Manchester by the Sea is Kenneth Lonergan’s third film, and his strongest result yet. The story centers on Lee Chandler (Casey Affleck), a custodian in Boston who learns of his brother’s death and goes home to the fishing village of Manchester by the Sea to settle his brother’s affairs, including the status of his now-orphaned nephew, Patrick (Lucas Hedges Full Story

TIFF kicks off this week, and I’ll be filing reviews along with Joanna and Kathleen. It’s a little bit of a weird year, The Birth of a Nation and Nate Parker dominating so much of the pre-festival conversation, but Venice got underway last week, and Telluride went down over the long weekend in the US, and we now have some other movies to talk about. Full Story

Yesterday the Toronto International Film Festival announced the first slate of films that will screen during the festival, from September 8-18. This is only the first wave of titles, and TIFF 2016 is already a doozy. I don’t even know where to begin sorting out the schedule. I guess with the opening night film which is The Magnificent Seven remake starring Denzel Washington Full Story

Boasting an impressive cast that includes Casey Affleck, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Aaron Paul, Anthony Mackie, Woody Harrelson, and Kate Winslet, Gritty Cop Drama is exactly the kind of gritty cop drama you get sucked into watching on cable on a Saturday afternoon. It’s got just enough going on under the hood to not feel like a complete waste of time, but it’s also not interested in saying anything new or interesting about gritty cops, so it’s easy enough to forget all about it once it’s over. Full Story

I texted Lainey the other night after seeing Casey Affleck’s new movie, Triple 9, that I think he might have A Moment coming. She agreed, but then he went on Late Night with Stephen Colbert to promote the movie and had an awkward interview, and she was like, maybe that moment won’t come after all. Full Story

The second maritime disaster movie in as many months, following December’s In the Heart of the Sea, The Finest Hours, like that other movie, did not have a terribly impressive opening weekend. That’s consistent with Sea, suggesting that people don’t really have an appetite for boat movies right now, though the people who did see Hours gave it an A- CinemaScore, meaning that pretty much everyone liked it. Full Story

It is my opinion that between the Affleck brothers, Casey is the better all-around actor. He can do character work, he can carry as a lead, he can disappear into roles or look sufficiently Hollywood, depending on how “visible” you want your star to be. Ben Affleck has proven to be a better filmmaker than anyone expected, but Casey, for my money, delivers much more as an actor than Ben does. Full Story

At the PETA Gala on Saturday night – Joaquin Phoenix showed up clean-shaven and lean, like Johnny Cash lean, hand in hand with his sister Rain, all smiles and even, almost, jovial with photographers. Photo Assumption says someone is actually trying (hard) to be liked again and, while we’re at it, to convince people he’s not f-cked up. Full Story
