Roger Deakins recalls 'The Man Who Wasn't There' and film noir favorites

19 December 2014 12:17 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It seemed this year that if any artist was due for the retrospective treatment, it was "Unbroken" cinematographer Roger Deakins. While I of course did not address all of the 50-plus films he has shot throughout his illustrious career during a recent extended interview, I settled on a few in particular that I think represent a nice cross-section of his work. Each of them — "Nineteen Eighty-Four," "Sid and Nancy," "Barton Fink," "The Shawshank Redemption," "Kundun," "The Man Who Wasn't There" and "The Village" — will get their own space in the next few days. 2001 was an interesting year for Roger Deakins. With John Nash biopic "A Beautiful Mind" — the only time he's ever worked with director Ron Howard — he shot the year's Best Picture winner, while his on-going collaboration with the Coen brothers' yielded "The Man Who Wasn't There" and the chance to work on a cinematographer's dream: a film noir. »

18 December 2014 4:26 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Oscar-nominated filmmaker David Fincher plans to direct the pilot episode of “Living on Video,” which is the working title of his half-hour HBO project about music videos in the 1980s, TheWrap has learned.

Fincher will executive produce “Living on Video” with Cean Chaffin and Joshua Donen.

HBO declined to comment, while attempts to reach Donen proved unsuccessful.

Not many details are known about “Living on Video” other than the fact that it focuses on the crew members who worked in the early days of music videos, though casting is currently under way.

A group of roughly 50 protesters clashed with police Friday, blocking the intersection of La Brea Ave. and Sunset Blvd.  The protesters were demonstrating against police killings of unarmed black men in New York and Missouri. Photojournalist Bryan Hayes streamed part of the protests live, with a demonstrator telling Hayes police ordered them out of the street and on to the sidewalk.

15 Silly Things That Have Won Golden Globes

11 December 2014 3:50 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

No one would accuse the Hollywood Foreign Press Association of being a refined institution, but when you think about the kinds of movies, TV shows, actors, and actresses who've ended up with Golden Globes, it's actually staggering how the HFPA has gotten away with maintaining its image as a must-see event. Drunk people at the dais is, I guess, still a sufficient enough reason to tune in. Let's celebrate today's nominations with a fond look back at some silly things that have won Golden Globes. 1. "Green Card" (Best Motion Picture -- Comedy) What a classic. Nothing says "comedic wonderful good times" like Gerard Depardieu and Andie MacDowell mixing it up in an immigration romcom. Fun fact: My aunt saw this movie in Germany, noticed the reaction of the crowd, and was embarrassed on America's behalf. 2. Twiggy (Best Newcomer of the Year, Actress) I love Twiggy!

No Accidents in R: Struggle of the Homegrown Cinema, part II

24 November 2014 5:15 AM, PST | Hope for Film | See recent Hope for Film news »

Staying relevant. It is a fear actors, directors, content creators, and to be honest, most human beings grapple with constantly. The more than half-century year-old Sunset Boulevard exemplified this fear in the delusional Gloria Swanson. And while I’m sure this obsession is a random extraneous facet of the greatly evolved human consciousness, it may be spin-off on our desire to survive.

This wasn’t part of Birdman. This was Emma Stone actually telling Mk the truth.

If you build it they will come.” While that may have been true at one time, many have since ‘built’ and the audience has been spread thinly. We see the loss of audience at the Elks Theatre weekly. And while the theater hasn’t changed, I understand audiences’ needs have. It’s clear there are more and more forms of entertainment available instantly, and cost and convenience is absolutely the apogee of necessity in the realm of entertainment. »

The Stack: Canfield Talks Space Station 76, Animated Rick And Morty, Vintage William Castle, And More

21 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Welcome back to The Stack. This is the final episode before I kick off our Holiday Gift Guide this Tuesday November 25. This is also the beginning of a new, shorter format. But The Stack is still packed with home entertainment goodness. A favorite release is Space Station 76 (2014), directed by Jack Plotnick, whom you might remember from Rubber (2010) and Wrong (2012). Olive Films releases Fedora (1978), which many consider to be Billy Wilder's late career followup to Sunset Boulevard (1950). I also take a look at one of their back catalog titles, the nearly forgotten William Castle science fiction spy thriller Project X (1968). Lastly and quite excitedly, I tease the gift guide coverage by revealing one of this year's great TV Blu-ray box...
