Tribeca Film Review: ‘Ballet 422’

20 April 2014 3:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Director Jody Lee Lipes delivers an exhilarating third feature with “Ballet 422,” tracing the two-month creation of a new work by New York City Ballet dancer/choreographer Justin Peck. Sampling various stages of the process from initial conception through rehearsals to premiere performance, the documentary moves with the same fluidity that characterizes Peck’s choreography. Himself a noted cinematographer, Lipes captures the dancers, musicians, costumers and lighting designers from a variety of angles within the larger canvas, always suggesting kinetic movement continuing beyond the frame. A delight for balletophiles, the film reps a beautifully crafted entree into the intricacies of collective endeavor.

Lipes makes films about artists at work (“Brock Enright: Good Times Will Never Be the Same,” “NY Export: Opus Jazz,”), and “Ballet 422” focuses on the 25-year-old Peck as he conceives and shapes his third choreographed piece for Nycb, “Paz de la Jolla.” Expectations run high, given the »

Watch: Martin Scorsese Talks Characters & Directors Who Took Bold Risks

8 April 2014 9:28 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Martin Scorsese knows a thing or two about taking risks—there aren't many 71-year-old directors who stake their reputation on 3-hour depictions of orgiastic financial crime, or on similarly lengthy children's films about the earliest days of cinema and the internal politics of large train stations. But Marty does, so he seems a good person to ask about risk-taking in cinema, which is exactly what he does in this series of videos, dissecting briefly seven of his favourite risky directing decisions, from the very well-known—the risks Orson Welles took making “Citizen Kane”—and Scorsese's own well-established favourites, including the startling brilliance of Powell and Pressburger's “The Red Shoes,” a film whose directors Scorsese has spent much of his career boosting. But Scorsese also takes in lesser-known names. William Friese-Greene, for one, is not a name on many people's lips, but Scorsese as the consummate cinema historian knows all »

Movie Poster of the Week: F.W. Murnau’s “Tabu” and the Posters of Boris Streimann

28 March 2014 9:13 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Above: 1978 re-release poster for Tabu (F.W. Murnau, USA, 1931)

I only recently came across the posters of German artist Boris Streimann (1908-1984)—who was known to also sign his work as B. Namir—and was immediately struck by both the dynamism and the color of his work. The author of hundreds, if not thousands, of posters from the late 20s through the late 60s, Streimann loved diagonals. All of the posters I have selected— the best of his work that I could find—work off a strong diagonal line, with even his varied and very inventive title treatments (which could have been the work of another designer) often placed on an angle. On top of the sheer energy and movement of his posters, his use of color is extraordinary: brash and expressionistic like his brushwork. I especially love the multi-colored accordion in Port of Freedom, the loin cloth in Tabu, and »

Martin Scorsese's Top 10 Criterion Films

28 February 2014 8:26 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Criterion Collection has just released a new filmmaker top ten and this time it's Martin Scorsese getting the honors and he has quite a lot to say about each. The list includes obvious titles such as The Red Shoes, 8 1/2, The Leopard, Ashes and Diamonds and others as they were all on his list of Top 12 Films of All-Time from back in 2012. Nevertheless, it remains fascinating to read his words and reasoning. For example, I find it interesting to see him placing Roberto Rossellini's Paisan at #1. So often Rome Open City is the most talked about of Rossellini's fabulous War Trilogy (read my review) and so infrequently you hear about Paisan or Germany Year Zero, the latter of which is an absolute stunner. I've never sen Jean Renoir's The River or Francesco Rosi's Salvatore Giuliano, but the rest I've viewed. I'm not a huge fan of The Leopard, »

English Heritage honours London flat that was base for Powell and Pressburger

17 February 2014 4:31 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

British film duo Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's film company, the Archers, produced classics including A Matter of Life and Death and The Red Shoes

Martin Scorsese: why I restored Colonel Blimp

In the dog days of the second world war, the heart of British cinema could be found inside a three-room flat off the Marylebone Road in London. This, from 1942-1947, was the headquarters of film-makers Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, and the production office for such pictures as A Matter of Life and Death, The Red Shoes and The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp. In the event of air raids, the office came equipped with a set of camp beds.

Now the flat at Dorset House has been commemorated with an English Heritage blue plaque, honouring the work of Powell and Pressburger's film company, the Archers. Attending the unveiling were Powell's widow, the Oscar-winning American editor Thelma Schoonmaker, »

Martin Scorsese hails Powell and Pressburger at blue plaque unveiling

Wolf of Wall Street director pays tribute to 'extraordinary' work of British film-making greats honoured by English Heritage

Martin Scorsese paid tribute to the British film-making greats Powell and Pressburger as he helped to unveil a plaque in their honour.

Following his visit to the Bafta awards, the film director attended a ceremony on Monday unveiling the English Heritage blue plaque on the duo's London office.

Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger were behind some of the most celebrated British films of their era such as The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp, Black Narcissus, The Red Shoes and A Matter of Life and Death.

The plaque has been placed outside the office at Dorset House in Gloucester Place, Marylebone, which served as a base for their production company, The Archers, from 1942 to 1947.

In keeping with the austerity of those days, their office was sparsely decorated, with camp beds in case of air-raid warnings, »

Channel 4's Big Ballet shows that this is an art form that should be open to all | Deborah Orr

7 February 2014 4:07 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Dance can improve the health and happiness of people of all body shapes – but too often those who don't conform to the professional ideal are shut out, and that's a great shame

There is, I think, a very serious point at the heart of Channel 4's new three-part reality show, Big Ballet. That point is not about being fat or being thin. It's about differences in gender attitudes to work and leisure that go back centuries. Not that any of this is intentional or explicit in the show, which, if last Thursday's opening episode is anything to go by, follows the formula of an established contemporary genre. The contention of the show's presenter, the former Royal Ballet principal dancer Wayne Sleep, is simply that anyone and everyone should have access to classical ballet as a means of enjoyment and exercise, however they look. He's right. Why not?

The reason why not is complex. »

‘Wolf of Wall Street’ Editor on Scorsese and that Infamous Candle Sex Scene

7 January 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Scrambling to get “The Wolf of Wall Street” ready for awards season, Martin Scorsese leaned on the nimble touch of longtime editor Thelma Schoonmaker.

At 73, Schoonmaker has been an essential cog in the director’s moviemaking machine for more than three decades, winning the Oscar for editing on “Raging Bull,” “The Aviator” and “The Departed.” “Wolf” marks Schoonmaker’s 19th collaboration with Scorsese (and the filmmaker’s fifth with Leonardo DiCaprio) and presented a different set of challenges.

The shooting script, based on the memoirs of Jordan Belfort, a corrupt stockbroker, was already 162 pages long. And Scorsese stretched the story further when he asked his actors to freely improvise, resulting in reels of footage that resembled a documentary. The first cut of the film ran four hours.

Even though there was some talk about releasing “Wolf” in two parts, the real solution was to continue trimming throughout the fall. A »
