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

TIFF Review: "Wildlife"

byChris Feil

Paul Dano's directorial debutWildlifeis a period domestic drama with a fire in its gut.It's the kind of piercing portrait of a family that makes you want to marinate in all of its surprising details just as you desperately want to escape its breathlessly realized pain.

Picturing an emotionally desolate suburban America of shitty lawns and ranch style homes,Dano strikes a balance between toughness and compassion,cruelty and honesty.It's as if its family was built on the fault line of two massive tectonic plates and no matter how violent the inevitable eruption that is to come,it might be sadly better that they be ripped apart.For everyone.

"Wildlife"Teaser and The Best Actress Race

by Nathaniel R

I think most of expected to be seeing a lot more of Carey Mulligan in Oscar races after her stunning debut inAn Educationnine years ago.Yes.nine.years.ago.Crazy how time flies at the cinema.Contrary to those star-is-born expectations she has not been back in the mix yet,despite numerous films since,many of them "prestige"titles:Inside Llewyn Davis,Shame,Suffragette,Mudbound,The Great Gatsby,Far From the Madding Crowd.

But from the looks of theWildlifeteaser plus early critical raves she finally has a bonafide star showcase again...

Swiss Army Man Washes Ashore To Blu-ray & DVD

by Daniel Crooke

I suppose this is the part where I'm to mention thatSwiss Army Manprompted walkouts at its Sundance premiere,features Paul Dano propelling across the ocean on the back of Daniel Radcliffe's farting corpse,and that its sophomoric scatology dominates the runtime of the film.All of these things are true.But if you've been avoidingSwiss Army Manout of fear of offending your eyeballs,I implore you to clutch your pearls and give it a shot anyway now that the film has arrived on Blu-ray and DVD...

Jake and Tilda Serving Fashion on the 'Okja' Set

Category is: behind the scenes sci-fi satire realness.

Bong Joon-ho'sSnowpiercerfollow-upOkjaalready has one of the coolest casts since...well,Snowpiercer.And if the set photos from New York this weekend are any indication,the film itself will be even more outlandish than Joon-ho's last-at least as far as the cast is concerned.

The film returns Joon-ho to monster movie territory,but chaos and destruction to entertain when you have Tilda Swinton in and Jake Gyllenhaal in costumes like these?I don't know if Tilda is playing Taylor Swift and Jake is Rooster from a safari production ofAnnie,but this first look tells you everything you need to know about why you should be excited aboutOkja.

Does A24's Swiss Army Man Trailer Sink Or Swim?

When the raucous survival filmSwiss Army Manset Sundance aflame this January – aided in no small part from some infamously inflammatory methane – the only tidbit more shocking than hearing secondhand strands from its preposterous plot was the news thatindie dynamo distributer A24picked up its check to jet ski it across cinemas nationwide.Prompting walkouts that don't sound too dissimilar fromrecently announced Tribeca jurorand enfant terrible Sebastian Silva's 2015 submissionNasty Baby,Swiss Army Manwas immediately accused of churlish,childish,and undeniably crass crimes against good taste – what else would one expect from a buddy film about Paul Dano enduring starvation and isolation on a desert isle thanks to the multipronged malleability of Daniel Radcliffe's flatulent,tumescent corpse?Certainly not a Directing Award,which the film's directors Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinhart scooped up nonetheless;together,they go by the monicker Daniels…please make us proud.

Well,the trailer landed this week and it's a doozy.Alternating between the bracing and bizarro,itsRobinson Crusoeby way ofWeekend At Bernie'svisionis sure to split audiences,test their endurance,and leave them wondering if it belongs with the sublime or subpar.Feast your eyes;clutch your stomach.

A few stray thoughts…

  • Surely I can't be the only one clamoring for aMoonrise Kingdombeachside boogie with those two dudes amongst the sand and rocks.I have plenty of quibbles with both of their heavily mannered works the past few years but that almost makes it more enticing.
  • On that same point,their chemistry makes me long for their buddy cop film.Let's call itLove & Mercy.
  • While Radcliffe's face is sort of frozen in that I'm A Conflicted Man!way that featured heavily in the post-puberty Potter films,at least MacGyvering him into a karate chop trebuchet,bulletproof vest,and eternal spring puts it to good use.
  • I know it's the tongue-in-cheek inspirational tune,but the combination of fun house imagery and unconventional companionship warms my heart.
  • If a Paul Dano screams in the woods with no living soul around to hear it,does it still make a sound?

Gotta say,I'm kind of into it.The slapdash inventiveness,bold visuals,and blowing up of the rote genre volleyball hooked me.Does this look like a page one wash or does the audacity strike a chord with you?
