Ryan Murphy On New “Feminist Horror Story” ‘Ratched’; ‘Pose’ Signifies Real Industry Change For Lgbtq Stories
Ryan Murphy says his upcoming Netflix show Ratched, starring Sarah Paulson, will be a “gorgeous story” championing feminism. Speaking at GQ Live in Los Angeles on Saturday, the TV creator explained what had drawn him to the subject, how he was letting women lead the way with the story, and how he thinks the industry truly has changed with regard to Lgbtq stories like his Globe-nominated show Pose.

Based on the Ken Kesey novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, and centered around the terrifying character of asylum Nurse Ratched, Murphy described Ratched as a look into the mind of a sociopath. “She’s one of the great villains…she’s like a female Lecter,” he said, referring to that other sociopath in The Silence of the Lambs. “She’s a great, great villain, very misunderstood.”

He said his interest had been sparked while watching the 1975 Milos Forman-directed film starring Jack Nicholson.

Will ‘A Star Is Born’ be the 4th film to win Best Picture and lead acting Oscars?

Will ‘A Star Is Born’ be the 4th film to win Best Picture and lead acting Oscars?
Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga are aiming to be the eighth onscreen duo to win Best Actor and Best Actress Oscars. But they could join even more rarefied air if “A Star Is Born” also wins Best Picture, as only three films ever have swept those three categories.

All three films that have accomplished this just so happened to be the only three films to claim the Big Five awards as well: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress and a screenplay award. The first film to do so was “It Happened One Night” (1934), which picked up statuettes for leads Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert, director Frank Capra and screenwriter Robert Riskin.

It’d be 41 years before it occurred again, achieved by “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975), with victories for helmer Milos Forman, stars Jack Nicholson and Louise Fletcher, and screenwriters Laurence Hauben and Bo Goldman.

From ‘Last Tango’ to ‘Last Emperor,’ Bertolucci Was the First and Last of His Kind

From ‘Last Tango’ to ‘Last Emperor,’ Bertolucci Was the First and Last of His Kind
The year 2018 is shaping up to be a tragedy of epic proportions for lovers of world cinema. In April, Czech director Milos Forman passed away, and now, in late November, within a matter of days, we have lost avant garde maestro Nicolas Roeg and that great Italian iconoclast Bernardo Bertolucci.

Consider: Forman’s “Amadeus,” Roeg’s identity-shattering “Performance” (co-directed with Donald Cammell), and Bertolucci’s still unsurpassed exploration of moral ambiguity and personal compromise, “The Conformist.” The medium is inconceivable in its present form without these films, whose directors were hardly one-hit wonders, contributing masterpiece after masterpiece during the most fertile stretches of their careers. Though each had struggled to maintain his relevance in recent decades, any late-life disappointment seems inevitable when judged relative to the achievements that came before.

Of the three, Bertolucci was by far the most successful at sustaining his impact until the end, for his brand was controversy,

“Have you been here before?” David Byrne asks, his eyes widening as he sits in a conference room inside the Criterion Collection’s New York office. It’s like Willy Wonka’s factory for film buffs. Behind him are posters for classic films like Milos Forman’s Black Peter and Federico Fellini’s Juliet of the Spirits, printed in their original languages. To his right, there’s a bookshelf filled with multiple volumes of defunct cinephile magazines from England. “I love the film library and all the stuff they do,

Naomi Kawase to Direct 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games Film
Japanese auteur, Naomi Kawase has been selected to direct the official film of the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. She won the contest with a proposal that demonstrated a “nuanced understanding of Japanese culture and Olympic values.”

Kawase is a regular at the Cannes film festival. Her works include “Sweet Bean,” “Suzaku,” and “Still The Water.”

The director of the official film must bring a unique editorial angle, and aim to capture the soul of a specific edition of the Olympics, while also considering the broader social and cultural context, the International Olympic Committee said. Kawase’s bid was chosen by Japanese film experts, international film experts, and the Olympic Foundation for Culture and Heritage which advised the committee.

Previous directors of the official film include Milos Forman, Kon Ichikawa, Claude Lelouch, and Carlos Saura. She is the fifth woman to direct the official film, following Caroline Rowland (London 2012), Gu Jun

Movie Poster of the Week: The Posters of the 6th New York Film Festival

  • MUBI
Above: French grande for Capricious Summer. Artist: F. Dervanore.As the 56th New York Film Festival winds down this weekend, I wanted to look back half a century to the 6th edition of the festival. Uppermost in everyone’s minds in September 1968 was Czechoslovakia, which, after a brief seven months of liberation known as the Prague Spring, had been invaded less than a month before the festival began, by Warsaw Pact tanks and troops intended to suppress reforms. Whether it had been planned before the Soviet invasion, the 6th New York Film Festival notably opened and closed with Czech films: Jiri Menzel’s Capricious Summer and Milos Forman’s The Firemen’s Ball. It also featured Jan Nemec’s previously banned 1966 film A Report on the Party and the Guests which had been released in ’68 under the reformist president Alexander Dubček and shown as a special event on Czech national

‘A Star Is Born’: Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga to make Oscar history?

‘A Star Is Born’: Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga to make Oscar history?
Over the 90-years of Oscar history, seven films have scored wins in both Best Actor and Best Actress on the big night. This year could see, for the first time in more than two decades, an eighth join this exclusive group of Oscar favorites.

A Star Is Born” proved the toast of the Telluride, Toronto and Venice Film Festivals, earning critical raves that favorably compared it to the three prior eponymous films, from 1937, 1954 and 1976. Stars Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga have been lauded for their turns in the film and now lead in Gold Derby’s odds in Best Actor and Best Actress.

With Fredric March and Janet Gaynor earning Oscar nominations for the 1937 original and James Mason and Judy Garland having garnered recognition for the 1954 musical remake, Cooper and Gaga are well-positioned to at least score nominations for the latest version. Should both prevail, “A Star Is Born” will

Oscar flashback: Portraying a real-life musician could be key to winning

Oscar flashback: Portraying a real-life musician could be key to winning
Among this year’s leading Oscar contenders for Best Actor is Emmy winner Rami Malek (“Mr. Robot”) for his star turn as the late Freddie Mercury, the legendary lead vocalist of the rock band Queen, in “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Should Malek reap an Oscar bid, he will mark the 12th leading man to date recognized for his portrayal of a real-life musician.

First to achieve this feat was James Cagney, nominated for his lively depiction of Broadway composer and performer George M. Cohan in “Yankee Doodle Dandy” (1942). On Oscar night, Cagney was triumphant, scoring the lone Oscar of his storied career.

Later in the decade, a pair of actors earned recognition for portraying real-life musicians, the first being Cornel Wilde, up for his performance as Polish pianist Frederic Chopin in “A Song to Remember” (1945). The following year, Larry Parks was a nominee for portraying singer and actor Al Jolson in “The Jolson Story

Louis Garrel Finally Gets His Jean-Claude Carrière Collaboration With ‘A Faithful Man’ – Toronto Studio

Louis Garrel Finally Gets His Jean-Claude Carrière Collaboration With ‘A Faithful Man’ – Toronto Studio
A celebrated French actor known for The Dreamers and Godard Mon Amour, Louis Garrel recently realized a longtime dream, coming together to write a film with venerated French writer Jean-Claude Carrière. That film, A Faithful Man, examines a couple’s complicated relationship from the time she leaves him for his best friend to her eventual return, after her new lover dies.

“It’s about sex and death, and broken friendship—in general, it’s a French movie,” Garrel joked yesterday, sitting down with Deadline ahead of the film’s Toronto premiere. Working closely with the 82-year-old Carrière—known for collaborations with Milos Forman and Luis Buñuel, among others—Garrel began with a plot by French dramatist Marivaux, eventually starring in his own film, as he has with each of his features.

For Garrel, balancing his responsibilities as director and star wasn’t difficult at all, instead making the entire process easier.

‘Celebrity Skin’ at 20: Hole, Hollywood and the Reinvention of Courtney Love
By the time Hole‘s third album Celebrity Skin had been released in the fall of 1998, the world had already met two different Courtney Loves. The first was a vitriolic weapon of self-destruction: a brash bottle blonde with smeared red lipstick, ripped tights and coquettish babydoll dresses, who growled and sneered with the best of them. The word “troubled” became synonymous with her name and bled into her music: the Pacific Northwest-bred alt-rock band married riot grrrl ethos with the heaviness of the grunge scene her husband Kurt Cobain became the wearied face of.

John Carter Dies: ‘Lean On Me’, ‘Barbershop’ Film Editor Was 95

John Carter Dies: ‘Lean On Me’, ‘Barbershop’ Film Editor Was 95
John Carter, the pioneering African-American film editor whose credits spanned 1968’s Paper Lion and the original The Heartbreak Kid through Lean On Me, Barbershop and Madea’s Family Reunion, died August 13 at his home in White Plains, New York. He was 95.

Carter’s death was reported by his family in a notice in The New York Times. He was the first African-American editor to join the American Cinema Editors society.

A native of Newark, New Jersey, Carter began his career with Paper Lion, the comedy-drama based on George Plimpton’s New Journalism classic chronicling the author’s first-person account of enduring a grueling Detroit Lions training camp. The film starred Alan Alda as a fictionalized Plimpton.

Prior to Paper Lion, Carter had worked for 12 years at CBS – the family says he was the first African-American film editor employed by network television in New York – finishing his career there as supervising
