Before it screened, Tim Burton's biopic “Big Eyes” was seen as a slam-dunk Oscar vehicle for Amy Adams. After all, Adams, who stars as painter Margaret Keane, has lost all five of her Oscar bids: four in supporting -- “Junebug” (2005), “Doubt” (2008), “The Fighter” (2010), and “The Master” (2012) -- and last year in lead (“American Hustle). However, now that this Weinstein Company film has unspooled, the buzz is all about Christoph Waltz who could well contend for his third Oscar in six years. -Break- Oscar experts: Eddie Redmayne narrows Michael Keaton lead, 'Selma' cracks top five Waltz won Supporting Actor twice for his scene-stealing work in two Quentin Tarantino films -- “Inglorious Basterds” (2009) and “Django Unchained” (2012) -- which were also produced by Oscar wiz Harvey Weinstein.

Jack Nicholson opens up off camera to Gracie and she thinks about Easy Rider, Kate Moss presents an Olivier Award, Greta Scacchi’s daughter Leila George abets in arranging a revealing meeting with Lou Adler, and Michael White's style shines through. The good advice Michael gave Gracie when meeting again Quentin Tarantino's producer Lawrence Bender rings true for anyone who finds themselves in her place.
Gracie Otto's The Last Impresario starts out by recounting how she met White at the opening night party of the 2010 Cannes Film Festival. He gave her his number to come to dinner and she decided to make a film about the man everybody famous was flocking to and most people had never heard of.

Yes, they've downgraded from murder to kidnapping. Hey, times are tough all over.
But does this sequel bring the yuks? Or should you skip this one and instead just go to town on Thanksgiving leftovers? Read on to find out!

Giving the deluxe version of superstar DJ and producer David Guetta’s new album a spin, it soon becomes clear why previously released promo singles “Bad” and”‘Shot Me Down” are kept apart from the main body of Listen and repackaged as bonus tracks.
Inspired by Cher’s “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down),” later covered by Nancy Sinatra and then pushed into peoples’ hearts via Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill Volume 1 – the Frenchman gives the classic song a new twist. Alongside Skylar Grey, “Shot Me Down” sees the decades-old track enveloped by Guetta’s rampant, pulsating club sounds for a modern, worthwhile remake. Not content with hooking up with Grey again on the darker, primal “Rise,” “Bad” featuring Showtek and Vassy, also races towards the dance floor with its thumping bassline and laser sharp synths.
In short, the handful of cuts stuck onto the end of Listen are »

Directed by Mario Bava.
A ruthless Roman gang conducts a violent kidnapping and car-jacking after a botched robbery leaves death and destruction in their wake…
Rabid Dogs, or Cani Arrabbiati in the original Italian, is a frenetic crime drama from a true master of acerbic nerve-shredding, Mario Bava. In something of a move away from the supernatural/Gothic elements of his earlier career of films such as Black Sabbath and Mask of Satan, this late period Bava creates a modern 70’s crime scenario captured in real time.
Pitched at the hard-boiled edge of the giallo world, this tougher than tough slice of gangsterism leaves you imagining it on repeat at Quentin Tarantino’s house. Indeed this is meant as a compliment, as the street smart codes of revisionist »

Pulp Fiction has just turned twenty years old. While that may unfortunately make some readers feel a bit old, it also makes it a good time to look back at what was a milestone in the world of film.
Made on a relatively small $8m budget, Pulp Fiction would go on to make $214m at the box-office and in essence became the Star Wars of independent film. A non-linear movie in which characters sit around and talk about foot massages and burgers had done monster business and it set the stage for the independent boom of the mid-1990’s.
The film was effortlessly cool and won over even the surliest film critic with its sharp dialogue, »

This 1998 interview with Paul Thomas Anderson has been online for a while; credit to The Seventh Art for finally bringing it to my attention. Talking with fellow director Mike Figgis after only two features under his belt, a supremely unfazed Anderson eats pizza while holding forth on Boogie Nights‘ origins as a short film equally inspired by Zelig and This is Spinal Tap, shares a lot of opinions about inadequate porn performances, discusses a written-but-never-filmed sex scene for Don Cheadle’s character, and generally shows almost no self-consciousness about saying whatever he wants. Emblematic of the era sentence: “I was actually with Quentin Tarantino the other […] »
