Penny Dreadful – The Séance

Talk about a slow burn. Penny Dreadful has one of the most interesting narratives of any TV show I’ve ever seen. Based on the pilot alone, it is clear that the destination is not what’s important with this show, but rather the journey instead. Penny Dreadful takes its sweet time getting to the point, and at first I was a little bored but after a while I became mesmerized by how beautiful it was. That pretty much changed after the second episode, appropriately titled Séance. If Eva Green doesn’t get an Emmy nomination next year (and let’s face it, she probably won’t) it will be a sad day for TV indeed. All of the performances are top notch, but Green nearly steals every scene she is in. Her tour de force performance in the second episode involves her character becoming possessed at the titular event and it’s phenomenal.

Mo, you have already chimed in for Penny Dreadful, but I want to chime in particularly for Eva Green. She plays Vanessa Ives, a woman with a traumatic past and a penchant for communing with spirits. Late in the season she became possessed, and not by some semi-friendly neighborhood spirit. Ives’ possession looked painful, brutal, and physically taxing. Green threw her body around with convincing abandon and was even scarier when she opened her mouth. (I will say, Mo, that I found Reeve Carney as Dorian Grey, his kissing abilities aside, to be a total bore—a handsome dull patch.) Prior to Penny Dreadful, I always thought of Green as the best-ever Bond girl. That may be a debate for another club, but it speaks to the regularity with which Green toggles between small and silver screens.

Penny Dreadful – “Closer Than Sisters”

Eva Green should be getting some awards recognition for her work on Showtime’s Penny Dreadful.  Want to see why?  All you have to do is watch episode 5, “Closer Than Sisters.”  It was pretty clear that she was going to own the show after the seance scene in episode 2, but “Closer Than Sisters” isn’t just a standout installment because of one mind-blowing moment.  Green nails a drastic single-episode arc that takes Vanessa from a bright, kind young woman to one plagued by demons and darkness.  “Closer Than Sisters” functions as a brilliant character piece and standalone episode, but it was also a major game changer for the rest of the show.  Whether you’re watching a scene between Vanessa and Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton) or one during which she’s exploring her budding romance with Dorian Grey (Reeve Carney), it all comes back to what she experienced in this episode. – Perri Nemiroff

Seven drops that count….

NEGRONI

Florence, 1919. It is said that, on his return from England, Count Camillo Negroni asked his favourite bar to prepare his usual Americano with seven drops of gin instead of soda. A legend was born and still continues strong today.

 

In case you missed it, here’s Eva Green and Campari wishing you A Happy New Year!

Eva Green

Her magnetic allure is the key to her inscrutable sensuality. She’s gorgeous, fragile, and utterly irresistible

 

You needed a really special woman to irremediably break James Bond’s heart: an inscrutable woman able to convey contrasting sentiments such as fragility, determination, fear, sensuality, desperation and mystery with just a glance. That would be Eva Green, the actress who played Vesper Lynd, the great love of Daniel Craig’s 007. Hers is not a stage name, but she followed in the footsteps of her mother, the French actress Marlène  Jobert. “In the beginning, my mother kept telling me not to choose this career because it is a cruel world and I’m very fragile. Perhaps I was also afraid of being compared to her, not only in terms of a mother-daughter relationship, but also on a professional level.” When you meet Eva for the first time, you are struck by her beauty and by her magnetic allure, those slightly guarded smoky eyes, dusky voice, and disarming shyness. “I know I’m vulnerable, extremely shy and insecure. I feel I can only truly express myself when I’m acting.”

Discovered by Bernardo Bertolucci, who launched her in the film The Dreamers in 2003, Eva became internationally famous with Casino Royale. It was, in a certain sense, an opportunity that turned out to be a mixed blessing. It made her one of the most famous and unforgettable Bond girls, but it also transformed her, despite herself, into the femme fatale archetype that every director wants. That is why she is twice as happy today to be the heroine of the action fantasy flick 300 – Rise of an Empire. In it, she is Artemisia, the warrior queen thirsting for revenge. It is a very virile and physical role. “I like having to handle a sword and fight like a man. What girl wouldn’t be happy to be a man for at least one day?” But that was just an interlude because Eva has gone back to being the dark, sensual, and enigmatic actress that we were accustomed to seeing on the screen. Whether it is on TV, with the series Penny Dreadful where she is Vanessa Ives, an unsettling girl from a good family possessed by evil spirits in Victorian London, or in the movies as Ava Lord, “the dame to kill for” in the next Sin City, Eva is quite the irresistible femme fatale.

Let’s talk about your latest, very exciting, project – the television series Penny Dreadful. How did you get involved?

This is a good question. I’m not quite sure. It was the fortunate turn of events that Showtime approached me with an offer to write the score. Not the opposite, as it usually happens. There were apparently a few people who recommended me. Firstly, John Logan, the writer and creator of Penny Dreadful, knew and appreciated my work. Secondly, it was Juan Antonio Bayona who directed and shaped the series. Eva Green would play my music on the set, while they were shooting. She was a great ambassador (for my music).

I got invited to Dublin for meetings with Bayona, Logan and Eva Green. It was a great feeling, that my music was expected and requested. Also, seeing all the sets, built with such astonishing level of detail, was really a great experience.

White Bird in a Blizzard will be shown during BFI’s London Film Festival next month which runs between October 8-19.

  • Director Gregg Araki
  • Producers Pascal Caucheteux, Sebastien K. Lemercier, Alix Madigan-Yorkin, Pavlina Hatoupis
  • Screenwriter Gregg Araki
  • With Shailene Woodley, Eva Green, Christopher Meloni, Gabourey Sidibe
  • USA 2014
  • 90 mins
  • UK distribution Altitude Film Distribution

As soon as the Cocteau Twins’ shoegazing ‘Sea Swallow Me’ kicks in over the luminous haze of the opening credits, it’s clear we’re in Gregg Araki territory, and with his latest creation the New Queer Cinema alumna continues to explore his favourite obsessions; sex, mortality and adolescence. An impressionistic adaptation of Laura Kasischke’s novel, the film follows Kat, a sexually adventurous teen dealing with the fallout from her mother’s unexplained disappearance. Battling her own teenage crises, Kat must make sense of her broken family, and face the dark realities that exist at its core. Styled with a dreamy sense of hyper-reality, and featuring a deliciously unhinged performance from Eva Green, White Bird in a Blizzard is every bit as formally exciting as we would expect from Araki, and every bit as rebellious in its examination of the agonies and ecstasies of young adulthood.

– Michael Blyth

Here’s the screening schedule during the festival:

  • Oct 16, 2014 9:00 PM
  • Vue West End Cinema, Screen 5
  • Oct 18, 2014 1:00 PM
  • Hackney Picturehouse, Screen 1
