Martin Grant Pre-Fall 2018

Martin Grant just launched a capsule collection for men, so it was hardly surprising that his women’s pre-fall designs had an androgynous slant.
In fact, the designer only slightly tweaked some of his men’s styles — including a trouser suit and an oversize navy coat — to adapt them to the female form. Call it a 180-degree switch: It was his tuxedo design for French director Nicole Garcia that originally led to him creating a similar style for men.
Not that it really matters: Grant’s daywear has always been grounded in luxurious staples, such as this season’s check coat with a removable shearling collar, or a jumbo cord trench. “Quiet luxury — I mean, it’s very much about the fabrics, the textures, a very, very soft fabric feel,” he said of the collection.
A case in point was a fuzzy gray alpaca sweater that read like a very upscale spin on a sweatshirt. It came in a women’s size, but Grant suggested borrowing the men’s version for an even roomier fit. The more overtly feminine options were easy yet chic: lightweight denim pieces with topstitched details, a black jersey turtleneck dress and a cocoon-like camel cape coat.
Grant left the eveningwear for later: As

Martin Grant Leaps Into Men’s Wear Amid Shift in Collections Calendar

PARIS — Martin Grant, whose razor-sharp tailoring has earned him fans including Cate Blanchett and Jennifer Connelly, is launching a capsule collection for men as part of a broader plan to switch the focus away from his main women’s collection and toward the pre-collection seasons.
Grant is set to unveil the men’s line, featuring between 15 and 20 designs, during presentations at his Paris showroom between Jan. 17 and 24.
Starting in July, the Australian designer, whose last catwalk show was held in October 2015, will resume runway presentations during Paris Couture Week showcasing his men’s designs alongside his women’s pre-fall collections and a smattering of couture.
He will present a few additions to the pre-collection to coincide with the main women’s ready-to-wear shows in March and October, but will no longer produce separate collections. Grant said the decision made sense, as pre-collections now account for 80 percent of his business.
“Logistically it’s much better for us, because it’s what the buyers want anyhow,” he told WWD during an exclusive preview of the men’s collection. “They’re putting all of their budget into the pre-collections, because they need the time to sell. For us, concentrating on that season gives us a longer lead time to develop the

Gwyneth Paltrow, Ex Chris Martin and Rumored Fiancé Brad Falchuk Grab ‘Sunday Brunch’ Together

Exceptional exes.

On Sunday, Gwyneth Paltrow shared a photo of her ex-husband Chris Martin — whom she famously consciously un-coupled from in 2014 — hanging out with her rumored fiancé Brad Falchuk.

“Sunday brunch #modernfamily,” the 45-year-old Goop guru captioned the snap, in which both men were sitting together with big grins on their faces.

Although a rep for Paltrow has yet to comment on the supposed engagement, ET has reported that Falchuk popped the question a year ago.

While that’s a long time to keep a secret, it wouldn’t be the first time the couple has been private about their relationship. In fact, they dated for a year before going public at Robert Downey Jr.’s 50th birthday bash in April 2015.

RELATED: Who Is Brad Falchuk? 5 Things to Know About Gwyneth Paltrow’s Rumored Fiancé

A source close to the actress previously told PEOPLE that Paltrow was “crazy about Brad.” While the source went on to say that Paltrow is “cautious about marriage” and “very happy with how things are,” they added that it wasn’t “out of the question” for the couple to walk down the aisle in the future.

The actress first met the Glee co-creator when she guest-starred on the show back in 2010. The duo began dating after Paltrow split from the Coldplay frontman after 11 years of marriage. She shares two kids with the rocker — daughter Apple, 13, and son Moses, 11.

Falchuk, 46, has two children, Brody and Isabella, from his 10-year marriage to Suzanne Bukinik, which ended in a divorce filing in March 2013.

Jonathan Martin Line to Relaunch After Seven-Year Absence

Jonathan Martin, the printed top and dresses resource that had its heyday in the Eighties and Nineties, is returning to the market for spring after a seven-year absence.
Owner Uri Harkham, who founded the line in Los Angeles in 1975, said he spies a need in the better women’s market for office-appropriate tops and dresses featuring custom prints and treatments. In addition, he has launched a high-end Italian silk line called Hark + Hammer that sells pieces for $ 200 to $ 300 direct to consumers online.
“People say, ‘What are you, nuts? There’s no customer,’ but when we launched Jonathan Martin in ’75, people also thought we were nuts. But we found our niche and it was really a privilege to be in this industry. I think it’s still relevant,” said Harkham.
Meant to retail in major department stores for $ 49 to $ 79, Jonathan Martin features monthly deliveries of flutter-sleeve tops and wrap dresses with details like front-and-back embroidery and custom print borders. Harkham said the line will be available in a plus-size range and that he hopes to re-create the partnerships he had with retailers such as Lane Bryant.
“I believe we can still serve the market, so this is why I’m coming back.

Martin Grant Resort 2018

Martin Grant has come up with a solution for keeping armpits dry during a heat wave: air-conditioned sleeves.
Puff sleeves, leg-of-mutton arms and dropped armholes were just some of the hot-weather hacks the designer deployed in his resort collection, which featured breezy drawstring-collared blouses and cool djellaba styles that worked equally well for the beach and the city.
“I like the fact of mixing these ethnic influences with something that’s very clean and structured,” he said.
Grant worked with patterns including irregular stripes, dots and a coral-inspired print, the latter appearing on a belted black-and-white tunic dress. French workwear fabrics inspired a selection of outfits in light blue cotton poplin, including a wide-leg jumpsuit and a peasant blouse with puffed-up sleeves.
Eveningwear skewed toward Eighties styles, with items like cocktail dresses in mismatched polka dot patterns with major sleeve action. Grant also worked that voluminous shoulder into an emerald-green silk top that delivered climate control with a theatrical flourish.

Ricky Martin Joins The Cast Of Versace-Focused ‘American Crime Story’

Ricky Martin has just been cast in the third season of Ryan Murphy’s “American Horror Story” anthology series, which will focus on the assassination of fashion designer Gianni Versace

Martin will play Antonio D’Amico, Versace’s longtime partner, according to Cinema Blend. The singer has worked with Murphy before, appearing on his musical high school TV show “Glee” as a sexy Spanish teacher. 

The “She Bangs” singer joins the already impressive cast, which includes Édgar Rarmirez as Versace, Penélope Cruz as the designer’s sister Donatella and Darren Criss as the killer Andrew Cunanan. It’s been noted that Donatella isn’t a fan of D’Amico in real life, so it will be interesting to see how that plays into the storyline. (Maybe a “Feud” series with Cruz and Martin as Donatella and D’Amico should be next for Murphy?)

But before we get to see Martin in his role, we need to make it through Season 2 ― the follow-up to “The People v. O.J. Simpson.” The second season of the anthology series will focus on Hurricane Katrina and its devastating aftermath in New Orleans. Matthew Broderick and Annette Bening have already been cast. 

“Versace: American Crime Story” will reportedly begin shooting something this month and is expected to air in 2018, shortly after “Katrina.”

Max Mara Joins Shantell Martin for Limited-Edition Sunglass Range

ART IN MOTION: Max Mara opened the doors of its Rue Saint-Honoré boutique in Paris on Thursday evening to celebrate the launch of its limited-edition Prism in Motion collection of sunglasses, created in collaboration with artist Shantell Martin.
Martin, whose signature is stream-of-consciousness works in black marker pen on white canvas, created a tableau especially for the brand featuring circles, lines, squares and written messages.
“I did the initial drawing with this 3-D tool I made that allows you to draw with more than one pen at a time; I like that there’s a little bit of technology behind the fashion,” said Martin. “The inspiration was mainly motion and seeds in the form of positive messages.”
The work was then digitally reproduced and divided into 1,000 different pieces, which were reproduced on cat’s eye-shaped sunglasses, making each pair unique.
The eyewear, manufactured under license by Safilo Group, went on sale in a handful of Max Mara’s flagships on March 2, and a few pairs are also available to buy online.
Guests at the event included actresses Gabrielle Lazure, Audrey Fleurot and Inès Sastre and perfumer Kilian Hennessy.

Steve Martin Deletes Carrie Fisher Tribute After Backlash

Steve Martin’s tribute to the late Carrie Fisher did not sit well with some. 

The actor tweeted about Fisher, whom he called a friend, following the news that the “Star Wars” actress died Tuesday after suffering a heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles last week. 

New York Magazine noted that Martin’s tweet focused on her physicality, rather than her talents. The actor ultimately deleted the tweet following the backlash. 

While some thought criticism of Martin was unjustified, others said Fisher ― a staunch feminist who spoke out against the objectification of women throughout her career ― wouldn’t have paid any mind to the “whiny dudes” getting mad over the clap-backs. 

A rep for Martin was not immediately available for further comment.

Martin Greenfield Files Lawsuit Against Brooks Brothers

There’s a bespoke battle brewing.
Martin Greenfield Clothiers Ltd. has filed a breach-of-contract lawsuit against Brooks Brothers, charging that the retailer broke its manufacturing agreement with the Brooklyn-based tailor for its Golden Fleece made-to-measure collection.
According to a suit filed in the Supreme Court of the State of New York in Kings County on Monday, Brooks Brothers unilaterally terminated its exclusive manufacturing agreement with Martin Greenfield on Nov. 1, 2014, “without adhering to the one-year notice of termination stipulated in the agreement.”
As a result, the lawsuit alleges, Greenfield sustained significant loss of revenue and other costs, “such as inability to notify its union labor force of the changed circumstances and reduce its manufacturing capability, as well as seek other work to meet its expenses.”
The suit is seeking $ 1.9 million in compensatory damages, lost revenue and other damages, according to Mark E. Seitelman, Greenfield’s attorney.
In response to a request for comment, Brooks Brothers said: “We do not comment on legal matters.”
According to Seitelman, after Brooks Brothers purchased the Southwick manufacturing facility in Massachusetts in 2007, it made clear that it eventually intended to bring the manufacturing in-house. However, the plant was not ready and so Brooks Brothers continued to work with Greenfield on

Martin Shkreli Finally Shared The Secret Wu-Tang Clan Album

Martin Shkreli, the former Turing Pharmaceuticals CEO who famously increased the price of a pill used by HIV patients from $ 13.50 to $ 750, shared part of the secret Wu-Tang Clan album “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin” to the world over Periscope on Wednesday. Then he deleted the video. 

Shkreli, a questionable human being who was arrested late last year over securities fraud allegations, purchased the sole copy of the album last year for $ 2 million, and then didn’t let anyone hear it. But in October, he promised via Twitter that he would share the album if Donald Trump won the presidential election, which the then–Republican nominee did early Wednesday morning.  

And so it was that Martin Shkreli “shared” the secret Wu-Tang Clan album. Though he subsequently deleted the video, some people ripped it and then uploaded it to YouTube and Streamable, so here you go:

For her first outing under the label LaDoubleJ Editions, she opted for a short-sleeved A-line style that hits just above the ankle, available in eight archival patterns dating from the 1910s to the Eighties.
“I’m a big maximalist. I love print, I love pattern, but I think you kind of need it in really simple lines,” said Martin, sporting one of her own creations in a bold pattern called Confetti.
“Basically, what we wanted to do was create the easiest, most fail-safe silhouette that literally looks good on every woman, and you’ll have no problems with those areas that every woman is concerned about: the hips, the butt, the stomach. You can have as much dinner as you want, you still fit in the dress,” she added.
Available exclusively on her Web site, LaDoubleJ.com, and Matchesfashion.com, the dresses retail for $ 480. Further collections are already in the works.

Chris Martin Performed Coldplay Song At Beau Biden’s Funeral

Chris Martin paid tribute to Vice President Joe Biden’s son Beau Biden, who died of brain cancer last week, during his funeral Saturday.

Martin volunteered to perform at Biden’s funeral service in Wilmington, Delaware, when he found out that the former Delaware attorney general was a big Coldplay fan, according to a White House official. Martin performed an acoustic version of Coldplay’s “Til Kingdom Come” near the end of the service. Afterwards, Martin hugged the vice president and his wife, Jill Biden.

Earlier during the ceremony, President Barack Obama gave an emotional eulogy, praising the former attorney general. “Beau Biden was an original,” Obama said at the St. Anthony of Padua Roman Catholic Church. “He was a good man, a man of character, a man who loved deeply and was loved in return.”

Joseph “Beau” Biden III was first diagnosed with brain cancer in 2013, three years after suffering a minor stroke. He died at age 46.

Martin Limited Edition HSMD Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar, Sitka Pruce w/HMS Design, High Gloss Finish

Martin Limited Edition HSMD Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar, Sitka Pruce w/HMS Design, High Gloss Finish


This Limited Edition model features an HMS Dreadnought printed on a Sitka spruce top with Martin’s Vintage Tone System (VTS). The HMS Dreadnought was the largest battleship of the British Royal Navy and serves as the inspiration behind the name of the Dreadnought sized guitar. Other features of this 12-fret Dreadnought model include genuine mahogany back and sides, East Indian rosewood headplate and a black ebony fingerboard and bridge. This guitar is truly a unique instrument that will be cherished by guitar enthusiasts for years to come. The new Martin Vintage Tone System (VTS) uses a unique recipe that is based on the historic torrefaction system.

What Martin Luther King, Jr. Was Like In College (VIDEO)

Martin Luther King, Jr. is one of the most important figures in American history, but only a relatively small circle of people really knew him. Among them was the now-86-year-old Lerone Bennett, Jr., who attended Morehouse College with King in the 1940s. Bennett, who later became an author, journalist and historian, appeared on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” in 1989 along with several other of King’s close friends and opened up about what the civil rights leader was like before the rest of the world knew his name.

“I was a freshman. M.L., as we called him then, was a sophomore. He was an upperclassman, he didn’t talk to freshman back then,” Bennett joked on “The Oprah Show.”

Soon enough, the two became friends. Though he mentioned that King was, of course, a serious and brilliant student, Bennett also said that his friend had a more playful side that the public never truly saw.

“He was a lot of fun! He wore a great big, big-apple hat and draped pants,” Bennett said. “He was, in short, not the M.L. — the Martin — of history.”

This comment prompted Oprah to share a conversation she’d had with Maya Angelou about why it was so important to hear these lesser-known personal stories about great and prominent figures. “[Maya] was saying that oftentimes in history, we take heroes and we make them totally unreal to the children,” Oprah said. “She said one of the wonderful things about Dr. King was his sense of humor. And nobody ever talks about his sense of humor. So I’m glad to know he wore the big-apple hat!”

“He had a great sense of humor,” Bennett nods.

So, was it obvious to friends back then that this fun, brilliant man would become somebody of great importance? Yes and no…

“It was obvious that he was going to become a successful person. People who attend that school with M.L. will often ask, ‘Did you know then that he was going to turn the world upside down?'” Bennett says. “There’s an official answer to that, and there’s the truth. The official answer is, ‘Yes, of course we knew. Who do you think we were? Fools?’ The real answer is that we did not know then that he was going to turn the world upside down.

“The moral I draw from that is, I think, the best of all,” Bennett continues. “And that [is this]: There’s no way to tell about the mystery of the human personality. And that the next Martin Luther King, Jr., he or she may be sitting next to you.”

God Told David Oyelowo He Would Play Martin Luther King, But He Didn’t Stop There

David Oyelowo hasn’t been shy about discussing how God spoke to him in 2007 and said the actor would eventually play Martin Luther King Jr. in what would become “Selma.”

“The reason I’m talking about that is because I’m as shocked as anyone else may be that this British guy is playing Martin Luther King,” Oyelowo, who was born in England, said during a recent interview. “Certainly back then, in 2007, I had done none of the movies people have now seen me do now.”

At the time, Oyelowo — who has since starred in “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” “Jack Reacher,” “The Help” and “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” — was a relative unknown. But it was another obstacle separating him from King that proved more difficult to overcome: Stephen Frears. Back then, the director was attached to “Selma” and didn’t think Oyelowo was right for the part. In the ensuing seven years, however, Frears left and multiple directors nearly stepped into his place (including Spike Lee and Paul Haggis). In 2010, Lee Daniels came onboard and, after working with Oyelowo on”Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” cast the actor as King. The tumultuous development process didn’t end there: Daniels dropped out because of scheduling conflicts. That’s when Oyelowo suggested another former collaborator: Ava DuVernay, with whom Oyelowo had made the 2012 indie film “Middle of Nowhere.”

“There was so much faith that had to be employed that this thing was going to happen,” Oyelowo said. “Virtually every day between that moment [when God spoke] to me and now, I did everything I could to make this thing happen.”

Now that it has, Oyelowo has received the best reviews of his career for playing King. The performance earned him a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama, and it has Oyelowo in the middle of a crowded group of contenders vying for an Oscar nomination. “Selma,” meanwhile, stands as one of the year’s best films, a timely and insightful drama that says as much about Martin Luther King’s struggle to get equal voting rights in 1965 as it does about the Millions March in 2014.

Oyelowo spoke to HuffPost Entertainment about “Selma,” working with DuVernay and what it was like to meet King’s children.

You’ve talked about hearing a higher calling to play this role all the way back in 2007. Does that kind of connection with God extend through the production as well?
What I couldn’t have anticipated is how much I needed, to be perfectly frank, God’s help in the playing of it. Not least because this was a man of God. This was someone, if you’ve seen him giving those speeches, there is something flowing through him other than himself. He is flowing in his anointing. I needed that. I like to think of myself as a good actor, but Martin Luther King, I ain’t! If you’re going to go and shoot in Atlanta, in a historical church, with 500 people who are from Atlanta, you need a little help from above. So I definitely felt I had that.

Watch Oyelowo in an exclusive clip from “Selma”



During that seven year period from when you first read the script and now, was playing Dr. King something you thought about every day, or is that impossible?
The first thing I can say to you is that it’s very possible to think about playing Martin Luther King every single day for seven years. I’m living evidence of that. There is never going to be a time in your life as an actor where you’re going to go, “Oh yeah, I’m ready to play Dr. King now.” But between doing the work in quiet and then, the films that presented themselves to me, I prepared. Playing a Union solider in “Lincoln,” playing a preacher in “The Help,” playing a black fighter pilot in “Red Tails,” playing the son of a butler in “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” who is in the Freedom Riders and becomes a Black Panther: these were all films in which I had to go study the history. Inevitably they were part of what informed playing Dr. King. Now, were they opportunities that were divinely presented to me or was I just continually drawn to that material because of what was going on in my head? That I can’t really say. But I do know that so many different aspects of my life went into what you see in the film. Plus, I was now the age Dr. King was when these things happened in his life. When I first read the script, I had two kids; when we shot it, I had four kids, like he did. There were so many things I matured into by the time I played the role.

Dr. King is, relatively speaking, a young man during the events of “Selma,” but he looks 10-15 years older than his actual age. How did you manage the physical transformation this role required?
Again, we’re back to the spiritual side of things. People like to talk about the weight gain and the voice, but that’s what we do as actors; that’s the first rung of what you need to do if you’re going to play someone like this. But it was the emotional and spiritual weight of what this man did and had to go through that was tough. At that stage in his life, to have spent 10 years under threat — and not only his life, but his kids’ lives, his wife’s life. Having all these people depend on him. Being a voice for the voiceless. Being someone who has seen people die because of this cause. And not just because racist people have killed them, but because he went to places where he tried to have racists act out in front of the cameras, and then people get hurt. In Selma, people died. That weighs on you. If you’re mentally placing yourself in that space, it does something to you physically. When I watch him, you can see there is a burden. You can see that he looks and feels older than he was. He was 36 at this stage. That is crazy. That had to be one of the things I tried to bring to it.

You recommended Ava to direct this film. Having worked with her on “Middle of Nowhere,” what surprised you about her transition to this kind of bigger material?
When we worked together on “Middle Of Nowhere” I saw her talent is undeniable. One of the privileges I’ve had in doing some of those films I mentioned is working with Steven Spielberg and other incredible directors. I was on the set with Ava, and she is just as good. I think the unique thing about her — and what she brought to “Selma” that was so incredible — was the ease with which she went into a film that was 100 times the budget of the last thing she had done. There were so many more people, so many more elements, it was much bigger in size, but she never panicked. She never shouted. She never threw a chair. She never compromised her vision. That went through the post-production side of things as well. To be a visionary, you have to be single minded. She has that without being, to be perfectly honest, an unpleasant person. That’s very rare! Often being single-minded is combined with being a bit of a nightmare to be around. She’s just not that.

It’s impossible to discuss “Selma” without mentioning how timely it is in its scenes of protest and police brutality. How do you think “Selma” fits in with the events that have occurred over the last month?
Well, we’re back to the divide, aren’t we? If you were ever going to have a moment in time when this film should come out in the 50 years since these events happened, it would be now. Not only would it be now, it would be now now. It would be this month. We would be having this conversation today. You can’t tell me between everything we’ve discussed already to when the film is being released to the fact that it’s a black woman who has made this — just in terms of where we are in history and how beautiful a thing that is — that it’s not divine timing. Whether you believe in that stuff or not, I truly believe the reason why this film is so pertinent for right now is that it shows this isn’t the first time. It shows that we are not a new generation for this and also how it was successfully dealt with. Peaceful protest. Strategy. Using the power of the image to bring the world together. That’s what happened in a sense.

Ferguson, I feel, was deemed a “black problem.” Eric Garner became an American problem. That’s the power of the image. Seeing him murdered onscreen has been the thing that has brought America and the world together to protest. Seeing Bloody Sunday on the Edmund Pettus Bridge is what brought the nation together, black and white, in 1965. The difference is that was about voting rights, and this is about police reform. There had to be federal intervention with voting rights; the federal government is stalling on intervening on this, to bring in independent bodies to police the police. It’s just clear that’s what is needed. No matter what they say about how difficult that is because it’s states’ rights. It was states’ rights with voting. It’s crazy how similar it is.

Did you get to meet anyone close to Dr. King in preparation for the role?
I met every one of his children and spoke with them. I actually became quite friendly with Dexter Scott King, his second son. I met Martin Luther King III. I actually didn’t meet Bernice King until the Friday before we were going to start shooting. I bumped into her at the King Center, if you would believe it — again, the divine! I was with a group of the actors who were going to be in the film, and she went up to everyone, deliberately leaving me to last. “So, who you playing?” she said. I was like, “Oh. My. Lord.” Dr. King’s voice is pretty deep, but I was like, in a high-pitched voice, “I’m going to be playing your daddy.” It was as bad as it could be. But by the time we finished our conversation, she ended up praying with me and giving me her blessing to play her dad. She and her elder brother saw the film recently and were very complimentary about it. She said mine is the best interpretation of her dad she’s seen. I will take it.

After seven years of having this role in your life, did you feel any letdown or hangover after you moved on to the next job?
There was no letdown. I was very happy to let this guy go. I wouldn’t say it was a burden, because I felt so privileged to do it, but there were moments where it was a real crossover. I stayed in character for the three months we were doing this. I, for one second, wouldn’t say I was him for that time, but I felt a little bit of what it may have been like. Just because you have to take it on. He lived through 13 years of that. I was very happy to walk away. I tell you that much.

‘Sherlock’ Review: ‘The Empty Hearse’ Finds An Emotional Reunion For Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman In Long-Awaited Return

The most highly-awaited show of the year returned, and within one sharp, mind-boggling minute in the company of Sherlock and Co, it was all explained away… apparently.

We had a far-fetched (but possible!) combination of bungee rope, a Sherlock mask over a Moriarty body, a big grateful kiss for enamoured lab assistant Molly… oh, and Derren Brown???? Hang on a minute!

Ah, that’ll be one big nod to the conspiracy theorists everywhere, then. No one listens to their fans like writers Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat, and plays with them a little in return. According to Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock on the roof, there are 13 possible outcomes in total. So looks like we might have to wait for the truth for a bit longer after all…

sherlock

Sherlock’s return was greeted with a welcome less warm than he would have perhaps liked

Cut to… Gatiss as weary Mycroft having to tap some numbers into his international speed-dial, brush up his Serbian, engage in some tiresome ‘field work’ to locate his errant little brother, and return him to his Baker Street fold.

And that, expectant viewers, was very much that. Two years’ worth of all our wondering, tucked into a drawer for the time being. Onward…

sherlock

Mary (Amanda Abbington) had (almost) replaced Sherlock in Doctor Watson’s affections, but proved crucial to the restoration of their bromance

Into the up-to-date world of Dr Watson (Martin Freeman), complete with fiancee Mary (Freeman’s real-life partner Amanda Abbington) and moustache, moving on with his life, much to the surprise of Mrs Hudson (Una Stubbs) – “So soon after Sherlock?” she asked guilelessly.

But this was a light appetiser for the serious business of his reunion with the much-missed Holmes who, despite his big brain, managed to misjudge such concepts as how grief can turn to resentment when it turns out to be misplaced for two sad, lonely years. Sherlock got a much warmer reception even from DI Lestrade (Rupert Graves), and that was even after Holmes got his name wrong.

sherlock

Benedict Cumberbatch was on fine form as the loner detective

Fortunately for fans, it wasn’t too long before Holmes and Watson were reconciled to combat an underground terrorism network operating on the underground network. From then on, it was all torches in dark tunnels, upturned collars and lots and lots of nifty editing as Holmes homed in on quite a bit of a bomb, and Watson continued to prove his peerless Everyman acting stripes, equal parts confusion, good intention, and deep indignation when said bomb turned out to have an off-switch. That Sherlock fella, eh? Such a wag.

Because of all of Watson’s understandable, brooding resentment for much of the 90 minutes, a lot of the real pleasure in this episode in fact came from the jollier exchanges between the Holmes brothers, with both siblings proving that absence makes the heart grow more competitive… who can deduce more accurately? Who can say more more words in one minute? Who can enunciate more c-c-r-r-i-sply? Wonderful stuff from both Cumberbatch and Gatiss.

A challenge to keep up with, a joy to watch – there’s a reason this kind of telly takes two years to make. But oh, how we’ve missed it, and oh, how it was worth the wait.

How DID he do it? Let us know your thoughts below, and what you thought of Sherlock’s big return…

MEXICAN DIRECTOR AMAT ESCALANTE SPEAKS ABOUT BEING ON MARTIN SCORSESE’S JURY IN MARRAKECH

“I came because of Martin Scorsese,” Mexican director Amat Escalante said, explaining his reason for accepting a position as member of the jury at the Marrakesh International Film Festival, which will choose the winning Competition film this evening.

Escalante, the winner of the Best Director award at Cannes last season, was delighted that Martin Scorsese, president of the jury, had seen and liked two of his films, and moreover, seemed to know them “in photographic detail,” discussing them shot for shot with the younger director here in Marrakech. It was an honor to receive such enthusiastic appraisal from an esteemed veteran like Scorsese, Escalante told us.

“Being on the jury with Scorsese is great,” he added. “He is a good listener. He listens openly to our opinions. Listening to him discuss the films, I learn a lot too.”

It was also interesting to be on this jury for Escalante because everyone has “their own opinion, their own criteria. A film will touch one jury member for personal reasons, but not another.”

2013-12-07-bamat1.JPG

What were Escalante’s own criteria for choosing a good film?

“I like a film that will take me forwards and keep my interest, make me curious about what will happens next. I like a film with suspense.”

In his own films, he noted, he makes an effort “to make exceptional things happen—like people dying”—since “reality can be pretty boring.” Escalante’s own favorite movies are genre films, like Westerns and horror flicks.

Does it ever get stressful, trying to come up with a consensus with ten people?

“No,” laughed Escalante. “It’s after all just a movie.”

As for trends that Escalante–who has been on five juries in the last couple years—sees in contemporary films, he joked: “Well, there is a lot of vomit. Yellow vomit even.”

But on a more serious note, Escalante pointed out that social issues were at the forefront of the films he has seen.

His own masterful film Heli, which earned him Best Director award at Cannes, is the story of vulnerable bystanders getting in the way of a drug cartel in Mexico, with a much discussed graphic torture scene at the climax, including a penis burnt to a crisp. The film, he told us now, has been very appreciated in Mexico, as Mexicans know the reality of which the film speaks.

“Are you as hopeless about the future as your film?” a journalist asked.

“No,” Escalante leaned forward. ” Everything can change. It can change in Mexico. What is frustrating is that change is not allowed. The media has numbed and stupefied everybody so they will follow governmental orders. Two channels in Mexico basically control the country: control who will run for president, what people are going to buy. Even soap operas deliver messages. For example, now the president wants to privatize gas. So we have a soap opera star talking about how it would be good to sell petrol. If Mexico could be liberated from this media control, that would be a revolution.”
