(New) Trailer Watch: Stanley Kubrick’s 2001

9 minutes ago | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

The match cut, “Also Sprach Zarathustra,” Hal — it’s all here, along with praise from Christopher Nolan and Alfonso Cuaron, in this brand new trailer for Stanley Kubrick’s classic 2001. Here’s the Hollywood Reporter: Ahead of the digitally restored film’s special limited U.K. release on Nov. 28 as part of the British Film Institute’s “Sci-Fi: Days of Fears and Wonder” season, a new trailer commission by the BFI and Warner Bros. has now been unveiled. Created by Ignition Creative London, the trailer is the first for this title in four decades, and uses Hal as the central figure to create […] »

Watch: 'The Simpsons' Halloween Tribute To Stanley Kubrick Riffs On 'Eyes Wide Shut,' 'Full Metal Jacket,' 'Barry Lyndon' & '2001'

1 hour ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For a show that has been around long enough to see some of its audience grow up, get a college degree and get married, we'll give credit where it's due: "The Simpsons" can still pull out a gem from time to time. For the show's 25th "Treehouse Of Horror" episode, the segment "A Clockwork Yellow" featured a pretty clever and extended riff on Stanley Kubrick's oeuvre. The story finds Moe leading a gang of droogs comprised of Homer, Carl and Lenny into an "Eyes Wide Shut"-like party, and from there "Full Metal Jacket," "Barry Lyndon," "2001: A Space Odyssey," and obviously "A Clockwork Orange" get playfully ribbed. It's executed with a clear affection for Kubrick's films. And of course, as long time fans know, "The Simpsons" previously played on Kubrick's "The Shining" with "The Shinning" from "Treehouse Of Horror V." Not to mention the number of nods to Kubrick. »

Watch: New Trailer For UK Theatrical Re-Release Of Stanley Kubrick's '2001: A Space Odyssey' Will Give You Chills

2 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There was been a lot of talk lately —particularly in light of Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar" on the horizon— about movies that must be seen on the big screen. But there are few that can lay that claim with as much confidence as Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey." And now for lucky folks in the UK, his sci-fi masterpiece is returning to cinemas and a terrific new trailer has arrived. The director's brain-bender was a must-see event back in 1968, and that's no less true now. The film, shot on 65mm, is a visual wonder that still needs the all enveloping theatrical experience to truly appreciate its scope and scale, taking viewers from the dawn of man, to the edge of the universe and beyond. It's ambitious, beautiful and bold even more than four decades later.  Check out the new, theatrical re-release trailer below, and for even more check »

Watch: 'The Simpsons' Goes Full Kubrick in Latest "Treehouse of Horror" Episode

12 hours ago | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The Simpsons has paid tribute to Stanley Kubrick more than once in the past, and most famously in its "Treehouse of Horror" episode from way back in 1994 when the show sent its loveable family to become caretakers at Mr. Burns' mansion. Groundskeeper Willie discovered that Bart had the Shinning, Homer went crazy from no TV and no beer, and the rest was TV history. Now, 20years later, The Simpsons revisisted Kubrick for another "Treehouse of Horror," only this time they didn't limit themselves to just one of the director's movies. They created an entire segment called "A Clockwork Yellow" that transformed Homer, Moe, Lenny and Carl into the main gang from A Clockwork Orange and thrust them into a story that plays out like a...

Watch: 'The Simpons' Do Kubrick

17 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

During last night's "Treehouse of Horror" episode of "The Simpsons" the long-running animated show yet again paid tribute to Stanley Kubrick, though this time they went all out. While I didn't seem to notice any references to Lolita, Fear and Desire or The Killing it's easy to spot references to Eyes Wide Shut and A Clockwork Orange as the main inspiration along with asides to Full Metal Jacket, Barry Lyndon and a great use of an iPhone standing in as the monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey as Homer goes ape. Give it a watch below. »

Watch 'The Simpsons' Parody Stanley Kubrick Films in Halloween Episode

21 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The Simpsons continued their annual Halloween tradition on Sunday night with the series' 25th "Treehouse of Horror" episode. Like past installments, it featured three short segments – but the clear highlight was "A Clockwork Yellow," a spirited spoof of Stanley Kubrick's iconic filmography. The above clip, courtesy of Vulture, features a rapid-fire spree of Kubrick references – from 2001: A Space Odyssey to Eyes Wide Shut to Full Metal Jacket to (briefly) Barry Lyndon – but focuses on a Clockwork Orange-centric plot.

The Simpsons’ Stanley Kubrick Tribute Was the Best ‘Treehouse of Horror’ Parody in Years

23 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Twenty years ago (wow!), The Simpsons aired what is arguably the best Treehouse of Horror episode ever, "Treehouse of Horror V," which featured the show's parody of The Shining. Last night, on this year's installment, the show went back to the Stanley Kubrick well hard. It centered on a Clockwork Orange parody, which means you finally get to hear Moe talk in Nadsat, but along the way, the show nails a bunch of other Kubrick films — Full Metal Jacket, 2001, Eyes Wide Shut, and even Barry Lyndon ("Even I forget what this is in reference to") — before giving us a yellow version of the director himself. Watch a short clip below. Or if you have Hulu Plus, you can watch the full episode there, Uncle Moneybags. »

Obsessed with Pop Culture: Best of the Week

18 October 2014 2:48 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

 

Departure Day: When it comes to TV, is closure important?

If you happen to follow a decent number of TV critics on Twitter, you may have noticed a minor eruption of late. A schism has emerged, prompted by accounts like The Cancellation Bear, which concerns itself solely with the topic of whether or not series are likely to survive based on current ratings patterns. That may sound perfectly innocent on its own, but quite a few admirers have expressed the notion that they refuse to dive into a series if they get the sense that it will come to a premature end, thereby robbing them of closure. This idea has, naturally, left many critics incensed: isn’t TV a medium founded on chaos, on the thrill of working within limitations and at the whims of fickle audiences? Moreover, isn’t it silly to always want tidy resolution in the context »

Christopher Nolan: ‘Interstellar’ More Akin to ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ Than Batman Movies

18 October 2014 12:32 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The enigma that is the space odyssey “Interstellar” will get solved when the film hits theaters in November, but until then, Christopher Nolan has revealed a few clues.

The director divulged in a cover story for Entertainment Weekly that the movie is more comparable to the Stanley Kubrick classic “2001: A Space Odyssey” than his own Batman films. Unlike his “Dark Knight” trilogy, Nolan insists that “Interstellar” can be experienced on its own, independently of the characters. Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine and Casey Affleck are among the actors who bring the characters to life.

“This is the first film I have made where the actual experience of the film is paramount to the audience,” Nolan told EW. “You would think that’s the case with Batman movies, but it’s not. They’re more dependent on the reaction of characters on screen. ‘Interstellar’ is different. It »

Update: The list has been amended to include the three segments from "Treehouse of Horror Xxv." That's right: In honor of The Simpsons' 25th (!) annual Halloween special, EW didn't just rank the top 25 "Treehouse of Horror" segments. We took things a step further by ranking every single "Treehouse" segment ever seen on the show—and you'll find entries 72 through 26 in the list below. Even when longtime fans sniff that The SimpsonsGolden Age is long past, they can agree that late-period Simpsons Halloween shows still pack a punch. Why? Because "Treehouse" segments give the series' writers a break »

The Past, Present, and Future of Real-Time Films Part Four

The Digital Era: Real-time Films From 2000 To Today

40 years before, in 1960, lighter cameras enabled a cinéma vérité-flavored revolution in street realism. By 2000, new digital cameras suggested a whole new set of promises, including telling stories that would have been unimaginable within minimum budgets for features even ten years before. In 2000, film purists warned that digital still didn’t look as good as celluloid, but that didn’t stop at least three innovative filmmakers from boldly going where no filmmaker had gone before. Mike Figgis’ Timecode (2000) was the first star-supported (Salma Hayek, Stellan Skarsgard, Holly Hunter, among many others) single-shot project since Rope, underlining that earlier film’s timelessness. If Run Lola Run could do one story three times, then Timecode would do three or four stories one time: the movie is four separate ninety-minute shots shown all at the same time, each in one quadrant of the screen. Where do you look? »

The Past, Present, and Future of Real-Time Films Part One

17 October 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

What do film directors Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, Agnès Varda, Robert Wise, Fred Zinnemann, Luis Buñuel, Alain Resnais, Roman Polanski, Sidney Lumet, Robert Altman, Louis Malle, Richard Linklater, Tom Tykwer, Alexander Sokurov, Paul Greengrass, Song Il-Gon, Alfonso Cuarón, and Alejandro Iñárritu have in common? More specifically, what type of film have they directed, setting them apart from fewer than 50 of their filmmaking peers? Sorry, “comedy” or “drama” isn’t right. If you’ve looked at this article’s headline, you’ve probably already guessed that the answer is that they’ve all made “real-time” films, or films that seemed to take about as long as their running time.

The real-time film has long been a sub-genre without much critical attention, but the time of the real-time film has come. Cuarón’s Gravity (2013), which was shot and edited so as to seem like a real-time film, floated away with the most 2014 Oscars, »

The Best of “Movie Poster of the Day,” Part 8

17 October 2014 11:33 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Above: Italian poster for Confidential Agent (Herman Shumlin, USA, 1945). Artist: Luigi Martinati (1893-1984).

The most popular poster I’ve posted on  Tumblr in the past three months—and actually the second most “liked” poster I’ve posted in the three years I’ve been doing this—was this Italian design by the great Luigi Martinati for a lesser known Lauren Bacall vehicle, but one in which the late star was unusually front and center. (You can see more of Bacall’s posters here.)

The rest of the top twenty are a wild variety of old (three for films from the 1920s, no less) and new (two 2014 releases). I was especially pleased to see Dorothea Fischer-Nosbisch’s superb 1967 design for a Festival of Young German Film get such attention. A lot of other design greats are featured: Saul Bass, the Stenberg brothers, Macario Gomez, Karl Oskar Blase and Josef Fenneker. And »

Sneak a peek at 'The Simpsons' Halloween episode 'Treehouse of Horror Xxv'

17 October 2014 9:49 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

On Sunday night at 8 p.m., after it gets all dark and creepy, The Simpsons will offer up a Fright of 1000 Laughs (or however many laughs can technically fit in a 30-minute episode). In the animated Fox comedy's 25th annual Halloween installment, "Treehouse of Horror"—that's Xxv for Roman numeral lovers— Bart will attend a school located in a southern and unsavory neighborhood (hell), the Simpsons will be haunted by... the Simpsons from The Tracey Ullman Show, and a Stanley Kubrick parody/homage (paromage?) will make your eyes go wide before they shut.

Inside 'Interstellar,' Christopher Nolan's emotional space odyssey

16 October 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

They say we don't go to outer space anymore. But Christopher Nolan is doing a pretty good job of faking it. It's October 2013, and we are on the set of code name Flora's Letter, a.k.a. Interstellar, an epic sci-fi adventure that represents the beginning of the director's post-Batman life. Working on the same soundstage where he once built a dank batty cave for Christian Bale to skulk in, the British-American helmer has constructed a starship to take Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway across the universe to find salvation for the human race. On screen that ship, the Endurance, »

BFI London Film Festival Review: World War One Drama 'Testament Of Youth' With Alicia Vikander & Kit Harington

14 October 2014 3:32 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The First World War was one of the greatest, most terrible conflicts and losses of life in the history of humanity, but curiously, it's been relatively under-represented on screen, aside from a smattering of pictures like Oscar-winner "All Quiet On The Western Front," Stanley Kubrick's "Paths Of Glory," Peter Weir's "Gallipoli," and most recently, Steven Spielberg's "War Horse." Perhaps it's because it was less of a just war than its bigger sequel, perhaps it's that it was a particularly gruesome slog of mud and sacrifice, perhaps it was because America only entered the war three years in, but there's no doubt that the conflict has been seen in the movies much less than WWII, or even Vietnam. This year, however, marks one hundred years since the beginning of the war, and so it was inevitable that related movies would start to appear. The first out of the gates is "Testament Of Youth, »

The Noteworthy: Twin Peaks 2016, Friedkin in the Closet, "And the Other Way is Wrong"

Edited by Adam Cook

Above: there is no news this week more monumental than that of the return of Twin Peaks. In 2016, we'll have nine new episodes, all directed by David Lynch. The 72nd issue of Senses of Cinema is now online, and amidst a plethora of content, features an amazing dossier on "one of the true legends of Australian screen culture," John Flaus. Also included is a piece by Tony McKibbin on a new Alain Robbe-Grillet box set—and in Mubi Us, we're currently hosting a retrospective on the Robbe-Grillet featuring Trans-Europ-Express, L'immortelle, Eden and After, and Successive Slidings of Pleasure. Writing for Reverse Shot, Adam Nayman offers his two cents on Mia Hansen-Love's Eden:

"Time is a weapon in the movies of Mia Hansen-Løve. The gaping narrative holes in the middles of All Is Forgiven, The Father of My Children, and Goodbye First Love are exit wounds, »
