From Silent Film Icon and His Women to Nazi Era's Frightening 'Common Folk': Lgbt Pride Movie Series (Final)

From Silent Film Icon and His Women to Nazi Era's Frightening 'Common Folk': Lgbt Pride Movie Series (Final)
(See previous post: “Gay Pride Movie Series Comes to a Close: From Heterosexual Angst to Indonesian Coup.”) Ken Russell's Valentino (1977) is notable for starring ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev as silent era icon Rudolph Valentino, whose sexual orientation, despite countless gay rumors, seems to have been, according to the available evidence, heterosexual. (Valentino's supposed affair with fellow “Latin LoverRamon Novarro has no basis in reality.) The female cast is also impressive: Veteran Leslie Caron (Lili, Gigi) as stage and screen star Alla Nazimova, ex-The Mamas & the Papas singer Michelle Phillips as Valentino wife and Nazimova protégée Natacha Rambova, Felicity Kendal as screenwriter/producer June Mathis (The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse), and Carol Kane – lately of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt fame. Bob Fosse's Cabaret (1972) is notable as one of the greatest musicals ever made. As a 1930s Cabaret presenter – and the Spirit of Germany – Joel Grey was the year's Best Supporting Actor Oscar winner. Liza Minnelli

Newswire: Liam Neeson will have a particular set of equestrian skills in The Trainer

  • The AV Club
After years of focusing on rescuing his fictional family members from bad guys, Liam Neeson is taking yet another step back into the world of prestige drama. Deadline reports that Neeson will star in The Trainer, a new movie from The Crying Game director Neil Jordan. Neeson will play a walled-off man in Ireland whose life is upended by a teenaged refugee named Nadya and a horse. The equine, called Allabelle, “is about to prove that they may all have one race left inside of them,” according to Deadline. Neeson and Jordan have worked together before on films including Breakfast On Pluto and Michael Collins.

This year sees Neeson in two non-action roles. He appears in Martin Scorsese’s highly anticipated Silence, which follows persecuted priests in Japan, and in A Monster Calls, about a boy who takes lessons from a talking tree monster—yes, Neeson—while his mother dies

Liam Neeson reuniting with Neil Jordan for The Trainer

Liam Neeson has signed on to appear in The Trainer, which will reunite him with his High Spirits, Michael Collins and Breakfast on Pluto director Neil Jordan, who is helming the project from a script by David Donohue, James Villemaire and Todd Komarnicki (Sully).

The official synopsis for The Trainer reads:

John Moore (Neeson) is a premier race-horse trainer in the west of Ireland, who beset by tragedy, loses everything he cherishes, and almost forgets how to live. Into his life comes a teenage refugee, Nadya, who has fled her own horrors, and now finds herself in a confounding new world. Their only connection, to themselves, and ultimately to their own hearts, is a horse called Allabelle. Who is about to prove they may all still have one race left inside of them.”

Filming on The Trainer will get underway in Ireland in the summer.

U.K. Film, TV Industry Players React to ‘Seismic’ Brexit Decision

British voters’ stunning decision to turn their backs on the European Union has left many of the country’s leading TV and film players reeling. Here, some of them reflect on the new, uncertain situation Britain now finds itself in and how it might affect the industry.

Jane Tranter’s production company Bad Wolf has a first-look deal with HBO, and is producing BBC-New Line TV series “His Dark Materials.” Previously, as a BBC senior executive, her credits included “Doctor Who” and “Da Vinci’s Demons”:

Hollywood's Next Big Thing: 'Preacher' Breakout Ruth Negga Heads to Cannes With New Jeff Nichols Film

Hollywood's Next Big Thing: 'Preacher' Breakout Ruth Negga Heads to Cannes With New Jeff Nichols Film
Ruth Negga's recent rise is one of those 10-year overnight success stories. A decade before her breakout roles on AMC's new comic-book series Preacher (debuting May 22) and in Jeff Nichols' Cannes premiere Loving, the Ethiopian-Irish actress (her dad was a doctor, her mom's a nurse) caught dir­ector Neil Jordan's eye on the Dublin stage. He cast her in 2005's Breakfast on Pluto, which led to a string of small roles and now a breakthrough year that also includes Universal's June 10 debut of Warcraft.

‘Boy Meets Girl’ Review

  • Blogomatic3000
Stars: Michael Galante, Michelle Hendley, Jean Devereux Koester, Ethan Major, Scott Martineck, Christopher McHale, Benj Mirman, Randall Newsome, Jacob Perkins, Joseph Ricci | Written and Directed by Eric Schaeffer

My gender identity is complex, but my life experiences intersect frequently with those of trans women and it’s a category I feel proud to be partially resident in. I dress femme, I’m starting estrogen in a couple weeks, I’ve flirted with voice training, and when I go out for a walk it’s pretty solid odds that at least one passer-by is going to scream some shopworn slur at me. This review was a deeply personal experience for me, and it’s as much a breakdown of my thoughts on life as a trans person as it is a dissection of a sweet, uncomplicated rom-com.

There are several longstanding traditions in Western film and television regarding trans women. First,

Ruth Negga Is Preacher's Tulip
After years wandering the desert of development in various forms, the long-gestating adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s classic Preacher graphic novel series is finally creeping closer to reality.

The State Within TV review: unknown knowns

A riveting BBC political thriller offering one of the most trenchant explorations yet of the sick symbiosis between big government and big business. I’m “biast” (pro): love Jason Isaacs and Ben Daniels

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I wasn’t planning on writing anything about this. I only came across it on Netflix (it’s available in the U.S. and the U.K., but not Canada) because I’m crushing on Ben Daniels (just inducted into the Boyfriend Hall of Fame) and there were no Law & Order: UK reruns on at that moment and I needed a fix. And this had Jason Isaacs in it, too! Double yum.

But oh my god, now that I’ve finished all seven episodes — it’s a limited miniseries, so that’s all there will ever be — I feel like I

Berlin Film Review: ‘Aloft’

Berlin Film Review: ‘Aloft’
Claudia Llosa expands her preoccupations with mysticism and superstition in the modern world, working her way up from a medieval-minded Andean village in “Madeinusa” to faith healing at the frigid far reaches of the Arctic Circle with “Aloft.” But this time, instead of seeming plugged into some primitive native religion, the Peruvian helmer invents a rickety belief system as a pretext for tearing it all down, botching the telling of a more satisfying character-based story in the process. Replacing melancholy muse Magaly Solier with an equally forlorn-looking international cast led by a courageous Jennifer Connelly, Llosa stands to baffle more than her usual circle of arthouse adherents with this doleful downer, snapped up by Sony Classics before its Berlinale premiere.

Chief among Llosa’s new champions is exec producer Mark Johnson, the Academy foreign-language committee chair who has made a rather controversial habit of signing talent while boosting them to

Neil Jordan Returns To "Byzantium"-Not That He Left

  • JustPressPlay
Neil Jordan is the director of some of the finest films in modern history: The Crying Game, Interview With The Vampire, Breakfast on Pluto, for example. Byzantium functions as a loose pseudo-sequel to Vampire with the same level of intensity and sensuality as The Crying Game. It’s not like Jordan’s back or anything, the dude never went away, but it’s more of a return to form after the somewhat disappointing Brave One and Ondine.

Exclusive: UK Quad Poster for Day of the Flowers

  • HeyUGuys
BAFTA-winning director John Roberts (Paulie, Say Good-bye) returns behind the camera for his first feature in over a decade with Day of the Flowers, a comedy-drama telling the tale of two strong-willed Scottish sisters.

Watch: 'Inception' Star Cillian Murphy's Directorial Debut, a 'Meh'-Worthy Ballet Music Video
Cillian Murphy, the star of "Breakfast on Pluto" and the villain in "Inception," has fixed his piercing eyes on filming ballet. In the Irish actor's video for the British band Money's new single "Hold Me Forever," he spends a lot of time paying attention to the feet of the dancers of the English National Ballet.  The video, part of which was filmed at The Old Vic Theatre in London, marks Murphy's directorial debut. Check it out below. It's certainly a departure from his days as the haunting Scarecrow in Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy:
