Richard Schickel, Rip: How the Legendary Critic Defined a Generation

21 February 2017 8:29 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

My first meeting as a member of the New York Film Critics Circle was December 1989 and, in those days, the group met at the old Newspaper Guild building, then on West 44th Street. The meeting room was a cramped, windowless enclosure with fake wood-panel walls, a full assortment of ashtrays and the ambiance of — well, interior designers have a technical name for enclosures like this: Shit-hole, I believe, is the term of trade.

But when I walked into this unprepossessing little room, here were people whose names were magical to me, critics whose work helped shape the way I looked at movies as a college student and then as a nascent critic and film journalist. Pauline Kael. Andrew Sarris. Rex Reed. Richard Schickel.

Schickel, who died Saturday at 84, may have been the name that struck the deepest chord at that time. Long before I discovered either Kael or Sarris, I »

Martin Scorsese Remembers Richard Schickel, ‘A Very Perceptive Critic and a Wonderful Writer’

20 February 2017 3:57 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Martin Scorsese has shared his thoughts on Richard Schickel, the influential film critic who passed away at 84 on Saturday. Schickel wrote dozens of books, most recently his 2015 memoir “Keepers: The Greatest Films — and Personal Favorites — of a Moviegoing Lifetime,” and served as film critic for Time from 1965–2010. Read Scorsese’s statement below.

Richard Schickel was a very perceptive critic and a wonderful writer and documentary filmmaker,” writes the filmmaker. “As a person he was, to use a once popular term, ‘crusty,’ and he could be brutally funny. But it’s his deep and abiding love of movies that I’ll always remember about him. His early 70s PBS series ‘The Men Who Made the Movies,’ his 2004 restoration of Sam Fuller’s ‘The Big Red One,’ his wonderful little book about ‘Double Indemnity, »

Richard Schickel, Influential Time Magazine Film Critic, Dies at 84

19 February 2017 5:58 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Richard Schickel, the longtime film critic for Time magazine who also wrote 37 books, mostly on film, and directed a number of documentaries on film subjects, died on Saturday in Los Angeles of complications from a series of strokes, his family told the Los Angeles Times. He was 84.

“He was one of the fathers of American film criticism,” his daughter, writer Erika Schickel, told the Times. “He had a singular voice. When he wrote or spoke, he had an old-fashioned way of turning a phrase. He was blunt and succinct both on the page and in life.”

He wrote and/or directed more than 30 documentaries, mostly for television.

Schickel shared a 1977 Emmy nomination for the documentary “Life Goes to the Movies” and received two nominations in 1987 for the documentary “Minnelli on Minnelli: Liza Remembers Vincente,” which he directed.

Schickel wrote film reviews for Life magazine from 1965 until the magazine folded in »

Oscars: With 38 Combined Noms, Former Partners Square Off for the First Time

16 February 2017 8:32 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For more than a decade, sound mixers Kevin O’Connell and Greg P. Russell worked hand-in-hand on some of the industry’s biggest box office hits, movies like “The Rock,” “Armageddon,” “Spider-Man,” and “Transformers.” It was a relationship born out of an early coupling on Ridley Scott’s “Black Rain” that later took flight in the mid-1990s when the two set up shop together at the Cary Grant mixing stage on the Sony lot in Culver City. In their time together, they landed Academy recognition 12 times, quickly becoming the Susan Luccis of the Oscars — consistently nominated, but never awarded.

Ten years ago, after the first “Transformers” film, O’Connell and Russell went their separate ways. This year, they’re back at the big dance together, though for different projects: O’Connell picked up his 21st nomination to date for Mel Gibson’s “Hacksaw Ridge,” while Russell is back in »

Berlinale 2017: The Queen of Spain Review

14 February 2017 5:49 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

 

Poking fun Hollywood, and the golden age of movie-making in particular, Fernando Trueba’s The Queen of Spain laughs at the industry with the same affection and romanticism that Hail, Caesar! carried, to find that compatible balance between ridicule and adulation. Given this meta endeavour is set within the business it allows the filmmaker a licence to be overstated, and he uses that freedom in quite remarkable fashion, with an aesthetic almost as vibrant as that of which we saw in his enchanting, Oscar-nominated animation Chico & Rita.

Blas Fontiveros (Antonio Resines) has been presumed dead, but makes a shocking return to world of make believe by turning up on the set of the Hollywood blockbuster set in Spain and starring their most famous export, the fictional creation of Macarena Granada (Penélope Cruz) – a character who first graced the screen in Trueba’s The Girl of Your Dreams »

'When You're In Love': THR's 1937 Review

13 February 2017 11:59 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

In February 1937, Columbia Pictures unveiled the musical When You're in Love, featuring star turns by Cary Grant and Grace Moore. The Hollywood Reporter's original review is below.

With a more substantial story than the last two Grace Moore vehicles, When You're in Love is a signal triumph for the foremost diva of the screen, for Cary Grant who should soar to stardom as a result of his performance in this, and for Robert Riskin, here notably handling his first directorial assignment. It is money in the bank for any house, due for holdover business in many spots.

How to Identify the Four 'Peak Tom Hardy' Types

17 January 2017 9:46 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

He's created a series of performances that have taken advantage of his intensity, his brutish physique and his way around a multi-syllable sentence – and now, Tom Hardy has somehow created a role for himself that feels more Tom Hardy than almost anything else he's done. In Taboo, the new FX series the actor co-created with father Chips Hardy and Peaky Blinders showrunner Steven Knight, he plays gruff protagonist James Delaney, an early 19th-century explorer who returns home to London to find out he's inherited land sought after by the East India Company. »

‘His Girl Friday’ Blu-ray Review

17 January 2017 2:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Cary Grant, Rosalind Russell, Ralph Bellamy, Gene Lockhart | Written by Charles Lederer | Directed by Howard Hawks

Walter (Cary Grant) and Hildy (Rosalind Russell) used to be married. Hildy is a journalist looking for a way out of the biz, but Walter – who also happens to be her ex-boss – wants to bring her back in. He just wants her, full stop. He sees her new fiancé – a safe dullard named Bruce (Ralph Bellamy) – and he despairs.

But Hildy and Bruce are leaving town tonight and getting married tomorrow. Walter, in typically psychopathic rom-com style, desperately contrives various ways of preventing them. Then the news story of the year is unleashed: a man accused of shooting a black police officer absconds on the eve of his execution.

A domino run of darkly farcical events begins, which not only resurrect Hildy’s passion for journalism, but also her lapsed camaraderie with Walter. »

Blu-ray Review – His Girl Friday (1940)

16 January 2017 1:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

His Girl Friday, 1940.

Directed by Howard Hawks.

Starring Cary Grant, Rosalind Russell, Ralph Bellamy, John Qualen, Helen Mack, and Alma Kruger.

Synopsis:

A hard-boiled newspaper editor attempts to rekindle his ex-wife’s – and ex-star reporter’s – love for both himself and the world of newspaper journalism.

His Girl Friday marks something of a turning point in the movies. Howard Hawks’s adaptation of a play (Hold the Front Page) exploring the dynamic world of newspaper journalism took the genius idea of changing the gender of the originally male ace-reporter character and transforming him into Rosalind Russell’s vivacious Hildy Johnson. Her portrayal of a smart and determined journalist trading razor-sharp quips and put-downs with her charismatic ex-boss and ex-husband Walter Burns (Cary Grant) is a truly wonderful creation, bringing a whole new dimension to fast-talking character driven screwball comedy.

11 January 2017 6:47 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Joseph Fiennes (controversially) portrays Michael Jackson in the first trailer for a new comedy show that reimagines the urban legend about the King of Pop's post-9/11 road trip with Marlon Brando and Elizabeth Taylor.

Originally called Elizabeth, Michael & Marlon, the film has since been retitled and integrated into Urban Myths: A Brand New Collection of Comedies, an anthology that revolves around other "true…ish stories" that have circulated as urban legends.

In the trailer, Fiennes' Jackson appears as a largely silent, wild-eyed passenger as Taylor (played by Stockard Channing) and »

11 January 2017 5:50 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Urban Myths is going to be a very unique TV series when it premieres on Sky Arts on January 19. It's going to put a unique, absurd twist on all kinds of urban legends that surround some of the most famous figures ever. 

In Urban Myths, you'll see a varied group of famous figures like Marlon Brando, Elizabeth Taylor, Adolf Hitler (!?!?!), Bob Dylan, Cary Grant, and others played by the likes of Brian Cox, Stockard Channing, Eddie Marsan, and more. But one of the more notable castings, which took the net by storm a while back when it was announced, was the choice to have Joseph Fiennes (Shakespeare In Love) play "The King of Pop" Michael Jackson.

Well, if you've been curious about this project ever since hearing about that Mj casting, here's a chance to take a peak at the bizarre tales it plans to tell- including our first glimpse of Fiennes as Jackson. »
