10 October 2017 7:26 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – The Rome Film Festival has announced a lineup full of crowd-pleasers, many out of Hollywood, that span a wide range of genres. The fest’s 12th edition opens with Scott Cooper’s brutal Western, “Hostiles.”

Though world premieres are scarce, they include Japanese director Junji Shimizu’s manga pic “Mazinger Z Infinity” (pictured), produced by Toei Animation to mark the 45th anniversary of the “Mazinger” franchise, which has a global following. Its creator, manga artist Go Nagai, will be on hand.

The closer will be the world premiere of Italian title “The Place” by Paolo Genovese, whose “Perfect Strangers” was a mega-hit at the home box office and has sold widely around the world.

Sandwiched in between are lots of Hollywood awards-season hopefuls, including Kathryn Bigelow’s “Detroit,” Craig Gillespie’s “I, Tonya,” Richard Linklater’s “Last Flag Flying,” Steven Soderbergh’s “Logan Lucky,” and Netflix’s “Mudbound” by Dee Rees.

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, »

‘Last Flag Flying’ Helmer Richard Linklater On War Drama That “Could Unite People” — The Contenders London

6 October 2017 9:33 AM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Don’t believe everything you read, Richard Linklater said today at Deadline’s inaugural Contenders London event, sitting down opposite Bryan Cranston to discuss his New York Film Festival-premiering drama, Last Flag Flying. 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… »

‘SuperMansion’: Chris Pine and Bryan Cranston Break Their Puppets In Behind-The-Scenes Footage — Watch

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]

5 October 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

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. »

Richard Linklater on Robert Bresson, ‘Taxi Driver,’ and Meeting Robert Altman

3 October 2017 11:07 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Richard Linklater’s new film Last Flag Flying may not be in theaters until November, but it opened this year’s New York Film Festival and the director sat down with festival director Kent Jones for extensive at the Walter Reade Theater on Saturday, September 30.

On Cinema is an annual event at the festival where world-renowned filmmakers invite festival goers to learn their cinematic inspiration and influences. Linklater built the conversation around his favorite moments in film, including The Long Goodbye, Pickpocket and Taxi Driver, among others. From the beginning of his talk, it was clear Linklater held reverence for everyone he was to discuss, but none received praise like Robert Bresson and Robert Altman.

Linklater fixates on the passing moments in film, which he calls the stuff we remember from cinema. He’s gifted American cinema with a philosophy unique to the last twenty years of filmmaking and was »

Richard Linklater On His Favorite Films & Cinematic Influences [Nyff]

3 October 2017 10:31 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Richard Linklater had a celebrated return to form with the debut of his new film “Last Flag Flying,” which was shown opening night at the New York Film Festival. Following its warm festival debut, Linklater sat down with Nyff Director Kent Jones to discuss the films that inspired him most. “What is film?  Linklater said, “To me its moments. Not necessarily the best moment in a film or the most emotional ones, but the moments that jarred me as a viewer and a filmmaker.”

As expected, his choices included some of the greatest films ever made, starting with “Raging Bull.” “That film changed my life,” he remarked, “make no mistake.” Emphasizing the sound design of the film, and a presence of a flaw in the scene he chose, Linklater applauded the picture, saying that, “recreating something but also translating that realness into it is so profound.”  He reminisced that as »

2 October 2017 11:42 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Bad news for anyone hoping Joaquin Phoenix’s big win at Cannes would result in his fourth Oscar nomination and possibly his first win.

The release date officially takes Phoenix and Ramsay out of the race. The latter won Best Screenplay at Cannes.

Hollywood Contenders – A first crack at 2017 Golden Globe predictions

2 October 2017 10:03 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Folks, we’ve reached a new point in the season. Now that we’re really getting into the heart of the fall months and pretty close to entering what is essentially the tail end of the 2017 movie release season, I wanted to take my first official crack this season at a set of Golden Globe predictions. In fact, I’d hoped to do this last week, but enough other news broke (plus the Blade Runner 2049 embargo lifting early) that it got delayed to these first days of October. As always, I’ll be mixing these in with Oscar predictions going forward, but early Globe picks are always of special interest to me, especially since sometimes you’re still guessing category placement and just what the tastes of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association will look like at the time. They’re almost impossible to accurately guess off the bat the first time around, »
