Mexican director Everardo Valerio Gout's Days of Grace adopts a multi-strand narrative akin to Latino scorchers Amores Perros (2000) and City of God (2002) before supercharging it with the sort of dynamic energy seen in the best works of Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino. To celebrate the home entertainment release of Days of Grace this coming Monday (21 April), we have Three DVD copies of Gout's slick, stylish and adrenaline-fuelled crime epic to give away to our avid readers, courtesy of the fantastic team at genre specialists Chelsea Films. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven't already, 'Like' us at facebook.com/CineVueUK or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

Early evening in Hong Kong and Christopher Doyle is cracking open a beer in his studio. What's he been doing today? "I can't tell you!" Why? "I don't remember! But it was good. It was good for her. It was good for me. The usual stuff."
In Doyle terms, this is indeed the usual stuff. Throughout our one-hour Skype session he rants, raves, laughs (a lot, uproariously, mostly at his own jokes), gets angry, gets upset, and it's never entirely clear whether he's speaking on or off the record. A gloriously unbridled and candid interviewee, he can't get his words out fast enough.

The ridiculous number of F-bombs dropped in Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street has become a source of much amusement for online spoofs and comedians since the movie was released at the start of the year.
However, Screen Junkies have tried a slightly different take on the F-words in the movie in their latest comedy cut of the film.
'Wolf of Wall Street: Just the F words' is the one Wolf of Wall Street viral video that actually is safe to watch at work. It's all the F-words, without the F-bombs. Have a watch above to see what we mean.
The video is fabulous, funny and flipping fantastic.
The Screen Junkies team released one of their 'Honest' trailers for the Leonardo DiCaprio film earlier this month, which was equally hilarious for anyone who has seen the film. »
Happy 80th birthday, Shirley MacLaine!
The legendary, award-winning actress, who was born April 24, 1934 in Richmond, Va, started out as a dancer and got her big break on Broadway. She made her first film with Alfred Hitchcock, became a Rat Pack regular, flirted briefly with politics but has never stopped acting as she enters her 7th decade in Hollywood.
She started off as a lovably kooky ingenue, but is known today for her cantankerous matriarch roles in "Downton Abbey," "Bernie," "Steel Magnolias," "Guarding Tess," and, of course, her Oscar-winning role as Aurora Greenway in "Terms of Endearment."
Her next gig is a singing and dancing role on "Glee," of course. Happy Birthday to one of the most talented, most colorful character actresses of all time.
1. She was named after Shirley Temple.
2. She's been performing since age 3, when she began doing ballet.
3. As a girl, she pretended she was Rita Hayworth, since »

A Couple of Heirs of Travis Bickle:
“A 34-year-old messenger still living at home, Rupert Pupkin (Robert De Niro) dreams of becoming a stand-up comedy star. To force fate’s hand, he stalks and kidnaps his idol, the TV talk show host Jerry Langford (Jerry Lewis). Martin Scorsese’s 1983 movie “The King of Comedy” not only told a story but identified a malaise. Call it Pupkinitis.”
The Future of Film and Why Story Still Matters:
“The Tribeca Film Festival is underway, running from April 21-26. You can visit its website here. If you are in the New York area this week, check it out. Indiewire ran a recent interview with Jane Rosenthal, Tff Co-Founder and CEO, and she touches on two subjects of specific interest to screenwriters.”
You may have heard that Martin Scorsese‘s The Wolf Of Wall Street holds the record for the most F-bombs in a narrative feature film (the documentary “Fuck” obviously wins the all time record). ScreenJunkies decided to create a two-and-a-half minute cut of the film featuring only the F words said in the movie. But those […]

Back when Martin Scorsese unleashed his decadent, no-holds-barred Oscar nominee, The Wolf of Wall Street, on a holiday movie crowd, the film was celebrated for its foul mouth and dirty mind. In fact, we reported that the film set a record for the amount of curse words used (as well as becoming Scorsese.s highest-grossing film to date). But what if we told you you could see a Safe For Work supercut of The Wolf of Wall Street.s "F" words. That.s right! Bring the kids around the computer, rank up the volume, and play the above clip. We.re not kidding. It.s safe. Get it? Fine, fine. It.s a gag. But a pretty clever one posted by ScreenJunkies . the guys who are best known for bringing the Honest Trailer approach to massively popular movies. In fact, they gave The Wolf of Wall Street the Honest Trailer »
Austrian director Michael Glawogger has tragically died at the age of 54 while shooting in Africa. For more on this brilliant director and his working method read Daniel Kasman's interview from Venice about Glawogger's last film, Whores' Glory (2011). Mubi Us is in the middle of a 30-day run of the director's Workingman's Death (2005).
"Offering streaming links to almost their entire programme, the festival can be consumed from a couch, in sporadic order and with no regard for curatorial intent, which beggars the question: Is a collection of Vimeo links really a film festival? Should this sound like an ontological foray into digital existence, apologies, but the issue is not going away; Hot Docs likewise offers a multitude of link-based screeners to accredited journalists. It is a less than »

By now we all know just how many F-bombs are in Martin Scorsese's The Wolf Of Wall Street. The tale of greed and excess starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill was lauded by many and received many considerations for Best Picture in 2013 despite the explicit language and record breaking profanity in the film. But, have you heard all of the F-words in the movie? The geniuses over at Screen Junkies have been kind enough to compile a supercut of every single F-word in The Wolf Of Wall Street »

Someone apparently counted every single use of the word "f**k" in The Wolf of Wall Street and the tally was 544. Now I didn't count each instance in the following edit of Martin Scorsese's film, but Screen Junkies went ahead and made this "Just the F Words" supercut and while you might think you know what you're in for... you're not. yt id="mn49DiI9Gag" width="500" Now, probably more to your expectations, here's Screen Junkies' "Honest Trailer" for the film where they get into the more explicit details. yt id="BzpIB5TJ7LI" width="500" »

There are few auteurs as instantly recognizable and divisive as Stanley Kubrick, few filmmakers as idiosyncratic or groundbreaking. His work spans the entirety of life itself–sometimes in the same film–and has inspired almost as much derision as hosannas. There is no easy consensus on Kubrick’s films–though you may not be terribly surprised by our writers’ choice for his best, it’s hard to imagine that your ranking of his work will line up wholly with ours–nor on the messages imparted within. Is The Shining secretly about the moon landing? Is 2001? What is he really saying about violence in society in A Clockwork Orange? And so on. Closing out (some weeks late, granted) our monthly theme on his works, here is Sound on Sight’s ranking of the films of Stanley Kubrick. Enjoy. Share. Debate. We know you’ll want to debate.

Back in the day (mostly) before he was a big time director, Jon Favreau hosted a show on IFC called Dinner for Five. It was a pretty simple concept: Favreau and four guests — a mix of actors, writers, directors, and comedians — would eat dinner and shoot the bull, and then they would cut the best bits into a 30 minute episode. It was great. The casual atmosphere made everyone more candid and relaxed than they might be on a traditional talk show, plus they might be drunk. Dinner for Five is how I know that Frank Darabont lived above Tom Cruise’s garage to write Mission Impossible 3, and he loved it. (Darabont wrote the first draft. He's not credited, but in the same episode he talks about how much he hates the WGA's rules for writing credits.) Also, in the Season 2 premiere a Daredevil era Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner appear »

Its selection enhances the Australian profile at the festival with David Michôd.s The Rover getting a midnight screening out of competition and Rolf de Heer.s Charlie.s Country showing in the Un Certain Regard sidebar.

In a joint statement with his producer Liz Kearney, he continued, .We are feeling so excited and proud to have our debut feature film selected for Directors' Fortnight. We are really looking forward to sharing These Final Hours with an international audience for the first time and could not ask for a better platform to premiere the film internationally in. »

The narrow focus of the talk came as a surprise, as Schoonmaker was thought to be talking about a number of the films she has worked on, but she said she decided to focus on Raging Bull partly to honor its star, Robert De Niro, co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival.
“I’m doing this because it’s one of the most thrilling films I ever helped edit. The direction is brilliant, the camera work superb, the acting from De Niro and [Joe] Pesci is stuning. I mean what can you say about the work Robert De Niro did in this movie? To say nothing of the great music and sound effects and editing,” Schoonmaker explained.
Schoonmaker dissected various clips and scenes from the film, »
It's no surprise that Thelma Schoonmaker was the Tribeca Film Festival's choice for a panel about editing in film. Few editors have had more fruitful collaborations than the one between Schoonmaker and Martin Scorsese, which began in 1967 on "Who's That Knocking on My Door" and resumed in 1980 with "Raging Bull." Schoonmaker has edited all of Scorsese's features since that LANdmark, but for "The Cutting Room: An Insight to the Edit Suite" masterclass that took place over the weekend in New York, she chose to focus entirely on key sequences in "Raging Bull" and the stories behind them. Here are a few highlights from the talk. On Scorsese and Michael Powell. Schoonmaker touched upon the friendship her late husband forged with Scorsese before the making of "Raging Bull." "Michael described Scorsese finding Powell living in obscurity and pummeling him with fast-talking questions about the Powell and Pressburger films, and Michael says in his autobiography, »

We now live in an era where almost everything is available with the click of a button. Want to spend a weekend diving into the cinema of John Cassavates? You can stream it. How about spending your vacation catching up with Martin Scorsese's films? Throw it on your phone and go. But sometimes it does help to have a guide to put it all in perspective, and short of film school, here's another way you can get your bearings on over 100 years of movie history. The Ministry of Cinema has put together the 6-part video series, "A Timeline of World Cinema," that takes you on a roughly one-hour journey from the silent era right up until today. Each episode runs about ten minutes long and covers Pre-Classical Cinema, Rise Of The Studio System, The Golden Age Of Hollywood, Foreign Wave, New Hollywood and finally, Contemporary Cinema. It's a good »

And here we are. The day after Easter and we’ve reached the top of the mountain. While compiling this list, it’s become evident that true religious films just aren’t made anymore (and if they are, they are widely panned). That being said, religious themes exist in more mainstream movies than ever, despite there being no deliberate attempts to dub the films “religious.” Faith, God, whatever you want to call it – it’s influenced the history of nations, of politics, of culture, and of film. And these are the most important films in that wheelhouse. There are only two American films in the top 10, and only one of them is in English.

10. Andrei Rublev (1966)
Directed by Andrei Tarkovsky
A brutally expansive biopic about the Russian iconographer divided into nine chapters. Andrei Rublev (Anatoly Solonitsyn) is portrayed not as a silent monk, but a motivated artist working against social ruin, »

Of the seventies auteurs, Friedkin . along with Martin Scorsese . is my favorite. Through reading his (excellent) biography, .The »

A quarter-century ago, Kevin Costner hit a double-play, following up "Bull Durham" with "Field of Dreams" and becoming king of the sports movie. Twenty-five years later, as "Field of Dreams" marks its 25th anniversary (it was released on April 21, 1989), Costner is back with "Draft Day." The movie's about football, not baseball, and Costner's character plays in the executive suite, not on the field, but his mere presence still offers a reminder of great sports movies past.
And after all, isn't nostalgia a key element of sports movies? "Field of Dreams" makes this explicit -- we long for the sports heroes of our childhood, for a supposed long-gone golden age of our preferred sport, as a way of connecting with our past and bridging the generational divide that separates us as adults from our parents. Sports movies offer more than just the drama of winners and losers, or the journey from dream to achievement, »
