Humphrey Bogart in a clip from classic film noir In a Lonely Place – video

20 May 2016 3:13 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Humphrey Bogart and Gloria Grahame burn up the screen in Nicholas Ray’s 1950 film noir, adapted from the novel by Dorothy B Hughes. Bogart plays a screenwriter who is suspected of murdering a young girl, and Grahame is his femme-fatale neighbour who can provide him with an alibi. A restored version of In a Lonely Place is out now on Blu-Ray (Criterion Collection)

Howard Hawks and Nicholas Ray’s Essential Cornerstones of American Cinema

18 May 2016 12:21 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

As a supplement to our Recommended Discs weekly feature, Peter Labuza regularly highlights notable recent home-video releases with expanded reviews. See this week’s selections below.

A woman departs a steamer in Argentina and soon finds herself in the middle of a love triangle between two pilots vying for her attention. They carry her off to a bar, then gamble between taking out the mail and a juicy steak date. As the loser Joe takes off into the night, the fog sets in. The music stops, the sounds of the plane motor crinkle above the jungle air. The mist proves too thick, and a fiery mess consumes the ground, but only the woman screams. There’s no time for tears, something the Brooklyn lass has yet to understand. “Who’s Joe?” becomes a denial of existential fear, and the music crowds the air once again. The man fades into memory out of necessity. »

Criterion Review: In a Lonely Place

16 May 2016 1:58 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★★Nicholas Ray's In a Lonely Place is the newest addition to the Criterion Collection, a magnificently dark noir thriller comprising one of Humphrey Bogart's signature roles. Bogart plays Dixon 'Dix' Steele, a grouchy, hot-tempered Hollywood screenwriter who finds himself the prime suspect in a murder case. The magnetic Gloria Grahame plays alongside Bogart as Laurel Gray, bringing depth to a role that in lesser hands could have played as mere foil to Bogart's volatile Dix.

Review: Nicholas Ray's "In A Lonely Place" (1950) Starring Humphrey Bogart And Gloria Grahame; Criterion Blu-ray Special Edition

12 May 2016 3:47 AM, PDT | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Anger Management Issues”

By Raymond Benson

A character makes an excuse for the bad behavior of Dixon Steele, a Hollywood screenwriter played by Humphrey Bogart, by saying, “He’s a writer—people like him can afford to be temperamental.”

Released in the same year as Billy Wilder’s acerbic film noir attack on Tinsel Town, Sunset Boulevard, and Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s similar assault on show business, All About Eve, Nicholas Ray’s In a Lonely Place was nowhere near as popular—but it was just as scathing. It may not have been a box office success, but the picture’s reputation has grown considerably over the decades, mainly because Bogart’s performance as a bitter, angry movie scribe ranks among his best onscreen personas. But it’s not pretty. The guy has anger management issues, the likes of which probably had not been seen in a mainstream film prior to the picture’s release. »

In a Lonely Place (Nicholas Ray)

When a gifted but washed-up screenwriter with a hair-trigger temper—Humphrey Bogart, in a revelatory, vulnerable performance—becomes the prime suspect in a brutal Tinseltown murder, the only person who can supply an alibi for him is a seductive neighbor (Gloria Grahame) with her own troubled past. The emotionally charged In a Lonely Place, freely adapted from a Dorothy B. Hughes thriller, is a brilliant, turbulent mix of suspenseful noir and devastating melodrama, »

The Chase (1946)

6 May 2016 7:26 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

An exercise in dizzy disorientation, this Cornell Woolrich crazy-house noir pulls the rug out from under us at least three times. You want delirium, you got it -- the secret words for today are "Obsessive" and "Perverse." Innocent Robert Cummings is no match for sicko psychos Peter Lorre and Steve Cochran. The Chase Blu-ray Kino Classics 1946 / B&W / 1:37 flat Academy / 86 min. / Street Date May 24, 2016 / available through Kino Lorber / 29.95 Starring Robert Cummings, Michèle Morgan, Steve Cochran, Peter Lorre, Lloyd Corrigan, Jack Holt, Don Wilson, Alexis Minotis, Nina Koschetz, Yolanda Lacca, James Westerfield, Shirley O'Hara.

In a Lonely Place

It's a different Bogart -- a character performance in a Nicholas Ray noir about distrust anxiety in romance.

Los Angeles Kills Itself: A Cinematic Look at Hollywood as Hell

3 March 2016 11:16 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

For those many aspiring artists who make the pilgrimage to Los Angeles in hopes of finding their silver screen dreams, the city can take on a magical and enticing air. More often than not, small town beauty queens and football stars hoping for fame shoot for the stars and land among the trash. As beautiful a city as it is, Hollywood is also a place where the strong eagerly use and discard the weak with a frightening frequency. Can’t take the pressure? Don’t fret. There is certainly no shortage of wide-eyed kids waiting to take your place.

In Knight of Cups, the latest film by Terrence Malick, Christian Bale stars as a Hollywood screenwriter drifting through the sights and sounds of contemporary Los Angeles. To mark the occasion, we’ve taken a look back at the finest films portraying the dark side of Hollywood — the broken hearts and crushed dreams. »

[Review] Ride Along 2

15 January 2016 6:53 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

We get it. Ice Cube is the stone-cold straight man and Kevin Hart is incapable of subtly. The first Ride Along was an occasionally fun romp; imperfect, but it knew what it was. As a sequel, Ride Along 2 follows that tried-and-true format by transplanting itself to an exotic location. Here our Atlanta-based heroes James Payton (Cube) and Ben Barber (Hart) are sent to Miami — cue a Pitbull song and a montage of beautiful women in bikinis on the beach. If you’re thinking, “Hey, that sounds like 22 Jump Street,” that’s where the sequel comparisons end.

As a consumer product made for the “Netflix and Chill” demographic verses an actual cinematic experience, Ride Along 2 offers more of the same with diminished returns. In Nicholas Ray’s In A Lonely Place one screenwriter insults another by calling him a “popcorn salesmen.” Here, all involved are less: they’ve created »

Everything Steven Soderbergh Watched and Read in 2015

6 January 2016 11:21 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Displaying a transparency that few filmmakers of his fame and / or caliber would even bother with, Steven Soderbergh has, for a couple of years, been keen on releasing lists of what he watched and read during the previous twelve months. If you’re at all interested in this sort of thing — and why not? what else are you even doing with your day? — the 2015 selection should be of strong interest, this being a time when he was fully enmeshed in the world of creating television.

He’s clearly observing the medium with a close eye, be it what’s on air or what his friends (specifically David Fincher and his stillborn projects) show him, and how that might relate to his apparent love of 48 Hours Mystery or approach to a comparatively light slate of cinematic assignments — specifically: it seems odd that the last time he watched Magic Mike Xxl, a »
