Netflix isn’t having a really great 2022, so far. The company has been hampered by slow growth and a stock valuation that greatly declined. And because of this, folks in Hollywood are wondering what’s going to happen next? Will Netflix continue to champion auteur-driven cinema as it has in the past or will it focus solely on four-quadrant blockbusters and comedies?

‘Jane Campion: The Cinema Woman’: Film Review | Cannes 2022

In 2007, to celebrate its 60th anniversary, the Cannes Film Festival commissioned an omnibus film, inviting 36 filmmakers to contribute three-minute shorts to Chacun Son Cinema (To Each His Own Cinema). There was one woman among them: Jane Campion. She had the same distinction, as sole representative of her gender, in a ceremony that year feting the directors of past Palme d’Or winners.

At a festival press conference,...

Elisabeth Moss Talks Missing Out On ‘The Power Of The Dog’ & Hoping To Reunite With Jane Campion

When Jane Campion returned with 2021’s Oscar-nominated “The Power Of The Dog,” there was much talk about the New Zealand filmmaker’s return and her 12-year absence from feature filmmaking. However, often missing in that narrative was the fact that Campion never went anywhere. All she did was pivot to television and two seasons of “Top Of The Lake” (2013 and then 2017), so acclaimed and anticipated at the time, it was invited to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival and is largely regarded as some of the best TV of the decade. Of course, the star of both those seasons was Elisabeth Moss.

Sam Elliott Apologizes to Jane Campion, Benedict Cumberbatch for ‘Power of the Dog’ Comments
