Star Trek Continues Episode 10: To Boldly Go

  • Cinelinx
Part one of the final episode for the Web’s finest fan-made series came out this week, and as usual, it does not disappoint. As Star Trek Continues warps to its conclusion, long-time Trek fans are treated to a wonderful trip back to the very beginning of the classic series.

The latest episode of Stc, “To Boldly Go” (a homage to the famous opening narrative to Classic Trek and Star Trek: The Next Generation) is a fun trip into the Trek universe that pays homage to “Where No Man Has Gone Before”, the original 1966 pilot episode for Star Trek. (Okay, that was actually the second pilot, the first being “The Cage”, starring Jeffrey Hunter as Captain Pike, but I digress.) It shows the fidelity and affection that the makers of this show have for the source material; which is why they chose to end their series that way Star Trek began.

Agnès Varda Film Series to Screen at BAMcinématek

Agnès Varda shooting “Lions Love (and Lies…)”: PhotoFest

Now is your chance to catch up on — or revisit — the works of Agnès Varda. Brooklyn’s BAMcinématek has announced an upcoming six-film series celebrating the acclaimed auteur’s work. Widely considered one of the most influential filmmakers in modern French cinema, Varda briefly located to California in the late-1960s and 80s. It’s this time period that the film series, titled “Varda in California,” commemorates.

“Varda has often derived inspiration from her surroundings,” a press release from BAMcinématek notes. “Soaking in the people, landscapes, and politics of Los Angeles and San Francisco Bay area, Varda created films that reflect life in America as only an outsider (she) could see it. Eschewing the ever-present specter of Hollywood, Varda instead became fascinated by the political and social movements roiling the state’s sunny demeanor.”

Films screening include 1980’s “Mur Murs,” a documentary about murals in La and the artists who created them, and 1981’s “Documenteur,” a work of autobiographical fiction that centers on a French mother and son’s search to find a home in La.

“Varda in California” runs from May 31 to June 13. Check out the full schedule and synopses of the films below, courtesy of BAMcinématek. For more information and tickets, head over to BAMcinématek’s site.

Film Descriptions

*All films play multiple times throughout the series.*All films directed by Agnès Varda unless otherwise noted.

Black Panthers (1968) An unapologetically radical dispatch from the front lines of the Black Powermovement: Varda profiles members of the Black Panther Party as they fight for the freedom of imprisonedactivist Huey P. Newton. Dcp. 30min.

Documenteur (1981) With Sabine Mamou, Mathieu Demy, Tom Taplin. This moving work of autobiographical fiction follows a young French woman in Los Angeles as she copes with a recent breakup and wanders the city in search of a home for her and her son. Aptly subtitled “An Emotion Picture,” the mysterious, serenely melancholic Documenteur captures Varda’s ambivalent feelings about America. Dcp. 65min.

Lions Love (. . . And Lies) (1969) With Viva, James Rado, Gerome Ragni. This irresistibly kooky time capsule takes a bevy of 60s counterculture luminaries — Warhol superstar Viva, the creators of Hair, and filmmaker Shirley Clarke — and throws them together in a luxe Hollywood home. Madness ensues, as they make prank calls, “try out” parenting with a bunch of borrowed children, and revel in the joys of free love. It’s a wildly funny perspective on the hippy-dippy oddity of La as seen by Varda. Dcp. 90min.

Model Shop (1969) Dir. Jacques Demy. With Anouk Aimée, Gary Lockwood, Alexandra Hay. Jacques Demy, along with his wife Varda, ventured to Hollywood for the one and only time in his career to make this tender, quintessentially La movie about the brief but momentous encounter between a failed architect (Lockwood) and a French erotica model (Aimée). It’s a gorgeous, pastel love letter to the “real” La — its sprawling freeways, parking lots, and seedy margins — far removed from the Dream Factory fantasy. Dcp.97min.

Mur Murs (1980) Varda takes her camera through the streets of late-70s Los Angeles to document the vibrant murals that cover the walls of the city and the artists who made them. Mur Murs is both an essential record of La’s street art and a lively celebration of the city’s diversity. Dcp. 80min.

Uncle Yanco (1967) Varda’s first American film — in which she journeys to meet a long lost bohemian relative living in Sausalito — is a freewheeling family affair that grooves on the good vibes of sun-kissed 60s California. Dcp. 18min.

Agnès Varda Film Series to Screen at BAMcinématek was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Here's A Guy Who Designs Masks Made Out Of Sneakers!

Most costume creators don't work with shoes...mainly because I would imagine it's super expensive. Gary Lockwood, aka Freehand Profit, isn't most costume creators. While I wonder how much they set him back, I gotta say these masks he created are pretty spectacular! Watching the video you'll see that Lockwood makes the helmets and gas masks the way he does for reasons other than having a lot of money. Learn more about his life and art below.

Actor Robert Vaughn Dead At Age 83; Oscar Nominee And Star Of "The Man From U.N.C.L.E."

  • CinemaRetro
This Article Has Been Updated

By Lee Pfeiffer

The past year has been an especially harsh one for the entertainment industry in terms of well-known personalities who have passed away. Today's news that actor Robert Vaughn has died hits Cinema Retro especially hard and this writer in particular. He died from a battle with leukemia and was surrounded by his family in his final moments. I first met Robert in 1983 at a press conference in New York in which he and David McCallum promoted their forthcoming TV movie "Return of The Man From U.N.C.L.E." I've remained friends with them ever since and shared many an enjoyable conversation. Robert was an early supporter of Cinema Retro and contributed to numerous issues, most recently issues #33 and #34 in which he was interviewed by writer Steve Rubin about the dramatic occurrences in making the 1969 WWII film "The Bridge at Remagen

Beyond Fest must have their check in the mail, because ol' Jack Burton himself is coming to the festival for a 30th anniversary screening of Big Trouble in Little China.

Star Trek Is Approaching Its 50th Birthday This Fall

  • Cinelinx
The Star Trek franchise will be 50 years old this September. It’s one of the most popular and enduring of all TV and film franchises, still going strong nearly 50 years after its debut in 1966. A third film of the rebooted series is in the works. Cinelinx looks at the ever-popular sci-fi property as it warps into its 50th year.

Star Trek, a show that didn’t do very well in the ratings when it first debuted, has become a multi-media monster. It has gone from television to cartoons, novels, comic books, video games and films. Many of the character names have become an iconic part of pop-culture. The real-life space shuttle Enterprise was named in honor of the space vessel from Star Trek. The whole concept of the sci-fi convention was begun by the fan-created ‘Trek’ conventions of the early seventies. Few franchises can claim to have had the impact

‘The Martian’ Production Design Took Cues From NASA Concepts

‘The Martian’ Production Design Took Cues From NASA Concepts
Production designer Arthur Max has 13 feature films to his credit, and all but two of them have been Ridley Scott productions. It’s a consistent collaboration that has yielded two Oscar nominations (for 2000’s “Gladiator” and 2007’s “American Gangster”), and one that has run a wide spectrum, from intimate dramas (“G.I. Jane,” “Body of Lies”) to large-scale undertakings (“Kingdom of Heaven,” “Exodus: Gods and Kings”). Like 2012’s “Prometheus,” their latest collaboration, “The Martian,” takes Max and Scott off-planet for a bit of a sci-fi dip, though one much more grounded in the reality of space travel.

***

You’ve been incredibly loyal to Ridley Scott. Outside of two David Fincher projects, “Se7en” and “Panic Room,” all of your feature work has been with him.

I met both of them through commercials, at a stage where commercials were not only selling something but they were also very entertaining and I think set the bar for advertising.

Re-Viewed: 2001 A Space Odyssey, Stanley Kubrick's sci-fi masterpiece

Re-Viewed: 2001 A Space Odyssey, Stanley Kubrick's sci-fi masterpiece
Almost fifty years since it first wowed cinemagoers at the tail-end of the '60s, Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey is back in the public consciousness thanks to a cinema re-release as part of the BFI's Days of Fear and Wonder sci-fi season and its place in the just-released Kubrick Blu-ray Masterpiece Collection. That's not to mention Christopher Nolan's outer space drama Interstellar, a film that very much hangs in the shadow of its illustrious predecessor.

After destroying mankind at the close of Dr Strangelove in 1964, Kubrick sought to tell a more progressive story about humanity with his follow-up. Teaming with heralded sci-fi author Arthur C Clarke, Kubrick fashioned a screenplay that tracked the evolution of man through encounters with giant black monoliths.

Eventually released in 1968, a year before Apollo 11 touched down on the moon, 2001 was hugely ambitious both in narrative and technical terms. Kubrick reached

Ridley Scott is producing 3001: The Final Odyssey for Syfy

Arthur C. Clarke’s final follow-up to 2001: A Space Odyssey, titled 3001: The Final Odyssey, is coming to telly, thanks to Ridley Scott

Interesting news, this – Syfy is producing a TV series of Arthur C. Clarke’s last sequel novel to 2001: A Space Odyssey.

The follow-up is called 3001: The Final Odyssey, and will be executive produced by Ridley Scott and David W. Zucker of Numb3rs fame. On scripting duties is Stuart Beattie of Pirates Of The Caribbean and Collateral.

The 1997 novel is the fourth and final novel in the series, and is set, as you might have guessed, a thousand years after the events of the first book/the events of Stanley Kubrick’s iconic film. Gary Lockwood’s character from the movie, Dr Frank Poole, plays a central role – awakening on a strange planet amidst the potential return of the Monolith.

Which is the greatest British film in history? No one seems to be in agreement

Best British movies of all time? (Image: a young Michael Caine in 'Get Carter') Ten years ago, Get Carter, starring Michael Caine as a dangerous-looking London gangster (see photo above), was selected as the United Kingdom's very best movie of all time according to 25 British film critics polled by Total Film magazine. To say that Mike Hodges' 1971 thriller was a surprising choice would be an understatement. I mean, not a David Lean epic or an early Alfred Hitchcock thriller? What a difference ten years make. On Total Film's 2014 list, published last May, Get Carter was no. 44 among the magazine's Top 50 best British movies of all time. How could that be? Well, first of all, people would be very naive if they took such lists seriously, whether we're talking Total Film, the British Film Institute, or, to keep things British, Sight & Sound magazine. Second, whereas Total Film's 2004 list was the result of a 25-critic consensus,

The Definitive ‘What the F**k?’ Movies: 10-1

10. Altered States (1980)

Directed by: Ken Russell

Is it a horror film? Many of Ken Russell’s films could be argued as such, but there’s enough in Altered States that makes it less horror and more science fiction/psychological thriller. Based on the novel by Paddy Chayefsky, Altered States introduced the world to William Hurt (and also featured the film debut of Drew Barrymore). Edward Jessup (Hurt) is studying schizophrenia, but branches out into sensory deprivation experimentation with a floating tank. Eventually, he travels to Mexico to visit a tribe that provides him with an extract which he begins to take before his trips into the flotation tank, resulting in bizarre imagery and eventual physical devolution, once to a primitive man and to a near primordial blob. Side effects start to occur, causing Edward to suffer from episodes of partial regression even without the hallucinogenic drug. Russell’s direction shifts

What Movie Was Don Watching on 'Mad Men' Last Night?

What Movie Was Don Watching on 'Mad Men' Last Night?
"Mad Men" loves a good arthouse film reference, and in the disorienting opening frames of last night's "Field Trip," the series dropped one of its most puzzling cinematic name-checks to date. Up until the gut-punch of the episode's final moments, Don Draper had nothing better to do than go to a matinee in the middle of the day. So what was he watching last night? The folks at Film School Rejects are on the case: the clip was from Jacques Demy's 1969 "Model Shop." The parallels between the film and Don's state of mind are on-the-nose. This was the only American film ever to be made by the "Umbrellas of Cherbourg" director, and it stars Anouk Aimee as a French divorcee adrift in Los Angeles (how very Megan) opposite Gary Lockwood's floundering architect on the verge of existential despair. (Fun fact: Back in season four, Don and Lane Pryce

‘Mad Men’ Recap: What Don Draper Has In Common With a 1960s Art Film

French filmmaker Jacques Demy hit it big with his 1964 musical, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, garnering a Palme’ d’Or, a handful of Oscar noms, and even a name-drop on Mad Men a few years back. And because Hollywood was poaching foreign talent even back in the ’60s, Demy was brought stateside to make his first (and only) American film: Model Shop. It did not do well. Demy’s mainstream success came from French people breaking out into sudden song and dance, and Model Shop contained precisely none of those things. Instead, it was about a young man named George (Gary Lockwood) on the brink of physical and existential disaster. He soon loses his car to a couple of repo men, and he loses his freedom to a Vietnam draft notice that’s just arrived in the mail. And so George floats around La when he stumbles upon Lola (Anouk Aimée), a French model and the protagonist of

Trailers from Hell: Larry Karaszewski on Jacques Demy's Ode to 1968 Los Angeles, 'Model Shop'

Trailers from Hell: Larry Karaszewski on Jacques Demy's Ode to 1968 Los Angeles, 'Model Shop'
To Live and Shake and Die in La! kicks off this week at Trailers from Hell, with screenwriter Larry Karaszewski introducing Jacques Demy's first American production, "Model Shop."Shot a year after his homage to Hollywood musicals, "The Young Girls of Rochefort," "Model Shop" stars Gary Lockwood, just coming off of 2001: A Space Odyssey. But the real star of Model Shop is La itself; the film is a veritable time capsule of the city in the late sixties (Demy had wanted to title the film “Los Angeles-1968″). As Lockwood’s star-crossed lover, Anouk Aimée reprises her title role from Demy’s bittersweet romance, 1961′s Lola.
