27 July 2016 1:47 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Though actors, writers, and directors often receive the lion’s share of the credit for the success of a film, there are plenty of people behind the scenes that do marvelous, unsung work. Take legendary Hollywood costume designer Orry-Kelly for instance, who put his signature on such films like “Casablanca,” “42nd Street,” “An American in Paris,” and more. The new documentary “Women He’s Undressed” explores the life and career of Orry-Kelly by mixing recreations of his life with testimonies from intimates and admirers in order to better understand one of the godfathers of glamour. Some of the interviewees include Jane FondaAngela LansburyLeonard Maltin, and more. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below featuring a discussion about Orry-Kelly’s work on Billy Wilder’s “Some Like It Hot.”

Doc Corner: 'Women He's Undressed' Reveals Hollywood Couture

26 July 2016 8:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Glenn here. Each Tuesday we bring you reviews and features on documentaries from theatres, festivals, and on demand.

Gillian Armstrong is nearly as prolific as a documentarian as she is a dramatic filmmaker. While the likes of her “Seven Years On” series (an Australian 7 Up), her Bob Dylan concert doc Hard to Handle, or the true crime murder mystery of an interior design queen in Unfolding Florence aren’t as well-known as her collaborations with Judy Davis, Cate Blanchett, Mel Gibson, and Winona Ryder, they are eclectic and passionate works nonetheless. As she said in her interview with Jose last year at Toronto, “there’s a different art to making documentaries” and unlike many other directors who split their time between mediums, her documentaries do feel distinctly unique from her other work and yet equally essential.

Her latest non-fiction work is Women He’s Undressed, a peek behind the velvet curtain at Orry-Kelly, »

13 July 2016 6:11 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Damien Chazelle is returning to the world of music following his break-out hit Whiplash. His Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone-led La La Land, which will world premiere as the opener of the Venice Film Festival, has been given its first stunning trailer. Set in Los Angeles, it follows a jazz pianist (Gosling) who falls for an aspiring actress (Stone).

As we can seen in the dialogue-free preview, featuring a song from the film, sparks will fly for the pair who previously exhibited strong onscreen chemistry in Gangster Squad and Crazy, Stupid, Love. The cast is rounded out by Whiplash scene-stealer J.K. Simmons, John Legend, Finn Wittrock, Sonoya Mizuno, and Rosemarie DeWitt.

La La Land is a surprising tribute to the golden age of American musicals, from An American in Paris by Vincent Minnelli to New York, New York by Martin Scorsese,” Venice festival director Alberto Barbera previously said. “It »

Damien Chazelle’s ‘La La Land’ Set to Open the 2016 Venice Film Festival

17 June 2016 4:12 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If summer movie season has you feeling burnt out, fear not, the promising fall slate is shaping up. The first confirmed festival premiere comes from the 73rd Venice International Film Festival as they’ve announced their opening night film: Damien Chazelle‘s highly-anticipated Whiplash follow-up La La Land. Led by Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, it will be the rare opener that actually plays in competition ahead of a release on December 2nd.

La La Land is a surprising tribute to the golden age of American musicals, from An American in Paris by Vincent Minnelli to New York, New York by Martin Scorsese,” festival director Alberto Barbera says. “It is a film that does not merely reinvent the musical genre, it gives it a brand new start. If Whiplash was the revelation of a new filmmaker, La La Land is his definitive, albeit precocious, consecration among the great directors of Hollywood’s new firmament. »

All the Colors Left With You: Grieving in Life and "The Courtship of Eddie's Father"

1 May 2016 7:28 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

On January 22nd of this year I lost someone very close to me. The someone I was closest to, in fact. She was (is) my best friend, my daughter. The love of my life a lot of people say, though this someone wasn’t actually a person. She was better—she was a dog. A nearly 19-year-old Silver Dapple Dachshund named Elizabeth Alaina Freeman, Libby for short. I got her when I was 11 and going through my Queen Elizabeth I phase. I was there when she was born, was the first person she saw when she opened her eyes and the first to hold her. As fate mercifully had it, I was also the last person she saw and the last one to hold her. She died in my arms while I was sleeping. I woke to find her looking at me, eyes unmoving.Last week I turned 30. It was »

NYC Weekend Watch: Frederick Wiseman, Jack Fisk, ‘Weekend’ & More

24 March 2016 6:22 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Metrograph

Frederick Wiseman‘s High School begins a week-long run.

“Welcome to Metrograph: A to Z” offers multiple titles this weekend, including Assayas‘ Boarding Gate, The Beguiled, and Nicolas Roeg‘s Bad Timing.

A 35mm print of Carol screens on Saturday night.

Cary Grant and Irene Dunne star in My Favorite Wife, playing this Sunday.

The Academy Awards are this weekend - but how do you actually go about winning one? Plus: some Oscar predictions.

Whether or not you believe they’re still relevant, the Oscars are undeniably the biggest event in the Hollywood calendar. I am fascinated by them, what intrigues me most is the general consensus that this process is a game of strategy and if you want to win, you have to know the rules. But actors and directors don’t have time to work this out for themselves, they’re far too busy and important. I however am not.

Therefore I have poured over lists of Oscar winners for more time than is healthy in order to determine exactly what it takes to win one of these much desired awards. I’m going to give you the tried and tested formulai for how to win Best Actress, Best Actor and Best Picture. »

Best Picture and Better Picture: Movies That Should Have Won the Oscar but Didn’t

19 February 2016 3:34 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 The best picture doesn’t always win Best Picture. Sometimes the best film of the year gets robbed. Cinelinx looks at the movies which should have won Best Picture but didn’t.

Whenever the Best Picture winner is announced at the Oscars, sometimes we say, “Yeah, that deserved to win,” but then again, sometimes we say, “Huh? Are they kidding me?!” There are a lot of backstage politics and extenuating factors in Hollywood that can determine which film wins the big trophy. The worthiest film doesn’t always take the statue home. Going back over the 88-year history of the Academy Awards, we look at which films didn’t really deserve to win and the ones which rightfully should have won.
