The Real Twist is That It’s Easy to Love M. Night Shyamalan’s Movies

He’s responsible for at least one stone cold genre classic, though many would argue for more. He makes (almost) nothing but high-concept original stories, produced and financed in a blockbuster-obsessed landscape that’s increasingly indifferent to anything else. And finally, he happens to be one of the few brand-name filmmakers among general audiences who consistently puts butts in seats at a time when theater attendance, even pre-pandemic, has been flagging badly. This description, as you may ...

Wes Anderson’s Next Movie Adds Wes Anderson Regular Adrien Brody

Yo, Adrien. Wes Anderson casting news tends to have the feel of watching something along the lines of the MCU circa Phase One, with Nick Fury roaming around the Marvel universe and recruiting individual Avengers for the inevitable team-up down the line. This one is no different, as Deadline reports that Adrien Brody has apparently joined the cast for Anderson’s next upcoming feature. We know little in the way of actual details about this project, but we do know that it’s shaping up to be a t...

Cannes 2021 week two: heatstruck delirium and instant classics

Julia Ducournau’s bizarre Titane sent punters over the edge, while films such as Asghar Fahadi’s A Hero offered more subtle rewardsThe pandemic hits Cannes in the form of a movie that plays near the beach, buffeted by strong winds. On screen, the people are sickening by degrees. They’re coughing on commuter buses and sidestreets and in the musty, book-lined aisles down at the local library. They’re seeing mad visions of motherships in the sky. The madness is contagious; the city’s in meltdown. “...

Cannes 2021: who will win the Palme d’Or – and who should

As a very strange edition of the festival draws to a close, our film critic predicts who will walk away with the Palme d’Or and other prizes – and awards his own alternative BraddiesSo it actually happened – the Cannes film festival defiantly took place in the era of Covid, and two months later than usual, in sweltering July. More tourists, but fewer actual festival-attenders from the media. Some streets were eerily quiet and the legendary bar, Le Petit Majestic, usually packed with movie-world ...

Old-World French Summer: Hôtel La Ponche in Saint-Tropez

Where would we be staying if we attending this year’s Festival de Cannes? In our imaginations, its Hôtel La Ponche, brand-new, old-world lodgings in nearby Saint-Tropez on the French Riviera.

Now, after eight months of renovations, and with new interiors by th...

‘The French Dispatch’ Review: Wes Anderson’s Dizzyingly Intricate Homage to 20th-Century Newsmen and Women

Journalists are the heroes in “The French Dispatch,” so expect film critics to be a little bit biased in their embrace of Wes Anderson’s latest. It flatters the field, after all, just not in the way that Pulitzer-centric mega-scoop sagas “All the President’s Men” or “Spotlight” may have done before. Anderson is more of a […]

Some Amazing Shots from the Last Decade of Movies

ILM visual effects artist Todd Vaziri asked his Twitter followers to share their favorite shots from a movie made in the last decade. The replies are a visual feast (and heavy on blockbusters) — here are a few of my favorites. From top to bottom: Blade Runner 2049, Mad Max: Fury Road, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Widows, Arrival, and Thor: Ragnarok. There are probably several deserving scenes omitted from the thread (no Wes Anderson fans…the sushi scene from Isle of Dogs?), ...
