Tech Support: Period and fantasy do battle for Best Costume Design

22 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Clothes don't make the man?" That rule certainly doesn't hold true in the movies. Dress can say a lot about characters, their class, their self-image, their self-consciousness, the period and place in which they live, the story they're living and how a director wishes an audience to perceive them. Fortunately, the Academy's Costume Design branch recognizes this, as it consistently proves itself to be one of the most original sects of the organization, not overtly swayed by a film's overall perception. Every year, films that are critically maligned and/or have no other nominations tend to score here and the overall state of the Best Picture race tends to play only a peripheral role. Nevertheless, trends can be noted. Period pieces almost always take a majority of the nominations, frequently all five. Glamor is also awarded frequently. There are also great designers (such as Sandy Powell, Milena Canonero and Colleen Atwood »

Review: Jean-Luc Godard's Dense, Brilliant, And Pretentious 'Goodbye To Language 3D'

29 October 2014 4:04 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This is a reprint of our review from the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. You can't teach an old dog new tricks, they say. Some filmmakers become so set in their ways that others, like Quentin Tarantino or Steven Soderbergh, vow to hang up their viewfinders before they ever reach that point. But over 50 years after his feature-length debut "Breathless" turned the form on its head, and at the grand old age of 83, Jean-Luc Godard has returned to Cannes (not, it should be said, in person) with his first film in Competition in over a decade to prove them wrong — "Goodbye To Language 3D." And prove them wrong he has: Godard's bite-sized latest (running barely 70 minutes long) isn't going to turn around anyone who gave up on the director long ago: it is very much a Jean-Luc Godard joint. But there's also a lot to chew on here, and a sense of »

29 October 2014 3:38 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Listen: 45-Minute Talk With Cliff Martinez, Composer Will Score Cary Fukunaga's 'Beasts Of No Nation'

29 October 2014 1:48 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

By now, thanks to his extensive work on films by Steven Soderbergh, and his imprint on recent cult faves "Drive" and "Spring Breakers," composer Cliff Martinez doesn't need much introduction. In fact, his unique brand of percussive, synth-y compositions make his scores immediately recognizable every time out, and yet, they are distinct, and bring a singular texture and mood to whatever project they're associated with. And once again, he's got an intriguing film on his plate. During an interview with Celluloid Tunes (via Film Music Reporter), Martinez revealed he'll score Cary Fukunaga's "Beasts Of No Nation." Starring Idris Elba and based on the book by Uzodinma Iweala, the story follows Agu, a young boy forced to become a child soldier, with Elba playing The Commander who initiates Agu into his army. It's certainly much different than the genre world Martinez sometimes finds himself in, and we're intrigued to see what his flavor adds. »

Alexandre Desplat Proves a Perennial Fave at Gent’s World Soundtrack Awards

27 October 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the Mc at Saturday night’s 14th annual World Soundtrack Awards — the culmination of Film Fest Gent — announced, “this should be called the Alexandre Desplat Awards,” after the French maestro was named as winner of both composer of the year and creator of the year’s best original film score (“Grand Budapest Hotel”).

Desplat, with his 13 nominations and six wins since 2007, is apparently a clear favorite of the Wsa committee that decides on such affairs, despite facing such stiff competition from Steven Price, who won the Oscar for “Gravity,” and Hans Zimmer (“12 Years a Slave”), who, along with his then-publicist, the late Ronni Chasen, helped bring worldwide recognition to Gent as a showcase for film music.

The composer of the year award recognizes a talent’s body of work for the previous year, and the ever-prolific Desplat was recognized for no less than seven films, including “Budapest,” “Philomena,” “The Monuments Men »

Martin Scorsese: Ranking His Movies From Worst To Best

27 October 2014 6:12 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

Some of the best filmmakers working today are renowned for their passion for cinema as an art form – Paul Thomas Anderson, Steven Soderbergh and Quentin Tarantino are all known for their cinephilia, and their vast knowledge of movies shines through in each of their films.

Martin Scorsese, however, is considered by many to be the ultimate filmmaker’s director. With an illustrious career spanning decades, his filmography is a rich reflection of his encyclopaedic knowledge of the history of cinema, while his activities outside of his own filmmaking demonstrates an enthusiasm for restoring and reviving hidden gems from around the world.

This obsession is perhaps best reflected in his book and documentary series A Personal Journey With Martin Scorsese Through American Movies – a 225 minute foray into the obscure and influential movies which shaped both the medium and his own approach to movies. Its comprehensive nature has perhaps only »

Rome Film Festival: Clive Owen on Why Steven Soderbergh Isn’t Retiring Anytime Soon

18 October 2014 12:09 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Steven Soderbergh took on Cinemax’s The Knick just three weeks after announcing his retirement. To be fair, he planned to retire from “cinema,” and later called it a simple sabbatical, but a grueling 10-episode shoot in 73 days didn’t look anything like taking a break. Soderbergh, who said making movies was no longer fun for him, seems to have recaptured that early joy in TV. The Knick is as close to cinema as anything on TV today. The sprawling period show, which marks Cinemax as a major contender in original programming, is scripted, directed and edited as episodic

The Knick, Ep. 1.10 “Crutchfield”: The Circus Burns Down in Season Finale

18 October 2014 10:26 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Knick, Season 1, Episode 10: “Crutchfield”

Written by Jack Amiel & Michael Begler

Directed by Steven Soderbergh

Airs Fridays at 8Pm Est on Cinemax

The Knick is the rare case of a show that arrived precisely at the perfect time for it. Some shows arrive too far ahead of their time, and are thus canceled prematurely. Some shows arrive on the back of a trend, far too late to really make an impact. But The Knick? It arrived precisely when it should have. The trend of filmmakers making their mark on TV is still in an exciting growth stage, and the medical drama has been in need of someone like Soderbergh to come in and tear up the sutures.

This season finale is uniquely constructed, in that the first half of the episode is quite calm. We’ve become accustomed to finales serving as forest fires, rather than slow burns like this episode is. »

The Past, Present, and Future of Real-Time Films Part Three

17 October 2014 8:01 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Post-1960S, Pre-Digital Age: Real-time One-offs, 1975-1998

British filmmaker John Byrum is responsible for the first (and in some ways only) real-time period film. Inserts (1975), set in the early 1930s, is about a Boy Wonder movie director (called Boy Wonder, played by Richard Dreyfuss fresh from American Graffiti (1973) and Jaws (1975)) now washed up before the age of 30, resigned to making porn because of Hollywood’s conversion to sound. Not only is Inserts scrupulously real-time (with the exception of the opening credits sequence, which offers glimpses of the stag film we’re about to see made) and period, but it’s rather long for such a film, just shy of two hours. To tell the entire story would be spoiling the fun, but the Boy Wonder deals with recalcitrant actresses, the problem of his own potency, career problems, death, sex, after-death and after-sex…and in the end, as »

The Knick Season 1 Finale Recap: Time to Start Getting Better

17 October 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Endings are difficult. For its final first-season episode, “Crutchfield” (written by Jack Amiel and Michael Begler; directed, edited and photographed by Steven Soderbergh), Cinemax’s period hospital drama The Knick attempts to tie off a number of lingering narrative threads, and this it does — though in ways that feel, in toto, extremely conventional. This has been a problem that I’ve remarked on through the run of the series: The scripts rarely live up to Soderbergh’s extraordinary craft. His constant inventiveness (finding new ways of seeing in almost every scene) only underscores the many flaws of the storytelling.Consider that the emotional high point of “Crutchfield” comes early when Cornelia Robertson — having paid for a dead-of-night procedure to terminate her and Dr. Algernon Edwards’s unborn child — stumbles into Tom Cleary and Sister Harriet’s underground abortion operation. Cleary is tickled by this turn of events, but it’s »

Clive Owen on The Knick Finale, Cocaine, and the Plan for Season 2

17 October 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Spoilers ahead for the season-one finale of The Knick.As The Knick kicked off this past summer, Dr. John Thackery (Clive Owen) reminded those around him that “We live in a time of endless possibility.” Unfortunately for this brilliantly unhinged surgeon, that potential boundlessness got him sentenced to a hospital bed on this weekend's season finale. Turns out shooting liquid cocaine into your veins before surgery is bad for both you and the health of your patient! Thankfully, Thack will get himself cured with a new drug called, uh … heroin, which was considered safe at the time. “It’s from the Bayer Aspirin Company,” says the prescribing doctor. A fitting way to end the poetically harrowing first season of Steven Soderbergh’s 1900s medical drama — with its antihero hitting rock-bottom. What will Soderbergh and the rest of The Knick team have in store for us in season two? Vulture spoke »
