No Omerta As Coppola, Pacino And Cast Recall ‘Godfather’ Shoot – Tribeca

10 hours ago

Al Pacino had to jump through hoops – including at least six screen tests – before securing the role of Michael Corleone in The Godfather. Marlon Brando was so into playing Vito Corleone that during an early reading for director Francis Ford Coppola, he answered a phone call in character. A pivotal baptism scene, set against an orgy of assassinations as Michael consolidated his power, didn’t work until a second edit and the addition of an organ track to weave it together… »

‘How To Be A Latin Lover’ Review: Mexico’s Eugenio Derbez Has Star Appeal, But Lame Comedy Throws It All Away

28 April 2017 5:27 PM, PDT

The one thing I can’t stand is to see a decent cast wasted on dopey material, but that is exactly the case with How to Be a Latin Lover, a flat and generally unfunny attempt to expand Mexican superstar Eugenio Derbez’s international appeal. I loved his previous import, 2013’s heartwarming and hilarious hit Instructions Not Included, which, like his latest, was released through the Lionsgate latin subsidiary Pantelion Films. Unfortunately this highly talented comic actor… »

And although the French film industry is largely anti-Le Pen, filmmakers and celebrities have been less… »

28 April 2017 4:00 PM, PDT

David Crowley was many things—”a visionary filmmaker, a political activist, an Iraq veteran, a family man—what documentarian Erik Nelson calls “an American hybrid.” In 2010, the up-and-coming voice in fringe politics embarked on a film project titled Gray State. Set in a dystopian near-future, the would-be project depicted a world where civil liberties were being violated by an overly powerful federal government, gaining a mass following from an online community of… »
