19 April 2017 10:53 PM, PDT | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

Isa of the day is a continuing series of profiles of very special international sales agents. Shoreline Entertainment, one of the longest running independent film production companies and international sales agencies, has expanded its management arm to foster Latin American and women driven projects. You can see its Cannes lineup here.

The company was founded in 1992 by CEO and film producer Morris Ruskin whose production “Glengarry Glen Ross” launched him into the top level of indie producers. Shoreline’s Latin American Division for Management and Production is meeting with great success in repping over 25 directors, writers, actors, DPs and more.

Two interviews here, one with Alex Flores, the head of the division and the other with Diana Elizabeth Torres, a California based actress and writer illuminate their strategy and mission.

'Awards Chatter' Podcast — Peter Bogdanovich (Film Legend)

10 April 2017 11:25 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

"I'm so sick of superheroes," says the filmmaker and writer on film Peter Bogdanovich as we sit down at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel to record an episode of The Hollywood Reporter's 'Awards Chatter' podcast. Of today's cinematic offerings, the 77-year-old — who is best known for a trio of films he directed in consecutive years during the early 1970s, when he was in his early thirties and at the vanguard of a 'New Hollywood' sometimes described as the 'American New Wave' — adds, 'It's devolved.

Ryan O’Neal & Barbra Streisand Ask What’S Up Doc? Saturday Morning at The Hi-Pointe

3 April 2017 3:31 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Don’t you dare strike that brave, unbalanced woman!”

What’S Up Doc? screens at St. Louis’ fabulous Hi-Pointe Theater this weekend as part of their Classic Film Series. It’s  Saturday, April 8th at 10:30am at the Hi-Pointe located at 1005 McCausland Ave., St. Louis, Mo 63117. The film will be introduced by Harry Hamm, movie reviewer for Kmox. Admission is only $5

I first went to see director Peter Bogdanovich’s What’S Up Doc? with my parents when I was 10 years old at the Esquire Theater (right around the corner from the Hi-Pointe!) back in ’72. We as a family had an uproariously good time (at least I think we did – that was a long time ago). Ryan O’Neal, as the poker-faced, straight-laced, hen-pecked, scholarly authority on rocks and musicality plays Howard Bannister, the perfect straight man to Barbra Streisand’s wandering, wise-cracking, lustful, but solidly grounded Judy Maxwell, »

Film Review: ‘Five Came Back’

1 April 2017 2:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

World War II taught the world to be distrustful of propaganda, as the public came to realize just how effectively cinema could be used to spread anti-Semitism and a lock-step, sieg-heil conformity to demagogues. And yet, among the many insights of Mark Harris’ richly researched book “Five Came Back” — which fleshed out an oft-overlooked chapter of Hollywood history while shading a far more over-scrutinized one in the vast military history canon — was director William Wyler’s view that “all film is propaganda.” Like a loaded weapon, the power and world-changing potential of a camera is all in who’s holding it, and where that person chooses to point it.

Now, Harris’ terrific book has inspired a glossy, if somewhat snooze-inducing Netflix miniseries, “Five Came Back,” directed by Laurent Bouzereau. Simultaneously released in New York and Los Angeles theaters for an Oscar-qualifying run (offering fodder for those awards prognosticators looking for »

Quad Cinema Will Relaunch with Films from Yang, Rivette, Kubrick, Fassbinder, Wertmüller, Coppola & More

21 March 2017 12:58 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Next month will mark the return of New York City’s Quad Cinema, a theater reshaped and rebranded as a proper theater via the resources of Charles S. Cohen, head of the distribution outfit Cohen Media Group. While we got a few hints of the line-up during the initial announcement, they’ve now unveiled their first full repertory calendar, running from April 14th through May 4th, and it’s an embarassment of cinematic riches.

Including the previously revealed Lina Wertmüller retrospective, one inventive series that catches our eye is First Encounters, in which an artist will get to experience a film they’ve always wanted to see, but never have, and in which you’re invited to take part. The first match-ups in the series include Kenneth Lonergan‘s first viewing Edward Yang‘s Yi YiNoah Baumbach‘s first viewing of Withnail and I, John Turturro‘s first viewing of Pather Panchali, »

Tower

21 March 2017 11:12 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

A fateful day is re-examined by its survivors, whose stories are told via a brilliant narrative arrangement, and the use of animated recreations is only one aspect of it. The Texas tower shootings put our present, everyday reign of violent terror in a humanist context. It’s not exploitative — the killer’s name is barely mentioned. It works, it’s riveting, and its positive message is one of calm sanity. Highly recommended.

From Paris to Netflix: The Long, Strange Journey of Orson Welles’ Last Movie, ‘The Other Side of the Wind’

20 March 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When Netflix announced March 14 it would be financing and distributing a finished cut of Orson Welles’ “The Other Side of the Wind,” the company opened a new chapter in one of the wildest, most frustrating sagas of film lore.

The legendary director shot his final film between 1970 and 1976, but a series of financial setbacks kept him from realizing his vision before his death in 1985. In the 32 years since, surviving members of the production had attempted to complete the project, but for legal reasons were unable to procure the more than 1,000 reels of negatives from a vault in Paris until the streaming giant stepped in this week.

The negatives are now safely in Los Angeles, in the hands of the team that will edit the film, according to a March 14 note from producer Filip Jan Rymsza. A short video released the next day on Yahoo details the process of shipping the reels. »

Can Crowds Fund Anything?

15 March 2017 11:52 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

No, but Netflix can. Our streaming overlords buy themselves some Orson Welles.

Movies need money. They can win hearts, minds and lay the ground for thousands of little websites like this one to talk about them, but ultimately they need someone with bags of cash behind the scenes. Netflix, proud owner of one thousand hours of original content among other things, just dumped some of their cash bags on a movie called The Other Side of the Wind. It was filmed by Orson Welles in the early ’70s, stared Susan Strasberg, John Huston and Peter Bogdanovich, and was never fully edited or released to a general audience.

Welles’ movie had been initially funded by a mysterious Spanish producer (rumored to be Andrés Vicente Gómez) who, in turn, embezzled the money. It was then funded by Mehdi Bushehri, brother of the Iranian Shah, whose assets were seized after the Shah was overthrown in the Iranian Revolution. Then »

Netflix to Resurrect One of Cinema’s Lost Treasures: Orson Welles’ ‘The Other Side of the Wind’

15 March 2017 8:57 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Plus: Jordan Peele makes history, a couple new trailers, and perfect shots.~

In 1970, renowned auteur and wine lover Orson Welles began production on a film entitled The Other Side of the Wind about a legendary director who’d been in European exile for a number of years but had at last returned stateside to make his masterpiece, which bears the same name as this film. John Huston was cast as the director alongside such talents as Peter Bogdonovich, Susan Strasberg, Lili Palmer, Cameron Crowe, Dennis Hopper, Natalie Wood, and Edmond O’Brien. It was, naturally, meant to be Welles’ own comeback film, a send up of Hollywood, art, and the myriad struggles to unite the two. Shot mockumentary style over a six-year period, the film became more famous for its struggles, and even though principal photography was completed, financial and legal issues resulted in the negatives being impounded; Welles wouldn’t live to get them back.

According to The New York Times, producers for the unfinished Orson Welles film The Other Side of The Wind have received a committment from Netflix in order to finish production on the movie that various people have been trying to get made since the late 70's. The film revolves around main character Jake Hanaford, a director struggling to get back into the Hollywood mainstream with a movie that would be his comeback. Set at his birthday party, the director tries to wrangle funds to finish the movie. Intercut between scenes at his party are clips from the film itself, which Welles filmed as a satire on directors of that time such as Michelangelo Antonioni

The film has been in production for well over 40 years. Notoriously entangled in rights issues, the very negatives had been sitting in a vault in Paris while the fate of the film was fought in court by various parties, »
