Peacock Review

31 December 2013 4:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

 

 

  Director: Michael Lander.

  Starring: Cillian Murphy, Susan Sarandon, Ellen Page, Bill Pullman, Josh Lucas, Keith Carradine.

Certificate: 12.

Running Time: 87 Mins.

Extras: Welcome To Peacock featurette.

Peacock was originally filmed at the tail end of 2009 and had a limited Us release in 2010, but as happens with so many films, found itself trapped on the UK studio shelves until now. Having viewed the film it is easy to see why it took a while to see the light of day. The film isn’t bad, it’s just that the plot is so odd that it’s hard to pinpoint its target audience.

Set in the fictional town of Peacock, Nebraska, Murphy plays John and Emma, two personalities sharing one body. Fret not spoiler-avoiders, this isn’t giving away too much information as the audience is let into this secret during the opening moments. Confined to the house, hidden away from all other people, »

Blu-ray Review: Fantastic Set For Altman’s Beloved ‘Nashville’

29 December 2013 11:42 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

When I expressed excitement over the fact that Robert Altman’s stunning “Nashville” was being released in a Criterion Collection Blu-ray edition a few months back, a colleague asked me why I loved the film and I had trouble verbalizing my feelings about Altman’s sprawling, brilliant tapestry of characters. Watching the excellent new documentary about the making-of the film on the Criterion release makes it clear that I’m not alone.

Rating: 5.0/5.0

As the interview participants try to sum up why “Nashville” is so remarkable, they throw out a dozen or so different themes that the movies captures from the similarities between entertainment & politics to honor to pride to artistic integrity to what writer Joan Tewkesbury says is the film’s focus on how we will all eventually “be called on our shit.” Clearly, “Nashville” is not an easy movie to summarize. It is a landmark, revolutionary film in terms of structure, »

Review: Robert Altman's "Nashville" (1975) Criterion Blu-ray/DVD Dual Format Edition

10 December 2013 3:32 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Americana With Bite

By Raymond Benson

Robert Altman enjoyed a successful and critically-acclaimed run as a director in the 1970s, and for my money, Nashville is the pinnacle, the quintessential Altman Film. Along with M*A*S*H, and later works like A Wedding and Short Cuts, Nashville is a large ensemble picture with numerous characters coincidentally crisscrossing throughout the story, creating a style and structure that Altman made his own (it’s a safe bet that he was assuredly influenced by Jean Renoir’s 1939 classic, The Rules of the Game, which also displays a canvas of quirky characters interacting at a gathering). The “plot,” as it were, concerns the preparation and execution of a political campaign benefit concert—and the camera follows twenty-four eccentric souls around as it happens.

The citizens of Nashville, Tennessee, where the picture was shot on location, were very upset by Altman’s film. They »

“That’s the Movie, That’s the Kind of Overlapping Mess That Bob Loves:” Joan Tewkesbury on Writing Nashville

6 December 2013 1:47 PM, PST | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Robert Altman’s Nashville is one of the towering achievements of 1970s New Hollywood Cinema, a portrait of the hub of the country music scene by juggling a myriad of characters, from self-appointed king of the community Haven Hamilton (Henry Gibson) to its biggest star, Connie White (Karen Black), from the emotionally fragile Barbara Jean (Ronee Blakley) to comically intrepid BBC reporter Opal (Geraldine Chaplin) and campaigning politician Hal Phillip Walker (Thomas Hal Phillips), a presence seen but never heard. A huge, highly accomplished cast — which also includes Ned Beatty, Shelly Duvall, Lily Tomlin, Keith Carradine, Barbara Harris and a very young Jeff […] »

New on Video: Robert Altman’s ‘Nashville’

6 December 2013 8:58 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Nashville

Written by Joan Tewkesbury

Directed by Robert Altman

USA, 1975

At the Cannes preview screening of Apocalypse Now in 1979, Francis Ford Coppola infamously declared, “Apocalypse Now is not about Vietnam; it is Vietnam.” Watching Robert Altman’s 1975 opus Nashville, perhaps the best film in a career full of exceptional work, one gets the feeling that it isn’t really about America; it is America. With its eclectic cast of individuals from all walks of life (typical for Altman), its sprawling narrative of disjointed personal and professional connections (ditto), and its setting of a distinctly American city around the time of our nation’s bicentennial, Nashville comes across as more than a fictional depiction of characters embodying certain nationalistic traits; it truly feels like the film is America in a nutshell. In the words of Keith Carradine, it’s an “extraordinary accomplishment.”

Now, with The Criterion Collection release of the film »

Criterion Collection: Nashville | Blu-ray Review

3 December 2013 10:30 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Robert Altman’s Nashville resurfaces for the home video market in a nicely packaged DVD/Blu-ray combo set from Criterion. A Best Picture nominee from 1975, this sprawling satire both lampoons and laments the American Dream, which was beginning to show signs of serious leakage – if not outright rupture – by the mid 1970s. An American president, who two years earlier had been reelected by one of the largest margins in the nation’s history, had just resigned in disgrace while a long, bloody and bitterly divisive war had been revealed as corrupt and pointless. Yet, to the array of hopeful goofballs in Nashville, America was still the land of opportunity; its dark and dank country music venues the key to quick fame and easy riches.

As conceived by Altman and writer Joan Tewksbury, everything about Nashville is larger than life. From its massive melange of roughly two dozen principle characters to »

New DVD Blu-ray: 'The Wolverine,' 'The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones,' 'Argo: Extended Edition''

3 December 2013 10:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week

"The Wolverine"

What's It About? Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) is more human than X-Man in this stand-alone film that takes place in Japan. Not only has he lost his powers, but his memories of Jean Grey are driving him cuckoo. Which is too bad, because he's still got to fight off loads of gangsters, ninjas, and other slick villains -- including one green-eyed baddie from the past.

Why We're In: Director James Mangold ("Walk the Line," "3:10 to Yuma") balances fantastic action with a more serious sensibility that recalls samurai films of yore. Plus, you don't need to be an X-pert X-Men fan to enjoy this movie.

'Wolverine', 'Nashville' Criterion and 'Mortal Instruments' On DVD and Blu-ray This Week

3 December 2013 7:30 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Nashville (Criterion Collection) I still need to dig through the special features on Criterion's new release of Robert Altman's Nashville, but I have already watched the film and this new 2K restoration looks great, just as you would expect it to. Included is a 2000 audio commentary featuring Altman and most notably a newly produced, 71-minute making of documentary featuring interviews with the likes of Ronee Blakley, Keith Carradine, Michael Murphy, Allan Nicholls, Lily Tomlin, screenwriter Joan Tewkesbury, assistant director Alan Rudolph and Altman's widow, Kathryn Reed Altman. Of course, that's not all, but suffice to say it's a release that has fans of the film taken care of.

The Wolverine I've seen a lot of people on Twitter talking about how the extended edition of The Wolverine is incredibly bloody. What I haven't seen anyone saying is that actually makes it any better, because this was not a good movie. »
