Beauty vs Beast: The Bigger Boys

Jason from Mnpp here, ready to pop some peach champagne for the release of Luca Guadagnino's Call Me By Your Name, which finally hits theaters in New York and La on Friday. The thing is, although I personally have already seen the film six times (if you've been to Mnpp at any point in the past three months you're more than aware of my obsession but if you missed my first take on the movie out of Nyff it's one of the most meaningful pieces of writing I've ever done, says me), it seems that some of you have not seen the film six times yet. Since it's not in theaters yet, and all. So I probably can't devote this week's "Beauty vs Beast" to it then!

So we'll do the next best and look back at Luca's last movie, A Bigger Splash. When Abs came out we polled

Europe’s Oscar Films Span Spectrum From Serious to Comedies

Europe’s Oscar Films Span Spectrum From Serious to Comedies
“World cinema” may be the official remit of the foreign-language film category, but it’s fair to say Oscar has travelled some parts of the globe more thoroughly than others. However much the voting system is tweaked to expand the branch’s horizons, the award retains a reputation for Eurocentricity: in its 61 years of competitive existence, it has gone to a European production 51 times.

It’s not an inexplicable bias, of course, when you weigh up the number of developed national film industries among continents — after all, European countries account for well over a third of this year’s 92 foreign-language submissions, dwarfing the combined number of entries from Africa, for example. Either way, it’s a dominance that is likely to continue this year, with Europe holding a number of the most hotly fancied contenders in what remains a wide-open race.

Unsurprisingly, France holds the record for scoring the most nominations in the category’s history, with 37. It

Le Fidele (Racer And The Jailbird): Watch The Trailer For Mikael Roskam's Latest

Following the disappointing performance of The Drop, Bullhead director Mikael Roskam returns to his native Belgium for Le Fidele - titled internationally as Racer And The Jailbird - and awkward international title aside, this looks very much to be a return to form. Set against the background of a brutal crime gang in Brussels, a tragic love story between Gigi (Matthias Schoenaerts), a high-flying gangster, and Bibi (Adèle Exarchopoulos), a young racing driver with very upper-class roots. The French theatrical trailer for this one has just arrived and is looking very good, indeed.

“Ritesh Batra’s ‘Our Souls At Night’ starring Robert Redford and Jane Fonda is a masterpiece” – Subhash K Jha

Our Souls At Night

Starring Robert Redford and Jane Fonda

Directed by Ritesh Batra

It starts quietly, and ends without drama, melo- or otherwise. After The Lunchbox and its tad disappointing followup The Sense Of An Ending, you know how it is with Ritesh Batra. This is a filmmaker who loves silence and embraces it with all its inbuilt hazards and uncertainties.

We’ve seen him work wonders with wordless emotions in his earlier works. So no surprise if here he once again weaves a luminous lucidity into the looming stillness of a landscape that won’t judge mankind. Kindly or otherwise.

With Our Souls At Night, a deeply stirring gentle humane drama about two autumnal souls drifting together in ways that The Bridges Of Madison County could never fathom, Batra joins the ranks of the greatest living filmmakers. And we are not speaking of India alone. Batra is a

‘Our Souls at Night’ Review: Robert Redford and Jane Fonda Anchor a Gently Moving Love Story About Life After Death
Told with with the gentle touch of a partner taking your arm on an afternoon stroll, Ritesh Batra’s “Our Souls at Night” is a wise and wistful drama about life after death; regardless of how old you are, this is the kind of movie that your parents would like. It begins with the folksy twang of a guitar and shots of streetlights blinking awake as night falls on a small Colorado town. A widower named Louis Waters (Robert Redford) sits alone in the kitchen of a house that was clearly meant for two. This is the only sort of night that he has. At least, until it isn’t. There’s someone at the door — his neighbor, Addie Moore (Jane Fonda), also on her own — and she wants to know if Louis might be interested in sleeping with her. Literally sleeping with her. It’s not about sex, it

‘Racer And The Jailbird’ Trailer: Matthias Schoenaerts & Adèle Exarchopoulos Accelerate Their Passion

  • The Playlist
We don’t always have the same opinions here at The Playlist, and “Racer And The Jailbird” is one such case. Where Jessica was able to roll with the film’s “drunken romanticism,” when I caught the movie at Tiff I thought it was just plain drunk. The overly long, two-hour-plus film lurches from one unbelievable plot twist to the next, in a crime picture/love story that never knows when to slow down.
