A Journey Through the Eclipse Series: Alexander Korda’s Rembrandt

11 July 2011 12:00 PM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

This coming Friday, July 15, marks the birthday of the greatest of all Dutch painters, Rembrandt van Rijn. Born 505 years ago, I figured now was as suitable an occasion as I’d ever have to review Rembrandt, this fine biopic from 1936 starring Charles Laughton, part of Eclipse Series 16: Alexander Korda’s Private Lives.

Korda is one of the most influential and dynamic figures in the history of UK cinema, founder of London Films and the first man ever granted knighthood for his work in the English film industry. Along with his brothers Zoltan and Vincent, he played a major part in creating some of the most fondly remembered British films of the 1930s, 40s and 50s, including The Scarlet Pimpernel, The Four Feathers, That Hamilton Woman, The Thief of Bagdad, The Third Man and Laurence Olivier’s version of Richard III.

As anyone who’s paid even the slightest attention »

What I Watched, What You Watched: Installment #80

13 February 2011 8:19 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Well, I've finally done it, I've seen all of the Oscar Best Picture winners. But I've also updated my personal list of "Must Watch Movies" and I still have 171 movies to go. This is a list I've compiled using the AFI Top 100 American Movies, Roger Ebert's Greatest Movies list, Oscar Best Picture winners, Tiff's Essential 100 Movies and several incarnations of the IMDb Top 250.

On Friday I actually updated the list, adding the latest IMDb Top 250 to my previous list and now have a total of 294 films that have at one time or another been on IMDb's Top 250 and actually have two new films I need to watch that weren't on there previously -- The Celebration (1998) and Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind (1984). Ebert has also been updating his list of greatest movies and I had to add a few there as well.

Overall it makes for a list »
