Watch: How Classic Noir 'The Big Heat' Comes to a Full Boil

23 October 2015 2:30 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Homicide cop Glenn Ford visits destruction on every woman he meets while avenging the murder of his wife. Fritz Lang’s noirish classic is tough, cynical ,and operates from the premise that most big cities are run by crime syndicates—a popular theme in contemporary thrillers like "The Enforcer," "The Big Combo," and "The Phenix City Story."

Casting: Brie Larson Joins Ben Wheatley's 'Free Fire,' Juliette Bincohe Heads To Bruno Dumont’s 'Slack Bay' & More

8 April 2015 6:18 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We were excited as it is for Ben Wheatley's "High-Rise," but just the cast and premise alone for his next movie — the Martin Scorsese produced "Free Fire" — now has us salivating. And another great player has joined the mix. Brie Larson is replacing Olivia Wilde in the film that already has Luke Evans, Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy, and Michael Smiley lined up to star.  Set in Boston in 1978, and inspired by films like "The Killing," "The Big Combo, "The Driver," "Le Samourai," "The French Connection," "Goodfellas," "Casino," "Hard Boiled," "Reservoir Dogs," "The Getaway" and more, the story kicks off "in a deserted warehouse where a meeting between two gangs turns into a deadly shootout and all-out survival." Filming is expected to begin later this year. [Variety] Juliette Binoche is reteaming with her "Camille Claudel »

Martin Scorsese To Exec Produce Ben Wheatley's 'Free Fire'; Lynne Ramsay Producing 'I Feel Fine'

9 February 2015 9:01 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Okay, just because a famous director puts his or her name on a movie, doesn't necessarily give it a mark of quality. And Martin Scorsese himself is an example of that, as he put his stamp on the critically-slammed crime flick "The Revenge Of The Green Dragons" last year. That being said, it looks like he's course correcting in a big way. Scorsese will executive produced Ben Wheatley's "Free Fire." The ever-busy Wheatley — who is currently in post-production on "High Rise" — will lens the flick, starring Luke Evans, Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy, Olivia Wilde and Michael Smiley later this year. Set in Boston in 1978, and inspired by films like "The Killing," "The Big Combo, "The Driver," "Le Samourai," "The French Connection," "Goodfellas," "Casino," "Hard Boiled," "Reservoir Dogs," "The Getaway" and more, the story kicks off when "a meeting in a »

The Conversation: Drew Morton and Landon Palmer Discuss ‘The Killing’

7 February 2015 9:21 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Conversation is a new feature at Sound on Sight bringing together Drew Morton and Landon Palmer in a passionate debate about cinema new and old. For their second piece, they will discuss Stanley Kubrick’s film The Killing (1956).

Drew’s Take

Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing (1956) is not my favorite work by the visionary director. In fact, the film probably wouldn’t even make it onto a list of my top five Kubrick films. Yet, with a career that included such amazing films as Paths of Glory (1957),Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964),2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), Barry Lyndon (1975), and The Shining (1980), that’s not an indication that The Killing is a film of poor quality but an indication that Kubrick’s body of work comes the closest to cinematic perfection than any director I can think of. Thus, while The Killing »
