How Mad Men changed the way men dress

15 April 2014 9:19 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Mad Men is back for a final series and its sartorial impact cannot be overstated. Jonathan Heaf describes how Don Draper helped a generation of ageing hipsters grow up gracefully, while Lauren Cochrane sums up the style influence of the other principal players, from perfect pyjamas to outlandish prints

When Mad Men began, in 2007, many men myself included were wearing the same scoop-necked, vintage band T-shirts, too-skinny jeans and winklepickers we had started the millennium in. It was a time when Hedi Slimane's pipe-cleaner menswear silhouette was still worth skipping lunch for, when Peter Doherty and his band of rakes were roaming the back alleys of Camden, inhaling the last vapours of indie rock credibility.

Then Don Draper waltzed in, with his grey suits, heavily pomaded, side-parted hair, billowy white shirts and perfectly neat pocket square. He looked like your dad, but sharper: like James Stewart in Rear Window, »

Watch: Vintage 'Siskel & Ebert' Special 'Dial H For Hitchcock'

8 April 2014 8:37 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You'll want to make some time for this excellent "Siskel & Ebert" special from 1983, “Dial H for Hitchock,” in which the beloved and much-missed critical pair do their thing (after a few promos for their review of “The Big Chill”, for whatever reason). The show highlights an interesting bit of film history: it was made to coincide with the rerelease of several Hitchcocks in the early 80s–“Vertigo,” “Rear Window,” “Rope,” “The Man Who Knew Too Much,” “The Trouble With Harry”–all of which had been hard to see in the U.S. for some years before 1983, Hitchcock himself having intentionally kept prints scarce to increase their value. “Vertigo” and “Rear Window”, of course, are two of Hitchcock's absolutely most influential film, so it's strange to imagine a time when many film fans wouldn't ever have seen them. This isn't just a Hitchcock hagiography though: the other three films aren't quite of the same legendary status, »

Alfred Hitchcock – The 39 Steps (1935)

8 April 2014 8:06 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Mark Pinkert

Contributor

Alfred Hitchcock‘s North by Northwest (1959) is his most famous rendering of the innocent-man-on-the-run thriller, but The 39 Steps (1935) is the original, and while the former is colored, cohesive, and so in a form for longevity, the latter is more eccentric, stylized, and perhaps more oddly compelling. But The 39 Steps hasn’t survived in popular memory because it is in black-and-white and is often difficult to understand (mumbling British accents and underdeveloped sound-mixing). Modern film viewers will have seen at least Psycho (1960),Vertigo (1958), and Rear Window (1954), or some combination of the Hitchcock essentials, but only the true enthusiasts–fewer and fewer they remain–will see The 39 Steps. My suggestion is to see it, regardless.

'Raising Hope,' 'How I Met Your Mother' and the obligation of a 'Legendary!' finale

4 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Our TV week is bookended by sitcom goodbyes. It began with the series finale of How I Met Your Mother; it concludes with the capper to Raising Hope, tapping out tonight with back-to-back episodes, including one cheekily entitled “How I Met Your Mullet.” Created by Greg Garcia, who also gave us My Name Is Earl, the four-season-running Raising Hope was a sweet-and-salty sitcom about the daffy-dumb Chance clan — Virginia, the responsible materfamilias (Martha Plimpton); Burt, the air-headed dad (Garret Dillahunt); Jimmy, the teen-son-turned-teen-father (Lucas Neff); and Maw-Maw, the cracked and coarse grandma (Cloris Leachman) — collectively raising the titular babe, and was always a big-hearted, »

What Are Grace Kelly's Best Films? We Give the Top Three to Hitchcock

1 April 2014 10:26 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Grace Kelly is having a comeback this year. The Weinsteins' "Grace of Monaco," starring Nicole Kidman, is opening Cannes. (The film mostly deals with the Hollywood star turned princess giving up her career for love.) Toronto's Tiff Bell Lightbox mounted a Kelly exhibition. And a new six-film DVD collection is set to arrive later this summer, celebrating the quintessential icy blonde. Which leads us to ask: What are Kelly's best films?  1. Hitchcock's "Rear Window" is the clear frontrunner. A slow-burn masterpiece of reflexivity, the one-location tale sees Jimmy Stewart immobilized with a broken leg, left to let his mind and long-lens camera wander wild around the courtyard of his apartment block. And, lo and behold, he discovers Raymond Burr's up to some rather disturbing wife-removal. Meanwhile Kelly uses all her persuasive powers -- including a sensational shimmering nightgown -- to make the case for Stewart settling down with her. »

Cinedigm Lets Genre Breeze in; Grab SXSW Preemed Nacho Vigalondo’s “Open Windows”

1 April 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

After last year’s notable SXSW fest pick-ups in Short Term 12 and Our Nixon, Cinedigm is taking a trip into genre-land item with Nacho Vigalondo’s Open Windows. Starring the James Stewart of horror-thriller genre in Elijah Wood in a keyboard unfriendly voyeuristic tale that turns into a real life Rear Window, this also features Sasha Grey (The Girlfriend Experience). Deadline reports that Cinedigm will release the film during the late summer or early fall with what we imagine would be a showing at genre fests such as Montreal’s Fantasia Film Fest.

Gist: Wood stars as Nick, who wins an online contest to have dinner with the hottest actress on earth Jill (Grey). When she cancels, he gets a call from a guy named Chord who offers to make it up to Nick by giving him the tools to spy on Jill from his computer for the rest of the night. »

Cinedigm Picks Up 'Open Windows,' the 21st Century 'Rear Windows'

1 April 2014 8:47 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Cinedigm is on a roll lately, with recent acquisitions including "Antboy," "Remote Area Medical," and "Night Moves." And now, to add another genre to this list consisting of family films, documentaries, and drama-thrillers, the company just nabbed U.S. distribution rights to Nacho Vigalondo's "Open Windows," a 21st century "Rear Window" styled thriller-chiller. The film had its world premiere earlier this month at SXSW. The plot revolves around Nick (Elijah Wood), who, thanks to an online contest, wins a dinner with Jill Goddard (Sasha Grey) tonight, an actress he admires. Then he gets drawn into a strange kidnapping scenario in which, instead of meeting the actress, he's forced to give her commands from his computer screen at the behest of an unseen menace. The entire story takes place within the confines of the screen. “Nacho is one of the most innovative and visionary filmmakers working today. And his talents »

Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves

26 March 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Dodgy history and dodgier accents, but Kevin Costner's medieval romp still has some magic – and shouldn't be judged on the weakness of its imitators

Most things about Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves are terrible. Kevin Costner's and Christian Slater's attempts at English accents: terrible. Bryan Adam's theme song which refused to go away during the summer of 1991 and can conjure mass feelings of nausea to this very day: terrible. Seeing Costner's naked arse as he gets washed in a waterfall: terrible. But I've still probably watched it more than any other film and will (in true Robin Hood spirit) defend it until my dying breath.

I was a pretty sickly child, and when I was off school I'd always put it on. The stupid accents, shoe-horned in Moorish sidekick (played by Morgan Freeman) and romantiscied outlaw life were like a security blanket as I watched it while »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – March 24th 2014

24 March 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Not much to speak of in the pre-amble this week except that From Dusk Till Dawn episode 2 on Netflix continued in fine form and presented an interesting and somewhat unique version of a vampire which was actually quite scary. If you have written this off because it sounds cheap and forced (admittedly on paper it does) I urge you to give it a watch, the dialogue alone is better than most TV shows, “Got your balls on?” is a great line I will repeat ad nauseam henceforth.

In other news Netflix CEO Reed Hastings has criticised internet providers for not providing a good enough service to allow users to use Netflix to its full potential and the costs of maintaining such a connection, mainly what ISPs are expecting streaming companies to pay them. This has also kicked off a debate about net neutrality which I know little about. I believe »

SXSW Film Review: ‘Open Windows’

20 March 2014 5:27 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A fiendishly inventive thriller built around an audacious if unsustainable gimmick, “Open Windows” elevates Hitchcockian suspense to jittery new levels of mayhem and paranoia. Essentially conceived as a technologically sophisticated mash-up of “Rear Window” and “Rope,” this latest mind-bender from Spanish genre trickster Nacho Vigalondo (“Timecrimes,” “Extraterrestrial”) unfolds entirely in one carefully manipulated “shot,” with the camera glued to the lead character’s computer screen, employing desktop videos, images and pop-ups to tell its lurid tale of celebrity obsession, stalking, hacking, surveillance, blackmail and murder. Barely maintaining coherence if not plausibility, the compulsively watchable result should enjoy a vigorous fest and VOD life; fitting as it might be to stream it on your laptop, its complex visual layers and blink-and-you-miss-’em plot turns are best suited to the bigscreen.

Scarlett Johansson in Under the Skin: 'prick her and she doesn't bleed'

15 March 2014 3:50 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

In Jonathan Glazer's latest film about an extraterrestrial driving around Scotland in search of male prey, nothing is certain, except, says Leo Robson, Scarlett Johansson's uncanny ability to act like an alien

Scarlett Johansson has a striking face and a resonant voice, though it seems that either will do. In Spike Jonze's Her (2013), which came out last month, she plays the title role but never appears. Now we have Jonathan Glazer's science fiction film of Michel Faber's novel Under the Skin, in which she is present, deadpan and dead-eyed, throughout, but barely says a word.

Johansson's role in Glazer's film, despite its restrictions, gives her the opportunity to draw equally on the different elements of her personality – sunny and neurotic, sassy and glassy. Woody Allen explored both of these sides in Match Point (2005). In his later film, Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008), the two heroines were opposites, »

Updating Classic Movies with Modern Technology

12 March 2014 7:28 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Over the years there have been many attempts to update treasured movies. Whether it’s the sacrilegious colourisation of nevergreen classics such as It’s a Wonderful Life or the (more interesting) bookending of revered films with sequels and prequels there’s nothing quite as enticing to an eager studio as a well-known and well-loved classic.

Problems arise however when technological and social  advances become obstacles to those filmmakers insistent on sticking as closely as possibly to the beloved original. Mobile phones, for example, would save hundreds of those previously in peril, CCTV and Gps tracking would have made a mockery of many a murder mystery; and Google Earth comes to the rescue of those lost in any number of haunted woods.

We’ve taken a look at some classic films and what an update might mean.  Let’s begin with a beloved film -

SXSW 2014: Open Windows Review

You know when you’ve got so many windows open on your computer that you hit the point where you can’t keep track of them all, forget some are open and also why you opened them in the first place?  The same thing happens with the laptop point of view movie Open Windows.
