The films of Roman Polanski

28 December 2012 4:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A world of cruelty, where men are cold-blooded and women cold-hearted … The BFI begins a Roman Polanski retrospective – with extended runs of Repulsion and Chinatown – that showcases the director's fascinating pathology

Any hopes that the BFI's forthcoming retrospective – its second in less than a decade – will turn attention away from the glum key terms of Roman Polanski's life (the Kraków ghetto, Manson, statutory rape) back to the riches of his work are based on false reasoning and certain to be dashed. To watch Polanski's films is to be reminded of what produced their dazed brutality, those early experiences of the oppression of the weak that stole his innocence and distorted his sense of things. If ever there was a body of work on intimate terms with cruelty and domination, and steeped in a vision of men as cold-blooded and women as cold-hearted, this is it.

The Best of “Movie Poster of the Day”, Part 2

16 November 2012 12:36 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Above: 1999 Japanese poster for La jetée (Chris Marker, France, 1962). Designer: unknown.

This Sunday I will be posting my 366th post on my Movie Poster of the Day Tumblr, meaning that I have managed to keep up this endeavor for an entire year, not yet skipping a day. Back in early July I wrote about the blog and posted the 20 most popular (most liked and reblogged) posters to date. With the year anniversary approaching I thought I would do the same thing, tallying the 20 most popular posters of the past four months. Movie Poster of the Day’s viewership has grown exponentially in the interim and as of writing it has 56,964 followers, which blows my mind. You can scroll through the entire archive here.

The most popular poster of the past four months, and the second most popular of the entire year, was this Japanese B1 for La jetée, which I »

Weekly Poll Results: Best Roman Polanski Movie

7 November 2012 7:55 AM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Last week's poll was, somewhat surprisingly, another blow out. Roman Polanski's Chinatown easily topped all of his other films and came away victorious with 44% of the votes. Only Rosemary's Baby and The Pianist put up much of a fight, coming in at #2 and #3 respectively. The Ghost Writer and Repulsion both finished in a deadlock for fourth place, rounding out the top 5. The other remaining options didn't get much love, with his most recent film Carnage pulling up the rear. Do you agree with these results? 1. Chinatown -- 44.8% 2. Rosemary's Baby -- 23.6% 3. The Pianist -- 15.4% 4. The Ghost Writer -- 3.5% 4. Repulsion -- 3.5% 6. The Tenant -- 3.1% 7. Frantic -- 2.3% 8. Cul-de-Sac -- 1.9% 9. Knife in the Water -- 1.2% 10. Carnage -- 0.8%

Criterion Collection: Rosemary’s Baby | Blu-ray review

30 October 2012 9:45 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Just in time for Halloween, Criterion has remastered what’s long been culturally considered one of the most notable pieces of horror film making in cinematic history, the eerie classic, Rosemary’s Baby. Standing as not only the first adaptation of someone else’s material for auteur Roman Polanski, this would mark his first foray into Hollywood, and his final product still stands as template of the film industry’s far-reaching allure to achieve a European arthouse aesthetic successfully melded with mainstream pulp.

Still, to approach this classic title, (that’s become so deeply ingrained in our cultural syntax that nearly everyone knows what the titular baby is really synonymous with), as purely a genre exercise modulated simply to invoke fear and unease, would be a mistake. What makes the film transcend showy thrills is how it plunders into our more collectively subconscious fears, giving us a kitchen sink melodrama »

Dark Blood - first look review

1 October 2012 6:07 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Nineteen years after the death of its star, River Phoenix, George Sluizer's fragmentary, uneven and odd film was finally unveiled at the Netherlands film festival

Nineteen years after abandoning Dark Blood when his star River Phoenix died of a drugs overdose shortly before the end of the project, Dutch director George Sluizer has finally completed the film. "Complete" in this case is a relative term. The movie unveiled in Utrecht this week came with a preface in which the director warns us that we are about to watch an "unfinished" work. He likens the movie now salvaged to a chair with three legs. "The fourth leg will always be missing but the chair will be able to stand upright."

Dark Blood is fragmentary, uneven and downright odd in parts but it's also has huge curiosity value. The director's solution for bridging the considerable gaps is to read out descriptions of what is missing. »

Movies are Apparently Dead Again, Rian Johnson Intros 'Looper' and Russell is Honored Oscar Links

28 September 2012 2:49 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

To begin, in not-so-Oscar-y news, Andrew O'Hehir at Salon asks "Is movie culture dead?" To this I say, "No, we all just need to stop focusing on how many superhero movies there are and how many 'other' movies there are that are actually worth seeing." I include myself in this general "we"... The problem I see is that we always seem to define movie culture by what Hollywood is churning out, which has become an admitted lost cause, but we now have more avenues for more great films than ever and we need to learn to appreciate it, even though television has certainly added a new wrinkle of quality to the fold. Continuing on, O'Hehir's argument stems from the kicking off of the New York Film Festival and A.O. Scott at the New York Times also delved into the subject, wondering if the Nyff has sold out to bigger budget »

Movie Poster of the Week: The Posters of the First New York Film Festival

21 September 2012 4:15 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Above: Larry Rivers’ poster for the first New York Film Festival.

With the New York Film Festival celebrating its 50th edition next week I thought I’d look back on the very first festival, 49 years ago, in 1963. Whereas this year’s festival has a main slate of 33 films (as well as abundant sidebars) the inaugural event, programmed by Richard Roud and Amos Vogel, had only 21 features and a selection of shorts. The festival opened—on a Tuesday evening, September 10th, 1963—with a now-classic but then ill-received Buñuel, The Extermining Angel, and closed with a film and a director that have been all but forgotten: Dragées au poivre (Sweet and Sour), a French-Italian comedy with an all-star cast, directed by one Jacques Baratier.

Of the 21 selections—handpicked by Roud and Vogel as the year’s best—only six (masterpieces by Buñuel, Ozu, Olmi, Kobayashi, Polanski and Resnais) are currently available on DVD in the Us, »

About Elly – review

13 September 2012 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Iranian director Asghar Farhadi's confident understanding of group dynamics underpins a gripping psychological drama

The colossal success of A Separation has triggered an interest in director Asghar Farhadi's back catalogue and now his previous work, from 2009, has come to the UK. It is a really absorbing picture, powerfully acted, disturbing and suspenseful. Like A Separation it challenges the sexual politics of contemporary Iran and further shows how different Farhadi is from the older generation of Iranian masters such as Kiarostami and Makhmalbaf. The points of reference for About Elly are probably more European: Polanski's Knife in the Water, Antonioni's L'Avventura; and Farhadi also has Michael Haneke's beady eye for the dynamics and symptoms of group guilt.

A group of friends – well-to-do professionals from Tehran – have gone on holiday together to the seaside, with their young children. Farhadi shows that this is a trip they have organised quite impulsively: when they arrive, »

Olympics 2012 Film Part 5 – Poland, Romania, Finland, Japan, China & Australia

3 September 2012 3:46 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

I was a sceptic; I thought it could not be done. I did not believe that London could host such an important global event, let alone pull it off with such grandiose confidence. But now the Olympics are over and to be honest, I don’t want it to end. Particularly considering my last images may be that of Jessie J ruining Queen, or Liam Gallagher proving he needs Noel. But with Britain standing 3rd in the medal rankings, we can be proud of our athletes’ efforts. Whether it was handball, hockey or dressage, my eyes were opened to the magic of the Olympics and I’m sad to see them go. So why not cling on for a little bit longer and join me as I attempt to blur the realms of Film and the Summer Olympics.

Why Not Take A Ride On "Waves Of Lust"?

8 August 2012 8:59 AM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

For all the talk of our declining values and increasing permissiveness in our society, it's hard not to feel downright prudish watching Waves Of Lust, an early effort from Ruggero Deodato (Cannibal Holocaust). Even if you can chalk up some of that dissonance to it being an import, Waves challenges even the most sexually charged modern feature films for sheer prurience, without even trying to disguise its intentions behind a curtain of respectability (we're looking at you, Shame). Unfortunately, it ignores nearly every other quality of film production to do it, but that doesn't mean you won't have a darn good time.

If Last House on the Left was a remake of The Virgin Spring, then this could similarly be called a callback to Knife in the Water, Polanski's early thriller. Rich, demented industrialist Giorgio (John Steiner) invites the young couple Irem (Al Cliver) and Barbara (Silvia Dionisio) aboard his yacht for the weekend, »

DVD Release: Waves of Lust

27 June 2012 3:26 PM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

DVD Release Date: July 31, 2012

Price: DVD $19.98

Studio: Raro Video/Entertainment One

Elizabeth Turner turns up the heat in Waves of Lust.

Sex and violence flows freely in Italian genre filmmaker Ruggero Deodato’s 1975 thriller Waves of Lust.

The movie focuses on two carefree youngsters, Irem (Al Cliver) and Barbara (Silvia Dionisio), who are invited for a weekend cruise on a yacht owned by Giorgio (John Steiner), a ruthless and cynical industrialist, who is married to Silvia (Elizabeth Turner), a disturbed woman who allows herself to be physically and mentally abused by him. Silvia then forms a love triangle with Irem and Barbara who conspire against Giorgio, whose misogyny and paranoia pushes him over the edge into murder.

A minor cult film like many of Deodato’s imports (his most popular remains the 1980 gross-out Cannibal Holocaust), Waves of Lust is initially reminiscent of Roman Polanski’s (Carnage) 1962 thriller Knife in the Water. »

DVD Review: 'Carnage'

18 June 2012 12:00 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ Carnage (2011) sees director Roman Polanski returns to the minimalist cinematic stencil of his claustrophobic debut Knife in the Water. Adapted from Yasmina Reza's play God of Carnage and starring Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet, John C. Reilly and Christopher Waltz, Polanski's latest foray into the bourgeoisie world of Manhattan is a perfectly pitched, pressure cooker of a chamber piece with a ferociously cynical comedic framework.

Box Office: The Dark Knight Beating The Avengers (Ticket Sales)

2 June 2012 6:18 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

The Dark Knight The Avengers has surpassed The Dark Knight at the domestic box office, to become the no. 3 biggest hit ever in the Us/Canada. Or has it? Joss Whedon’s The Avengers added $5.65m at the North American box office on Friday, June 1, according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. That raised the action flick’s domestic cume to $538.11m. Directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Christian Bale, The Dark Knight cumed at $533.3m in 2008. But which movie has sold more tickets, The Avengers or The Dark Knight? Looking at both films’ totals, the obvious answer is The Dark Knight, which was shown at fewer IMAX houses, was not in 3D, and was released in 2008. In fact, even while ignoring IMAX and 3D surcharges, The Dark Knight‘s adjusted domestic box-office take — to better reflect the actual number of tickets sold — would be $580m. In other words, »

Roman Polanski/Prada Ad A Therapy

22 May 2012 4:55 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Ben Kingsley: Roman Polanski Prada commercial A Therapy Roman Polanski is everywhere at the Cannes Film Festival. Polanski is the subject (and interviewee) of Laurent Bouzereau’s documentary Roman Polanski: A Film Memoir. He unveiled a restored print of his 1979/1980 Best Picture César and Oscar nominee Tess, starring Nastassja Kinski. And he is the director of the short film / Prada commercial A Therapy. Starring Helena Bonham Carter as a poor little Prada-clad rich woman and Ben Kingsley as her therapist and Prada aficionado, A Therapy was shown prior to the Tess screening. (Please scroll down.) Co-written by Polanski and The Ghost Writer‘s Ronald Harwood, A Therapy boasts music by The Queen‘s Alexandre Desplat, gorgeous cinematography by Girl with the Pearl Earring‘s Eduardo Serra, production design by The Godfather‘s Dean Tavoularis, and editing by The Pianist‘s Hervé de Luze. Ah, and costume design by, I guess, »

Box Office: The Avengers Surpasses Star Wars?

22 May 2012 4:08 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

The Avengers: Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Chris Evans as Captain America With a cume of $463.35m after 18 days, Joss Whedon’s The Avengers has surpassed George LucasStar Wars ($460.99m) at the domestic box office, thus officially becoming the fifth biggest blockbuster in history. By next weekend, The Avengers should surpass LucasStar Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace ($474.54m) to become the fourth biggest domestic blockbuster in history. Impressive? Of course. Any way you look at it, The Avengers‘ box-office performance, whether in North America or abroad, has been phenomenal. The Disney / Marvel actioner has surpassed the expectations of most — if not all — prognosticators. Now, having said that, The Avengers is not a box-office phenomenon on a par with Star Wars. Not even close. Studio/media spin and p.r. b.s. aside, the true barometer of a movie’s success is how many tickets it has sold, »

The Avengers: Chris Evans / Captain America, Robert Downey Jr / Tony Stark / Iron Man The Avengers easily topped the North American box office this past weekend, grossing $55.64m according to box-office actuals found at Box Office Mojo. At a distant second place with $25.53m was Battleship, a $209m Universal release that has turned out to be a major bomb domestically. On Sunday, The Avengers passed the $450m mark in North America. It is the fastest movie to reach that milestone: 17 days. At no. 2, Christopher Nolan / Christian Bale’s The Dark Knight reached $450m after 27 days. (Adjusted for inflation, The Dark Knight reached that milestone on Day 21.) The Avengers vs. The Dark Knight: Ticket Sales Now, which movie has sold more tickets, The Avengers or The Dark Knight? On Day 17, The Avengers‘ cume stands at $457.66m; The Dark Knight‘s was $393.75m. Adjusted for inflation, The Dark Knight‘s take goes up to approximately $429m. »
