BFI Review – When Harry Met Sally (1989)

17 December 2015 12:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When Harry Met Sally, 1989.

Directed by Rob Reiner.

Starring Meg Ryan, Billy Crystal, Carrie Fisher and Bruno Kirby.

Synopsis:

Harry and Sally are destined to be together but it takes ten years (and lots of laughs) together before they figure it out…

There’s something quietly satisfying about Harry Burns’ sweeping statements. As he confidently tells Sally Albright how her chirpy demeanor is merely blissful ignorance, we appreciate his honesty. Both Harry and Sally have very different outlooks on life but they fit together like puzzle pieces. Harry meets Sally on a car trip to New York, as he criticises, condemns and insults her positive energy (itself a visade as her frustration waiting for him reveals). Both are passionate people and instantly likeable, and we can relate to them more than the vast majority of characters we see on-screen today.

Spanning an enormous period (beginning in 1977 and finishing in 1989), When Harry Met Sally »

77 Reasons Christopher Lloyd Is Awesome, in Honor of His 77th Birthday

22 October 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Happy 77th birthday to one of our favorite actors, Christopher Lloyd!

The actor, who's played some of filmdom's most beloved characters, including Doc Brown in "Back to the Future," Professor Plum in "Clue," and Uncle Fester in the "Addams Family" films, was born on October 22, 1938 in Stamford, Conn.

Partly because of his height, and partly because of his manic intensity and commitment to even the wildest characters, he's portrayed a series of eccentrics, from mad scientists to aliens; had an impressive, award-winning theater career; and will always be remembered as Reverend Jim on "Taxi."

In honor of his 77th birthday, we've come up with 75 reasons why he's so awesome.

1. He's played a Klingon, a cartoon, the Wizard of Oz, an angel, a leper, and a geriatric vampire.

2. He stands an impressive 6'1."

3. Because he's so tall, he had to hunch over to appear in the same frame with "Back to the Future »

“It’s Almost Impossible to Watch Something That was Shot on Film Projected on Film”: Dp Jody Lee Lipes on Trainwreck

27 July 2015 8:54 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

The Judd Apatow-directed Trainwreck is being hailed as a breakthrough for much of its cast. It’s turned Amy Schumer – who stars as a monogamy-challenged New York magazine writer — into a movie star, Bill Hader into a leading man and LeBron James into his generation’s Bruno Kirby. But the film is an equally big break for the man behind the camera – Trainwreck cinematographer Jody Lee Lipes. In the past, Apatow has opted for veteran d.p.’s with intimidating credits. Unforgiven’s Jack Green shot The 40-Year-Old Virgin. Schindler’s List’s Janusz Kaminski lensed Funny People. On Trainwreck, Apatow turned the camera over to […] »

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.

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 »
