Movie Shot On iPhone, Snuck Out Of Iran In A Cake, Will Screen In The US

I am kind of fascinated by the movie “This Is Not A Film,” which screened at the Toronto Film Festival and has now been picked up for release in the US. The film is by Iranian director Jafar Panahi, who has been sentenced to six years in jail for allegedly making “propaganda against the Islamic Republic” and banned from filmmaking for 20 years. And so he made “This Is Not A Film” while under house arrest. It’s a 75-minute look at a day in his life as he tried to appeal his verdict. It was shot on an iPhone by a friend and, for its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, the movie had to be smuggled out of the country in a cake. Panahi has serious commitment to his craft and I think it’s pretty amazing that audiences will get to see this work. I only hope it doesn’t incur him graver punishment.

“Martha Marcy May Marlene”: Crazy Title, Crazy-Looking Movie


I love a trippy psychological thriller full of raw talent even more than I like mint chip ice cream on a hot September day, and that’s saying a lot. And in this regard, the upcoming film “Martha Marcy May Marlene” looks right up my alley. I’m ready to gobble it down.

The film stars Elizabeth Olsen, younger sister to the Olsen twins Mary-Kate and Ashley, and she looks to be pretty mesmerizing is this role. Olsen plays Martha, and the film follows Martha’s schizophrenic narrative between past and present — past being the time she recently spent living on a farm in an abusive cult and present immediately following her escape from the brutal cult, living with her sister and brother-in-law, who know nothing of her time with the cult, and trying to reconnect in normalcy and come to terms with the terrifying things that happened to her on the farm.

Christina Hendricks Really, Really Wants To Be Wonder Woman

“I grew up on the TV show, and I had Wonder Woman Underoos, and my brother had a Wonder Woman doll — sorry, Aaron, you’re exposed. And Nicolas said, when we were on set, ‘I want you to be Wonder Woman.’ And I think he is such an extraordinary and exceptional director, that if he asked me to do it, I would do it in a heartbeat … Hopefully the stars would align. It would be really fun. It would be cool, wouldn’t it? I’d get to kick ass.”

Christina Hendricks talks to NYMag.com about how Nicolas Winding Refn, her director for “Drive,” has said that he wants to direct a reboot of “Wonder Woman” with her in the lead role. I know David E. Kelley’s re-imagining of the classic, starring Adrienne Palicki, barely got off the ground. But even though this project hasn’t even been greenlit yet, can I buy tickets now? It sounds awesome.

My Boyfriend Joseph Gordon-Levitt Really Knows How To Ride A Bike


Riding a fixed gear (aka no brake) bike in the city is something of a point of pride for many too-cool-for-school city bicyclists. I personally think it’s stupid and asking to die, but whatever. In any case, my famous boyfriend, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, plays a fixed-gear-riding bike messenger in the new movie “Premium Rush,” running from the cops as he tries to deliver a mysterious envelope. Truthfully, this movie looks kind of terrible. But will I see it? I have to support my fake boyfriend, don’t I? [NYMag] Keep reading »

Who Should Be Liz Lemon’s Love Interest?

Perhaps this will be the season that Liz Lemon finds love? “30 Rock” has put out a casting call for a new love interest, and it certainly has our mental gears turning. On the show, Tina Fey‘s character has been wooed (or tried to woo) Dean Winters, Jason Sudeikis, Matt Damon, and Jon Hamm. Who could possibly be next in that trajectory? The show is looking for an unknown between the ages of 36 and 40, who can embody “California-bred with liberal values and a youthful innocence.” But we don’t want to limit ourselves just to that. After the jump, who we’d like to see get the part. Keep reading »
