In fashion with Pasolini by Anne-Katrin Titze

Abel Ferrara's Pasolini stars a divine Willem Dafoe as Pier Paolo Pasolini, with Maria de Medeiros, Riccardo Scamarcio, Adriana Asti, Valerio Mastandrea and Giada Colagrande. Developed by Maurizio Braucci from an idea by Nicola Tranquillino and Ferrara, Pasolini begins and ends on one fatal day.

Willem Dafoe as Pier Paolo Pasolini: "It's one thing to show, it's another thing to do."

Dafoe recently starred in Anton Corbijn's A Most Wanted Man. I asked him if Lars von Trier's Antichrist and Martin Scorsese's Last Temptation Of Christ prepared him for Pasolini's final day. Ferrara told me what that means to him. Fashion, architecture, research, restaurants, apartments and the power of three, pushed our conversation into Abel Ferrara and Willem Dafoe's working relationship upon entering Pasolini's world. »

Pasolini | 2014 Tiff Review

The Gospel According to Pier: Ferrara Poetically Captures an Auteur’s Last Day on Earth

It appears that 2014 marks a resounding return for auteur Abel Ferrara, unleashing two new films comingled from actual noted events, both destined for diverse responses and uncompromising in their audacity. The first is, of course, the Strauss-Kahn film, Welcome to New York, which has already received a debilitated premiere after a botched release on the Cannes market (treated to an unwarranted, venomous response reeking of pretentious bias) and the Us distributor has come under direct fire from Ferrara for suggesting cuts—don’t listen to any of that drama and see it as soon as you’re able. The other title is Pasolini, reuniting Ferrara with Willem Dafoe to explore the last day in the life of the famed Italian auteur Pier Paolo Pasolini, who died on November 2, 1975, and whose murderer has never been found. »

'Pulp Fiction,' A to Z

21 May 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Twenty years ago today, Quentin Tarantino and Harvey Weinstein unveiled the filmmaker’s sophomore movie — an ambitious anthology of crime stories, all interconnected and metatextualized — at a late Saturday night screening at the Cannes Film Festival. A little over three hours later, as the crowd staggered out of the Palais des Festivals, they knew they had an audience favorite on their hands. Soon, they would be able to add Palme d’Or winner, Best Picture Oscar nominee, the first indie film to break the $100 million mark, a gamechanger and a modern classic to the list. »

Ibero-American film support body Cinema23 has announced that the inaugural Fénix Film Awards will take place in Mexico City in October. 

The awards, granted by more than 350 global film professionals, will award 12 categories and four special recognitions.

Cinema23 director Ricardo Giraldo was joined by Portuguese filmmaker and actress Maria de Medeiros, Brazil’s Alice Braga, Spains’ Paz Vega and Ana de la Reguera from Mexico at a launch event in Cannes [16].

Schedule changes prevented Cannes competition juror Gael Garcia Bernal from attending.

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #35. Guy Maddin’s Spiritisms

3 March 2014 7:15 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Spiritisms

Director: Guy Madden

Writers: Evan Johnson, Robert Kotyk, Kim Morgan, Guy Maddin

Producers: Centre Pompideu

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Charlotte Rampling, Gerladine Chaplin, Udo Kier, Mathieu Amalric, Maria de Medeiros, Ariane Labed, Amira Casar, Elina Löwensohn, Adèle Haenel, Mathieu Demy

While we thought this would be a 2013 title, the year has come and gone without much word on this project until a recent interview with Charlotte Rampling revealed that this was more of a project rather than a film, perhaps to be released online, but no details have been released one whether this will survive as one entire film. We’re thinking Guy Maddin’s 2014 will revolve around this project and another short he’s been working on, “Seances,” as he preps his long gestating The Seduction of Ingmar Bergman.

Gist: A portmanteau-style anthology of reenactments, recreations or reinventions from various lost or abandoned films (the film »

Royale with Cheese: 'Pulp Fiction' Gets a Live Reading at Lacma

21 February 2014 7:07 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

When Quentin Tarantino's brilliant, groundbreaking Pulp Fiction was released twenty years ago, Joseph Gordon-Levitt was the 13-year-old star of the Disney sports comedy Angels in the Outfield. Last night, he starred in a live reading of Pulp Fiction as Vincent Vega (John Travolta's character), effectively getting a do-over on 1994.

The Film Independent at Lacma Live Read, now in its third season of unrehearsed public performances of classic screenplays with new actors, was founded by Jason Reitman, who has stepped aside in recent months in favor of a sequence of guest directors. »
