The Manchurian Candidate and Jonathan Demme's filmmaking style

17 February 2017 4:18 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Feb 20, 2017

Thriller remake The Manchurian Candidate is a great showcase for director Jonathan Demme's use of the camera to evoke fear and empathy...

Iraq War veteran Ben Marco wakes up on a train with a jolt. For a second, he sees an apparition from the past sitting directly opposite him. Marco blinks, and the figure vanishes.

Jonathan Demme’s remake of The Manchurian Candidate is full of small yet jarring sequences like this: moments which take place in a familiar setting, but with something strange or somehow out of place thrown in. Not long after Marco wakes up on the train, he strikes up a begrudging conversation with a young woman, Rose (Kimberly Elise), who says she's seen him around. Rose appears to have taken »

Luke Davies, Oscar nominated screenwriter for Lion with Anne-Katrin Titze Photo: Susan Engel

Meeting up with novelist, essayist, film critic, and very famous poet, Luke Davies, to discuss his latest screenplay, based on Saroo Brierley's memoir A Long Way Home for Lion, directed by Garth Davis, starring Nicole Kidman, Dev Patel, Rooney Mara, David Wenham and Sunny Pawar, we talked about the Proust moment, Hans Christian Andersen's Little Match Girl, Anton Corbijn, John Frankenheimer's The Train, Felix Van Groeningen's Beautiful Boy starring Steve Carell, Gianfranco Rosi's Boatman, Australian adoption laws, butterflies, and visual cues.

In Lion, memories are the only tools available to the hero for regaining a sense of origin. Luke Davies attaches us firmly to little five-year-old Saroo (Sunny Pawar) who gets lost on a dangerous, life-altering adventure.

Saroo (Sunny Pawar): "He describes this hedge that was filled with butterflies."

Feature: The Essential Must-See U.S. Tough Guy Cinema

30 January 2017 3:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

American cinema in the Seventies through to the early Nighties was populated with the kind of leading characters you don’t see enough of any more – no nonsense, amoral tough guys, often on the wrong side of the law, rugged complexions lines with life, who start off mean and don’t get any nicer by the closing credits.

Director Sam Peckinpah’s brilliantly brutal and bloody Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia (1974) features a prime example of this. Bennie, played by Warren Oates (pictured above), is a down on his luck bartender whose ears prick up when $1 million dollars is offered for the titular, potentially suicidal deed – but as Bennie says, ‘nobody loses all the time’. It’s possibly Oates’s finest performance as the tequila-soaked bounty hunter who, the more outgunned he is, the more savage his becomes. It’s also one of Peckinpah’s greatest films, and nicely encapsulates the violent, »

Mick Jackson interview: Denial, The Bodyguard, Donald Trump

Simon Brew Jan 27, 2017

Director Mick Jackson on Denial, Donald Trump, directing films, and how he followed The Bodyguard...

Mick Jackson has lived through several chapters of his directorial career. His background was television, in particular the stunning Threads, and his classy adaptation of Chris MullinsA Very British Coup. Then he went to Hollywood, directing the likes of L.A. Story, The Bodyguard and Volcano.

He’s been away from cinema for a while, courtesy of some intriguing television projects. But he returns to the big screen this weekend with Denial, a classy courtroom drama that brings the story of Holocaust denier David Irving’s infamous libel action to the cinema. We snagged a chat with him ahead of its release, with the promise of further conversation about his 90s output at a later date too.

Can you talk us through this particular film, and why you wanted to bring it to the big screen? »

The Train

8 January 2017 10:00 PM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

John Frankenheimer’s 1965 World War II film is a admirable attempt to fuse the action genre with art-house drama ala The Wages of Fear. Thanks to Frankenheimer’s clean craftsmanship and star Burt Lancaster’s ambivalent performance – part rough and tumble leading man, part existential anti-hero – the movie succeeds on most counts. Burt is a resistance leader trying to retrieve a shipment of precious art from a da Vinci-loving Nazi played by Paul Scofield while New Wave icon Jeanne Moreau is on hand to abet Lancaster’s quest.
