To Catch A Thief Saturday Morning at The Hi-Pointe

12 November 2014 5:48 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Do you want a leg or a breast?”

To Catch A Thief Screens Saturday November 15th at St. Louis’ fabulous Hi-Pointe Theater (1005 McCausland Ave., St. Louis, Mo) at 10:30am. This is a fundraiser for the Philanthropic Educational Organization (“P.E.O.”) which focuses its efforts on raising money for women’s education and supports an all-female college in Nevada, Missouri called Cottey College. 

You can read more about the organization at their website:  http://peointernational.org/

admission is $10.00

Squeezed in the middle of Hitchcock’s filmography, To Catch A Thief, is many times forgotten since it came out the year after Rear Window. Hitchcock also had greater success with his later films, Psycho, The Birds, North By Northwest, and Vertigo so this film is easily discarded when we compare it to his other works which is a shame because To Catch A Thief has many great things going for »

Listen: 1-Hour Masterclass With Paul Thomas Anderson At The New York Film Festival

28 October 2014 6:03 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Earlier this month, Paul Thomas Anderson's feverishly anticipated "Inherent Vice" (read our review here) made its debut at the New York Film Festival. In addition to screening the film for the first time anywhere in the world, organizers brought Anderson out for a masterclass, which we detailed at length right here. But if you want to hear the words from the man himself, now you can. Cory Everett snagged the audio from the talk and has posted it online. For the talk, Anderson brought a handful of clips from a wide range of films, television shows and music videos —"Police Squad!," Neil Young's "Journey Through the Past," Alex Cox's "Repo Man," Alfred Hitchcock's "North by Northwest," Quentin Tarantino's "Jackie Brown," Frank Capra's "The Bitter Tea of General Yen" and more— as a conduit through which to discuss "Inherent Vice." It's well worth a listen, »

Entertainment Geekly Mailbag: A serious attempt to explain movies about White Dude Problems

13 October 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

1999 will always be one of my favorite years for movies. This is partially because there were a lot of great movies released that year, but mainly because in 1999 I was in high school, and as we all know, the world was more important and less terrible when we were in high school. Last week, I took a look at which movies from 1999 had aged well, and asked which had aged poorly. The response was overwhelming, insofar as it's overwhelming that anyone likes American Beauty. However, one reader email in particular struck me as a launchpad for an important conversation. Here »

Curio: Andrew DeGraff's Movie Maps

7 October 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Alexa here with your fix of movie art. Philadelphia illustrator Andrew DeGraff has a way with cartography. He harnesses this skill to create unbelievably detailed movie maps.  He draws each location of a film in relation to all the others, and then traces the path of the protagonists, effectively capturing the action of each film from a bird's-eye view. Every map, like one below based on North by Northwest, is done my hand in pencil and guache, and takes hundreds of hours to complete. 

More favorites after the jump including Lord of the Rings and The Shining...

"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. »

Watch: Alfred Hitchcock And Tippi Hedren Talk 'The Birds' In Vintage Interviews

29 September 2014 1:18 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Released after of a string of timeless masterpieces—“Vertigo”, “North by Northwest” and “Psycho”—Alfred Hitchcock’s Bay Area Romance/Fowl Terror mash-up “The Birds” might not be as pitch-perfect as those three titles. However, the seamless romance-to-horror switcheroo during the second act, the decision not to use any non-diagetic music, and the screenplay refusing to explain the reason behind the sudden surge of pissed-off pigeons, were all original and daring touches back in 1963. Now you can learn more about the production of "The Birds" via a couple of vintage interviews with Hitchcock and star Tippi Hedren, conducted shortly after the film’s completion.  During the interview, Hitch, the personification of a Valium with a triple-chin, describes the intense prep work that went into the production, which made it easier to accomplish some of the complex special effects shots. He’s also perhaps the only human being in the history »

Ben Affleck Slays ‘Em As ‘Gone Girl’ Launches New York Film Festival And Marches Into Oscar Race

27 September 2014 1:01 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The latest stop on the Fall Festival circuit hit the Big Apple Friday night with the opening of the New York Film Festival, which boasts two World Premieres as its key draw for Awards Season attention. They include Warner Bros.Paul Thomas Anderson-directed Inherent Vice next Saturday, and of course Friday night’s unveiling of the much-awaited film adaptation of the best seller Gone Girl  from 20th Century Fox and New Regency which screened  at 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. to strong reaction from all reports. I wasn’t there, as I am in L.A. and have already seen most of what the Nyff is offering. A lot of it consists of retreads from other fests going as far back as Cannes (too many titles to mention), even Sundance (with the brilliant Whiplash). And Gone Girl was simultaneously screened for west coast awards pundits at 3 p.m. Pt »

FrightFest 2014: The Last Showing Part 4: Behind the Mask of an Icon – Robert Englund Interview

5 September 2014 6:09 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

“The truth is I’m just an old veteran character actor” says Robert Englund as we sit down to discuss The Last Showing, his latest foray into genre cinema. To find one standing opposite the genial and softly-spoken man who devoured so many hours of sleep by searing to the mind the menacing image of claws piercing first the mattress and then the torso, can only be described as ‘surreal.’ As these words flow onto the page there is a realisation that the reason horror cinema earns our affection was so eloquently phrased by Emily Berrington when she said, “There is a desire to feel that tiny part of your mind that otherwise doesn’t get tapped into.” By touching our sensibilities in a way that we crave, these terrifying encounters remain some of the most evocative and defining moments of the human experience, and therein cinema is our fix. »

Watch: CineFix Picks the 100 Most Iconic Shots in Cinema of All-Time

4 September 2014 3:40 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

While the #CinephilePhoto trend on Twitter is highlighting a lot of favorite shots from filmmakers and fans alike, CineFix has decided to collect what they they are the 100 Most Iconic Shots of All-Time. They start all the way in the past with some of the earliest motion pictures, moving through iconic silent films very quickly until things move very quickly beginning with Citizen Kane. Now this isn't entirely meant to be definitive, though it strives for some objectivity by including well-regarded films of history like North by Northwest and The Wizard of Oz as well as pop culture icons like Raiders of the Lost Ark and more. Here's CineFix's picks for the 100 Most Iconic Shots of All-Time (via Movies.com): While I'm not sure I entirely agree with inclusions like Pretty Woman, The Notebook or Some Like It Hot, despite the timeless nature of the latter comedy in cinema's history, »

Event Report – The Big Picture: Hitchcock! Live!

3 September 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Every once in a while, you’ll hear the details of an event that sounds so, so awesome, that it takes you a moment to properly process what you just heard. Such was the case when my friend Monica invited me to join her for what was being billed as “The Big Picture: Hitchcock!” – A tribute to the great Alfred Hitchcock, one of the greatest directors of all time, and more importantly a tribute to all the wonderful music that has been created for his masterpieces. The concert took place at the legendary Hollywood Bowl theater on August 31st, 2014 with composer David Newman (son of the great Alfred Newman) leading the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra to perform live music from select scenes of 12 Hitchcock pictures.

The performers took to the stage to the narration that opens the record Alfred Hitchcock Presents “Music To Be Murdered By,” which immediately set the fun »

See Reddit users’ favorite movie from each year

2 September 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Throughout the summer, an admin on the r/movies subreddit has been leading Reddit users in a poll of the best movies from every year for the last 100 years called 100 Years of Yearly Cinema. The poll concluded three days ago, and the list of every movie from 1914 to 2013 has been published today.

Users were asked to nominate films from a given year and up-vote their favorite nominees. The full list includes the outright winner along with the first two runners-up from each year. The list is mostly a predictable assortment of IMDb favorites and certified classics, but a few surprise gems have also risen to the top of the crust, including the early experimental documentary Man With a Movie Camera in 1929, Abel Gance’s J’Accuse! in 1919, the Fred Astaire film Top Hat over Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps in 1935, and Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing over John Ford’s »

Have a look at the new one-sheet for Nacho Vigalondo's thriller Open Windows. His film will be in select theaters on November 7. If you would like to see it earlier, there will be an early VOD release on October 2.Our Managing Editor, Peter Martin, caught the film at SXSW and concluded his rave review with these thoughts..."Somewhat similar to Cary Grant in North by Northwest, forcibly inebriated and careening down a mountain road toward certain death, Open Windows zooms along as though it's out of control, dashing from here to there in a heedless race to the closing credits. But Nacho Vigalondo is not drunk at the helm, and his film only appears to be out of control. Open Windows thrills and chills, and...

Video of the Day: See Every Alfred Hitchcock Cameo

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 »

National Parks May Boost Filming Fees

20 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When filmmakers shot Fox Searchlight’s upcoming “Wild” at Crater Lake National Park in Oregon, officials could not have been more helpful, says the movie’s location manager, Nancy Haecker.

What a contrast from the stereotype of government bureaucracy — and from issues with filming at national parks in the past when, for example, Alfred Hitchcock was unable to shoot the climatic chase scene in “North by Northwest” on Mount Rushmore, getting his shots instead on a studio mockup.

But now there’s a new concern: cost. The U.S. National Park Service and Dept. of the Interior are weighing a proposal to increase filming fees, and in some cases, double them.

The MPAA says the increases aren’t justified, and could discourage filming on federal lands. More than 50 lawmakers signed a letter urging Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell and Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack not to boost fees.

A Brief Look at the History of Movie Titles & Opening Credits

18 August 2014 7:02 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

One year ago, Nora Thos and Damian Perez released the following short film taking a look at the history of movie titles and today it was brought to my attention thanks to Slashfilm. While only touching on the art of movie titles in broad strokes, it's an interesting look at what the short calls "The Film Before the Film", covering enough territory and offering enough details to make it easy for you to being doing a little research of your own. The film obviously touches on the work of Saul Bass (North by Northwest, The Man with the Golden Arm), Maurice Binder (Dr. No), Pablo Ferro (Dr. Strangelove), Greenberg Associates' work on the original Superman titles, Kyle Cooper (Seven, Mimic), Digital Domain (Fight Club) and the inventive work of Kook Ewo for Splice as well as plenty of earlier work in film from Thomas Edison to the Rko titles before »

Out with Flynn, part 2 by Anne-Katrin Titze

16 August 2014 12:57 PM, PDT | eyeforfilm.co.uk | See recent eyeforfilm.co.uk news »

Errol Flynn (Kevin Kline) Beverly Aadland (Dakota Fanning) toast in The Last of Robin Hood: "And behind this facade of strength is actually someone who is thinking twice."

We continue our conversation with directors Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland, discussing Stanley Kubrick's Lolita connection to Errol Flynn, costume designer Orry-Kelly's role beyond the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Bette Davis and Ethel Barrymore in Hollywood, and the palettes in Otto Preminger's Bonjour Tristesse, Richard Quine's Strangers When We Meet and Alfred Hitchcock's North By Northwest. Kevin Kline, Dakota Fanning and Susan Sarandon with Matt Kane, Bryan Batt and Max Casella star in The Last Of Robin Hood.

Anne-Katrin Titze: When I spoke with Jane Pollard and Iain Forsyth about 20,000 Days On Earth, which is their documentary on Nick Cave, little did I expect that your film and theirs would have something in common. And that is Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita. »

1,000 Classics and Cult Hits to Be Restored for Home Entertainment

15 August 2014 2:04 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In a nondescript building in Burbank, Reliance MediaWorks has begun work on bringing a thousand films — some of them cult classics, many rarely seen for decades — back to life.

The list is wildly eclectic, ranging from classics of world cinema (“The Bicycle Thief,” “Notorious,” “The Third Man”) to cult hits (“Andy Warhol’s Dracula” and “Andy Warhol’s Frankenstein”) to early Bruce Lee, Hammer horror films, exploitation titles and foreign films. Almost every film on the list has a recognizable actor or director, but many have never been released for home viewing.

Rmw hopes that the new releases will not only bring life back to audience favorites, but also introduce the works to new eyes.

“What makes this collection of movies extremely unique is that many of the films have never been released on DVD, let alone Blu-Ray,” said Naresh Malik, president of media and creative services. “Anyone who sees »

Watch Every Alfred Hitchcock Cameo in 5 Minutes

15 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Earlier this week, Alfred Hitchcock celebrated a birthday. Rather, fans celebrated on his behalf. He would have been 115 years old. Many fans have been passing around this video published as a college project in 2012 by Morgan T. Rhys. Simply titled “Every Alfred Hitchcock Cameo,” the video shows exactly that: Alfred Hitchcock’s cameos from The Lodger to Stage Fright and beyond. Many cinefiles can recount for you his cameos in North by Northwest or on a newspaper in Lifeboat, but this video shows all the lesser known and slightly more subtle appearances he made in his own movies. Watch for yourself and enjoy Hitchcock making himself one of the most infamous extras of all-time.

"Watch Every Alfred Hitchcock Cameo in 5 Minutes" was originally published on Film School Rejects for our wonderful readers to enjoy. It is not intended to be reproduced on other websites. If you aren't reading this in your favorite RSS reader or on Film »

Hitchcock Takes Over Paramount and State This Week

12 August 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

By Frank Calvillo

Few other filmmakers lived to see their name become synonymous with a specific brand of filmmaking quite like Alfred Hitchcock did. This month, as part of their Summer Classic Film Series, the Paramount and Stateside Theaters have lined up a weeklong tribute to Hitchcock featuring the likes of Psycho and The Birds, among other gems from the master of suspense; each of which, regardless of how many prior viewings, remains a thrilling pleasure to see on the big screen.

"We're playing the hits, and a few B-sides too," proclaims Paramount's official site in describing Hitchcock week. Hits is right with North by Northwest, Vertigo and Notorious also scheduled to screen, while "second-tier" Hitchcock classics Rebecca and Strangers on a Train (screening the following week) also make appearances. However, it's the four interestingly chosen aforementioned B-sides that prove interesting highlights and really speak to Hitchcock's versatility as a filmmaker. »
