Conversation with John Michael McDonagh, Brendan Gleeson, Chris O'Dowd and Joyce Carol Oates about Calvary

After Kelly Reilly came three Calvary men - John Michael McDonagh, Brendan Gleeson and Chris O'Dowd. With McDonagh, I voyage through his many literary references, from Samuel Beckett to Herman Melville, from Albert Camus to James Joyce, and from Philip K. Dick to David Gates' Jernigan. James Cagney's Shanghai Lil with Busby Berkeley's choreography in Footlight Parade reveals Angels With Dirty Faces as another influence.

Peggy Siegal used her magic to snare O'Dowd, who is starring with James Franco on Broadway in John Steinbeck's Of Mice And Men with Leighton Meester and Jim Norton, directed by Anna D. Shapiro. Joyce Carol Oates, who sat next to me during lunch, elegantly sums up Calvary.

The Definitive Movie Musicals: 40-31

4 May 2014 9:14 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Part of the list provides a few Best Picture nominees, a number of Oscar winners, and a childhood favorite that still pops up now and again. In reality, this list could be half-full of music documentaries, but for that reason, I stayed away from them. Plus, I did my best to include only films that really are musicals in every sense of the word. Plenty of films have lots of musical components, but only true musicals have performances in the film that truly drive the story forward. The songs in movie musicals have a purpose, if there could be a true definition.

40. Coal Miner’s Daughter (1980)

Directed by Michael Apted

Signature Song: “Coal Miner’s Daughter”

Michael Apted certainly has a dicey filmography, this probably being his best: a biographical  piece featuring a breakout adult role from Sissy Spacek, winning her the Oscar for Best Actress. »
