Diana Kennedy: Nothing Fancy (Elizabeth Carroll)

If certain reality shows and Netflix series focused on cooking don’t exactly give a strong sense of the person behind the culinary prowess, a new documentary satisfies that aspect. Diana Kennedy, the U.K.-born, Mexico-based chef, is an expert in the cooking culture of where she has made her life, and this new documentary captures her irascible spirit. With a genuine desire to know the people around her and the ingredients that go into their meals, the 97-year-old also freely speakers her mind, to say the least. From berating people at her cooking class to responding, “I know,

‘Diana Kennedy: Nothing Fancy’ Review: A Flavorful Character Study of a Culinary Sage

‘Diana Kennedy: Nothing Fancy’ Review: A Flavorful Character Study of a Culinary Sage
She’s been called “the Indiana Jones of food,” “the Mick Jagger of Mexico,” and “the grand dame of Mexican cooking.” Observing the fervor with which chef Diana Kennedy barrels down the dirt roads of Michoacán in her white Nissan pickup truck, it’s not hard to see why the sprightly 95-year-old has earned such esteemed admirers, from the likes of Alice Waters, José Andrés, and Craig Claiborne. Kennedy’s no-nonsense attitude, passionate takes on everything from sex to sustainability, and encyclopedic knowledge of regional Mexican cuisine make her a perfect documentary subject. With director Elizabeth Carroll as skilled sous-chef, “Diana Kennedy: Nothing Fancy”

Borrowing its title from one of her nine classic cookbooks, “Nothing Fancy” presents Kennedy’s life at an engaging but thorough pace. Born in England in 1923, Kennedy moved to Mexico in 1957 after meeting her late husband, New York Times Latin America correspondent Paul Kennedy, during a military coup in Port-au-Prince.

Top 50 Most Viewed Us YouTube Channels • Week Of 4/27/2020

Top 50 Most Viewed Us YouTube Channels • Week Of 4/27/2020
In the latest edition of our Us-only Tubefilter top 50, there was only one newcomer to the top five, but an historic concert left an imprint further down the list. Meanwhile, the chart is still topped by a major producer of content for children, and it doesn't seem as if it will relinquish that hold anytime soon.

Chart Toppers

Cocomelon - Nursery Rhymes crossed the 900 million view threshold this week, picking up 905.6 million hits across a span of just seven days. The family-friendly destination has been the most-viewed American YouTube channel throughout the entire month of April, and no other contender is particularly close to ending that run of dominance. Kids Diana Show, the #2 finisher in this week's Us chart, received 583.5 million views, less than two-thirds of Cocomelon's seven-day total.

Last week's starred-and-striped runner-up, Like Nastya, dropped to #3; the vlog, which is aimed at young children, scored 574.9 million views over the measured period.

Top 50 Most Viewed YouTube Channels Worldwide • Week Of 4/20/2020

Top 50 Most Viewed YouTube Channels Worldwide • Week Of 4/20/2020
The top 50 most viewed YouTube channels of the week still include more hubs from India than from any other country, but for the fifth week in a row, it is an American channel that has claimed the top spot in our chart. Led by a Californian children's studio, the upper echelon of our ranking was mostly unchanged, with only two channels flip-flopping their positions in the top five.

Chart Toppers

Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes received nearly three million more views this week than it did last week. While that would represent a massive upward trend for most channels on YouTube, it is just a drop in the bucket for the children's animation juggernaut. The 837 million views Cocomelon received this week doesn't even register as a 1% increase over the 834.2 million views it picked up in our previous chart period. Meanwhile, former chart topper T-Series remains in the #2 position, though it crossed back

  • Variety
Geraldine Gonard’s Inside Content has picked up international sales rights to Spaniard Alejo Moreno’s thriller “Diana,” an entry in the First Fiction Films competition at the 42nd Montreal World Film Festival.

Written, directed and produced by Moreno, “Diana” is an intimate and minimalist film that combines a extreme love story with a financial fraud, against the backdrop of the recent economic crisis.

“Diana” unspools in a Madrid apartment, Sofía, a deluxe call girl played by Spanish actress Ana Rujas (“Toxic Love”) receives a new client, a successful businessman called Jano -who introduces himself as Hugo. He glimpses the name Diana tattooed on her leg.

New Trailer and Poster for Royal Biopic 'Diana' Starring Naomi Watts

Before the biopic Diana hits theaters here in the United States, it will debut overseas, but the word from the title princess' homeland hasn't been all that favorable. Some reviews have called the film "terrible and tacky" and "a right royal mess." We're hoping that maybe the lead performance from Naomi Watts at least gives audiences something to latch onto. While we're waiting for the release, here's a new theatrical trailer for the film from Downfall director Oliver Hirschbiegel. We'll admit the film looks a little formualic and melodramatic, but when it comes to the royal family, people just eat this kind of story up. Watch it below! Here's the new trailer for Oliver Hirschbiegel's Diana, originally from Yahoo: And here's the first poster for the film courtesy of Entertainment Weekly: Diana, originally Caught in Flight, is directed by German filmmaker Oliver Hirschbiegel (The Experiment, Downfall, The Invasion) described

Naveen Andrews preferred 'Caught In Flight' to 'Diana'

Naveen Andrews preferred 'Caught In Flight' to 'Diana'
Los Angeles, Sep 8: Actor Naveen Andrews thinks "Caught In Flight", the original title for new biopic "Diana", was a more fitting name for the movie.

The 44-year-old portrays Hasnat Khan, the former lover of the late Princess Diana, in the biopic which focuses on the last two years of the royal's life before her tragic death in August 1997, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

When quizzed on why the title was changed, Andews told Bang Showbiz: "I preferred 'Caught In Flight'! I personally don't know why it was changed. I always thought in the way the film was structured - it's about the last two years of her life - the original.

Watch: New International Trailer for 'Diana,' Starring Naomi Watts as Princess
A new international trailer for Oliver Hirschbiegel's "Diana," starring Naomi Watts as Princess Diana, has landed. The Japanese trailer gives us more of a sense of Watts' earnest performance (she's also a ringer for the Princess); the previous trailer was without dialogue.The jury is out on whether new distrib Entertainment One, which has more of an established presence in Canada than it does stateside, can make a significant Oscar push for the film (specifically a Best Actress play for Watts). She is the one who made the decision to go with them based on their pitch at Cannes. "Diana" is premiering at the Zurich Film Festival, but no word on it showing up at any of the major fall fests (Toronto, Venice, Nyff) that usually feed the Oscar beast. Especially with such a long road through the awards season, there seems to be a growing resistance to doing

We've already seen the pics, as well as a brief teaser, of Naomi Watts' amazing transformation into Princess Diana for the upcoming biopic Diana. Now comes the film's first full international trailer, which essentially proves she was the right actress to play the part of the People's Princess. Sure, upon watching the clip, it certainly seems as if the movie will do a pretty thorough job when it comes to focusing on Diana's romantic relationship with heart surgeon Dr. Hasnat Khan. But it's also quite the showcase for Watts' enormous talents. Then again, when are any of her films not? In this case, however, the two-time Oscar nominee appears to have outdone herself. It's a...

Ghost of Diana returns in biopic starring Naomi Watts

Ghost of Diana returns in biopic starring Naomi Watts
So far all we have seen is a one-minute trailer of film detailing Princess Diana's final years, but the awestruck tone is obvious

She is back. The ghost of Diana Spencer is back. A one-minute trailer has been released online, promoting a biopic directed by Olivier Hirschbiegel, about the last years of Princess Diana's life before the fatal 1997 car crash in Paris. It avowedly concentrates on her landmine removal charity work, her painful affair with surgeon Dr Hasnat Khan, and of course her persecution by the paparazzi. Naomi Watts stars as Diana, with her blonde hair fiercely styled and what looks like a nasal prosthesis in place.

It is impossible to tell what a film is really going to be like from a trailer, but here the awestruck tone is obvious. This account of Diana's final lonely years is unlikely to be subversive or controversial – although it is

Naomi Watts Joins 'St. Vincent De Van Nuys' With Bill Murray, Chris O’Dowd & Melissa McCarthy

Naomi Watts Joins 'St. Vincent De Van Nuys' With Bill Murray, Chris O’Dowd & Melissa McCarthy
After earning a second Oscar nomination for her tortured performance in “The Impossible,” and having recently finished production on her portrayal of Princess Diana (“Diana”), Naomi Watts could certainly use a change of pace from such heavy-handed material. In fact, looking at her filmography from the past few years, you’ll be hard-pressed to find many comedies in the bunch. There’s Woody Allen’s “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger” and of course her riotous turn in David O. Russell's "I Heart Huckabees." Now she's adding another laffer to the bunch. And we don't see how anyone could pass up the opportunity to star alongside Bill Murray, Chris O’Dowd and Melissa McCarthy... The project is “St. Vincent de Van Nuys,” a Black List dramedy from Ted Melfi, which is about a 12-year-old boy who moves in next door to a misanthropic aging retiree (Bill Murray) whose life mainly consists of gambling,
