Criterion Collection: The Innocents | Blu-ray Review

23 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Being that director Jack Clayton grew up with the misfortune of having no father figure, he grew up with a deep affinity for the Henry James novella he had read as a child called “The Turn of the Screw,” which features a pair of parentless siblings who endure not only the void left by their parents and their neglectful uncle, but the deaths of those most close to them in their governess Miss Jessel and their uncle’s valet, Peter Quint. Following the Academy attention getting success of his 1959 film Room at the Top, Clayton pursued the rights to “The Turn of the Screw” only to find that 20th Century Fox held them through the acquisition of William Archibald’s stage adaptation of the book, “The Innocents,” which he was happy to have his acquaintance Truman Capote adapt into a proper throwback southern gothic ghost story that subverted genre expectations »

A Ghost Story For Adults

By Raymond Benson

Under appreciated upon its original release in 1961, The Innocents is today considered one of the great film ghost stories. After all, it’s based on Henry James’ creepy The Turn of the Screw, a truly scary masterwork published in 1898. In the capable hands of Jack Clayton (fresh off his success with Room at the Top, which had been nominated for Best Picture and Best Director in 1959), the picture delivers a classic Gothic punch that is strange, beautiful, and, ultimately, powerfully disturbing. Faithful to the source material, the story is set in the Victorian era. The gorgeous and inimitable Deborah Kerr stars as a naive and, as it turns out, sexually repressed governess who is hired by an eccentric and secretive man (“The Uncle,” played by Michael Redgrave). She is to be a governess to his »

Offscreen Film Festival Brussels Welcomes Radley Metzger, And A Whole Lot More

2 March 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

This week, the seventh edition of the Offscreen Film Festival in Brussels will start, undoubtedly one of the best 'genre' festivals in Europe. And their line-up this year is very much yummie. Radley Metzger is one of the guests of honor this year, and he will be giving a masterclass on nude cinematography. Also, they screen just about every film of his you can quickly name. Score, Misty Beethoven, Lickerish Quartet, Pamela Mann, Camille 2000... they're all there. Who isn't there is Ken Russell, as he died in 2011, but his filmography gets the same treatment here. It's hard to think of a film of his that isn't in the programme. Examples are: Tommie, Altered States, Lisztomania, Women in Love... even Lair of the White...

4 February 2014 9:55 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Four months after the announcement that Kate Moss would be joining British Vogue's staff as the new Contributing Fashion Editor, the supermodel's first shoot has debuted in the March issue. Moss hand-picked Ukrainian-Canadian model Daria Werbowy and photographer partners Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott—who most recently worked with Kate for her Playboy spread—for an edgy retro rock 'n' roll-inspired spread titled Cause Célèbre. As you can see, the look seems like it could have come straight from Moss' own closet, consisting of a plunging Saint Laurent dress, Caroline Amato leather gloves, Pamela Mann fishnets, and a two-tone, bedhead hairstyle. For the cover, the »
