Alejandro González Iñárritu Is DGA Award Champion For The Second Year In A Row


Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu Directors Guild Of America

Alejandro González Iñárritu was part of a landmark moment at the 68th Annual Directors Guild Of America awards when he became the first director ever to win the top prize for two consecutive years, with 'The Revenant' no doubt drawing him ever closer to the big prize at the Academy Awards.

With the Mexican born director landing the Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film award, it also marks a new turn in the diversity debate; it's true he hasn't been shunned by the Oscars as film stars of other races have, but the fact that someone from outside the States has been recognised for his achievements yet again after last year's 'Birdman' is surely a step in the right direction (if you'll pardon the pun).

Leonardo DiCaprio Describes Eating Raw Bison Liver For 'The Revenant'


Leonardo Dicaprio Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

Leonardo Dicaprio has been winning plenty of plaudits for his portrayal of the legendary frontiersman and fur-trapper Hugh Glass in The Revenant, but now he’s opened up about the intense, and often harrowing training he put in to accurately tell that story.

The 41 year old actor described the brutal conditions he endured during filming, including extreme cold, ferocious and changing weather conditions and some pretty horrid meals, to Today’s Savannah Guthrie on Thursday (January 7th). At one point, he eats raw bison liver – something DiCaprio actually ate in real life.

Leonardo DiCaprio On Making 'The Revenant' And Exploring The Legend Of Hugh Glass


Leonardo Dicaprio Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

In The Revenant Leonardo Dicaprio plays 19th century frontiersman Hugh Glass, whose remarkable story has become something of an American legend. But unlike Paul Bunyan, Glass and his story are real and DiCaprio, along with director Alejandro G. Iñárritu, has created a deeply immersive film that tells this remarkable story, proving that fact can sometimes be stranger than fiction.

Leonardo DiCaprio in The RevenantLeonardo DiCaprio as Hugh Glass in The Revenant.

Describing his character DiCaprio said: “Hugh Glass is the stuff of legend by the American campfires, he's a real life Paul Bunyan type of character. A man that survived extreme elements and was left to die by his hunting crew and buried alive and crawled through the entire American wilderness on his own through hundreds of miles, through the dead of winter to seek revenge on the men that had done him wrong.”

Michael Keaton, Emma Stone And Edward Norton Discuss The Filming Of 'Birdman' [Exclusive Featurette]


Michael Keaton Emma Stone Edward Norton Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

When approaching 'Birdman', director Alejandro González Iñárritu decided that to fully get into the mind-set of his main character, his introspective film would be shot as a continuous piece. Or rather, six continuous pieces that could be stitched together in order to resemble one continuous piece. But when confronted with the monumental task of filming large sections of a motion picture in one sitting, there were certain, fairly obvious challenges to follow even if you had, as actor Michael Keaton describes, "an Academy Award-winning cinematographer who is kind of a genius".

Michael Keaton stars as Riggan Thomas in 'Birdman'

Keaton plays the starring role in 'Birdman', one Riggan Thomson - former superhero movie star, currently attempting to reinvigorate his career by writing, directing and starring in his own Broadway debut. "Everyday was one scene," explained Keaton, "and all the actors were petrified constantly." 'Birdman' boasts a fine cast of actors, including Emma Stone, Edward Norton, Naomi Watts and Zach Galifianakis amongst others, so Keaton's statement has even more resonance.

Make No Mistake, 'Birdman' Could Blitz The Oscars In 2015


Michael Keaton Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

In the next couple of months, you're going to read a lot about Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), Alejandro González Iñárritu's masterpiece starring Michael Keaton as a washed up actor attempting to mount a Broadway show. It's released in Canada today (October 24, 2014) though will be a mainstay on the awards circuit before the big one in February.

Michael KeatonMichael Keaton as Riggan in Inarritu's masterpiece 'Birdman'

Keaton plays Riggan, a once-great actor known for his performance as a well-known superhero. Inarritu's comedy-drama unfolds as Riggan prepares for his opening night on Broadway, chronicling his ego backstage and insecure, nervy co-stars - played wonderfully by Ed Norton and Naomi Watts. Zach Galifianakis has a stellar turn as Keaton's voice-of-reason manager, while Emma Stone plays his just-out-of-rehab daughter.

Birdman - Clips


Riggan Thomas (Michael Keeton) is faced with a serious problem. In an attempt to make himself appear relevant in the new world following his role as television superhero Birdman twenty years ago, he has written a stage adaptation of sixty-year-old book. But his problem is, that the actor hired to star in the production has dropped out. The plays producer, Jake (Zach Galifianakis) is in the process of explaining how much trouble they are in, when Lesley (Naomi Watts) explains that her lover, the famous Mike Shiner (Edward Norton) is ready and willing to step into the role.

How A Boozy Night Could Have Led To Michael Keaton's Oscar Winning Role


Michael Keaton Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

Cinema buffs love an on-paper weird casting that turns out to be genius. Quentin Tarantino has the knack for it - Travolta was nowhere, literally nowhere, when cast in Pulp Fiction and Kurt Russell was probably the only actor on the planet who could have pulled off Death Proof, despite his preceding credits reading Dreamer: Inspired By A True Story, Poseidon and family-comedy Sky High.

Michael KeatonMichael Keaton stars as RIggan in 'Birdman'

When Alejandro Inarritu - the man behind Babel, 21 Grams and Biutiful - recruited Michael Keaton for his avant-garde new movie Birdman, eyebrows were raised. Though an incredibly talented actor  and once regarded as one of the most in-demand on the planet, Keaton hasn't delivered a stand-out lead performance since Live From Baghdad, some 12 years ago.

Inarritu's 'Birdman' Is Serious Contender For Oscar's 'Best Picture'


Michael Keaton Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman, featuring a career best performance from Michael Keaton, is now considered a serious contender to win Best Picture at the 74th Academy Awards in February 2015. Keaton plays a once-famous actor known for portraying an iconic superhero who struggles to mount a new Broadway play.

BirdmanMichael Keaton is the favorite to win the Oscar for Best Actor, for 'Birdman'

The film made serious waves on the festival circuit over the summer and gets a limited release in the U.S on Friday (October 10, 2014). Richard Linklater's ingenious movie Boyhood remains the favourite to win cinema's major prize - available at around 2/1 with most bookmakers - though Birdman now shares second-favouritism with Angelina Jolie's Unbroken, starring Jack O'Connell.

Michael Keaton And 'Birdman' Have Oscars In Sight After Telluride Festival


Michael Keaton Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

Birdman conquered at in Venice and although the movie didn't go down quite as well at the Telluride Film Festival, it still got a huge nod of approval from the Colorado crowd and was probably the most accomplished and interesting work on offer - which tells you something of this movie's sheer quality.

Birdman Michael KeatonMichael Keaton in 'Birdman'

It's also a strange movie, given it's come from Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu - the man behind intense dramas Amores Perros, Babel, 21 Grams and Biutiful. Birdman on the other hand is essentially a comedy - a dark comedy, but a comedy nonetheless. Put it this way, should it be nominated for a Golden Globe, it'll find itself in the comedy/musical category.

Birdman - International Trailer


20 years ago, Riggan Thomas (Michael Keaton) played the iconic Birdman - a comic book hero for the big screen. Having watched his career dissolve in the intervening years, Riggan has adapted a Raymond Carver's What We Talk About When We Talk About Love and intends to direct and star in it as part of his big come back. In an attempt to show the world that he still matters, he ends up struggling most of all to prove his worth to both himself and his family. As troubles begin to emerge in the run up to the opening night, Thomas becomes haunted by his early fame, manifesting as a Birdman alter ego.

Riggan Thompson used to be a major movie star having played a much-loved onscreen superhero, Birdman, in his more prolific years. However, he's starting to believe he was just a one trick pony as he struggles desperately to get his Broadway debut underway having just written his first play. Things just don't seem to be going right for Riggin, however, when everything surrounding the production begins to fall apart and he has to cast a younger and cockier actor for the main role - a man he utterly abhors and feels he simply cannot work with. Not only that, but his personal life is also taking a massive blow and he must find a way to reconnect with his family so that, maybe, he can re-discover himself along the way.

Biutiful Review


Very Good
While this gentle drama about a man trying to prepare his family for his own death is plaintive and hopeful, the road to the end is both too long and too packed with distracting sidestories.

Even before his doctor tells him he has terminal cancer, Uxbal (Bardem) is struggling to manage a team of illegal African immigrants who sell fake designer products made by illegal Chinese immigrants in secret factories. He does this to care for his young children (Bouchaib and Estrella), while his bipolar ex Marambra (Alvarez) works as a prostitute. Meanwhile, Uxbal and his brother Tito (Fernandez) are selling the burial plot of the father they never knew. But this only stirs Uxbal's emotions even further.

Rudo & Cursi Review


Excellent
This bright, energetic comedy-drama reunites Garcia and Luna seven years after Y Tu Mama Tambien for a raucous tale of two brothers dealing with fame. The plot is a bit over-structured, but the filmmaking is thoroughly enjoyable.

Tato (Garcia) and his brother Beto (Luna) live in a small town, where Beto, nicknamed Rudo (tough), is married to Tonia (Paz) and has two small kids and Tato dreams of becoming a singing sensation. Then Tato is spotted by a football scout (Francella) and taken to Mexico City to play with the pros. The media nickname him Cursi (fancy). Beto follows soon, and both struggle with the pressures of fame--Tato with a sexy TV-star girlfriend (Mas) and Beto with gambling problems. And they're about to face off in the match of their life.

Rudo Y Cursi Review


Good
Already a massive hit in its home country of Mexico, Carlos Cuarón's Rudo y Cursi is a film about doomed half-brothers, made by exceedingly successful siblings.

The director is the younger sibling of Alfonso Cuarón, director of the excellent Children of Men and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, who serves as producer here in his capacity as one of the heads of Cha Cha Cha Films, along with Guillermo del Toro and Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu. Diego Luna and Gael García Bernal, childhood friends and stars of the elder Cuarón's breakout arthouse hit Y Tu Mamá También, play the plainly-nicknamed titular half-brothers who are picked up out of their jobs as laborers in the banana fields of Jalisco and fashioned into soccer heroes in the would-be Metropolis of Mexico City.

Babel Review


Weak
The Bible gives us the story of the tower of Babel, the magnificently tall structure whose height was deemed offensive and impertinent by God. To punish humanity for its architectural hubris, God then decided to drive a linguistic wedge between the nations of the world, who until then had spoken the same tongue. As fables go, this is a particularly effective one in that it both illustrates a moral -- don't think you're better than God or you shall be struck down with all speed -- and also provides a handy answer to those who wondered why there are so many different languages anyway.

In Babel, directed and co-written by Alejandro González Iñárritu (21 Grams, Amores Perros), a clutch of characters from a range of cultures and walks of life attempt to build a towering film of meaning from coincidence and portent; unfortunately, in the end it is the viewer who is punished for the filmmaker's hubris.

Amores Perros Review


Good
Painted in the colors of rust, Alejandro González Iñarritu's Amores Perros is a hard-edged epic of interconnected lives in the mean streets of Mexico City. This has become a popular trend in independent films such as Wonderland and The Five Senses, not to mention big-budget blockbusters like Traffic. By blending different scenarios, there's the hope of creating a mass collage. It's not as easy to pull off as you might think -- consider the rhythm of your standard daytime soap opera.

The concept of three juxtaposed narratives, at least in the "flavor of the month" sense, can be traced to Quentin Tarantino, as can the gunslinging desperados and pop music that have become the humdrum trademark of Pulp Fiction imitators. Iñarritu is content to simply rehash those familiar elements. Perhaps that's why so much of this Academy Award nominated foreign film comes off like a movie you've seen more than once, translated a Español.
