Bong Joon-ho Offers First Look at Creature Feature ‘Okja’
Bong Joon-ho Offers First Look at Creature Feature ‘Okja’
2016 saw one of South Korea’s finest filmmakers resurface with a stone-cold masterpiece, as Oldboy and Stoker director Park Chan-wook demolished audiences at Cannes with his beguiling erotic drama The Handmaiden. In 2017, another one of South Korea’s proudest filmmaking sons will make a grand return, as Bong Joon-ho prepares to unveil his latest feature Okja. A master of blackly humorous genre work (the guy never met a B-movie he couldn’t make into high art), Bong last appeared on American shores in 2014 with Snowpiercer, his first foray into English-language filmmaking. To employ a critical parlance, it ruled, and with the first photos from Okja now trickling out in advance of its debut next year, we have every reason to believe Bong’s latest will rule just as hard.

‘Swiss Army Man’ Red-Band Trailer: Harry Potter’s Wand Really Is Magic
There is a quote from ScreenCrush in this Swiss Army Man, calling it “A fart-fueled adventure.” Technically, Erin Whitney called it “a bizarre fart-fueled adventure.” And the trailer does look pretty bizarre, what with Daniel Radcliffe’s rotting corpse farting and being used as a jet ski and, his erection being used by Paul Dano as a crude compass of some kind. Who says cinema is dead? As long as their is life in Daniel Radcliffe’s rotting corpse’s erection, the moves can never die.

Among the hottest topics of conversation at Sundance back in January was a picture by the name of Swiss Army Man, or as it was commonly referred to, “the farting corpse movie.” Described by Variety as “Cast Away meets Weekend at Bernie’s as directed my Michel Gondry,” the singularly weird picture casts Paul Dano as Hank, a man marooned on a desert island who has officially exhausted all his option

How the ‘Swiss Army Man’ Filmmakers Found Meaning in Fart Jokes
It’s only been a week since ‘Swiss Army Man’ shocked Park City audiences at its Sundance world premiere, and the absurdist dramedy is already known as “the Daniel Radcliffe fart movie.” If you’ve seen the headlines and read the reviews (here’s ours), you already know the film prompted some walk-outs after Paul Dano‘s Hank rode the back of Radcliffe’s Manny, a farting corpse, like a jet-ski across an ocean. But, like those who left after the hilarious, blissfully weird opening scene, what you don’t know is that Swiss Army Man is actually a meditation on profound, human topics.
Sundance Review: ‘Swiss Army Man’
Sundance Review: ‘Swiss Army Man’
If you’ve heard anything about ‘Swiss Army Man’ then you already know one very important detail: Daniel Radcliffe is a farting corpse. That may be enough to make you stop reading and decide this film isn’t for you. After all, there were walkouts during the premiere on Friday night (though when aren’t there walkouts?). But wait, there is more to this completely nutty adventure of hypnotic imagery and childlike fantasy. If you’re intrigued by the idea of how such an obscene and immature level of humor can give way to one of the most enjoyably bizarre, confounding and visually inspired movie-watching experiences, then bear with me.

The Actors Who Won’t Be Honored This Oscar Season (But Should Be)
Year-end awards are supposed to honor the best in cinema. But it might be more accurate to say they honor a narrow sliver of the best in cinema; only films released from October thru December; only the stuff promoted by the big studios; only movies deemed “important” or “serious” or “biopics about dead famous people.” The impulse to make lists and give out prizes is a good one, but more often than not that impulse results in one big echo chamber, with pundits predicting — and critics and guilds rewarding — the same half-dozen contenders.

The first trailer for Love and Mercy has arrived, in which Paul Dano and John Cusack take on the role of music legend and Beach Boys frontman Brian Wilson. Love and Mercy generated some positive word of mouth on the festival circuit last year, and since then, we’ve been anticipating the release of this biopic, which promises great performances from both Dano and Cusack in this intimate story about Wilson’s triumphs and struggles.
