James Schamus Talks ‘Indignation,’ Adapting Philip Roth, Cinematic Canons, and More

27 July 2016 10:45 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

For all his experience as a producer and writer — most notably as the head of Focus Features, and most specifically as a longtime associate of Ang Lee — it was an odd choice on James Schamus‘ part to make a directorial debut in his late ’50s — and especially by adapting Philip Roth, whose psychologically dense prose, to name but one thing, has stifled those attempting book-to-screen translations. But no matter the author’s typically precise and internalized perspective, the text in question, Indignation, should be an easier work to slide into, in some part because its ’50s-college setting creates an atmosphere that could easily be brought to cinema. Here’s the good news: to view Schamus’ own Indignation is to again witness an understanding of time and place.

Even better was the act of interviewing him. The extent of Schamus’ experience and knowledge — it’s only so often you interview someone »

Scott Reviews The Rainer Werner Fassbinder Collection [Arrow Video Blu-ray Review]

28 April 2016 4:08 PM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

It’s no real secret that we’re reaching a tipping point with home video. Streaming is proving a better and better option for the casual consumer every day, and even the cinephile dollar, which has rather successfully driven home video decisions for the past couple of years, has such services as Hulu, Fandor, Mubi, and – soon – FilmStruck vying for their attention. Physical distributors have subsequently doubled down on their most successful and acclaimed models. Criterion is going big on new-to-disc, big international titles with new restorations (Brighter Summer Day, Paris Belongs to Us, A Touch of Zen) and lavish new editions of American classics (The New World, Dr. Strangelove). Kino is investing in silent classics (Fantomas, The Phantom of the Opera, Diary of a Lost Girl) while diversifying to include more American studio titles. Masters of Cinema is going into deep specialty stuff with an Early Murnau box and Edvard Munch. »

The Stillness of ‘A Brighter Summer Day’ and Surrealist Logic of ‘Paris Belongs to Us’

29 March 2016 12:07 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

As a supplement to our Recommended Discs weekly feature, Peter Labuza regularly highlights notable recent home-video releases with expanded reviews. See this week’s selections below.

History is a misremembered lyric in Edward Yang’s four-hour Bildungsroman, as A Brighter Summer Day bridges a young boy’s personal turmoil with the larger politics of 1960 Taiwan. The young Si’r struggles in night school, attempting to avoid the teen gang violence between the island locals and Mainland transplants from the 1949 exodus. While Yang’s insistence on master shots might place him in later traditions of art cinema, this work’s novelistic unveiling of plot recalls the humanists of the 1950s like Satyajit Ray. Yang is a storyteller first and foremost, and, unlike Taiwanese New Wave counterpart Hou Hsiao-hsien, his frames speak directly and emotionally to the characters involved. These shots never pose an ambiguity as to what or where the »

Paris Belongs to Us

15 March 2016 12:10 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Director Jacques Rivette just passed away back in January. There's more interest lately in his 12-hour opus Out 1, but if you'll settle for just 2.5 hours, this unique early New Wave feature will take you inside Rivette's world of artists, students, and refugees from political persecution, all in conflict in a sunny Paris of 1958. It's just as revolutionary as an early Godard or Truffaut, but in a style all Rivette's own. Paris Belongs to Us Blu-ray The Criterion Collection 802 1961 / B&W / 1:37 flat Academy / 141 min. / available through The Criterion Collection / Paris nous appartient / Street Date March 8, 2016 / 39.95 Starring Betty Schneider, François Maistre, Giani Esposito, Françoise Prévost, Daniel Crohem, Jean-Claude Brialy, Jean-Marie Robain, Jean Martin.

Criterion Collection: Paris Belongs to Us | Blu-ray Review

8 March 2016 10:55 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

For the first time in the Us, Jacques Rivette’s 1961 directorial debut, Paris Belongs to Us is available thanks to an accomplished new restoration from Criterion. A neglected title associated with the same crew of vibrant auteurs eventually known as the Nouvelle Vague of the late 1950s and early 1960s, the Rivette’s thunder was stolen by more famous films from critics turned filmmakers Jean-Luc Godard, Claude Chabrol, and Francois Truffaut (even though it technically went into production before several of theirs). The initial lackluster response explains Rivette’s slower rise to notability, his particular methods and idiosyncrasies eventually embraced nearly a decade later when items like Mad Love (1969) and the monolithic Out 1 (1971), the legendary near thirteen hour production, were released.

Note that if you’re looking to support the site, every purchase you make through the links below helps us and is greatly appreciated.

The Forbidden Room (Guy Maddin and Evan Johnson)

Dense and lacking the playful quality of his more straightforward work, this represents a new multi-narrative direction for Maddin, and a kind of rabbit hole. Working within the art world verses the film world, Maddin’s work, style and influences have a tremendous amount of power applicable to cinema within the space of a gallery installation. Night Mayor, his first collaboration with the Nfb, fictionalized the tension between the Nfb’s mission and government controls, »

99 Homes (Ramin Bahrani)

With 2012’s At Any Price and this year’s 99 Homes, Bahrani has twice returned to the festival that launched his career, presenting the evolution of those themes.

Locarno Blog. (Three Reasons For) Remembering Rivette

The Notebook is the North American home for Locarno Film Festival Artistic Director Carlo Chatrian's blog. Chatrian has been writing thoughtful blog entries in Italian on Locarno's website since he took over as Director in late 2012, and now you can find the English translations here on the Notebook as they're published. The Locarno Film Festival will be taking place August 3 - 13. Jacques Rivette in Locarno in 1991 when he received the Pardo d’onore. © Festival del film Locarno 1. Writing as a filmmaker “The only true criticism of a film is another film,” wrote Jacques Rivette, commenting on Ingmar Bergman’s Sommarlek (Summer Interlude) in 1958. He was making his intentions quite clear, and indeed his colleagues of the time recall how he was the first to be sure he would be a filmmaker. So a film cannot be explained in words, but Rivette still tried to put into words his own adventures as a spectator. »

Bridge of Spies (Steven Spielberg)

Tom Hanks has a cold, and he needs to save America. A natural follow-up to Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln in its immersion into nitpicky political discussion, Bridge of Spies also distinguishes itself with a wittier, frequently downright sarcastic screenplay (mostly courtesy, one imagines, of the Coen brothers), more agile camerawork (the ten-minute opening jaunt through Mark Rylance’s Brooklyn morning has been a justified source of attention), and a different kind of lead »

Movie Poster of the Week: The Posters of Jacques Rivette

29 January 2016 3:03 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Above: French poster for Paris Belongs to Us (Jacques Rivette, France, 1960).Over the years I have often wanted to write about the films of Jacques Rivette, but I have always been disappointed by the quality both of the posters for many of his films and of the scans available for even the better designs. With the sad news that Rivette has left us this morning at the age of 87—so soon after the triumphant resurrection of his magnum opus Out 1—I feel I should at least showcase the handful of posters that do this great director justice.The best Rivette posters are top-loaded at the beginning of his career. His adaptation of Denis Diderot’s La religieuse, starring Anna Karina, seems to have inspired the most varied work (so much in fact that I will save most of it for a later post). And there are a few other terrific designs, »

Jacques Rivette: Nouvelle Vague director with a reputation for lengthy films Photo: Unifrance

A French film director who was an integral part of the French New Wave (or Nouvelle Vague), has died in Paris at the age of 87.

Jacques Rivette’s celebrated films include Paris Belongs To Us, Celine And Julie Go Boating in 1974 and the four-hour La Belle Noiseuse with Emmanuelle Béart, Michel Piccoli and Jane Birkin in 1991 (dealing with an elderly artist and his creative rebirth). He worked alongside the likes of François Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard and Claude Chabrol in whose apartment he shot his first short film Le Coup de Berger. He was also a writer with Cahiers du Cinema magazine and assumed the editor’s chair from 1963 to 1965.

He borrowed money from the magazine to fund his first feature, Paris Belongs To Us, which was released in 1961. Its plot revolved around a group of actors »

French New Wave Director Jacques Rivette Dies at 87; Explore a Late Master’s Work

29 January 2016 8:26 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If I could properly describe the experience of discovering Jacques Rivette‘s films, I’d compare it to entering a room — a big one; sometimes a very big one — in which a conspiratorial game of deception and obfuscation is already underway between a group of handsome men and beautiful women. (Mostly the latter; sometimes only the latter.) While most directors ask you to sit and observe, you’re here invited to nestle somewhere between spectator and active participant, a patron whose close observation compensates for (or enhances) the fact that the plot doesn’t make total sense and associations between players requires some inference. By the time it ends, you’ll (ideally) come away with, if nothing else, the sense that something thoroughly, almost aggressively different has taken place — a mix of “well, what happened there?” with the desire to enter once more. And then again, and then again, and then again. »

Remembering Jacques Rivette: 6 Essential Films Now Streaming Online

29 January 2016 7:47 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Cinephiles are in mourning today over the news that Jacques Rivette, the cerebral and visionary French New Wave director and Cahiers du Cinema editor-in-chief, has passed away at the age of 87. For nearly five decades, between his bold debut in 1961 with "Paris Belongs to Us" and his last feature in 2009, Rivette was responsible for some of the most challenging and medium-defying works (his movies often blended film and theater in a study and critique of visual storytelling), most notably the 13-hour "Out 1." As countless retrospectives and tributes continue to pour in from around the world, there could be no better way to honor Rivette's legacy today than by streaming one of his great movies. Fortunately, Svod platforms like Fandor and Hulu have a selection of some of his best and most essential works. Don't hesitate to give any of these titles a go. Synopses pulled from the streaming providers. »

Jacques Rivette, Cerebral French New Wave Director, Dies at 87

29 January 2016 6:05 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

French New Wave director Jacques Rivette, who often explored the blurry line between reality and fantasy in a career spanning six decades and more than 20 features, died Friday at his home in Paris. He was 87.

Rivette’s death was confirmed in a tweet by French culture minister Fleur Pellerin, who called him “one of the greatest filmmakers of intimacy and impatient love.” The director reportedly had battled Alzheimer’s disease for several years.

Avec Jacques Rivette disparaît l'un des plus grands cinéastes de l'intime et de l'impatience amoureuse. C'est un jour de profonde tristesse.

Fleur Pellerin (@fleurpellerin) January 29, 2016

In his films, Rivette, perhaps the least known of the major French New Wave directors, frequently took a semi-experimental approach to narrative. The films were partially improvised by the actors, and their prolonged running times allowed auds to wander around freely in their deliberately stagy worlds.

Three-hour-plus titles were the norm for the helmer, »
