Lff Review: Linklater's 'Last Flag Flying' Has a Few Nice Conversations

1 hour ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Trust in Richard Linklater. Like any great filmmaker, no matter what story he decides to tell, or whatever film he wants to make, it'll almost always be good. I will full well admit that I had low expectations for this film before going in to see it, I'm not exactly sure why. Maybe I just didn't want to see another film about American soldiers (there have been so many recently), or veterans complaining about how things are, or the American flag. Whatever it was, I was wrong. Linklater's Last Flag Flying is an impressively level-headed, intelligent film with some nice, heartwarming conversations amongst good friends. It's a buddy film about three aging marines who go on a roadtrip around America, reminiscing about their pasts and catching up. Last Flag Flying introduces us first to Larry 'Doc' Shepherd, played by Steve Carell, who decides to go find his old marine friends »

“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”: October Oscar predictions

20 October 2017 10:55 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Hot on the heels of the precursor season launching yesterday, I have a brand new set of Academy Award predictions to share with you all. There are some definite changes to be seen, with the most noteworthy being that Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is really making a play towards the top of a lot of categories. Martin McDonagh’s film is quietly starting to seem like potentially the frontrunner in Best Picture. That’s just the buzz around town right now, buoyed by how amazing the movie actually is. How that’s handled is just one item on the docket today. Questions will soon be answered, and that’s pretty damn exciting folks. Another thing you’ll likely notice is that I’ve moved The Post and Phantom Thread from predictions for now. They’re just outside of the nominated fields, at least until they either screen, confirm a 2017 release date, »

The fifth annual Middleburg Film Festival will run from Oct. 19-22 in the picturesque community of Middleburg, Va.

Airport, as well as a starry slate of Oscar contenders and provocative indie gems.

“We’re situated in horse and wine country, which makes for a very intimate setting,” says Johnson, who founded the festival in 2012. Since when it has grown considerably.

“We’re attracting roughly 4,000 visitors, and we’re a completely walkable festival,” Koch says. “We’ll be screening 25 films at various venues all across town, and even if we don’t have a traditional theater in Middleburg, that hasn’t stopped us from putting on a terrific event.  Everything from the town’s community center to the library to the performing arts school is retrofitted with Dcp technology for the screenings.

The 2017 Woodstock Film Festival concluded Oct. 15 with awards for actor Bill Pullman and Bob Byington’s dark comedy feature “Infinity Baby.” Stylized by its founders as “fiercely independent,” the fest celebrated its 18th annual iteration in Woodstock, Rhinebeck, Kingston, Rosendale, and Saugerties, New York.

53rd Chicago International Film Festival Capsule Review – Last Flag Flying (2017)

17 October 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

“Those that have been following the acting career of Steve Carell are most likely aware that he has made attempts to shed his comedic image by taking on dramatic roles, particularly ones that also benefit from his natural timing for humor. However, in Last Flag Flying (the latest film from extremely talented writer and director Richard Linklater) Carell, playing a Vietnam War veteran 30 years removed from the hellacious horrors of war who in December of 2003 must bury his 21-year-old son killed over in Iraq, is fatigued and depressed. For as much screen time as Steve Carell has, the distant Larry (commonly referred to as Doc by friends) has very few lines. Still, every sentence of dialogue resonates, as Carell pulls off a masterful turn that plays to his expressive body language in ways unlike anything the veteran has ever done.”

61st BFI London Film Festival Review – Last Flag Flying (2017)

9 October 2017 4:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last Flag Flying, 2017.

Directed by Richard Linklater.

Starring Steve Carell, Bryan Cranston, Laurence Fishburne and J. Quinton Johnson.

Synopsis:

Thirty years after they served together in Vietnam, a former Navy Corpsman Larry “Doc” Shepherd re-unites with his old buddies, former Marines Sal Nealon and Reverend Richard Mueller, to bury his son, a young Marine killed in the Iraq War.

Richard Linklater is a director who specialises in on the cusp, transitional dramas. Dazed and Confused sees a group of college kids on kick out day, the Before trilogy picks up with Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy’s characters at various crossroads points in their lives, and his masterful Boyhood is one glorious study of identity in transition as the central character grows from the age of 7 to 19 in front of our eyes. Even School of Rock culminates in the heartwarming progression from prep school snotnosers into fully fledged rock gods. »

Lff 2017: ‘Last Flag Flying’ Review: Dir. Richard Linklater (2017)

9 October 2017 4:32 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Last Flag Flying review: Bryan Cranston, Steve Carell and Laurence Fishburne star as three Vietnam war vets who take to the road in this warm, affecting tale from Richard Linklater.

Last Flag Flying review by Paul Heath.

Last Flag Flying review

Richard Linklater is enjoying quite the career now. Following his Oscar nominations for the brilliant 12-years-in-the-making Boyhood, his nostalgic look back at the 1970s, and indeed his indie masterpiece that is Dazed and Confused with the much-loved Everybody Wants Some!!, Linklater has now opted for something completely different – a character-driven comedy-drama based around the fall-out of war, loss and never leaving a comrade behind with Last Flag Flying.

Billed as a ‘spiritual sequel’ to Hal Ashby’s 1973 Oscar-nominated, Vietnam-set movie The Last Detail, a film which boasted the talents of Jack Nicholson, Randy Quaid and Otis Young, Last Flag Flying is set in 2003 during the invasion of Iraq. This story, »

Based on Darryl Ponicsan’s novel of the same name, which is itself a sequel to his 1973 novel, The Last Detail—a piece that was adapted into a classic film starring Jack Nicholson—Linklater’s film is more of a companion piece than anything else… »

5 October 2017 3:45 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Crackle’s stop-motion animation comedy, “SuperMansion,” stands out as unique in the television landscape, as very few animated shows blend cutting-edge technology with old-school stop-motion techniques in quite the same way.

For a glimpse as to how they make it happen, Crackle has released the below exclusive look, hosted by executive producer Bryan Cranston (who also voices superhero Titanium Rex), at the many cogs in the “SuperMansion” machine.

This includes a tour of the sets, a meet-and-greet with the puppet designers, and even a look at how individual costumes are handcrafted, while a 3-D printer is used to fabricate the artist’s designs for each tangible, miniature character.

‘Last Flag Flying’ Review: Steve Carell Steals the Show in Richard Linklater’s New Drama [New York Film Festival]

There’s one thing that Richard Linklater said while attending this year’s New York Film Festival that’s stuck with me: “To me, time and cinema are so intertwined that you can’t even separate them.” It’s a sentiment that’s similarly inextricable from his latest film, Last Flag Flying. There’s no escaping time. The movie is a snapshot […]

Amazon Studios’ Best Chance to Disrupt the Oscars Again Lies With ‘The Big Sick’

3 October 2017 2:33 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Amazon Studios owns the 2017 New York Film Festival with opener “Last Flag Flying” from Richard Linklater, Todd Haynes’ “Wonderstruck” as the centerpiece gala October 7, and Woody Allen’s “Wonder Wheel” closing it out October 15 — but taking those movies into the crowded fall marketplace and landing Oscar nominations and wins is another matter altogether.

Of course, Amazon has done it before: At Sundance 2016, it paid $10 million for Kenneth Lonergan’s “Manchester By the Sea” and took the movie (via Roadside Attractions) all the way to six Oscar nominations, including Best Picture. It won two, for Best Actor Casey Affleck and Lonergan for Best Original Screenplay, and earned a robust $47.6 million domestic.

This year, the deep-pocketed studio challenger — which, unlike Netflix, supports the industry’s established theatrical paradigm, 90-day window and all — has a wider swath of films to compete in multiple awards categories. But there are several key differences this time. »
