How Tasmania became the gothic muse of Australian film and TV

23 November 2016 8:32 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

From The Kettering Incident to Rosehaven, the isolation and dark beauty of Australia’s island state is bringing resounding success to the screen

Tasmania is having a moment. Undeniably, the popularity of David Walsh’s Museum of Old and New Art has consolidated the state’s reputation as a cultural tourism destination. But right now something else is happening too: Tasmania is emerging as a star of film and television.

This year saw the debut of eight-part Foxtel/BBC Worldwide thriller The Kettering Incident in July, while new ABC comedy Rosehaven premiered in October. They are high profile, well-received shows which seem likely to go to a second season. Though poles apart genre-wise, both are set in small-town Tasmania and riff on notions of otherness and isolation while highlighting the dark beauty of the landscape.

Water Rackets: “Erin Brockovich”

19 July 2016 7:05 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Steven Soderbergh's Erin Brokovich (2000) is playing July 17 - August 16, 2016 on Mubi in the United Kingdom. “Erin Brockovich is perhaps the most forceful articulation of Soderbergh’s proclivity toward emphasizing character over other filmic concerns. Without sacrificing their causal role within the narrative, who characters are is often of greater interest than what they do—indeed, what they will do and accomplish is often a foregone conclusion… while Erin Brockovich may, thematically, be a film about responsibility, formally, Erin Brockovich is a movie about Erin Brockovich—and decidedly so.”— Andrew Patrick Nelson, in The Philosophy of Steven Soderbergh“I’m smart, I’m hardworking and I’m not leaving here without a job.”— Erin, Erin BrockovichErin Brockovich must win people over. As a single mother of three who wears short skirts and low-cut tops, she’s at the more preyed-upon end of a predatory spectrum—one whose social logic is built on first impressions. »

The In-Laws

28 June 2016 8:21 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

This Alan Arkin-Peter Falk show is finally being recognized as a comedy mini-masterpiece. Afraid of offending his daughter's future father-in-law, a dentist is sucked into a nightmare of crime and jeopardy, as a jolly Chinese airline whisks him away to a rendezvous with danger in a Latin American dictatorship. It's a gem of sustained mirth. The In-Laws Blu-ray The Criterion Collection 823 1979 / Color / 1:85 widescreen / 103 min. / available through The Criterion Collection / Street Date July 5, 2016 / 39.95 Starring Peter Falk, Alan Arkin, Richard Libertini, Nancy Dussault, Penny Peyser, Arlene Golonka, Michael Lembeck, Paul Lawrence Smith, Ed Begley Jr., James Hong, Barbara Dana, David Paymer.

Rollercoaster

18 June 2016 8:02 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

A mad extortionist is blowing up rollercoaster rides. Put-upon George Segal must stop him because we all know that the time, the tide and roller coasters wait for no man. Producer Jennings Lang's by-the-numbers suspense thriller is light on suspense and thrills, but the cast is good and the screenplay at least partly intelligent. And hey -- it's got a teenage Helen Hunt! Rollercoaster Blu-ray Shout! Factory 1977 / Color / 2:35 widescreen / 119 min. / Street Date June 21, 2016 / 19.99 Starring George Segal, Timothy Bottoms, Henry Fonda, Helen Hunt, Harry Guardino, Susan Strasberg, Craig Wasson, Robert Quarry, Quinn Redeker, Dick Wesson, Gary Franklin, Steve Guttenberg. Cinematography David M. Walsh Original Music Lalo Schifrin Written by Richard Levinson, William Link, Tommy Cook Produced by Jennings Lang Directed by James Goldstone

Jaws inspired plenty of rip-off movies about sharks, bears, killer whales and monster octopi threatening beaches. Since it wasn't safe to go back to the water, »

In addition to Film Heritage Foundation, established by Indian filmmaker Shivendra Singh Dungarpur, local organisers include the National Film Archive of India (Nfai) and Viacom18.

“The language of cinema is universal,” said Scorsese, announcing the workshop. “In a time of great divisions, conflicts, transformations, it’s really crucial to preserve and share our cultural patrimonies and to ensure that this universal language will speak to future generations around the world.”

The 10-day workshop, which will take place at Nfai’s headquarters in Pune, covers the technology and ethics involved in film preservation as India races to save its film heritage. “This is a unique »
