Rumble Fish, Francis Ford Coppola’s Young Adult tone poem, unspools in a black and white never-never land of sullen teens, pool tables and pompadours. It may take a moment for the audience to suss out that we’re not in the Eisenhower era with Chuck Berry, Marilyn Monroe and the Cold War but squarely in Reagan’s domain of MTV, Madonna and the Cold War.

Set in a destitute Oklahoma town with the ghost of The Last Picture Show whistling through its empty streets, Matt Dillon plays Rusty, an inveterate gang-banger growing up in the shadow of his older brother played by Mickey Rourke, a reformed juvenile »

India’s Zee Flies ‘Beyond the Clouds’ With Iran’s Majid Majidi (Exclusive)

30 March 2017 12:35 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jaipur – Sambhar, a village in Rajasthan, located some 200 miles from New Delhi, is adjacent to India’s largest saline lake and produces some 10% of the country’s salt. It has some glamorous antecedents too having hosted prominent Bollywood productions like “Jodhaa Akbar,” “Delhi-6,” “P.K.,” and “Highway.”

For much of March 2017, Sambhar witnessed a film shoot rather different from Bollywood. Iranian auteur Majid Majidi, director of award-winning films such as “Children of Heaven,” “Baran,” and “Muhammad: The Messenger of God,” chose a house in the village to stand in for a residence in Mumbai, where his latest film “Beyond the Clouds” is set.

Majidi had been planning to make an India-set film some eight years ago. “There are many similarities between Iran and India in culture, language and clothes,” says Majidi. “Sometimes we even use the same words and slang as well.”

Netflix to Resurrect One of Cinema’s Lost Treasures: Orson Welles’ ‘The Other Side of the Wind’

15 March 2017 8:57 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Plus: Jordan Peele makes history, a couple new trailers, and perfect shots.~

In 1970, renowned auteur and wine lover Orson Welles began production on a film entitled The Other Side of the Wind about a legendary director who’d been in European exile for a number of years but had at last returned stateside to make his masterpiece, which bears the same name as this film. John Huston was cast as the director alongside such talents as Peter Bogdonovich, Susan Strasberg, Lili Palmer, Cameron Crowe, Dennis Hopper, Natalie Wood, and Edmond O’Brien. It was, naturally, meant to be Welles’ own comeback film, a send up of Hollywood, art, and the myriad struggles to unite the two. Shot mockumentary style over a six-year period, the film became more famous for its struggles, and even though principal photography was completed, financial and legal issues resulted in the negatives being impounded; Welles wouldn’t live to get them back.

Food Network Star Alton Brown Dishes on Oscar DPs

22 February 2017 4:22 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Why care what longtime Food Network personality Alton Brown thinks about the nominees in the Oscar’s cinematography category? Because he knows lenses, film stock, and formats as well as he knows ingredients, recipes, and cooking techniques.

“I started off as a cameraman when I was still in college, and moved into shooting music videos in the ‘80s, then became a full-time cinematographer and a director-cameraman for TV spots, which I did for about 10 years,” Brown says.

Eventually burnt out by the ad business, Brown saw two choices. “I could either move on to New York or Hollywood and concentrate on shooting, or I could go to culinary school and try to make a food show.”

He chose the latter, resulting in the groundbreaking 14-season series “Good Eats,” which holds up so well that repeats continue airing today. Brown directed 200 of its 250 episodes. He calls his latest show, “Iron Chef Gauntlet, »

Witness the Evolution of Cinematography with Compilation of Oscar Winners

6 February 2017 1:47 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

This past weekend, the American Society of Cinematographers awarded Greig Fraser for his contribution to Lion as last year’s greatest accomplishment in the field. Of course, his achievement was just a small sampling of the fantastic work from directors of photography, but it did give us a stronger hint at what may be the winner on Oscar night. Ahead of the ceremony, we have a new video compilation that honors all the past winners in the category at the Academy Awards

Created by Burger Fiction, it spans the stunning silent landmark Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans all the way up to the end of Emmanuel Lubezki‘s three-peat win for The Revenant. Aside from the advancements in color and aspect ration, it’s a thrill to see some of cinema’s most iconic shots side-by-side. However, the best way to experience the evolution of the craft is by »

Walk of Fame Honoree Brett Ratner’s Love of Cinema Is a Driving Force in His Career

19 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Brett Ratner loves cinema. When speaking with the 47-year-old filmmaker, it’s abundantly clear that movies are unspooling through his veins, and if our discussions felt more like two movie buffs just enjoying great conversation, it’s because of his general enthusiasm for the medium.

“It was always my dream to direct movies,” he says, rarely pausing for a breath. “I always knew I’d do it. I had the drive and the desire. I was determined. But I never knew I’d be making movies of this size, stuff like the ‘Rush Hour’ films and ‘X-Men’ and ‘Red Dragon.’ When I was in film school, I knew I wanted to make entertaining movies. But I don’t think I could have prepared for how fast my rise would be. I was 26 when I got my first film.”

But it was before he’d set foot on a movie set »
