Happy 25th,Logan Lerman!

by David Upton

Congratulations are due: Logan Lerman's endearing baby face has lasted to his twenty-fifth birthday!It's not that unusual for actors to play teenagers even into their thirties,but Lerman seems especially stuck in transition,repeatedly playing similar tunes of young men who are particularly prey to societal pressures.Last year'sIndignationthrew him back in time,with his personal dramas set against an Ohioan college in 1951,but it was his previous college adventure that has proven Lerman's career high to date...

Review: Indignation

Manuelhere with a review ofIndignation,now in theaters.

Indignationis the type of film that,even if you didn't know was adapted from a novel (by Philip Roth),you'd describe as "literary."Part of this has to do with its dialogue which is both highly literate and thematically robust.And the other part comes from the strategically and efficaciously deployed voice overs that all but announce themselves as being cut whole cloth from a novel with a highly sophisticated narrator whose attempts at self-knowledge would be comical if they weren't so earnestly intense.

The very first pages of Roth's novel introduces us to Jewish student,Marcus (a wonderful Logan Lerman) as he's rankled by his father's sudden mistrust of him ahead of his heading to college.His father is clearly afraid for his boy—he's seen too many of his relatives head to Korea never to come back.His pestering (and in the film,Danny Burstein gets at Marcus's father worry as tinged by his own anticipated grief) leads him to constantly keep tabs on him,asking him where he's been,how he can be trusted,and more pointedly: how does he know Marcus won't go to places where he'll get killed...

Sundance Buzz Pt 2: Certain Women,The Intervention,Christine, More...

Robert Redford wanted this Sundance season to be about diversity of voices and young voices,too.We covered some of that in the last buzz installment but this here's installment of buzz is mostly about women.Well,and Logan Lerman.He's one of many stars hoping to up their game and thus career by way of indie drama success.That is a quick way to up your cred as an actor -- look what it's done for Kristen Stewart recently -- but its weird that it works so well to keep careers going since box office is so rarely part of the equation.At least for festival pick-ups in the increasingly fragmented post-festival market.Do you go video on demand,streaming,theaters,or some weird ass combo of both?

The trick for actors is being great in a movie and also lucking out and having that movie around you be up to your level or at least accessible enough to provide you a nice showcase.

AFI Fest's Young Hollywood Panel on Superheroes,Punching,and Queen Latifah

MargaretandAnne Mariehere,reporting from AFI Fest ("presented by [corporation]!").

Last night the AFI and the LA Times kicked off a series of panel discussions with its "Young Hollywood Roundtable,"whose panelists ranged widely in age and perspective but are all of whom making their mark on the movie business.Jenny Slate,writer/star of critical hitObvious Childand formerSNLcastmember,was joined by Jena Malone (Inherent Vice,The Hunger Games: Mockingjay),Logan Lerman (Fury,The Perks of Being a Wallflower),and Joey King (Wish I Was Here,FX'sFargo).

Here are 8 lessons we learned from the Young Hollywood Roundtable:

Anne Marie:

1.Queen Latifah's royal legacy is enduring and eternal.When asked who her inspiration was,Joey King informed the audience that Queen Latifah is underrated.What followed was a 5 minute Latifah love-fest where Jenny Slate promised a detailed list of reasons why Queen Latifah is amazing ("on my personal stationary") and Logan Lerman revealed that his biggest inspiration is...Queen Latifah.

2.Jena Malone has a lot of very intelligent but frustratingly vague things to say about superhero movies.No confirmation from the newly-redheaded actress as to what her role is onBatman vs.Superman,but when Kaufman asked her about the pros and cons of working on a major superhero flick,Malone was frank: "We're artists,but we're also businesswomen."But working on a blockbuster isn't just about money.It has to tell a story as well.

Review: Fury

Michael C herewondering if we are ever going to get more films about 20th Century conflicts other than World War 2?How long has it been since we've had a solid Vietnam film?DidThree KingsandJarheadsay all there was to say about the first Iraq war?

At this point,it feels like there are enough World War II movies to reconstruct something close to the entirety of the conflict,across all theaters of operation.Audiences can be forgiven if the appearance of yet another crew of hard-bitten soldiers marauding through the German countryside in David Ayer'sFurystrike us as more than a bit superfluous.The diffrence this time is thatFurywants to strip away the gauzy Greatest Generation glow that has diminished other depictions of this subject matter.No American flags flapping in the wind,no swells of violins,no famous battles.Just the anonymous,grisly work of tank combat in the waning days of the war,where the only task left is to feed enough of the remaining enemy into the meat grinder to hasten the inevitable German surrender.

It's a compelling argument forFury'sexistence,at least for the first half of the film. As the tank rolls along,however,Furysurrenders its attempts to navigate the harsh no man's land where ethics and war collide.What began as a corrective against the false comfort of your granddaddy's war films morphs into a compilation of war movie clichés,complete with characters dying in order of billing,and glorious hero shots of doomed last stands against impossible odds.By the end it's Frank Miller's300with tanks.

"Ideals are peaceful,history is violent,"says Brad Pitt's weathered tank commander Wardaddy.
