'True Detective' Podcast: Season 2, Episode 6 'Church In Ruins' Plus Watch Episode 7 Preview

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

This week, things got pretty stabby and sexy on "True Detective." After being teased for weeks, we got taken into one of the creepy orgy parties that Ben Caspere was once so famous for throwing before he got brutally murdered, and oddly enough, it seems Stanley Kubrick got that world right in "Eyes Wide Shut." All that was missing was Rachel McAdams carrying around a napkin with the word "Fidelio" written on it. However, cheekiness aside, and as noted in our recap, quite a few character and plot pieces moved around in episode six, "Church In Ruins." (Clearly a metaphorical church, because no actual place of worship was harmed in this episode). Brad Brevet from Rope Of Silicon has jumped on the phone this morning to discuss the latest episode. While we've both been looking for a little more from the show this season, we can't deny we're still being drawn in, »

Mister Fincher and Monsieur Dreyer

"The enjoyment of a work of art, the acceptance of an irresistible illusion, constituting, to my sense, our highest experience of "luxury," the luxury is not greatest, by my consequent measure, when the work asks for as little attention as possible. It is greatest, it is delightfully, divinely great, when we feel the surface, like the thick ice of the skater's pond, bear without cracking the strongest pressure we throw on it. The sound of the crack one may recognise, but never surely to call it a luxury." —Henry James, from The Preface to The Wings of the Dove (1909) "[The critic’s] choice of best salami is a picture backed by studio build-up, agreement amongst his colleagues, a layout in Life mag (which makes it officially reasonable for an American award), and a list of ingredients that anyone’s unsophisticated aunt in Oakland can spot as comprising a distinguished film. This prize picture, »

Stanley Kubrick's 13 movies ranked from worst to best

26 July 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Stanley Kubrick was a sucker for order, so he might have appreciated the desire to catalogue his career. However, since his films often warn against placing too much faith in systems, perhaps he knew that this way madness lies.

Frankly, most of his films have fair claim to being number one, so establishing first amongst equals means some hard choices have been made along the way - just try not to trigger the doomsday device or start swinging the axe if you don't agree.

So without further ado, let's open the pod bay doors and enter the enigmatic, exceptional work of Stanley Kubrick.

13. Fear and Desire (1953)

Even a genius has to start somewhere. Already a successful magazine photographer and documentary maker, 24-year-old Kubrick directed his debut about a military mission on limited funds - it was shot silently with sound added later.

Plagued by difficulties, Kubrick later called it "a completely inept oddity, »

Watch: #Tbt - The Trailer for Stanley Kubrick's 'A Clockwork Orange' Will Send You Into A Vicious Fit

But of course you'd already know that if you've seen Stanley Kubrick's dystopian masterpiece, "A Clockwork Orange." For Alex DeLarge, the main baddie -- or goodie, depending where you stand on suppressive societies -- this involved being strapped to a chair while heavy doses of Nazi propaganda, conveniently scored to the tunes of Beethoven, were blasted at your face. You may think this exceptionally cruel, O my brothers, but don't forget Alex had beaten up an elderly vagrant, stolen a car, broken into a man's home, crippled him, »

Whatever you think of the results of the poll of critics the BBC's conducted to come up with its list of the "100 greatest American films," we can surely all agree that we're glad to have the notes on the top 25: Glenn Kenny, for example, on #1, Orson Welles's Citizen Kane, Stephanie Zacharek on #2, Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather, Ali Arikan on #4, Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, Bilge Ebiri on #6, F.W. Murnau's Sunrise, Molly Haskell on #11, Welles's The Magnificent Ambersons, Jonathan Rosenbaum on #18, Charles Chaplin's City Lights and so on. Also today: Ai Weiwei gets his passport back; remembering E.L. Doctorow—and more. » - David Hudson »

BBC Culture curates 100 best American films, courtesy of 62 international film critics

22 July 2015 5:01 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

BBC Culture has this week unveiled a new list of the top 100 American films, as voted for by a pool of international film critics from across the globe. The format of the poll was that any film that would make the list had to have recieved funding from a Us source, and the directors of the films did not need to be from the USA, nor did the films voted for need to be filmed in the Us.

Critics were asked to submit their top 10 lists, which would try to find the top 100 American films that while “not necessarily the most important, but the greatest on an emotional level”. The list, as you may have guessed, is very different to the lists curated by say the BFI or AFI over the years, so there are certainly a few surprises on here, with Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave (2013), Terrence Malick »

Scratching our heads at the BBC's top 100 American Movies of All-Time

21 July 2015 5:07 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

First off, let's make one thing clear.  We're not scratching our heads at Spike Lee's "Do The Right Thing" making the BBC's 100 greatest American films.  That movie, of which an image accompanies this post, not only made the list, but ranked appropriately at no. 25.  It's the rest of the selections that have us scratching and, yes, shaking our heads in disbelief. A wonderful page view driver, these sorts of lists make great fodder for passionate movie fans no matter what their age or part of the world they hail from.  There is nothing more entertaining than watching two critics from opposite ends of the globe try to debate whether "The Dark Knight" should have been nominated for best picture or make a list like this.  Even in this age of short form content where Vines, Shapchats and Instagram videos have captured viewers attention, movies will continue to inspire because »

'Citizen Kane' Tops BBC's List of "100 Greatest American Films", Where Does Your Favorite Landc

21 July 2015 11:46 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Leave it to the Brits to compile a list of the best American films of all-time. BBC Culture has published a list of what it calls "The 100 Greatest American Films", as selected by 62 international film critics in order to "get a global perspective on American film." As BBC Culture notes, the critics polled represent a combination of broadcasters, book authors and reviewers at various newspapers and magazines across the world. As for what makes an American filmc "Any movie that received funding from a U.S. source," BBC Culture's publication states, which is to say the terminology was quite loose, but the list contains a majority of the staples you'd expect to see. Citizen Kane -- what elsec -- comes in at #1, and in typical fashion The Godfather follows at #2. Vertigo, which in 2012 topped Sight & Sound's list of the greatest films of all-time, comes in at #3 on BBC Culture's list. »

BBC Names 100 Greatest U.S. Films

21 July 2015 9:56 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Every now and then a major publication or news organisation comes up with a top fifty or one hundred films of all time list - a list which always stirs up debate, discussion and often interesting arguments about the justifications of the list's inclusions, ordering and notable exclusions.

Today it's the turn of BBC Culture who consulted sixty-two international film critics including print reviews, bloggers, broadcasters and film academics to come up with what they consider the one-hundred greatest American films of all time. To qualify, the film had to be made by a U.S. studio or mostly funded by American money.

Usually when a list of this type is done it is by institutes or publications within the United States asking American critics their favourites. This time it's non-American critics born outside the culture what they think are the best representations of that culture. Specifically they were asked »

Why Ian McKellen turned down Mission: Impossible II

20 July 2015 11:21 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

"You can't say no to working with Tom Cruise", said Ian McKellen's agent. One day later, Gandalf and Magneto came calling...

Had fate taken a different journey, then Sir Ian McKellen may never have ended up as Gandalf or Magneto on the big screen. In fact, he came very, very close to a schedule clash that would have ruled him out of both roles.

Casting was underway for Mission: Impossible II at the end of the 1990s, and McKellen was offered a role in the movie, opposite Tom Cruise, who was just coming off his lengthy shoot for Stanley Kubrick's final movie, Eyes Wide Shut. So what happened? "They wouldn't let me see the whole script because I might have spilled the beans", McKellen told People. "I only got my scenes".

As it turned out, those scenes weren't enough. "Well, I couldn't judge from reading just those scenes what the script was like. »
