BBC Culture curates 100 best American films, courtesy of 62 international film critics

22 July 2015 5:01 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

BBC Culture has this week unveiled a new list of the top 100 American films, as voted for by a pool of international film critics from across the globe. The format of the poll was that any film that would make the list had to have recieved funding from a Us source, and the directors of the films did not need to be from the USA, nor did the films voted for need to be filmed in the Us.

Critics were asked to submit their top 10 lists, which would try to find the top 100 American films that while “not necessarily the most important, but the greatest on an emotional level”. The list, as you may have guessed, is very different to the lists curated by say the BFI or AFI over the years, so there are certainly a few surprises on here, with Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave (2013), Terrence Malick »

Scratching our heads at the BBC's top 100 American Movies of All-Time

21 July 2015 5:07 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

First off, let's make one thing clear.  We're not scratching our heads at Spike Lee's "Do The Right Thing" making the BBC's 100 greatest American films.  That movie, of which an image accompanies this post, not only made the list, but ranked appropriately at no. 25.  It's the rest of the selections that have us scratching and, yes, shaking our heads in disbelief. A wonderful page view driver, these sorts of lists make great fodder for passionate movie fans no matter what their age or part of the world they hail from.  There is nothing more entertaining than watching two critics from opposite ends of the globe try to debate whether "The Dark Knight" should have been nominated for best picture or make a list like this.  Even in this age of short form content where Vines, Shapchats and Instagram videos have captured viewers attention, movies will continue to inspire because »

'Citizen Kane' Tops BBC's List of "100 Greatest American Films", Where Does Your Favorite Landc

21 July 2015 11:46 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Leave it to the Brits to compile a list of the best American films of all-time. BBC Culture has published a list of what it calls "The 100 Greatest American Films", as selected by 62 international film critics in order to "get a global perspective on American film." As BBC Culture notes, the critics polled represent a combination of broadcasters, book authors and reviewers at various newspapers and magazines across the world. As for what makes an American filmc "Any movie that received funding from a U.S. source," BBC Culture's publication states, which is to say the terminology was quite loose, but the list contains a majority of the staples you'd expect to see. Citizen Kane -- what elsec -- comes in at #1, and in typical fashion The Godfather follows at #2. Vertigo, which in 2012 topped Sight & Sound's list of the greatest films of all-time, comes in at #3 on BBC Culture's list. »

BBC Names 100 Greatest U.S. Films

21 July 2015 9:56 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Every now and then a major publication or news organisation comes up with a top fifty or one hundred films of all time list - a list which always stirs up debate, discussion and often interesting arguments about the justifications of the list's inclusions, ordering and notable exclusions.

Today it's the turn of BBC Culture who consulted sixty-two international film critics including print reviews, bloggers, broadcasters and film academics to come up with what they consider the one-hundred greatest American films of all time. To qualify, the film had to be made by a U.S. studio or mostly funded by American money.

Usually when a list of this type is done it is by institutes or publications within the United States asking American critics their favourites. This time it's non-American critics born outside the culture what they think are the best representations of that culture. Specifically they were asked »

At The Paris Theatre, the greats of the past - Ernst Lubitsch, Billy Wilder, Charlie Chaplin and Frank Capra - and Italy's recent past - Dino Risi, Ettore Scola and Mario Monicelli - blended with Ken Loach, Michel Gondry and Woody Allen as Samba co-director Olivier Nakache and Omar Sy spoke with me on the red carpet. Sy also starred in Nakache and Eric Toledano's The Intouchables. Omar Sy will soon be seen in John Wells' (of August: Osage County fame) Adam Jones with Bradley Cooper and Alicia Vikander and is filming Ron Howard's Inferno with Tom Hanks, Ben Foster and Felicity Jones.

Film Review: ‘Microbe and Gasoline’

9 July 2015 8:24 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If Michel Gondry’s movies were books, they’d come with hand-stitched covers, fold-out pop-ups and a progression of flipbook-style doodles in the bottom corner of every page. No other working director brings quite the same lo-fi, do-it-yourself quality to his filmmaking, and yet, Gondry’s inventive charm has often proven to be his own worst enemy, overtaking and cutesifying stories that might play better without all the confetti and curlicues. With “Microbe and Gasoline,” the French writer-director has wisely restrained his usual flourishes, allowing the two teenage leads in his relatively calm summer-vacation coming-of-age comedy to assume center stage, imbuing them with creative agency, rather than forcing them to compete with the film’s own style. What emerges is an admittedly small, but wonderfully sincere portrait of two adolescent outsiders determined to pave their own way in the world.

Quietly released in France after being slighted by the festival circuit, »

Watch: 'The Wolfpack' Brothers Visit The Criterion Collection

8 July 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

One of the most discussed documentaries of the year is Crystal Moselle’s “The Wolfpack,” a tender portrait of the isolated Angulo family that was kept indoors by a domineering father. The six brothers – the seventh and youngest sibling, a sister, was largely kept offscreen in the film and has not been in the public eye in the aftermath – coped with the isolation by watching an extraordinary amount of movies and recreating some of their favorites in a way that would make Michel Gondry proud. And so, it makes perfect sense that these budding and now-famous cinephiles were invited to The Criterion Collection’s hallowed closet to pick out some of their favorite movies. Whether you know them through Moselle’s heartbreaking and heartwarming film or last month’s "20/20" special, or not at all, the sheer joy with which the Angulo brothers – Mukunda, Narayana, Govinda, Bhagavan, Krisna (now Glenn) and »

Listen: Michel Gondry's Funky Pop Single "Beautiful" Featuring Spleen & Yael Naim

Michel Gondry has certainly proven he can inventively cut visuals to music, directing eye-popping videos for artists like Bjork, Chemical Brothers, Beck, Kanye West, White Stripes, and more. But he has a little musical itch to scratch himself? Coming from out of nowhere, the filmmaker has just dropped a funky new single. Read More: Watch The First International Trailer For Michel Gondry's 'Microbe And Gasoline' Featuring Yael Naim (who launched into fame after Apple used her track "New Soul" in their campaign for MacBook Air) and rapper/beatboxer Spleen on vocals, "Beautiful" is otherwise completely written and performed by Gondry, and rides a prominent retro funk vibe. In an interview with Metro last year, Spleen said there was an album in the works, but no word if that's still forthcoming.  Give the track a spin below, along with a remix version.

Watch: Short Film 'Mirror Heart' Presented By 'The Wolfpack' Brothers Plus Full '20/20' Segment

25 June 2015 10:13 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

From being essentially imprisoned in a tiny apartment on the Lower East Side of New York City to being the toast of film festivals and the subject of an episode of ABC’s “20/20,” things have turned out well for the Angulo Brothers. Recently, Vice teamed up with the brothers to create a short film utilizing the talents they demonstrated in Crystal Moselle’s claustrophobically intimate and tender documentary “The Wolfpack” —read our Sundance review here— but this time they’re not recreating one of their favorite movies.

Watch the trailer for Michel Gondry’s ‘Microbe et Gasoil’

22 June 2015 7:53 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Michel Gondry, best known for his classic Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, returned to his French roots in 2013 with the whimsical Mood Indigo. And with his latest film Microbe et Gasoil, though he has remained in France, he’s scaled back the fantasy and magic to a more modest and realistic form of whimsy.

Microbe et Gasoil, or the American title Microbe and Gasoline, is a coming-of-age story of two teenage boys, one popular and one horribly awkward, who become friends and build a moving house on wheels to travel across country.

The film opens in France on July 8 but does not yet have an American distribution or release date. Watch the trailer below via Facebook:

As was his cinematographer, Ellen Kuras, of Michel Gondry's Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind and Be Kind Rewind as well as first-time composer, Peter Gregson, whose music is well placed in the landscape. Cédric Anger, when I spoke with him on his composer, Grégoire Hetzel, for Next Time I’ll Aim For The Heart, told me he had wanted the music in the forest sound like a cathedral.

Watch: First International Trailer For Michel Gondry’s 'Microbe And Gasoline'

19 June 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Flying mostly under the radar, Michel Gondry's "Microbe And Gasoline" is yet another very budget endeavor for the filmmaker who always manages to find new ways to repurpose cardboard. While the phrase Gondry-esque is perhaps thrown around too often, this latest is one you truly can't imagine coming from anybody else. Ange Dargent and Théophile Bacquet lead the movie (which also has an appearance by Gondry's "Mood Indigo" star Audrey Tautou) in the tale of Microbe and Diesel, two pals who decide that summer with their respective families won't be any fun. Instead, they build their own wacky car and hit the highway for an adventure that takes them across France.  Read More: Interview: Michel Gondry On 'Mood Indigo,' Fancy Props, And The Future Of Stop-Motion Animation The film opens in France on July 8th.

Rick Famuyiwa's Sundance hit "Dope" sent critics over the moon with its fresh new take on what's been called "the post-hip hop generation." While that label is up for debate, it's impossible to deny the other inventive hip hop inspired films that have led up to this moment.
