Framed: A Woman Under the Influence

10 December 2010 10:12 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Columns, Cinematical

Earlier this year, cinematographer Caleb Deschanel was awarded with the American Society of Cinematographers' Lifetime Achievement Award. While he received widespread acclaim for 'The Black Stallion' and 'Being There' early on in his filmography, it was the work he did with independent cinema legend John Cassavetes that launched his career. Deschanel and the director teamed up for 'A Woman Under the Influence' -- the harrowing story of a working-class family, starring Peter Falk and Cassevetes' wife and muse, Gena Rowlands.

"I'll be whatever you want me to be," Mabel Longhetti tells her husband, Nick. He's a blue-collar worker who shouts before talking and slaps before caressing. Mabel's prone to some odd behavior -- it's like another part of her that tends to crawl out of hiding when Nick isn't around. She searches for affection at a bar with strange men, and is totally unprepared »

DVD Playhouse—November 2010

By Allen Gardner

Paths Of Glory (Criterion) Stanley Kubrick’s 1957 antiwar classic put him on the map as a major filmmaker. Kirk Douglas stars in a true story about a French officer in Ww I who locks horns with the military’s top brass after his men are court-martialed for failing to carry out an obvious suicide mission. A perfect film, across the board, with fine support from George Macready as one of the most despicable martinet’s ever captured on film, Ralph Meeker, and Adolphe Menjou, all oily charm as a conniving General. Also available on Blu-ray disc. Bonuses: Audio commentary by critic Gary Giddins; Excerpt from 1966 audio interview with Kubrick; 1979 interview with Douglas; New interviews with Jan Harlan, Christiane Kubrick, and producer James B. Harris; French television documentary on real-life case which inspired the film; Trailer. Widescreen. Dolby 1.0 mono.

Thx 1138 and Lost In Space Blu-ray Reviews

1 October 2010 9:03 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

There are both rational and irrational reasons for hating the prequel trilogy. With the rise of Red Letter Media, that internet phenomenon that has made a name shit-talking the Star Trek: Next Generations films, and The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones, there is a more present sense of disappointment with the Lucas empire- but it’s something that has been haunting Lucas about a couple days after people started seeing Tpm and word set in. But as not great as the prequels were, there’s other reasons to be bummed about those films besides just fan service. Until he made the prequel trilogy, George Lucas had a stunning cinematic record as a director. His first film Thx 1138 is a classic, and deserves to be appreciated. Another reason to be disappointed is that he led the way for films like Lost in Space, the 1998 warm-up for the prequel trilogy. »

Director Aaron Schneider and Producer Dean Zanuck Interview Get Low

31 July 2010 7:26 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

An 8-year labor of love for producer Dean Zanuck (Road to Perdition), Get Low is an entertaining and colorful story about one man’s last-ditch quest for redemption inspired by an eccentric 1930s Tennessee hermit known as Felix “Bush,” who famously came out of hiding to throw his own funeral party while he was still very much alive and kicking.

Based on a screenplay written by Chris Provenzano (Mad Men) and C. Gaby Mitchell (Blood Diamond), Get Low is directed by Aaron Schneider, a talented young filmmaker who makes his feature debut after winning the Academy Award for his short, Two Soldiers. The film features a terrific cast that includes Robert Duvall as the mysterious backwoods recluse, Bill Murray as the fast-talking funeral home owner who senses a big payday in the offing, Lucas Black as his young apprentice, and Sissy Spacek as a lonely widow and the only person »

The Best Cinematography of the Last Decade

30 June 2010 8:42 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Cinematography and its significance is an aspect of film that is usually overlooked by your average movie goer. Often times when a director is know for consistently maintaining a certain style it is due in part to the cinematographers contribution. Like film editors, cinematographers take a back seat to directors when it comes to the public’s perception of each of their significances. Although it is ultimately the directors medium, the cinematographer guides the tone and feel of the film by controlling the aesthetics. This is of course excluding art direction, wardrobe and set design. A beautifully constructed sequence arrests your attention with such command and power, while still displaying a subtle eloquence. This display of the mastery of film is often referred to as something “cinematic”. In that moment it is film declaring “I am what I am.”  The cinematographer plays an instrumental role is deciding what that declaration is going to convey. »

American Cinematographer’s List Of The 50 Films With The Best Cinematography From 1998-2008

29 June 2010 8:00 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

American Cinematographer – the official magazine of the American Society of Cinematographers – just published a ranking of the best shot films for the 1998 to 2008 decade, and Amélie tops the list.

I initially thought the selections were chosen specifically by members of the Asc, but I learned that it was actually an open process; in short, the magazine asked its subscribers all over the world to nominate 10 films released between 1998 and 2008, that they believed had the best cinematography; the 50 most popular choices were then posted on the Asc website, with the rest of the public free to vote/rank the 50 finalists. Reportedly, more than 17,000 people around the world participated.

And, as already stated, Amélie was ranked in the top spot most consistently. I haven’t watched Amélie in years, but I’d certainly throw it up there on my list of one of the best shot films from 1998 to 2008. Will it be my #1? I don’t know. »

DVD Playhouse—April 2010

By

Allen Gardner

Ride With The Devil (Criterion) Ang Lee’s revisionist take on the Civil War is awash in moral ambiguity, along with some stunning cinematography, production design, and fine performances. Set during the Kansas-Missouri border war, Tobey Maguire and Skeet Ulrich star as two friends who join up with the Confederate-sympathizing Bushwhackers, finding an odd ally in a former slave (Jeffrey Wright). While it’s fascinating to see America’s bloodiest conflict through the eyes of a foreigner, thereby allowing much of the previously mentioned ambiguity a certain latitude, the film never loses the bad taste it leaves for one simple reason: it asks us, the audience, to side with not just the Confederates, but some of the lowest trash that made up the dregs, and the fringes, of the movement. Big points for audacity, but snake eyes on the story itself. Singer Jewel is impressive in her film debut. »
