1984: Paris, Texas

23 August 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

As part of our celebration of the year of the month, 1984, Lynn Lee revisits the winner of that year's Palme d'Or, Wim Wenders' Paris Texas.

While it may not quite have the status of an iconic movie, there’s much about Paris, Texas that feels iconic.  A hybrid of those two most iconically American genres, the Western and the road trip—directed, natch, by a German and starring two European actresses—it bears the distinctive features of both.  The long stretches of silence, only occasionally broken by snatches of spare Sam Shepard-scripted dialogue or, as often as not, monologue.  Ry Cooder’s haunting slide-guitar score, which seems to meld with the harsh, lonely, yet strangely sublime landscapes of Texas deserts, highways, and roadside motels.  The lighting, especially at dusk.  The weathered countenance of Harry Dean Stanton—how does it manage to be at once so stoic and so expressive? »

John Cho, Parker Posey Starring in Drama ‘Columbus’

19 August 2016 10:12 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

John ChoParker Posey, Haley Lu Richardson, Michelle Forbes, and Rory Culkin are starring the Indiana-set drama “Columbus.”

“Columbus” marks the feature directorial debut of Kogonada, who has been noted for his visual work and film criticism  commissioned by the Criterion Collection and Sight & Sound.

The movie is being produced by Superlative Films and Depth of Field in association with Nonetheless Productions. Chris Weitz, Andrew Miano, Danielle Renfrew Behrens, Aaron Boyd, Ki Jin Kim, and Giulia Caruso serve as producers. Superlative Films is financing the pic.

The film is currently shooting in Columbus, Ind., which the director said inspired him due to its modern architecture.

“After visiting the town, I felt an immediate sense for a film that would take place there, which would implicitly explore the promise of modernism (an ongoing quest for me),” he said. “The story revolves around a man and young woman from opposite sides of the world, »

Touché Amoré’s Video for ‘Palm Dreams’ Pays Tribute to David Lynch’s ‘Mulholland Drive’ — Watch

27 July 2016 4:47 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The longer David Lynch’s absence from feature filmmaking continues, the greater his legacy becomes. That, at least, is one takeaway from Touché Amoré’s video for “Palm Dreams,” which shows clear signs of having been influenced by Lynch’s “Mulholland Drive” — the consensus choice of a great many critics and cinephiles for the best film of the 2000s. Watch the video below.

The song itself hardly strikes the same mood as Angelo Badalamenti’s synth-laden score for the film — or, for that matter, even Linda Scott’s “I’ve Told Every Little Star” – but the actual video, with its palm trees and shots of a confused-looking woman roaming the streets of Los Angeles in a blonde wig, are can’t-miss callbacks to Lynch.

Alien: how its physical acting makes a horror classic

23 May 2016 3:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Even shorn of its sound, Alien remains a masterpiece of tension thanks to the power of its physical performances, Ryan writes...

This article contains spoilers for Alien.

When a film works - really, really works - its combination of acting, cinematography, music, sound design, lighting and editing come together so seamlessly that it can become difficult to pin down exactly why it’s so effective. Take Alien for example: beautifully shot by Ridley Scott and cinematographer Derek Vanlint, cut with razor-sharp perfection to Jerry Goldsmith’s piping eerie score, it’s a masterpiece of genre filmmaking.

In the years since Alien’s release in 1979, various aspects of it have been singled out for praise: Hr Giger was rightly handed an Oscar for his part in the seductively hideous xenomorph in its various stages. The film’s story and nightmare imagery is still picked over for its Freudian and feminist subtexts. »

Exclusive: 'Dillinger' Robs A Bank In Clip From Arrow Video's Restored John Milius Classic

26 April 2016 8:11 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A few years back, we took a look at the essential films of John Milius, and among them was his take on the legendary gangster John Dillinger. We called 1973's "Dillinger" a movie that displays "brutal, muscular filmmaking" and one that's "loaded with surprisingly visceral action." And Arrow Video has now given the picture a 2K restoration on DVD and Blu-ray, and today we have an exclusive clip from the release. Warren Oates plays the title role in "Dillinger," with the movie tracking the rise and fall of Public Enemy Number One as he's pursued by Melvin Purvis and the FBI's G-men. Rounding out the cast of the distinctive gangster flick is Harry Dean Stanton, Richard Dreyfuss and Michelle Phillips of The Mamas and the Papas, with Arrow Video loading their release with a bounty of extras including new interviews and an audio commentary. "Dillinger" is in stores today. Get »
