Bette Davis in All About Eve Returns to Movie Theaters March 5th and 8th

21 February 2017 2:47 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

   Fifty-seven years ago, All About Eve  received a remarkable 14 Oscar Nominations.   — a feat accomplished only two other times in Oscar  history, including this year’s 14 nominations for La La Land.  (The other was Titanic in 1997.) Just days after this year’s Oscar® statuettes are handed out, one of the most vicious, delicious, cynical and legendary sagas of show-business backstabbing returns to the silver screen: All About Eve  will play on more than 600 movie screens nationwide at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Sunday, March 5, and Wednesday, March 8. It’s a film filled with some of the most indelible performances ever committed to film, including Bette Davis at her disillusioned best, and Marilyn Monroe as her star was ascending.  Yet for all its glory, many people have never seen All About Eve in a movie theater … but movie fans around the country have that opportunity thanks to Fathom Events and Turner Classic Movies. »

Which Documentaries Help Make Sense of the World Today? — IndieWire Critics Survey

6 February 2017 10:58 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (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: This past Friday saw the release of Raoul Peck’s “I Am Not Your Negro,” a documentary that speaks to our present moment through the writings and actions of the late James Baldwin. What other documentaries — recent or not — might help people better understand and / or respond to the state of the world today?

Richard Brody (@tnyfrontrow), The New Yorker

“The state of the world today” is too big a matter for any one documentary, because there’s no one state of things, there’s an overwhelming diversity of experiences — and the history of movies is as much the history of the ones that it doesn’t show. »

As a teenager, many of my first and strongest movie impressions came not from the movies, but from certain critics. I memorized Robin Wood’s analysis before getting a look at Hitchcock’s Psycho. Raymond Durgnat introduced me to Georges Franju and Luis Buñuel, and I first learned to appreciate a number of great movies including The Barefoot Contessa from Richard Corliss, a terrific critic who championed writers over director-auteurs.

The Barefoot Contessa is a classically structured story, in that it could work as a novel; it’s told from several points of view. »
