Karlovy Vary Film Festival to Present Six Close Encounters

17 June 2015 3:54 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — The 50th edition of the Karlovy Vary Film Festival is to include a special section entitled Six Close Encounters, in which six directors who share a history with the festival will present one of their favorite films.

“It is extremely important to us that we maintain long-term relationships with filmmakers whose work we follow continuously, often from the beginning of their careers, which in many cases were launched at the festival,” artistic director Karel Och said.

With this in mind, the event asked six directors to select and personally present a favorite film that played a fundamental role in defining their own filmmaking styles.

The directors contributing to the showcase are Mark Cousins, Kim Ki-duk, Sergei Loznitsa, Luis Minarro, Michael R. Roskam and Sion Sono.

Cousins chose the Iranian-French film “A Moment of Innocence” (1996) by one of the leading directors of the Iranian new wave, Mohsen Makhmalbaf. Cousins’ homage »

100 Essential Action Scenes: Heists

14 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sound on Sight undertook a massive project, compiling ranked lists of the most influential, unforgettable, and exciting action scenes in all of cinema. There were hundreds of nominees spread across ten different categories and a multi-week voting process from 11 of our writers. The results: 100 essential set pieces, sequences, and scenes from blockbusters to cult classics to arthouse obscurities.    

Hollywood has had a long love affair with the heist sub-genre. Dating as far back as the silent film era with 1928’s Alias Jimmy Valentine, and transcending various genres like westerns (The War Wagon), war (Kelly’s Heroes) and even animation (Toy Story 3), the heist has tantalized our fantasies and outsmarted our wits for decades. Whether it’s for the very last time before retirement, gathering the gang back together for a big payday or for the thrill of pulling off the perfect robbery, all heist films share one key element: commitment to a plan. »

That Man From Rio & Up To His Ears | Blu-ray Review

14 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Two of director Philippe de Broca’s earliest renowned titles get new restorations and are available for the first time on Blu-ray, That Man From Rio (1964) and Up to His Ears (1965), the first two titles from a loose James Bond spoof trilogy featuring Jean-Paul Belmondo. Certainly ahead of his time, de Broca’s amusing adventure films are much more than the kind of lowbrow entertainment that would come to typify the genre known as spoof, and this became a notable inspiration for Steven Spielberg’s Indiana Jones films, particularly 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Inspired by the adventures of Belgian cartoonist Herge’s Tintin adventures (which also provided the basis for a 2011 Steven Spielberg adaptation), a prized Amazonian statue is stolen from a Parisian museum. Three such statues left South American on an expedition that involved the late father of Agnes (Francoise Dorleac) and and two colleagues. Professor Catalan »
