  • Paul Dano on Making 'Swiss Army Man': 'I Was Really Vulnerable About It'

    Swiss Army Man — or the “farting corpse movie,” as it has been routinely referred to since premiering at Sundance — has been one of the most talked-about movies of the year. It’s a proudly bizarro fart-fueled fantasy about a suicidal young man (Paul Dano) stranded on an island whose discovery of a dead body (Daniel Radcliffe) gives his life new purpose. Dano, 32, fresh from South Korea where he recently wrapped Okja, the latest feature from Joon Ho Bong (Snowpiercer), sat down with Yahoo Movies on a Hollywood roof deck to talk about the adventure of making — and screening — Swiss Army Man, which marks the feature debut of the celebrated music video and short film directors known as The Daniels, Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert.

  • ‘War & Peace’: Leo Tolstoy As a YA-Novel Writer

    War and Peace: Leo Tolstoy As A YA-Novel Writer I would not recommend that any student assigned to read Leo Tolstoy’s War & Peace using the BBC version premiering on American TV Monday night as a cheat-sheet substitute. When you bring up the incest subplot, your teacher will know you’ve not been doing the required assignment.

  • Paul Dano, Elizabeth Banks and Bill Pohlad on 'Love & Mercy,' the Year's Other Great Unconventional Biopic

    Paul Dano as Brian Wilson in ‘Love & Mercy’ (Roadside Attractions) Though it’s not making much noise at the box office, Steve Jobs has been roundly praised by critics, with many kudos for the untraditional, three-part structure director Danny Boyle and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin employ in looking at the life of the late Apple CEO. It could be in line for a gaggle of awards, including for lead actor Michael Fassbender, but it might not actually be the year’s best unconventional biopic. Months before Jobs there was Love & Mercy, the Brian Wilson biopic that’s had a slow-burn effect, steadily building up buzz and positive word of mouth since debuting at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2014. While Jobs centers all of its action chronologically, in real-time as the tech maverick prepares to give three major presentations, Love & Mercy pivots between two seminal periods in the life of the iconic Beach Boys’ singer-songwriter, with two different actors playing him.
