Ep. 145 - Paris Can Wait; Anne with an E; The Wizard of Lies - Movie & TV Reviews
4 days ago
The latest from La Croisette: which Oscar winner has four movies screening at the Cannes Film Festival this week; and which film was the first to be booed (and why).
At 5:28: In honor of Memorial Day, this week's #ListOfSix: Our 6 Favorite War/Soldier/Veteran Movies.
11:27: Eleanor Coppola makes her narrative feature debut at the age of 80. O'Toole on Paris Can Wait (starring Diane Lane, Alec Baldwin, and Arnaud Viard).
Paris Can Wait inspires this week's #BlastFromThePastFilms: Cairo Time (2009), Unfaithful (2002) and A Walk on the Moon (1999).
17:39: Then it's on to Anne with an E, Netflix' adaptation of the beloved children's book Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery. How does it compare to the Emmy-winning 1985 series? What is Hollister's criticism of the criticism? And why does it make O'Toole think of Liza Minnelli?
26:10: The biggest Ponzi scheme of all time: Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer as Bernie & Ruth Madoff in Barry Levinson's The Wizard of Lies (HBO). Based on the best-selling book by Diana Henriques (who herself makes a cameo in the film).
38:11 Hollister hates to give Bernie any more attention than he's already received (her written review of the Richard Dreyfuss-Blythe Danner pairing here), so, instead, ends with an announcement: don't miss Season 5 of House of Cards - which Netflix will be releasing May 30.
