"I Deal In Nightmares": Watch Vintage 20-Minute Interview With Alfred Hitchcock

3 October 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We’re finally in the spooky month of October, the time of year where TV networks of all stripes start broadcasting horror films. One filmmaker whose work is a staple of the annual celebration of the macabre is the master of suspense himself, Alfred Hitchcock. Earlier this week, a 20-minute interview from 1966 with the British director surfaced online and it not only showcases Hitchcock’s deadpan wit, but also has some great quotes like, “I deal in nightmares.” Although many pretend otherwise, the migration of high-caliber, world-class filmmakers like Steven SoderberghDavid Fincher and Jane Campion to the small screen isn’t entirely without precedent. During the same time period that he released films like “To Catch a Thief,” “Vertigo,” “North by Northwest” and “Psycho,” Hitchcock helmed 17 episodes for his eponymous TV show, “Alfred Hitchcock Presents,” between 1955 and 1961. Indeed, in the interview Hitchcock says that he applied some of the lessons. »

21 August 2014 10:01 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Any Hitchcock fan has no doubt looked carefully while watching one of his movies in order to spot his infamous cameos. Hitchcock’s earlier cameos are especially hard to catch, and so Youtube user Morgan T. Rhys put together this video compiling every cameo Alfred Hitchcock ever made.

Hitchcock made a total of 39 self-referential cameos in his films over a 50 year period. Four of his films featured two cameo appearances (The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog UK), Suspicion, Rope, and Under Capricorn). Two recurring themes featured Hitchcock carrying a musical instrument, and using public transportation.

The films are as follows:

The Lodger (1927), Easy Virtue (1928), Blackmail (1929),Murder! (1930), The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934), The 39 Steps (1935),Sabotage (1936), Young and Innocent (1937), The Lady Vanishes (1938), Rebecca(1940), Foreign Correspondent (1940), Mr. & Mrs. Smith (1941), Suspicion (1941),Saboteur (1942), Shadow of a Doubt (1943), Lifeboat (1944), Spellbound (1945),Notorious (1946), The Paradine Case (1947), Rope (1948), Under Capricorn (1949),Stage Fright (1950), Strangers on a Train »

Film Review: 'To Catch a Thief'

7 August 2014 2:26 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆Desire in and of itself is artificial. According to cultural critic Slavoj Žižek, it is this that makes cinema "the ultimate pervert art. It doesn't give you what you desire, it tells you how to desire." To Catch a Thief (1955) is an iconic exposition of desire. Whether that be desire for the accoutrement of dress or interior design, the warped elegance of both Cary Grant and Grace Kelly or the idea of place as fantasy; the unreal pleasure dome of escape from memory that the South of France instils in us and ultimately ruins our future plans. It's a film that has been unfairly maligned as light and frothy as a sugary-sweet meringue; a minor work within the iconic canon of Hitchcock's grand, dramatic genre masterpieces.

10 Great Fireworks Scenes from Movies

4 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Happy 4th of July everyone! It's not hard to imagine that my favorite part about this holiday is the fireworks! I love lighting them up and watching them go off. I even attempted to make my own at one point… I'll never do that again. As a tribute to this patriotic American holiday celebrating our independence, I've put together a top 10 list of great fireworks scenes from the movies. 

The Sandlot

This is by far one of the most American 4th of July scenes ever put on film. You've got a group of kids playing baseball in the 1950s on the 4th of July. 

An American Tail

Behold, the Giant Mouse of Minsk! This scene is both thrilling and incredibly scary. It's such a cool fireworks scene though.

To Catch a Thief

Alfred Hitchcock was a filmmaking genius, and this scene features fireworks going on in the background as Cary Grant »

Grace of Monaco review: "What was Nicole Kidman thinking?"

2 June 2014 2:19 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Olivier Dahan; Screenwriter: Arash Amel; Starring: Nicole Kidman, Tim Roth, Paz Vega, Milo Ventimiglia, Parker Posey, Derek Jacobi, Frank Langella; Running time: 103 mins; Certificate: PG

There are countless missed opportunities in Grace of Monaco, a sponsorship deal with Ferrero Rocher being chief among them. Like the choccies doled out by that cheapnik ambassador, this portrait of Grace Kelly 'the royal years' aspires to refinement and class when, in reality, it's just an afternoon sugar buzz for bored housewives. No wonder the Cannes glitterati turned up their noses, but you don't have to be a connoisseur to know this is a pile of Nutella.

What was Nicole Kidman thinking? For one thing she is two decades too old to be playing Grace Kelly from the late '50s to early '60s (the star was only 26 when she went from Hollywood's High Society to the House of Grimaldi). Kidman does »

Cannes 2014: Grace of Monaco Review

15 May 2014 6:28 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Well, where to start? We already know the story: beautiful Philadelphian actress marries a Euro-trash prince and lives happily ever after, or at least until her tragic car accident, itself an ironic coda reminiscent of her most iconic film scene. But what we didn’t know is that Princess Grace single-handedly saved Monaco from outright war with evil France. Grace of Monaco is “a fictionalised account of real-life events”, but whereas Grace Kelly’s story looked like a fairytale, then this movie is Nancy Drew meets the Stepford Wives.

We first see Grace (Nicole Kidman, who has decided not to go for a vocal impersonation of the real Kelly, opting for something closer to Marilyn Monroe) on the set of To Catch A Thief, having just wrapped that notorious car ride scene. Cut to five years down the line and she’s a princess cum housefrau with two little kids »

Cannes Film Review: ‘Grace of Monaco’

14 May 2014 11:13 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The offscreen palace intrigue between “Grace of Monaco” director Olivier Dahan and his on-again off-again U.S. distributor Harvey Weinstein turns out to be far livelier than anything on screen in Dahan’s cardboard and frequently cornball melodrama about Grace Kelly’s bumpy transition from Hollywood to actual princess — and her (seemingly single-handed) saving of her embattled sovereign state from French annexation. Handsomely produced but as dramatically inert as star Nicole Kidman’s frigid cheek muscles, Dahan’s strained bid to recapture the critical and commercial success of his smash Edith Piaf biopic “La Vie en rose” is the sort of misbegotten venture no amount of clever re-editing could hope to improve. The decision to release the pic in France and other key Euro territories immediately following its opening-night Cannes berth reps a healthy gamble on Kidman’s drawing power against the summer blockbuster deluge.

Nicole Kidman’s ‘Grace of Monaco’ The Roast of Cannes

14 May 2014 11:07 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

In an intriguing parallel with her friend Naomi Watts, Nicole Kidman’s new royal biopic is the subject of critical derision. Just as Watts took the title role of Diana in the slammed Oliver Hirschbiegel helmer, Kidman’s Grace Of Monaco (aka Grace Kelly) raised some unintentional laughs at this morning’s press screening. With a Gala premiere opening Cannes 2014 later on and a solid history of heckling at the Festival the stage is set for a potential journalistic takedown.

The troubled production has been the topic of speculation for some months, with stories of arguments between director Olivier Dahan and producer Harvey Weinstein over the final cut and displeasure from the royal family of Monaco over the way events are depicted. In another development that draws further comparison with Diana, writers such as Stephen Dalton of The Hollywood Reporter have wondered how such an an innocuous affair was made »
