Directors' Trademarks: Bryan Singer

6 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Directors’ trademarks is a series of articles that examines the “signatures” that filmmakers leave behind in their work. This month, we’re examining the trademark style and calling signs of Bryan Singer as director.

Bryan Singer studied film at the New York School of Visual Arts and USC School of Cinematic Arts. After graduating, one of his short films caught the eye of a production company who funded low budget films. He then wrote Public Access with childhood friend Christopher McQuarrie, which he then directed as his first feature film in 1993. Two years later, he had his breakthrough with The Usual Suspects, which caught the eyes of critics at the Cannes Film Festival before ultimately becoming profitable in theaters. Next, Singer adapted a Stephen King novel for the screen, directing Apt Pupil (1998). That film received mixed reviews and was not a financial success. Singer was then hired to direct X-Men »

John Belushi Documentary in the Works from Showtime and R.J. Cutler

23 May 2016 9:52 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Showtime is producing a documentary about the life of comedian John Belushi, the premium cabler announced Monday.

R.J. Cutler will direct and John Battsek will produce the feature-length doc, which will be made with the cooperation of Belushi’s widow, Judith Belushi Pisano, who will collaborate with filmmakers for the first time. The documentary is set to begin production in the fall, with long-time Belushi collaborator Sean Daniel serving as executive producer along with Bill Couturie. Cutler will also produce. The film will be produced in association with Sky Atlantic.

“Belushi was one of my very first heroes. At a time when film, television, and music were undergoing tectonic shifts within American culture, he was at the center of it all,” said Cutler. “At that moment, he had the number one show on television, the number one film at the box office, and the number one record on the charts. »

Movie Poster of the Week: Anna Magnani in Movie Posters

21 May 2016 3:27 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Above: French grande for Volcano (William Dierterle, Italy, 1950). A few weeks ago, I featured the posters of Anna Karina; now it’s the turn of that other legendary Anna... La Magnani or “La Lupa”, the she-wolf, as she was known. Magnani is currently being fêted at Lincoln Center in an all-celluloid retrospective showing 24 of her films that runs through June 1 before traveling to Chicago, San Francisco, Houston and Columbus.Magnani became a star with her powerhouse performance in Rossellini’s Rome, Open City in 1945, and the indelible image of her chasing down the Nazi soldiers who have taken her resistance-hero husband, is one that seems to have informed her persona throughout her career. No sex-kitten, Magnani was the personification of the great actress, and in her posters she is almost always emoting. She is rarely shown smiling (look at her scowling at Ingrid Bergman—in real life she had good »

Mfr Explores The Dceu's Road To Ruin: Column #3

20 May 2016 12:20 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome back to a special ongoing look at Warner Bros. and how it's handled its DC Comics properties. It's going to be a weekly, ongoing miniseries here at Lrm. This entry will look at Batman Begins, Superman Returns, Green Lantern, and more. We'll explore all of the interesting parallels and forks in the road that brought us to where the Dceu is today. 

Last week, we left off in 2004. Warner Bros. was preparing to relaunch its two DC Comics icons Superman and Batman, after flirting with jumping straight to a Batman Versus Superman movie. They backpedalled on that idea and, instead, poured all of their resources into re-establishing the characters as solo entities first, with the hope that a team-up or clash would eventually be in the cards.

Batman Begins

The first of these new films would be Batman Begins. Christopher Nolan, fresh off of critical successes with a few smaller films, »

Cannes Film Review: ‘Tour de France’

15 May 2016 1:20 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If the prospect of watching Gérard Depardieu rap — or rather, witnessing the massive French star roll back and forth on his hips, grab his crotch and shout “Yo yo! Bang bang!” in some grotesquely out-of-touch caricature of gangsta rap — sounds like reason enough to see a movie, then “Tour de France” delivers. But that bizarre spectacle is something of an anomaly in actor-turned-director Rachid Djaïdani’s ultra-p.C. group hug of a movie, which is otherwise so determined to fix what ails France in the wake of recent terrorist attacks and rising racism that it comes across like an obsequious child trying to calm his red-faced parents at the height of a dish-smashing domestic dispute — or worse, a Gallic “Driving Miss Daisy.”

Set around an implausible road trip in which an angry yet bizarrely unaggressive young French-Arab rapper named Far’Hook (Sadek) chauffeurs his producer’s hip-hop-averse dad, Serge (Depardieu), around the coast of France, »

The 2016 Docaviv International Documentary Film Festival: New World Disorder

11 May 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

As the main topic of this year’s festival, Docaviv will feature a select group of thought-provoking films about a world that is changing with the collapse of physical and social boundaries, growing economic disparities, the waves of refugees and immigrants, civil wars, international terrorism, and the ultimate undoing of social solidarity.

Within the framework of this theme the program does not only include documentaries about terror and refugees, but also about a fragmented society which is losing its solidarity. Both in Israel and elsewhere the gap between the haves and the have-nots is widening, and so are the frustrations and the unrest. Israeli and international titles correlating to these themes can be found throughout the entire festival program: 

“Death in the terminal” - Directors Tali Shemesh (“The Cemetery Club”) and Assaf Surd

A tense, minute-by-minute, Rashomon-style account of a tragic day. On October 18, 2015, a terrorist armed with a gun and a knife entered Beersheba’s bus terminal. Within 18 minutes Omri Levy, a soldier was killed and Abtum Zarhum, Eritrean immigrant asylum seeker, was lynched after being mistaken for a terrorist.  

The Settlers” - Premiered in Sundance, Director Shimon Dotan.

A far-reaching, comprehensive look at the Jewish settlement enterprise in the West Bank. It examines the origins of the settlement movement and the religious and ideological visions that propelled it, while providing an intimate look at the people at the center of the greatest geopolitical challenge now facing Israel and the international community. (Isa Contact: Cinephil)

“Town on a Wire” - premiered at Cph: Dox Dir: Uri Rosenwaks

While Tel Aviv is thriving, just ten minutes away lies the town of Lod, right in the backyard of Israel’s bustling urban center. Unlike its affluent neighbor, Lod is a city that suffers from the blight of racism, crime, and sheer desperation. Can it be saved? Is there some way to bring hope to Lod’s Arab and Jewish residents?

“Foucoammare”/ “Fire at Sea” -  by Gianfranco Rosi - winner of Golden Bear, Berlinale 2016  -every day the inhabitants of the Italian Island Lampedusa are confronted  with the flight of refugees to Europe . These people long for peace and freedom and often only their dead bodies are pulled out of the water. (Contact Isa: Doc & Film Int’l.  U.S.: Kino Lorber)

“Between fences” – by Avi Mograbi -. In an Israeli detention center asylum-seekers from Eritrea and Sudan can’t be sent back to their own countries, but have no prospects in Israel either thanks to the country’s policies. Chen Alon and Avi Mograbi, initiate a theatre workshop to give these people the opportunity to address their own experiences of forced migration and discrimination and to confront an Israeli society that views them as dangerous infiltrators.

A Syrian Love Story” – by Sean McAllister -You can’t be Che Guevara and a mother Amer tells Raghda, but maybe she can't do it any other way. After years of struggle, life without her homeland and the revolution has no meaning for her. It is hard to determine what is more demanding in this bold film: the revolution, or the search for inner peace. (Contact Isa: Cat & Docs)

Homo Sapiens” – by Nikolaus Geyrhalter - what does humanity leave behind when its gone? It sometimes seems as if the mark that humans leave on this planet will last forever. The truth is that the iron, bricks, cement, and steel – the human traces everywhere abandoned and forgotten – are erased by the forces of nature. This unusually beautiful film may lack people and words, but that leaves even more room for thought.(Contact Isa: Autlook) 

“Land of the Enlightened” – Premiered at Sundance Ff 2016. Shot over seven years on evocative 16mm footage, first-time director Pieter-Jan De Pue paints a whimsical yet haunting look at the condition of Afghanistan left for the next generation. As American soldiers prepare to leave, we follow De Pue deep into this hidden land where young boys form wild gangs to control trade routes, sell explosives from mines left over from war, making the new rules of war based on the harsh landscape left to them. (Contact Isa: Films Boutique)

“Flickering Truth”  - Premiered at Toronto Ff 2015. Director Pietra Brettkelly (The Art Star and the Sudanese Twins) directs this harrowing, compelling film about the power of cinema to preserve our history and in so doing potentially change our futures. (Contact Isa: Film Sales Company)

Requiem for the American Dream”  -  Directed by Peter D. Hutchison, Kelly Nyks, Jared P. Scott. In ten chilling but lucid chapters, Noam Chomsky, one of the great intellectuals of our time, analyzes the “system,” which allows wealthy capitalists to seize the reins of government and turn those without wealth into a passive herd, willing to forego power, solidarity, and democracy itself. (U.S.: Gravitas. Contact Isa: Films Transit) 

The festival will open with a first film by Israeli director Roman Shumunov

“Babylon Dreamers” Directed by Roman Somonob.  An intimate report about a troupe of immigrants from the former Soviet Union, from one of Ashdod’s poorest neighborhoods; they struggle to survive facing harsh conditions - poverty, mental illness, and broken families.

Agatha Christie adventure film in development

Believe or not, this is not the only Agatha Christie-centric action adventure film currently in Hollywood development...

Did you know that there is currently not one, but two adventure films about crime novelist Agatha Christie in development? 

The more breaking news is that Columbia Pictures is working on developing a script from Tom Shepherd called simply Agatha Christie, with Roth Kirschenbaum Films signed on to produce. According to The Tracking Board, the action-adventure film is being pitched as 'Sherlock Holmes meets The Thomas Crown Affair'. But starring Agatha Christie. Um, where can I sign a petition to make sure this happens?

The plot of the film would revolve around a young (because of course), adventurous Christie teaming up with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (because of course) to track down a missing oil tycoon (because of course?). Will they find him? Will they fall in love in the process? »

A Streetcar Named Desire and a “Stella!” Shouting Contest at the Tennessee Williams Festival St. Louis

“I have always depended on the kindness of strangers.”

Ahead of its time in how it showed raw and naked sexual and emotional passions on the screen, A Streetcar Named Desire made 27 year-old Marlon Brando, who also played the role of Stanley Kowalski on Broadway, an overnight sensation and one of the all-time greats of the silver screen. Blanche Dubois (Viven Leigh) is a Southern belle, one who had every man in the palm of her man. Blanche moves in with her sister Stella (Kim Hunter) and her husband, Stanley (Brando) in a small, grotty New Orleans apartment. Blanche’s family owned an estate but lost it and now Blanche has gone to live with her sister, much to the animal-like Stanley’s dismay. Stanley hates her, hates her with a passion. Once she arrives, hell breaks loose between Stanley and Stella, who is pregnant. Stanley gets his contacts and »

11 Actors Too Legit to Be Superheroes

10 May 2016 11:56 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In this day and age where superhero movies rule the box office roost, it seems that every actor is getting sucked in. What these films seem to do is hedge their bets with young thespians on the upswing, and older actors that lend the film some credibility. Some examples of this might be Marlon Brando in Superman, Robert Redford in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Anthony Hopkins in Thor. One might also make the case for Natalie Portman in the Thor films but that is another story...

However, there are some actors who cannot play ball. Actors who, by the very definition of the craft of acting, don't see a role like Iron Man as anything to get excited about. In fact, some years ago Movieweb interviewed Thomas Jane regarding the role of The Punisher. When asked if a role like that was something he coveted Jane replied, "It isn't Shakespeare. »

Mfr Explores The Dceu's Road To Ruin: Column #1

6 May 2016 12:40 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome to a special ongoing look at Warner Bros. and how it's handled its DC Comics properties. It's going to be a weekly, ongoing miniseries here at Lrm. This first entry will offer a bit of history, as we build towards what's happening in the present day Dceu. We'll explore all of the interesting parallels and forks in the road that brought us to where the Dceu is today.

Humble Beginnings...

Long before comic book movies dominated Hollywood; Long before comic books were looked upon as anything other than campy, youth-oriented entertainment; Long before Hollywood titans like Disney and 20th Century got into the business of building worlds out of superhero titles, a struggling film company merged with another conglomerate in a seemingly innocuous merger transaction. 

Warner Bros., which had begun its life in 1923 and would become one of the most important studios in Hollywood, was in an extremely vulnerable place in the mid-1960s. »
