Julie Delpy - Delpy Shot Halloween Parade 'Guerilla Style'

French actress-turned-director Julie Delpy fears she flouted U.S. law while shooting romantic comedy 2 Days In New York by filming scenes "guerrilla style" during the city's popular Halloween parade.
The Before Sunset star admits she didn't apply for a permit to film scenes during the October festivities and didn't alert those in the audience to the fact that they may appear on screen, but she is confident she managed to avoid any potential legal action thanks to clever editing.
She tells the New York Post, "We had to do it (filming) guerrilla style, which I think was illegal, but maybe not, because no one (in the crowd) was in focus."
Delpy also reveals she and her film crew were relatively undisturbed as they shot footage during the parade: "People were all dressed up and dancing and partying, and some people recognised me, but we shot for four hours and people weren't always jumping on me. I'm not that famous. I'm not Brad Pitt."

Julie Delpy Claims Academy Awards Is Rigged By Old Rich Men 4091277 News

The French-American actress and screenwriter is frustrated about the inequality that continues to surface in films today. She also claims that the “old men” within the Oscar voting committee take bribes for votes.

"We have the Golden Globes. If you could see it, you wouldn't believe that there's anything good about it. The same goes for the Oscars," Delpy told So Film, via the Irish Independent. "It's 90 percent white men over 70 who need money because they haven't done anything in a long time. You just need to give them two or three presents and they're in your pocket. It doesn't mean anything to me, so I don't really care if there are women in the selection process."

Delpy’s outrage is the latest of feuds over disparity issues, there has been quite a few heated conversations about an infographic released by the New York Film Academy. The infographic is said to highlight some of the issues regarding gender inequality currently in Hollywood.

Angelina Jolie ranked as the highest paid actress in 2013 with an income of $33 million. Jolie’s salary ranked among the two lowest men on the list. In addition, Lee & Low Books chart claims only a mere 23 percent of the Academy are female.

Delpy is currently up for an Oscar award for Best Adapted Screenplay for “Before Midnight.” The actress stated that the awards are meaningless because of the voting committee. Delpy also believes that the Weinstein brothers have ruined the independent movie scene, even claiming that her own movies have been crap.

"Every time I've become a part of the Hollywood mainstream, it's been crap! Let's be honest: 90% of movies made in Hollywood are crap," stated Delpy.

Before Midnight 3728428 Film Reviews

It's been 18 years since Hawke, Delpy and Linklater introduced us to Jesse and Celine, and their story just gets richer, funnier and more punchy each time we see them. In 1995's Before Sunrise, they were idealistic 23-year-olds. In 2004's Before Sunset, they were thinking about bigger issues, including their future. Now at age 41, they're approaching middle age and asking questions about their life choices.

We catch up with Jesse and Celine (Hawke and Delpy) on a Greek island, where they're just finishing their summer holiday. As they prepare to go home to Paris with their 7-year-old twins (Jennifer and Charlotte Prior), Jesse's 13-year-old son Hank (Davey-Fitzpatrick) is returning to his still-angry mother in Chicago. But Jesse is wishing he had more time with Hank, and floats the idea of moving to America. This makes Celine furious, since she's just about to start an exciting new job. Clearly it's time to take stock of their relationship and make some important decisions.

Watching these characters (and the actors playing them) age is fascinating, as they encounter different issues at each stage of life. It's not necessary to have seen the earlier films, because they were essentially different people back then. This movie stands on its own as a snappy, deeply resonant look at a crunch-point in a relationship, as a couple tries to decide if their still-burning passion is strong enough to carry them forward. And Hawke and Delpy deliver the dialog impeccably, with razor-sharp wit and artistic sensitivity swirling through everything they say. Watching them is a joy.

As before, Linklater follows them in long, complex takes as they indulge in extended conversations, debates and deliberations. What they say to each other is often a bit too honest, and sometimes perhaps a little too clever. But the chemistry between Hawke and Delpy is so raw that we often gasp as we recognise ourselves in them. And it gets us thinking about hopes and fears, as well as how our past has shaped us into who we are. So it's going to be a long wait to see how they're doing at 50.

Before Midnight Delights Critics – Review Roundup 3728222 News

This long-running trilogy has its third film: Before Midnight. The sequel to Before Sunrise (1995) and Before Sunset (2004) - again directed by Richard Linklater and again, co-written and acted by Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy - has got the critics excited, again.

In fact, there aren't any negative reviews for this romantic epic. “Predictably, it's just as great as the first two,” say Little White Lies. “As an organic experiment in collaboration between actors and director, it is a triumph, co-created and co-owned by Delpy, Linklater and Hawke,” enthused The Guardian's Peter Bradshaw. Empire Magazine were also waxing lyrical about the film. “A bit tarter than its predecessors, but not skimping on their woozy, chatty charm, this perfectly played, gently incisive film is a welcome new chapter in one of cinema's most beguiling ongoing romances,” they write. And Time Out say “Hawke and Delpy remain as charming as ever, and their combined goofiness is more endearing than annoying.” Sky perhaps sum things the most succinctly with their review: “For those who witnessed Jesse and Celine's tentative getting together as inter railing students almost twenty years ago, it's reassuring to see them still in love.”

With a staggering 98% rating on review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, Before Midnight looks like a must-see. So if you're thinking about what to watch this weekend (the movie is released tomorrow) then there can't be another option, especially if you're taking a special someone along to the pictures.

Jesse and Celine return, though their love life is not what it once was. They are now married with twin daughters, Jesse is a successful novelist and Celine is contemplating a change of career. However, it's 18 years since they first met on a train from Budapest, 18 years since they wandered around the city of Vienna throughout the night rapidly falling more in love by the strike of each hour, and 9 years since they rekindled that whirlwind romance following the release of Jesse's best-selling book about their encounter. Now in Greece, Jesse feels a little sad about seeing his son Hank fly back to his mother (Jesse's ex-wife) and he and Celine are facing increasing strain on their relationship. Despite wooing the friends they meet in Greece with the romantic tale of their relationship, Celine has doubts as to whether he is the man she once loved and whether she is still the woman he was once so enchanted by. They are given another night alone in which to enjoy each other's company, but will it just turn into a desperate struggle to save their floundering marriage?

2 Days In New York 3199213 Videos 17th July 2012

French beauty Marion and radio presenter Mingus have a wonderfully healthy relationship at home with their children from former relationships. However, their happiness is tested on the arrival of her unconventional and mischievous family who bring with them vulgarity, casual racism and bold opinions. Among them are Rose, Marion's sexually obsessed sister; her crazy boyfriend; Marion's ex-boyfriend and her sausage loving father. Mingus starts to have second thoughts about his girlfriend who appears to have a completely different personality around her outrageous family; he even talks about his frustrations with a cardboard cut-out of his hero and US President Barack Obama. Is their relationship strong enough to survive this new and complicated situation?

This wonderfully funny romantic comedy is a follow-up to the 2007 French-German film '2 Days in Paris' which won a Coup de Coeur award at the Mons International Festival of Love Films and sees the return of Parisian main star, writer and director Julie Delpy. A film based on exaggerated cultural stereotypes, '2 Days in New York' could be seen as insulting if it weren't for the fact that it's too ridiculous for words. A delightful love story nonetheless, it hit UK cinemas back in May this year (2012) and has so far received reasonably positive reviews from critics.

Starring: Chris Rock, Julie Delpy, Kate Burton, Dylan Baker, Malinda Williams, Carmen Lopez, Emily Wagner and Arthur French.

Directed by Julie Delpy.

Ethan Hawke & Julie Delpy Planning Another Before Sunrise Sequel 2527267 News Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy and filmmaker Richard Linklater are in talks to reunite for another Before Sunrise sequel.
Hawke and Delpy first played lovers Jesse and Celine in 1995's Before Sunrise and revived the hopeless romantics for 2004's Before Sunset - and now they are considering completing the trilogy with Linklater behind the camera again.
Hawke tells French website Allocine, "All of three of us have been having similar feelings that we're ready to revisit those characters. There's nine years between the first two movies and, if we made the film next summer, it would be nine years again so we really started thinking that would be a good thing to do. We're going to try to write it this year."
