Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’ ‘Hell or High Water’ Score: Listen to Two Excerpts from the Stirring Ost

13 July 2016 3:52 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Nick Cave and Warren Ellis’ “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford” soundtrack is among the best, most frequently co-opted film scores of the last decade, and news of further collaboration between the two tends to be welcome among cinephiles. Their latest is David Mackenzie’s “Hell or High Water,” which premiered at Cannes in May ahead of its theatrical release next month. Pitchfork has excerpts from two songs.

Comancheria” and “Mama’s Room” are the tunes in question, both of them readily identifiable as the work of the Bad Seeds bandmates. Of their work, Mackenzie told Pitchfork that “What I love about Nick and Warren’s film music is that it’s epic and expansive without being grandiose. For me as a filmmaker this hits »

Nick Cave-Andrew Dominik ready music film 'One More Time With Feeling'

3 June 2016 9:08 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Feature will include the first chance to hear songs from upcoming Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds album.

Musician Nick Cave has teamed with director Andrew Dominik for One More Time With Feeling, a feature that will include the first opportunity anyone will have to hear songs from Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds 16th studio album, Skeleton Tree.

The film will be distributed to more than 650 cinemas around the world by Picturehouse Entertainment on September 8, prior to the release of the album the following day.

Originally a performance based concept, One More Time With Feeling will explore the writing and recording of the album and delve into its tragic backdrop (Cave’s 15-year-old son, Arthur, died in July 2015 after falling from a cliff).

Interwoven throughout the Bad Seeds’ filmed performance of the new album are interviews and footage shot by Dominik, accompanied by Cave’s narration.

Andrew Dominik Returning With Nick Cave Feature Film ‘One More Time With Feeling’

2 June 2016 6:49 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It was just last week we were wondering what was next in store for The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford director Andrew Dominik, with rumors that his long-gestating Blonde would finally be going forward thanks to Netflix. It looks like we’ll get a film from him much sooner than expected, as he reunited with his Jesse James composer Nick Cave for a feature on the making of their new album, Skeleton Tree.

Ahead of a September 9th release of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds’ sixteenth studio LP, Dominik’s film One More Time With Feeling will screen in theaters worldwide the prior evening, on September 8th. Shot in both black-and-white and color, as well as 3D and 2D, see details on the “stark, fragile, and raw” film below.

Originally a performance based concept, One More Time With Feeling evolved into something much more significant as »

Andrew Dominik’s 10 Favorite Films

27 May 2016 11:40 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Across his three features this century, Andrew Dominik has explored masculine ideals (and the lack thereof) with an uncompromising vision. While earning the most acclaim for his stunning western The Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford, his follow-up Killing Them Softly is also distinctive in its laser-focused fury, getting the impressive distinction of an “F” CinemaScore to cement it as something truly special. His long-gestating next feature, Blonde, is hopefully still happening (the last we heard, Netflix may back it and shooting could begin as early as this year), but as we wait for confirmation, today we’re looking at his favorite films of all-time.

Courtesy of his Sight & Sound ballot, it’s a primarily American-focused line-up with classics from Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorsese, Billy Wilder, and David Lynch (x2). Perhaps most interesting is his favorite Alfred Hitchcock film, one of the man’s last five features: Marnie, »

Cinemascore and exit polling in Hollywood: what is it?

If a film gets a Cinemascore of B or C, it's often classed as a disappointment. But what is a Cinemascore?

The process of marketing a movie is now an operation that lasts many months across all sorts of media, from bus stop posters to social media campaigns, all in pursuit of making sure the movie makes an impact in its opening weekend. Tracking and analytics can give an indication of how audiences are responding before the movie even hits cinemas, but it's only in that opening weekend, once they've actually seen the movie, that you can get a more accurate read on public opinion.

Box office aside, one way in which Hollywood's studios reads public response after release is Cinemascore, the Las Vegas-based market research firm which conducts nationwide exit polls. Billed as “Hollywood's Benchmark”, the company's researchers gathers information from filmgoers and the results, expressed as letter grades, »

The Enigmatic Terrence Malick

8 May 2016 6:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the UK release of Knight of Cups this weekend, Neil Calloway looks at a unique directing talent…

Terrence Malick has directed seven films since his debut with Badlands in 1973. That might not seem like many, but when you factor in the fact that between the release of Days of Heaven in 1978 and The Thin Red Line in 1998 he didn’t make a single film, he’s got quite an impressive work rate.

Despite so few films being made, his influence on other film-makers is huge. When Malick’s The Tree of Life was released, Christopher Nolan spoke of his influence on his own films. While that’s hard to see, it’s undoubtedly true that Malick’s films has influenced many writers and directors. True Romance is Tarantino’s homage to Badlands, David Gordon Green’s work shows his influence. Paul Thomas Anderson’s There Will Be Blood contains very Malickian scenes, »

Cannes archives: Screen's Jury Grid 2012 - winners and losers

4 May 2016 11:00 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

As Cannes approaches, Screen casts its eye back at the winners and losers of 2012 according to our jury of critics.

Screen International’s jury of international critics has long been a strong indicator as to what will take the top prizes at the Cannes Film Festival – and 2012 was no different.

Sharing the Jury Grid’s top spot in 2012 were Cristian Mungiu’s Romanian drama Beyond the Hills and Michael Haneke’s heart-breaking Amour.

Both films scored 3.3 out of 4 and Amour went away with the festival’s coveted Palme d’Or.

Amour was Haneke’s second film to win the Cannes top prize, after 2009’s chilling pre-war drama The White Ribbon.

Beyond the Hills also performed strongly, winning awards for best screenplay and best actress for its two leading ladies Cristina Flutur and Cosmina Stratan. Director Mungiu has another shot at the Palme d’Or this year with Graduation (Bacalaureat).

Tie-breaker

It was a year for ties, with »

The Extraordinary Ordinary: 15 Films That Have Influenced ‘Midnight Special’ Director Jeff Nichols

17 March 2016 12:56 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The films of writer-director Jeff Nichols are all about characters, ordinary men and women pushed to the limit by forces outside of their control. Again and again, Nichols trains his eye on the themes of family, its bonds and hardships: his films often about not only what it means to be a father, but also what it means to be a son or daughter. The setting is usually classically American small towns and back roads, where a person can look up at the sky and find an ocean of stars. Under those stars, Nichols lets his dramas —Mud, Take Shelter, and Shotgun Stories — play out, some darker and more bloody than others.

His newest film, Midnight Special, is out this week in limited release. Its plot follows a father forced to go on the run with his young son, a boy possessing mysterious powers, to escape a team of ruthless government agents. »

Scott Reviews Kenneth Lonergan’s Manchester by the Sea [Sundance 2016]

27 January 2016 1:17 PM, PST | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

A note for readers – although I will attempt not to reveal crucial plot details that don’t fall under the general umbrella of the film’s premise (and which will certainly be incorporated into future trailers and the like), everyone has their own definitions of these things, so consider this fair warning.

All three of Kenneth Lonergan’s films deal with how people cope after tragedies. In You Can Count on Me, it was the past – two siblings who lost their parents in a car accident at a young age develop different ways of surviving that. In Margaret, the present; a teenager witnesses a horrific bus accident that leaves a woman dead in her arms. Manchester by the Sea folds a tragedy of the past into one of the present.

Blu-ray Review – The Friends of Eddie Coyle (1973)

24 January 2016 9:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Friends of Eddie Coyle, 1973.

Directed by Peter Yates.

Starring Robert Mitchum, Peter Boyle, Richard Jordan, Steven Keats, Alex Rocco, Joe Santos and Mitchell Ryan.

Synopsis:

After his last crime has him looking at a long prison sentence for repeat offenses, a low level Boston gangster decides to snitch on his friends to avoid jail time.

Eddie Coyle is a small time gun runner for an organised crime outfit in Boston. He knows the game. He knows when to keep his mouth shut and what happens to those who do not. They call him ‘Fingers’ due to an incident with his hand, an open drawer, and someone’s foot closing that draw on his hand. It’s a constant reminder of the life he chose.

We enter the film with Eddie in trouble; caught smuggling contraband and it’s not his first time which means another stretch in jail. But Eddie is 51 years old, »

Steven Spielberg’s ‘Ready Player One’ Eyes Ben Mendelsohn For Lead Villain Role

6 January 2016 3:16 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After working with Terrence Malick, Christopher Nolan, Ridley Scott, Andrew Dominik, Derek Cianfrance, and many more, Ben Mendelsohn finally got a substantial leading role this year with Mississippi Grind, leading to more deserved attention. It looks like he’s now caught the eyes of another top director: Steven Spielberg.

On the heels of Bridge of Spies and ahead of The Bfg this summer, he plans to kick off production on Ready Player One this March in the U.K. and now he’s found his villain. According to THR, Mendelsohn is in early talks for the role of an evil Internet executive in the story which is partially set in a virtual world called Oasis. Also starring Olivia Cooke, it follows a yet-to-be-cast teenager who finds himself competing in a treasure hunt against ruthless foes after the game’s founder dies and offers his fortune as the grand prize.
