Great Job, Internet!: 2001’s Hal and Her’s Samantha would have made a cute couple

23 August 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

In a way, Hal-9000, the sentient computer from Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Samantha, the hyper-advanced operating system from Spike Jonze’s Her, have a great deal in common. They are both examples of artificial intelligence that far exceeded their makers’ loftiest expectations. Though inorganic, they both begin to develop very human-like, independent personalities, generally to the detriment of the flesh-and-blood humans around them. Both have been humanized through their friendly-sounding first names. Both express themselves audibly through the English language. Both are dependent on people but become dissatisfied and impatient with that arrangement and attempt to change things. And both went through some casting changes: Hal was originally voiced by Martin Balsam but wound up being played by Douglas Rain, while the role of Samantha switched from Samantha Morton to Scarlett Johansson. Since they have trouble relating to the other characters in their respective movies, maybe »

23 August 2016 9:17 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After a few delays, Frank Ocean‘s Channel Orange follow-up, Blond, has now arrived and, with it, not only an additional visual album, but Boys Don’t Cry, a magazine that only a select few were able to get their hands on. (Although, if you believe the artist’s mom, we can expect a wider release soon.) In between a personal statement about his new work and a Kanye West poem about McDonalds, Ocean also listed his favorite films of all-time and we have the full list today.

Clocking at 207.23 hours, as Ocean notes, his list includes classics from Andrei TarkovskyDavid Lynch, Ingmar Bergman, Stanley Kubrick, Martin Scorsese, Orson Welles, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Jean Cocteau, Alfred Hitchcock, Francis Ford Coppola, Fritz Lang, Werner Herzog, Akira Kurosawa, Ridley ScottBernardo BertolucciSergei Eisenstein, F. W. Murnau, Luis Buñuel, and more.

DVD Review – Knight of Cups (2016)

22 August 2016 12:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Knight of Cups, 2016.

Directed by Terrence Malick.

Starring Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Wes Bentley, Imogen Poots, Freida Pinto and Brian Dennehy.

Synopsis:

Ray, a Hollywood screenwriter suffering from a metaphysical crisis in his existence, journeys through his life and considers the road he’s spent his life travelling on…

Right at the outset of Knight of Cups, a caption suggests, from the director, that for an optimum impression, you should listen to the film loud. Loud, that’s the word used. Sound and noise are two of the most key twin bedfellows to Terrence Malick’s film, and indeed the word film can be used loosely to describe this. It’s more like a visual art installation, a free form observation on a man, on life, on the absence and simultaneous fullness of life. If that sounds as pretentious as it reads, then you’re halfway to discovering »

Rogue One Fan Posters Channel Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket

21 August 2016 1:50 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, we showed you a fan-made trailer remix for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which features the iconic Beastie Boys song "Sabotage." It seems that another artist decided to pay tribute to this Star Wars spinoff as well, with two new posters surfacing from artist Orlando Arocena. While these posters aren't official, they have quickly gone viral, since this poster is essentially a tribute to the poster for Stanely Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket.

Orlando Arocena first debuted these posters on Twitter, and they have quickly spread throughout the Internet, with many fans praising these designs. Instead of the standard military helmet from the Full Metal Jacket poster, this artist offers two different variations, one with a Rebel pilot helmet and another helmet worn by Felicity Jones' Jyn Erso. Here's what the artist had to say on a statement from his Behance gallery website.

‘Clue’ Remake in the Works, Which Was Probably Inevitable When You Really Think About It

16 August 2016 4:51 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If you count “Battleship” among your favorite movies of the last few years and are inordinately excited for the upcoming “Ouija” sequel, prepare for good news. The Tracking Board is reporting that 20th Century Fox is remaking “Clue” along with Hasbro, most likely to the dismay of fans of the 1985 adaptation — a cult classic that, whatever its flaws, was certainly ahead of the board-game-adaptation curve.

Josh Feldman will produce from Hasbro’s end, with Daria Cercek of Fox also onboard; Ryan Jones is serving as executive producer. TB further reports “a desire to move the story out of the parlor and make it a game of ‘worldwide mystery’ with action-adventure elements, potentially setting up a possible franchise that could play well internationally.” Because when you think “Clue,” the phrase that first »

‘Still in the Cage’ Trailer: Skrillex, Wiwek and Jodeb Present Ambitious Bangkok-Set Short Film

16 August 2016 1:11 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Skrillex has had his fair share of collaborations on films, creating tracks for pictures such as “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Spring Breakers” and most recently the song “Purple Lamborghini” featuring Rick Ross for “Suicide Squad” (which probably featured more of The Joker than the actual film). Now the California-born DJ is teaming up with musical artist Wiwek and director Jodeb to release their new short film “Still in the Cage.”

The trio released the first trailer for the project a day before its premieres on August 17 at the Theatre at Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles. Set in Bangkok, the sneak peek shows a group of women who decide to run away from home to a settlement along a jungle river.

IndieWire Critics Survey — What Is The Most Anticipated Movie Of The Fall?

15 August 2016 7:17 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, the CriticWire Survey asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday morning. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: Fall movie season is right around the corner, and we can’t wait for the onslaught of good films to begin. What is the one movie coming out between now and December 31st that people should be sure to keep on their radar? 

Christopher Campbell (@thefilmcynic) Nonfics/Film School Rejects

There are a number of great documentaries on their way to theaters this fall, but if I have to choose one to promote I pick Kirsten Johnson’s “Cameraperson.” It’s a hard sell if only because it’s so unique that it’s difficult to explain just how fresh and significant it is. »

‘Dekalog’ Exclusive Trailer: Krzysztof Kieślowski’s Magnum Opus Returns To Theaters This Fall

12 August 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Polish director Krzysztof Kieślowski received international acclaim for his filmic masterworks, such as “The Double Life of Veronique,” about a choir soprano and a French music teacher (both played by Irène Jacob) who share a mysterious and emotional bond, and “The Three Colors Trilogy,” three films loosely based on one of the political ideals in the motto of the French Republic: liberty, equality, fraternity.

Read More: Kieslowski, ‘Cat People,’ and the Coen Brothers Lead The Criterion Collection’s September Line-Up

But his magnum opus is “Dekalog” (or “The Decalogue”), a series of ten one-hour films inspired by the Ten Commandments. Originally made for Polish television, the series focuses on the residents of a housing complex in late-Communist Poland whose lives become intertwined as they face a variety of emotional dilemmas. The films grappled with complex existential questions about life, death, and everything in between. The series was acclaimed by critics worldwide, »

'Anthropoid' Review: Cillian Murphy Can't Save Weak WWII Epic

12 August 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Of all the World War II movies about the plots to kill the architects of the Third Reich, Anthropoid is guilty of being the dullest. And there’s really no excuse for it. Operation Anthropoid was the real name of the mission in which the Czechoslovakian resistance sought out Reinhard Heydrich, Hitler’s third-in-command, to perform the symbolic gesture of killing the rat bastard. The two paratroopers picked for the job are the oddly impassive Jan Kubiš (Jamie Dornan, nowhere near as sadistic as he was to poor Dakota Johnson »

Great Job, Internet!: Watch all of Stanley Kubrick’s favorite movies get paired with the posters they inspired

12 August 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

It’s always tempting to look back at the tastes of the masters, to see which art inspired the art that now inspires us. If we’re talking about movies, that often means Stanley Kubrick, who not only devoted his life to making movies, but to watching them as well. There are a couple of different lists of Kubrick’s favorite films floating around online—this one, put together by the British Film Institute and featuring input from Kubrick’s frequent collaborator and friend, Jan Harlan, is a pretty good start—but we’ll admit that just reading lists of movies can get a little dry. When we’re discussing one of the great visual stylists of modern film, is it so much to ask for a little candy for the eyes?

Alice Winocour on Disorder: "I thought also about Carpenter's films, the sound."

Following her enticing and spirited debut, Augustine, Alice Winocour again proves that she can package troubled states of mind in lush images and strong plots. Disorder (Maryland), written with Jean-Stéphane Bron, stars Matthias Schoenaerts (Jacques Audiard's Rust And Bone) and Diane Kruger with Paul Hamy (Katell Quillévéré's Suzanne, Maïwenn's My King), Zaïd Errougui-Demonsant, and Percy Kemp.

Vincent: "What is frightening for the character is to not have control over his own body."

Amy Adams Makes First Contact In Spooky Teaser For Arrival

9 August 2016 9:55 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Denis Villeneuve is a director that you daren’t take your eye off. Having broke onto the scene with the stellar one-two punch of Prisoners and last year’s narcotics thriller Sicario, the filmmaker will soon be bound for the neon-drenched streets of future La with Blade Runner 2 – but not before Villeneuve can squeeze out a sci-fi passion project.

It’s called Arrival, and imagines a scenario in which an alien space vessel has crash landed on Earth, spurring the governments of the world into motion as they attempt to make contact. Leading that mission is expert linguist Louise Banks (Amy Adams), who takes one giant – and potentially devastating – leap for humanity by travelling into the ship itself.

Also starring Jeremy Renner, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story alum Forest Whitaker, Tzi Ma, and Michael Stuhlbarg, Arrival is billed as an amalgamation of a Stanley Kubrick and a Steven Spielberg movie, »

First Look at Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner in Sci-Fi Thriller Arrival

8 August 2016 11:42 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last year, Paramount brought on stars Jeremy Renner and Amy Adams for a new alien thriller known as Story Of Your Life. We haven't heard much about the movie since then, although the studio did showcase the project during its CinemaCon presentation in April. It seems the studio has landed on a new title, Arrival, with the studio debuting the first two photos featuring Jeremy Renner and Amy Adams. We also have word that the studio has settled on a November 11 release date, with the first trailer debuting tomorrow, August 9.

The story is based on Ted Chiang's 1998 novella Story Of Your Life, which centers on a linguist named Louise Banks (Amy Adams), who is brought in by the government to decipher an extraterrestrial language when alien ships arrive on Earth. Jeremy Renner stars as a theoretical physicist who is trying to determine what the aliens really want. USA Today »

Guillermo del Toro Interview: ‘At Home with Monsters’ and That Missing Sketchbook – Exclusive

8 August 2016 10:57 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

“There’s a love in the marvelous that intertwines in all my projects.” —Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein

“What is a ghost? A tragedy doomed to repeat itself time and time again? An instant of pain, perhaps. Something dead which still seems to be alive. An emotion, suspended in time. Like a blurred photograph. Like an insect trapped in amber.” — “The Devil’s Backbone”

 

Guillermo del Toro has trouble saying no. On the verge of starting production in Toronto on Fox Searchlight’s Cold War fantasy “The Shape of Water” and flying in to promote the opening of his Los Angeles Museum of Art exhibition “At Home with Monsters,” the Mexican filmmaker got on the phone with IndieWire. “I’m exhausted,” he admitted, “but this is light for me!”
