Remembering Cat People Star Simon on 10th Anniversary of Her Death (Fully Revised/Updated Part I)

19 February 2015 7:53 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Simone Simon: Remembering the 'Cat People' and 'La Bête Humaine' star (photo: Simone Simon 'Cat People' publicity) Pert, pretty, pouty, and fiery-tempered Simone Simon – who died at age 94 ten years ago, on Feb. 22, 2005 – is best known for her starring role in Jacques Tourneur's cult horror movie classic Cat People (1942). Those aware of the existence of film industries outside Hollywood will also remember Simon for her button-nosed femme fatale in Jean Renoir's French film noir La Bête Humaine (1938).[1] In fact, long before Brigitte Bardot, Annette Stroyberg, Mamie Van Doren, Tuesday Weld, Ann-Margret, and Barbarella's Jane Fonda became known as cinema's Sex Kittens, Simone Simon exuded feline charm – with a tad of puppy dog wistfulness – in a film career that spanned two continents and a quarter of a century. From the early '30s to the mid-'50s, she seduced men young and old on both »

Get 'Up' on Low City: Watch the exclusive premiere of 'Race Up Race Down'

18 February 2015 12:02 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Low City is the combination of producer Abe Seiferth and composer/musician Jeremy Turner and their very talented friends. This may not mean much up front, until you consider Seiferth has been behind the decks for bands like Yeasayer and Reggie Watts; Turner has performed with Arcade Fire, New York's Metropolitan Opera and David Byrne; and their pals are in Bon Iver and Dirty Projectors. I'm in love with Low City's energizing song "Race Up Race Down" and today we premiere the  music video by director Dean Winkler (Laurie Anderson, Philip Glass, Nam June Paik), who describes it as "a visual meditation on global warming." The band's aesthetic "is inspired by the retro-futurism of films like 'Blade Runner,' and Fritz Lang's 'Metropolis'"so maybe that's why I feel like I've been on a trip to space. »

Indie Spotlight: Exclusive Q&A with Dynamite: A Cautionary Tale Director Tate Steinsiek

4 February 2015 4:16 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

“You’re carrying around some old man on your shoulders. Some demon’s got you deep in its clutches. He’ll follow you to the end.” For Max Bornstein, the end could come prematurely, as his heroin addiction, withholding of secrets from his family, and illegal dealings within the pornography industry take a terrible toll on his body and mind in Dynamite: A Cautionary Tale.

Set in 1970’s-era New York City, Dynamite: A Cautionary Tale is based on a true story. With production successfully wrapped on the film, and an Indiegogo campaign recently launched to aid in the post-production process, we caught up with director Tate Steinsiek to discuss being drawn to Max’s real life story, shooting a period piece during the winter in New York City, transitioning from makeup effects work to the director’s chair, and much more.

Thanks for taking the time to talk with us! »

Cinematographers pick the best-shot films of all time

4 February 2015 12:31 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Stumbling across that list of best-edited films yesterday had me assuming that there might be other nuggets like that out there, and sure enough, there is American Cinematographer's poll of the American Society of Cinematographers membership for the best-shot films ever, which I do recall hearing about at the time. But they did things a little differently. Basically, in 1998, cinematographers were asked for their top picks in two eras: films from 1894-1949 (or the dawn of cinema through the classic era), and then 1950-1997, for a top 50 in each case. Then they followed up 10 years later with another poll focused on the films between 1998 and 2008. Unlike the editors' list, though, ties run absolutely rampant here and allow for way more than 50 films in each era to be cited. I'd love to see what these lists would look like combined, however. I imagine "Citizen Kane," which was on top of the 1894-1949 list, »

Blu-ray Review: 'Metropolis'

20 January 2015 12:38 PM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★★ During the making of Metropolis (1927) Germany was caught in a tundra of political restructure and cinematic prosperity. Beneath the cindered waste cast aside by the First World War was a fatherland set for reform by the Weimar Republic and a film industry set to take the world stage. The so-called 'ethic of change' was in the air and the country's cultural isolation was dwindling. With the realities of war being all too real, the Expressionist movement was en vogue and German auteurs were at the forefront of an artistic uprising. The likes of Robert Weine and Fritz Lang were paving a macabre, fantastical path that would reshape the forms of storytelling. Deep in metaphor, heaped in rhetoric.
