“Jeremiah Terminator LeRoy” Early TIFF Reviews

Diane’s upcoming film, Jeremiah Terminator LeRoy made it’s world premiere during the Toronto International Film Festival over the weekend. The film closed the annual festival with the film’s stars, Kristen Stewart and Laura Dern hitting the red carpet. Take a look below at what the critic’s early reviews are saying about the project:

The Hollywood Reporter – A lot more than heart is lacking in the plodding, psychologically anemic script Kelly co-wrote with Savannah Knoop, based on her memoir about being drawn into the scandal that fooled book critics and readers alike in the early 2000s. For a movie about what’s going on under the elaborately staged surface, it’s pretty much all surface, right down to its shallow observations about gender fluidity, queer identity and the creative freedom of the alternate persona.

Slash Films – Dern and Stewart are so inspiring together that it’s a damn shame the rest of the film can’t match them. I kept waiting for Jeremiah Terminator LeRoy to pick up as it unfolded; to settle into the right groove. It never happened. Instead, Dern and Stewart are forced to carry the entire film on their shoulders. Kruger is quite good as Eva, although at times the character trips into parody mode. Jim Sturgess gets lost in the shuffle as Savannah’s brother/Laura’s husband. And Courtney Love makes a brief impression in an extended cameo as a film producer. But really, this is Dern and Stewart’s show. Jeremiah Terminator LeRoy is worth seeing for them alone. Pity the rest of the film comes up short.

The Film Stage – Jeremiah Terminator LeRoy is less concerned in issues of authorship and authenticity than Author was, and that’s a key distinction. Instead, this film works to establish a real emotional link between Savannah, Laura, and the audience. The hugely talented Kelly nails it. Yet the aforementioned air of over-familiarity is impossible to overcome. It keeps Jeremiah from ever approaching greatness, but while the film may not count as a complete success, the performances are worthy of great praise.

The Playlist – his alluring story is given a rather standard treatment from director Kelly. Feeling stilted and steeped in uninspired biopic tropes, Kelly’s film never comes close to an inventiveness worthy of JT’s imaginative, outrageous story. “Jeremiah Terminator LeRoy” barely justifies its existence, and if you already know the basics of this tall tale, it’s not at all exciting to watch.

Diane Invited into The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has invited a record number of new members, extending invites to 928 people.

The Academy topped last year’s record of 774 new members. It invited 683 members in 2016 and 322 in 2015, which were also record numbers.

The expansion of Academy membership to more than 9,200 stems from an ongoing effort to diversify its ranks following uproar over the lack of African-American nominees in 2015 and 2016, which culminated in 2016’s #OscarsSoWhite controversy. Two weeks after the widely criticized nominations were announced, AMPAS announced a goal to double the number of women and diverse members of the Academy by 2020.

If all the 2018 invitees accept, the overall membership would be 9,226.

Monday’s invitations, if accepted, will result in 38% of the Oscars’ governing body’s new class being comprised of people of color, increasing their representation from 13% in 2017 to 16%.

Some of the big-name actors include Daniel Kaluuya, Mindy Kaling, Tiffany Haddish, Kumail Nanjiani, Blake Lively, Amy Schumer, Dave Chappelle, Miles Teller, Randall Park, Daisy Ridley, Timothee Chalamet, Hong Chau, Emilia Clarke, Lena Headey, Blake Lively, Regina Hall, Rashida Jones, Lily James, Lily Collins, Chloe Grace Moretz, Olivia Munn, Kal Penn, Pedro Pascal, Amber Tamblyn, Damon Wayans, Gina Rodriguez, Sarah Silverman, Jada Pinkett Smith, Evan Rachel Wood, and Diane Kruger.

“Welcome to Marwen” Official Trailer

The first trailer for the upcoming film, Welcome to Marwen has been released. Directed by Robert Zemeckis, the film is based on Jeff Malmberg’s award-winning 2010 documentary Marwencol, and sees Carell playing the real-life Mark Hogancamp, who was beaten into a coma by five men and spent 40 days in the hospital.

After the attack left him with brain damage and PTSD, Hogancamp immersed himself in an intricate world of World War II-era miniatures as a form of art therapy. In the trailer, Zemeckis mashes both worlds together – Hogancamp’s fictional, tiny town of Marwen and his actual reality – to wondrously trippy effect. Welcome to Marwen also stars Leslie Mann, Diane Kruger, Merritt Wever, Janelle Monáe, Eiza González, and Gwendolyn Christie, and hits theaters on October 12th.
