"Kapò" and "The Missing Person" on DVD

13 April 2010 8:00 AM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

Once upon a time, one of the best film critics in any language, a Frenchman named Serge Daney, found himself at 17 inspired toward his vocation by a single line of writing -- about a film he'd never seen, and would never see.

The film was Gillo Pontecorvo's "Kapò" (1959), and the first reviewer, the firestarter, was none other than Jacques Rivette, already on his way to being one of the world's greatest and most fiercely principled filmmakers. The piece was in Cahiers du Cinéma in 1961. This is the line that changed Daney's life: "...Look however in 'Kapò,' the shot where [Emmanuelle] Riva commits suicide by throwing herself on electric barbed-wire: the man who decides at this moment to make a forward tracking shot to reframe the dead body -- carefully positioning the raised hand in the corner of the final framing -- this man is worthy of the most profound contempt. »

Don't miss

Bye-bye ‘Betty’ Before it collapsed into a festival of stunt casting, “Ugly Betty” was a great show. It introduced new faces such as America Ferrera, who won an Emmy, and reinvigorated the career of Vanessa Williams, who had a great role as frustrated fashionista Wilhelmina Slater. “Ugly Betty” started to go south when someone decided to make Rebecca Romijn the star — the show never recovered. So much for that. As Betty exits, »

Portman's Broadway Fears

5 February 2010 4:06 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Natalie Portman is desperate for another turn on Broadway - but fears inflated ticket prices have stifled creativity in theatres.

The Hollywood actress last appeared on the New York stage in 2001, in a production of Chekhov's The Seagull, alongside Meryl Streep, Kevin Kline and Philip Seymour Hoffman.

She also appeared on Broadway in 1997, playing the lead role in an adaptation of The Diary of Anne Frank.

But Portman fears she may not get another chance to tackle a gritty role in a play - because high prices mean many theatre-goers are unwilling to buy seats for less well-known productions.

She tells the New York Post, "It's gotten so expensive that the audiences you get aren't up for something experimental." »

A name to reckon with: Saoirse Ronan

22 January 2010 4:10 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Saoirse Ronan stole the film in Atonement, and now she's at it again with The Lovely Bones. Not bad for a 15-year-old who likes to hang out with her family dog and eat crisps

Saoirse Ronan turned 15 last April and runs on a different clock from the rest of us. She says she's glad she didn't start acting young, because it might have screwed her up and burnt her out. It's not as if she began acting at, say, three or something. She waited ­until she was eight, which was more sensible, because when you reach "our age" (she includes me in this) you at least know what you're doing, and in any case, things didn't start getting weird until a few years ago, with the Oscar nomination. "So I'm glad I'm only really starting now," she says firmly. "Because it means I can be seen as an actor as opposed to a child ­actor. »

The Departed: Those We Lost in 2009

13 January 2010 12:04 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

(from left) Michael Jackson, David Carradine, Bea Arthur, Ricardo Montalban, Karl Malden, Brittany Murphy and Patrick Swayze After losing the likes of Paul Newman, Bernie Mac, George Carlin, Estelle Getty, Roy Scheider and Heath Ledger in 2008 who would have ever thought 2009 would have also taken so many recognizable and loved names. Of course, these are the things we never plan on as once again I continue the tradition I started back in 2006, remembering those we lost over the past year. Like always I will remind you this is not a complete list, but to my knowledge it is a pretty good representation of those we lost from the world of entertainment... Pat Hingle (Died January 3, 2009) - Commissioner Gordon in the '80s and '90s series of Batman movies. Died from Myelodysplasia (blood cancer).

Ricardo Montalban (Died January 14, 2009) - Played the memorable role of Khan in Star Trek - The »
