Exclusive: Norman Lear Interviewed By Cinema Retro's Eddy Friedfeld

Norman Lear- Just Another Version of You

By Eddy Friedeld

The first two people in my life who taught me to think deeply about social and political issues and argue cogently and passionately for what I believed in were my late father David and Norman Lear.

Lear, the 94-year-old entertainment icon is the subject of a terrific American Masters documentary: Norman Lear- Just Another Version of You, which premieres nationwide Tuesday, October 25, 9-10:30 p.m. on PBS.

Speaking from his home in Los Angeles about both the documentary and his masterful 2014 autobiography, Even This I Get to Experience, he still has an energy level that would put people a quarter of his age to shame.

“People think when you’re over 90 you’ve changed. It’s everyone else who’s changed. Suddenly I’m extremely wise,” Lear says. Charming and reflective, he explains why he wears the »

Suddenly

8 October 2016 12:11 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Political terror scenarios were a bit simpler in the 1950s, and movies about them fairly rare. Frank Sinatra gives a strong performance as the villain John Baron, in a tense tale of presidential assassination by high-powered rifle. Suddenly Blu-ray The Film Detective 1954 / B&W / 1.75 widescreen / 75 min. / Street Date October 25, 2016 / 14.99 Starring Frank Sinatra, Sterling Hayden, James Gleason, Nancy Gates, Willis Bouchey, Cinematography Charles G. Clarke Art Direction Frank Sylos Film Editor John F. Schreyer Original Music David Raksin Written by Richard Sale Produced by Robert Bassler Directed by Lewis Allen

Some disc companies do well by refurbishing movies in the Public Domain, using various methods to bring what were once bargain-bin eyesores nearer the level of releases made from prime source material in studio vaults. As I've reported with efforts by HD Cinema Classics and Vci, the results vary dramatically -- did the company do a professional job, »

Woody Allen: A Career in 20 Hilarious, Brilliant Lines

13 July 2016 9:17 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

This Friday, Café Society, the latest release from writer/director/comic godhead Woody Allen, waltzes into theaters — the 47th feature Allen has directed over a career spanning 50 years. (Yes, we're counting New York Stories.) He's had box-office successes and outright bombs, Oscar-winning masterpieces and critically panned duds. But regardless of his movies' receptions (and the reoccurring rumors about his personal life), he's managed to pump out a film a year with impressive regularity. Some key elements have stayed the same — once a jazz clarinet slinks onto the soundtrack, audiences know exactly who they're dealing with. »

Top Ridiculous Scenes In Movies

3 June 2016 6:14 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Some movies have been accused of stretching reality in order to keep their stories 'flowing', with viewers usually forced to suspend their disbelief. Then there are those moments when we admit there are plot devices in some serious films that are just plain ridiculous including "Kill Bill: Vol. 2", "Face/Off", "Run Lola Run", "The Untouchables" and "Rocky":

"Kill Bill: Vol. 2"

In writer/director Quentin Tarantino's 2004 revenge action thriller, 'Beatrice' (Uma Thurman) aka 'The Bride' embarks on a slice 'n dice rampage, to take out the 'Deadly Vipers' gang of killers that left her for dead on her wedding day.

Unfortunately her quest is near-terminated by 'Budd', the brother of 'Bill'  who shoots her in the chest and, with the help of 'Elle Driver', buries Bea in a coffin - alive.

Recalling the teachings of her master 'Pai Mei', and her struggles in punching through a wooden board, »

Scott Reviews Samuel Fuller’s Fixed Bayonets! [Masters of Cinema Blu-ray Review]

12 May 2016 11:52 AM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

I’m noticing more and more a theme in postwar (especially American) cinema concerning pacifists turning towards violence. A character will introduce him- or herself as someone unable and morally opposed to weapons in general or harming another human being specifically, only to be put in a situation in which violence is presented as the only way out. We’ve covered (at least) two such films on this very website – Shane and Violent Saturday – and, having just seen it, I can add the considerably odd Frank Sinatra vehicle Suddenly to this list.

It’s not hard to see why American filmmakers and moviegoers would be interested in this subject at this time. Many of them had recently returned from war, where they did awful things for a greater good; those who didn’t go to war themselves certainly knew somebody who had. On a much larger scale, the use of »

The Manchurian Candidate

22 March 2016 11:56 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

It's the classic paranoid conspiracy that won't go away... and that seems less impossible with every passing year. Laurence Harvey is a remote-controlled assassin, and Frank Sinatra seems to be under a little hypnotic influence himself... or are we just imagining it? John Frankenheimer and George Axelrod concoct a masterpiece from the novel by Richard Condon, a movie about conspiracies, that may be hiding more secrets in plain sight. The Manchurian Candidate Blu-ray The Criterion Collection 803 1962 / B&W / 1:75 widescreen / 126 min. / available through The Criterion Collection / Street Date March 15, 2016 / 39.95 Starring Frank Sinatra, Laurence Harvey, Janet Leigh, Angela Lansbury, Henry Silva, James Gregory, Leslie Parrish, John McGiver, Khigh Dhiegh Cinematography Lionel Lindon Production Designer Richard Sylbert Film Editor Ferris Webster Original Music David Amram Written by George Axelrod from the novel by Richard Condon Produced by George Axelrod, John Frankenheimer, Howard W.

The 20 Best Detective Movies of All Time

16 February 2016 2:00 AM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

From a pop culture perspective, private detectives stand for all that’s memorable about film noir. The indifference, the wittiness, and the moral ambiguity that define each urban knight has since become the stuff of parodied legend. We’re talking about the mediators between the crooks and the cops, the embodiment of back alley grayness that’s so tough to pin down. P.I.’s could cooperate with the law if needed, but they could just as soon do business with the bad guys for the right price. To a certain extent, that is – shamus work has always attracted the ignored and the ethical. The Wild West has mythical men with no name, The Asphalt Jungle has names with investigating licenses attached to them. Instead of a poncho and a ten gallon hat, they’re provided a fedora and trench coat.

The archetype has undergone many faces throughout Hollywood’s history, »
