Patrick Dempsey, Jay Leno Weigh in on Paul Newman in Racing Documentary

17 April 2015 1:37 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Racers and car enthusiasts rolled over to the charity screening of “Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman” at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood.

The film — preceded by a red carpet and followed by an after-party, both held at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel — celebrated actor Paul Newman’s passion for racing with archived footage of the late actor and his wife, Joanne Woodward, who remained married until Newman’s death in 2008.

Director and producer Adam Carolla started making the film about two years ago. “It was just a story that I knew people didn’t know, and I wanted people to know it,” he said. Carolla talked to Bob Sharp, whose racing team Newman drove for from the mid ’70s until the ’90s, and together the two took a trip to Newman’s home track, Lime Rock Park in Salisbury, Connecticut, where the concept for the documentary took form. »

2015 Cannes Film Festival Official Poster Pays Tribute to Ingrid Bergman

23 March 2015 10:10 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The choice to pay tribute to Ingrid Bergman on the 2015 Cannes Film Festival poster is no surprise as she's been an icon in world cinema for ages, but I can't say I am particularly moved by Herve Chigioni's design here, using an image taken by David Seymour and collaborating with his graphic designer Gilles Frappier. It just looks rather plain to me, especially compared to last year's, which Chigioni was also behind, featuring Marcello Mastroianni. The image definitely has class, but it just doesn't quite pop for me the same as so many others have recently. On top of the 2014 poster featuring Mastroianni, just check out 2013's poster featuring Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman, 2012's poster featuring Marilyn Monroe and 2011's featuring Faye Dunaway. In addition to the poster, Chigioni produced an animated film based on the visual, featuring a remix of the Festival's theme music, "The Carnival of the Animals" by Camille Saint-Saens, »

Five Unmissable Buñuel Classics Tonight on TCM

26 January 2015 5:24 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Luis Buñuel movies on TCM tonight (photo: Catherine Deneuve in 'Belle de Jour') The city of Paris and iconoclastic writer-director Luis Buñuel are Turner Classic Movies' themes today and later this evening. TCM's focus on Luis Buñuel is particularly welcome, as he remains one of the most daring and most challenging filmmakers since the invention of film. Luis Buñuel is so remarkable, in fact, that you won't find any Hollywood hipster paying homage to him in his/her movies. Nor will you hear his name mentioned at the Academy Awards – no matter the Academy in question. And rest assured that most film critics working today have never even heard of him, let alone seen any of his movies. So, nowadays Luis Buñuel is un-hip, un-cool, and unfashionable. He's also unquestionably brilliant. These days everyone is worried about freedom of expression. The clash of civilizations. The West vs. The Other. »

Beauty vs Beast: Legend In Blue Jeans

26 January 2015 8:34 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jason from Mnpp here, eyeing the white-out weather outside the window of my office as I write this to you from New York City - everybody stay safe on the East Coast over the next couple of days! It's apparantly gonna be a biggun, this storm. I know, here, I'll give you something to keep you warm - Paul Newman!

It's the 90th anniversary of Paul Newman's birth today. A few years back I'd have wagered he'd still be around to celebrate this one with us - he retained his youthful glimmer right up til the end - but it wasn't to be. His death was one that hit me hard -- he was "The Legend" of my youth, still going strong, still beautiful and affecting. But hey his lifetime love the great Joanne Woodward is still around, so let's all send our happy movie memory vibes her way. »
