30 August 2015 10:51 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Todd Garbarini

Elia Kazan’s 1960 film Wild River, which stars Montgomery Clift, Lee Remick, Joan Van Fleet, and is Bruce Dern’s debut film, celebrates its 55th anniversary this year. The Royale Laemmle Theater in Los Angeles will be holding a special one-night-only showing of the 110-minute film on Thursday, September 17th, 2015 at 7:30 pm. Actor Bruce Dern is scheduled to appear at the screening and is due to partake in a Q & A and discussion on the making of the film.

From the press release:

Wild River (1960), set in Depression-era America, tells a provocative story of the conflict between an agent from the Tennessee Valley Authority and a proud, defiant older woman who refuses to sell her land in order to make way for a much needed dam. Oscar-nominated actors Montgomery Clift and Lee Remick star, and Oscar-winning actress Jo Van Fleet (only 40 at the time she made the film) plays the stubborn, »

Exclusive Trailer For Listen To Me Marlon

28 August 2015 8:13 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

An acting titan, man of gargantuan appetites and island-owning maverick, it’ll take more than the umpteen tomes written about him to unmask the real Marlon Brando. Fortunately, there’s a new documentary to help with that. Listen To Me Marlon is a Brando-led trail that, via thus-far unheard audio tapes, leads the viewer through the mind of the great man. The film’s new trailer is online and viewable below.British director Stevan Riley, the man behind West Indies cricket doc Fire In Babylon and 007 history Everything Or Nothing, has used Brando’s own contemplations and utterances to construct a character study of one of Hollywood’s true enigmas. From his early breakthroughs in A Streetcar Named Desire, The Wild One and On The Waterfront to later years in self-imposed exile, the picture that will emerge is one of a restive, enquiring mind always searching for peace, but never finding it. »

Just relax, relax, relax. I'm going to help you change in a way that will make you feel happier, more useful...I want you to accept what I say as true. What I tell you here and now is true."

Stevan Riley Listens to Marlon Brando

By Alex Simon

In addition to being widely regarded as the greatest film actor of all-time, Marlon Brando, who died in 2004, remains one of popular culture's great enigmas. A man who fiercely guarded his privacy and shunned the spotlight whenever he could, Brando purchased an island in the South Pacific, a place so remote and removed from the western world and its media.

Joshua Reviews Stevan Riley’s Listen To Me Marlon [Theatrical Review]

31 July 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

It sure has been a hell of a year for the artist biography in the world of documentary cinema. With films like Montage of Heck, Amy and What Happened, Miss Simone, giving us a view of their central focus in their very own words, 2015 has been the year not only of boundary pushing documentaries like The Look Of Silence, but form challenging and introspective meditations on fame like the three mentioned above. Be it the audio recordings in Montage of Heck or the video founds in the Amy Winehouse picture Amy, we are becoming more and more privy to insights into our artists that one could never have thought of gaining.

And now the greatest film of the bunch is finally seeing a release.

Following very much in the mold of recent from-the-horse’s-mouth style documentaries like the ones above, Listen To Me Marlon is arguably the crowning achievement of this new movement of sorts. »

The 10 Most Essential Marlon Brando Performances

29 July 2015 9:04 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There are never fewer than about eight reasons to think about Marlon Brando at any given moment, but right now there are a couple more: it's 61 years to the day since the release of Elia Kazan's peerless "On the Waterfront," which netted Brando the first of his two Best Actor Oscars, and this week also sees the release of one of the best documentaries of the year, "Listen to Me Marlon." We've had six decades to talk about the brilliance of the first, so a few words about the second, to which we gave a strongly positive review out of the New Directors/New Films Festival, and which, if anything, those of us who've seen it since are even more high on.  Read More: Watch: Trailer And Clip For Marlon Brando Documentary 'Listen To Me Marlon' British director Stevan Riley has previously mounted documentaries on the James Bond franchise, »

Review: 'Listen To Me Marlon' Provides Gripping, Unprecedented Insight Into The Acting Legend

28 July 2015 3:26 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“I coulda been a contender! I coulda been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am, let's face it.” That classic scene from “On The Waterfront” was part and parcel behind Marlon Brando's release into the stratosphere of supercool. Beginning with his stage debut as Stanley Kowalski in “A Streetcar Named Desire” (which he, of course, reprised in the 1951 film adaptation), his film debut in “The Men,” and a string of larger-than-life roles culminating with his Oscar-winning turn as Terry Malloy in 'Waterfront,' Hollywood was Brando's oyster in the 1950s, and a man became a cultural symbol. Through these roles, and future titanic turns in “The Godfather,” “Apocalypse Now,” and “The Last Tango in Paris,” we know and remember Marlon Brando as one of the greatest screen actors of all time. But what of the man behind the actor? This question fuels Stevan Riley's documentary, »

Real Brando is Revealed by Actor’s Audiotapes in ‘Listen To Me Marlon’

28 July 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Who was the real Marlon Brando? Those unfamiliar with the Method-acting icon’s electrifying early work with director Elia Kazan might recall him as a bloated recluse, sequestered away in his Mulholland Drive compound or his Tahitian retreat, only to emerge when scandal hit or to rake in a quick million with work that was beneath him.

But “Listen to Me Marlon,” which opens in New York on July 29 and in L.A. July 31, goes a long way toward debunking the myths behind the legend, who died in 2004.

“He did take acting very seriously, even to the end,” says the film’s writer-editor-director Stevan Riley. “He would do intensive research for roles, scribbling in the margins of books and scripts. Everything he learned he would somehow squeeze into a film if he had an interest in it: things about mythology, the nature of good and evil, Freudian analysis. He was »

How Brando Narrated Biodoc 'Listen to Me Marlon'

27 July 2015 9:10 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

After a strong debut at the Sundance Film Festival, Showtime Documentary Films is releasing "Listen to Me Marlon" in theaters July 29 before airing on cable, which means it will be eligible for the doc Oscar.  Developed by Showtime and produced by John Battsek's Passion Pictures, "Listen to Me Marlon" delivers a multi-faceted portrait of Brando that is fascinating because it's narrated by Brando himself using never-before-heard audiotapes from his vast archives. Brando talked to himself, essentially, throughout his career, often as part of his preparation for roles, from "On the Waterfront" and "The Godfather" to "Last Tango in Paris." And Passion Pictures and writer-director-editor Riley also animated a digital mask of Brando created for "Superman" to deliver some of Brando's dialogue. The movie immerses us in Brando, takes us inside his head. We feel we know him in a way we never did before.  Also »

Scratching our heads at the BBC's top 100 American Movies of All-Time

21 July 2015 5:07 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

First off, let's make one thing clear.  We're not scratching our heads at Spike Lee's "Do The Right Thing" making the BBC's 100 greatest American films.  That movie, of which an image accompanies this post, not only made the list, but ranked appropriately at no. 25.  It's the rest of the selections that have us scratching and, yes, shaking our heads in disbelief. A wonderful page view driver, these sorts of lists make great fodder for passionate movie fans no matter what their age or part of the world they hail from.  There is nothing more entertaining than watching two critics from opposite ends of the globe try to debate whether "The Dark Knight" should have been nominated for best picture or make a list like this.  Even in this age of short form content where Vines, Shapchats and Instagram videos have captured viewers attention, movies will continue to inspire because »

Jackson Returns! Two-Time Oscar Winner and Former Labour MP to Star in Zola Adaptation

2 July 2015 4:06 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Glenda Jackson: Actress and former Labour MP. Two-time Oscar winner and former Labour MP Glenda Jackson returns to acting Two-time Best Actress Academy Award winner Glenda Jackson set aside her acting career after becoming a Labour Party MP in 1992. Four years ago, Jackson, who represented the Greater London constituency of Hampstead and Highgate, announced that she would stand down the 2015 general election – which, somewhat controversially, was won by right-wing prime minister David Cameron's Conservative party.[1] The silver lining: following a two-decade-plus break, Glenda Jackson is returning to acting. Now, Jackson isn't – for the time being – returning to acting in front of the camera. The 79-year-old is to be featured in the Radio 4 series Emile Zola: Blood, Sex and Money, described on their website as a “mash-up” adaptation of 20 Emile Zola novels collectively known as "Les Rougon-Macquart."[2] Part 1 of the three-part Radio 4 series will be broadcast daily during an »

Last Surviving Gwtw Star and 2-Time Oscar Winner Has Turned 99: As a Plus, She Made U.S. Labor Law History

Olivia de Havilland picture U.S. labor history-making 'Gone with the Wind' star and two-time Best Actress winner Olivia de Havilland turns 99 (This Olivia de Havilland article is currently being revised and expanded.) Two-time Best Actress Academy Award winner Olivia de Havilland, the only surviving major Gone with the Wind cast member and oldest surviving Oscar winner, is turning 99 years old today, July 1.[1] Also known for her widely publicized feud with sister Joan Fontaine and for her eight movies with Errol Flynn, de Havilland should be remembered as well for having made Hollywood labor history. This particular history has nothing to do with de Havilland's films, her two Oscars, Gone with the Wind, Joan Fontaine, or Errol Flynn. Instead, history was made as a result of a legal fight: after winning a lawsuit against Warner Bros. in the mid-'40s, Olivia de Havilland put an end to treacherous »

Movie Poster of the Week: “Scorsese Collects” at MoMA

29 May 2015 4:54 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

It is common knowledge that Martin Scorsese has impeccable taste when it comes to movies, but, starting tomorrow, the Museum of Modern Art in New York will display the director’s exquisite taste in movie poster art too.Scorsese Collects brings together 34 of the most prized items in his reportedly vast collection. There are posters for many of Marty’s avowed favorite directors: Kazan and Kubrick, Ford and Franju, Mann and Melville, Siegel and Sturges, and, especially, Jacques Tourneur, Max Ophüls and Michael Powell, who each get practically a wall to themselves. But the stars here are really the poster artists, and curators Dave Kehr and Ron Magliozzi have assembled works by many of the greats (many of whom are Movie Poster of the Week favorites too) such as Peter Strausfeld, Anselmo Ballester, René Péron, Jean Mascii, Guy Gérard Noël, Osvaldo Venturi and Boris Grinsson.The highlight of the show »

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Early Morphine Addiction Drama Marred by Several Hammy Performances

11 May 2015 2:22 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'A Hatful of Rain' with Lloyd Nolan, Anthony Franciosa and Don Murray 'A Hatful of Rain' script fails to find cinematic voice as most of the cast hams it up Based on a play by Michael V. Gazzo, A Hatful of Rain is an interesting attempt at injecting "adult" subject matters – in this case, the evils of drug addiction – into Hollywood movies. "Interesting," however, does not mean either successful or compelling. Despite real, unromantic New York City locations and Joseph MacDonald's beautifully realistic black-and-white camera work (and the pointless use of CinemaScope), this Fred Zinnemann-directed melodrama feels anachronistically stagy as a result of its artificial dialogue and the hammy theatricality of its performers – with Eva Marie Saint as the sole naturalistic exception. 'A Hatful of Rain' synopsis Somewhat revolutionary in its day (Otto Preminger's The Man with a Golden Arm,* also about drug addiction, »

Every Best Picture Oscar Winner, Ranked From Worst to Best

6 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This week marks the 10th anniversary of the release of "Crash" (on May 6, 2005), an all-star movie whose controversy came not from its provocative treatment of racial issues but from its Best Picture Oscar victory a few months later, against what many critics felt was a much more deserving movie, "Brokeback Mountain."

The "Crash" vs. "Brokeback" battle is one of those lingering disputes that makes the Academy Awards so fascinating, year after year. Moviegoers and critics who revisit older movies are constantly judging the Academy's judgment. Even decades of hindsight may not always be enough to tell whether the Oscar voters of a particular year got it right or wrong. Whether it's "Birdman" vs. "Boyhood," "The King's Speech" vs. "The Social Network," "Saving Private Ryan" vs. "Shakespeare in Love" or even "An American in Paris" vs. "A Streetcar Named Desire," we're still confirming the Academy's taste or dismissing it as hopelessly off-base years later. »
