Guillermo del Toro to Open Cinema Named after Him at Guadalajara Fest (EXCLUSIVE)

Posted: 25 Feb 2018 05:14 AM PST

Multi Oscar-nominated Guillermo del Toro is slated to open a new cinema named after him in Guadalajara, his hometown, on March 10, in an event which is likely to prove one of the festival’s highlights.

“Hopefully, he’ll have a few Oscars in tow,” said Guadalajara Film Festival director Ivan Trujillo.

The new cinema is one of several that the city is building to improve the festival’s offer. Del Toro’s acclaimed fable “The Shape of Water” has received 13 Oscar nominations, including best director and best picture. The 90th Academy Awards ceremony is slated for Sunday, March 4th.

At least five emerging Mexican filmmakers out of 11 contenders are vying for the Premio Mezcal cash prize of $27,000 (500,000 pesos) for best Mexican fiction film and an audience award of some $5,000 (100,000 pesos).

Leading the pack of titles is Sebastian Hofmann and his sophomore feature “Time Share,” which premiered at Sundance, winning the World Cinema Dramatic Special Jury Prize for Screenwriting.

Hailed by Variety as a “puzzle piece that cleverly probes patriarchal insecurity and corporate invasiveness through the course of one botched family vacation,” “Time Share” is co-penned and produced by Hofmann’s partner Julio Chavezmontes at Mexico City-based shingle Piano.

Ehecatl García’s feature debut, “Cría Puercos,” inspired by his own mother’s experience, turns on a woman – depressed after the demise of her spouse and by the neglect of her son – who finds new impetus in life when she acquires a pet pig.

Actor Ianis Alexis Guerrero (“Nosotros los Nobles,” “Club of Crows”), who has directed shorts and commercials, makes his directorial feature debut with road movie “Juan and Vanessa” about a truck driver trying to mend his ways and a wayward teen who hitches a ride with him.

Alejandro Andrade’s feature debut “Cuernavaca” stars former Almodovar muse Carmen Maura who plays the stern grandmother of a young boy whose mother is gravely injured in an accident. As his mother fights for her life, he faces the rejection of his grandmother and seeks out his father.

Cross-border drama “Mente Revolver” is Alejandro “Jano” Ramirez’s feature debut, produced by his Alma Mater, UNAM, which turns on three characters whose lives intersect over a gun.

Meanwhile, influential vet filmmaker Ignacio Ortiz, who has won multiple Ariel awards – Mexico’s Oscars – for past films “Mezcal” and “Bedtime Fairy Tales for Crocodiles,” returns with father-daughter drama, “Betrayal.”

“Out of the 170 Mexican films produced in the last year, 65 films were presented to us for consideration,” said Trujillo., who’s pleased at the diversity of genres in the selection.

In contrast to the Premio Mezcal’s fiction section, which has only one femme-directed entry, six out of nine Mexican docs vying for the Premio Mezcal are by women this year.

Among the non-fiction standouts in contention are Arturo Diaz Santana’s “Rita, the Documentary,” about iconic Mexican ’90s music, theatre artist and activist Rita Guerrero, who died at the age of 46 from cancer.

Produced by Bertha Navarro and Del Toro, “Ayotzinapa, el Paso de la Tortuga” by Enrique García Meza delves into the mystery behind one of Mexico’s most tragic and still unsolved crimes: the disappearance of 43 students from a local teaching college.

The 33rd Guadalajara Int’l Film Festival runs from March 9 to 16.

Olympics: Offer of North Korea-U.S. Talks Points to Winter Games Peace Dividend

Posted: 25 Feb 2018 05:03 AM PST

North Korea may be willing to hold formal talks with the U.S., it emerged Sunday night in South Korea, during the closing ceremony of the Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang.

The announcement came after North Korean Gen. Kim Yong-chol met South Korean President Moon Jae-in ahead of the closing event. It is not clear whether the U.S. will agree. At the opening ceremony more than two weeks ago, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence declined the chance to meet the visiting North Korean political contingent.

Rumors suggested that politicians from North and South Korea, two nations still technically at war, have also agreed to further talks. If confirmed, that would amount to a real peace dividend, emerging from the recent “Olympic truce.”

The putting aside of individual tears, disappointments and political differences seemed to be a common theme. South Korean organizers put on another spectacular ceremony that mixed pomp, pride, medal presentations and an air of wintry fun.

As at the opening, North Korean politicians were once again in the audience. So too was Ivanka Trump, daughter of the U.S. president. And the two Koreas attended again as a united Team Korea.

Athletes marched into the stadium after a quick parade of flagbearers. It was still a national parade, and more so than at previous Games ceremonies, but the whole thing was more playful than the opening.

Jessie Diggins carried the flag for Team USA. The U.S. Olympic Committee may be set for some kind of internal inquiry after bringing its largest ever delegation but coming in fourth with 23 medals, including nine golds. That was far fewer than the 37 medals projected. Ahead of the ceremony, though, such thoughts were left on the sidelines.

“I look at it and I go, ‘OK, medals are one story, but if you look at the depth of everything that’s going on, and the number of people who are fourth and fifth place, and the commitment level and intensity of the athletes, you can’t ask for more than that,” USOC chief of performance Alan Ashley told international media.

The medal table was topped by a remarkable Norwegian team, which earned 39 medals (14 gold, 14 silver and 11 bronze) followed by Germany. Norway’s Marit Bjoergen, 37, collected her eighth Olympic gold at one of two medal presentations included in the closing ceremony.

Nevertheless, the ceremony missed an opportunity to put right some of the wrongs of the 2014 games in Sochi, when dozens of Russians were awarded medals but were subsequently stripped of them for doping. The rightful winners were not acknowledged at the Pyeongchang closing ceremony.

Instead, the closing ceremony mashed up spectacular synchronized dance routines, digital technology and bombastic speeches. A squadron of drones was used to make clever and cute patterns in the night sky, including a friendly teddy bear.

Vivaldi’s “Winter” was rocked up and performed at pace on an electric guitar played by a 13-year-old girl, accompanied by an orchestra of traditional and modern instruments. Other music sequences mixed up Disney-like showtunes and Koreanized-Americana.

K-pop was, inevitably, on show. It was played over a video clip recalling several medal-winning performances. Later, female star CL, wearing a wintry bondage costume, tried to rouse the 35,000 spectators, who were still largely invisible behind a 360-degree LED system. Male K-pop supergroup EXO was one of the last acts to take to the stage. They played their hit tune “Power.”

International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach made the traditional final call for the youth of the world to reassemble in Beijing in four years, for the 2022 Winter Games.

Berlin Film Review: ‘Lemonade’

Posted: 25 Feb 2018 02:50 AM PST

The old adage about making sour fruit into sweet refreshment is implicit in the title of Romanian writer-director Ioana Uricaru‘s promising first feature “Lemonade.” Martha Stewart herself, however, would be stumped by the wizened, acrid lemons our hapless heroine is handed in this heart-pinching hard-luck story from America’s green card-seeking margins. Bearing the tersely empathetic, socially conscious stamp of producer Cristian Mungiu, albeit with less of his pristine formal finesse, Uricaru’s tough study of a young migrant caretaker marrying hastily to secure the American Dream for herself and her young son is as damning of U.S. institutional corruption as Mungiu’s own work has been of Romanian authorities. Though Uricaru permits a dash of cockeyed hope into proceedings, an upright spine of against-the-system anger keeps “Lemonade” suitably tart throughout.

Mungiu’s prestigious imprimatur should help garner significant interest in “Lemonade” on the festival circuit following its Berlinale premiere, with select arthouse distribution for the American-set, predominantly English-language film a possibility in multiple territories. Following up on the striking segment she directed for 2009’s Mungiu-produced portmanteau “Tales from the Golden Age,” Uricaru’s film seems a calling card for bigger, bolder features to come, whether produced at home or abroad.

The director drew on her own experiences as a Romanian immigrant in America for her lean but tightly plotted screenplay, co-written with Tatiana Ionascu, and the resulting film seethes with the conviction of lived experience — even if “Lemonade’s” heroine Mara (Malina Manovici) faces far grimmer prospects. We meet her in the midst of her processing by U.S. immigration authorities, as she’s medically examined and vaccinated without consultation: a demeaning experience that she shrugs off as being part of the system. Her older American husband Daniel (Dylan Scott Smith) is furious on her behalf, but Uricaru and Mara both know that such outrage is an insider’s privilege: She’s just trying to keep her head down and get through the machine.

Swiftly we piece together the backstory: She and Daniel are newlyweds, having met mere months before when she was assigned as his caretaker after he suffered a work-related injury. The marriage came just as her six-month U.S. visa was set to expire; all evidence may point to it being one of convenience, but “Lemonade” isn’t at all clear-cut on the nature of Mara and Daniel’s relationship. Either way, she’s determined to make it work for the sake of her eight-year-old son Dragos (a fine, subtly wary Milan Hurduc), who arrives in America unaware that his mother has no intention of returning home; the dearth of economic opportunities for women like Mara in Romania go unspoken in “Lemonade,” but are all too clear.

Yet present-day America is far from a land of uncompromised milk and honey, as initially benevolent but misogynistic immigration officer Moji (Steve Bacic) binds her into a no-win situation; abuse of power is the order of the day in a film that topically tackles both sexual exploitation and xenophobia in the country’s conservative patriarchy. Uricaru’s film doesn’t push its political buttons lightly, and her characterization risks being over-schematic to underline an already potent point. Still, “Lemonade” remains effective and agitating precisely where it needs to be, while the subtleties of Manovici’s performance, clouding her ingenue-like appearance with flashes of hard-lived savvy, keep the drama on edge.

Visually, “Lemonade” lacks the interior scope and compositional sharpness associated with Romania’s finest, though that may be deliberate: Uricaru and DP Friede Clausz paint their unspecified corner of Wherever, America in wan, faded hues and gray-marl shadows, robbing its bleak collage of highways, motels and government waiting rooms of any distinguishing features to an unwelcome outsider. Perhaps it’s only once you get the green card that any color floods into the picture. Mara, for her part, is patiently willing to bide her time in the murk. To borrow a lyric from “Lemonade’s” Beyoncé-driven namesake: “Always stay gracious, best revenge is your paper.”

Richard E Grant hit with metal bar

Posted: 25 Feb 2018 01:00 AM PST

Richard E. Grant was hospitalized after being hit on the head with a metal bar.

The 60-year-old actor caused concern among his fans when he tweeted to thank the nurses who had looked after him when he sought treatment following the mystery accident.

He posted: “Am truly indebted to Nurses Holly & Theresa at Stroud NHS hospital for sorting out my head wound this evening.Heavy metal bar clonked my cranium and they kindly cleaned me up & glued me together again like Humpty Dumpty! (sic)”

It is believed Richard was at his home in the Cotswolds when he got hurt.

The ‘Withnail and I’ star later covered up the wound with a cap in the style of those worn on popular drama series ‘Peaky Blinders’ and claimed he’d be wearing headgear until he was fully healed.

He shared a photo of himself in his hat and wrote: “Thank you for all the kind messages of support. Wearing a cover-up cap till I’m Peaky Blinder better!”

The ‘Logan’ actor has not had a great 2018 so far.

Richard saw in the New Year in South Africa, but his celebrations were dampened when he was robbed at a cash point in Cape Town.

At the time, he shared a photo of the stunning scenery of the city but captioned the image: “Feel like a right mug having been mugged at an ATM in Cape Town. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr (sic)”

The ‘Spice World’ actor had been in Swaziland to visit his family over the festive period, before heading to nearby Cape Town to continue his holiday.

Britney Spears’ ex-husband wants more child support

Posted: 25 Feb 2018 01:00 AM PST

Britney Spears’ ex-husband is to seek an increase in child support payments from the singer.

The ‘Toxic’ hitmaker – who makes a reported $475,000 a show from her Las Vegas residency – currently pays Kevin Federline $20,000-a-month for their sons Sean Preston, 12, and 11-year-old Jayden, an agreement based on a percentage of her income at the time, but the dancer’s lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, sent a letter to the 36-year-old star last week asking to open up discussions regarding the payment.

A source told E! News: “Kevin is trying to voluntarily revisit a modification of the existing child support number, given that the kids are older and the financial circumstances of the parties are significantly different than when the child support was originally resolved.

“A letter asking to meet and confer on the issue was sent to Britney’s representative on Thursday.”

According to The Blast, the letter didn’t specify how much Kevin is looking for, but he wants a “big increase”.

However, the 39-year-old DJ isn’t looking for a nasty public battle and hopes they can resolve the matter through private discussions.

Kevin – who was married to Britney 2004 to 2007 – wants his child support based on how much custody he has with his sons and also how much money the ‘Piece of Me’ singer earns, to ensure the boys can live an equal lifestyle with both parents.

Last summer, Kevin – who also has children Kori, 15, and Kaleb, 13, with ex-fiancee Shar Jackson, and Jordan, six, and Peyton, three, with wife Victoria Prince – admitted co-parenting with his former partners has grown “a lot easier” now as they have an established routine in place.

He said: “You fall into your routine and it’s really easy now. It wasn’t always easy, but it’s a lot easier now.”

Kim Cattrall attends memorial for brother

Posted: 25 Feb 2018 01:00 AM PST

Kim Cattrall attended a memorial service in honour of her late brother on Saturday (02.24.18).

The ‘Sex and the City’ actress thanked her friends and Revd Peter Sutton for making her laugh as she lit a candle for Christopher Cattrall – whose body was found in the grounds of his home in Canada earlier this month – at a church in Scotland.

She shared a lighthearted photo on Instagram of herself smiling with the vicar and wrote: “Thank you to St Cuthbert’s Parish Minister in Edinburgh Reverend Peter Sutton and our wonderful, joyful Scottish friends for making us laugh today. Lighting a candle in memory of our brother, son, father & husband, Christopher Adrian Alexander Cattrall. Forever in our thoughts. RIP xo.(sic)”

The 61-year-old actress revealed on Twitter on February 4 that her brother’s body had been found, shortly after she had appealed for information after he’d gone missing.

She wrote at the time: “It is with great sadness that myself and my family announce the unexpected passing of our son and brother, Chris Cattrall.

“At this time we ask for privacy. We want to thank you all on social media for your outpouring of love and support in this trying time.”

The tragedy sparked a public feud between Kim and her former ‘Sex and the City’ co-star Sarah Jessica Parker, after the ‘Divorce’ actress reached out on Instagram to offer her condolences following Christopher’s death.

Commenting on the Instagram post in which Kim confirmed the news, Sarah, 52, wrote: “Dearest Kim, my love and condolences to you and yours and Godspeed to your beloved brother. Xx (sic)”

But days later the ‘Mannequin’ star fumed: “I don’t need your love or support at this tragic time @sarahjessicaparker (sic)”

And captioning the picture, she added: “My Mom asked me today ‘When will that @sarahjessicaparker, that hypocrite, leave you alone?’ Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now.

“Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona. (sic)”

Sisters abused by stepfather now blame mother

Posted: 25 Feb 2018 12:01 AM PST

Dear Amy: I had a rough childhood. My mom and dad had my older sister and me before they divorced. My mom remarried, and my stepfather had a son from his previous marriage. They then had a boy of their own.

My sister and I were always treated more harshly by our stepfather than our brothers were treated. Our punishment was a lashing from a leather belt. It was harsh and abusive, and started when we were very young.

It stopped when we were around 13 years old.

I would be left with bruises for days, making it painful to sit down at school.

I know that my older stepbrother only got the leather a few times and that my little brother only ever got a spanking from a wooden spoon.

I am 30 years old now. My stepfather is a changed man. He is no longer the man that abused me, but is kind and loving.

My issue lies with my mother. Throughout all this, she never once told my stepfather to stop, or that we didn’t deserve such an abusive form of punishment.

Whenever I made my way out of the bedroom after a lashing, tears streaming down my face, I remember only seeing my mother’s back. She never looked me in the eye. She never stood up for me and I carry around hatred and bitterness toward her for that.

Now my mother desperately wants to have a relationship with my sister and me. I see that she is heartbroken and confused as to why we struggle to have one with her. We desperately want one with her too, but we both can’t drop our guard. I guess we both still believe that our mother hasn’t changed at all — unlike our stepfather.

My mother is a soft and emotional woman. I don’t know if having a conversation with her will just break her heart. Can I resolve this myself without demanding to know why she didn’t stand up for me as a child?

— E

Dear E: If you could have resolved this by yourself, you probably would have done so already. It is significant that you have been able to forgive your abusive stepfather, and yet you hold onto bitterness and resentment toward your mother.

You might assume that the fearsome man that beat you with a leather belt also frightened your mother into submission. She couldn’t make eye contact with you because she was afraid and ashamed.

Physical abuse threatens and intimidates the entire family. This is why cruel punishers often want others to witness what they do.

It is better for you to risk cracking open your mother’s heart a little, allowing everyone to express their truth, versus extending an estrangement. You and your sister will get further with her if you don’t gang up on her or overwhelm her. If all of you are desperate to have a relationship, commence the process with a determination to listen, try to understand, lean into forgiveness and love each other through it.

Dear Amy: Is it just me, or does everyone interrupt?

I can be talking to anyone — even family members — and they’ll interrupt me or talk over me.

Even cable news panels talk over each other and interrupt.

Is this new? Where are everyone’s manners?

Why doesn’t anyone care about what I say?

Am I just too long-winded?

— Ignored

Dear Ignored: Great question. I do believe that we are all interrupting one another more often. I’ve read through two recent university studies demonstrating that men interrupt more frequently than women.

According to a 2014 study from George Washington University, men interrupt 33 percent more frequently when they are talking to women, versus talking to other men.

This dynamic has extended to the Supreme Court. A separate study from Northwestern shows that male justices talk over female justices far more frequently than fellow male justices. With three female justices on the court, 65 percent of interruptions were directed at them.

Interrupting is about establishing a power position.

When you are being interrupted, lock eyes and say, “I have a couple of other points I want to make. Then I’d love to hear what you think. Can you let me finish?”

Dear Amy: “Upset Girlfriend” described her boyfriend’s desire to have a “drunken one-night stand” in Vegas.

While I agreed with your response regarding her need to be honest with him and also not control him, you neglected to point out that STDs are a real risk.

Sexually Safe

Dear Safe: Absolutely. Thank you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Enjoy nourishment, not nonsense. You won’t build muscle on a steady diet of candy. Useful ideas are created this week through stimulating conversation and a diet of empowering information.

IF FEBRUARY 25 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Your romantic nature could lead you to embrace unrealistic plans and ideas over the next six to seven weeks. Your gullibility makes you an easy mark for the unscrupulous. In May your feet are back on the ground and you might be better equipped to handle career and monetary affairs. Start nothing new in July when you may be called upon to fulfill your obligations faithfully. Make crucial financial decisions or investments during August or November when your business sense is at its best. Be as self-disciplined as possible, even if you are restless and unsure of your prospects. Late September or early October is a time when you can take a delightful vacation or have a carefree fling.
