New Arrow Book: The Hitcher (Book)
Pre-order now: http://bit.ly/2BqKmWx
Release date: 29th December
Robert Harmon’s 1986 film The Hitcher is a complex beast: reviled at the time of its release, it has been adored in the long term as one of the most intoxicating, unrelenting highway cult films ever made. Starring Rutger Hauer in the title role whose alluring villainy
Vying for their first nods are Danish Dan Laustsen for Guillermo del Toro’s lush ’60s romantic fantasy-thriller, “The Shape of Water,” Swiss Hoyt Van Hoytema (BAFTA-nominated for “Interstellar” and “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”) for his 65 mm photography on Christopher Nolan’s World War II
epic “Dunkirk,” and Rachel Morrison, who could become the first woman to break into the ranks of nominated directors of photography for Dee Rees’ southern epic “Mudbound.”

Festival director Kent Jones hosted the two at the Walter Reade Theater on October 11 for an all-encompassing talk of their cinematic philosophies and the cinematographers’ 40-year friendship.
Storaro and Lachman showed clips from films that inspire them and clips of their own work. The clips were a launching pad to discuss the difficult-to-pin cinematic language of photographic storytelling. We’ve included key quotes from their talk and the complete video of masterclass below.

Vittorio has done more in the last 50 years for the recognition and esteem of cinematography than anybody.
“Period offers a lot of provocative possibilities,” Allen says of his 1950s-set ode to the Coney Island of his youth. “I wanted to do a poetic rendition. That immediately liberates you from having to be realistic all the time.”
Indeed, “Wonder Wheel” — to be released by Amazon on Dec. 1 and starring Kate Winslet as a former actress now working as a clam house waitress longing for what might have been — is a vibrant, lushly lit exercise in expressionism. And it was Vittorio Storaro, the three-time Oscar-winning cinematographer who first collaborated with Allen on “Café Society,” who really pushed the director outside his comfort zone.
“In any movie
It’s for this reason that Kickstarter has decided to open the doors to its state-of-the-art 50-person theater inside the company’s Brooklyn Headquarters to filmmakers looking for a place to screen its works-in-progress. Starting today, filmmakers who used the Kickstarter crowdfunding platform are eligible to apply for what they are calling “Rough Cut,” a program that allows the company’s theater to be booked at no charge.
The program unofficially started months ago, when the crowdfunding platform – which has been used by 106 Sundance Festival films over the last six years – started granting theater access to their alumni with films nearing completion and
This year, two of the greatest living cinematographers, Vittorio Storaro and Ed Lachman, had films at the fest – “Wonder Wheel” and “Wonderstruck” – and for 90-minutes shared the stage with festival director Kent Jones to discuss the craft to which they’ve dedicated their lives. IndieWire has the exclusive video of the entire “Master Class” below.
Lachman has shot a number of the seminal American films of the last the 30 years, including Sofia Coppola’s “Virgin Suicides” and Steven Soderbergh’s “The Limey,” but it’s been his 15-year collaboration with director Todd Haynes (“Carol”) that has defined his career. Storaro is best know to American audiences for having shot

Timberlake begins the film with narration about his time at Nyu and burgeoning writing career. He does his best Allen impression, over-enunciating every word, but the character isn’t your typical, neurotic Allen surrogate. Allen instead writes the neurosis into Ginny, Kate Winslet’s character, a desperate housewife who is cheating on her husband, Humpty (Jim Belushi), with Mickey. Lacking the neurotic charm that made Jesse Eisenberg’s Cafe Society turn so endearing, Timberlake struggles with delivery here,

“They can talk about 14-stop exposure range, but the color separation is different,”said Lachman. “The chemistry of R, G, B the three [color] layers — to me, it’s like an etching in the chemical process of the development. For me, there are certain films that should be photographed photographically, chemically… I can tell there’s a difference in the feeling of the film.”
The debate was part of a 90-minute conversation at the New York Film Festival October 11, moderated by festival director Kent Jones. Storaro talked about his positive transition to digital cinematography, which came largely through his collaboration with Woody Allen who directed the festival’s closing-night film,
As Ginny, a failed actress-turned-clam-bar-waitress yearning for something more, Winslet delivers her most powerful, emotionally resonant performance in more than a decade. Though inevitable comparisons to Cate Blanchett’s fiery turn in Allen’s “Blue Jasmine” hold water, Winslet delivers a softer, melancholic woman, with cinematographer Vittorio Storaro’s lush, expressionistic camerawork complimenting her poetic anguish. She transforms a bumbling alcoholic caricature who exudes bleak jokes about missed opportunities, injecting her with majestic sadness.
The rest is nothing we haven’t seen before, but it’s nevertheless
An Evening with Ava DuVernay and... in the Special Event programme that was to take place on October 6 at 6:00pm at Alice Tully Hall has been cancelled "due to scheduling conflicts". The sneak preview screening of Paul Schrader's First Reformed has been slotted in for that time. Ava DuVernay's Oscar-nominated and BAFTA winning documentary 13th was the Opening Night Gala selection for last year's New York Film Festival.
Cinematographers Edward Lachman (Todd Haynes' Wonderstruck) and Vittorio Storaro (Bernardo Bertolucci, Carlos Saura, and Francis Ford Coppola) will participate in a Master Class conversation with New York Film Festival Director Kent Jones on Wednesday, October 11 at 6:15pm - Walter Reade Theater.
A Conversation with Kate Winslet, who stars in Woody Allen's Wonder Wheel (Closing Night selection of the festival) will go on as.

Wonder Wheel tells the story of four characters whose lives intertwine amid the hustle and bustle of the Coney Island amusement park in the 1950s: Ginny (Kate Winslet), an emotionally volatile former actress now working as a waitress in a clam house; Humpty (Jim Belushi), Ginny’s rough-hewn carousel operator husband; Mickey (Justin Timberlake), a handsome young lifeguard who dreams of becoming a playwright; and Carolina (Juno Temple), Humpty’s long-estranged daughter, who is now hiding out from gangsters at her father’s apartment.
