    Awards Season Backlash—Already!

    Every year, it seems, some good movies suffer from what I call Awards Season Backlash. Because the season started earlier than usual this year—and intensified when the New York Film Critics decided to vote right after Thanksgiving—the bounce-back has already begun, I’m sorry to say...

    Carey Mulligan Talks The Ugliness & Effortlessness Of Shooting Sex-Addiction Film 'Shame'

    Since giving her breakthrough performance in 2009’s “An Education,” Carey Mulligan has become well-known to audiences for playing winsome, beautiful characters who convey intelligence and vulnerability in equal measures. But in Steve McQueen’s searing new drama “Shame,&...

    Michael Fassbender in Overhyped "Shame"

    Steve McQueen’s dark-and-richly-photographed, descent-into-hell Shame is, I suspect, exactly the film he wanted to make, and I respect and admire him for that. But it arrives with such hyperbolic praise, you might want to lower your expectations. The film is likely to leave viewers unsatisfied...

    Cross-Post: Oscars 2011: Single Fathers and the Vanishing Mothers

    One of the threads running through this year’s Oscar race is the single father who must pull things together for the sake of his kids.  This is especially poignant in three films – Moneyball, The Descendants and We Bought a Zoo.  It’s even funnier that it happens to be Ge...

    U.S. Trailer & New Clip For NC-17 Rated 'Shame' Starring Michael Fassbender

    The domestic trailer for "Shame" has arrived, and if you're a keen follower of this film, you'll realize this trailer is pretty much identical to the the U.K. version you've already seen. But the point is spreading the word for a controversial sexual drama that's been stamped with the dreaded NC-17 ...

    Carey Mulligan Joins Coens' 'Inside Llewyn Davis' & Spike Jonze's New Film Starring Joaquin Phoenix

    It's hard to believe that just two years ago the world was waking up to Carey Mulligan. The actress seemed to come out of nowhere with her turn in Lone Scherfig's "An Education," and rather than try and go for big paydays in tentpole or franchise movies, Mulligan has wisely opted to work with filmmakers instead. Jim Sheridan ("Brothers"), Oliver Stone ("Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps"), Mark Romanek ("Never Let Me Go"), Nicolas Winding Refn ("Drive") and Steve McQueen ("Shame") now grace her filmography, with Baz Luhrmann being added this fall as she shoots "The Great Gatsby." And Mulligan isn't stopping there, as Variety report, she's addin...

    NYFF: Michael Fassbender Hopes For A 'De Niro/Scorsese' Relationship With Director Steve McQueen

    And Nine More Things We Learned About 'Shame' From New York Film Festival ScreeningIt's no surprise considering how spectacularly good his feature debut "Hunger" was, but Steve McQueen's "Shame" has marched through Venice, Telluride and Toronto, winning more and more fans along the way. And while there's a few months yet to come, we're almost certain that it'll appear high up on a number of year-end lists of Playlist staffers come the end of 2011. Reteaming the British director with his "Hunger" star Michael Fassbender, along with "An Education" Oscar-nominee Carey Mulligan, it's an immaculately made, firmly controlled, no-holds-barred look a...

    The Road To 'Drive': The Films Of Nicolas Winding Refn

    After months of build-up, moviegoers finally got a look at "Drive," the much-acclaimed crime thriller by Nicolas Winding Refn, this weekend. With a C- Cinemascore (whatever that's worth), it's clearly a divisive picture, but there's been enough passion spent on the film, here and elsewhere, to suggest that plenty of discerning cinephiles have fallen for it in the way that several Playlist staffers have in recent weeks. And if you were one of them, Refn might have been a new face for you; the director has been active for fifteen years now, but only really started to come to attention of U.S. film fans in the last few years (or arguably, months...
