Apu Trilogy Coming to Criterionc Plus Joon-ho Bong Visits Criterion Closet

10 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The picture above was posted to the Criterion Collection Facebook page with the caption "A 35mm negative gets the white glove treatment in Italy," and as many of the commenters have already noted, the film that's getting the delicate treatment is Satyajit Ray's Pather Panchali (1955), the first film in Ray's "Apu Trilogy" along with Aparajito (1956) and Apur Sansar (1959). The trilogy is considered by many to be one of the best of all-time and Roger Ebert included the collective trilogy as one of his "Great Movies" entries opening his review with: The great, sad, gentle sweep of "The Apu Trilogy" remains in the mind of the moviegoer as a promise of what film can be. Standing above fashion, it creates a world so convincing that it becomes, for a time, another life we might have lived. The three films, which were made in India by Satyajit Ray between 1950 and »

Watch: Bong Joon-Ho Visits The Criterion Closet, Gets New Copy Of Movie Park Chan-Wook Never Gave Back & More

16 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With "Snowpiercer" now playing, Bong Joon-ho is doing the rounds in support of the film, but he took a few moments while in New York City to stop by The Criterion Collection and do what we've all dreamed of doing—grabbing as many copies of their releases as he can. As always, it's fun stuff to see what catches the eye of filmmakers, and Bong Joon-Ho is no different. Works by directors as varied as Nagisa Oshima, Yasujiro Ozu, Guillermo Del Toro and Roman Polanski grab his attention, and so too does Haskell Wexler's "Medium Cool," which Bong Joon-Ho reveals he loaned to Park Chan-Wook... who never gave it back. That's just bad manners. Watch below. [The Criterion Collection] »

Albert Maysles: Gimme Some Truth

By

Alex Simon

I'm sick and tired of hearing things/From uptight, short-sighted, narrow-minded hypocritics/All I want is the truth/Just gimme some truth/I've had enough of reading things/By neurotic, psychotic, pig-headed politicians/All I want is the truth/Just gimme some truth. – John Lennon

Albert and David Maysles are generally regarded as the fathers of the modern American documentary film. Beginning in the early 1960s, their pioneering work with contemporaries such as Robert Drew, Richard Leacock and D.A. Pennebaker helped launch the “Direct Cinema” movement, devoted to capturing real life as closely as possible, in all its unscripted reality. Today, filmmakers like Michael Moore, reality TV and every news magazine on the air and on the web can trace their linage back to the Maysles brothers.

Their three defining features: Salesman (1968), a sobering and often hilarious look at the lives »

Film Review: ‘Age of Panic’

24 March 2014 1:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The tumultuous, hotly contested 2012 French presidential election, pitting right-winger Nicolas Sarkozy against socialist Francois Hollande, provides the larger maelstrom against which a couple’s custody battle unfolds in Gallic helmer-scribe Justine Triet’s frantic farce “Age of Panic.” The exes’ skill at sweeping lovers, friends, colleagues, babysitters and total strangers into their emotional vortex adds greatly to the absurdity wending its way through the streets, packed to bursting with masses of warring party enthusiasts. Placing a couple’s inability to mediate visiting rights within the context of extreme political polarization, this whirlwind comedy might prove particularly timely for American auds.

The day begins in total chaos. Television reporter Laetitia (Laetitia Dosch) is on the phone with her boss, explaining why she’s late in covering the elections, while her little daughters scream at the top of their lungs and her overly helpful b.f., Virgil (Virgil Vernier), gives officious instructions »
