Een witte man zijn in de jaren negentig. Dat betekent: kantoorhokjes, seksuele frustratie en vooral heel veel ontevredenheid. Dat is het beeld van heel veel films uit dat ene roemruchte jaar, 1999. Maar als er een film is die het héél erg benadrukt – de oertekst, if you will – dan is het wel American Beauty. En met vijf Oscars op de conto lijkt het erop dat het in die tijd zelf ook heel erg werd gewaardeerd dat dit punt werd gemaakt. Want wie werd er destijds niet verliefd op een plastic zakje in de wind? In 2022 is onze blik nogal verschoven. Het blijft een goed gemaakte film over een midlifecrisis, dat moet ook filmcriticus Hedwig van Driel (o.a. Schokkend Nieuws) erkennen. Maar inhoudelijk heeft ze duidelijk haar aanmerkingen. En hoe verder Ruud is geraakt van de herkijkbeurt – de podcast moest namelijk opnieuw worden opgenomen – hoe meer hij ook zijn kanttekeningen moet plaatsen bij de inhoud van American Beauty. Het gaat ook over de raakvlakken met de tv-serie Kevin Can Go F*** Himself, het beroep van de ouders van actrice Thora Birch en over de mate waarin het Madonna-hoercomplex een rol speelt in deze film.

Not every movie has to be the biggest and the best, the funniest and most clever, the loudest and most spectacular. It is okay sometimes for a movie to just, you know, be a movie. That is preceisely what we encounter today with the Bryan Cranston and Annette Bening-starring "Jerry and Marge go Large." The now available on Blu-ray and digital comedy is... fine, and that's quite enough.
In 1991, Warren Beatty jumped onto the big screen to portray one the most feared and most famous mobsters of all time...Bugsy. The film, directed by Barry Levinson and co-starring Annette Bening (as Bugsy's longtime girlfriend, Virginia Hill) tells the story of Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel and his role in the creation of The Flamingo and the building of Las Vegas as an "oasis in the desert". Bugsy was minor hit, grossing just over $49 Million at the box office, receiving high praise from critics, and garnering several Academy Award & Golden Globe nominations including a Golden Globe win for "Best Picture - Drama". But despite all these accolades, just how historically accurate was the film? My guest for this episode of the podcast is here to tell us. Making his FOURTH appearance on the podcast is Geoff Schumacher, the Vice President of Exhibits and Programs at the Mob Museum in Las Vegas. Geoff was kind enough to join me once again to help separate fact from fiction when it comes to the story of Bugsy Siegel. Did Bugsy actually try to get into acting during his time in Hollywood? Who actually came up with the idea for The Flamingo? And was opening night at the casino really a total flop? If you want to learn more about Bugsy & his associates and their place in Las Vegas history, plan a visit to the Mob Museum on your next Vegas vacation. You can also follow the Mob Museum on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Adam Driver and Annette Bening star in this highly critical evaluation of the CIA's methodology in their prosecution of the ‘War on Terror'. More of a political drama than a straight up spy story. Based on true events. Also known as ‘The Report', also known as ‘The Torture Report'. Our next subject will be The Spy Who Came in from the Cold (1965), based on John Le Carre's international bestselling novel. One of the most famous and influential spy films of all time.

Sam Mendes earned an Oscar for his debut film, "American Beauty." But more importantly, he gave the Shat Crew fuel for discussing couch sex, Chekov's dick, the ignorance of youth and world peace through blowjobs. Longtime Shat listener Lucas passed on a chance to commission "Beastmaster," and instead requested a true masterpiece that explores how parents mess up their kids, what can happen when you fall in love young and grow old, and how flexible Annette Bening is. In this episode, the Shat Crew discusses The Plastic Bag Scene, Ash's attraction to creepy-ass Ricky, Gene's try-hard tendencies and unexpected parallels to "Uncle Buck."

Over sandwiches, Larry and Phil discuss lots of common ground as showrunners, Larry's experiences working with Eddie Murphy and Bernie Mac, and David reveals how Larry helped inspire him at a key moment early in his career writing for TV. Larry also does some Fab imitations of The Beatles, Muhammad Ali and Groucho Marx, and explains how co-starring with Bryan Cranston and Annette Bening in "Jerry & Marge Go Large" on Paramount + helped him find something positive to focus on in the wake the 2021 death of his brother Marc Wilmore.

The Grift is on this week on Scene Stealers. We open The Vault for something new and something groovy. Leo talks about Idris Elba vs. a lion in the ferocious new film Beast, while Charles takes out Roll Bounce and asks for a new evaluation on this guilty pleasure. But the Safe is Cracked for the main event- Stephen Frears wickedly deceptive caper from 1990- The Grifters- which is certainly a new kind of heist movie for Leo and Charles to discuss. With a trio of slick performances from Anjelica Huston, John Cusack, and Annette Bening, every character is looking for the next score, but you can always trust the guidance of Scene Stealers.

Growing up around the film business, Amy Baer always loved movies and reading. Unsure of what she wanted to do professionally, Amy was certain of one thing. Whatever she chose to do post-college, it had to be something that she really cared about and that excited her as opposed to what she thought she should or shouldn't be doing. Following her instincts and staying authentic to herself, Amy has navigated a successful, joyful and creative career. Amy currently serves as President of Landline Pictures, a label within MRC Film (KNIVES OUT) that makes feature films about and for a 50+ audience. Launched in 2020, its first movie, JERRY & MARGE GO LARGE, starring Bryan Cranston and Annette Bening, was released by Paramount+ on 6/17/22. Prior to Landline, Amy raised a 7-figure development fund in 2012 and launched Gidden Media, one of the industry's only female-led, independently financed content incubation companies. Her first film as a producer was the 2013 hit LAST VEGAS (starring Michael Douglas, Robert DeNiro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline) which grossed $136MM worldwide. She also produced the 2017 romantic drama MARY SHELLEY and the 2019 inspirational true story BRIAN BANKS. Prior to that, Amy served as President & CEO of CBS Films (2007-2011), and spent the previous 17 years at Sony Pictures Entertainment, where she oversaw such hit films as MY BEST FRIEND'S WEDDING (1997), the Oscar-nominated ADAPTATION (2001), S.W.A.T. (2002), SOMETHING'S GOTTA GIVE (2003), and the 2006 holiday hit, THE HOLIDAY. Amy also developed the 2011 Oscar-nominated Sony hit MONEYBALL, starring Brad Pitt. She began her career at Creative Artists Agency in 1988 as an assistant to the late Jay Moloney. Amy has served as Board President of Women in Film since June 2018. What You Will Hear in This Episode: Amy's personal story Trusting your instinct Becoming a book reader at CAA Learning to be a studio executive Developing a script My Best Friend's Wedding Balancing executive life and motherhood Starting a new studio Taking time off and rediscovering her why The differences between being a buyer vs a seller Gen X and making movies for an older audience Being authentic and staying grounded Quotes “I've always been able to access theme and emotion as a way of advocating material.” “The only way to understand good writing is to read good writing and, and to do that, you have to constantly be reading.” “I was extremely lucky that I was surrounded by senior women who had children and were empathetic to the balance.” “I had to deal with the notion that even though I didn't want that job, I was never really in consideration for it because I was having kids and I had to reconcile that reality.” “Launching my own business was the first time in my career that I felt like a grownup because the agenda was mine.” “Gen X are aging in a way that's very much more dynamic than earlier generations.” “A lot of times when you launch a new venture, part of your success early in your lifecycle is luck, literally. “ “If I was someone that always took an opportunity to make a buck, I would probably have a lot more money, but I may not be as happy or as content.” Mentioned: Landline Pictures MRC https://bonniemarcusleadership.com/ https://web.facebook.com/bonnie.marcus/ https://www.linkedin.com/in/bonniemarcus https://twitter.com/selfpromote https://www.instagram.com/self_promote_/ Gendered Ageism Survey Results Forbes article 5 Tips to own the superpower of your age IAMMusicGroup Purchase my book Not Done Yet on Amazon: If you enjoyed this episode of Badass Women Podcast, then make sure to subscribe to the podcast and drop us a five-star review.
Thank you for joining us for this birthday bonanza episode of Don't Know Her? as we celebrate Scott's big 3-0. As a special birthday treat, Scott got free rein to pick whoever he liked to discuss in this episode. Who did he choose? Only Annette Bening! Annette is a deservedly celebrated star of the silver screen and somebody we continue to want to see more dazzling performances from. With a back catalogue of roles as fabulous as her's is, it was hard to know where to start, but we decided to focus on a variety of her more memorable turns: American Beauty (Sam Mendes, 1999), 20th Century Women (Mike Mills, 2016), The Grifters (Stephen Frears, 1990), Film Stars Don't Die In Liverpool (2017) and even the widely maligned remake of Hollywood classic The Women (Diane English, 2008). With these films, we were able to gush about personal favourites, reassess older favourites and, well, talk about The Women… Michael then tests Scott with a 30th birthday-inspired quiz before they offer up suggestions for some sequels, remakes and other future fantasy films they'd love to see our beloved Annette starring in.

Amy Baer currently serves as President of Landline Pictures, a label within MRC Film that makes feature films about and for the 50+ audience. Launched in 2020, their first movie, JERRY & MARGE GO LARGE, directed by David Frankel, who did MARLEY & ME, is streaming now on Paramount+. Starring Bryan Cranston and Annette Bening, the film is based on the true story of a married couple who used a loophole in the Massachusetts State Lottery to win $27 million. I watched it with my dad a few weeks ago and it's incredibly fun and heartwarming. While Amy grew up in a showbiz family, she still had to carve her own path. One thing was certain: she did not want to be an actor. During her stint at CAA in 1988 as an assistant to the late Jay Moloney, she discovered the studio executive route. She eventually became President & CEO of CBS Films. She also spent 17 years at Sony Pictures Entertainment, where she oversaw impressive films such as: MY BEST FRIEND'S WEDDING (1997) ADAPTATION (2001) S.W.A.T. (2002) SOMETHING'S GOTTA GIVE (2003) THE HOLIDAY (2006) MONEYBALL (2011) Amy's entrepreneurial spirit led her to raise seven figure development fund and launch Gidden Media, one of the industry's only female-led, independently financed content incubation companies. Her first film as a producer was the 2013 hit LAST VEGAS, starring Michael Douglas, Robert DeNiro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline, which grossed $136MM worldwide. A devoted wife and mother of two, Amy has also found time to be Board President of Women in Film since June 2018. A few takeaways from our chat include: Soaking up as much as you can when you are in a job you dislike How leaving the studio system forced her to develop an entrepreneurial muscle And how to not take things personally

We talk about liberal fantasy, the chemistry between the two leads, and Frank talks about needing to be in a certain mood to appreciate this film's idealism. What would you rate this movie on a scale from 1 to 10? TW: this episode was recorded before the mass shootings in Buffalo and Uvalde. There are mentions of gun control throughout the episode.

All aboard because Frances Fisher is on the show this week. You Might Know Her From Titanic, Watchmen, Jolene, House of Sand and Fog, Laws of Attraction, The Sinner, The Lincoln Lawyer, and Unforgiven. In celebration of Titanniversary (it's a real holiday for us), we spoke with Frances about her legendary performance as Ruth Dewitt Bukater in the James Cameron blockbuster. We talked about her epic audition, discovering the character from the period dress and her (real) hair, and how she delivered some of the most iconic lines in all of cinema. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Front Row Classics is thrilled to welcome Turner Classic Movies' host, Ben Mankiewicz. Ben has been an on-air host for the channel since 2003. Our interview covers his background in both film and politics. You'll also learn about some of his most memorable interviews during his tenure with TCM. Brandon and Ben also have fun discussing the pros and cons of classic film fandom. Ben Mankiewicz is the primetime host of Turner Classic Movies. When he made his TCM debut in September 2003, he became only the second host hired in the network's history. During his career at TCM, he has introduced thousands of movies on the air. Additionally, he's become one of the best interviewers in the business, leading thoughtful and entertaining long-form conversations with more than two hundred of the industry's top talents, including Mel Brooks, Bruce Springsteen, Sophia Loren, Martin Scorsese, Warren Beatty, Ava DuVernay, Annette Bening, Robert Redford, Quentin Tarantino, Jodie Foster, Brad Bird, Faye Dunaway, Lou Gossett, Jr., and Michael Douglas. Mankiewicz is the host of TCM's first podcast, The Plot Thickens. Each of the three seasons, I'm Still Peter Bogdanovich, The Devil's Candy, and Lucy, were met with outstanding reviews and industry awards. Since 2019, Mankiewicz has served as a contributor to the Peabody and Emmy-winning news magazine, CBS News Sunday Morning, and has hosted the American Society of Cinematographers Awards since 2018. Prior to TCM, Mankiewicz worked as a reporter and anchor in Charleston, SC, and Miami, FL, twice being named Best Anchor in South Florida by The New Times. Additionally, he contributes to The Young Turks, an online political show he co-founded with Cenk Uygur in 2002. Mankiewicz moved to Los Angeles nearly 75 years after his grandfather, screenwriter Herman Mankiewicz (“Mank” to his all his friends), headed west to work in the movie business. Soon after arriving, Herman cabled his friend Ben Hecht in New York, "There are millions to be grabbed out here and your only competition is idiots. Don't let this get around." His grandson is now proudly one of those idiots. He's a graduate of the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, Tufts University, and Georgetown Day High School in Washington, DC, the school with the worst mascot in recorded history: the Grasshoppers. Mankiewicz lives in Santa Monica with his beautiful wife, their beautiful daughter, one perfect dog, and one other dog, who's available for adoption at any time. Seriously, please take him.
"Tequila Sunrise" commissioner Rachel C. returns with another '90s movie full of sexy people doing confusing things. This week, it's "The Grifters," a 1990 neo-noir thriller that proves even John Cusack, Anjelica Huston, and Annette Bening have their off days. This movie about con people and the con people who love them led to such classy topics as discount grandmas, boob fingerprints, nostalgia trolls, and the kinds of sexual favors landlords can reasonably expect from tenants attempting to seduce them. "The Grifters," nominated for multiple Academy Awards, also brought us the most unlikely death in Shat history and possible the worst heist since "Safe Men," proving critics love anything that hearkens back to old timey movies.

I had the pleasure of chatting with Gloria recently. Fun conversation and I miss seeing her. AND --- Gloria's background is amazing. She was born and raised in the Bronx and attended St. Nicholas Elementary School , and started her acting career by playing the Angel in her kindergarten school play, followed by a new play every year. In High School, she participated in school plays and choir performances, as well as being active in the drama, music, and ecology clubs. Gloria received her B.F.A. in Acting from Long Island University where she graduated Summa Cum Laude. In college, Gloria's portrayal of Ariel in “The Tempest” earned her an Irene Ryan Nomination where she placed as the 1st National Alternate. After college, Gloria embarked on a national tour (“Great Scientists Throughout the Ages” by the National Theatre for the Performing Arts), and two regional tours “Halfway There” with the Periwinkle National Theatre Company, and various plays in repertoire with the George Street Playhouse Touring Company. Afterwards she settled back to NYC where she worked consistently in theatre doing both plays and musical theatre throughout the NY and NJ area, while constantly in acting and dance classes. In NYC, Gloria landed the role of “J” in NYC's Off-Off-Broadway hit “Mono” (Critic's Pick of the week by Time Out NY, Paper Magazine, and NY Magazine in 2004). In 2004, while still living in NYC, Gloria was cast in “Two Sisters and a Piano” by Nilo Cruz at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego, CA. Having had great success in NYC, she relocated to California and immediately got an audition for Jim Carrey's “Fun With Dick and Jane”. Gloria landed the role of “Blanca”, Mr. Carrey's nanny. She then guest starred in NYPD Blue. Gloria continued acting in studio films including “Mother and Child”, starring Annette Bening, Jimmy Smitts, Kerry Washington, Naomi Watts, and Samuel L. Jackson, “Henry Poole Is Here”, directed by Mark Pellington and starring Luke Wilson, George Lopez, Cheryl Hines, and Adriana Barraza and “Fixing Paco,” which was- nominated for an IMAGEN Award for Best Webseries in 2013 and 2014and Gloria played the lead! Gloria is an acting coach and has private and group classes. Her website is www.gloriagarayua.com, and has a video series for beginning actors. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/michelemarotta/support
Simon Morris concedes that luck can often play a big part in a movie's success, and looks at three that have varying amounts of it. Death on the Nile is Sir Kenneth Brannagh's followup to his successful Murder on the Orient Express in 2017. It stars Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Annette Bening, Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders, with Brannagh himself as Hercule Poirot. Blacklight is another Liam Neeson thriller, where once again he plays an undercover FBI agent on the hunt for whoever kidnapped his family. Fortunately he has a very particular set of skills. And Red Rocket is a new movie written and directed by Sean Baker (The Florida Project). Simon Rex plays a loser hoping to revive his shady movie career with the aid of a young girl called Strawberry.

Washington, D.C. has a long history of frauds and fantasists, people who showed up out of nowhere claiming to be somebody important, somebody rich, somebody royal. And people believed them—let them into the inner circle, invested money with them, gave them a seat at the table—only to find out later that they'd been had. That's bad enough when all you lose is money, or a little bit of your pride. Far worse when your heart is involved. This is the bizarre story of Viola Drath, one of D.C.'s most respected players, a brilliant woman who was ahead of her time. Not the sort of woman you'd expect to fall victim to a breathtaking fraud. But as we've seen before on True Crime Campfire, even the smartest people can be taken in by clever acting and relentless charm. Join us for this true story, recently made into the movie "Georgetown" with Annette Bening, Vanessa Redgrave and Christoph Waltz.Sources:NY Times, Franklin Foer.
