Sacha Gervasi (‘My Dinner with Herve’ writer-director) on the ‘real story’ that inspired his Herve Villechaize film [Exclusive Video Interview]

Sacha Gervasi (‘My Dinner with Herve’ writer-director) on the ‘real story’ that inspired his Herve Villechaize film [Exclusive Video Interview]
“My Dinner with Herve” “originated from a real story,” reveals Sacha Gervasi. In the summer of 1993 the young journalist was sent to Los Angeles to write “a whole host of very important celebrity interviews, the least important of which was an interview with a now-faded French actor called Herve Villechaize.” But the inconsequential chat turned into a five-day discourse during which the star poured his heart out, only to die by suicide shortly thereafter. Twenty-five years later Gervasi wrote and directed the Emmy-nominated film starring Peter Dinklage as Villechaize and Jamie Dornan as a character based on Gervasi. Watch our exclusive video interview with the filmmaker above.

After shooting to fame as the diminutive sidekick on “Fantasy Island,” Villechaize was fired by producer Aaron Spelling over a salary dispute and quickly faded into obscurity.

10 Movies To Watch If You're A Mel Brooks Fan

Few people have had an impact on comedy even half as big as Mel Brooks. The man's quick wit and fearlessness in irreverently tackling serious subject matters proved to future generations that anything is funny if one looks at it in the right way. On paper, a comedy featuring a song called "Springtime For Hitler" sounds like a recipe for trouble. But not only did The Producers please audiences, it also earned Brooks an Academy Award for best original screenplay, beating out Arthur C. Clarke and Stanley Kubrick for 2001: A Space Odyssey.

After that debut film and his sophomore effort, The Twelve Chairs, his output mostly turned to genre parodies. Blazing Saddles lambasted westerns, High Anxiety did Hitchcock, Spaceballs poked fun at Star Wars, and the list goes on and on.

If one is looking for something else to watch after viewing his filmography, we're here to help. The

Review: "The Man Who Haunted Himself" (1970) Starring Roger Moore; Kino Lorber Blu-ray Special Edition

  • CinemaRetro
By Hank Reineke

Basil Dearden’s intriguing The Man Who Haunted Himself is a feature-length remake of a thirty-minute televised episode of Alfred Hitchcock’s Presents. That episode - from the 1955 program’s first season - had the distinction of having been directed by the maestro of suspense himself. It was one of only a handful of dramas in the series that Hitchcock chose to helm. The episode was based on Anthony Armstrong’s short story (later novelized) “The Strange Case of Mr. Pelham” (Methuen & Co. Ltd., UK, 1957). The book was later published that very same year in the U.S. as part of Doubleday & Co.’s fabled “Crime Club” series.

Armstrong’s psychological thriller had been originally published in the November 1940 issue of Esquire magazine. The short story was later re-sold and re-published in June 1955 as part of Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine… which is likely where Hitchcock became acquainted with it.

Us First Reactions: Jordan Peele Has Made Another Horror Masterpiece
Jordan Peele's Us screened for the first time yesterday evening at the annual SXSW film festival and the first reactions are in. Many have been wondering how Peele was going to follow up 2017's Academy Award winning Get Out and how it was going to stack up. According to the early reactions, you can't really compare the two, which definitely sounds like a good thing. When talking about the movie before its release, Peele revealed that he wanted to make more of a straight up horror movie this time around. From the sounds of things, he did that and even more.

‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Boss on Hitchcock and Scully’s ‘Flat Top and The Freak’ Origin Story

  • The Wrap
‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Boss on Hitchcock and Scully’s ‘Flat Top and The Freak’ Origin Story
(Warning: This post contains spoilers for Thursday’s episode of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” titled “Hitchcock & Scully”)

While the first episode of Season 6 of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” was devoted to Jake and Amy (and weirdly also Holt), the second gives the show’s other fan-favorite couple its full attention. Yes, we’re talking about Hitchcock (Dirk Blocker) and Scully (Joel McKinnon Miller), whose backstory is finally addressed on Thursday’s episode, aptly titled, “Hitchcock & Scully.”

The installment centers around Jake (Andy Samberg) and Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio) trying to get to the bottom of what really happened when some money went missing on a drug case the now-bumbling Hitchcock and Scully worked back in 1986, for which they are currently under investigation by NYPD Internal Affairs.

The Prize

Already eclipsed by James Bond and sexier European films, Paul Newman does his best to energize this derivative but lively spy-chase thriller set during Nobel season, in a Stockholm populated by the glamorous Elke Sommer, Diane Baker, Micheline Presle and Jacqueline Beer. Toss several Hitchcock pictures into a blender, and what comes out is reasonably engaging… and more than a little dated.

‘Green Book’: Will Word of Mouth Save the Wobbly Oscar Contender?
Two high-level openings with Oscar hopes, Peter Farrelly’s “Green Book” (Universal) and Julian Schnabel’s “At Eternity’s Gate” (CBS), dominate the new releases entering the crowded and volatile specialized award season marketplace. “Green Book” is struggling to pull audiences with a multi-city opening at top theaters. The true 60s story starring Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali will need a dramatic word-of-mouth boost it before its planned quick expansion. Schnabel’s Vincent Van Gogh biopic launched well with its iconic subject promising strong positive specialized response ahead.

Boy Erased” (Focus) led the new expansions –among the best of wider releases this fall. The market has suddenly become very competitive, with a number of films struggling and risking not getting full holiday bookings as the lucrative Thanksgiving weekend approaches.

Morbido 2018 Review: QUIÉN Te CANTARÁ, Music, Mirrors, and Memory

Spanish writer/director Carlos Vermut has an unusual imagination. In his first feature film, Diamond Flash, a fantastical drama, five women circled each other with dangerous secrets and kidnappings; in his second, Magical Girl, neo-noir mixes with black comedy as a man in desperate need of money, tries to bribe a rich yet mentally unstable woman with ties to a strange Bdsm community. In his third feature, Quién Te Cantará (which translates as ‘who will sing to you’), Vermut combines Hitchcock-style mystery with Bergman-esque crisis of identity. Lila (Najwa Nimri), a famous pop star, is about to embark on her first tour in years. On the eve of it, however, Lila has an accident, and when she wakes up in hospital, she can't remember who she was,...

Helen Mirren movies: 12 greatest films ranked from worst to best
It’s not uncommon for a prominent British actor to be labeled British acting royalty. All types, from Laurence Olivier to Maggie Smith, have worn the label but nobody perhaps has literally worn that title recently to the extent as Helen Mirren. She has had a long varied career and has earned her place as one of the holders of acting’s triple crowns by playing a variety of British monarchs.

Her Oscar came for playing the British Queen Elizabeth II in “The Queen,” which dealt with her reaction to the unexpected death of Princess Diana. She would revisit the role nine years later for a Tony on Broadway in the play “The Audience,” which dealt with Elizabeth’s relationships with the various prime ministers who have served under her. It was a different Queen, Elizabeth I, that would bring Mirren one of her four Emmys, when she starred in

The Forgotten: Intimate Strangers

  • MUBI
The writing team of Boileau and Narcejac penned the source novels for Les Diaboliques and Vertigo, and also collaborated with Franju on Eyes without a Face and Spotlight on a Murderer. Les Louves, a.k.a. Demoniac, is their second film, from 1957, an adaptation of their own novel. Unlike the Clouzot and Hitchcock films, it doesn't so much hinge upon a fantastic imposture unmasked towards the end, but it instead piles on secrets and intrigues until the viewer is both giddy and despondent.The setting is France during the Occupation, and the movie begins with Joseph Kosma's ominous score imitating the scream of a Pow camp siren. François Périer (from Cocteau's Orpheus) plays an escaped French soldier who takes his slain buddy's ID and finds himself impersonating the dead man in the house of his "war godmother" (Micheline Presle), a woman he had become engaged to by mail without the two ever meeting.
