Eminem's Depressing Music Video For "River" Would Make Even Cupid Stop Believing in Love

The day after Eminem shared a gritty teaser for his "River" music video with Ed Sheeran, which promised fans an "Unhappy Valentine's Day," we have the full-length clip to enjoy. But you know what, "enjoy" might not be the right word here. Eminem and Sheeran clearly aren't fans of Valentine's Day, because the depressing musical accompaniment for their song follows a couple in an abusive relationship, and also features confessional-style interviews from the two musicians. "If you don't have the trust element, you're f*cked," Sheeran says, before Eminem declares that his "personal life is not exactly a highlight reel." Where's Cupid when you need him, right? Despite the, uh, interesting creative choice for "River," both artists have been busy lately. Eminem is ready to drop his new album, and he tugged at everyone's heartstrings when he performed "Walk on Water" on the MTV EMAs stage last November. As for Sheeran,

Last Thursday, Thirty Seconds to Mars premiered their new single, "Dangerous Night," on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert using an advanced robotic camera that moved with the beat of the thumping song and captured the band in striking, cinematic angles.

Eminem Says ‘A F**king Turd Would Have Been’ A Better President Than Donald Trump

  • ET Canada
Eminem’s hatred for U.S. President Donald Trump knows no bounds. The “Walk On Water” rapper had a feeling Trump would win the U.S. Presidential election as soon as he saw the sort of support Trump was generating. “I called it just from the rallies he was having when he first started running,” Eminem told Billboard.

Coachella 2018: Beyonce, The Weeknd and Eminem Headlining -- Plus You'll Get Cardi B in Indio!

The Coachella lineup is here!

The iconic Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival kicked off 2018 by dropping this year's lineup on Twitter early Tuesday evening.

It was already well known that Beyonce would be a headliner. The 36-year-old singer was supposed to take the stage last year, but had to drop out due to her pregnancy and was replaced by Lady Gaga, but she'll be in formation this April, hitting the desert stage on Saturday.

The Weeknd will headline on Friday, and Eminem will close out the festival on Sunday. Fingers crossed this means we'll be seeing Queen Bey and Marshall Mathers perform their single, "Walk on Water," during one of their sets -- because we will not be seeing The Weeknd and Selena Gomez relive their last Coachella weekend.

This year's lineup has a solid mix of indie, alt-rock, R&B and rap performers, plus, as per usual, a few throwback acts. Sza, Kygo, [link

Eminem Is Surrounded by a Bunch of Clones in His "Walk on Water" Music Video

  • BuzzSugar
While everyone was out scrambling to find last-minute holiday gifts, Eminem decided to finally drop his music video for "Walk on Water" from his Revival album on Friday night. Even though Beyoncé is featured on the track, she unfortunately doesn't make an appearance. In the video, the rapper is shown performing in an empty theater, walking on a frozen lake, and in another scene, in a roomful of clones, typing away on typewriters (because that's not creepy at all). But the best part, perhaps, is at the end when the real Slim Shady comes forward. Honestly, you just have to watch the whole thing for any of it to make sense.

"I wanted to see real people" by Anne-Katrin Titze

Richard Gere (Norman Oppenheimer) with Lior Ashkenazi (Micha Eshel) at Lanvin: "It's almost like theater."

Star of Joseph Cedar's Footnote and Norman: The Moderate Rise And Tragic Fall Of A New York Fixer, Lior Ashkenazi, spoke with me on growing up seeing Kirk Douglas, Steve McQueen, and Paul Newman movies with his father, Burt Lancaster in Robert Siodmak's The Crimson Pirate being his first, shooting Eytan Fox's Walk On Water at Berlin's Tempelhof airport, meeting Son Of Saul director László Nemes at the Cannes Film Festival, and performing a silent scene with Richard Gere.

Palestinian Gay Film Festival Breaks Down Barriers

Palestinian Gay Film Festival Breaks Down Barriers
It was an Lgbt-themed film festival held outside the borders of Palestine, featuring a number of works by directors who were neither gay nor Palestinian. But the first-ever Kooz Queer fest, which had a modest bow earlier this month in the northern Israeli city of Haifa, made little ripples of history in its own right. The tiny three-day fest, established by grassroots org Aswat-Palestinian Gay Women, and held across a handful of Haifa coffee shops and art venues, opened up a dialogue about the overlaps of occupation and sexuality; and of the borders of individual identity in the context of an uncertain international existence.

The goal of the fest: to provide a platform for home-grown, gay-themed films at a time when most Lgbt Palestinians still feel a need to stay closeted.

Films made by, and about, gay Palestinians are few and far between. But the team at Aswat, inspired by

Steve Tisch’s $10 Million Donation to Tel Aviv U. Elevates School

Steve Tisch’s $10 Million Donation to Tel Aviv U. Elevates School
Nyu, USC, UCLA — and now Tau.

Just like those well-regarded U.S. film schools, the Tel Aviv U. School of Film and Television has developed its own brand of excellence, with successful alumni such as Gideon Raff (“Homeland”), Hagai Levi (“The Affair”), Ari Folman (“Waltz With Bashir”) and Avi Nir (CEO of top shingle Keshet), all heavyweights of the Israeli film and television industry, and known for their crossover success into the American market.

And now Tel Aviv U. has something else that’s similar to its well-funded brethren — an endowment from a Holly-wood benefactor.

Last month, producer Steve Tisch (“Forrest Gump,” “The Equalizer”) donated $10 million to the school — funding that will completely transform the campus and, Tisch hopes, further position Israeli film and television projects in the international arena.

The gift wasn’t a spur-of-the-moment decision. Last year, Tisch traveled to Tel Aviv, having been invited to serve as

Cinema Paradiso, Persepolis directors join Berlin, I Love You
Directors of Oh Boy, Persepolis and Cinema Paradiso among those to join omnibus film; Ai Weiwei shooting remotely this weekend from Beijing.

Jan Ole Gerster (Oh Boy), Marjane Satrapi (Persepolis), Giuseppe Tornatore (Cinema Pardiso) and Oren Moverman (The Messenger) are among the filmmakers attached to direct episodes for the Berlin I Love You omnibus film.

Chinese artist Ai Weiwei will shoot his eight-minute segment via distance directing from Beijing this weekend.

Speaking by Skype from his studio in Beijing, the world renowned artist explained that his contribution is “based on the experiences of a newcomer - my son Ai Lao - coming to Berlin [the six-year-old and his mother have been living there for the past six months] and the way we communicate these days through virtual digital reality”.

“I am not using the film to help myself,” he stressed. “It is more about people being apart, a similar condition for so many in the world because of wars, political or economic reasons. But they can still communicate through art, film

NewFest 2014: Rubber, Leather, Hookers, and Cupcakes

If you still have an affinity for books, there can be few more choice summer reads than Edmund White's 2005 autobiography, My Lives. Divided into nonlinear sections devoted to his relationships with his parents, his hustlers, and his female entanglements, there's also a chapter entitled "My Europe." Herein White notes how while in the Paris of the 1980s, he became aware that petite green beans are tastier than their larger cousins. He also recounts how the social theorist Michel Foucault, a pal of his, noted that while "'gay philosophy' and 'gay paintings' were meaningless notions...writing gay fiction was legitimate since it enabled us to imagine how gay men should live together."

Foucault apparently "felt that relationships between gay men were tenuous, undefined, still to be invented, and that gay fiction was the place where a vision of association could be worked out in concrete detail."

The same could be said of Lgbt cinema,

Lior Ashkenazi: International Star You Need to Know

Lior Ashkenazi: International Star You Need to Know
Claim To Fame

When Israelis think of a sexy male star, chances are they are thinking of Lior Ashkenazi. At 43, he has been on the scene for only a decade, landing his breakthrough role in Dover Koshashvili’s 2001 “Late Marriage” (including a now-famous nine-minute sex scene), after paying his dues on the theater circuit. Eytan Fox’s 2004 “Walk on Water” came next, in which his role as a beautiful but broken Mossad agent secured Ashkenazi his monopoly on cinematic eros.

(From the pages of the April 16 issue of Variety.)

The Language(S) Of Lior

For “Late Marriage,” Ashkenazi had to speak Georgian, so he memorized his lines phonetically. In “Hello, Goodbye” with Gerard Depardieu, he did the same thing with French. Romance languages come easily: He was raised by Turkish immigrants who spoke to him in Ladino, the Spanish-Jewish dialect that flourished among Spanish Jews after the Inquisition.

Gay Israelis vs. Unkosher Twin Witch-slayers

Yossi

Eytan Fox's superb sequel to his award-winning love story, Yossi & Jagger (2002), has finally arrived. The original told of two Israeli soldiers situated on the Lebanese border, whose clandestine love affair was struggling to survive in a friendly yet homophobic atmosphere. Jagger, who was a little more out there, did his darnedest to loosen up Yossi (Ohad Knoller), begging him to quit the army and live with him in a more tolerant ambiance such as the one Tel Aviv could furnish. The rosy vision unsettled Yossi, but not for long. Jagger was killed in an ambush - - and buried as a brave heterosexual, at least in the eyes of his parents and his compatriots.

Now jump a decade ahead. Dr. Yossi Hoffman is a highly respected cardiologist, yet a lonely, slightly out-of-shape homosexual. A workaholic, he refuses to take vacations, and his free evenings are neatly eviscerated by TV shows with laugh tracks.

Review: ‘Yossi’ is a Slow Burn Character Study That Sticks With You

A lovingly rendered slow burn of a character study, Yossi impresses its message upon viewers with a quiet fortitude. In this sequel to Yossi & Jagger, we find Yossi (Ohad Knoller), a 34-year old heart surgeon in Tel Aviv, still mourning the loss of Jagger, his lover from a decade prior. A former fellow officer in the Israeli Defense Force. More than both a little oversensitive and a little overweight, Yossi’s obsessive inability to break from his state of grief leads him to an unending cycle of malaise. Dalliances in outdated pornography, junk food binges, and Internet dating prove to be an unsurprisingly poor substitute for love. Unsure of how to navigate his psychical shortcomings in the dating sphere, he posts photos of his healthier, younger self so as not to scare off potential suitors on dating sites. As Yossi is Eytan Fox’s (The Bubble, Walk on Water) touching follow-up to the controversial Israeli film illustrating

Popcorn Preview: Footnote

Film: Footnote (2011) Cast includes: Lior Ashkenazi (Walk on Water), Shlomo Bar-Abe (Witness in the War Zone) Writer/Director: Joseph Cedar (Beaufort) Genre: Comedy | Drama | Satire (103 minutes) Hebrew with subtitles It's the "most difficult day in Professor Eliezer Shkolnik's life." Today his son, Professor Uriel Shkolnik, is being inducted into Israel's National Academy. It's obviously a family of academic over-achievers, who inhabit a world of scholars, measuring their self-worth by the academic organizations they've been invited to join, the prizes they've won and the scholarly works they've published. So why is it such a difficult day for Eliezer Shkolnik? Well, "there are a few things worth knowing about Shkolnik (father)." On the brink of publishing the findings of 30 years worth of Talmudic research, his efforts were undermined and rendered worthless by that scoundrel, Grossman. Today, all Shkolnik (father) can boast is an obscure footnote citing him in someone else's research paper.
