Interview: Film Icon Warren Beatty Knows ‘Rules Don’t Apply’

21 November 2016 9:06 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – When encountering film producer, director, writer and “movie star” Warren Beatty, I entered into an interview that would be truly one of a kind. The spontaneous Mr. Beatty works a talk in a give-and-take Socratic method, searching for the truth underneath the rhetoric, as he did with his new film “Rules Don’t Apply.”

The film is a quasi-biographical profile of the legendary American billionaire Howard Hughes, but don’t mention that to writer/director Beatty (who also portrays Hughes). What he wanted to explore was the truth around Hughes, in the personification of a fictional couple (Alden Ehrenreich and Lily Collins) working for the billionaire. Set in 1958 Hollywood – the same year a young Warren Beatty arrived there – the film highlights the clash between the sexual looseness that existed in the movie business, and the potential seekers that “got off the bus” in tinsel town, still mired in their 1950s puritanism. »

Review: “Cat People” (1942; Directed by Jacques Tourneur) (The Criterion Collection)

12 October 2016 3:48 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

“Claws, Lust, And Lewton”

By Raymond Benson

Sometimes brilliance in Hollywood comes in very modest packages. Who would have thought that a string of horror films made on shoestring budgets, with no star power, and little attention from the studio, would become classics in style and cinematic poetry?

That’s what happened when, in 1942, producer Val Lewton was put in charge of a division at Rko Radio Pictures with the directive to make a series of ridiculously inexpensive movies intended to be competition for Universal’s successful franchise of monster flicks. Lewton—a former novelist and poet—had previously worked for MGM and, in particular, David O. Selznick, before being hired by Rko. He brought this experience along with his literary background to the table when he was told he could do anything he wanted as long as the budget for each film did not exceed $150,000.

Thus, there wasn’t »

Fright At Home – The Best of September!! The Shallows, The Neon Demon, Salem’S Lot and More

27 September 2016 2:50 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Typically what we do with our ongoing Fright At Home column, is showcase the top releases of whatever respective week that the column falls on. This time though, I thought it would be fun to spread the coverage to highlight some of our favorite releases to have been put out during the month of September, opening the coverage up to put the spotlight not only Every DVD and/or Bluray, but the ones that caught our eyes. Some of the year’s best genre films have hit home video this month, so it would be silly to leave some of them out just because they came out last week, so they’ve been included, with everything from this week’s releases of The Shallows and The Neon Demon to the month’s earlier releases like The Conjuring 2 and a trio of Stephen King adaptions.

Cat People

This kitty needs no introduction: Simone Simon is the purring-sweet immigrant with a dark atavistic secret. It's Val Lewton's debut smash hit. The real hero is director Jacques Tourneur, who conveys a feeling of real life being lived that won over audiences of 1942 and drew them into his web of fantasy.

Val Lewton never had to be 'discovered,' actually. Life magazine awarded him his own photo layout and the critics praised him as the maker of a new brand of psychologically based horror films. »

Cheryl Boone Isaacs re-elected Academy president

2 August 2016 8:27 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The board of the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences on Tuesday night voted its president to a fourth term heading into what could become an impassioned season of Oscar campaigning fuelled by the diversity agenda.

Boone Isaacs has placed herself front and centre of the gender and race equality cause that is likely to dominate the coming months.

Back in January she declared herself “heartbroken and frustrated” as the #OscarsSoWhite furore erupted when Academy members did not nominate a single person of colour in the Oscar acting categories, contrary to how some commentators believed they should have voted.

Days later Boone Isaacs ushered in the first of several governance changes designed to better reflect race and gender equality. 

The Academy board also elected on Tuesday night Jeffrey Kurland as first vice-president (chair, awards and events committee), John Bailey as vice-president (chair, preservation and history committee) and Kathleen Kennedy as vice-president (chair, museum committee »

Kieslowski, ‘Cat People,’ and the Coen Brothers Lead The Criterion Collection’s September Line-Up

16 June 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

September tends to be the time of year that movie studios start busting out the big guns, and 2016 finds the Criterion Collection following suit, as the boutique home video label will be releasing one of the most significant cinematic landmarks on which they’ve yet to put their stamp.

Krzysztof Kieślowski’s mammoth “Dekalog” makes the company’s September lineup something of a bumper crop in and of itself, but — lucky for us — it’ll be accompanied by an essential Kenji Mizoguchi classic, two ample doses of Jacqueline Susann-inspired campiness, some old school Coen brothers and much more. Check out the full release slate below, listed in rough order of our excitement for each title.

1.) “Dekalog” (dir. Krzysztof Kieślowski, 1988), Spine #837

This would be at the very top of the list regardless of what else Criterion is releasing in September. One of the greatest achievements in all of film (though »
