Dear Academy: Do The Right Thing And Vote For ‘The Salesman’...

Let’s start off with the easy stuff, first.  Maren Ade’s “Toni Erdmann” should have won the Palme d’Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. It also should have won the Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film over “Elle,” another film I adore. It’s a crime Ade missed out on a Best Original Screenplay […]

6 Reasons Why “Toni Erdmann” Is The Best Foreign Language Film...

Maren Ade’s Toni Erdmann is one of those brilliant movies that you have to see for yourself in order to understand where all of the talk about it has been coming from – and once you do, you’ll realise what ‘the fuss’ was all about. On the surface, Toni Erdmann is a relatable story of… Read more »

Bill Murray Explains How He Lost The Lead Role In The...

By his own admission, Bill Murray isn’t the easiest guy to get on the phone for a gig, and he generally doesn’t want to work too hard if he doesn’t have to. It must be a sweet life, but that laissez faire attitude means that sometimes, opportunity knocks, but he misses the call. And that’s […]

‘Toni Erdmann’ Team Won’t Be Involved In The Remake

Conceptually speaking, the filmmakers behind “Toni Erdmann” had already expressed they were cool with an American remake, even before the huge news broke that Jack Nicholson and Kristen Wiig would star in the redo. “[A remake would] not affect the original, you can shorten the film and make a pure comedy out of [it].

Director Maren Ade Open To American Remake Of ‘Toni Erdmann’

Stretching to nearly three hours long, featuring a sex scene of sorts that ends up with ejaculation on a French pastry, a climatic moment involving a rousing rendition of a Whitney Houston song, and a plot that revolves both around globalization and a quirky father/daughter tale, “Toni Erdmann” is exactly the kind of movie Hollywood […]

Jessica Kiang’s Top 20 Films Of 2016

I don’t think I’m the only person to have wondered about the usefulness of watching, discussing and writing about film — or any art — when it feels like outside the theater, the sky is falling. Great chunks of catastrophe are raining down from the heavens and I’m pondering crucial issues like the mythology of […]

You’ll Be Thankful For The Weirdos In Your Life After Watching...

This is a reprint of our review from the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.
