Jack And The Cuckoo-Clock Heart Blu-Ray Review

Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart Blu-Ray Review

There are few movies that are as wild, original, and filled with soul as Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart, and the only problem with that is that it’s going to make you think someone else directed it. (He didn’t.)

Adapted by Mathias Malzieu from his own bestselling novel and the gold-selling album by his band Dionysos, Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart is a magical story that feels like a new breed of myth, and it comes to you through brilliant animation.

Born on the coldest day in the history of the Earth, Jack’s heart is frozen solid. To save his life, midwife Madeleine grafts a tiny cuckoo clock into his chest to take its place. Everything will be fine, she tells him, so long as he follows three rules in order to keep things running smooth – He can never touch the clock’s workings, »

The film revolves around a Tsarist soldier, awaiting his fate in a Bolsheviks-run prison camp, who recalls a short, passionate affair he once had with a beautiful and enigmatic married woman.

It is an adaptation of a 1927 novel by celebrated Nobel Prize-winning Russian novelist Ivan Bunin, written while he was living in exile in Paris.

Almodóvar Shoots Latest Film in Lyon, Shares Prize with Frank Capra

19 October 2014 5:44 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lyon – What will be Pedro Almódovar’s next film? Answer: It’s a remake of a French classic, 1895’s “Employees Leaving the Lumière Factory,” and Almódovar shot it Saturday in France’s Lyon.

Credited as the first mass audience movie ever made, “Employees,” admitedly, is just some 40-seconds long, the remake a homage to the Festival sited at the birthplace of film as a popular art and industry. Almodóvar’s remake came one day before Lyon’s closing ceremony, marked by a gala screening of “All About My Mother.” The Lumiere Festival is non-competitive. But a group of Lyon high-school students award a best film prize which this year was shared by Frank Capra’s “It’s a Wonderful Life” and Pedro Almodóvar’s “High Heels.”

“I’ve been in Lyon since Thursday and every hour have had marvellous surprises. But never in my wildest dreams did I imagine sharing »

Pedro Almodovar Feted As Thierry Frémaux’s Lumière Fest Nears Close

18 October 2014 8:07 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The Lumière Festival was created by Cannes chief Thierry Frémaux and Lumière Institute President Bertrand Tavernier six years ago here in Lyon, the birthplace of cinema. As the week-long event that wraps tomorrow has grown, it has become a favorite stop on the calendar for filmmakers, film buffs and friends of Frémaux to attend. It includes restorations, masterclasses and retrospectives, but no competition. And it’s not just art-house either — tonight’s program includes an Alien marathon presented by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and a screening of Die Hard with John McTiernan hosting. Last year’s Prix Lumière winner, Quentin Tarantino, spent several days soaking up the scene here in 2013. This year’s recipient of the Lumière Prize, which has previously also gone to Milos Forman, Gérard Depardieu, Ken Loach and Clint Eastwood, was Oscar-winning Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodovar.

On Friday night, a two-and-a-half hour tribute to Almodovar concluded with a rousing »

Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!

Written and directed by Pedro Almodóvar

Spain, 1989

No matter if his protagonists are deranged or distraught, happy or sad, or if his stories are light or dark, comedic or tragic, the films of Pedro Almodóvar are usually at the very least enjoyable. Even at their most disturbing, there is something inescapably jubilant about his lavish use of color, his vibrant characters, and his unceasing passion for life and filmmaking. And when he aims to make something purely amusing, the results can be astonishing. It is for all of these reasons that Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!, surprisingly the first Almodóvar film released by the Criterion Collection, is such a treat.

In this 1989 feature, made just after Almodóvar’s award-winning breakthrough Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, Victoria Abril stars as junkie porn star turned respectable leading lady Marina Osorio, the object »

Antonio Banderas and Victoria Abril get to know each other in Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!

The rambunctious 1990 dark comedy Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! is Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar’s (Broken Embraces) colorful and controversial tribute to the pleasures and perils of Stockholm syndrome.

The film stars Antonio Banderas (Haywire) as an unbalanced but alluring former mental patient and Victoria Abril (Walking Vengeance) as the B-movie and porn star he takes prisoner in the hopes of convincing her to marry him.

A highly unconventional romance that came on the spike heels of Almodóvar’s international sensation Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, this is a splashy, sexy central work in the career of one of the international cinema’s most beloved and provocative auteurs, radiantly shot by the director’s great cinematographer José Luis Alcaine »
