Morgan Neville’s Keith Richards Doc to Premiere on Netflix

28 July 2015 8:35 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Keith Richards: Under the Influence,” Morgan Neville’s documentary that promises to give an unprecedented look into the sounds and influences of the Rolling Stones legend, will have its worldwide premiere in September on Netflix.

Neville received an Academy Award in 2014 for the documentary on backup singers, “Twenty Feet From Stardom,” which includes mentions of the Stones’ classic “Gimme Shelter.”

“There’s no one who could bring this unprecedented look into the musical influences of Keith Richards to life as distinctively as Morgan Neville,” said Lisa Nishimura, Netflix veep of original documentary programming. “Our viewers around the world are going to love the rare moments he has captured.”

Neville’s credits also include documentaries on Pearl Jam, Johnny Cash and Ray Charles, but, he said, “if there’s a Mount Rushmore of Rock ’n’ Roll, Keith’s face is surely on it. He has always represented the soul of »

Barbara Kopple Reflects on Joys and Dangers of Filming ‘Harlan County, USA’

24 July 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In Barbara Kopple’s 40-year career as one of America’s greatest documentary directors, the 68-year-old two-time Oscar winner (she turns 69 on July 30) has been on a quest for intimacy in powerful historical portraits. Her newest film, “Hot Type: 150 Years of the Nation,” about the venerable left-leaning weekly, preemed at MoMA this year, but Variety first noted Kopple in 1973 as she embarked upon her directorial debut, “Harlan County, USA.” Steven Gaydos

What had you been doing prior to the start of “Harlan County”?

Tom Brandon was helping me raise money for the film, and we were working on grants, going back and forth to Harlan County to raise money. Our lights would get cut off on our place in New York, and we’d be raising money to pay the light bill and working there by candlelight. In Harlan County, we were in the coal fields, living with bucket showers and outhouses. »

How Hollywood soundtracks repeat the same old tune

9 June 2015 9:57 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

If you see a movie for the first time and swear you've heard the score before, it may not be your imagination...

Last month, the American Federation of Musicians of the United States and Canada (Afm) sued six major studios for reusing film soundtracks in other films without paying the appropriate compensation. It's the kind of news that will make people roll their eyes. Ah yes, they'll say after seeing the headlines. Typical Hollywood. Not even the music's original any more.

But go beyond the headlines about reusing the same music too much and delve into the lawsuit and it reveals an interesting insight into the kind of situations where music does get repeated.

The lawsuit, it soon becomes evident, isn't about the use of music in itself (a quick browse through the soundtracks for the titles in question, such as This Means War or Argo, reveals that they have »

Iris Review

15 May 2015 10:28 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It is not surprising that documentarian Albert Maysles thought that fashion icon Iris Apfel would make a compelling subject for a film. Both artists kept on working late into the twilight of their careers, confounding expectations. Maysles, who died in March at the age of 88, will forever be one of the non-fiction film’s greatest forerunners, responsible for such indelible works as Gimme Shelter and Grey Gardens. Apfel, now 93, still works tirelessly and continues to be a no-holds-barred trendsetter of the New York fashion scene. Long beyond their time, both Maysles and Apfel will be immortalized by aspirants of the art form they championed.

With the exception of In Transit, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in April, Iris marks Maysles’ last film. And while it may have a master both in front of and behind the camera, despite its often-effortless entertainment, this is a minor work. Nevertheless, Apfel is a terrific subject, »

George Lucas: 25 Things You Didn't Know About the 'Star Wars' Guru

14 May 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

George Lucas didn't just create the "Star Wars" universe. The filmmaker, who turns 71 on May 14, pretty much created the cinematic universe we live in now, the ones whose cornerstones include the Thx sound system at your multiplex, the Pixar movies that have dominated animation for the past 20 years, and the Industrial Light & Magic special-effects house, whose aesthetic has ruled the Hollywood blockbuster for nearly four decades. He's the pioneer of the effects-driven action spectacle and the conversion from celluloid to digital, the two trends that, for better and worse, have defined Hollywood's output for nearly 20 years.

As ubiquitous as Lucas and his creations loom in our cinematic dreamscapes, there's still a lot that most people don't know about him, from how he got his start to the famous folks who mentored him or were mentored by him, from the size of his fortune to what he plans to do now »

‘Iris’ Review: Albert Maysles’ Penultimate Film Focuses on a Style Icon

30 April 2015 4:38 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The recent death of American documentarian Albert Maysles places something of an unfair burden on “Iris,” his penultimate production. (“In Transit” was completed but has yet to be released.) This lightweight portrait of a style icon is best enjoyed without being seen as the one of the final films in a distinguished career that included such classic films as “Grey Gardens” and “Gimme Shelter.” In terms of personal style, Iris Apfel might be seen as a distant cousin to “Gardens” protagonist Little Edie Beale — both women have a taste level and a gift for fashionable improvisation that all the »

Review: Iris, Albert Maysles' Last Solo Film

28 April 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Meet Iris. The most precious 91-year-old on Earth. Now meet Iris, the most charming documentary about the most darling 91-year-old on Earth. (Note: Iris is now 93, which means this cover girl is still en vogue.)  Iris is directed by the late, legendary pioneer Albert Maysles (Grey Gardens, Gimme Shelter) and documents the life of the jazzy, posh Iris Apbel, who made fashion her bitch. "If you hang around long enough, everything comes back," she says with a zippy, wide smile. (This means you can breathe easy, parachute pants will be cool again, someday.)Her wardrobe is based on what she finds while thrifting and window shopping, and now, whatever fashion designers send her. Just like the film, Iris' pizazz is untouchable. She's now 93, a...

Documakers Hail the Impact of Albert Maysles

14 April 2015 11:46 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Before his death last month at the age of 88, legendary documentary filmmaker, Albert Maysles was in post-production on what would become one of his last films, “In Transit.”

The docu, about the passengers aboard the busiest long-distance train route in America — Amtrak’s Empire Builder — will bow in Tribeca’s world documentary feature competition.

Together with brother David, who died in 1987, Maysles directed many of the documentary genre’s seminal films including “Grey Gardens,” “Gimme Shelter,” “Meet Marlon Brando” and “Salesman.”

In Transit,” which Albert Maysles co-directed with Nelson Walker, Lynn True, David Usui and Ben Wu, was assembled out of three trips on the Empire last winter, with each of the five directors filming separate subjects.

“This film in many ways represents a return to Albert’s (classics),” Walker says. “Yes, it’s different than a lot of other Maysles films in that this one is about many people, »

We Were All Suckered by 'The Jinx' -- and That's Ok

20 March 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

You'd think people would be happy with the finale this past Sunday of HBO's docu-series "The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst," Not only did the six-episode true-crime drama end with the kind of neat apparent-confession that real life seldom drops into the laps of journalists, but the episode was preceded by less than 24 hours by the actual arrest of its subject on a murder charge related to the crimes discussed on the show. Viewers got a bang-up ending, and the victims' families finally get to see the alleged killer face a court of law. Everybody wins, right?

And yet, there's been nothing but handwringing over the ethical questions raised by the conduct of filmmakers Andrew Jarecki and Marc Smerling and the fortuitous timing of the arrest. Jarecki and Smerling taped Durst's seemingly self-incriminating remarks ("What the hell did I do? Killed them all, of course.") during a 2012 interview, »

Week in Review: Christopher Nolan leads charge to save celluloid

13 March 2015 9:19 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Film and celluloid is going the way of vinyl. The shift from tactile mediums to ones and zeroes has happened so quickly that for a while it had looked like these records and film strips that we had used to record our artistic history for the entire 20th century would suddenly become obsolete and erased forever. While vinyl has experienced a resurgence among those who truly love music, the already struggling movie theaters and multiplexes have all but done away with film in place of digital projection. Kodak’s film sales have dropped 96 percent in the last decade.

In fact, you can almost count on two hands the number of major filmmakers still actively using film when making studio pictures today: Quentin Tarantino, J.J. Abrams (who is making Star Wars: Episode VII on film), Wes Anderson (The Grand Budapest Hotel), and Christopher Nolan.

Watch The Trailer for Iris, A Documentary By Albert Maysles

11 March 2015 5:36 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Filmmaker Albert Maysles, director of iconic documentaries Gimme Shelter and Grey Gardens, died Thursday, March 5, 2015 in New York at age 88.

Here’s a first look at the trailer for his film Iris, which had its world premiere at the 2014 New York Film Festival. Iris pairs Maysles with Iris Apfel, the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 93-year-old style maven who has had an outsized presence on the New York fashion scene for decades.

More than a fashion film, the documentary is a story about creativity and how, even at Iris’ advanced age, a soaring free spirit continues to inspire. Iris portrays a singular woman whose enthusiasm for fashion, art and people are life’s sustenance and reminds us that dressing, and indeed life, is nothing but an experiment.

Despite the abundance of glamour in her current life, she continues to embrace the values and work ethic established during a middle-class Queens upbringing during the Great Depression. »

Arthouse Audit: Maysles' '70s 'Grey Gardens' Best of Limited Releases

8 March 2015 11:12 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

In what is something of a loss to core specialized big city theaters, Fox Searchlight opted to releases its sequel "The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" wide this week. Its playdates include many of the top theaters, but with grosses not as strong as they'd likely have been with more limited play. All documentaries, the leading new entries this week include a 40-year-old film, "Grey Gardens" (Janus Films), co-directed by Albert Maysles, one of the founders of modern nonfiction film who died on Thursday at the age of 88. Two other docs also opened, with Abramorama's "An Honest Liar" besting the much higher profile "Merchants of Doubt." Opening "Grey Gardens" (Janus)  (reissue) $12,300 in 1 theater; PSA: $12,300 This classic documentary about two women - mother and daughter, relatives of Jacqueline Kennedy and eccentric East Hampton denizens - is along with "Gimme Shelter" the best known of the many top films of »

Albert Maysles defined truth on film from 'Salesman' to 'Gimme Shelter'

6 March 2015 1:45 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

One of the titans of the documentary world has passed today. There are many filmmakers whose work can be said to have influenced other artists, and certainly one of the ways we weigh the worth of an artistic legacy is by the way it seeps into the larger culture. By that standard, Albert Maysles was enormously important, and the mark he leaves on the definition of a documentary is immeasurable. "Grey Gardens" is perhaps the most famous of his films, and one of the things I realized when I first saw it was that documentaries can be about anything. The point of the process is truth, and Maysles was ferociously dedicated to capturing moments of almost breathtaking truth. One of the first pieces of his work that I saw was "Gimme Shelter," the documentary about the 1969 Altamont concert where Hell's Angels stabbed a concertgoer to death, an event which was recorded on film. »

R.I.P. Albert Maysles

6 March 2015 1:33 PM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Earlier today, the legendary documentarian Albert Maysles passed away at the age of 88. A few years ago, I was lucky enough to briefly meet Maysles at a dinner and found him to be a very kind man, so it saddens me to report on his passing. The man, along with his brother David Maysles, more or less invented the modern day documentary. I’ll leave it to the obituary in the New York Times (which you can see below) to properly go into the legacy Maysles leaves behind, but I did want to chime in briefly about this loss for cinema. There may never be another filmmaker like Albert Maysles. It goes without saying…he will be missed. I think you really have to look at the huge body of work that Maysles leaves behind, especially when you consider how long he worked as well. Perhaps best known for the »

Grey Gardens Filmmaker Albert Maysles Dies at 88

6 March 2015 11:20 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Filmmaker Albert Maysles, whose pioneering documentary work chronicled some of rock music's most transformational moments, died Thursday. Maysles had battled pancreatic cancer and become ill about a month before his death, Erika Dilday, executive director of the Maysles Institute, told Newsweek. "He died at home surrounded by his family," she said. Maysles collaborated alongside his brother David on films that showcased the emergent talents of such icons as Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. The Stones' blues-infused, sexually charged sound was on display in Maysles' 1970 music film classic, Gimme Shelter. Before that film, Maysles helmed 1964's What's Happening! »
