30 March 2015 7:48 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, and Tom Stockman

The Birds screens at Schlafly Bottleworks (7260 Southwest Ave.- at Manchester – Maplewood, Mo 63143)  Thursday, April 2nd at 7pm. It is a benefit for Helping Kids Together (more details about this event can be found Here)

This gives us a perfect excuse to re-run this top ten list from March of 2012. Alfred Hitchcock directed 54 feature films between 1925 and 1976, and here, according to We Are Movie Geeks, are his ten best:

Frenzy

Frenzy, Hitchcock’s next to last feature film from 1972, represented a homecoming of sorts since it was the first film completely shot in his native England since his silents and early ” talkies ” in the 1930’s. By dipping into the then somewhat new territory of serial killers, he took full advantage of the new cinema freedoms and truly earned his ‘ R ‘ MPAA rating. Perhaps ole’ ” Hitch ” wanted to give those young up-and-coming »

Attention, Filmmakers: Learn the Secrets of Hitchcock's Genius in 'Hitch20' Docu-Series

27 March 2015 10:34 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Watch: Title Sequences: The Leap from Alfred Hitchcock to David Fincher Filmmakers looking to strengthen their visual language skills should definitely take notes while watching the first season of BorgusFilms' "Hitch20," now streaming in its entirety on Youtube. Given the abundance of critical analysis that exists around the Master of Suspense's lengthy filmography, "Hitch20" takes a new and exciting approach to breaking down the movie icon's visual style -- by focusing exclusively on the twenty episodes of television Hitchcock personally directed. Most filmmakers are familiar with the visual compositions that makeup the shower scene in "Psycho" or the crop-duster chase in "North by Northwest," but what about the moments in various episodes of "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" that also detail Hitchcock's filmic language? Luckily "Hitch20" and its various special guests, including William C. Martell (screenwriter »

Wild Life (Vie sauvage) director Cédric Kahn Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

The night after the Us premiere of Benoît Jacquot's 3 Hearts (3 Coeurs) starring Charlotte Gainsbourg, Chiara Mastroianni and Benoît Poelvoorde, I met up with Wild Life (Vie Sauvage) director Cédric Kahn for a conversation on his film, starring Mathieu Kassovitz and Céline Sallette. The suspense of Robert Bresson's Pickpocket mixes with Alfred Hitchcock's North By Northwest and turns into a "paranoiac world". Working with Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne, choices and his role in Axelle Ropert's Miss And The Doctors came up.

10 Movies Matthew Weiner Assigned As Required Viewing For The 'Mad Men' Cast & Crew

5 March 2015 12:33 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This spring, AMC's "Mad Men" will say goodbye, yet it's impact will be felt for a long time. Few shows would garner a major exhibition at Museum Of The Moving Image, but no one could possibly dispute that Matthew Weiner's examination of the men and women of the advertising world of the 1960s is one of them. Running in conjunction with the final episodes of the show will be a film series titled "Required Viewing: Mad Men's Movie Influences." The screenings will feature movies that Weiner had the cast and crew watch and were a key influence on the show. It's an interesting blend of titles from Billy Wilder's classic "The Apartment," to Alfred Hitchcock thrillers "North By Northwest" and "Vertigo," to David Lynch's head-spinning "Blue Velvet," as well as less celebrated films from the likes of Delbert Mann and Jean Negulesco.

10 Films That Inspired Mad Men, According to Matthew Weiner

5 March 2015 6:22 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As we approach the conclusion of Mad Men, the show's creator Matthew Weiner is opening up about what inspired the series. In addition to the show being canonized at museums across America, Weiner will appear at the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens on March 20 for a conversation about the ten films that he says influenced the show and, according to the museum's curator, "should be required viewing for fans of the show as well as its creative team." Below are Weiner's descriptions of all ten films. North by Northwest This film became an important influence on the pilot because it was shot in New York City, right around the time the first episode takes place. While more overtly stylized than we wanted to imitate, we felt the low angles and contemporary feel were a useful reflection of our artistic mindset. I had studied the film in depth »

Examining the Christopher Nolan backlash

23 February 2015 10:33 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Another Oscars season, and Christopher Nolan is overlooked again. With Interstellar getting a mixed reaction, we look at the Nolan backlash.

This article contains a spoiler for the ending of Interstellar.

In case you missed it, the Oscars were this past weekend and Birdman was the big winner. The Academy’s choice to award Alejandro González Iñárritu's fever dream was a genuine shock, with Boyhood the running favourite for many months. Nonetheless, some things never change, and in that vein it's certainly a non-surprise the Academy also hardly noticed the most ambitious blockbuster of 2014: the Christopher Nolan space epic, Interstellar. Indeed, I use the phrase "non-surprise", because how could it be a winner when it was only nominated for the bare minimum of five Oscars in technical categories that are reserved as consolation prizes?

This is by all means par for the course with a film that has »

The Bride Wore Black | Blu-Ray Review

17 February 2015 5:00 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Nearly two decades into a career that has since spanned nearly seven, Jeanne Moreau had already worked under the direction of Godard, Malle, Welles, Antonioni, Demy, Ophüls, Frankenheimer and Buñuel, among others, by the time she collaborated again with François Truffaut, who had previously helped make her a star with Jules and Jim. Their third collaboration (the first being 400 Blows), The Bride Wore Black, a psycho-thriller inspired by the work of his hero Alfred Hitchcock again put her in the spotlight, this time as a vengeful seductress to which Quentin Tarantino and Uma Thurman’s Bride of Kill Bill is much indebted to (though the homage crazed auteur claims to have never seen the film). With incredible bipolar turns, Moreau plays Julie Kohler, a widow on a mission to take revenge on the five men (including Claude Rich, Michel Bouquet, Michael Lonsdale, Daniel Boulanger and Charles Denner) responsible for the death of her husband. »

Editors Guild Selects 75 Best Edited Films of All Time

4 February 2015 8:26 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Now this is a list that could result in a lot of fascinating dissection and thanks to HitFix it comes to our attention almost three years after it was originally released back in 2012, celebrating the Motion Picture Editors Guild's 75th anniversary. Over at HitFix, Kris Tapley asks, "Is this news to anyone elsec" Um, yes, I find it immensely interesting and a perfect starting point for anyone looking to further explore the art of film editing. In an accompanying article we get the particulars concerning what films were eligible and how films were to be considered: In our Jan-feb 12 issue, we asked Guild members to vote on what they consider to be the Best Edited Films of all time. Any feature-length film from any country in the world was eligible. And by "Best Edited," we explained, we didn't just mean picture; sound, music and mixing were to be considered as well. »

What is the best-edited film of all time according to those who do the job?

3 February 2015 8:43 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A random bit of researching on a Tuesday night led me to something I didn't know existed: The Motion Picture Editors Guild's list of the 75 best-edited films of all time. It was a feature in part celebrating the Guild's 75th anniversary in 2012. Is this news to anyone else? I confess to having missed it entirely. Naturally, I had to dig in. What was immediately striking to me about the list — which was decided upon by the Guild membership and, per instruction, was considered in terms of picture and sound editorial as opposed to just the former — was the most popular decade ranking. Naturally, the 1970s led with 17 mentions, but right on its heels was the 1990s. I wouldn't have expected that but I happen to agree with the assessment. Thelma Schoonmaker's work on "Raging Bull" came out on top, an objectively difficult choice to dispute, really. It was so transformative, »

Paul Thomas Anderson reveals his favourite movies

25 January 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

In late 2014, Paul Thomas Anderson's latest film Inherent Vice - a psychedelic dive into the La of the past- screened at at a special BAFTA preview with the director on hand to take part in a post-film Q&A.

Ably marshalled by film critic Mark Kermode, the discussion touched on the director's Thomas Pynchon adaptation and his collaborations with Joaquin Phoenix and composer Johnny Greenwood. Perhaps most interesting of all, however, was Anderson talking about his all-time favourite movie.

When asked by Kermode to choose, Anderson replied quickly with "The Treasure of Sierra Madre. There's no competition, it's the best," before hesitating to ponder the merits of Alfred Hitchcock's North by Northwest.

"This is the game that's so f**king maddening," he said. "On the drive home you're like, no it's not Treasure of Sierra Madre its North by Northwest, it's Something Wild, it's Repo Men. The lists are so long. »

Weekend Rock Question: What's the Best Action Movie of All Time?

9 January 2015 1:25 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Taken 3 hits theaters this weekend and it's tracking surprisingly well despite extremely negative reviews and a general sense of fatigue with the franchise. Unlike the previous two films, it doesn't take place in a foreign country and nobody gets kidnapped. This time around, Liam Neeson is on the run from authorities who believe he killed his wife. Just try to imagine an inferior version of The Fugitive.

Now we have a question for you: What is the best action movie of all time? Feel free to go for a »
