TCM Oscar Homage Kicked Off Today: Is Bigger Always Better?

1 February 2016 10:33 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Ben-Hur' 1959 with Stephen Boyd and Charlton Heston: TCM's '31 Days of Oscar.' '31 Days of Oscar': 'Lawrence of Arabia' and 'Ben-Hur' are in, Paramount stars are out Today, Feb. 1, '16, Turner Classic Movies is kicking off the 21st edition of its “31 Days of Oscar.” While the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is being vociferously reviled for its “lack of diversity” – more on that appallingly myopic, self-serving, and double-standard-embracing furore in an upcoming post – TCM is celebrating nearly nine decades of the Academy Awards. That's the good news. The disappointing news is that if you're expecting to find rare Paramount, Universal, or Fox/20th Century Fox entries in the mix, you're out of luck. So, missing from the TCM schedule are, among others: Best Actress nominees Ruth Chatterton in Sarah and Son, Nancy Carroll in The Devil's Holiday, Claudette Colbert in Private Worlds.

10 Great European Neo-Noir Films

21 January 2016 11:32 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This month, "The American Friend," a classic from German director Wim Wenders that until now was probably lesser known than his touchstones "Paris, Texas" and "Wings of Desire," comes to the Criterion Collection. As you'll read below, it's a grubby little story of antiheroes and their patsies and we, predictably, adore it, and while its particular mix of independent gritty '70s aesthetic, European setting and director, American star and Patricia Highsmith source material makes it feel highly singular, it in fact belongs to a long, packed tradition: the European neo-noir. If the precise definition of film noir is a consistent cause for debate, the categorization "neo-noir" is even looser. It's generally accepted to apply only to the post-noir "proper" heyday (which ran from the early '40s to the late '50s, or in filmic terms, from "The Maltese Falcon" to "Touch of Evil.") Classic noir encompasses elements »

Magician: The Astonishing Life And Work Of Orson Welles – The Review

7 January 2016 9:49 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Not so very long ago I had a co-worker who described himself as a movie geek, film fan, cinema addict, what have you.  He talked about film as if he knew all about it.  I asked him one day what he thought of Orson Welles. His reply?

“I don’t think about Orson Welles, he was old and fat, now he’s dead, what am I supposed to think about him?”

Needless to say I never really talked to this person again, who shall remain nameless.  Of course the fact that he was an egocentric, arrogant, narcissistic weasel didn’t help matters.  (He claimed to have a small part in Tombstone, I have seen that movie several times, never spotted him, by the way…)

I simply cannot fathom the arrogance of someone dismissing, so casually one of the greatest film makers who ever lived.  I have been fascinated, obsessed even, »
