Great Moments in Horror Actressing: Margot Kidder

"This genre gives actresses some really juicy lines and roles,but denies them the acclaim that comes from more 'serious' roles.Kidder was a gifted actress who was indelible in a few films."-Lady Edith

"She won a Genie for it - because Canadians have great taste!"-Mike in Canada

Posterized: Jim Jarmusch

by Nathaniel R

The Ohio-born indie auteur Jim Jarmusch first made waves in the cinematic landscape with his black and white sophomore featureStranger Than Paradisein the mid 80s.It was a big critical success and arthouse sleeper hit.He was suddenly the "cool"new director.His career since then has been,like most critical darling careers,full of small waves of audience popularity versus indifference,sometimes not in relation to the critical fates of whichever film arrived.For example,Paterson(2016),his most recent picture prior to the brand new zombie comedyThe Dead Don't Die(opening today)was a huge critical succcess in its year,but grossed just $2 million at the US box office.

Through it all critics have mostly been loyal and actors with more eclectic taste have become his regulars: Tilda Swinton,Tom Waits,and Bill Murray have all made 4 pictures with him.

How many of his pictures have you seen?The posters are after the jump...

Review: The Dead Don't Die

byChris Feil

A few years back,Jim Jarmusch brought fresh life to the oft-revisited vampire genre with the sexyOnly Lovers Left Alive.This summer,he attempts to do the same with the tropes of the zombie film inThe Dead Don't Die,drolly taking on our mindnumbed obsessions in the modern dissociative era.Should he take on another monster genre soon - who better to find the poetic ennui of a werewolf,truth be told - then he should hope it results in something more akin to his look at bloodsuckers than that of his flesheaters.The Dead Don't Dieis a smug stinker.

The film is set in Centerville,"A very nice place to live!",a town small enough to house a single diner for restaurant options and with its gas station pulling double duty as its comic shop.News reports that the Earth has spun off its axis due to polar fracking is met by the townspeople with the mildest sense of alarm,at least as much as they can muster for a world outside that they just cain't understand.But that small town malaise is devoured once the local cemetery starts sprouting the reanimated dead.

RIP to Two Titans of European Cinema

ByGlenn Dunks

What a shock it was to hear over the last 24 hours of the deaths of bothRobby MüllerandClaude Lanzmann.These two icons of European cinema were 78 and 92 respectively and both gave so much to the universe and there are not enough hats to tip to their memories and their legacies.

Robby Müller was the Dutch-born cinematographer whose regular collaborations with the likes of Wim Wenders,Jim Jarmusch and Lars Von Trier were the stuff of legend.Who can forget those stunning tableaus ofBreaking the Wavesor his regular plays on black and white with Jarmusch as well as Sally Potter'sThe Tango Lesson.I'm not as well versed on Jarmusch's films as others,but I gatherDead Manwith Johnny Depp is the one worth gawking over the most.

And I know it's become a little bit fashionable to roll one's eyes at people going on about the virtues of celluloid over digital,but I guarantee you have never seen colours projected onto a screen quite like those twilight blues of Wenders'Paris,Texas...

Cannes Closing Ceremony Tomorrow - Any Guesses?

The 69th annual Festival du Cannes wraps up this weekend with reprise screenings of competition titles and the closing ceremony tomorrow evening at 7:15 PM (Cannes time so a handful of hours earlier here in NYC).Sean Penn'sThe Last Facestarring Javier Bardem and Charlize Theron (pictured in all her androgynous chic,left,at the premiere),Asghar Farhadi'sThe Salesman(which takes its title from an in movie amateur production ofDeath of a Salesman),and Paul Verhoeven'sEllestarring Isabelle Huppert were among the last titles to premiere.Don't expectThe Last Face,which was met with hostility to show up in the prizes.

Here are the 21 competition titles loosely grouped by your hosts vague perceptions of how well received they were (you might group them differently as its my policy not to read full reviews from Cannes - which tend to be spoiler filled for films that are months away from release).George Miller's jury will name one of these the Palme D'Or winner,one the Jury Prize winner,and then we'll see who takes Director,Actress (we have a few ideas as to who might win),and Actor.Depending on how the jury plays it we might get a couple of other prizes,too...
