‘Berlin, I Love You’ Trailer: Keira Knightley, Helen Mirren Star in Fourth ‘Cities’ Anthology Film

Following the footsteps of Paris, je t’aime in 2006, New York, I Love You in 2008, and Rio, Eu Te Amo in 2014, comes Berlin, I Love You, the fourth official entry in the “Cities of Love” anthology film series. And in this Hollywood vision of the German city, it turns out there are precious few German people but plenty of British and American expats, played by stars like Keira Knightley, Helen Mirren, Luke Wilson, and Mickey Rourke. Berlin I Love You Trailer Keira Knightley is finally ou...

‘Five Feet Apart’ Trailer: It’s ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ But with Cystic Fibrosis

If The Fault in Our Stars warmed your heart and also made you stream crocodile tears, then you’re probably already looking forward to Five Feet Apart. Not unlike the aforementioned adaptation of John Green’s book, this movie follows a 17-year old girl named Stella (Haley Lu Richardson of Split) who is afflicted with cystic fibrosis, keeping her confined to a hospital and unable to make human contact. That becomes all the more challening when she meets a fellow cystic fibrosis patient named Will...

Wild Women, Forty Pricks, and Western Noir

None Film critic Manny Farber, in typical inimitable style, summarized much of Samuel Fuller's film oeuvre through simultaneous praise and critique in the following observation: "What's good about his films is lovable; the daring, uninhibited use of semidocumentary techniques that save the movie from Fuller's mind, an unthinking morass at best" (Negative Space: Manny Farber on the Movies (New York: De Capo Press, 1998, 132). Put slightly more generously, Fuller's film style often trumps the plo...

Pawel Pawlikowski's 'Cold War' Is a Lustrous, Slyly Subversive Melodrama

None There's a true love guiding Cold War, Pawel Pawlikowski's first film since 2015's Oscar-winning Ida. The truth isn't in the depth of the emotion, though, but in its blemished sincerity; it's a story about two lovers who stay involved, but not necessarily together, for 15 years, and who never truly convince each other (or us, as viewers) that love itself is enough. The film, set in 1950s Europe, is extravagant but unsentimental, and never strays far from the stark realities of wartime. Tha...

‘I Want To Eat Your Pancreas’ Trailer: An Anime Romance That Will Shed Tears, Not Blood

Wagaya no Liliana-san PV Fueled With Sexual Desire

Wagaya no Liliana-san’s impending ero-anime may potentially allure with its titular “tan” maiden, offering another vanilla romance that will likely only disappoint those in desperate need of more niche fetishes (possibly forgiven with the inclusion of bunny girl and maid attire). The romantic PV: Omake: Wagaya no Liliana-san’s saucy sex scenes can be witnessed January […]

Saoirse Ronan Reunites with Wes Anderson for ‘The French Dispatch,’ Teams Up With Kate Winslet for ‘Ammonite’

Promise Saoirse Ronan a corset, or at least a chance to wear a fancy hat, and you’ve got her booked for your next period drama. The Mary Queen of Scots actress is making a habit out of starring in prestigious historical dramas, but with casts and directors like these, you have to at least be vaguely interested. Four years after The Grand Budapest Hotel, Saoirse Ronan is reuniting with director Wes Anderson for his 10th feature film, The French Dispatch. But while she’ll be reuniting with a few ...

‘Your Name’ U.S. Remake Will Be “Through the Lens of a Western Viewpoint”

It’s the word that we all dread when we hear about a Hollywood remake of a wildly successful foreign-language property: “Americanized.” Often it comes with the territory of making an English-language remake of a foreign movie — after all you have to cater to your audience. But for Bad Robot, which is currently developing the U.S. Your Name remake with Arrival writer Eric Heisserer attached, it’s a tricky line to walk in lieu of a history of bad anime remakes and recent controversies around whit...

‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ Remake Still Happening, But New Line is More Focused on ‘Conjuring’ Franchise Now

The Nightmare on Elm Street franchise is currently sleeping, but you can expect New Line to wake it up sometime soon. The series, which helped save the once-floundering studio from financial ruin, will launch yet another remake…eventually. That’s what screenwriter David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick claims, at least. For now, though, New Line is more focused on their profitable Conjuring franchise. More on the inevitable new Nightmare on Elm Street remake below. In 2010, New Line Cinema teamed wi...

Review | Wicked and the Wallflower by Sarah MacLean

I looked forward to this book with barely restrained delight from the moment I heard the first faint whisperings of its existence. I read it as soon as I could get my hands on it, and then life got in the way (as it is wont to do), and I never quite got around to reviewing it. But I flatly refuse to let the year end without talking about this first book in Sarah MacLean's new series. Just in case you haven't, you know, read it yet. That way you'll have time to fit it in before the second boo...

‘To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before Sequel’ is Officially Official at Netflix

A To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before sequel is officially going steady at Netflix, with stars Lana Condor and Noah Centineo set to reprise their roles in the hit romantic-comedy. The sequel would adapt the second book in Jenny Han‘s best-selling trilogy, P.S.

'If Beale Street Could Talk' Is an Intimate Rendering of Black Love in the Face of Hatred

None The heart of If Beale Street Could Talk, Barry Jenkins' much-anticipated follow up to the Oscar-winning Moonlight, is apparent from its opening scene. Tish Rivers (KiKi Layne) and Fonny Hunt (Stephan James), a young black couple in love, hold hands as they stroll across a secluded New York City waterfront. Their colors of their clothes and skin — warm, sensuous yellows, oranges and browns — mimic the tender intensity of their blossoming love. The music swells and the camera focuses straigh...

Barry Jenkins' 'If Beal Street Could Talk' Is Unapologetically Romantic

None If Beale Street Could Talk, Barry Jenkins' eagerly anticipated follow-up to 2016's Oscar darling Moonlight, is a beautiful rumination on love and community set against a backdrop of institutionalized racism. Each character is delicately imbued with dignity and intelligence, as Jenkins chisels this world out of lingering close-ups and Nicholas Britell's magnificent score. Though it sputters with repetitive story beats towards its finalé, there's no denying the passion and urgency of Jenkins...
