Cinematographers and additional members of the Hollywood community gathered Saturday to remember the life of legendary director of photography Gordon Willis, whose credits include Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather trilogy and Woody Allen’s Annie Hall. Willis died May 18 in North Falmouth, Mass., due to complications from cancer. He was 82. Held at the American Society of Cinematographers Clubhouse in Hollywood, the memorial was attended by leading cinematographers including John Bailey, Caleb Deschanel and Haskell Wexler, as well as guests such as director Steven Soderbergh. “We all know about Gordon’s work, and you really can't have a serious conversation about cinematography without mentioning his name," said Asc president Richard Crudo.

Oscars and Academy Museum On Track, Says President Cheryl Boone Isaacs

6 August 2014 1:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cheryl Boone Isaacs on Wednesday said her proudest accomplishment last year was the Oscarcast, while goals for next year include “extending our global footprint.” And, yes, she confirmed, the Academy Museum is still on track for a 2017 opening.

As she begins her second one-year term as president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, Boone Isaacs said the success of the March 2 Oscar show was a good sign for next year’s event.

“As you know, it’s a big event,” she deadpanned. “It really is a world event, and it highlights the entire year in the motion picture business. Working with Craig and Neil (Zadan and Meron, who will produce the Feb. 22 event for the third consecutive year) was — excuse the expression — a boon for me. Once you’ve gone through it, you’re even more prepared for the next time, which is why I wanted to have them on board next year. »

Review: Lawrence Kasdan's "The Big Chill" (1983) Starring William Hurt And Glenn Close; Criterion Dual Disc Edition

24 July 2014 3:31 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

The Ultimate Slumber Party

By Raymond Benson

There are certain films that capture the zeitgeist of an era, and The Big Chill is definitely one of them. If a movie like, say, Annie Hall, hits the nail on the head of urban relationships in the late 70s, then Chill embraces the Baby Boomers’ angst of adulthood in the early 80s—a time when the partying and discoing Carter years were undoubtedly over and we, in the USA, were solidly entrenched in Reagan’s world of hippies-turned-yuppies. The Big Chill is a love letter to the Baby Boomers, as it explores themes of regret over wasted opportunities, friendship and camaraderie, nostalgia, and the eternal question of what-happens-next.

Director and co-writer Kasdan, in a recent video interview (included as an extra on the disk), states that one of his influences for the picture was Jean Renoir’s 1939 classic, The Rules of the Game, »

Blu-ray, DVD Release: The Innocents (1961)

23 June 2014 5:43 AM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: Sept. 23, 2014

Price: DVD $29.95, Blu-ray $39.95

Studio: Criterion

Deborah Kerr gets haunted in The Innocents.

The genuinely frightening, exquisitely made 1961 supernatural Gothic horror film The Innocents stars Deborah Kerr (Black Narcissus) as an emotionally fragile governess who comes to suspect that there is something very, very wrong with her precocious new charges.

A psycho-sexually intensified adaptation of Henry James’s classic The Turn of the Screw, co-written by Truman Capote (Breakfast at Tiffany’s) and directed by Jack Clayton (Room at the Top), The Innocents is a triumph of narrative economy and technical expressiveness, from its chilling sound design to the stygian depths of its widescreen cinematography by Freddie Francis (The Elephant Man).

Criterion’s Blu-ray and two-disc DVD editions contain the following features:

• New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray

• Audio commentary featuring cultural historian Christopher Frayling

• New interview with cinematographer John Bailey »

Blu-ray, DVD Release: The Big Chill

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: July 29, 2014

Price: Blu-ray/DVD Combo $39.95

Studio: Criterion

A group of reunited college friends hear it through the grapevine in The Big Chill.

The 1983 comedy-drama The Big Chill focuses on a group of thirty-somethings who reunite for the funeral of one of their friends and end up spending a weekend together, reminiscing about their shared pasts as children of the sixties and confronting the uncertainty of their lives as adults of the eighties.

Poignant and warmly humorous in equal measure, this baby boomer milestone made a star of writer-director Lawrence Kasdan (Body Heat) and is perhaps the decade’s defining ensemble film, featuring memorable performances by Tom Berenger (Inception), Glenn Close (Fatal Attraction), Jeff Goldblum (Morning Glory), William Hurt (Broadcast News), Kevin Kline (Queen to Play), Mary Kay Place (Being John Malkovich), Meg Tilly (Agnes of God), and JoBeth Williams (Timer).

Film Review: ‘Transcendence’

15 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Transcendence” is a most curious name for a movie that never shakes free from those hoary old cliches about the evils of technology and the danger by which man plays at becoming a god. The man in question here is Johnny Depp, whose listless lead performance as a brilliant scientist in the field of artificial intelligence does little to aid this overplotted, dramatically undernourished debut feature from longtime Christopher Nolan d.p. Wally Pfister. Arriving at a crowded spring box office, the pic will test Depp’s drawing power outside of the Disney franchise factory, before weak word of mouth and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” send it packing.

One of the manifold pleasures of Spike Jonze’s “Her” was how elegantly it shrugged off decades of speculative fiction in which technological progress correlated to a loss of human individualism. In its place was the delightful suggestion that, rather than battling us for domination, »

Watch: 1-Hour Interview 'My Name is John Ford: I Make Movies'

15 April 2014 8:42 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The Guardian said in February that Wes Anderson, 45, is probably at the halfway point of his career, with 8 films under his belt. But stacked up against director John Ford’s 140 films (made between 1917 and 1966), Anderson is anything but prolific. But don’t take that as a slight against Anderson—because you know we love him—instead see it as a great reason to study Ford’s oeuvre. Cinephilia and Beyond recently uncovered an interview with Ford from 1968 that the BBC never aired. Asc John Bailey uncovered the interview he worked on during a simple YouTube search a few years back. “I recognized it instantly as the interview on which I had worked. The video looked like uncorrected, raw dailies; I could believe it had never been broadcast, although Joseph McBride says he saw a finished version titled ‘My Name is John Ford: I Make Movies,’” said Bailey.
