Film Nerd 2.0 stays gold with an emotional screening of 'The Outsiders'

29 July 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Film Nerd 2.0 is an ongoing series in which we explore the ways we share media with our kids, particularly those of us who grew up deeply in love with movies. The media landscape has changed completely, and parents need to be more engaged than ever in what their kids watch and what they take from that entertainment. "Daddy, why did the Karate Kid Johnny die?" When "The Outsiders" was released in 1983, I was 13, and I already dearly loved the S.E. Hinton novel. It's melodramatic as hell, but that's how it feels to be a teenager, no matter what era you're talking about. I may not have had to deal with Socs or Greasers, but navigating the turbulent emotional landscape of adolescence was something that informed every line of Hinton's book. Francis Ford Coppola's film is burnished and beautiful, and it featured a young cast made up of actors on »

Time Machine: Veterans Wallach and Coppola - Godfather 3 in Common - Are Special Oscar Honorees

24 April 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson on the Oscars' Red Carpet Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson at the Academy Awards Eli Wallach and wife Anne Jackson are seen above arriving at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony, held on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. The 95-year-old Wallach had received an Honorary Oscar at the Governors Awards in November 2010. See also: "Doris Day Inexplicably Snubbed by Academy," "Maureen O'Hara Honorary Oscar," "Honorary Oscars: Mary Pickford, Greta Garbo Among Rare Women Recipients," and "Hayao Miyazaki Getting Honorary Oscar." Delayed film debut The Actors Studio-trained Eli Wallach was to have made his film debut in Fred Zinnemann's Academy Award-winning 1953 blockbuster From Here to Eternity. Ultimately, however, Frank Sinatra – then a has-been following a string of box office duds – was cast for a pittance, getting beaten to a pulp by a pre-stardom Ernest Borgnine. For his bloodied efforts, Sinatra went on »

Marital pressures on diplay in exclusive 'Directed by Winding Refn' clip

26 February 2015 3:50 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As Nicolas Winding Refn prepares to begin production on "The Neon Demon," his upcoming foray into horror, you can take a peek into his process thanks to the new documentary "My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn," which was made by his wife. There's a reason "Hearts Of Darkness" is often considered one of the best behind-the-scenes films about filmmaking, and it's because Eleanor Coppola had access that no one else would have. The same is true here, and it captures Refn at the moment where he was working to follow up his breakthrough hit "Drive." It's a fascinating moment for any filmmaker. In Refn's case, he did a lot of great work before "Drive," but everything came together on that movie in a very special way. Ryan Gosling was at peak cool, and there was something compelling and immediate about that title and those trailers. When you make a »

Film Review: ‘My Life Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn’

26 February 2015 3:10 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rather than take a backseat to “Drive” director Nicolas Winding Refn, occasional actress and full-time housewife Liz Corfixen fires back with a film of her own, billed as a behind-the-scenes look at her helmer husband’s Bangkok-made “Only God Forgives,” but essentially a loose production diary from her point of view. For anyone who’s ever wondered what being married to a tortured, world-famous director must be like, “My Life Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn” suggests the sacrifices required of those who live in an artist’s orbit, but it fails to offer what groupies surely want, which is insight into Refn’s creative process.

Though billed as a documentary, this 59-minute doodle barely rises above homemovie status, featuring more material of Corfixen’s two daughters dancing naked around hotel rooms than it does actual on-set footage — though ambient music from “Drive” composer Cliff Martinez gives her a distinct advantage over most amateur videographers. »

Glasgow 2015: 'My Life Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn'

26 February 2015 1:13 PM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆ Liv Corfixen's My Life Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn (2014) starts from the unfortunate position of being wide open to comparison with another behind-the-scenes peek, Eleanor Coppola's Heart of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse (1991). Where that film followed the incredible disasters that befell Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now (1979) shoot, this documents the far less eventful making of Danish enfant terrible Refn's Only God Forgives (2013). While Corfixen's film - clocking in at just under an hour - is little more than a DVD extra, it's also an intimate look at her husband's struggle with artistic satisfaction and her own with a life indentured to his blossoming career.

New Trailer For My Life Directed Arrives

18 February 2015 4:01 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Occasionally a making-of documentary comes along that transcends the format's more usual DVD-special-feature status. Eleanor Coppola's Hearts Of Darkness springs to mind, as does Les Blank's Burden Of Dreams. And now here's a new one to potentially join that select pantheon. Check out the trailer for Liv Corfixen's My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn, in which she documents her husband's fraught emotional journey bringing Only God Forgives to the screen.Much like Eleanor Coppola, it's clear that Corfixen's relationship to her subject gave her access to moments where any normal documentary crew would have told to push off for a while. Refn is generally a self-deprecating character in interviews anyway, but it's fascinating to see him quite this vulnerable. "I've been making this film for three years," he opines at one point, "and I have no idea what it's about."My LIfe Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn »

A Rundown Of Buzzy Berlin Titles As Market Begins To Roll

6 February 2015 8:34 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

The halls are starting to hum softly here in Berlin as the European Film Market swings into gear. The first deals were announced yesterday before the event officially opened, with The Weinstein Co notably boarding Im Global’s The Man Who Made It Snow. This morning, FilmNation unveiled a series of offshore output deals for titles from Open Road, which will kick off with the Jamie Foxx/Michelle Monaghan-starrer Sleepless Nights.

Though it’s not likely to be a frenzy, and with currency concerns in the market internationally, Berlin should see more action in the coming days. Distributors are looking for product for 2016 and beyond, and some memorable buys have emerged here in recent years. In 2014, The Weinstein Company made a record-setting $7M deal for The Imitation Game which has now made about $140M worldwide and has an armful of Oscar nominations to boot.
