The New Classics - 20th Century Women

Michael Cusumanohere to thank you for making this post part of your own personal Mike Mills film today.I'm honored.

image via "books in movies"

To watch a Mike Mills movie is to continually ask,"Why don't more people make movies with this much freedom?"

His films deploy everything from news clips to rotating narrators to archival footage from a century ago.The screenplay will jump backwards in time,skimming through the characters' biographies,or forwards to glimpse the details of their death.The focus can zoom in to the most granular details or out to encompass the entire cosmos.I doubt he will ever make a film that doesn't include a shot of the stars.At least I hope he doesn't...

by Nathaniel R

Have you heard that news that Annette Bening and Michelle Pfeiffer have signed on as the leading ladies of a new feature film?If you've heard that news than you'll understand that I,Nathaniel,am typing this from heaven as I must have died and gone there for this to be true.Last thing I remember I was on a plane back to NYC (more on where I've been shortly) and then I was dead.Death by actressexuality.What a way to go.

The future film what done me in is calledTurn of Mindand it's based on the novel of the same name by Alice LaPlante.Gideon Raff (best known for creating the Israeli series that TV'sHomelandis based on) will be directing the thriller with Doug Wright (Quills)  doing the screenplay.Annette Bening plays Dr Jennifer White,a retiree suffering from Alzheimers and suddenly accused of killing her longtime best friend Amanda (Michelle Pfeiffer) and unable to remember whether she actually committed the crime...

Will the Oscar Success of "If Beale Street"Spur More Adaptations of James Baldwin's Work?

byMurtada Elfadl

Black authors have not been adapted the same way as their white peers because financiers don't put their money behind black authors.
-Barry Jenkins accepting Best Director at the Spirit Awards

Regina King understood what she was representing at the Oscars.亚博主页Not just her film,If Beale Street Could Talk,and all the people who worked on it but also the legacy of James Baldwin.She mentioned him on the red carpet on her way to the ceremony.Fittingly,she also started her speech with him...
