As someone who has spent a number of years preparing the definitivebiography of actor George Reeves, I approached this film with greattrepidation. I had previously turned down several offers for the filmrights to my own book because I felt it unlikely that those projectswould result in a film truthf...
I was ten years old when I learned the shocking news of the death ofGeorge Reeves, the television actor whom I idolized as Superman. Iappreciated how "Hollywoodland" made this moment impressionable on theyoungster Evan "Scout" Simo, the son of the investigator Louis Simopursuing leads in the Reeves ...
I recently was lucky enough to get to go to a screening of this filmfollowed by a Q&A with director Allen Coulter, stars Diane Lane andAdrien Brody; each one of which did a fantastic job in their mostrecent performances. Coulter's first foray into film is a verysuccessful one. His abilities with the...
Just when I had given up on ever seeing a "Hollywood Star Filled" filmalong comes a masterful film about the not so famous star of the 1950'stelevision phenomenon, "Superman". I saw the film this evening and Mr.Brody, the director, writer and Ms. Lane were all in attendance butthat did not seem to m...
Just came from a screening of this film thanks to the Palm SpringsInternational Film Society, and it was nearly perfect...like films usedto be before pop culture took over. Adrien Brody was his best since"The Pianist", and Ben Affleck was his best since...well, his best,period. Diane Lane disappeare...
"Hollywoodland" intercuts a biopic of the last eight years in the lifeof actor George Reeves (Ben Affleck) with an investigation by scummyprivate eye Louis Simo (Adrien Brody) into the circumstances of Reeves'death. (He allegedly shot himself in his upstairs bedroom while hisfriends were having a pa...
I wasn't sure what to expect going into this film. I had seen the greattrailer several times and thankfully the film more than lives up to thequality of the trailers. The film is an exploration of fame and whatthat might cost. It is also the story of three people... Louis Simo(Adrien Brody), Toni Ma...
HOLLYWOODLAND is now being shown in NYC at special invitationscreenings. Saw last night. Probably the first serious contender forend-of-year awards. Exceptional in quality of script, cinematography, art direction and,especially, its editing. The four principal actors -- Adrien Brody, Diane Lane, Bob...
The following may contain spoilers.This is actually two movies in one (or two unhappily wedded plot linesin one) - the George Reeves portion, reviewing the last few years ofhis life, prior to Superman and up to his death, is simply excellent.Ben Affleck does a phenomenal job in portraying Reeves. He...
I was blown away by 'Hollywoodland', and I really wasn't expecting tobe. This is a rare film that is both intelligent and entertaining. Ithas comedy (not a lot!), powerful scenes, great acting and a compellingstory. The main elements are Brody's slimy detective trying to make a name forhimself by un...
This film is shown from the perspective of a fictional character, LouisSimo, who is shown in between flashbacks of the circumstancesconcerning the death of George Reeves. While Adrien Brody delivers agood performance, the other characters with the exception of BobHoskins deliver wooden performances....
1959. Los Angeles. Someone's just blown their brains out with a Luger.Or have they? Shady detective gets onto it. The guy was Superman. Orrather, he was George Reeves, who played Superman. Played here by BenAffleck. Movie studios are at a crossroads in history.First up, Ben Affleck is good. For some...
Let it be known that my rather stingy rating for this film does notstem from any dislike of film noir or neo-noir. But this weak entry inthe genre underscores the point that "Chinatown" has a lot to answerfor. For every on the spot classic like "LA Confidential" there are anumber of turkeys like thi...
You would wonder why a movie looking at the 1959 suicide (or possiblemurder) of a moderately well known actor would take over two hoursrunning time to tell the story. It's because the movie is really twostories run side by side. There are flashback sequences of GeorgeReeves (Ben Affleck) in the last...
As if it was almost specifically planned out, we now haveHollywoodland, another Superman related film, only a few months afterSuperman Returns. And fortunately enough, that is where the comparisonsend (unlike the upcoming Infamous and last year's coincidentallyfamiliar Capote). While being heavily f...
Meandering, plodding speculation on whether 50's TV actor George Reevekilled himself or was murdered. I really can't imagine that if yourscript fails to supply Reeve with sufficient desperation that you wouldretreat after a few murder scenarios to suicide (!) as the culprit.Everyone's working at the...
This movie falls apart on several fronts.Number one. It poses the question of "How did George Reeves get thosebruises?" Good enough question, I suppose, and the movie makes a pointof asking it more than once. Problem is, that when the film ends, noone has bothered to explain the bruises! Why do film...
"Hollywoodland" has probably brought George Reeves more fame andcelebrity than even he ever dreamed of - imagine being the subject of afeature film when you were most famous for being the TV Superman. Hadhe lived into his seventies, he might have been around for therenaissance of the old shows and s...
After watching this yesterday, I've reached the conclusion that thecritics and posters raving about this insipid mess were bought off! Badenough I was bored to tears, everyone in this "Chinatown" wanna-be werethe most thoroughly deplorable characters I've had the displeasure ofwasting two hours of m...
Its not impossible to be a clever writer of films today. But it is hardif you want to play with the noir genre. I've seen two recently thatknow what they are doing: "Brick" and "Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang." Thenotion of noir is so well developed now, it is hard to play with.There's a parallel in Jazz, I...
This careful, intelligent, and almost always underrated film from TVauteur Coulter is genuinely pleasing: Brody is dark and quirky, andLane's eminent talent and beauty emerge from beneath layers ofwrinkled, ultra-aging makeup. Surprisingly, I was even able to suppressmy sincere hatred of all things ...
I wish the filmmakers had spent more time on the life of George Reeves.Including his early years and the beginning of his career. Over halfthe movie seemed preoccupied with the skinny Detective Simo, played byBrody. His low rent life, and the second case he was investigating withthe crazy man who ul...
When I first began hearing about this movie, the premise, as Iunderstood it, was that George Reeves'apparent suicide was in fact amurder, heading into the movie with that in mind, I was a littlesurprised, although not terribly disappointed to find that this movieis less about a murder mystery and mo...
HOLLYWOODLAND When I first saw the trailer for HOLLYWOODLAND attached to DEVIL WEARSPRADA, I saw something that promised to be one of the most solidlystructure film noir mysteries one could expect. The trailer wasexciting, forcibly paced, featured interesting performances, had a nicevisual style, an...
HOLLYWOODLAND works superbly as a biopic, mystery, and poignant musingon appreciating what you have, not just spending all your time graspingfor more.After George Reeves (Ben Affleck) is found shot to death in his home,the police say it's suicide, but his grieving mom (Lois Smith) thinkshe's been mu...
