David Lynch, Jordan Peele, Tiffany Haddish, and More Creators Tell IndieWire What Drove Them in 2017

David Lynch, Jordan Peele, Tiffany Haddish, and More Creators Tell IndieWire What Drove Them in 2017
Words have always had great power, but over the course of the last year — a one of massive change and upheaval in Hollywood and the rest of the world — that old chestnut has never seemed more prescient. 2017 saw the rise of believing those who speak out, even if it hurts to hear, and plenty of the industry’s biggest voices had plenty to say. We talk to a lot of Hollywood’s brightest talents, about the projects which have inspired them most and the industry which at times supports, and at times hinders, their efforts to make their best work.

As individuals, we’re often blown away by their insights; in gathering them together, we end up with a portrait of a community of artists and creators who love their art and their industry, for better and for worse, and refuse to keep quiet about it.

Iffam: Festival Jurors Put Focus on Asian Experience

Iffam: Festival Jurors Put Focus on Asian Experience
Asia was understandably the focus of the competition jury at the debut of the 2nd International Film Festival and Awards Macao (Iffam). Addressing a press conference chaired by Iffam artistic director Mike Goodridge, jury president, French filmmaker Laurent Cantet said that he walked for a few hours once he reached Macau, trying unsuccessfully to get lost.

“I like to film away from my country,” said Cantet, winner of the 2008 Palme d’Or for “The Class.” “The distance it gives to your point of view is interesting.” Cantet has filmed in Cuba, the Dominican Republic and Corsica, besides his native France.

Singaporean filmmaker, Royston Tan (“15: The Movie,” “881”) suggested that the establishment of a residency program in Macau would help filmmakers from around the world to get to know the place and the culture.

British author Lawrence Osborne, whose 2014 novel “The Ballad of a Small Player” is set in the casinos of Macau, is fascinated

‘Psych: The Movie’: James Roday and Steve Franks on Rewarding the Fans, Bringing Back John Cena, and What Might Be Next

‘Psych: The Movie’: James Roday and Steve Franks on Rewarding the Fans, Bringing Back John Cena, and What Might Be Next
The USA Network drama “Psych” has been off the air for a few years, but the love that its fans (Aka “Psych-os”) have for the show is still intense. “We sort of had this contract with our fans,” star James Roday told IndieWire, “that we’re pretty sure we know what you like, and we promise to give you that 85 percent of the time, if you let us have 15 percent to let us do things that make us giggle, too. And that became what ‘Psych’ was.”

It’s an attitude that still forms the foundation of the series, which returns to television Thursday for a feature-length adventure (timed to the holidays) featuring the beloved characters. The series, which premiered in 2006, followed fake psychic detective Shawn Spencer (Roday) and his best friend Gus (Dulé Hill) as they solved all manner of crimes. Roday and Hill’s natural chemistry, as well

The most high falutin’ best of the year list always belongs to Cahiers du Cinema who, when they aren’t going hardcore arthouse, are making bonkers mainstream selections. True to form, they’ve lived up to their reputation in 2017.

David Lynch‘s “Twin Peaks: The Return” has topped the list, which will once again stoke the Film Twitter fire and debate over, What is cinema? It’s a boring conversation and argument, so I’ll leave that to the turtlenecks and clove cigarette smokers to figure out.

Cahiers du cinéma’s Top 10 Films of 2017 Includes ‘Twin Peaks: The Return,’ ‘Split,’ and ‘Good Time’

Established in the 1950s by André Bazin, Joseph-Marie Lo Duca, and Jacques Doniol-Valcroze, France’s Cahiers du cinéma has long been a bastion for quality film criticism. Year after year their rundown of the top films usually ignites a response, and we doubt 2017 will be any different — mostly notably when it comes to their top “film,” and perhaps a few other inclusions.

They’ve released their latest list, which includes a few films that won’t get a U.S. release until 2018 (Jeannette, The Day After, Lover for a Day). Also among the selections are some of this year’s finest films, Get Out and Good Time, as well as David Lynch’s 18-hour Twin Peaks: The Return, which also made Sight & Sound’s poll. Since they got a release in France this year, Certain Women, Jackie, and Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk also made the cut.

Sight & Sound Names ‘Get Out’ and ‘Twin Peaks: The Return’ the Best Films of 2017

Sight & Sound Names ‘Get Out’ and ‘Twin Peaks: The Return’ the Best Films of 2017
Sight & Sound has released its list of the best movies of 2017, and the rundown is causing quite a stir online as David Lynch’s limited series “Twin Peaks: The Return” nearly topped the list in the #2 position. The debate as to whether or not the “Twin Peaks” revival counts as film or television has been raging ever since Lynch himself said he viewed the series as an 18-hour movie. The Sight & Sound list is the first time “Twin Peaks” has appeared on a “best-of-the-year” list.

Jordan Peele’s “Get Out” topped the Sight & Sound poll in the #1 position. IndieWire’s Eric Kohn also named the social thriller the best film of 2017 earlier this week. Other movies recognized by Sight & Sound include “Personal Shopper,” “Dunkirk,” “The Florida Project,” “A Ghost Story,” and “Mudbound.” The full list is below

‘Get Out’ and ‘Twin Peaks: The Return’ Lead Sight & Sound’s Best Films of 2017 Poll

The best in 2017 polls and lists continue today with one of the most respected organizations, Sight & Sound. After polling over 180 critics from around the world, Jordan Peele’s Get Out landed in the top spot while close behind, with some controversy, is David Lynch and Mark Frost’s 18-part Showtime series Twin Peaks (which, fittingly, arrives on Blu-ray today).

Although the man who directed every episode has insisted his monumental undertaking is a film from the beginning, we imagine some may not agree with the distinction. Yet, three-plus decades later, many would classify Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s 14-part, 931-minute miniseries Berlin Alexanderplatz as a film, so perhaps we just need some more distance.

The excellent list also features Call Me by Your Name, Good Time, A Ghost Story, mother!, and Personal Shopper, as well as a handful of stellar 2018 U.S. releases (Zama, Western, You Were Never Really Here) and some 2016 U.

Happy!'s Christopher Meloni and Patrick Fischler Dish and Tell About That Premiere Scene and More

Happy!'s Christopher Meloni and Patrick Fischler Dish and Tell About That Premiere Scene and More
“Can I curse?” asks Christopher Meloni. Although he and Happy! co-star Patrick Fischler are discussing their far-far-out new Syfy series on the TVLine Podcast, he needs a four-letter word to describe his reaction to the pilot script. Which was? “What the f— did I just read?”

We don’t blame him. In the outrageous dramedy, Meloni is Nick Sax, a hitman whose sidekick is the titular unicorn; Fischler, Sax’s maniacal nemesis Smoothie, who — if you’ve seen the eye-popping trailer, you know — intends to remove Sax’s manhood in exceedingly painful fashion. When they shot that massive confrontation for the premiere (Wednesday,

Recommended New Books on Filmmaking: ‘Blade Runner 2049,’ Francis Ford Coppola, David Bowie & More

It’s been a stellar year of cinema and pop culture-themed books, and the texts (and Blu-rays) in this round-up all make fine gifts. One additional book that should be on your year-end list is Mark Frost’s Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier. It’s a satisfying companion to season three of Peaks, not to mention Frost’s own Secret History of Twin Peaks. So be sure to check out Nick Newman’s recent interview with the Peaks co-creator.

Live Cinema and Its Techniques by Francis Ford Coppola (Liveright)

The legendary Francis Ford Coppola has spoken of “live cinema” with regularity over the years, specifically with respect to 1981’s One From the Heart. That film, a box office flop now held in some regard, is an essential part of Live Cinema and Its Techniques, a fascinating new book authored by Coppola himself. The lessons from that experience, Coppola says,

'Twin Peaks': David Lynch Brings 'The Return's' Scariest Moment to Life (Exclusive Video)

"Gotta light?"

Anyone who watched David Lynch and Mark Frost's Twin Peaks: The Return will never forget those chilling words, spat forth with cold-hearted charcoal menace from the Abraham Lincoln look-alike known as the Woodsman. And that wasn't even the most stunning moment of the series, let alone the hour from which it was spawned: "Part 8," the unforgettable surrealist nightmare trip through nuclear hell and back, often wordlessly expanding the sprawling mythology first launched in Lynch and Frost's series little more than 25 years ago.
