RELATED: People V. O.J. Simpson Shocks Audiences with This Very Bad Swear Word "He must be posted up at the payphone in jail right now. It's like everybody keeps giving a quote that he said. He hasn't seen the show, but 'Cuba's portrayal I feel indifferent about'?" In that statement, Cuba Gooding Jr. is referencing a direct quote he heard from O.J. The actor was less than thrilled with this particular assessment from the former pro-athlete. He went on to ponder what exactly Simpson is trying to say about the FX drama, and doesn't believe that he hasn't seen the show yet. … [Read more...] about What Does Cuba Gooding Jr. Think of O.J.

Director Lee has made very few embellishments, and all of them have a point. There's eloquent simplicity in a brief projection on the curtain of Colin Kaepernick taking a knee as Byrne in "I Should Watch TV" asks "How am I not your brother? How are you not like me?" The most powerful addition comes in the company's rousing take on the Janelle Monae protest anthem "Hell You Talmbout." Photographs now accompany the call-and-response chant of "Say his name," showing each of the African Americans killed in racial and/or police violence stretching from Eric Garner back to Emmett Till. The faces of three victims who have died since, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, bring the song to an emotionally wrenching close. … [Read more...] about David Byrne’s ‘American Utopia’: Film Review | TIFF 2020
Added Burrows: “At the moment we’ve got new film and TV production incentives that add up to 30% of qualifying Australian expenditure. We’ve got a very competitive exchange rate now. We’ve got very, very low COVID-19 cases in New South Wales. We’ve also got very film-friendly regulations, and we have world-class infrastructure, studios and talent. We’ve got more talent home now than we’ve ever had, obviously, because COVID has been so terrible in a number of territories, including the U.S.” … [Read more...] about Australia’s Jungle Entertainment Eyes ‘Bad Mothers’ & ‘Squinters’ Adaptations Amid U.S. Expansion & Looks To Produce American Series Down Under
There are ways in which I somewhat prefer Zhao’s two previous films, mainly because they center on people whose Western lifestyles remain connected to those of many previous generations of Americans—cowboys, oil drillers, ranchers and farmers, homesteaders, anyone who works with animals—but now have been bypassed by technology and utterly changed times. The homeless, rootless people on view in Nomadland summon up memories of the itinerants and vagabonds of the Great Depression years, but at least two factors are different: Many of the modern-era vagabonds possess vehicles, even if they have no money, and the dominant personalities tend to be women, although that impression could simply stem from Zhao having decided to focus more upon them (the only other name actor here, David Strathairn, plays a taciturn guy clearly interested in Fern but who gets nowhere). … [Read more...] about Film Review: Chloé Zhao’s ‘Nomadland’ Starring Frances McDormand
Hopper, too, is straddling a fine line, playing a version of himself but also revealing himself and his vulnerabilities. The chance to act in his own films, he says, is "such a relief, not to have somebody screaming at you." Maybe eager to disprove Welles' contention that he'd make a good movie Jesus, or maybe feeling the gin-and-tonics, Hopper holds little back when expressing his feelings about the Fonda family, including his view of Jane Fonda as a political dilettante. On the lighter side, only one of his jokes doesn't land, a weak stab at the idea of "pretty ladies" being his true interest as a filmmaker. The awkward moment takes on a different resonance when you know that Hopper's eight-day marriage to Michelle Phillips ended just days before the Beverly Hills shoot. … [Read more...] about ‘Hopper/Welles’: Film Review | Venice 2020
