Reinhold Heil details his progression from Rock Music to Television and Film.

16 January 2015 4:04 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Reinhold Heil stood at the precipice of an evolving Berlin soundscape. Him and his fellow singers and musicians formed what is now referred to as the New German Wave (working with the likes of Nina Hagen and the band Spliff). Toted as one of the best keyboardist in Europe, Heil has taken his multi-instrumental talents to film, lending his hand to great titles like Run Lola Run, Cloud Atlas, and now the Syfy series Helix. Garret and I collaborated to dig deeper into the Golden Globe nominated composer's time behind the scenes.  

 

 

Garrett: What was it like being a successful writer and performer in a rock band in Germany during the 70’s and 80’s? How did it feel to be at the forefront of a rapidly changing musical landscape? 

 

I think I didn’t appreciate it enough at the time. Sometimes a city becomes the center for development in rock or pop music. »

Watch: Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski Give 100 Minute-Long Interview

15 January 2015 5:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

When Cloud Atlas, my favorite movie of 2012 was released, I was given the amazing opportunity to talk to the directors. That meant Tom Tykwer, Andy and Lana Wachowski. Tykwer is great but talking to the Wachowski’s was the unique thrill. The once reclusive filmmaking team behind The Matrix were finally speaking to the press […]

The Conversation: Drew Morton and Landon Palmer discuss ‘Run Lola Run’

10 January 2015 9:17 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Conversation is a new feature at Sound on Sight bringing together Drew Morton and Landon Palmer in a passionate debate about cinema new and old. For their inaugural piece, they will discuss Tom Tykwer’s film, Run Lola Run (1999).

Landon’s Take

Amongst the many films included in 1999’s “year that changed movies,” Tom Tykwer’s Run Lola Run seems an essential text. Fifteen years ago, the film blew through national and arthouse borders, presenting an exhilarating image of an approach to filmmaking free from formal restraint or linear narrative logic. An engrossing exercise in style, Tykwer’s breakthrough film seemed to simultaneously beat Hollywood at its own game of fast-paced entertainment, integrate music video aesthetics harmoniously into the machinations of feature filmmaking, and present an art film thoroughly interested in film as an art form looking toward the 21st century, free from the modernist concerns that previously united festival-friendly European exports. »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #38. Tom Tykwer’s A Hologram for the King

8 January 2015 6:30 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

A Hologram for the King

Director: Tom Tykwer// Writer: Tom Tykwer

Primarily known for his famed 1998 title Run, Lola Run, which shot actress Franka Potente into international stardom, German director Tom Tykwer’s been involved with a variety of international co-productions since, each seeming to find a minor cult following, such as Perfume: The Story of a Murderer (2006), The International (2009), and most infamously, Cloud Atlas (2012), which he co-directed with Andy and Lana Wachowski (however, we were most impressed with his less discussed return to Germany with 2010’s well performed Three). Now, Tykwer’s adapated David Eggar’s (screenwriter for Away We Go and Where the Wild Things Are) novel, A Hologram for a King, a political allegory set in an up-and-coming Saudi Arabian city. The comedy-drama tells the story of an American businessman who makes a last-ditch attempt to stave off bankruptcy and finally accomplish something big. He wants to »
