of Margaret Thatcher’s U.K., Joanna Hogg’s coming-of-age drama “The Souvenir” starring Honor Swinton Byrne and her mother Tilda Swinton, quickly became one of our favorite films of 2019 so far, when it was released earlier this year. The filmmaker’s stunning and intimate drama lived up to the immense buzz coming out of Sundance and struck a chord with all cineastes.

Tiff Will Screen a 14-Hour Documentary on Women Directors That Will ‘Rewrite Film History’

Tiff Will Screen a 14-Hour Documentary on Women Directors That Will ‘Rewrite Film History’
Last fall, documentary essayist Mark Cousins unveiled an ambitious new project: “Women Make Film: A New Road Movie Through Film,” which presents an alternative approach to film history exclusively through movies directed by women. The four hours presented at Tiff 2018 boasted a Tilda Swinton voiceover and the searing assertion that “film history is sexist.”

Now, Cousins has completed the project, and Tiff is giving it a lot of space: The entire 14 hours of “Women Make Film” will screen at the festival in five separate installments. “I think that the film is going to rewrite film history and how we understand the role of women directors,” Tiff Docs programmer Thom Powers said.

The previous installments screened quietly at the festival because “Mark was low key about it as he finished it,” Powers said. He wasn’t concerned about how moviegoers would make time for the finished product in the midst of a hectic festival schedule.

2020 Oscar Predictions: Best Supporting Actress (Updated: August 7)

2020 Oscar Predictions: Best Supporting Actress (Updated: August 7)
While the Best Supporting Actress Oscar is often awarded to an ingenue, it can also be a way to reward a more season performer who has been overlooked by the academy in the past. Indeed, that is just what happened at the 2019 Academy Awards when Regina King took home this Oscar for her scene-stealing performance in “If Beale Street Could Talk.” (Scroll down for the most up-to-date 2020 Oscars predictions for Best Supporting Actress.)

While King was clearly a featured player in her picture, two of her rival nominees, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz, could easily have submitted themselves in lead for their roles in “The Favourite.” But the studio decided to campaign only their co-star, Olivia Colman, for Best Actress and this proved to be a winning strategy. Stone and Weisz were both Oscar winners already with the former prevailing in lead for “La La Land” in 2017 and the latter

2020 Oscar Predictions: Best Actress (Updated: August 7)

2020 Oscar Predictions: Best Actress (Updated: August 7)
Historically the Best Actress Oscar has usually been awarded to an ingenue while the Best Actor prize is typically taken by a veteran. But these age biases could be changing. While a whopping 32 of the 92 Best Actress champs at the have been in their 20s when they picked up their Oscars, the last two women to win were 60-year-old Frances McDormand and 45-year-old Olivia Colman (“The Favourite”). And Colman’s closest rival was Glenn Close (“The Wife”), who was hoping for her first win at age 71. (Scroll down for the most up-to-date 2020 Oscars predictions for Best Actress.)

Fifteen of the 92 Best Actress winners, including Colman, were in their 40s when they took to the stage while 34 were thirtysomething. Julianne Moore was 54 when she finally won after four losses for “Still Alice” in 2015. The only other Best Actress winner in her 50s was theater veteran Shirley Booth who won for reprising

New to Streaming: ‘The Souvenir,’ ‘Non-Fiction,’ ‘Share,’ and More

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options–not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves–each week we highlight the noteworthy titles that have recently hit platforms. Check out this week’s selections below and an archive of past round-ups here.

Goodbye First Love (Mia Hansen-Løve)

One of the best coming-of-age films of the decade, what begins as a fairly standard, but intimately captured story of young passion quickly blossoms to one of the most mature takes on such an event thanks to Mia Hansen-Løve’s remarkably natural style and a script that’s conscious of time and its effects on love. Praise must also go to Lola Creton and Sebastian Urzendowsky for seemingly organic chemistry from such material. – Jordan R.

‘The Dead Don’t Die’ Review – Second Opinion

  • Nerdly
Stars: Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, Chloë Sevigny, Danny Glover, Caleb Landry Jones, Selena Gomez, Austin Butler, Luka Sabbat, Rosie Perez, Eszter Balint, Iggy Pop, Sara Driver, RZA, Carol Kane, Larry Fessenden, Tom Waits | Written and Directed by Jim Jarmusch

The Dead Don’t Die is the latest feature from director Jim Jarmusch and stars a gigantic cast list of Adam Driver, Bill Murray, Selena Gomez, Tilda Swinton and RZA, to name just a few. The film follows three police officers of Chief Cliff Robertson (Murray), Officer Ronnie Peterson (Driver) and Officer Mindy Morrison (Chloë Sevigny) in the peaceful middle American town of Centerville, of which finds itself and the characters battling an onslaught of a Zombie invasion.

Jim Jarmusch’s The Dead Don’t Die, on a very surface level approach, is equivalent to that of Edgar Wright’s Shaun of the Dead. A sweeping comedic venture into the genre of horror.

Luca Guadagnino in Talks to Direct ‘Lord of the Flies’ for Warner Bros.

Luca Guadagnino in Talks to Direct ‘Lord of the Flies’ for Warner Bros.
Oscar-nominated “Call Me By Your Name” and “Suspiria” director Luca Guadagnino is in negotiations to direct a new adaptation of William Golding’s classic coming-of-age novel for Warner Bros. According to Variety, Warners has been trying to mount the project since reacquiring the rights in 2017.

There have previously been talks of a gender-bent production, swapping in a group of school girls for the boys in the novel who, marooned on a desert island, unravel into savagery and madness. According to other sources, the screenplay will come from Nicole Perlman and Geneva Robertson-Dworet — scribes behind such recent action tentpoles including “Captain Marvel,” “Guardians of the Galaxy,” and “Tomb Raider.”

Lord of the Flies” would mark the biggest scope, and presumably budget, yet for the Italian auteur who currently already has a busy slate on his hands. He’s in pre-production on the HBO miniseries “We Are What We Are,” which centers

Luca Guadagnino Circles Warner Bros’ ‘Lord Of The Flies’ Adaptation

Luca Guadagnino Circles Warner Bros’ ‘Lord Of The Flies’ Adaptation
Suspiria and Call Me By Your Name director Luca Guadagnino is reportedly in talks to direct Warner Bros’ latest take on William Golding’s novel Lord of the Flies, a project the studio has been trying to mount for the past two years.

There have been a couple of versions of Lord of the Flies prior: Peter Brook’s 1963 movie and Harry Hook’s 1990 film, the latter of which was rated R and grossed just under $14 million at the domestic box office.

The book follows a group of schoolboys stranded on an island. They divide into two groups and square off against each other, giving way to savagery despite their best attempts for cooler, more rational heads to prevail. Guadagnino’s version will reportedly stick to that take with a contemporary spin; no writers are attached to the project.

Guadagnino’s Call Me By Your Name was nominated for four Oscars,

The original novel follows a group of school boys stranded on a deserted island who descend into a savage social order. When the studio reacquired all the rights in 2017, there was an idea of making it a group of school girls

What are the Box Office Expectations for Marvel’s Phase Four?

Tom Jolliffe looks at Marvel’s Phase Four, and what the box office expectations might be…

In the wake of the announcement of Marvel’s next phase of superhero movies, and off the back of a run of billion dollar home runs (including the two gargantuan grosses of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame) what can the studio realistically expect from Phase Four?

If we look at the output from Marvel in comparison to the popularity of the individual properties, at my best non-comic book affiliated guess (and correct me if wrong) but Marvel’s biggest comic icons are Spider-Man, Iron Man, Cap, the X-Men (due to be McU’d before long), Hulk and I suppose just on the edge of that group, Thor. Then there’s a tier below – the Fantastic Four, Black Panther and the Guardians, who’ve all been covered (where they’ve had ownership). So when we look at Phase Four,

Comic-Con 2019: What We Do In The Shadows Panel Highlights

One of my favorite new genre shows to come out in the last few years has been What We Do in the Shadows, as I’ve now fallen in love with this new group of vampire compatriots living amongst us mortals on Staten Island. Being such a huge fan of the series, I wasn’t about to miss the What We Do in the Shadows panel at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con last weekend, which was moderated by Evan Rachel Wood, who also has some experience playing a bloodsucker on TV.

For the panel, attendees first watched the fan favorite episode “The Trial,” and then Wood was joined onstage by Wwdits masterminds Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement, as well as executive producer Paul Sims, co-executive producer/writer Stefani Robinson, visual effects supervisor Brendan Taylor as well as series cast members Kayvan Novak, Matt Berry, Natasia Demetriou, Mark Proksch, and Harvey Guillen.

George Miller Updates Status Of Multiple ‘Fury Road’ Sequels & Is “Cautiously Optimistic” His Tilda Swinton/Idris Elba Film Will Happen
George Miller might be 74-years-old, but he very well might be more popular now than ever before.

And so, even though by this age, many folks are retiring and relaxing, Miller is busier than ever before, with multiple ‘Mad Max’ projects in the works, as well as a film with Tilda Swinton attached.
