Cannes 2016 poster shows 'Contempt'

21 March 2016 5:11 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

This year’s Cannes Film Festival poster uses stills from Jean-Luc Godard’s 1963 film.

Less than a month before the full line-up is revealed, the poster for the 69th Cannes Film Festival (May 11-22) has been unfurled.

The poster, which will be emblazoned across the Palais and displayed throughout Cannes, usually features a close up of a film star and in recent years has featured Ingrid Bergman, Marcello Mastroianni and Paul Newman.

This year, the festival has used (remastered) stills from Jean-Luc Godard’s 1963 film, Contempt (Le Mépris), depicting a man (French actor/director Michel Piccoli) ascending steps against a backdrop of the Mediterranean sea.

The poster was designed by Hervé Chigioni, who has overseen the festival’s posters since 2014, and his graphic designer Gilles Frappier.

Contempt starred Michel Piccoli and Brigitte Bardot alongside legendary director Fritz Land and Jack Palance. It is a symbolic choice for the poster as the film is about the making of a film »

Los Angeles Kills Itself: A Cinematic Look at Hollywood as Hell

3 March 2016 11:16 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

For those many aspiring artists who make the pilgrimage to Los Angeles in hopes of finding their silver screen dreams, the city can take on a magical and enticing air. More often than not, small town beauty queens and football stars hoping for fame shoot for the stars and land among the trash. As beautiful a city as it is, Hollywood is also a place where the strong eagerly use and discard the weak with a frightening frequency. Can’t take the pressure? Don’t fret. There is certainly no shortage of wide-eyed kids waiting to take your place.

In Knight of Cups, the latest film by Terrence Malick, Christian Bale stars as a Hollywood screenwriter drifting through the sights and sounds of contemporary Los Angeles. To mark the occasion, we’ve taken a look back at the finest films portraying the dark side of Hollywood — the broken hearts and crushed dreams. »

Le Mépris review – Jean-Luc Godard versus marriage and the film industry

3 January 2016 12:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Brigitte Bardot reminds us what all the fuss was about, alongside Jack Palance and Michel Piccoli, in this restored version of Godard’s 1963 classic

I first saw Le Mépris many years ago in a print so faded that everything was pale pink; it felt like gazing at an artefact from an immeasurably distant past. Watching the film now, with its reds and Mediterranean blues restored to their full intensity, the film is still redolent of a lost antiquity, not least because Jean-Luc Godard’s 1963 feature is so steeped in melancholy and a sense of mourning.

Movie Review – Le Mépris (1963)

2 January 2016 7:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Le Mépris, 1963.

Directed by Jean-Luc Godard.

Starring Brigitte Bardot, Michel Piccoli and Jack Palance.

Synopsis:

Playwright, Paul Javal, is approached to write an adaptation for a film, directed by Fritz Lang. While he is conflicted about how he should proceed with such a commercial enterprise, his marriage to Camille is on the rocks and he is  not entirely sure why…

The cool hats, imitating screen gods like Humphrey Bogart and Dean Martin, is integral to Jean Luc-Godard’s iconic films such as À bout de souffle, Bande à part and Le Mépris. What separates Le Mépris from the others is how sex and filmmaking is merged into one, using the iconic Brigitte Bardot to subtly dominate the screen with her sensual presence.

Panning slowly, through tricolour filters, Godard caresses Bardot’s body in the opening. As Camille, Bardot asks her husband Paul Javal (Michel Piccoli), whether he likes her »
