Five Most Controversial Films Rated Nc-17 #4: ‘The Cook, the Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover’

30 December 2010 3:26 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Cook, the Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover (now say that five times, fast), was the first in a series of films that eventually broke the camel’s back and lead to the creation of the Nc-17 rating category 1990. The film, released in 1989 and directed by Peter Greenaway, was given the choice by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) of either self-applying an X rating or settling for release as ‘unrated.’ By 1989, however, this was hardly a fair choice. Since the 1969 release of Midnight Cowboy, the X rating had grown to become synonymous with the porn industry and both X rated and unrated films were unwelcome in many mainstream theaters.

In the face of the decision, Harvey Weinstein from Miramax brought the film to the MPAA’s appeals board, and Helen Mirren, the film’s star, flew over from England to defend it.

Visual Linguist: A Darren Aronofsky Profile (Part 1)

29 December 2010 1:57 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With his latest feature Black Swan currently on release in North America, Trevor Hogg profiles the career of filmmaker Darren Aronofsky in the first of a two-part feature...

“When I was a kid, me and my sister and friends used to put on these little shows,” recalled American moviemaker Darren Aronofsky, the son of two school teachers. “We used to put on records and lip-sync or dance to them. We’d invite the parents up and during this one show, I’ll never forget, I turned off the lights and… had the spotlight [a big flashlight] on my sister dancing to some music… And my Dad screamed at me, ‘Turn on the lights!’ What I learned from that is that if it gets in the way of the performance, then don’t do it.” Along with a fascination with black and white photography, the young Brooklyn native found himself drawn to a controversial »

The Toronto Film Festival’s Essential 100 Movies

22 December 2010 11:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

It seems like only yesterday that the American Film Institute released their 100 Years...100 Movies [1] list. Actually though, it was over 10 years ago when we first got our look at that "definitive" list of the 100 best American movies. They then did a ten year anniversary of it in 2007 with only minor adjustments and both years Citizen Kane held the number one place as the best American movie. Of course, the problem with those lists is that they only list American films. While Hollywood might be considered the epicenter of film, the art form itself spans the globe, way beyond American borders. That's why the Toronto International Film Festival came up with their Essential 100 movies. Created by merging lists made by Toronto Film Festival supporters along with another made by their programmers, these are supposed to be the 100 essential movies every cinephile must see. And it starts off with a bang as Citizen Kane has been toppled. »

Black Swan raises the bar with striking and beautiful set of posters | Paul Owen

20 December 2010 6:13 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

British design studio's adverts for new Darren Aronofsky film echo Polish and Czech posters of the 60s and ballet advertisements of the early 20th century – to impressive effect

I'm looking forward to seeing Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan, the ballet thriller that the director views as a companion piece to his last film, the gripping and compassionate drama The Wrestler. But I'm also hoping to see the film's beautiful and striking posters on buses and bus shelters around the country. These are some of the most interesting and arresting movie posters I've seen for a long time.

The adverts were created by the British design studio Laboca and are influenced by Polish and Czech posters of the 60s and 70s, as well as ballet advertisements of the early 20th century. You can see the full set here. Three of the four take as their starting point some kind of dual »

Which cousin or coworker did you call during the traumatizing Larry King Live finale? You called someone. You didn't make it alone. That I know. Personally, I jumped on Im with Movieline's Julie Miller. Together, we decided Larry King's swan song was the tri-gamete lovechild of CNN Newsroom, Night of a Thousand Stars, and A Clockwork Orange. Scary. Join us and suspender your disbelief. »

The Studio Auteur: Stanley Kubrick

15 December 2010 3:38 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Throughout the 1960s-early 1970s, a combination of financial desperation, creative daring, and an adventurous movie-going public had produced a creative detonation in mainstream American movies not seen before or since.  Each year of the period seemed to bring at least one mightily ambitious visual experiment by a new contributor to the commercial movie scene, the “look” of that effort being as much a part of its identity as its characters and story.  One could pick no better representative of the trend than Stanley Kubrick, for no director of the time so extended the boundaries of mainstream commercial filmmaking, or what it meant to be a mainstream commercial filmmaker.

For the most part, Kubrick’s professional ascent was built on the taking of standard genres – the war story, science fiction tale, sword-and-sandal epic – and twisting them into shapes so singular that each Kubrick outing became an acknowledged one-of-a-kind classic.  Paths of Glory »

The Notable Films of 2011: Part One

13 December 2010 7:39 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Back for its third year (see the 2010 edition) and bigger than ever, today kicks off the first in a fifteen-part look at the various cinematic releases hitting the U.S. in 2011. Each 'part' contains brief descriptions and editorial opinion/analysis of varying length covering twenty films. Expect the remaining ones to go up between now and the first major releases in mid-January.

Like all cinematic lists set within a timeframe, there's some overlap. Some films here have already opened worldwide but have yet to hit the U.S., some upcoming films you'd expect to be here aren't because they're either still in development or have already announced 2012 release dates, some were on last year's list but got delayed so have been included again (but with all new analysis).

I confined my list to films that have either set 2011 release dates or had begun/completed production, and only films that have »

Bradley Cooper Pushes Drugs in Limitless Viral Ad Campaign

9 December 2010 6:17 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Forget red and blue pills; the clear pill is the last drug you’ll ever need! At least that’s what Bradley Cooper promises in his new promo for Limitless. The ad looks remarkably like the all-too-common pharmaceutical commercials on TV, but it’s actually part of a recently launched viral marketing campaign for the upcoming film.

The picture — directed by Neil Burger (The Illusionist) — is an adaptation of Alan Glynn’s novel, The Dark Fields, which focuses on Eddie Morra (Cooper), a writer who stumbles upon a performance-enhancing drug. The drug, known as Nzt, allows Morra to “access 100% of his brain, learn new languages and conquer Wall Street.” All’s well until the downside of the drug starts to affect him, with side effects such as “paralysis, psychosis, brain damage and sudden death.”

Limitless also stars Robert De Niro, Abbie Cornish (Bright Star) and Anna Friel (Land of the Lost »

*Live Blog* The Hollywood Reporter's Actors Roundtable

Y'all remember when I did this for the ladies so I figure it's twin-time. You have to have both pieces of a matching set. Not that I'm looking forward to this one as much. Impress or surprise me fellas! You're not actresses so you have to work harder to provide Film Experience jollies. (If you have time to watch the full video it's at the bottom of the post.)

1:00 Robert Duvall (Get Low) tells a rambling story about becoming an actor and reveals "my brothers were both professional singers." The Duvall Brothers, eh? I so wanna hear that record. Would it be like the Osmonds except with less smiling?

3:00 The discussion turns to acting as a rewarding profession. Colin Firth (The King's Speech) picks up this Duvall baton.

"American Psycho" -- The Musical?

6 December 2010 9:30 PM, PST | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

It feels like just last week I was writing about weird Broadway musical adaptations, possibly because it was just last week. In any event, The New York Post gave us a glimpse of possible addition to a future revision of that list: "American Psycho." Yes, the classic Bret Easton Ellis novel turned Mary Harron film about executives, executions, and admiring yourself naked in the mirror while having sex to the sounds of 80s pop will get the Broadway treatment in the near future. The man in charge of replacing the Phil Collins and Huey Lewis tunes with originals is Duncan Sheik, the recording artist who wrote the music for the Tony-winning "Spring Awakening." From The Post, his thoughts on the project:

"Think about Malcolm McDowell singing songs during 'A Clockwork Orange.' He sang 'Singing in the Rain'... Obviously, ['American Psycho' is] not for the people who want to see 'Elf.'"

‘American Psycho: The Musical’ Gets a Bloody Writer And Composer

6 December 2010 3:15 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

There are many times where I watch a movie and I think “man, that would make a great Broadway musical.” Okay I don’t, but for the sake of this, just go with it.  American Psycho, the 2000 film that re-launched the career of Christian Bale, was not one of those fake times. Yet surprisingly enough, it’s being adapted into a musical; even more surprising, it’s headed for the bright lights of Broadway. [Page Six]

Duncan Sheik has been tapped to compose the musical, and playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is hard at work on the book (first draft is expected to be turned in early next year). Here’s what Aguirre-Sacasa had to say about the project:

“There are murders, and they are on stage in full view of the audience,” Aguirre-Sacasa said. “An ax and a chef’s knife will be used. I think there’s going to be a lot of blood. »

Duvall Takes Issue With Fincher And Eisenberg's Perfectionism

6 December 2010 2:06 PM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Movie veteran Robert Duvall has challenged newcomer Jesse Eisenberg over The Social Network star's complicated filmmaking process in an awkward new roundtable interview.

The two actors joined Colin Firth, Mark Ruffalo and Ryan Gosling for The Hollywood Reporter chat and Duvall took the young star to task over his penchant for shooting take after take on a movie set.

Eisenberg confessed he liked director David Fincher's attention to detail and would do "like 50 takes" to perfect his character Mark Zuckerberg in certain scenes for The Social Network, adding he felt "48 of them were just terrible and mortifying".

Duvall was far from impressed, admitting he would have fallen out with the director if he was asked to perform the same scene over and over again.

He said, "The great Stanley Kubrick, who was known for shooting up to 100 takes of a scene, was an actor's enemy... I can point to movies that he's done with the worst performances I have ever seen in movies. The Shining, A Clockwork Orange. Terrible performances.

"Maybe they were great movies, but they are terrible performances.

"How does he know between the first take and the 70th take? What's that about...? Maybe it was good for you (Eisenberg). I don't quite get that."

Hearing from Fincher's Zodiac star Ruffalo that the director has always been meticulous, Duvall admitted he was glad he turned down a role in Fincher's Seven.

He added, "Maybe it was a good idea." »

American Psycho: The Musical Slashes Forward. Tom Cruise Involved?

It's been almost a year since last we spoke about bringing Patrick Bateman to Broadway in American Psycho: The Musical, but like every good ax-wielding killer, they always come back!

"Think about Malcolm McDowell singing songs during A Clockwork Orange. He sang 'Singing in the Rain,'" Duncan Sheik, the new show's composer told The New York Post in an interview comparing his musical to a brutal attack scene in the 1971 film.

Speaking of brutality, playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa tells the Post: "There are murders, and they are on stage in full view of the audience ... An ax and a chef's knife will be used. I think there's going to be a lot of blood."

The article also states that the producers hope to cast Tom Cruise for a cameo. In the book Patrick Bateman bumps into "Tom Cruise" in the elevator of the Upper West Side building where they both live. »
