Learning From The Masters Of Cinema: Stanley Donen's Two For The Road

26 January 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Smart, stylish, insightful and brimming with technical inventiveness, Stanley Donen's Two For The Road is a wonderful examination of the modern marriage whose influence can still be felt in Hollywood cinema today, nearly 50 years after it was originally released.Inspired in part by his own marriage, screenwriter Frederic Raphael (Darling, Eyes Wide Shut) penned Two For The Road at the specific request of director Stanley Donen (Singing In The Rain, Charade), after seeing his earlier efforts in 1964's Nothing But The Best. According to Raphael, he deliberately wrote the script in random order, accentuating its episodic structure, as it revisits the various trips from London to the South of France by the same British couple.Mark Wallace (Albert Finney), a successful architect, and his wife Joanna...

Blu-ray Review: 'Two for the Road'

24 January 2015 7:27 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ Stanley Donen could see the writing on the wall. The counter-culture was dawning and it was only a matter of time before the spirit of the Beats and the sexual force of Elvis reached the American cinema. The country was changing around him and he offered an unconscious reaction in the form of a classical Hollywood musical. Funny Face (1957) took Old Hollywood to the counterculture and tore a strip off it. It was showbiz as artistic imperialism, with Donen turning a song and dance number into a form of cultural battering ram, taking on the beatniks, the bohemians and the dropouts. It was a last hurrah for the Hollywood musical, but Donen offered neither a limp celebration nor mournful epitaph.

Denis Cote's Spare and Elegant Joy of Man's Desiring Is an Illuminating Labor Portrait

13 January 2015 9:00 PM, PST | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Cinema's fascination with labor can be traced to the art form's very beginning: The Lumière brothers' first film, Workers Leaving the Lumière Factory (1895), shows men and women, lunch pails in hand, streaming out of a warehouse. The imprint of this 45-second-long actualité is evident in myriad works, whether fact or fiction, that focus on the daily grind: from Charlie Chaplin's slapstick Modern Times (1936) to George Abbott and Stanley Donen's 1957 movie musical The Pajama Game (which Jean-Luc Godard, whose films from the 1960s often riffed on Marx's theories of alienated labor, hailed as "the first left-wing operetta") to Michael Glawogger's Workingman's Death (2005), a globe-spanning documentary on some of the worst jobs »

Steve Carell, Chris Rock, Rob Marshall Honored at Variety Brunch

4 January 2015 4:23 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Variety feted Steve Carell, Chris Rock and Rob Marshall along with its 2015 class of 10 Directors to Watch at a brunch Sunday at the Palm Springs Film Festival.

Coming the day after the desert festival’s own gala, the event was dubbed “hangover 5″ by Variety executive editor Steven Gaydos, who presided at the Parker Palm Springs.

Julianne Moore, who presented Carell with the Variety Creative Impact in Acting Award, said she had been “creatively impacted” by her frequent screen husband. “I’ve been talking to Steve, I’ve been acting with Steve and I’ve been stealing from Steve,” she said. “That’s what actors do.”

“It’s not just the nose,” she said, referring to how he inhabits his characters including in his latest role in “Foxcatcher,” where he sports a prosthetic nose. “Steve never telegraphs or showboats. He puts his soul and that’s not easy to steal.”

Carell, »
