Uma Thurman Caught In "Night and Fog"

5 November 2014 8:17 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Uma Thurman will play WW2 intelligence officer Vera Atkins in John Hay’s upcoming drama "Night and Fog" based on Sarah Helm’s non-fiction novel "A Life in Secrets".

Atkins was an intelligence officer for Special Operation Executive’s French Section who trained and dispatched agents to Occupied France. After the conflict, she makes it her mission to discover the fate of those who went missing during her tenure.

The film will focus on another famous element of her story, specifically her involvement in the interrogation of Rudolf Hoess, the notorious Auschwitz concentration camp commandant

Atkins has been cited as the inspiration for the character of Miss Moneypenny in Ian Fleming’s James Bond novels.  Jeremy Bolt and Elliot Jenkins are producing 'Fog' and filming begins in Northern Ireland in 2015.

The Past, Present, and Future of Real-Time Films Part Two

17 October 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sidney And The Sixties: Real-time 1957-1966

Throughout the 1950s, Hollywood’s relationship with television was fraught: TV was a hated rival but also a source of cheap talent and material, as in the case of the small-scale Marty (1955), which won the Best Picture Oscar. These contradictions were well represented by the apparently “televisual” 12 Angry Men (1957), which began life as a teleplay concerning a jury with a lone holdout who must, and eventually does, convince his fellow jurors of the defendant’s innocence. Its writer, Reginald Rose, persuaded one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, Henry Fonda, to become a first-time producer of the film version. Fonda and Rose took basement-low salaries in favor of future points, and hired a TV director, Sidney Lumet, for next to nothing because Lumet wanted a first feature credit. Technically, there’s an opening bit on the courtroom steps that keeps this from being a true real-time film, »

Chinese Actress Zhang Jingchu Accepts ‘Mission’ With Tom Cruise (Exclusive)

6 October 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Chinese actress Zhang Jingchu has joined the cast of action thriller “Mission: Impossible 5,” in a major role opposite Tom Cruise.

Zhang is currently shooting in the U.K. on the Paramount Pictures, Skydance and Bad Robot production. Her role is supposedly being kept secret as it is integral to a major plot twist. Chinese fans have spotted her out shopping in London, but she has not communicated why she is in the British capital.

Zhang, who trained as a director and speaks fluent English, previously appeared in “Rush Hour 3” and Florian Gallenberger’s China-set “City of War: The John Rabe Story” and joins a growing list of Chinese leading ladies who are making headway in Hollywood.

Versatile, Zhang has impressive resumes in China and Hong Kong. In China she starred in Feng Xiaogang’s blockbuster drama “Aftershock” having made early career impressions in “Peacock” and “Tsui Hark’s “7 Swords. »

Asian Filmmaker of the Year Ann Hui: A Critical Appreciation

3 October 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ann Hui first came to international prominence in the early ’80s with “Boat People,” an intensely harrowing drama about the horrors of life under communism in post-liberation Vietnam. Screened as a surprise entry at the 1983 Cannes Film Festival (after being pulled from competition by order of the French government), the picture sparked immediate controversy and was angrily dismissed in some quarters as a work of Chinese-backed propaganda. The debate grew so fierce that Hui felt spurred to insist, not for the last time, that she was an ideologically neutral filmmaker, and that “Boat People,” whatever else it might be, was above all an appeal to the personal over the political.

It’s hard not to wonder if the next 30 years or so of Hui’s remarkably varied career have been a sort of collective response to that provocative milestone, born of some private determination that she would never again allow »

Ann Hui: Asian Filmmaker of the Year Quietly Built Hefty Resume

3 October 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ann Hui is a quiet, unflashy type whose merits — honesty, diversity and lack of pre-conceptions — are the kind of humane, long-lasting values that rise to the surface over time, rather than in a bubble of manufactured PR.

She receives the Asian Filmmaker of the Year Award from the Busan Intl. Film Festival. That is an award that in previous years has gone to giants of the Asian scene including Mohsen Makhmalbaf, Hou Hsiao-hsien and Yash Chopra.

Hui receives the award having recently made one of her most commercially successful films, “A Simple Life,” and one of her biggest-budget, “The Golden Era,” which premiered last month as the closing film of the Venice festival.

A leader of the Hong Kong New Wave in the 1980s, Hui is arguably closer to the diversity and humanity of Hong Kong than any of the big-name men: John Woo, Wong Kar Wai, Johnnie To or Tsui Hark. »

Nyff 2014: With swansong ‘Life of Riley’, Alain Resnais depicts life on the wicked stage

25 September 2014 11:03 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Life of Riley

Written for the screen by Laurent Herbiet and Alain Resnais

Directed by Alain Resnais

France, 2014

Alain Resnais is inarguably one of the most prolific directors to come out of the French New Wave, with nearly 50 films under his belt, including his masterworks Hiroshima, Mon Amour, Last Year at Marienbad, and Night and Fog. Undeterred by age, he seemed to have been working up until the day he died, with his swan song Life of Riley being presented posthumously at this year’s New York Film Festival. Those only familiar with his Nouvelle Vague work will be in for a pleasant surprise: Life of Riley is perhaps more fun that it deserves to be.

Based on the play by Alan Ayckbourn, the film follows two (or three, depending on how you count) couples in the midst of rehearsals for a play, as the news of their friend’s »

6 Filmmaking Tips from Alain Resnais

4 June 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Three weeks before Alain Resnais died this past March, he had premiered his newest film, Life of Riley, at the Berlin Film Festival, which he completed at the age of 91. Resnais enjoyed a uniquely prolific streak of filmmaking in his later years that laughed at the prospect of retirement or death. For a moment it seemed possible that Resnais himself would continue to exist as ceaselessly as the memories that preoccupy his characters; thankfully, with his incredible body of work, Resnais is etched into eternity. Resnais continued to experiment with the limits of cinematic form over fifty years after his career-defining work on Night and Fog, Hiroshima mon amour, and Last Year in Marienbad. The past decade of his career proved that age is no excuse for artistic resignation or repetition – while not nearly as well-known, more recent works including Private Fears in Public Places, Wild Grass, and You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet! challenged »

Cannes 2014 Day 2 Recap: Leigh’s British Landscape via “Mr.Turner”, Ucr in “Party Girl” Mode, Quinzaine Dances to “Girlhood”, CW in Love with “Fla”

16 May 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

(Cannes – May 15th) The press were treated to their first 8:30 a.m. Grand Lumiere screening and were taken back to the late seventeen hundredths London (among other places) in Mike Leigh’s historical biopic on a painterly individual. At the press conference, Timothy Spall who had been pitched the project several years ago and picked up the brush for a good two year period alongside a professional, found that one of the dwellings in his own personal family history (dating not that long ago) matched one of Turner’s actual known addresses  – a rather remarkable coincidence in my books. One journo also asked Mike Leigh how the Secrets & Lies stamp came about (check out the news piece).

The festival’s sidebar (Un Certain Regard) and parallel sections Directors’ Fortnight and Critics Week got off to a rowdy start. Ucr opener Party Girl (by directing team comprised of Marie Amachoukeli, »

Classe tous risques DVD – Philip French on Claude Sautet's pitch-perfect directorial debut

22 March 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

(Claude Sautet, 1960; BFI, 12)

Le roman policier and le film policier (now widely known by the reverse slang or verlan term "polar") have been staples of French popular culture for a century. Its soundtrack crackling with underworld argot, its air thick with smoke from Gauloises, its morality pulsating with romantic cynicism, the genre's golden age in the cinema was roughly between 1955 and the mid-70s. That's from the release of Rififi (the 1955 gangster movie directed by blacklisted American exile Jules Dassin, a movie much indebted to John Huston's 1950 The Asphalt Jungle) to the death in 1973 of Jean-Pierre Melville, the Americanophile cineaste and creator of definitive gangster flicks. These two decades encompass the classic polars of Jacques Becker, the best films of Lino Ventura (the French Bogart), the nouvelle vague (informally launched by a Louis Malle policier, Lift to the Scaffold, starring Ventura), and Godard's subversion of the genre in Breathless. »

The Noteworthy: "Art of the Real", Remembering Resnais, "Pulverizing Plots"

5 March 2014 6:20 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

The Film Society of Lincoln Center have unveiled their incredible lineup for the forthcoming "Art of the Real" series, which includes work from Corneliu Porumboiu, Robert Greene, Thom Andersen, James Benning, and more:

"The thin and often blurry line between fact and fiction will be prodded in the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s revamped Art of the Real, a two-week series (April 11-26) dedicated to an expansive definition of nonfiction filmmaking."

 For The New York Times, Dave Kehr remembers Alain Resnais:

"Mr. Resnais had a full head of white hair that the French newspaper Le Monde said he had sported for so long that one could forget he was ever young. He exhibited a youthful energy well into his 80s and was working on drafts of his next project from his hospital bed when he died, the producer Jean-Louis Livi said.

Despite the serious nature of his films, »

Alain Resnais, French Filmmaker, Dies At 91

3 March 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Alain Resnais, the famed French director, died late Saturday in Paris, France at the age of 91.

Resnais first made his stamp in film history with his 1959 film, Hiroshima Mon Amour, which continues to be hailed as one of the best films ever made. Resnais’ career, which includes Night and Fog (1955), a documentary on the Holocaust, Last Year at Marienbad (1961), and Wild Grass (2009), spanned over half a century.

His last film, Life of Riley (Aimer, boire et chanter), premiered last month at the Berlin Film Festival where it won the Silver Bear Alfred Bauer Prize for introducing new perspectives into film. Resnais is also known for influencing a new generation of filmmakers, from the French New Wave to David Lynch.

“When people ask me why I make films, I always answer that ‘je tourne pour voir comment ça tourne,’ I make films to see how films are made. I’m proud of that phrase. »

Alain Resnais snubbed at 2014 Oscars

2 March 2014 8:29 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Celebrated French director of Hiroshima Mon Amour and Last Year in Marienbad who died this weekend left out of In Memoriam section of Oscar ceremony

• Xan Brooks liveblogs the ceremony

• Full list of winners as they're announced

The Oscars failed to paid tribute to Alain Resnais, the celebrated French director of Night and Fog and Hiroshima Mon Amour, who died today. Perhaps because of the late-breaking nature of his death, they did not include Resnais in the traditional In Memoriam section to the film-maker.

Resnais was never nominated for an Oscar, though he did receive a string of awards from major international film festivals, including a lifetime achievement award from Cannes in 2009. His feature debut, Hiroshima Mon Amour, was a key early entry in the French new wave, competing at the 1959 Cannes film festival against the likes of François Truffaut's The 400 Blows and Jack Clayton's Room at the Top »
