Daily Viewing. Michel Legrand @ 80

24 February 2012 1:08 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Go to composer Michel Legrand's site and you'll be greeted by Barbra Streisand's newish rendition of one of his greatest hits, "The Windmills of Your Mind," originally composed for The Thomas Crown Affair (1968) — it won Legrand his first Oscar. This version opens Streisand's last album, What Matters Most, which, if you throw in the Deluxe Edition Bonus Disc, features eight more Legrand tunes. She's a fan. While Legrand won his second Oscar for his score for Summer of '42 (1971), it was Yentl (1983) that scored him his third win, plus two more nominations, one each for two songs Streisand sings in the film.

Les Films du Losange notes that Legrand turns 80 today, a fine occasion to remind ourselves that, before the "Windmills" years, Legrand worked with Godard (A Woman Is a Woman, Vivre sa vie, Band of Outsiders) and appeared in Agnès Varda's Cléo From 5 to 7 (1961) before he »

DGA Awards vs. Academy Awards: Foreign, Small, Controversial Movies Have Better Luck at the Oscars

9 January 2012 3:41 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

The DGA Awards vs. the Academy Awards: Usually But Not Always a Match. [Photo: Marlon Brando and Maria Schneider in Last Tango in Paris.] Since 1970, when the DGA instituted the five-nominee limit, a mere ten directors of (at least mostly) non-English-language films have received DGA nods: Lina Wertmüller (Seven Beauties, 1976), Wolfgang Petersen (Das Boot, 1982), Ingmar Bergman (Fanny and Alexander, 1983), Lasse Hallström (My Life As a Dog, 1987), Giuseppe Tornatore (Cinema Paradiso, 1990), Michael Radford (Il Postino / The Postman, 1995), Robert Benigni (Life Is Beautiful, 1998), Ang Lee (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, 2000), Julian Schnabel (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly), and Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 2009). The above list can be expanded to twelve if you include Bernardo Bertolucci for Last Tango in Paris, which has a sizable amount of English dialogue, and Michel Hazanavicius' French-made but Hollywood-set The Artist. During that same period (excepting 2011, as Oscar nominations will be announced only later this month), 21 directors of non-English-language films received Academy Award nominations.
