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.

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.

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.

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.

21 Grams Review


Extraordinary
Following the funeral of his son-in-law, a father empathizes with his daughter by relating how he moved past the death of his wife, her mother. He reassures her that in spite of the hard times ahead, "life goes on." She retorts, "That's a lie. Life doesn't go on."

Welcome to everyone's life. Death is a ubiquitous occurrence, dumped upon us daily by CNN and more occasionally - yet still inevitably - in our own intimate moments. But when death strikes our lives, it invariably shatters our psyches and changes us for the darker, no matter how we try to prepare to accept it.

Nine Lives Review


Weak
A well-cast compilation film suffocating on its own self-importance, Nine Lives aims to tie together nine vastly different stories, but ends up telling hardly any of them well. The conceit of writer/director Rodrigo Garcia is to take nine vignettes, each centered around a different woman (usually in desperate circumstances), and give us a brief glimpse into her life before cutting away to the next one, while stringing a few connecting threads between them all. To ensure that he's not playing favorites, each piece is done in one single Steadicam shot and kept to only nine or ten minutes in length. A minor character from one vignette becomes a major player later on, or vice versa. As in literature, anthology works like this are a hit-and-miss affair, and in this case the misses far outnumber the ones that connect.

Nine Lives opens strong on Sandra (Elpidia Carrillo), an imprisoned mother. Mopping up a floor, she's threatened by fellow prisoners, and harassed by a guard (Miguel Sandoval) who's convinced she can give him information. Everyone tells Sandra she's not going to make it, but you think she just might be able to, hunkering down turtle-like and just plowing through the rest of her sentence. But then her daughter visits, and the phone doesn't work, sending Sandra into a stunning explosion of rage, like a mother bear kept from her cub. It's a short, unrelentingly powerful story, and done by itself it would stand as a sublime little tragedy. The same goes for the final piece, in which Glenn Close and Dakota Fanning (hardly a better match could be imagined) visit a cemetery and talk with sublime ease about not much at all. But then comes the rest of the film in between.

11'09''01 - September 11 Review


Good
Simple premise: Eleven filmmakers each get 11 minutes to put their thoughts about September 11, 2001 into film. Documentaries about 9/11 have certainly been made to date -- I'd be surprised if less than a dozen had been released -- and this very format has even been done before too (see our review of Underground Zero).

What September 11 has that the other films don't is star power and international perspective. The 11 directors who submit work here represent a walk of fame of international cinema. Though I'm not familiar with the work of Samira Makhmalbaf (Iran) or Idrissa Ouedraogo (Burkina-Faso), to name a few, names like Penn, Lelouch, Iñárritu, Nair, and Loach represent some major names.
