The contender, part 1 by Anne-Katrin Titze

7 April 2015 6:10 AM, PDT | eyeforfilm.co.uk | See recent eyeforfilm.co.uk news »

Marlon Brando

What do Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather and Apocalypse Now, Bernardo Bertolucci's Last Tango In Paris, Elia Kazan's A Streetcar Named Desire, On the Waterfront, and Viva Zapata!, Daniel Mann's The Teahouse Of The August Moon, Edward Dmytryk's The Young Lions, Gillo Pontecorvo's Burn!, Lewis Milestone's Mutiny On The Bounty, Guys And Dolls directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz and One-Eyed Jacks have in common? Brando the movie star in Stevan Riley's documentary, Listen To Me Marlon, becomes Marlon, the man.

After a conversation with Parabellum director Lukas Valenta Rinner at New Directors/New Films, I met up with Stevan at Lincoln Center.

"Brando was himself fascinated by these same topics of truth and lies, of myth and fantasy and reality."

Hundreds of hours of Brando's audio recordings had gone unheard until Riley took his pick and put together this fascinating portrait. »

Watch: Explore Master Cinematographer Vittorio Storaro's Bold Use Of Color In This Supercut

27 March 2015 2:15 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Even if you can’t immediately place his name, you’ve undoubtedly seen his work. “Apocalpyse Now,” “The Last Emperor,” “Last Tango in Paris,” "Ladyhawke,” “Reds,” and “Dick Tracy” to name but a few. Vittorio Storaro is a master cinematographer who has contributed his immense talent to over five dozen film and television projects during his epic (and ongoing) 50-plus year career. His work has garnered him three Oscars for Best Cinematography (for “The Last Emperor,” “Reds,” and “Apocalypse Now”), as well as a fourth nomination (“Dick Tracy”). One of the defining elements of Storaro’s work is his use of color. As a 3-minute supercut from Vimeo user movement_of_time professes, Storaro is “the man who uses color shades as a poet uses words. In every [one of] his film[s] the choice of a specific color is rigidly connected with the 'ideology' of history, and the color does not simply duplicate the scene information, »

New Directors/New Films Review: Gripping 'Listen To Me Marlon' Reveals The Man Behind The Myth Of Marlon Brando

27 March 2015 1:48 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“I coulda been a contender! I coulda been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am, let's face it.” That classic scene from “On The Waterfront” was part and parcel behind Marlon Brando's release into the stratosphere of supercool. Beginning with his stage debut as Stanley Kowalski in “A Streetcar Named Desire” (which he, of course, reprised in the 1951 film adaptation), his film debut in “The Men,” and a string of larger-than-life roles culminating with his Oscar-winning turn as Terry Malloy in 'Waterfront,' Hollywood was Brando's oyster in the 1950s, and a man became a cultural symbol. Through these roles, and future titanic turns in “The Godfather,” “Apocalypse Now,” and “The Last Tango in Paris,” we know and remember Marlon Brando as one of the greatest screen actors of all time. But, what of the man behind the actor? This question fuels Stevan Riley's documentary, »

‘The Ribald Tales of Canterbury / Tasty’ Review (Vinegar Syndrome)

The Ribald Tales Of Canterbury

(dir: Bud Lee, 1985)

We’ve all been there at some point. A long journey with nothing to do. All of a sudden, someone comes up with the idea of sharing stories and laughs to help pass the time. Yeah, maybe not everyone has been there, but I had to set the scene somehow right? The first film on this double feature release from Vinegar Syndrome follows the journey of a group of noblemen and women headed by the Hostess Hyapatia Lee (Let’s Get Physical) en route to Canterbury. She proposes a wager with her fellow travellers. Each places the grand sum of 20 pence in to a small pouch and whoever can recall the best erotic tale on their journey wins all. It’s certainly a novel way to pass the time! The stories range from a humble knight having a surprising (in the best »

Why Fifty Shades Of Grey could be good for geek cinema

18 February 2015 4:32 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Despite mostly negative reviews, the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie has been a massive hit. It could be good news for cinema as a whole...

I’m in a coffee shop in the middle of London, and I keep overhearing the same two words murmured at neighbouring tables or from passers-by: Fifty Shades. I look at my phone, and Fifty Shades is trending on Twitter.

A bus has just gone past in the pouring February rain, and there’s Fifty Shades Of Grey on the side: Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson in a clinch, lips parted, her arms raised above her head. It’s an image just sexy enough to advertise the film’s erotic promise, but not so filthy as to cause alarm: presumably, the handcuffs and nipple clamps are all just out of shot.

Meanwhile, a news story’s doing the rounds about a man glassed by a »

DVD Review: "Kink" (2014), Inside The "Real" World Of Bdsm

16 February 2015 3:03 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

"Sex is only dirty if you're doing it right."- Woody Allen

Well, "Fifty Shades of Grey" has finally opened and- predictably- it looks to be an international blockbuster. All over the world, Bdsm ("Bondage, Discipline, Submission and Masochism", for the uninitiated) will be the flavor of the week as couples dabble in getting naughty. But the very notion that the real world of this peculiar sexual fetish could be accurately presented in a none-threatening, Harlequin romance-like manner is negated by the fact that the film is rated R and has been released by a major studio. True, there was a brief period of time when major movie studios did push the envelope in terms of depicting raw sexual freedoms. Bertolucci's "Last Tango in Paris" was made over forty years ago but would be considered un-releasable by the Hollywood suits who run the industry today. Even United Artists, »

How Does Fifty Shades of Grey Compare to Other Films' in Sex-to-Runtime? (Yes, We Timed Them)

14 February 2015 3:00 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

How much sex is actually in Fifty Shades of Grey? A recent Washington Post article placed the actual runtime of "actual sex and sexual-related activity" at 14 minutes and 17 seconds out of the movie's 125-minute runtime. Fun trivia fact. But it also led us to the question, "How does that fit in with the pantheon of sexy movies?" That is to say, of all the movies that are ostensibly sex-focused in the history of films (and sex), how many of them actually devote large portions of their runtime to Nsfw moments?

Fifty Shades Of Grey—movie review

13 February 2015 5:59 AM, PST | Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy | See recent Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy news »

Sex sells. Movie producers and marketers have known this since the earliest days of silent films. But mainstream pictures tend to steer clear of kinky sex; films like Last Tango in Paris and Nine ½ Weeks made headlines but didn’t play to mass audiences here in the U.S. The canny people behind the adaptation of E.L. James runaway best-seller Fifty Shades of Grey have made all the right moves, not pushing the envelope beyond an R rating and couching its s&m quotient within the confines of a somewhat conventional romantic drama. Whether or not this will please the readers of James’ writing I cannot say, but it works surprisingly well as a movie. It all boils down to...

Berlin Film Review: ‘Eisenstein in Guanajuato’

11 February 2015 8:07 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Set in Mexico during the “10 days that shook” Russia’s greatest silent filmmaker, “Eisenstein in Guanajuato” marks Peter Greenaway’s raucous attempt to capture his all-time cinema idol at his moment of greatest personal discovery and deepest professional frustration — which, the film takes great delight in suggesting, coincided with the loss of his virginity, at age 33, so far from his (still) homophobic homeland. Determined to breathe fresh life into a medium he insists has scarcely evolved in the 90 years since Sergei Eisenstein made “Strike,” Greenaway has wrought an outrageously unconventional and deliriously profane biopic that could take decades to be duly appreciated.

Unspooling like some sort of blasphemous passion play, the film depicts Eisenstein’s symbolic death and subsequent resurrection via an act of gay sex. “Somebody has opened the door to a wet and weepy dirty hurricane,” the Russian gushes not long after his studly Mexican guide, Palomino Canedo »

Non-American Born Best Director Oscar Winners

11 February 2015 7:24 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

With the DGA Award in hand, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu has become a frontrunner in the best director Oscar race for Birdman.

Only seven winners of the DGA Award have not won the best director Oscar in the 66 years that the Directors Guild of America has given the award. The most recent case was two years ago, when Ben Affleck wasn’t even nominated for the best director Oscar for Argo, which won best picture.

No American has won for best director since 2011 and if Inarritu, who is from Mexico, takes the Oscar this year, the trend will continue. Inarritu could become the second Latin American director to win for best director, following Alfonso Cuaron’s win last year.

In the 86 years since the Academy Awards’ inception, 89 Oscars have been given for best director. Twenty-six awards (29 percent) went to non-American born directors.

Week in Review: New details on Terrence Malick’s ‘Knight of Cups’ and ‘Voyage of Time’

6 February 2015 12:58 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Terrence Malick is having a busy week, which for the director who formerly took ages between films, must rank among his busiest. Malick has first been working on a documentary called Voyage of Time that will incorporate footage from The Tree of Life and be “a celebration of the universe, displaying the whole of time, from its start to its final collapse,” according to a press release via HitFix. One version of the film will be just 40 minutes long, will feature narration by Brad Pitt, and will appear on IMAX screens. Another longer version will appear in traditional theaters and will be narrated by Cate Blanchett. Neither version has a release date just yet but are being planned for 2016.

His latest film however, Knight of Cups, is about to premiere at the Berlinale on February 8 (watch the trailer here), and the full plot revealed for the film sounds perfectly Malick-esque. »

Film Review: ‘Chuck Norris Vs. Communism’

5 February 2015 8:27 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Don’t be alarmed: “Chuck Norris Vs. Communism” is not a remake of “Invasion U.S.A.,” the 1985 Cannon Films extravaganza that pitted the double-barreled action star against hordes of Russian guerrillas trying to turn America into a Soviet republic. But Norris’ films, and others like them, may have played a small but significant role in stoking the fires of dissent in 1980s Romania — or so argues director Ilinca Calugareanu’s lively documentary about censorship and cinephilia in the darkest days of the Eastern Bloc. Bolstered by an irresistible title and stylish, re-enactment-heavy direction from first-timer Calugareanu, this breezily entertaining bonbon can expect ample fest and niche theatrical exposure, plus brisk international TV sales.

Calugareanu’s film is nominally an extended love letter to Irinia Nistor, a noted film critic who began her career as a translator for Romania’s lone state-run television network (Tvr), where she bristled at her role in »

Here's How Much Sex to Expect in 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

2 February 2015 9:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It may have only gotten an R rating instead of the dreaded Nc-17, but don't be fooled: There's plenty of sex in "Fifty Shades of Grey."

According to website Mr. Skin, which collects information about nudity and sex scenes in movies, "Fifty Shades" offers up a whopping 20 full minutes of sex throughout its 100-minute running time -- roughly 1/5 of the length of the film. And things get steamier from there.

The Sunday Times reports that according to Mr. Skin, "Fifty Shades'" tally represents more sex than is featured in all 100 R-rated films released in the U.S. in 2014 combined. To put that even further into perspective, The Guardian writes that famously salacious films such as "Last Tango in Paris" and "Eyes Wide Shut" only featured nine minutes and two minutes of sex, respectively.

So "Fifty Shades" fans worried that the flick will just be a watered-down version of the steamy novels, »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Listen to Me Marlon’

31 January 2015 1:59 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Often called the greatest actor of his generation, if not all 20th-century cinema, Marlon Brando was also one of the most enigmatic, unpredictable, even damaged of movie stars offscreen. That complexity is limned as well as a documentary possibly could manage in “Listen to Me Marlon,” which draws on an extraordinary estate archive of personal materials to let the man tell his story (and analyze) himself. Sure to hold surprises for even those obsessives who’ve absorbed every Brando performance and factoid, this fascinating, artful pastiche merits specialized theatrical release in addition to inevitable cable and rental sales.

The title comes from self-hypnosis tapes we hear that the late subject made for himself, one among umpteen strategies for finding some inner tranquility. While there’s plenty of evidence here that Brando was a “difficult” person, and frequently a disastrous influence on those who loved him, the thing that comes through »

Variety Critics Pick Their Favorite Film Sex Scenes

20 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With sex and Hollywood in the spotlight as the debut of Universal’s “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie approaching, Variety critics weigh in on their favorite movie sex scenes.

Justin Chang

 

“Don’t Look Now”

(Nicolas Roeg, 1973)

This notorious sequence, featuring Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie, comes feverishly close to capturing the close-quarters tenderness of a loving marriage.

 

“Late Marriage”

(Dover Kosashvili, 2001)

Ronit Elkabetz and Lior Ashkenazi star in one of the most unguarded and naturalistic sex scenes ever filmed, full of cranky pillow talk, playfully feigned orgasms and free-flowing nudity.

 

“The Dreamers”

(Bernardo Bertolucci, 2003)

A naked Eva Green forcibly seduces a shy Michael Pitt, who is both aghast and aroused — a fair assessment of the viewer’s reaction as well.

Scott Foundas

 

Last Tango in Paris

(Bernardo Bertolucci, 1972)

The butter scene ensured notoriety, but another moment — two lonely people naked on a mattress, trying to bring each other to »

The Missouri Breaks | Blu-ray Review

20 January 2015 9:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Arthur Penn’s notorious, arguably ‘revisionist’ Western The Missouri Breaks makes it to Blu-ray courtesy of Kino Lorber, with packaging that keeps the film’s initial infamous discrepancies alive and well with star Marlon Brando’s name retaining top billing. Though it would be Brando’s last sizeable role, the film’s main protagonist is really Jack Nicholson as a matter-of-fact horse thief who runs up against a prosperous man who holds himself above the law by failing to recognize that the rest of the country’s outlying frontiers have them.

The term revisionist is problematic in reference to Penn’s film, though it attempts to make us sympathize with a villain positioned against a civilized businessman who’s nearly as irredeemable. Two wrongs don’t make a right, so if anything, Penn’s adaptation of Thomas McGuane’s script is anarchist at best. Plagued with a troubled production thanks »
