Christopher’s Top 10 Trailers of 2011

30 December 2011 3:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: I celebrate all levels of trailers and hopefully this column will satisfactorily give you a baseline of what beta wave I’m operating on, because what better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? Some of the best authors will tell you that writing a short story is a lot harder than writing a long one, that you have to weigh every sentence. What better medium to see how this theory plays itself out beyond that than with movie trailers? I'll get this out of the way now: Harry Potter is not on this list. I only mention this as I was excoriated back in »

For two weeks every year, legions of racing fans descend upon the Isle to watch as the world's best motorcycle racers chase their dream of becoming 'King of the Mountain' by gaining victory in what is regarded as one of the most prestigious - and dangerous - races in the sport, and its this quest for glory which is the subject of acclaimed commercials director Richard De Aragues' first feature - the documentary TT3D: Closer to the Edge.

Mark Kermode's DVD round-up

26 November 2011 4:06 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Tt: Closer to the Edge; Sarah's Key; A Separation; Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon

News that Asif Kapadia's brilliant Formula One documentary Senna has somehow failed to make the shortlist for the best documentary category at the forthcoming Oscars should come as no surprise to anyone au fait with the ludicrous irrelevance of the Academy Awards. These are, after all, the same awards that deemed Werner Herzog's epochal Grizzly Man unworthy of a nomination in the same category a few years ago on the most specious of technicalities. The fact that this foolhardy oversight should have occurred in a year in which the UK has produced not one but two fabulously insightful portraits of the need-for-speed industry somehow makes the error all the more laughable. Let us merely hope that at the Baftas there is due recognition both for Senna and its nail-biting motorcycling counterpart, Tt: Closer to the Edge (2011, Entertainment One, »

DVD Review: Tt – Closer to the Edge

26 November 2011 7:02 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

TT3D: Closer To The Edge

Stars: Guy Marting, John McGuinness, Ian Hutchinson, Conor Cummins | Directed by Richard De Aragues

Every motorbike enthusiast knows the Tt – it’s the world’s most dangerous race, a mountain course which has claimed 231 lives in its 103 year history.  For the rest of us The Isle Of Man’s Annual Superbike Death Race is something that always been on the TV at around 2am on EuroSport.  For the racers involved it’s a way of life – something that the participants spend the rest of the year preparing for and 100% of their lives dreaming about.

We follow Guy Martin, a mechanic by day but a superbike racer in his spare time as in his attempt to win his first Tt.  So far, he’s had eight podium places but no wins.

Guy’s a fantastic character.  He talks about as fast as he races – sentences leaving »

Movie Review - TT3D: Closer to the Edge (2011)

10 May 2011 10:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

TT3D: Closer to the Edge, 2011.

Directed by Richard De Aragues.

Narrated by Jared Leto.

Synopsis:

A documentary about the Isle of Man's famed Tt motorcycle race.

For those that are unfamiliar with the Isle of Man and its world famous Tt races let me assure you it’s thrilling, frightening and very dangerous. The small Isle sits in the middle of the Irish Sea and is home to around 80,000 Manxmen on an average day, but swells to almost double that figure for a fortnight in early summer. The Tt is the worlds most famous motorcycle road race and takes place over a 38 mile circuit that snakes through towns and villages, passes usually quiet country pubs and across the top of several mountains. Unlike your average racing there are no run off areas, no safety barriers and no mercy for anyone who dares to take the challenging course too lightly. Straw »

Two New Clips from TT3D: Closer to the Edge

23 April 2011 1:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Two documentaries which we implore you to watch this year have to be Senna and TT3D: Closer to the Edge. Both movies do feature motor-sport as a core area of the movie but as you’ll see when you watch them, neither are really about the sport but the people who take part in them.

By vividly recounting the Tt’s legendary rivalries and the Isle of Man’s unique road racing history, this 3D feature documentary will discover why modern Tt riders still risk their lives to win the world’s most dangerous race. The Isle of Man Tourist Trophy is the greatest motorcycle road race in the world, the ultimate challenge for rider and machine. It has always called for a commitment far beyond any other racing event, and many have made the ultimate sacrifice in their quest for victory. A story about freedom of choice, the »

This week's new films

22 April 2011 4:06 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Arthur (12A)

(Jason Winer, 2011, Us) Russell Brand, Helen Mirren, Greta Gerwig, Jennifer Garner, Luis Guzmán. 110 mins

You can see what they were thinking: "it worked for one difficult-to-market English comic, so let's try it again". But somewhere between the moon and New York City this romcom seems to have lost some of its spirit and spontaneity. There are some snappy lines and funny moments, but Brand's overprivileged wastrel is nowhere near as cuddly as Dudley Moore's was – or as convincingly drunk. Sometimes, hair of the dog isn't the answer.

How I Ended This Summer (12A)

(Aleksei Popogrebsky, 2010, Rus) Grigory Dobrygin, Sergei Puskepalis. 130 mins

Spare and distinctive two-hander set in remote Arctic Russia, where the endless daylight, monotonous work, some terrible news and a touch of radiation exacerbate generational differences to deadly levels.

Pina (U)

(Wim Wenders, 2011, Ger/Fra/UK) 104 mins

Exclusive Interview with TT3D Director Richard de Aragues and Racing Champ Ian Hutchinson

22 April 2011 3:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Commercials director Richard de Aragues has made a substantial cinematic mark with the thrilling documentary TT3D: Closer to the Edge (in cinemas now).

We talked to the filmmaker recently (alongside Ian Hutchinson, who managed the previously unprecedented feat of winning the five solo races in last year’s Tt) about the use of 3D to tell the story, and how the racers felt seeing their lives up close and personal.

If you missed our interview with Guy Martin yesterday, you can also check that out here.

Synopsis: TT3D: Closer to the Edge is a film about the Tt, the world-famous motorcycle race that takes place on the Isle of Man every year. Racing along public roads on bikes just inches apart – with speeds hitting 200mph – drama, tension and tragedy all combine to thrill the audience and tell a very moving human story.

TT3D: Closer To The Edge Review

20 April 2011 9:23 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

If you’ve ever wondered what the appeal of riding is, no matter how we bikers try in vain to convert you to two wheels from four, Richard De Aragues’s new documentary film is an excellent place to start. Ok, it’s the extreme version of riding, but it absolutely hammers the message across in the bluntest and rawest of terms.

TT3D: Closer To The Edge is an exhilarating and heart-stopping adrenaline rush full of big ballsy biking, which like the race magic the petrol-head ‘gladiators’ cherish, draws you in and injects you with the Tt lunacy drug. And from some of the people present at our screening, attended by two of the riders in the film, Ian ‘Hutchy’ Hutchinson and John ‘Sheep Skin’ McGuinness, you don’t have to ride to begin to understand the passion of dicing with death – and the biking bug. With the utterly entertaining Elvis-and-Wolverine cross, »
