Werner Herzog: his 2 pieces of practical advice for students

20 February 2017 2:29 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Feb 21, 2017

Werner Herzog encourages film students to go rogue. But he advises them to learn two practical skills. Lock picking is one of them...

The Big Issue continues to boast some cracking film interviews, and I’ve just caught up with last week’s piece the magazine did with Werner Herzog.

See related  Alien: Covenant - its new title's meaning & other questions

Herzog, the best Bond villain we never had, has a new film coming to cinemas this year, Salt And Fire, and in the interview he talks about the advice he gives young people looking to break into filmmaking. It’s a class A Herzog response.

“I try to give a systematic answer”, he said. “I run my Rogue Film School. It’s the antithesis of what you see happening worldwide in film schools. It’s a guerrilla-style, a way of life rather than a list of practical advice. »

Watch an Hour-Long Documentary Roundtable with Werner Herzog, Kirsten Johnson, Raoul Peck & More

20 February 2017 11:31 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Find a documentarian who wants to talk about their film, and you’ll get a better interview from them than just about anybody. Their work is often a matter of listening and pruning the finer points from mounds and mounds of material, which means they can pinpoint the hows and whys of their work as a second nature. Fortunate, then, that they’ve been given a spotlight courtesy of the Hollywood Reporter‘s annual awards-season roundtable, which one ought to enjoy despite the fact that only two participants (I Am Not Your Negro‘s Raoul Peck and O.J.: Made in America‘s Ezra Edelman) earned an Academy Award nomination.

So it is when they’re joined by Werner Herzog (there for Into the Inferno and Lo and Behold), Roger Ross Williams (Life, Animated), Josh Kriegman (Weiner), and Kirsten Johnson (Cameraperson), all of whom share the struggles, constraints, and joys of their particular work, »

If one is looking to experience a dose of astonishing beauty, now in theaters in the Oscar-nominated animation The Red Turtle. A co-production with Studio Ghibli, Michaël Dudok de Wit’s first feature-length film is a humble, patient drama with an emotionally rich finale. To celebrate its theatrical release here in the U.S., we’re highlighting the director’s all-time favorite films, which he submitted to BFI‘s latest Sight & Sound poll. Featuring classics from Kubrick, Cimino, Kurosawa, and more, on the animation side, he makes sure to recognize a Miyazaki masterwork, along with a seminal Disney film.

“Just before the team arrived, Studio Ghibli called me and said, ‘We’ve been thinking about the list of words that are supposed to be spoken in the film and we think you should drop the dialogue entirely,'” the director told us, speaking about the production process of his film. »

They added: “We also pay homage to your leadership and your powerful capacity to pull in Hollywood stars as well as unknown people and amateurs, and to the way you impose your distinctive tone and vision, flouting moral conventions and political correctness.”

The 10 Most Exciting Films In The 2017 Berlin Lineup

1 February 2017 9:08 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With the best will in the world, we can’t pretend that the 2017 Berlin Film Festival lineup has that many major buzz titles in comparison to previous years. But it pays to remember that the Berlinale is a peculiar festival in that even when it has a high-profile, established-auteur-laden programme, it’s inevitably not those movies that really punch hardest in the end (we’re looking at you, Terrence Malick, Werner Herzog, Wim Wenders and more, all of whom debuted disappointing work at the festival in recent years).

Sundance Film Review: Cate Blanchett in ‘Manifesto’

26 January 2017 2:02 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In 2008, actress Cate Blanchett earned an Oscar nomination for playing folk singer Bob Dylan in “I’m Not There.” As undeniably bold as that casting decision was at the time, it seems positively primitive compared to the one Berlin-based film and video artist Julian Rosefeldt dreams up for “Manifesto,” his feature-length version of a multi-screen installation (recently on exhibit at New York’s Armory) in which Blanchett serves as mouthpiece for 60 creative revolutionaries who staked their claim and stood their ground with regard to what they felt art should be.

Blanchett embodies 13 distinct yet generic characters for the project, playfully reciting the text in a variety of unexpected contexts — the Dada Manifesto becomes a funeral oration, while Claes Oldenburg, “I Am for an Art…” serves as a pre-dinner prayer — in such a way that brings fresh possibility to ideas were always intended to rock the world. How appropriate then that »

Oscar Odds Stacked Against Documentary Directors

6 January 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In the nearly 75 years since the Oscars began awarding a documentary feature, no non-fiction filmmaker has ever been nominated for director, despite being eligible for the prize.

The most obvious reason is that “directing” seems antithetical to the spirit of nonfiction, which is about revealing unsullied truths about the world in which we live. Documentary directors have been generally regarded as observers or journalists, rather than as creative artists, and the Oscar process has, until recently, rewarded more conservative approaches to the form.

Such prominent documentary figures as Errol Morris and Werner Herzog worked for decades before the Academy honored them. Morris’ “The Fog of War” won the 2004 Oscar and Herzog’s “Encounters at the End of the World” was nominated in 2009. But even those films, as quirky and iconoclastic as they are, operated in the familiar spheres of journalistic interrogation and fact-filled nature docs. It’s always been expected »
