SXSW: Jesse Eisenberg in "The Art of Self-Defense"

Abe Fried-Tanzer reporting from SXSW

How seriously are we supposed to take a movie about Jesse Eisenberg learning karate?WatchingThe Art of Self-Defense,from director Riley Stearns,there are many different answers to that question.Eisenberg's lanky frame and token physical awkwardness make his training in martial arts a laughable concept from the start,though its origins are brutal.At the beginning of the film Eisenberg's Casey is mugged and beaten by masked assailants while walking home with a bag of dog food.This film feels like a parody,but one that's trying to mock too many things...

Nathaniel's Ballot: Best Actor / Supporting Actor

'It's not redundant to still be handing out awards after the Oscars as long as the awards themselves aren't the same!' This is what I tell myself as I wrap up the Film Bitch Awards two weeks later than is proper!亚博主页There's just 3 categories to go now (so we'll be done by next weekend) before we can hold the world's fastest awards ceremony.It involves a behind-the-scenes slapping of gold,silver,and bronze visual designations onto three of the nominees in each category.

Today,we're talking about the men...

Beauty vs Beast: Lesbian Love Song

Jason Adams fromMNPPhere -- at the Tribeca Film Fest last year I weirdly reviewed two movies involving Alessandro Nivola and Orthodox Judaism.The first one is calledTo Dustand Nivola (along with his wife actress Emily Mortimer) produced it -- it starsSon of Saul's Géza Röhrig and Matthew Broderick as an extremely odd couple grappling with the afterlife.Here is my review,and you can watch the trailerover here.To Dustis finally hitting some theaters this weekend,and I highly recommend seeking it out.I really dig it.

The other movieI reviewedat Tribeca 2018 was Sebastian Lelio'sDisobedience,which came out last year and which in a just world we'd be celebrating its several Oscar nominations just about now.Hey I did my part --Disobediencegot mentions in both end-of-year polls I have a say in,The Team Experience Awardshere on this site as well asthe Dorian Awardsfor the GALECA guild of LGBT critics.But being a great film is its own reward,andDisobediencewill be remembered for a very long time as such.Now let's face off its Rachels -- McAdams is Esti,the one who stayed,and Weisz is Ronit,the one who went away...

PREVIOUSLYLast week'sCan You Ever Forgive Mepollwas as close as two friends sweeping up cat turds could be,but Melissa McCarthy got the best of Richard E Grant in the end with 53% of the vote.Said/3rtful:

"Unprepared for how emotionally affected I would be by this movie.I think the casting of McCarthy and those initial cut trailers gave no clue of the emotional wallop this movie carries."

BIFA ❤️ "The Favourite"10 Times

by Nathaniel R

Best Supporting Actor Alessandro Nivola

The 21st annual British Independent Film Awards were held today in London with sexy Russell Tovey hosting andThe Favouritewinning *GULP* 10 awards (that has to be a record at BIFA,doesn't it?).But the most wonderful surprise news around these parts is the Best Handsome win -- excuse us,Best Supporting Actor win for Alessandro Nivola.We were certain that he'd make it through the whole season with no hardware for his (typically) excellent work inDisobediencebut BIFA happily proved us wrong.Nivola is of course something of an honorary Brit since he's married to a very fine British actress (Emily Mortimer) and has often worked in British cinema.

The BIFA winners and a few more notes after the jump...
