‘Last Tango in Paris’ Cinematographer Refutes Controversy: ‘Nothing Happened During the Shooting’

7 December 2016 9:57 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Following last weekend’s seeming confirmation from Bernardo Bertolucci that an infamous rape sequence in “Last Tango in Paris” was non-consensual and his subsequent clarification that it was all a “ridiculous misunderstanding,” the film’s cinematographer has weighed in on the controversy. Vittorio Storaro has spoken to the Hollywood Reporter about the “butter scene” involving Marlon Brando and Maria Schneider, saying that “nothing happened…Nobody was raping anybody. That was something made up by a journalist.”

After a few more choice comments for journalists, Storaro explains that “probably Bernardo felt that maybe he didn’t explain it completely to Maria from the beginning and that’s why he felt a little guilty and nothing more than that. What Bernardo said later was he would like to apologize to Maria, only because he probably didn’t »

Last Tango in Paris Cinematographer Claims "Nothing Happened During the Shooting"

6 December 2016 4:35 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

This article has been updated with new information and contains a disturbing story of rape and assault. On Friday, a 2013 video of Italian director Bernardo Bertolucci discussing one of his 1972 films, The Last Tango in Paris, resurfaced and caused an uproar. In it, Bertolucci admits that he and the film's leading man, Marlon Brando, conspired to film the movie's infamous "butter" rape scene - in which Brando's character uses a stick of butter to help him rape actress Maria Schneider's character - without the consent of the 19-year-old star. "The sequence of the butter is an idea that I had with Marlon in the morning before shooting," Bertulocci revealed while being interviewed at La Cinémathèque Francaise. Although he said he felt awful "in a way" for his treatment of Schneider, he rationalized it by saying that he "wanted her reaction as a girl, not as an actress." To be clear, »

Shia Labeouf Compares Himself to Stanley Kubrick and Marlon Brando in New Rap Freestyle

6 December 2016 10:21 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last month Shia Labeouf showed off his freestyle rapping skills during SiriusXM Shade 45’s “Sway in the Morning.” Now the actor is back with a new rap, a response to a feud that began with Soulja Boy. The rapper tried to ban Shia from Atlanta and told him to “stick to acting” after Shia called him out on his previous track “Zapruder,” released last week on the New York radio show “The Breakfast Club.”

Then on Monday (December 5), Labeouf released a quick response in which he talks about the feud and also declares that he’ll make a point to visit Atlanta “when [his] schedule is flexible.” In getting his point across, Shia compares himself to Marlon Brando and Stanley Kubrick, as well as notes his latest film role in the biopic “Borg/McEnroe.”

“I just finished playing tennis like I’m John McEnroe,” he raps. “Compare me to Brando, Eminem, »

The Progress and Pitfalls of Television’s Treatment of Rape

6 December 2016 9:56 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When he was helping to choose writers for the staff of Fox’s television revival of “The Exorcist,” executive producer Jeremy Slater kept encountering the same plot point over and over.

“One of my hard-and-fast rules when reading spec scripts was, the second that there was a rape that was used for shock value and that didn’t have any sort of narrative purpose, I threw the script aside. And I was shocked by the number that had that,” Slater said. “I would say out of those 200 scripts, there were probably 30 or 40 of them that opened with a rape or had a pretty savage rape at some point.”

He shook his head and sighed. “It has become a plague on the industry.”

Rape as a plot device has come under renewed scrutiny in light of Bernardo Bertolucci’s comments about what occurred in an infamous scene in his film “Last Tango in Paris.” The »

What Is the Best TV Theme Song for a Show Airing in 2016? — IndieWire Critics Survey

6 December 2016 8:34 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is the best TV theme song for a current show that aired in 2016?

Alan Sepinwall (@sepinwall), HitFix

If we’re talking pre-existing theme songs of shows that aired in 2016, then the obvious choice for me is “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” whose funky ’70s cop show riff often provides the biggest joy I get out of my viewing week, especially when paired with all those great visuals (Gina dancing, Charles injuring himself). In terms of theme songs brand new to this year, I go with one that I actually had to make an effort to watch with each episode: “Luke Cage.” Another ’70s throwback, it perfectly sets the mood for everything that follows, »

‘Last Tango in Paris': How Modern Actors Are Protected From Rape-Scene Abuses

5 December 2016 6:20 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Bernardo Bertolucci’s comments about a 1972 rape scene in his film “Last Tango in Paris” brought outrage over the weekend about his mistreatment of actress Maria Schneider — but also assurances from the Screen Actors Guild that actors are better protected today. In the infamous scene, Marlon Brando’s character uses butter as a lubricant to rape Schneider’s. Bertolucci and Brando were widely condemned over the weekend after a YouTube user posted a 2013 interview in which the director admitted he and Brando did not tell in her in advance that butter would be part of the sequence. She said in 2007 that. »

5 December 2016 3:11 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Destroy All Monsters: We're Bad At Confronting News Like The Bertolucci News

5 December 2016 12:00 PM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

On the weekend one of my listeners jumped on the comment thread for my latest podcast episode to voice his disgust at the news that Bernardo Bertolucci had conspired with Marlon Brando to rape Maria Schneider for a scene in Last Tango in Paris. He went on to say that at least Hollywood and the European filmmaking community have progressed away from those sorts of practices in the last forty years. (As many have noted, this admission by Bertolucci is only "news" if you discount Maria Schneider's own characterization of the event. Additionally, Bertolucci has subsequently clarified his comments, proposing that it was the use of butter in the sequence, not the rape itself, that was not cleared with Schneider prior to filming.)

Director releases statement to Italian press: “I would like, for the last time, to clear up a ridiculous misunderstanding.”

Bernardo Bertolucci has issued a statement to Italian media in which he seeks to clarify comments he made in a 2013 interview about the infamous Last Tango In Paris rape scene that went viral this weekend, prompting outrage from a number of Us industry figures.
