9 May 2016 8:32 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Mubi is showing Sidney Lumet's Fail-Safe (1964) May 7 - June 6 and Stanley Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964) May 8 - June 7, 2016 in the UK.“Yes, it’s a hard day. Goodbye, my friend.”— General Koniev, Fail-Safe“Jack, this is Helen.”— Helen Grady, Fail-SafeTiming was everything during the Cold War. A matter of life and death, democracy or communism, us versus them. And, for true megalomaniacs, my motion picture against your motion picture. In January 1963, Stanley Kubrick filed a lawsuit to halt the production of Fail-Safe, an upcoming adaptation of the recently published novel by Eugene Burdick and Harvey Wheeler. A political thriller about nuclear war, it was being directed by Sidney Lumet and starred Henry Fonda.

[HotDocs Review] Hotel Dallas

30 April 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Despite the name Hotel Dallas and general premise surrounding a replica of Southfork Ranch (where both the old and new Dallas series were filmed) built in Romania by an aspiring capitalist, husband and wife directing duo Sherng-Lee Huang and Livia Ungur‘s film is really about a country crippled under its past that’s still unsure of its future. It’s about art and its ability to speak to people’s hearts and souls whether seeking to do so or not. It’s also about a young girl who grew to embrace a vocation that one day allowed her to work alongside her childhood celebrity crush: Patrick Duffy. Part documentary, soap opera-y restaging of history, memory curio, and love letter to home, this art piece is as uniquely informative as imaginatively wild.

Do not expect convention or concrete answers beyond philosophical dreamscapes of poetic words trying their best to encapsulate »

On this day in pop culture history: ‘Dallas’ left us with a killer cliffhanger

21 March 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It was 36 years ago today that the world was left with what still stands as one of TV’s greatest cliffhangers: In the March 21, 1980 episode of primetime soap Dallas, J.R. Ewing is shot twice by an unseen assailant. Viewers were left frustratedly wondering who shot the conniving oil tycoon and whether he would survive. The whodunnit mystery had everyone guessing for a while: J.R. had a host of enemies, so there were lots of suspects. CBS created a marketing campaign around the phrase “Who shot J.R.?” T-shirts and bumper stickers printed with the phrase and “I Shot J.R.” became a common sight over the summer. During the 1980 presidential election, Republican campaigners made buttons that read “A Democrat shot J.R.,” while Jimmy Carter told people at a fundraiser in Texas, “I came to Dallas to find out confidentially who shot J.R. If any of you could let me know that, »

Berlin: ‘Hotel Dallas’ Enlisted Duffy for Surreal Twist

17 February 2016 1:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The impact of the long-running TV series “Dallas” on Eastern Europe, already the subject of books and academic studies, is now the focus of a docu-fiction work, “Hotel Dallas,” made its world premiere in the Berlinale’s Panorama Documentary section Feb. 15. Film screens today and Saturday.

Written, produced and directed by New York City-based wife and husband artist duo Livia Ungur and Sherng-Lee Huang, the film, in which former “Dallas” star Patrick Duffy makes an appearance, is both a nostalgic look at the primetime soap as well as an indictment of the corruption that has plagued Romania since the end of communist rule.

During the 1980s, “Dallas” was the only U.S. series on Romanian television. Some have speculated that the regime of President Nicolae Ceausescu allowed “Dallas” on TV in order to show the greed and corruption of American capitalism. Ungur, who grew up in Romania and immigrated to the U. »
