Movie Review – Never Look Away (2018)

Never Look Away, 2018.

Written and Directed by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck.

Starring Tom Schilling, Sebastian Koch, Paula Beer, Saskia Rosendahl, Oliver Masucci, Lars Eidinger, Florian Bartholomäi, Hanno Koffler, Rainer Bock, Ulrike C. Tscharre, Pit Bukowski, Ben Becker, Ina Weisse, Evgeniy Sidikhin, Johanna Gastdorf, Johannes Allmayer, Jörg Schüttauf, Stefan Mehren, Mark Zak, Bastian Trost, Hans-Uwe Bauer, Jeanette Hain, Hinnerk Schönemann, Martin Bruchman, David Schütter, Andreas Nickl, Cai Cohrs, Franz Pätzold, and Jonas Dassler.

Synopsis:

German artist Kurt Barnert has escaped East Germany and now lives in West Germany, but is tormented by his childhood under the Nazis and the Gdr-regime.

Despite the title Never Look Away, the 3+ hour running time of this sprawling and ambitious semi-biographical story of famed German artist Gerhard Richter (renamed here Kurt Barnert) might send inpatient viewers running for the hills. That sentiment even applies for moviegoers that might have a slight passing interest in the general synopsis.

Oscar-Nominated ‘Never Look Away’ Arrives In Theaters; ‘The Invisibles’ Appears – Specialty B.O. Preview
German filmmaker Florian Henckel von Donnersmark made a splash in the foreign language box office over a decade ago with The Lives of Others, which took the Oscar for Best Foreign Language film. He is back again with Sony Pictures Classics for Never Look Away, which is also vying for Oscar this year. Also out in theaters beginning Friday is Greenwich Entertainment’s WWII-era drama, The Invisibles, which was the first pick up for the company back in 2017. And on a decidedly different note, Cinedigm is mixing camp and horror with Dead Ant starring Tom Arnold and Sean Astin.

Also this weekend, Focus Features is taking Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman back to theaters following its six Oscar nominations. The company said the film, which grossed over $48.5M in its initial run in theaters starting last August, will play 168 theaters around the country beginning Friday.

Therapy For A Vampire – Review

Summer just officially started just a few days ago, so Halloween is months away. Perhaps a great way to get us cooled off, to put us in a Fall state of mind, would be to pay a visit to one of the oldest horror movie icons: the vampire. Everyone’s aware of how scary those fanged fiends can be, but you may have forgotten how funny they are (intentionally, of course). Movie audiences have emitted nervous laughter ever since Max Schreck emerged from the shadows in the silent classic Nosferatu. And certainly there are bits (and bites) of humor (mostly comic relief supporting players) in 1931’s Dracula and Mark Of The Vampire, both with Bela Lugosi. It wasn’t until 1948 that he was in an all out farce (though the Count is never lampooned) in Abbott And Costello Meet Frankenstein. After Hammer Studios brought back (in full gory color) the bloodsuckers ten years later,

Beta reunites with Oscar-winner von Donnersmarck
Shoot is underway in Berlin on The Lives Of Others director’s third film.

German sales agent Beta Cinema has reunited with the Oscar-winning director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck on his third feature, Werk Ohne Autor [Work Without Author], after having handled international sales on his debut The Lives Of Others in 2006.

In psychological thriller Work Without Author, young artist Kurt Barnert (Tom Schilling) has fled to West-Germany, but he continues to be tormented by the experiences he made in his childhood and youth in the Nazi years and during the Gdr-regime.

When he meets the student Ellie (Paula Beer), he is convinced that he has met the love of his life and begins to create paintings that mirror not only his own fate, but also the traumas of an entire generation.

Sebastian Koch, who was catapulted into the international spotlight after his lead role in The Lives of Others, has also been cast as one of the leads in [link

Therapy For A Vampire Review

Driven by a Transylvanian aesthetic (by way of 1930s Vienna), Therapy For A Vampire never hides its intentions of piggybacking off the success of What We Do In The Shadows. From jarring arterial geysers of blood to a lively score, David Rühm’s standalone feels like a spiritual continuation of Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi’s hilarious vampire mockumentary – intentional or not. Both movies deal with human/vampire interactions, both contain silly gags involving vampire mythos and both are cheekily light-hearted. Yet, only one succeeds at being a consistently funny genre satire, and the answer to which one it is shouldn’t come as a shock.

Spoiler alert: it’s not Therapy For A Vampire.

Rühm’s tale follows two sets of lovers who cross paths – one couple undead, the other fleshy humans. Local waitress Lucy (Cornelia Ivancan) and her painter companion Viktor (Dominic Oley) have hit a bit of a rough patch,

Therapy For A Vampire Trailer, Photos & Theatrical Release Details

When you’ve been married for centuries, it can be difficult to keep your marriage fresh. A bloodsucker seeks psycological counseling in Therapy for a Vampire, a new horror comedy hitting theaters this month.

Synopsis: “Vienna, 1930. Count von Kozsnom has lost his thirst for life, and his marriage cooled centuries ago. Fortunately, Sigmund Freud is accepting new patients; the good doctor suggests the Count appease his vain wife by commissioning a portrait of her by his assistant, Viktor. But it’s Viktor’s headstrong girlfriend Lucy who most intrigues the Count, convinced she’s the reincarnation of his one true love. Soon, the whole crowd is a hilarious mess of mistaken identities and misplaced affections in this send-up of the vampire genre, proving that 500 years of marriage is enough.”

DVD Review: Rachel Weisz Delivers Oscar-Caliber Work in ‘The Whistleblower’

Chicago – I have a sneaking suspicion that if The Weinstein Company had acquired this film and released it during the 2011 awards season, Rachel Weisz would currently be an Oscar nominee. After playing an assortment of vulnerable, photogenic damsels throughout her career, Weisz delivers her most potent and compelling work to date in Larysa Kondracki’s fact-based thriller.

Though the actress has won an Oscar before, it was for her rather thankless role in Fernando Meirelles’s downbeat drama, “The Constant Gardener.” “The Whistleblower” functions as a smart follow-up to Alejandro Amenábar’s equally overlooked 2009 gem, “Agora,” in which Weisz played another strong-willed rebel who risked everything in pursuit of the truth. Both Hypatia in “Agora” and Kathryn Bolkovac in “The Whistleblower” are empowering figures with unsettling life stories that hit all too close to home.

DVD Rating: 3.5/5.0

Despite some narrative contrivances and a manipulative third-act twist, Kondracki’s film is

BFI London Film Festival 2011: 'Dreileben 2: Don't Follow Me Around'

  • CineVue
★★★☆☆ The second film in the German Dreileben trilogy, Dominik Graf's Dreileben 2: Don't Follow Me Around (2011) is a very different creature to Christian Petzold's Beats Being Dead (2011), taking a more straightforward, politically-informed approach to narrative storytelling. Whilst Petzold's effort focused on the lives of Dreileben's youth, Graf's contribution to the project explores the love lives of three affluent middle-class individuals, whilst the hunt for the fugitive sex offender Molesch (Stefan Kurt) continues.

This time around, the focus lies on single mother Johanna (Jeanette Hain), a police psychologist brought in to help in the search for Molesch. Staying with her old university friend and Dreileben resident Vera (Susanne Wolff) and her novelist husband Bruno (Misel Maticevic), their nights soon turn into wine-fuelled reminiscing sessions. It quickly transpires that the two friends were once both infatuated by the same man, and an unconventional love triangle soon re-emerges from the girls' past.
