Film News: ‘Call Me By Your Name’ Tops Chicago Film Critics Association’s Nominations for 2017

Chicago – The eclectic coming-of-age love story, “Call Me By Your Name” topped the nominations list with eight for the 2017 Chicago Film Critics Association (Cfca) Film Awards, to be announced on Wednesday, December 13th. Director Luca Guadagnino’s adaptation of Andre Aciman’s novel garnered nods for Best Picture, Guadagnino for Best Director, and acting noms for Armie Hammer, Michael Stuhlbarg and Timothee Chalamet.

The rest of the field for Best Picture has a variety of genres and themes. Christopher Nolan’s epic “Dunkirk” shares the stage with Greta Gerwig’s intent autobiographical “Lady Bird,” Guillermo Del Toro’s magical “The Shape of Water” and the strange-but-heralded “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” The symbolic horror of “Get Out” got first time director Jordan Peele a nomination (joining first timer Greta Gerwig), the late Harry Dean Stanton was recognized for Best Actor in “Lucky,” and Willem Dafoe got a Best Supporting Actor nomination for “The Florida Project.

Chicago Film Critics Association champion Call Me By Your Name with 2017 award nominations

Critical darlings and awards favorites Call Me By Your Name and The Shape of Water proved to be heavy hitters within the Chicago Film Critics Association (of which yours truly is a fresh, honorary member). The former received eight nominations while the latter received seven. Meanwhile, in third place was a three-way tie between Lady Bird, Dunkirk, and Phantom Thread, each with six nominations apiece.

There were also some surprises in store, as Raw (an artistically disturbing French cannibal horror feature seemingly forgotten about during this awards season, and disappointingly so as it’s one of the most overlooked and flat-out best films of the year) managed to secure nominations in both Best Foreign Language Film and Most Promising Filmmaker (a conversation Julia Ducournau definitely deserves to be in alongside popular hopefuls Greta Gerwig and Jordan Peele). Beloved character actor Harry Dean Stanton (most of you probably remember him as

Interview: John Carroll Lynch

John Carroll Lynch talks about his directorial debut Lucky, the final film of Harry Dean Stanton.

The BFI London Film Festival 2017 presented Lucky by director John Carroll Lynch. Lucky was the last film of Harry Dean Stanton, who died shortly before the screening. The film is, consciously or not, a tribute to Harry Dean, in one of the most candid, brave, quiet, simple, and iconic roles of a career that spanned seven decades.

It is less of a narrative than tag-team philosophising on mortality and existence, as Lucky visits his doctor, played by Ed Begley, Jr., meets a war veteran played by Tom Skerritt in a diner (they last met on film in the lunch room of the Nostromo in Alien), and drinks with various patrons at the Stagecoach Saloon and Grill, including David Lynch, who holds forth on the existential conundrum of his Awol tortoise. Despite the sense of

‘Channel Zero: No-End House’ Creator Nick Antosca On His Bleaker Original Ending and Villains Who Manipulate Women
[Editor’s Note: The following interview contains spoilers for the ending of “Channel Zero: No-End House.”]

If you’re still thinking about the finale of the Syfy series “Channel Zero: No-End House” by this time in 2018, not only has series creator and writer Nick Antosca done his job, he’s made the kind of show of which he’s a fan.

“There’s a particular trap you can fall into in telling a horror story where you prioritize in-the-moment scares over character development and psychological depth. It’s more important that the character have a complete and fulfilling journey than you jump. The kind of horror I love is the kind that unsettles me a year after I saw it, when I think about it,” Antosca said in a recent interview with IndieWire.

For him, part of making a more dynamic approach to the No-End House story culminated with The Father, the being that takes on the appearance of Margot’s (Amy Forsyth

Classics Film Fest Unspools in Colombia (Exclusive)

Classics Film Fest Unspools in Colombia (Exclusive)
With Sean Baker, Trey Edwards, Chris Newman, Ed Lachman, Peter Webber and Mike Hausman among its board members, a new film festival of classic films will unspool from Nov. 10 -13 in Bogota, Colombia.

Dubbed The Classics – Festival of the Films That Will Live Forever, the new film fest is founded by producer Ivonne Torres and Juan Carvajal, co-founder and artistic director of the three-year old Bogota Independent Film Festival, IndieBo.

Buoyed by sell-out crowds at IndieBo last July when the festival screened restored classics via a new pact with Martin Scorsese’s Film Foundation, Carvajal said: “I saw how these movie gems – rescued and restored with the support of the Film Foundation – deserved nothing better than to be enjoyed where they belong: the big screen.”

For many moviegoers in Bogota, it was the first time to see such classics as Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s “All About Eve,” Elia Kazan’s “On the Waterfront,” and [link=nm

‘Channel Zero: No-End House’ Is a Bingeworthy Horror Mindtrip That’s Helping Shape TV’s Brand New Rules
Wednesday night’s installment of “Channel Zero: No-End House” was an episode-length dose of that universal feeling that comes with watching a piece of finely tuned horror: the tiny voice inside (or outside) that screams, “No! Don’t do it!” As with all on-screen tales of terror, the Syfy anthology series has mined plenty of moments like this in its second season, themed around the all-encompassing psychological consequences of an insidious haunted house. But while “The Damage” was a relative breather in the scope of what’s come before it, “No-End House” as a whole remains an ambitious series that’s building on the innovations of TV’s latest narrative wave.

Lucky – Review

Harry Dean Stanton says farewell in the movie Lucky, which turned out to be the beloved actor’s last. Not much happens in Lucky and its slow, unhurried style may not appeal to everyone, but this movie has a big heart and a moving performance by Stanton that acts as a summary of his long and extraordinary career.

Lucky follows Lucky (Stanton) and his friends and neighbors who live in the dusty desert town of Cave Creek, Arizona. Lucky is 90 years old but fiercely independent, rejecting any idea of assisted living. The film follows his routines over a few days of his life. Lucky smokes, takes a sponge bath, gets dressed, listens to Spanish-language music, does yoga, and smokes some more. Lucky’s interactions with others consists of eating at a diner run by his friend Joe (Barry Shabaka Henley) where he does his crossword puzzles, and a daily stop at the local watering hole.

John Carroll Lynch on Directing ‘Lucky’, Working with Harry Dean Stanton, and Returning to ‘Ahs’

Directed by John Carroll Lynch, Lucky is a poignant and powerful look at a 90-year-old man (beautifully played by the late Harry Dean Stanton) and the life he lives in his off-the-map desert town. As he finds himself at the edge of mortality, he is still fiercely independent while also seeking the human connection that we all need until our final moments. It is a film worth seeking out and it is a performance that will likely be thought of as one of the actor’s best. During this 1-on-1 phone interview with Collider, …

Lff 2017: ‘Lucky’ Review: Dir. John Carroll Lynch (2017)

Lucky review: Respected character actor John Carroll Lynch makes his directorial debut with this masterstroke in movie making and acting, particularly from its leading man; Harry Dean Stanton in one of his final roles. Lucky review

Lucky review by Paul Heath.

Making his directorial debut with this modest, character driven indie is celebrated actor John Caroll Lynch (Fargo, Jackie), a veteran of the big and small screen with over one hundred credits to his name, spanning a three-decade career.

Looking around the web, Lucky’s synopsis is described using just a few words; ‘the spiritual journey of a ninety-old atheist’. Of course, there’s a lot more to this very intricate, relatively short insight into the title character’s very long life, as he goes about his daily routines in a small desert town. Written by Logan Sparks and Drago Sumonja, Lucky has sadly become more known as one the last films to feature,

61st BFI London Film Festival Review – Lucky (2017)

Lucky, 2017.

Directed by John Carroll Lynch

Starring Harry Dean Stanton, David Lynch, Barry Shabaka Henley, Beth Grant, and Tom Skerritt.

Synopsis:

The spiritual journey of a ninety-year-old atheist.

Late, lamented Hollywood legend Harry Dean Stanton had the sort of face the camera practically keeled over for. Less a visage than an ordnance survey map of Hollywood history, Dean Stanton’s features were testament to his extraordinary 60 year career as a ubiquitous, scene-stealing support player in the likes of Alien and Repo Man.

Small wonder that debut director John Carroll Lynch makes such sublime use of the actor’s wonderfully weathered features in his lyrical small town drama Lucky. Indeed, Stanton’s face practically is the entire story, competing with the sun-baked, cactus-strewn landscapes for sheer ruggedness.

Named after Stanton’s central character, Lucky is that rare movie that gifts the actor a juicy lead role, comparable to his iconic desert-trekking loner in Wim Wenders’ Paris,

‘Lucky’ Review: A Fitting Swan Song for Harry Dean Stanton

The late Harry Dean Stanton was the ultimate character actor. He's given us 60-plus years of acting credits across film and television from cameos to supporting roles, but rarely the full blown lead. His biggest role, in terms of screen time, was Wim Wenders' lyrical Paris, Texas about a man who seeks atonement for his sins against his wife and child by wandering the desert completely alone sickened to temporary muteness at what he allowed himself to become. John Carroll Lynch, a character actor in his own right (he's still "not the Zodiac" and if he was …
