How Director Antoine Fuqua's Tough Grandma Helped Inspire 'The Magnificent Seven'

20 September 2016 1:37 PM, PDT | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

Filmmakers will look almost anywhere for inspiration, but for Magnificent Seven director Antoine Fuqua, inspiration came from a place very close to home--grandma's home.  For Fuqua, his love of Westerns and his desire to make one is very much tied to the relationship he had with his grandmother, who used classics like Shane and Duel in the Sun to keep her grandson from becoming the kind of villain she despised.  "She was just one of those little ladies from the South,...

[Locarno Review] Scarred Hearts

10 August 2016 1:47 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Beginning in 1937 — the opening credits take us through a series of period photos and alert us to expect something with a potentially greater scope than simply the biopic of one man — Scarred Hearts is still inspired by the life of one figure: writer and intellectual Max Blecher, in the case of this film reconfigured as Emanuel (Lucius Rus), suffering from bone tuberculosis and put in a hospital on the edge of the Black Sea. A 20-year-old man with his life ahead of him, there’s the belief within him that this is all to pass, though, as history will attest, that’s unfortunately not true.

Like another two-and-a-half-hour Romanian dry comedy about the medical process, Cristi Puiu’s The Death of Mr. Lazarescu, Scarred Hearts plays up the control doctors hold over us in a critical state for maximum absurdity, of course the joke of antiquated health care emphasized in director Radu Jude’s case. »

Lonely rangers: the dark side of westerns

6 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The early cowboy movies were built on a simple moral struggle between goodies and baddies. So why did they so quickly evolve into psychologically bleak depictions of damaged souls?

Among the rocks and dust of an Arizona canyon, a man and a woman want to kill each other. Each draws closer, gun in hand, and they take turns to fire, inflicting wounds. Yet between each shot, the desire they feel for one another overwhelms them. Here, love reveals itself as murderous, and murder proves loving. Mortally wounded, the woman crawls through the dust so they may die, stilled at last, in each other’s arms. The scene is over-the-top, it is preposterous, and yet in being so it is also exceedingly magnificent. From Duel in the Sun (1946), David O Selznick and King Vidor’s delirium-dream of a movie, this moment encapsulates the operatic astonishment of the postwar Hollywood western, with »

‘Silence’ Aiming For November Release; Watch Martin Scorsese Discuss His Love For Technicolor

5 April 2016 6:42 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

There aren’t many films we’re anticipating more than Martin Scorsese‘s priest drama Silence. An adaptation of Shûsaku Endô‘s novel, the story follows Andrew Garfield as Father Rodrigues, a 17th-century Portuguese Jesuit who travels to Japan with a fellow priest amid rumors that Rodrigues’ mentor (Liam Neeson) has abandoned the Church.

Once aiming for a Cannes debut, rumors suggest that likely won’t be happening, but a new report from Screen Daily suggests Paramount will release it this November, a fitting bow in the heat of awards season. Unlike Scorsese’s last film, The Wolf of Wall Street, the date means he won’t be so down to the wire in the editing room.

As we await the drama, Scorsese has also chimed in to celebrate 100 years of Technicolor, the motion picture process invented in 1916 and then later utilized for a great number of cinematic classics. In »

New Oscar Records. An Evolving List

14 January 2016 1:00 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Refresh your screen for updates as we add to the list. If you suspect you've seen a statistic worth shouting about, put it in the comments.

Records Broken This Year

Jennifer Jones (Duel in the Sun, age 27) vs Jennifer Lawrence (Joy, age 25)• Jennifer Lawrence (who is 25 years old) breaks Jennifer Jones's record of quickest actor to 4 nominations. Jones had held that record -- she accomplished 4 nominations by the age of 27 -- since 1947. But no more.

Carol becomes the Most Nominated Film in the modern expanded Best Picture field era to not receive an Oscar nomination for Best Picture. The previous record was a three way tie between The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (2011), Skyfall (2012) and Foxcatcher (2014) which each received 5 nominations but were not included in Best Picture. [Aside: The all time record holder, from back when there were only 5 Best Picture nominees and more room for this sort of "achievement" in not quite making it, is They Shoot Horses Don't They (1969) which received 9 nominations. Of these four other pictures, all but Foxcatcher won at least one Oscar. So we'll see on Carol.

2015 Specific Records

Tom Hardy and Domnhall Gleeson are the most ubiquitous faces from the Best Picture lineup. Each actor appears in two »
