Getting on Track: Top 10 Films About Trains

22 July 2014 1:25 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Trains in cinema have always made for an excitable source within the realm of the comedy, drama, mystery or suspense pertaining to the plot of a particular film. The setting for the featured trains as the driving force of entertainment serves as the heart and soul of the action for the most part.

In some cases using trains as a last minute symbolic theme for a film can generate great impact that thrives and questions the motives and urgency of the characters and storyline (i.e. the climax scene in The Defiant Ones where the salt-and-pepper escaped convicts Tony Curtis and Sidney Poitier try and make a desperate dash for permanent freedom on a speeding train en route to permanent freedom).  Perhaps a train could also add an extra element of action-packed excitement in a film’s conclusive ending such as the uncontrollable commuter train in Speed?

Salt and Pepper: Top 10 Black and White Movie Tandems

5 July 2014 8:54 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

When mixing black and white movie characters as either friends or foes on the big screen should not produce any gray areas at all. Whether amiable or adversarial the pairing of interracial tandems makes for an interesting sociological study in cinema where tension, togetherness, stereotypical profiling and mutual or reluctant acceptance makes for some captivating film fodder.

Sure, in many ways it is an overused cliched in the movies to produce racial tandems for the sake of the entertainment to allow the creative juices to overflow. In Salt and Pepper: Top 10 Black and White Movie Tandems we will take a look at various “salt and pepper” teams as they come together in the name of law and justice, hostile necessity, friendly frivolity or professional attachment to bring movie audiences a sense of adventure and curiosity in the name of comedic or dramatic license. Maybe you have your favorite cultural »

Mazursky and Jill Clayburgh on the set of An Unmarried Woman (1978)

Paul Mazursky, one of the most acclaimed and prolific filmmakers to come of age in the 1960s, has died from cardiac arrest. He was 84 years old. Mazursky originally worked as an actor in films, appearing in such movies as "The Blackboard Jungle". However, with the revolutionary freedoms that came into movie-making in the mid-1960s, Mazursky turned to screenwriting and directing. His first screenplay was for the Peter Sellers hippie comedy "I Love You, Alice B. Toklas!". He made his directorial debut with "Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice" in 1969. The film starred Natalie Wood and Robert Culp as a hip, privileged couple who contemplate wife swapping with their best friends, played by Elliott Gould and Dyan Cannon, both of whom rose to stardom because of the film. Like most of Mazursky's films, the movie viewed social significant issues- in this case, »

Director Paul Mazursky Dead at 84

2 July 2014 9:52 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

He was a visionary in terms of independent filmmaking with a series of pioneering works beginning  in the late ’60s. Sometimes referred to as the ‘Woody Allen of the West Coast’, Paul Mazursky was nominated for five Oscars, mostly for his writing. Bob & Carol & Ted &  Alice, Harry And Tonto (which won an Oscar for star Art Carny in 1974), Moscow On The Hudson, An Unmarried Woman, Down And Out In Beverly Hills were among his many accomplishments. His last significant work was Enemies A Love Story in 1989, the story of a Holocaust survivor who finds himself involved with three women – his current wife, a passionate married woman, and his long-vanished wife whom he thought was killed during the war. Mazursky has spent the last couple of decades acting in small roles, but there was a time when he was considered one of the most important filmmakers working, and for good reason. »

Unhappy Together: Bertolucci’s Muted Return to the Director’s Seat

Seemingly against the odds, wheelchair bound Bernardo Bertolucci arrives with his first directorial effort, Me and You, in a decade, his last being the controversial 2003 film, The Dreamers. Also of note, it’s the first Italian language film Bertolucci’s made in thirty years, adding additional significance to this late work from the master provocateur. Yet, as arresting as its visuals are, paired with an odd mix of youthful soundtrack selections, the film never elevates beyond a sometimes ungainly and trifling exploration of themes and relationships exhibited more daringly and memorably in other works. Creative child artists recovering from years of drug abuse and the specter of incest amongst families of the privileged class promise a thickening soup, yet never congeal into anything more than a basic broth of domestic bonds.

Variety’s Scott Foundas Remembers Paul Mazursky: A Poetic Farceur of American Lives

1 July 2014 10:34 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Are you happy?” the woman asks her husband midway through Paul Mazursky’s “Blume in Love” (1973), to which he replies, “I’m just not miserable.” It is a flashback to earlier, relatively happier times in the busted-up marriage of the divorce lawyer Blume (George Segal) and his wife, Nina (Susan Anspach). But one can find the same scene or its close equivalent in most of Mazursky’s 15 feature films, which time and again centered on small-time American dreamers striving to feel a little less miserable in their lives.

The time was the early 1970s — that much-mythologized moment in Hollywood cinema — and Mazursky was among the directors whose work most embraced the new personal and sexual freedoms then taking hold in American culture and American movies. Divorce and adultery were laissez-faire subjects in his films when they were still taboo around the water cooler. Four years before “Blume,” his debut feature, »

Paul Mazursky, Director of ‘Unmarried Woman,’ Dies at 84

1 July 2014 11:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Performer-turned-writer/director Paul Mazursky, who was Oscar-nommed five times and helmed hit movies including “Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice” and “An Unmarried Woman,” has died. He was 84. Mazursky died of cardiac arrest Monday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

While his most significant films as a director came several decades ago, he returned to acting on TV in later years, playing Norm on “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and appearing on “The Sopranos” and on ABC drama “Once and Again” as Sela Ward’s father.

Mazursky at his best captured the spirit of the late ’60s and the ’70s, when the American moral climate was turned on its head. His films entertainingly explored such weighty issues as marital fidelity, the merits of psychological therapy and modern divorce: “Bob and Ted,” starring Robert Culp and Natalie Wood as a “liberated” married couple; “Blume in Love,” starring George Segal and Susan Anspach »

Oscar 2015: Craig Zadan and Neil Meron will return as Oscar show producers (photo: Craig Zadan and Neil Meron) Craig Zadan and Neil Meron will be back as producers of the 2015 Oscar ceremony, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences president Cheryl Boone Isaacs announced yesterday, April 21, 2014.

Besides pizza delivery, the Oscar telecast also featured the presence of veterans Kim Novak and Sidney Poitier; musical performances by U2, Pharrell Williams, and Idina Menzel (aka "Adele Nazeem," as per John Travolta); in addition to a tribute to The Wizard of Oz performed by »
